This film presents the pragmatic downside of live sex websites through following the performing partners during their breaks between sex acts. The voyeuristic eye of the webcam captures trivial arguments between partners, political discussions, and the boredom and tired resignation of people trapped in a virtual aquarium.

“Don't slap me, it hurts. I am a small girl and it hurts me as well.” “You are quite something. You are hypocrite. Do you think when you slap me it doesn't hurt? Do you know how much those fucking scratches hurt me?”

Steffen Köhn holds degrees in social anthropology and film. He focuses primarily on the theory and practice of ethnographic film, anthropological media and post-colonial theory. He participated as a filmmaker in the project Intimate Distance (2014) about the phenomenon of communication via Skype. The results from this project premiered at the Jihlava Festival.
