The History of Gay Porn, Feat. The History of Gay Sex

Today’s showcase episode traces the evolution of obscenity laws and the struggles of a community to obtain the kind of sex-positive, identity-affirming erotic material that most of us today of all orientations pretty much take for granted. Well, it wasn’t always that way, especially for gays. In fact, it was a long and tumultuous road, involving some deliciously back-alley twists and turns. Stuart of The History of Gay Sex will tell you all about it.
