Normally the question needn't even be asked because the answer is always Tracy, but we didn't actually get all that much of her this year... in which case I have to say Alexis Crystal.

Friday, November 3rd, 2017 on Docu-Film
We had to wait almost a year for this to happen, but finally it did, and boy was it worth the wait. I said from the start Sabrisse would be a perfect match for Team A&A, and she was pretty darn close to it. This is the most comfortable I've seen her on screen and the most genuine performance she's given anywhere to date - kudos Team A&A. There's still room for improvement for her, but I think with time and familiarity with the team, she'll open up more. Physically, she's one of the beautiful girls working today, but it's her eyes, smile and energy that makes her special. Don has captured her personality well in his photography, though no one to date has translated it particularly well on film. This is the challenge for you Team A&A - you're the most adept and capable team at doing this because the environment of warmth, fun and love you create on set translates into your films well.
Additionally, I'd like to praise recent films like My Vision, Just A Dream, Exploration and Conversation. While they are all using what is essentially the same concept.... they are using a concept. It adds a little more layer to film, and something sexy and cerebral. I'd encourage you to continue to produce films like this.
Thank you Team A&A, Sabrisse and Paula.

Really gorgeous film, but god that lighting is horrible for highlighting imperfections. Not to be repeated methinks.
Sunday, October 29th, 2017 on Just A Dream
Cool film and great chemistry! There was one camera angle that should have been left on the editing room floor though - over the head of Cherry, roughly 9:00-10:00 - it distracted from the mood and intimacy established, and it took a little while to get back there. I can't help but too wonder what might have been if you'd stayed outdoors with that beautiful piece of music crescendoing and de-crescendoing throughout... I imagine "majestical" things ;) Now I know I'm being harsh, especially given that this is one of the better films I've seen this year, but there's always room for improvement somewhere :) Thanks Team A&A
Sunday, October 15th, 2017 on Warmth Of The Sun
My automatic reaction to this, is that it's the best photoset I've seen this year! Maybe on reflection something will top it, but right now... this is perfection. Such a wide variety of shots and angles and all of Paula's strengths are featured impeccably. Wow! Just wow! Erro, this is why you'll always be my favourite!

Great film. Best I've seen in ages!
Two faults though:
1. Rarely is there involvement of all three participants simultaneously. So much of this is a couple plus observer/masturbator. Maybe some more planning of positions, or a bedroom location?
2. Almost everything is male-oriented. The girls don't experiment between themselves beyond kissing and... can we count that as a lick?
Otherwise well done Team A&A. One of your best films this year.

Best SexArt film I've seen in ages! Dido is a freakin' superstar, we all know that, but Sybil... at last, after 8 g/g features, she's come into her own! All tongue and no fingers, and she never lifted away until she made her blondie cum! That made me 'Believe in Love', and that's what I want to see so much more of! And that eye contact from 21:49-21:55 - that was chemistry; genuine, passionate, beautiful chemistry. Sybil looks so happy and proud of herself in that moment, and girl, you should be! Keep delivering performances like this and make us all proud :)

Alexis continues to approach 'Nella' and 'Malena Morgan' status with each g/g film I see. This is a nice little movie, though I'd love to see Alexis paired with Top Models who can match and/or create an interesting dynamic against her energy.
Saturday, June 24th, 2017 on Crazy Day
I agree with the first part of your comment Renegade - I can't back the second part though.
I'm just really disappointed in SexArt because... I made this point at the beginning of the year and said their ratios were WAY wrong. Last year we consistently had more B/G, we had like 2-3 legit solos and no G/G series or mini-series. I went on to say that it wasn't good enough, and that it needed to be fixed. Basically I got what Rose says below, a "we'll endeavour to do better" and a "wait til you see all the exciting things we have in store". Well... here I am halfway into the year and all evidence points me toward that stuff being empty promises designed to keep me around. There's still more B/G, 1 measly solo and not a single G/G series or mini-series in sight. It's poor form. REALLY poor form.
Now... don't even get me started on variety of artists. You've got Locanta contributing maybe once a month and ONLY B/G?!? No Black, Zakari... even Chalk yet. Seriously, why are we not RE-strenghening our values and identity. Why are we letting shit snowball?!? You guys are limiting yourselves. You're limiting yourselves in terms of story, concept, theme, art, VISION!
You've really lost your way... and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

It's just more of the same from Nancy, and I couldn't get into this one either because of it.
Friday, April 14th, 2017 on Fight For Love
Only 'Moonlight' rivals this for best-made SexArt film this year.
There's so much attention to detail, I'm actually blown away. Not only are the girls perfectly cast opposite each other; but the positions, the camera angles, the editing... it all coalesces to illustrate/celebrate the best features and unique beauty of each. Never has either girls ass or legs been showcased like this before - and to the detriment of everything else thats's come before this I might add.
There's just an enough art and theme there to keep me intrigued also, but certainly, I think there was plenty of room to dive deeper. Perhaps you could have had multiple songs feature as part of the score, each conjuring it's own set of emotions and transporting the girls into uniquely different way of lovemaking. Physically, I was intrigued by the dichotomy of the girls similarities (body shape/type) and differences (blonde vs. black), and I think that could have been used symbolically also. Anyway... brief ideas that haven't been fully thought-out, but you see my point.
Mostly I'd just like to say thank you and mention three things.
1. When you leave the unwelcome voyeur shots where they belong, you guys dance with perfection.
2. Dido and the legends: Iwia, Whitney, Lorena, etc. They're always welcome here and personally, I wish you guys would bring them back a HECK of a lot more often than what you do! New girls have there place too, but there's a reason this film stands above the rest and a GREAT deal of it has to do with the performance of the experienced, mature models in it.
3. Further... Perhaps show this to our younger girls (Nancy, you jump straight into my head) and tell them to pay attention to authentic, honest, genuine way in which these girls lick each other
That is all. Thank you again :)
Sunday, April 9th, 2017 on Cassette
At about 9mins through I said to myself, "I swear to God, if Nancy pulls her mouth off Sybil's pussy one more time I'm giving up!" 10mins through I'd convinced myself 4 times to keep trying. At 11mins I simply couldn't handle it anymore and I gave up. That's not intimacy, it's not passion and it's NOT TRUE!
From everything I've seen her in to date, Nancy has failed to convince me she's capable of giving an honest performance as a lesbian actress. She's stunning, she seems like a great girl, her photosets are gorgeous, her films with her partner Martin are excellent 'couples' films, maybe she has untapped potential in solo films [who knows cause we haven't bloody tried]. My point... unless someone one can direct her with regards to her performance in g/g films, I'd encourage you guys to direct her towards those other paths mentioned, because as it currently stands this one is just frustrating to watch.
With regards to the filmmaking... other than the usual voyeur shots that simply DO NOT belong, I actually thought it was excellent - what I watched of it anyway.
Forgive me for this outburst - the only reason I post it is because there's probably a lot of unrestrained honesty in it. I hope it doesn't offend anyone too much and that if it does we can write it off as a temper tantrum... it has been a big week :(

What's the rationale behind it?
What's the rationale for cost?
How regularly will films of this nature be released?
Tuesday, February 21st, 2017 on Eolia
Hey Kirst :) I thought that a little too. To me though the cinematography is all Lupin 2.0, but the atmosphere created particularly by the lighting and score (somewhat), as well as the story, editing and construction of the scene... I could have easily mistaken it for Alis' work. I like that though! Both directors have their own strengths and weaknesses, typically Lupin: Sex and Locanta: Art; it's nice when they take a page from each others book and deliver us SexArt.
With reference to Lupin 2.0: I'm stoked to see a better understanding of quadrants, less panning and dynamic movements, less cluttering of the foreground, better focus and a balance of shot types, now including extreme close-ups. It's not only a significant improvement in the quality of the filmmaking, but it's creating a stillness and emotional aura consistent with his ethos.
Sunday, February 5th, 2017 on Moonlight
Just a few random thoughts (some related to the film, some not):
- Sybil has really taken Met by storm lately. I sincerely hope there's no slowing down! More and more of her please
- Great match-up. These two look and act like they could be girlfriends in real-life. I'd love to see them paired again, even regularly if possible
- Hands! OMG! How pretty are these girls' hands?!? lol
- This film is my expectation of the quality SexArt should be delivering
- Where is the diversity?
Point One: 10.5 B/G, 5.5 G/G, 0 G.
Point Two: 1 film by Alis, 3 B/G since his return, 0 G/G, 0G
It's thematic, conceptual and emotional - all the makings of a perfect film, and that's exactly what this is... a perfect film! This is the best I've seen from Team A&A since Symphony! The score, the lighting and the story combine to create an intriguing, mesmerising atmosphere in which there's just enough incomplete context to wonder where this tale begins and ends - Kalisy's opening positioning mirroring that of her last. The decision, well, there are dreamers and there are realists... ;)
You actually make a VERY good point Aethelstan, there a hardly any... and certainly no standouts. The only one I recall being memorable is Winter Solstice with Jessie and Elle and that was a long time ago! Something to fix SexArt.
Monday, January 23rd, 2017 on Happy Day
Sorry to post here Team A&A.
Jon - when will SexArt finish/start organising it's 'series' into something that resembles what's available over at VT?
Sunday, January 15th, 2017 on Thinking About You
The intro is excellent, establishing characters and a relationship we can care about, so that when the sex arrives there's meaning to it. That is why this film is FAR superior to 'Sunset'. I particularly adore the sets, lighting and colouring also.
With regards to story and assembly though. It's all been done before.
Intro: girls in public to establish reality of relationship
Body: sex scene
Credits: (with possible outro featuring further exploration of relationship, or outtakes/bloopers)
It's all too familiar and becoming rather cookie cutter. Keeping innovating and finding new stories - recycling old ones isn't fresh or exciting. I've said the same thing to Alis over at VT.
Too much fingering. If a girl fingers too much, it's cause she doesn't like pussy and doesn't (at least sexually) like girls. At the end of the day, too much fingering equals fakery and thus disinterest on my part. Lesbian porn needs to depict real, healthy lesbian relationships. This does not.
I'd love to see more of Sybil, though I don't think she's a lesbian performer like her counterpart in Vanessa here. Let's get her involved solos instead.
Friday, January 6th, 2017 on Bracelet
We actually normally have two boy-girl films a week - a quick click and scroll through the most recent 'FILMS' would undisputedly support this. In addition, the ratios in 2016 have been skewered: 75 B/G, 55 G/G, 1(+/-14) G. There were also a total of 8 B/G series and yet not a single G/G series. For my liking, buscher actually brings a significant problem to light, and something that needs to be taken VERY seriously in 2017.
Wednesday, December 28th, 2016 on The Cove
A great film, great chemistry and your 'lived-in' locations have improved out of sight, but I must be honest... I wouldn't go as far as to say I hated the opening, but I intensely disliked it - in fact, after about 2mins I skipped through it.
I know you love handheld and love being intimately close to the action, but there was a line crossed here; things didn't feel romantic or intimate as intended, they actually felt nastily gonzo. I think it was the rapid, constant movement, the extremeness of the close-up and some of the angles (i.e. 45 degrees past Joel's butt onto Clea sucking his cock). It didn't work for me, it probably won't ever work for me, and it's not something I'd like to see repeated - judging by the low rating and lack of comments too, I think others might feel the same.
Anyway, enough of me being harsh on you, that was after all only 4 minutes of the film. As I said above, the remainder was quite beautiful.
P.S. I can't wait to see some of your new g and g/g material :)
Tuesday, December 27th, 2016 on Last Chance
Mimi17. This is a difficult one, because... yes, you should be entitled to give your honest opinion - I too get fed up with political correctness - but, there is still a line between being honest and being rude. In terms of whether or not your comments are rude, I'd ask you this: how would Margot feel reading them?
Sunday, December 25th, 2016 on Cool Me Down
A brilliant little slice of summer love. Kudos on the sound editing/mixing – controlling it despite the elements is a wonderful feat and ode to growth re: the opening of ‘Ladies’. It’s great to see some outdoor lovemaking too; those indoor “hotel rooms” you guys seem to favour are far too bland and lacking in character for my liking. I’d love to see a lot more outdoor shoots in the future; I feel they favour your style. When you’re shooting on location in Mallorca, Lanzarote, Portugal, etc. I think it’s best to take advantage of those lovely holiday surroundings anyway – plus, you know, natural light!
Thank you to all involved and Merry Christmas.
P.S. Between this and ‘Sunset’, I may have just discovered a love for Sandal Sex :)
Saturday, December 24th, 2016 on Cool Me Down
I love basically all of this, I just think the structure is completely back-to-front. The sex will mean something IF you've taken the time to establish location, characters, relationship etc., not the the other way around. This piece got interesting as soon as the girls finished having sex; which is sad, because you swap the 'cool-down and postlude' to 'prelude and foreplay' and it changes this piece into something much more emotional.
Additionally. We see the girls communicate when the music is playing, why not during the sex scene itself? It doesn't need to be subtitled, noises that sound like words will do. Sex is a social experience, we've been telling you that forever SexArt; I think it's time we made some strides on this front.
I hate to say this too, and I'm not claiming to everything about the vagina, but... if you're going to finger a girl:
a) wet (with saliva, her juices, lube) your finger(s) before you go sticking them anywhere
b) start with one finger and ASK her if she wants two
c) if you're fingers aren't sliding nicely inside, she's not wet enough and not likely to be enjoying much of what you're doing
d) watch Mango
Too often I see fingering done so very wrong and feel so very forced - it doesn't look nice for the girls and it doesn't look to me. I hope we can change this.

I've tried downloading the 1080p version of this 3x now and it keeps cancelling about halfway through and saying, 'Network Error'. Is this something on my end, or you guys? Maybe I should just try again tomorrow?
Wednesday, December 14th, 2016 on Here I am Again
It is disheartening, I totally agree. I alluded to it on 'Play The Game'. Girls like Tracy and Whitney helped SexArt find it's identity and project into the upper echelon - so why aren't we seeing more of them?
SexArt has been around for... I think 4 years now. I feel we've earned the right to be somewhat picky and elitist with the models we work with. Now elitist is almost always read with negative connotations but I can't subscribe to that. Victoria's Secret and SI Swimsuit bring us, without question, the most attractive women on the planet, who are at the absolute top of their game - and that's elitist. It's not one way though, because those women become a part of that label, if not that label itself.
When you think VS you automatically think Alessandra, Adriana, Candice, Behati, Rosie, Elsa, etc. When you think SI you think Bar, Brooklyn, Hannah, Kate, Nina, Irina, etc.
And why do we love those brands so much? Mostly because we love the women they work with! We love seeing Candice on the runway at the Fashion Show every year. We love seeing her in all the commercials. We love browsing the online store and seeing her there in 100 different types of swimsuits smiling that perfect smile. We want lots of Candice, VS gives her to us, and we're very happy about it.
We were somewhat on the right track when we gave out exclusive contracts to Michaela and Sapphira. Now I don't mean that because they were 'exclusive', I mean that because we had a really healthy flow of work from them. We loved those girls and we loved seeing them regularly in photosets and films. We knew we'd be getting more of them, and we were always excited for when that work was released. That was the power of hype. That was an excellent time for SexArt.
Now when I think SexArt, I want our models names to be the one of the first thing that springs to mind too. I wanna think Tracy, Whitney, Mango, Melena, Lorena, etc. These are the most attractive women working in erotica and they are undoubtedly at the top of their game. We want them... SexArt please give them to us (lots) and make us really, really happy :)

Friday, December 9th, 2016 on The best SexArt movie of 2016
One of my favourite films this year. I love the darker, psychological touch and the moody, clandestine atmosphere created - especially through score. My only gripe is with one particular problem created by the lighting. Yes, the lighting was an integral part of the film but surely there had to be a way around those unflattering shadows cast over the girls faces. Rarely did I see either girls eyes and never was I able to make out what colour they were. The eyes are emotion of a scene; with them featured, this could have been elevated further yet. Something to remember for next time. Thank you to all involved :)

Feedback regarding film in 2017:
- Variety of vision. Alis NEEDS to be here! I'd love to see J. Zakari and Alex Lynn here too
- Solos. They have a critical place here at SexArt. TLE and MetArtX are not substitutes
- Series. No stand-alone G/G series in 2016. Must be rectified in 2017
- Ratios. B/G = 75, G/G = 55, G = 1(+14 GLS) – a.t.o.w. Nowhere near good enough
- Greater interaction with the creative teams and models in the comments section
Feedback regarding photography in 2017:
- We need ‘Photography Models’ – like we had when Michaela Isizzu and Sapphira were Exclusive Models – to define our photography and elevate it to more than just an afterthought. I’d love to see Lorena, Mango, Melena, Caprice and Sabrisse represent our ‘Photography Models’ on a regular basis. They need too, to be photographed by our best artists: Don Caravaggio, Erro and Alex Lynn
- I’d love to see (more) photosets of our ‘Film Models’: Tracy Lindsay, Whitney Conroy, Alexa Tomas, Alexis Brill, Kiara Lord, etc. And that extends into appearances over at MetArt too
Feedback regarding models in 2017:
- Regular appearances from our 'Top Models', including: Tracy Lindsay, Whitney Conroy, Lorena Garcia, Mango, Melena, Amarna Miller, Alexa Tomas, Iwia, Dido, Alexis Crystal, Lexi Dona, Uma and Margot
- Greater focus on the next generation of potential Top Models, including: Aiko Bell, Alexis Brill, Kiara Lord, Julia Roca, Taylor Sands and Chrissy Fox
- Stronger international representation, including: Agatha, Ariel Rebel, Lola Reve, Layla Sin and Luna. I’d love to see Charlotte Stokely, Elle Alexandra and Kenna James too
- I want to see Sabrisse working with Team A&A on film. It’s a match made in heaven

I've been sincerely missing our top models lately... Tracy, Whitney, Lorena, Mango, Melena and Amarna. These are girls who've helped to define the identity of SexArt and we haven't seen much from any of them - it's becoming disheartening. I'd really love to see them again, as would everyone else I'm sure!
Sunday, December 4th, 2016 on Play The Game
I apologise in advance for butting in, it's not my place, but this is close to my heart and I want to raise awareness surrounding this.
My question to you is this: why, because Nancy is straight, does she not deserve to play that part? Further, would you hold it against someone who happened to be lesbian for playing a straight role? Based on your current belief, you're actually hamstringing people on both sides. You're saying that Nancy - despite her bravery, openness and progressive values - should not be allowed to represent and raise awareness for lesbian minorities through art - which, in fact, is one of the primary functions of art: to educate and raise awareness. The same would apply vice versa to a lesbian woman in a straight role. Mimi, at the end of the day, we need to be thanking Nancy, and others like her. By raising awareness and by conveying confidence in their sexuality, Nancy, and other actresses like her, are able to inspire lesbian women to embrace who they are and be proud of their place and contribution to today's society.

