Working partners- executive producers, Will Markham and Derek Dixon are known for their top notch premium channel TV shows, Forever Young and the vampire drama Being Screwed. But when a script for a racy gay BDSM series ‘MASTER’S BOYS’ is submitted to them for review, both men wonder if the world of premium networks are ready. The two producers can see ‘winner’ written all over the script.
Photographer, Madison Henning, husband of Will Markham, and owner of Capon Publishing, is in the process of shooting his latest book of male nudes. But Madison, even though he owns his own business, is very careful about what he prints. Showing full frontal male nudes always seems to cross the line from art to porn in the eye of censors and distributors of his work, so Madison never does it. Although Madison’s pictures are homoerotic, he manages to keep the scenes sensual, without what he considers, crossing the line. And lately, he is getting angry division at the censoring standards between straight and gay photography. They seemed to be judged on an uneven playing field.
As young men both Will and Madison had goals; ‘Three Wishes’, as to what they wanted to achieve in life by the time they had reached fifty. But although the world had changed over the decades, the societal resistance to men loving men was still a battleground. More so for Will and Derek as they fight for this gay BDSM script, which was created by a woman, adding yet another hurdle to leap. And the vying for approval of this type of venture, which immediately is labeled as gay porn simply because of men loving men, is about to make both producers lose their minds.
Three Wishes: In their twenties it seemed like they had the world at their fingertips, and anything was possible. But now, even after gaining the respect and power they needed to get where they were at this stage in their lives, in their chosen fields, Will and Madison find ignorance and obstacles at every turn.
The fine line between art and porn? Will recalled someone saying; ‘If you have to ask, it’s art.’ But that didn’t make their skirmish in the war on ignorance any easier.
