Transcript PAGE 8 GAY GADFLY A new sophistication. There can be no question that the phrase is complimentary. In the context of what are irreverently referred to as "cock danglers," itis deserved --to a degree. There is color, which serves to highlight the flesh tones of the danglers, both black and white. And no longer is precious film footage wasted on said danglers' doffing their clothing and getting down to basic essentials. Even the sound is sometimes synchronized with the lips. And what comes out con veys the impression that it is contained in a script. A fairly recent example of new sophistication in filming of danglers was something called Come of Age. Even that title appealed to something above the belly-button. Not like those numerous other epics which are little more than plays or ploys upon words. The Magnificent Cowboys, for example, probably owes a credit to Midnight Cowboy. But to get back to Come of Age. To have filmed it without color would have been criminal. What the four guys had to say to and about, came across credibly. And, as for what is still--euphu- istically or euphemistically, loser's choice—referred to as "male action," better more than not enough. But what Come of Age had and your hostesses Ricci & Rita R0ABIB6 60'S €MJB POOl - DANCING • MIXED DRINKS Open Tuesday through Sunday 5pm - 2a* (Closed ftondays) 2305 S. SHEPHERD J®__ 521 9430 most cock danglers do not, was abelievable story line and intelligently motivated sex-exceptinthe group scenes. Now I realize that mine is like a "voice of one crying in the wildneress." So 1 should not be surprised to learn that the Mini- Park's business during the week's showing of Come of Age fell off considerably. And there will always be a segment of the gay community which will depend for its jolies on hard-core films. But I should like to suggest several ideas which more responsible members of the gay community might find worthy of their consideration. First of all, the cinematic sequence of sex acts between two male animals is just about as formal and mannered as a Mardi Gras ball. And after a while, as monotonous- -except that Mardi Gras occurs only once a year. The fact that the human face most often need not even be filmed and below-the-belt areas are zoomed in upon vindicates the above use of animals. Then there is the other and more important aspect of group or community responsibility. To the degree that the gay community is being accorded those rights which each member of that community can always have legitimately claimed for himself; to that degree each one of those members must be willing to sacrifice himself for the community as a whole. Yes, I mean self-sacrifice: a willingness to see in fellow gays something far more important and lasting than bodies upon which one can groove for minutes or hours or daysthatmustalwaysend--very often in sheer frustration and frequently in a hunger for both body and soul that, seemingly, can never be satisfied. A sure sign of that maturity of which the straight community has claimed that gays are incapable, is to live for others as well as for oneself. YOU DON'T EAT YOUR MEAT IN THE MARKET WHERE YOU BUY IT; WHY HAVE YOUR SEX IN THE BAR WHERE YOU FIND IT????? by Jim Archer Houston gay bars are licensed to run a good, clean business. Nudity and sexual activity have been observed at some bars here recently. The owners and managers of these bars and businesses are responsible for permitting such lewd, loose carrying-on. Such lewdness and recklessness will result eventually in a vice crackdown on everyone -- respectable bars as well as not-so-respectable ones. Management of the places where open sex activity is permitted has best for the betterment of all police their businesses more closely. The NUNTIUS does not see at this time the necessity in printing correspondence with the names of places where such actions take place. Keep it clean, men! We don't want a vice-crackdown on bars in Houston such as is the sad "no-touchy". 0m« toffy 10m 1504 Westheimer KEG PARTY SUNDAYS 5-7 ($100)
