This Fight Has Been Rated NC-17 (Or, File Under: Demography)
I've recently discovered something on Showtime called EliteXC Xtreme Combat. I hardly ever watch it more than ten minutes at a time...usually just the intros showing various shirtless "fighters" all oiled up and ready for bruising.
I usually get bored...and hardly ever make it to an actual fight before I change the channel.
I assumed these fights were just boxing matches with a few kicks and marital arts moves thrown in.
However, earlier this week, I caught the show mid-fight...and was astonished. Above and below are some scenes from the "fight" I watched - which is pretty much a scenario from a Colt Studio production...with shorts and gloves on.
These two fighters never left the mat - they were entangled in the missionary position for a good twenty five minutes in various configurations and, um, roles.
I was titillated enough to take these screen captures...but couldn't help thinking...is this supposed to be for straight guys?
I would qualify this entry as being "not quite safe for work viewing"...but the two fighters here are sort-of clothed...and Showtime didn't air any "scenes in this fight might be overwhelmingly homoerotic" disclaimer...so I won't either.
