The explicit debut porn feature from Broadway director and dancer Wakefield Poole—following the sexcapades of Casey Donovan on Fire Island—became a cultural sensation during its original NYC run. Poole: “I wanted [to make] a film that gay people could look at and say, ‘I don’t mind being gay—it’s beautiful to see those people do what they’re doing.’”
According to The Advocate, BOYS IN THE SAND “broke ground not just for the gay sexual world but for the sexual world at large[…]and the first big mainstream straight porn film, Deep Throat, could never have happened without Boys in the Sand opening the theater doors.”
