Gay pornography is the representation of sexual activity between males.
Its primary goal is sexual arousal in its audience. Softcore gay pornography also exists; it at one time constituted the genre, and may be produced as beefcake pornography for heterosexual female and homosexual male consumption. Although pornography has usually focused on heterosexuality due to the prevalence of the heterosexual orientation, homoerotic art and artifacts have a long history as well, reaching back to Greek antiquity. Every medium has been used to represent sexual acts between men.
