Sex Workers Speak Out Against SESTA

About the author: Allison Leigh is a pornographer, producer, polyamorist, and professional kinkster. When sexuality is business, business is fun! 

Members of the sex work industry are up in arms about the recent US Senate vote on SESTA – the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, which passed March 21 with an overwhelming 97-2 vote. The bill is aimed at holding online service providers culpable for sex trafficking perpetrated or supported via their services, a moral argument that is easily supported at first glance. However, the reality of it is far more overarching. Internet advocates, sex workers, and their supporters are speaking out about SESTA’s pitfalls – namely that without protections for consensual sex work, it forces providers to effectively silence all talk of sex work online; it also potentially violates the First Amendment's protections of freedom of speech. The next step is likely a case to be brought before the Supreme Court, though by whom remains to be seen.

SESTA and its sister bill, FOSTA (now known as the SESTA-FOSTA package) are aimed at protecting victims of trafficking, but if allowed to take effect, will have devastating effects on the online communities that adult workers rely upon to stay safe. By gutting the Section 230 safe harbors of the Communications Decency Act, the legislation silences support networks that consensual sex workers use to share resources such as advice, support, and “bad date lists” that warn workers about violent or predatory clients. Instead of “making it easier for the government to target traffickers online,” the changes will create a new illegal activity – simply allowing people to talk about sex work at all.

In addition to its impact on sex workers, SESTA would affect online service providers and their customers. In the face of increased liability for their users, websites are likely to shut down their comments area, forums, message boards, blogs and chats. The danger is particularly real for adult sites, sex education sites, and social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, who would be vulnerable to prosecution for hosting adult workers’ accounts. The alternative isn’t much better; were these services to switch to unmoderated discussions, it would still make workers less safe – and provide a loophole for traffickers. 

Pornographic content is hardly safe either – though adult film actors are legally distinguished from sex workers in California and New Hampshire, they’re not in the rest of the United States, leaving adult sites and performers in the rest of the country open to being targeted, and encouraging camsites and other networks like tube sites to limit user uploads. In the wake of this further persecution, adult performers, sex workers, and porn sites are also likely to face another wave of broad-spectrum bans from banking and financial services, who have already historically shied away from the industry for fear of prosecution under the current maze of anti-trafficking laws.

One only needs to ask a sex worker about SESTA to understand why the bill is putting them in danger instead of aiding anti-trafficking efforts. “By removing our ability to safely discuss and screen clients, SESTA puts sex workers back on the streets and back in danger,” one worker tells me via email. “The more you make people hide away, the easier it is to hide criminal activity.” The numbers back her up — a 2017 Baylor University study of violence against women before and after Craigslist provided an “erotic services” section found a 17 percent decrease in female homicides, as well as a decrease in rape cases, because workers could talk to each other openly and screen for bad dates online.

Sex workers, adult websites, and internet free speech advocates such as the Free Speech Coalition are mobilizing strongly against the bill, taking to Twitter, Facebook, and their own broadcasts to implore their clients and fans to support their upcoming fight and speak out against SESTA. By conflating consensual sex work with sex trafficking, legislators seek to deny sex workers agency in their trade. In forcing workers further into hiding, SESTA-FOSTA creates a shadowy underbelly dangerous for sex workers, adult actors, and victims of sexual trafficking alike.

SexArt movie of the month: March 2018

Spring is for lovers, and here at SexArt, energy and arousal levels are rising along with the temperature! It’s been a terrific month for hot hook-ups, with fan favorites Linda Sweet and Alexis Crystal, frisky Asian cutie Katana and elegant beauty Lana Seymour all featuring, busty 18-year-old newcomer Angel Princess and her real life boyfriend making their debut, and the start of a glamorous new series, “Chateau,” filmed in a sumptuous location. It’s not easy to pick favorites with so much hotness on offer, but here’s my personal and entirely subjective top three movies of the month:

Emylia Argan is the name on everyone’s lips right now, a gorgeous busty brunette with womanly, sensual charisma. “Examine” is her second movie with luscious Asian star Paula Shy, and if anything it’s even more passionate and powerful than their first encounter, “Exploration.” Director Andrej Lupin lets these two uninhibited, sexually self-assured divas do what comes naturally, eating pussy avidly, intent on their own pleasure and each other’s. Emylia looks incredible as she rides Paula’s pretty face, her big boobs jiggling hypnotically. A must see for lovers of girls with impressive curves.

