Gay p*rn on TV

I remember maybe twenty years ago, a Danish satiric cartoonist (the talented Nicoline Verdelin) made a strip where you saw two men dancing, poker-faced and very stiff, at arm's length. And somebody asked what that was, and the answer was: "two gays dancing in a British TV series."

My, how times have changed in a hurry. I just watched the first episode of the British Queer As Folk, thinking it was a comedy show. What it was, was more like gay porn. Full nudity and full-on sex scenes, only thing missing is the actual erections and penetrations. And if things continue this way, I won't be surprised if we can see those also, withing ten or twenty years.

Of course you could say the same thing about The L-Word. But that's with pretty women, so I quite liked that. :)

I'm just surprised, not complaining. Anything that breaks down more taboos, I'm all for.

What? A man licking a 15-year old boy's butt does not do it for you?? :)

I'm not so sure Eolake. I remember my Mum telling me that films were sexier in the old days when everything had to be suggested and inmplied; now that sex has become more explicit, a lot of the eroticism has gone out of it. I saw a sex scene from a cop movie a while back (I'll spare the embarrassment of the actors by not naming it) which I thought was about as sexy as pumping up a bicycle.

That's definitely true.

As any other living organism or corporation the gay community wants to procreate. And while in general it has difficulty to do this biologically it uses social methods like exposure and propaganda. In the past the Church was performing the phagocyte function. Now Church has less influence and liberal governments lobbied by the community allow more and more such propaganda allowing them to spread.

So, no wonder.
