- One would imagine
that in America,

we're a lot more liberal
when it comes to sexuality.

In our country,
we're still so judgmental.

Things are very taboo.

- Right now it's not
really happening for me.

I just survived
The Summer of Celibacy.

- I would say my sex life is--

I'm a very, like,
erotic kind of guy,

so I like the--
the slow, passionate--

you know, I like the build-up.

- If I could eat pussy
all day, I would.

But to me,
what I love the most is,

I like to eat pussy,
like to have sex,

When I'm done,
I gotta go have a sandwich.

People know that about me.
When I'm done having sex,

I'm gonna go have a sandwich,
come back,

and have sex again.

And then I'm gonna go get
another sandwich.

- Ideally, I'd have sex
twice a day.

Breakfast,
and fucking dinner.

- I think talking about sex

is highly important

for everyone to do,

because we don't
talk about it enough.

- I'm London.
- I'm Donovan.

- Kelly.
- Michael, and this--

- And this--
- And this--

Both: And this is our sex life.

- Oww!
- But don't tell my mother.

♪♪♪

- People come to
these Erotic Sleepovers

because they really need
and want to experience

true freedom and liberation.

♪♪♪

- [ woman moans ]

♪♪♪

- There's a spiritual
component of it.

Really getting into the energy,
learning about energies

and the sensuality
of it all.

Sex is good.
We say "yes" to pleasure.

We say "yes" to variety,
both women and men.

We say "yes" to sharing!

- [ woman screams ]

- I want them to leave
with their lives changed

forever at their core.

That's the power of
what we're doing here.

♪♪♪

♪♪♪

- You have 360 degrees
of access to your partner.

- Right.
- And so you can really

position her in any position
and play

and just have
a really good time.

- We have been married
for three years,

been together for four.

Loving every single
moment of it.

- You better.
- [ chuckles ]

- She's spicy.
[ both laugh ]

Very, very spicy.

- Are you from Atlanta?
- No.

- No?
- We've only been here

for about a year now.
She's from New York.

- New York.
- Louisiana.

- Oh, okay, okay.

- Bringing in an extra toy
or two, whatever,

it's spicy, it's sexy.

It keeps
your relationship alive.

- I think this toy is a really--
an amazing showpiece.

- Hmm.
- It enhances everything.

- Exactly, and that's
what we're about.

We're about enhancing
each other's pleasure.

- Yeah.
- That's what we're here for.

- And if it can enhance

more than what he already does?

- Mm-hmm.
- I'll just be like,

coming on the walls.

[ both laugh ]

- Bring your poncho.
Bring your poncho.

[ both laugh ]

- [ snickers ]
He's just looking at me.

- Hey, if you can work up
to it and you feel

comfortable with it,
I say let's go for it.

- Do you think they'll
have some of those

at the Erotic Sleepover?

♪♪♪

- All right, son everybody,

we're gonna go ahead
and get started.

First off, I want to say
thank all of y'all people

for coming and participating
in Erotic Sleepover 3.0.

I don't know how many
of you guys know me,

but I am gonna introduce
myself so you know

who the fuck I am.

I'm Cidney Green.
This is my brain child.

It started off as just
an idea and here we are,

three years later,
doing it.

And this is actually
a bit surreal.

You know what I'm saying?
So it's cool!

An Erotic Sleepover
is an all-inclusive,

luxury, spiritual,
sexual retreat.

♪♪♪

The people that come
to the Erotic Sleepover,

you get all walks of life.

I think the common thread
that keeps all of us together

is the desire for sexual
freedom and sexual expression.

And what I provide here
is just really a safe place.

It has to be safe
as far as not being judged,

safe as far as
just physical safety

and it's a very loving,
warm environment.

♪♪♪

- I mean...

I've never been on
an Erotic Sleepover before.

- Mm-hmm.

- So I'm just...nervous?

- Nervous?
- Nervous.

- What kind of things
make you nervous about it?

- Being outside of our bedroom.

- Right, that's--

- So, again, we haven't
been outside

of our bedroom, sexually.

So being there
with a bunch of people--

I don't even know
how many people--50 people.

You know what I mean?
It's just gonna be like--

it's--it's not normal,
it seems.

