Sex Life in LA (1998)
Starring: Tony Ward, Ron Athey, Rick Castro, Cole Tucker, Matt Bradshaw, Kevin Kramer
Director: Jochen Hick
Category: Gay, Documentary
Studio: Strand Releasing
91 mins



"Glossy magazines, porn stars, washboard stomachs, and street hustlers: Hollywood faithfully provides the public with a seemingly inexhaustible flood of male erotica. Sex/Life in LA brings together nine young men who earn their livings with their bodies. There are porn stars: Matt Bradshaw, porn actor and hairdresser; Kevin Kramer, who's planning his transformation from porn legend to legitimate actor; and Cole Tucker, porn star and successful entrepreneur. And there is Ron Athey, a performance artist. Finally, there are unemployed hustlers and models like Patrick and David, and ex-porn stars like John Garwood. To each of the men interviewed, the body is both the object of desire and the subject of art, and they all show their bodies freely. The scene of Tony Ward in the bathtub is worth the price of admission. For some it's been their ticket to success, and for others it's been their downfall. In the end, Sex/Life in LA entertainingly depicts the survival strategies of some of the male image industry's major players."
