International Women’s Day: celebrate female sexuality

Today – March 8, 2017 – is International Women’s Day, a time when women across the globe celebrate our social, economic, cultural and political achievements, and call for gender equality. Supporting the advance of empowerment, inclusion and parity is surely a no-brainer for anyone with a conscience, male or female.

As a girl who spends her life writing, reading and watching erotica, I sometimes get asked whether being a feminist is compatible with working in the adult industry, as if the two were mutually exclusive; when in fact, I think it’s the most natural match I’ve ever encountered. In what other sphere do women freely and openly admit they love sex? That they fantasize, masturbate, chase multiple orgasms greedily? That they find erotic images and films highly arousing? Stigmatizing and slut-shaming sexually active and assertive women is still prevalent out in the real world in 2017, ridiculously old fashioned and prejudiced though it seems.

And yet, it’s a sad fact that I’ve lost female friends when I’ve revealed what I do for a living. Women judging other women for choosing to exercise their right to make their own choices about their body and their sexuality seems like a terrible double standard to me. I don’t believe I should have to be secretive about the fact that I write erotica. I’m not ashamed of it, I’m proud of it!

I find it ironic that the adult industry, often misjudged as sexist by outsiders, is actually the most level playing field I’ve experienced. There are women working at every level, from performers to stylists, writers, directors, photographers, entrepeneurs and CEOs – the only requirement to succeed is talent, and many women who start out as performers go on to enjoy very successful careers in other aspects of the industry. It’s utterly inclusive, maybe because it tends to attract open-minded, creative individuals who aren’t too interested in following other people’s rules.

As for the performers, I’ve been on shoots with brand new models, and an interesting thing happens when they step in front of the camera for the first time. As they shed their clothes, they shed their inhibitions too. They feel beautiful, sexy, confident; not just because they know they are desired, but because they fully inhabit their own sexual power.

So on International Women’s Day 2017, let’s celebrate the beautiful MetArt models who lay bare their sexuality so openly for us; the women behind the scenes who make it possible for them to do so; and the fact that we all enjoy the freedom to watch them.

The appeal of the older woman

Judging by the excitement that has greeted our current release ‘Mature Attraction,’ I’m not the only one around here who appreciates a woman with a few more miles on her clock – especially when she looks as good as our two sexy stars.

The return of Dorothy Black to Viv Thomas is a major event in itself. The sultry Hungarian honey played the pivotal role in the classic movie ‘Mums and Daughters’ back in 2008, and while ‘Mature Attraction’ isn’t a direct sequel, it does pay homage to this most iconic of Viv’s films. And if you thought Dorothy looked good back in 2008, you should see her now, the best part of a decade later! ‘Hot’ doesn’t even begin to do her justice. Her face is more beautiful than ever, her spectacular breasts are still utterly perfect (her boob job is the best argument for augmentation you’ll ever see, even if you – like me – prefer your girls all-natural) and she’s acquired even more of the sophistication and sexual confidence that makes her simply irresistible. Seeing the poise and charisma with which she seduces sweet Talia Mint in episode two of ‘Mature Attraction,’ it’s abundantly clear why she is such a superstar, at an age when most starlets have hung up their spangled panties.

The other deliciously ripened star of ‘Mature Attraction’ is Czech cougar Lena Love, making her Viv Thomas debut at the age of 33. The statuesque blonde with beautiful blue eyes and a megawatt smile partakes in some delicious role reversal in the opening episode of the movie, as she is deliberately seduced by a much younger woman. You’ll have to keep watching to see what happens when Lena decides to take control!

So just what is it that makes older women so sexually attractive? In a word, confidence. Mature women tend to be comfortable in their own skin. They are experienced and uninhibited, they know what they want and aren’t shy about asking for it, and they like to relax and have fun without needing to analyse everything. They already have their own life, so they are less likely to be looking for commitment; in short, they are the perfect companions for physical play, and have the emotional maturity to enjoy fun times and good conversation too.

I have had some very exciting and enjoyable experiences with older women; I find them less needy and clingy than younger girlfriends when I’m not in the mood for heavy relationship dramas, and sexually – wow! There’s nothing more arousing than a woman who knows exactly what she likes in bed. And like a fine wine, some women – I’m thinking Helen Mirren, Kim Basinger, and for sure Dorothy Black – just get more delectable with age.

