Gay VS. Lesbian Couples and the Lockdown; Almost Full Frontal Male Nudity In Netflix’s "Hollywood"; Ryan Field Books

Gay VS. Lesbian Couples and the Lockdown

As far as I know, all my good friends who are gay women seem to be dealing with the lockdown the same way as all my gay male friends. We’re not thrilled about it, we’re doing what we have to do, and we’re getting through with it. In other words, I don’t think gay women are doing anything differently than gay men. But there’s this article, which of course really isn’t meant to be taken seriously.

The satirical skit is a hilarious play on some of the stereotypes and dynamics that LGBTQ+ couples face, like “U-Hauling” (in the skit, Gina and Shiah say they’ve only been together for a few months but are already living with each other) and open relationships

You can check this out, here. It’s not my brand of humor, but other people might find it funny. I’m also just not in the mood to laugh about anything COVID related.

Almost Full Frontal Male Nudity In Netflix’s “Hollywood”

Here’s a story about how Netflix’s series, Hollywood, almost showed full frontal male nudity. Frankly, I’ve been watching the series and I think a little male full frontal nudity would have worked. Who doesn’t want to see a little more Darren Criss? It would have added another dimension to the story, a dimension that’s badly needed. As it stands right now, they tried for tame sex scenes, but they wound up with sex scenes that weren’t the least bit sexy. 

Though the first draft of the Hollywood scripts were far more raunchy, it sounds like neither Corenswet or Jeremy Pope were prepared for what was actually in store. Luckily for them, if no one else, the show pulled the plug on those full-frontal nude scenes.

They should have left it alone and included the original sex scenes. In this case I think it would have helped. It’s not a bad series, and I’m still watching, but more sex would have worked out just fine.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
