Straight Up is a independent film written, produced and directed by James Sweeney. Todd, a twenty-something man from Los Angeles with OCD , has difficulty in his romantic relationships as he has a strong aversion to bodily fluids. He likes the men he dates, but aside from an attempt at oral sex, he has never had penetrative sex with them. Eventually he decides to try dating women, and attempts to hook up with a girl after getting drunk with her but freaks out when her hymen breaks. His psychoanalyst wonders if this exploration of sexuality is a good idea, but Todd fears being alone and resolves to continue trying. He soon meets Rory, a struggling actress who has trouble emotionally connecting with others, in the self-help section of a library.
