It also enables them to find the will to live in the face of death and the strength to conquer losing in a spectatorless sport. Written by Official

Funny story of sex and baseball in Hong Kong
22 March 2010 | by mkrjmnSee all my reviews

Kong Hong is a place where everything could be found but baseball. So, producers decided to fill a gap with this work of young sexy blocks playing balls on a field and in beds.

Was it a good idea? Yes.

How entertaining an outcome? Tools look better than actions while bodies are mostly dressed.

Is it homo-erotic? In a case, tight hair-less buttocks in bath attract ones.

Is it of a general interest of youth experimenting in HK? Sure, it is.

And night Hong Kong landscapes are well depicted and broaden general acknowledgment with a place without blood-bathing, mafia, gangs and police. Good on ya, producers!
