Storyline

In this gay romantic comedy tinged with a bit of fetish, teen Kyle (Sean Tataryn) is a hopeful poet who, bored with his superficial life and West Hollywood friends, decides to move to the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, an area which he thinks is edgier and more artistic. Just after moving, Kyle discovers a neighborhood coffee shop, where he is hoping to get his poetic juices flowing, but instead meets a motorcycle riding 30-year-old carpenter (Christopher Bradley). Will their one night stand turn into something more? Written by TrivWhiz

Rent it Tonite!

A sweet may-december romance between an ugly young poet and sexy well-hung biker into kink and of course, leather.There is a lot of nudity with well-hung muscular men and some very ugly smart ass young guys too.Thank God for Older men.The movie moves in two directions at once,featuring the wild sex that the older man is used to...There is a stripper with a nice body and lots of Uh hum....reason to be proud of his body.Then there is the sappy poetry the young kyle writes.A nice turn by the drag queens as defenders of the community and Mink Stole as usual steals the show.
