    This is such a Dutch story. Netherlands-based band DI-RECT is crowdsourcing footage for its new video by asking people to upload their sex tapes.

    The project is billed as ‘the ultimate love tape, a visual experiment with real people, real love,’ and art director Omar Kbiri is keen for it not to be seen as something smutty. “I was mainly inspired by Cindy Gallop’s TED Talk on Make Love, Not Porn,” he tells us. “For us, it’s very important to create a video clip in the end that really is able to communicate true moments of love between lovers towards the audience.”

    If you’re a couple aged over 18, are truly in love and like the idea of this project that could only have been born in the Netherlands, you can upload your video via the project’s website.
