Manly Heat: Scorched is the first part of Buckshot Productions’ latest erotic epic. It is a collection of scenes, all set on the backdrop of an arid and rugged terrain. Josh Weston, Antton Harri, Jeremy Jordan, Simon Angel, Niko, Jason Hawke, Niko Reeves and Jesse Balboa pair up in sizzling scenarios, emphasizing natural, if not nearly primitive explorations of each others bodies and sensualities. These men are beautiful, playful, rugged, sensual and passionate, and at one point, worship each other. Director Kristofer Weston devised a series of settings that reflect and inspire these men’s innate sensuality and their ways of expressing their sexuality. They range from hot, sweaty sex, to playing in the fields of the American Southwest, to a sensual massage. The outstanding videography by Max Phillips emphasizes the heat of the setting, as well as the heat this group of performers generate and Sergio Montana’s music underscores the nearly meditative sensuality of the scenes in a trance like state, leading the viewing down a sexy, but spiritual journey. It is the perfect precursor to the second half of this series, Manly Heat: Quenched.
