What was the reaction from members of the soap press on One Life to Live’s sex scene between same-sex partners, Kyle and Fish? Nelson Branco in his latest Suds Report for TV Guide Canada sang the deserved praises of Daytime Emmy winner, Ron Carlivati ‘s beautifully written show, and moment! Here are a few excerpt from Branco’s round-up.
Soap Opera Digest columnist Carolyn Hinsey simply offers, “I like that One Life didn’t make a big deal of Fish and Kyle’s love scene. It was almost identical to Gigi and Schuyler’s, right down to the candles and the post-romp gushiness. Kish are just another couple on the show, as they should be. I also liked that the episode had lots of Stacy in it, which meant I could fast-forward and watch the whole thing in about 25 minutes.”
On Air On Soaps, Michael Fairman reminds us how important this soap moment was. “In my 20 years covering daytime, I felt Kish’s love scene was a huge step forward for the soaps, and for the representation of the LGBT community. And the Pièce de résistance? We got to see two men in bed … together and they even snuggled! Hankies!”
