PinkLabel.TV’s Best Films of 2022

 

GAME NIGHT (Adorn and Wild Card)

Game Night

Game Night
Jennifer Lyon Bell

A series of playful, intense, and hot games set the stage for sex that is spontaneous, wildly creative, and full of chemistry.

Adorn features a hot and intense game that starts completely naked. Their game has one simple rule which prevents them from ravishing each other immediately: They can touch, but only through clothing. They improvise unusual ways to arouse each other through their clothing and underwear: Teasing, fighting, kissing, fingering, and fucking. By the end, urgency overtakes them and they forget the rules as they start ripping clothing off and make each other come again. Starring award-winning performers Sadie Lune and Parker Marx in their first time together.

Wild Card is a playful, improvised fi lm inspired by an intriguing card game. Hidden around the room are playing cards, each with a surprising nonsexual body part, like “elbow.” Laughing together, inspired by their undeniable attraction and the mysterious deck of cards, Bishop and Kali pick cards and experiment with each others’ bodies as the heat builds between them. Their sensation experiments grow more daring, and soon they cannot resist teasing each other to orgasm after orgasm. This charming and explicit game of discovery and pleasure is full of warmth, humor and electric chemistry. Starring award-winning performers Kali Sudhra and Bishop Black.

EXTRAS: Watch a special interview with filmmaker Jennifer Lyon Bell in which she shares her philosophies and experiences creating the films. (Included with purchase of the film, or a PinkLabel+ subscription.)

Melting Point

Melting Point

Melting Point
Mindy Stricke

Melting Point is a queer, experimental erotic short that captures the heat between two lovers, literally. Shot with a thermal camera, the film records the scene using temperature instead of light, revealing new ways of seeing pleasure, play, and desire. An Erospace film Mindy Stricke.

Melting Point shows the dance of the erotic through the female gaze and an unusual lens. Two female lovers come together in sensual and sexual play—only the scene is filmed with a thermal camera, which records temperature instead of light. Purple and black represent cold, while orange, red, and white show heat. The warmth of a hot shower, the extreme cold of ice cubes sliding across skin, and the literal heat of two bodies coming together are transformed into unexpected explosions of color. The resulting experiment allows us to see women’s sexual pleasure differently, and the joy that is possible when we are honest about who we are and what we want.

“Best Erotic Film” Winner at the Peephole Film Fest Mexico, and an official selection that captivated audiences from Australia to San Francisco.

And then we touch

And then we touch

And then we touch
Benjamin Egger

AND THEN WE TOUCH raises our awareness of the performative nature of categories such as humanity and animality and confronts us with our own needs for sensuality, touch and playfulness as human animals. The viewer becomes part of an intimate scene between two pup players in a living room. The close-up cinematography shows the soft touches and playful actions of two men dressed as dogs.

In this cinematic essay a post-human identity performed through bodily gestures and grunts is manifested. A shimmering space opens up when the human touches the non-human.

Honorable Mention at Flip the Script Fest, and an Official Selection Internationale Kurzfilmtage (Switzerland) Official Selectio El Festival Mix (Mexico) Official Selection NewFest Filmfestival (USA) Official Selection Sicilia Queer Filmfest (Italy) and Winner Prix Porn 2022 La Fête du Slip (Switzerland).

AUF DISTANZ

AUF DISTANZ (DISTANCED)
Feuer Zeug

Set and shot in March 2021 during the time of curfews and quarantine, DISTANCED focuses on all these positive and funny moments of interaction that have still been happening.

Apart from warm and inviting scenes starring newcomers Otto Untertage and Popo Chanel, feuer.zeug’s fourth film was also influenced by what has already been foreshadowed in earlier works: their love for the Black Forest region where they work, proving that porn happens also outside of the big cities.

Audiences will delight in an unlikely mixture of genres: RomCom, gay porn and what Germans like to call “Heimatfilm”.

Tease Me Ready

Tease Me Ready

Tease Me Ready
Bea Blue

How much do we evaluate foreplay during sex and what kind of chronology does sex follow anyway? This film challenges these questions and plays with their dynamics in bed, addressing lust and desire beyond gender expectations. It presents a non-binary sensual journey for the performers, the director, and the viewer. Who is really being teased, who really is in charge during the film?

Life is dynamic and does not follow a simple script, so our porn shouldn’t either. In this film, rules are broken intentionally to raise up questions about narratives in porn and you (the viewer) might be more involved than expected.

Starring Dante Dionys and Neen Sever.

