Cruising Shorts (10/24)

October 24, 2015 @ 11:30 pm

| $16

Presented by Straight to Hell Chapbooks.

This deliciously dirty collection of sexy gay shorts revolves around that age-old gay pastime: Cruising! Yes it’s still going strong and we’ve got the shorts to prove it. You’ll hit Greek beaches where explosive action still happens daily, time travel backwards and forwards with a 70-year-old cruising aficionado, and watch two terrific shorts about men yearning for intimacy via online and in person cruising. So turn off your GRINDR and SCRUFF and join us for some late night fun…