Mimi. I totally support Andrej and Ariel too, and think they're great people. I just believe in being challenged by the things I watch. That's not a crime, and certainly not something deserving of the tone in which you replied. True artists want people to be critical of their work anyway. Firstly, because it's a compliment - if a person takes the time to write something discerning, the artist knows they engaged and challenged their audience. Secondly, because in that feedback provided, there may be information that can help said artist fine tune their skills. If I'm in Team A&A's shoes, I want all the feedback, positive and negative I can get. Why? The above mentioned points.
Anyway. Going off history it's clear we want different things from SexArt. I respect what you want. Please try to respect what I want also.
Sunday, October 23rd, 2016 on Ordinary Night
Team A&A are entirely capable - we saw it in Tarot very recently (though that was apparently shot 2 years ago) - it's just... they need to work from a script. Hitchcock understood it when he said, "to make a great film you need three things - the script, the script, the script".
Don't get me wrong, this is a great feel-good piece and it's stimulating and orgasmic and fun, but... 1 week from now it's gone from my memory. Art needs to foster an interactive experience, where it not only serves to entertain, but to engage, evoke and/or educate. Further it should consolidate and/or expand ideas and start a discussion. That's art to me... everything else is imitation.
I mean, you can pick those artists who work from scripts right away - Locanta, Lakante and Black are standouts, Zakari looks promising - because their films fulfil the above-mentioned criteria. My theory/opinion/advice on the matter: 1) get Team A&A working from scripts (more often) 2) redirect those script-writing for Alis to Team A&A. Anyway... Just some thoughts.
P.S. You should watch The Neon Demon _fer. Like or loathe it - it'll be one of the two - you'll be able to respect it as art. It's an experience not easily forgotten and one that will stick with you and percolate for some time. You're welcome to email me if/after you watch it too, because it's something I'd love to discuss :)

Beautiful cinematography. Good editing - though some close-ups unnecessary. Overall, a quality production, just remember to try and say/evoke something lasting.
Friday, October 21st, 2016 on Ordinary Night
Yes. Rebirth and new beginnings, certainly. It's interesting how it all worked out - how death of one relationship (Ep 1) was able to bring life to others (Eps. 2, 3, 4), and conversely how birth of other relationships all but confirmed the death of those previously. It's an interesting idea and something to think about for sure :)
I like and agree with your second paragraph. I'm talking exclusively about the visual representation of that chemistry i.e. does the filmic language represent and convey the same eloquence as the girls interaction? I don't think so. It's too dynamic, it's rapid, there's too many close ups and short cuts, etc. That sort of thing is typical for action movies and it's used to create a sense of urgency and excitement. If my memory's good, you should check out 'Cumpleaños Feliz'. That shooting-editing style would have been MUCH better suited and it would have helped to better visually realise the theme of that episode. Also, gotta agree, Alexis is one badass babe, but so are Uma and Lexi. They give their all to each other!
Additionally. For you Kat and anyone else interested, is a superb Malick film by the name of Knight of Cups. I'll tell you a VERY basic outline, cause you should engage and discover what it all means for yourself - it'll be much more potent that way. I'd be super keen to discuss it thereafter though! Basically, a guy get some Tarot cards read and he reflects on 6 different relationships. Honestly, one of the best films I've ever watched, just be prepared, it's Malick... you need to watch ACTIVELY with your thinking cap and you need to think conceptually, metaphorically and spiritually.

Just an "end", here it's of a relationship/relationships.
This is one the best SexArt series I've seen, particularly in term of concept and theme - I really did view this as art and film, and not just your 'more common' brand of "titillating" erotica.
Still improvements to be made in shooting and editing though - "Hope" for example was ineloquently handled, and I use that word because thematically it needed to be warm and fluid and eloquent to visually represent the relationship "found". Some of your steadicam stuff is far too dynamic and when you're shooting that in close-up and then linking things with dynamic cuts, it can become... almost assaulting. Just let things breathe a little, and don't be afraid to use a tripod.
On the whole though, I'm extremely impressed and extremely happy for you guys. I'm led to believe this was shot almost 2 years ago now, but if you can bring something like this to the table again, and as a more regular occurrence, I'll be over the moon! This showcases your abilities as FILMMAKERS so perfectly. Well done, congrats, you have my admiration for a fucking fantastic series.
Also.. great casting!!! I said it on "False", but I'll say it again - I've never seen three girls interact in the ways these three do. They were made for each other, whether it be in 2's or 3's. Should Uma still be working, I'd whole-heartedly encourage you to bring them back together and often. Something like what these three have deserves as much attention as you guys can give it. I'd be delighted to watch an extended 10 episode series built around this 3-way lesbian relationship - I'd even be willing to dedicate some time to writing something if you guys can't find the time.
Once again. Congrats and well done on an almost perfect SexArt series :)

Yeah... and I agree with you. Great conception and all the right production values, the problem I had was that the assembly was a little confused. It's one thing have intent, another to convey it astutely and effectively through filmic language. I saw room for improvement so I provided constructive feedback. If I was Don, I'd want feedback, positive or negative, so I can better my abilities. Those are the values I've been raised on anyway.
I remember reading an extensive interview with Kaufman once and the most important thing I walked away with was a quote that went something like: "the most valuable thing to me is not money but art and those who can appreciate it. When people don't just watch, but engage with my work - understand why I lit a scene that way, or why I moved the camera that way - that is what's most valuable to me". My point? An artist allowed me the privilege of viewing their work, so rather than just consume, I engaged and attempted to give back... because I like and respect people like Charlie Kaufman and Don Caravaggio.

Also. THANK YOU for the SOLOOOOOOO!!!!
Thursday, October 6th, 2016 on Olas De Placer
My feelings on this are fairly mixed. It’s got everything going for it… everything… but there’s something that I just cannot forgive – the disjointedness of the story and the tone that goes with it. It’s kinda like watching Suicide Squad. It has all the right intentions and all the right production values, but it’s confused and doesn’t really understand what it is or what it has the potential to be. The result… it’s messy.
You start with one of the most beautiful beachside openings ever, and you’ve got Lorena being her cheeky, flirty, natural self and you top it off with this joyous, free-spirited 80’s-inspired score and I’m like…. “this feels real and authentic and I’m pretty keen to emotionally invest in whatever comes next”. As far as openings go, like fuck… that hit the mark so damn well! But then…
You take it indoors and you literally forget about everything that’s just come before it. New clothing, new décor, stage lighting rather than natural… you’ve discarded the handheld for a mounted-sliding/panning camera (I don’t know what the artistic purpose of that is – take notes from Fincher and tripod mount it if there is none), and then you put this completely different, sophisticated jazz score in there too, and I’m perplexed, like, “What?!? How’d we get from A to B, in what way do they relate, and also, how do you want me to feel again?” You HAVE to consider this stuff.
Sorry Don. I know this might sound harsh, but if it helps, Ayer is great director with a hell of a lot of skill just like you – you only have to see End of Watch and Fury to understand that. It’s just… you have to think about the stuff I’ve mentioned above. Story and tone are 2 of the most vital, if not, the most vital things in filmmaking. You have to get em right. Otherwise, no matter how good the production is, it’ll always fall flat.
You’ve got to understand too, one of the primary functions of art is to manipulate emotion and make an audience feel, so… don’t confuse them. Figure out what it is you want them to feel and what journey you want to take them on and then use your film technique to accomplish that with consideration and consistency.
Anyway. I know you’re a kickass photographer – you’re my fav post-Erro – I just want you to keep going with your filmmaking cause I truly do believe in you and Lorena and you’re developing so much as a team! I always look forward to seeing your work and I can’t wait to see you again :)
P.S. Lorena (and Tracy) are like the most normal, natural, coolest girls ever. They make me feel so secure and unashamed of my sexuality and desires. And that’s seriously the highest compliment I can give them both :)
Some of these look to be out of order: 107-114.

Do you think you could set it up please? She's incredibly cool and gives everything to her work and partners. I can tell she's a genuine lesbian performer, so she's definitely someone we should be seeing a lot more of - we just need to get her out from under the radar. Thanks Rose :)
Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 on Girls Love Sex - Samantha Rone
Hey Rose, off topic - have you by any chance interviewed Aiko Bell?
I'm not sure why... but I didn't feel any emotion while watching that. Not happy, not sad. Not aroused, not turned-off. I just felt nothing. Maybe its the lack of story and character, the sterile location, the lack of close-up, of eye contact, of communication, of warmth. I don't know, but... that should have made me feel something - elation, disappointment... something. Instead I just feel "meh". I really can't explain it, but that's just how I feel.

Just seeking clarification that this is the final episode in the series? I'd like to do a little bit of a write-up, but only if it's finished :)
Team A&A did it for Secrets of Prague too. They're on top of things :) Thanks Team A&A :)
Thursday, September 22nd, 2016 on Tarot Part 1 - False
Well said _fer_. Whole-heartedly agree with you on all points.
Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 on Tarot Part 1 - False
I'll reserve judgement until I've seen the series in it's entirety, but as it stands right now Team A&A, you should know it's on an excellent trajectory. This is some of the better filmmaking I've seen at SexArt ever (by any artist), and definitely the best of what I've seen this year - faith restored. There's a shot in that introduction with the girls overlooking the ocean and watching the surfer's; and the framing, the lighting, the composition, everything... it's magic, Malick magic in fact.
My critique. Dynamic shots don't necessarily make a film interesting or "good", nor does constantly connecting them with dynamic cuts. Additionally, you simply can't shoot and edit in that style if it's all close-up, it's nauseating. I know you wanted to portray intimacy, but you didn't need to do that cinematically - the girls gave you exactly what you needed, all you had to do was observe. So just relax a little on the camerawork and the overly-frenetic editing, and find beauty in stillness and simplicity. Not only will that suit the viewing experience better, but it'll suit your ethos too - and that's extremely important; don't disservice your own ethos.
Saturday, September 17th, 2016 on Tarot Part 2 - Hope
There's something incredibly reminiscent of the Antea-Erro combination here - and that's not to be taken lightly! Their sensibilities match perfectly, and I see so much potential! I hope they'll work together A LOT more. They seem to bring out the best in each other. For the same reason, that's why I've encouraged collaboration with Team A&A below. Please let's make this happen.
Tuesday, September 13th, 2016 on Sybali
It's definitely time to see Sabrisse work with Team A&A
An excellent start. So lovely to see THE girls back together - these 3 were made for each other. Looking forward to watching how this evolves.
Sunday, September 11th, 2016 on Tarot Part 1 - False
Arguably one of the most interesting and beautiful intros I've ever witnessed. Stunning location, score, cinematography, lighting... it's as close to perfection as can be. It's a shame then that it's COMPLETELY disjointed to the body of the video. Surely this cannot misleadingly take it's namesake or poster art from 3 minutes of introductory video. In no way do the intro and body link or complement each other, and I unfortunately saw no attempt to even do so. Apparently the intro was shot in Mallorca... what indication do I have against the notion of the body being shot in a hotel room in Mumbai? Further, why are we shooting in what appear to be bland, lifeless hotel rooms anyway? In what way do locations such as this add to the story, the context, the internal and external emotion of a scene? They don't. Using them is not considered, deliberate filmmaking.
Bo's "Fire Dance" was FAR superior to this, and what's a shame, a real bloody shame... is that I know you guys were capable of exceeding it. You have the talent, you have the skill, you have the team; you guys are capable of much better! If you wanted to accomplish something truly transcendent you would have stayed out on the balcony and fought tooth and nail to overcome production difficulties and achieve it. If you you weren't prepared to do that, you should have added a VERY simple transitionary scene from balcony to bedroom and ideally not named the film Fire Dance. I don't know... maybe my expectations are too high? But then again, you're the ones who set the bar that high in the first place...

Saturday, August 20th, 2016 on Faith
Ivana looks fantastic in skinny jeans! The doors look great too... Such intricacy and beauty to their craft, I'm glad we didn't miss that, it would have been such a shame ;) Sarcasm aside though, this is when Team A&A are at their best. Their odes to Prague - Market, Petrin, Sunset on Charles Bridge, etc - capture the energy of what they're truly about. Other than the "poor framing, dead-space door thing" the video's got going on, it's pretty close to perfect.
P.S. I'd love to see Ivana paired with someone with genuine lesbian tendencies... Uma comes to mind. I think they'd be ravenous together!
Friday, August 19th, 2016 on JL Wall
Killer location and killer idea! The prelude and postlude are spot on and that soundtrack definitely suits the party atmosphere . Overall, I think it's a great little video, however, I do think some improvements could have been made:
1. There's a tendency for you, Team A&A, to have a disconnect between prelude (scene a) and body (scene b). Recent examples I would give are Like Waves, Models and to a lesser extent, Market and Girls Day. A scene is set, emotions are established (often in line with the score) and then, abruptly, a new scene starts, we have a new location, a new score, emotions change and we are putting together the context. Certainly, it can work... but in the examples I've given, I feel as though that little bit of extra set-up and scene transitioning will help to create a fluency and fluidity that would better suit your style. Following Nancy and Rosaline from the party to the hull and then tracking Margot as she joins later is simple enough and would help to provide that fluidity and context. You did it pretty well on What Happens When?, so maybe use that as a reference and tinker with it, until you hit the sweet spot :)
2. I feel as though more work could have been done in sound-editing to get this to it's most well-realised state. Recording atmospheric sounds on location, reducing their volume in post, and then adding post-production recordings of girls simulating the sexual encounter would have, in my mind at least, been the most ideal version. How practical that is given constraints however, I'm honestly not sure.
3. For any girl wanting to do lesbian movies, I'd recommend watching Malena Morgan or Tracy Lindsay. When they eat pussy, their mouths literally never lift away from it until their girl orgasms. That what separates them, elevates their work above others, and makes you believe in the reality of the connection they have with their partner. If a girl keeps pulling away, she's hesitant. If a girl uses her fingers after 30 secs, she's hesitant. And for me, hesitancy = uncomfortable or faking it. Neither of which I want to watch.
Lastly, thank you Team A&A. As I said, overall,I think it's pretty awesome!
Also... It's definitely time for more Kiara and Whitney! Uma too! Please? :)

