The Daily Beast praised a new TV show Sunday for featuring an explicit, gay sex scene with two Muslim men.

The Daily Beast article, “American Gods’ Just Aired TV’s Most Explicit Gay Sex Scene Ever,” fawned over the graphic depictions of gay sex, penises and oral sex in American Gods, calling it “incredibly sexy” “erotic” and “meaningful.”

“It’s incredibly sexy. And, yes, every second of it is important, down to the part where one guy ejaculates flames into the other,” Kevin Fallon writes.

Fallon then delves into describing the sex scene, praising the show for featuring gay sex in an erotic, intimate way.

“Salim starts performing oral sex on the Ifrit, but he wants to kiss on the lips first. Then the thing you almost never see starts: Two naked men start making out on a bed. You see their penises; there is no clever or artful attempt to disguise them. As they roll around, you see the men as you would if you were in the room,” Fallon describes.

Fallon declares that the gay sex scene is a “hallmark” moment because gay sex is not shown in the same way straight sex is.

“That perhaps makes the greatest case that, while it’s fun and all to see hot celebrities naked and having sex, these scenes can also be educational. It’s an example of why more of these scenes are needed to help normalize gay sex,” Fallon writes. “There is power in seeing yourself on TV. In seeing the possibility of pleasure. In seeing pleasure without shame. In seeing four minutes of two men having graphic gay sex on a show called American Gods.”

The AV Club also praised American Gods for the “intense, honest eroticism” in its gay sex scene.

“Their love scene is faithfully, lovingly adapted from the novel. What surprised me wasn’t the intense, honest eroticism, though that is rare enough on television, or the fantastic interlude in which Salim is transported to a desert and filled with the jinn’s fire,” Emily L. Stephens wrote.
