Fragments Volume 2: Ball and Chains

Note: I write this post as the Bay Area observes “shelter-at-home” in response to the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19. I am well, and wish safety for you, too. Please stay home in self-quarantine if you are able, and practice precautions to keep you, your loved ones, and community safe. I hope this new film provides entertainment and a moment of relief from the uncertainties of the world around us. I know I’m excited to share it with you. 

 
Fragments Volume 2

“Fragments 2: Ball and Chains” is now online!

I recently had the pleasure of returning to work for porn director Madison Young’s new adult film project, FRAGMENTS. The first film was such a hit that its producers asked Madison to write more, green-lighting a whole series of episodes to continue the story of a San Francisco queer couple as they navigate their relationship. In the show, my character “Joey” is partnered to a beautiful queer femme Maggie, played by Siouxsie Q. The first episode centers around Maggie’s experiences and choices. In the newly released second episode, the story dives further into the pair’s relationship with a particular focus on Joey and BDSM.

Do the skills for BDSM come naturally? Hardly! From safewords to bondage ties, there’s much to learn. Joey’s process is helped by therapists, books and videos (shout out Eve Minax!), attending a kinky play party featuring Casey Calvert and Victoria Voxxx, with cameos by leather icons (who I’m not sure are using a stage name, so I’ll just leave it at that…) and of course the support of their partner, Maggie. 

Here’s a peak behind the scenes:   

 

What’s special about this series for me is how closely Joey’s character feels to my own life, having coming of age as a recent transplant to the queer mecca that is the Bay Area, and finding a space to thrive within my queer and non-binary identity, as well as learn about sexuality, kink, and polyamory. Joey and I share a lot of similarities, so I was able to draw from personal experience in portraying the character and reliving all the landmarks that have made me who I am today.

Here’s the synopsis: 

Fragments Volume 2 Madison Young Jiz Lee Siouxsie Q

Maggie and Joey explore their kinky side together. Joey is nervous about coming out as kinky and struggles to find a way to tell Maggie just what it is that they are fantasizing about. Joey finds themself getting turned on while watching kinky porn and making their way into one of San Francisco’s BDSM parties at QBar with their friend Carrie, where Joey finds themselves entranced by a kinky exhibitionist couple. How will Joey bring Maggie into this world?

VOLUNTEERS WANTED! Or, How to Live, Love, & Fuck at the Berlin Porn Film Fest

by Jiz Lee on / BDSM, Queer Porn

A new indie adult film about making porn, finding community, and falling in love — all during one of the most unique porn festivals in the world.  

VOLUNTEERS WANTED, directed by Ron Rex, is a queer docu-porn masterpiece and I was so lucky to have been involved. I’m a sucker for meta. Porn about porn? Yes, please! This film manages to fold a realistic fantasy within a documentary to create one passionate, political story. With Kali Sudhra playing its leading lady, it’s also an out-loud and proud sex worker narrative. (If you’re not a devout fan of Kali before this film, you will be. And you will also acquire a crush on Kali’s crush, Finn Peaks. Who doesn’t have a crush on Finn?!)

 

 

Though I was originally asked to provide a small cameo, my role soon evolved into a full-on BDSM scene, in which Kali and I negotiate and perform together, demonstrating how performers work while at the festival. The camera is pulled back to allow viewers to observe the labor of creating of the image and all the collaborations of cast and crew. Stylistically, the shoot calls homage to Marlene Dietrich (fitting for a film set in Germany, no?) and queer iconography of the 30’s and captured through 16mm film.  

“I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.” ~ Marlene Dietrich 

 

Though our shoot’s aesthetic harkens back to the past, the film’s happenings at the festival are very much set in the present, complete with cameos and interviews by contemporary adult filmmakers from around the world. The festival energy can best be described as frenetic. It is a week of porn screenings and other events, and of course a lot of porn production squeezed into any available downtime. (The day my scene was shot was one of back-to-back meetings and projects that had me going from 9am until 4am the following day!) It was intense, but I’m so grateful for the opportunity and rare occurrence of so many talented people from all over the world converging in one area to make erotic art. At its core, Volunteers Wanted is also a love letter to PornFilmFestival Berlin and its participants. I had the pleasure of watching the Director’s Cut and was beaming from ear to ear as Kali made her way throughout the theater lounge and afterparties greeting friends. When she threw her arms around Bishop, I nearly cried with joy. (You’ll recognize Bishop from our shoot together a previous year with Ms Naughty, and last year for AORTA Films. See? Lots of porn gets made during the fest!)  

Volunteers Wanted is available on XConfessions (please subscribe via my referral link) and will have a world premiere at this year’s PornFilmFestival Berlin on Thursday, October 24th 20:30 at Moviemento and a repeat screening on Sunday, October 27th 21:30 at Babylon Kreuzberg. See you on all the screens, big and small!

Watch Volunteers Wanted as an individual film or get the film included when you become a member of XConfessions.
