Guys Gone Wild
The good people at Ventura have finally unleashed the testosterone-driven brother to Girls Gone Wild, and his name is Guys Gone Wild. It was only a matter of time before the kingpin of voyeuristic videos tapped into the virtually untouched landscape of male exhibitionism. The only puzzling part of the endeavor is the marketing scheme. The advertising for Guys Gone Wild is geared towards bachelorettes, when we all know that the larger consumer base will be gay men. Maybe it makes these straight boys feel more comfortable to think that it's a girl that will be watching their antics. In spite of this thinly veiled disguise, Guys Gone Wild will not disappoint either audience!
Hot Buns, Hard Bodies
First and foremost Guys Gone Wild offers a plethora of hot, fully-nude men. The guys are all college-aged, as it's filmed at spring break locations from Cancuun to South Padre Island. There are a few average-looking guys, but there is generally the degree of selectivity that one would expect from a studio that stakes its reputation on exhibitionist 'documentaries.' The guys will satisfy every palette imaginable with their chiseled chests, pretty-boy faces, bulging biceps, washboard abs, tight butts and big cocks. Some go it alone, and others show it in groups. It's the same sense of lighthearted revelry that made Girls Gone Wild so popular.
Of course, this collection of fine specimens didn't happen by accident. It was the work of the Guys Gone Wild hostess crew. The entire video is choreographed by a few women that we hear, but never see. It's a formalized venture complete with a registration table. The fact is that guys are a little less generous with flashing their goods than girls. Beads aren't enough; only a woman can get them to drop trow. The girls' voices can be heard in the background of nearly every scene patting their egos and telling the boys what to do next. They coax them into stripping, streaking or soaping-up. It's apparent from the looks on their faces that the blood had already left their brains when they agreed to this. It's relatively humorous. The stripteases often occur in hotel rooms, showers or secluded locations away from the crowds of spring break. This stands in contrast to many of the Girls Gone Wild videos that are filmed on crowded beaches and packed dance clubs.
There is definitely an erotic element in having a couple of chicks ordering around a few beefy studs. It turns out to be one of the sexiest parts of the entire video. The background music is repetitive and even grating, but the digital photography won't disappoint. Guys Gone Wild is also not without it's homoerotic elements. There is tons of brotherly butt-slapping. Two muscular jocks are even coaxed into oiling each other up. Truthfully, this doesn't add a whole lot of substance to the video, but it contributes to the anything goes atmosphere. Above all else, Guys Gone Wild is fun.
I was disappointed but not surprised by the amount of filler footage. Many of the scenes extend several minutes, often outliving the erotic value of the moment. Much of the footage amounts to little more than nude men trying their best to impress the camera-women, which can also be a slight turn-off. You'll have to ignore the cheesy pick-up lines, sleazy innuendos and lame dance moves. You can see that in any night club.
The video features a surprising amount of full frontal nudity. I expected the emphasis to be on butts and chests, but the film was quite well-rounded. There are a few clips without nudity, but the guys are attractive enough to make it work. Anyone that admires the male form will not be dissapointed. Unfortunately, there are no special features on the DVD. There aren't even any previews of the upcoming sequels:( Overall, Guys Gone Wild is an excellent purchase at under $15. It exceeded my expectations that were lowered by a series of disappointments with Girls Gone Wild videos. If there weren't so much filler in a 60 minute video then I would have easily given it 5 stars.
