I second this. And this seems a good place to add a related thing I have been thinking about.
What I would love to see more of in gg scenes is the two women, holding and embracing each other in full frontal contact, cuddling and rubbing bodies, and not feeling hurried to move along.
So here's a template for part of a session. Our two ladies, wearing only tasteful semi-sheer panties, move into a full frontal contact arrangement, Just enjoying and savoring one another in extended, real foreplay. In my experience (b/g) those times of full frontal contact and cuddling build union with my partner. I imagine it would be the same g/g, and I would love to see that unfolding with the models as well.
During this time the action starts building, with the cuddling and snuggling increasing in vigor while still continuing full contact. Perhaps a thigh slips in between the other person's legs. Or they are side to side, and one rolls onto her back and pulls the other along on top of her into missionary, And then, still in full frontal contact, the vigor increases until they are writhing, one on top of the other. After that they would move naturally into more direct climaxing activities.
Ideally this would feature a lot of full body and longer continuous shots, where we can see the passions and emotions building continuously as the performers are also engaging with each other.
And perhaps shoot the scene on a bed with darkly colored satin sheets to contrast with skin tone and hair of the models, with the sheets filling most of the frame. So what we see are two objects of feminine beauty, set against the sheets, moving together to create artistic and authentic love-making.
Get the right women together, who are into the concept with each other, and I think it could be wonderful. Let the whole session develop naturally and honestly. If it takes more than a 25 minute movie to do it authentically, so be it.

IIRC - Uma had to step away from the industry for awhile because of problems with her back (which isn't necessarily surprising given the "vigor" in much of her previous work).
Rose - do you know how she's doing in the regard? And if you have the opportunity could you convey to her that she has fans who have been wishing and hoping the best for her?

The "squirt" tag is your friend, Rose. Just do a search.
IIRC - there is a Bo Llanberis shoot with Malena Morgan, Elle Alexandra, and Rilee Marks in which Malena really "spreads the news", so to speak.
Tuesday, August 30th, 2016 on Party Boat Part 2
My reaction is that the attentions isn't necessarily on one individual, but it's hard to make it work as as an "equal" threesome. I have two movies in mind. The first is G/B/B threesome, but where the female is in control and the guys are simply there to service her. Very erotic.
The second is a G/G/B threesome, where the G/G partners had an established history and relationship together. When the injection of the male, he was essentially a plaything added to their relationship. The movie focus wasn't on how his needs got met, but rather on how he was an added element to the women's relationship. He got taken care of in the end, but on their terms and only after they had extracted from him what they wanted.
So, in any sexual situation, the power and control dynamics are always lurking, overtly or covertly. When added participants are included, it becomes even more important to set the power parameters, and then carry those parameters through into the movie.
Monday, August 22nd, 2016 on Party Boat Part 1
Playing some catchup here.
First comment: Cristal is smoking hot in this episode, as well as in previous episodes. Overall, Cristal is carries this whole series, from her portrayals of being the subjugatee to this episode with Tyler. If there is a way to extend to her our congratulations on her tour de force in this series please do so.
Second comment: This is by far the best episodic series done by Team Lupin/APF. This series shows how far they have come in their film-making. But there is more that can be done.
I offered some comments is some previous episodes. My larger take with those is that the scripts could do with some added outside critical input - to hone and sharpen key scenes for greater effect.
Also, I felt the series was short by at least two segments. First is that I thought that there needed to be some more buildup in the relationship between Tyler and Cristin, and how it is influencing the household. Presumably, in Episodes 1 and 4 Anna is acting out on Cristal because she suspects or knows of the relationship between Cristal and Tyler. But there's no portrayal of that backdrop - how does Anna know or suspect? We see in this episode that she seems to know, but how she knows isn't here.
So at least two episodes - how do Tyler and Cristal connect? and how does Anna find out? I don't think that these need to be presented linearly - we can know that Anna is abusing Cristal in the early episodes without knowing that backdrop. But some fill to show us how Anna knows would help.
In addition, I think that the dramatic arc would have been more intense if there we had been shown a pre-existing relationship between Anna and Cristal. Perhaps it's one-sided - Anna merely taking advantage of a meek Cristal, with no involvement by Tyler. Maybe there is some mutuality on Cristal's part.
But then Tyler starts to get involved with Cristal. And that causes Anna to start acting out- with escalating abuse of Cristal, in counterpart with Anna perceiving losing control of her situation with both Tyler and Cristal. As she perceives her situation with Tyler deteriorates, she tries to compensate by asserting increasing control of Cristal.
But Cristal comes out on top, in the end. And then there is an episode where the tables are turned. Anna tries to abuse Cristal, but this time Cristal refuses and instead let's Anna know that she now has power equal to Anna's. And the two ladies need so sort that out.
So, good concept, but something that could be greatly enhanced with some added, outside review and constructive criticism.
Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 on Bittersweet Tale Part 5
FWIW - this is not a comment that was posted by me. I believe this comment was actually posted by Rose, but a bug in the programming has somehow linked this comment to me. This isn't the only time this has occurred.
Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 on Funny Art
Well,- this thread took a turn that I didn't expect.
I was simply reacting to the comment that " …she doesn't seem at all like a "porn actress". Grammatically, that means that actually is a "porn actress", she just doesn't "seem like" one in this flick. And that gave me a hitch because one of the distinctions that I hope to believe in at Sex Art is that the amount of porn acting is much less.
Ideally, such that it would only be necessary to comment when such acting is apparent, rather than noting when it isn't apparent.
Friday, August 5th, 2016 on Where Do We Go
Rose - I've made similar comments before, so I know I'm repeating myself but I don't care.
I have concerns with the label “porn actress”. “Porn actress” to me conjures tiresome notions of sites such as #ivid where women are selling their bodies to satisfy varying degrees of male perversion. The chief attraction to me of a site such as SexArt is solos, couples, or more, where the people in the flick are simply doing what comes naturally.
We've had threads before about what “label” to put on the people who appear in SexArt productions. I have an aversion to calling them “actors”, because acting implies that what we are seeing is just an act. I don’t want to see people acting love-making. I want to see them actually connecting, physically and emotionally.
You've indicated before that many of the people in SexArt movies (female particularly?) prefer to be called “models”. If that’s the label they prefer I suppose I should settle with that. But to me “model” falls short, because to me “model” still conveys artifice; models know how to be beautiful for the camera, even if they are somewhere else in mind.
I've generally defaulted to calling them “performers”, but that still falls a bit short in my mind, because I've felt that in the best of SexArt we aren't merely seeing a performance.
But quoting from above, to say that “she doesn't seem at all like a ‘porn actress’ implies to me that there are others at the site who are “porn actresses”. To be blunt, my expectation is that if there is a performer here who truly is a “porn actress” (Whitney Westgate or Blue Angel, e.g.), when they appear at SexArt they are not only allowed to, but are expected to, “do what comes naturally” instead of pandering.
That doesn’t mean that there is an absence of “performance”. There is background and context that the performers need to fill in. But when the action “proceeds”, shall we say, my favorites evince to me that they aren’t just putting on a show for our delight, but they are willingly and enjoyably sharing with us a piece of who they are. And that distinguishes them from “actors”, even though I don’t have a word in English to describe that that is.
So I would hope that “doing what comes naturally” is the norm, not the exception. And that when there is a performer who isn't “doing what comes naturally”, that is what would generate discussion rather than needing to cite when a performer actually is “doing what comes naturally”.

Saartje - I fully appreciate and support your perspective and actions saartje, especially as regards simply not voting on b/g flicks simply because they are not to your preferences.
The ratings suggest that many other members are, sadly, not as circumspect. I tip my hat to you for your sensibilities.

And this is why I would like to see Bo Llanberris again involved here. A different vision.
Not to say that I don't like what team Ariel/Andre is doing. If I were scripting, their sensibilities align more with mine than Bo's or Alis's. But it's still a pleasure to see something that stops me and makes me think, "That was really striking, and I would never have thought of that.!"

Meggie has such a beautiful. Would have loved to have Samantha make take more advantage of that during foreplay. Running her fingers through the hair, tugging on them gently, grabbing and sucking. Filling them with Meggie's juices, then rubbing her cheeks and her nose through the wetness. So much missed opportunity to move from the wondrous to the sublime.
Monday, July 11th, 2016 on Firework
And; a counterpoint to our discussion in "Daybreak". Sometimes you don't need to use vocal cords to communicate. That being said, it would have been loverly if that had exchanged some deeply affectionate words, post-coitus. And a devilish look from Kiara during the oral would not all have been out of place. But now I'm just reinforcing Ms. Larson's point.
As we have seen often, B/G films are grossly underranked by the raters. I think a good rule of thumb would be to add one point to all ratings of B/G films.

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016 on Bittersweet Tale Part 4
Totally. Even better than episode 1. Cristal is showing some decent acting range in this set. Much as Iwia did in The Contract.
I want to preface my comments first by emphasizing how much I am enjoying this series. Comparing “Bittersweet” with “The Game” and “Snow Fun” illustrates how far team Ariel/Lupin have progressed in their film making. I love series types of films because of the broader palette afforded the creators, and the Bittersweet series stands with best efforts in erotic film-making that I have seen.
With that being said, I feel as if I’m in the situation of Ms. Larson, my 11th grade English teacher, who commented to us that it was easier for her to grade an essay that scored 95% instead of an essay that scored 70%. She observed that when an effort is that close to excellence, it was easier for her to note the minor details where it fell short than it was for her to inform as to where the whole effort had gone astray. (Parenthetically, this was an important “life lesson”, as I learned that when people critiqued my efforts in detail, that meant I was often closer to the mark than in situations in which I received little to no feedback.)
That’s where I feel I am in offering observations about Bittersweet. I offered no comments on The Game, because … where do I start? With Bittersweet, it’s so much to give feedback on the little distortions because when the effort is so exemplary, the minor issues are much more prominent that in situations where there are major structural flaws.
With that out of the way, here is my only nit to pick, which is totally based on the story as a I see it unfolding thus far. My nit is that in this episode Anna should have been significantly more abusive of Cristal than she was in episode 1. In my perception, Anna was a bit more dominant than in episode, but not by much. As I see the story, Anna’s frustration should be building, being expressed in ever-increasing abuse and domination of the staff. In this episode Dolly was spot-on in telling Anna to fuck off, but that should have translated into Anna taking out more of her frustrations on Cristal, and trying to get away with more liberties with Cristal than she did in episode 1.
Frankly, I thought this episode could have used some more explicit and complete domination of Cristal as compared with episode 1. As I mentioned in the thread on episode 1, the scene where Anna forcibly exposes Cristal’s vulva (to herself in particular and to camera as voyeur) is very degrading of Cristal So if this episode is going to explore the further degradation of Cristal, it needs something further. In that regard this episode could perhaps have deployed some mild bondage, such as binding Cristal’s hands with her panties. And, if the story proceeds along these lines, it could lead to Anna binding and blindfolding Cristal entirely, while Anna fully exploits Cristal for Anna’s own desires and purposes. And then, suppose if Tyler happened to walk in on their meeting. Or suppose that Tyler were doing such to Cristal, and Anna walked on them to find that Tyler and Cristal were doing what Anna had fantasized? The opportunities are, shall we say, delicious???
BTW – the differences in power among the parties are nicely supported in an earlier episode showing Dolly and Max leaving the house at the end of the day – showing their independence. Meanwhile, Cristal appears to be stuck in residence at the house, in full dependence on Anna and Tyler. Also, this greater independence of Dolly makes it easier in this episode for Dolly to tell Anna to fuck off and for Max to refuse her advances poolside.
Rose, thanks for that added background.
However, that being said, I suggest a different story arc might have worked better for Kiara, viz., a plot element that incorporates Delphine guiding Kiara. That is a rather common plot element, which was deployed marvelously with Agata in My First. If she's new and is needing guidance why not let that be part of the story, instead of asking her to assume a role that she's not ready to assume easily?
Sunday, July 3rd, 2016 on Daybreak
Rose, I appreciate the response. But I'm not addressing scripted dialogue. To me this is simply being "natural".
If the setting is such that the performers can't/don't act naturally, then the scene becomes performance. And that's what I perceive when the performers don't act naturally - what I"m seeing is simply a performance, a simulation.
Saturday, July 2nd, 2016 on Daybreak
I really wanted to like this, but it left me feeling flat.
First. The flick is supposed to twenty minutes long, but somehow the clock on the wall doesn't advance. If there is a clock, at least make it keep pace with the presumed story arc.
Second, and I have oft mentioned this, how can two people, who are presumably in a deeply involved relationship, go through this whole scenario without uttering a single word to each other. What we do get is a fair amount of moaning, commencing about five minutes in. But moaning in now way substitutes for two people who actually engage with each other.
I don't understand the issue involving verbal communication. Language differences are not relevant. I don't need to know the words to sense the communication between partners. More importantly, when partners don't communicate verbally as they normally would, that makes the whole scene seem artificial.
Which is how this came across to me, largely due to inordinate amounts of moaning and the lack of verbal communication. In erotic movies moaning is easy to do and easily faked. Real communication is harder - and that is why it is more meaningful when it occurs naturally and honestly.
Please, less moaning and more actual interaction among the performers.

