Society isn’t so accommodating for a disabled gay man, that David knows. What do you do when you can’t feed or bathe yourself…and all you want to do is get laid? A lack of resources means that David has little to no experience in the dating world, nevertheless, he is determined to succeed in his sexual and romantic desires. Armed with an impressive IQ and a set of nudes (taken by someone else) David embarks on a thrilling and uncertain conquest of sexual freedom. Can he navigate the battlegrounds of casual dating and one-night stands when he relies on 24/7 care and when all he has ever known is rejection?
Join David on this hilariously heartfelt journey as he transcends his identity and expectations. There’ll be many challenges to face, buckets of tears shed and an awe-inspiring message to remember.
