Man-on-man love

Filed under: India — Chris @ 4:00 pm

So, there’s a lot of man-on-man hand-holding in this town. Coming at this from a non-homophobic angle: what’s the necessity for it? What does it signify? I’ve always interpreted boy-girl hand-holding and arm-wrapping as a sublimated expression of sexual longing… And, of course, so must the rest of the Western world, since we all agree that heterosexual men should not hold hands, and should only hug at sporting events.

I’m pretty sure I have seen boy-girl hand-holding here as well. How is this hand-holding different from same-sex hand-holding? Or is it all the same, Platonic affection, and my dirty Western mind is leading me astray?
