Hot Flash Fiction Friday: How To Seduce A Shy Guy Edition

Last week, erotica author and phone sex operator Secondhand Rose was challenged to write a a short erotic story based on 4 words. The words were “shy boy” & “sleepy girl”.

For weeks now, Jen had been visiting Jeffers at his apartment. For weeks she had been subtly giving him signals that she was not only more than a friend, but oh-so available. To no avail. Every night she left for his apartment, she was hopeful; but every night she left his place oh-so frustrated! She knew he was shy – but come on already! What was a girl supposed to do?

Don’t worry, Jen has a plan. And from the looks of things, it works!

Features a horny scheming woman in a school girl outfit and tugs at some somnophilia fantasies too. Read the whole story here.

Speaking Of Crossdressing…

Since we were just talking about crossdressing, I thought I’d share a lighter side of the crossdressing fetish. One of the recent confessions at Erika Lust‘s XConfessions website (where she turns cheeky confessions into short erotic films) was from a man who said a former girlfriend liked to see him dressed up in woman’s clothing:

She put makeup on me one night. Another night I wore a wig, and another night stockings. Maybe it sounds weird, but it never bothered me. She loved the way we fucked, and if seeing me in drag made her panties that wet, who was I to object?

True to her word, Erika created the erotic film, Dude Looks Like A Lady. (This, like all the films made at XConfessions, is available as part of the membership at Lust Cinema; review here.) I sure do love seeing a cock popping out of panties!

Feminism, Sexuality & Porn: Exclusive Interview With Erika Lust Of Lust Cinema

Yes, Erika Lust has won awards for her erotic films; but perhaps it’s more important that she makes films that you want to watch. And now, she employs the same eye she uses behind the camera to find and curate other aesthetically pleasing adult films at her site Lust Cinema. We are thrilled to have her visit us here at Sex Kitten!

love and lust in sex Erika Lust by Alberto GamazoHi Erika, tell us a little bit about yourself ~ including, of course, why you started Lust Cinema.

I’m Erika Lust, age 37, born in Stockholm and living in Barcelona. I graduated from the university of Lund with a degree in Political Science (and a focus in feminism), then moved to Barcelona to learn Spanish. Early on, I found a job working for a big production house – getting coffee, picking actors up from the airport, etc – which inspired me to take classes in film directing. While studying feminism in college, I had learned from author Linda Williams that porn could be empowering to women’s sexuality, and yet I’d never seen any porn that appealed to me. Fake bodies, fake orgasms, bad lighting, bad dialog … where was I (and the sex I enjoyed) being represented in this genre??

erika lust's the good girl pizza man sexSo naturally, the first film I wanted to make was an explicit one – The Good Girl – which flipped the ‘pizza guy’ stereotype into something more feminist. After it was downloaded over 1 million times, I was inspired to start my own production company, Lust Films, in 2005 and have made 4 feature films and one ongoing erotic series since then.

In 2010, after really establishing myself in the independent and feminist porn communities, I decided to found Lust Cinema – where all the best erotica, from filmmakers with my values, could be discovered in one place. The catalog now has hundreds of films ranging from modern to vintage, tutorials to art, romance to kink, features to amateur compilations. But all these movies have one thing in common: bringing a fresh perspective to the adult industry thanks to including women’s pleasure, passion, intimacy, love and lust!

What filmmakers, studios, performers, have you been influenced by? Not just the one’s you admire, but who and what has made you feel the old, “Ick! Someone has to do better than that — I can do better than that!”

In general, I can say that I admire many of my contemporary indie porn filmmakers: Candida Royalle for pioneering the idea that women wanted x films and had a powerful voice as creators. Jennifer Lyon Bell and Murielle Scherre for showing intimacy rarely captured in explicit film. Tristan Taormino for her commitment to sex education. Ovidie for her smart comedies about sexual taboos. Anna Span for championing the female sexual point-of-view. Jacky St. James for infusing her films with modern stories and cinematography. Pierre Roshan for infusing all his video guides with unprecedented eroticism. These are just a few of the talented filmmakers that come to mind, out of many who are creating the new generation of good porn today.

Ovidie-Liberte-Sexuelle Anna-Span-Uniform-Behaviour

In terms of negatives, I have very little interest in mainstream works or production houses. I want to create something original and completely erotic, and I just don’t find athletic, violent, pleasureless sex (Nacho Vidal or Rocco Siffredi are examples I often use) inspiring in any way.

