This is where I have been focusing for the past whiles… I haven’t felt this excited about pornography since, well, I can’t really remember. Anyways, it’s really fucking good and you should look at it. Like, now.
A Sensate Films and Feck collaboration: Gentleman Handling.
“What we’ve made here, really, is a lovely place to watch moving images of male masturbation. GentlemanHandling attempts to strip the image of male sexual pleasure from its less-than-savoury pornographic contexts and situate it in a style of imagemaking that is honest, attentive, and reverent. In our years of experience in the pornosphere, we’ve found that men have just as much to lose as other genders from the dishonesty and superficiality of mass-produced sexual imagery. So we’ve taken up the project of presenting our contributors in a manner that highlights their human-ness, their individual sexual style. Self-pleasure is a deeply personal thing and is often glossed over or neglected in mainstream sexual media. We’re trying to take steps to change that.”
So this site, booking of shoots, people managing, learning new production/set-up/lighting skills and on occasion creatively collaborating has been a part of my world/job/life for many months now. I have been sitting on the knowledge that this beautiful space would hopefully soon, or rather eventually, come to fruition and here it is. I nearly burst at the seams keeping this secret, that’s for sure.
In super awesome and exciting news, I am also a regular contributor on the Gentleman Handling blog: Hyperballad’s Tangenitals. Please go say hi sometime, I’d very much appreciate it.
I am working with two totally amazing women on GMH, together they came up with the concept of this project and made it happen. They have formed their own company Sensate Films and will continue making Slow Porn til the end of days and sexy-times. What is Slow Porn, you ask?
“The mass-production mentality of the adult industry draws producers into its ‘more, faster!’ mindset and mode of production. This often sacrifices both the quality of the product and the experience of its creation. Our response to this is to slow down. This gives us the time and presence to pay attention to those details that the mainstream so often misses; the quality of a breath, the words in a whisper. It gives our contributors the time to make choices about their representation, and also to take their time, to indulge themselves, to respond to the process of being documented.”
I love the awesome ladies I work for/with, I love the GMH site, I love the gorgeous men we work with and I love the amazing revelations this project continues to uncover in regards to masculinity and male sexuality for me. Every day, every shoot and every contributor holds something new to be learnt.
So for the love of the mans, go have a look at this space and if you like what you see, please join and support the continuation of the smart and sexy porno contained there-in.
Pictured are the amazing ladies from the Pleasure Salon I wrote about attending a few posts further down this page.
It is absolutely incredible that this article was posted on the FRONT PAGE of The Age newspaper – a positive, informative and balanced piece about sex positivity, feminist pornography and holy fucking Babs, in the context of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
This gives me so much hope that we *can* become a far more sexually progressive and forward thinking society.
Also, my works websites are listed right there in the article! Craziness!
So, this weekend I turned 26. I had some pretty spectacular sex in some epic luxury accomodation with a spa (hells yeah), but that’s a story for another post.
Just really want to record this time as a definitely peak in my life insofar.
I also recieved this book Pretending things are a cock
Life is blissful. I’m in love with an amazing man and have a freaking awesome relationship that I feel will stand the test of time, my circle of friends as always bring me so much joy and laughs, I’m planning travel for this year, my personal projects are going well, work is well… work, but I’m certain it will get better.
My cup runneth over.
Wowsers, I have been having LOTS of sex.
I will use this as a convenient excuse for not writing anything here in an age. Although seriously, so sorry for being such an uber slacker.
Anywho, this whole boxes-of-10 condoms thing (non-latex ones come in boxes of 10) means I can actually very easily tally my sex-usage on a monthly basis. I’m finding it very cool to be able to ‘run stats’ on this sort of this for, quite possibly, the first time in my life. Having been on an oral contraceptive since I first started menstruating (at like barely 12 years old) I guess I’ve almost felt disengaged or distanced from my cycle and the way my body works.
I have now been off the contraceptive pill since the week before Christmas and I feel great. My constant battle with fatigue has eased, my libido has increased back to what it used to be and doesn’t suddenly plummit into nothingness anymore either. I haven’t lost any weight, but hey, I haven’t been trying so that’s next on the list to address and see if any changes have occured. My body feels as though it is working much better although the journey to my first period was perilous, PMTing like a mofo for 3 weeks solid, I think it is going to take a while to right itself… I’ve been on this medicine the last 13 years with only one 3 month break about 3 years ago.
There’s also this feeling of no longer being foggy. It’s difficult to describe or articulate fully, but basically I feel as though a bit of a mental veil has lifted. I’m feeling sharp and it’s great.
As each of my cycles progress I am going to see how I go. In having never been off a hormone longer than 3 months in my entire menstrual history I just have to play this entire process by ear. If my endometriosis symptoms return I will have to start up on a hormone again straight away, although over the past year all the nastiness seems to have eased quite a bit or is at least managable. (have I written about orgasm-therapy yet..? That’s a topic for another post methinks) The shitty endo symptoms are yet another reason to try to lose some weight also.
My aim right now is to try to get through to late 2011, hopefully the whole year, without taking any hormones or medically altering my cycle, if you will. Although failing that I’m giving myself a minimum 3 full cycle break (so 4 actual periods). I’m still researching the nuva-ring, but upon returning to hormonal contraception I’m pretty sure this is what I will be going with. If you have had any experience with this please comment and tell me about it
(Implanonon or the 3 month injections scare the shit out of me, too much anecdotal evidence this stuff either agrees with you or REALLY doesn’t)
So, yeah, receiving the news a combination of the oral pill and migraines puts you at risk of a stroke or DVT really was a major shock to the system, I didn’t know how I would go being off the pill and I also liked the convenience of being able to plot the where/when of menstruating. I have to say at the moment I’m not in love with condoms, but neither of us is ready to make a little person (or willing to risk it) and insofar we have been very responsible with contraception. It’s actually very nearly become part of our sexiness.
So yeah, I guess when I think about it, condoms are pretty sexy because they herald the onset on guilt and worry free sex. Feeling good about the sexy you’re having without worry means you will relax and enjoy yourself more.
NTS – tell this^ to my kid when they grow up!
The increase in my libido has meant I feel like sex a whole lot more, I’m also wanking a shiteload more too. It’s awesome to feel like a relatively balanced sexual being once more.
3 cheers for sexy-sex!
