Those TV Gay Sex Scenes…Did They Really Go Too Far?

Those TV Gay Sex Scenes…Did They Really Go Too Far?

Billy Crystal said something the other day. The Botox’d and beloved comedian blanched that gay sex scenes on TV sometimes push it “a little too far” for his tastes.

While some were quick to scream homophobe, one should understand that the man’s been schticking it up on the boob tube for literally 800 years and probably hasn’t realized that the TV times are changing — from Lucy and Desi sleeping in separate twin beds to Patrick sweatily topping Kevin on Looking. Whereas straights have been pushing the boundaries of good taste for years, the gays are finally starting to catch up with shows like the aforementioned Looking, How to Get Away with Murder and Empire. (Gay sex is getting very realistic.)

We’re out of the closet and screwing on the kitchen table, people!

Here’s a celebration of some sex scenes that would make Billy Crystal — or anyone uncomfortable with two men going at it — clutch his pearls.

    Lets not have double standards here. I read that fifty shades of grey has 20 minutes of sex in the movie and nobody is kicking against it.
    Gays have sex in real life, just like straight people. I grew up watching the antics of Sharon Stone and Kim Bassinger who had a lot of sex in their movies.
    If we say there is too much sex on tv, that is true whether gay or straight sex. Lets not make a distinction between the two

      Dennis…is that really you or someone claiming to be you?

      I ask because the colour of whatever it is that appears beside our names is quite different from what I am used to seeing.

    the problem I have is that gay sex isn’t given an honest portrayal in movies. they make gay sex seem so spontaneous…and we all know gay sex cannot be spontaneous. nothing spontaneously goes into the ass, its a whole ritual getting that place prepd for penetration, and dont get me started on the lubing and the various attempts to get it in. I’m yet to see a gay sex scene on mainstream tv that is to an extent convincing.

      Noahs Arc came close… All the others are plain lies… It’s one of gge messiest experiences ever.. Don’t even get me started with the lubing.. Making out can be spontaneous, but penetration is on a whole diff level. Getting in is hard as hell unless ure about to screw a hoe.. A lot of positioning and proper practice before the deed can be done.

        You should watch Looking, the way the show is crafted might not be for everyone but it’s honestly the best depiction of gay sex I have seen on TV… It deals with Douching, Rimming, Fingering, lubing and all that needs to happen before the actual penetration. The sex scenes themselves feel very real.

        I am scared for the show tho, the ratings havent been good this season…just hope it doesnt get cancelled.
        Noah’s Arc was good but I think Looking edges it out…based on the sex scenes that is.

    a few words for Billy Crystal: “Bitch, you can crash, explode into a fiery ball and die!! If you cant deal with the fact that gays are finally doing what the rest of mainstream Hollywood has done for decades, live with it or die off cos it ain’t going anywhere, not now not ever ****zooms off on broom leaving behind a trail of glittering rainbow colored dust***
