SAUVAGE / WILD, Camille Vidal-Naquet’s riveting and vibrant erotic journey of a 22-year-old male prostitute named Leo, features a stunning performance from Félix Maritaud (BPM). Leo trades in love as much as lust, and wanders through his life without rules or restrictions. Through a series of encounters that offer a glimpse into the complicated and visceral world of male sex work, Leo finds himself searching for affection anywhere he can get it – whether it’s the unrequited love for his hustler friend Ahd (Eric Bernard) or in the arms of an older, vulnerable client. Will Leo choose his freedom and the dangers that come with it, or the comforts of a stable relationship? After all, in this unpredictable world, who knows where he’ll end up?
You can pre-order your copy of Sauvage/Wild (available July 23) at WolfeVideo.com for only $21.95.
