Check out this new web series from the US featuring Brit actress Gabrielle Ryan.
No drunk chicks, no ho's, and they can't be from Staten Island (it's a long story). These are a few of the rules Quinton has for one night stands. He's no Romeo and he's far from an Adonis.

But beware. Quinton may look like he's living a life most men dream about, but one never knows what lurks behind a woman's bedroom door.