Love Ariel's bush. She looks more like what a woman naturally looks like.
Saturday, June 25th, 2016 on Cloud
Hi, Bo. I wanted to respond to this earlier, but I was out out of town.
To start, I want to say that wooden dialog messes up the whole experience. At the same time, seeing a movie where there isn't any connection between the performers also messes up the experience for me.
From my perspective .... here at SexArt, and particularly with much of the work being done by Team Lupin and in the best of your work, the performers are required to bring more to the performance than just sex. They are being asked to carry at least some semblance of a story line.
What I'm looking for is that when that story line also demands some dialog, the performers need to be able to provide some dialog to go along with the acting. If they are unable to do so, then perhaps they shouldn't be cast and the role should go to performers who are more suited to the production requirements. Based on information that has been posted elsewhere here at SexArt, SexArt model fees are very attractive in the industry. So if performers who can bring more than sex to a scenes get more than their fair share of good paying gigs, that's should be a good thing.
As a corollary, when people are truly engaged in sex they talk to each other., giving clues and guidance, inquiring what the other person is looking for, offering expressions of affection and endearment. When those are lacking my perception of the performance suffers.
So even if the performer can't carry a line in a story, can't they at least act natural during a sex scene? And if they can't act natural during a sex scene, is it truly a sex scene ?

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
Elle as grease monkey sounds like a fine starting concept for a shoot.
Does this mean that you will once again be contributing at SexArt? As much as I have appreciated how the site has evolved, it would still be wonderful to see you contributing again - ant to see you sharpening team Lupin while they add contribute to your visions at the same time.
Sunday, May 29th, 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.
In the comments area for Horizont II I opined about how wonderful it would be to have Amarna Miller and Elle Alexandra doing a shoot together.
Per Amarna, "I would kill someone to shoot with Elle Alexandra! Just saying :P"
How awesome would that be!!
How could two people go through this whole scenario without saying even a single word to each other?? After watching this the complete lack of verbal connection left me with a void.

I don't know how this comment wound up with this video. I was most definitely not commenting on this video. as I haven't even viewed it yet.
Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 on Out Of Plans
Perhaps belaboring the obvious, but this segment is clearly about Anna asserting her control. That is conveyed clearly. But the concept would be even more impactful if it included attempts by the domestic staff to assert control, and having those attempts thwarted.
I commented above about Cristal. Now I want to switch to Dolly. Though she has only a minor role in this segment, I think there were missed opportunities to advance the story with her role.
For example, let's say that Dolly tried to get creative with the eggs. Maybe she adds some wonderful additional ingredients, such as sun-dried tomatoes or capers, perhaps. Anna tastes the eggs and berates Dolly because they weren't what she expected. Anna then upends the plate with the eggs onto the table in front of Dolly and leaves the table, with visible ire. Ire still evident, she then encounters Anna in the bedroom. IMHO, more effective than Anna just leaving her food uneaten, as happened in the video, and the encountering Cristal in the bedroom. Link the two items, working up the theme of Anna's consideration of her staff as mere chattel.
Again, this in the spirit of encouraging the team to think through in preproduction how they can amplify the scene.
Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 on Bittersweet Tale Part 1
LOL Rose. I appreciate the thought, but I'm really not a domination person. I can enjoy it, but I'm really more of a lover. We had some conversation on the Sexway thread, which I haven't forgotten and am still pondering. I've been drafting some ideas, which I will pass on when I think I'm ready. But my sentiments much more intertwine with relationship and intimacy among partners, built on sharing and not naked power and subjugation.
As for my comments above, those aren't editorial as much as they are intended to encourage our directors to think through things carefully, looking for details that will advance the arc. I fully realize that it's easy to come in with post facto critique. My goal is not to criticize, but to give a perspective to the production team to help them critique their own work.
I'm not a film technician, so I don't offer the commentary on those aspects. I just comment where I see opportunities on the story.
Meh. This came across to me as more about sexual gymnastics than abut actual sex.
Loved this!!!! What a fine start to a series; if future episodes match this level it will be finest series offering yet.
Just a few little quibbles that I mention, where I think opportunities to enhance the theme of the movie were missed.
Beginning about 6:12, after Cristal is on the bed and she moves her hands to her body, Cristal should cover her nipples with her hands and arms, with the camera showing Cristal's attempts to maintain minimal control. Anna should then peel Cristal's hands away so that Cristal is fully exposed (and vulnerable) to Anna (and the camera). At 6:20 the camera showing Cristal's fully exposed and exploited vulva conveys the situation nicely. But I think the moment, and the impact, could have been enhanced by allowing her a minor attempt at avoiding full exposure, and then having even that small attempt thwarted.
Then about 7:20, when Anna reverses positions on the bed, Anna has hold of Cristal's left arm. But at 7:23 Anna lets go of Cristal's arm, after which she commands Cristal to come. To me, this scene would have worked better if Anna had never released Cristal's arm, thereby asserting her full control. Cristal would then try to pull away, again making an attempt at some degree of control, but Anna tightens her grip on Cristal's arm, and then beckons Cristal to come. Cristal hesitates and Anna becomes more demonstrative and forceful about bringing Cristal in where she wants Cristal to be. Maybe even add a spank to Cristal for resisting.
Finally, just after the 20:00 point, when Cristal is gathering her clothes, I think it would have been interesting to have Anna take some currency from the nightstand drawer and throw the money on the floor where Cristal is collecting her clothes, as a tip and with same disdainful sneer as she used at the the breakfast table. Whether Cristal leaves the money on the floor behind (thus asserting a degree of dignity), or takes the money along with her clothes (acquiescing to total humiliation) , would depend on the subsequent story arc. And Anna would then need to followup accordingly. If Anna sees Cristal take the money, she should show her smugness as that act reinforces her control and domination of Cristal. But if Cristal leaves the money, then Anna's expression should evince Anna's realization that her control isn't as total as she would like it to be.

Saturday, May 14th, 2016 on Tarein
I agree, Rose. What really makes this movie work for me is that Angella Christin is in control the entire time; the flick is her flick.
Based on what has been posted at other times, I assume that also means that the female model controls whether the climax is internal or external Although I much more appreciate the internal finish, I have reached a point where I can appreciate the external conclusion where it is a manifestation of control by the woman. It is her body, and she decides. And there is an erotic component in that.
This greatly differs from so much porn, done in the male viewpoint, in which women are ejaculated on because they are simply objects who are supposed to enjoy and lavish the cum that males have so generously bestowed upon them. This flick is totally the opposite of those.

Sunday, May 8th, 2016 on Pianist
Looked for your blog post and didn't find it. What date was it posted?
I have to say that this movie came across very flat to me. There certainly were positive elements, most of which have been discussed in other comments. below. The only thing I would add is that for me bgg and bbg scenes only work when the woman/women are clearly in control of the action. That was the case here, and that zinged with me.
The bigger issue for me, though, is that I left the movie with no feeling of why I should care about any of the performers. They all came across to me as vacuous and self-absorbed.
In my mind, this might have worked better as a series. In a series, there would be opportunities to explore the characters more. For example, the start of the series could focus on Subil and Jay, establishing a caring and deep relationship between them, something that many of us can relate to or aspire to, and thus we connect with them and start to care about them as a couple.
The next episode would introduce Taylor, and the relationship between her and Jay. We would see the connection between them, and then be confronted with Jay’s problem of being involved with two women (cue the Isaac Hayes soundtrack at this point), with his heart preventing him from making a decision. And this indecision ultimately reverberates among the three principals.
Next, we would see Taylor’s conflicts about being involved with Jay, a married man. That could be established in an episode with Taylor and a boy/girlfriend, in a relationship that parallels that with Jay – being involved with a someone who is almost inalterably committed to someone else, establishing an affair is largely a matter of convenience for one of the parties. This leads to Taylor pondering which way she should go, and beginning to realize that both of the relationships are ultimately going to lead to breakups and pain.That sets the stage for an episode in which Subil discovers the relationship. In this episode we would see the progression of her emotions. Is this a surprise and she is feeling betrayed? Does she have similar secrets in her past that help her understand? How does she formulate the plant that she implements in the dinner party? This is a good opportunity to bring in someone who is a confidant – perhaps a close girlfriend or a former boyfriend with whom she has remained on good terms. I like the boyfriend setup, with Subil asking him for insight on what might cause Jay to have done what he has done. That conversation, of course, leads to them sharing intimate thoughts and emotions and causing a rekindling of what happened before – or if it is the girlfriend a giving in to an attraction that has been covert but now becomes overt. And in the process, Subil realizes how Jay can be torn between two women. This leads to the formulation of her plan, which is what we see in the actual flick.
In denouement, Taylor comes to the realization that both relationships ultimately lead to dead ends. And, in a reversal of everything preceding, Taylor decides to strike out on her own, taking her fate into her hands. The series ends with Taylor Subil and Jay to deal with their relationship issues themselves, without her, while she heads to the door, catching a cab to an airport/train station, where she will set up a new life. This ending would echo the ending of the second “Writer” series. It might also create the setting for two more series as we see Taylor moving on in her new life, while Subil and Jay come to terms with their relationship.

Doing some "catch up" lately, and I really want to give a thumbs up to your comment on performers who have natural beauty.
Yesterday I was viewing a video of a model here, and I saw, dare I say, STRETCH MARKS. But it really just made her all that much more beautiful.
One of my favorite performers is Kayla Leon. She's only done two movies here; I've seen her on some other sites. She isn't "perfect" physically, but she exudes sexuality, and she draws so much more out of her partners than they normally exhibit.

Enjoyed this film very much. I agree with Rose's comments about Shelly. She may be new to SexArt, but she is clearly not a rookie. I would love to see Shelly in a b/g scene with a partner whom she feels totally comfortable and is able to let herself go.
Regarding Shelly's age, there are a number of performers I've seen who didn't start doing “camera work” until they were in their late 20s or early 30s. And they have done some marvelous work. When things click these performers convey supremely their full comfort and confidence in their sexuality even though they don't fit the “nubile” definition. They know what they want and they know how to get what they want from their partner.
Oftentimes they convey a passion, verging on hunger, that seldom is conveyed by younger performers. That's not to say that the younger performers can’t get amped up themselves and lose themselves to bliss. It's just that with some of these older performers the fires seem to be stoked from deeper levels within themselves. Making analogy to a volcano, it's as there’s a sexual magma chamber that with age, has deepened and ripened, and when it emerges it comes with deeper and more sustained force that is seldom if ever manifest in younger performers.
I've commented before about Erika's gorgeous black long hair. I thought it was cute when Shelly grabbed Erika's braid and used it to help hold Erika in position.
I have two nits to pick with this film.
As with so many films there is no dialogue. How is that they switch positions with such synchrony, but with no guidance or comment from one to the other? Mon Dieu! It's almost as if the transitions were planned out in advance. Even though that’s obviously the case, let our performers communicate with each other in the process. And when a performer is happy with what has just happened, shouldn't the person make eye contact with their partner, and smile or giggle, and say something nice to their partner. IMHO, the movies would have more impact - would convey loverly connections - if the performers did that simple natural thing.
My other nit is the intro. What does riding the Segways have to do with the rest of the flick? The film could equally started with them casting ballots in an election, having dinner with Andre and Ariel, or straightening car frames together in a collision repair shop.
The Segways could have been brought into the story in several ways. One that occurs to me is that the riding is a gift from one of them to other. We seem them riding. They return the units, one of the ladies pays, and the other says thank you and snuggles into the other one as they leave the rental store. Maybe there’s even some dialog between them, where they talk about enjoying the ride, and what their later plans are. Something like that would connect the Segways to the rest of the story.

I also agree about Game at the Moment. And I could certainly have gone for a more voyeuristic premise, in which the featured performers get carried away in the moment and become oblivious to the others around them. The Sexy Game segment in the Snow Fun series has some of that. And that series ends in a nice group orgy scene.

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016 on Grey skies, pretty new girls: location report day one
Coming back to this movie again after a couple of months, and on this viewing I'm now feeling somewhat disappointed. Ultimately, I felt this movie was mostly about Sam being taken care of by Vanessa. The reverse scenes, with Vanessa on the receiving end, seemed stilted to me. Sam, however, appeared to be enjoying herself, and as Sam got into things, she pulled Vanessa along with her, so that Vanessa seemed to warm up more as the movie went on, and starting to take delight in taking care of Sam. That was evident in the ending - see comments downthread - but L came way feeling less than satisfied.
But as I was watching the movie and the conclusion, I was pondering. It seemed to me that there was more possibility in the movie than what cane out in the movie, particularly regarding Vanessa. I just never got the sense that she was all that comfortable in the setting.
And that led me thing about what the movie might have been if the two ladies had laid out the storyboard they wanted, instead of plugging themselves into the producers story line. Let it start out the same way. I think the intro is wonderfully domestic, with Sam in the tub attending to hygiene while Vanessa is at the ironing board in the living room. How domestic and natural is that? Then Vanessa comes to the bathroom door and snoops on Sam. To that point we're following the movie.
But then from that point, where would the ladies take it themselves if it were their story? I can't imagine the story following the same path.

