Enticing Title
25 July 1999 | by (miami beach, fl) – See all my reviews

Just shown at the 1st Annual Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (a hugely successful event here), the film was very well attended, as have been all of the films. There have been some good, one great (Head On), and the usual supply of mediocrity. Sex Life in LA falls into the last category due mostly to the dreary/ boring individuals who make their living somehow connected to sex.Its perfectly decently made, but these guys are all in all just plain dull. There must be people in the industry who would be more interesting to interview. A bit higher IQ for the subjects would be helpful.Not much introspection or thought here. The high points of the film are a bathtub masturbation scene including "the money shot" by Madonna's ex now very tired looking model Tony Ward and self mutilation scenes by performer Ron Athey.Without doubt Athey is the most articulate and interesting subject, but what a subject! So there is surely better sex life in your own home town, even if it is back ass nowhere and in back ass you wont be seeing this film anyway.