But then, what's normal?

- Yeah, nobody else can
define your normal,

but you.

- I guess.

- So let's go define our normal.

[ both laugh ]
- I guess.

♪♪♪

So hopefully, like,
we walk in and just find

the people that we're looking
to hook up with.

- Uh-huh.
- Like, that's the dream.

- That's the dream scenario?

- Like, I don't want
to go searching.

- All right,
so you open the door.

Boom. Pow. Door open.

You walk in.
Describe the person you see.

- Girl or guy?

- Let's start with guy.

- Shirtless.
- Okay.

- Abs.
- All right.

- And he's sweating.
- Okay.

- He's like--
[ growls ]

Sweat, sweat, sweat,
sweat, sweat. "You!"

And then I'm just like,
"Oh, ah!"

And then you're like,
"Do you want him?"

And then I'm just like,
"Yeah,"

and then we, like,
attack him.

Like, that's my--
when we walk through the door.

- Uh-huh.
- That's fantasy.

- First thing?
- First thing.

- Okay.
- Soon as we open the door.

And it's just like "Whoa!"

♪♪♪

- I think, honestly,
if more people did this,

there'd be a lot less cheating
in relationships.

- There would be,
and people would be together.

- That's one thing I can say.
- People would be together

and people would be happy.

- Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.

I agree.

- High five! Pow!

[ both laugh ]

♪♪♪

- What about this space?

What about--we could
put some maybe in here?

- We have to have a place
for people to sleep.

- Are those
air mattresses fluffy?

This is looking kind of--
it's still looking kind of--

Yeah, like, there needs
to be no wrinkles in it.

Stephanie, do you have all the
alcohol stations planned out?

I can put that
in Milo's quarters

if you want to,
with the trays.

I don't know if you want
the trays to be

already in Milo's quarters or
have the trays at your station.

- Yeah, the trays are
gonna be split up.

- So this year's
Erotic Sleepover,

we're gonna have 30 guests.

And this venue is by far
the best venue we've ever had,

the biggest and the most
grandest venue we ever had.

So I just can't wait
for people to see it.

Thank y'all.
Again, if I'm sharp,

it is not because I don't
love and appreciate y'all.

I'm just--
this is just sharp time.

Like, I gotta be sharp.

♪♪♪

I grew up
in Monroe, Louisiana,

obviously the South, okay.

So my mom did not raise
us in the church

like a lot of families were.

Even though my mom was
relatively liberal,

you still get
those ideals that sex is--

you shouldn't do it
and masturbation is bad.

But I started playing
with my pussy young.

I started masturbating young,
okay?

I started figuring out
that things felt good

when you touched
them a certain way

when I was about eight.

And to this day,
you should not trust me

around pool jets
because I will position myself

and act like I'm
reading a book when really,

I'm letting
the water hit my clit.

Yes, I like that.

But, I'm saying all this
to say

I still remember feeling guilt
about sexuality.

I had to figure out a way
to stop giving a fuck

about what I thought
a man wanted or what I thought

society expected of me,
being a black woman.

And I had to sit with myself,
just really figuring out

if there was no such thing
as a social norm at all,

would I like having more
than one man that love me? Yes.

Would I want to be
monogamous? No.

Would I want to have
sex as much as I want

and all this
other time? Yeah.

And I fell in love
with all of it.

And I fell in love with
the person who

had those beliefs
and had those desires.

And so yeah, I figured out
who the fuck I was

and fell in love with
that person and here you are.

I was repressed and now I'm not.

[ indistinct chatter ]

♪♪♪

- This is what we've
been waiting for.

- Yep.
- The moment we have

been waiting for.
- Here we go.

♪♪♪

[ gate buzzes ]

Look how huge this house is!

Don't forget your mask.
- I got it. You got yours?

- Yeah.
- All right.

♪♪♪

- Sounds loud in there.

- Hello.
- Hello!

Hello! Hello! Hello!

[ overlapping greetings ]

[ cheers and applause ]

♪♪♪

- Cidney is my sister.

- Cidney is your sister, really?
- Yes.

- All right, I'm Mike.
It's nice to meet you.

- Nice to meet you.
Welcome, welcome.

