    • Synopsis
    • Throughout the 60s and 70s, Italian beaches were crowded of young girls coming from Central and Northern Europe: while Italian girls used to feel uncomfortable with everything concerning sex outside marriage, these girls showed the Italian boys a more emancipated way of experiencing love.

      Italy is famous for spawning many a Latin lover, a man who is zealous about love and sex and that can make any woman on Earth feel beautiful and blissful due to his passionate and romantic nature. Most women are absolutely unable to resist the charms of a real Latin lover. In earlier times, most men from Italy were concerned to be Latin lovers and the country was famous the world over for its appealing men who dated many women, always in search of the right one for them. In books and movies, Latin lovers are often depicted as tall, dark and handsome with golden skin and molten dark eyes. Increasingly, many men pretend to be a Latin lover, but lack the innate charm and personality it takes to be one!

      The Italian Latin Lover was perfectly incarnated by handsome Lifeguards, who suddenly became legends, “inspiring” young boys to follow the same path for the only sake of living a wild, passionate, carefree life with the ambition of collecting dozens of girls during summer.
