I can't remember where I read this, but I would almost swear it was from someone on the original creative team - Sondheim? Laurents? - who said that it was highly likely that Tony and Riff had a sexual relationship. The logic went something like this: even though Tony and Riff aren't related, they have lived together for five years (Riff moved in with Tony and his family) and most likely due to cramped quarters in the tenements, they shared a bed, so therefore . . .
