How to Make Your Own Sex Tape
Sex tapes, saucy videos, DIY porn, whatever you’d like to call them, they’re hot.
They can also be a minefield to navigate, practically and emotionally, so use this guide to get it right the first time.
Sex Tape 101
Making a sex tape might seem like a good idea at the time. You want to document how awesome you and your partner are at having sex. Heck, you want to watch yourself have sex while you are having sex, but before you hit record, freeze! Discuss with your partner how you plan to use the tape… if one of you wants to share it on Facebook with 300 of your closest friends, you might want to put your big film debut on hold.
Even if you are totally in love with your partner and think they’d never do anything to hurt you, a bad breakup can make the loveliest person go bonkers. The lesson here: if you both agree to delete the video after you watch it, you’re good to go! Press record, have sex, watch, delete, and repeat.
Set the stage
Now that you’ve figured out the logistics, it’s time to get creative and have some fun! Do you want to tell a story or do you just want a video of you going at it? Will you be doing any roleplay? What props or costumes do you want in your film? Your video might involve lots of preparation or no preparation at all. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate production, it can be sexy to spontaneously suggest making a DIY porno with your partner. As long as you have a phone or laptop with video capabilities, you’re ready for action.
The three most important elements of a sex tape to consider are lighting, lingerie, and letting go…
Make sure you have enough lighting that you can see everything you want to see (breasts, butts, penis, etc.). Do some test shots before you get started. You can always bring lamps into the room to help build the ambiance. The better the lighting, the better the sex will look. Lighting can take your film from Kim K to Erika Lust status instantly, so get that mood lighting going.
Great films are all about building anticipation. Start out the video partially dressed and slowly (or quickly!) undress for the camera. You might even want to do a striptease for your partner. Wear your cutest bra and panties. They don’t even have to be fancy. Sometimes it’s even hotter if you wear plain boy shorts and a simple bra. Knee high socks, or thigh high stockings are also incredibly sexy and draw attention to your beautiful legs.
If you’re self-conscious about your body and your facial expressions, it’s going to show. The camera doesn’t lie! Focus more on how your body feels during sex and less on what your body looks like. Trust me, your O-face is going to look better if you’re not trying to fight it. If you need extra help getting into the mood, Karezza ‘In the Moment’ Spray can help you relax and drop into your body.
Feelin’ your self
Get into the sex! You’re going to be bored to death by your own sex tape if all he’s doing is going in-and-out and all you’re doing is laying there like a corpse. Switch up sex positions, moan when you feel good, and play with your partner’s body. Light some massage candles for atmosphere and action. Drop warm luxurious massage oil on your partner and massage them all over. Then switch.
Talk dirty to me
Throw in some saucy dialogue by describing what you’re feeling or what you want your partner to do to you. Play with power dynamics of domination and submission with some light bondage, perhaps. (Bondage tape is so easy to use and no fuss for the camera.)
