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?

Pale Beginnings of Spring

Gorgeous blowjob for the advent of spring

It’s March!  I know that it’s still technically winter, but at least the beginning of March always signals that spring is slowly but surely on the way.  As much as I do love winter, there are a lot of things to look forward to about its end…  For example, in exactly two weeks, I’ll be able to ride my motorbike again!  But also other lovely things like sun, cute dresses, no more big coats and boots, grass and trees and flowers…  It’s a season of rebirth, so I wanted to make a video that somehow felt like the moments just before all of those amazing changes start to take place.

Pale Beginnings of Spring was shot and one of our friend’s houses out a little drive from Montreal.  It’s gorgeous, spacious and has a lot of natural light, so they were kind enough to let us film…  The white room, the white lingerie and the white light coming in through the large windows, reflected off the (lots of) snow made for this almost suspended feeling, like when you can tell that something lovely is around the corner, but isn’t quite there yet.  That feeling is as old as time itself, and I think that experiencing it while also indulging in a really sweet blowjob feels like sharing that sensation with the one I love.

It’s always hard to capture these moments in words, but I think the video does quite an excellent job, so I hope you’ll let me know if it resonates with you in that way.  It’s official…  We’re on our way towards spring.

It’s Christmas Eve!

It’s almost here.  No matter how old I get, there’s always the lovely feeling of anticipation on Christmas eve to make me feel like a little girl again.  It’s wonderful to get to gather close together and celebrate one another.  Yes, presents are nice, and I’d never say they weren’t, but it’s really about the love around us.  And maybe a little bit the presents.  :P

I hope that you’re all getting to feel the excitement mounting too, calm but ever present.  When you wake up tomorrow, I hope you’ll all feel my gift to you: a little kiss. Muah! Bises pour la veille de Noël!  Maybe if you’re good, I’ll let you have it early!

Canadian Thanksgiving

 

I know that the vast majority of you aren’t Canadian, but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving anyways!  As a true lover of fall, I love autumnal foods and colours…  The way it gets colder and you just want to curl up with someone…  That said, we actually had a heat wave in Montreal over the weekend and it was nearly 30 degrees with the humidex on Saturday.  That’s not exactly cozy up under a blanket and drink mulled wine weather, now is it?

 

Oh well.  Regardless of the fact that it was less sweater weather, more summer dress weather, this time of year always has this special feeling for me.  It’s a feeling of warmth, and I feel like the idea of Thanksgiving is a very good representation of that feeling.

 

So, what am I thankful for this year?  Well, much like every year, I’m thankful for a lot.  I’m thankful for all the wonderful people in my life, I’m thankful for my family, I’m thankful that I have an incredible partner, I’m thankful that I have a fulfilling career and I’m thankful for all the amazing people I have met through what I do.  I’m very very grateful to have people like you in my life.   I don’t need a specific holiday to reflect on it, but in the spirit of the day, I thought I’d reiterate what I often say.  I appreciate you all so much.  Thank you.