♪♪♪

[ laughter ]
- You're in room one.

'Cause you're number one.

- We are number one. Ohh!
- Ohh!

- When people come
to my events,

it's a very freeing,
liberating feeling.

You get to be yourself.

They get to know themselves
on a level

that they've never gotten
to know themselves before.

- Thank you, and your name is?
- Kamia.

- And her titties are not fake.
They are real.

- I see, they're gorgeous!
- They look very real.

- Those are real tits.
- Very, very, real.

- Are yours real too?
- If you need a towel,

if you need your head massaged,
whatever it is.

- Which head, though?
- [ indistinct chatter ]

- My name is Princess.

I'm the event manager
and model coordinator

for the Erotic Sleepover
this year.

I'm here for both of you.

I'm here all night
if you need me.

People are really coming
just for that ambiance,

for that freedom,
for the spirituality.

- I'm looking forward
to a whole lot of voyeurism.

Like, I want to see
all sorts of sex.

All sorts of sex--
juicy sex, saucy sex,

morning sex,
nighttime sex.

I want to see sex, sex, sex.

In the room,
in the closet, everywhere.

♪♪♪

This event has a spiritual
twist or spin to it.

- Yes, yes, and you are?

- I'm J. Jose!

- J. Jose! All right, man!

Good to meet you, man.
Good to meet you.

- So it's not your typical orgy
or sex party at all.

- That's what I'm talking about.
Get it girl, get it, get it.

- It's my quads.
- I need to get more like you.

I should start twerking more.

- What do you do?

- Eat fish.

[ laughter ]

- Brown people are
very sexually inhibited.

Don't believe all
the twerk videos you see on TV.

That's not the truth,
not for the mass populace.

We're not liberated in that way.

So if people come and
they just really want

to have good, clean, open fun,

an event like this can
open them up

to another
part of themselves

that they didn't know existed.

- We have a couple of
activities for you guys, okay?

But the first thing we're
gonna do

is introduce
you to King Heff.

[ cheers and applause ]

- I teach the sensual art
of impact play, right?

So tonight, I'm gonna do
a little demonstration.

We're gonna do a little
breath play, okay?

So if y'all don't
know what breath play is,

breath play is a little
choking, all right?

So before I do this,
consent is very key

and very sexy, all right?

So Junita, do I have your
consent to choke you tonight?

- [ chuckles ]
Yes.

- I'm watching everything
you guys do.

- Consent is very important.

Consent for everything,
not even just sex, okay?

If you want to touch somebody,

you have to get a hard "yes."

Anything that's not a "hell yes"
is a "hell no."

A "I guess you can"?

No. That's a "no," okay?

Everything has
to be a hard "yes."

♪♪♪

♪♪♪

- Oh, yes sir!

- I had strict
Caribbean parents,

and I grew up very private.

In my house,
we always were clothed.

You know, come out the shower,
you have a towel on,

you have a robe on,
you have something on.

So if I ever had anything
little on with company over,

my mom's like,
"Put on some pants."

You know, so we were
very covered.

Very--you know, sex wasn't open.

So just seeing everyone
do that was a lot.

- Remember
that 10,000 years ago,

prior to sexual repression.

[ cheers and boos ]

Prior to the Victorian Age!

[ cheers and boos ]

- I could definitely tell

that she was first starting
to get uncomfortable

right when we started
to sit on the beds.

And I think it was just
the overwhelming

of emotions
and sensory overload,

kind of with everything
that was going on.

So it was just a lot for
her to take in

and it was--it just started
going south, unfortunately.

- In societies where people
take care of each other,

all people have sex
together, who want to.

- And that's why I tried
to pay more attention to her,

every once in a while,
reach over and give her a kiss,

grab her hand
and try to hold her close,

let her know that everything's
going to be all right.

- If you would,
come around this way

and we're gonna get into
an exact circle.

Preferably male, female,
male, female.

- I'm going to
the room real quick.

- Say again?

- I'm going to
the room real quick.

- You need me?

[ indistinct chatter ]

- She's in the bathroom.

- Oh.
- She'll be back.

- ...where you're going
to practice consent.

So the woman is going
to ask for a sexual favor.

