Happy Mother’s Day!

Yes, it’s Mother’s Day so I couldn’t help but think of this hilarious SNL video from 2009, starring Andy Samberg, Justin Timberlake, Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson. You can read more about it on the official The Lonely Island site.

P.S. This is the uncensored version.

Are you looking for the best romances with nudity on Netflix Streaming? Then you came to the right place. Netflix calls them Steamy Romances. A steamy romance has a similar feel to an erotic thriller. It’s sexy, it’s dangerous and it’s naked. However in an erotic thriller you’re usually worried about getting murdered while in a sexy romance you’re just worried about getting in trouble at work or losing your heart.

Hemingway’s Garden of Eden (2008)

I must admit that I don’t know much of Hemingway aside from what I picked up in this film and Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. This is a thoroughly captivating movie about passion and artistic truth. Mena Suvari plays the wife of the main character (a writer that I assume Hemingway based on himself). They end up in a threeway relationship with another woman. Suvari is simply marvelous in this film. She’s daring and tempestuous. She shocks the general population with her will to act masculine whenever she fancies. Plus she engages in a battle of wills with her hubby.
Jack Huston and Matthew Modine costar.

Rated R for Strong sexual content, nudity and some language

Angel (2007)

Angel is a British romantic drama. It’s about a poor young woman, Angel, who grows up to be a rich romance novelist through sheer perseverance. I had it in my queue for a while because I adore Sam Neill, who costars. Once I began watching it though I realized that he only has a supporting role, as her publisher, as it’s fairly recent and he’s getting on in years.

I was amused by the film’s melodramatic soapiness despite the lead actress’ off putting demeanor. Random people online have described this as a satire or a spoof of period romances but there is nothing to suggest that the filmmakers intended that to be so. I think that people are just projecting what they want to see.

After she gains fame she employs a female assistant who seems to be in love with her but falls for the assistant’s womanizing artist brother. The fantastic thing about this character is that he is played by X-Men: First Class’s Michael Fassbender. Yes, he is also super hot in this. When he and Angel start getting down we get to see his fine bod.

Not Rated

The Wings of the Dove (1997)

I remember in the ’90s when this was released and was quite popular. Some how I put off watching it until this year. This was probably a good thing as I can definitely appreciate it more now as a big Helena Bonham Carter fan. This British romantic period drama is heart wrenching. Plot: “An impoverished woman who has been forced to choose between a privileged life with her wealthy aunt and her journalist lover, befriends an American heiress. When she discovers the heiress is attracted to her own lover and is dying, she sees a chance to have both the privileged life she cannot give up and the lover she cannot live without.”-IMDB.com)

Rated R for sexuality.

Captives (1994)

Captives is a British romantic crime drama about a dentist, Julia Ormond, and a prison inmate, Tim Roth, that she meets while working in prison. Roth gets out weekly to attend a school program and they begin getting hot & heavy. Public bathroom sex scene, FTW!

Rated R: A strong sex scene, language and some violence.

Wild Orchid (1990)

“Ask him if he understands what tremendous pleasure women get looking at naked men.”

Wild Orchid is about a young woman, Carrie Otis, discovering her sexuality. The “plot” is pretty lame and boring, as often happens with these types of films, but who cares? You get Otis having her sexual awakening, trying to decide on whether or not to bone Mickey Rourke and the older and more sexually free Jacqueline Bisset (Nip/Tuck) guiding her.

Rated R: May include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990)

“You want to fuck me, right? Get it over with.” “Relax. We’ll fuck when the time comes.”

This Pedro Almodovar movie is bananas. While the other films are dramas this is a comedy, an incredibly goofy comedy. The flick is about a young Antonio Banderas (then 30, but looking way younger) who is obsessed with a recovering drug addict porn star who is filming her first real movie (which is shlock). Of course there are times when he has to restrain her. Eventually she falls for him in a definite case of Stockholm Syndrome. It reminds me of a 1970s or 1980s Harlequin novel at times. If you removed the over the top goofy subplot of the horror film that she’s making you could basically shoot the rest of it as a freaky ass erotic thriller instead. The sex scene doesn’t come quickly but is long and graphic. Ah, Banderas buns!

