In January we gave you a glimpse into the erotic minds of the FlyDuo. For our second installment, we introduce you to ‘Cinematic Elegance’ – the first in a series of curated playlists featuring some of our favorite erotic films.

The films in this playlist represent a visual and auditory feast for the senses and are personally some of the best cinematic erotic films we’ve experienced. It should come as no surprise that we found nearly all of them on XConfessions by Erika Lust.

We’ve decided to share what many consider to be deeply personal in the hope that it inspires others to honor, and acknowledge the deepest parts of themselves – without shame. We truly believe the only way to normalize sexuality as an important aspect of our humanity is to talk openly about it.

In addition, the creators of these films deserve love; the performers deserve praise. If we wish to see more beautiful, ethical, and sensuous films like these and less bullshit, we have to make some noise for the people working so hard to get it right, we have to be just as loud as the other “guys” – this is us manifesting more of what we’d like to see in the world of erotica. We hope you enjoy it!

1. FANTASY HOTEL: The Gardener (15 mins)

Fantasy Hotel is a surreal, neon-soaked threesome fantasy about a sensual gardener who surrenders to her desires and to her love for nature. The cinematography alone is by far the best we’ve seen in this genre. Between the lighting and the almost hypnotic ambiance set by the glowing colors that envelop you from the intro all the way through till the very last frame; and the performers’ rhythmic engagements with each other – it’s memorizing, to say the least. This film is award-worthy no doubt and easily the one to beat for us.

2. All Eyez On Me (11 mins)

All Eyez On Me is to porn what V-Magazine is to fashion. It’s a non-narrative, dreamlike fantasy for women who love women, and the rest of us who do too. The film is so beautifully shot that it creates an editorial visual experience you could easily imagine gracing the pages of V-Magazine – 100% elegant, sensuous, and enchanting!

3. Dirty Laundry (17 mins)

Dirty Laundry is all about eroticism in everyday situations, the power of attraction for a complete stranger, and was definitely an early favorite of ours! If you’ve ever tried to perform a search hoping to stumble across interracial couples who seem transfixed and absolutely captivated by one another…we feel your pain. Yes, it stands shoulders above so many other films that feature a heterosexual couple in an interracial liaison, but it goes beyond that; it’s a thoughtful, well-executed, and beautifully shot short story period. Kudos to Erika Lust and her team. Y’all continue to set the bar.

4. Pleasure Seekers (12 mins)

It doesn’t always take two! Pleasure Seekers is an artfully filmed, edgy, and satisfying solo phone sex fantasy that comes to life with Adreena Angela in a double role. She performs as two characters on the opposite end of the line, heating each other up with dirty talk. From the same producer as All Eyez On Me, Pleasure Seekers is another sugary sweet editorial fantasy with enough edge to run the risk of givin’ you cavities if you’re not careful!

5. Take Me Through The Looking Glass (14 mins)

Take Me Through The Looking Glass is the neon-soaked, voyeuristic, and deeply erotic club scene you’ve been waiting for. Kali Sudhra goes to a strip club to masturbate while watching the male dancers. She becomes so overwhelmed by their bodies and their sexuality that she asks one of the performers to join her. It’s immersive with a hint of grit, and yet still somehow manages to conjure up some really dope retro vibes.

6. Madly in Love with My Best Friend (21 mins)

Madly in Love with My Best Friend is described as a “whimsical, sexual fantasy with an irresistible art-house vibe” and we couldn’t agree more. The scenes framed by burlesque and circus will keep you struggling to decide whether to maintain your focus on the center stage or venture towards the outliers intrigued in what’s happening just outside the peripheral. The film is a creative, almost quirky at times take on an age-old conundrum, what to do when you find yourself madly in love with your best friend. Despite their many differences, Nina (Romy Furie) finds herself fantasizing about her friend (Cara Vega). For one surreal evening, dreams and reality collide into a beautiful mess made of love, sex and desire!

7. Tinder Taxi (12 mins)

Tinder Taxi is a mood! Beyond the obvious passion, the unexpected romance depicted between two strangers hits well. How the creators were able to give us so much story and visual appeal in a 12 min scene which ultimately breaks down to car sex, is incredible.

A Brief Note: While we strive to be inclusive in everything we do, we acknowledge that we will very likely fall short at times. In this instance, as we come across films that fit the theme of a particular playlist, we will be expanding that list. If you have a recommendation for a film we might be missing, hit us up.