Artists like Locanta, Fincher, Aronofsky, Winding-Refn, Inarritu, Malick, Kubrick, Hitchcock, etc. understand very well what I'm saying, and understand that it is MUCH more than semantics.
Friday, August 5th, 2016 on Where Do We Go
I wasn't trying to start anything either Rose and I think you've misinterpreted the tone with which I was speaking - such is the problem of the written word. That said, you just confirmed my fears in saying, "I think your distinction between erotica and erotic film is unnecessary". Erotica is not film - in no way does it inform you as the nature of the human condition or the complexities of the world in which we live.
Thursday, August 4th, 2016 on Where Do We Go
Rose. The whole philosophy of SexArt is that they make Erotic Film, NOT "Erotica", NOT "Porn". There is a VERY clear distinction - I'm mentioned it numerous times before. We've devolved significantly over the past year and a half, and I worry most that the people running, working and contributing to site are unable to make that distinction. That first sentence has hit me like a subway train. Is this truly what you and the SexArt team believe your philosophy to be?
Just like everyone else in the comments section, I like Nancy, I think it's great to finally see her on film and it's particularly awesome cause she's making out with another girl. I also think Sybil is gorgeous too and that both have a lot of potential! Honestly though, I feel as I may be the only person viewing this without rose-coloured glasses on.
As a story, as a film, as a testament to an artist's evolution over time... this is disappointing :( I can't help but harken back to my comments about Blink-182. This is the old hits being played over and over: The Sea Mousse, Horizont, Horizont II - with nothing fresh or original being offered.
The only advice I can give is to look at Alis' anthology films, specifically The Heat 1 and 2, Secretly 1 and 2, and The Road Goes on 1 and 2, and look at how he developed and strengthened the ideas presented in them. In every instance, he took "erotica" and developed it into "erotic film". Alis grew as an ARTIST. With reference to Blink also, it might be worthwhile looking into how Delonge has evolved as an artist too. The guy used to make punk music and dick jokes, now he's not only one of the most recognisable musicians and lyricists, but a filmmaker (an award-winning one to boot), an author of numerous novels, a comic-book artist, and the list goes on.
There's any number of ways this "video" could have been developed intellectually, conceptually, thematically. Give me 5 secs... Ok. Why not juxtapose the beauty and danger/destruction of waves with that of the development and deterioration of a relationship, al-la Cianfrance's Blue Valentine? That sounds like art to me.
I'm looking at today's release too - as in Take Care, and I'm thinking is this art? On an "erotica" site it would fit the bill - exceptionally well, but... I expect a LOT more from a ART-"film" site. Good art needs to present a theme, concept, idea, and/or evoke emotions that challenge or attempt to enlighten an audience as to the nature of the human condition - it's not art otherwise.
In all honesty, both these "videos" will be forgotten by the time I fall asleep tonight. Now isn't the purpose of art to create something that sticks with the viewer for what may potentially be the rest of their life. Something that informs the way they live, view the world, the people around them, etc.
Jon, this is what I'm talking about. These 2 films represent the deterioration of SexArt from erotic film into erotica. Are you seeing what I'm seeing? Isn't it time to bring Alis back here? Isn't it time to recruit someone with an artist's mind like J. Zakari and bring him in too? Isn't it time to involve a writer with Team A&A. You can pick Garland's scripts from a mile away because regardless of the director, there is an artistry and theme that comes through them. Let's get back to making innovative material... film. Let's get back to our golden age.
P.S. Andrej. If there is one particularly positive thing I can say, it's that your post-credits from this and Market have a lot of honesty and purity in them. If you can inject that spontaneity and truth into the body of the work, as in the actual film, it will elevate your work significantly.

Beautiful! A wonderfully relatable story portrayed authentically by two especially professional performers. This is the best cinematography and editing I've seen at SexArt all year, and that perfectly serendipitous postlude beams with spontaneity, personality, interaction and truth - in fact, those moments were the most honest in this piece. Andrej, whatever you can do as director to garner and inject these moments into the actual body of the work, I'd strongly encourage. This a beautiful success; thank you Team A&A :)
Saturday, July 16th, 2016 on Market
Look... this is hot, particularly because I'm a legs and feet person, but I’m honestly unimpressed by this series.
First. It’s not GLS Season 4 as it’s claiming to be. To me it’s quite clear this has been pulled from the archives and recycled in response to the in-depth conversation that took part on “Tarein” – I think this says a lot about the state of SexArt currently, and I’d urge you guys to consider not just 1, but all 7 points made in that conversation.
Second. The series offers nothing fresh or different, though given the fact it’s old, I wouldn’t expect it to anyway. In the interest of helping out, here’s what I’d do with GLS #ConceptBySydney
Any time you’re interviewing an adult performer, you have to unique opportunity to subvert the viewer’s gaze, portray the individual as a real person and in doing so, diminish the idea of said performer as a voyeuristic, objectified sex object. Basically, through interviewing these women you’d promote the idea of relating to one another sexually in an honest, intimate, respectful and LOVING way by scrutinising and subverting the pornographic gaze.
To me porn perpetuates this strange, exaggerated perception of sexual activity and promotes promiscuity as the natural sexual state. It leads to us putting our sexual needs over those of love and intimacy, it undermines sexual monogamy, and as such, it diminishes trust between intimate couples and fosters this inability to relate to each other in honest way. So… subvert all those things by talking to real women, with real stories in a largely desexualised manner. Put that first, make it the centrepiece, spend significant time genuinely getting to know someone, discovering their intimate selves and discussing their real life sexual relations, and… if you need to film something sexual, film it “pure” and “raw”. Put her in “her” environment, at home, where she can be herself.
Anyway. That’s enough, I’m really tired… For reference, go watch “Just Jasmine”. It’s by far and away the best GLS episode ever created. Everything else well and truly pales in comparison.

I rewatched this last night and I started thinking about the possibility of a sequel, but that meant more than just doing it for the sake of it, it meant expanding/opening up the relationship and story, and strengthening the piece thematically. And that's when I thought of Linklater's "Before" trilogy. What if Ivana was a working-travelling woman and this couple only saw each other every few years, each time for the briefest of periods? What influence and impact would TIME have had on these women and their interaction? Given the time that has elapsed in "real-time" and the changing image of Ivana in particular - if I'm allowed to - I'd request that an intelligent sequel be made based upon this idea. There's no time like the present people :)
Saturday, June 4th, 2016 on Cafe
Thanks for clarifying Bo. It's great to have you back. I look forward to seeing what you bring us and how your style has developed over the years.
With regard to this, I'd say only that GLS Season 2 worked so well because of Kayla Jane. I'd strongly encourage you to seat a female interviewer across from these ladies in future instalments. It creates a much more open, intimate and female-centric environment, which obviously fits the title and theme much more appropriately.
Sunday, May 29th, 2016 on Girls Love Sex - Elle Alexandra
Shot in 2012-13 or shot recently?
Alis and Jon,
This is brilliant! This GLS episode provided an intimate look into Mango, and you’ve perfectly captured and conveyed her beauty, sexuality and personality. We are able to ascertain so much detail from this piece; which in turn adds depth and psychology to Mango’s films, her acting and her real life persona. If there’s one thing I can say, it’s that I’m so glad and proud (I don’t mean to sound snobbish) you’re listening to and implementing the feedback we, as members, provide. I genuinely believe you are producing more authentic and intimate films because of this.
Two discussion points, well, one really, the other is just a comment.
So I’ll start with the comment. I love the ending scene, for so many reasons. First, I’m a bikini person. Second, on a personal and professional level, so is Mango. Third and fourth, I liked the cheeky little anal play and score, both throwbacks to ‘Be My Slave: Vol. 2’ (her first work for SexArt). Fifth, location and the wide range shots which displayed it.
Ok, now onto the big discussion point and that’s anal. And in all honesty, I don’t feel this should be a big discussion point (if that makes any sense). This was well within the realms of SexArt. Mango enjoys/enjoyed it, and if she wants to explore and show that side of her sexual tastes, she should be more than welcome to. I’ve been watching a few VT works lately, and one of the things they incorporate is ass-licking (hmm… it does sound dirty when I say it). But to watch it, I don’t mind it all. In fact, it’s a little naughty and sexy, and it makes me feel that way too, which a nice thing. I understand if SexArt never want to include it, and that’s fine. I just want to say that I’m open to it however, as long as it’s always at the discretion of performers.
That’s all I got. Thanks Alis! And thanks Mango! You’re tooooooo awesome!
Wednesday, November 5th, 2014 on Girls Love Sex - Exhibitionist
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' :)
Friday, August 28th, 2015 on Secrets of Prague Episode 1
Sparky, I could not agree with you more. Tracy is the number one lesbian model currently working, period. She brings an undeniable truth to everything she does, and to watch her connect with her partners in such a genuine, passionate and positive way is a thing of beauty. We are very privileged to have her with us, and I hope we will for many, many years to come. Thank you Tracy.
Friday, February 5th, 2016 on Imagination
I think this is a story of exhibitionism, and I’d go further to say it’s about the writer’s acceptance of exhibitionism as a powerful force that drives her sexual arousal and pleasure.
In Scene 1 we have our conservative writer, clad from head to toe, in a state of imagination. Now, I believe those crosscuts we see of Scene 3, with that powerful, poised version of herself represent what is actually on her mind, and what she’s first typing about. As she continues to type however, what actually plays out in Scene 2 is slightly less daring, I guess you could say it’s a positively skewed medium between 1 and 3 – and I think that’s because she’s somewhat fearful of admitting her truer (and nastier) sexual desires to herself.
So with Scene 2, in Lawrence of Arabia style, we have a medium shot that sees the writer’s page slowly drift from left to right as she enters a realm of escapism to divulge half-truths regarding her sexual self. We have those close-ups too that represent the more finite and sexually charged details of her story – those full-truths, some of which remain trapped behind the windows, being kept at bay. In both instances too, we see these small inconsistences with repositioning and repeats and such, as our writer’s brain ticks over and deliberates what it’s willing to divulge.
Again, like other installments in the series too, I think there’s some stuff in there about gaze and objectification, but this time around, unlike in ShowTime, Melena is most definitely the objectifying her own sexuality. And as far her exhibitionism goes, I’d say she’s somewhat encouraging her audience to do the same – our lust is her arousal, that’s her truth, but here there is still hesitancy too that. In Scene 3 however, we see those half-truths full realised.
With those last few explicit lines about the Ben-Wa balls tipping her over the edge, those thoughts our writer first had come flooding back, demanding to be written – and for whatever reason, she can no longer keep them at bay. Her mind explodes with creativity and passion as she rapidly divulges her true desires. Her exhibitionist display gives sexual strength and control – that shining slit indicating just how powerful a force it is in driving her sexual arousal and pleasure. Now if only can she admit that to herself in the real world…
Sunday, September 27th, 2015 on Outlines Episode 3 - Forget the Writer
This is perhaps one of your best pieces of photography yet. Great lighting, colour, focus, setting, hair and make-up, lingerie, etc. Everything is just that little more bit sophisticated. In my opinion Don is SexArt's best photographer (not that I don't think everyone else is great, yourself included), and this is right on par, if not better than some of his work. Thanks Deltagamma, and also Melena :)

The Pledge, The Turn and The Prestige ;) It’s a fine little magic trick you’ve performed. Luckily I was, ‘watching closely’.
The Pledge: in our opening B&W sequence we are presented with the inklings of a Dom/Sub relationship and Whitney is established as the one in power.
The Turn: this setup is however immediately subverted in our middle colour sequence, as we watch Julia take control. As the sexual encounter unfolds however, we begin to understand the mutual nature of Dom/Sub relations. The girl’s interaction develops further and further, and “the powerful emotions they express, and the desires they convey to each other, are what gives the films it’s weight and adds such powerful erotic impact to the encounter. Yearning, hunger, desire, lust, pleasure - through body language, eye-contact, even something as simple as a deep breath; the communication the lovers share as their encounter proceeds is both involving and exquisitely beautiful”.
The Prestige: and it’s in our closing sequence that these sentiments are confirmed. We learn through skilful use of juxtaposition and layering, that our B&W sequences are one in the same. A Dom/Sub relationship did exist, but it’s not as we thought; we’d been deliberately misdirected. This Dom/Sub encounter, and in fact Dom/Sub relations on the whole are a shared experience, consisting of shared roles. Situations such as these are not performed for the pleasure of one partner, but both. And though on the surface they may not seem it, they are built on trust, intimacy and connectedness.
On a technical note:
- In regards Jorge and Duliamo’s cinematography, they need to work on adjusting/adapting their focus when using tracking shots. It remains relatively fixed on (mostly on the face), and thus when tracking arms, hands, legs, etc. these body parts are out of focus. This is definitely an area for improvement.
- Long shots were MUCH better in this film. They did not cut out our actress’s lower bodies, and in fact, throughout the entirety of the film, thighs, legs and feet were almost always visible.
On an erotic note:
- My favourite erotic part of this film was the tracking of Whitney’s panties being removed, because we got to view Whitney’s legs and feet… and they are beautiful!
- Eva’s costume design. These costumes were unreal! So sexy and so feminine, and just gorgeous. This get’s my nomination for Best Costume Design at the 2014 SexArt Oscars.
- Physically, and Whitney and Julia were perfectly matched. They looked hot together, and couple-like.
Thanks to all involved. Alis, this was awesome!!!

Alis responded... "cool idea!!...". Sounds promising... Yep, keep that voice loud Steph, we'll will it into existence together!
And 'Be Mine' is the pinnacle of Don and Lorena's filmic work! Amazing :) Let's hope for future productions that top it! :)
Wednesday, July 15th, 2015 on Sermin
Every time I think I've got you worked out... you evolve! This is powerful, authentic, romantic and FEMININE! And honestly, I think feminine is the highest compliment I can give. This makes me feel special, and beautiful, and appreciated, and loved. You and the girls have taken a simplistic concept and made it yours. I used to say Andrej was the best at capturing authentic chemistry... well Alis, Andrej should watch this, he might even learn a thing two.
Now what makes this work:
- Long, continuos shots. If you're looking to breathe life and authenticity into a film, that's how you do it. Just look at Shame, Blue and Short Term 12.
- Editing. In addition to the role long shots play here, you're really relaxing on the editing front. Yes, it remove that level of cerebral complexity, but for a film like this it makes for a more authentic, languid, believable encounter/atmosphere.
- Camera-work. Kudos to you and to Duliamo on this front. As of late, you're camera is wandering, swaying just that touch and exploring all parts of the female body, and your work it less masculine because of it.
- Chemistry. You knew these two were going to have it, just like I did. It's really important when your casting to try and match the right girls and you pretty much always nail it on this front. Please don't hesitate to link these two up again. Rose's idea of a more primal encounter is certainly something I'd be interested in.
- Allowing sexual positions time. For example, the scissoring scene. Compare this to the one in TRGO(2) and you'll notice the difference straight away. Once seems completely fake and the other seems completely real! Don't rush the girls, don't rush the positions, don't edit to increase the pacing, just let it all flow naturally.
That's all I've got for now Alis, haha. It was another late night killing time [writing ;)] until this downloaded, so I'm rather tired. I'll think on this in my sleep and I might have more to add in the morning :) Keep up the incredible work! You're amazing, and I'm very lucky I discovered your work!
Friday, June 12th, 2015 on Cumpleanos Feliz
I'm really looking forward to watching both this and 'Broken'! Hopefully I'll get the time soon. For now though, can I please ask to see more Team A&A films starring (in no particular order):
Thank you :)

