‘American Gods’ Just Aired TV’s Most Explicit Gay Sex Scene Ever
Starz’s timely adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods depicts two men having explicit (and, yes, very hot) gay sex. And the men also happen to be Muslim.
American Gods has been called, by various critics, “the most important show on TV,” a show that “couldn’t be more timely,” and, by The Daily Beast’s Melissa Leon, “a celebration of immigrants in the face of Trumpism.”
Adding to those superlatives—and underlining its importance—Sunday night’s episode featured the most graphic gay sex scene there has ever been on TV. And it happened to be between two men who are Muslim.
Progress is measured in watershed moments.
Billy Crystal plays the first openly gay TV character on Soap. Ellen is first the openly gay lead of a sitcom. Kurt and Blaine lose their virginity on Glee. Mitch and Cam get married on Modern Family.
“Gay” shows like Queer as Folk, The L Word, and Looking depict gay sex that is actually hot, How to Get Away With Murder features anilingus in primetime, and, now, two Muslim men go at it for four intense, romantic, boner-filled minutes on American Gods. (Folks, you see the boner.)
It’s incredibly sexy. And, yes, every second of it is important, down to the part where one guy ejaculates flames into the other.
The sequence in question occurs during a narrative interlude that introduces Salim (Omad Abtahi), a man from Oman who is in New York City selling tourist trinkets. He’s having a shitty day. He’s been waiting all day for a meeting with a guy who refuses to see him. It’s pouring outside. He can’t get a cab.
A taxi finally picks him up, and it is driven by an Ifrit (Mousa Kraish)—a supernatural figure in Middle Eastern stories and Islamic lore who is considered to be among the most powerful of jinns.
The other thing about an Ifrit: His eyes are burning flames.
The two vent to each other about their lives moving from the Middle East to New York. “They know nothing about my people here,” the Ifrit says. “They think all we do is grant wishes. If I could grant a wish do you think I would be driving a cab?”
They share an immediate, powerful compassion. They touch hands and it goes beyond just being sweet. It’s arousingly intimate.
Salim invites the Ifrit back to his hotel. In the elevator, they hold hands. Once in the room, the Ifrit showers and emerges from the bathroom with a towel around his waist. He drops the towel, the flames in his eyes start flickering intensely, and there it is: a full-frontal shot of his penis.
My comments: Every Christian should understand that as this Culture Degenerates further, NOTHING will be off limits. The godless have No Restraining force, in fact it is just the Opposite, the Demonic Forces encourage ever increasing Debasement.
