Come Swim With Me

We just got back from Miami, and it’s fair to say that we had a lot of fun.  Well, you saw what Clara and I got up to on Friday over on The Art of Blowjob and Slow Motion Blowjob, of course…  There was a lot of that.  But there was also shopping, dinners, drinks, walking around to explore, spending time out on the beach and even swimming!

Mike picked up a waterproof Nikon Coolpix to take beautiful photos and videos of us swimming in the condo pool…  Please note my amazing Batman bathing suit.  Clara got a Superman one too…  We’re super heroes in our own right, I think!  It’s nice to just relax and frolic around, enjoying the lovely sun before coming back to the slightly chillier climates of Montreal.

I hope you like this little video.  It’s sweet and playful, and it even shows off some more of Mike than you’d typically see.  This trip was so much fun and really fulfilling…  You’ll see what I mean soon enough.  ;)  It was just the little pick-me-up we needed to get through the rest of the month before Montreal turns into its beautiful springtime/summertime self.

Evolution of Beautiful Porn

Miami is beautiful and it’s helping us to yet again evolve what we do…  Speaking of which, there was a Q+A question about that very thing:

Although you’ve touched on it before, I think it would be interesting for you to speak about how you’ve changed, artistically, philosophically and physically since you first dipped into porn.

From my perspective, you’ve evolved a lot between your Dolorem days and The Art of Blowjob/Slow Motion Blowjob. (I only became aware of your previous efforts in retrospect, and was intrigued to see how much your makeup and your facial expressions have changed over the years; for what it’s worth, you’ve always been beautiful, but you can’t beat the current you!)

That’s a really sweet sentiment!  I think that artistically we’ve evolved probably most of all, since you can really see different periods in the sites.  We started with a lot of photography, which was largely stark and striking.  Then we moved into videography and got our footing.  You can see the skill and the techniques develop over time.  I think we’ve played around with the different kinds of blowjobs we’ve featured and the different ways we’ve featured them.  There were periods where they were shorter, then longer…  It was an artistic choice as much as anything else.  We’ve worked with a little story telling from time to time, with establishing shots and b-roll and we’ve also tried to just show the simplicity of a blowjob from start to finish.  You can see the different cameras/numbers of cameras we’ve used and times where we’ve played with POV, handheld cameras, different DIY techniques…  I think we’re at a really great place right now visually, but I also know that we’ll continue to evolve a lot.

The philosophy has really always stayed the same.  We want to make beautiful porn that shows the kind of sexuality we genuinely feel.  We chose a niche, but it still feels very real to us and we stick to what makes us comfortable to share.  We want to show that sex and porn can be lovely, sensual, respectful and still really hot and specifically that blowjobs can be so much more than something rough or boring.  I don’t think that has changed at all since we started.  It’s a simple message and it resonates for exactly that reason.  It’s our belief and it’s the reason we started making porn at all.

As for my appearance, I always feel good.  I’ve gone through different hairstyles, my body has naturally fluctuated and I’ve played around with styles like pinup, glamorous, fresh-faced, girl next door…  They’re all a part of me, though.  Just like our artistic evolution, the looks are just different ways to play around with what already exists within us.

This is a good topic for today, because tomorrow will mark a pretty big evolution for the sites…  I can’t wait to share it with you!

Sex and Music

Here’s another Q+A Question that has been wandering around my mind lately:

I’d like to hear your thoughts on the relationship between music and sex (and sexuality in general) and how you go about finding music for the video soundtracks – you seem to have a very diverse and eclectic set of artists to choose from.

For one, I’m always so happy when people like the kinds of music we use in our videos.  They’re definitely not just slapped on there and we take the time to peruse to find what would really work for each film.  We use Jamendo, which is an amazing place to find creative commons music.

We tend to stick mostly to the soft, hypnotic side of things, but sometimes we play a bit more with trip hop/hip hop, experimental jazz and even metal for one often-requested title.  There are often lyrics that kind of fit the feeling, but instrumentals work quite nicely too when we can’t find anything that both sounds like and is textually relevant to the action.

From time to time, I’ve recorded and shared my own music, including all throughout our DVD.  Sometimes that’s the best way of all to have exactly the right music to accentuate the mood, but it’s a lot more labour-intensive.  ;)

It’s funny…  We don’t listen to music when we shoot, and we don’t often when we have sex either, because I think our intimacy is all the sensuality we need in the moment.  But, I think that music fills in that gap of intimacy perfectly when making videos.  It adds that swelling feeling, that seduction, that intensity that can never quite perfectly translate from the physical to the purely visual.  It adds an extra element of warmth somehow.  I think that’s why we see it so important to our filmmaking process.

Hopefully this link will make you giggle, all about the music people have sex to.  So, I was wondering…  What music would you/do you listen to during sex, and maybe even…  What would be on the soundtrack of our videos if you could choose?

Animusic

This is exactly the kind of weird video I like.  Sure, the concept has been around for a while, but it’s soothingly hypnotic, especially for someone like me who is so into music.  I saw Nina Hartley of all people post it the other day and it felt like a little trip down CGI memory lane.

While I do really love posting about sexuality and porn (and don’t worry, I have a whole lot of things to discuss coming down the barrel) I wanted to share something nice and relaxing today.  The music is interesting but not overwhelming, there seems to be a real rooting in the understanding of how music is made and the imagery is inventive without being jarring…  It’s peculiar, but in a lovely way.

I hope you like this little video.  I think I’ll be sticking to my guitar, flute, ukulele and piano for now, but you never know…  Maybe some day I’ll get my hands on a weird video like that.  Probably not, but you never know.  And I’d love to know if any of you recognize this kind of video and if it feels like a little memory jolt for you too!

Snow Projection

 

This is one of the loveliest ways I can think of interacting with winter.  When the snowstorm Nemo hit, one filmmaker named Brian Maffitt decided that he would play around with it in his own way by  projecting a film out his window onto the huge snowflakes falling from the sky.  He chose The Lorax, though I think Finding Nemo might have been a more appropriate and equally colourful choice.  ;)

 

As someone who has grown up around lots of snow, this is definitely one of the prettiest ways I’ve ever seen someone use it.  It’s absolutely gorgeous to see all the light reflecting and the mild sense of the shapes created from the film.  It makes me wonder what one of our more colourful blowjobs would look like against a lovely, soothing snowfall.

 

What do you think of this?  This type of video always makes me smile…  It’s innovative and it’s a way of shooting beautiful video that makes something so simple into something completely new.  I hope you enjoy this still winter moment and that you get inspired to see something in a new way, too.

Update Snag

Seductively slow blowjob

 

We hit a little snag with today’s update on The Art of Blowjob.  Because we’ve been moved from our home for the past little while due to our neighbours getting their floors varnished.  It turns out toxic fumes are bad for you!  So, having to relocate was an issue that made it difficult to get this week’s update out on time.  It’ll be up this weekend, and I know you’re going to love it, so don’t fret!

 

In the meantime, you can check out the latest update on Slow Motion Blowjob, which takes a different look at the awesome (and burny!) cumshot from our Miami vacation.  Nice and slow, just the way I like it…  Although, if our reality had been shot in slow motion, I might have had time to dodge and catch it in my mouth instead of in my eye.  ;)

 

So, thank you for your patience while we work to get it all set up, and I hope that you’ll agree that the update is worth the wait.  Once in a while, doing the tech and shooting all yourself gets the better of us…  But at least you know that we’re real people really doing what we do!  It’s like a cookie baked with love!