Rated NC-17: For a scene of strong adult sensuality with nudity (aka fucking).

9 1/2 Weeks (1986)

Plot: “An erotic story about a woman (Kim Basinger), the assistant of an art gallery, who gets involved in an impersonal affair with a man (Mickey Rourke). She barely knows about his life, only about the sex games they play, so the relationship begins to get complicated.” (from IMDB.com). I actually prefer the prequel because of my love for Paul Mercurio.

Rated R: May include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991)

At first glance you may wonder about this choice. Yes, it is PG-13 but it’s sexy. If you are a Charmed freak, like me, then you will love this. Brian Krause, aka Leo, stars in this at the yummy age of 22. Milla Jovovich costars and was 16 at the time. It’s about 2 children who aren’t related but grew up together alone on a tropical island, so at first it would seem like they are siblings. The film is about what happens when they start to come of age and don’t know what to do with their new hormones. Of course they eventually decide to get busy on the regular. I know, it seems a bit creepy the first time you watch it. Then society tries to intervene. I’ve never seen the original film because it doesn’t interest me.

Rated PG-13: Some material might not be suited for children 13 and under.

White Palace (1990)

“All I know is that when I’m not with you I’m a total wreck.” “And when you are with me?” “I’m a different kind of total wreck.”

Amazing movie! This flick is about a sexy middle aged woman (Susan Sarandon) who ends up meeting a hot depressed yuppie (James Spader) a couple of times and starting an, at first, purely sexual relationship. The film’s title is a take off of White Castle, in reference to the famous restaurant. Sarandon’s character works at a take off of this chain, White Palace in the film, due to legal difficulties.

Not only do these two have to deal with their age difference but also their class difference. Sarandon keenly feels what it’s like to struggle to make it while Spader is living the good life. Sarandon is also battling her own demons and has an affinity for Marilyn Monroe. Heck yeah, a cougar who’s obsessed with Marilyn and Spader? I totally sympathize. The moral of White Palace is give a good blow job and he’ll fall in love with you. Oh and it’s not rape if you look like Susan Sarandon.

Rated R: Adult content, graphic language, nudity,strong sexual content.

Dream Lover (1994)

Admittedly Dream Lover is not a great movie. However it’s sexy and disturbing and stars the amazing James Spader, ah. He quite quickly marries the always icy Madchen Amick after they meet. She seems to be hiding a disturbing past.

Rated R: May include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Damage (1992)


“All through dinner, I had one thought, one desire. To touch you. To hold you.”

Wow, just wow, this is one of those films that I can’t believe that I hadn’t seen before. The creepily sexy Jeremy Irons starts a tawdry affair with the fiance of his son, Juliette Binoche, in this British flick. Worst dad ever! There is a lot of hot, sex in this. Rough too. He really likes to manipulate her neck. I was worried that he would break it. Irons has some type of government job, which I suppose was supposed to have be controversial, considering his extracurricular activities, back then, but is super commonplace now. Even the posters/video covers were awesomely provocative!

Rated R: Strong sexuality, and for language.

Summer Lovers (1982)

I have mentioned this movie before because fuck yes for a young, full frontal Peter Gallagher! Darryl Hannah and Peter Gallagher are young lovers who vacation in Greece and fall into a threesome relationship with a local woman.

Rated R: May include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

“…it’s okay you didn’t like Broken Hearts Club or Kiss Me Guido. Let me tell you a little secret that we try to keep within the community, gay movies suck, but until the law is changed we’re still obligated to go see ’em” – Will & Grace

I tend to disagree with W&G on that one but it’s gives me a chuckle.

I just discovered the fun classic film blog Garbo Laughs and their Queer Film Blogathon recently. It’s a great idea and open to all film bloggers. According to the site “The Queer Film Blogathon will be held on June 27, 2011. The focus is on lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or otherwise non-heterosexual, non-gender-binary depictions or personages in film.” So even if you found it late, like me, you should go contribute. This is to celebrate that June is Gay Pride Month. P.S. Congrats New Yorkers! Same-sex marriage was legalized Friday in the state of New York.

