Part 2 of Andrew's chat with Tom Crewe continues! Tom left us on the edge of our seats when he discussed why water is such a male homoerotic symbol in literature. He begins here and then jumps right into the nuances of John Addington Symonds' marriage to a woman while having sexual affairs with men. Andrew asks Tom what happened when Symonds and Ellis theorized what it meant to be a "male homosexual"? Was anything lost because men who sexually desired other men could now be classified as a homosexual?
