WATCH: These Boys ‘Blow’ Like Beyoncé

Undies

The combination of Bey’s sultry lyrics (“Can you eat my skittles? / That’s the sweetest in the middle / Pink that’s the flavor / Solve the riddle”) and these boys’ moves is probably enough to make you blush.

Get ready to blow, AFTER THE JUMP…

Cyndi Lauper Explains the Sexual Inspiration Behind 'She Bop': VIDEOS

Beefcake

In September 1984, Cyndi Lauper’s single “She Bop” reached number three on the U.S. Billboard’s Hot 100 — not bad for a song about female masturbation.

In a recent interview to promote her new two-disc release of She's So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration Lauper revealed that she actually got the idea for the song from a drunken associate and by fingering through the pages of a Blueboy gay porn mag. Hence the lyrics:

Well I see them every night in tight blue jeans
In the pages of a Blueboy magazine
Hey I've been thinkin' of a new sensation
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
Oop she bop she bop

Do I wanna go out with a lion's roar?
Huh, yea, I wanna go south and get me some more
Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine
They say I better stop or I'll go blind
Oop she bop she bop

Lauper has also said she recorded the “She Bop” vocals while nude and “tickling herself” in the studio. The late 80s era Parents Music Resource Center included the song in their "Filthy Fifteen" list of songs they found most objectionable. PMRC went on to create the parental guidance warning sticker system placed on albums with “objectionable” content — you know, songs about sex, drugs, violence, or the occult (the things that make music awesome).

Award-Winning Short Film Explores a Gay Teen's Quest For a 'Jackpot': VIDEO

Jackpot1

"Jackpot," a short film from writer/director Adam Baran, follows fourteen-year old Jack Hoffman, a gay kid living in the pre-internet era (specifically, 1994) as he sets off on a quest for a stash of gay porn whilst being pursued by bullies. Tinged with a certain type of magical realism that featured prominently in teen films of the 80s and 90s, "Jackpot," attempts to balance the scale by telling an off-beat yet endearing coming of age story centered on a gay male teenage hero. Said Baran of his intent in making the film,

Mandate"I really made the film because i loved teen movies and never really saw one for gay kids that both addressed their sexuality in the way that straight movies like Weird Science or American Pie or Superbad did, and let them get what they want. Jack in my film learns that he has to fight back for what he wants, even if it means he has to take a couple of licks. I think that's a resonant message for gay kids everywhere."

The film has already shown at numerous festivals and won Best Short Film at the 2013 Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Baran hopes to expand the short into a feature and is currently seeking funding.

Gay British Couple to Have Sex on TV, Then Discuss It

Sex-Box2

Channel 4, a cable network out of England, is sure to receive strong viewership numbers with its new program called "Sex Box." Part of the oft-scandalous channel's Campaign for Real Sex season, "Sex Box" is an interview-style program in which couples have intercourse in an opaque cube on a soundstage, then discuss sexuality with a panel directly afterward. A gay male couple, John and Matt, will be among the show's participating three couples.  

The Guardian reports:

A sound-proofed box in a television studio may not be a dream romantic setting, but then most lovers would probably not leap out of bed for a postcoital interview with Mariella Frostrup. Yet this is the format of a new Channel 4 programme that aims to "reclaim sex from pornography" by delving between the sheets of British people.

...

"I approached it with great trepidation and a degree of scepticism, particularly about why we needed a box, but ultimately I think it was a really really mature – surprisingly for television – look at a subject we've allowed to proliferate in its worst manifestations and refuse to confront," she [Frostrup] said.

The show shys away from the gratuitous sexuality so often employed to unsuccessful character-building effect in film and television, instead aiming for a still-sexy exploration of what sexuality means for the real couples. 

Channel 4's head of factual programming, Ralph Lee, said there was "nothing salacious" about the show and that "strangely it's quite a chaste programme – there's no sex in it".

"The explosion of online pornography is one of the stories of our time and this absolutely intends to be an open, adult, quite deep conversation about sex," he said. "The experts we have are not flippant people. That said, there is a levity to the conversation. It's not a massive furrowed-brow type conversation because there's something mischievous when you watch it. We're confident there's a sincere motive behind it."

Channel 4's other Campaign for Real Sex season programming include kick-off documentary "Porn on the Teenage Brain," airing September 30th, as well as a doc about the female pursuit of better sex, called "The Week the Women Came." Another reality program titled "Date My Porn Star" unites three porn fans with their favorite celebs.

Gay Porn Company Uses Proceeds To Help LGBT People In Need

R-DEEP-IN-THE-DARK-large570
Torn between your passion for social activism and your love of gay erotica? Thanks to Boys Town Studios, the new branch of Monarchy Distribution that's launching this upcoming fall, you'll apparently get to kill two birds with one...um...bone. 

"100 percent of the profits from all these movies, including DVD sales, video-on-demand, cable and broadcast will be donated to our newly-created non-profit," said Mike Kulich, owner of Monarchy Distribution, in a statement to HuffPost Gay Voices. 

"Anyone will be able to write Boys Town Studios and tell their stories about how bigotry and homophobia has affected their lives, and we will step into help those victims as much as we can."

The studio's first film, Deep In The Dark, will be released this October, and will specifically target its funds towards LGBT aid and advocacy in Russia. While Boys Town doesn't claim to be making any sort of statement by using gay porn to generate funds for charity, the studio is bound to raise at least a few eyebrows when it comes time to donate its proceeds. Nevertheless, since anti-gay activists have previously used gay porn to scare up support for their cause, it is nice to see the scales tipping back in the other direction. 

Is Boys Town on to something? Is it a good idea to use gay porn to generate proceeds for charity? Sound off in the comments section below. 


Royal Winnipeg Ballet School Expels Gay Student For Doing Adult Films

Jeppe Hansen

22-year-old dancer Jeppe Hansen was accepted to the prestigious Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and received a scholarship for their professional division in September 2012. Then officials discovered that in his short time attending the school Jeppe chose to act in porn. Officials decided was no longer welcome in the school, reports CBC.

Jeppe decided to do porn after being frustrated by what he viewed as the constraints of ballet. Porn was a side project that would allow him to be the artist he wants to be, while ballet "is restrictive. Everyone tells you what you have to do, how to look, what to weigh, how to perform [and] be the artist you are."

Emmy-award-winning producer Jake Jaxson, the owner of the site that Jeppe performed for, shares a similar sentiment in regards to the artistic value of porn and is trying to blur the lines between mainstream and adult entertainment. He wants to make films that have storylines as well as sex, and points out that the extreme violence present in many films is not regarded as being outside of the mainstream. This echoes James Franco in Interior. Leather Bar. when he stated "Sex should be a storytelling tool, but we’re so f**king scared of it," and pointed out how the common and natural acts of sex - gay sex in particular - are subjected to much higher levels of censorship than extreme violence.

Though a victim of the sex-phobic culture that insists on the dichotomoy that "porn is bad" but consumes it en masse, slut-shaming the actors who dare perform in it all the while, Jeppe insists that his dancing career is not over. For now, he is taking a break until he can find a place where he can fit in.
