Will Gay Books or Movies Turn Me Gay?

Greetings fans. Okay so, guys, you’re sitting there with your hot wife, girlfriend, or both… *snicker* and you’re watching this great movie. No, it’s not a porn but it might have a scene you didn’t expect to see, something you weren’t looking for when you scanned the backside cover reading about the flick. What is it?

Ahh! No it couldn’t be! Its, its’ A HOMOEROTIC SCENE! Wha? What’s that?

Ooh you know, it’s a gay scene, you know two men kissing, groping, maybe one drops to his knees like he’s about to give the other a blow job? *laughs* “Fuck no! I can’t watch this!” Quickly you get up, so fast you almost trip and fall on your face. You storm out the room and into the kitchen to have a drink!


This hilarious scene is what Shar experienced when she watched the movie Dorian Grey with her husband. Read more about that here.

Oh boy! What did you think was going to happen? Did you think this little scene would do something to your brain and make you suddenly want to be with a man instead of your hot girl(s)? Good grief!
The article where Shar mentions this as well as a HILARIOUS tweet from one of my fave writers and best pal’s Daisy Harris, made me want to write this blogpost. She tweeted about her new book, Built For It, which is on my buylist. Her message, which was tongue in cheek, “My book is so hot, it turned my husband gay!” #falseadvertising. A little memo for those who don’t Tweet. #hashtag might get people to notice the message more because it’ll trend. It certainly caught my eye and I let her know how funny that was. Then I got to thinking, is that the fear straight men experience when they don’t want to watch a gay scene or read a book that has homoerotica?

Sounds silly doesn’t it? Like it’s some kind of plague or something and as Shar points out in her article, these are the same men who say they aren’t homophobic. Oh but you are, man! Dammit what’s a phobe?

Anyway, no offense to Shar’s man and many across the globe, or fuck maybe you need to be offended.  If you think seeing these kind of scenes are an issue, you may need to get a clue. There’s nothing wrong with seeing two men or women kiss on screen or reading it in a book. It’s quite hot actually!
Doesn’t turn you on? Okay, that’s your prerogative if it doesn’t but really? Must you run away from it? C’mon! No big deal. “I just don’t want to see that.” Yeah Shar feels that way when a slasher scene comes up in a horror movie. It’s a fear of what she see’s, that my dears is phobic. Same thing applies to you men who runaway from a movie PHOBIC, say it with me, P-H-O-B-I-C! Homophobic.

Are you offended? Oh well. It’s just my opinion. I can understand if you don’t want to watch a porn with nonstop male male action, it might be a bit much but a kissing scene? C’mon. It makes your girl hot! Most women love the homoerotic! She quivers and curls her toes when reading a BL love scene, gents. Get with it. This is good for you in the long run, isn’t it? You get more sex if she’s aroused. DUH!

We’ll talk more about that later. Right now, leave me your rants. Why are you so afraid? Do you feel it will turn you gay? And oh shudder, if it did, is it a problem that it turned you on? Hell, not for me. It’ll make me love you more.

BLMorticia with her snarky series about a man looking to shed his "gayness" The Army's the place to get right, right? Think again!

Overall Blurb

A gay curious young man whose fell over the fence more than a couple of times is seeking the armed forces to become more of a straight man under the duress of his family. He leaves behind his on and off again lover, Dari Kirk.

At the local recruiter’s office, he meets Corporal Justin Belvidere who can tell he’s hiding something. Running away from something he needs. He knows just what training facility to send him to. The one part of the army that everyone knows to be one of the finest and most upstanding platoons in the armed forces but they have hidden secrets.

Captain Morris Dunst runs Army company 9669. A proud group of men known for their tenacity, wit, and strength. He’s produced some of the best soldiers in his ten year tenure, teaching them how to be real men.

That take it all like men.

Cody is unaware he’s stepped into the platoon that makes the gay man realize his true potential as a well adjusted uncloseted male in the homophobic society. Morrie makes sure of that along with his right hand man and boyfriend, Lieutenant Darios Bright.

