    I just watched this movie believe it or not since I normally keep up with movies and especially this kind of movie. So many mainstream movies are lacking good stories and characters with depth. Dare I really enjoyed but I do agree with many reviews it needed some raw gritty sex scenes that pushed the limits or at least looked authentic with less clothing. I did like the scene with Johnny and Alexa at the party though because it felt real to me unlike the movie with inexperienced high school girl gets up there and rides it like a pro and it all goes off without any uncomfortable moments. I liked the awkwardness and Johnny gave away the fact he was not that guy he was betrayed as being and played right along. He showed his insecurities, lack of real sexual talent and gave a very slight hint of his gay thoughts/curiosity with a few words and very subtle disinterest and facial expressions. The scene with Ben was "3 stars" but they could have played it more one way or the other or even more mixed emotions and combined fear and excitement of that first encounter. It just seemed too easy and not enough struggle with emotions and again raw sexuality once it got heated. I love the cliche line from Ben "well whip it out" that was classic. Also the after sex awkwardness should have been addressed not passed over but it should not have been overdone if they had put that in. Bens look and demeanor when he came home was cute though all happy and smug.
    Now dealing with the friends sleeping with the same guy. They both
