God's Own Country Director Francis Lee On the Importance of Portraying Frank Sex Onscreen

Francis Lee will assure you that he had no other gay movies in mind when conceiving God’s Own Country, the film about two male farmers in Yorkshire who fall in love—not even Brokeback Mountain, which it’s been widely (and affectionately) compared to.

A Conversation with Alissa Nutting on Intimacy, Florida, and Dolphins 

Alissa Nutting’s wildly comedic Made for Love is a novel about many fetishes. It’s a book of a 76-year-old father’s obsession with a “life-size woman doll [...] the kind designed to provide a sexual experience”; as well as one about Jasper, a sexy, Jesus-looking con man who repents after a satisfying sexual encounter…