Sexy brunette Dominica Phoenix is a petite powerhouse, and in Andrej Lupin’s erotic exploration of a life-changing encounter, “My Story,” she talks to camera as she shares the details of her meeting with Michael Fly. She’s so charming, and her intimate connection with her partner is something quite special to watch, a vigorous and athletic fuck session that nonetheless conveys genuine chemistry and emotion.

But my absolute favorite movie of the month is “Remote Control,” starring stunning rising star Jia Lissa. Director Don Caravaggio has a knack for creating cute and involving stories, and here we see irresistible Jia following an unseen lover’s text directions as she goes to a country house. At first romantic and ethereally beautiful, things soon turn incandescent as the porcelain-pale redhead follows instructions to suck on a huge dildo and then fuck herself with it, impaling her tight pussy with its natural flame red bush on the immense mock cock. Deliciously naked, she rides another dildo to an orgasm that leaves her quivering, a picture of spectacular sexual satisfaction.   

So, did I pick your favorite SexArt movie of March 2018?

SexArt supermodel Gloria Sol reveals her hot fantasy!

Stunning erotic model Gloria Sol is one of SexArt’s top models, immensely popular ever since she made her debut appearance in 2016. To date she has been featured nine times on SexArt – and many more throughout the MetArt Network – and members are still begging for more. The gorgeous Ukrainian brunette has a beautiful face and flawless body, with perfect, naturally big breasts and an ass to die for. I have to confess I’m as besotted with this absolute goddess as the rest of you, and was delighted to get the opportunity to find out more about her…

Gloria, please tell us about yourself.

GS: I am 23 years old, and I am from Ukraine. Right now, I live between Thailand, Kiev and Germany. I am constantly traveling. I enjoy exercising, keeping fit and also hiking in nature. I like classic rock and anything pop. I have no pets as my lifestyle won’t allow it, but I love dogs! And cats.

What inspired you to get into nude modeling?

GS: I was inspired by seeing some classic works, sculpture and fine art – Greek art, mostly. I like photography a lot too, so I ended up posing for some artists in the Ukraine, Italy and Paris at the beginning of my career, and now I shoot full time as an erotic and fine art model.

What is your favorite thing about your appearance?

GS: Oh, I love my body shape and that I am very petite. I love my boobs, I think they are the perfect size, and I also like my feet. I work out every day and I also started to practice yoga.

Do you enjoy making movies?

GS: I do, though it depends on the artist and script. Sometimes I will embrace a project as I love the idea, but sometimes I just can’t see me as the subject so I will politely decline.

Do you like to watch your own movies?

GS: No! I get very shy. I know I did a great job as I can move very well and have a great mix of expressions, but I generally don’t watch my movies. I haven’t done a lot actually. Basically just soft, glamorous videos. [You can see two delightful movies of Gloria on our sister site, MetArt].

How would you describe your personality?

GS: I am bubbly but very professional. I take my work very seriously. I am a straightforward person, which helps a lot.

Are you a romantic?

GS: Honestly, no. I like to be pampered, obviously, but I am very independent and I rely on myself for a living, so I am generally not romantic and more of a practical person.

Are you an exhibitionist?

GS: Yes, I am. I love to be watched and photographed and I love to be desired. It feels good to work as a model. I am also a nudist and I like to be naked all the time. I hate to have to wear a bra, I think they’re pretty but never comfortable. I like cotton undies if I have to wear something.

Do you have a high sex drive?

GS: I would say I like sex like anybody else. I am more driven by a voyeuristic nature, and that’s sex driven anyway.

Are you more dominant or submissive?

GS: As much as I am dominant in life, business and so on, I’m more submissive sexually…

Are you bisexual?

GS: I don’t know!

What kind of man do you like?

GS: Funny, no doubt about it. I also like intelligent guys and uncomplicated ones. Easy going people. I have enough drama on my own. I love creative men. I love spontaneous, fun, kinky and daring men.

What turns you on?

GS: A lot of things turn me on! Depends on the situation. Sometimes watching people, sometimes being watched…

Where is the most unusual place you’ve ever had sex?

GS: I can’t divulge. But it was overrated. I could get in trouble by sharing it here! I have done it in a public place; I was going for a job interview some years ago, I had just turned 18 and I remember my boyfriend was giving me a ride to the place I was going to be interviewed. I was wearing a very cute outfit and he got turned on. I told him I couldn’t do anything as I had the interview but… nothing would stop him! We ended up having sex in the parking lot of the company’s building and after that I went to the interview… still sweaty! I got the job!

