Title E:Lust To Dust

by Maja Gehrig

Switzerland, September 2009

Two wooden dolls are having sex on a sandpaper. By constant change of the positions they sand themselves off by rubbing the floor. The mood varies between wrestling and amorous play. Finally the love act turns into a race against time.