OMG! This is what I've been waiting for :) So excited!!! I can't wait to watch! :)
Friday, March 6th, 2015 on Memento - First Act
I can see what you were trying to accomplish here with the story, that being that, Sapphira’s not really missing out on anything by not going out (to what presumably is a party). She is the party (as we see postlude), and it’s the people that are out, that are missing out on her.
Unfortunately the personality/aura required to pull off such a story never quite rang true. It just didn’t have the weight or authenticity it needed to shine. And as much as I like Sapphira, I think with a more experienced actress (this was obviously shot early in her career, pre Lupin-pairing and pre end of exclusive contract), this story would have succeeded in a much more complete way.
I wouldn’t say no to a g or g/g Vol. 2 starring Amarna, Ariel and/or Tracy. I also wouldn’t mind if you treated it as a little critique on single nightlife vs. committed relationship, because I could feel an essence of that presented here.
Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 on Dance The Night Away
This really is a breath of fresh air! Now I say fresh because whilst your offerings in 2015 have been wonderful, most have been anthological updates that are too similar to their counterparts (Incandescence, Pasion(2), 122 Fahrenheit, etc.), or have been re-evaluated and offered up too soon following the original (Distorted Reality). This idea and this story felt fresh, and I was thus able to approach it with brighter eyes and a more open mind.
For me, the film was also so vividly nostalgic. I’ve just been backpacking for a month myself, and all these experiences are so fresh in my memory, that I could actually feel myself living this story with our girls: meeting new and stimulating people, wandering and discovering new locations to explore, organizing and locating accommodation and the excitement you get when it’s actually pretty awesome, enthusiastically engaging in a little promiscuous activity with a new friend; before ‘The Road Goes On’ to the next adventure. It’s simple, yet relatable and beautifully realised.
And it’s because of these few little things in production that I think this film really shines:
I don’t really have to say either of these things, because you almost always get it right Alis, but congrats on casting; Agatha and Silvie suited their roles perfectly, and were gorgeously matched as a couple; and also congrats with your direction. I loved how you placed significance on the fondling of breasts. It’s a very feminine directional choice and I absolutely love that! You’ve also managed to coach and garner a performance from Silvie that was her best yet! However… I felt incredibly awkward watching that final-final (as in when crotches touch) tribbing scene. It lacked all authenticity… I think I’ll just leave it at that…
I also wrote just recently about how much I love the format of IBDS, particularly in the way the second half of Vol.’s 2 and 3 emphasize female beauty through a (close up) full body study. I went on to say how I hoped this style of shooting-editing would be incorporated into films outside of that particular anthology. It was thrilling to see that happening here, and I hope it will continue in future releases.
Lastly I want to commend you on utilising your gorgeous outdoor location and managing such an attractive indoor setting, particularly with regard to your lighting! I loved how the shadows contoured and highlighted both ladies bodies.
Congrats on such an awesome film Alis! This is easily one of my favourites of 2015. I hope you’re well, and I look forward to seeing all your future work :)
P.S. I really want to see hugging, cuddling happening during explicit sex scenes. It doesn’t worry me if I miss out on seeing abs, or boobs, or whatever… That form of interaction is highly affectionate and extremely telling with regard to chemistry. I’d find it much ‘hotter’ and more authentic if our actresses were permitted to hold each other as they so desire during their scenes, rather than worry about ‘sexily’ positioning their bodies.
Friday, February 13th, 2015 on The Road Goes On 2
Andrej and Ariel,
The last time I remember feeling this way was when I viewed Symphony. The thing is though, if someone asked me where I was emotionally ‘at’ after watching that film, I would never have been able to find the words to describe that. I recall trying to write a Blog piece for Symphony and very miserably failing. I was so disappointed in myself, because it deserved all the praise and love in the world. And that’s just it; I can’t really describe how these films make me feel, because these films make me FEEL… is love. I mean, I know what love is, but I certainly can’t articulate it to anyone. All I know is that it’s pure and perfect and real, and that when you’re that truly, madly and deeply in love, nothing else ever really matters. The interesting bit is that normally you have to be in love, to FEEL love, but with Symphony and Together, well… I mean, all I’m doing is watching… but I can tell it’s love, and I can FEEL its love. And my god is that something extremely, incredibly SPECIAL!
Thank you Andrej and Ariel, and also to Iwia, Suzie, Lexie and Alexa for the creation of two of the most beautiful films available at SexArt (which basically means, two of the most beautiful films available).
Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 on Together
Alis, Amarna and Ariel,
To me, the Pour Toi Mon Amour anthology presents one of Alis’ simplest, yet most emotionally evocative and resonate ideas: that the love of two (bound) individuals is intensified by showing [prelude], giving [body] and sharing [postlude?] their unadulterated sexual selves to one another.
I must be honest and say that to date, the anthology has struggled to truly and convincingly affect this idea. Here however, these sentiments have been beautifully realised; thanks in no small part to the very real chemistry shared by our leading ladies.
I can only say thank you to all involved for allowing me the privilege of viewing the wonderfully captured spectacle of ‘love’ shared by these two very gorgeous ladies. And for presenting me with to opportunity to better understand and appreciate the artistic message behind this anthology.
Keep up the amazing work everyone! :)
P.S. Ariel. I loved how naughty you were with Amarna boobs and nipples. Haha. You naughty little angel ;)

Sabrisse and Erro twice in one day... methinks K's feeling outstandingly generous :)))) Thanking you muchly!
Thursday, April 21st, 2016 on Qatopa
I love this!... but there’s definitely room for improvement. So here goes :)
1) I loved that opening segment on the beach; with the location, camerawork and soundtrack, it captured a charming, feminine and relaxed summer vibe that hit the notes it was going for perfectly. However did I notice some issues with wind and sound recording, which I think could have been overcome during production or perhaps muted in post with a little bit more editing. I also have to bring it up, because it’s been present in the last 2 videos you guys have released – cigarettes are a no, no. Please let’s not see them on film again. Other than those 2 little things however, I have to say, I adored the opening :)
2) I loved the communication between the girls before and after their sexual encounter, but unfortunately the communication during the encounter itself was very limited. Communication is key in sex, and a heck of a lot more so when you have more than 2 people involved – it just doesn’t work otherwise. So it’s something that needs to be heavily encouraged in all scenes, threesomes particularly!
Additionally, you need that non-verbal communication, and too often we see Sicilia closing her eyes. Now, I understand that completely normal, especially if there’s genuine pleasure involved, but early in the scene I feel as though it’s a result of naïve and somewhat timid acting I guess. If there’s a true connection there, you’re going to want to look your partner in their eyes and feel their emotion and heart and heat and soul. Kiara did that very well (she always does) and it was captured very well; I have to say however that poor Taissia was undersold. Her eyes and smiles gave key emotional information to that scene, but if I weren’t looking for that, I would never have known. Now whether that’s an issue in shooting or in editing, perhaps both, it’s something that should be looked at. Because I feel if Taissia’s eyes and smile were given the camerawork and screen time they deserved, it would have elevated this scene to a whole other level.
3) Environments. This is something I’ve been discussing with Guy (at VT) a lot lately too. With your environments, it’s important that they have character and personality, and they need to support the story and it’s emotions. Viv, for the most part understood this very well, always opting for lived-in environments. If you’re interested, I’d take a look at his early work, a Stella-Vera Office Girls 1 Scene springs straight to mind. I bring this up because; a bland, white setting such as this does nothing to support the story being told. So let’s put a beach painting on the wall, some shell decorations; leave some thongs/flip-flops at the door, a beach bag and some towels too. Maybe leave some hairdryers around, some moisturiser, some make-up, a girly magazine, a water bottle, house keys, etc. Lived in environments add so much character and story to the story, and beyond that, give the scene a sense of realism – and tangibility is crucial for connectivity. Watch ‘The WETA Effect’ if you don’t believe me. Trust me, it might not seem important, but I can guarantee it will make a big difference, especially for you guys, because I consider you’re ‘REALISTIC’ storytellers. That’s your thing :) So let’s improve upon that even more
4) Kiara. When it comes to Team A&A Films, Kiara is definitely a force to be reckoned with, because there’s such a natural synergy there. It’s like Alis and Amarna for example, or Viv and Jo, or let’s really go for it and say Scorsese and DiCaprio. You can tell there’s a lot of mutual respect there, and a passion what’s being created. Kiara is someone I think you guys should consider trying to work with on a VERY regular basis, because no matter what, I know that together you’ll deliver quality material. And honestly, even if the demand for Kiara right now isn’t high enough, it will be! She’s a really beautiful and really talented girl, she deserves the opportunity to show (and tell) everyone just awesome she is really is!
Thanks for a really nice film Team A&A. Your work out of Sitges is really pretty!

Oh sorry, forgot one more question - can you please continue working with Lorena for many, many years to come? :)
Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 on Sermin
The 'Dream Team'. Absolutely! You can tell these two have such a respect for each other, and that translates so remarkably well in all their work. Lorena and Don, for me at least, have a track-record that rivals that of Antea and Erro, and that's freakin' saying something!
Don, just a couple of questions for you:
- Does Lorena still help you with editing and colour correcting and such?
- Do you and Lorena have any desire to dabble into film again?
Thanks for a fabulous set! One of the best this year! You both should be really proud of it!
Michaela (SexArt) and Sapphira (MetArt) in stars and stripes on the same day! I'm not American, but heck, this is one very awesome day indeed! Thank you Luca/Don!

Saturday, June 13th, 2015 on Cumpleanos Feliz
I really love reading you Steph :) Great comments! The only thing I don't agree on is the aerial shot, cause I think it would have detracted from the realism of the scene. Anyways... keep the comments coming :)
Holy moly! This is gonna be HAWWWWWWWWT!!!!! Alis... I love you! Now let's download baby!!! :)
Hey Delta, thank you so much for such an in-depth response. Although a know a little bit about film, I know virtually nothing about photography... just that I like it :) Reading this response is great, and very helpful and informative! You're such a great contributor to our conversations here!!! I truly value your work and words Delta :) Thank you again! :)
Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 on Oleo
Hey Delta :) - so nice to see Melena again! :)
This is another good set, but it's not 'great' like the other two. I think it's missing that level of vibrancy, flirtation and naughtiness I normally expect from Melena. I think you were trying for more sexy and sensual in this set, and thats great to see you experimenting with mood, but I like it when photography reveals that candid, 'this-is-me' feeling from the models. Those are just my feelings though :)
All in all, despite that and a few little focus issues in your long shots (particularly regarding Melena's face) it was a nice set :) Thanks Delta, and thanks Melena.
By the way Melena, I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next... ;) 'Someone' told me it will be extremely exciting!!! ;)
Don and Miela,
DAMN! This is my kind of photoset :) Thank you!!! I hope you have more together coming? :)
Here we have hella sexy beach blondie, in a hella sexy one piece, (they are my favourite these days). She's out in the glorious sunshine, tanning up, and she's surrounded by lovely, saturated blues, greens, and terracotta's, and she's even being a flirty water baby! Oh Miela... You're a goddess!
And Don your shot selection is gorgeous. You always position and capture your girls soooo beautifully. Everything you do elaborates upon their already existing beauty, and your able to deliver such passionate pictures because of it. This feels so Erro-like, and for me, that's the highest praise I can give when it comes to erotic photography!
And can I just note too, I love how you always consider the girls legs and feet. Erro did this too, and for me they are my favourite female features. To see you actually care for them, and put the effort into capturing them so beautifully is so very welcome! Next time you see Alis, you must have a conversation about this with him! :) He needs to learn, lol :)
Thank you again for both of you!
And can I just say... Miela is arguably the hottest thing on MetNetwork right now! Seriously, what... a... BABE! SexArt and VivThomas director(s), it's time to get her back on film! And that's not necessarily a 'please can make this happen?', that's a 'this needs to happen... and soon!!!!!' :)
Monday, May 25th, 2015 on Rastu
Rose!!!! OMG! These are UH-MAZING! Thank you, thank you :) The only thing better than this would be kiss on the cheek from Candice Swanepoel :) So many wonderful pictures, that offer such a different and fresh perspective on things :)
These are so good, I'm inclined to say instead of releasing 'sex' photosets along side the films, release 'behind the scenes' photosets instead! And I'm serious! I love this!!!!
Now. My favourite pic here is 'Luna on unreleased picture set (7/1/2013). I'm legitimately in love with it! There is sooooo much happiness and joy there, it's a ray of sunshine and an image that stands on it's own as piece of art! God, I love, love, love this pic!!!!
I also love Luna and Whitney's 'Approaching' image. Luna is getting a little crazy, and Whitney's is hilarious and pouty with her arms crossed :) So funny!
Sophie tied up and smiling in 'The Writer' is an absolute gem. It shows how soft and caring and gentle and loving BDSM can be :)
Now... I'm very curious about Tracy in 'Vox'. Any chance we can see this film please? And just on another Tracy note, how adorbs is she smiling in front of Amarna pink dido?!? :) Mmm... totally cute!
And Aleska... it looks like this may have been Alis' first ever scene shot for SexArt! I know it probably hasn't been released because of technicalities and such, but boy, I would love to see, if only to see just how far Alis has come as an artist... Any chance please?
Thank you again Rose! And thank you Alis for sharing these!!!! I thought our last news item was fun! This is like Christmas come early!!! :)

Walter and Melena,
This is amazing! Absolutely amazing! This is what SexArt photography can and should be!!! It's not often I'm captivated by photography anymore (not since Erro's retirement), but this, like Alex Lynn's work too for MetArt, is beautiful. Walter you have told a sweet/cute/fun little story is told and captured Melena candidly, sensually, sexually, and quite naughtily with that little finger in her bottom I might add :) Everything feel genuine, unrushed and you can tell no boundaries/limits exist. Just take the length of the photoset as an example. Thank you Walter, this photography breathes life, and Melena you've put one very, very, very humungous smile onto my face! Thank you! This is just incredible! More like this please Jon :)

I really loved this little Soderbergh tribute, right down to that flirty striptease! I must say, I think this one tops Clooney and J'Lo's :) The structure of the scene and the emotions involved reminded me very much of Jealousy: Vol 2, which as you know is one of my favourite films! This still however felt fresh and offered some new insights and perspectives! And, can I say that the body of the film was just gorgeous! I loved how romantic it felt, especially with all those candles!
Congratulations Alis, Ariel and Lola. This is beautiful!
P.S. Please keep bringing both ladies back! Especially Lola. She just brings something to your films that no other girl does...

Second thing. I love Lexie and I love Uma! You can tell they both love women, and enjoy their work. I want to see them regularly at SexArt, and VT. With all this talk about 'family' lately, I definitely feel they should be a part of it! Please 'thumbs up' if you agree. The more 'thumbs up', the more power behind the statement, and the more influence it holds!

Wow Delta! Between this and Litati, you really killed it with these shootings! I can really only reiterate what was said on Litati here: this is next level photography :) You've really grown a lot! I hope you still have a few more sets with Malena from these days of shooting... please tell me you do?... haha.
Thanks Deltagamma and thanks Malena, you little hottie! :)
Yep. Series of the Year... unquestionably! I say series because I feel like 'Film' and 'Series' should be separate categories. With that in mind, can I ask what your favourite film is Rose? I want to know because I really respect your opinion, and, given that we don't share the same one, I'd like to delve into that film again in hopes of understanding it in a new 'Rose' light. Mine is The Road Goes On: Vol. 2, based on storyline and Alis' mastery of incomplete context, just in case you were interested :)
Friday, March 20th, 2015 on Memento - Third Act
Rose! I will definitely check that out! But in the morning ok? It's like, 3:30am. God! Alis, another dedicated night of film study in your honour, haha :)
Can I just add. This is the best cast on an erotic film I have ever seen. The most beautiful and perhaps more importantly, the most talented. We discussed the importance of 'core actors' on Rose's, 'Sblattero thread' on the Blog; these are the ladies I want to see most at SexArt! These four right here! Plus Whitney, Amarna and Ariel. This team of ladies Alis has built is incredible, and constantly generate beautiful, thoughtful, high end film! This team is the strongest since the likes of Sandy, Sophie Moon, Stella Stevens, Nella, Kylie, Jo, etc. at Viv Thomas.
B&W: Contemplative, progressing to sexual. At the dining room table.
3. (I) Mango hands Tracy her bag, wanting her to leave. Tracy doesn’t follow guidance, closes door and tries to ‘fuck’ Mango. Mango resists, clearly not wanting to give in to those advances, but does surrender. Clothing (Tracy) is BDSM/kink. Mango is surrendering as Tracy rubs her pussy, but Mango suddenly stops, re-clothing herself and repeating her original gestures for Tracy to leave. When Tracy leaves, Mango wipes her lips, as if it to erase the dirty taste of what she engaged in. [Scene is about Tracy trying to redeem herself by showing Mango she can think about someone other than herself, but Mango knows Tracy’s true colours by now].
B&W: Sexual. Contemplative. Sexual. Contemplative.
2. (II) Mango and Tracy making out in bedroom, moving a bit more languidly. Love could exist… Same attire. Mango making eye contact and trying to connect. Tracy just takes her orgasm and leaves. Mango is suffering in silence, as love doesn’t exist here → Mango finally ending the relationship
B&W: Contemplative. She’s getting dressed. [In same spot she had Lola last time]. Putting things to rest?
1. (III) Tracy is dressing in BDSM attire. Mango watching and is a little hesitant, maybe even frustrated/angry, but why? It’s already post (and not pre) sex, where Mango had satisfied Tracy with no return (An indication of how the relationship has worked for some period of time. Behaviour at the end of a relationship is indicative of everything before it, and the outcome of it). Now Mango wants her orgasm. Stands up and dominates Tracy, and has to direct her to get what she wants, all the time. Mango up and leaves at the end, giving Tracy a taste of her own medicine → a deceptively more languid/loving scene (II), that demonstrates to Mango that Tracy will never change
Leaving that house behind, leaving those memories embedded in it behind, and moving on. Colour transition!!!!!!!! Life after loss!
Postlude. Mango always seems to be pleasuring herself. And then the other person joins, but at different rates/times. Indicating the closeness of the relationship? Also, what’s the significance of Mango pleasuring herself?
• Panning shot of Tracy’s hand rubbing over Mango’s bum. Pretty hands, pretty nails, pretty ring. You’ve come a long way since static medium shots of a pussy, torso and head.
• Mango’s heels in Scene III are hot!!! I only wish I had of seen more of them...
• Love the piano score in this! Alis you’re a musical master :)
[Last bit omitted] Ok. Now that Memento has come to an end, I can start to work on a Review for the Blog. As this story is centred on emotion, it might take a bit of time to wrap my head around Mango and where she's been, is at, and is going, but I hope to get it up soon! Please keep your eyes peeled! :)
Black and White = Present
Colour = Past
Recalling from the past. (Reverse sequencing). Scene I is actually the last in this entire film/series. All Colour is playing out in reverse, while Black & White progresses forward in present.
3. (I) Alexa has arrived with Luggage (travelling) – first meeting – NO - last encounter, she’s leaving – sex that doesn’t progress, just a kiss - ecstasy to melancholy. B&W with slight replay function as Mango processes and accepts what’s happened - relationship is no more
2. (II) Sex on longue – given attire (same), likely from immediately before. (Relationship seems based primarily on sex, is that why it [failed?]). Mango seems a little more submissive, and all focus is directed to her – Alexa is a little more ‘cold’… (is Mango more vulnerable, still in [love?] and hurting more when this is all over?) Alexa smiles as she pleasures Mango (knowing Mango’s infatuation with her?). End and gets up to leave → progressing to (3) - continued desires, met with resistance – some explicit action, but just a kiss before leaving
1. (III) Alexa getting dressed – Mango enters nude and Alexa regresses to nude too. Alexa still seems a little distant in the beginning (e.g. looking out in the distance), but quickly warms with passionate kisses and eye contact, ending in sincere, passionate embrace. However, comes back to logical senses and quickly grabs clothes (same as previous scenes) thereafter and exists. → progressing to (2) - repaying Mango the favour… (distancing continues to grow stronger)
[Very likely that everything has occurred on the same day. Mango knows Alexa is leaving and is trying so hard to hold on to what they had/[are?]. Alexa is handling things a little differently, trying to distance herself, because she knows that The Road Goes On] -aside- TRGO(2) either birthed Memento, or was birthed from it
Black and White is mostly contemplation and melancholy - last scene seems happier, more optimistic however. Likely from the previous day or sometime earlier that week…?
Postlude – continues to contribute to story – Alexa IS more dominant (attire, stance, eye contact, etc), with Mango more submissive/vulnerable (as suspected) – [Mango trying to impress her ‘Mistress’ for reward]. Has Alexa (older) helped Mango (younger) in her sexual awakening/infatuation? Is that why Mango is holding on so tight, because Alexa is more special to her, than she is to Alexa…?
• Locations (particularly outdoor)
• Shots panning to lower body – still push further and hold more though
• Continuous long shots (particularly Scene III – 12:26-23:05 (10min 39sec) – longest yet!!!
• Natural lighting – in latest films lighting has been an issue for me, especially with the way it has altered skin tones – here was great!
Sexual side notes:
• Love how Mango licks her fingers before she pleasures any girl she’s with. That’s her little thing!
• Alexa rests her foot behind the crook of her (opposite) knee/ on calf when she orgasms
• Two of the most beautiful girls ever, kissing! Mmm… Mmm… bliss! :)
I absolutely love it! I knew these two had chemistry based on what I saw in Cross-dressing, but this really sizzles! It has the gentle loveliness of say ‘Stay’ or ‘Jealousy: Vol. 2’ (hand-holding, nose kissing, smiling, mutual masturbation, etc.), but also the blazing passion and naughtiness of ‘Pasión: Vol. 1’ (genuine and powerful orgasms, rougher play, some postlude kink and BDSM). It’s a perfect combination, and perfectly reflective of a ‘warm and fulfilling’ relationship shared by two lovers, enthusiastic to push and explore the boundaries of their relationship and sexual being. Congrats! Congrats! Congrats!
Just a few quick notes too:
- I love when we get to see our girls out and about in public (TRGO(2), and here). It sheds such an authentic light on the realism of the relationship.
- When Tracy was kneeling before Amarna and you were shooting close up of the dildo, if you had of zoomed out just a little, you would have been able to capture Tracy’s legs and feet a little better. Given that it’s Tracy too, these features are something I feel should never be missed!
- If you are able to, with copyrights and what not, please remember to credit your score for the film
Thanks again Alis, and thank you Tracy and Amarna. You two are just so awesome! :) I can see why Alis cast both of you in this film. It’s because of your fun, outgoing nature, coupled with your naughty confidence, particularly regarding your sexuality. It’s your work, and your aura, and my utter respect for you that is helping me to grow more sexually confident in myself too! :) Thank you so much guys :)

