Watch the NSFW Trailer for Boy Undone

Yesterday, we published a list of our favorite gay sex scenes from the past several years. Today, we may have found a new contender thanks to writer-director Leopoldo Laborde‘s Boy Undone. The trailer alone is pretty hot and heavy.

 

Two young men spend the night together after meeting the previous evening in a notorious gay club. The next day, however, the host wakes to find the boy he picked up bewildered and confused, unable to remember his name or anything about his past. Lacking any type of identification or obvious clues, the boys begin to search for the truth among fragments of memories that may or may not prove reliable. A chilling homoerotic thriller, Boy Undone is queer guerrilla filmmaking at its most intense.

 

Check out the erotically-charged trailer for Boy Undone below and click here to pre-order your copy. It comes to DVD May 29th.

The 10 Best Gay Sex Scenes in Recent Movies

The past several years have welcomed a great deal of excellent gay movies (see Tom of FinlandBeach RatsBPM (Beats Per Minute)God’s Own Country and Call Me by Your Name from 2017 alone). There are also a ton of all-time “Greatest Gay Sex Scenes” lists online (we may even be responsible for a few).  So we thought we would narrow the category and just focus on releases from the past five years – trying to find those scenes that really got our pulses racing. In no particular order, here are out TOP TEN stand-outs!

Beach Rats

2017, United States

On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie, an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie begins to scour hookup sites for older men. When his chatting and web-camming intensify, he begins meeting men at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously entering into a cautious relationship with a young woman. As Frankie struggles to reconcile his competing desires, his decisions leave him hurtling toward irreparable consequences. A thoughtful meditation on burgeoning gay desire and denial, Beach Rats was a breakout indie hit in 2017, featuring a stellar, thoroughly brave performance by up-and-coming British star Harris Dickinson (playing a New York teen with total authenticity). In the film’s hottest scene, Dickinson fights past his nervousness to strip down to nothing but his socks and seduce his attractive, much older male partner (Douglas Everett Davis) – who, though we know little about him, sports a wedding ring (and some questionable palm-reading skills).

The Boy with the Sun in His Eyes

2009, United States

The untimely funeral of a friend rockets John (Tim Swain) into the orbit of the flamboyant Solange (Mahogany Reynolds), a B-movie actress/one hit wonder musician best known in Europe for her roles in 80’s Italian horror movies. John soon follows her into heady whirlwind romances with cute French pop stars and deadly (but hot!) Milanese model managers. They barely survive murderous performance artists in Paris and fatal gourmet food poisonings in Italy. John begins to realize that Solange’s world is far more complex and dangerous than he could possibly have imagined. Her chosen lifestyle abounds with trips, tricks and traps. Based on the novel by James Derek Dwyer, prolific underground filmmaker Todd Verow‘s The Boy with the Sun in His Eyes is a sexy-smart absurdist comedy that doubles as an homage to 1980’s trash cinema favorites.
