"About a Girl" — a steamy solo and a powerful premiere...

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.

The female orgasm, for me, is an awesome force of nature. Male orgasms are quite different, simple, bang, done. And usually only once. Females orgasms sometimes seem to consume the woman in a quite shattering, whole-body, quivering, twitching, bucking, mind/body/spirit kind of way. Again: force-of-nature. Not always, but sometimes. And sometimes repeatedly. And for this male, it can be humbling, inspiring, awe-inducing, frightening, even intimidating. And wholly fascinating. And something to feel privileged to have shared in the experience, whether with a partner, on film, or even through still photography. Many sexually open women know how to unleash this, with a partner, but especially in pleasuring themselves. A woman completely understanding her body and and its pleasure triggers can tune and time her orgasm to heights not possible in any other way.Or so it seems to me. And a rare few can do it over and over again. She can be aware of the camera, even play to it, or close her eyes can turn inward to just focus on herself, but if she knows how to build it, stoke it, fire it, and then totally release that sexual energy, she can create something so special, I don't know what other thing can compare to it except perhaps a religious revelation. At least for me. This is why I absolutely love solo films. Or I should say, GOOD solo films. I generally find my FAVORITE sexual actresses first via their solos, and then via GG or GB work. And this is why I encourage SexArt to continue to include a regular share of your offerings as solos. I just watched "About a Girl" and "The Sound of Silence". These are both outstanding solo films. They go into my special file of other outstanding solo films, because the are several cuts above most run of the mill attempts elsewhere. And, I would like to conclude by suggesting that among your other stellar solo performers (including APF), I would REALLY like to see you return Gabi de Costello . For some solos.

horsemaster,

I do agree with everything you write. SOLO videos are something very wonderful. But, in the same time, it's very easy to see bad samples of them. When I shoot a SOLO, I take a lot of care thinking about how to show a girl in her own life, in a very private moment, without creating fake situations. And I have long talk with models to focus on those little details (movements, hands, sights) that make a SOLO video perfect.
Maybe they are the most difficult video to shoot: when you are directing a couple of models (GG or BG) it's easier to create a relationship and a connection; in a SOLO I want to see the relation a girl has with her own life and body.

Agatha and Luna were INCREDIBLE!

Go to see "Io ballo da sola". That film is pretty different from the others: shot by me just with one handheld camera; it's a sort of music video with a strong and "indie" character: CANDICE LUKA.

Alis, thanks for the response. Your work with solo performers is absolutely top-notch and the time and effort you take with the models absolutely shows. Thank you for your continued work in the part of the genre.

I tried to find your film (Io ballo da sola) here, but, unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to search for anything by title. One can do it by performer, traits (ex: hair colore, figure, etc), but not by title. Perhaps when the revised member interface is implemented that will be possible. OR did I misunderstand and your film is still to come, or published elsewhere? I will try again by searching for Candace Luka.

An amazing film! I do hope, however, that SA is not moving too far away from b/g films. There has been relatively little of that recently. While I'm happy to see the "balance" actually balanced, with solos thrown in the mix in a way they have maybe not been before, there is currently only one b/g film among the most recent updates. MetArt has other sites dedicated to solo, but nowhere can one find sex between couples, b/g or g/g, that compare to SA's tasteful offerings. Please don't lose the baby in the bathwater!

On that note, any swinger/group sex films in the works? I would like to see more of the SA treatment of these... Cheers!

Hello owldove, We definitely haven't moved away from Boy/Girl films. We are shooting them and will be releasing at least one per week along with Solos and Girl/Girl films. Thank you for your compliments regarding our films and the connections we try to bring to each one. The philosophies behind Sexart are different than our competitors, and more and more members are reaching out to us to express this exact sentiment. I've always wanted to get into the swingers community, I think this is something you can count on in Sexart's future.

Dear BTWWD,
I absolutely agree. It's very difficult to shoot a SOLO film. What I have to show is a real intimate moment of a girl. And the most important element is not "just the masturbation", but the feelings and the mood that make the girl desires to masturbate.
In the last weeks I shot many SOLO films; every time I spent a lot of time talking with the model about the details; those details that allow the audience to feel the realism of the film.
You are going to see soon "About a girl" with debuting Agatha. She's an incredible model, with a strong personality. It was fun and very interesting talking with her about the scene. I like to direct models as I have in mind, but I do like to listen to their ideas. And Agatha was very participating.
As always in my films, music and color grading were studied a lot: I wanted to create a sort of "desaturate world" with this strong character. And Agatha played it marvellously!!