- How do I kiss two people
at the same time?

- We can kiss you
at the same time.

- Okay, that works for me.

[ laughter ]

♪♪♪

- Four, three, two,
and motherfucking one.

- I felt uptight,
a little prudish.

Like, "Oh my god,
they're naked!"

Like, you know what I mean?

So I just needed something
to loosen up

and nothing was working.

- Where are you at?
Come on, scatter,

scatter, scatter.

Get new groups!
Come on, scatter.

- It was just like,
"Come on, Sunshine."

- Is anybody gonna
come to my bed?

[ laughs ]

- I would like to have
an ass massage

at the same time
as having a boob massage.

- Okay.

- Is that something
you guys can do?

- We can do that.
- [ laughs ]

- We can do that.

You can take one of each

and I'll take one of each.
- I got you.

- [ laughs ] Yes!

I'm surrounded by
beautiful, younger men.

♪♪♪

♪♪♪

- Oh, of course.

- I didn't really know
what was going on out there

but I wasn't comfortable enough
to go back out there.

- Very strong.

Women, you can tell
your guy that they are

very powerful,
they are very strong.

[ voice on phone video ]
...change your expectation

to something different
than what is...

- You're very soft, very silky.

- So I don't know, I didn't
really know how to feel.

♪♪♪

[ voice on phone video ]
...absence of what you want,

you'll get in the presence
of what you want.

It's just that simple.

Distraction from
the absence of what you want.

- What's going on, babe?
Come here.

- Hey, go out there
and have fun.

- It's okay, I do understand
and I thank you.

But I want you to go
out there and enjoy yourself.

- Look...

- For those people
who've never been

to an Erotic Sleepover before,

first thing I would say is,
feel the nervousness,

feel some of the fear
and work through it.

Because on the other side
of fear is everything

that you've ever desired.

- So I know how last night
ended and we continue

to try and support
each other and

make sure we don't get
a repeat of last night.

- In my head, I was like,
"Yeah, we're gonna do this,

"we're gonna do that.
Oh, my God,

what if we had six guys?
What if you had--"

And you know, it was
all of this built-up excitement.

And then when I get there,
it was just a shock.

I didn't know what to expect
and it was just--

it was very overwhelming,
I guess.

- If you're not doing well
and you're not feeling well,

I'll get you up
and I'll bring you out.

You won't even have
to do that on your own.

- Okay, I appreciate that.

- I got you, babe.
- I appreciate that.

- Hey!

- So you guys are ready to play?

- The lovely Miss Princess.

- You look beautiful!
- Thank you!

I'm still gonna give you guys
your massage tonight.

- Princess has just told me
about this massage

since we've been here.

She's like "Oh, my God.

Wait till you feel my massages!"

So we're excited to see
Princess's skills.

♪♪♪

Ooh!

♪♪♪

- Soft kisses on my leg.
- [ giggles ]

- I don't know what you're
talking about.

- I would like
to feel more open.

I felt like I was closed off
yesterday to almost everything.

♪♪♪

To take everything outside
of the bedroom,

into this open forum,
you know,

is completely opposite
of what I'm used to.

So I want to be open about it.

Yeah.

- How does your butt feel?

- So good.
- [ chuckles ]

- How does it feel for you?
- So soft.

- Your skin is soft!
[ laughter ]

♪♪♪

- [ giggles ]

I've gotten a lot of massages
in the past,

but like, this was different.

She would rub a leg,
and then Mike would rub a leg,

and it was very soft,
very sensual.

For me to just have a moment
with my husband, Princess,

all in that like, more
comfortable type of setting,

I had more of a calmness to me.

Oh! That felt amazing!

Let me just relax and
everything is going to be okay.

So, it's just
a different mindset

going into the second day.

Ah, I feel so relaxed!
- Yeah, you do.

- People coming to an Erotic
Sleepover for the first time,

your programming and your
conditioning is gonna come up.

You're gonna feel triggered,
you're gonna feel uncomfortable.

[ woman moaning ]

- So I support people
in shifting their mindset.

You want to feel that feeling
and push forward anyway.

Or ask for support,
move through it,

so that you can open up,
de-stress,

and come back to
your natural, sexual self.