Why strong women like bondage

This is adapted from something I originally posted on the blog of our kinky little sister site, The Life Erotic. It seems appropriate to share it with you here at Viv Thomas now, as today’s new movie, episode one of “Kinky Trip,” features some BDSM play somewhat stronger than anything we’ve seen here before – although if you’re familiar with director Alis Locanta’s work for SexArt, you’ll know exploring the dark side of passion is his forte.

The movie shows Sophia Laure and Violette Pink pushing each other’s boundaries with restraints, gags and anal penetration. It’s playful and it’s consensual… but for some it’s a step too far. And while I think few will object to seeing the girls in charge, having their wicked way with one another, I wonder how you feel about having a female ‘victim’ restrained and subjected to power games by a man – something we have shown on SexArt, and that inspires some of my erotic stories on TLE? It might even have you asking the uneasy question: Is bondage anti-feminist?

Well, it depends who you believe.

If you study the feminist literature, you’ll find a wide range of opinions. In the seventies, the prevailing view was that BDSM was a form of women-hating violence; proponents of this viewpoint suggest that women who enjoy being submissive only like it because they have been led to believe it is expected of them by sexist power structures. However, since then other theories have emerged. Some feminist writers believe that BDSM is an expression of sexual freedom, and therefore is actually an empowering act.

So here’s the thing: I consider myself a free, confident, liberated bisexual woman; and yet I do enjoy a little domination and rough play – spanking, being held down, disciplined… you know the kind of thing. It makes me feel naughty, dirty and desired. Does that make me a hypocrite, a bad feminist?

I’m no psychologist, but I suspect that because I spend all day being strong, efficient and capable, making decisions, getting things done, it’s a major aphrodisiac to surrender control to someone else. It’s a pure jolt of sexual adrenaline that doesn’t translate to any other area of my life. In other words, I find it thrilling to be told what to do in the bedroom, but you’d better not try it in the boardroom (unless you’re fucking me on the desk… that would be hot!).

BDSM, to me, is about desire. It’s about somebody knowing, very clearly, exactly what he or she wants from me. It’s about the fierce pleasure that lies in giving pleasure. It’s about trust, risk and being brave enough to relinquish control, to open oneself up to whatever comes next.

In fact, it has been argued that in BDSM play, the submissive person is the one with the power, as they actually control what happens – for example, by using a ‘safe’ word. Power games take place in a safe psychological space, where authentic desires are acknowledged, rules are observed and external pressures to behave in a certain way can be escaped.

Do we really have to reconcile our sexual self to the self we present in other areas of our life – or can we allow ourselves the freedom to experiment, to experience pleasure without limits, and without shame? Ultimately, I think defining female sexuality in terms of dominant/submissive is as limiting and stereotypical as lesbian/straight or butch/femme.

I’ll just do what turns me on.

By the way, if you enjoy a little walk on the wild side, you might enjoy some of my erotic fiction on the blog at The Life Erotic… you don’t have to be a member to read it, and I’d love to know what you think of it.

What’s Your Kink?

We like a bit of kinky play here at The Life Erotic. Nothing too serious or heavy, just a little naughty titillation to stimulate, surprise and stir the senses… they do say variety is the spice of (sex)life, right?

So, what is kinky? The dictionary definition is: ‘bizarre or deviant tastes of a sexual or erotic nature.’ I guess that’s me then, because I find the definition itself a bit of a turn-on! Of course everyone differs in what they consider ‘normal’ or ‘abnormal’; the very fact that you’re here at TLE suggests you’re a pretty open-minded individual who’s interested in the less vanilla side of sexuality. 

A kink can be a private thing – maybe something you’ve never confessed to anyone – or it can be something you share in sexual play with a partner (or several partners!). Indeed, it has been said that kinky sexual practices actually enhance the bond between like-minded partners, whereas fetishes tend to replace intimacy.

Recently we’ve started experimenting with different kinky themes and scenarios, and we’d love to know what you think so far. What have you liked best, what would you like to see more of, and what can we feature that would really float your boat? (Please keep it legal; don’t go suggesting anything that will get us – or you – into trouble!).

