Investigators are combing through a slew of gay pornography websites after the military scandal involving the leaking of sexually explicit photos of female Marines on a site known as "Marines United" has expanded to include male victims as well, USA Today reported. Investigators are attempting to determine whether active-duty troops were involved in any pornographic photos.

Similar to the Marines United case, it remains uncertain whether the men who appeared in the photos had consented to have their images shared publicly.

The Marine Corps isn't the only military branch affected by the scandal. Images of men in the uniforms designated to sailors, soldiers, and airmen also appeared on a variety of Tumblr sites.

The Pentagon has established a joint military task force to oversee the investigation, said MarryAnn Cummings, a spokesperson for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

On some of the gay Tumblr sites, fully dressed troops appear in the photos with their tags visible. At least one Marine did not agree to have his photo shared among a collection of images showing men having sex, according to Lt. Col. Eric Dent, a Marine Corps spokesman.

If active duty members are identified in any of the photos, there are severe consequences, including court martial, the justice system in place for trying members of the arm services.

The developments of the scandal come just a few days after the top Marine, Commandant Gen. Robert Neller, testified before the Senate this week and vowed to "get rid of this perversion to our culture."