Bea Blue debuted her films on PinkLabel.TV earlier this year. Be sure to check out her newest release, Girlsplaining, and solo films Fuck Yourself and Overcum Your Fears. We’re looking forward to more from this exciting new director!

Anoushka

Vivante is the love story of Charlotte and Lou, and her physical and mental recovery after a traffic accident. Lou will come back to life through love, her passion for dance, as well as through sex, with the help of a sex worker dedicated to supporting people with disabilities.

In this new production, Anoushka explores rare themes in pornographic cinema that are disability, sexual assistance, and self-acceptance, while breathing a wind of hope for those who have experienced painful events in their lives.

Another new studio that wowed us with hit after hit, check out Anoushka’s other features and short films, like Feeling Good, Over the Rainbow, Blow Away, and Captive.

Anoushka has worked in alternative porn since 2014, starting alongside pioneering French director Ovidie, and later pursing her own films inspired by her passion for cinema. Anoushka uses narrative, original music, and sincerity in her approach to sex scenes and likes dramatic and intimate comedies. She casts an entourage of performers who she considers her porn family and you can feel the chemistry. Strong, powerful, and inclusive, her films are an ode to pluralistic love.

LUMILUST

LUMILUST

LUMILUST
Josefa Jensch

LUMILUST is an experimental short film that visualizes autobiographical experiences with arousal, lust and the different ways of experiencing an orgasm from the perspective of a cis woman, playfully and confidently.

A delightful interplay of close, dynamic images of a female-read body and light projections on bare skin. Light as an element that can evoke impulses, temperatures and movement associations and inspires our imagination. Light as the protagonist, which can be felt on the skin, draws attention and perhaps makes those sensations visible that are difficult to grasp and describe.

This highly sought after German experimental short was an official Selection at the San Francisco PornFilmFestival, SECS Fest, PEEPHOLE filmfest, Post Pxrn Film Festival Warsaw, Porn Film Festival Vienna, Pornfilmfestival Berlin, Athens Porn Film Festival and many more.

The French Boys

The French Boys

The French Boys
Genevieve Kuzak

The French Boys is a trans masculine erotic film featuring two trans boys that depicts the sexual fantasy of an unnamed narrator as they masturbate to fall asleep.

Independent adult films are often born from a longing to see one’s own sexuality reflected. When representations are limited, the desire to fulfill this need can overcome obstacles. Still too rare are adult films that feature lovers who are both butch, masculine, or “butch4butch” and that’s where Genevieve Kuzak’s interest in filmmaking came to be.

GODASSES – Part III: Jamal Phoenix

GODASSES – Part III: Jamal Phoenix

GODASSES – Part III: Jamal Phoenix
Emre Busse

In the final installment in his GODASSES trilogy, Emre Busse conspires with trans porn talent Jamal Phoenix to redefine the desirable body outside of a hegemonic society’s normative restrictions and, because of the specific relationship that pornographic images have to their audience, fuck with a viewer’s assumed self-assurance as being a coherent sexual subject.

Even the bodies of spectators that do not identify as gay might be moved upon encountering the scopophilic richness of Jamal Phoenix’ FTM body in action with other men: the body might move in ways that the mind did not anticipate. As a result of this disordering, or the apparent dissonance between mind and body that one possibly experiences, the genitals ultimately take off from binary sexed bodies and are merely immersed in a collective pursuit oriented towards the intensification of pleasure.

The short film screened as part of the closing night celebrations at the 2022 San Francisco PornFilmFestival.

Loved Him

Loved Him

Loved Him
Wavey Davey

The two lovers you’ll meet in this video got together one cold day in November 2020 — right at the height of a global pandemic — to fuck for a purpose: The memory of their friends who had died… not in the current pandemic, but in the one before.

We have come a long way as a culture of gay men, who lost so many members of our community between 1982 and the present day. Some say that when we’ve learned what we needed to learn from a trauma or challenge, it passes; whatever we didn’t fully learn or integrate comes up again in the form of a new challenge. What have we learned as a culture of gay men who witnessed the loss of so many friends?

What have we learned… and what do we still have left to learn now? Tantra, ultimately, is a marriage of opposites.

The video you’re about to see stands as hard evidence that we’re not done grieving, yet it also stands as a perhaps unprecedented testimony to the REALITY that even the deepest well of grief—when properly acknowledged and embraced—can become a wellspring for joyful, ecstatic sexual fun and deep, soulful erotic connection. Video concept by Brad Amberheart, produced by Himeros.