I am always realizing that there are genres that I need to add to the Netflix Instant Streaming category.

Click the film titles to be taken directly to the film on Netflix.

RuPaul’s Drag Race (2010) (Seasons 2-3) (Available Until May 22, 2013)

This is one of RuPaul’s reality shows that airs on the Logo network. They have various competitions to determine who the best drag queen is. I actually haven’t gotten around to watching it yet because I always realize it’s on when the season is already halfway through. Luckily I can watch the whole second season all the way through now. I have watched Drag U though which features drag queens who give women makeovers to improve their self esteem and win, of course. I really want a drag queen fairy godmother. It would so fun. In the meantime you can use the Dragulator, I did.

I Love You Phillip Morris (2009) (Available Until February 03, 2013)

Yes, I have previously mentioned my love for this film. Jim Carrey stars as the highly intelligent Steven Russell in the dark comedy I Love You Phillip Morris. He is a middle aged man who comes out and then becomes a con man to support his extravagant lifestyle. Ewan McGregor costars as the love of his life, Phillip Morris. Leslie Mann costars. The film was adapted from the book, I Love You Phillip Morris: A True Story of Life, Love, and Prison Breaks by Steve McVicker, which is based on the real life of Steven Jay Russell.

Dorian Gray (2009) (Available Until February 16, 2012)

Dorian Gray was a pretty good adaptation of my all time favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. They stick to the story, the dialogue (!) and there is plenty of debauchery. My main peeve is that the lead, Ben Barnes is a little odd looking. Dorian Gray is the story of a young, handsome man who finds out that the painting that was painted of him is what will age and show his sins while he stays eternally young looking. You can imagine how much bad stuff one can get into in that situation. There is a gay kissing scene, which is why I included it. Colin Firth (yum) and Ben Chaplin co-star.

Puccini for Beginners (2006) (Available Until March 20, 2022)

This is a romantic comedy starring Gretchen Mol (The Notorious Bettie Page), Elizabeth Reaser (Grey’s Anatomy), Justin Kirk and Julianne Nicholson. It’s about a lesbian who starts wondering if she’s really gay after a breakup. It’s a good little movie with a great cast.

Brokeback Mountain (2005) (Available Until December 16, 2014)

When two seasonal sheepherders unexpectedly fall in love they have to deal with their own feelings, their wives and life in general is this stormy drama. The leads are played by the fantastic late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Their wives are played by Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. Randy Quaid, Linda Cardellini and Anna Faris costar. The film was directed by the super talented Ang Lee (The Ice Storm). If you haven’t seen this yet then you must, as soon as possible.

The L Word seasons 2-5 (doesn’t include 1 or 6) (2004) (Not Currently Available)

The L Word was the lesbian answer to Queer As Folk. It’s definitely more downbeat but still a great show. I simply chose a picture of Katherine Moennig as Shane because she’s my favorite character.

Tying the Knot (2004) (Available Until October 11, 2013)

This is a documentary about same-sex marriage laws in the US. It is from 2004 so I’m sure that much of the info is out of date but it looks interesting. If you want to get riled up you may also want to check out another documentary, 8: The Mormon Proposition, which is about the LDS trying to prevent the gay marriage bill in California. Reviews by Mormons say it’s biased, but of course it would be. That’s the point, to show how ridiculous their views on this are.

Nip/Tuck Seasons 1-6 (full series) (2003-2009) (Available Until July 1, 2014)

Man, I love Nip/Tuck and it’s over the top lifestyle and problems (many caused by their own egos) of 2 handsome plastic surgeons. Over the course of the show creator Ryan Murphy (Glee) featured many LGBT plots including transgender arcs. There was also a bit of a tease plot line about Christian (Julian McMahon) worrying that he might be gay (he’s a real horn dog for the ladies).

