Paul Black is still one of my favorite directors. Even if you do not like Paul's brooding creative nature, I'm not sure how you can't appreciate his films as true works of art.

It's good to have Locanta back on SexArt, his original home.

The simplicity of the scene is its power. As always, Tracy's screen presence is second to none.

Ariel's best interview to date, nice work. Ariel's becoming the Czech Barbara Walters, only way hotter :)
Wednesday, July 13th, 2016 on Anna Rose – SexArt’s sensational erotic actress
Hi Sydney, Mr. Llanberris recently shot this scene. We are happy to see him back at SexArt. Hopefully, we'll continue to see his work here at SexArt. At first, I was skeptical about Dana's performance because of her extensive background in the "industry." However, Dana was a delight to watch; she was smart, funny and incredibly sexy. In my opinion, this was nicely executed by Bo and his crew.
Lastly, your thoughts about how you'd produce a GLS are all valid points. I think all the Directors that shoot for the MetArt Network either self-taught or skilled graduates from AFI, like Llanberris, strive to create intimacy with all the models no matter what the storyline is. Unfortunately, this is not always as straightforward as it would seem. There are 100's of variables that make a scene work, or for that matter fail. For instance, you shoot a scene in the span of hours, not days. So, getting to know someone is compacted. Just Jasmine was shot over a few days, which allowed us more time to put it together. Budgetary restrictions do not permit us to do this on 95% of the shoots. Directors like Bo, have become very adept at getting as much as possible from the actors in the short time allowed.
All my best!

Thank you Rose, this is a great interview with Tracy Lindsay. If variety wasn't an obligatory requirement of running an adult entertainment website I would have Tracy on every shoot in the MetArt Network.
Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 on An interview with SexArt superstar Tracy Lindsay
(To everyone: Sydney emailed me personally a few weeks back, and I'm just finding the time it deserves to respond to his concerns. I've decided to copy my response here since what he wrote to me personally is all now here in public view.)
Excuse my slowness in getting back to you. I have been traveling with work since the beginning of the year non-stop.
I've read through all the comments, and I hear what you're saying. I do agree with some of your remarks you've made. I am making adjustments and currently interviewing Directors for SexArt and VivThomas. My team and I understand each site is more robust when you have a variety of creative visions. However, this process takes time. With that said, I would ask you as a friend, from someone who respects your insight on film to curtail some of your statements. I'm not censoring you, but you simply don't understand the multitude of complexities of running adult content sites. It's easy to scrutinize from your armchair, and it's another to be in the fray, getting bloody by the commercial blows the company has to endure every day.
You're wrong about MetArtX; it spawned from the countless member feedback wanting MetArt girls to do more explicit scenes. I know SexArt was supposed to fill this void, but it was never able to because of the graphic nature of the content. I am now traveling to Eastern Europe searching for MetArt quality models that will first shoot on MetArt and then the few models we can cultivate to transition into shooting MetArtX.
You bring up buying VivThomas as unnecessary. As I stated, a situation you don't understand. Buying Viv was 50% business and 50% helping Viv himself when he was very sick because of a fall he took a few years back. Luckily, Viv healed, and all is well now. However, in the moment, MetArt being who MetArt is, a compassionate company stepped in and helped Viv transition into retirement with the purchase of VivThomas.com. We were not interested in buying Viv at the time, but since VivThomas.com was already ingested into the MetArt Network, we felt it would be an easy takeover. We underestimated how much work it would be to take over a twenty-year-old company based in brick and mortar DVD sales. We are still adjusting and refining our ownership and get closer to taking Viv to a 100% digital sales driven company.
With regards to Andrej and Locanta being in their wrong places, I strongly disagree. Your problem lies strictly in the middle of a lack of variety. Which, to this point, I agree 100%. Andrej has become and extraordinary filmmaker, with subtleties of great mainstream Directors like Steven Soderberg. His shot-setups have been outstanding over the past year.
Locanta struggled with his debut on VivThomas.com because I directed him wrong. He took my direction verbatim, as Locanta always does, and it was not received well by long-standing VivThomas members. I loved the raw, handheld, quick cut style we launched with but I failed to understand the VivThomas member before we began. For that, I apologize. I should have taken more time learning Viv's style he developed over twenty years. Luckily, I had Rose and the rest of the VivThomas crew guide me back to where we are now and headed into the future.
I know all your comments come from a place of commitment to the MetArt Network. For that, I truly thank you. Having customers take the time to give detailed, thoughtful feedback is worth gold, as you can imagine. When Rose says, we are adjusting you can take that to heart, and not "customer-satisfaction" rhetoric.
I have learned a great deal about the adult industry since me, and my business partner took over MetArt in 2008. We were taught by the creator of MetArt the many philosophical differences of what made MetArt different. It was a recipe for making beautiful, artful erotica. No other adult producer has come close to MetArt and what it has achieved when it comes to the "art of erotica". I live by those principles to this day, at least I try. I am adjusting our productions consistently; my failures are my guidance to understanding the changes needed in running a better company from top to bottom.
I end with the acknowledgment of your and other members concerns, but I ask you to trust that we are listening and evolving based on what we know about running a successful production company against the needs of our fans. Remember, it's never black and white; it always lies somewhere in the middle.

