This documentary lovingly explores the variations on gay male sexuality in San Francisco from the 1960's to the 1990's, from the beginnings of gay liberation there, to the promiscuous seventies, on to the more careful behavior of current gays. A great deal of erotic imagery from the period is screened. The narrator and director, himself HIV positive, also discusses ageism and racism within the community, and interviewees share recollections and discussions reach back into gay life in the 1940s and 1950s. Men are interviewed about these and other topics, including their first sexual experiences, early fantasies, etc. All in all, it is a wide-ranging, if slightly unfocused, exploration of the place and times, not intended for more conservative audiences. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

interesting by DGulbranson April 6, 2003 - 12:30 AM PST

i thought it was interesting, not great, but kind of infomative and interesting, lots of porn cut in between interviews of San Francisco people. Turned out I actually know one of the people in the movie, might have made it more interesting for my. Interesting if you're gay and live in San Francisco.
