Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male

Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male | Vloasis sex corner | Scoop.it

Given the historic stigma around making, circulating, and possessing overtly homoerotic images, the visual arts have been especially important for providing a socially sanctioned arena for the depiction of the naked male body. They have even allowed the suggestion of homoerotic desire and physical affection within acceptable cultural and moral boundaries. Even so, much of the history of homoerotic image-making may be characterized by calculated ambiguity, coding, denial, and underground circulation.

A nicely-written article which made me think of the concept of equal rights in art.

Fairyland: Growing Up with a Gay Dad in 70s San Francisco

Fairyland: Growing Up with a Gay Dad in 70s San Francisco | Vloasis sex corner | Scoop.it

Alysia Abbott's mother liked it that her husband was bi and sometimes picked out guys for him. She also had extra flings, but she died when Alysia was two; suddenly Steve, enjoying the golden age of gay sex in San Francisco, had to raise a daughter on his own. He got aids and died before she turned 22 in 1992. Their twenty years together are the subject of her brand new memoir Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father

Vloasis's insight:

It seems like a worthwhile read.  The 80s were such a crazy, transitional time in terms of sex and health. My favorite example which includes both was the brief lifespan of the dietary supplement known as AYDS...perhaps the most unfortunately chosen name in marketing history.  (don't forget to try new peanut butter AYDS: http://youtu.be/q5u-bMhsuoI  --it can really help you take off the weight)
