Meet The Characters

ISAAC

ISAAC is a 45-year-old senior private banker. He used to lead a double life when he was married but is now enjoying his newly found freedom. He hosts chem-sex parties at his luxury condo apartment on weekends.

RIDZWAN

RIDZWAN is a 30-year-old accountant. He is your typical “discreet, fun only, top here, no place” gay man who frequents saunas. He keeps to himself, and segregates his work, social and sexual activities.

Joel

JOEL is a 26-year-old yuppie who works in a PR firm. He lives with his parents and is out to everyone who cares to know. Attractive, smart but impatient, Joel hasn’t had a relationship that lasted more than 3 months

Rai

RAI is a 20-year-old NSF who is new to the scene. He is an idealistic, young, gay man who goes on dates searching for Mr. Right. Unfortunately, his dates tend to end tragic-comically and he loses faith in finding love in a world where sex is on everyone’s mind.
