The story, set in the world of adult entertainment, centers around three characters: Johnny Rebel, a straight man who has become a star in the world of gay porn; Johnny’s stripper girlfriend Babylon; and Sean, a naive young man in love with Johnny, who ends up becoming Johnny’s “fluffer”.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for strong sexual content, drug use and language
I am surprised at how many people have given ‘The Fluffer’ a poor rating. I found the film to be very entertaining. The acting was excellent, the writing was excellent, and the sexual tension is incredibly well portrayed. I would say it is not as good as My Own Private Idaho, but it was certainly up there with it in quality.
The main character, Sean McGinnis (played by Michael Cunio) was very believable and I would like to see him in more films. The porn star was played very well by Scott Gurney who has since gone on to become the host of a reality TV program (what a shame).
This is a definite surprise film – I expected b-grade and definitely got a-grade.
See it; you will not regret it.
