We won 'Best Hardcore' in The Stranger's Hump 2007 Amateur and Locally Produced Porn Contest. We'd created Pirate vs Ninja for the first one a couple years ago, and this year they asked us very nicely to send something in. We edited down 'Everyone Likes Candy' into a seven-minute package and called it 'Lauren Likes Candy'. The audiences thought it was pretty intense, but still voted for us for Best Hardcore (as opposed to Best Funny/Erotic, the other prize).
Lauren will add to this at some point, just wanted to get something up. ^-^
Those of you in Seattle who aren't going down to Portland for either the Vampire Masquerade Ball or Kinkfest should go to the Cuff Complex for the leather contest this Saturday. Our friend (and model) Miss Candy is competing to be the Washington State Ms Leather titleholder!
'Everyone Likes Candy' is one of Lauren's two favorite shoots she's ever done, have a video sample then go give it a look... ^_^
edit 10/12 to add:
If you're looking for 'Lauren Likes Candy', our Hump 2007 winner, go here. If you're looking for the full shoot it was edited down from, go here. This post is a short sample clip that occurs in both.
We've done a lot of fun shoots over the past few years, and I have accumulated tons of great memories, but if I had to pick a very favorite, this would probably be it. This may also be the hardest I've ever pushed someone on a first scene, but Candy's and my connection was so good and she was so very articulate about her wants and needs that it just made sense to take us both where we wanted to go!
Candy and I have known each other for years, drifting around in the same sea of local perverts, but we had never played together before this scene. We both began to regret that wasted time when we got together to negotiate this shoot and realized that we were, in her words, "almost the same person." Our conversation revealed that we like to play in nearly identical ways, to the same levels of intensity and for the same reasons. That promised well for our scene--a promise that was amply born out.
Both of us forgot that the cameras were rolling pretty much immediately. We played hard and happy and with great chemistry until we were both completely worn out. I pushed her to tears a number of times, so if you like crying, this shoot will please you!
I started by securing her to the chain link fence with cable ties. That's intense, narrow bondage, but she looked gorgeous in it. Candy is a personal trainer, and I wanted to showcase all those lovely muscles.
I didn't use a lot of toys on her--I wanted the intimacy that hands-on torment can create. I warmed her up with faceslapping, hairpulling, deep muscle grabs, and solid impact from a pair of sap gloves. (The gloves, thick black leather with lead shot sewn into the knuckles, are among my favorite things EVER. They make a lot of appearances on the site.)
Whenever things got almost too intense, I switched to knifeplay, tracing the blade along her skin. That brought her back to me each time--another thing that Candy and I have in common is a love of pointy things. ("It's like sex for me," she said during our negotiations, pretty much guaranteeing that I'd use it at any opportunity!)
I also ran a couple of "zippers," rubber-tipped clothespins strung together on a line, underneath her breasts. I knew that those would be challenging for her to take. She doesn't process clamps as well as she does impact, but she took them beautifully. Her reaction to their abrupt removal was gorgeous, and inspired me to put them to the side to use again before we finished.
We took a bit of a break to rehydrate and snack. I was anxious to get back to it, though, and I think she was, too. When we began again, I asked her to extend one leg out against the fence as far as she could comfortably maintain it, and then used the flex cuffs above and below her knee to secure it there. That position left her cunt extremely exposed, which was just what I had in mind.
Once I was certain that she was safely bound, I started slapping her cunt, medium-hard at first, and gradually increasing in intensity. I told her that when she had absolutely had as much as she could take, to tell me and I would stop...but I would re-attach the zippers, this time beginning on the tender skin under her arms. She had told me before we shot that clamps under her arms were extremely tough for her to take, and usually made her burst instantly into tears.
She made herself take the cunt-slapping for a long time, pushing with everything she had and visibly struggling with it toward the end. By the time she asked me to stop, she was crying hard. The zippers brought out a fresh bout of tears as they were going on, so you can imagine (or better yet, watch!) how they were coming off.
I cut her bondage and brought her to the ground to cuddle while she bounced back to give a post-shoot interview. I was every bit as endorphin-high as she was by the end of things!
I devoutly hope that we get to have Candy back again soon. Russell has shot with her since we did this one (check out Reaction Shot if you want to see another hella hot scene with this yummy woman), but I haven't gotten my hands on her in too long. *g*

This was a two-part scene, both things I was afraid wouldn't come across on video. First part of the scene was Candy against the rack with me doing mean things to her with a TENS unit. Second part was her suspended on a neat piece of equipment that put her feet at just the right hight for me to do mean things to them. It ended up being an intense scene that worked very well, both for us and in video and stills.
We'd actually tried this shoot the week before and ran into some difficulties, had to postpone it to the following week. We'd come up with the plan looking for ways to get good intensity (which we both like) without a bunch of marking, since her mother was in town. The second time 'round we didn't have that limitation, but we were both so excited about the original plan that we stuck with it.
Electricity was new to her, but Candy and I had a good time with it. I was afraid it wouldn't look very exciting ("ooh, he twisted the dial again!"), but her reactions are hot and there's no problem telling exactly what's going on. I had a bunch of neat ways of attaching leads to her, it was even photogenic.
The second half of the scene was me poking, slapping, etc her feet (including using the pokey-zappy-thing, as Lauren and I call it, which I had somehow _completely_forgotten_ during the first part of the scene). It was some really intense play- we actually toned it down a little in the edit. I like pretty girls crying. ^-^ If you don't, you might not like this update. Candy gives _great_ interview though- I think we would have toned it down more if she hadn't been able to so clearly talk about how and why her experience was really good.
