“I wanna show different flavors of gay sex other than ‘Queer As Folk’ porny whatever.”

Ryan O’Connell is a gay man with cerebral palsy—he is also the writer, creator, and star of the new Netflix original series, Special—which debuts April 12.

The trailer for the show dropped this week, and in addition to introducing viewers to Ryan, it also shows that audiences better prepare to see some gay sex scenes, something that O’Connell doesn’t think moviegoers see enough of.

“I am so frustrated by the lack of representation of gay sex in TV and film, like in Call Me by Your Name when they panned away to the moon,” O’Connell told Vulture’s Maria Elena Fernandez. “I was like, ’Are you fucking kidding me? This movie has more straight sex and more fruit sex than actual gay sex.’ You’re blue-balling us the entire film, and then they fuck and you turn away? Go fuck yourself. Like, seriously. That enraged me.”

The Special star (who is also a writer on Will & Grace) said when making the series he had a “very clear image” of what he wanted the sex scenes to look like, and how he wanted to “bring gay sex to the forefront in a very accurate, human way… there wasn’t gonna be no panning away to the fuckin’ moon! We were gonna see how gay sex is done. I wanted it to feel real,” he explains.

If that wasn’t enough of a reason to tune in when the series drops, O’Connell promises even more gay sex if the show was to get a second season: “It will all have to serve the story, but I wanna normalize gay sex, and I wanna show different flavors of gay sex other than Queer As Folk porny whatever. I think it’s what fucks gay men up. We’ve been so hyper-sexualized, and it’s just assumed that we fuck like rabbits. It’s also a really intense, emotional thing for us too.”

Judging from the trailer it looks like we will get some hookup scenes with Brian Jordan Alvarez (Will & Grace) and Augustus Prew (Pure Genius). This just rose to the top of our “must-watch” list.