Do you like to masturbate?

GS: Yes, I use toys. I love toys. I also use my fingers. When in Paris I use my bidet.

What is your favorite sexual fantasy?

GS: I dream about being in a very remote place, like an island where everybody is naked, and at night a big fire is set on the beach and people can go there to swim at night and massage each other. At some point, I have my eyes covered and I have to trust these people that will take me on a boat to a secret spot and I know absolutely nothing about where they will take me but I go anyway. I can feel many hands touching my entire body, but I can’t see anything. My heart is beating really fast. I hear some voices but I can’t understand the language. I also feel some wet things like tongues licking me and someone is holding my hands and taking me to a room. It’s warm there and cozy and I can hear many voices but they are mostly like sexual sounds. At this point I am breathing very intensely and I can touch a chair where I am being positioned with my knees and hands down and it’s not really a chair, it’s like a table with handles and I am on my hands and knees, with my ass up high... fully exposed. I feel people breathing around me and whispering in my ears and pulling my hair... and it hurts. I am so excited at this point that I start to pee all over myself and the table. I feel someone licking my legs where the pee is running free. I am completely turned on and I can feel a woman next to me as her nipples touch my face and I also can smell her armpits… It smells very sexy, like sweet sweaty. At this point I am also very, very turned on so I can’t really relax and well, this fantasy goes on and on and on…

Have you ever had a threesome?

GS: Yes. It was hot… I was actually sleeping over at a friend’s place, we were addicted to a series and spent all weekend watching all the episodes. I wasn’t expecting anything but another friend stopped by and it was my friend’s ex and they’re still great friends. We were introduced and I instantly felt attracted but never said anything. So the “friend” decided to stay over too and we decided to spend the weekend just watching the series and having some laughs and it was late at night when someone suggested the “truth or dare” game. I wasn’t wearing any panties but I had my shorts on and I also did not have a bra on, as who would wear a bra at your best friend’s home, right? So, it started a little awkward as it was cold and he asked me if I was turned on, looking at my boobs, and I instantly blushed. We started playing and let’s say also that I wanted to avoid sharing a lot of “truths” so I did more dares, and the first dare was to suck my friend’s tongue. It was hot and wet. We ended up doing many dares together and spending a hot and unforgettable night. You can imagine the rest!

Did you ever try anything really naughty?

GS: Mmmm… Yes! Yes! Yes! Many times… I like to be naughty!

What are your ambitions?

GS: My ambitions are normal, I would like to work a lot and make enough money to support a great lifestyle. I love traveling and I like good things, well-made and well-designed things. I like eating very well, organic and healthy food. I like taking care of my body. A good house, a summer cottage, being able to wake up at the time I decide – it’s a big thing – and also obviously being able to support my family.

Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?

GS: I have some news! I will be on the cover of Goodies Magazine, it’s a limited edition magazine created by a team from LA that travels the world creating erotic nude art, the images are shot by Willow Art and I’m very excited about the magazine coming out. I am also traveling to Greece in April and May to shoot. My agent Penelope organizes all my shoots and my fans communicate with her more than with me as I can’t really answer all requests and that’s why I have Penny.

I’d love for my fans to follow me on Twitter and Instagram, and on MetArt, MetArt X and SexArt, of course!

The American Crusade Against Porn

About the author: Allison Leigh is a pornographer, producer, polyamorist, and professional kinkster. When sexuality is business, business is fun! 

Guns, God, and “good ol’ boys” – the United States evokes a certain image. With liberal coasts divided by a broad band of socially conservative states, the US has a reputation for being the redneck “man’s man” of the world; so why are so many states trying to curtail pornography? In this age where over 30 percent of data transmitted over the internet is adult entertainment, what effect would a moratorium on erotic images and videos have?

In a voice vote that has attracted much scrutiny, the Florida House of Representatives passed a resolution recently declaring porn a “public health risk” that “states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.” It stands out in a bleak contrast to the same House’s overwhelming “no” to an assault rifle ban, a decision that was debated for a brief three minutes earlier that session, just days after a shooting at a high school in Broward, Florida that took 17 lives. Surely guns are more of a threat to public health than erotica?

