SAN DIEGO — Producer, director and military-themed porn specialist Dink Flamingo has acquired MyStraightBuddy.com and will bring it under his ActiveDuty.com umbrella.

The acquisition has a certain synchronicity as producer-director Joe Carder founded MyStraightBuddy.com because he was a fan of Flamingo’s oeuvre.

Carder’s site “focuses more on the everyday aspects of being a young, wild military guy rather than just the sex,” he said. “My viewers and fans have routinely been given access to a very different side of our men in and out of uniform.”

Flamingo said the unusual angle immediately drew him to Carder’s website.

“What Joe has done is something so different from what I’ve done with Active Duty, yet the two complement each other,” Flamingo said. “Joe focuses on the men and their personalities even if it means leaving out the sex, and there’s something just as fucking sexy about that approach.”

Carder said he drew upon his own military experience and memories of “casual nudity, drunk horseplay and intense camaraderie.”

The videos present real bonds of friendship and “really let you experience what it’s like to have straight, military buddies who are such tight friends they really do hang out naked and chill together. It’s a unique approach but one that has really paid off. You wouldn’t believe how well it converts.”

The two met on a webmaster forum and Flamingo offered to purchase My Straight Buddy when Carder revealed that he was looking to focus his attention on launching a new, hetero adult site called SemperFuck.com.

Despite shifting to the new video-on-demand venture, Carder will continue providing periodic updates to My Straight Buddy because the collateral he generates for Semper Fuck will include what he normally cuts out of the previous site.

“Straight Marines with girls was a very popular feature on My Straight Buddy,” he said. “The guys I work with are totally straight after all and many of them won’t do anything with a guy, no matter the price.”

He would typically edit out the women as much as possible, so male-female footage shot for Semper Fuck could potentially end up on the other site.

MyStraightBuddy.com will be offered to ActiveDuty.com members but also will continue as a stand-alone VOD website.
