For a somewhat tangential take on this, I recommend the award-winning
eponymous (well, it’s called “Shortbus”, no space) movie:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367027/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortbus

"A group of New Yorkers caught up in their romantic-sexual milieu converge
at an underground salon infamous for its blend of art, music, politics, and
carnality.”

It’s not at all bad if you’re in the right mood for it. (As what movie
isn't?)
