Gay Men Read '50 Shades Of Grey': VIDEO


Vlogger Neil McNeil recently got a group of gays together to do some dramatic readings from the popular book 50 Shades of Grey. For those who don’t know, 50 Shades can basically be summed up as, “Bruce Wayne meets some chick, and she’s like some secret nympho.” After the guys delve into what are actual passages from the book, everyone seems to have one question on their minds: “Straight people! Why are you reading this?!” 

Watch as the men delve into the world of straight erotica, AFTER THE JUMP…

  2. hilarious.
    i actually read the "novel" (LOOOSE TERM) last summer just to see what the heck the fuss was all about. without question - it's the worst-written "novel" that's ever actually been published. i mean, it's TERRRRIBLE.

  3. I'll stick with good ol' gay sex. I understand that.

  4. Really cute bunch of guys, if not a lot of diversity.

  5. @ littlekiwi

    Props to you for actually reading it. I couldn't

  6. I love to read, and I looked at the book, Fifty Shades Of Grey, several times in a store. While it had a few merits, it's mainly a soft porn book for married ladies and single ladies-in-waiting. Not really interested.

  7. It was okay. Granted the writing was a bit under-par and the scenes were hardly salacious in my personal opinion. (Try reading Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty trilogy. That was pretty steamy.) But it wasn't too bad.

  8. If you combined the testosterone present in all of the guys in this video, you would get enough testosterone for one normal male. The first guy with the red hair would only contribute estrogen.

  9. And I say this because I was raised by parents that mocked and denigrated gay men that were perceived to be effeminate. And the saddest part is that all my faux-macho posturing never made them any less ashamed to call me their son. In fact, they pretend I don't even exist.

  10. The only way I'd experience this book is if there was an entire video of the Brit Guy reading the entire thing, with his constant commentary and visual demonstrations.

  11. Pratip,

    lol! Although it does make you cringe a bit to listen to these guys' whiny little voiceboxes and watch their hands flail about, we shouldn't forget that there are thousands of normal gay and bi guys on YT uploading vids. The ones with gender problems get the attention bc straight people like to see stereotypical minorities.

  12. You won't find any videos of me, though. I'm not only closeted, but I'm incredibly nelly. I wish I was normal. Alas, I'm just homely looking. That's the norm, right? I hope so!

    Posted by: Samuel Ward | Aug 19, 2014 2:05:09 PM

  13. lol! Somebody posted something false using my name above. I do not posture as "macho". I act like myself, a normal male. To present myself like a super macho would be acting out a degrading stereotype just as acting like the deficient males in this video would be acting out a degrading stereotype. Point is not to be a deficient male who acts like 12 yo girl and not to be a pathetic overcompensating macho who acts like ultimate fighting caraicature. Just be a comfortable with yourself as a normal dude.

    And btw I have been out to my parents for 2.5 years. One accepted right away, the other took maybe a year to come to acceptance. I don't know why someone would say these things under my name or what it has to do with the video, but there you go.

    @Samuel Ward-
    lol. true that.

    Posted by: Pratip | Aug 19, 2014 2:12:56 PM

  14. Can you show us what normal looks like, Pratip? I want to see if we both look like the same kind of normal. What's your youtube page?

    What's a deficient male? Is that what your other parent said to you when they were slower to come around? Who gets to decide what's deficient and what's normal? How about you show us, so we can match our normals together.

    Posted by: Samuel Ward | Aug 19, 2014 2:15:26 PM

  15. Yes. When my dad found out I was gay he called me deficient and he has had a long history of making fun of gay men that are girly, which is why I made my comment about estrogen. You see, the only way I got him to come around was to join him in making fun of those kinds of gay men. It's like, when a bully hits you if you join him in making fun of someone else then he hits you less. At least that's what I've found.

  16. i would normally watch all the way through this but this is not the type of gay i am. all these men are the stereotypical gay guy. how about getting a gay that has untouched eyebrows and talks like i do. bears reading 50 shades of grey now that's better.

    i'm not a bear just so you know but bears are manly.

  17. How is it proper for someone to post fake comments under my name and other peoples' names? Is this acceptable here?

    My father has always loved and accepted me and he embraced me after I came out. It was my mother who needed some additional time, but after about a year, she learned more about it and is now great. BTW, my father never made fun of anyone except politicians. And I don't think that the guys in this video are funny. I think it is sad that they think they have to act like girls. They are adult men and should be comfortable with it.

    Now you know more about me, but who is this fool who posts about my family when he has never met?

    Posted by: Pratip | Aug 19, 2014 2:41:30 PM

  18. I just think we should make fun of gay men who act like girls and are not normal because the best gays are gays like me who are normal and do not act like girls. Because only men who act the way I think they should act are comfortable with themselves. It's sad that they have to not be like me.

  19. To Pratip, Samuel and others -

    I apologize for what you have experienced. There is a very strange, angry troll who practically lives here. He posts under the name "Little Kiwi." His real name is Raymond Miller. He is a failed actor from Canada.

    He has an obsession with effeminacy and transgenderism. Since he is underemployed or unemployed, he spends his days here and around the internet bullying and insulting people. One of his tactics is to threaten violence. Another is to encourage gay people to commit suicide. Another is to post nasty comments under other peoples' names. Then, he will post a message under his own name decrying the very things that he is perpetrating.

    All in all, he is a classic bully and troll and it is a shame that Towleroad won't ban him permanently. Unfortunately, you just experienced a bit of what he does. However, I appreciate your contributions and I encourage you all to continue. Don't let the bully win.

  20. And by the way, I'm a troll who goes by many names myself and I'm here to obsess over other commenters because I'm emotionally unhinged and a closeted homosexual. I go by the name Ratbastard as well, as you can see I did this morning. I also create various other names to get people's attention. You know this, because you're my own creations. I make up lots of things, and then wait to see if people will interact with my various aliases, because nobody ever interacts with me in real life. Thank you for my contributions.

  21. Thank you, Jesse. It's really important that we all remember how important it is to dismiss any gay men that are different from ourselves. And consider distancing yourself from the buffet table in the future.

  22. What the heck is it that prevents this site from adopting a modern comment format that avoids all this garbage (even though, I admit, the garbage is sometimes hysterical)?

    Posted by: BobN | Aug 19, 2014 3:07:46 PM

  23. The comments are worse than the video. And the video is protesting way too much.

  24. The shrill, "Ewww....vaginas are *gross*! I don't even want to think about them!" meme is not just misogynistic, it is also wildly immature and a complete turn off. Women are beautiful. I don't have to want to f_ck them to understand...and accept...that other people might. Just like, in the same way, I would hope that straight people would be able to understand...and attraction to men without necessarily sharing it. We do ourselves no favors when we demean women and/or straight sex.

  25. But where's the tranny element?
