I see a mistake in this page: It isn't a documentary. Janet rightfully believes that he is having an affair but believes it is because he no longer desires her. This excitement, we find, comes from cruising the gay bars of Greenwich Village. A head-scratching message, to be sure. Douglas takes the blame for the jumpy sex scenes, conceding that he was still learning at the time how to shape not only a narrative with sex scenes but also the structure of the sex scenes themselves. The film does not equate Donald's inability to choose one sex over the other with the emotional immaturity symbolized by his fondness for balloons and his recreational use of the tire swing in his yard so much as his unwillingness to choose between wife and lover.

Andrea True in particular is most effective in this regard. He also has a secret. Coverage of the sex scenes from all focal lengths is sharp and defined as are close-up inserts, while location scenes and even some long shots within interior scenes are more lazily focused as if they were an afterthought with a couple exterior scenes looking like either 16mm blow-ups or perhaps optically zoomed in at the time of post-production.

As the film unspools it becomes a story of two people whose lives are destroyed by the selfishness of another. He discusses the risks of shooting on location, including filming on the Yale and Columbia campuses and getting a supermarket chain to allow them to shoot a scene for an adult film. It would be difficult to go further into the plot without heading into spoiler territory. The use of location footage is quite interesting and welcome. Donald Gerald Grant, lives in comfortable if predictable suburbia with precocious son David Neil Scott and devoted wife Janet disco superstar Andrea True. Tait and a number of the supporting cast members — including Everett and Miles — became acquainted with Douglas Off Broadway while a pre-disco fame True was nevertheless considered a big name at the time.
This is where the film starts to veer away from where the audience no doubt thought it was heading. When Gary tries to initiate contact closer to home, the well-intentioned prying of Pauline and mystery-reading busybody antiques dealer Irwin Jake Everett over what they believe is a blackmail attempt. He also recalls that bisexual pornography was not yet considered a viable genre, and he felt it was a mistake to begin the film with a gay sex scene which had some of the viewing audience out the door the poster art does foreground Grant and True. Their meddling only serves to make Janet more suspicious about Donald's friendship with Gary, and Donald will go to tragic extremes to keep his secret. The use of location seems to humanize the characters, taking them out of the sex film box and into reality. If this had been a story of confused identity and repressed desires, perhaps. Douglas is obviously quite proud of the film, as well he should be.
This was an amazing way for me to get introduced to a movie about same sex relationships. This is one of my favorite gay themed movies. Donald likes things the way they are and it is getting harder to maintain his double life. Gary is tired of being a dirty little secret and wants a more open relationship with Donald.

The two gentlemen really ddnt hold back. The heat of said sex scene is dissipated by cutaways to Hank and Janet who are distracted from their attempts to enjoy each other by the Donald's performance and Louise's enjoyment of it. Up to this point, we could be forgiven for thinking that this was going to be a film about a man torn between two loves, between two identities. However, Donald comes across more as someone who wants to have his cake and eat it too without much consideration for the consequences that may befall the other players in his game.
