Sara Fabel (sarafabel.com) caught my attention on Instagram (a photosharing iPhone application).
She was odd: punky, inked from head-to-toe, pale, lanky, and had an otherworldly almost faery-like beauty.
She shared images from her life, her travels, her modeling, her photography, and her art. I was enthralled. Here was a very young woman who truly owned her own world, beginning with herSELF.
She calls herself a “freelancer” and wishes to live her life through exploring her passions…and I think THAT is…truly…the mark of a renaissance woman…one who explores their passions, on their own terms.
Cheers, to ALL of those who strive to do the same, I am proud to say that I know many men and women who have chosen this same path…and can safely say, that to pattern your life so, only inspires those around you to do the same, to follow their own dreams and discoveries.
Thank you…to ALL YOU RENAISSANCE WOMEN AND MEN, you ultimately make the word a better more beautiful and exciting place for us ALL, xxx conchita.
This is a fantastic film…detailing the bind all lovers face (as in the original), but specifically common issues faced by women who love women…and men.
The scenes depict both the tenderness of the mundane as well as the heat of passion in a way that so very few films actually capture.
Natasha: This is the first time in my life when I look like this at a woman. And never before has a woman looked at me this way.
Natasha: I think it will work better if you undress me.
Alba: I am going to give you the best kiss of your life; are you ready?
Natasha: Alba, this stays here, OK? In this room.
Alba: In Rome. But since we’re here, let’s have some fun.
Alba: If we did not have partners, what would we do, you and me?
Natasha: Do not forget, I like men.
Alba: But you like me as well.
Natasha: But I like men better.
Alba: I know some women who once they were with a woman they never went back.
Room in Rome is Julio Modem’s first English-language film and it’s based on Matias Bize’s In the Bed. In the original, a man and a woman share a night of passion and carelessly-spilled secrets. Modem’s adaptation promises all of the passion and all of the secrets — only this time it happens in Rome, between two women.
I hope this film strikes you as much as it me, salute!
It was my first full-length “film”…and the night before shooting, at “rehearsal”, my produced asked me, “What name would you like to be billed under?” It seemed at once the most simplistic and most complex of questions.
How much of “myself” did I want associated with these projects?
How important was this name?
Would I be forever associated with this name?
A name is a fairly important concept, even one that is “made up” or rather especially one that is made up! In the end I went with a classic formula, and left it to my personal history to dictate the name that would forever be associated with my work in the adult film industry.
The name Charly Carlyle originated in the same manner that many of the best names in the adult film industry have:
- What is the name of your first pet: Charlie (the German Shepard)
- What is the name of the street you grew up on: Carlisle
Combine fact with a little creativity, and a hint at my given name and voila! = PORN STAR STATUS!
It is true that I have played a doctor in my films…
So…sometimes a name represents an aspect of ourselves, a piece…to me Charly Carlyle represents an important process, a necessary process…and very much a part of who I am even if it’s not a comprehensive representation…I think THAT is just too much to ask from a name!
