The Girls Gone Wild franchise, created by Joseph R. Francis, is a series by the production company Mantra Films, Inc. Girls Gone Wild producers and crews patrol a party-heavy area frequented by young adults in search of attractive young women who agree to expose their bodies for the camera, usually in exchange for a tank top and sometimes short pants. This involves exposure of breasts and/or buttocks and genitals, sometimes further removal of clothing, and sometimes the camera crew following a group of girls back to a hotel or other location and taping them engaging in additional sexual activities/intercourse.
This format appeals to d-bags of all ages, from “bro” to “Josef Fritzl” because it offers a d-bag vicarious enjoyment of pleasures such as but not limited to tits, thongs and reality TV, as well as suggesting cocaine use and/or cornholing.
The most famous “Girl Gone Wild” is Ashley Youmans, a.k.a. Ashley Rae Maika DiPietry, a.k.a. Ashley Dupre, a.k.a. Kristen who was the prostitute who serviced former New York Governnor Eliot Spitzer. This fact constitutes what is know to d-bags as “masturbation material” for several reasons. First, it proves that those letters to Penthouse actually are true; second, it shows that if you are a big enough d-bag you will be able to hit that class of punani; and third, it reaffirms in the mind of a d-bag that girls really are sluts fundamentally, court orders and Uma Thurman be damned.
GGW is part of a genre of porn that employs the conventions of reality TV to highten the voyeuristic thrill inherent in porn. This is also known as “gonzo porn” and “reality porn“. After a bro has graduated to d-bag-hood he may find more pleasure watching something more SAS than GGW, and fortunately there are many options for the consumer who says, “I deserve it.” One of the most successful and famous reality porn franchises is “Bang Bros“. The original idea was to travel around Miami trying to convince strangers to get into a van where they would be offered money to answer some questions, but with suggestive pressure would be coerced into sex with one or several members of the men in the van. At the end of the scene the men in the van convince the woman to get out of the bus (to get something at a store or to pee on the side of the road) and then the bus roars off before the men have given the woman the money promised for her participation. The site’s popularity quickly led to a diversification of the brand, and now Bang Bros has a score of sites with revenues of several million dollars a year. Other official Bang Bros offerings include Facial Fest, Ass Parade, Spring Break, Mom’s Anal, and Blowjob Ninjas.
The success of GGW and reality porn in general shows the ubiquity of bro culture that developed in frat houses in the nineties when the intersection of technology and homosocial eroticism was brought to bear on the bodies of all-too-willing young women. The story of GGW for bros is simple: you deserve it, so go ahead and take it. For women, GGW is a lesson: if you want to be noticed you have to get ahead.
