Sexy Gay Daddy Movies Netflix

Here in the US, summer's coming to a close, the nights are getting longer, and colder temperatures are creeping up fast. You know what that means—it's about to be snuggle season! Is there anything better than curling up on the couch with your boo (or a bucket of popcorn) and catching up on some well-deserved R&R in front of the boob tube? Too bad you've already seen every episode of "Duck Dynasty," and slogging through the thousands of movies on your Netflix queue for something that's actually good could take days. Luckily, we've done the work for you! If you've got Netflix, we've got five gay films for you to discover (or rediscover), each one highly entertaining and Daddy-approved. Happy viewing!

Bear City
As he comes to grips with his undeniable attraction to big, hairy men and adjusts to his new roomies, cute cub Tyler struggles to figure out his place within the tight-knit bear community, gain acceptance from his old friends, and find fuzzy love.

We Were Here
The AIDS crisis forever changed gay culture in San Francisco, as examined in this absorbing, award-winning documentary. Using vintage footage and first-person testimonials, director David Weissman (The Cockettes) explores the disease's impact on five individuals and how the city's inhabitants dealt with unprecedented calamity. A fascinating look at the power and strength of the LGBT community.

This frank drama centers on the cautious relationship between two gay men—one a lifeguard, the other a lusty art-gallery worker—who contemplate turning a passionate one-night stand into something more meaningful. Warning, you may become addicted to the sight of hunky lead actor Tom Cullen, whose sexy full-frontal scenes we're still recovering from.

Keep the Lights On
In this critically acclaimed indie flick, the physical romance between a gay filmmaker and an attorney soon evolves into a more complex relationship, laced with conflicting desires. Over several turbulent years, both men struggle to build a true acceptance of the other's strengths and flaws. Nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Film (Limited Release).

The Men Next Door
In this fast-paced comedy, a 40-year-old gay man finds himself dating two equally lovable men —one a secure 50-year-old who came out later in life, the other an adventurous 30-year-old who wasn't looking for a relationship. What he doesn't know is that the two men are, in fact, father and son. Talk about a family affair!

"You've got mail" ( )

I enjoyed all of them. Any Daddy fans in Minneapolis who would care to watch some more gay films, hit me up.

Could these choices be any more trite?

I particularly got a kick out of the overwrought reference to how AIDS shows the resilience of the LGBT community.

First of all, the "LGBT" joinder of terms that results in a gay man being in the same category as a transgendered anything is not a movement I'm signing onto. It's like putting black housewives in the same category as Hungarian bus drivers and calling it a movement.

Second, AIDS is a killer like cancer or any other terminal disease. It's sad and tragic, and wonderful people have been struck down, but it should not be used to define any universe of people other than those who suffer from it. I've never seen breast cancer being used to define all of womanhood.

As to the remainder of these movies, who's going to want to curl up and pop popcorn for any of them, much less have company over to watch them? How about manly movies that display manly heroism that everyone can understand, not just films favored by activists or a sexual preference minority. How about Dirty Dozen. Sergeant York. Spartacus. Or heck, even any of the Superman movies.

But a movie about a bear and his cub, or a medical condition, or whatever else made this list? Sorry, I don't want anyone anywhere at any time to associate me with any of these choices.

Hii.... Looking for good friendship.... If anybody.....

@GoNavy--it's entertainment not a political manifesto..

Seen them all and some are mediocre films in terms of entertainment value. The Men Next Door has some recoiling in disbelief at some--to borrow a term--'trite' "stereotypical" and caricature behaviors in some roles (yet not as trite as Logo). Beyond these lapses, the piece holds up as a farce and comedy of gaffs. Keep the Lights On--yes, because you'll never want to sleep with them off after viewing this romp through codependent chaos. Bear City is adorable [left my virility in San Francisco..]--teddy-ish, even. We Were Here spotlights San Francisco's TGBLA community and little else, or elsewhere, in focus on dealing and struggling to overcome HIV/AIDS epidemic--overcome? I suppose a handful of pills is overcoming? Even a brief comparison and spotlight on the elsewhere's without supportive community leaders and neighbors during the national apathy and government inaction, or worldwide apathy toward HIV infection's long reign throughout Africa, would have added the value I needed to 5-star this one. Weekend, pay attention to the nudity and gratuitous scenes, because this will divert your attention from silly questions like, what kind of plot is this?

I also recommend Weekend- beautifully crafted glimpse of the possibilities between two, very different, guys. The intimacy, sex and themes of unfulfilled desire and longing are very well done. I agree, Tom Cullen is gorgeous and, sadly, straight.
Most of my mates loved Keep the Light On. I couldn't relate to the characters and themes at all, so a big disappointment. My view is probably more revealing about my age!
We Were Here is a great documentary. A record of a terrible time and the magnificent response by SF gay men and lesbians -very moving. It brought back many memories of those I've loved and lost.
Keep an eye out for How to Survive a Plague and United in Anger. Two excellent documentaries on the Aids holocaust from an NYC perspective -the latter has a focus on ACT UP and its ferociously effective activism in the face of hate, ignorance and oppression.
Lastly, I recommend Joy. Literally a joyous study of Sister Mish (Missionary Position), one of the founders of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and her spiritual and community work. It also shows the seriousness and importance of the Sisters' work beyond all the camp and glitter.

How to Survive a Plague was the most powerful movie with gay subject matter I have seen in the past 2 or 3 years. I hardly think it's a popcorn movie to snuggle up with your "boo" to, but I still think it should've won an Academy Award. "Weekend" was refreshing in its low key approach, but so slight it barely registered or resonated once over. Most annoying depiction of (some) male/ male messing around (and god was it messy) goes to "On the Road", which was pretty dreadful considering its classic source material.

ok recommend the men next door for daddy lover, michael knicklin was so hot, is he gay in real life? the son was hot too but if i get to pick like in the show i go for the daddy too.
