“CHEMISTRY,” TRISTAN TAORMINO’S FIRST DIRECTED FILM FOR VIVID
Los Angeles – (September 12, 2006) – Chemistry is the bold and sexually experimental first movie conceived and directed by Tristan Taormino for Vivid. This 4-hour, 2-disc set shot in Hi-Def, is scheduled to be in stores starting September 19th.
Taormino asks us to imagine an uncensored, intimate look at seven stars – Dana DeArmond, Marie Luv, Mika Tan, Taryn Thomas, Jack Lawrence, Kurt Lockwood and Mr. Marcus – who are left to their own devices for two days and told nothing is off limits. Not only is everything caught on camera, but we also get unique perspectives as the actors film each other with their own “perv cams.”
“The stars decided who they had sex with, when and where and this gave them the freedom to really be themselves,” says Taormino, “They really tested each other’s boundaries as well as their own. We get to see raw emotions, spontaneous sex, explosive orgasms and that one ingredient that I think is so important: Chemistry. Not only will the sex scenes surprise people, but the stars revealed some very personal things in the confessional.”
The movie features music by indie bands Goodfinger and Boxelder and the DVD contains more than an hour of bonus material including additional sex scenes.
Ms. Taormino is the author of three best selling books on sex and 14 anthologies. She conducts popular sex workshops across the country in addition to being a columnist for The Village Voice.
Before joining Vivid she directed and produced three adult films includingTristan Taormino’s Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women, which won two AVN awards and an XRCO award.
About her work for Vivid Ms. Taormino says “While women and couples have finally been acknowledged as a viable segment of porn consumers, mostly only plot driven features are marketed to them. Plenty of men and women tell me that they love all-sex videos so the focus of my work is on fresh performers, hot, spontaneous sex, real chemistry and real orgasms for everyone. Couples already trust Vivid for erotic features, now they can count on Vivid for hot reality, too.”
