Scotty Bowers was a busy man in his youth. Working at a gas station in Hollywood that brought him in close proximity with the stars, Bowers found he could offer other services that were more profitable and risqué. With a group of young handsome studs, Bowers offered gay hook-ups for Hollywood stars who had to put on a straight front post-production code moral panic of the 1930s. Having just written a salacious tell-all book, Bowers goes to book signings and receives both positive responses and criticism, while journalists and researchers give context to the cultural climate and historical attitudes around sexuality in Hollywood. Meanwhile Bowers meets with his old hustler buddies, who reminisce about their sexual escapades and tell graphic stories about the sexual quirks of others.
