Furious couplings between gorgeous men include an exhilaratingly explicit play-within-a-play.

Summer Sizzle: 30 Gay Movies – Now Available On-Demand – That Turn Up The Heat!

As temperatures rise outside, we got to thinking about our favorite sweaty, beach-side, summertime-based gay movies. Below, you’ll find THIRTY different flicks available RIGHT NOW on-demand to put you in a seasonal mood! The genres may be varied, but all of these films do a great job turning up the heat (draw the shades and adjust your A/C accordingly).

 

Aya Arcos
Fabio (Daniel Passi) is a 21-year-old hustler working the hot streets of Rio when he meets Edu (Cesar Augusto), a successful author. They soon embark on a passionate and wild relationship. But while Fabio is sexually adventurous and carefree, Edu is far more protective. With several demons from his past that he has yet to face, Edu finds emotional connections difficult to maintain. The pair must try to navigate a path together – can they really live for the moment or will the realities of life crush them completely? An official selection at the Montreal World Film Festival and the Torino Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, Aya Arcos infuses its troubled May-December relationship with serious sexual intensity.

 

Bromance
When four friends go on a camping trip in a remote part of Argentina, sexual tensions quickly bubble to the surface. Once in virtual seclusion by the beach, the line between friendship and love begins to fade for two of the boys in particular as their desire becomes too much to bear. When what started as a simple getaway quickly becomes tinged with sex, romance and conflict, everyone is forced to confront who they really are for the very first time. Starring Javier De Pietro, the scrumptious star of Absent and Sexual Tension: Volatile, Bromance uses a clever found-footage aesthetic to deliver a thoughtful and supremely sexy meditation on young, burgeoning gay love.

 

Deleted Scenes
Deleted Scenes tells a tale of love, passion and dysfunction. When 30-something Sean (Michael Vaccaro) meets Eastern European immigrant Wolf (Ivica Kovacevic), the sparks quickly fly. They return to Sean’s apartment to begin a high energy affair. What starts as a mere chance meeting slowly evolves into something more. Wolf is easy going, turning tricks to supplement his living, while Sean is needy, talkative and neurotic. Creating a stable relationship is fraught with problems. With Wolf disappearing for hours at a time and Sean doing drugs, the two of them seem to be headed down a path of destruction. Director Todd Verow (see Goodbye Seventies below) pushes the envelope with this edgy drama.

 

Dry Wind
A gloriously erotic film from Brazilian director Daniel Nolasco, Dry Wind follows factory worker Sandro (Leandro Faria Lelo) as he escapes his rural boredom via secret trysts with his co-worker Ricardo (Allan Jacinto Santana) and through elaborate sexual fantasies. Though his sex life is in full swing, Sandro shies away from emotional attachment, preferring to imagine worlds of anonymity, leather and unbridled fetish-play – brought to stunning life in color-drenched widescreen glory. When a new arrival to town (Rafael Teóphilo) – a certified hunk straight out of Sandro’s dreams – sets his sights on Ricardo, Sandro finds himself brimming with jealousy and fearing exclusion from a romance he never thought he wanted.

 

Everything I Like
Daniel (Milton Roses), is an editor at a production company. When Javier (Esteban Masturini), a new cameraman, joins the crew, it upends Daniel’s life in ways he never expected. Though he’s always considered himself straight, Daniel begins to develop feelings for the alluring Javier. Encouraged by his closest friends to finally come out of the closet, Daniel isn’t sure he’s ready. Once he admits to his bisexuality, he enters the world of online dating, embarking on an uncomfortable, often embarrassing and deeply funny journey through a new world of potential partners. All the while, however, he’s looking to work up the courage to tell Javier how he really feels… and get over his fear of being naked in front of another person!

 

Fireflies
Ramin (Arash Marandi), an Iranian refugee living in Mexico, is trying to come to terms with his past – one that has left permanent scars on his body and soul. As he strolls through the port of Veracruz – a place where transient souls collide in search of a better life – the haunting memories of his long-distance lover begin to fill his heart with a profound sense of loneliness and repentance. Ramin’s friendship with Leti (Flor Eduarda Gurrola), the young woman who runs his hotel and teaches him Spanish, and an attraction to ex-con Guillermo (Luis Alberti) help him find himself as a gay man in a new home. Written and directed by Iranian-born Mexico City resident Bani Khoshnoudi, Fireflies is beautifully shot and strikingly naturalistic.

