Sex Goes All Sorts of Wrong in New Movie Analysis Paralysis 

Analysis Paralysis

In the new movie Analysis Paralysis, a gay man faces intense anxiety that renders him unable to try new things because he imagines all of the ways in which a situation could backfire.

Director and star Jason T. Gaffney (Tyler) also cowrote the script with his father, Ed Gaffney. 

Faced with the condition known as analysis paralysis, Tyler pushes through his anxiety and asks his neighbor Shane (Kevin Held) on a date. They eventually become involved despite the myriad ways Tyler envisions it could all go wrong.

"As a filmmaker, my goal is to make movies set in the inclusive, welcoming, LGBTQ-friendly world where I grew up. My coming-out-at-age-fifteen story was basically my mom kissing me, and saying 'I know. I love you. Where did you put your dirty socks? I’m doing a load of laundry,''' Gaffney, who has long-suffered from anxiety, said in a release.  

"Although there’s definitely still an important place in LGBTQ films for angsty coming-out dramas, I just don’t see my own reflection in those stories," he adds.

In the clip below, Tyler envisions several nightmare scenarios for how his first time hooking up with Shane could go.

Analysis Paralysis is available on Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play.
