Have gay films taken a more "liberated" stand on these and other sexual matters? Until the 1990s, most films with gay characters or themes were made by straight folks – often straight folks with an anti-gay agenda or at least a stereotypical approach to their characters.
But the more recent gay-helmed and gay-written films have probably been more open than straight movies to unconventional sexuality. It's hard to imagine a heterosexual version of the 1999 romantic comedy Trick, which tells the story of two young men who pick each other up and spend the night looking for a place to have sex (and end up falling in love, natch).
And there have been few movies, gay or straight, that have embraced as carefree a sexual ethic as Shortbus (2006), which shows people having actual sex ... lots and lots of actual sex. Problem is, the movie doesn't really have a plot, so it's arguable that it's more of a "film experiment" than a "movie" per se.
