The story, set in the world of adult entertainment, centers around three characters: Johnny Rebel, a straight man who has become a star in the world of gay porn; Johnny's stripper girlfriend Babylon; and Sean, a naive young man in love with Johnny, who ends up becoming Johnny's "fluffer".Written by
The gay adult video which Sean rents and watches by mistake at the beginning of the film is "Citizen Cum," not an actual produced adult film. The lead actor in that adult film was the character "Johnny Rebel," played by Scott Gurney, the first billed actor in The Fluffer (2001), while the second billed actor in "Citizen Cum" was someone named "Blake Harper," who was a real gay adult video performer/actor.

You know, when I was with Sondra, when everything was great at first.
but I kept on getting this feeling like she was so into herself. Even when we were having sex, I couldn't get any closer.
Well, some people are born distant.
It's the *distance* that gets you *hooked.* After a while, it takes its *toll.*

In the R-rated rental version, some dialogue between Sean and Johnny is actually dubbed and modified in the scene where Sean "fluffs" Johnny in the back room. Johnny's question "You like my cock?" is changed to "You like me?" Sean's response "It's beautiful" is changed to "I love you." Next, Johnny says "Tell me how much you like my cock," which is changed to "Tell me how much you like me." The rest is the same. Other things missing from the R-rated version include a scene between Sean and Hector discussing Johnny as well as Hector's taste in men; and a quick shot of Johnny's penis before he explains his "fly" tattoo to Sean.

The Fluffer was a great story with some terrific performances. Roxanne Day as "Babylon" and Michael Cunio as "Sean" were both outstanding in their character portrayals of two people obsessed with something they couldn't have. What makes them even more impressive was the fact that the object of their passion was the one major flaw in the film. "Rebel" was as lifeless and uninteresting a character as I've ever seen on film.
So, while Cunio and Day were working so convincingly at wrestling with their pain, Scott Gurney's "Rebel" made their job nearly impossible. It also made it nearly impossible for the audience to care. But somehow, Cunio and Day did make us care, and that is the art of acting at its best. The supporting cast was very good, the script was very good, the direction just so-so.
