Sex and politics might make for strange bedfellows, but that doesn't stop director John Travis from tackling a loaded topic. AVN reviewer Avid Chute says, "It's the West Side Story of gay porn." Class structure and social strata are integral plot factors in this bittersweet tale of lovers from opposite sides of the tracks. Jeff White and Ethan Marc break each other's hearts and then fuck to forget, never resolving their differences.
Set in the 1950s, complete with classic cars, a mechanic's garage, a diner and sex scenes with black socks, Tailspin provides a nostalgic view of that homophobic era. Marc cooks with Brett Winters in an early fuck scene in the kitchen atop the industrial-strength stove. A fetishized wrestling scene between Brent Cross and Seth Black is another high point.
No kink, just six clean, athletic pairings. High production values and good-looking actors who deliver dialogue almost as well as they deliver thundering orgasms make this a top-notch video.
