Boys in the Sand

Directed by Wakefield Poole
United States, 1971
LGBT+, Erotica


Seminal in more ways than one, Boys in the Sand was the first triple-X film of any orientation to bill its director and actors; it remains the only adult flick ever reviewed in The New York Times. It even began the phenomenon of porn titles spoofing mainstream fare.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Boys in the Sand

    1970s Erotic Gay Cinema. This film is credited with many historic firsts, primarily being the film that started the 1970's wave of XXX Gay Cinema. Appealing to aesthetic tastes of the Gay community, these films had much more to offer than the Gay porn found on the internet today (which has nothing to do with cinema, and doesn't pretend to). 70s Gay Cinema was the artistic manifestation of a pivotal cultural movement.
