Boygame

John and Nicolas are 15 years old and best friends. They are very interested in girls but quite insecure when it comes to a premiere sexual encounter with a girl. They decide that they should get some practice – on each other. Said and done, they cant look each other in the eyes. What will happen now? Can they remain friends?
