Brokeback Mountain hooplah

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I'll stick my neck out here...

I keep hearing guys refer to this movie-- in passing conversation, on the news, on the radio. One conversation on the radio (Glenn Beck show) revolved around whether a guy would fool around with another guy for money and one guy's response was not unless it involved an eight figure pay off. To save your brain a moment of thought, that's at least ten million dollars.

Maybe I'm cheap, but...

So, I launch an informal poll and apologize if I am crossing into unwelcome territory. I really am just curious.

So, gay for pay? If so, what would it take?

Some hold prudence as a virtue where others hold prudence as a girlfriend.


I found this thread on the penguin thread. You might ask the poster this thread:

Why stop at mere men, when others are warming to penguins?

It's the protests that get me. Such disgust, much from guys who fall all over themselves for girls gone wild.

Just wondering what's going on there. Don't infer anything just because someone asks a question.

Anyway, I prefer poultry.

Protests??

Wow. That sounds very extreme, or maybe a bit more like reality t.v.....

Your father is a turkey and your mother is a cornish game hen!

So there!

Then why wasn't I informed!! Social Services could at least have let me know. All this time, I've been masquerading as a human. I knew it. We is ducks!

Actually, no man knows his father except whom mother says it is......


Take a bow Rick! Although on this thread, that might be a dangerous thing.........

Have a good night

Check out his other stuff - I've only discovered what a great producer he is, albeit provocative especially in his own country. His Wedding Banquet Series, Eat Man Drink Woman are utterly humourous.

I've got enough money, thankyouverymuch. There's not many things I'd do for money that I wouldn't do otherwise. Now, would I make out with a guy for an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict, that's a tough one.

That would really make President Bush happy. Gosh. Two happy men then - no beating around the bush there.

Alternatively, Ariel Sharon could possibly be attractive in traditional costume although I don't think he'll take to Ang Lee's satirical style. Global solutions for all on Apple Outsider Forums..

For me it would depend on:

the sum in question
how broke I was
the guy in question.

Let's be pragmatic. I'd consider second base, perhaps, with someone young and attractive before an old man with, say, bad teeth, a big belly, poor hygiene, or similar. Or if I had to pay for, say, a hip operation, or a new PowerBook, or something.

[Obligatory heterosexual disclaimer: I speak as someone with no personal physical experience in matters gay. And I don't think I could let anyone near my prostate, if you get my drift. Although all of a sudden I see the need for the Tension Relief Clinic.]

I am perturbed that my last post seems to have finished this thread.

Well I'm not gay, like that gay guy Hassan i [hump men] Sabbah, but I would do it for eight figures or maybe even mid sevens at least if we want to put it in terms of being the fucker rather than the fuckee. I'd be buying back decades of future time that would have to be spent working in exchange for one hour of bletch. It's worth it.

Yeah, being the "giver" rather than the "reciever" is a very important element of this.

I'd think that would depend heavily on which sex act you're talking about. I'd rather be the giver on one I can think of, but the receiver on another.

OK, with that post, I think this thread has officially jumped the shark.

Well, I was assuming sodomy, but for fellatio, I'd rather be on the recieving end.

I think that the typical person would have to jump up to a new level of luxury lifestyle.

So, for example, most people would do it to go from starving to middle class, or from $10,000,000 to $100,000,000 (because if you have $10M you can't fly charter jets, while you can with $100M).

Mmm, no, I'd settle for £1,000,000.

If your net worth is 10K to 100K, then that would fit my pattern above. If not, you are just a little gayer than my pattern predicts 8)

I wouldn't receive it if you know what I mean, but for a year's salary for free, I might do the basics. People around here are claiming $10 million or something like that. I think a lot would do it for just 6 months paid vacation anywhere in the U.S. with full food and drinks for them and their friends (just don't tell the friends why it's free).

when this movie was announced, was anyone else reminded of the south park episode, like the second or third season maybe... where the film festval comes to south park, and the movie that gets all the attention (and gets stan tricked into seeing) was of gay cowboys or something?

I have a question for you in just as bad of taste:

What role do I play for said cash?


This is mostly rhetorical as I am not a whore like that and also not gay...

It wouldn't involve sex. So was the original debate, at least...
