Str8 guys doing gay porn

You’ve seen that episode of Friends where Joey is pleading with his agent for some work; all she can suggest is gay porn. My Fb page is littered, bestrewn with dialogues about the ideological acceptability of watching str8 guys doing gay porn, the aesthetics of the above etc.

Personally, I have no problem with the situation; I’m puzzled with the dynamics of gay guys being disgusted with women’s bodies and vice versa. Ok, you get to the muff and there’s no rampant tool; on the upper torso there are no plates of muscle. I, myself, am not particularly built; the one extremely muscular guy I was intimate with, introduced himself as a footballer. His torso muscles were rigid and cold, unpleasant. I think the obsession of the younger gay generations with gym workouts and steroids has its own obvious downside. Equally, the Fb exploration of lesbian reactions on first handling a penis is puzzling to me; it’s a de-contextualized experience. Does that make me vaguely bisexual? I’m not sure.

We could involve ourselves in reams of arguments about the bisexuality of these willing participants. The first thing that needs to be remarked on is that the US economic system clearly does not adequately pay its workers. Apart from that, these guys have no problem doing what comes naturally. You can imagine a willing Joey saying: “I’m an actor, so I kiss a guy. It’s part of the role”. There is a lot of role play, making those incidents where the guys swap positions a refreshing experience. In fact, having again watched re-runs of episodes of Friends I must note the humour of str8 guys doind gay things: Ross and Joey napping together on the sofa, guys kissing as part of their helping Joey rehearse for a role; the situations sometimes but not always provoke ridicule.

What springs to mind however is the reverse of an anecdote in a novel by Dorothy Sayers. Lord Peter Wimsey is talking with his stock broker friend, who tells him he recently took Lord Peter’s wife to lunch. “But how do I talk with her?”, he asks his friend. Lord Peter says, “Talk to her as if she were a man”.

The guys are athletes at the peak of their abilities and fitness; they are intimate in a very athletic way, but also manage to share affection. SeanCody.com is a successful enterprise. It has to be noted that Sean Cody was originally involved in the early films; he had the integrity to tell his fiancee about the business; interestingly, she thought the idea was hot.
