The slick box will sell itself. Give it prominent display.
Thanks to productions like this one, set in a dreamy, carefree world of muscular men aboard gleaming yachts, Titan is fast solidifying a reputation for providing quality beefcake in the tradition of Colt and Kristen Bjorn.
Packaging and advertising take full advantage of Titan exclusive Dean Coulter, who was turning heads on San Francisco streets well before his debut here. The video opens with muscle-boy Coulter luring his muscle-daddy Reid through the hatch and onto the deck of their yacht, where they make passionate love on the open sea (great crotch-lighting). A refreshing dip in the azure waters off a dazzling white beach, and then it's back to more lovemaking.
Three more couples round out the action: Rivera and Clarke, Stevens and Kroner, and Zerega and Carlos. The segues in between are filled with pretty images of tropical foliage, sparkling water, and splendid Caribbean seascapes. Swell takes places in that privileged, perfect, mythical world that A-Gays have been dreaming of with a sigh and a hard-on ever since the days of the Athletic Model Guild. It won't be to every viewer's taste (Falcon is hotter and raunchier, and Bjorn's models exude more genuine charm), but directors Cam and Kirsch are honing a signature style sure to attract a following.