The distracting element for me is that the camera starts to become part of the film. In other films the lens is detached from the action, dispassionate and recording. Not so with POV, where the camera, though unseen, becomes part of the film.

And I do note that since posting my comment about the rating on Room of Secrets #3, the rating has steadily been climbing. I hope that is because after reading comments some members are motivated to rate who otherwise wouldn't have bothered (much like me).
Thursday, March 10th, 2016 on Wall
Maybe you can say that about this video. Consistent with that notion the Deus Sex Machina contribution from the Blacks is one of the lowest rated movies.
But that doesn't explain the ratings for Room of Secrets. IMHO an apt descriptive phrase for that could easily be "beautiful people beautifully fucking".
Certainly each to his, her (or their) own. But it makes me thing that there is skew between those who comment and those who rate.
Rose - on further thought, the mystery to me is how this flick and Room of Secrets #3 were so lowly rated by the membership here that casts votes. Both of those flicks seemed to me to represent the near epitome of what this site is about. And when movies such as that appear and generate vote tallies as low as these movies have, I wonder what it is that attracts those voters to this site.
There just seems to me to be disconnect here.
Rose - that's pretty much my point.
I don't rate often, not just here but in all of the other areas where people want me to fill out a survey. For me, on a 10 point scale, 8 is an outstanding score , 9 is awesome, and 10 is absolutely elite. But since other people don't grade that way, if I apply my scores I actually drag down the scores of moves that are being overrated.
So I simply abstain from that nonsense. With the exception that when the rare flick comes along that I would truly give a 10, I give it that rating. In the time I've been here I think I've voted three times; with the most recent being part 3 of Room of Secrets. I don't vote often, but when I do vote do it for impact.
More member rating nonsense. As of this posting, rated 7.8? Really???
Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 on Wall
Thanks for your comments, Kiara.
I came back to this flick for a second viewing, because the first view left me reeling a bit, and I wanted to get some perspective. Then, seeing your comment above, I decided to post a reply to you rather than create a new post. I particularly responded toyour comment: "To be completely honest here I felt self-confident for the whole time, almost like Matt and me were 2 in 1 having sex with Vanessa." I'll respond to that first, then get on to a couple of other items.
That quite expresses precisely one of the thoughts I had towards the end of the encounter, when Matt is thrusting into Vanessa as she is laying on her back and you are snuggling against Matt from the back. It was totally as if the two you were banging Vanessa together, as one body. It was as if you and Matt had become one, servicing Vanessa together. Totally loved it, and I don't think I have ever seen that accomplished before in G/B/G threesome. Awesome.
Thus I was actually disappointed when you and Matt separated a bit and he reached a hand back to stimulate you manually. I would have much preferred instead that you progressively wrap yourself more and more thoroughly and completely around Matt from the back as he pumps Vanessa and she moves towards climax. Culminating in the end with you totally enveloping yourself around Matt as if the two of your one body, as Vanessa climaxes.
(Parenthetically, my ideal would have been for you and Matt to be totally enveloped as he climaxes inside Vanessa, so that it would have been as if the two of you were doing it together. But I presume that it was Vanessa's choice to not have an internal ejaculation. And I grant her total freedom and acceptance of her choice. And if she chooses to have Matt ejaculate externally, then the next best is for you and Matt to reach your full union at the same time that Vanessa has her climax.)
That being said, here a fiew other comments about the video.
There are a number of difficulties and challenges involved with producing quality threesome videos. One of the most critical is chemistry and relationship among the performers. In a two-way, there is only one interpersonal dynamic. With a three-way there are four - each of the three individual two-ways, as well as the combined dynamic of the threesome. If the performers are not comfortable or don't related in all of the combinations, the production will inevitably suffer.
In this flick it totally worked. The chemistry between you and Matt is obvious and known. (By the way, that knowledge made it so easy to see you and Matt uniting as one to take care of Vanessa as I described above.) But there was also obvious ease between you and Vanessa. Of course Matt pretty easily connects with almost any daughter of Eve (though he seems to have something special with you). And then the three of you seemed to work pretty closely together.
While was having the prolonged cowboy, you could see her starting to sweat, her back glistening and her hair starting to mat against her body. I loved it; that seemed so perfect and logical. But then all of you moved into the next sequence suddenly that sweat was gone and the hair wasn't matted any longer. There is a discontinuity there.
Finally, there's the segment where the three of you were in the train with you in the middle. You're trying to do oral on Vanessa, while Matt is thrusting from beyond, But, as your excitement rises, you keep losing your focus on taking care of Vanessa. That strikes me as totally believable; in fact one problem with traditional three-some person is that they show a woman vigorously climaxing while she carries through vigourously on some other sexual activity. That has always seemed contrived.
So if was nice to that as you crescendoed you couldn't focus on Vanessa.

If you ever needed any proof that the member supplied numerical rankings are meaningless, as of the time of this post this movie is rated 7.5. Placing it as the 11th lowest rated film here.
Sunday, March 6th, 2016 on Room Of Secrets Part 3
Matt and Kiara just keep on getting better and better. Loved the giggling and smiling at the end.
It is such a joy to see a couple that seems so comfortable with each other. Whenever I see a Matt and Kaira flick always hark back to the Mariette Hartley/James Garner Polaroid commercials of the 1970s and 1980s. They have that kind of chemistry. The only think lacking is the banter, which is something that SexArt sorely lacks.
Frankly, I wouldn't mind at all if Kiara and Matt decided to devote themselves to each other. Provided they continue to share their devotion with us.
Ariel - if you want to create a followup series, here are some thoughts.
Do a series that focuses on different aspects of a relationship between a couple. I think It will work best if the couple actually has real affections for each other, so they can enter into the riles more effectively and convincingly.
The film could be a multipart series where each segment triggers off of something,. As the series progresses, we see the couple interacting more deeply and intimately. so the multi-part isn't just a set of stand-alone vignettes, but shows the relationship between the couple evolving and deepening. A love story, if you will, but with bumps along the way and the couple working through the bumps to arrive at an even deeper and more powerful relationship. Sending a message that many bumps can be traversed and that those are the situations that develop and deepen in relationships.
For example, In the context of a series, the initial episodes might depict some questioning of the partners about the relationship. The middle episodes could show them dealing with the issues, with the final episodes showing them moving into a deeper relationship. In the process the erotica moves from strictly physical to deeper and more intimate levels.
Sunday, March 6th, 2016 on What You Want
Oh, Ariel. My hear is aflutter, methinks.
I am so pleased that you read my comments and responded. so positively. I totally intended them to be constructive, to consider in future films. I am so glad that you perceived them that way.
I guess I get to be the contrary voice here.
Revenge and power is the strong subcontext in this movie. Linda feels betrayed when she sees the texting on the phone. And she wonderfully takes matters into her own hands. She enlists Timea to help in her scheme. I think that it is totally wonderful to see Linda acting positively and forcefully, but I think that theme is not sustained as it could be.
The strongest element of power that Linda possesses is that Kristof doesn't know who the other woman is. When the blindfold is removed that power is ceded. In my opinion the movie would have had much more impact had Timea left with Kristof still blindfolded, not knowing who the other woman was, Linda possessing that knowledge, while Kristof doesn't, is a significant power dynamic.
If Linda wanted to really send a message, she and Timea should have left Kristof short of climax. Then they should have taken each other to deep orgasm, near Kristof so he could hear their passion, but be utterly unable to do anything but listen, denied of his own orgasm while his partner is getting it on next to him with some unknown female.
After they are done, Timea dresses and exits while Krisof is still blindfolded. Linda goes to the kitchen and brings Kristof some favorite treat of his (a pastry and coffee perhaps), removes the blindfold and restraints, and ever so sweetly gives him the treat and caresses him affectionately without mentioning a word of what just transpired.
To my mind something such as that would have greatly sustained and magnified Linda's power and control in the movie.
Since this is going in a somewhat personal direction,
The ending echoed with me. In my youth, there were three women in succession whom I cared for deeply, and with whom the feelings seemed reciprocal. One time we were making wedding plans. In the other two cases it seemed we were clearly heading that direction, with the women talking with me about what a life together might be like, In each case the women rather suddenly ended the relationships, without any danger signals that I discerned. In each case they assured me that I was a wonderful person, but they just needed to move on. If it happens once you write it off. When it happens three times, you need to ask yourself, whether the problem is you.
So that ending did hit me. As Blackwing indicated the non-fairy tale ending is probably more realistic even though it is more disappointing.
Saturday, March 5th, 2016 on First Experience
Wonderful commentary, Blackwing. You inspired me to look at the movie more critically. So here are some of my thoughts.
First, building on your thoughts about the "build" of the movie and picking up where you left off in your point #6:
Beginning at about 14:45, after disrobing, Linda does not force herself onto Vanessa. At 14:50, we see Vanessa once again covering her pussy as Linda strips her skivvies. Linda moves in, but does not move Vanessa's left hand. She kisses Vanessa, but maintains distance with the rest of her body. She moves Vanessa down, and Vanessa removes her hand to expose herself, but Linda still maintains physical distance, though now she does some breast caressing. This comes across to me totally as a perceptive lover (and how I wish I had been that perceptive in my youth). Then at 15:20 Linda stands up, creating distance, then brings Vanessa's hand to her thighs. Again, this creates a safety zone for Vanessa. Vanessa is adked to explore, but from a safe and nonthreatening distance, with Linda far outside her personal space.
But now for some issues that I saw as distracting disconnects:
At 15:50 Linda moves in for the face-site, and to me that is jarring. Prior to this moment Linda is working within Vanessa's "safe" zone, being sensitive to Vanessa's hesitancies and leading her gently. Then Linda moves into one the most intimate and charged situations in lesbian erotica, and Vanessa doesn't show any confusion or hesitancy about what Linda is doing or what she should. That just doesn't flow for me. If Vanessa is still "warming up" in a first-time encounter where she has been covering up, protecting, and otherwise expressiong uncertaininty, a sudden shift to a highly intimate and charged love-making position such as a face-sit isn't what I would at all expect from a partner who is being as perspicacious as Linda is portraying. And I would expect someone in Vanessa's position to have some kind of reaction - with surprise being the most positive possibility. And then Vanessa proceeds to provide a face-sit oral that betrays that this isn't her first time. This might work if there were some dialogue between them, with Linda providing guidance and assurence. But instead Linda moves into position and Vanessa knows what to do - even though she ostensibly has not done this before and has been reticent about being exposed to Linda. To me there's a real disconnect here.
Then at 18:00 we are back to Linda once again guiding Vanessa's hand for a manual stimulation. How does Vanessa go from being a pro on a face-sit to needing guidance for a manual clit rub?I also feel a need for some added comment on the lack of dialogue. As with so many movies here, there was essentially no dialogue, which to me seems totally artificial. If this were a real-life situation would they have gone through the entire scene without saying a word to each other? Would not Linda have provided some words of encouragement and tenderness to Vanessa? Linda is ostensibly the more experienced partner, and Vanessa is hesitant and uncertain. In that setting wouldn't Linda have been providing direction and encouragement to Vanessa, reassuring her that her instincts are fine and guiding her with suggestions?*****
A few other miscellaneous comments and observations.
Linda's "wetness" duirng sex has been evident in numerous other movies. But in the insertions of 18:18 to 18:30 there's nothing evident. Again, at 21:30 Vanessa's fingers are not showing moisture. Even at 22:40, post-coitus, if Linda is wet it's barely perceptible. That's a big Contrast that with many of her other scenes where her wetness is evident, and particularly with her B/G scenes where she almost always squirts.This film is a good contrast with the "First" flick featuring Agatha and Whitney Conroy, with Whitney guiding Agatha. Same general concept, but "First" is more the "fairy tale" optimism, and "First Experience" is more the stark reality.
So in the end, this flick is good but it falls short of what it could have been. As performers showing a story, there are disconnects, And as love-making it seems that throughout the performance they are just playing roles that have some directorial gaps.
Wonderful. As others have noted Taissia passion is evident.
Personally I really enjoy movies where it is clear that the woman is assertive in the relationship. Viewing this movie I realized that there are two levels to this. One is where we seeing the woman being active and directive, ensuring that her interests are front and center.
But there is a level beyond, where the woman is totally in control and is playing the man. She knows exactly what she is doing to him, she loves doing, and he delights in seeing his woman getting that pleasure. There is another site where I have a favorite performer for whom it is clear she relishes this. You can see her playing her man, she consciously builds him to a point where he is just lost to animal passion, and when he reaches that place a little sly smile crosser her face. Wonderful.
Much of that comes across in this movie. Taissia is in control all of the way. Pairing her with Kristof in this setting is excellent, as he has both the tools to be a "toy" as well as the temperament to match up.
One technical issue: it appears that there is a color balance issue that starts at about 23:47 and goes to 24:10. Suddenly the color balance goes cold, then warms back up again.

