No, pervs, this isn't the original in the long-standing porn series. The story does involve porn, though.

It's Deacon's 16th birthday, and he's going through all of the horrors that most boys his age endure. As is the norm for teenagers, he has raging hormones that he has no idea what to do with. Making matters even worse, he discovers that his girlfriend, Rachel, has had sex with another guy. This stings extra hard since when Deacon had the chance to sleep with her, he just couldn't bring himself to follow all the way through. Things get progressively more awful when he is fired from his job at the local video store. Seems Deacon's boss caught him with a porn video. Now, he's stuck with no girlfriend and no cash flow - especially since Deacon and his best friends made their money by illegally pirating the store's sex tapes and selling them at school. Thank goodness the school year is over.

Now, with the summer season, Deacon and his friends are looking forward to being seniors. Unfortunately, they're more or less geeks so their new-found top dog status isn't going to do that much for them. Deacon sends out hundreds of invites to his birthday party, but no one shows up. Everyone who is anyone is at a different party, so Deacon tries to get up his courage to attend. Once there, he has a brief chat with Naomi, the most beautiful girl in school. Someone then tells him that everyone is skinny dipping in the pool, and he jumps in with enthusiasm. However, when the lights go on, he's the only one naked. And humiliated.

With vacation season dragging, Deacon and his friends decide that they desperately need more porn. And so, of course, he and his friends decide to create their own, fashioning a studio in Deacon's basement. They recruit girls from a local strip club, advertise on the Internet, and start to make some serious cash. As is the case in all such bawdy teen romps, though, the boys have gotten into more than they bargained for… (Kim Hollis/BOP)