There are a lot of adult filmmakers who say they are for women; what do you think makes Lust Cinema so different?

I think what makes Lust Cinema different is the same thing that makes my own films different… I don’t try to represent all women, I don’t try to define a genre, I just pick the films that speak to me. This isn’t something that can be marketed like “porn for women”, it is actually extremely personal. Because don’t all women like different things?

All I can do is follow my vision, and it just happens that there are many others who value the same things that I do. In this way, my cinema is very different from the ‘women friendly’ category in porn tube sites. What does that even mean? Soft lighting and more cunnilingus? Were any of the films even made BY women? Unlike other films and sites, my work and Lust Cinema is not just a product to invent, label and sell – it’s a new way of seeing erotica and sex. And that is something that stays with you … even after you (and your partner) orgasm.

List 5 characteristics that you think are most necessary for erotic films for women.

In my opinion …

1) Women’s pleasure. This has a million different looks and outlets, but most people know the difference between someone who is enjoying themselves, and someone who is bored and just putting on a show by screaming.

2) Cinematography. Even before I studied filmmaking, things like bad lighting, weird angles, gray colors, grainy picture, horrible costumes, awful sets and weird items in the background used to distract me to the point where I wouldn’t be interested in the sex at all. Really high-quality adult movies can be made (and have been!) with an iPhone … so there is just no excuse now.

3) Originality. This means NO MORE stereotypes, NO MORE formulas. I don’t want to see any more teachers & schoolgirls, pimps & whores, executives & casting couches. I am bored with the formula blowjob-sex-anal (cunnilingus if you’re are lucky) with dirty talk and rough behavior and facials as the norm. Let’s try something new, okay?

xxxconfessions erika lust films

4) Sensuality. Kissing would be nice, some build up, foreplay. Close up shots of erogenous zones (not just genitals): like sucking an earlobe, gripping a buttock, brushing the spine, kissing the neck. I’m a holistic creature and sex isn’t just about the genitals to me.

5) Relatability. Who are these women I see in mainstream films? Because they don’t look like me or anyone I know. And the men? They are not the men I swoon over in the street, and definitely not the ones I would date. And what are they doing? She is wearing heels to bed and screaming her head off as he (well we can only see him from the waist down) thrusts like an Olympic athlete and calls her names. This is not the way I have sex and this isn’t my fantasy either. Show me guys and girls who look like my neighbors and baristas making out and fumbling with buttons. Show me the passion and vitality that happens in our private lives and sex, but never in the porno we watch.

The success of 50 Shades of Grey has ignited the old discussions about women and submission, rape fantasies and feminism, and the like. I’m pretty sure you’ll find it as ridiculous and offensive as I do, but what are your thoughts on female fantasies that involve BDSM or rough sex? Have you any comments or insight from your site members?

Like you, I think the idea that what a woman does to get off dictates or contradicts her identity as a feminist is ridiculous.

interracial black male dominant submissive female

Based solely on xconfessions.com submissions, I would have to agree that it BDSM fantasies are pretty widespread among women. I wouldn’t say by any means it is the most prevalent on the site, and not one shared by men and women equally (female submission/male domination that is). It is a taboo topic, only recently made a little more mainstream, and taboo is always going to fuel fantasies.

I see the apparent rise similar to the explosion of vibrator popularity after Sex in the City … it’s not that vibrators didn’t exist or women didn’t use them before, just that people weren’t as keen to talk about it. In this way, though I really am not a fan of either Sex in the City or 50 Shades, it’s great when pop culture stimulates honest and open conversation about women’s sexuality because that can only further attitudes of embracing it.

erika lust behind the cameraAs a former escort, I consider adult film-making and performing to be forms of sex work. I know there are (partially legal) reasons for some to wish to create distinctions, but do you consider yourself a sex worker? Have you any thoughts on the rights of sex workers?

I think I consider myself more of a filmmaker than a sex worker, though performers more often identify that way. Either way, I certainly work within the sex industry. My own liberal personal belief is that sex work should be recognized as legitimate work (not simply the decriminalization of an exploited person) and given a legal framework to protect their health, livelihood and finances.

Many female filmmakers and fine porn producers have left the marketplace, leaving many to say women aren’t interested in porn. What do you say to them?