Did anyone notice that the luxurious bathroom shown at 26:58 has been used as the setting for some other team Lupin films?

Also loved the giggling when they roll over after Assoli climaxes. That appears totally spontaneous, and is exactly what would be expected in real life. To me, little spontaneous things like that are what sets certain films apart from others. Those are the elements that make me believe that even though it is film-making, the performers aren't just "performing", but within the film-making are also sharing with us some personal intimacy.
And if you want to do films about the art of sex and that include relationships among the lovers as part of the concept, then you almost have to include intimacy. You can skip the intimacy and just do raw sex. We have some excellent examples of that . But when you go beyond and bring in the personal relationship, then conveying intimacy is critical.
Sunday, February 28th, 2016 on One Morning
Assoli sinking to the floor is a highlight. If it was planned the ladies pulled it off perfectly. But it sure looks undirected. Assoli leaning against the door, immediately preceding, appears plotted. But when she drops that completely appears to be her giving in to the occasion and no longer expending the energy to stay upright.
Playing some catch-up here.
I can totally believe this was easy to shoot. The ladies definitely did not appear to need much direction. I'm sure there was some occasionally adjustments in positions - there are scenes thwere that are too well composed for me to believe it just happened - most notably in the scenes where they are on the floor together. But I am totally sure that after those brief interruptions the two of them got right back into the flow.
A wonderful film. Saved as one of my favorites.
Clearly, to implement what I'm suggesting will require significant collaboration between the performers and the production team. In no way am I suggesting that the performers just show up and the cameras start rolling.
But I am also drawing on the knowledge that the performers are familiar with what is involved in film-making at SexArt. What I would like to elicit is a performance that draws directly from their relationship. I am expecting that in the process that will lead to a high level of involvement with each other during the production.
And in the artistic context, it would create a different type of work. It wouldn't simply be performers enacting someone else's fiction- the end product should be something that incorporates actual erotic connections between/among the performers.
Monday, February 22nd, 2016 on Room Of Secrets Part 1
This seems like a good opportunity to put forward something that I have been thinking about for a while. This idea first germinated after viewing the wonderful Kiara/Matt chemistry in “Rejoice”. That started me fantasizing about what would happen if the two of them were simply put together and the cameras were allowed roll. And in that context my fantasy would be to see them bantering and flirting, coaxing and encouraging, giggling and laughing – doing the natural things that couples do (rather than the non-verbal productions that seem de rigueur in the industry, including SexArt). And perhaps, post-coitus, to spend several minutes with bodies fully intertwined, savoring the moment and each other, and sustaining the physical and emotional connection (rather than the unnatural and artificial immediate male pull-out and female egestion).
So, with that intro … my thought is for a film series built upon the situations where there is a connection between the performers that goes beyond the ordinary, and where the two (or more) are willing to share in front of a camera somewhat more intimately. My concept is that rather than placing the performers into a setting devised by the production team and asking that they accommodate themselves to the producers’ vision, the performers instead would develop a setting/situation of their own design and choosing and the production team would work with them to help them convert that concept into a quality endeavor. In my mind's eye, the end result would be a film that directly portrays, at a SexArt quality leve,l an actual relationship that the lovers share among themselves – not the performers creating someone else’s erotic vision, but rather a more direct depiction of an actual erotic relationship.
I can see a lot of possibilities here, depending on the performers. Perhaps they choose to create a backstory that interests them, such as a makeup after an argument, or a tryst after a romantic stroll through a park or a night on the town. Maybe they want to show something of how their relationship built and progressed. Perhaps they simply want to start directly with lovemaking and skip everything else. Anything would be fine, as long as it their basic idea and they are in control of the development and articulation.
After that , it would be nice if the film included some interviews and discussions with the performers about the film and their ideas underlying it. Perhaps talking about how they worked together to come up with the concept and setting, as well as other aspects of the process and production that they are comfortable sharing. If they want to talk about some of the history in their relationship at MetArt, perhaps some interspersed with a few relevant clips or stills.
I see this as somewhat in the vein of “Girls Love Sex”, except it would be focused on partners rather than solo. To be effective, I expect that it would occur irregularly, appearing only when there is such a connection between/among performers that they can honestly, candidly, and naturally enter into an effort such as this.

Two things I love most about Eufrat:
1. The big grin that emerges when she sends her partner into orgasm. That isn't faked; she loves it when she delights her partner.
2. The furrows in her brow when she orgasms herself. So cute and so intense.
I notice that she hasn't been very active in film-making recently, and it's been awhile since she has appeared here. If she has retired I would like to thank her for her years of sharing herself with us. The movies and videos she has made when directors and producers have had the good sense to allow her and her partners to be themselves are real treasures. If she hasn't retired fully, I hope that SexArt can give her some opportunities to continue to share with us as she has grown and evolved in her womanhood.
Sunday, January 31st, 2016 on Eufrat Mai
An ordinary artist with reasonable skills can take the overt and ramp it up several notches higher. A master artist, though, knows that if one starts with the subtle, the end product can ultimately be more forceful when the work is completed. But it takes artistic vision to "see" that end work. And after that it then takes skill to actually make that vision happen.
When a lesser artist attempts to something like that, it usually flops badly and leaves us (well me, anyway) wishing that they had stayed within their competence or that they had had the good sense to keep the product to themselves and learn from their mistakes. (A good case in point is the sites that attempt to replicate what SexArt is doing.) Team Lupin consistently shows that in this genre that only are they the masters, they are also pushing forward.
A little while back I was looking at some of the earlier SexArt products, from the time before Teams Lupin and Locantis were producing. I think I've been spoiled. In my mind, the best from that era stands up well, but those peaks were hit much less frequently, and the overall average was so much lower. To be honest, Team Lupin now "scores" more consistently now than they did at first. That shows their progressing mastery of the genre.

Six men and one woman - though the woman says she is the "boss" and none of the men dare contradict her. Gotta love that. But where are Marcella and Adelle? If they're part of the team why aren't they part of the video?
I also admire the team who are present for being interviewed on topics such as this in their non-native tongues. Often though, I thought there was some hesitancy in the interview when they weren't quite sure how to express themselves. I'm a big supporter of letting people speak in the language with which they are most familiar comfortable, and letting a good translator provide subtitles. The non-verbal language is still be conveyed. But too often I see interviewees speaking in a second tongue while they are searching for words and worrying about nuance, and because of that the non-verbal communication components suffer.

Begging your pardon, Rose, but I think that what would thrill most of us would like is an interview with Kiara and Matt together with some straight talk about their shoots. It sure seems as if there is some special chemistry between them, and it would be spectacular to see that manifest in an interview type of setting.
Suppose, for example, that they started actual bantering during an interview. Swoon City, methinks.

Saturday, December 5th, 2015 on Summer Breeze
Totally in agreement _)fer_realz. Especially about each scene being better than the last. Together they come across so totally as a real couple - that just ties the whole movie together.
This was a flick that after going through it quickly at first, I saved it to get back to later. Which I've now done.
So, I am seldom taken by scenes where the setting becomes the focus, particularly when the setting dictates position. Almost invariably it turns into a form of sexual acrobatics that doesn't connect with me as to what real lovers would do. It invariably comes across as totally scripted.
This was one of the few I've seen that came across to me as genuine. Of course the chemistry between Kiara and Matt simply exudes. But I also came away with a sense that the two of them, individually and as a couple, were actually enticed by the setting. And that brought the whole thing together for me. It was so easy for me to see the whole thing happening and progressing as it did.
Plus, we had talking, giggling, laughing, smiles. All things that real-life lovers do, and that seem to come so naturally with Kiara and Matt. And they are doing more and more of that in each flick, which is a major part of why each flick gets better - they are increasingly acting like real life lovers behave.
So, this one really hit the mark for me. It just might be my favorite b/g flick. Not necessarily on it's own, but because by now those of us who are regulars share a backstory with Kiara and Matt that adds richness that a casual viewer might not capture.

I think I'm more cynical than you, I guess. The people who understand and appreciate the law of unintended consequences are those who have graduated from the University of Hard Knocks. And that has nothing to do with whether one went to a university. Nor does it have anything to do with one was trained in poly sci, chemical engineering, swabbing decks, or detailing automobiles.
When I was in school a professor (whose wisdom I only appreciated later in life) commented in class that to tell someone "May all your wishes come true" is actually a curse, not a blessing. Most of usl tossed it off as a poor attempt at humor.
Curmudgeon that I've become, I see our universities churning out thousands of graduates who have been trained to believe that they are the educated, the informed, the capable. Because that is what the faculty in our colleges and universities believe about themselves and their institutions. And those folks are so eager for their chance to put their passions into practice.
But the first step in wisdom is to realize that none of us is as smart and wise as we think we are.
Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015 on Erotica versus Porn: Which do you support? Part 1
Hey, friend. I was thinking of you when I posted comments up thread about the need for language and verbal communication in our movies.
I wanted to add that I am an engineer, and my training (40 years ago) specifically addressed the Law of Unintended Consequences - we were taught not only to look at solution but to look at where we might delude ourselves into error - in statistics, for example, doing beta error analysis (i.e., the chances of accepting as true an conclusion that is actually false. That's a concept that I don't seem much of in the world today - I see a lot of information pronouncing correlations that have been shown, using alpha tests. But when I review the information the beta analyses are missing, and presumably were never done.
In my cynical moments, I attribute that to the fact that most people teaching these concepts in our academic institutions have never been in a real life situation where they had to live with the consequences of actually making a decision that put people's lives at risk.
Tuesday, December 1st, 2015 on Erotica versus Porn: Which do you support? Part 1
I don't think the languages should be an issue. As you have pointed out previously, the VLC media player will support subtitling. So we don't need to know the exact words; SA can provide a translation. But we certainly can grasp the "body language" component. If the scene involves two artists conversing in Russian, Czech, Romansch, Swahili, or Tagalag, we can grasp whether they are fighting, flirting, feasting, or fucking.
But people talk. And when they don't talk when appropriate it creates artificiality. And artificiality in love is exactly what I perceive SA is trying to skew away from. That's why its absence detracts.
An excellent contribution, BlackWing. And to the mods, admins, and guiding forces here at SexArt, I extend my gratitude for providing a forum this type of excellent discussion. This is a good community to be part of.
I'm mulling over the discussion and will probably post more later, perhaps in one of the later parts. Yet I wanted to chime in regarding one element that bugs me, and about which I know others feel more passionately. And that is the importance of verbal language in differentiating erotica from porn.
Communication is central in establishing connection in love-making. Of course, non-verbal communication is critical - one of the principles of linguistics is that the most forceful communication is that which is conveyed without words. Here at SexArt that is often euphemized by referring to the "chemistry" in the movie. But verbal communication is also crucial in relationships. And when the setting is one that cries out for words of connection but no words are said, the setting slides more in the direction of porn. The lack of language when language would otherwise be natural inevitably makes the depiction more about the physical components than the love-making. If that is also paired with a script that progresses through a predetermined set of sexual positions that are structured to show the genital action ----- the separation from porn starts to get blurry.
Returning to porn vs. erotica, this is where language becomes significant. Porn almost invariably uses language that has little to no real content. I will readily grant that no words, as is the case in many of the SexArt movies, is better than the words that are used in unabashed porn . But that's like settling for faux-crab sashimi when you could as easily have freshly steamed Dungeness in the shell (which is certainly one of my food porns).
In thinking about the importance of language in creating relationship, a wonderful example is the Polaroid camera commercials featuring Mariette Hartley and James Garner from the 1970's and 1980's (when Polaroid cameras were still a thing). If you're too young to remember or you need a refresher, most of them are available at YouTube. When those commercials started running, many people believed that the two of them were a married couple simply because the banter was so natural and so real.
Imagine what our movies would be like if that same connection were part of the SexArt movies. Suppose we saw that kind of playfulness and communication as a lead-in. It would be so easy to imagine that the couple continued their banter in private, leading to some pretty hot loving. I almost drool imagining Matt and Kiara having that kind of playfulness in part of their setup. They do some physical banter, but if they were able to add the type of banter that lovers do, I think it would be pretty awesome,
And again, getting back to the porn vs. erotica differentiation, imagine how communication such as that would further legitimize and validate erotica - and by contrast would further expose porn as the bastardization of real sexuality that it is.

Viewed this again, and given the intensities show, I found that the lack of talk between the two of them to be jarring. Some conversation and banter between them would have added greatly to an otherwise fine film.

