From the writer and director of cult film 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch', this New York indie-style 'smart-porn' follows a group of largely non-actors, as they come to grips with the various sexual dysfunctions in their lives. Sophia is happily married but has never experienced an orgasm - and she's the couples counsellor! Jamie and James are an exclusive homosexual couple, but James wants to introduce other men into their relationship; and Severin is a dominatrix with a few secrets of her own. Winner of several international film festival prizes, this fun and sexually explicit exploration of love in the Big Apple will undoubtedly be an acquired taste.
