Coming soon from AORTA films:
(W/HOLE) episodes 1-10

(W/HOLE) explores the incredible potency of queer hedonism, specifically how the authentic performativity of kink and queer porn can evolve trauma into orgasm, and grief into politically radical, transformative, body-based joy. (W/HOLE) investigates the complexity of pleasure, exploring the so-called obscenity of bodies in their most tremendous capacity—their glorious, illicit humanity. Amidst ecstatic water balloon fights, opulent feasts devoured without utensils, narrations of pleasure, lewd hand gestures, densely scored orgies, improvisational performance, and intense kink dynamics, (W/HOLE) proposes a new type of pornography: a world of queer sex that is at once surreally lush and intensely real.

Over the next year, AORTA films will be releasing our feature film (W/HOLE) as a 10-episode set. Comprised of 18 scenes and two additional bonus scenes, this film explores queer pleasure by colliding explicit queer porn, performance art, and dance together create an altogether unique form. These episodes are definitely a bit different from the monthly shorts we’ve been producing—this project explores questions of what is erotic and why and how, and uses both porn and art to showcase the complexity of queer joy. We hope you’ll give it a try with an open mind, and come on this adventure with us as it unfolds over the next year. We plan on supplementing any of the less-explicit episodes with some exceptionally lusty short films. We’ve got your porn cravings covered!

Episode 9: Overflow

Run Time: 8:47

Shay Knox is overwhelmed by pain, pleasure, and pure sensation.

Alice the Wolfe binds Knox to a wooden column in the middle of a dimly-lit space. She kisses them gently, and drips hot wax onto their skin. Parts Authority enters, bringing ice cubes to trace over Knox’s chest and arms. Knox shivers with pleasure as Parts kneels down to fuck them with gloved hands. Papi Femme appears with a knife, which he deftly runs over Knox’s body as their eyes roll back in their head. Erykah Ohm snaps rubber bands sharply on their skin, and then the group brings Knox to climax with hands and hitachi.

Coming September 1st!