Florida’s decision is not without precedent. In April of 2016, Utah passed a similar resolution through their legislature, and before that, the conservative state created the position widely referred to as a “Porn Czar” to oversee complaints and issues arising from erotic entertainment. Both Florida and Utah’s non binding resolutions could be considered challenges to the First Amendment decision reached in 1973’s Miller v. California, in which the Supreme Court found that erotic materials could only be restricted if they met three requirements applying community standards of offensiveness, with final say being given to the courts to determine if the work lacks “serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.”

Attorney General candidate and Florida Representative Ross Spano (R) said, “there is research that finds a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior.” However, psychologists working in the field disagree; Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health associate professor Eric Schrimshaw told CNN that “...Evidence also suggests that it is not pornography in general that may be correlated with potential negative outcomes.”

Scapegoating porn and “porn addiction” as a catch-all for intimacy problems has become a commonplace topic amongst moral conservatives. However, the stigma against enjoying adult entertainment may prove to be far more harmful to the psyche. Research performed by Joshua Grubbs of Case Western shows that “seeing oneself as a porn addict is predicted not by how much porn one views, but by the degree of religiosity and moral attitudes towards sex.” Now, Grubbs has published explosive follow-up research, demonstrating that believing oneself is addicted to porn actually causes pain and psychological problems, in contrast to the idea that identifying as a porn addict is a step on the road to recovery.

Sexuality is an integral part of the human experience, and enjoyment of eroticism is a healthy part of that. Far from simply being a way to privately blow off steam, studies suggest that viewing erotic materials leads to increased arousability and higher sex drive throughout life, a fact that should surprise exactly no one who watches porn. 40 million Americans are self-described pornography users; in reality the number is likely far higher, skewed by social stigma against the habit. Erotica has been a part of human life since the Paleolithic era, and puritanical edicts like the ones from Florida and Utah do nothing for public health, save to damage our collective sexual psyche.

Can’t wait to get you home

Erotic fiction inspired by Emylia Argan and Sabrisse A in “Be Together

Out with my girl Emylia for a walk in the woods, I spent most of the time wet with desire for her. She was wearing the tiniest butt-hugging denim shorts, and I couldn’t take my eyes off her. That’s the thing about Em, she’s sexy without even trying. As we walked along the dusty path I was struggling to keep my hands off her too. I could tell she knew it, the way she walked beside me, letting my arm wrap around her waist as she snuggled up next to me. But Em’s not into public displays of affection, although that’s never stopped me from trying it on.

We reached a small lake in a secluded area and sat down, Em sitting between my knees and resting her back on my chest. Now, with her body pressed up against my breasts and her crotch within easy reaching distance, I just couldn’t resist kissing her neck and running my hands over her body.

Incredibly, she responded, turning around to kiss me, then pulling me to my feet as she stood up. She pushed me back against a tree and we kissed harder. She ran her hands over my hips and lifted my skirt, to touch me between my legs.

“Let’s go home,” she whispered in my ear, then turned and walked back up the path.

I knew I couldn’t get her to make out with me in the woods, but I wasn’t going to refuse that invitation; my pussy juices were already trickling out between my lips, soaking my panties. We headed back to the car and drove home quickly. 

Back at our apartment, I took Em straight to bed, both of us stripping down to our underwear. Em lay beside me and stroked my bare skin sensuously.

“Did my little teasing back there turn you on?” she asked, smiling.

“Like you wouldn’t believe, baby,” I purred, pushing her back onto the bed and kissing her, my tongue darting between her lips. She helped me out of my bra and panties, kissing my breasts, sucking my sensitive nipples and then pulling me on top of her, straddling her face.

I pressed my shaved pussy onto her tongue and she lapped at my slit, spreading my juices over my clitoris. I had been waiting for her to focus on my pussy since she first made me wet back by the lake, and her tongue felt incredible. I had to grip the bedframe tightly as she licked me, and she soon had me bucking back and forth over her face.

I wanted to fuck her face, to ride her tongue until I had covered her beautiful features in my cream, and Em seemed to want it too. Her mouth worked hard at making me wetter, her tongue flattening as I rode her face, her lips surrounding my clit and pussy lips, sucking me gently into her mouth.

When she had me shivering on the edge of a climax, she wriggled out from beneath me and came up behind me, kissing my neck and gripping my hips. Her mouth worked its way down my spine, making me tingle with excitement. I felt her fingers creep over my ass and she plunged two inside my pussy. It felt sensational. With one hand, she fucked me from behind, while the other slid around me to find my clit. I was so wet and so horny that I had to grab her wrist and work her fingers over my clit rapidly, as I ground myself hard against her.

