Michael has retired his “Matt Jaxx” stripper persona and now lives in domestic bliss with his boyfriend Justin. But life isn’t perfect. Michael is still plagued by nightmares of the deranged stalker he dubbed “The Creeper”. He just has to console himself that his attacker is safely behind bars. When Justin gets a gig modeling in Paris for six months, both men wonder what it means for their budding relationship, but agree it’s too good an opportunity for Justin to pass up.
Like many a young gay man before him, Michael escapes his midwestern town, comes to San Francisco, and reinvents himself. He joins a gym, works on his body and his skin, and eventually comes to think of himself as sexy. Loving music and dance, on a lark he tries out for a job as a stripper, and gets it. Using the stage name Matt Jaxx, he really enjoys his work, and becomes popular with both the crowd and the theater management.