Yes - please come back, Ariel. And I would urge you and Andres to consider showing sexuality evolving as we move into our 30s and even 40s. Some of the most interesting erotic movies I've seen have involved performers for who left age 29 some time ago. But their is an edginess, accomplishment, and even intensity in their sexuality that is quite refreshing, honest, and exciting. In a way that the nubile youngsters can never get to.
I first recall being struck by you early in your career, when you were one of the nubile young things. You subsequently took control of your career and made sure that you were not just another pretty face who faded after age 30. Comparing those early moves with some of your more recent shows how you have evolved in your life and your sexuality.
SexArt isn't a traditional porn site, díky bohu. Here the performers/models aren't treated as mere objects - they are real people. And real people age.
I think it would be wonderful if SexArt, led by you, developed an body of work that shows the evolution of sexuality among men and women as they grow and mature. And this would be a helpful addition to the art of erotica - that people can still sizzle even as they age beyond the bounds of stupid porn.

You're right, Rose. There isn't a real good word that I can think of, at least in English. "Model" doesn't do it for me, because in one sense it implies posing, which doesn't work for me, at least in a video setting. And in the other sense that you mention below, it still to me connotes artifice.
"Actor" doesn't work, because in the best cases what is happening has moved beyond acting. I expect that when a mainstream does a sex scene I'm viewing acting. I'm sure that also happens in much of the video here. But, and as attested by you in shoots where you have been present, it's often more authentic than that.
I most often use "performer" because to me that comes a bit closer than acting or modeling. Ad it works in the sense that a script is still being followed - this isn't a voyeur shoot of a person (or two, or three, or more) having sex. So a performance is going on. But sometimes it seems to move beyond a simple performance. And when it moves beyond a performance to me is when it gets magical.
So I use "performers" as my default term. But I wish I could think of a word that also connoted intimacy.
Downthread Rocky46 mentioned dignity and intimacy. Those are good concepts.

Wish I had known they were shooting in Lanzarote. I would have tried to book some vacation time there and just wandered around - cause you never know what you might encounter ........
Not to mention that Lanzarote seems like a wonderful place to visit regardless of what might be transpiring cinematically. The island appears strikingly similar to the Big Island of Hawai'i, which is a favorite destination.
Wednesday, November 25th, 2015 on Tracy takes Timanfaya!
I've been wondering about something for awhile, and your posts triggers a response.
Why are the performers called "models"? It seems to me that what we is being captured and portrayed goes far beyond modeling, and to cast them as "models" doesn't do them justice. I have often said, and I repeat again, that many of the performers (and especially the women) expose and share with us intimate parts of themselves that few, if any, traditional "actors" or "actresses" would ever dare.
As well, I have an impression that only the women are described as "models". For example, I don't recall Matt, Kristof, Juan, or any of the other men ever being identified as "models". (And in making that statement I recognize that my memory may be failing; I won't use age as an excuse. So if my memory is off on that point I will gladly accept correction.)
So, Rose, I personally have a hard time thinking of our performers as "models". In my mind, it doesn't do them justice.
Sunday, November 22nd, 2015 on Strelnice
With so many comments on the setup of this movie, I thought I might add my comments to the mix.
The problem that I see is the transition from the photo shoot to the hotel room. How did they wind up in the room together? Presumably they did not have a relationship prior to the photo shoot; the premise seems to be that they made a connection during the session, which led to a later rendezvous to carry on what started during the photo shoot. So if they were just two models coming together for a shoot, they wouldn't have been sharing a room.
What's missing for me is a bridge between the photo shoot and the hotel room. Perhaps there is another portion of the photo shoot, in a studio and more risque, in which the connection continues to advance and becomes more explicit. Perhaps there is a time after the shoot in which they spend time together, delving deeper into each other, and proceeding to the tryst..
So to me there is a discontinuity between the modeling shoot on the bridge - where there is a suggested connection - to the hotel room, where relations are raging.
Sunday, November 8th, 2015 on Models
Wonderful commentary, to which I would only affirm that sympathetic responses (nervous system and other) make a tremendous difference to me. I know it's a movie, but when it comes to erotica I want to believe that the performers are participating as well as performing. I have little interest in watching them put on a performance for the viewers. I have more interest where I can credibly believe that the performers are honestly, openly, and enjoyably sharing their sexuality with us.
When that happens, for me I feel a connection between performer and audience that seldom occurs in "mainstream" cinema. At those moments, it's as if that fourth wall isn't really a wall at all.

¡Dios mío – que estupendo! Creo que me faltan las palabras para expresar mis sentidos después de ver este video. Mis felicidades a todos que trabajaron en esta película.
What set this apart for me was the dialogue between Amarna and Franck. For me this added a sense of genuineness that often is missing in most of the videos here. In real life, lovers interact with each other - physically, emotionally, verbally, and spiritually. To me, when the verbal interaction is missing it almost always comes across to me as just actors acting.
After all of that I would have enjoyed having Franck finish inside of Amarna. However, I presume that was Amarna's choice for her personal reasons that are none of our business. And never, ever, will I discount my sentiments because an actor or actress makes that choice.
Sunday, April 26th, 2015 on Parole Parole Parole
I agree with horsemaster here.
I would add that I also enjoyed the Sylvie was in command the entire time, and both she and Thomas successfully carried that through the entire film.
This premise is very similar to a premise that I have seen on another site that uses many of the same performers as SexArt. Needless to say, this one is carried off much more slyly and seductively.
Monday, November 3rd, 2014 on Out Of Business
Hayley: Yeah -we've commented about this before with in the various discussions about "authenticity" and I think you and I are of the same mind. It's certainly been my experience that love is about closeness, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. When people pull away at climax to enable “the shot”, that just doesn't work for me. In real life people consummate by joining together, not by separating. In a film when I see people separating to enable “the shot”, I immediately react that I’m seeing direction and acting, not reality.
I guess I'm not surprised that this movie (so far) hasn't garnered that top-most ratings I think it deserves, because it doesn't have the requisite explicit bits at climax. That, to me, raises the whole topic of how one can even rationally think about reducing perceptions of eroticism to a single number. It doesn't make sense to me, and for myself I've asked myself at times why I even play the game. But when I view movies like "Unplugged", I wonder if I'm not hurting everyone involved with the effort if I don't give them a strong rating.
That was even more of an issue for with “Soldier”. I knew that one wasn’t going to garner strong ratings because of the content, but I was totally impacted by it. Viewing it was an emotional roller-coaster, and it took me to places I never expected to go at a site such as this. For almost the entire movie, if I was not in tears outright, I was on the verge of tears. Sometimes those were tears of sadness, other times tears of joy, and on other occasions both joy and sadness simultaneously. On an erotic scale – not anywhere close to 10. But as an experience in explicit film, it was by far the most moving thing I have viewed. I had to give it a “10”, not for erotic content but for where it took me as a film.
Sunday, October 5th, 2014 on Unplugged
I have been collecting my thoughts on this one for a couple of days, and I think I'm now ready to offer some thoughts. Before I add my own, thoughts, I would like to say that I agree with almost all of the sentiments posted by others.
When I saw that the performers in this film were Samantha Bentley and Armanda, directed by Aris Locanta, I think my pulse rate step-jumped by about 20 beats per minute. And from there it only increased further, logarithmically at first and then asymptotically, to the peak along with the performers. Whew!!!!!.
This movie came across to me as one of the most intensely authentic GG scenes I have seen. Especially with the tribbing scene at the end. Aris, thank you for letting that scene be about the connection of the ladies. In every other tribbing scene that I have seen the performers pull their torsos away from each other to enable videography of the grinding. That, of course, occurs at the expense of the closeness and physical intimacy. You made the good decision to let the intimacy and passion between the performers prevail. That exemplifies what sets apart SexArt from almost every other erotic site out there. To everyone involved in this effort, performers, production team, and SexArt admins, please accept my thanks. (You’ve already accepted my money for a one-year membership, and SexArt is the only site I’ve visited where I’ve had the slightest interest to sign up for anything more than a one-month membership.)
To both of our performers – I hope that during the filming you experienced at least one-quarter of the pleasure and excitement that was captured in the movie. If you enjoyed at least that much, it must have been an enjoyable time for both of you. And if what was captured by the production crew is close in measure to what might have been going on between the two of you … I can only say that it must be wonderful to experience such bliss, and get paid for it as well!!! :)
To Samantha – I always appreciate the passion and intensity that you convey in your films. This effort was among your finest that I have seen. It has oft been said that Spanish is the Loving Tongue. I hope that you have many more opportunities to have Armana give you Spanish lessons. And with Armana’s able assistance I trust that you will find that Spanish is a loving tongue literally as well as figuratively.
A Armana - ¡Qué un gran placer ver una película de te otra vez, y además de Samantha . Como siempre nos has ofertado vistas a las pasiones de tu espíritu. Admiro tu fortaleza y tu honestidad. Espero que SexArt y Sr. Locante te oferten un contexto en lo que continúes haciéndote estimulada sacar las profundidades de su almo y compartirlas con nosotros. Te doy un abrazo.

Kiara - I hope you come by again to get this message.
I want to let you know how much I value and appreciate what you and so many of the other performers do in these movies. In your movies, and especially when you are with Matt, you convey that you are connecting with your partners at a deeper and more intimate level. Yes, it is a movie, but at the same time you make it more than just a movie.
That makes what you do here far more erotic and sensual than the calculated and staged "steamy" scenes in mainstream movies. Congratulations and many thanks.
Thank you for being willing to be open and to share intimate parts of your soul with us.
Monday, October 26th, 2015 on Perder Tiempo
I totally love the comments about Matt and Kiera Lord, almost begging them to start dating. When you get those kinds of comments from viewers, that conveys to me that a tangible connection was conveyed between the performers.
And then when Kiera posts that, yeah, she really liked working with Matt .....

Earlier this evening I was looking at some of Bo Llanberris' work with Elle Alexandra. And I couldn't help but fantasize about seeing Elle and Amarna together. In the hands of one of our gifted cinematographers, we could have red-on-black. Or red-on-white. Or red-on-emerald. Or red-on-gold. Or red-on-navy.
Actually, it could be red-on-anything. Realistically, If it were Elle and Amarna I think I would be hard pressed to say afterward exactly what the background color was.

Haven't viewed this yet, but I wanted to mention that if memory serves correctly Iwia and Johny also have a real life relationship. That greatly added to my enjoyment of the "First" video that featured them. Perhaps it was my imagination running away with me, but in that flick I thought there was something in Iwia that I hadn't seen in many of her other BG pics. Not as "explosive", shall I say, as I've seen her "be" at other times, but she came across as more genuine. I viewed it again several days to see if it still hit me the same way, and it did.
I hope this one carries through the same way.

¡Ay, ay, Amarna y Linda! Sus pasiones han chamuscado mis ojos. Pues, es vale la peña.
One of the things that sets apart the videos here are little embellishments or story elements that add texture and richness - things that would never occur to the makers of erotica at many other sites.
In this movie, for me it was the braids. I liked the snippets at the start where she was braiding her hair as Matt was getting things set up. Then I enjoyed the braiding trailing down her back and side. The plumeria was a nice touch, and I thought it was cute - and realistic - when it fell out of the braids.
Now that being said, I am looking forward to another movie where we see that gorgeous hair in its full glory. Judging by the length of the braid, it must fall most of the way down her back. To see all of that hair tossing and turning, cradling her face, creating a private space as she and her lover draw in together ..... The hair can be a small movie inside the movie, or like a supporting member of the cast.
Not to say I have a hair fetish, but hair offers great possibilities in this genre. And I suspect Erika has a head of hair that would offer great opportunities in the hands of one of the great teams here.

Amarna - as always, thanks for stopping by and sharing some thoughts.
It seems to me that g/b/g and b/g/b threesomes may the most challenging erotic scenes to shoot realistically and effectively. There's certainly no lack of attempts. But I've seen no more than a handful that I found worthwhile or stimulating.
In reflecting on the g/b/g pairings that have worked for me, I see two main components. First is that the women need to remain in control. The scenes that work for me are where the scenes focus on the women, and the guy's role is secondary. He is there to participate the women and extend their lovemaking. Done properly that can be totally erotic from a male perspective. But a setup where the main focus is on a guy being serviced by two women almost invariably is a misogynistic flop in my mind.
The second component that elevates the scene is a strong emotional and physical connection between the women. That fits with the women being in control; in the depictions that I have found the most compelling that relationship is front and center. The women enjoy each other and have a connection, and the two of them, collectively and jointly, are bringing the man along with them. The most well done g/b/g I've seen involved a g/g couple who had done some smoking hot scenes together, where it seemed clear there either some chemistry or some extremely good "acting", and then there was a film with an added guy. You could see the two of them carrying on as usual, but almost using the guy as a toy. And he seemed to love it as well.
To be fair, it can also work with a man and a woman having the standing relationship and adding another party to the mix - Waltz with Me being an example. But I think that setup is even trickier and demands even more that third party sets the rules and establishes control.
So moving on to the movie. I really liked that the women were in charge. This wasn't about a guy being serviced by two ladies. They were taking the lead. Even Gina in paroxysms; she put herself there and though she was receiving she was in control.
The big lack for me was that I didn't get the sense of a relationship between Gina and Linda. Yeah, they seemed to enjoy elements. I enjoyed it when Gina seemed to be getting off on seeing Linda get excited. But all I caught from the movie between them was physical. I would have loved something that conveyed that there was something more going on between Linda and Gina. Or among the three of them.
So to my mind, a good flick, but there was a bit of a hole in me that I really would have liked to be filled.