I came then, loudly, my legs trembling, my pussy utterly at her mercy. I sank down onto the bed and looked up at Em adoringly. She was so sexy when she smiled like that, so happy that she could bring me such pleasure. She had that expectant look in her eye, telling me she expected me to lavish just as much attention on her.

Now that my wild lust had subsided, I could slow things down a little and take my time to satisfy her. I lay Em on her back as she wriggled out of her underwear, and kissed my way down her body until my tongue found her pussy, tasting her wetness, parting her lips to lick between them. She laughed as my tongue teased her clit, then gasped as I slipped two fingers inside her.

I love her beautiful pussy, and really get off on fingering her. I like to get close and watch her lips spread open around my wet fingers as I fuck her. Her folds part and her moans grow louder and more insistent. I know when she’s ready to cum because she always has to touch herself, and today she was quick to rub her clitoris as I frigged her.

I think eating my pussy had already made her so aroused that it didn’t take me long to get her off with my tongue and fingers. I knelt between her thighs and watched her hand as it blurred over her clit, my fingers pushed deep inside her, her hips bucking up as she exploded before me. After that we kissed and cuddled for a while, until we were ready to start all over again. I can never get enough of her.

Porn and the fight for racial equality: the adult industry drops racism and learns respect

About the author: Allison Leigh is a pornographer, producer, polyamorist, and professional kinkster. When sexuality is business, business is fun! 

While the rest of the world strives to move forward on racial issues, the usually progressive adult industry appears to be one of the last bastions of normalized racial inequality. It is only via movement from within that any change can be made – and it is finally happening, as seen here on SexArt and across the industry as a whole.

You may be asking yourself what’s wrong with the categorization of “interracial porn,” and at a glance, the answer is nothing – there’s certainly nothing at all wrong with people of different races having sex, or with enjoying watching this. Indeed, the visual effect of skin on skin can be heightened in the most beautiful and erotic way when the performers are of different races and contrasting skin colors. 

However, in the adult industry, “Interracial” or “IR” is only used to refer to performers of African descent – a sinister shadow of what’s inside such an innocuous brown paper bag. IR scenes typically feature a white actress with a black actor, reflecting the supposed “taboo” of “defiling” a white woman. Black actors are frequently steered towards stereotypical modes of behavior too, expected to be play dominant, macho and rough with their female partners. When a black actress is used with white actors, the themes tend toward the idea of white dominance – a disturbing extension of colonization.

The problems do not end with the fact that IR scenes harken back to ugly stereotypes. Outside of perpetuating societal issues, IR porn perpetuates inequality within the industry itself. In the scale of graduated taboos that dictates standard pay, a white actress can typically receive almost double for her first interracial scene. This boon, naturally, does not carry over to her black peers. Black actors get paid roughly the same amount as white actors, but get less work because they are considered less marketable. Black women have it worse, reporting half to three-quarters of the check that white women are awarded for the same work. Black actresses aren’t even afforded the same escalated scale of taboos that white actresses are, and often have to enter the industry performing far more extreme acts than their nonblack counterparts.

Many adult entertainment companies have taken notice and changed their policies, putting away the confederate flags, releasing less problematic titles and taking action to ensure performer equality. The progressive side of the industry is tired of being a part of the problem, and is taking steps for change. When an interracial title won the AVN award for “Clever Porn Title” while simultaneously lancing the progressive Black Lives Matter movement, performers and producers started speaking out in numbers. The tone-deaf move on the part of Adult Video News – usually a respected representative of the industry – was lambasted across twitter, with several performers going so far as to take a hiatus from adult films until the industry changes its tune.

It is arguably not the responsibility of pornography to educate. Erotica is entertainment, intended to tease and please you, to provide an outlet for sexual fantasy and exploration. However, we should acknowledge the role we can play in challenging stereotypes, in promoting equality, and in producing erotica we can be proud of.

