Taiwanese Film "Sodom's Cat" Uses A Gay Orgy To Talk About Gay Life And Love

A Taiwanese film featuring an explicit orgy scene is making the rounds in Asian film circuits and online.

Sodom’s Cat is an indie film created by GagaOOLala, Asia’s first LGBTQ streaming service.

The film centers on a group of five men from Taipei who meet through a gay app and get together to participate in a sex party.

Despite what would seem like a fairly graphic plot and storyline, the film is supposedly full of nuance and subtext. The movie’s creator, Huang Ting-Chun, meant for the project to depict psychological growth, emotional depth, and gay cultural messages through this brazen outer shell.

“This is a film talking about love through sex,” Huang said in an interview with Gay Star News, “Though it is X-rated, it is the emotions behind our current sex culture that I want to explore.”

You see, Sodom’s Cat boldly tackles hookup culture in Asian society like no film has done before, but with the purpose of expressing something deeper.

“I want to discuss this topic because it is core to gay culture nowadays. With the quick development of social networks, gay people can now be open about their sexual orientation without the embarrassment of barking at the wrong tree,” Huang remarked.

“Therefore, gays have become one of the biggest groups on personal social networks, and they use it as a place where they can get what they want.”

While the film will find its permanent home online through GagaOOLala, the movie has been making the rounds at festival circuits like the Taiwan Queer Film Festival where it was shortlisted for the Iris Award.

Unfortunately, GagaOOLala doesn’t always support English speaking viewers who wish to watch Asian content by providing subtitles (we’re not the target audience after all). But, the growing interest in the film internationally may help to promote an official English release sometime soon. (Here’s hoping).