It was hot to hear her

It was all a hot experience.
It's definitely a fantasy

even realize we had.

- At this point, I am wet.

So I was just like "Oh, no,
no, no, no, this has to happen.

"He gon' stick it in.

We just had to

[ panting, quiet laughter ]

- Like, we just toned
everybody out from around us

and we were just doing us,
we were being us.

We did come here
for new sexual experience,

so that was, by golly,
a new experience.

It was so exciting just
to be there and to feel it

and to feel them
and their energy

and what they're going through.

And for it to be
something new for us

that we did together
for the first time,

it was beautiful.
It was wonderful.

- With Erotic Sleepovers,
I'm creating

a culture of acceptance
and really working through

the barriers of things
that society just does not

talk about, especially
in the black community.

We really are
creating a culture

of melananted acceptance
and sex positivity.

That's what we do here.

That's what the fuck
the culture's about.

- I hope we get
to do this again, baby.

It was so much fun with you.

- It was very fun
with you as well,

and it's a maybe
on doing it again.

What I expected it to be,
which was just sex everywhere

and everyone acting crazy
and things like that.

- Right.
- It wasn't like that.

- Okay.
- I mean, there was

sex everywhere and everyone
was acting crazy, yes.

But it was more than that.
It was more than that.

- Right.
- So it surpassed expectation.

We're out of here.

[ laughs ]
- Ahh! No! Don't leave!

- [ laughs ]
- [ wails ]

- I thought maybe
there would be another

Erotic Sleepover in the future.

I don't know how soon, though.

- I don't want you guys
to leave, seriously.

- I know.
I wish we didn't have to.

- I didn't get to do anything
strange with y'all.

- I didn't like that.
- I know,

we didn't do
anything with you.

- I feel the same way,

that I would definitely
love to do

another Erotic Sleepover
in the future.

Not too sure when,
but because of what

this experience did for us,
I would love to do it again.

I would love to experience
more new things

and continue to build
on our relationship,

continue to build
on the sexuality,

continue to build
on the community that we found

and just keep going.

So I do believe
we would be back.

- We might.

Thank you so much.
[ laughs ]

- Oh, Lord, save me.

- We love you!

- I think my ultimate
fantasy man is long hair,

long beard, Viking-like.

- Usually, I tend to like boys

that look like Cindy Crawford.

Sometimes, like, a short-haired
archeologist will pop up.

- My fantasy woman
is a very strong,

dark-skinned woman,

is what I always
thought I was gonna be with.

And I fell in love with
blonde hair, blue-eyed,

all-American woman
and I'm completely happy.

- If I could have
my fantasy man,

he would look exactly like
Michael B. Jordan.

I'm thinking about like 6'3".

I really like tall men,
even though I am 4'11".

We're not gonna talk
about that, though.

We're talking about
the dream guy.

- My ultimate fantasy
woman would be

probably like a '60s
sort of spy movie Bond girl

mixed with
a little bit of a vampire--

like, just a touch.

That's also
like Jennifer Connelly,

"Career Opportunities"
with, like, a little bit

of Sharon Tate going on.

You know, just ballpark.

It's about creating

in addition to arousal.

- I still can't believe
we're doing this.

- And that's what I think
VR is really, really great at,

is making you feel connected
with the person

that you're watching.

- It's an intensely erotic,
sensual, and sensory experience.

She's right there
in front of you.

She's talking to you,
she wants you,

- I've been performing in porn
for about ten years now,

though I don't perform
much anymore.

After I shot my first VR
solo scene,

we watched it
on the early Oculus Rift.

And I hate watching myself
on camera,

I hate watching my own scenes,
but when I watched that,

I felt present and transported

and this sense of awe
and whimsy and wonder.

And that was sort of
the moment that I realized

that this medium is gonna
be really incredible

for the content that I produce.

For this occasion.

- I like that.
- We like this, right.

- So first of all, let me hear
what you were thinking.

- So I want to do
a lot of oral stuff.

I want to do the lollipop.
I want to do the vape.

But I was thinking pantyhose
because I have

a lot of pantyhose fans
and it's something

that makes me feel sexy.
- Okay.

- The adult industry has
been on the forefront

of technology
