BOYS SHORTS

Alive with the exhilarating powers of love, lust, and living out loud, the characters in this year’s rousing selection of boys’ shorts break barriers, take dares, and accept challenges as they proclaim to the worlds around them: Game on. From mythical sex deities lurking in broad daylight to poignant May-December flings at the Plaza Hotel, these stories show how everything can change in an instant, on dates or on the dance floor, when you take life into your own hands.