This is awesome.
Most often, I believe, many people approach erotic movies as a mental journey into a fantasy, leaving behind for awhile the difficulties and worries in life. It certainly works that way for me and many others that I know. A movie like "Soldier" doesn't offer that escape, and thus will be uncomfortable or unsettling.
I read some of the comments before hand, so I knew what to expect. And I was blown away. The range of emotions is stunning. I bounce from the feelings of sorrow and grief to joy and sharing. That lonesomeness that is like no other to the intimacy of love that is the polar opposite.
Certainly the movie is somber, but viewing it caused me to think back to my personal losses, and of how those people remain alive in me through the memories. Those things happened, and they are a part of me, and always will be a part of me. And in the same way she is preserving in her what he still is.
This film works on so many levels. Thanks to all for this effort and for raising the bar once again.

If this is the beta interface I would dump it. Jarring, to say the least.
More importantly, the interface sets the stage for what follows. The old interface to me felt consistent with what I was finding in the content. The feel to me of this interface is much more like a porn site.

" I think a scene with a new girl is going to be much better if she's paired with an experienced model."
Such as when Whitney worked with Agatha on her first g/g scene. That was an outstanding shoot, as Agatha's nervousness/reticence was evident, as well as Whitney bringing her through the scene. That movie cemented my bond with Agatha, because I felt a kind of human connection with her, because she was willing to be a bit vulnerable and to be comfortable letting us be with her through her vulnerability.
[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.
Saturday, November 7th, 2015 on Models
Rose - I'll start by saying that as a matter of personal preference anal generally doesn't do anything for me. With that being said, if anal activity is something that the model enjoys and adds to his or her personal gratification in the movie, not only do I have no problem with it, it actually can add to enjoyment. For example, in the Snow Fun series episode with Terry Sullivan and Matt Ice - the butt plug was Terry's idea and added greatly to the scene because it "fit in" so well.
I do not care for it at all when I sense that the anal activity is gratuitously added to pander to an audience or to push a boundary for the mere sake of being "edgy".
My feelings about bondage/domination scenes are similar. No personal interest. But if it is something that a model enjoys, that adds to his or her personal eroticism during the production, that is a different element.
Wednesday, October 28th, 2015 on Behind the Door
I absolutely love the cover shot on this movie. We know that Matt and Kiara are comfortable together, and that is totally conveyed.
Thanks for your thoughts. I understand what you're saying, and my feelings are mixed.
There's a part of me that appreciates the voyeuristic element. On one level the voyeurism adds an additional level of intrigue. And I think that's a really difficult aspect to do in a film without having the effort career off track. When I see a movie like this I'm invariably drawn to "Body Double", which I was repulsed by because of it's misogyny and it's apparent (to me) perspective on women as mere objects. In the Stalker series I have felt that Team A&A has effectively not strayed over that line. So that leaves an element of interest in the story line.
At the same time, working the visuals from the perspective of the voyeur creates an additional set of issues. Most significantly, that perspective inevitably diminishes the celebration of sexuality between the protagonists. Which puts the creative team into the situation of trying to balance between exploring the world of the stalkers versus the interplay between the lovers.
It's a difficult balancing act. This is a movie that, no matter how well executed, will inevitably disappoint a substantial number of viewers. Too bad.
Monday, October 26th, 2015 on Stalker 3
Please let us know the outcome. And i suggest that your reply be posted not here but on the blog.
At the risk of asking too much, it would be nice if some of the models could respond to some of the sentiments posted.
I'm blushing Rose. Your words are too kind.
Is there any way that we can get yours and my sentiments translated to Czech, Russian, Hungarian, Slovak, Romanian, Spanish, or ...? I have this sense that "the world' denigrates performers (especially women - double standard here ) who are willing to take risks that other performers are not. Even though "the world" might not appreciate the risks, I, for one, would like to let our performers know that I appreciate, and enjoy :-), their sterling efforts!!!!
Rose - it's not just men being cast in stupid macho roles. It's also women not being cast as object bimbos. When SA hits its mark it’s when two (or more) people evince that they are connecting as people, and not merely as performers. To me, that's when SA surmounts the high hurdle.
I’m going to expound again, gathering some things I’ve been thinking about for several months. And I hope that I what am writing, late at night my time, makes some sense.
I want to start by saying that I have enormous respect for the performers at SA, particularly the female performers. If I watch “mainline” actors/actresses doing an erotic scene, I know that it’s just a performance. I leave the scene and I know that’s all that it is.
Speaking brutally, I leave such scenes feeling cheated. I’m quite comfortable with people putting on a persona for different roles. For example, Alan Rickman can be Hans Gruber in Die Hard and Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series. Doesn’t bother me one bit.
But to me an intimate sex scene reaches a different level. I don’t want to leave such a scene with a feeling that I just saw a performance. I crave the feeling, however fleeting, that for those moments captured in the video, the two were one.
And that requires openness, honesty, and vulnerability from our performers that you will never see from more mainstream performers. Could you imagine, for example, Meryl Streep providing the performance that Iwia put forth in “The Contract”?
Thus, kudos to all of our artists here at SA. Because they are bringing elements of themselves into their work that most mainstream performers would never put forth. That’s requires a level of guts and bravery is beyond the demands placed on more mainstream performers. If any of you are reading these comments, I encourage you to recognize that you are the more daring, that you are the artists going beyond normal bounds. You are the performers who have the bravery to expose parts of your intimate selves in ways that almost no mainstream actress/actor would ever dare. Never, for not even one moment, should you ever feel lessened, cheapened, or demeaned because you are willing to be more frank or vulnerable in your performances.
Sorry for the garbled last couple of sentences. Wish there was two or three minute editing option for posts.

"Men want to be him, women want to be with him, right?"
I going to respond to this from my perspective as a heterosexual male, who believes decidedly that the two sexes have fundamental differences, and that we need to recognize and celebrate those differences. I greatly appreciate any comments on these thoughts that are offered by the community
To my mind, a man who is confident in his masculinity responds naturally and honestly to a woman who is similarly confident in her femininity. He offers himself to her; she responds by opening herself to him and responding to him. He reciprocates in kind; in the end both have offered themselves, opened themselves, received each other, and united themselves. Perhaps for that moment, or perhaps more enduringly. Whatever is appropriate at that moment.
But I’m not just talking physically. In my experience there is a base level of masculine enjoyment that is purely physical, which we males can easily get into (and to which most porn is directed). But when we’ve joined and the action is done, sometimes we know that it isn’t just jism --- a connection has been made that’s more than physical. And that’s why it’s a hell of a lot easier for many of us to connect post facto. (And is where most porn falls short.)
So when you say “women want to be with him”, what I hear you saying is that Matt opens some part of himself to his partners. Which he can do because he is comfortable in his masculinity. And when you say “Men want to be him”, that resonates with me because the masculinity that Matt portrays comes across to me as a healthy, positive virility. A masculinity that affirms, embraces, and builds other people; not a masculinity that is defined based on subjugating, controlling, or using other people. Nice comment Rose, about "Men want to be him, women want to be with him, right?". I would like to pivot off of that, to talk a bit about my sentiments on the erotic.
To my thinking, a man who is confident in hs
At the outset, I want to say how pleased I was to see an interview with Alis, I hope you are checking in to review comments from members.
Continuing .... here's a bit of a wild thought that's been flitting through my brain at times for about a year. This was triggered by some Sergio Leone film commentary, and building on the Italian connect led me to you as another Italian filmmaker. And I thought what would be the SexArt counterpart to the "Man with No Name" trilogy? Who would be the protagonist? How would you deconstruct the genre to its most basic elements, and then build upon that?
Or do you think that you have already done that and it just blew past me?

Same house as in Lost and Found. Coffee table was a nice touch in the movie as well.

Rose - the models' "comfort level" is absolutely critical to my enjoyment. I feel that the models are sharing a part of themselves with us; they are doing what they are doing freely and willingly and without obligation. That's a key element that differentiates the work here from "porn".
And I believe it shows in the performances. There are other sites where you can find many of these same models in videos where it appears they are doing things just for the money. They might be smiling at the camera, but it clearly isn't the same. And that is pretty much a turn off for me. "Hot" sexuality is about enjoyment, not performance.

and I think I noodled.
The beach appears to be the one fronting on Laguna del Janubio. - Lat/Long = 28.932000°/-13.829000°. And a link to Google street view from the parking area - you can see the rectangular block building on the far ridge that also appears in the video. https://email@example.com,-13.831556,3a,31y,186.24h,91.35t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sBWsUmO-_pbhXzG6tqiXqig!2e0.

Right you are, Rose. I know where Lanzarote is. But Lanzarote is also small enough that I thought that if I panned the shoreline I might be able to identify the location from some of the visual clues available. It can't be too far from a road, because in the early parts of the shot you can see a road with a truck moving on it and a parking area with some vehicles.
Also, from the angle of the sun, the portions where the ladies are running on the beach with the sheets were taken either very early in the day or late in the evening. Also Lanzarote is in the north sub-tropical trade winds, where the prevailing air flow is from the northeast (though influenced by local topography). Since the wind is generally moving from right to left (facing the ocean) and the sun is coming from behind the left shoulder, I figure the beach most likely faces west to northwest.
In scene where Iwia is on her back, her nipples are more erect than I have ever seen them in any other move. Add the flush of her skin and back, some apparent sweat on her back and seeming obliviousness to the camera ... sure came across to me that she was greatly enjoying the action.
would love to see her on video.
Sunday, May 31st, 2015 on Gredina
I'm sure it is the same beach - in both flicks there is the same rectangular block building in the background.
I've spent a bit of time perusing Lanzarote on Google maps, but haven't come up with the exact location. If anyone has pinned down the location, it would be nice to know.
Team Ariel/APF make an excellent case for Lanzarote tourism. I know that if ever I were to hear of plans by team APF/AL to return to Lanzarote at some specific time in the future, I would be motivated to do whatever I could to be sure I were on the island at that time. And then I would spend most of time exploring some of the more secluded areas. Because, as my father often said, sometimes you find the most interesting things when you go to the end of the road.
"Another point is that lot of girls are bored from shoots in "in a big, soft, bed with fluffy white sheets" what Wolvi mentioned earlier :D and they really enjoy and love difficult and original shoots somewhere else than on bed, sofa, chair, etc.. Just because it is different as always."
That is a very interesting and intriguing comment, APF. Thanks for sharing with us a sliver of insight about what it's like on the other side of the lens. It makes perfect sense to me. I can see someone who is a regular performer reaching a point where after a while it starts to become just like any other shoot. The details may differ, but overall it becomes a performance that isn't much different from dozens of others. I can certainly see a challenge to maintain freshness in the midst of that repetition.
So when an opportunity comes to do something different, that makes it more interesting - to do something that isn't essentially the "same-old, same-old". Thanks for expanding my insight Ariel.
As well, thanks for confirming (again) for us that the performers aren't being asked to do anything they aren't comfortable doing. Knowing that makes a huge difference to me.

Will there be dialog where they are speaking with each other, in Czech, while "engaging in action"? Hope so. Verbal interaction always makes the movie seem more "natural", because in real life lovers talk.

I've loved Gina's energy and passion from the first time I ever saw her in a video. Marvelous - she truly conveys that she is enjoying herself - it shows all over her, and the wetness suggests it's manifest inside her as well.
I can think of any number of other pairings with Gina that would be fantastic. In addition to Julia Roca, I can think of Amarna, Agatha, Gabbi de Castello, Uma, Eufrat, Dido, ...
What would help is some kind of way to collect favorites from non-SexArt sites. As a SA member, I routinely download everything for later viewing. But that doesn't leave much opportunity for exploring other sites. If I really want to check out VT, for example, what I would need to do is forget about SA for months, if not a year or more. But if I had a guide to the best - provided by commenters such as you Sydney whom I have come to know and appreciate (in an internet sort of way), that would greatly increase the value.
But wait - here's more thoughts!!! Why not let us buy access to specific models? For the female topography fans among us, how about if we were able to buy access to all things Lucy Li across the platform for, say, 30 days? Or maybe 10 gigs of Lucy for US$ 9.99 - and they buyer can allocate the amongst bit rates, photos sets vs. videos, etc. as she, he, or they choose? Puffy nipple lovers can Blue to their heart's delight? Those who intoxicate on reds can sate on Ariels and Armanas?

