MONTREAL—Dink Flamingo’s Active Duty, the multi-award winning military fetish site and its affiliate program Flamingo Bucks have been acquired by Gamma Entertainment’s Buddy Profits.
Founded in August 1998, Active Duty features real amateur, all-American military guys in hardcore and solo videos. Active Duty will continue to release two new weekly updates: a hardcore video featuring real military guys and a solo featuring a new recruit.
With the assets acquisition of Active Duty, Gamma Entertainment will own and operate three prominent gay brands under the Next Door Entertainment group umbrella, including Next Door Studios and Pride Studios. The three combined brands account for 24 websites, 12 new weekly updates and a library of more than 7,000 exclusive videos.
“I am very pleased that Dink has agreed that Buddy Profits is best able to ensure the continuity of his ‘labor of love’ and the ongoing growth of the Active Duty brand," said Stephan Sirard, president of Next Door Entertainment. "I have a great deal of respect for Dink, what he has accomplished in this industry, and the brand that he has created. Our intention is to stay true to his vision while extending our reach into the military fetish niche.”
After 16 years at the helm, Active Duty’s founder, GAYVN and Grabby Awards Hall of Fame inductee Dink Flamingo, is happy to hand the reins over to Buddy Profits. Dink will continue his lifetime pursuit of perfect military men by remaining the lead director for Active Duty, under the creative management of the Buddy Profits team.
“I’m very happy Active Duty has found a new home at Next Door Entertainment and the Buddy Profits program," said Dink. "It’s an honor to know that it will be managed alongside such premium brands as Next Door Studios, Falcon Studios, Raging Stallion, Hot House and so many others. In an ever-changing, high-stakes game like the adult entertainment industry, where it becomes survival of the fittest, it’s always a good idea to align yourself with the sharpest players at the table.
“I’ve always known that my true strength was recruiting the right talent to create a very popular product," he added. "I was never a marketing person or a business genius. I did the best I could with what I had. This deal will allow me to continue doing what I love most and leave the rest to the talented Buddy Profits’ team. Our combined talents will make Active Duty better than it’s ever been. I’m very excited about the future.”
Hector Camacho, Buddy Profits’ Managing Director commented, “In keeping with our strategic plans for growth and diversification, I am excited as we continue to build our assets and portfolio that include some of the strongest brands in the gay adult entertainment industry. Active Duty strengthens our presence in the popular military niche and provides greater variety for our affiliates and consumers. We will continue to offer some of highest quality content and websites to our members and affiliates alike, all while powering many of the world's best known online adult brands under Buddy Profits."
