About

‟I was forever wishing that all movies had longer and more explicit sex scenes!”

Stories are in the sex

In real life, you learn something about a person when you get sexually intimate with them. Maybe the power shifts between you, or maybe you open up more than you planned, or maybe you see a new side to their personality. This is one reason why some porn can feel tedious — a lot is happening, yet nothing really happens. We try to bring out the story within sex scenes because that’s both realistic and fun to watch.

Our Vision

Sex is a giant, beautiful, strange, messy, fascinating, fun and thrilling force of nature. It doesn’t usually look that way in movies. By finding creative ways to show the true thrill of good sex, we want to give people the confidence to trust their own desires and to know that not only is nothing wrong with our sexual pleasure, it’s a force for unique self-expression and for connection with the rest of humanity.

About our vision

Actors

Our actors and actresses honestly explore the psychology of characters’ sexual boundaries, whether through traditional acting exercises, experimentation during rehearsals, or by simply being brave enough to take emotional risks.

‟Spontaneous real-life chemistry between people draws us in.”
