Relax… It's Just Sex! ★★½ 1998 (R)

Love and sex in the '90s surround gay looking-for-love writer Vincey (Anderson). His self-made extended family include best gal pal Tara (Tilly) and her boyfriend Gus (Perez), whose HIV-positive brother Javi (Garcia) has just attracted the attention of Buzz (Carson), the man Vincey had his eye on. Then there's troubled lesbian couple Megan (Scott Thomas), who has a fling with a guy (Wirth), and girlfriend Sarina (Williams), who's drawn into the arms of Robin (Petty). But romantic complications take a back seat when Javi and Vincey are subjected to a fag bashing in which Vincey violently turns the tables on one of his attackers. 110m/C VHS, DVD .