 

Fulboy
On the verge of achieving his dream career, Tomas allows his older brother Marti­n an inside look at his life as a professional soccer player. Marti­n, never able to fulfill his own dream of playing professionally, steps into this world through the lens of his camera. The rest of the club has opinions. Some view Marti­n as an intruder, as he exposes their most vulnerable (and literally naked) moments. Fulboy offers an uncensored, confessional look at how the athletes behind the most popular sport in the world behave during their time off the field. At the same time, Fulboy reflexively interrogates the director’s aesthetic choices and longing gazes at the male form. Who could blame us, though? These guys are gorgeous!

 

Goodbye Seventies
Set in the 1970s, the golden age of gay pornography in New York City, this new film from provocative cult director Todd Verow is guaranteed to stimulate gay cinema and gay porn fans in equal measure. Goodbye Seventies follows a promising young chorus boy who is injured and told he will never dance again. Distraught and unimpressed with the “art” films playing seedy Times Square theaters, he gets his friends and lovers together and they start making their own hardcore movies. Against all odds, the films are wildly successful… until drugs, AIDS and cheap video technology bring it all crashing down. We’ve always been big fans of Verow’s work, but this sexy – and sexually explicit – new treat is one of our favorites yet.

 

Hawaii
Sexual tension almost spills off the screen in this sweaty, titillating romance from award-winning director Marco Berger (Young Hunter, The Blonde One). Hawaii follows Martin and Eugenio (Manuel Vignau and Mateo Chiarino), two former childhood friends who reunite during a hot summer in the Argentinean countryside. As they work together to restore Eugenio’s summer home, a game of power and desire ensues – and soon the two buddies must grapple with their sexual attraction and reconsider their relationship. With gorgeous cinematography, a lush setting and compelling lead performances, Hawaii is an intimate character study and a slow-burn romance that sizzles from start to finish.

 

He Loves Me
Director Konstantinos Menelaou‘s sexually explicit relationship drama He Loves Me is an exploration of the unconventional nature of love and its ability to survive against the fear of loneliness, psychological traumas and the problems that come with life in the big city. The collapsing relationship shared by two men finds an outlet for escape on an isolated beach. Once there, they feel free to expose their deepest emotions. Their wounded relationship might not survive the vacation, but it’s certainly a glorious place to feel things out. Super-sexy lead actors Sanuye Shoteka and Hermes Pittakos were a real-life couple at the time that He Loves Me was shot – and the script was greatly influenced by their relationship.

 

Hooked
Jack (Conor Donnally) is an eighteen-year-old escort for both men and women. He is abrasive, loud and immature, but also deeply vulnerable. His boyfriend Tom (Sean Ormond) is an aspiring photographer on the run from his unaccepting father. Together, Jack and Tom live in a public dorm setting as they plan a future where they can live freely and extravagantly. When an older, closeted and married gentleman named Ken (Terrance Murphy) meets Jack and whisks him away on a weekend trip to Miami, the possibilities of Jack and Tom’s relationship are tested in new and extreme ways. Can Jack keep it together long enough to make a fresh start? Or will the darkness swallow him whole?

 

I Am Happiness on Earth
Julián Hernández, one of Mexico’s premier LGBTQ filmmakers (Raging Sun, Raging Sky), helmed this tale of a film director struggling with the line between his sexually-charged reality and his own equally-arousing cinematic creations. Will lead character Emiliano (Hugo Catalan) be able to sustain his relationship, or will his lust for beauty and meaning lead him elsewhere? Furious couplings between gorgeous men include an exhilaratingly explicit play-within-a-play. Hernández’s boldly poetic romance compares with such films as Fellini’s , Godard’s Contempt and others exploring the connections between love, sex, creativity and filmmaking.

 

I Want Your Love

Expanded to feature length from an award-winning 2010 short film of the same name, I Want Your Love features graphic, unsimulated sex scenes. Viewer discretion is advised (as is the case for a lot of films on this list, to be honest).

Kill the Monsters

From here, the highs and lows of the trio’s journey mirror key points in United States history – from hot sex in their luxurious New York City apartment through a road trip that results in a civil war and possible breakup to an all-out poker war involving scheming, sophisticated, and calculating German and Russian lesbians. Kill the Monsters is a sexy, funny and clever black and white indie gem you won’t want to miss!
