No happy finish

A couple of years ago TBWA\France made two of the best AIDS awareness videos I've ever seen. The first was about a girl coming of age who, after going through a string of lovers, finally finds Mr Right. This was swiftly followed by an equally engaging story of a homosexual boy's journey of discovery.
Sadly, the third story in the collection isn't as good. The same humour and explicit action is there, but it misses the charm of its predecessors by BANG! - going straight into bonk mode without seeing the protagonist's development from naive virgin to sexually active adult. Such a shame.

Two observations:
1) Odd how you have to verify as being over 18 to watch these. Neither is particularly explicit.

2) Who'd have imagined Freddy Mercury as a body builder?
