Two guys, one deadly virus, a city in quarantine and a lot of sexual desperation.
Sexuality is usually expressed through having sex. What happens when a pandemic forces you to take that out of the equation?
Andonis and Kostas find ways to suppress their sexuality in a lot of different and sometimes a bit silly ways. They spend their days online doing drag aerobics, cooking, exercising, experimenting with sex toys and mostly by negotiating a meeting with each other.
But human connection can’t be forced or engineered. The greatest distance between them is what they can’t confess to each other.
Sexual Distancing is a post teenager queer dramedy about the sex we didn’t have and the way we grew emotionally when all we had was an internet connection.
Kostas (Thodoris Vrahas) is frustrated with the quarantine. Not only does he have to stay home but he also can’t find anyone to hook up with. He isn't sure he wants to either. Because he is also afraid of the coronavirus. So he finds confort in video games and sex toys.
Andonis (Jeo Pakitsas) is a bit more romantic. He is excited about all the things that he can do now that he has more time to stay home. Every day is a new adventure! From the list of movies he has on his list to the plants in his balcony, there is always something exciting for him to try.
