In Praise of Eros Part Two
La Petite Mort Episode 11: Johan Paulik and Tim Hamilton
Like a Merry-Go-Round
Who said sex couldn’t have an element of whimsy to it? Well, that’s what you get when you partner Tim Hamilton and Johan Paulik together, two energetic celestrial bodies that explode when they collide into one another. This scene has such an undeniable element of play about it that you find yourself smiling at the same time you’re getting turned on. That’s not something I’ve minded at all since I’ve started watching Bel Ami’s films/scenes. Their scene from Coverboys (2001) was such a joy to watch. I’m not entirely sure but I believe this was the first scene I saw with Tim Hamilton and I adored his energy and playfulness during sex. He and Johan were a perfect match and watching them play off each other was a total delight.
To celebrate this playfulness I couldn’t help but chose this track from Etienne Daho, Mon Manage A Moi taken from the Irreversible movie soundtrack. I’ve been wanting to use this song for a while but never the right opportunity came up. I’m glad to see I was able to find a use for this charming song. French is after all, the language of love and who speaks it the best: Bel Ami!
