Making Love, Not Porn.

Alright perverts. We've hinted around it long enough, itching to fill you all in on the details but required to wait it out. The time has come and we're finally able to reveal exactly what it is we've been so damn excited about for the past year.

Yes, this is a still from one of our new videos. 
Around Christmas, we were contacted by Cindy Gallop, who you might know from her TED talk "Make Love, Not Porn" (NOT anti-porn AT ALL, as many people assume) or perhaps from her fucking rad Black Apartment (the same apartment she asked us to come meet her in to discuss some things). GULP.

We were understandably excited and TOTALLY nervous. She had apparently seen some of our videos and liked what she found. She filled us in on an idea she was working on, a web start-up that spoke to us so directly it was actually hard to believe.

Her idea? makelovenotporn.tv*

The concept speaks directly to her TED talk, which is about many things, but mostly how many of us are learning about sex through pornography. Which, in turn, means the results in the bedroom are tragic at best. Porn sex isn't how most people have sex. It's sanitized, filmed in crazy positions, rarely ever considerate of female pleasure, full of fake moans and faked enthusiasm. But then you already know our stance on the porn industry at large, so we won't delve back in.

Coffee, Violet and masturbation. What more do you need?
So all this is to say that Cindy and her fucking badass team's goal is to present a new version of porn. In fact, let's stop calling it porn. Let's call it #realworldsex.

And while yes, this is technically "amateur," it's by no means amateur. As you can probably tell from some of our videos, we have experience with this stuff, we know what we're doing and we take pride in it. This isn't "just shoot it on your camera phone and slap that shit on Xtube sex." This is sex. Real sex. But captured beautifully. Thoughtfully. Patiently.

Many different couples.
Individuals.
Men.
Women.
Gay.
Straight.
Transgender.
Bi.
Poly.
And on and on and on.

Oh, and actual porn stars having sex at home!

We're all here. Sharing our sex lives. And Cindy wants you to join us. You can simply choose to watch what we've shared, or you can join in and share your own. Think of it as Vimeo for sex.

Okay, so all of that sounds fucking awesome, doesn't it? There's got to be some catch, right?

Yes, it costs money to watch, but not a whole hell of a lot. The videos can be rented for $5, half of which goes right to the people that make them (yours truly).

So that means if you've enjoyed the myriad photos and handful of videos we've already shared these past two years, you can get even more of us, plus help support us in our creative endeavors while you're at it.

This is what happens in the video. And then some.
After all, we'll be blunt, this stuff takes time. A lot of time. And it's because of that we welcome the opportunity to be supported by the people that love what we share, and would be totally flattered if you checked out a video or two on the site.

We'll still be blogging. Still be sharing photos. Still be all slutty and scandalous on Twitter (and Tumblr). None of that will change.

We've loaded FOUR new videos (we've only released five on this blog, so we're almost doubling) to the site, videos that can only be found on makelovenotporn.tv, and each comes with a preview trailer so you can see what you're getting into.

Want to watch Violet make coffee and jerk off? Done and done.
How about watching Violet give the most decadent handjob ever filmed? Got it.
Been begging for a pegging video from us? We've shot one.
How about a video of us having some sloppy sex on a snowy weekend day? Covered.

We've made sure you get a bang for your buck on these videos, so hopefully you enjoy what you find over on makelovenotporn.tv

  8. This project is so incredible I'm getting a contact buzz just reading about it.
    You guys must have said "Holy Fuck!" a hundred times in giddy disbelief since Cindy's signed you on. You haven't just gone pro, you're now porn pioneers!

    1. YEAH.

      And seriously, it still feels incredibly strange to even be talking to people like this. We're just a nerdy married Brooklyn couple that happen to blog about sex in our spare time.

  9. Makelovenotporn.tv is a brilliant project and its great to see people like you supporting it. If more people were appy to have sex without shame, the world would be a far less crazy place, imo

  11. I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly grateful I and the whole MLNPTV team are for Violet and Rye's pioneering as two of our very first #makelovenotpornstars. I promise we will get invitations out as soon as we can (we're having to progress slowly on inviting people in to make sure we don't crash and break things :) and will be thrilled to have you all as part of the MLNPTV community!

  14. There is nothing worse than watching porn filled with fake moans, bad dialogue, zero chemistry and no basis in reality. I DO enjoy watching people have sex, but when you look for amateur stuff you often wind up with Euro porn, and I don't love that either because I don't understand what they are saying. So you guys doing this is awesome!! Love it. I'm totally signing up.

    1. Ella, we simply couldn't agree more. You hit on exactly what we've been talking about and the issues we've faced when it comes to our own porn-viewing habits. What Cindy's helped create here is definitely an amazing solution to a frustrating and not often discussed dilemma. We clearly welcome it with open arms (and legs).
