This show featured a bunch of sexy, weird, or funny shorts. Sometimes all three at the same time! This is a fine counterpoint to Lot in Sodom, and I can’t help wondering what people will think at VQFF’s 125th anniversary when they watch these shorts again…
In Bang Bang, Mihee Nathalie Lemoine recounts her abuse at the hands of a racist teacher. Short, raw and personal.
In the deliriously WTF MeTube a chubby man sings from Carmen’s Habanera aria, while his kitchen turns into into a dance club populated by elderly S/M musicians in latex and ball gags. Hella catchy, though not really sexy unless you’re into that.
In Interchangeable, two women have an awkward moment when they realise they’re both wearing strapons. Equally awkward psychoanalysis and hugging ensue.
In Gingers several redheaded men talk about being ginger, the misconceptions and fetishes, letting the camera explore their bodies. Very fun, and very hot.
In What Makes Us Queer several women talk about what it means to be queer, and how it’s about far more than just sex.
In Law and Order two elderly German gentlemen talk, argue and engage in BDSM play. These two are absolutely adorable, and it’s clear they’ve grown old together and are just totally comfortable with each other. The sex play is not meant to be sexy to the viewers, it’s just… there, just a thing they like to do, another part of their life together.
In Audrey’s Beard, a butch dyke celebrates her facial hair.
Mates and Anchor Anatomic are simple straight-up hot, plotless sex. The former, directed by the same guy who did Gingers (and I think I recognise some of the same actors), is about a few UK lads hooking up after a soccer/football game. In Anchor Anatomic two twinks—one with an anchor tattoo, one with an anatomically correct heart tattoo—go at it every which way.
In Intersexed, a woman argues with herself after sex. It’s way funnier than it sounds.
In Beast a man explores his lover’s body with his hand. Very cute and sexy.
In Tap Tap Tap a certain US Senator’s wide-stance toilet misadventure is reimagined as an old-school cabaret song and dance number. He still gets arrested at the end, though.