Unfortunately, Melena only does solos scenes. However, we are doing our best to persuade her :)
Sunday, February 14th, 2016 on Melena A
I love this crew. These are some of the nicest, most sincere people I have ever met in my life. They're always positive, even in stressful times. They have helped shape the original vision of Sexart in more ways than one. From the first time I spoke to Andrej and Ariel they understood the nuances of why Sexart is different and why it was truly original and not just another website shooting "Glam-Porn". Their love for mainstream cinema continues to shine through their productions. Their understanding of Metart's philosophical approach to producing adult content has proved them to be one of Metart's most valuable assets.

Hello Sydney, This is not an act. Tracy actually came to full orgasm. Locanta is controlling a remote while Tracy has a vibrator inside her while she reads. :)
Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015 on Vox Episode 1
Hello par1351, The reason we shoot in 2.35:1 anamorphic/Cinemascope is completely based on our love for film. Furthermore, we are trying to give the audience a complete movie-going experience because this aesthetic is associated with higher end feature films. It is considered the most cinematic or filmic aspect ratio filmmakers use in their storytelling toolbox. It is my belief it's the best aspect ratio for dramatic narrative filmmaking, and it is why we use it here at Sexart.com. This is not to say that 2.35:1 is always the most appropriate aspect ratio to shoot in. I think TV and Documentaries should be filmed in 16:9 because that aspect ratio lends itself to a better viewing experience.
Wednesday, August 12th, 2015 on Beauty And Slacker
Andrej, APF and crew you "killed" this one. Technically it's what SEXART strives for. The nuances of cinema are found in every frame of this film. Emotionally, the suspension of disbelief leaves me invested into the connection portrayed on stage.
Monday, August 10th, 2015 on Rewarded
I agree Sydney. I'm planning her trip to visit team Locanta next.

It took me a while to understand what he was doing, but with time and maturation, I got there. I think Black is a genius. I honestly do.
Nice to see some creative diversity and a solo by the way Jon. Please bring us more!
Friday, August 11th, 2017 on Whore - The Day After
Well said, Jon.
Thanks for the clear and understandable explanation.
Sunday, May 15th, 2016 on Tarein
Thanks Jon. This is the reassurance I needed. I acknowledge that I've made some uninformed remarks and that I lacked a full understanding of the variety and complexity of situations of which I was speaking. I apologise for stepping out of line on the occasions I did.
Thanks for your response, Jon.
It would be a nice if there were a place where these types of community could occur outside the comments section of a random content update.
I know you probably mean nothing by that word 'unfortunately', but I would like to put my two cents in here if I may.
Solo films are incredibly unique in that they allow for the delivery of stories, ideas and themes that cannot be otherwise conveyed through the medium of g/g or b/g. Things such as self-love and self respect, embracing one's own distinct sexuality, exhibitionism, etc.
In 2014, SexArt was delivering one g, one g/g and one b/g per week. Yes, it served to diversify the content, but more importantly it served to diversify the stories, ideas and themes being delivered. As such, I can honestly label 2014 the most informative and educational year I've experienced in SexArt film.
We are yet to see a solo film in 2016, and in the past year I'd hazard a guess that SexArt delivered no more than roughly one per month. This, to me... is the TRULY unfortunate thing. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but it seems like SexArt aren't currently interested in delivering solo film, and/or do not currently have the proper emphasis on it's unique importance.
Losing Michaela and Sapphira was a sad day for SexArt. I of course do not know the behind-the-scenes story Jon, but on film I saw two talented young females dedicated to delivering truthful, powerful performances - I'd challenge you to watch 'Lonely' again and not feel or be moved.
In my eyes Melena fits the mold those girls laid down. More-overly though, in Melena I see a wonderful passion and commitment to creating true, important art... and yes, solo art. That's where she's most powerful and where she has the potential to not only leave a lasting mark, but inform and educate her audience in her own unique way.
What I'm urging/seeking clarification of, is that SexArt isn't undervaluing the importance of solo film AND it's solo performers... and that it's taking steps towards delivering more solo film. I'd also love to rest easy knowing that SexArt is actively seeking out and taking care of it's solo performers, i.e. simply asking (and in no way pressuring) them if they want to try their hand at g/g film - and further, that there are no repercussions for saying "no".
Thanks Jon. And just in case you're wondering, this is all written from the heart and with the best intentions. You know I care about SexArt and about the people involved.
Need to film other girls doing the same... reading with remote vibrator inside. Very sexy. There are two models I would love to see.
