Description Numerous New York City dwellers come to the exclusive club Shortbus to work out problems in their sexual relationships. Rob and Sophia are a happily married couple, except for the fact that she has never experienced sexual climax. This irony follows her to work because she is a couples counselor who frequently has to deal with the sexual issues other couples have. Two of her patients are Jamie and James, a gay couple who have been monogamous for five years and counting. James wants to bring other men in to the relationship, and his own history with depression may hint at an ulterior motive. Ceth (pronounced Seth) may be the perfect addition to their family, but Caleb, a voyeur from across the street, may have his own ideas about that. Sophia visits Severin, a dominatrix with secrets of her own to reveal.

    I thought the movie was a piece of trash honestly, but I still loved it, its a guilty pleasure of mine, and does have good music and some funny one liners and artsy scenes, it's just too dramaish and well shallow and boring outside the sex scenes, it's just problems for the sake of problems, like most movies I guess

    Personally, I loved this movie. It's not surprising that most people branded this film as "pornographic" and that's always the case, but what I loved more is the storyline and how it revolved around the 3 lead characters - the Couples Counselor and the handsome gay couple. Sofia the Couples Counselor (played by Sook-Yin Lee) is unable to achieve an orgasm despite the ministrations of her dim-witted husband Rob (played by Raphael Barker). The gay couple James (Paul Dawson) and Jamie (PJ DeBoy) decides to spice up their relationship by inviting a 3rd party in the mix. The couple suggests she attends a weekly social/artistic/sexual salon called "Shortbus," which is hosted by drag performance artist Justin Bond (who plays himself). I loved the ending of the film - during the blackout, Justin Bond sings "In The End" (one of my favorites), everyone finds new experiences and Sofia was finally able to achieve an orgasm.

    Of course the comment section is filled with people sharing half a brain cell between them who think it is just porno. This movie could not have been less pornographic if it tried. Porn is made to masturbate to and does not care about interpersonal relations, this movie shows sex as a way to connect to people and heal, get over trauma. And there is way more going on it than just the scenes depicting sexual acts. But of course that flew over some people's heads.

  • XTSY 2015-05-15 19:44:21
    is this fappable to?
  • A V 2015-03-16 04:50:36
    This movie is much more than just a porn flick. It's also a brilliant film.
  • luis seoane 2014-12-14 23:37:39
    its a piece of shit gay movie.
  • holidayingermany 2014-10-24 13:23:23
    The people in this mediocre semi porn flick are constantly teary eyed over absolutely everything and endlessly staring at eachother with these deep and meaningful looks. The answer for all their mostly invisible and exaggerated problems is; Hey let just all fuck eachother. And just the gay factor alone doesn't sell movies anymore these days. A film should actually be good on it's own.
  • holidayingermany 2014-10-23 13:32:31
    A guy coming in his own mouth is called groundbreaking now? It's porn honey, nomatter how you put it.
  • Gabriella Cordova 2014-05-12 19:16:49
    This is the quintessential sex-positive movie! Please watch this. It is a great movie and a beautiful sensual experience.
