Gay Essential Films To Watch, I Want Your Love

In the gay-erotic film I Want Your Love; when life catches up with him and his job causes him nothing but trouble, Jesse realises he can’t afford his life in San Francisco any longer. Sitting on packed bags, his house mate Wayne (Wayne Bumb) organises a surprise bon voyage party for Jesse (Jesse Metzger). Worried about moving back to his hometown, Jesse confides in his other house mate Keith (Keith McDonald) who manages to lift his spirits.

With Jesse leaving, Wayne asks his boyfriend Ferrin (Ferrin Solano) to take Jesse’s room. Initially thrilled, Ferrin is soon worried that Wayne might have an interest in Jorge (Jorge Rodolfo). Meanwhile, Jesse wants to say goodbye to Ben (Ben Jasper), his ex-boyfriend. Whilst out shopping Ben runs into Brontez (Brontez Purnell), an old friend who agrees to meet Ben at Jesse’s party. Both thinking that there might still be a spark between them, Ben and Jesse soon realise that their feelings for each other are purely platonic and not romantic anymore.

On the night of Jesse’s party, Ferrin invites Wayne and Jorge to a threesome. However, Jorge soon leaves the bed to give the lovers their privacy. Ben and Brontez keep flirting during the party, which eventually ends with them having sex. In the meantime, Jesse tries to stay away from the party by snuggling up in Keith’s clothes and listening to music. When Keith shows up, even though he was supposed to leave for the weekend, the attraction between him and Jesse becomes unbearable and they have sex, which is eventually stopped by Jesse who realises this is not what he wants.

Did You Know?

I Want Your Love is based on a short film with the same title which was also written and directed by Travis Mathews and released in 2010. The short and the full-length feature film were both produced with the help of gay pornographic studio NakedSword which led the Australian Classification Board to deny the film exemption at film festivals in Australia. James Franco has publicly criticised this decision. The actor’s own names as well as most of their own personal experiences are used and portrayed in I Want Your Love.
