Paper: Group sex for porn movie shot on LA field

Reply Thu 31 May, 2012 06:04 pm
LOS ANGELES — As stadiums went quiet around the country the weekend after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, there was plenty of action on the field at historic Memorial Coliseum and little of it had to do with football.

On Sept. 16, 2001, 40 minutes of group sex for a hardcore porn movie was filmed during a four-hour shoot under the lights at the Coliseum, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

The University of Southern California Trojans wouldn't have been on the field anyway that Sunday at the Coliseum, which is run by the city, county and state. But still no officials contacted by the Times knew who gave permission for the shoot.

A spokeswoman for the Coliseum said Wednesday a statement was being prepared.

Stadiums sat empty across the nation as college and professional teams cancelled games in a show of mourning in the aftermath of 9/11. But the period of bereavement apparently was cut short at the Coliseum.

The Coliseum seats, tunnel and entry can be seen in the movie, although the stadium is not identified by name in the 90-minute film.

"I was just in awe that we were at the Coliseum," said one of the film's stars, known as Mr. Marcus.

"I've made movies for about 20 years, and I've done a lot of things, but that one really stands out. ... I mean, who gets to have sex on the Coliseum floor?"

He said the football-themed shoot included some non-explicit scenes in a Coliseum locker room but that footage did not make it into the movie.

No one contacted by the Times acknowledged giving permission for the shoot and the paper was unable to reach the production company, Anabolic Video.

The company's logo is seen on jerseys worn by actors in the film and on banners that are draped like bunting in the stands.

The Coliseum, built as a memorial to World War I veterans, is owned by the state. The national historic landmark has hosted two Summer Olympics. Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass there. And the stadium is where John F. Kennedy accepted the Democratic presidential nomination.

A spokesman for the California attorney general's office told the Times on Tuesday he didn't know if it was illegal to film pornography on state property. Some agencies, including the California Department of Parks and Recreation, ban porn shoots.

I sure hope there were some other trojans on the field that Sunday. Rolling Eyes

@Lustig Andrei,
I'm not really bothered by this.

Our state rents out public spaces for film/TV production all the time -- to great applause.

Porn is a legal product. I don't get why people are so upset about this.

Well, the way it goes, is the municipalities get requests for various types of "shoots" all the time. It's revenue. Some pencil pusher makes sure all of the required boxes are filled in on the forms, gives approval and collects a check.
There is no box that asks "Are you making a porno", otherwise, you can bet some city official would have been identified as a participant.

I think the timing may have something to do with it, Boomer; I mean the proximity to 9/11 when everything in greater LA was shut down tight, including public stadia. I hadda spend almost an extra week at Newport Beach because there were no flights out of LAX. When I finally managed to find a company that actually had a rental car available, the first thing I was asked whether I planned to drive it cross-country because I couldn't fly back to Boston (no, no, I just wanted to be able to get around until I could get a flight out to Washington State). And here's a porn crew taking advantage of vacant stadia to shoot group sex scenes. It's okay by me but I can see why people are upset.

@Lustig Andrei,
I know. I get that. But I imagine the permits had been applied for months, if not years, in advance.

Sure, the right thing to do might have been to call off production but I'll wager that a lot of work requiring permits and payments went on that day too and it isn't causing a stink.