Here at SexArt, we are committed to actively seeking out diversity, embracing our models as multifaceted performers rather than forcing them into preconceived notions of how they should behave. We hope we have been successful with this, particularly in director Alis Locanta’s work with male star Jesús Reyes, which allows him to explore his sensitive and tender side rather than shoehorning him into the role of brutish black stud. Likewise, director Andrej Lupin and producer Ariel Piper Fawn have successfully recruited ethnically diverse female models such as Katana, Sade Rose, Luna Corazon, Myiuki Son and Isabella Chrystin. One obstacle we have encountered is that in Europe, where most of our production teams operate, it seems far fewer nonwhite performers enter the industry, perhaps as a result of the prejudice they fear they will encounter. We hope members will continue to make us aware of gorgeous male and female performers of all ethnicities who you would like to see us feature.

SexArt movie of the month: February 2018

February may be the month of love, but here at SexArt it’s also the month of irresistible passion, sexual chemistry and mutual attraction! There’s been an abundance of hot movies to get the juices flowing, from the tender togetherness of gorgeous Vanessa Decker and Morgan Rodriguez in “Movie Night” to the kinky BDSM games of hot redhead Linda Sweet and Maxmilian Dior in the two part series “Her/His Hidden Desire.” Special mention must go to Rebecca Volpetti in her first boy-girl movie for SexArt, “Countryside” – this cute little brunette is absolutely adorable, and clearly having a whole lot of fun with Pavlos; she’s charming as well as super arousing to watch.

It’s not easy to pick favorites with so much to choose from, but here’s my personal and entirely subjective top three movies of the month:

Summer Vibes” is the third movie that Cherry Kiss and Maxmilian Dior have made together, and their energetic, athletic coupling is so natural – it feels like all director Andrej Lupin has to do is stand back and let them tear into each other! They are playful, wild, amorous and utterly focused on giving each other intense pleasure; and of course it doesn’t hurt that Max has the ideal gym-honed physique, and blonde bombshell Cherry looks incredible.

There’s powerful chemistry between Crystal Caitlin and Juan Lucho in Alis Locanta’s “Que Es La Pasion 3” too, but here it feels more like unrestrained animal lust! It starts on a very hot note for me, with sexy tattooed stud Juan speaking in his native Spanish, and turns into an insatiable, uninhibited fuckfest. Crystal is always a stellar performer, but here she takes it to a whole new level, sucking Juan’s huge cock deep and hard, riding it vigorously, and swallowing his hot cumload with relish. 

But my absolute favorite movie of the month is “Boudoir.” Directed by Andrej Lupin and starring Katrina Moreno and Verona Sky, it’s a beautiful, romantic and very sexy liaison between two stunning brunettes in glamorous black lingerie, stockings and heels. Busty Katrina has never looked better than she does standing over pretty Verona’s face, getting her pussy eaten; and the jiggle factor of those fabulous big breasts and curvy ass is quite spectacular. It’s a sensational slow-burner of a movie, a turn on from the first ardent kisses to their tempestuous orgasms. 

So, did I pick your favorite SexArt movie of February 2018?

Faking a headache: is there a gender gap when it comes to sexual desire?

About the author: Allison Leigh is a pornographer, producer, polyamorist, and professional kinkster. When sexuality is business, business is fun! 

The oversexed fraternity brother, the pushy husband, the housewife who feigns a headache –familiar stereotypes, derived from an assumption that men have a higher sex drive than women. But is that truly the case?

The idea that most women have a lower sex drive than men is socially ingrained. It features in our cultural tropes, mirroring how it features in our daily lives – a culture where women deny their sexual desires, and many men feel that aggressive pursuit of sex is the only way to obtain it. Women’s lack of desire for sex, especially as they get older, is treated as an innate fact that men must overcome.

At a superficial glance, statistics appear to back this up – by a small margin, men do report higher sexual desire, activity, and more permissive attitudes toward sex. However, a ten-year meta study conducted by University of Wisconsin, Madison found that these results are closely tied to social factors, including age, race, and religion, indicating that sociocultural attitudes toward sex are what leads to the gender gap when it comes to sexual desire.

Psychologists Janet Hyde and Jennifer L. Petersen analyzed more than 800 sexuality studies over a period of 15 years. Their abstract states that they found “that men reported slightly more sexual experience and more permissive attitudes than women for most of the variables. However... most gender differences in sexual attitudes and behaviors were small. Exceptions were masturbation incidence, pornography use, casual sex, and attitudes toward casual sex... nations and ethnic groups with greater gender equity had smaller gender differences for some reported sexual behaviors than nations and ethnic groups with less gender equity.” Furthermore, they found that while a woman’s sex drive may decrease over time, this correlated more strongly with monogamy than with age.

