Unlike other Childhood Crushes on men like Davy, Bobby Sherman, Bobby Benson, the Cassidy brothers, Jimmy Connors, Borge, Chrissie, Parker Stevenson, Rod Taylor and more, Logan's Run opened my mind as to were and how to have gay sex. After seeing it again, TMC had in on commercial free and unedited, I thought that the special effects held up very well and that it provided much insight into how and where I'd be getting my sex.
The film was released in 1976 and I mush have begged my parents to drag me to the not so local showing of this move. On it's surface, it's a cops (know as sand men) chasing the bag guys (the runners)movie. Peolple have a life clock in the palm off their left hand and when they turn 30 they must go to carousel to renew/die. If they don't they become runners.
I love the colorful, clinging, revealing clothes that are flowing and color coded by your zodiac sign. Life is all fun, no stress and apparently no disease. The design, architecture and special effects hold up really well for the most part, some other effects not so much.
After Carousel, Logan returns to his room and cruises the Circuit. The first to materialize, is a handsome shirtless man who shoots Logon a "cum fuck me look' (DING!!) Logon moves on to the next chat room. He chooses Jessica who's dress is opened on the side with no bra or panties - Parents are getting nervous.
He takes her to the couch and they begin making out but she say PLEASE, NO, Please. He asked if she likes women (DING!!) just then his friend and fellow Sandman comes in with 2 girls, throws a ball at the ceiling which releases party enhancers activated the orgy begins. (DING!!)
The next day the computer makes Logan a runner ih hopes that he'll find Sancuary - so her Run and Jessica helps him. He friend/partner Francis (I never liked him) starts chasing him because he's a runner and because Jessica is a bad influence on him. (is this more than a bromance for Francis?)
Logan used a hand held device with GPS which also displays the runner's picture to locate the runner. Today we call it Grindr.
Logon goes for some plastic surgery with a fresh, young, beautiful, pre Charlie's Angels, Farrah Fawcett. When that goes bad they escape into the LOVE Shop! It's a Love Shop! It's a BathHouse with Amyl filling the air, a dark maze filled with hands and SEX! STRAIGHT SEX! GAYSEX! LOTS OF SEX!!
|So fresh and pretty.|
Lastly we are treated to skinny dipping once they finally make it outside. The film changes pace, slows down and has weak ending but I have learned my lesson on where to go and how to have gay sex, at least in the 1970's.