I think for as many who have left, there is an even greater amount joining the industry. This is thanks in part to the internet, which allows many women to realize their unique visions even though they may not have had the opportunity (or desire) to be backed by a large production company.

In addition, there is actually a huge rise in women as consumers of porn – or at least more women reporting their consumption. All in all, it is definitely part of a growing sector of the industry – one that will change the old, stereotyped face of porn for the better!

We sure hope so!

Should you, dear reader, need any more incentive to visit Lust Cinema, check out this trailer for Erika Lust’s Five Hot Stories for Her:

Lip-Biting Lust

Erika Lust released her first pornographic film, The Good Girl, for free on the internet in 2004 ~ in just a few months it was downloaded over 2 million times going on to win Best Short Film at the International Erotic Film Festival in 2005. Since then, she’s formed Erika Lust Films and several of her erotic works have earned Movie of The Year at the Feminist Porn Awards. And now Erika has her own online movie theatre, Lust Cinema, where she shows not only her own films but the cinematic carnal delights of others. Yes, one place to get all the lusty lip-biting erotica you need.

lip biting good sex

You can call the films at Lust Cinema “indie porn”, because it’s not from those big generic porn production companies. You can call it “alternative porn” ~ but it’s not necessarily full of tattooed and pierced Suicide Girls. You can call it “porn for women”, but only if you take that expression to mean it’s hot enough for any gender. You can call it “erotica for couples”, so long as you still know it’s hardcore porn. There are a lot of words you can use to describe the adult films at Lust Cinema… honest, fresh, innovative, intimate, classy, modern, beautiful… However, Erika (I think I can say this for her) and I would prefer the term “best porn” because that’s what it really is.

lust cinema hands on junk

If you think “best” is too subjective (and I can’t really argue with you there), then let’s go with “sensual adult films”. Yeah, a lot of people use the word “sensual” to describe their erotic & porn works ~ and we all know that at least two-thirds of them don’t know what the word means. Sensuality is about arousing and gratifying the senses ~ all of the senses. And Lust Cinema films hit all the senses. Well, maybe not scent… Smell-o-vision was a flop, after all. But everything else is as lush and pleasing as it can be.

At Lust Cinema, you get everything from great music and gorgeous sets (complete with proper lighting for the film’s mood) to clothing and lingerie that real people wear (or wish they could wear!). Oh, yeah, there are plenty of naked folks doing dirty deeds too. It’s like combining the best of softcore ambiance with the best of hardcore action.

Lust Cinema offers films you (and your partner, should they be so lucky as to watch with you) will enjoy ~ both in the moment, and later on, as they linger in your mind… stirring & rousing you… Making you bit your lip again just thinking about it!

Sexism Takes The Sexy Out Of Cosplay

See on Scoop.itLet’s Get Sex Positive

This affects things like cosplay too. Some say that the mainstreaming of cosplay has created a sexist and hypersexualized aura surrounding the hobby. They say that “surge of ‘fake geek girls’” who are “pretty and wearing something revealing” are quickly “labeled cosplay ‘celebrities’ and are featured on dozens of websites” as authorities to the detriment of other costumers and hobbiests. In other words, the media packaging of traditional beauty standards have gotten in the way of the fun for everyone in cosplay.

Hot HiDef Porn For Couples

Call this couple’s porn, or call it erotica full of coupling; but whatever you call it, it’s hot!

At Passion-HD the slogan is “We Shoot the Hottest Girls with the Best Cameras” ~ and that’s likely true because the photographs and video are gorgeous. The images are clear and crisp without detracting from the action. For example, you can almost feel the scratch of this guy’s stubble on Madison Ivy‘s breast.

And, unlike so much of the amateur porn, the sets are simple and elegant enough to set a mood without distracting or being annoying. Maybe it’s a woman-thing, but I so dislike being made dizzy with loud wallpaper patterns or wondering why no one bothered to vacuum a floor before the dude with the camera came over. Gross. Distracting. So not sexy. But at Passion HD, the focus of the camera ~ and the viewer ~ remains on the sexy action.

But ultimately we sex kittens want to know, “What about the guys?”

Let me tell you ladies, the guys are worth it.

Beauties like Mandi Armani, Alison Star, and others get the undivided attentions of unnamed men with rock hard abs and cocks.

