    George Takei has received a lot of attention as the man who played Mr. Sulu on the original Star Trek, and recently come out publically. Furthermore, the new J. J. Abrams film series has decided to make the character Mr. Sulu have a same sex partner, which is really great.

    As a young man in the 1970s I had a bit of a crush on the Sulu character and I was never sure why. Perhaps living in the Midwest I had little exposure to Asian men.(In college I majored in Mathematics and Computer Science so I knew a lot of Asian men when I was about 20, and developed a bit of a fetish, but that’s another tale.)

    This week I say the first season episode “Naked Time” on DVD, in which the crew is infected with a disease that makes them behave as if intoxicated, and Mr. Sulu was running around shirtless, and glistening with sweet, chasing people with a fencing rapier. Obvious Freudian analysis aside, George Takei was really hot when he was young.

    Perhaps your gaydar was responding to his being gay. I met him and his husband a few years ago at a function in Fort Lauderdale. Obviously much, much older. But very pleasant & affable. And now heavily involved in gay issues.

    Not sure this qualifies as "really hot":

    But then again, look at the competition:

    George Takei has been unabashedly open about his attraction to men since the late 70s/early 80s.

    The first Star Trek film was JUST released in 1979 and I was with buds at Greg's Blue Dot", a very popular Los Angeles "gay" pub at the time. One of the buds walked up with Takei and introduced him all around. After a few minutes of chat, the others essentially ignored him.

    Film star or not, Asians do not seem to generate much positive attention in "gay" bars unless they have rugged looks and a big physique.

    I beleive you but it is surprising. Based on all the very specialized web sites and dvds, I've always assumed every ethnic group had a group of fetishists or followers.

    Is as you say, these are "fetish/sex-fantasy" sites. Brings out the worst in folk.

    I remember shirtless Sulu when it originally aired. I was just a kid but he immediately had my attention and I knew I wanted him.
