Gay sex and... karate? Strange bedfellows, indeed!
The phenomenal Jim Steele unleashes his sword on the likes of Chad Douglas and Grant West in this incredible vintage porn video directed by Phillip St John. Always popular - and for good reason - Below the Belt stands out as a true classic.
There isn't any one thing in particular that makes this film so wonderful; the entire movie simply stands out from start to finish. The performances are spirited (at times a little rough!), the camera work is deliciously naughty, and even the potentially lame karate sequences are seamlessly blended into the sex.
Below The Belt reveals all the best of the porn of yesteryear, like bareback sex and naturally masculine men, with none of the excessive storytelling. It's hard to believe this was made in the eighties!
Kicking off with a fun and catchy original theme song by Garth Evans (composer of many songs for Nova soundtracks and the theme song for St. John's Getting It), we see the guys at practice.
After an intense karate session, all the fellas in the dojo hit the locker room. Two of the guys take a shower together, seeming to ignore each other as they soap up. However, they both are half-hard; big ol' wieners jut out from their tight physiques. The moment they step out of the shower one of the guys, Jordan Moore, grabs at Michael Ram's dick. He resists at first, "people might be watching." Within seconds, he's got his hands firmly around Moore's head, pushing his face further into his crotch.
Meanwhile, blond beauty Jim Steele (he's got devastating blue eyes) jerks off while watching from around the corner. Moore sucks Ram for a few minutes and then drops on all fours for a good fucking. His gigantic ball sac flops about with each thrust of Ram's rod.
Elsewhere in the locker room (presumably after this little show), lanky Grant West approaches Jim Steele. He tells him of haunting dreams he's been having about the mustachioed super top Chad Douglas.
In the dream, a masked ninja flail numchucks as green smoke fills a darkened room. West is trussed up in karate belts. He is attacked by the ninja and saves Douglas. He then turns into a young Asian man (billed as Sum Yung Mahn, the video's only misstep), who is fucked by Douglas, made to suck other guys' schlongs, and then is covered in jizz.
The story gets Steele all horny; he practically attacks West while trying to get at his cock. West jams his wide load into Steele's tight hole and slaps him as he bangs away. Steele whimpers like it's his first time... totally hot.
This intense group of scenes is followed by an astonishing outdoor threesome (between quite a trio: hung hottie Scott O'Hara, omnipresent '80s porn star David Ashfield, and cutie Michael Ram) complete with nasty talk and a double penetration that will make even the most seasoned bottom squeal in sympathy.
The video comes to a climax when West is given a private lesson with Douglas. Douglas ravages West's hole right in the middle of the karate studio! The rest of the class comes in and joins the fun, basically breaking up into two groups: those who want to worship Douglas' ginormous meat and the ones who like it a little less rough. These dudes mess around with Jim Steele. The orgy ends appropriately with enough semen to impregnate a convent!
Below The Belt proves that one cannot judge a porno by its case. This movie features an astonishing "Grand Hotel" cast of huge gay porn sex stars of the '80s (a few making appearances in non-sexual cameos, but most in incredible sex scenes).
