In Their Room is about gay men, bedrooms, sex and intimacy. The film veers into the bedrooms of eight
different men where you see them doing everything from the most banal to the most erotic. Complimenting
the revealing nature of their everyday activities are confessional interviews about fantasies, turn ons and
vulnerabilities. You never leave their bedrooms, but this is unmistakably San Francisco of the present.
The film was featured to great praise in Butt Magazine, and later won “best erotic film” at Good Vibration’s Indie Erotic Film competition.
