Synopsis


The producers of Coming Clean and 5 Guys Chillin' present 'one of the most important pieces of gay theatre ever created' (Los Angeles Times).


Robert Chesley's Jerker, or the Helping Hand is a pornographic elegy with redeeming social values and a hymn to the Queer Men of San Francisco in twenty telephone calls - many of them dirty.


As the AIDS epidemic intensifies in the early 80's, Bert and J.R. begin having phone sex.


They've never met, never seen each other and never touched but together, they explore their wildest fantasies and the contours of their lonely souls.
