Some Never Awaken in my new XConfession!

I’m so happy to finally bring you my new release on XConfessions! This confession was inspired by an Anaïs Nin poem about the monotony and conformity of life, and how to break free from it! And of course, what better way than with a sexual awakening. I was able to work with two of my favourite performers again, Sylvan and Julia Roca. Some Never Awaken is uninhibited, passionate and primal!

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.”

From Anonymous’s confession Some Never Awaken

In this short, Julia Roca explores a sexual awakening. We see a different kind of performance from this incredible actress, in that she dances, runs, screams, leaps and exudes passion and energy throughout! We were able to film in a beautiful old building, in which Julia explores each room and herself, staring lustfully at herself in the mirror or exotically winding down a passageway.
We see her lose all inhibition, before joining Sylvan G in bright and airy room, were there’s an air of experimentation and new beginnings. These perfomers have so much chemistry together. The sex is so real and electrifying between them! And the climax… well, you’ll have to watch and find here!
Julia is always such a pleasure to work with. She is so full of life, with an incredible passion and an even bigger smile! She really lights up the set with energy. She was the perfect choice for this short. For the dance scenes, Julia worked with a coach, Riikki, for several days, learning how to move her body artistically and interpretatively. The results (as I’m sure you’ll see!) are incredibly, but I think Julia’s natural confidence and elegance are also to thank! As always, she was super easy to work with.

I am so much more in love with Sylvan after this shoot as well! He gave an air of awe and submissiveness with Julia, like he couldn’t believe his luck and wanted to totally absorb every moment of it. Their chemistry was incredible, but the look on Sylvan’s face screams real lust and real pleasure. He becomes less and less able to hold control and when he finally gives in to the euphoria, wow!

In fact, the pair had so much fun on set that we ran a little over time and it started to get dark! I wanted the short to be full of light and energy, so it was important to maintain the bright natural daylight we had so much of earlier! Luckily my amazing production team were on hand to set up some equipment and turn everything around. I’m so glad, I think everything turned out perfectly!

In XConfessions, people from all over the world share their sexual stories and fantasies. Every month I pick two and turn them into cinematic short films. Still not a member of XConfessions? Register now! Or share your sexual fantasy, and it might become a short film
