On August 6, two Osaka firemen were suspended from duty for six months for appearing in multiple gay adult video (AV) productions.

According to Shukan Jitsuwa (Sept. 12), the appearances are proof that demand is firm for straight guys to appear in a particular type of gay porn.

The pair, both employed at the Shijonawate City Fire Department, were approached by an AV scout on a beach in Suma Ward of Kobe on August 9 of last year. After being complimented on their trim bodies, the firemen, both 20 years of age, were asked if they wanted to star in a porn film with AV actresses.

At first, the pair hesitated, but later agreed after being told that their faces would be obscured. Each was subsequently paid a fee of 10,000 yen.

According to Web site J-Cast, the genre of the production is known as “Nonke Nampa Tenkoku” (Picking Up Straight Guys in Paradise).

“The fact that the two [firefighters] were in this type of film means that they are straight,” says a person with knowledge of the industry. “In this segment of the AV biz, two homosexual performers is not desirable. It is about seeing a handsome guy (with a woman).”

Photos on the box of the DVD shows a number of well-built, shirtless men, but the faces of the two firemen are in fact clearly depicted.

After realizing they had been defrauded, the pair went back to the scout, who then threatened to expose them if they didn’t continue performing.

The following November, one of the two made another appearance in an AV production for the same fee, while the other starred in two more films in January and March of this year for 40,000 yen.

The matter came to light on July 25, when an anonymous email reached the city’s municipal office. On the following day, the Shijonawate Fire Department received a copy of a DVD featuring one of the films.

The firemen were accused of participating in disreputable acts and engaging in dual employment, which is prohibited.

“For a homosexual man, the appearance or looks of the guy is what stimulates him,” says same industry insider. “As for the deed itself, that’s secondary. As a result, firefighters, self-defense force members, pro fighters, and athletes are targeted at pools or saunas.”