Thanks. This really came to the fore for me with the comments by Alis and Amarna Miller on some of their recent efforts together. I confess that Amarna makes me go almost uncontrollably agog. But for as much as I'm smitten by her, I equally much don't want to feel that she (or any other performer for that matter) is merely a toy that I’ve bought for my personal pleasure.
I want the sense that we’re in this together. So, it was really nice for me when Amarna commented that she enjoyed making the movie and that she appreciated knowing that people had enjoyed what she had brought to the movie as well. And Alis commented that what I had responded to most in the "Unplugged" movie was exactly what he and the team had been striving for.
Knowing that makes the movies mean more to me - it adds to the impact for me.
Sunday, November 16th, 2014 on The Audition
Thank you for sharing these types of stories as this about the movies. I know each movie stands by itself, but these little vignettes from the performers or the production team make the whole experience more "personal" to me. Speaking for myself, when there is this interaction I feel more part of a community and less "voyeur".
For me, that is much more rewarding. Because if I am totally separated from the cast and crew, then the movies, the performers, the production team, the site administrators, etc., ultimately become nothing more than bits of a quid pro quo. But in the end I can't reduce sex and love to a quid pro quo. It's too damn personal, too involved, too intimate, too deep.
So please, continue sharing and encourage your performers to visit us as well. Let us enjoy the fantasy of the movie, but also give those of us who wish the opportunity to involve ourselves a bit more deeply.
Saturday, November 15th, 2014 on The Audition
Late to the party, but this is spectacular. Kristof Cale is one of the best male performers, but what can I say about Emylia Aragan??? Despite oozing sexuality and eroticism from every pore of her body, there's so much remaining inside that can't get out that it seems as is she's ready to explode.
Getting to this level isn't just physical sex. The two of them convey that during the lovemaking they are connected at a deeper level than just "humping". If SexArt is about creating moments that transcend performance, when the performance gets us to suspend our disbelief and draws us in with them, then this one hits the mark.
Congratulations to all involved for a superlative effort. To our stars for putting themselves out there for us, and to the production team for being capturing the performances and dong them justice in creating the finished product.
Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 on Snow Fun II - Candle Romance
I should add as well that I think there should be more face-to-face, full frontal contact (both gg and bg and either partner on top). Even though the views of body parts might not be as available, I love seeing the lovers completely wrapped in each other, partaking of every amount of available skin contact.
I also noted Rose's comment about side-by-side 69. That's something I've wondered. I've seen it a few times, and I find it to be very erotic. The little changes in position that the partners can make as they enjoy each others can intriguing - to see one person respond to something and the partners moves a bit to make it easier to continue or extend whatever it they were doing.
Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 on My favorite lesbian sex positions
I agree completely with what others have written. Of course the participants acting, but the real eroticism for me comes when they are also involved emotionally and sexually.
Loved this very much. Kudos to the entire team for putting this together. The intimate scenes were well set up and tastefully executed.
I also enjoyed the outtakes. I wasn't put off by the contrast between the tone of the movie and that of the outtake. Rather what I got from the outtakes was a feeling of camaraderie among the teams and among the performers. And though I know the movie is acting, I like to think that the camaraderie carries forward into the movie as well. When the performers genuinely like each I think that often shows in the final result.
Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 on Faith
Maybe this gets into my predilections. My Mom was a very strong woman, and she and my Dad loved each other intensely. Arriving at a later stage I realize how much that influenced me. I have almost no interest, verging on disdain and loathing, in abusive or exploitative relations. To me in the world of erotica there is nothing better than seeing two partners connecting and sharing together. And to me that clearly conveys that the female is at least as much in control as the man. And even though they are acting and taking direction, I want to know that they are enjoying and sharing. Chemistry, chemistry, chemistry. When it's there it makes all of the difference. It elevates the banal to the sublime and when it's not there it's like slipping on that favorite shirt, only to realize that you forgot about that salsa stain from the last time you went out.

This doesn't have anything to do with the movie, but I wanted to convey something to you. I've been here at SexArt for about a week, just getting integrated into things. I wanted to let you know how very much I appreciate your thoughtful comments. So often I find that you put into words more eloquently and elegantly than I ever could what I am thinking. Thanks for your words and thoughts, and for taking the time to share so much and to articulate your points of view so well.

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016 on Tarot Part 1 - False
There is a wonderful scene starring Alexis Crystal and two guys that mirrors your first example, Wanda (a different site if I remember correctly). She is totally in charge and directs what she wants them to do to/for her. There is NO DP or anal (fortunately) which helps keep the focus on her and her personal lust. it's a beautiful scene. I just love it when a lusty lady knows what she wants and can take control to direct it's fulfillment There are times when guys should just be tools for a lady to use.
Thursday, August 25th, 2016 on Party Boat Part 1
Totally agree, Wanda – and power games are my thing, so that's what makes it fun for me! I think many guys would also love a G/G/B scenario where the guy is the center of attention - major wish fulfilment! I've done that too, and it's fun to give that much pleasure :-)
Agreed, Wanda – I think the story could have been expanded, and I would have loved to see more. I definitely feel it's the best series Team Lupin have done yet, both technically and in terms of story, acting and sex (all of which blew me away). Anna's the star of it for me – I think she's just sensational. But I'm also massively impressed with Cristal, Dolly, Tyler and Max, all of whom played their roles perfectly. Hope to see more of this caliber from Andrej and his team, and I hope they will read and take on board your feedback too.
Hi Wanda, that's really odd. It's not a comment from me either (although I do agree with it). Please report it to support.metart.com, as I've never heard of this happening before. Thanks.
That was kind of my point, Wanda... I think the whole philosophy of SexArt is that we don't make "porn." We make erotica, which is sometimes pretty hardcore, but still "erotica" not "porn." And we try to ensure as much as possible that our models/performers are not actually "acting" in the conventional sense, in that they need to be "in the moment" and genuinely enjoying it and connecting with their partner. But of course on the production side, we still have to be aware of camera angles, lighting, sound etc etc. In this scene, Ariadna made me forget all of that, I felt like I was just watching a couple doing what they do, and when that happens it heightens the experience for me, maybe because I am always on the lookout for production flaws that we can improve upon. I hate when I notice the models acting "porny" because we try never to let it happen – Ariel plays a huge part in this, because she coaches the models to let go of previous experiences on camera and be more real. The models often comment on how much they enjoy working with Team Lupin because they really value the process of "deprogramming" that goes on, and they learn a lot, as well as having a good time. I don't think we having many "porn actress" moments here at SexArt, but I am hypercritical about it! :-)
The ratings for boy-girl movies do continually frustrate me, Wanda. It seems those who don't like boy-girl mark them down on principle, rather than just avoiding them. Too bad - but those of us who do like them know better than to pay attention to the ratings :-)
I believe it was shot in Lanzarote, Wanda.
Great comment, Wanda, for two reasons: firstly, your critique of the scene is really interesting; secondly, I love that "life lesson." I never considered it before, but it's so true. Often it's painful to receive a critique of the work we are most proud of, but when you consider it this way – that it merits the critique because it's of a high standard – it's easier to see it as a positive. Wise words!
I agree, that would have worked nicely. And I enjoy those kind of stories, as we all get to experience many 'firsts' in life! Two of the most challenging things that Team Lupin does - and does extremely well, in my opinion - is teaching new models how to film in the SexArt style, and breaking the bad habits of more experienced models who think they have to moan and scream and overact like crazy. Ariel's own experience as a model, combined with her sensitivity and kindness towards the models, makes her the ideal coach. I think that's why, much more often than not, they get such authentic performances... and why, having raised the bar, we notice when it's not quite so authentic :-)
Sure, I don't disagree with you at all. Just making the point that Kiara was so inexperienced - I think she has a lot of potential, and will get more relaxed in front of the camera with experience. What I can see here (and I guess it's obvious to me, having been on set at the time) is Delphine guiding her through the action rather than it arising more spontaneously.
Some fair points, Wanda. This was only the second scene Kiara ever filmed; it's a lot to ask of a brand new performer to handle dialogue as well as getting used to where the camera is and so on. Look out for her first ever scene next week though - it's a boy-girl, I was on location when it was filmed, and let's just say we were all taken by surprise by how into it she was :-)
Hey Wanda Lust,
I like the way you think. Your post made me smile. Yes the models at SexArt bring more to the table than most, and you should hear them, but they are truly sex scene even though you might not hear their words. The sex is honest, at least it is with the models I work with, and it shows no matter what you may or may not hear. If it is not real on set I know it won't feel real when you see it, so for sure they are truly sex scenes. Keep pushing for dialog, it just might happen.

Hey Wanda Lust. Yes, that would be awesome. Certainly something I would consider.
Not a lost flick, just an intro. Elle is a favorite of mine as well as a good friend. I'll let her know how you all feel about her, I know she'd love to hear it. Elle is not just a performer, she's also quite the tomboy and for the past few years has been a professional racecar driver - probably the best looking racer in the bunch - and she's really good at it. During the Girls Love Sex shoot there was something leaking from under my car. Two seconds after I saw it Elle was under the car locating the source. You got to love a woman who is not only sexy but can fix an oil leak.
Good to be back. I hope you all enjoy the new season of GLS - there's more to come.

March 22, Wanda – here is is:
I totally get what you're saying here, Wanda, and I can definitely see how this would work as a series... but I also really like movies that are just a 'slice of life,' without us knowing the whole back story and motivation. And Team Lupin do such a great job of portraying emotional intimacy and making us care about their performers, but sometimes it's fun to have something different – the interpretation is left open, and you don't have to like the characters to appreciate the heat! Just my thoughts :-)
You can email them to me, Wanda: firstname.lastname@example.org :-)
Excellent comment – I agree in all respects, Wanda. I really like the way you think through the integrity of the story; if you ever feel like trying your hand at script writing or erotic fiction for us I'd love to see it!
Thanks Wanda, it's being fixed :-)
Just being in Tracy's presence is pretty wonderful.... she literally lights up the room.

Thursday, March 24th, 2016 on Two cuties and a superstar: location report day two
oh yes :-)
I agree, Wanda! It's one of life's little mysteries. I have given up trying to figure it out, because the clue is in the name... "Sex" + "Art" and I agree, this type of creativity really hits the mark for me. But some members really do just want to see "attractive people fucking" and that's fine too.. "to each his or her own"... :-)
I think that's a really good approach, Wanda! I don't vote at all – being an 'Insider' so to speak I don't think it's fair – but I know the movies I would rate as a 10, and this is definitely one of them.
Ignore the ratings, Wanda... this is a perfect TEN to me! :-)

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 on Eufrat Mai
I am impressed with the opinion here… I fully agree with your comments regarding post-coitus, savoring the moment and sustaining the physical and emotional connection. This is Nirvana in short.
Yet, this is pre-explosion conditions which is extremely difficult to manage… could be even more difficult on the stage. Those are the moments where man is in full confrontation with nature, with all the chemistry and hormones burning him to ejaculate at once… Unless absolute self discipline, there is no way to stand in front of the nature but obey. Surely some chemicals and sprays can be helpful to cool down imminent meltdown… but at the cost of emotional connection…? What has to be done has to be done in the minds of the parties prior to the commencement of reaction. In the end they are the ones that will mine jewels and wonders out of the gardens of nature.
Second point is, incorporation of the dreams of the performers into the product either ad-hoc basis or based upon a script of their own. Obviously partners fulfilling their own urges at their preferences would be highly clean, explosive and long lasting… however, it may take more than what you think to convert it to a commercial format. Professional support of the production team is a must. Could take some tedious work to plan all the seconds of the product, but once mechanics of it is established, it could be easier.
To me, essence of the success lies in the mutual arousal… it is the spark of the arousal that creates fire in each movie… it is triggered sometimes by a smile, sometimes smell… sometimes voice… sometimes hate, sometimes joy… in short , any event that exceeds ordinary and hits the spot… in this movie, the spark of arousal it is the arousal and thirst of Kiara spying Vanessa and Matt…
That's a really great idea, Wanda! I think Ariel and Andrej will like it too, it ties in with an idea we've been discussing. Feeling inspired now :-)