Oh Rose! YES PLEASE! I'm very excited for this! After PTMA(2), I'm very excited to see what Alis has done with this next entry! I hope he's developed it even further...
I can already tell it's going to be chemistry, chemistry, chemistry with these two! I can't wait to hear what they have to say either Rose... Our comments section is going to be set alight, and that's maybe even more exciting than the film itself!
SO VERY EXCITED!!!! Thank you for the write up :)
Thursday, January 8th, 2015 on Preview – Ariel Rebel and Amarna Miller come together!
Hey Melena :) Thanks for writing in our comments section. Its always so nice to read you :) Know that we all love you too! With your gorgeous energy and smile, who couldn't?!? Haha. Thanks again. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas by the way!!!
I don’t want to say too much, because I want to write an in depth analysis of ‘Love For Sale’ as a whole, and I’d rather avoid repetition.
What I will say is that I don’t think its coincidence the release of this series coincided with Interstellar. Where Interstellar sought to broaden our understanding of emotion and relationships, both in literal and metaphoric relation to the universe (in amongst many other things [I still continue to ponder and discuss]), this film (and I would suggest series) broadens the notion of sexuality (also in amongst other things). I can already see these works informing one another. Please take this as a massive compliment.
Additionally, Alis, the greatest artists of our time actually have but a few simple things to say. Across their broad and dynamic range of work exists a continuation of ideas and themes, each time adapted, each time offering a fresh perspective and further illumination. I can feel echoes of Be My Slave: Vol. 2, Secretly: Vol. 2, The Heat: Vol. 2, Stay, IBDS: Vol. 2. This appears to be the coalescence of all your greatest works, to form perhaps... your greatest work.
Finally, congratulations Tracy. Really, honestly, you killed it! I’m in awe of your passion and commitment as an actress. It’s admirable, and it’s downright sexy in the same way McConaughey and Woodley (just examples) are. You freakin' go girl!
P.S. I wanted to write so much more, but it will come in due time. I get the feeling I'm going to have lots to take in, and lots to learn! I'm genuinely excited!
Monday, November 10th, 2014 on Love For Sale - Harder - Chapter 1
I'm not sure if I mentioned it in my comment or not, but what you mention in your second paragraph is something I noted from the film too; about bodies resting on each other. I whole-heartedly support that. Forgoing this for the benefit of the viewer, in my eyes, accomplishes the exact opposite of it's intentions. It's about connection between performers, that's what I find most erotic.

_fer, Rose and Andrej,
You all already know my stance on this and it's particularly strong. In the interest of maintaining the peace however, I'll reserve my critique this time and ask that you watch this instead. Andrej, please consider it when framing, panning and shooting through objects: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsI8UES59TM.

Hey Kiara, you're very welcome, it's nothing more than a credit-where-credit's due matter :) Stay motivated, I know I adore you work (and you) and would love see lots more.
Thank you! :) You too :)
_fer_ and Larry. I read your comments. I love them :) I like the idea of Alexa being a 'projection'. I could see this as a being a Nina/Lily type thing for sure. I might have to reassess, because I after reading your comments, I feel like merging your idea with mine will probably get us pretty close to what Alis was intending :)
P.S. _fer_, I've been working on a little somethin', somethin', you know... Nina/Lily style. But shh... You should get the reference, I honestly hope others don't :)
Monday, September 21st, 2015 on Outlines Episode 2 - Riders On The Storm
I get the feeling ‘SHOWTIME’ is a critique on photographic or, more appropriately, filmic GAZE – and I think it extends even further to describe a PARASOCIAL RELATIONSHIP involving scopophilia and objectification.
So… I guess a good place to start is with the camera and television, which facilitate GAZE and allow us, the viewer, to see something that we’d never otherwise see. To help you make sense of that, let me give you an example – I’ve never been to New York, but I’ve seen it, because I’ve seen photos of it and watched films like Taxi Driver. Thus in many ways too, I’m able to project what it might be like to be in New York for real. But, and this is very important, that GAZE of which I’m privy to, presents something that in reality, is likely very, very different from my imaginings of it – regardless of how informed those imaginings are.
Now with this film, and the GAZE it presents, what we’re seeing that we’d never otherwise see, is not a location like I’ve described above, but a person… Melena. And it’s incredibly important here that; made-up like a doll, clothed in these really eye-catching, fetishistic-fashion items and set against a derelict backdrop… she’s emphasised as being the most gorgeous fucking thing in existence (and Melena, you pretty much are babe!). Add to that the dark, blue-hued lighting, which also makes the pink of Melena’s beautiful pussy the brightest thing in frame, and what you’re engaging with is a visual dreamscape that allows you to embellish in whatever scopophilic desires you please. But you have to remember, those are just desires, just imaginings… because this is just a GAZE. Yes Melena’s looking at us, directly addressing us, and demanding we engage with her, but that’s just it… this isn’t real, this relationship is entirely PARASOCIAL and Melena’s nothing more than object of our desires. No matter how many times she looks down that lens, that lens will always separate us – and our lens, the television, serves to remind us of that – (just think of yourself as Melena in those opening few seconds trying to grip nothingness). But… and this is a very big but, because otherwise our viewing of this film would seem a very sad existence indeed… that’s not the only thing the television does. The television also acts as a medium for self-examination, for Melena, but most importantly for us. Through television, through film, we’re able to examine and learn things about GAZE, about PARASOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS; about ourselves… and also about how ridiculously perfect Melena is ;)
Now, I also want to add here that, while I was watching this I could literally feel my brain undergoing neurogenesis; it was firing action potential after action potential connecting synapses that have just never been connected before, and what I experienced was like… a neuronal orgasm. Different completely from the typical orgasm, but now that I’ve got an understanding of this, I’m going to go back and re-watch it. I’m interested in what happens this time round ;)
Also… As for the postlude, I have no idea… All I know is its HOT and that I that If I ever get ahold of those heels, there’s no telling what mischief I’d get up to with them ;)
Lastly, thank you Alis Locanta! To me, visual poetry is something that can only be accomplished by an elite few – those who represent the most intelligent and most visionary filmmakers across time. This is visual poetry.

Love this comment Steph! Especially cause of your LIAD reference, and because of the lighting reference too. This is very much a dream-scape and those lighting choice are 100% used to inform us of that. Just look at what Kubrick did in Eyes Wide Shut :) Cool to know you're a lighting designer in dance and theatre by the way! That's really awesome!
Next, Melena IS not just A freakin' goddess, she's THE freakin' goddess. Holy hell she's scorching!!!!! You and I have such similar taste in women :) Total respect girl! I know down the track, you're going to like that little fact ;)
Lastly. Hell yeah on the heels! Those ones in the 'water' scene, I want them in my mouth!!!!!!

Just what I needed after a crazy day of study! Thanks Don!!! :) And thanks little Mango :) You're a cutie - with your cutie tan, and cutie pink nail polish, and cutie anklet, and cutie everything!
Tuesday, September 1st, 2015 on Mismoda
This hit all the right notes in terms nostalgia and associated eroticism, and ticked all the right boxes in terms of technicality and structuring. Compliments to those involved with sound-editing (brilliant!) and especially camerawork - that's natural/reflected lighting that rivals the best of Viv Thomas. Congrats also to the girls who excelled in their portrayal of real-life, every-day girlfriends - there wasn't a false note anywhere.
Thank you Team A&A, Kiara and Timea for this little slice of happiness :)
P.S. Go Kiara! You gotta love a blondie who'll wrap her gorgeous legs around you!

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 on Ducina
Ok, so let me try this again.
This set confirms it - you are, undisputedly, my favourite MetArt photographer. You always work with the most 'beautiful' girls, and you always bring out both sides of that beauty (physical and internal) in the most fun, vibrant and sex way. You understand posing and the value of personality just as well, if not better than any VS or SI Swim photographer, and you understand how to best fill your frame. Add to that your ability to shoot with vibrant, uplifting, joyous colour and light, and I'm wowed regularly by your ability and class. Were I Melena, I'd look at these photos of myself and I'd just think, "wow, these make me feel so confident and special and beautiful - I'm like a naughty, sexy, awesome princess!". And for a girl to that as those images and feel that way, I'd just be so grateful that you captured and helped me discover that.
Did I mention you're a frickin' goddess?!?! lol. Your work always brings so much joy and happiness with it, and for that I can only say thank you. Thank you Melena for being so ridiculously awesome!!!
Tuesday, August 11th, 2015 on Thami
I'm WAAAAAAY to overwhelmed right now to say anything of important, but what i will say is... Melena, you are a frickin' goddess babe, a frickin' perfect, amazing, wonderful goddess!!!!
As you know Alis, I'm not normally one for B/G, but i'll be following this one for sure! :)
Thanks for the preview Rose :)
Thursday, July 23rd, 2015 on Love For Sale 2: sophisticated and seductive cinematic storytelling!
Hey Steph :) I just sent a message to Alis and Amarna on Twitter, asking them if they could write this for Lorena and Alexa. Fingers (and toes) crossed!!!
Maybe you're picturing a little Que Es Le Pasion: Vol. 3?
Some good stuff, and some not so good stuff. Let's start with the good.
I liked how the narrative unfolded, in that it was all essentially a set-up leading to that final postlude and final message. A message which I think perfectly encapsulates the poetry on which this is based. Anissa, leading/guiding Alexa into the darker side of sexuality/love/pleasure. I loved the hints and inklings you presented throughout also: that one tiny cut of the postlude in the opening, and a similar scenario presented in the mirror early on too. Artistically/conceptually, this succeeds, however as the chemistry was lacking it fails to reach into the upper echelon of your output. Also, before I move onto the bad, let me just say: that opening scene was sexiness defined, leggy girls in jeans are one of my greatest weaknesses, a little bottom licking makes me feel naughty and it's something I think should be incorporated into future SexArt features, should the model be open to it.
Now the bad:
- This fell into the old Alis trap. Long shot, medium shot that wanders from pussy to face, close ups that focus only on pussies, breasts and faces. It's a bad trap... a very BAD trap. Don't fall into it. You know the reasons why! ;) You're not missing the action if you wander down that gorgeous leg of Alexa's, your adding to it in a different way, and different is GOOD!
- Location. You have to be really careful and considerate about where you shoot which movies. You really can't go shooting something like this or I've Been Missing U in a location such as this. I know there are restraints and what not, but the surfaces are too clinical, hard, cold, and as such they just don't suit films like this. That location detracts from the story. So you're goign to need to alter the location itself, or change the location of shooting.
Let me point you to 2 VT scenes and I want you to watch them and evaluate the location only. Which one would be better for PTMA and why? The answer should be VERY, VERY clear!
And just so you know Vol. 2 presented the perfect location in which to shoot idea. It's warm and it captured that 'market' feel... and there were some flowers and maybe even some birdcages too if I remember correctly.
- It's too similar. Vol. 2, 3 and 4 are all a little too similar for my liking. Yes, they're all good films, but I've seen them done in this way before. When you shoot a new volume for your anthology collections you must think about (Re;). And by that I mean, all the words and associations from it. re-invent, re-imagine, re-invigorate, re-define, etc. (Re;), it's the BIG IDEA you need to think about when shooting new volumes in your anthologies.
- I know you're like Nolan in that you want to keep things flowing, and keep your pace deliberate, so you edit accordingly. Well, sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not. Here it's not because it doesn't add to the scene (I've seen you use it to convey immediacy before, this is GOOD!), but here it's just an 'out' because the girls would likely have fumbled with their jeans and heels, and not known when to move the little perch thingie. Just remember, sometimes it's ok to watch the girls fumble because it tells us that this is real.
I think that's it Alis. Hope it's helpful :)
Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 on Pour Toi Mon Amour 3
I commented not too long ago about this idea, I'm not sure where though... I'd think 'Doubleface' given the similarities and Julia's casting (once again). I'm curious if you read that comment and decided to develop it? In any case, after reading _fer_realz_ comment I had to watch, mostly in part because this is an idea that can only be expressed in B/G film (as far I'm concerned anyway).
Because this film compares, contrasts and challenges the ideas of gender and relationship conventions and desires. We have the 'generally male' perspective of picking a woman up in a bar/club and having naughty, wild, drunken, one-night-stand sex - and we also have the 'generally female perspective' of making love within an ongoing, romantic relationship. Which one is preferred, which one is better? And in fact... do you even have to chose? This was one couple and perhaps this was all role-play? In any case it's that ambiguity that lets the viewer detail the film in their way, and which makes it extremely special.
A killer concept Alis, and brilliantly executed! Seriously! It's brilliant! This is a B/G film that I actually enjoyed - because it wrapped me up in psychology and concept! And Julia is really cool! She has such a unique look and vibe, and she brings something very different and exciting to your films. I hope we see more of her Alis, especially in G/G outings :)
Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 on J&J
Hi MonCapitan :)
I think you'll find the reason she dons that lingerie is because that's part of her 'Reminiscence'. I can't say with certainty, but I'd suggest that on that camera, Michaela is looking at pics of her partner, and that in those pics, she's wearing that same lingerie. What we witness thereafter is a 'Reminiscence' based on Michaela's reaction to those pics.
Thursday, May 21st, 2015 on Reminiscence
Hell yeah Rose! You said it! Melena is so awesome :)
This is an anthology I'm desperate to approach, but am hesitant too because of the b/g factor. I think I'll have to with Alexa this time round though...
But, is there any chance you could do a g/g Vol. 3? Whitney's spider-web story from 'GLS- Mistress' would fit perfectly! And... I'm certain she would be open to collaborating with you ;)
Sunday, April 12th, 2015 on Possessione 2
Hi... sorry, I didn't see your comment before posting. But yes, Xena in our films would be awesome!
Kiara! Let me please preface this by saying I that I think you're an awesome girl, and that I appreciate everything you bring to SexArt as an actress, a person and a member of our wonderful community. I honestly have a great deal of respect for you (even though I don't 'really' know you, haha) :)
I have to respectfully disagree with you on the smoking front however. It is something a great percentage of the population engage in, but that doesn't make it good choice. As I said above, I have a background in health, and I've seen too many people suffer the backlash of it's effects. The first ever death certificate one of my girlfriends (her 3rd week as an Intern) wrote, was for a 52 year old man who had developed lung cancer from cigarettes. I'll never forget her telling me the story of how she had to deliver the news to his wife and 3 children. It broke her heart, and it broke mine listening to it.
I know you're an adult, you're actually 1 year older than me, and I know you're going to make your own decisions and do whatever you want, and so you darn well should! This is just something very close to my heart, and I couldn't keep my mouth closed on the topic. Awareness is key! And it doesn't matter what age you are, you are never too old to learn, adapt and change for the betterment of yourself and your relationships.
I'm very sorry if I've caused any offence by sharing this view, and I'm also sorry for getting a little somber and emotional with this comment, it's just as I said, very close to my heart.
Thank you again for your contributions at SexArt! I hope we get to experience lots more with you, cause you're a really cool, really awesome girl! :)
Monday, March 30th, 2015 on What Happens When Episode 5
I think the thing that set VT apart is what harryben mentions above. The core actors and the insights we got into their personality; which made them feel real, the relationships portrayed feel real; which in turn allowed us to connect with them and that, on a real level.
SexArt is different, because it's more about 'Film': it's designed to illuminate, educate and inform. I look at VT more as 'TV': as the focus should be on the development of story, characters and relationships. Obviously there is a lot of cross-over there, but I hope my point seems clear enough.
What we need is the development of a VT family. Girls we grow to know and care about intimately; girls who allow the audience to connect with them just as much as their on-screen partners. I do understand this will take time. (It's taken 3 years here on SexArt, and we are only just establishing it now). The advantage is VT is a part of the MetArt brand now, and what we have at SexArt: directors, actresses, visions; can be transferred and (loosely) adapted to the original VT format.
I really do have high hopes for this new film. I have a feeling it will deliver :)

