'True Blood' Gets Steamy With Dreamy Jason Stackhouse And His Faerie Friend, Ben: VIDEO

Trueblood

This week's episode of 'True Blood' found Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) lusting after, and shaving, a male faerie named Ben...in his dreams, the Huffington Post reported. Though the HBO series, now in its sixth season, has put plenty of homoerotic action on display, our own recent countdown of its steamiest man-on-man scenes shows just how little of this sexy show's sexuality is gay, plain and simple. Thus far, dreams, manipulation, shirtless stand-offs, and death have marked the show's gayest moments. Throw us a bone, HBO - we want some true romance. 

For now, though, getting lost in Jason's dream is just fine.

Watch the sensual encounter, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. "It's OK, just do it like you do it to yourself."
    Sometimes the subtext is just too texty.

  2. Ben is NOT Jason's Faerie FRIEND. Ben is Warlow the vampire that is coming after Sookie. You couldn't have watched the latest episode and written what you wrote here about "Ben".

  3. Give me an effin' break. They've had true gay romance on this show... Russell Edgington and his lover Talbot for one. Russell and Stew Newlin. Lafayette and Jesus. Tara and the boxer she had a fling with in New Orleans. Tara and Pam.

    Just because none of those characters live up to your idealized body shape like Ryan Kwanten or Joe Manginello, you choose to ignore those relationships?

  4. The hottiest scene on TB so far. Two men just shaving each other (!), but the subtext is full of sexual tension. When Jason wakes up, he sees (watching down there) he has enjoyed it. I love it. Ryan and Rob are so handsome.
    @ripper, yes and no, yes in a way this scene is hotter than those showing gay relationship and no, of course I like those story lines, too. But sorry, Ryan and Joe are my fav in TB.

    Nothing more needs to be said. Except maybe there should be, if this is an actual attitude out there that you have to be blonde, caucasian and twinkish to count, or built like Hercules. This is actually rather frustrating.

  6. Tara and Pam are the best gay couple on the show. But I like bitches.

  7. Well said, ripper and Zeta.

  8. Sorry. Hot lesbians do not count. nor do hot threesomes with Joe. Russell never ever kissed his bitchy little boyfriend. They've used Jesus' death to utterly neuter Lafayette, who might as well be Maya Angelou now. And using gay sex as a way of killing someone is worse than nothing, Eric.

  9. There have been some gay relationships, but they have been rather sexless, and the Russell/Steve relationship was almost quaint. But there have been plenty of steamy hetero sex scenes. This clip was erotic, but they just had to stop before Jason's lips touched Ben's skin. And they are coy about male nudity too. The show served up a whole season of full frontal Lilith, but when Billith emerged at the beginning of this season, his nudity was obscured. We had four fully naked female servants of Lilith, but when Sam shifts, so does the camera. This season also had two naked werewolf women making out, but it was not lesbian, it was purely to titillate Alcide and the male viewers who get off on that. This nudity free, panic-inducing shaving dream is the closest we've come to any gay sexuality.

    And speaking of this, the woman who recaps True Blood for Huffington Post says the shaving scene "weirded her out" and that it weirded out *everyone on twitter*. In a show full of blood sucking undead, werewolves who tear people apart, faeries coming and going from other realms, and men changing into horses, homoerotic shaving is what she finds *weird*. That doesn't just reflect on her, but it reflects on the show for being so coy about same-sex sex.

  10. This show is actually pretty homophobic. The only truly sexy scenes involving two men are always "in a dream". Total cop out. OK, if you actually do have gay sex in this series, you will end up very dead.

  11. @ Dastius Krazitauc

    All of the female nudity you cite in your post has been of non-main characters. They are NEVER going to show full frontal nudity of any of the main characters on the show. They have shown penises in the past. But, they have been of extras who were being held hostage by vampires and the like.

    Posted by: anon | Jul 9, 2013 11:53:04 AM


  12. Why not show main characters naked, anon? I know Skarsgard wouldn't have a problem with it. And didn't they show full frontal Luna?

    But main character or not, the nudity skews female by a huge margin.

    Posted by: Dastius Krazitauc | Jul 9, 2013 12:00:59 PM


  13. So the previous couple of commenters suggest that the show must show gay sex or male nudity to represent authentic gay characters or relationships. How very NOM of you.

    Posted by: ripper | Jul 9, 2013 12:11:54 PM


  14. @Dastius Krazitauc I don't know why. That just seems to be the rules they follow. I don't think Joe Manganello would have a problem with full frontal either. I've read that he has done it before live on stage. I've also read that when you "think" you are seeing full frontal on the females in True Blood, they are actually wearing a merkin.

    Posted by: anon | Jul 9, 2013 12:14:32 PM


  15. @Ripper, actually what the posters are suggesting is that if female nudity is going to be shown and hetero sex is going to be shown, then male nudity and gay sex should also be shown. It's about representing things in the same manner.

    Posted by: anon | Jul 9, 2013 12:17:22 PM


  16. Well, ripper, having straight naked couples screwing while the gay male couple take strolls, and dance and talk about looking for a pet is so very 1980. It's not that I *need* to see gay sex or male nudity, but I question the absence of it when there is an abundance of hetero sex and female nudity. This show has always seemed to use the treatment of supernaturals as metaphors for the way society treats gay people, but the show itself is unequal in what it chooses to portray.

  17. Hottest dream ever and that guy playing Ben, Rob Kazinsky, is beyond sexy. His hairy chest and belly look delicious.

    Posted by: Bobby | Jul 9, 2013 12:36:31 PM


  18. Nope. You just choose to ignore the male nudity that has been shown or the gay couplings that have appeared because, as pointed out previously, it's not the specific males you want to see naked (i.e. Manginello or Skarsgaard). Try being less shallow.

    Posted by: ripper | Jul 9, 2013 12:41:42 PM


  19. There is no gay male sex in this show. None. And no gay male kissing either. Who do they think watches this show: straight men?!

    Posted by: steepike | Jul 9, 2013 1:25:14 PM


  20. There's more gay sensuality on Doctor Who.Jesus INCEST is more acceptable than male homosexuality to American audiences.

    Posted by: steepike | Jul 9, 2013 1:27:17 PM


  21. That was such a hot scene when I originally saw it last Sunday night. Yeah, TB never ceases to amaze me. Sorry but Vamps are definitely hotter and sexier than half-dead flesh rotting Zombies.

  22. Oh and the problem with Tara and Pam is that PAM LOVES ERIC and Tara is just a consolation lesbian.

    Posted by: steepike | Jul 9, 2013 1:32:45 PM


  23. Okay since we're now censoring people here. I would like to see men having sex in exactly as much detail as we constantly see heterosexuals having sex. That means kissing, naked skin, embracing, and orgasm

    Posted by: steepike | Jul 9, 2013 1:51:14 PM


  24. I think the argument shouldn't be about which male characters can or should be shown in sexual situations; it's that the gay relationships on True Blood have been fairly sexless, at least compared to the heterosexual ones. Not only sexless, but also negative in their sexuality (i.e. death, manipulation, a scary dream that someone awakens from)...

    Posted by: JoeVlad | Jul 9, 2013 1:58:04 PM


  25. Right, because Sookie and Bill's relationship has been such a positive one. I believe she tried to stake him two episodes ago. Sam's girlfriend died. Jason's relationships have been nothing but trainwrecks including at least one dead girlfriend I can remember. Tara's relationship with Eggs ended when he was killed.

    It's a show about vampires and other demons. Of course, people are going to die.
