    The 3rd episode of \"American Gods\" is triggering rather a stir, greater than a week prior to its May 14 launching.

    Based on Neil Gaiman's 2001 unique, the Starz series will certainly feature what's been described as \"the best and most adult gay sex scene\" ever seen on mainstream television. The scene will certainly happen in between Salim (played by Omid Abtahi), a young Muslim guy living in New York, and also a taxi driver (Mousa Kraish) who is really a jinn, or a spiritual carrier discovered in old Islamic as well as Arabic mythology, in camouflage.

    Kraish discussed the \"supernaturally hot\" scene in a meeting with Out magazine. He claimed the scene will be a cultural turning point for Center Eastern LGBTQ representation. \"Now, more than ever before, that tale is exceptionally powerful. The sex scene is so intense and also intimate,\" he said. \"I do not think anything like it has actually ever occurred on television.\"

    The actor, that has appeared in \"Superbad\" and also \"The Fast as well as the Angry,\" committed to going totally naked for the scene and also, because of this, got to consider in on the last cut of the episode. \" I was like, 'Awesome!'\" he quipped. \"I got penis approval.\"

    At a press event for the program last month, \"American Gods\" exec producer as well as co-creator Bryan Fuller recommended that the scene blurred the line between sex-related and also spiritual euphoria. It \" was not a little accomplishment for 2 gay Muslim personalities to have a gorgeous, sophistical, sexual experience,\" he told Showbiz 411, keeping in mind that he as well as co-creator Michael Eco-friendly wanted to reveal \"what it resembles to take a god inside you.\"

    Up until now, television doubters seem to agree. New york city Magazine's Abraham Riesman shared his thoughts on the scene on Twitter:

    In a Vice meeting, Gaiman said he \"never visualized\" the explicit scene would certainly make it right into a tv or film adjustment of his book. \"Yet then I'm viewing it, as well as I seem watching the best gay porn I've ever seen,\" he said. \"My sampling of gay pornography is basically just this, yet I'm seeing it and also I can not believe they're doing it. You feel like limits are being pressed, and that makes me very proud.\"
