One Bjiou reviewer wrote:
Michael Goodwin is an artist living in California who has turned to video as a means to express his unique view of gay sexuality in the 1980s, and now, too, in the 1990s.
In the segments offered here, he attempts to show th emotional and spiritual levels of the masturbation experience, as well as the physical.
His men, seen alone and in groups, are not merely performers, but exhibitionists whose pleasure peaks in the presence of an observer or a video camera. They creep into the libido and become an electronic companion for the art of self-love.
Features macho and masculine men, beards, foreskin, tattoos, various stages of undress, mutual masturbation, and lots, lots more.
The film begins with an uncut man laying down by a fireplace. A youthful Latin, laying on the fireplace, is wrapped around his cock and balls as he beats off his boner.
In "Kent Sage's Blue Movie," mutual masturbation by a duo of hairy studs follows after arty special effects and negative images.
Four "monks" father for a kaleidoscope-like series of images that include nipple and cock head play, fondling, j/o, and a circle jerk, in a segment called "Rite."
A duo then switch their clothing with one another for a cloth fetish fest; then a fabulously intense group masturbation session follows, really a colossal jack off party.
A good introduction to the artful, sensual, surreal world of Michael Goodwin.
Very different and unlike most other adult films, Goodwin concentrates on the cock, masturbation, the man, kink, and visual oddities to stimulate -- and he succees well with artful, dreamy photography and interesting music.
"The work of artist Michael Goodwin, this video is more than porn. As explicit as it is -- and with its tight close-ups of erections and orgasms, it is explicit -- it is also an exploration of the impulses that prompt man to pleasure himself.... His performers are ordinary creatures doing ordinary things in extraordinary ways.... Perhaps he can best be categorized as a filmmaker who stands halfway between Christopher Rage and Joe Gage, both of whom seem to have influenced his work." -- Stallion Magazine
