Numerous New York City dwellers come to the exclusive club Shortbus to work out problems in their sexual relationships. Rob and Sophia are a happily married couple, except for the fact that she has never experienced sexual climax. This irony follows her to work because she is a couples counselor who frequently has to deal with the sexual issues other couples have. Two of her patients are Jamie and James, a gay couple who have been monogamous for five years and counting. James wants to bring other men in to the relationship, and his own history with depression may hint at an ulterior motive. Ceth (pronounced Seth) may be the perfect addition to their family, but Caleb, a voyeur from across the street, may have his own ideas about that. Sophia visits Severin, a dominatrix with secrets of her own to reveal. Written by

A Delusive and Bad Movie With Many Pornographic Scenes & Without Any Comedy!.
Shotbus Movie Is A Movie that Has No Comedy At All.It is A delusive Movie With Some Drama & Half Pornographic Scenes.
The plot revolves around a sexually diverse ensemble of characters trying desperately to connect in New York City. The characters converge in a weekly Brooklyn artistic/sexual salon loosely inspired by various underground NYC gatherings that took place in the early 2000s. According to Mitchell, the film attempts to "employ sex in new cinematic ways because it's too interesting to leave to porn." Shortbus includes a variety of explicit pornographic scenes containing non-simulated sexual intercourse with visible penetration and male ejaculation.
We see a room full of nude men and women having sex in various positions; genitals are clearly visible, including erect penises and penetration, in several club scenes.
A nude man lies on a floor (his penis is clearly visible), brings his legs up over his head and stretches to put his erect penis in his mouth (auto fellatio); he then masturbates and ejaculates on his face.
A man masturbates (we see his genitals and rhythmic movement) and ejaculates on his own face.
A husband and wife have sex in a variety of positions: her bare breasts, pubic region and buttocks are clearly visible, we see thrusting and hear moaning, and his genitals, bare chest and buttocks are also visible.
Three men have sex with each other, performing different acts on each other at the same time (they are all fully nude and erect penises are clearly visible).
Two fully nude men (their bare buttocks and genitals are visible) sit on a bed together, they caress each other, they lie on the bed and they have sex (one man penetrates the other and thrusts).
Two men have sex (we see kissing and thrusting) and another man watches.
A man masturbates while a woman in dominatrix costume whips the bottom of his feet; he ejaculates and we see discharge on his face and on a painting hanging on the wall behind him.
A man (his erect penis is clearly visible) masturbates while watching a pornographic video (we hear moaning) and his wife interrupts him.
A husband performs oral sex on his wife (she is fully nude and her bare breasts and pubic region are clearly visible).
A woman puts a vibrating egg in her panties and gives her husband a remote control to use to stimulate her and communicate with her (we hear buzzing several times and she reacts each time by twitching).
Two women lie in bed together, they kiss and caress each other, and one woman climaxes by rubbing against a vibrating mechanism that the other woman is wearing.
A woman wearing a sheer negligee (her nipples are visible) masturbates using a vibrator.
A woman masturbates in several scenes trying to reach orgasm, but is unsuccessful.

We see several photographs of a nude man with genitals and buttocks clearly visible.
A man and a woman kiss passionately.
Two men kiss tenderly.
Two women kiss tenderly.
A woman and a man kiss tenderly.
A young man kisses an elderly man and they hug.

A woman tells another woman that she saw her husband having sex with a man.
Several women talk about their best sexual experience.
Two women talk about orgasms and how they can affect relationships.
A man describes a part of a woman's vagina in vulgar terms.
A woman confesses that she has never had an orgasm.
A man talks about having been a paid escort.
A man reaches into another man's pants and makes a remark about him being "sexy." A prostitute holds a dildo in her hand and several dildos are lined up on a window sill (there is a variety of sizes, shapes and colors.)
For these above reasons,this movie is more of An X-rated Straight & Gay Porn Movie Rather Than A Comedy Or A Drama.
