All Male, All Nude: Johnsons – Documentary Review
All Male, All Nude: Johnsons is an intimate look at the male stripping scene (specifically for gay men). It might not be for everyone, but I enjoyed seeing all of the heart behind running such an operation and the sense of community it helped create.
I was provided a free screener of All Male, All Nude: Johnsons for review. The opinions are my own.
This documentary is a follow-up to 2017’s All Male, All Nude. The current documentary is about ‘Johnsons’ which is Florida’s newest gay strip club. We get to meet Matt Colunga. He is an award-winning bodybuilder as well as ‘Johnsons’ creator and owner. For those who remember, Colunga was also in the first documentary. He’s been part of the industry for 23 years and is very willing to train his employees and give them a stable job.
‘Johnsons’ has a lot of diversity going on for it. We get to know about numerous male entertainers who work (and have worked) there. The dancers come from different backgrounds, and I liked seeing how ‘Johnsons’ was able to give them a job and create a sense of family amongst them.
The dancers (straight and queer) include single fathers, students, and more. You can see how appreciative they are of ‘Johnsons’ for helping them take care of their households, pay for academic classes, aid in strengthening their finances for future investments, and more.
I’m all for professions that respect its employees, and ‘Johnsons’ does come across as one. Many young queer people, who were forced out of their homes, end up experiencing lots of hardship. They need safe working environments and businesses like ‘Johnsons’ help put a roof over their heads (if that’s something they’re interested in).
As I mentioned, there’s a lot of heart in this project and it’s filled with emotional scenes, too. If you are interested in knowing what goes into running a strip club and how the dancers are managed, I recommend you check this documentary out. Be aware, there’s ample full-frontal male nudity in this documentary. So, viewer discretion is advised.
All Male, All Nude: Johnsons was released on DVD and VOD on September 24, 2019, from Breaking Glass Pictures.