I’ll get the ball rolling with a few purely personal reflections of my own…

Spanking. Okay, I’ll admit it… this one’s my personal favorite! I like to see girls having their panties pulled down and getting spanked… over a desk or over the knee… with the hand or a paddle… it’s all good…!

Dressing up, or ‘cosplay’ (costume play). Of course like all naughty girls, I’m powerless to resist a man in a firefighter’s uniform. What do you like – uniforms? Lingerie? Superhero outfits? Please don’t tell me it’s plushies… I’m not judging, but it looks awfully warm in there.

Rubber, latex, masks, fetish wear: Can look very arousing stretched over an hourglass figure, don’t you think?

Panty play. Oh yes! See-through panties, frillies, white cotton panties… I love ‘em all. ‘Total Privacy’ is one of my favorite movies here, because it features some rather kinky panty-stuffing.

Toes, feet, legs, high heels. Yes, I’m right there with you on the stockings and heels thing. Nothing frames a pretty pussy better than sheer black stockings and a garter belt!

Messy fun: oil, honey, milk, chocolate… I’m going to come right out and admit I hate that stuff! Convince me I’m wrong.

Domination and submission. Now, that could be fun…! I do have a thing for very dominant, powerful women… do you?

Bondage and Shibari. This is something we’ve been exploring recently; what do you think so far?

Wet play: I think this might be a ‘love it or hate it’ one! I don’t like it when it’s crudely done, but a few TLE movies recently – ‘The Stop,’ ‘Rope Fetish’ and ‘Lost’ –have included it in a very erotic way. Pretty hot stuff!

Role playing: Secretary and sexy boss; personal trainer and gym bunny; harem girl and evil empress. Don’t get me started! Do you want to see fanciful stories here at TLE, or do you prefer to keep it real?

So what have I missed? Here’s your chance to have your say about the way TLE evolves, and get your most private fantasies indulged! Please add your comments and suggestions below… and if you’re feeling inspired to write a kinky story for TLE, you can send it to me at fanfiction@metart.com.

Why strong women like bondage

Here at the Life Erotic we’ve been taking a walk on the wild side lately, with more emphasis on the kinkier side of female sexuality. One feature of this has been some beautiful and daring bondage photosets and movies, featuring gorgeous girls in various types of restraint – chains, handcuffs, Shibari (Japanese rope bondage) and the like. And while it’s undeniably exciting – and it’s always made very clear here that the girls are in charge – it may have you asking the uneasy question: Is bondage anti-feminist?

Well, it depends who you believe.

If you study the feminist literature, you’ll find a wide range of opinions. In the seventies, the prevailing view was that BDSM was a form of women-hating violence; proponents of this viewpoint suggest that women who enjoy being submissive only like it because they have been led to believe it is expected of them by sexist power structures.

    As Rose has disclosed above Indiana is one of my favorite models ever. So just a couple of extra comments if you total it up she has appeared on sites now part of the family 143 times. A real achievement for a model who almost didn't become one. Her Bio on EA reads as follows: " I once took part in a beauty competition a friend of mine signed me up and I wasn't really enthusiastic about it when she told me but then she persuaded me saying that at least it will be a good experience. And she was damned right I can tell you but in a whole different way. It was all so appalling, so degrading. It was like a slave market or a cattle fair really. But worst of all were the kind of greasy men that were all around looking for a prey. I found it exceptionally disgusting. Anyway I suppose it has served the purpose and taught me a lesson I will never want to live with someone only because they're rich. I don't mind a man being wealthy but that's hardly enough to make me interested. I've seen too many rich types for whom you'd be sorry that's not for me I am not for sale! " This may explain why she only did Glamour level nudes. Even on none Met Sites I NEVER found her doing anything beyond that. A somewhat unique thing was done by Luca years ago with her. He got together Ariel (APF) , Lorena B, and her together with a classic VW Beetle and posted not only a photo set but also a cute movie the movie appeared first on Sep 14, 2010 and it was not until Sep 29, 2013 that the photo set ran. Talk about Met Royalty together APF being one of the most important part of the family, Model/Writer/Producer and Lorena may end up being #2 on list for 50+ and
    may reach being one of only two models who have appeared in 100+ appearances. The film may be the playful one ever posted. I join Rose in wishing her continued success in whatever career she now endeavors in.
