Daytime soaps took another step forward in representing the gay and lesbian community when Kyle and Fish finally had sex. The show presented two couples having sex today - heterosexual Gigi and Schuyler and "Kish" - and it was interesting to see how they both were played similarly. There haven't been that many gay sex scenes in soap history to make much of a comparison but it's been obvious to everyone that same sex couples do not the over the top desk/elevator sex their straight counterparts have regularly.
The Luke and Noah ("Nuke") sex scene in January of this year comes to mind as an obvious comparison of the progress we've made. In that case, the characters were shirtless but were never shown in bed together. Today, we saw Kyle and Fish snuggling in bed in the afterglow. Way to go, ONE LIFE TO LIVE, for taking that next step!
