I was always really interested in the DIY porn, the people who were just like “I’m going to shoot myself having sex and throw it up on the internet either for money or just to be an exhibitionist.”

That I always found kind of interesting and then I just wanted to kind of meld it with a subject that’s always been interesting to me which is the difference between fucking and making love and that’s how it kind of came together.
