Scenes from "classic" foreign films alternate with clips from gay porno tapes. "I've never done this", the narrator says over a scene from Bunuel, "but I have done this." A satire of the discourses which attribute remarkable transformative powers to sex.
I've done this. It felt very good. Afterwards I fell asleep for a day and a half. When I woke up I was calm and refreshed but I couldn't remember my name. Luckily though my wallet was right there on the bedside table.