Rose. I know you will definitely appreciate this, because how amazing is the costume design in this series!?!? Eva has definitely outdone herself. These clothes are drop dead-gorgeous! Congrats Eva!
Friday, March 13th, 2015 on Memento - Second Act
I absolutely agree _fer_. What amazes me is that I originally thought the Alexa/Mango relationship was based on sexual infatuation, but you're so right because I now realise how emotional it was! That's genius writing/plot technique at it's best!
I've again posted my notes below, and I feel as though I'm starting (if not on page, then in my own head) to put the pieces together. I'd love for you to read and give me your thoughts :) I'd really appreciate it!
Order of lovers – ???, Lola, then Alexa.
New relationship, different story - works off it’s own accord, but also offers insight into the workings of the Mango/Alexa relationship, and vice versa with previous Act.
Different mood! Where Alexa’s Act was somber, regretful, contemplative, Lola’s is more sexually charged/oriented – Why? – Mango had deeper feelings (of love?) for Alexa. The Alexa relationship didn’t revolve around sex (as was first believed). So… If Mango was in ‘love’ with Alexa, why is she reverting back to a ‘sex-driven’ present? Does she use sex to overcome grief? Note however that the last B&W scene is still a little somber… Lingering thoughts of Alexa that cannot yet be overcome?
3. (I) Outside. Lola and Mango making out. [Note! Another suitcase]. Lola leaving, but Mango not as sad. For her, Lola was just about sex? Didn’t seem as though it hurt as much to see Lola leave.
2. (II) Watching Lola pack her bag, doesn’t seem all that concerned about it. Not like she was with Alexa. Same attire again. Sex quickly ensues. Reinforces notion of this being a sex driven relationship.
1. (III) Giving her a dress as a parting gift? Same clothes. Again, sex quickly ensues.
• B&W Scene 3 suggests Mango want to be dominated – Mango is dominating in colour though… Replaying as she wants it, or as her partner was? Note that the replay function is becoming more noticeable also. How accurately is Mango actually remembering all this? Reinforces idea of these memories being older, but perhaps something else too?
• Length of scene. No mistake that this was much shorter and based strictly on raunchy, hot, no fuss, SEX! There wasn’t much emotion on display, or time dedicated to exploring it (it was there in very small touches though, i.e. kissing hands). This was just about a physical connection
• All in the same day again. We are seeing the last day of a relationship. Why? Meaning to the story - or meaning for writer/director – or both? Is the end of a relationship and how we end the most important, the most indicative of how a relationship worked? Hmm…
Does Lola’s relationship set the stage for Alexa’s? With Lola, it failed (are these failed relationships? What’s the story with the suitcases?) because it was strictly physical. With Alexa it seemed both physical and emotional, (and perhaps mental too) – a combination of lessons learned from previous lovers? Will scene 3 show Mango experiencing a Mental connection?
Lola giving in to Mango very quickly, not giving her something to chase like Alexa did… Note that Lola physically touches Mango (early) and just goes straight into the sex, whereas Alexa engaged her through mind and emotion, before connecting physically.
• Incredible sound control outdoors! Windy, plus external sounds (dog barking, insects, etc) and yet everything was incredibly well controlled, with the sexual encounter remaining the central sound focus. This is how it’s done!!!!
• More IBDS. Shots of hands (including jewelry), skin, lips, hair, bums (Lola's!!!) etc. Keep it up, it’s soooo hot and sultry and sexy!
• Minimal (if any) lower body (legs and feet) medium shots and close ups. Very disappointed…
Note for Alis!
This series is extremely personal for me. Which is incredible, because I know as a director, it’s most personal to you. To be able to tell a story that reaches your heart, and the hearts of many is an incredible accomplishment. I know it’s not done yet, but so far, this has achieved just that! Relationships and experiences from our past, present and future will all be affected by, inform and educate one another. What amazes me is that this concept/theory is something I have been considering for a very long time, and it was in fact, Memento that inspired that pattern of thinking. I honestly cannot believe that Alis! I honestly can’t.
P.S. Mango… you are one spoilt little angel. Alexa and Lola… How do you even do it girl?!?!? But, you know what, you deserve to be spoiled… Thank you for all your efforts so far, I can’t wait to see the next (and perhaps final? Act).
Yep. Candi is the one to chase. It's her, or perhaps a little more realistically, someone just like her. Maybe I'm being a little too ambitious even then?... haha.
I agree. When I saw the poster, and that particular brunette/blonde combo, I melted. Two of our most beautiful and most talented actresses together... I say thank you Alis!
Wednesday, March 11th, 2015 on Mango – sweet, juicy and delicious!
- Yes, she's very much SexArt's Candice Swanepoel. Candi also happens to be my ultimate crush!!!
- Glad you agree. She was my favourite in the original, and I know she'd be even better come round 2.
- I know what you mean... but, it'd still love to see it. Mango is naturally very sensitive, sensual and submissive; you tell by her aura, and the roles that Alis casts her in (Alis is a master at casting). I'd definitely be interested in seeing Mango's dominant side though, it would have to be with the right girl. I know she's not with us anymore, but I can see her owning Michaela Isizzu
- Excellent news! I can't wait. Thanks for the tease :)
Rose! Such an awesome topic. Mango is just the best!
I love her most because she's a 'naughty angel'! It's exactly as you say; she has that sweet, gorgeous, innocent persona that just makes you want to know and romance her little socks off, haha. But Mango's not one-sided, because she also has that carefree, sexy, (very) naughty attitude too. And I feel like in her real-life she would make you work to see that side too. I also love her because she's here at SexArt, she has wonderful acting talent and she has a growing film catalogue that is starting to rival the great Whitney Conroy!... and even the best in Hollywood!
It's so difficult to pick a favourite fllm... why Rose, why!?!? Haha. Ok. I think it has to be Stay, and that's for the sentiments the film carries (i.e. the vulnerability we open ourselves up to in true love, and the trust we place in our partner as a result).
What do I want to see in the future? Anything! Whatever Mango is part of, I wanna be first in line to see it! But, I would like to see:
- Her paired with Whitney Conroy
- Her having sex on the beach, re: Horizont and The Sea Mousse (but in bright sunlight)
- An increasing number of SexArt photosets (we only see her once every few months) by both Vlad and Caravaggio
- Her leading a rebooted 1-Hour (42min) Haute Couture Special, that's very VS Fashion Show
Thanks for the post Rose. And thank you Mango! You're just toooooo pretty (and awesome).
Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 on Mango – sweet, juicy and delicious!
Alis and Members,
Much like it's story-driven Nolan namesake, I don't think any of this is really going to fall into place until the last few minutes of the Final Act.
So... I thought an interesting way for me to contribute and give back while the series is still running, would be to post the notes that I make for each 'Act'. These are the notes that I generally make for all my film reviews, before structuring and finalising them into something that makes sense.
Once the series has reached it's completion, I'll then compile them before posting a Film/Series Review as a Blog Piece. I hope it's a good idea...
I really don’t have too much to add here. It’s a gorgeous film, but for me, it’s not much more than that. I think that comes down to the issue of rebooting too soon, and in turn failing to add anything overtly fresh in the way of story and theme.
I did however love the ‘Haute Couture’ – Fashion-esque postlude. If you are struggling for new ideas, and I can completely understand if that’s the case, you work your butt off!!! But, that is certainly a series that I feel could be rebooted and/or adapted. The original, for my liking, had a great number of shortcomings, and I’d love to see an updated Alis 2.0 version of it, with a much greater emphasis on Fashion and less on explicit sex.
Wednesday, March 4th, 2015 on Unplugged 2
This was a really interesting read, especially your last point about male/female singers. I totally agree. I remember feeling this way before, but I guess maybe I just got used to it. Now that you point it out though, everything comes straight back and it just makes so much sense. I'd love to see more female representation in the music of SexArt.
To your musical tastes, could I suggest:
The Naked and Famous ('Hearts Like Ours')
Broods ('Bridges' or 'Superstar').
Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 on Slippery When Wet
Thanks for the tip Rose. I will make an exception for this one, Lola's talent is just too amazing, it would be sacrilege not to watch... especially in the hands of Alis! And Lola's eyes... they are very definition of sexual gravitation! No wonder Alis selected her for her role in 'The Heat: Vol 2'. She really does 'own you' with those pretty green eyes!
P.S. Alis, any updates as to whether or not you can make my Lola idea reality?
- A single, continuos take
- A full-body shot of Lola in a lacy bodysuit/lingerie with gorgeous hair and make-up, jewellery, painted nails, heels (peep-toe pumps please)
- Lola's eyes and facial expressions are the main character, with some very minimally and vaguely suggestive physical sexual innuendo (i.e. rubbing/crossing/opening of legs), so as not to distract from...
What I envision as Lola's eyes and expressions (smiles, O-rgasm, licking/biting of lips, etc) and what the viewer discovers in them... Everyone, including Lola, will have a different story for the duration of that experience. A testament to the value of mental engagement during sex, and an experiment in incomplete context.
I've been thinking lots Alis, and I would love to contribute a screenplay to SexArt. It would be such an honour and privilege. Please let me know what you think of this idea? And, I have another one too, should you be interested. I figure there is no harm in asking :)

Rose :) I love your second sentence. That's exactly how I felt about the film, and what I've written below. It was romantic AND naughty; neither is mutually exclusive here, but combined in a 'warm and fulfilling' way. The love/sex connection shared here indicates that these woman are completely in tune with each other: mentally, physically, emotionally.
And I loved the position you talked about too, but mostly because I love when Tracy is on her toes. The definition it gives to her whole body, but her legs and butt especially is phenomenal. I'd love to see what Caravaggio would do with her in a set of heels. (But take them off around picture 80, cause I wanna see her pretty feet too please, haha) Such a goddess!!!....
A wonderful addition to your GLS series! I loved how this 'sort-of' broke from the format of previous entries; I only wish you'd pushed even further outside the box. Just in case you missed it, I proposed some ideas on 'Noche de Fiesta'. I really feel it's time for Alis 2.0 to introduce GLS 2.0.
All I can say is thank you for what you bring to SexArt and it's members. A fun-loving, confident, enthusiastic, opportunistic and inspiring disposition that makes you one hell of a special lady, and one heck of a role model for young women (and men). It was incredible to hear your story, and a pleasure to hear your 'other' one too, haha. Thank you for sharing something so deeply personal with us! I adore you and I hope to see so much more of your work with Alis and the SexArt brand :) We are oh so lucky to have you!

