Who are the ikki twins dating 2016
"He is my lifeblood, and he is my only love."The twins' astonishing lack of shame -- and their willingness to do anything with each other on camera -- has helped turn them into a gay porn phenomenon.
Since they first began appearing on Czech porn studio Bel Ami's website (NSFW, like all links in this story) in 2009, the company's traffic has doubled to 1.5 million users per month, and Milo and Elijah have become the subject of breathless coverage on adult blogging sites like Fleshbot and The Sword.
While the concept of twin performers is not new to the gay porn world, the Peters twins are notable both because of the extent of their popularity and the things they are willing to do with each other on camera.
They French kiss; they perform oral sex on each other; they have anal sex; and most shockingly of all, they do it in a tender and romantic way."My brother is my boyfriend, and I am his boyfriend," says one of the twins during a phone call from Prague (Elijah and Milo sound so much alike on the phone it is impossible to tell which one is speaking).
They've even been flown from Prague to the United States for a whirlwind tour of Florida gay nightspots. The company behind the twins, Bel Ami, is probably the biggest and best-known company in the booming Czech gay porn industry -- which, thanks to the growth of Internet porn and the low cost of Czech performers, has become the world's second largest center for gay porn production after California.
But their surprising popularity raises some disturbing questions: Who are these twins? Bel Ami mainly features "twinks" (skinny white men in their late teens or early 20s with a vanilla aesthetic and an unfortunate penchant for feathered hair) and exports its movies around the world.
For straight men, sex with twins has become a cliché that's popped up everywhere from Coors Light commercials to, more recently, MTV's "A Double Shot at Love With the Ikki Twins" dating show, in which male and female suitors competed to date two spray-tanned bisexual twins with rhyming names.
But the appeal of gay twincest is a little more complicated than the standard straight male twin fantasy (in which one man is usually the passive recipient of the twins' attention)."On some level, you could argue that twincest is this idealized version of gay sex," says Shamama.
According to Jonathan Turner, a distinguished professor of sociology at the University of California at Riverside and the author of "Incest: The Origins of the Taboo," "it's almost like self-masturbation." For Shamama, who says he used to fantasize about having sex with himself when he was younger, these fantasies were a way to rationalize his gay attraction.
He used to do it "as a way to sublimate the fact that I wanted to have gay sex."The biggest part of twincest's appeal, however, probably has to do with the forbidden-ness of watching two brothers have sex.
"If it's porn, it's usually violating some cultural norm," says Turner.
Go to any American gay porn store and you'll find Bel Ami titles like "An American in Prague" and "Some like it BIG."The twins first appeared on Bel Ami's site in the summer of last year, as performers in a couple of "group scenes." At first, Elijah and Milo didn't really touch each other in their scenes, but over the course of several months, in a rollout worthy of "Cloverfield," the studio either let them (or pushed them to) go further and further with each other on-screen.
At first this involved them jerking each other off during group sex, then, in a scene with a gangly performer named "Trevor Yates," performing oral sex on one another, and finally, in a much-hyped video, having full-on sex.