Wet Hot American Summer (2001) (Available Until October 1, 2013)


(gif source: fuckyeahguyskissing)

Wet Hot American Summer has to be included for the young, giddy makeout scene between Bradley Cooper and Michael Ian Black whilst a bit of a way away their friends are talking about how to get them chicks. From the mind of David Wain this is a hilarious satire of camp counselor movies. The cast also includes David Hyde Pierce, Janeane Garafalo, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Michael Showalter, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Marguerite Moreau and Ken Marino.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999) (Available Until August 1, 2012)


Boys Don’t Cry is based on the true story of Brandon Teena (Hilary Swank) who was a trans man (a person who is born female but gender identifies as a man) who falls in love with the pretty Lana (Chloe Sevigny) and the hate crime that follows. Peter Sarsgaard and Brendan Sexton costar. Netflix also has The Brandon Teena Story, which is the documentary about the real Brandon Teena.

Edge of Seventeen (1998) (Available Until September 1, 2012)


Plot: “A gay teen finds out who he is and what he wants, who his friends are, and who loves him, in this autobiographical tale set in middle America in the 1980s. Growing up, learning about life, love, sex, friends, and lovers.” (from IMDB.com). I was a big fan of this adorable movie as a teen. It stars Chris Stafford, Tina Holmes, Andersen Gabrych and Lea DeLaria.

Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss (1998) (Not Currently Available)

This comedy is uneven but it starred Brad Rowe (who Bop promised me would become a star, what happened?) at the height of his hotness. It’s no wonder that the movie is about Sean Hayes’s photographer character trying to turn him gay so he can romance him.

Kiss Me Guido (1997) (Available Until April 1, 2012)

Kiss Me Guido is definitely one of my favorites. Back before Jersey Shore (ew) not everyone was into the macho Italian American guy from NYC. Nicki Scotti (Detroit Rock City) plays this guy who really wants to be an actor but is working in a pizza shop. He’s a few slices short of a loaf so when he sees GWM in an apartment ad he thinks that it means “Guy With Money” instead of “Gay White Male”. When he meets his new effeminate, gay roomie (in the theater scene, score) laughs and friendship ensue. My sister and I still use that abbreviation incorrectly today for giggles. The movie costars Anthony Barille, Anthony DeSando, Craig Chester and Jennifer Esposito.

Chasing Amy (1997) (Available Until April 1, 2012)

Chasing Amy is a great comedy that proposes the question “Isn’t Ben Affleck so hot that a lesbian would fall for him?”. Just kidding, she falls for him as a person. The problem is that he can’t get her exes out of his head (which could happen in any relationship). Because it’s a Kevin Smith film (from his View Askew oeuvre) it has his trademark filthy humor but is also touching. Plus they are all comic writers (or tracers) so it’s like a good geek fantasy. The film stars Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Lee (Banksy!) and Jason Mewes. Characters from this film make a cameo in his later film, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

In & Out (1997) (Not Currently Available)

Yes, I did already mention In & Out in one of these and while I don’t usually do repeats I had to do so with this film. You have to love Kevin Kline as teacher who struggles with coming out late in life but in a quite silly manner. Tom Selleck plays his love interest. The film costars Joan Cusack, Matt Dillon, Debbie Reynolds, Wilford Brimley, Bob Newhart, Shalom Harlow, Shawn Hatosy, Lauren Ambrose, Selma Blair and Glenn Close. It was directed by Frank Oz.

The Birdcage (1996) (Available Until January 1, 2012)


The Birdcage is a lot of fun. It’s one of those movies that any time that you come across it on TV you have to watch it, yet again. It’s a remake of the 1978 French-Italian film La Cage aux Folles. The adorable Dan Futterman is about to marry a pre-Ally McBeal Calista Flockhart. The problem is that his fathers (Robin Williams and Nathan Lane) are both gay and the owners of a drag club while Flockhart’s father (Gene Hackman) is a Republican Senator. So Williams fakes a different profession, Lane dresses as and pretends to be Futterman’s mother and they pretend not to be Jewish. Of course tons of hilarious scenes ensue. Diane Wiest, Hank Azaria and Chrstine Branski costar in this Mike Nichols film.

