From the pages of national daily papers to newscasts and magazine shows this is what all the hoopla was about. Active military men perform masturbation auditions for future (straight) video work. Director Dirk Yates credits himself with discovering gay pornstars like Rick Donovan, Eric Manchester, Alex Carrington and Axel Garrett.
The general format to The Few... is similar to the once-popular "Old Reliable tapes." With ages ranging from about 18 to 30, each man is asked few questions and is then told to whip it out. Many subjects come dressed in a uniform, while others wear "skivvies" or sweats or shorts. Most all of them have USMC arm tattoos. Some soldiers are married; all others make it a point to talk about how much they like women. True or not, it would have been crazy to admit to homo tendencies on camera.
While watching straight hardcore videos, the guys get turned on as their bodies move through the stages of self stimulation. Yates gives them some direction, but the action is driven by the performers. They do their thing and let the camera come to them. Each session ends with the soldier popping a load. It is hot to see these unpretentious hardbodies getting themselves all hot, bothered and sticky on video.
Volume I offers a more traditional mix along with one dual session and pornstar Alex Garrett being discovered in the final scene. Volume II gets hotter and more weird, and includes a touchy-feely duo. The series has the look and feel of some of some of today's amateur videos. On the technical side, Yates should find a way not to go out of focus as he goes in after a cum shot. The Few… provides a unique display of male sexuality, using real people who really get themselves discharged before your eyes. High in-store visibility should keep this one marching off the shelves.
