Tiger Love’s Extremely NSFW Video Explores the Liberation of Female Masturbation with Aliyah Galyautdinova

+

At first glance, a music video focused solely on a beautiful nude model masturbating — in the clouds, on a horse, in a bed in the middle of a field — might seem a little exploitative, but there’s a thought process behind the concept, director Gigi Ben Artzi says. “Women are beautiful. I wanted to document the female form in its most animalistic and wild experience. Regardless of how they are portrayed in society and are bound by social norms they are very complex and have a high sense of self integrity.”

Artzi, who put that idea to work for New York duo Tiger Love‘s “Space In Space” video, was also one of the directors of Downtown Divas, a documentary about addiction amongst Russian prostitutes, which we premiered here a while back.

“It’s important to understand that this video was a documentation of the models’ sexual fantasies. for me it was about bringing these fantasies to life in the most natural way,” Artzi says. It’s about getting lost in the natural world, and feeling comfortable in one’s body, honest with one’s sexuality. The model in question is Aliyah Galyautdinova.

That’s in keeping with the spirit of the song, the band says. “‘Space in Space’ is about our constant search to be free and the only thing that can hold us back, which is ourselves. It’s about staying true to your aspirations no matter how irrational they may seem.”
