, or the Helping Hand
is a pornographic elegy with redeeming social values and a hymn to the Queer Men of San Francisco in twenty telephone calls - many of them dirty.

They've never met, never seen each other and never touched but together, they explore their wildest fantasies and the contours of their lonely souls.
