8 Sean Cody GIFs that’ll make your Wednesday worthwhile!

Arguably one of the most popular and beloved gay porn studios on planet earth, Sean Cody has had most of us here in the TLAgay.com office entranced from the get-go. Showcasing a bevy of some of the hottest, most-chiseled, most sexually satisfying mono-named models in gay porn history, the studio’s roster reads like a Hall of Fame: Brandon, Calvin, Curtis, Ethan, Jess, Pierce (aka Ryan Rose), Stu… it’s practically ridiculous. They finally went condom-free towards the end of 2011, and released their first DVD – Brandon – in 2015. (We’d been begging for them to do so for years; they’re consistently some of our best-sellers.)

To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, we bestow upon you a few treats that’re certain to make you wanna unwrap your box. Click on any image to see the movie it’s from!

16-year-old Nathan (Berenger Anceaux), lives alone with his father Stephane (Patrick Timsit). A newcomer to his high school, he is invited to a party and soon becomes smitten with Louis (Jules Houplain), a boy from his class.

Available Light

2015, United States, France and Germany

Available Light is a sexy, funny and even sometimes disturbing experimental feature film by prolific writer/director/actor/artist Todd Verow – the same guy behind Frisk, Anonymous, Vacationland and Bad Boy Street. The film follows numerous unconnected people in different cities as they try to escape their loneliness through love, lust or some combination of both. The film was shot in real locations using only available light (hence the title). The viewer is both a voyeur, watching the characters in intimate situations that are not meant to be seen, and an active participant, imagining what the characters are going through and making connections between them that may or may not be real. And, as anyone who is familiar with Verow‘s previous work could probably guess, there is plenty of hot male flesh on display.

Do You Take This Man

2016, United States

Anthony Rapp may be in a lot of recent headlines thanks to his bravery in being the first to publicly out Kevin Spacey as a massive creep, but lets not forget that he’s an excellent actor who heads up some terrific gay-themed movies. Here, he leads an impressive ensemble cast in a touching comedy-drama about a long-term gay couple having last-minute jitters before they get married. On the eve of their wedding, Daniel (Rapp) and Christopher (Mean Girls heartthrob Jonathan Bennett) are having their closest friends and family over for dinner. But when a long-lost friend of Christopher’s shows up unexpectedly, and their already stressful day spirals out of control, the couple realizes they must rely on the kindness of their pals and relatives to get through the event in one piece. Co-starring familiar faces like Thomas Dekker, Mackenzie Astin, Marla Sokoloff and “How I Met Your Mother” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Alyson Hannigan, Do You Take This Man is a realistic and absorbing look into what it takes to make a relationship work in this day and age.
