When it comes to sexy, queer reality series, nobody’s doing it quite like OUTtv.
Between the eye-opening X-rated: NYC and the better-than-we-could’ve-ever-imagined For The Love Of DILFs, the LGBTQ+ streaming network has been on a roll lately, so it’s perfect timing for the return of one of their flagship series, Hot Haus, in which adult entertainers compete to be named “The Next Queer Sex Symbol.”
Hosted by reality TV trailblazer Tiffany “New York” Pollard, the competition follows adult film performers, Onlyfans stars, and other “spicy artists” as they prove they’ve got the sex appeal and business savvy to be the best of the best.
As you might imagine, Hot Haus really goes there with steamy challenges like sexy photoshoots, livestream cam-offs, and a race to see who can take the best feet pics. Yes, really!
But, as raunchy and ridiculous as the series can get, it’s well aware of how radical it is to be a defiantly queer and sex-positive show in this day and age, especially as anti-LGBTQ+ legislation is sweeping the nation.
For proof that Hot Haus is both an act of protest and a riotous good time, look no further than the opening seconds of its season two trailer:
“This year alone, over 300 anti-queer laws have been written and passed,” Pollard reminds us in a somber tone. “What they’re aiming to do is erase queerness.”
“We’re proud of who we are,” she continues. “And, yes, I’m queer, too—no one can eat a p***y like me.”
Oh New York, never change!
As contestants compete for the title and the $25,000 grand prize, they’ll be judged be prolific gay adult film star Matthew Camp and trans icon Nicky Monet, with special guest judges each episode, including Boomer Banks, Stormy Daniels, and RuPaul’s Drag Race alum/Queerty favorite Willam.
In a press statement, OUTtv COO Philip Webb sums up the appeal of Hot Haus quite nicely: “I can say without a doubt that with its diverse cast, frank discussions about sexuality, and abundance of queer joy, there’s never been a show like it on television.”
Season two of Hot Haus premieres March 23 on OUTtv with an exclusive “Casting Special,” followed by new main season episodes dropping weekly every Thursday. Don’t miss out! And check out some more titillating promotional images below:
How can they decide on The Next Queer Sex Symbol when “queer” has come to mean so many things? Even straight people are now defining themselves as “queer.” Queer has just about come to mean everything and nothing at this point.
You’re wrong Bachy, it does stand for one thing… the erasure of gay and lesbian homosexuality (exclusively same sex attractied people) as an innate and primary sex characteristic, in lieu of everyone being sexually fluid and “open minded.”
I could easily post dozens of video links of “queer” activist stating so, but surprise surprise, Queerty doesn’t allow such links. (I know, because I’ve tried)
Ulf: queer theory has really gone off the rails. The concept of “inclusion” is part of the problem. It doesn’t mean one is against rights for all. It only means that the process of securing those rights may come under different ideological banners.
I would never be cast on one of these gay reality show. I’m not into drag and I don’t have a lot of tatoos.
That’s just it, this isn’t a gay show. The entire premise of the series is to push pansexuality as the only true sexuality, anything else, gay, lesbian , str8 or otherwise, is treated as transphobic and misogynistic.
Matthew Camp, just a year and a half ago renounced his homosexuality, stating that the female duet (C*ck Destroyers) helped him to see that his homosexuality was nothing more than misogyny toward women and helped him see and appreciate the true beauty of the female body. He now identifies as an open minded pansexual.
This looks totally cringeworthy and ridiculous.
Um, who was the last queer sex symbol?
