Watching these two in Get Back brought back all my old speculations about the intensity between them.
I think it’s most likely nothing was ever consummated, but that there were complicated feelings on both sides, that at least one of them (maybe both) didn’t reflect on and understand until it was too late.

I think they had intermittent sexual relations. Complicated. They probably started as two close adolescents who had a unique intense relationship and then happen every now and then. Paris being one such place and time. They never resolved it due to the times. John strikes me as more bisexual or even repressed gay and Paul mostly only had it on for John.

The combination of fury, coldness, sadness, and competition they both showed toward each other intermittently after the break-up reminds me of falling out with a close friend I got romantically involved with.

It’s eerie that the arch in the back looks a little like the Dakota arch and that his haircut ,on that day, harkened back to the early days.

It's clearly a highly sexualized photo. The type you take of your boyfriend in Paris when he's 21 and you're a bit younger.

I didn’t realize John had such nice thighs.

In more than one interview when saying he shared a bed with John many times in the early years, Paul qualifies it by saying that they "topped and tailed it." It's curious that he seems to need to add that bit.
Say you were in a strictly platonic relationship with a same-sex friend and someone made a suggestive comment; wouldn't you just laugh it off and say, no, we didn't – end of story? In Paul's case, by qualifying it, it seems like maybe there's more to the story and he has to cover it up with this image that they're sleeping with their feet in each other's faces.
[quote]I grew up with John. We kind of–we slept in the same bed in hotel rooms. We topped and tailed it like kids do, you know, when you're growing up.

I have the ‘Two Virgins’ album he did with Yoko in 1968, where they were naked on the cover. Hung onto it all these years. Anyway, he’s hung like a horse (and uncut for those who care.)

Should have said he WAS hung…

We've all seen the photo of his uncut and probably unwashed average size penis, a million times.

Sexy stance, prominent Basket, cute Zipper, strong meaty thighs, he was young and vibrant, adventurous, horny all the time, I can see it happening with Paul, sure. Still both musical geniuses for the ages, and humanity is better for it.

"he has to cover it up with this image that they're sleeping with their feet in each other's faces. "
What if... Maybe, they each had an unresolved foot fetish?
Can you imagine that?

The trip to Paris in1961 -just the two of them- sounds and looks like a honeymoon for them.
- "John and I went to Paris on birthday money he received from a relative. He must have been fond of me to spend that money. He let me have all the banana milkshakes I wanted.".- Paul McCartney
- In 2007, Paul described his idea of heaven as a journey to Spain through France....which is exactly what his trip to Paris in '61 was, with John.
“Don’t you miss England?”, “Frankly”, John replied, “I miss Paris.”

R9 Do you have a lot of straight guy friends?
It’s not uncommon at all for two teenagers, especially ones who drink a lot, to sleep in the same bed together.
I’d go to parties and by the end of the night my guy friends would be passed out spooning each other.

John was certainly NOT "hung like a horse".
Don't you just love when people on DL lie, then someone can immediately find photographic proof of the lie, then post the photo! 😂 🤣

"But the romantic friendship between Paul and John, fraying yet unbroken, is the band’s, and the film’s, emotional center. It’s constantly flickering in their eyes, in the physical chemistry between them, in the rhythms they fall into that leave everyone else a few inches outside.”
— In ‘The Beatles: Get Back Is an Eight-Hour Love Story‘ by Carl Wilson for Slate (20 November 2021).

- “We were each other’s intimates.” -Paul about John in The Beatles: A Biography
- “Paul and I know each other on a lot of different levels that very few people know about.” -John
Q Magazine - 1998 :
Q: “If John Lennon could come back for a day, how would you spend it with him?”
Paul: “In bed.”

They were adolescent virgins
With a sense of humor stolen from Peter Sellers and The Goons.

John's books were definitely Goon rip-offs.

John Lennon aped Peter Sellers.
George Martin produced comedy records for Sellers and The Goons prior to producing for the Beatles.
I assume they're all on drugs in this incomprehensible video

R8, well buckle up because the way John thrusts his undulating hips is just shameful I tell you, just horrid. I had to watch this 5 hours straight just to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing.

Who would have thought that “banana milkshake” could be a double entendre.
