Saw some reruns of the vampire series True Blood.
It concerns a dream of one of the characters which is close to the "almost" Tom Cruise/Antonio Banderas kiss in Interview with the Vampire.
There are several gay characters in the series, but their issues usually lie elsewhere.
Despite erotic potential, in the horror context of the series the vampire remains a disturbing monster, sleeping in dirt and so forth.
It is a strange scenario, set in a southern US context where a third species of "humans" have replaced religious slogans like "God hates fags" with "God hates fangs":

It was indeed!
I have scene on p.1 of the thread.
It's a "pathos" scene, but intimates that not everything between men can be said - a lot is said in silence.

I've never seen Youtube remove so many clips as the embedded military scenes on this thread.
I guess some don't like military scenes viewed as homoerotic, even though some academics already speak of "war pornography" concerning the spectacle of violence and slaughter.
But goodness gracious, we can't have attractions between the same gender!

Where did they actually kiss?
OK reviewing - kind-of at the end, but it's definitely not a real or "classic" movie kiss.
Ahem, "the waste" - you mean an above waist shot?
He hears the phone and wakes up (typical - technology sometimes sucks more than vampires).
Thanks for the vote of confidence going to the beach!


At least True Blood is realistic in one sense: Traditionally in film vampires have no reflection, but they always have perfect hair.

I was actually going to post OZ clips, but they do show too much, I think.
Eroticism is more an implied mental interpretation, rather than nudity or sex scenes.

I have never been in no military and do not care about it.

But Philadelphia like you said had alot of unspoken homoerotic scenes. I thought the film was very well made unlike what films are today although we are just 18 years later. Being gay males is still taboo in society no matter what people think.

I remember when i used to watch eastenders, and they had there first male kiss in it, in late 90's wasn't it. A bloke who pretending with that character Tiffany or something and his friend kissed. If people remember. I just wonder how many males are pretending today like that character of that bloke was with her but he preferred males, lol. Only scene in eastenders i have liked. Showed how males still have to pretend to be interested in females.

Yeah, and this is where Queer Studies go further.
They look beyond safely classified "gay and lesbian" authors or film.
They look for same-sex moments in material that is often fiercely heteronormative.
The questions become: why are such scenes present?
I'd like to think that every moment in film is well considered by the makers.
What is the role of homoeroticism in propaganda?
I guess it varies.

If you go and research ben hur, there is alot of suggestive homo erotic behaviour put in there to start it off for hollywood. You see the friendship of the two main characters as supposed to be suggestive of a homo erotic friendship, and it did suggest it.

This was ben hur in the 50's. So its been going on for along time.

True about Ben Hur, as Gore Vidal later admitted (see thread).
As one can see from the Oz material (which will probably be removed - thankfully not my post or call), more blatant homosexual material once again "Others" homosexuality.
Traditional tropes of the gay as "monster" are reworked.
There is no notion of the sensitivity that defines erotic attraction.
Sensitivity amongst male characters is often problematic.
Oz ultimately reinforces stereotypes of "diseased" homosexuals in my view.

this a good line of inquiry I have had an on and off interest in because I have a collection of original Life Magazines from the Thirties and I realized after reading them that the thirties was a ridiculously homosexual time in our country
the adds are over the top with the theme of 'guy gets gal, guy takes guy from gal' I wish I had my large format scanner back I could make a whole thread of this

then after the war we(the country) went hetero, those adds from the thirties just wow!
especially the alcohol and tobacco ones but also anything involving auto supplies and menswear

That is the strange thing about homoeroticism.
There are certain cultures and points in history when "normal" is self-evidently divided from "abnormal".
Usually those moments pathologize femininity as well.
Being gay seems so "abnormal" that men have erotic attractions and lots of sex, but they never see it as valid.
Just take the Victorians, for example.
Bizarrely, these are also systems of institutional abuse and boy/man rape.
Still today homophobia allows such systems, while attacking openly gay men and women.

that's the interesting thing! and you called it perfectly the cultural motif I'm referring to was undisguisedly misogynistic.

case in point a Prince Albert 9 frame comic style add that featured men and their girlfriends picnicking by a lake
and older man smoking a pipe shows up ,there is a brief discussion about male freedom to enjoy smoking and the last frame is all the men standing on the shore looking at ripples in the water and laughing ,no women!

I guess the message there is pretty clear

Good example.
It's basically dividing "The Madonna" wife who doesn't smoke from the "whore". A patriarchal dichotomy sees women as Madonna/whore. So this would have entrenched gender roles.
Still in my youth many bars were "men-only".
I think the idea is that important issues like politics and forming alliances are not for "good" women.
Men discuss important issues, and women can politely chat about flower-arrangements (ha).

So the very forbidden and "smutty" nature of some kinds of sex seemed appealing.

Still think the end game is androgynous human race of one gender. Thats not the male or female of today but a mixture, so you fems can get off your high horse, it will be a mixture of both, lol.

I have run into a mind frame that represents some kind of left brain right brain,...I don't know how to describe it ..
syndrome?? wherein men seek anonymous sex with other men but it isn't a gay thing it's thrill thing?

no matter that they do it regularly or have stacks of gay porn ,or are members of gay clubs they will say they are'nt gay

mostly they are married and mostly they have a goddess ,Fairy Godmother, all mother fixation on women

in other words unrealistic assumptions about women ,such as she will forgive me no matter what I do ,or if it's broken she will fix it ,if money is tight she will magically make more etc. But they don't have these same assumptions about their male peers

Ancient Sparta is good place to study this really weird socially indoctrinated gender roles . homosexuality was a state institution. I sure there were 'weirdos' who preferred sex with women hahaha!
