Pornhub, Brooke Candy, Claire Barrow: I Love You

There’s been a long and storied history of art and pornography coming together to create something titillating and intellectual. Think of Henry Miller’s seriously smutty novels, or Jeff Koons’ Made in Heaven series, or even a film like Steve McQueen’s Shame.

More often than not, though, this kind of porn with pretensions of artistic merit is consigned to the gallery – or the gallery bookshop. Rarely do any of the many, many, many online porn depositories that crowd the internet bother themselves with artistry. This is, of course, a functional medium. Aesthetics be damned.

So consider our surprise when it was revealed that London-based designer Claire Barrow had worked with American rapper Brooke Candy on a feature-length film released on Pornhub. The films graphic identity was created by design duo Hard in collaboration with Superimpose Global’s Toby Evans

I Love You is the service’s second installment of their Visionaries Director’s Club scheme, following on from the Young MA directed The Gift. Highsnobiety claim that it is, “the first adult film of its kind, featuring full-length lesbian, gay, and trans scenes all in one picture.”

Over on social media platform, Instagram, Brooke told her followers that, “the film is queer, sensual, grotesque, decadent, and BIZARRE,” before going on to suggest that anyone wanting to have a good time with I Love You should start by “grabbing some popcorn & a glass of wine & watching this film with friends or a sexy pal ur trying to seduce.”

Claire was art director, producer, and on-set “fluffer” – which, she says, “just meant giving the actors water and lube and taking their chewing gum – for I Love You.

In another post on Instagram, Claire says that, “Whatever opinion you have on the company, I personally saw it as a huge opportunity to create something great on one of the biggest platforms possible. It’s been one of the best things I’ve ever had the pleasure of working on.” She adds that during the project she “made loads of new friends and learnt a lot about the industry, and also about sex.”

Pornhub’s Corey Price says of the film, “Brooke is a boundary-pushing artist with a hyper-sexual flow who has amassed a devout following over the course of her successful career,” which means he’s urging Brooke’s fans to tuck into a project which, “evokes a certain sense of empowerment, diversity and sexual liberation.”

You can see the NSFW project in full over on Pornhub itself, or watch a slightly more office-friendly trailer below. We’ve also included a stash of gorgeous posters sent over by the team at Hard.
