Michael Lucas goes to Israel
By Noah Michelson
Warm up those DVD players: Michael Lucas has finished his next porno, Men Of Israel, and it'll be released next month. The film marks a first in the gay pornographic world, as the premier Israeli film produced by major adult studio with an all-Israeli cast. Shot by Executive Producer/Co-Director Michael Lucas and Co-Director/Videographer Mr. Pam, Men of Israel features "exotic backdrops for many of the sex scenes eclectically range from the pristine desert cliffs of the Dead Sea, ancient ruins near Jerusalem dating back to over a millennium, to avant-garde skyscraper condos in the enriched metropolis of Tel Aviv," the film's press release states.
As both a director and a producer, Men of Israel is definitely the film I am most proud of,” the porn impresario says. “I firmly believe that it will bring awareness to all that Israel has to offer and will bring thousands of gay tourists to it numerous beaches, resorts, and other similar destinations. Based on all the press we have received from the Israeli media, this movie will be a milestone for the country. It’s amazing to see all the anticipation this project has created both in the United States and abroad.”
Men of Israel features five hardcore sex scenes with eight models, including newcomers Matan Shalev, Jonathan Agassi, Avi Dar, and Naor Tal, along with solo scenes, exclusive behind-the-scenes features, and documentary footage regarding the history of Israel. History lessons while you're getting yourself off? Brilliant! Someone get Lucas on the ballot for the school board.
