Los Angeles in the year 2005: 19-year-old lads move through an apartment that has been equipped with webcams and looks like some sort of futuristic internet doll's house. Not-quite-so-young men fulfil their sexual dreams as protagonists in bareback productions. And, at private sex parties, almost every second guy has either taken part in a porn film or wants to. In 1997, I followed on camera the fortunes of a group of men who had chosen to wok - either artistically or commercially - with their bodies. This footage later become part of my 1998 documentary, SEX/LIFE IN L.A.. I'm still in touch with some of the men in that film, these include: lone battler Kevin Kramer, mature shooting star Cole Tucker, American boy-next-door Matt Bradshaw and friends of the occasional model John Garwood, who died of an overdose in 1998.

This is a documentary about various aspects of lives of actors in the gay porn business.
"Sex/Life in L.A. 2" shatters any illusions people may have about the porn industry. Instead of portraying the porn stars to be glamorous models living the dream life, it exposes exploitation and the messed up lives that many porn actors experience. It tells tales of AIDS, alcoholism and drugs. It tells tales of desperation of being kicked out of "the hotel". It tells that actors do not make money out of it, while producers and distributors pocket all the money. The segments with an actor's mother talking about his son as a porn star is quite an eye opener. "Sex/Life in L.A. 2" offers a unique insight to the other side of what people do not normally see.
