Right now the world is focused on Brazil and balls...as in the ones that men play with during soccer competitions. But back in 1988, many men were actually decades ahead of their time, for they were already big fans of watching macho Brazilian balls engaged in manly actions of sport... as in the 1988 wildly successful video Tropical Heatwave. Kristen Bjorn kicked off his career in male erotic films with this movie which was a scintillating jerk-off extravaganza. A good way to describe this video's content might be to imagine Playgirl-type beefy models---only these dudes are fully aroused and sharing themselves with the audience (this is masturbation soft-core stuff)---to the point of climax. Bjorn knew that many gay guys were attracted to handsome men without giving a whole lot of thought about the model's sexuality in real life. He effectively marketed the fact that many of this solo-performers were straight men doing it just for the cash and were not turned on by other dudes. No problem for the models or the audience! Before there was the 'Prague straight model' craze, there was Bjorn and
his cash-strapped men from Brazil, Eastern Europe, and Australia. The lush settings used to showcase his discoveries included dreamlike villas, sand dunes, and glistening waterfalls against dense jungle foliage. The guys showed off their hard cocks by letting them throb and bob free of hands. Their spermacous eruptions were pulsating, one after another: Scene 1 Roberto Ameida; Scene 2 Sylvio Braga; Scene 3 Luciano Perreira; Scene 4 Fabricio Silveira; Scene 5 Armando Santos; and Scene 6; Danilo Cardoso.
While the total film package of locations and poses may have appeared a little-too perfect for some tastes, the rough unbridled broncho spirit of the men shined through. Not only did gay men rent the tape, many of them opted for the significant investment (oftentimes over $80) to buy a VHS copy: It was that good. In addition to Champs, Kristen followed-up with Carnival in Rio which was hard-core and equally a big hit.
What made these first videos so popular remains easy to see, even when viewing them today. It helps to keep it in the context that they were produced these films during a time when cheap-quality San Fernando videos had flooded both straight and gay erotica markets, and when many of the male models often looked like they were 'doing' the films between 'doing' street johns and 'scoring' their next fix. Contrast this against Bjorn's non-California-looking, naturally athletic men sporting their bronze bodies for moolah and not giving a damn who looked or not. One of the gentleman appearing in Tropical Heatwave was Luciano Perreira (also known as Brad Foreman) who would go on to star in Carnival in Rio. Here are some photos of Luciano which were both teasers (hidden crotch) and explicit, probably for marketing campaigns aimed at different audiences. According to his publicity bio, his nationality is from Brazil, Height: 5'10, Weight: 160 lbs, Penis: 7" and married after modeling. He even made the August 1988 cover of Honcho!
