There Should Be Male Full Frontal Nudity In “The Great”

First, we’re watching The Great on Hulu staring Nicholas Hoult and we’re loving it. In short, it’s a true parody of the life and times of Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia.  

Nicholas Hoult plays Catherine’s husband, Peter, who is also the Emperor of Russia. He’s self-centered, obtuse, self-indulgent, and seriously hot as hell. He’s one of the worst characters I have ever seen in a TV series, and yet you can’t help but love him. And Hoult plays the part to perfection. 

There are also a few nude scenes where Holt shows off a little. There’s one scene toward the middle of the series where Holt walks around the palace stark naked. Unfortunately, we only get to see him naked from behind. And while that is, indeed, a treat to see, I think in this case full frontal male nudity would have worked perfectly. It would have pushed the story forward, added even more humor, and maybe even made Peter more endearing. 

Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen. There’s no male full frontal in The Great, and we never get to see what Nicholas Hoult is packing between those gorgeous long legs. We get to see everything else he’s got, except for one important thing. It’s not like there’s no nudity at all. And that’s a shame because full frontal would have worked in this case, and it wouldn’t have been wrong in any way. It really wouldn’t have been dirty or sexual either. In fact, if they had really exaggerated the male full frontal with an extra large fake penis it would have been fantastic in a campy way. 

In any event, this lack of full frontal nudity…and imagination…doesn’t mean you won’t love The Great. I highly recommend it. Very little is historically accurate, but you will smile and everyone involved with it is wonderful.

 Here’s more about it. 


Neil Jones Addresses Gay Rumors

Neil Jones from Strictly Come Dancing is now talking about gay rumors. Of course one problem is that most of us really don’t care, and another problem is all the homophobia associated with this story. 

Actually, in all seriousness it’s more about a straight couple breaking up. But it’s pop culture and gay related, and totally harmless. 

You can read it all in full, here, if you have the stomach for it. 









“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.
