Gender Queer

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

We received an interesting letter from a Fatale fan who asked, “Do you have DVDs that feature sex between gender-queers and/or butch women and queeny men?”

Gender queer is an interesting term that applies to transfolk, transmen, transwomen, queers, gender-benders, FTMs, MTFs and those who just plain don’t feel wedded to one gender. The appellation is usually self-determined and liberating.

We like gender queer movies and images because they’re a reflection of who we really are as a diverse, dynamic culture. Gender queer is descriptive without pinning you down to one “thing” or another. We can all be who we are without sacrificing a cultural or group identity.

When we first saw Barbara DeGenevieve’s video footage of the queers in Chicago when she was filming Full Load, we were blown away. Here were real dykes, real transfolk, real FTMs who weren’t afraid to bare it all. That takes guts.

Then along came Carolyn, who had worked with Barbara in Chicago and was striking out on her own with Turn Me Up Over and On, an amateur short with a sweet encounter between a femme and her boi.

Shine Louise Houston doesn’t hesitate to play with gender in the Crash Pad, the Crash Pad Series Volume 1 and especially in Wild Kingdom, one of our favorite porn flicks with a hot trans scene between Wil and Papi .

As for butches and queeny men, no queeny men, but hot sexy butches abound!

Yours in good love and sex,

HBO’s Real Sex Schedule

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

HBO produced a wonderful and enlightening series called Real Sex, which they’re currently airing this month through early May. If you haven’t yet seen these in-depth looks into sex across the U.S., we urge you to check out the full HBO Real Sex schedule.

In Real Sex Xtra: Pornucopia: Goin’ Down in the Valley 03 about same-sex sex, Shar Rednour talks and demonstrates making S.I.R. Videos and how they’re so-o-o different than “girl-girl” flicks.

And Let It All Hang Out visits Take Her Down star and director Sondra Goodwin to get the skinny on all-dyke nude oil wrestling.

If you haven’t seen HBO’s Real Sex documentaries yet, do it! Also available on HBO On Demand.

Best Lesbian Flicks

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

We were delighted to see Catherine Plato’s Lesbian Life entry at this past month. You can read the whole piece here.

She selected the “Best Porn by and for Lesbians” and Fatale is there! Carolyn Caizzi’s steamy sweet vid Coming Home made the Top Ten, as did two S.I.R. titles and many other titles that are Fatale best sellers.

For Coming Home, which features four vignettes, Catherine wrote, “The first of this series of vignettes features a big, curvy butch-femme couple: the deliciously hot women we never get to see in mainstream porn.”

Why shouldn’t lesbian flicks show what we really look like? Real lesbians, with real lesbian lovemaking, allow us to see ourselves for who we really are. Okay, maybe the dykes onscreen are a little less inhibited than we are in everyday life, but that’s the great thing about who we are and what we do.

Check out the other titles mentioned in Catherine’s Lesbian Life column – Sugar High Glitter City, Annie Sprinkle’s Herstory of Porn, Hard Love and How to Fuck in High Heels and Shine Louise Houston’s excellent videos.

Yours in good love and sex,

Sex Tips & Tricks: Lovemaking in the Bath

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

It’s springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere, and we were thinking of flowers. How lovely the gardens are beginning to look, now that it’s April.

One of the most romantic women we know keeps pots of flowering plants year-round near her bathtub, an old porcelain behemoth that is deep and satisfying to just soak in alone. She hangs lace curtains in the window, which reminds us of Ireland, and keeps waterproof sex toys at hand.

Danger: Don’t bring your plug-in vibrator into the bath with you, okay? Very dangerous.

Old porcelain bathtubs held the heat of the water well. You didn’t get cold after ten minutes. But hey, we’ve got Jacuzzis and hot tubs, hot springs and even private spas now. The old ones also have straighter sides so you can sit up and play with yourself, or have your girlfriend finger your love spot until you come.

Water sometimes makes it hard to get properly lubed as quick as you would, say, on a bed. But take your time, and your natural juices will flow before you know it. You can also straddle your tub and let your girlfriend lie in the water underneath you. Very sexy indeed.

Some people prefer showers for sex, and the only thing we’re careful of while doing it in the shower is slipping and falling.  There’s a hot scene between the star oil wrestlers in Take Her Down.

Another sex-in-water sex flick we have is the classic Hungry Hearts. Pepper and Reeva have a great lovemaking scene in a sunken Japanese tub overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

So here’s the challenge: Send us your bathtub and shower sex scenes. We’ll select the best and post them on the site. If your flick is selected, we’ll call or e-mail you first, and you’ll need a model release if we use it. Just print it out and have your friends sign a copy before you shoot.

You can shoot on a camera, your cell phone or any other method that appeals to you.

And hey, if we do a new DVD, we’ll pay you for it too. See Real Lesbian Sex for more details on payment.

Q&A: Ask Fanny – Squirting Far

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

G-spot expert Deborah Sundahl, a.k.a. Fanny Fatale, answers your questions about female ejaculation and the g-spot.

Dear Fanny,
Hello, I am a squirter and was wondering, how do I increase the projection of the squirt in distance and the liquid amount of my squirts? Is there something I can do to facilitate this amazing womanly feat? I do okay now…but I want to become a super squirter and squirt even farther. What are some tricks of the trade when it comes to squirting? Please do tell…I want to know…

Dawn, via e-mail

Dear Dawn,
You increase the projection of the ejaculate arch by lying on your stomach and by having nothing in your vagina that might obstruct the flow. The stronger your PC muscles, the farther you can shoot.

The amount of ejaculation usually increases over time, as women become used to ejaculating. Letting go completely will increase the amount of ejaculate, as will continuous stimulation. However, the latter’s amount is only increased over the course of a lovemaking session, not in one single ejaculate. There is also more ejaculate after ovulation and up to menstruation.

Are your aspirations professional? “Super squirter” and “tricks of the trade” make me think you wish to appear in porn films. If that is the case, most profuse ejaculators are pretty much born that way, just like popular male porn stars are born with large members. You can attempt the suggestions above, and see what happens.

But overall, each woman’s capacity and preference for ejaculating with exuberance and skill varies, quite naturally, among individuals.

Good luck!