I hope you'll like it!

I've said it before, but the simplicity of a solo girl film makes it difficult to get right - but when you do there is nothing better. "Lonely Day" was just about the most extraordinary thing we have ever seen, it blew Dove away. I think she often has a quick "J Arthur" to that in the afternoon. The competitors, on the other hand, just sit a girl on a bed with her legs apart and have her diddle herself for a few minutes before panting a bit. That, as you so well put it, is more about male masturbation than female. They think a good solo film is something you can knock out in a lunch break, or in a few minutes with a nervous new model, but it takes a lot more effort than that.

Let's hope you got this right :) You nearly always do! AT l east we know you'll have put the right amount of effort into it - you always do that.

    The introduction to this is the cutest ‘slice of real life’ ever. Even if you think you don’t like boy-girl movies I’d recommend watching the first three minutes – I’m pretty sure it will stir up memories for anyone who’s ever taken a hot girl on a winter date! What I like the most is the lack of any attempt to get Antonia ‘glammed up’ – she’s a naturally cute girl who looks adorable in her coat and woolly hat, and just as good in the simple white top and jeans she wears later. The sex is just as straightforward and unaffected – just two people who are really into each other having a very good time. The simplicity of the setting creates a sense of intimacy and honesty – no frills needed.

    Hey Sydney, you're right about the subtitles. I said CC in my comment, but the subtitles are definitely the way to go. I also agree that they need to grammatically fit the context of the story as well. Ariel/Adele's writing, along with Adele's editing is spot on for me! I hope the storyline and the editing continues at this level throughout the entire series!

    Tracy and Whitney bringing all of that attitude into the room, eye balling and staring the other ladies up and down. They clearly think they are the team to beat. This will be treat to watch for sure!! I too can't wait to see the Parts with "those two...the big headed blondes." I had to laugh when I heard Margot deliver that line. (lol)

    I think the scientific data available suggests that there may be a need to define alternatives for people other than the cultural stereotype of one, single, lifelong partner, _fer_realz_. So in this regard, yes, that is a point. However this is just the physiological and biochemical data currently available with regards to human coupling as defined by these two categories. As we all know emotional and psychological factors also come into play, as well as spiritual and cultural. Yet my over all facts regarding my research suggest that: 1. we do not know enough about ANY of these categories as they relate to human coupling because as Diamond and Dickerson suggest further study needs to be done, 2. human sexuality and human relationships based on the manifestation of said human sexuality is not only unique to every individual but is also an ever changing continuum for each individual, and finally, 3. that participants, particularly professional actor/actresses/models in the adult erotic industry who have made a conscious choice, (and this part is VERY important) from an INFORMED decision based on their own needs and who've a healthy, well balanced, well adjusted mental state and psyche, might well be able to instruct those of us who cannot understand or fathom their life style as to WHY it works for them. Let me be very clear, in interviews several male and female models have expressed they specifically CHOSE their career out of an informed opinion to engage in their profession, for reasons THEY believe, and THEY standby, and THEY support. And not only are those reasons personal to them but they also very adequately and very compassionately and very thoughtfully appear to support each other, EVEN WHEN ENGAGING IN intimacy with each other and then, in particular, OUTSIDE OF such and engagement. Not only this, but many are married and have spouses who are obviously not only "unaffected" by their mate's chosen vocation but are in complete support of it. Which beg's the question: either every single one of these individuals is a lunatic, or they must be some of the most well-balanced, well adjusted, mentally and emotionally healthy people on the face of the earth. And if they are, then what can we learn from them?

    I had a little quibble with the male presence also. One of the major reasons I watch g/g erotica is because there's no male involvement - and I'm sure others probably feel the same.. I'd have much rathered a female to have been cast in the role. It is a quibble, and a very personal one at that, but I just thought I'd mention it because I like my g/g erotica to be just that, strict g/g erotica.

    Couldn't agree more about the pacing. Andrej and Adele always manage to create a special world for their performers, which allows them to explore their relationships with plenty of time and space, and allows for really subtle, creative editing. Definitely something that Guy could learn from.

    This is such a promising start. My only quibble is the male presence in the form of the game controller: too much like Charlie's Angels. This is a group of fabulous, strong women who don't need a male controller to play out the story.

    Having said that, what a great cast, and Alexis and Margo really get it going. Alexis is so cute and warm-hearted, and Margot is the perfect older (?) lover. Their interaction is delightful and has a serious undertone which makes the lovemaking quite breathtaking. You really feel the love as they settle down for the night. Adele, great editing as usual, your ability to control and vary the pace is excellent.

