TW: Miscarriages / Abortion, Rape

Worth Watching? Yes

Bechdel Test? Fail

Race Bechdel Test? Fail

Major LGBT Tropes: Ambiguous Gender Identity; Cast Full of Gay; Everyone Is Bi; Gay Aesop; Queer Character, Queer Actor

Synopsis (from imdb): A man desperate for money and no income, turns prostitute and interplays with a variety of clients and hustlers.

My Thoughts: Don't watch this for the Sapphic content, but do watch it to get a glimpse into 60s hustler and gay culture. There is a lot of penis. I do not like to see penises, but maybe you don't mind, and anyway it didn't take away from the film at all for me. Unexpectedly enjoyable.
