Producer Hopes To Boost Israeli Tourism With Porn Film

This may be old news, but I couldn’t resist posting about it.  In case you missed it, Lucas Entertainment released a new film last summer called Men of Israel that Lucas claims is the first ever porn flick set in Israel, filmed in Israel, starring only Israeli men.  Lucas Entertainment is of course owned by porn-star-turned-entrepreneur Michael Lucas, who says he made the landmark film to “promote Israeli culture and tourism.”

Lucas himself is Jewish and has long been an outspoken supporter of the Israeli government and its people.  It may seem far-fetched that a porn film could spur interest in a country as a tourist destination, but the idea is not all that implausible.  Bel Ami, the Bratislava-based porn film company, has played a major role in making Eastern Europe a gay tourist destination.

I’m not sure Jerusalem will become a hotbed for gay tourism any time soon, but if the men there look anything like the ones in this promo poster, I might need to book a trip!
