A love story about fetish porn, this remarkable documentary charts the rise and fall of homegrown gay porn studio Palm Drive Video with jaw-dropping archival footage, devoted interviews, and a dedication to promoting safe and kinky gay sex. Original, joyful, filthy, and a vital part of our history.

Legendary leatherman Jack Fritscher met Mark Hemry in 1979 at Harvey Milk’s birthday party – and the two fell head over heels in love. When the AIDS epidemic swept through San Francisco, the couple left the city to begin a new venture: turning a rural ranch in Sonoma County into a safe-sex porn studio that offered viewers new sexual possibilities in an age of plague. Casting rugged non-professional models to explore their unique erotic fantasies onscreen, the studio explored a wild array of queer kinks – and helped champion sex-positivity

in the porn industry.
