Young People Fucking

Not nearly as shocking as its title would suggest, "Young People Fucking" is more comedic than clinical. This intertwined portrait of five sexual couplings offers many amusing moments in its look at the numerous physical and emotional pitfalls of sex, although it inevitably has a sketch-like vibe, coming across like an R-rated edition of the old TV series "Love, American Style."

Director Martin Gero cuts back and forth among the five episodes, tracking their amorous encounters with chapter headings ranging from "Foreplay" to "Afterglow."

They involve a married couple (Kristin Booth, Josh Dean) who attempt to spice up their staid love life with a sex toy; a pair of longtime friends (Aaron Abrams, Carly Pope) who decide to help each other out during a dry period; exes (Sonja Bennett, Josh Cooke) who rediscover their feelings for each other when they have sex for old time's sake; a playboy (Callum Blue) who gets a comeuppance from a new conquest (Diora Baird); and, most amusingly, a pair of warring roommates (Peter Oldring, Ennis Esmer), who bond during a threesome with one of their girlfriends (Natalie Lisinska).

Although the proceedings are not particularly graphic, the risque content and the hotness of several of the frequently nude performers is likely to satisfy those looking for mild titillation.

And while the script--co-written by the director and Aaron Abrams--isn't particularly deep, it has enough witty one-liners, well delivered by the ensemble cast, to compensate for its schematic elements.
