Oh come all ye gays and lesbians and other people.
Everyone has a memory of that same sex moment that haunted you for days after the viewing. Please, let's talk about it.
Strangely it's never the "porn" or targeted "homosexual" material.
Usually it's something like the male topless scenes in Ben Hur, Fight Club or war movies.
It's never overtly sexual, but a moment you can day-dream about, and treasure forever.
Sometimes it even undermines your politics, and you wish you could be with those guys from "Band of Brothers", or "Platoon".
It makes you feel like being in the worst of history.
It makes you feel so alone.
It's like the current "safety" is a poor swap for the brotherhood and togetherness of the past.
Oh I want to be 20 again and be in a war-movie ... just for the sights ... oh yes I do, I do, I do.

I remember being surprised after seeing Interview With the Vampire, with some of those scenes of interactions between Cruise and Pitt, thinking, "I think I just saw some kinda homoerotic movie."

And going further back, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Conan the Barbarian. And those stills of him standing with that long sword.

Well, here's some of my favorites.

Most of it is stuff that could tear your heart out, but that is what love and brotherhood is about.

I remember watching "Interview with the Vampire" back then in the cinema. There is that scene where Banderas almost kisses Tom Cruise. It was ground-breaking back then. It was kinda like will they or won't they, and then somebody behind us said loudly: "They didn't pay them enough", and everybody started laughing!
However I found the Cruise vs. Pitt tension far more homoerotic, and Banderas looked a bit like a goth transvestitie?

*This scene is just a warm up*

I know... it doesn't qualify as homoerotic - but it's still worth an honorary mention.

Thanks for those posts and movie scenes.
Phwoar! I saw "Top Gun" several times but I kinda missed that, probably because I hated anything militaristic at the time, but boy, that movie sizzled!
Aso thanks for the lady scene - perhaps because of feminism in my studies I've kind of anticipated woman-to-woman eroticism and double-speak. Nevertheless, that very sensitive, humerous scene reminds me that some movies are due for some serious re-interpretation (snicker, wink-wink).

The whole Frank Miller "300" was a festival of homo-eroticism.

It was a pleasure to work for Frank on "The Spirit" not his best work but he always ate and visited with the extras and crew. A Class act!

Oh man "300' is a good movie, thanks for that.
I think it was so obvious in parts that "Meet the Spartans" took the mickey out of it. But what a movie!
PS. The specific link seems disabled, not sure why.

Don't know why, but this song always gets me sentimental and wobbly.

Certainly not erotic, but there is a masculitiny between these actors and their characters that is unforgettable. It does say something about relationships between men that is almost beyond speech.

I have to add the following for World War II fans - I once had a comrade:

Not quite a movie clip, but something from South Africa concerning the Anglo-Boer War, and its "scorched earth policy" and concentration camps, which killed so many thousands of Boer women and children:

Seeing two guys together just kind of physically repulses me...

To each his own, and if it floats your boat...great for you...but personally, I don't even get what the ladies see in us....let alone how we'd find each other attractive...hehe....

That said though, I'll limit mine to gal-gal moments..., what a flick for this....!!! (especially the river scene)

Showgirls....even though the two leading ladies never got it on with each other, the scenes where there was that tension? Yikes!!!

Bound....Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon? How can you go wrong?

Gia....Angelina Jolie as a wet, hot mess....

Yeah, to each their own.
In "homoeroticism" one will rarely see two guys actually touching in a gay way. Even in the two "gay" films in the above links ("Brokeback Mountain" and "Philedelphia") actual gay scenes are rare, and as quick as it takes a cat to get through a cat-flap. I suppose it explores something about masculinity (the male scenes at least), and blurred lines between comaradery and romantic love. From a gay gaze it leaves a kind of haunting feeling. I suppose it's the vulnerability that hides behind stoic masculinity, which when exposed invokes a kind of pathos. The fact that one character often eventually dies increases the cathartic experience.
Although gay men may recognize and discuss it openly (after all cinema first gave gays the opportunity to stare at men without public censure), the homosocial warrior ethos has been used frequently for mass manipulation. Even a lot of the links above could be considered militaristic and right-wing. The irony is that a lot of people who enjoy these films, songs and themes are staunchly heterosexual, and some even homophobic - or are they? (Reminds me a bit of the homophobic "Nazi plate queen" dad in "American Beauty").

A classic homoerotic moment....

Poor Jane Russell. None of the athletes in their little shorts even notice she's in the room.

Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder in Alien Resurrection when Call first sees Ripley in her "cage" and they do the thing with the knife.

The scene at the beach between Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore in Charlies Angels Full Throttle.

Oh...and I almost forgot...Star Trek the Motion Picture when Spock returns from V'ger after mind melding with it and he is trying to explain to Kirk about his feeling for him.

If you are fantasising about guys from war movies. then you are probably have the gay virus.

I dont fantasise about war movies, like that. nor do i when i see a topless guy in tv.

I might think. "i need to workout more to look like that buts thats it."
