Porn Star Michael Lucas explores the world of the gay community in Israel in new documentary
Michael Lucas has taken his non-porn interests to a whole new level. The Russian auteur has announced that his latest project is a serious documentary that explores the world of the gay community in Israel. The film, Undressing Israel: Gay Men in the Promised Land, features interviews with a variety of local men, including a pair of dads raising their two kids, a gay member of Israel's parliament, a trainer who served openly in the army and a young Arab-Israeli journalist.

no matter how hot they are I could never be with an Israeli man. I couldn't get over what they are doing to the Palestinians.
Why won't he bottom? Is he ashamed to be homosexual?

That makes no sense, particularly since there are a great many leftist Israelis who strongly disagree with government policy and action in that regard (and many others).
Would you expect men from other countries to snub you because of unjust things America continues to do in all parts of the world? Or would you expect them to understand that you are not directly responsible for that, and do not support it?
JEWS = HUGE Penises!!!!
r11 good point, so many times it is easy to dismiss someone based on group affiliation and not looking at the individual. DL and all the hook-up sites offers plenty of examples.
Damnit why won't he bottom? I will not be ignored on this. Tell me now bitches or I'll boil the rabbit.
You don't think he bottoms in his personal life?
BUMP for HOT Israeli men.
[quote]JEWS = HUGE Penises!!!!
Yeah, and so do the Chinese.
This guy should be banned from discussion. What a revolting pos he is. 'Support Republicans because they're pro-Israel, and Israel doesn't hate homosexuals.' So Americans should vote for people who hate homosexuals just so your beloved country keeps getting its welfare check. The guy's a retard. His rankings about non-Jews in the Middle East and how we should basically kill them is disturbing. Who was that brainless bimbo who did porn and ran for governor of California? She's the female version of him.
Don't go there if you're into uncut cocks. Although Lucas himself is an uncut Jew.
[quote]Perlmutter and his friends spent the entire 10-day trip in Tel Aviv, never leaving the city limits. They went to the gay beach, partied at gay bars and nightclubs, even stayed at a gay hotel,
Gee, how appealing.
[quote]“It was incredible,” says Perlmutter. “It was like Vegas on steroids.”
(The guys's 44).
[quote]And Perlmutter, the TV executive, says his experience in Tel Aviv made other cities pale in comparison. "It was like being in Montreal, Manhattan, and London all at once, but with more energy and style.
I've never heard such nonsense. That article is such a blatant commercial.
R22, I am not a Jew and I have not seen the documentary, but I will say the existing city of Tel Aviv was essentially developed after World War 2 with the money from those Jews who left Europe (in particular Germany) before the Holocaust.
Consequently they built it in "European-style" but with smart post-war planning. Grand boulevards, art museums, fabulous hotels and parks are everywhere. Wealthy Jews like Helena Rubinstein built parks, Edward G. Robinson and others left the art museum impressionist paintings.
The beach is filled with very sexy men and women. The nightlife is absolutely electric.
You really need to go to see what I mean.
[quote]I have not seen the documentary,
Well, I've seen a trailer and it's clearly financed by the tourist board.
& the quote, I quoted sounds ridiculous.

More annoying superlatives.
Good for them targeting the gays. Why not? It's just the way it's being done grates with me.

Really? No desire to see any more of the country. Just gaying it out in Tel Aviv for the whole ten days?
It all sounds way too ghetto gay to me. Maybe some people have read this and think it sounds terrific. I'm appalled.
Lucas aside, it might be noteworthy to point out that there a LOT of gay men who don't take it up the ass.
So, there ya go.
Why is r24 consistently attacking the documentary? I have no idea if it was "financed by the tourist board" but if it was SO WHAT?
One always hates to accuse someone of virulent anti-Semitism against the Democratic natiin of Israel, but what is otherwise going on here?
Lucas is such a creep. I'll never understand his popularity.
Tel Aviv is bursting with Circuit party boys drugged out of their mind, and related creeps. If that is your thing good for you. As for this: "It was like being in Montreal, Manhattan, and London all at once, but with more energy and style."; I don't think you can get more delusional than that.
[quote]but what is otherwise going on here?
Nothing is 'otherwise' going on here. I've made my point very clearly.
This 'Gay Tel Aviv' stuff in the form of a 'documentary' is plain old infomercial, in disguise.
[quote]One always hates to accuse someone of virulent anti-Semitism against the Democratic natiin of Israel,
Doesn't sound like you hate it at all, you've done it at the drop of a hat and in this case it's completely inappropriate.
Just because I don't like some crappy infomerical for Gay Tel Aviv, presented by some 'porn star' does not make me a 'Jew hater'.
Save your anti-Semitism name calling in check, please and use it when it's called for.
Here's the trailer. I think it looks great, but of course I'm a Jew.
My older brother lives in Haifa and I've visited and have spent quite a lot of time in Tel Aviv. It's a fantastic city and VERY accepting of gays and lesbians, perhaps more so than any other city I've ever been in. There is nowhere in the US that comes even remotely close.
Ten days in Tel Aviv? Nice place, but four is all you need. As for the nightlife scene, I actually preferred Beirut, although I wouldn't spend ten days there either.
BUMP for Israeli hotness.
[quote]It's a fantastic city and VERY accepting of gays and lesbians, perhaps more so than any other city I've ever been in. There is nowhere in the US that comes even remotely close.
Except for...oh, any of the states with marriage equality. The US is far ahead of Israel in legal protections for gays.
The trailer and topic are intriguing, but I wish he would completely rescore the music - sounds pretty terrible.
Israel is known for their pink propaganda. They like to portray themselves as liberal, open and gay friendly while they treat the Palastine population like sh*t. It's disgusting. I'm currently boycotting Israeli goods, and I'm never traveling to that disgusting country.
It freaks me out to hear Hebrew spoken in a gay context. I'm only used to Hebrew being spoken in a religious context (synagogue).
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
