Owen is the owner of a successful sex shop and is 10 years into a loving relationship with his partner, Rob. On the night of their anniversary, an aggressive robber barges in and has him at knifepoint. When the robber tries to make his escape, it is revealed that the silent alarm has been triggered, Owen seems to have regained control of the situation. This pushes the robber off the edge and causes things to get physical. We see that the robber has hands his around the owen's throat, when a safe word is uttered. It is then both Owen and the robber, Rob, plop to the ground and exchange notes about their performance. This was role-play all along, their way of celebrating a romantic milestone together.
