Boys in the Sand

Special Guest: Wakefield Poole

Wakefield Poole’s Boys in the Sand was one of the first adult films to find mainstream success. By itself, this is remarkable, that the “gay porn” film came out a mere 18 months after Stonewall and a year before Deep Throat makes it even more so.

We’re joined by Jim Tushinski, the director of I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole to talk Boys in the Sand, Bijou, Bible, and much more.
