The seduction of a straight guy is a fantasy for many gays. In actuality it’s mainly an ego trip as the sex is seldom—if ever—good. In films it’s always hot. Of course the guys in the films are about as straight as the Yellow Brick Road. STRAIGHT TO BED is a film that feeds the fantasy of “straight seduction”.

The opening scene is by far the best. It is done with wonderful humor and the acting is top-notch. None of the remaining scenes come anywhere near it in believability and/or sexual heat. “Straight” Jack Sanders and “gay” Park Wiley are watching football on TV. Or rather, Jack is watching football and Park is watching Jack. Between touchdowns, Jack complains that his wife won't go for three-ways. Naturally, Jack is thinking of himself, his wife, and another woman. Park suggests that wifey might be more accommodating if he would permit her to first have a three-way with her husband and another man. “But where will I find another man?” Jack laments. “OH, shut up and lean back,” an exasperated Park orders. And down he goes. In no time, Jack's big dick is reaching heavenward. “Let me try it a bit,” Jack suggests, and starts polishing Park’s penis. He will also plow Park’s ass. We assume that now Jack’s wife is going to be a very happy gal.

The motivations for the other straight/gay encounters is less understandable. Indeed some make no sense at all. Nor are the pairings as good as in scene one. Did the director lose interest after the first scene? This reviewer did.

In the second scene for example Michael Vista sets up a camera to film his seduction of Sean Steele on the staircase. Sean’s wife has gone shopping and Michael makes his play for Sean. Sean is attractive with a shaved head, and a fine body if you like ‘em milk-white. He has a big dick. The sex is cleverly photographed on the staircase, but the weak link here is Michael.

Scene three presents an even bigger problem for me. Andrew Addams plans to seduce someone’s husband and tells the wife over a cell phone to send him over. Meanwhile Andrew’s eye has lighted on the gardener, and he tells the wife to hold off for an hour or so. Now the problem for me is that I don’t find the gardener attractive in the least. There was an old movie on TV the other week with a scary character called “The Tingler”. That’s who the gardener reminds me of. You might like them big and homely. I’m more finicky. I would have waited for the husband even if he looked like Don Knotts.

The fact that Andrew is one hunky dude (chunky build with a preponderance of hair on his torso) makes him very desirable. If he had been paired with someone of equal or only slightly less attractiveness the scene would have sizzled, as Andrew is a voracious bottom. As it was I just couldn’t get into it.

The film finishes with a threesome: Rob Romoni, Fredrick Ford, and Ben Damon. (No, this latter is not the lovechild of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.) Rob and Fredrick think Ben is gay and is coming over to attempt to seduce them so they decide to turn the tables and seduce him. The logic of this eludes me. If it were a ploy for closeted Rob to get into the ass of his straight pal Fredrick, I would understand. Anyway when Ben arrives he finds himself the center of amorous attention. Of course, soon everyone is into it. The hottest moment is with Fredrick sitting on Rob’s cock as Ben sits down on Fredrick’s. But it last too short a time! Almost immediately Frederick is left sitting on Rob’s cock. Ben’s cock is in his mouth. They do return to the triple-fuck in a standing position, but it isn’t as hot as the sitting one. After all have shot their loads, we find the joke’s on Rob and Fredrick when Ben tells them reason he came over was to tell them he plans to get married. Will he still, I wonder?

The sex is photographed extremely well. But I found motivations for the straight to bent seductions sometimes either obscure or difficult to accept. My main quarrel is with the casting in the two middle scenes. This doesn’t mean they won’t appeal to you. The final scene is good. But the opener is super. Check it out.
