Gay Sex Scene Coming in 'Day of Our Lives'

Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis, the first two gay characters in the history of the NBC daytime soap Days of Our Lives, have been openly smooching in the Salem town square for weeks now.
On the episode of the show airing 14 November, they will finally makes love.
The two have been friends for more than a year but it was not until last month that they admitted their romantic feelings for each other. Since then, they have been busy cooing and kissing but have only been seen in public places.
'The Will and Sonny fans have waited a long time for this but the delay has been a good thing,' actor Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny, tells TV Guide. ''It's allowed the audience to get to know our characters and to get to a place where they are really rooting for them to get together. I don't expect anyone will think the sex scene is controversial. Hopefully, we're past that. This isn't a story about two gay guys. It's about two human beings who truly love each other.'
Smith says he and Chandler Massey, who plays Will, are getting used to playing an onscreen couple so the love scene did not faze them.
'Chandler and I were much more nervous about our first kissing scene,' he says. 'Our hearts were really pounding during that one but it worked out great because our characters' hearts were pounding, too. Since then Will and Sonny have done enough flirting and kissing and cuddling that, as actors, we weren't nervous about finally getting to the sex. The way we shot it is very real and passionate but tasteful. Chandler and I are comfortable with each other and it shows. We have good chemistry. We trust each other.’

Below is a preview of the big scene:

Soaps } Will Horton to come out on April 4!

 By Greg Hernandez  


Last night there was what sounded like a super event in Los Angeles with several members of the cast of Days of Our Lives.
The topic was Will Horton’s coming out story andChandler Massey (Will),Diedre Hall (Marlena) andAllison Sweeney (Sami) were among the cast members there to discuss it.
Sadly, I could not be there because going on at EXACTLY the same time over at the Beverly Hilton Hotel was The Advocate’s 45th Anniversary party and it was a star-studded affair I could not miss.
I will look for coverage of the Days event on some other sites and provide you some coverage that way.
But, I do have some little scoops for you! Sources tell me that Will, who this week told Marlena he didn’t really think he was gay after all, takes the big step and COMES OUT on the episode airing April 4.
I don’t know the exact circumstances but I do know that the character of Neil, the guy who Will made out with over two episodes last month, will be returning for at least three episodes. (Neil is played byJesse Kristofferson).
Hopefully, that means we will see some more of those liplocks!

Tuc Watkins among the “One Life to Live” cast members

 By Greg Hernandez Life to Live lives!!!
And best of all, it will live with the sexy and funny David Vickers who, of course, is played by the sexy and multi-talented Tuc Watkins.
ABC has canceled the long-running soap and will give it a sendoff in January. But like its former ABC soap sibling, All My Children, the show will resume production for The Online Network.
In addition to Watkins, who also plays one-half of the gay couple on Desperate Housewives, other cast members making the transition to online are five-time Emmy winnerErika Slezak (Victoria),  Kassie DePaiva(Blair Cramer), Josh Kelly (Cutter), Florencia Lozano (Tea), and Shenell Edmonds(Destiny).
More names are sure to be announced soon. I hope one of them will be the great Robin Strasser who has played Dorian Lord for about three decades. Not only is Miss Strasser delicious in the role, but she and Watkins enjoy an out of this world chemistry filled with sharp wit and humor.
With or without his Dorian, it’s a safe bet that David/Tuc will be shirtless plenty and that is a very good thing!

Friday Morning Man: Jay Ryan! pal Lorna Harris, one of the key people in helping me launch this blog nearly three years ago, is always filled with ideas for Morning Men.
Often I will take those ideas and run with them, but sometimes, I don’t. When I don’t, Lorna does not take it well!
But she will be happy to see that she and I are in total agreement over today’s selection: Jay Ryan who has guest-starred in the new hit series Terra Nova – as a murderer!
This handsome 30-year-old actor was born in New Zealand but resides in Australia where he is best known for his role of Jack Scully in the Australian soap opera Neighbours. He was on the show from 2002-2005.
More recently, Ryan has played Kevin in the New Zealand comedy/drama series Go Girlsand earlier this year, he joined the cast of the Australian comedy/drama series Offspring.
By the way, Ryan is not Jay’s real last name. That would be Bunyan. It was suggested he change his name early one because someone told him it sounded too much like “bunion.”
