"Among gay porn connoisseurs, Sailor in the Wild ranks as one of director William Higgins's greatest productions, and in its DVD release, it gets a terrific transfer that takes us back to the early '80s tease of straight-boy seduction." – Lance Powers, Gay Chicago Magazine (Rating: 3.0/4.0)
Shot on film and long considered one of the best and hottest William Higgins' productions ever, Laguna Pacific's "Sailor In The Wild" is a gorgeous sextravaganza chock full of stunning scenery and beautiful men. Smoldering sailor Brian Thompson plays a sailor on leave, who discovers his true sexuality in the woods of Big Bear over the weekend. Brian is camping in the mountains, and park ranger Bill Henson wanders by, explaining the dangers of campfires. The next day, Brian spots Henson jerking his schlong in the wilderness. It has an effect on him, as he ambles on down to a waterfall. He strips to a jockstrap, and beats his meat as well.
On his way again, Brian runs into guess who again? Yep, you guessed correctly. Brian and Bill the park ranger end up sharing a cold beer or two, and taking some pics. Brian, now aware of the awesomeness of gay sex, is determined to get a piece of hunky Bill. Can you blame him? A classic scene all the way!
Brian resumes his trip again, stopping at a payphone to call his friend Buster in LA. It seems Buster is involved in a serious game of strip poker with two sexy young lads. Another ball-buster of a scene follows.
Brian meets three young hotties on the beach, and camps with them. After dark, randy Brian ends up in the same sleeping bag with luscious Aaron Gage. And before you know it, Brian is fucking Aaron's yummy ass on the beach. One of the other boys, Tony Roberts, wakes, and silently watches the fuck. The next morning, Tony confides what he saw to the other dude, and confronts the two at what he saw. Basically Aaron tells them just to try it, and before you know it, all four are bent over and sucking, rimming, and fucking with innocent abandon. It's a magnificent scene, set against the pounding surf.
The next two scenes are dramatizations of corresponding letters between Brian and friend Leo Ford. In one, it describes Leo's encounter with the hung poolboy, played by Rick Donovan. Donovan pounds Leo mercilessly with his huge cock, and Leo loves every minute of it.
"Sailor In The Wild" has it all- lots of beautiful men, gigantic cocks, jaw-dropping sex scenes, and some gorgeous northern California scenery. There is just something magical about late 70s and early 80s porn, and this is a prime example. It just does not get any hotter than this. "Sailor In The Wild" is one of the biggest selling gay adult films of all time, and it's a tried and true classic. Smokin' hot!
