Yes, reader, dreams really do come true as Netflix announced a new rom-com loosely based around Antoni Porowski and his dating experiences as a sexually-fluid man.

The Queer Eye star, who likes to be choked and once said he’s “pathologically co-dependent”, is working with the streaming giant for a project titled Girls & Boys.

Porowski developed the story with Black-ish creative Kenya Barris, while Andrew Rhymer and Jeff Chan – the filmmakers behind Hulu’s rom-com Plus One – have been signed to pen the screenplay, according to Hollywood Reporter.

Antoni Porowski has spoken candidly about dating men and women. 

The resident food and wine expert is has spoken at length in the past about his dating life previously said he’s dated more women than men in the past and that, since dating men, he’s contended with body image issues.

It comes with the playing field, Porowski described, as he found himself comparing his own body to the men he dates, from the size of their biceps to the length of their legs.

Moreover, the 35-year-old has candidly chatted about his refusal to strictly identify with the label “gay”.

“I feel like if I do refer to myself as gay, which would make it easier for people to understand sometimes, I feel like it dishonours women that I’ve been in love with,” he told GQ magazine.

He added that he prefers to live without a label, though “fluid” or “queer” comes close.

“I don’t really know and I kind of like not knowing,” he said.

Across his nearing three-year journey with the Fab Five, he said that the work and the cast have helped him to “get to a place where I’m a lot more comfortable in my skin”.

In other pressing news, the Netflix star does enjoy being choked. 

But his wheelhouse, as Antoni Porowski understands it, is more than just avocados.

The chef released his first cookbook earlier this year to critical acclaim and took to touring to help promote it.

During his time on the road, Buzzfeed sat down with him where he revealed the rather intimate detail about his life when he reacted to post-watershed tweets about himself.

“If you like choking make sure you have a safe way,” he said, “actually, I learned this the hard way, about to have some TMI [too much information].

“Don’t have a safe word – have a safe move because often you can’t speak if you’re being choked.

“Pro-tip, you’re welcome to that, kids.”

We’re unsure whether that scene will be used for the Girls & Boys mood board, however, but we can only pray.
