“Musicians have sex like they play music,” Madison Young said. “Some are slow and plodding, some are kind of emo, some are hard and fast, and some should just stay in their bedrooms and play by themselves.
“I’ve been with a lot of musicians,” she said.
Reading from her poem “Writers And Rockstars,” Young hooks up with one of the latter for a backstage quickie with a little gagging, a little flogging, some candle wax, and a lot of the impressionable skin of Madison Young.
I’ve been to poetry slams and Madison Young is unlike any standup poetess I’ve ever met.
Written and directed by Young and spanning the length of three songs by the band Casual Lust, Writers And Rockstars is impeccably shot, though it skimps just a little on the sort of lingering shots one might expect from a standard porn movie. But it compensates by presenting Young as a woman who really loves what is happening to her.
Her partner is Daniel, and we get the idea that the two have stolen away between band sets. He manhandles the petite Young and she loves it. He sticks his fist in her mouth, he smacks her pussy, whips her with a belt, and finally drips wax on her. He comes on her back, then needs to get back to his gig.
She lets him go with her blessing, utterly pleased to have been used so roughly. This is a couples’ movie I can really stand behind.
But Writers And Rockstars spoils a couple of things: anyone who sees it will think that his neighborhood salacious poetess likes sex. And this joyful, fast-moving scene makes a lot of porn look like just porn.
The Young/Daniel scene was shot in 2007 (“I guess he’d be the emo one,” Young said). Other scenes featuring the types of musicians Young has known will appear this spring.
