Comments by Erika Lust

I was utterly, completely inspired by this confession, and I found my own quote from Anaïs that speaks very deeply to me: "I love the abstract, delicate, profound, vague, voluptuously wordless sensation of living ecstatically." Julia and Sylvan have the most incredible chemistry as performers who are also friends - both so gorgeous, so full of life and vitality. I hope this film uplifts and awakens you, in the same way it did for me when I made it.

This is a poem that awoke something in me. Maybe it was sexual, maybe it was something deeper. I thought I would share. It is called "Some Never Awaken" by Anaïs Nin.

"You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book... or you take a trip... and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken."

See this lovely video of the full poem below, and perhaps you will awaken!

    Oh, this is special to come across.
    ... I woke up a year ago. My shock treatment was a sexual encounter. I used to think I don't know what I like, specifically in sex. But, this one time suddenly I got all I wanted without even thinking about it. There was no return. It turned my life upside down... but I know and I feel it, I am wild and alive now.
    Thanks for sharing this!

      Would you want to share what woke you up? Just curious, do not feel pressured into anything.

    Intriguing... to say the least...

    Beautiful poem. Only know Anais Nin for her master pieces of erotic fiction but her focus seems to have been wider. Or this is about erotic encounters, too ;-)

    Julia es por lejos la mejor performer de tu calificado team Erika, es una verdadera atleta sexual,pone todo en cada actuación, trasmite pasión y lujuria, es una verdera estrella en lo suyo. Felicitaciones para ella y para vos por captar con la cámara toda su intensidad..

      Estoy totalmente de acuerdo. Me fascina!

    Wow, no tengo palabras para describir o expresar lo que me hace sentir este film... El comienzo tiene una fuerza increíble, se me antoja reír, gritar, bailar y saltar como lo hace Julia. Locura deliciosa y salvaje, me ha llegado bien adentro. Gracias por estas obras maestras!

      Julia shares with us the most astonishing orgasm I have ever seen or heard!! I read a comment for another film, critical of obsessing over orgasms as a sexual goal. But Julia arrives at this amazing finale as she does every movement in the entire film, with abandon. I read Erika praising Julia's sexual talent in her films, and I totally agree.

    Muchísimas gracias por hacer esta película y a todos quienes participaron en la realización de esta fantasía. De corazón.
    Me he sentido muy identificada con la energía loca del film y las caras de Julia. Tanto, que ha sido como si alguien se acercara y me dijera: ''está bien. no estás rota.''
    Gracias por elegir buena química entre los actores en tus pelis.

    Cada vez que veo este video descubro cosas nuevas en Julia, es una Gitana salvaje pletórica de una energia sexual q traspasa la pantalla, amo a esa mujer, y a ti Erika por sacarla del porno vulgar...

    This was one of the finest porns I have ever seen in my life. I mean, the usage pf poetry, it's angst expressed so vividly by the performer and the music, and the resultant eruption of freedom, all take this film into a different space altogether. Thank you, Erica, for this fabulous piece. Quite excited to watch your other works.

    This is the BEST adult performance EVER! A film CANNOT fail with Julia Roca in it... Her moaning alone can make a man come, even without actually seeing the clip...

    too sad that i cannot watch th vdeo.

    this was brilliant!

    I really liked the montage-like intro part. I wouldn't have complained if the whole short film was like that. But it is good. :)

  15. Oldwiz71 says:

    Absolutely amazing! Julia seems to have unlimited energy! I am very impressed. Also great location and great sex too. This has to be one of the most impressive movies I have seen!
