    I don't watch soaps, but I saw this post the other day on Towleroad and was surprised no one posted about it here -- Luke and Noah, the young gay couple -- the only gay male couple on daytime TV, FINALLY had sex. They're a cute couple, and worth some discussion.

    Here's the thread: http://www.towleroad.com/2009/01/luke-and-noah-d.html


    Here's a clip:

    Yeah, I saw it when it happened. FINALLY. It was admirable that they did not made it a big deal when it happened though, and the scene was actually quite sweet, romantic and nicely done. I did not expect them to show the guys naked in bed anyway, so I'm glad they kept it tasteful.

    I'm going to be sick. Not from the two guys kissing. That didn't bother me. It was the acting and the script....*chunks go flying*

    This isn't much comfort, but the script and the acting for this gay couple storyline is actually on a much higher level than almost everything else that's happening in the soap.

    I agree with Bake... even if the end of this clip made me tear up - with Lucinda.

    I watched ATWT religiously every summer growing up (before DVRs) and somehow I remember the writing being so much better...

    Nice to see a real gay couple though on a soap. Even if their storyline moved along at lightning speed... sort of like how kids on soaps go away to school in the fall and come back as 21 year old studs in the spring.

    Hahaha sorry dude I only made it to the part where they were like let's go upstairs. I couldn't take any more of the cornyness. I thought Smallville was trash but then I found ATWT.

    Yeah i've watched this on that youtube channel. I prefer to watch that youtube channel because it's edited just to show Luke and Noah parts... I don't care for the other storylines haha!

    That other guy Casey is cute too!

    I think it was cute. Cheesy, poorly acted, but that's what soaps are all about. I think it was well handled and not any sillier than any of the straight story arcs I've seen over the years.

    THEY DIDN'T HAVE SEX ON TV!

    For all we know they went in there to play Monopoly, got hot and took their shirts off. I thought we'd at least see them in bed... find out who's the top and who's the bottom.


    *sigh* what can you except though... there probably would have been huge protests lol

    Whether they showed themselves sodomizing each other or not, two things are for sure in the end: they both die and burn in hell!!! Sick faggots!!! icon_twisted.gif

    I've seen ATWT for since law school. Its a soap, but I have to commend them for the guts for the storyline. I was glad to see it come around.

    Yeah there would have been huge protests, who says all gay guys play by the top or bottom rule? Or that gay guys have sex by penetrating each other anally?

    I'm glad they left up the "sex" to the imagination of the viewer.
