Liquid Love: The G-Spot Explosion is unlike anything I have ever seen. It is at once a sex film and a documentary concerning the G-spot and the phenomenon of female ejaculation. Leila Swan, Hana Barri, Tallulah Sulis and Annie Body perform the action while sex experts Carol Queen and Deborah Sundahl provide professional commentary.
The first thing that struck me about the film is the look of it. All of the sets are bathed in sparkling light and are glowing in deep Crayola colors. They are sparse--almost amateurishly so--but appropriate. The women are beautiful and sexy; tangible and real. They come off so genuine that I wondered if they chose their own wardrobe and makeup, all of which are diverse and imminently suited to each woman. Accessories include hats and scarves and slips of lingerie. Use of makeup goes from a simple coat of lipstick on Swan to elaborate Indian-inspired eyework on Sulis, complete with a bejeweled bindi.
These girls are just adorable.
Graphic scenes include the women as they arouse themselves or each other and as they achieve climax. There are toys and lots of fingerplay. There are oral exclamations as well as the expulsion of copious fluid. But despite being graphic--and I mean gynecologist graphic--the film never felt pornographic to me. It's honest.
What these women are doing is on their own terms and they are ultimately in control of the film's content. They are relaxed, displaying, which is different than performing. And although there is plenty of girl-on-girl action, there isn't a lesbian vibe to this. It comes off as chicks having fun with other chicks--like doing each other's hair at a sleepover, but instead the game is showing off their talents with a look-what-we-can-do attitude. It's purely sexual while maintaining an unexpected innocence.
That said, I also had plenty of eyebrow-raising moments. Good.
The explicit scenes are framed with sweeping views of bridges and beaches and other water scenes. Guitars, harps and cellos playing classical music round out the score. Sundahl and Queen impart professional credibility in their lengthy discussion of the female climax and the psyche surrounding it. They talk about the G-Spot and female ejaculate and prostate with plenty of cuts to live action woven in to illustrate.
One pervasive theme throughout is that of sexual climax as healing. "I think psycho therapy would be greatly aided by physical touch to the G-Spot," says Sundahl. I understand the sentiment behind her suggestion. But as I started to think about it, I envisioned a skinny shaking girl clad in black tip-toeing into a therapist's office and biting her fingernails as she's asked to "open wide and relax." Innovative, yes, but surely not for everyone and bound to have its share of critics.
Notable tidbits from the film:
• Sundahl's explanation of the "tail of the vagina."
• Swan's recollection of a meeting with Tantric guide Charles Muir. " I asked if he would do some G-spot massage on me and he did."
• A close-up of the "Para-Urethral Sponge Push Out."
• Swan matter-of-factly using her mouth to lubricate an S-shaped Plexiglas sex toy.
• From Sulis: "The clit is sort of like the little engine that kind of gets it to move forward a little bit more," and, "Position is really important. My ass is straight up in the air and my feet are up, so I'm actually ejaculating on myself, which is really fun. It gets in my mouth and all over the place."
• Sundahl figuratively addressing men who want women to let go: "If they let go, they're going to gush all over your chest, your legs, your thighs, your face, the bed, and the pillows too."
• Annie Body on an early ejaculate experience: "We could hear it hit the wall." And on climax in general, "It's really, really refreshing," and "The more often I ejaculate, the happier I am in life."
• The mystifying things Swan's genitalia does in a very sexy scene featuring her and Annie Body, who coaches her with phrases such as, "There we go!"
• Body's more aggressive masturbation techniques.
There is thorough explanation about the phenomenon along with suggestions. "Feel how it feels in all different parts of your vagina," suggests Queen, who then calls female ejaculation an "experience beyond what you thought you could do," and asserts, "That's powerful."
I couldn't agree more.
Last year I posted this YouTube video on the Wikipedia article on female ejaculation. It was simple fodder for this blog, but the vid went on to garner almost 70,000 views (and counting), mostly via the YouTube page. Needless to say, some of those customers were expecting something a little different than what they got.
But one viewer was intrigued by the footage. Filmmaker Godfrey Silas
sent me this correspondence. And not long after that, he sent me a review copy of his film Liquid Love: The G-Spot Explosion.
