“SEX, Intimacy, Love.

So personal, individual and nuanced, and universal, collective, unified in concept and experience. 

Sex with ourselves. With another. With others.

At the heart, the depth, the core, what is the essence of Sex? I wondered – we all wonder.

What is stirred, awakened, evoked, witnessed in the feeling of Sex? I explored – we all explore.

When it is shared, communicated, given, received, how do we know the truth of Sex? I desire – we all desire.

Sex is discovered in the purity of the moments succumbed to the Connection. 

Slow, pulsating, creeping, blooming, exploding, rapid, flowing, infusing, emerging, revealing.

Through our breath and touch, movement and sound, through skin and eyes. Engaged, immersed, present. All at once emotional, physical, energetic, sensational, stimulating. 

In Sex, Intimacy and Love we may do different things with our bodies, or not. Say different words, or not. Feel different things, or not. 

Sex, Intimacy, Love may be the same, and they may not. 

Does changing the title screen and the music, the exact scenes and players, create something new or do they all hold the same resonance? 

When we allow the connection to deeply touch, truly move, organically inspire – the willingness to surrender ourselves to open.”

SEX is one part of a three film series spanning Sex, Love and Intimacy. Made entirely from freely available stock video and royalty free music, the creation of this film revealed more about the essence that evoked from the connection we experience with ourselves and with others, vs the assumed physical actions we do or what we call it when we feel it.
