Rock and Roll and the Erotic
December 21, 2010 6:38 AM   Subscribe

Any recommendations for erotic film scenes, songs, literature, etc that incorporate rock and roll - like the kiss in The Runaways? Bonus points if it involves two girls.

So I was going through Daily Beast's list of sapphic movie scenes and only the one from The Runaways did anything for me. The rest were killed for me mostly by cheesy music and what seemed like too much melodrama.

What I really liked about that scene was both how essentially simple and languid it was, and also its incorporation of rock music and rock aesthetics - not just in the look of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, but also the lights turning red, the song in the background, the hazy look and feel of it all.

A lot of songs I find sexy and erotic tend to be dark immersive rock songs; not metal or industrial headbangers, subtler than that, but still with an edge. Good examples would be Muse's Feeling Good or Darren Hayes's I Like The Way. I've been looking for erotic fiction that carried the same qualities, but so many of them start off with utter cheese that it's hard to feel hot about it. I do find the gothy/vampire/bois-in-eyeliner look hot as hell, but I was hoping for less cliche variations on the theme too. I like my erotica still teasing, to an extent - not completely raunchy and explicit, but leaving delicious hints to the imagination.

Are there any other examples of erotica, sexuality, porn, etc that has a dark, rock, edgy feel to it? My particular predeliction would either be solo or with two girls, but any combination is fine really.
