Eating Out: Drama Camp

2011, United States

Drama Camp, the fourth film in the beloved Eating Out series, is packed with laughs, smarts and plenty of full-frontal nudity. Zack and Casey (Chris Salvatore and Daniel Skelton) find that their relationship is in a slump, but things are about to change this summer at “Dick Dickey’s Drama Camp”! When Zack meets Benji (Aaron Milo) there is an instant connection. However, not wanting to interfere with Zack’s current relationship, Benji pretends to be straight. When Benji and Zack get cast as lovers in an updated, sexed-up version of ‘The Taming of the Shrew’, their self-restraint is put to the test. And when the sparks start to fly, Casey’s trusted friend Penny (Lilach Mendelovich) takes matters into her own hands by setting a poison oak trap for Benji so that Casey can step in as Benji’s understudy. But when Beau (Ronnie Kroell) starts crushing on Casey, Casey wonders if he and Zack are really meant to be together after all. Introducing a diverse ensemble of characters, Eating Out: Drama Camp is an over-the-top, deliberately raunchy sex comedy with the heart and soul of a sweet summer romance.

All Yours

2014, Belgium

Lucas (BPM star Nahuel Perez Biscayart) is a young and penniless Argentine escort who arrives in a small Belgian town to visit Henry (Jean-Michel Balthazar), a gay bakery owner who fell in love with him online. Henry buys Lucas a plane ticket to Europe hoping he will sleep with him and help out at the bakery. While Henry and Lucas’s ideas about living together clash, Lucas grows closer to his female employee Audrey (Monia Chokri). The three of them soon find themselves caught up in a complicated love triangle. All Yours earned rave reviews at film festivals when it first debuted. Variety said that it “consistently surprises with the maturity and
generosity of its emotional outlook” and called it “refreshingly poly-sexual.” Director David Lambert is the same filmmaker behind the revered 2012 romantic drama Beyond the Walls.

Longhorns

2011, United States

The setting is a Texas college circa 1982. Here, men are men, women are just future wives (or current sluts), and there is nothing gay about helping a buddy get off! Good ol’ fratboy Kevin (Jacob Newton) is straight as an arrow (if you don’t count his gay fantasies – or the fact that he loves jerking off his fellow frat brothers) but he begins to see things a little differently when he meets the sexy, openly gay César (Derek Villanueva). Can a straight guy fall for another dude? And can Kevin continue going down on his pals under the belief that it’s just frat boy hijinks? And will kissing César change him forever? Never has a film featured so many straight men doing so many gay things! Beer is guzzled, pants are dropped and playful bed-hopping ensues. Fast, funny and sexy – what more could you want from a film?

Out This Week: Cas

TLA Releasing presents a collection of three films that examine the different effects the addition of a third party has on a modern gay relationship. Essentially, it’s a threesome about threesomes – and we’re excited for it. At 50 minutes in length, Cas, the headliner of this collection which doubles as the title for the collection in general, is somewhere between a short and a feature. Filmed in the Netherlands, it won the “Best International Feature” Award at FilmOut San Diego in 2017.

 

In Cas, the seemingly rock-solid relationship shared by 29-year-old Pepijn (Wieger Windhorst) and 33-year-old Sjors (Kevin Hassing) is put in jeopardy when they invite a lively 20-year-old student named Cas (Felix Meyer) to sleep on their couch until he finds a place of his own. Gradually, as Pepijn and Sjors both fall head over heels in love with Cas’ laconic charms, they are forced to reconsider all of their shared future plans. Is Cas a real threat to their relationship… or might he be a blessing in disguise?

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).
