"Facettes de la petit mort" Yes, it's erotic but it doesn't feel like porn. Or does it? (NSFW)

You can say DP all you want, and it doesn't sound like porn, does it?

Thanks basher but the link (www) didn't come up in the search.

On first glance the typeface for Beautiful Agony reminded me of Eduardo Recife's Selfish. But the characters, such as the "f," are not Selfish. Anyone have a clue as to what face the logotype utilizes? (Maybe this is something for Ask Mefi, or the Typophile Forum?)

hjarten, you got (you have gotten) the gender (you have gendered) of "la mort" right, (unlike some -- no link provided), but could we please have the adjective agree with the noun? Like, ah, la petite mort. Please Gob, may we stick with this Euro-mandated standard?

I'm thinking I might take that new chick from logistics. Things go well, I might be showin' her my Oh-face. Oh! Oh!

Heh! Did you see the outtakes of Drew, from office space? They're hilarious!

I saw this somewhere a while back. I think it's a beautiful view of a person that the sex industry (for lack of a better term) doesn't often show.

"Facettes de la petite mort" is a really cool concept (what Nenna said). Has anyone watched the vids? Do any look, ya know, faked? These are "30 days - Recurring billing US$14.95", etc., right?

I think Drew showed up late in the first season on Dead Like Me, erratic frog, as a temp in the cubicle farm where the main character works. A very cool reference to Office Space, which has to be getting close to cult status by now. Dead is a fun series, IMO, collected on DVD at the video stores now.

I think Saatchi & Saatchi (UK ad agency) did something very similar - well, indentical, actually - in a campaign for an upmarket London sex shop call Coco de Mer a few years back. Nothing new under the sun, not even pseudy porn.

What will they do when they go over 9999 videos?

Oh yes!--Oh no!
You come here often?
Twice. And just because ‘petit’
Missed the DP search.

They have free samples on the site and there are some illegals floating around the p2p networks. They don't look fake at all.

I told you it was fake!

The free samples on the site change every week or so, so unless you want to see all of them systematically, you don't have to purchase a membership. Just in case, um, you wanted to know.

I remember seeing this site a little over a year ago. I thought it was pretty cool and very erotic. It seems that they have quite a few more videos now.

Funny, I just had one of those moments while looking at this site -- the one where you realize you have arrived in the future.
