Gay Sex Scene at Greece's Acropolis??

Supposedly a film showing two men having sex among a crowd of onlookers is causing a stir in Greece. Officials are investigating the "shameful" film saying that there were no permits for filming. Nor would one have been issued for anything that "would cause offense and displays disrespect for the monument."

So where's the film?

It was stolen by the British Museum

Greeks are historically anti-same sex.

That is since the Byzantine period.

Is nothing sacred? Next it will be St. Peter’s Basilica (aside fro the priests, I mean).

It's okay. If the Greek actors were attractive at the start of the day, they had aged out by the end of it.

That's what Greeks do. Twink-to-hairy-ass-granddads before your eyes.

Yet more porn as art bullshit.

Really? Given how often Europeans like to snark at us for being sex negative and backwards, I'd expect something like this to be fine over there.

The British Museum would never allow filming of debauchery in front of the Elgin Marbles.

It's a pagan ruin. It's not a church or a mosque. The sex scene was not particularly explicit and the film is completely artless. It's only a sensation because it's a deliberate provocation by far left studenty nutjobs aimed at right wing nationalistic nutjobs.

it's perfectly appropriate for Ancient Greece, I'm not sure why they're so upset

This is disgusting

I thought these 'sacred' places were for people to congregate and have sex in the past.

Do the actors "do Greek"?

The Greeks didn't equate the philopaides (pederasts) and the kinadoi ("faggots"), the first they considered relatively normal, particularly if that person didn't go further than contemplativeness, when they went further than touching that wasn't considered much acceptable (and could be a crime), but obviously many rich men and women could do as they please with lowly children, just as there were hetairai (female prostitutes) there were also children being sold by their parents or engaging themselves in that, both women and children were under the supervision of a police force particularly designed to suppress prostitution, which shows that adult male prostitutes weren't particularly popular, but they certainly existed (though most probably used mainly by rich women). But the latter, the kinadoi, were considered monstrous and dangerous, one such example of this fact is Plato's Gorgias. Socrates isn't only humorous, he's also willing to be indecorous, and as his adversary is maintaining that pleasure is the highest good, Socrates retorts that if that was true then being a kinaidos would be the "climax", that's like nowadays saying the n-word to prove a point. His opponent reacts with disgust, and shames Socrates for bringing such things up, and attempts to say that's "something different", which Socrates knows isn't true.

R10 Actually the Parthenon has been both a church and a mosque, under the different polities that occupied Attica, it went from an Greek Orthodox church, to a Roman Catholic, back to Greek Orthodox, and finally an Islamic mosque. The place also served as one of the garrisons of the city, which was quite defensible, when Rainerio Acciaioli laid siege to the city with the help of the Navarrese, the Catalan garrison resisted for three years in the Acropolis. The term Parthenon comes from parthenos which means virgin, the Greeks dedicated it to Athens, and both the Greek Orthodox and the Roman Catholics dedicated it to the Virgin Mary. Those who did this video called it "de-virginization", by which they obviously meant an attack (by way of rape) not only on the concrete place, but of the whole nation, which is anything but intelligent. And seeing how many neo-nazis there are in Greece, most probably they are already booking a plane to Berlin or any other degenerate scumhole.

The Parthenon was sacred to Athena Parthenos, the most important goddess to the city, and you were not supposed to have sex there or you would defile the temple.

But even regardless of the practices of ancient religions, the Greeks and Italians both have HUGE legal strictures against exposing yourself at any and all ancient archaeological sites. For some reason, vacationing Brits, in particular, love taking photos of themselves exposing their butts or breasts or genitals in front of ancient archaeological sites when they get drunk (which is all the time when they're on holiday), and they always get arrested for it and have heavy fines levied against them, and then they complain bitterly. But I have zero sympathy. You don't have a human right to treat other people's heritage sites disrespectfully.

These are Greek leftists, probably students. The reasoning for the act is clear when you read their screed against "patriarchy, "heteronormativity" and on and on with all the usual ideological cliches and obsessions.. It was a political provocation. A moderately amusing one, albeit executed artlessly. The outraged reaction was both expected and wanted. So no crying is required.

I'm trying to fast forward through this bad 36 minute long film for the good bits … … … …

Only in Greece.

I suggest they try this in the Hagia Sophia.

I see no Gay Sex Scene at Acropolis.

I see some fumbling in a basement lavatory.

Has anyone got the screen caps of the so-called sex scene?

by Anonymousreply 24January 13, 2022 12:12 AM

It's just two disembodied waistlines thrusting, a bit of bare skin shown from the side. Someone is being penetrated from behind, but it's very, very tame. You could almost show it on TV.

The only shameful thing is how exceeding boring the sex scenes are. What a waste of a backdrop.

by Anonymousreply 27January 13, 2022 9:26 AM

Was it a Bel Ami or Kristen Bjorn production filming?

by Anonymousreply 28January 13, 2022 10:26 AM

As if either would be that creative.
