LOVE HARD is a work of docu-portraiture from local filmmakers Sensate Films about BDSM and intimacy. In its inquiry into the loves and lives of 5 subjects, it presents unique, articulate, and thoughtful perspectives on how kink can function in our lives – as a practice of art or intimacy, as a mode of expression or release, as an iteration or an obliteration of self, as a way to play, a way to fuck, a way to love, a way to be ordinary.

LOVE HARD + Live Q&A with director Gala Vanting and cast

Best Lesbian Romance 2009: Radclyffe

Who says romance is dead? Certainly not the authors of these powerful stories of lesbians in love — and sometimes in lust. Best Lesbian Romance 2009, edited by the award-winning author of such books as When Dreams Tremble and Turn Back Time, presents the juiciest, most seductive love stories written today. Putting a new spin on the subject, these stories explore the underlying emotions and complex relationships that help define love between women. Radclyffe has assembled a remarkable collection of stories that carry the reader on a journey that tugs at the heartstrings, titillates, and blissfully explores the pleasures of Sapphic lovemaking. From a shy glance across a crowded room, to a casual meeting at a dinner party, to an accidental encounter on a street corner, this delightful potpourri collection of romantic interludes showcases the many ways love can be both lost and found. From the poignant intimacy of discovering love and cherishing loved ones to erotic encounters involving sensuous leather play and steamy hot tub sex in the midst of a snowstorm.

Contributors include Jennifer Fulton, Karin Kallmaker, Radclyffe, Rakelle Valencia, and Alison Tyler.

A first rate anthology for fans of LesFic romance!

Lesbian Sex and Sexuality Uncovered:
A joint eXXXpedition between MaXXX Black and ACON

Gorgeous girls, sex education, cupcakes and champagne anyone? I can safely say that your darling MaXXXie is not adverse to any of these, separately wonderful, but when put together…. Oh, yes! Give it to me hard, you bad girl!
The night started with all the red hot chicks from ACON and spunky MaXXX staff looking their absolute seXXXiest, readying all the essentials for the amazing night ahead of us, polishing all the glasses, making sure there were new batteries in the toys, beautifying the shop and of course checking the champagne and cup cakes for poison.
Fashionably late, oh no not these girls, fashionably early. The evening was to start a 7, but as early as 6.30 our seXXXy eager beavers were arriving ready to start their night of fun and informative sexual education.

First up there was champagne, mingling and like at any good party, checkin’ out the goods. Then the magnificent Siri from ACON began her eXXXciting interactive workshop. “Fisting!” “Growling Out!”. Gosh did we have a feisty bunch on our hands! This was an exercise where all the lovely ladies yelled out what two (or more) women could do together either on the street or in private. And those were the two first ones they came up with! Oh, you naughty girls! It must have taken about 45 mins and running out of anything else wonderfully rude to finally come to kissing and holding hands. Ha Ha, my type of girls!

Then after a little break, more champagne and some baby cupcakes, there was my favourite game, What’s in my box? Ooops, I mean What’s in the box? The group of lusty girls were broken up into small groups and given a mystery box, where they had to identify the contents and make up some scenarios where they could be used. So, what was in your box, I mean the box? I hear you say. Well, many things, some girls were left with a confused look on there faces and some were had that telltale smug grin of knowing. I sure did enjoy prancing around the room looking in all of their boxes….
A big thank you to some of the more experienced girls, who practically gave us a full demonstration on how to use what was in their mystery box. It was greatly appreciated!

The night finished as well as it started with rope bondage demonstrations, a big thank you to Mistress Jadis and submissive fleur. You are always such a hit! Oh and to the girls that got up and involved in the rope bondage, I saw everything!

Then it was our turn to do some education about the wonderful products that we have here, at your favouritest ever shop, MaXXX Black, and as a wonderful addition to the night, we launched your new favourtitest new web site. Yes that’s right, we are taking over the world wide web. So we look forward to seeing all of you either on our seductive new site, or in at the one and only MaXXX Black.

So from all of us at MaXXX Black thank you to everyone that come along, having such a gorgeous and fun bunch of women made it the eXXXciting and rewarding evening that we were all looking forward to!

Till next time, stay safe and Merry Mardi Gras….
