Torchwood Gay Sex vs Violence

During the last ten weeks, Torchwood has been back on our screens and we’ve been following the adventures, trials and tribulations of Captain Jack Harkness.

And due to his 51st century omnisexuality, the good Captain has received a few complaints regarding his sexual encounters during Miracle Day.

In a couple of episodes of the new series, Jack is shown during some steamy encounters with a couple of different men. Yes, there’s nudity and yes, there are two men romping away but it’s nothing scary and it also fits integrally to the plot.

However some viewers apparently decided to get all bent out of shape regarding these scenes and complain about them being included.

It seems funny that in this day and age some people still can’t get their heads around the fact that two people of the same sex might find each other attractive, and then feel the need to complain about having to watch the results of this attraction. In some cases and at some times of the day this is fair enough, but you can only wonder what they thought they might see when they tuned into a post-watershed show regarding a time travelling, immortal adventurer from the future that will shag anything that gives him a wink.

Actor Barrowman raised another good point:

“Nobody complained that I was shot in the head four times, there were burning people in ovens, that I was stabbed by a mob of 50 people hundreds of times and I was hanging dripping my blood in a pit.”

Some people just can’t get over little things in life.