Cody will walk out of company 9669 with a new outlook and respect for his newfound manhood. The men in the platoon will see to it.

All information in the book about army life is factual while the company itself is all fiction as well as the characters. Its intent is to be humorous while showing the growing pains of a young man as he learns how to accept his homosexuality and the relationship with his lover without fear.

Book One
Basic Training

Book one begins with the introduction of Cody McCayne and his childhood friend Dari Kirk who’ve been having sex on the down low for a while until they’re found out. This scares Cody and he decides to cease their relationship.

Due to the constant taunts and chiding of his father and peers, he decides that joining the army is the answer for him to “get right” in his words. He thinks this will dispel his gay persona and make him a real man.

However, during his ten week tenure he’ll meet the characters at Fort Jackson of company 9669, the only all gay and lesbian platoon who operate as straight soldiers by day but play and teach at night. This section is run by Captain Morris Dunst and his lover, first Lieutenant Darios Bright.

When he straightened the wheel, he got out the truck, sprinting to the place he hoped held his ticket out of here. He opened the doors, letting a couple of army men out before he went in.
“Wow,” he mouthed, glancing about the place as if he were a tourist. Large hallways, cream colored walls with decorative crown molding. The floors were made of linoleum. Everything was so clean. The glare blinded Cody.
His eyes fixed of the small line of men huddled together to hand their papers to a soldier sitting behind the desk. Cody tightly gripped the application in his hands.
Do I really want to do this? How will I handle being yelled at by someone basically the whole time I’m there?
Suddenly, young McCayne began to question his decision. He tapped his feet, fumbling with his free fingers as he eyed the men talking with the representative.
Why am I doing this?
Yes, why the fuck was he? Joining the army just so he could gain acceptance? Make his asshole dad proud of him? Would this be worth it?
“Iknowiwantthisiknowihaveto…damnit!” He grit his teeth.
What if he didn’t like army life? What if the captain was an asshole he wouldn’t be able to tolerate?
What am I saying? They’re all assholes. None worse than my dear old dad.
The men in front of him inched closer to the recruiter’s desk.
Cody could feel his palms sweating along with his brow.
What the fuck? I need to man up. That’s my whole reason for doing this right?
He straightened his shoulders and cleared his throat.
Only one more ahead of me. I can do this!
The young man shrugged his shoulders and gulped hard. He stuffed one hand in his pocket and eyes darted from left to right.
Oh my fuckin’ God, I’m gonna…
“Next!” The man in front of him moved away and suddenly it was Cody’s turn. “Yes…um…Sir?”
The guy behind the desk gave him a wry smile. “Yeah, you ready to come serve your country, boy?” He has a slight southern accent and piercing blue eyes.
Damn, the man is hot.

Thanks for stopping by, BL. Great post as always! ~ Blak Rayne


  1. TY for having me Blak! As always!

  2. Since I discovered yaoi and m/m romance and all forms of homoerotica my husband has gone through major opinion changes it has to be said.

    He used to be one of those hell no runs away and cringes in a corner guys at the sight of a naked man on tv or two guys doing anything. He refused to watch Brokeback because it's about gay cowboys ffs.

    And now. 4 years after realising that I do indeed find it very hot to see two guys make out he has progressed to the point where he can sit and actually critique a guy in a gay porn film about his technique! He even admits that some of the more effeminate girly boys do it for him on occasion if he's feeling horny enough and not het porn is available.

    He still doesn't like to see the kissing and loving bits between two guys and he also still refuses to watch Brokeback! His reasoning...Porn is porn but the kissing bits are intimate. It's the intimacy that really scares them i think.

    1. LOL everything freaks out my hubby. I wish he'd be more open to watching it with me. :D

      Thanks for the comment Toni

  3. You're very welcome! It's always a pleasure, hun. ^_^!!
