“I’m very secure of my sexuality,” Morales said, when asked if he has had a same-sex experience. “But when you’re a young boy, preteen, whatever, and you’re with your friends, it’s not even sexual. It’s more athletic, if anything. It’s like, ‘Look at the straw I drew.’ I think you got to be comfortable with your sexuality to be comfortable with other people’s. That’s the root of the right-wing fear and repression. Everyone should be married to the one they love.”
The NY Daily News reports that NYPD Blue star Esai Morales discussed sex and violence on television with Jason Sechrest on KSEXradio.com, a porn site. “You can show a man getting his head blown off on TV, but you can’t show a man getting blown,” Morales said. The actor, who leaves the police drama after tonight’s episode, was angry that ABC had chosen to “darken” a nude sex scene his character has with costar Jacqueline Obradors. Also, when asked about size, Morales mentioned something about doing jumping jacks in the nude and hitting himself in the face. Punishing.
