101 Rent Boys is shot on location in various motel rooms situated on the length of the Santa Monica Boulevard, and features 101 different hustlers. Although the film features 101 different people, it focuses on the lives (and loves) of a few key men. They have been chosen to reflect the immense diversity of the boys of the Santa Monica Strip. An amazing thing happens when you cross a video camera with award-winning directors, $50 and a hustler. The pieces are slickly grouped to cover certain themes; such as their first john, gay for pay, homelessness, drugs or the reason that they began to work as a rent boy. It also explores the variety of insiders' opinion on subjects such as; how a rent boy should dress, speak, act, think, give head, receive head, increase cash flow, keep safe, walk, eat, smoke, and flirt.

Despite the title, this is not a rehash of HBO's "Real Sex" series, as the title may suggest. Instead, we get a poignant, exceptional documentary about life on the streets and how male prostitutes are certainly real people. Truly unflattering, touching, and very graphic.
Be cautioned, this has nudity, strong sexuality and language, which explains it "R" or "No rating." If this alone steers you away, for fear of this, be my guest. If you like exceptional documentaries like this, be my guest.
