DescriptionPeter de Rome viewed eroticism as involving more than just sex. Sexual consummation is rarely the centrepiece of a de Rome film. He is far more interested in the full experience of intimacy - the longing, the pursuit, the passion, the afterglow, and in some cases, the aftermath. The eight shorts in the series take the viewer on a lurid sexual expedition designed to do more than titillate. From humorous to sardonic, de Rome truly pushes the edge of filmmaking as his characters find themselves in surreal scenarios ranging from a wondrous garden setting to an underground subway. Almost 40 years later The erotic films of Peter de Rome remains one of the most highly regarded gay art films of its day - a classic example of the intersection of artistry and eroticism ...