I absolutely love Ariel's portrait! Between hers and Amarna's, they are the most professional and gorgeous looking of all our models. This is definitely the quality SexArt needs to shoot for in the future. See what I did there ;), haha.
And, it doesn't relate to anything, but that floral top in the last image is ridiculously pretty! Great work Eva :) I can't wait to see this in motion :)
Sunday, December 21st, 2014 on Ariel Rebel: my first experience of shooting for SexArt!
Ariel, you are totally freakin' awesome! This was such a delight to read. To gather that behind-the-scenes insight into your personality and sexuality, your artistic drive, your experiences with the girls, and your genuine love for your work is just invaluable. It's an absolute pleasure and privilege to have you here! You've added so much to the SexArt community already, and I hope you will continue too. You'll always be welcome and always adored! Thank you again so very, very much! You're a little legend! :)
Also Ariel, this was seriously, genuinely, erotic writing. I know Amarna has collaborated with Alis on a screenplay before, and the film product was gorgeous! I think that you should write him and ask for the opportunity if you're interested. There is absolutely no harm in asking and I'm certain inside that pretty little head of yours, lay some beautiful and artistic ideas just waiting to be realised!
Andrej and Ariel,
To the comments of others I have very little to add. I do want to say that watching this scene brang a pure sense of joy! Every element here represents so strongly what I love: water, summer, women, happiness, an outdoor location with beautiful furniture (etc.). Like _fer_realz_, I do wish bikini's had of been added to this mix, but that's quite nitpicky and based on personal taste. On the whole, I loved it!
Akio and Tracy have both slowly grown on me, to the point where they are now two of my favourite models here at SexArt. Tracy really is killing it! Like Rose said, it's great to see her in so many different roles, which demonstrate just how dynamic her personality and acting ability is. And yep Rose, her ass is ridiculously gorgeous! Akio has truly come into her own too. To be honest, my eyes were mostly on her, and god is that a compliment, because Tracy is close to the epitome of hotness! Aiko's skin tone, her eyes and the little freckle between them, her legs, her little girl and her little toes, everything is just perfect! Please bring both ladies back, more and more and more!
Lastly, and I wont harp on too much about it, but yes it's gorgeous, but again it's beautiful porn. It's saving grace is that is SUPER beautiful with two incredible actresses. But I want more, and to be honest, I think the SexArt brand demands more.
Sorry guys. I know you're uber busy and have waaaaay too much on your plate! I hope soon enough the pressure will come off you, as VT finds more filmmakers, and then you can get back to quality over quantity. I do understand however that for now, quantity is what's being asked for. You still have my complete and utter support though! I think you guys are all amazing!
Friday, December 19th, 2014 on Shards of Summer
Hi Ariel :) Thank you for your reply! You're very welcome :) It's such a privilege to read you :) Thank you also for your compliments! It means a lot, really :)
I would love to see a sex on the beach scene! I'm a total beach baby myself, so that would be totally awesome! Use your powers of persuasion and encourage Alis as best you can! :)
I actually saw on Alis' twitter a little while ago, a pic of you and Lola! I think that's what I'm most excited for! I can't wait!
Thanks again Ariel! It's so nice to have you at SexArt, and also in our comments section :)
Thursday, December 18th, 2014 on Incandescence - Ariel Rebel
Alis, this is an extremely intelligent and considered piece: it’s absolutely awesome!
Exploring the duality and dynamics of a relationship and the partners within it, we’re first presented with our girls as single, separate entities. The traits they bring to the relationship are clearly defined: Mango offers fun, flirtation and sexual energy, where Julia brings her shy, intimate, sensual aura.
Intelligently casting ‘against type’ however, and with clever use of lighting and actress positioning (note the room switch); as Locanta’s story unfolds, we see the girls begin to shed/evolve from their defined characteristics, essentially switching traits as the story progresses: i.e. they become more like each other. This detail reaches its metaphoric pinnacle through a session of mutual masturbation and an ensuing scene of redressing, in which the girls switch clothes.
What we have is a multifaceted (doublefaced) relationship, involving two multifaceted (doublefaced) partners: and thus, a relationship that continues to intrigue, offering mystery and exploration.
Congrats Alis 2.0! Another 2014 masterpiece :)
Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 on Doubleface
I could not have said that any better myself Rose. Those sentiments need to be framed! :) I love that SexArt cares so much for its girls and puts such a strong emphasis on it's female market! It's invaluable!
Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014 on Love For Sale - Milestone - Chapter 4
Hey _fer_realz_, I know I'm missing out and that's what disappoints me. But some of the dialogue, which is soooo incredibly important to this project is completely incomprehensible. This needs to be rectified, if not for me, then for Alis' sake as an artist, and Adam's sake as writer. They're being let down too. Big time!
Sunday, November 30th, 2014 on Love For Sale - Milestone - Chapter 4
Andrej and Ariel,
I’m beginning to worry a little that your roles at VT have influenced the type of content you’re producing for SexArt. This is another piece of beautiful porn, the problem being that it lacks the thematic storytelling I expect from SexArt film. I hope I’m wrong, because I know you guys are capable of more transcendent work, and I hope we’ll be seeing something fresh and different soon. Yes, as far as beautiful porn goes, the video is a wonderful effort, but even still, I honestly wanted to like it so much more than I did.
On the positive side, the opening was fantastic. I’m a summer person and a real beach baby, and I have a bit of a fashion fetish too (Aiko’s dress and shoes are soooo pretty!): so you caught my attention early. What turned the whole thing on its head was the girls rolling around with wet bodies and wet clothes in the sand… I’ve never had a problem with sand before, ever, but here I did. Dry bodies and dry sand can actually feel quite nice, wet bodies and dry sand but… it’s icky! And those poor dresses!
Additionally, and I’m extremely surprised to be saying it because you guys always capture and edit intimacy; but the shooting and editing of the sexual content in this film was sub-par. I expect their were difficulties involved with reflections, but the still (lack of panning), fixed cameras, and the regulated hard cuts (long, medium, close up, repeat) drained a great deal of authenticity from this piece. I was surprised and disappointed.
To finish on a highly positive side, however, I must say that our girls looked stunning. Congrats to Marcela! In particular too, I want to mention Aiko. I’ve had three experiences with Aiko as an actress. In her first scene with Alyssa Reece (for SexArt), I must admit, I saw her merely as an extra. [Faith is a wonderful example of the type of film I expect from SexArt by the way guys]. In her next appearance with Tracy Lindsay (for VT), I thought she played a great supporting role, but now in her third appearance, I see her as a leading lady, and a gorgeous ‘role model’ of sorts. Aiko’s beautiful: her skin/tan is soft, radiant and healthy, she’s looking fit and toned, happy and smiley, and she seems to bring a/her genuine, kind personality to her work. So, Aiko, if you’re reading this, ‘please keep up the great work. You’re beautiful and talented!’
Thanks to all involved. I know you guys put your heart and soul into every video you make, and as long as I can tell that, even if it falls short, I’ll still be content, happy and grateful.
Friday, November 7th, 2014 on Touch of Sun
Don - It's been so long since yours and Miela's 'Gavese'! I'm so happy to see her work again. Miela's obviously done lots of work health and fitness wise, and it's really paid off. She's got one of the most toned bodies in the world right now! She looks happier, sexier and more radiant for it too! Congrats on another beautiful photoset. Please keep them coming. I love the new Miela!
Jon - Can we shoot another film with her?
Thursday, October 16th, 2014 on Wahio
Welcome to SexArt! I'm so glad to found the site. SexArt has really changed what porn is, and can be. Personally I see this as Erotic Film. Art is the philosophy behind SexArt film and with thematic and conceptual intent, it seeks to inform, educate and illuminate it's audience about sexuality, and more so, the human condition. Can I please recommend to you The Heat: Vol. 2. That film explores sex in it's warmest and fulfilling form: the combining of physical, mental and emotional selves. I hope you will find something really special and meaningful in it if you decide to watch.
Monday, October 6th, 2014 on Unplugged
Wow, how on earth could I have missed that? My only excuse is that I was blinded and dumbstruck by the two most exceptional women on the planet!
Saturday, April 14th, 2018 on Examine
No, absolutely not. We have more solo girl movies in the pipeline.
File is irretrievably damaged I'm afraid.
Spike is right it is all about marketing.... Not the best of Nancy, not her fault the camera work and directino was not that good. Shame really expected more.
I think it's mostly about marketing. They would like you to purchase a membership to MetArtX which is all solo girl.
I completely agree, it would also open up the opportunity for team Lupin Fawn to shoot videos with models that don't do couple shoots and give us, the fans, the opportunity to see these models in that Lupin video quality that we don't really get anywhere else :-)
Hehe btw, as one who is a fan of playing with words I still can't help but smile of the fact that we have a couple with one person named Lupin and one named Fawn :-P
And now that we are at it, three cameramen with surnames that can all be used to describe a person (forget the english word for it), as in: "he is a sweet, humble, climber" :-D
Cara only shoots solo, she has some very hot solo movies on MetArt X.
Please let me know what issues you are experiencing? The movie plays and downloads in all formats for me with no problem. I would like to resolve this.
Honestly Sydney this is the reason I'm losing interest in SexArt and likely not going to be renewing my subscription when it runs out in June. I'm just not into the boy/girl as much as girl/girl except for a few scenes that have been few and far between and I've yet to see a single solo girl photo gallery since joining I've felt I really had to download. A lot of the time I just feel like they're uninspired and generic.
I the reason for this might have to do with how the powers that be at MetArt want to reorganize their sites. While they haven't come out and made an announcement I believe they plan on making SexArt strictly boy/girl in the same way VivThomas is now MetArt's go to girl/girl site and The Life Erotic is now strictly solo girl.

Ditto Sydney, can't wait to see that film with Tracy and Alexis as well. That tease on the blog seemed like a mighty long time ago...
Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017 on Me & Myself Part 1
It has been pushed back in the schedule for technical reasons, it's coming soon.
What do you mean? For a married hetero I think she does a great job with women.
Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 on Fight For Love
I agree. Nancy is a true model I think. Somehow she always manages to have her face to the camera, my only complaint about her. She is pretty and so is Katy and together they are hot. JUst wish I could join in.
Agree with much...the voyeur shots with the camera in another room that is used quite often along with the screen size gives me such a distant feel for what is going on....as for girls that don't like eating pussy you can tell right away and have never understood why the attempt to do it?.....that being said i find myself overlooking many things whenever Sybil is in a film....just seeing her in a bed is always a pleasure
Hi Sydney, the idea is to make movies available to all members across all sites, which differ in style from the typical content we release. We decided to start with a massage movie as it's a very popular but also a very particular niche (I think it's something you either love or hate). So far the response has been very positive. We want to experiment a little bit, to give members the chance to try something new without having to take out membership of lots of sites. How frequently they are released will probably depend on the demand for them. Also I just want to make it clear that this is something additional, it does not affect the usual number of free updates that members will get on every site.
Yeh! considering the large number of FF sets, 69s should be a LOT more pervasive in SexArt.
Hope they took note!
Saturday, January 28th, 2017 on Happy Day
What then is "lesbian porn"? Different consumers may come looking for different things, with different fantasies in mind. I'm all for "healthy lesbian relationships" in the real world, but in my fantasies it's not everyday domesticity and monogamy that I'm looking for. I come to erotica for fantasy, and my fantasy of women together is not of lesbians, for whom being with women is routine. Rather my fantasy is of straight or bi (or heteroflexible) women exploring something that is potentially for them new and perhaps a bit taboo.
Tuesday, January 17th, 2017 on Bracelet
Jon said it's on the To Do list, Sydney.
Not sure if I agree with you Sydney. When I am fingering a girl I am certainly serious about it and doing it because I like it, and then I sure love the result!
Monday, January 9th, 2017 on Bracelet
The post credits material was interesting. One thing I did notice was that Sybil can light up a room with her smile. She looks positively radiant when she does so. She's definitely a keeper.
Sunday, January 8th, 2017 on Like Waves
Thank you, Sydney.
As someone who prefers a forum to these movie/pic threads I don't often have much to say. But on this matter, I feel pretty strongly and very much agree.
I would love to see a surge in G/G for 2017.
Thursday, December 29th, 2016 on The Cove
I like the B/G scenes.
I thought of that Sydney..and I felt bad. I shouldn't have commented in the first place because if you have nothing nice to say..don't say anything.
I see what you're saying. I am not trying to be that way, but I feel like I have gotten pickier also. I don't know the Victoria's Secret models by heart...not since Heidi Klum retired, but yes. They are the label just like the models here have defined SexArt.
I have been told the films we see were filmed months prior. So it's best to just be patient. There may be comebacks for these favorites as we speak. :)
Friday, December 16th, 2016 on The best SexArt movie of 2016
You're not the only one. I've tried both the 1080p and 720p versions, and keep getting network errors.
Thank you, Sydney! It's disheartening not to see her work here as often. She is a talented artist and a beautiful person. At least there are a special handful of films with her in it... which I will never tire of. 😊
Who made you the expert Sydney? Let our team just get on with it!
I don't really feel we have gone backwards, there has been some amazing work done this year. But we are definitely all agreed we want 2017 to be our best year yet! There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes on all our sites with talented new directors and photographers who want to get involved, as well as discussions with our key production teams about how to bring in fresh and creative new ideas. It's looking very exciting!
Great list, Sydney, and I have brought this comment to Jon's attention because I think you make some really valuable points. Thanks to you and all members who have contributed feedback throughout 2016, it all helps us keep SexArt growing and evolving!
Thanks Sydney..I totally agree and change my tune now. It was a bad day for me, I was drunk out of my head and shouldn't start writing when in such a condition! :)
A great point Sydney, very well made. One of my all time favorite TV series, "Queer As Folk," featured straight men in the main roles because they were great actors, and this is becoming more and more common as rigid definitions of gender and sexuality become more fluid and some of the outdated prejudices melt away. The difference here is that our performers are actually having sex, not just acting it, and as Ariel says below, those that do it well have to be feeling something. We can all spot a fake! I don't think these labels of 'gay,' 'straight,' 'lesbian' etc are useful or relevant these days. I wrote a blog post a while back about pansexuality which talks in more depth about being attracted to a person rather than a gender. To come back to this movie, Nancy looks totally into what she's doing. If she's not genuinely turned on and having a great time, she deserves an Oscar!
Hi Sydney, I will look out for that, thank you! (: I appreciate the recommend. (:
It's erotica for god's sake, not Ben Hur. Andrej and Ariel are doing a great job, improving with every film. Love you Sexart!
I don't know if that's what they're after, Sydney. I used to be more optimistic, I'm not so much anymore.
Oh right! Thanks Sidney! I looked at it too literally. I read online the death tarot also could represent a rebirth or new beginning. Very interesting! I love the concept of this series. It was brilliant! The ladies have remarkable chemistry and Nick is such a beef cake. I love his arms and his scruffy face.
But...With all due respect, I disagree with your comment on the "Hope" episode not being eloquent. There was a lot of emotion between Lexi and Alexis. It was like watching a real-life couple in bloom, despite the strange way of meeting. Sometimes the best relationships come out of chaos. The flow of that episode was beautiful. The situation was so real and at the same time, displayed a far fetched fantasy. I'm sure most cases would not lead to something that romantic. Alexis really brought her A-game in the bedroom...well the couch anyway. Lexi was so adorable and probably overwhelmed with the back to back orgasms. The entire series was breathtaking! 😘
For me, just watching is not an option with Lorena. When she turns those eyes on the camera, she totally overwhelms it. This, and a recent MA video too, for example.
Thanks for the long comment Sydney, i really appreciate your cinematic mind, all the advice always welcome from you.
Remembrances? Being alone, the memory of a home movie made long ago by/with a special someone gets her in the mood for a more tangible encounter with that memory.
Yeah, but those over-the-shoulder shots are too good to leave out. I’d bet she’s a wonderful person; and, for sure, a great model.
I haven't. I'd like to, she seems like a cool girl!
No, there is another episode to come Sydney.
Actually when I saw the captions I thought of you and all the times when you've asked for them, Sydney. (: Looks like they finally got around to it!
Hi Sydney, Ariel says this was shot at an old mill near a town called Jihlava in Czech Republic. She remembers it well, it was a very good experience for everyone :-)
I will ask, Sydney.
Sunday, August 21st, 2016 on Faith
Really... according to whom? I guess all the people who create erotica in different media (dance, painting, sculpture etc) have nothing of value to say about the world or the 'human condition,' then? As I said, semantics.
You have a problem with the fact that I'm saying I think we don't make "porn"? Now I am confused. Do you really want to get into semantics? I think you understand what I am saying here, or are wilfully misunderstanding. I think your distinction between erotica and erotic film is unnecessary. Surely "erotic film" is one facet of "erotica" ? And no, of course I don't think our philosophy can be boiled down into one sentence.
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!
Monday, July 11th, 2016 on Girls Love Sex - Dana DeArmond
Not old, not recycled. Not pulled from archives in response to anything. Rest will help I'm sure.
I agree, Sydney. I've always had a sense of "creepiness" about a man interviewing a woman about sexual proclivities. To me it works much better as two women chatting.
Monday, May 30th, 2016 on Girls Love Sex - Elle Alexandra
Description says that it's a "lost" Bo Llanberis flick. So I would guess it goes back to the early days, when Bo was shooting for SA.
Elle is a favorite. I've followed her somewhat, to some sites that focus on letting performers authentically be themselves in a scene instead of doing a scripted performance crafted only to pander to male fantasies. She's still doing fantastic work. I wish SA could entice her to make a trip to Europe.
There are a lot of pairings where I think she could shine. I think I would keep her coupled with partners who are close to her age; who share the dynamic and passion that comes the fully developed sexual confidence and expression. I've mentioned Amarna downthread and at Horizont II. I'm sure that a pairing of Elle and Samantha Bentley would melt monitors and could easily end up being banned in future global warming treaties. Elle and Eufrat - easily scoring "E"s for excellence. I could go on, but what's the point? The key thing would be getting her back.
Elle - if by some chance you do drop by again, please know that there are some of us SA old-timers who miss you.
I agree with you totally about reconciliation and growth and admitting our mistakes.
And I know that I cannot speak for you, but I feel that part of MY frustration that is coming out in my comments lately is a lack of feedback from the MA management.
I am NOT saying Rose isn't doing her job. Rose will ALWAYS give us the best answer she is authorized to give ~ and, when she is not authorized to give one, she will give us the best, politest, most revealing she can, non-answer because to give us an actual answer would be to jeopardize her job or at least get herself in hot water.
I know this because on my job, I am in a similar position to Rose ~ I am the frontline so to speak and my residents look to ME for all kinds of answers I cannot give them and so I find the best answer I possibly can, which is an always polite but nevertheless non-answer non answer.
Jon should NOT have said "Gee, Sydney, I wish you'd tone it down ~ I'm not trying to censor you, but gosh, I wish you'd censor yourself..." and if he doesn't like the tone of your or any other members' comments he needs to get into the conversation a little more often and give us straight answers OR give us the frustrating but necessary non-answers himself. Rose shouldn't always take the brunt, and you shouldn't feel guilty for being frustrated and expressing that frustration.
Like I said before, I can't speak for other members but I know that usually when you vent a frustration you are speaking for me, and I suspect other members as well.
I think if Jon realized that our testiness is frustration and not personal vindictiveness, he wouldn't feel as sensitive about it himself.
Sunday, May 15th, 2016 on Tarein
Sydney, I suspect this MetArtX thing is with us for good. I'm no expert but they seem pretty committed to it. They've crossed the Rubicon, they've burned their bridges, etc. (LOL) It's a thing now, it's their thing, they're going to see it through.
(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.
Saturday, May 14th, 2016 on Tarein
Oh and to clarify in paragraph 3. Yes. I think MetArtX should simply be cancelled and forgotten. If MetArt ever wanted to redeem themselves and show their commitment to art, not money, there'd be no better way to do it.
Rose. You're not going to like this comment very much, but I feel like I need to say something.
I've now watched all the MetArtX material released and I have to say, it's phenomenally mediocre. There's virtually nothing to it. Minimal context, minimal story, and bar the Lakante stuff (which is no different from his TLE work), zero art. It's just... girl, girl plays, end. It's a lazy, uninspired format.
Can we please just consider this whole MetArtX business a terrible, greedy misadventure and get back to making art at SexArt? Bring Locanta back and lets get Lynn, Lightfoot and Erro interested in contributing solo. That sounds like a SIGNIFICANTLY better idea to me.
Also. About this "assumptions" business above. I take my admittance of being an ass back. Ariel's video was definitely shot with intent to be released elsewhere. The accompanying photoset to that video can be found right here on SexArt - Mocha, dated Nov 24, 2012!
You are not comparing apple with apple Sydney... Unlike a website in erotic arts, both films are hit and run business addressing masses... It would be far more difficult to produce one mad Max or The Revenant every week to the satisfaction of comparably much limited market size. As you mentioned above, I agree that both teams could produce their best under SA umbrella to address expectations better.