Not only are the guys sexy fantasy guys, but these men look more like skilled lovers than lazy-fuckers who are only in it to bust their own nuts. That’s what makes them fantasy men, right? *wink*

Passion HD may think the “HD” is for high definition porn; but I think it’s for Hot Damn!

Passion HD is updated five to seven times per week, giving you more bang for your buck ~ making it less expensive to masturbate solo or get in the mood for a fuck.

Don’t kid yourselves; that’s what erotica and porn is for.

Erotic Nude Photography Site Met-Art.com: The Exclusive Interview

Model In White Lace Socks, Met-Art Photo

Met-Art, a nude art photography site, has been around for more than a decade. Founded in 1998, it’s even older than Sex~Kitten.Net! Given the number of sites which have folded in all these years (a great number of them who benefited as media darlings but never did live up to the hype), I decided it was time to check in with MetArt. In a short chat with Mike, I rediscovered this contemporary but classic art nude website, which continues to win awards, such as Xbiz’s Solo Girl Site of the year.

Hi Mike, in a world that struggles to identify art from erotica, porn, etc., how do you see the works of MetArt?

Our work is “erotic nude art” and is meant to arouse the viewer by celebrating the female body as captured in artistic, creative ways. We don’t like to use the word “porn” to describe our work. There is a difference between the two, and although that defining line may be subjective, it’s fairly clear overall. To me, pornography is a base showing of something sexual, without much room for interpretation. Erotic art is more about setting a tone, framing a scene, capturing a moment.

We strive to present the nude female body in a flattering and respectable way. Our models aren’t allowed to touch themselves, and many of the shots feature fully-clothed girls. So it’s not just about drooling over hot naked babes. There’s a heavy emphasis placed on the photographer’s role as well, and you’ll notice a variety of different settings and styles in the sets. You will not find any pig-tailed teens spread eagle on a bed full of teddy bears on our site. In short, I think we try to bring an elevated level of admiration to the models rather than portraying them as a piece of meat to be tenderized.

Erotic Nude Ballerina At MetArt

I see MetArt as comparable to the vintage art nude magazines. (Even then, they knew that most folks weren’t drawing — and that taking their own photos of nudes was a dream! lol) Does that seem about right to you?

 

Sure. I think it’s safe to say that our work evolved from early pinups, nude art, and so on. In those days, it seemed like the women were valued for their facial expressions, style, and personality as their overall bodies. They were also filled with “real” women, who differ slightly from today’s pornstars. We try to capture a range of looks and ages, with a focus on natural beauty at all times. It doesn’t matter if the model is 18 or 28, as long as they have the right stuff. That is, that they’re beautiful, comfortable in front of the camera and can produce a certain radiance through their pictures. Also, we have worked with some of the very best photographers in the business – Erro, Goncharov, Hegre, Helios, to name a few – and they do a great job staging the photos in ways that elevate them beyond a simple point and shoot session.

Because the nude photography is so beautiful, inviting, I have the impression that you have quite a high percentage of female followers… Is that true?

I don’t know the actual numbers, but I would venture to say that we have a solid female fanbase. It seems that women appreciate each others bodies a bit more than men, especially when shown in refined ways. Of course there are always lesbian fans, who must love our work as much as their male counterparts. I notice that we often attract new “likes” from women on our Facebook page too, so there’s definitely an audience regardless of gender.

MetArt Nude On Motorcycle

On MetArt’s About page, it reads, “Our goal for the future is to continue to attract collaboration, enhance user experience and participation.” How is that done? Can members send in suggestions for model shoots, etc?

We are always looking for new ways to engage our visitors, and offer them something more.

Last year we launched a blog that’s updated daily with an insightful look at any one of our models, and there’s a heavily engaged readership that always offers great comments and dialogue. We actively engage our Twitter and Facebook pages, and respond to any comments or suggestions that people may have.  We make a point to continually develop the site so that it’s easier to navigate and customize the experience for the individual member. So there’s always a focus on the end-user, because they ultimately drive the success of our site.  Anyone is welcome to send in photos for publishing, although we have pretty rigorous standards to meet.

We’re lucky to have such an engaging audience that’s also receptive to new offerings. Our webcam site, for example, has been a big hit. It features some of our models and allows fans a chance to chat and interact with their favorite girls.  As we move forward, we’ll continue to listen to our audience and offer them more options.

And there you have it, folks; Met-Art has survived thrived all these years because they focus on great nude photographs of pretty women and turning site members into fans.
