“Sex & The Silver Gays”
Mature Men Share Sexual Intimacy In Social Groups
Each month, New York Prime Timers members participate in “sex parties”. In this film, we learn what it means for them to continue to practice free love despite the advancement of age.
We know that sexual desire doesn’t just evaporate once we get older. On the contrary, with maturity comes wisdom and experience and both of these make men better lovers. This is exactly why the documentary, “Sex & The Silver Gays” is so important.
Filmmakers Charles Lum and Todd Verowtell the idiosyncratic story of the New York City chapter of a national elder gay men’s organization, Primetimers. Among the many elderly activities, the members also actively participate in monthly sex parties. With the film, we are invited us to an intimate gathering that explicitly illustrates their carnal activities and explains who they are, their own shared histories, and what it means to their lives to have and enjoy consensual sexual celebrations together for a long as may be possible.
