Love comes from many places. It comes from the brain. It comes from the heart. But the films in this year’s Late Night Love definitely emanate from the crotch. The delightful, delectable and eminently naughty selection of films all celebrate sexuality in all its forms. No matter what you’re into – or who you’re into – there’ll be something to tickle your fancy. And anywhere else you’ll allow.

Certainly, if you think glimpsing a bit of thigh is a bit racy then this programme may not be for you. But if you’re prepared to let your inhibitions go and indulge in some pleasures of the flesh (all on-screen of course) then we are sure you’ll find things here most stimulating. So come and get all sweaty under your collar and let yourself go.

And remember. It’s not who you love. But how. And how often.

A young woman indulges in erotic daydreams. The lead actors in the sexy cinema inside Thea’s head include: the gorgeous bartender from the trendy bar, who thirsts for menstrual blood; Laura’s “beautiful cousin” who plays the Magic Mike of Drag in a saucy mesh shirt; and not least of all, superblonde Sasha, an extra cool bondage expert and rigger with an exceptional sense of order. But even in her imagination, Thea encounters quite a few hurdles: What do you do with a hot pickup when the object of your fantasy doesn’t speak the same language? Are strap-ons a no-go? What about when irresistible hunger hits during a bondage session? With its humor and explicit attention to sound design and Foley effects, the film’s snaps, crackles, and pops are enough to delight any fan of ASMR, as multitalented director Marie Luise Lehner browses through the full catalogue of kink: hair, feet, nylon, sploshing, play-fighting, shibari – you name it.

The film the topic of female masturbation in order to redefine the already negatively connoted image of the female sex and thus strives to create new aesthetic associations of femininity. Our main protagonist, Barbie, undergoes a process of transformation. Like Alice in Wonderland, she is immersed in a magical world, a place of allure and delight. It is a fantastic place that leads her to change little by little to free herself from her stiffness and oppression. This short film is meant to show how unique and beautiful every woman's body is.
