Over on AZBlogX, a long and fairly intricate posting about the gay porn flick Like Father, Like Son (LFLS), which came up as the focus of the Titan Cyber Monday sale. There are 19 images in the posting, all of them except the first (the image in the ad) unquestionably X-rated, so that posting is not for the kiddies or the sexually modest. (I’ll look at the first image below.) There are occasional flickers of linguistic interest, but they are scarcely the point.
The theme of the flick is intergenerational sex between men, centering on two young men who are best buddies and also sex partners, and on their fathers. The sons seek sex with older men as well as with one another, and they contrive to arrange things so that each will have sex with the other’s father, thus satisfying their desires while avoiding the incest taboo: I won’t do my dad (that would be icky), but I’ll do yours, bro (that would be hot hot hot). This sets up a complex symmetry of a sort worthy of comic opera, with the additional wrinkle that all the characters are randy gay men (with, of course, monumentally huge penises, which the sons inherited from their fathers), so everyone wants to have sex with everyone else, except for the father-son pairings.
