If I ignored the urge to not explain anything what would I say? I suppose I would recoil into fact and say I hired these women to pose for me. I posted an ad on Craigslist, “Female photographer looking for nude females to be photographed. 40 euros an hour.” We met and I explained that I wanted to film them masturbating – they all agreed. If things go well the photos will be well received, and all of us will have gained as well as lost something in the process.
I was only turned on by a seductive piece of soft-core a friend sent me, very well made, great music in fact, and I hoped to do the same. The following images come from the women I hired. They gave me the permission to use those; some are unsolicited photographs they sent me – pictures they made of themselves or had made – while others are pictures I made of them.
