Man Boobs tells the story of two men about to embark on a night of passion until issues of obesity and self-esteem overpower their sexual and emotional connection. -After coming home from their fourth date, Marty invites himself up to Spence’s apartment for a nightcap. Following various attempts by Marty to get Spence into bed, Spence keeps on stalling. -Will Marty be able to get Spence’s clothes pealed off, or will he unintentionally get Spence to reveal something far more intimate than his naked body?

SPENCE: Age +/-30, body type is very over weight to obese. He is a librarian by profession. ‘Preppy’ in his fashion sense. He is masculine yet sensitive and with slightly effeminate mannerisms. He uses his quick wit and sense of humor and natural intelligence to hide his self-consciousness.
