I think Jesus deserves some credit for doing the photoshoot considering the way that football distances itself from all things gay and the homophobic views of some in football. Juventus director Luciano Moggi was quoted as saying that "there are no gays in football, I don’t know if players are against having them in their team but I definitely am... A homosexual cannot do the job of a footballer. The football world is not designed for them, it’s a special atmosphere, one in which you stand naked under the showers". Now what's the word I am searching for...? I know, it's bigot!
Depending on which site you look at, it appears that being gay in Italy is frowned upon everywhere except the cities and even then, local politicians regularly get away with anti-gay slurs. I suppose that's a common thing across the world.
I do believe that Fernando Torres and other footballers should follow Mr Datolo's fine example. There are plenty of men who should consider modelling - take a look at this blog entry by Roomlovely for proof!
Something else I saw online that made me laugh... A Canadian professor wanted to carry out some research into pornography and needed to find men in their 20's that had never "utilised" porn - but surprise surprise, he struggled to complete his work. Professor Lajeunesse said:"The objective of my work is to observe the impact of pornography on the sexuality of men, and how it shapes their perception of men and women. We started our research seeking men in their twenties who had never consumed pornography but we couldn't find any."
All he found out was that single men spent about 40 minutes viewing porn three times a week while men in committed relationships averaged 20 minute porn viewing sessions 1.7 times a week. Such shocking statistics! Who'd have guessed it?!
