The Sex Garage

United States – 1972


Shot in gritty black and white, Halsted dances from heterosexuality to homosexuality to bisexuality to fetishization to a leather biker copulating with a motorcycle exhaust pipe.
The Sex Garage was a very early instance of bisexuality (or “trisexuality” in Halsted’s words) infiltrating gay pornography, a remarkable transgression that Halsted aggressively pushed. The film also dallies with gender expectations, as a pair of panties becomes a signifier in a traditionally hypermasculine tableau.
