“It’s been mentioned here countless times before, but I think For A Lost Soldier is the only major motion picture that fits the bill.”
I was thinking to myself while writing that post, that I know someone is going to mention at least one movie, that does fit fairly well…and FALS is an obvious one…though I’ve seen a few others mentioned, where this kind of relationship was more implied by the movie, and not explicitly shown, also.
There is one caveat I do have…and that being, that anal sex where a man penetrates a young boy [and yes, I know “young boy” is a bit more hazy, when we are really talking young teens], I feel is not a very accurate representation for what I have come to learn, as being statistically common for “pedophilia”.
…Why are us [would be] little boy cock suckers so neglected and under appreciated?! 😉
Seriously, though…As a personal and practical matter, I will never have anal sex…and absolutely not with a kid that young.
I am coming at this from the perspective of being an LBL, so this greatly effects my position…and I think anal sex when concerning young boys, is best left between similar age mates, if it comes up at all.
I’ve always felt like most people are oblivious to the fact, that our style of “pedophile” even exists…Yet, statistically, we are the overwhelming majority.
This is probably the only major way, in which I do not consider FALS to be a good representation of typical “pedophilia”…
…I generally give it leeway, regarding some of the other things it’s been knocked for [like the aggressive pursuit of Jerome, or the soldiers abrupt leaving]…because life isn’t a perfect fairy tale, nor was it meant to be…And I think people can honestly go well overboard, when deciding how perfectly constructed the world is supposed to be around children…as if they wont survive a few “rough n tumble”, sad or disappointing experiences.
…Of course…they will…and they do, all the time…
If it fit’s peoples ideas of a good social model, then they call it “building character”…or “making you stronger”.
I’ll generally concede the point, that there is a balanced and decent theme for man/boy love, in FALS…Or at the very least, this is about as close as we’ve come thus far, in getting “the perfect” account of a man/boy sexual love affair.
I forget the soldiers name…but he is very human, in this movie…The relationship, is very human…very mutually empathetic.