    Ariel and Andrej are the best creative team on MetArt; they manage to portray believable relationships and real feelings. And you are blessed with some of the best, most committed performers in the business. Alexis, Margot, thank you so much !

    _fer_realz_ 22 hours ago

    Sydney, I guess I would ask you several questions. When you say "I believe in monogamy" I believe you are referring to lifelong monogamy, correct? This is to be expected, because we grew up in a culture where lifelong monogamy is not only the expectation, it is also THE expectation, or put another way, the only expectation, as presented in popular lore/cultural mythos.

    However, our culture has loosened up over the last centuries to the point where adult people are free to follow their hearts (and other parts) and we find that, in these circumstances, most people are ~ at best ~ serial monogamists. While serial monogamy is presented in popular lore/cultural mythos, there is always a stigma of undesirability to it ~ it is always presented as a failure of character.

    When, in fact, as you point out, we are actually biological organisms programmed to breed and lifelong monogamy is a product (I would argue) of the higher mental processes we have evolved on top of our animal/biological organism "programming" or instincts (and instincts can actually be very, very complex: look at the complex ways bees interact for an example). Therefore, when we act as serial monogamists we are actually being more true to our natures than the cultural mythos we have invented since the evolution of our higher mental processes.

    I guess I would ask, not necessarily whether monogamy is possible, or even lifelong monogamy, so much as, a) under what circumstances and b) is it really possible to find ALL components of happiness ~ whatever that might be ~ within the confines of one single primary relationship?

    I think one of BlackWing's points (pardon me if I'm misrepresenting your ideas, BlackWing, and please feel free to jump in and correct me if I am) is that ~ for MOST people ~ we have to have more alternatives available than the cultural stereotype of one single perfect person for a lifelong partner. Perhaps this means serial monogamy ~ perhaps it means multiple relationships or even polyamory in one of its numerous forms. But I would argue that our current cultural conditions have put the lie to the myth that every single person in the world has one and only one ideal lifelong partner who will meet every single relationship need for the rest of both of their lives. That ideal seems to me ~ for lack of a better term ~ a fairy tale told to children that ~ usually ~ doesn't happen in real life.

    Good point Rose. I can't talk in terms of polyamorous relationships, because I've never had one and have no desire to be part of one - however in terms of monogamous relationships... I understand that we're all flawed, but as you know, I do believe in perfection or something very close to it. If I wasn't fulfilling my partner in a certain way, I'd want that communicated to me, and I'd want to develop myself as a human being, so that I can fulfil them. Because I'd do just about anything I could for someone like Kate Bock ;)

    OMG WHERE DO I START.

    First off, even before the sex began, at the scene with the girls round the table...Whew!
    The mimicking of "goodnight" by one of the girls and the laughter that followed was a nice touch. Made me smile wide with just how cute the girls were, and how comfortable and natural they are as actresses.

    And the dialogue! I've always preferred models to converse in their native language as it lends a more realistic and organic feel to the entire story. Subtitles are good too, that it has been put in the video instead of a cc overlay. Just some slight weird errors in the translation that don't quite make sense...perhaps the meaning got lost in translation?

    The bedroom scene between Margot and Alexis was HOT. Again, conversation played a crucial factor. It really made the actresses look so much closer, so much more intimate as they exchanged banter in a language both were fluent in. Lighting was done well, it's dynamism matching that of the pace of play.

    Story is intriguing too. While the amazing race genre isn't entirely novel, to have it drive an erotic film is truly innovative. Bravo to the script writer and producers! When I heard of the filming of The Secret of Prague series starring Tracy Lindsay on Rose's blog, I've been waiting with bated breath ever since, and episode one already blows me away! This wasn't at all what I was expecting,and I must say I am more than pleasantly surprised. Now I just need to stay resilient till I get to see Tracy Lindsay in action. My absolutest favourite performer!

    I have to agree with Sydney. For me the most important new addition/improvement elevating this franchise is the unconventional and more neoteric approach to story telling which makes the intimate scenes and actual part of the storyline itself (the highlight admittedly) but not as the stereotypical "porn." Given the continued escalation of artistic and production endeavors that Team A/A is constantly achieving, (Please don't shoot me for saying this everyone but....) small increase in fees might not necessarily be out of order if this kind of work continues to be produced AS LONG AS such an increase went to the crew and performers who are doing such stunning and wonderful work. I believe in "paying for services rendered" and then I also believe in "paying GOOD money for GOOD services rendered." AL and APF are making an incredible team and hiring absolutely fantastic casting and I have no objections to paying slightly more because I am well aware that storylines/productions of this magnitude and complication require time and effort from all involved. As such, I firmly believe all of the participants should not just be compensated, but WELL compensated.