Hey, we are all on the same team here! And we really appreciate the feedback we get from all of you, because it really does matter to us very much. Your concerns are valid, and only the improvements that I know are coming will be able to prove how seriously we do take it; you may not have had a direct response, but rest assured we continually discuss, reassess, debate and plan accordingly, and the feedback we get from you guys is a key part of that process. It's frustrating that I can't tell you, "this, this and this is happening," because I know it would really reassure you about the direction in which we're heading. Thanks for keeping us on our toes, and rest assured we want to keep hearing it - and facilitating that discussion and exchange of views is part of why I'm here (the other part is for the girls girls girls, of course)!
Yes... the whole point is that it doesn't have to be one or the other, we can have both. It's a question of listening to the artists, listening to the paying members, and adjusting the corporate vision to meet both sets of expectations as best as possible.
I don't have anything else to say at this point that isn't repeating myself. As I said in my original response - you make some good points, we listen, we care. There's nothing else I can share with you right now. I hope most members are happy with what we deliver and have faith that we will always strive to improve.
MetArtX has been launched specifically in response to requests from MetArt members. We're confident that all the sites have a unique and separate identity, something that will be developed even more over time. We have hired new staff and sought out new artists to fulfil the demand for more content. And we're really proud of the way the company is developing. I'm not sure what more I can say really... except that I hope members will enjoy it and see the proof of what we say in what we deliver.
When you're talking about quality, you don't talk about "industry standards." By industry standards, the nursing home I work in SHOULD be delivering quality care to its residents ~ but it isn't, because economics comes first and resident care comes second. Even though nobody will admit it except us CNAs and nurses delivering front line care, it's the truth. We have far too few caretakers per resident, and we have our caretakers being massively underpaid. Even though we're at the industry standard for staffing and ~ almost ~ up to the industry standard for pay, the result is mediocrity with occasional good care, rather than consistently excellent care.
Quality is quality and speaks for itself. You don't find it when productivity/output is the number one objective.
As I said last night, what we have in 2016 on VT and SA is good erotica, even quality erotica, but we do NOT have the excellence we had several years ago. Sydney is right about that.
You know what they say about making assumptions, Sydney? You are incorrect about this. Our directors have been custom shooting specifically for MetArtX for some time now, so we would have content ready for launch. It has nothing to do with SexArt or TLE.
Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 on Tarein
Yes, that's what I am saying... we often shoot two scenes a day, which is MUCH less than pretty much every other company out there. It's the opposite of 'churning out.'
Yep. Quantity driving means that quality takes a back seat. I don't care if we're talking about Locanta or Lupin or any director, when the overriding objective is to provide so much material within so much time, rather than being to provide some material that is EXCELLENT, the results always speak for themselves.
When SA had two excellent filmmaking teams, we had excellence in film. Now that the teams have been separated and each is responsible for all the video output on a site, the storyline has all but disappeared and the excellence has evaporated. What we are left with is merely good erotica ~ which I will take anyday in preference to cookie-cutter mainstream porn, don't get me wrong. But Sydney is absolutely right that SA 2016 simply does not measure up to SA 2014, and I think the culprit is quantity vs. quality.
I'm sorry if it came across as "cookie cutter"... I don't want to say more about our plans partly because it's confidential - there's a reason we don't let our rivals know what we are working on! - and partly because I think it sounds fake to say "we're doing this, we're doing that...". I would rather let our actions - in terms of upcoming changes and improvements - speak for us. We have made massive changes to both TLE and Viv Thomas during the past year in response to feedback from members, so I hope that's enough to reassure members here that we do listen and care about what they say.
Guys.. I don't have the expertise and the depth you are in on these matters... I can only talk based on my impressions and satisfaction... What I am after is; Love, beauty, dignity, innocence and exchange of love... I am not really after obscenity or raw sex, or ridiculation whether it is art or not. Sorry to say and accept that I may be wrong, but I do conceive Team Locanta pretty much in this category. I used to be a member of VT and I dropped it due to frustration. Another words, I didin't and still don't feel like following Team Locanta at VT. I am not denying and overruling their magnificent productions. Yet, when all summed up this where I am.
Having said that, I am pretty content with what Team Lupin cooks in their kitchen once or twice a week... I am not a big fun of G/G movies but I do appreciate beauty and intense womanhood, and enjoy them as well occasionally. ... Solo girls are simply unbelievable...
To sum up, I think I am quite content with SexArt as is. If teams were switched with VT, probably I would drop SA and renew VT to follow Team Lupin.
Thanks for the rapid reply, Sydney. I'm really glad you're still around, it's been so long since we've heard from you and frankly I can't blame you. You'll notice my volume of commentary has drastically fallen off lately, and it's only partly because I've been in school this semester.
I cannot agree more heartily with you about the "quantity vs. quality" problem and it affecting both Team Lupin and Team Locanta. Agreeing with that, I differ with you in that I prefer B/G and so this has been a fairly good year as far as I'm concerned just in terms of quality of B/G scenes here.
I agree with you however that by and large the story has been lost and that really does reduce what would be excellent work to merely good work. I think the burden of having to produce 3 films a day via shooting two per day during a shoot has got to be tremendously wearing and leaves precious little time for story.
Solo work for me has always been problematic. Where I will agree with you is that when it is good it can be quite inspiring. For me that frequently comes down to an inspired performer who is allowed by the director to BE inspired and to perform with whatever inspiration she brings. I think that, more so than partner or group film, solo is almost entirely about what it is that drives the model herself and if she hasn't got an inner fire, nothing that she does is going to be convincing. Therefore, I dismiss almost all solo work before I even watch it. I think I've watched maybe 25% of the solo content on TLE lately ~ I just can't muster the enthusiasm.
So because so much of solo erotica is uninspired, I simply haven't missed it here. I feel bad for you and other enthusiasts however and I do think there should be some room for it here because of your desire for it.
As for the Blacks... they have released two photoset/film projects on TLE in the recent months, I hope you can at very least view them in "pay per view," even if you don't have a subscription... (:
You make some very valuable points here Sydney, and without giving too much away at this point I want to assure you that we are totally committed to quality here at SexArt. There are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline that I really hope will address your concerns, so please keep watching... as always, members' feedback is extremely important in helping to shape the way the site develops.
Sydney, you make some interesting points here.
What I will say about your switching Team Lupin with Team Locanta is that while team Lupin were at VT their work was rather uninspired, IMO, because they had to do so much work, it was another case of quantity trumping quality.
I would far rather bring Team Locanta back to SA and find some other teams to take over VT. I'm still pulling for bringing Jo back, and to be honest, Caravaggio has done some really nice films over there. I think it would be possible to find some other artists to take over VT while bringing SA's A-Teams back home where they belong.
Sydney, MetArt is currently working on a new site called "MetArtX" that will contain solo films with MA models. I believe that is why there haven't been any on SA recently, they've been saving them up for MAX. I could be wrong about this, perhaps Rose will correct me if I'm wrong.
However, I have the feeling if Erro were going to do solo films, they would appear on MAX, not SA. (: I hope this has been helpful. (:
Oh, thanks for clarifying! LOL
I'm glad to hear about your projects "in the works." I'm waiting with bated breath. (: We're all pulling for you, Sydney!
Monday, May 9th, 2016 on Surprise In The Shower
Hi Sydney, thank you for the excellent reference, I really did enjoy the short video on framing.
I believe you are here defending Lupin's use of framing in this scene.
One interesting thing about the scenes that were referenced in the YouTube video is that they were all DYNAMIC. The scene itself was always moving. The scene in this video is static. That is why the vast areas of dead screen first annoyed, and then frustrated me.
It's OK IMO for a director in an erotic scene to conceal in order to reveal ~ as long as there is a gradual and satisfactory payoff, i.e. a reveal. For well over half this scene, there was very little visual payoff, and very little progress toward the visual payoff that there eventually was, hence my mounting annoyance and frustration. Perhaps I simply lack your patience, Sydney. (:
However, thank you again for the link to that excellent youtube video, it was VERY informative. (:
I can't wait to see the fruit of all your learning about cinema, I hope soon! I'd really love to see you collaborating either with Alis or with Andrej! (:
Hi Sydney, I'm sure Jon will want to respond to this personally – and you make some great points here. I just wanted to reassure you that we would NEVER EVER try to persuade or pressure our models into doing something they don't want to do. I think Jon just used the word 'unfortunately' in the sense that we would all love to see Melena do girl-girl, and hope that she will one day, but of course it is her personal choice and we respect that. We love her!
Sunday, February 14th, 2016 on Melena A
Well said, Sparky and Sydney! There's something so special about Tracy, and I think it has a lot to do with the way she really opens herself up, physically and emotionally, both to her partner and the viewer. She's a superstar.
Saturday, February 6th, 2016 on Imagination
You're in the right ballpark, but not quite there, Sydney :-)
The toolbar looks okay to me, so a screenshot for the wizards would be helpful if it's still looking odd to you tomorrow. Sweet dreams :-)
Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 on Vox Episode 3
I also initially interpreted it as the eroticism of language, Sydney – Tracy did an amazing job of conveying that in the first episode, which is why it threw me when I learned of the presence of some added stimulation! The second episode bowled me over, because as you know I have a thing for Spanish girls talking in their native language. And now Agatha, as you say, has brought the sexy-cool. I don't think you will be disappointed by the choice of language (or girl) in the final episode, although I agree French would have been an obvious and very arousing choice!
That was done back in March, Sydney...
It must be time for an update... any excuse to talk to her really, she's an absolute sweetheart :-)
Monday, December 7th, 2015 on Men who like porn respect women more: the facts!
I think it's really easy to over-read things. But sometimes a rose is just a rose, and sometimes a first impression is accurate, even if you feel somewhat conflicted about it.
I'm not saying it is not a good thing for Alis to try his take on ideas he hasn't done yet (the basic concept reminded me more than a little of "Reading Room" and also another movie on VT where the lady is sitting at the breakfast table while another girl is pleasuring her below the table) , nothing could be further from the truth. And perhaps I was a tad harsh in my original reaction in that I did not even acknowledge that this is an attempt to come at an idea in a fresh and original way, and that's my failure.
But it still strikes me as wrong that the twist in this scene should have to be explained to us... I think there could have been a way that Alis could have revealed the twist to us that wouldn't have ruined the concept.
Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 on Vox Episode 1
Sydney, I think your original response was quite right.
The significance of what's actually happening shouldn't have to be explained to us in comments, IMO. Without that piece of information, the first half of the scene doesn't make sense, and SEEMS ~ just like you pointed out ~ a performance and nothing more.
I don't think there's any re-evaluation necessary...
I actually didn't figure that out either, Sydney... I thought Tracy was just getting really turned on by what she was reading! It all makes perfect sense now, right :-)
Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015 on Vox Episode 1
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. :)
nobody here is fighting to be your favourite filmmaker :D
Everyone here is doing his best to delivery his best work. We accept constructive critic, but it has to be constructive. And when it is constructive, we learn from our mistakes.
I am proud of each film we do, because if I wouldn't, nobody will ever see it!
Sunday, November 29th, 2015 on Fountain of Love
Maybe I can answer your question.
- Objects in front of the actors (we focus on) support the depth of field and help the viewer to understand the space where is the scene shoot.
- Through glass shots (as also Rose said) are cool and for other members should be interesting point of view :)
Thank you very much
TOTALLY disagree with you, but to each his or her own! Andrej is on location at present, but I hope he will find time to respond to you.
Maybe because they are cool?! I love the shots through the glass. If you were watching a couple make love on a glass table, wouldn't you look at them through the glass? I know I would! :-)
Keep watching, Sydney... more solos coming very soon :-)
I take your point about the lack of psychological depth here, but I rather enjoyed the simplicity. Although where Michaela's beautiful face is concerned, my critical faculties may be somewhat impaired... :-)
Wednesday, November 25th, 2015 on Time For Me
Thanks for the sweet words Sydney – I know all the team here, and the artists and their production teams, will really appreciate it. And we're looking forward to putting your creative talents to use too :-)

I will answer that for you, Sydney – yes he is, very much so! Alis loves being able to express his wilder (maybe even darker) side on SexArt, and he's not going to give that up! :-)

[for some reason my post was truncated. I'm going to post again, hoping it all comes through. If not I guess I'll post in parts.]
@Sydney: “The harsh reality of the industry is that these girls have an expiration date roughly after they hit 30 years of age. That means our time to shoot these beautiful, amazing and talented women is limited.”
Sydney: I've been pondering this quote for almost a day now, since I read it, because I have a rather strong reaction to it. Perhaps this a topic that belong on the blog instead of here, because its' broader than just this film. But that's not something I can make happen, so I offer my comments.
Unfortunately, your first sentence is too often true. I do wish to contend your second sentence.
To be blunt, some of the most fervent sexual passion I have ever seen portrayed in a video has involved performers who are over that dreaded 30-year old threshold. It might not have the energy of youth, but what is there is depths of passion, fervor, emotional ardor that only comes with the passage of years. I think that women over 30 years of age can generate just as much “steam” as a younger model.
In the early years sexuality certainly is greatly driven by physicality, I remember quite vividly the attractions of my youth. However, as we age the vicissitudes of life add texture and nuance to our sexuality. Yeah, as we age we lose some physicality. But I believe that is more than compensated by the added depth and richness of emotion and experience that we bring to relationship. And I have certainly seen that conveyed with performers in their late 30’s in a way that no 23-yr old could ever touch.
If SexArt were only about physical relationship, then certainly the window to shoot these artists would be limited as you suggest. Certainly that’s true of all of the porn sites out there for whom the performers, male and female alike, are just sex objects. In that world, when the physical elements fade it’s the kiss of death.
But I’m here because I don’t perceive SexArt as part of that world. I think that SexArt’s drive is to go beyond that to depict the deeper and more intimate aspects of sexuality. And that sexuality simply doesn’t end at age 30 or thereabouts.
As I have commented frequently, I have the greatest admiration and respect for our performers who reveal themselves intimately to the camera. One of my dreams is that some of our performers will continue to be involved with SexArt (or similar) as they progress through life and will leave us an oeuvre that tracks with their lives.
Looking back I would expect to see some times where tenderness is front and center, likely coinciding with things going on in the performer’s life. Other times might be tempestuous. Others melancholy. Or celebratory. And each shows sexuality in its own fashion.
It would be thrilling to me if our talented directorial and production were able to take something like that on as a vision, and weave the generation of such an oeuvre into their corpus d’arte.

I believe that many performers in the industry, of both genders, show a different sexuality as they cross that threshold. And that is

And till when are your exams. Can you imagine better relax than to be on a production right after such a hard work? :)
I am sure there is a chance to make one free week :) what are you doing that you have no time for anything?
What ever it is - STOP - and create some time for yourself which you can use with us on production, shooting your very own movies.
You are master of your life. :)
thank you for your comment, it has been a while :)
I have few points to your proposals. You have to understand, that each director has his own specific way "signature" of his point of view. Doesn't matter if its Andrej, Alis, Paul or Tarantino, Michael Bay, Baz Luhrmann..
No matter how many movies you see from them, they will always have same system of shoot/look in many ways.
For me sounds quite realistic that if there are some fashion models on work, they stay on a hotel for the time of shoot.. I don't see anything unreal on a hotel room in this case.
In real life I am VERY sure that lesbian girls are in contact with many men around them.. On Earth doesn't live only girls, so I would say that to see a man in a GG scene is quite realistic too. Of course not if the whole scene is in girls house, or room or any place where is no chance to meet a man in real live.
How do you think that we can look at our beautiful girl which you are mentioned in your comment? Once, someone gave them chance when they were new and book them for shoot :) and this step give us and you chance to be able to adore them. We always shoot new girls and we shoot them same as we shoot our "old" favorite star girls. My production was only from your list shooting 7 girls this year and always in more than one scene. Anyway, if we wouldn't give a chance this year for example Lady Dee who is now on 16th place in TOP models we wouldn't have new, great, lovely girl :) Please, give chance to new models, one day they can become girls for who you will pray, that you can see them again. I am sure they deserve it :)
ANYWAY lets forgive all this, I have a big offer for you. Me and my team make a decision, that we would be really happy if you join us on our production. I am sure you will be very happy to have chance to shoot for example Tracy, Kiara, Lady Dee, Anna Rose, Taylor Sands, Amirah Adara and many more girls who are joining us on our next production on Lanzarote. It would be great for us to meet you, talk about our work and see your style and signature in movies which you will shoot. Everything what you have to do is to jump on a plane and come, you are very welcome :) Ask Rose for my personal email and lets fix the details. I am sure it is a big chance for you and for us it would be great to finally meet you. Maybe you will understand how we work and maybe we can learn from you what to improve.
Please, be sure that this is not a joke! We would be really happy to have you on our production, so lets make a deal. And I am sure that sexart members will be super happy to see your work too :)
Let me know what do you think.
Thank you very much, have a great day..
