Emilie Jouvet: One Night Stand (2006)

Posted · Add Comment

Le premier p*rn* queer et lesbien français ‘DIY’ (‘ Do It Yourself’) de Emilie Jouvet. Le film est un champ d’exploration, un terrain de jeux multiple, un espace d’expression, une aventure romantique. Dix actrices/acteurs amateurs et amateurs de sexe réalisent leurs désirs et mettent à nu des sexualités lesbiennes et queer. Genres, jeux et pratiques se rencontrent et se mélangent dans une énergie débridée et créent un étourdissant et délectable festin de sexe, de passion et de désir.
