On The Set Blog: "About a Girl" — a steamy solo and a powerful premiere...
0: Of course I was the one personally attacked, and lied to, and lied about. I have just commented on the photos, and I formed my opinion on this set before I had realised whose fault it was. You can talk all you like about soft lighting, depth of field, bokeh etc - these are ideals and I aim for effects...
Deltagamma.: Hi horsemaster, I understand you prefer a thoroughly spread lighting and more detail in the shadows, but I would say that in this case the choice of using that kind of light in that particular room with that specific underwear, having certain areas highlighted and certain others blurred/in the dark,...
Nikky: Alis..the scene with Luna and Whitney...SUPERB..PERFECTION!! I have never felt so much from a scene before. I absolutely love the scene where it shows Luna's shoulder with Whitney's passionate and lustful scratches proving to us, the audience, the desire she was feeling.
You have done...
Deltagamma.: In some cases it's better to ignore when it's more a matter of personal attacks rather than fair/objective critiques, so I don't want to bore other readers with boring/useless exchanges of words that would lead nowhere. I am always willing to respond critiques but I prefer to let go certain biases.
Nikky: I have to agree with you Lexi! Those three could put the sun to shame with how hot they would be! Whitney is absolutely amazing...her expressions really get me going. I wish I was the one making her make those faces *blushes*
hayley13: K and/or Jon,
Will we be getting an update for the 11th?
Sorry to post here Andrej and Ariel, I just did not know where else to post. By the way, I posted a comment for you guys on your film 'Try'. Just wanted to let you know, in case you find it somewhat useful and/or...
horsemaster: I do agree with you, Snowfall! I almost added a second quibble and that was the constraints the set presented. I didn't care all that much for the way the bars on the stairs had to be "shot around". And, yeah, the "perched on a barrel" posing was a bit constraining. But, what a performance, and what...
THOMAS: MICKAELA IS TRULY ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST GORGEOUS WOMEN. I'D LOVE TO SEE HER PAIRED WITH LORENA B!! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT THAT WOULD BE. KEEP IT UP.
horsemaster: Amirah and Franck are great. Luna and Whitney are even greater. What I want to know is how Luna and Franck are sharing the same bed, but they don't have any sex. Or at least we don't get to SEE any sex together. (maybe later?)
But here is what I want to know. What Le Luna has (at least...
fahkart: wow.. We're surprised at the detracting comments above. This is beautifully shot in natural lighting.. the golden light is lovely. Being indoors with no flash, large aperture/shallow depth of field is unavoidable - giving that soft bokkeh - and is apparent in most SA shoots to varying degrees. Lauren...
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.
