      Hetero sex makes me sad.

      Unfortunately this is another ‘gay’ movie that features lots of heterosex and no gay sex.

      I think most gay directors are obsessed with pandering to het audiences, hoping to get approval from them. Most don’t give a flying fuck about LGBTQ audiences, because apparently we’re not a big enough demographic to showcase their “art” to.

      Actually, most gay directors are making indie gay films that focus solely on LGBT audiences, with plenty of gay sex, since that’s what sells. Check out the smaller gay films at film festivals and on DVD to find stories by and about members of the LGBT community.

      Hmmm. I was excited about this film while watching the interview but then the vast majority of it vanished when I saw the trailer. I don’t like the message “I am a guy. I can put it in anything”. I know I can’t have sex with a woman, even one that is my dear friend. Not fond of the line “you’re the only man for me” directed at a woman either, Also, that seems to be a LOT of straight sex for a gay movie! Still, I think the star and the director are a couple of cuties, so I may give it a chance anyway.

      1) There is only one sexual encounter in the movie and, while being het, has repercussions that effect the character’s story arc.
      2) The protagonist isn’t into casual sex, but I don’t think anyone above has actually seen the movie so its much easier to criticize.
      3) @DarkZephyr those were jokes you’d get if you’d actually watched it.
      4) I went into the movie with low expectations because the trailers are terrible but the reviews on rottentomatoes.com convinced me to give it a chance. So glad I did. It was touching and laugh out loud funny (notice I didn’t use the abbreviation). It’s been a long while since I’ve seen a “gay” movie that had heart, was well acted/directed, and made me suggest that my straight friends see it.

      I truly hate these gay movies where gay guy has to center his emotional life around his straight girl best friend. I’m sick of the stereotypes, both straight and gay. How’s about some real people with real problems. Enough with the Rock Hudson and Doris Day schtick.

      There isn’t just one sexual encounter.
      The two leads are in bed together trying to conceive in several scenes, and then there is heterosex between the female lead and another man. Then there are the semen-injection scenes that are peripherally sexual.

      The storyline that was more interesting to me was how does one establish intimacy with a man who has been ‘married with kids’ but now is divorced and experiencing desire for men – but this was almost entirely concluded off-screen.

      I’m sorry, but a guy jerking off so he can drop sperm in a vagina that he isn’t interested in is not a sexual encounter any more than being artificially inseminated at the doctor’s.
