Male/male love doesn't unequivocally equal male/male sex. Frankly, we are so far off-topic with this that it goes beyond even my liberal stretch of the concept.

In fact, male/male love was prevalent amongst the aristocrats, and seen as something of a rite of passage in some cases. There was no stigma attached as long as it was also a mentoring type relationship between an older, more experienced man and a younger (though still adult) one who was wooed with gifts, and as long as the relationship ended with the marriage of either (usually the elder man).
