An adult film company is capitalizing on the heat of the U.S. anti-establishment protests by using a tent in the middle of the "Occupy Oakland" encampment as the setting for a new gay porn flick.

Billed by The New York Observer as a "homoerotic caper through the tents of Oakland's Occupation," Dirty Boy Video's "Occupy My Throat" is likely to have been inspired by Brandon Watts, an original member of the Wall Street occupation who lost his virginity in Zuccotti Park before being arrested after a gruesome standoff with the police. Dirty Boy Video president Andy Fair reportedly contacted the 20-year-old Watts, whose experience was apparently noted in a New York Times magazine feature, and offered the protester cash for the chance to tape his next experience.

"I offer you the opportunity to perform on our website, an opportunity to express yourself and your politics freely and without censor. Working together we can create a sexy, fun platform that inspires you, be that with other actors, actresses or both. Whether you choose to work with us or not, I salute your dedication and your courage," Fair wrote in his letter to Watts, according to CBS San Francisco.

Watts does not appear in "Occupy My Throat," which was reportedly filmed in the middle of the Occupy Oakland encampment at Frank Ogawa Plaza. The film's tagline reportedly reads as follows: "Police can ban the erection of tents at Occupy Wall Street, but they can't keep us from pitching a tent in our pants!"

Though the overall, ahem, merits of "Occupy My Throat" remain to be seen, some bloggers are greeting the release enthusiastically. "Many might find this perverted and/or an unnecessary distraction from the important issues of the day," writes LeFag. "We feel like this video could be a nice historical document in years to come, should the movement prove more than a flash in the pan."

There is no part of me that's surprised, so I'm too busy laughing at the absurdity to be outraged.

There's a part of me that's surprised they picked Oakland as opposed to trying to do Occupy San Francisco for a gay porn flick.

Hmm, that's a good point.

Okay, I am a bit surprised about that. Maybe they were trying to be ~original?

It's probably because Occupy Oakland has been in the news so much. If you are going to try to sell something based on the occupy protests, it probably helps to pick one that is getting more news coverage.