No worries, we always find a way how to express ourselves :D :D :D
Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 on Team Lupin talks about making movies for SexArt
You're right, Wanda, it is Marcella... I guess being seen like that is not really the same as speaking on camera though.
Hi Wanda, Marcella is camera-shy, and Adelle was not on the shoot – they are both integral parts of the team though. Actually I think you can tell from the interview that everyone is essential, and the way they work together so seamlessly is one of the most impressive things about their set-up. And the minute you meet them, you can see how much they genuinely like and respect each other. They're a lot of fun to be around.
I think the main issue with interviewing them in Czech would have been that I don't speak Czech... (except for one phrase, Marcella taught me how to say "kiss my ass" and told me it meant "thank you"!). We did discuss what was the best way to do the interview, and decided to go with English, as you can tell they are used to speaking English and are pretty confident. But I do take your point, and hope to someday interview Andrej in Czech about his creative process because I would love to learn more.
I'm pretty sure there are better techniques than that :-)
I agree Wanda Lust! She's our special Rose. Thank you Rose for being our liaison to these lovely models. I'm so happy that Tracy received and appreciated the well wishes. :-)

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015 on Men who like porn respect women more: the facts!
The 'upcoming releases' list doesn't necessarily show everything that's coming, Wanda – it changes as the design and content team add movies ready to go live... so there will always be surprises in store :-)
I guess I've got a lot more faith in the state of academia than you, which is fine. We all have our own experiences don't we...
I for my part enjoyed being taught by some amazing instructors ~ professors, lecturers, and grad students.
They were all almost excruciatingly aware of the scientific method and the necessity to back up their claims with evidence and I never felt that any of them (well, OK, maybe one or two over the space of eight years, which really ain't bad if you think of it) were excessively into their own egos or took themselves too seriously to be trustworthy or to be trusted when they cited something as theoretical or likely or true.
It was actually comical the way some of them went out of their way to separate speculation from proven fact and also to stress to their students how very difficult it is to get from point a: stating a hypothesis to point b: being reasonably certain that one can state that hypothesis, having been peer-tested and vetted fully, as fact.
Contrasting that with the way most of us everyday state our ideas on FB (for example) with zero attempt at either citing sources or backing our assertions with even elementary research ~ I am actually quite confident in the state of academia today, regarding its relation to the scientific method and responsible citation of facts vs. speculation. (:
It's the people who manifestly display open distrust of academia and don't even know what the scientific method is who scare me ~ and unfortunately, those people are currently in charge of setting policy for us...
Saturday, December 5th, 2015 on Erotica versus Porn: Which do you support? Part 1
Wow, great point, Wanda! Thanks for letting me know that the law of unintended consequences goes far beyond Political Science in academia! I feel good knowing that. (: It makes total sense to me that engineers would HAVE to be intimately familiar with the concept and be extremely careful in what they do precisely for that reason.
And I agree that there is a lot of jumping to conclusions nowadays based on correlations (at best) and anecdotal evidence (at worst). Doesn't everyone know an uncle who had a friend whose brother in law talked to.... etc. etc. ? (:
In my experience it is actually well educated people ~ products of the academy if you wish ~ (: who are either likely to guard against these logical fallacies (and indeed, know what a logical fallacy is in the first place) or at least be willing to play by the rules if gently corrected... (;
Yes! I totally agree. Verbal communication is a form of mutual respect, IMO. And true mutual communication is a demonstration of spontaneity and genuineness within the sex act as depicted in true erotica, vs. the pre -programmed and planned out nature of porn.
This very issue has been one of my continuing frustrations recently over on VivThomas... they've gotten a lot right, but have not managed to bring communication within the act itself (vs. just during the prologue) into play successfully yet. And that is an issue here at SA as well, IMO.
I think that's a very interesting point, Wanda. One of the things I love about SexArt movies is that they are grounded in the 'real world' and reflect real human relationships (not that I don't enjoy the occasional crazy flight of fantasy, but it's nice to see couples I can relate to). And dialogue is obviously a huge part of that, and something all of us here would like to see more of. One difficulty lies in the fact that we have models, production teams and members from all around the globe, speaking many different languages. But it's not an insurmountable problem, and I wouldn't want it to change – I love the cosmopolitan flavor of SexArt! I think we have seen an increase in real, relatable dialogue in our movies lately (and check out Alis Locanta's new work coming to Viv Thomas for some really excellent examples) but I enjoy it most when the verbal communication continues throughout the film. As you say, it makes us believe in the authenticity of the relationship between the performers. Some of the best movies here are great for exactly that reason.
As far as I know there is no sequel at this point, Wanda... but that doesn't mean there won't be in the future :-)
That's a fair point, Wanda... the girls often like to be described as 'models' as it's a word that implies beauty and glamour... 'performers' or 'actresses' might be more accurate, but then acting implies fake, and what they do is much more real than that. In the US they are referred to as the 'talent,' which is nice but again doesn't really indicate the extent to which they open up their real selves to us. Or there's 'porn star'... ugh! I call them 'girls,' but then I've been reminded that they should properly be referred to as 'women.' I don't think there is a perfect word for them yet!

Beautifully said. There is something blindingly hot about older women in erotic scenes. As fascinated as I am by young women, my state of arousal goes into overdrive when a video stars an older women. I offer as two examples Lisa and Jo, two stars who appeared in the wonderful works of Viv Thomas. Lisa has apparently left the business and Jo now has her own website and both did nothing but grow hotter as they grew older.

Yep, exactly, Wanda, thanks!

Wanda, I totally see your point but I didn't feel there was anything missing because the interaction between them DURING the photo shoot established/explained their entire relationship, IMO.
In my imagination, it's possible that they DID make a midpoint stop after the shoot at a pub or a restaurant for a romantic lunch and some wine... but it's also possible that the passion they felt during the photoshoot was so strong and so urgent that they immediately rushed back to the nearest hotel room to consummate their feelings.
It's up to us the viewers to supply the "missing link" in our imaginations ~ if we feel one is needed ~ and I don't think one is actually needed.
Wanda, you just said my own thoughts perfectly, I've nothing to add except that ~ for some reason, even though actual anal action doesn't do anything for me, rimming does strike me as erotic. I've been thinking about it awhile and I still can't figure that one out. : P It is what it is, I guess.
I've witnessed the anal experiment over on VT that Rose refers to, and I think the only thing that doesn't work with it for me is that it seems to be more the mechanical "let's add anal" because so many members asked for it. The director still hasn't figured out how to work it in so that it looks like a natural extension of the lovemaking. I think that that's the key ~ as you say, turning the models loose so that the ones who DO enjoy it CAN. Not telling them "you have to" OR "stay away from that."

Good points, Wanda...
It's just that... for so long, I and several other members (and I was not the first) have been harping on the issue of dialogue in these scenes. Even after more than a year of this being a frequent and persistent topic of discussion here on this forum, we see so few scenes with genuinely believable, easy, effortless, spontaneous seeming dialogue between the participants that CONTINUES from the intro through the entire sex scene.
And then, we get not one but two amazing scenes in a row, in terms of the ease and comfort and spontaneity of dialogue throughout the scene, in this scene and in Stalkers scene two...
And the scenes are visually almost completely ruined by the voyeuristic aspects! It's frustrating! Lupin took two beautiful scenes ~ and then defaced them! I'd LOVE to see the "raw" versions of these two scenes MINUS the unnecessary "voyeuristic" elements.
Ha ha! And there are so many other models who've said in Rose's interviews that Matt is their favorite male performer... ( :
I really like that idea! I will give it some thought and see what I can do...
Yes! Yes yes yes!!! Wanda, you've just put into words something that I've felt but not known how to express. I really hope everyone will read this comment – other members, the artists, and the performers. This is what SexArt strives for.
I think you hit the nail on the head with this comment, Wanda! One of the things I love about the boy-girl movies at SexArt is that the men are not cast in stupid macho roles. They are allowed to express real emotions – not just lust, but an emotional connection with their partner. It's something you see in mainstream movies, but hardly ever in erotica, and it's something I really value.
Wanda, you absolutely hit the nail on the head with Amarna. I think she is one of those special girls who is totally in touch with herself – physically, spiritually and intellectually – and is so confident in her own sexuality that she feels quite comfortable and uninhibited about sharing it. Often when I ask a model what they like about filming, the first thing they will say is that they love dressing up and getting into character. But when I probe a little deeper, they will also say that it makes them feel sexy, that they enjoy being admired and being the object of the camera's sexual gaze, which represents the audience.

It is, Wanda! And, good as this introduction is, the storyline really ramps up on the next episode... it's very compelling stuff! :-)
Hi Wanda, it seems to be working fine now, please contact the customer care team at support.metart.com if you are still having problems and they will be happy to help :-)

I agree; I despise the anal and mistreatment of the young women!

I would kill someone to shoot with Elle Alexandra! Just saying :P
Thursday, June 4th, 2015 on Horizont II
I totally agree, Wanda... the movies and photosets here are a collaboration between the artists and models, and I think that's what elevates them to a level of 'artistic erotica' rather than just 'porn.' The guiding principle is that everyone comes away from the experience feeling proud of what they have created, and having had a good time.
Hi Wanda! I googled it too, with slightly better luck. ( : Lanzarote turns out to be the Easternmost of the Canary Islands, off the West coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. ( : Unless I misunderstood, it is a possession of Spain.
We could add Terry Sullivan to the redheads. After her scorching turns with Matt Ice and Gabi de Castello in Snow Fun I was looking forward to seeing her in more movies, but she hasn't been back.
Had to look up 'chamuscado,' Wanda, so thanks for teaching me a new word! And... totally agree! That's what you get for looking at two fiery redheads having red hot sex in the blazing sun! :-)
I'm thinking it might be some issue with the Mozilla code WL.
I use SeaMonkey, but when I switched to Chrome had no issue.

Just jumping in to agree 100% with Wanda! Dialog makes so much difference, whether there's translation/closed captions, or not!
Thursday, May 14th, 2015 on How many stars can you name?
That would be interesting :-)
Great suggestions, Wanda - I think pairing Gina with Uma would be seriously explosive! I'd love to see that!
That's a really interesting analysis, Wanda Lust, and I agree that the power relationship is extremely important to make a threesome pleasurable to watch. For me, Gina was the key to this whole scene. Her energy and personality really carried the action. I'd love to see her paired with another girl who is equally energetic - I think it would be pretty explosive!
Threeways are notoriously difficult to shoot - arms and legs everywhere - and I think the team did a great job of making the action flow and not seem awkward. I really hope they shoot some more soon! There was definitely potential to develop more of a story here, and that's something I'd enjoy seeing.
Very well said, Wanda, thank you! I have been hard put to explain why being involved in the comments community is so important to me... you just expressed it totally, in one paragraph!
Todo un placer, Wanda :) Me encanta saber que hay gente que realmente disfruta de lo que hago. Espero seguir mucho tiempo por aquí, trabajando con Alis y grabando videos como este ^_^ ¡gracias de nuevo!

Thanks Wanda!!! What makes me so happy is that I exactly wanted to get those feelings in this film: my main idea was "intimacy" and I think my two wonderful performers did a great job!!
I appreciate your last paragraph Wanda, but I feel secure in predicting that we'll never see THAT kind of dialog here on SA, at least, not until they deliberately spoof the old tried 'n true porn cliches, the way they deliberately did several times on VivThomas.com. ( : Then, it will be strictly for laughs, and it will be painfully apparent. ( :
I really like your reminiscence about your favorite erotic movie, that definitely sounds fun. If one is the loneliest number, then 69 must certainly be the opposite of one.... :D
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.
¡Hola Wanda! Muchisimas gracias por tu mensaje :) Tu español es perfecto y me hace mucha ilusión que me escribas. Para mi es un placer poder tener la oportuniad de rodar con SexArt ¡Espero poder estar mucho tiempo por aquí!
Un beso grande,

Gotta agree. They debuted this beta interface on Erotic Beauty the other week and I'm still not used to it. I prefer the old one for SA.

Don't worry about your screen name :) If you wanted to be called Princess Leia or Indiana Jones... actually, I might be a little hesitant, because they are awesome! But you get the point. Just let us know what you would like to be referred to as :)
SE is it's very early days was really gorgeous. Jackie, Rene, Jo, Daniela and others were true lesbian lovers, and based on the feel of the early films I would suggest they were shot by Andrej or Viv. Unfortunately it's quality markedly declined and I no longer wished to be a member. Sorry SE.
Thanks for providing such a long and valuable post by the way. You gave awesome insight. Most, if not all, of which I agree with :) Keep the posts coming. The more feedback we provide, hopefully the more SexArt will grow.

I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments Wanda.
I consider myself really fortunate, in the sense that my experience with Erotic Art began and has been limited for the most part, to the MetNetwork and SapphicErotica (though no longer the latter). These sites have always put their girls first, and have always strived to actively encompass and satisfy the female market; that is something I adore and respect. Very occasionally do I look anywhere else, simply because I don’t want or even need to.
With the likes of yourself, Rose, Issy, our other female commentators and hopefully more that will follow; I hope we can push the SexArt teams to continue to strive for Erotic Film that females (and couples) can most importantly feel comfortable and empowered watching, and also enjoy from a filmic and erotic aspect too. And hopefully… we can create a wonderful community to support that :) Between everyone here, and especially our regular male commentators, I think we are doing a pretty great job.
Thank you :) It's so nice to read these words Wanda.
