For those not in the know, a fluffer is someone who provides, um, assistance to male adult-film stars so they’re able to ”perform.” The titular fluffer is 22-year-old Sean (Cunio), who gets a job at a porn studio after becoming infatuated with gay-for-pay video stud Johnny Rebel (Gurney). Cunio ably conveys Sean’s unrequited love for Johnny, and Debbie Harry shows up as the manager of a strip club. (Note to Harry: Fire your agent.) There are a few titillating moments, but once drugs come into the picture, The Fluffer turns into a depressingly limp cautionary tale about L.A.’s gay-porn biz.