    And now on a side note, shout to to Whitney Conroy and Tracy Lindsey in the first scene. I just have to point out....did they not just walk in and freaking OWN that scene or what?! Seriously! Especially Whitney. Talk about talent!

    Very neatly summed up, Sydney – you have managed to put into words what I've believed my whole life! I'd go further, to say that to be in a successful monogamous relationship, you have to acknowledge and accept the limitations of your partner, in one or more of these aspects (just as you hope they reciprocate for you!). And conversely, to be in a successful polyamorous relationship, you have to openly acknowledge the role that each partner may play in jointly fulfilling these needs. I've tried both, and I don't really have an opinion as to which is better – maybe they fit into different stages of life?

    Hey BlackWing - this is a really interesting article...

    I've contemplated the concept myself numerous times over, because I understand that as animals, instinctually we are designed to reproduce, and specifically, reproduce for the purpose of ensuring genetic diversity and thus survival of the species. So, basically we're programmed to 'f**k' and reproduce with as many different people as possible.

    Now when it comes to monogamy, I feel that it's nothing more than an outdated, age-old societal/cultural construct - and one that requires us to deny our programming. That said though, it's one I do believe in. Weird right?!? So here's my take on things.

    After having watched LFS(1), Memento and The Heat: Vol. 2, I've come to understand that when it comes to relationships, they need to be: sexually AND emotionally fulfilling first and foremost, but also mentally, spiritually and socially fulfilling too.So I think that when in a relationship, you need to ask yourself, 'does that person fulfil me in the 5-pronged way mentioned above?' If so, I'd deem them marriage-material, if not, I'd break it off. Why? Because when you're not getting something from the someone, you search for it someone else.

    Anyway... Can I put a copyright on this view? Because I'm currently working on something that portrays it, and I don't wanna see anyone else steal my idea... Now you might think that's funny, but I'm serious.

    Anyway, great article/opinion piece BlackWing, thought provoking, and response provoking. I'll be interested to read this discussion as it develops.

    At last, The Amazing Race, whoops, sorry... Secrets of Prague is here! Haha :) This seems like it's going to be a heck of a lot of fun. This was a wonderful introduction, beautiful, genuine, truly tender lovemaking, shared between well-portrayed on-screen girlfriends.

    Just some notes:
    - Dialogue. It elevates this to a whole new level. The exchange between Alexis and Margo prior to and during sex add such realism to the scene and to the relationship portrayed
    - Subtitles. This is how subtitles should be done! Hard-coded, no CC and no .srt, hard-coded! The only issue I did have here is that I get the feeling the subtitles are being done by someone who's native language isn't English. So... some of the subtitles don't quite fit the context. For example, when Alexis is taking off her panties, the dialogue reads, 'yes, put them down'. That really doesn't make any sense, 'yes, PULL them down', or 'yes, take them off' would be much more appropriate. As a perfectionist and someone with OCD, I find this really grating. Perhaps before releasing future episodes, a native english speaker can have a look at the subtitles and provide feedback with how to make them more suited to the context?
    - Story. This is the kind of story I want from SexArt material. The stories need to subvert, redefine or better yet, totally do away with porn cliche's and offer something entirely fresh. They also need to engage the viewer emotionally and mentally. This is a wonderful story, I hope things continue on par, or get better as things go
    -Editing. I'd refer to this as 'technically' erotic editing. The style is languid, stretching out shots for added realism. It provides plenty of long shots (allowing our eyes to peruse the scene as we wish), and these are beautifully mixed with what are very treasured close-ups showing genuine physiological excitement from the girls. Alis, and Guy and Don in particular should definitely look at this aspect of the filmmaking here, because this is exactly the shooting and editing style I'd be using over at VivThomas.
    - Alexis. She keeps growing on me! And like Steph said, her eyebrows say everything. She's definitely one of your beautiful and talented girls Team A&A, so please continue to shoot with her. She always seems to connect in a very genuine way with her partners, specifically: Lexi, Uma and Margot

    That's all. Thank you Team A&A. I can't wait to see future instalments... especially the ones that feature those 'big-headed blondes' :)