With these facts in mind, it is time to discard the notion that women have an inherently lower sex drive than men – and instead turn a critical eye toward a culture that encourages disparity between genders, sexual violence, and judgmental behaviors such as ‘slut shaming’ for women who are openly sexual.

Women are challenging gender inequity in many arenas, with recent movements such as the SlutWalk, #MeToo and Time’s Up just the most visible and vocal examples of a drive to turn the spotlight on outdated and harmful stereotypes and behaviors. Women are reclaiming the right to explore and express their sexual desires freely, without fear of recrimination; and what could be hotter than a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to claim it as her right?

Here at SexArt, we love to see women taking charge, expressing themselves sexually in whatever way comes naturally. Alexis Crystal in the film “Listen To Me” is a great example; she takes the initiative, demanding her man’s attention with a sensual footjob before getting him into a passionate 69 and riding his cock, bathed in the beautiful sunlight. Her happy smile and uninhibited moans make it clear that she’s utterly in the moment, experiencing physical pleasure and – just as importantly – the freedom to express it. Perhaps if society allowed all women to feel that it was safe to be their true sexual selves, no one would feel the need to fake a headache again.

Erotic model Belle Claire shares her secrets with SexArt

Stunning Belle Claire is one of SexArt’s most popular erotic models, a gorgeous girl whose vivacious presence lights up the screen in every movie she makes. Whether with male or female partners, Belle’s flirty, playful manner and vigorous sexual appetite makes for compelling viewing. And let’s not forget her physical beauty: with gorgeous brown eyes, a dazzling smile and a slender, athletic physique that supports surprisingly big, natural breasts, she’s simply irresistible.

Belle has 14 movies to date on SexArt, all shot with director Andrej Lupin. “Touch and Feel” with Sybil A is particularly lovely, a tactile and sensuous liaison, while in three-girl movie “Teacher” we get to hear her sexy voice as she directs the action. In “Punish Me” she explores her kinky side, but my personal favorite is her most recent, “Stay Alone,” which pairs her with Kristof Cale for some energetic sex and a moving story. I was delighted to learn more about this delightful star…

Belle Claire, please tell us about yourself.

BC: Well, I’m turning 25 in May, I come from Prague in the Czech Republic and I have been living there my whole life. Since I’ve had a very busy shooting schedule for the last couple of years, I enjoy spending my free time with my beloved family – my partner, lovely daughter and sweet bullmastiff named Dexter. 

What inspired you to get into nude modeling?

BC: Actually, I didn’t plan to start nude modeling at first. I started as a fashion and glamour model, and over time people convinced me that it’s much more fun to do nudes, so I tried my first couple of sets and kind of stayed around it for over five years.

What is your favorite thing about working in the adult entertainment industry?

BC: Feedback from my fans, for sure. I’ve always loved being the center of attention and this job has made me a dream girl for so many people all over the world that I feel needed – and that makes me very happy. 

How do you keep in such good shape?

BC: Always the same question, always the same answer – no idea! I got this slim gene from my mother, and all I do is eat whatever and have a super busy life – that’s the best exercise you can possibly get. 

How long have you been making films?

BC: I have been making nude and erotic films for over five years. I’ve always loved three things about it: traveling, meeting interesting people, and the fun we have backstage!

Do you like to watch your own movies? 

BC: I always love to watch myself during the storyline for a little bit of the old self-criticism, but when it comes to the harder parts of the film, I skip. 

How would you describe your personality?

BC: Well, people who know me would say that I always have my head in the clouds, I am creative, smiling all the time no matter what situation I am in. I love my close ones to death and I would do absolutely anything to make them happy. I am always trying to do stuff to help others – currently I have opened my home to abused dogs waiting for a new loving family, which I am very careful choosing. And the downsides? I am a little insecure, sometimes I do things faster than I actually think about them, and I make loads of mistakes because of that. And, of course, if someone hurts me or my family, I can be very cruel. 

Are you a romantic person?

BC: Actually yes, I am a very romantic and naive person, but there are only few people in the world that know me like that.

Are you an exhibitionist?

BC: I’m the exact opposite; I am a very shy person. I know that it doesn’t really match my career in this industry, but I feel that way even when I go to the doctors. There are only a few outside shoots with me, and I can tell you, I was super shy and scared that someone would see me. But for some reason, when the door’s closed, I can be very outrageous!

Do you have a high sex drive?

