TEN NAVAL OFFICERS CHARGED IN SEX FOR SECRETS SCANDAL, AND IT IS CLEAR THE MILITARY HAS A SEX PROBLEM
Some people believe that young, jacked, and testosterone-fueled military servicemen, sequestered from any real physical relationship with women for extended periods at a time, are going to have normal healthy attitudes towards sex and women. Get fucking real. With military scandal after scandal involving sex, people can’t really keep deluding themselves much longer. And while women are the victims, so too are the men. You can only ask so much of a guy, realistically. We’re justifying any behavior, we’re just saying, there’s a larger problem that gets ignored when people are just looking at the symptoms. Another symptom is rocking the Navy this week, as ten senior naval officers were charged in a sex for secrets scandal. The officers reportedly referred to themselves as “the Cool Kids,” “the Band of Brothers,” “the Brotherhood,” “the Wolfpack,” “the familia,” and “the Lion King’s Harem.” And according to the allegations of the U.S. Attorney Southern District of California the officers worked together to help Singapore-based defense contractor Leonard Glenn Francis, also known as “Fat Leonard,” and his company, Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA), access military secrets in exchange for luxury travel, extravagant dinners, and sex parties with prostitutes.
The company reportedly overbilled the Navy $34 million, aided by the group who were working in concert with Fat Leonard and his company to win defense contracts to provide port services to U.S. Navy ships, to redirect ships to ports controlled by Fat Leonard in southeast Asia (in order to overbill the Navy for supplies and services), to sabotage competing defense contractors, to recruit new leaders coming into the Seventh Fleet, and to keep the conspiracy secret through the use of code names and foreign email services. The indictment named Navy Rear Admiral Bruce Loveless , chief of staff to the Commander of the Navy’s Seventh Fleet David Newland, Captains David Newland, James Dolan, Donald Hornbeck and David Lausman; Marine Corps Colonel Enrico DeGuzman; Commander Mario Herrera; Lt. Commander Stephen Shedd and Chief Warrant Officer Robert Gorsuch.

Mario Ambrose Antoine, 33, will likely be seen producing his personal porn videos from prison, with titles like “Mario Gangbanged in the Shower” and “Mario Blowbang for Breakfast.” But you likely won’t shed any tears over Mario. He was recently charged in federal court with a 21-count indictment, including 12 counts of wire fraud, two counts of cyberstalking, two counts of online enticement, two counts of making false statements to federal law enforcement agents, one count of obstructing justice, one count of extortion and one count of falsely registering a domain name. He pretended to be a porn producer and forced women to have sex with him as part of an “audition.” While this is the theme of a popular porn series, Mario didn’t figure out it was all scripted and the models were acting. Instead, Mario took the theme of the porn videos to heart. He is charged with having created several online pseudonyms and fake Facebook profiles, posing as a talent agent and videographer, starting in August 2011. For example, on his Facebook pages, Antoine allegedly claimed that he owned porn companies such as “Playboy Worldwide,” “Playboy Asia” and “Dash Agency.” He promised auditions to women in the Kansas City area for modeling positions and to rehearse for parts in his porn movies, according to court papers filed in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas, in Kansas City. But Mario required the women to have sex with him first to see if they could pass muster. Then he allegedly recorded sex with the victims, offering them tens of thousands of dollars. But he had no intention of ever paying them, according to federal prosecutors. In several instances, he allegedly later threatened his victims with the tapes, either threatening to send them to their employers or seeking money or more sex from them. We don’t think we’ll be seeing Mario anytime soon, he is still in federal custody, pending a detention hearing Thursday.

We sympathize with Rentboy.com, a gay escort site that was raided by federal authorities, its officers arrested and website and assets seized. And we fully support efforts to raise funds for the executives arrested and charged with promoting prostitution, for two reasons. One, we support the right of two fully informed consenting adults to do whatever the hell they want without government intervention. And two, we support business owners operating within the reasonable bounds of the law, and oppose unfair and arbitrary enforcement for political purposes. That said, while everyone is focusing on Rentbuy.com, and whether its raid was unfairly targeted at the gay community, we can only believe that this is just the beginning. And the adult community should be looking at who may be next. We’re not mentioning any names, but we can readily identify at least 3-4 popular heterosexual websites that operate with the exact same platform as Rentboy.com. Whether this was just an unfair targeting of the gay community or the first of a number of raids on escort websites remains to be seen. When the feds seek to make someone an example, the rest may want to take heed. We see a much more aggressive campaign against escort websites and adult websites in general coming. And we, for one, don’t want the government messing with our hookers and porn.
