Fucking in Love

Justine Pluvinage
France 2014 / 72’

April 19th, 2011. I land in New York for a trip of two months and a half. A few months before, I left the man with whom I spent 9 years of my life, from 18 to 27. He was my first lover and remained the only one all these years. He used to tell me that love didn’t exist (…) That relationship enabled me to avoid getting confronted to men’s desire and libido. Leaving him meant setting me free. That trip is a quest, a way of asserting myself as a woman driven by sexual urges. Fucking In Love is an intimate, downright exhibitionistic diary about traveling and picking up men. From a broken condom to a marriage proposal, Justine dutifully records every one of her encounters with men and always with her camera. The presence of the camera actually makes it easier for her to meet these men, who later wind up in her bed, where they are questioned, analyzed, and immortalized. An uncensored, erotic self-portrait that discusses sexuality, sexual stereotypes, love, relationships, and lust.
