Synopsis

SHORTBUS follows various New York City characters as they navigate the comic/tragic intersections between sex and love in and around a modern-day polysexual underground salon called Shortbus. Sofia is a sex therapist who has never had an orgasm. She's been faking for years with her husband Rob. She meets Severin, a female dominatrix who tries to help her. Sofia's clients include James and Jamie, who are starting to open up their relationship sexually. James suggests a three-way relationship with Ceth ; Jamie is reluctant. James seems to have a hidden agenda. His plans are witnessed by a stalker named Caleb. All the characters converge on Shortbus, a mad nexus of art, music, politics and sex. The film suggests new strategies for reconciling the unique pressures of post-9/11, Bush-exhausted New York City life with questions of the mind, pleasures of the flesh and imperatives of the heart.
