What kind of sex are you filming anyway?

“In my opinion, there are two things that can absolutely not be carried to the screen: the realistic presentation of the sexual act and praying to God.”
Orson Welles

Sex can be just about getting off – a transient, cursory experience. But some of us know that it can be much more than that.

I have regularly experienced such intensity while fucking that it appears as though doors are opening to other dimensions. Where the heat generated and the bright white lights encircling me and my lover are overwhelming; as though I am travelling outside of my body into an energy field.

Now, that is hard enough to describe accurately in words, let alone trying to represent it visually. I agree that the spiritual dimensions of sex are unable to be captured literally by a lens, but I do believe authentic lovemaking can translate onto the screen. It’s palpable when lovers are genuinely connected and in the moment together.

If we are to move away from the crude and inauthentic representations of sex that have traditionally featured in mainstream porn, what kind of sex are having/filming?

What defines you?
