Rodney McKay just went through a horrible break-up and wants nothing to do with women for awhile; he doesn't even want to look at them. Needing a little time to himself, and an opportunity to work on a side project with no distractions, he books a vacation at an all male resort. It will be easy to politely (or not so politely) brush off any guy who hits on him. Women do it to Rodney all the time; how hard could it be? In comes John Sheppard, the handsome bartender with his gravity-defying hair and his charming smile. The attraction to John is confusing to Rodney at first, because he always thought of himself as straight.
