1NewsIcon A review of James Franco's Interior Leather Bar, an homage to the graphic gay sex cut from the controversial gay classic Cruisin': "Interior Leather Bar does contain one very graphic sex scene - a tender encounter between two men we are told are a real-life couple, which seems to be entirely against the film's idea of re-queering gay sex. And in general it's much more about talking about sex than actually showing it, which also makes its claims toward provocation a little weaker."

  3. Belonsky, you are hilarious: "British thrown..." What a howler.

  4. The idea that a King or Queen of Britain could ascend to the "THRONE" AND have their same sex partner recognized DOESN'T warrant its own article? or at least a proper spelling of throne... Really?

  5. I think all straight actors should just refuse to answer questions about gay sex scenes. Period. Imagine if a reporter asked a white actor what it was like to kiss a black actress.

  6. Why can't more of the world be like Radcliffe? (heavy sigh)

  7. @Eric--You make an excellent point. Maybe with the younger generation it will start to be more like that.

  8. Who in hell wants to watch the video of someone strangled to death?

  9. Get it straight, people. If you're going to report, report the facts. A semi-automatic is not an assault rifle. It's just a rifle. A pistol grip doesn't mean anything.

  10. Does anyone even believe that being called out for things like "thrown" embarrasses anyone at Queerty?

    Posted by: anonymous | Jan 21, 2013 6:55:51 AM

  11. Even more embarrassing that I
    m not even on the Queerty site for this "thrown" error. LOLOLOLOLOLOL

  12. How come nobody ever asks gay actors what it's like to play straight?

    we're the ones who spend drama classes and workshops making out with members of the opposite sex, and we somehow manage to do it without vomiting.

    and eric, you're totally right. nobody asked Billy Bob Thornton about "how he managed to kiss Halle Berry in Monster's Ball"

    now, a few decades ago they might have.

    further: people will ask about how one can "love" on screen more than they'll ask about how one can "kill or harm" onscreen.
