US Paratroopers Appear On Gay Porn Website

by Ediorial Staff in General , 08 april 2006


Last year “Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star” was published, being the memoirs of Rich Merritt. During his active service as a Marine, Merritt was also involved in making gay porn. When he was promoted to captain in June 1995 he’d already made four of his eight porn videos, using the alias Danny Orlis.

Merritt’s porn career must have been a heavy blow for military officials, since Bill Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy obviously didn’t result in gay soldiers staying hidden deep in the closet, and it didn’t prevent some from indulging in sexual splurges in front of the camera either.


From several books by Steven Zeeland, Alex Buchman and others, we already knew homosexuality and a military career aren’t incompatible. This was recently accentuated when members of the celebrated 82nd Airborne Division at Ford Bragg were said to appear on a gay porn website.

Army officials are investigating these allegations. Division spokeswoman Maj. Amy Hannah declined to say how many paratroopers are involved, but an anonymous source told journalists up to seven soldiers are involved. No charges have been filed yet. “Once the investigation is complete, the chain of command will take appropriate action,” Hannah said. The group of paratroopers have been removed from their regular barracks however.


Martha Rudd, a spokeswomen at the Pentagon, said the current policy states that “homosexual orientation alone is not a bar to service, but homosexual conduct is incompatible with military service. We define homosexual conduct as homosexual acts or verbal or nonverbal communication that a member is homosexual.”

The military-themed website doesn’t appear to make any direct reference to the 82nd Airborne at Ford Bragg, which is one of the most celebrated units in the US military. Its 15,000 troops are trained to deploy anywhere in the world within eighteen hours and soldiers from the division served extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan.
