The seventh in the Real People, Real Life, Real Sex series, Brett and Melanie: Boi Meets Girl features the relationship story of a butch/femme couple, and includes frank footage of their lovemaking along with their candid testimony.
Told with the kind of warmth, humor, and perspective that only an established relationship brings, Brett and Melanie share their experiences of recognizing and embracing their sexual selves, and the story of how they met and fell in love. Throughout the interview, there is a constant dance of who is strong for whom, of who is vulnerable and who nurtures; and this dance continues when Brett and Melanie make love.
How often do you get to see films with a real lesbian couple talking frankly about their relationship and sex life, having sex, and genuinely being authentic and open? What? Never, you say? Oh yeah, I forgot, lesbians are a completely underrepresented minority in popular culture. We rarely see images of ourselves, and the ones we are treated to are often exploitative, or vaguely unappealing... But Brett and Melanie: Boi Meets Girl is a beautiful, erotic, authentic portrayal of a lesbian relationship. We loved it. Loved it. --Diana Cage, Velvetpark
About the Director
In a world awash in sexualized imagery, why does so little of it speak to the common pleasurable reality of sex? In his 20+ years as a filmmaker and photographer, Tony Comstock has explored this and other aspects of the human condition. Subjects of Comstock's films have included love, sex, 9/11, indigenous fisheries, hurricanes, refugees, HIV/AIDS orphans, and the visualization of God. His current focus is the Real People, Real Life, Real Sex series. Reaction to these films has ranged from film festival laurels and critical and popular acclaim, to police raids on screenings and intimidation of DVD retailers.
