  • Snowfall1: I'm not so sure ... I think this might have been another of the writer's imaginings (and that's no bad thing), but became too long (also no bad thing!) or didn't move the story along. It stands alone really well

  • spacekase: Congratulations on the award and the thoughtful blog. The site really does deserve it.

    90% of the porn out there is really bad and most of the rest is just mediocre. The producers and talent of Sex Art put a lot of effort into what they do, and it shows. And of course the women are...

  • horsemaster: A home run! (or a futball hat trick, for non-baseball fans)! This series is going to be just a whole lot of fun. Wonderful pacing as the interview starts out sort of slow, but it builds and builds and builds into a beautiful climax. Amarna Miller is really cute, incredibly sexy and sexual. Welcome...

  • horsemaster: Yes. Agree. But, there ARE some lovely images here. When she DOES look at the camera, I am moved. And I remain a huge Michelle fan. More, please.

  • horsemaster: Fahkart is spot on in his observations. The ladies are absolutely gorgeous (and Tofana could have me at the snap of a finger!). The lighting is absolutely amazing (and when a bit dark, right in keeping with the rest of the scene) and right out of a Renaissance painting. This is very much erotic art...

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

Posted by Adam

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.
