Strength, power, dominance and masculinity; buzz words seen in the majority of gay male personal ads.

This documentary explores how dominance and power influence gay male sexuality. Thought provoking and controversial, sometimes disturbing, yet brutally honest in its approach, this film dares to shatter illusions and raise complex issues regarding gay male sexuality.

The director encounters 15 gay men whose sexuality revolves around power, dominance and control. The camera voyeuristically captures their sexual interactions providing insightful conversations, some of which are captured after actual sexual encounters allowing unusual access to the deeper, psychological aspects of sexuality.

Filmmaker Lawrence Ferrara has been making films since the early 2000s.

Born and living in Boston, he began classes at Boston Film & Video Foundation, which prompted him to write his first feature, A Stranger Within. The experience from that film was his version of “film school.” Multiple short films later, resulted in this current project; a documentary about gay male sexuality, a gritty, real-life exploration into the sex lives of gay men.
