A group of boys discover the easy money to be made on the Only Fans platform. They feel they don’t have to do much to be in a better financial position than their parents. But the naivety of youth has not evaded them yet.

What’s it like to make a lot of money very quickly by being a magnificent prick-on-demand? Alpha Kings explores the potential allure of alternative life forms and invites us to meet a group of teenagers who sell a hyper-masculinized version of themselves on platforms like OnlyFans, where they offer to financially dominate their subscribers. From a shared mansion in suburban Texas, we see them growing rich to the pace of the verbal abuse they give their “submissives”, while, through intimate scenes, we understand how they live, how they see what they do, how they don’t always agree on the sexual nature of their work (something the camera seems to have no doubts about), helping to compose the portrait of a generation that increasingly finds ways to escape the traditional paths of education and career.
