INTRODUCING DANDY DICKS – Walter Crasshole’s Online Gay Magazine Is One of A Kind

by JC Gonzo

Walter CrassholeAbout five years ago, eager provocateur Walter Crasshole ex-patriated from San Francisco to Berlin, establishing himself at ExBerliner magazine and as a juror to the PornFilmFestival Berlin. Already a seasoned art porn star and gay culture writer, Crasshole naturally fit right in to Berlin’s radical queercore scene. “…The energy itself took me here – an energy of people willing to support each other and take new risks. That’s as much a part of Berlin as it is gay/queer life in general.”

This Summer he launched Dandy Dicks, a gay haven of gorgeous guys-next-door getting it on docu-porn style, many for the first time on camera. Most pornographic hubs only offer the basics of visual erotic stimulation, but Dandy Dicks prides itself as a lifestyle site complete with cultural stimuli like think pieces and film reviews. “…The editorial content … caters to people with good taste but also who want to have a good time. You can click on quality editorial, porn or just fun stuff to look at, making the overall experience of the site more satisfying.”

Boys of Dandy Dicks

This itself is a rare feat and makes Dandy Dicks the first of its kind online. I, myself, am honored to be a part of the freshly launched porn site with an interview series on Sex/Life/Art where I explore the intersection of sex, culture, and creativity. While Dandy Dicks is Berlin-based, it is internationally minded. Pieces on the little-known origins of gay emancipation, the assholes that plague dating apps, and the life of a foot fetishist make up the diverse selection of articles interspersed with hot sex videos like these. “Dandy Dicks boys are special because they are at once attainable and still unique. We purposely didn’t seek out Bel Ami, smoothed-out models, and the beefcakes of Naked Sword aren’t our thing either. They are guys that you see on the street every day. The really unique ones, the special ones, but still guys you may even know.”

Dandy Dicks Butts

Yes, you do have to pay to watch full videos. In the world of indie porn, feminist porn, art porn, and so on, paying up comes with the territory, as you would for any organic, fair trade, locally sourced item. It’s what allows progressive, ethical, and original sex media to exist, reshaping the banal landscape of conventional, industry porn that typically promotes political stereotypes that can be misogynistic, homophobic, and racist in nature. Porn stars are sex workers, and sex workers deserve rights, which include being properly paid for their services. Most of the boys you’re watching on Dandy Dicks are camera virgins, and the few that aren’t are certainly being showcased in a fashion unlike any other way you’ve seen them before. Pristine quality and luscious slow-motion present a hedonistic visual feast with real couples and authentic guys. “The videos are special because we have real people in them, not staple porn actors. But even though they may not be regulars on screen, we didn’t want the videos to come across as ‘amateur’—more often than not that translates to iPhone porn. We shoot them professionally and carefully… The visual quality of the videos matched with the boys is unsurpassed.”