BC: When I’m with the right person, absolutely.

Are you more dominant or more submissive?

BC: I enjoy myself in both roles, but I’ve never been an extreme type of either. 

Did you ever have sex with a girl in your personal life before you started to make movies? Are you bisexual?

BC: No, no, no. I might disappoint loads of you, but I like MEN!

What kind of man do you like?

BC: A man can always impress me with his character, his ability to make me laugh and make me feel protected.

Where is the most unusual place you’ve ever had sex?

BC: When I was in my teens, I did a few seconds of sex on public transport, on the underground to be precise. But only because there was barely anyone there. The rest is mainly the classic “unusual” – the forest, a tent, showers, changing rooms, and so on.

Do you like to masturbate?

BC: I do, when it’s absolutely necessary! I have this little clitoris vibrator, so I just snuggle up in my bed, close my eyes and use my secret fantasies. But if I told you about that, it would not be a secret anymore!

Have you ever had a threesome?

BC: No, never. But I kind of played with the idea of having two men by my side when I was younger. But after all my professional experience, I don’t really need to think about it anymore.

Do you believe in open relationships?

BC: To be honest, no. An open relationship for me is just an excuse to cheat and not feel guilty about it. 

Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?

BC: First of all, I would love to thank you all for all the love and support you have given me over the years. There is no better feeling than knowing that I DO IT FOR A PURPOSE! I read every comment, all the feedback, every tweet, and I will always be grateful for them, for you. I hope you will enjoy my upcoming scenes and remember me in my best ones, as I do not plan to shoot any more in the future. I wish you all the best in life, fulfilling your dreams, being super happy and super healthy! Love, Belle x

SexArt movie of the month: January 2018

Favorite is such a subjective word, especially when it comes to sex – what floats the boat is a very personal thing, tied up with triggering all kinds of memories, preferences and visual cues. But we can all recognize quality when it comes to good movies, and January 2018 has been a fine month for top class action here at SexArt.

We’ve seen some gorgeous girls in the “Chasing Men” series – Elena Vega, Morgan Rodriguez, Linda Sweet and the scorching hot Katy Rose – and the sensational return of everyone’s dream redhead, Ariel Piper Fawn, in retro movie “Road Trip,” a fun lesbian romp you certainly wont want to miss. Emylia Argan’s deliciously romantic and passionate liaison with adorable Sabrisse in “Be Together” is another scorcher, making it tough to narrow down my selection; but anyway, here’s my personal and entirely subjective top three movies of the month:

Andrej Lupin’s “Pure,” featuring Henessy A and Lana Seymour, takes the concept that white is the color of innocence and purity and runs with it. There’s a sense of natural wonder about their encounter that makes it seem very loving and spiritual; that said, it’s also intensely arousing, the intimate physical and emotional chemistry between the pair so powerful it’s impossible to tear your eyes from the screen. Members described it as “gorgeous, one of the best girl-girl scenes on the Network”; the fact that both girls are absolutely stunning and utterly uninhibited certainly doesn’t hurt. And let’s face it, white panties turn everyone on, particularly when the fingers slipping inside them do not belong to their owner!

My second choice, “Garden,” is very much to my taste. Sexy Cherry Kiss has the look of an A-list Hollywood celebrity with her blonde hair, fabulous figure and dark shades; she’s a total knockout. I’ve loved all her movies but this is my favorite so far. She and Maxmilian Dior are sensational together, energetic and athletic as they fuck hard in the sun. Max has the perfect physique and knows how to use it, drilling Cherry vigorously, and she gives as good as she gets. It’s super hot… earthly delights indeed!

But the stand out SexArt movie for me this month has to be “Stay Alone.” It opens with the jaw-dropping sight of beautiful Belle Claire stripping out of her dress and diving naked into the pool, and it just gets better from there. Kristof Cale’s acting is excellent as the man mourning the loss of his lover, but there’s no acting required when it comes to the sex – who could resist a girl so hot? She has the most amazing natural breasts, surprisingly big on her slender frame, and a smile that would melt any heart. The scene in the bathroom with her panties around her thighs is electric. Poetry in motion, with Team Lupin once again showing their mastery when it comes to blending sex and story.

So, did I pick your favorite SexArt movie of January 2018?

    I was really looking forward to Maxmilian Dior ending his superb fucking with creampie, only to be cheated with a facial. Great scene with a disappointing ending, sorry to say.
