The Mystery of the Mask
Amateur couples became porn stars for a night recently -- with no worries about next door neighbors or members of the PTA discovering their secret. The key? Masks! At an "Eyes Wide Shut Night" in the famous Trapeze Atlanta swing club hosted by Swingers Date Club (SDC.com), club members took part in an X-rated video shoot while wearing cool party masks (courtesy of SDC). "I'm always amazed at how simple the 'Eyes Wide Shut' formula is," DirtyDatingLive.com (DDL) video director Natasha Manitoba commented. "It goes like this: Masks on… inhibitions off."
Manitoba said her reality video website takes pride featuring couples committed to the Lifestyle in its fully explicit videos. Working with amateurs gives DDL videos a unique element of realism… but also adds challenges.
"Lots of our performers are completely open about swinging," Manitoba observes. "They love the Lifestyle and don't care who knows it. Others want the thrill of being in an adult video, but they have sensitive jobs, or they worry what friends and neighbors might think."
She says "Eyes Wide Shut" shoots solve the problem (the name comes from Stanley Kubrick's 1999 erotic masterpiece starring Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise centering around a mysterious masked costume orgy): "We first did a masked shoot a few years back just as an experiment. But as soon as I saw how hot the footage was I knew we were onto something."
All the way
Couples took part in the Trapeze video at their individual comfort levels. Some just strutted their stuff in the opening sexy dance floor segment, making impressive use of the stripper pole. Others flirted and flashed in Trapeze's intimate lounge areas. But the bravest went all the way, in the club's anything-goes back area.
The finished product currently streaming on DirtyDatingLive is a sizzling slice of Lifestyle; real people enjoying real sex with more than a dash of exhibitionism thrown in.
Manitoba offered final thoughts on the mystery of the mask. "Even when people are stark naked and doing the rudest things, masks allow a hint of mystery, a little bit of tease. Leaving something to the imagination is pretty rare in X videos. But it's the main reason masks work so well."
