Ever thought about shooting a sex movie? Ever shot you and your girl/boyfriend while having sex and thought “hmm, this is cool”?
My next book, Shooting Sex, will be a guide on how to shoot your own explicit movie and it’ll be out in 2011…
Until then, here’s a preview of the book and its introduction so you can know more about the project and start thinking about your future creations…
SHOOTING SEX – INTRODUCTION
Already some years went by since I finally succeeded in doing something that I had been obsessed with for quite a time: doing an explicit movie matching my requirements, trying to change the very foundation of conventional porn. The story was called The Good Girl and was about a sexual encounter of a normal girl – could have been one of your friends or even yourself – and the dreamy pizza boy that fulfills all her expectations. I relieved myself from the clichés of porn and started to design my master plan to show the world that a different kind of porn was possible; a cinema with a female touch, with elaborated esthetics and characters with credible motives and real feelings. The Good Girl was a great success career-wise as well as artistically.
Let’s start at the beginning.
Nadine Thornhill is an award winning playwright, actor and spoken word poet. She lives in Ottawa and she is the Program Co-ordinator for Planned Parenthood’s Insight Theatre, a unique non-profit, public education theatre program created by, for and about youth.
Committed to connecting people to their neighborhoods, Apt613 is Ottawa’s digital alter ego, a platform for participation and community building, a place where you can learn and talk about new and exciting people, places, and goings on.
Every last Friday of the month you’ll find the Dirty Laundry sex column on Apt613. Relationships, sex, porn trends, contraception… Nadine talks about everything with a simple, fresh, natural and down-to-earth style. Far from Cosmo’s 10 tips to lose weight, Nadine stays real and provides us with a pleasant and useful column.
Single, in a relationship or even unable to define your “status”, you should check it out.
A while ago I talked about the female gaze and about how real male erotiscism is hard to find… That’s why I would like to share with you some pictures to exercize our female gaze, as a Christmas present…
You’re free to send me your pictures and findings and of course to comment…
You may also submit your creations to XConfessions.com by sending me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Here’s a preview…
What do they have in common? They didn’t think it would get better. And they killed themselves. They were excluded, bullied, degraded, humiliated, even tortured. Why? Because they were gay, or suspected to be gay by their peers. An upcoming term for this seems to be bullycide – and statistics seem to prove that schoolkids being bullied are more likely to commit suicide. They didn’t believe in a positive future anymore, and they didn’t have any support or gay role models showing them that they can get through and that it gets better. After this series of suicides, Dan Savage and his partner Terry created a YouTube video to tell LGBT youth everywhere that it indeed gets better.
According to the NY Times, Dan had the idea after he blogged about the suicides and a reader commented: ‘I wish I could have told you [talking to the boy that killed himself] that things get better.’ Dan felt the same way. He regularly speaks at colleges, but wouldn’t get permission to do so at middle and high schools. But not to leave those kids to ‘parents, preachers and teachers’ who ‘believe they can terrorize gay children out of being gay as they grow up’, he did the first video. Inspired by this initiative, the It gets better project was founded, first on YouTube and later on its own website, after it reached the YouTube video limit in the second week. It’s a worldwide movement against harassment, with 5000 users and more than 15 million views. On the homepage young people can listen to the stories of people who had similar problems, and how – and most importantly THAT it got better, and that they can have the same in their future. People sharing their stories and people seeking help.
There’s a lot of interesting contributions, like for example openly gay lance corporal Wharton from the British military, also a number of celebrities like Janet Jackson. As well as a lot of politicians contributed to the project, even Barack Obama:
Whatever it may be, the only advice is to stick it out, to get through – it will get better. After graduation things will change rapidly, popularity contests, peer pressure, bullying drops off (basically you never have to see the people from school again if you don’t want to), you can leave the small and conservative little town, you can find a working place where you’ll be accepted and you can be yourself openly, you’ll get more independent from your family, and they might even learn to accept it.
Hold out – it gets better!
I’d like to present my brand new initiative: XConfessions.com. It’s a website on which you can share your sexual fantasies, anecdotes, memories… without censorship. Since lately Facebook&co have been censoring everything with a nipple, I felt the need to create a place where everyone could talk about sex, say words like fuck, orgasm, boobs… and have a nice time sharing and reading stories. And it’s completely anonymous so no worries on this side.
Besides, we created a gallery with illustrated confessions featuring designs, pictures and drawings from the Internet. If you want you can even suggest your creations and your findings and send them to me so I can upload them on the website, as long as you give the author’s name (and url if possible).
There are already a few confessions, I hope you’ll help me boost the site up and share your deepest thoughts…
You can also share your favourite confessions on Facebook and Twitter…
So far, which confessions is your favourite?