Jeffrey (1995) (Not Currently Available)

Jeffrey handled the fear of Aids with humor, not easy to do. Wings era Steven Weber stars as Jeffrey who is worrying but falling for a guy while trying to be celibate due to his fear. Definitely a flick that I’ve watched quite a few times. The film costars Patrick Stewart, Nathan Lane, Michael T. Weiss and Sigourney Weaver. Weber even tweeted about the movie Friday night in reference to NYC’s gay marriage approval.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) (Available Until January 1, 2012)



Yeah, you probably already know how awesome this movie is but we still have to address it now. I loved this movie so much that I used to covet this bus when I was young and imagine traveling cross country having adventures in it. It’s about a group of drag queens who travel across Australia to perform in fantastic outfits and deal with prejudice on their awesome bus, Priscilla. Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving costar. If you’re already a big fan then you may want to pick up the Blu-ray which, according to the screencaps, here, looks amazing.

Heavenly Creatures (1994) (Available Until January 1, 2012)

This drama is about the tumultuous friendship of two young ladies played by Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey that leads to horrifying revenge. I recommend checking out the Film Experience’s Best Shot thoughts on it as well as Melanie Lynskey’s on the same site.

My So Called Life The Complete Series (1994) (Available Until March 1, 2013)


Though most of us first recall ah, Jordan Catalano (i.e. Jared Leto, front man of a pretty so so band) in all of this teen angst about high school we not only got to see Angela (Claire Danes) break out of her shell with the help of her drunk bestie Rayanne (A.J. Langer) but also their other bestie Rickie Vasquez (Wilson Cruz) who was actually out, in high school, in 1994, that takes balls. It’s a fantastic show that despite it’s super quick cancellation is discovered by new crops of teens every year, who still identify with it. It can also bring back the nostalgia for those of us who are a bit older but were here for the 90s.

Another Country (1984) (Available Until July 7, 2012)

I watched this flick a few months ago during one of my revisiting Cary Elwes phases. It’s a story about a young gay student (Rupert Everett) attending a boarding school in 1930s England. It’s very slow moving but worth checking out to see all of these hot guys in their super young days, including Colin Firth!

Longtime Companion (1989) (Available Until May 1, 2013)

Plot: “Perhaps the first film to put a human face on the AIDS epidemic, Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as “Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder,” we watch the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of our protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry us from the it-couldn’t-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on all of our lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times’ refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as “Longtime Companions” of the deceased.” (from IMDB.com). This drama stars the talented cast of Campbell Scott, Stephen Caffreey, Patrick Caddiy, Brian Cousins, John Dossett, Mary-Louise Parker and Dermot Mulroney.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) (Not Currently Available)



The Rocky Horror Picture Show was not only the first movie that introduced me to a sweet transvestite but also overpowering horniness in general as a child. It was one of my dad’s favorites. It’s an awesome musical about sci-fi, rock and roll and horny oddballs that a square couple meet on their honeymoon. Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon are fantastic. The whole cast is pretty amazing though (I still need to be Magenta for Halloween one day!). The whole cast is pretty amazing though (I still need to be Magenta for Halloween one day!). The film co-stars Barry Bostwick, Richard O’Brien and Meat Loaf. The movie has a huge following and tons of live shows as well as audience participation shows (that are sometimes aired on TV for Halloween) are often going on. A really neat looking Blu-ray book set was released for the film’s 35th anniversary in 2010.

Mango on SNL


“You cannot have the Mango!”

Chris Kattan played the adorable male stripper who could hypnotize any man into falling for him on Saturday Night Live during the late ’90s. Kattan was a cast member from seasons 16 through 23. There isn’t a definitive list out of each episode that featured Mango but you can watch Saturday Night Live The 1990s and Saturday Night Live The 2000s to find out. My sister even got me a Mango birthday cake back in the day, super neat.

Unfortunately Kattan used to get ragged on all of the time by his cast members for this character so in later episodes his unknown (but we were assuming at least bi) sexuality is revealed to be straight and he’s married, boo. SNL has also featured The Ambiguously Gay Duo cartoon mainly through those years but also once last season as well (with Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon as the live action versions). You can read a little more on gay sketches on SNL here.
