"The Adonis" : Looking Back At Public Sex And Perspective For Younger Men

"Adonis Memories, an immersive play that shares stories from patrons of the famed Adonis gay porn movie theater that was a Midtown Manhattan landmark from the 70s-90s," from IN OUR WORDS will be presented on Dec 3 and Dec 10, 2016 at Paddles NYC from 3 pm to 4:30 pm.


From BroadwayWorld.com: ADONIS MEMORIES Docudrama Gets Immersive Staging at Paddles NYC

IN OUR WORDS "is collecting stories and memories from people about their time at the Adonis... You can share a brief paragraph or as much as you like as you answer the questions below. You can fill out your name and email or remain anonymous - whatever is more comfortable for you."

Share your story here. This is a companion to the play "The Adonis" which has been in development and production several years, including a workshop production. The full production of "The Adonis" is planned to debut in New York City this Fall.

See a short video about the play "The Adonis" and consider making a contribution to help with costs.

Alan Bounville, Artistic Director of In Our Words, has more to say about the background and reason for "The Adonis" at In Our Words Makes Gay Sex Happen on Stage, how it relates to a "post-AIDS" younger generation of men, PrEP, and the decline of public sex venues – well worth reading.

Bounville is "younger" and pretty cute, too. I found his writing fascinating. Although I won't quote it here (not enough time, really!) I hope guys will read it. Good for 55-year-olds like me, good for guys in their 20s, too.

There is also a Facebook page and Twitter feed.

I will cross-post this on the Message Board section for NYC. It will also appear soon on the Paddles NYC Sex Listings page

For those interested in an idealized version of The Adonis, here's a clip of the classic 1970s gay porn flick "A Night At The Adonis". This is from our affiliate advertiser RetroMales and yes, if you join their site a small commission payment helps CFS stay online.





Description:
Quote:
Jack Wrangler and Malo star in this ground breaking vintage gay porn video by director Jack Deveau from Hand In Hand Films. Jack stars as a store owner who has designs on his husky employee, Malo. Malo turns down a date with his boss and goes to his hairdresser (Jayson MacBride), who promptly fucks him hard on the barber chair.

But Jack and Malo do meet later because, as this film demonstrates, throughout the 1970's everybody in New York City wound up at the Adonis Theatre sooner or later. From the balcony to the boiler room, director Jack Deveau does a good job of showing the wide range of customers (from young to mature, from leather to clean cut) engaging in all sort of sexual enjoyment.

In a restroom of the theatre, the manager and a leatherman share blowjobs with one another, the latter blowing onto the sucker's face. Meanwhile, as different Hand In Hand films are playing on the screen, Jack and the barber have met up with one another and are busy beating each other off, but disturbed by the constant intrusions.

Into another men's room, three men begin to get into one another. Malo is there and has one of the guy's mouth with his big cock while the other watches. The barber goes down on Jack's boner and Malo is shown plowing ass in the bathroom over the sink. Malo soon glides Geraldo's cock into an ass he was sucking, the film here becoming a full scale orgy.

Highlighting this orgy is a dual jackoff session by two Big Bill Elds. Truly a fitting tribute and realistic document about this dubious gay porn landmark at the height of its notoriety. Male Review. Overall, this classic gay porn movie is a nostalgic return to a carefree, gay sex hedonistic era. Bell bottoms and sideburns date this film, but the sex is timeless and still dick hardening today.
I actually have access to more clips from two middle scenes I can show show as well as the fourth, the grand finale. If there's interest, I can post those here. But of course, you could simply join RetroMales and see it all for yourself and then some.

Pardon the brief commercial announcement; at least it has action!

It is great that they are documenting that era while there are still people who lived it to tell their tales and first hand experiences.

That period after the sexual revolution and before AIDS was like nothing before or since....
