Some will be curious to see Frank Towers\' transformation to Mark Slade, and some will be drawn to his Ryker-esque looks.
West Hollywood Hope Hospital is visited by insurance investigator Jason Nikas, who has to figure out why the hospital is wasting so much money on prostate and rectal exams. You get three guesses as to why the money is disappearing, and the first two don't count.
Clay Maverick plays the hospital's Chief of Operations, who leads us through three stories before he's called in to "operate" himself. Joey Hart receives a thorough rectal examination at the hands of Dean Spencer and a variety of toys. A bandaged Jeff White (looking great after a near-fatal car accident put him in a coma almost a year ago) is given a seductive sponge bath and a little more by Gregg Arlen. Intern Mark Slade gives his sleeping co-worker Kristian brooks his own special wake-up call and Maverick, Arlen, Tommy Cruise and Ricky Starr explore each other's cavities at a board meeting.
The scenes are fun and original, even if the screenplay is a little confusing. Director Travis does a great job holding the viewer's attention and gives us some hot moments.
But what this video will be known primarily for is the introduction of Mark Slade, known to hetero viewers as Frank Towers. He had a solo scene in Billy 2000, but this is his first boy/boy scene. He does a good job - not the greatest - but he's enthusiastic and appears to be a quick learner, which is more than can be sid of some longtime gay performers.
Pre-nom Kevin Glover's editing, White and Arlen's sexy sponge scene and Travis' directing.
