Gordon Hall's 1973 gay porn film is known for having more of a plot than many others made around the same time, but little more than 20 minutes have passed before the “experiment” planned by two rural teenagers reaches the nudity phase. The writing and acting won't turn any heads (is it the script, or are these kids supposed to be a little slow?), and the most visually inventive scene, a fantasy of clothed rock climbing, is hardly great art. Yet the film does make some attempt to link the sex with the characters' feelings: Gary Lee's first encounter with someone other than his friend falls flat because his partner “does make a difference.” Porn connoisseurs will definitely want to have a look. Originally released on film by Jaguar Entertainment, this is now available only on video; all existing prints are damaged, and there are no plans to make new ones.
