horsemaster: Oh! My! Sara H is new to me and I am just knocked over by this set. She has a very attractive body, but it's her face and eyes that do me in. Very expressive. The set is a wonderful mix of sophistication and sexy. We get a nice mix of traditional glamor shots and then more and more graphic, and all...
horsemaster: Albert forgoes his recent emphasis on sexART and gives us a set of SEXwithoutmuchart. I missed his work with natural light here, but found a few shots of Simona's face and figure that are quite nice. And I skipped most of the gyno shots after the first dozen or so. I'm sure some folks will welcome...
horsemaster: Notwithstanding what fer realz and RedPilot say (and I generally agree), this is a very nice set of the hot and wet Susana. I especially appreciate the great mix of mid- and close-up shots. Susana is very good about conveying emotion. And just plain looking good! Great job!
horsemaster: Tess and Whitney are hot - as usual. Nice GG play. Except for the use of binoculars at the very beginning I didn't see any real connection to the Hitchcock film of the same name, and certainly no follow up as it went along. To have any real connection there needs to be at least a little story arc...
horsemaster: Gee, did ALL the inside team players get a chance to plug Viv Thomas enough today?
Photo Shoot: WOW! I like very much.
bobblehat: Absolutely gorgeous, I hope there's a lot more to come of this beautiful girl.
solrage: Yes, very beautiful words. With a little work they could almost be made into a Donne-esque love poem! He was very big on the notions of dissolving the "self" in the act of love, and of "sinking into eyes." Thanks for sharing!
_fer_realz_: Those are truly beautiful words, Amarna... thank you for sharing your passion with us, both in words and in acting. ( :
_fer_realz_: This is a topnotch set of a very beautiful young lady with a great ratio of non-penetration to penetration shots. Excellently done by both Sara and Silva. Welcome, Sara!
Female. Solo. Masturbation. Three words that describe one immensely popular subject. In the world of erotica nothing could be much simpler. And nothing could be so dazzlingly complex. A woman, alone, pleasuring herself. No props, no toys, no partner(s), no plot, no dialog — nothing but a woman, alone, bringing herself to orgasm for the sheer, indulgent delight of autoerotically-induced pleasure. Is it any wonder the genre enjoys such lasting and widespread popularity?
But just because something is simple, and just because it is in high demand, far from ensures that each and every example of solo masturbation will be at all memorable, or even watchable. The low quality of so much solo female erotica is due to a (usually) male director who may have a less-than complete understanding and appreciation of the female psyche and libido, and performers who can be coached and coaxed to over-play the action until all the realism is drained away and it becomes nothing more than a vehicle for solo male masturbation. In my career (and, yes, in civilian life, as well) I've viewed countless hours of female masturbation video. With a few exceptions, all is long-forgotten. A favorite girl lingers in memory, perhaps. Or a truly exceptional performance. But those standouts are few and far between in the crowded field of routine female masturbation movies.
But few things at SexArt are routine. Indeed, the site exists to break away from the accepted "average," and produce an exceptional product for a consumer who craves something superior. And SexArt members with an interest in female solo masturbation can look forward to a fine example of the art form in a few short days.
The film in question is titled, simply, "About a Girl." It was conceived and created by director Alis Locanta. And it stars a brilliant new arrival named, simply, Agatha. "About a Girl" is Agatha's SexArt debut, and it is about as impressive a debut as I can remember. This girl is beautiful — European high fashion model beautiful. Her limbs are long and graceful, her features refined, her lips full, her eyes haunting, her complexion luminous. One would not be at all surprised to see her commanding the catwalk at haute couture shows in Paris or Milan. But finding her here, seeing her deliver such an effortless, sincere, and absolutely unselfconscious performance — that is the real surprise! Agatha is a natural beauty of rare quality and she also happens to be a performer with the rare ability to appear completely sincere and seem as if she isn't performing at all, simply enjoying herself, by herself, for her sole pleasure.
"About a Girl" is beautifully simple, and simply beautiful. Agatha sits at a table reading a magazine. She eats a grape. The camera, pleasantly confined by the tiled walls of the sleek space, moves back and forth, up and down, moving in for detail as needed, and then pulling back out again — and capturing some striking, unexpected images along the way. And yet the brilliance of Agatha's performance is that the camera doesn't exist for her. She is alone, existing only for herself, for these moments of exquisite intimate pleasure. Yes, Agatha is a pleasure to watch, and her future on film looks promising. And "About a Girl" is about as good as solo female masturbation gets.
