Share your ecstasy
All submissions accepted earn US$200 plus a 30 day Agony subscription
So you'd like to share your Agony with the world? Come and join the band of radicals who make Beautiful Agony the sexiest place in the known universe.
Our standards are high, which means, straight up, no web cams or phone cams. You'll need to record your agony using a digital camcorder (preferably Hi Def) and upload or post us the footage as it came from your camcorder (eg. Mini DV tape, Mini DVD), or you can copy the footage to your computer and burn us a disc as a CD or DVD data file. We need the RAW footage please, don't compress, resize or edit it.
Please submit two takes. Make them different. Do it alone, do it with friends or do it with your lover - we don't mind, and we don't need to know.
Frame the shot like you see on the site - full face, no nudity, preferably from a point of view above (or in front of) the nose. An easy way to achieve this is to set up a tripod and lie underneath. Depending on your equipment and where you put the tripod, this might give you an upside-down shot; that's fine, we can flip it in editing. You may sit in a chair and set the camera in front of you, or if you prefer to be on your tummy, put the camera in front of your face, but think about where your head might move during the Agony.
Make sure you have good light. Daylight from a nearby window is best. If you're using a lamp, it should be to one side, close to you but not too close to the camera, so the light is graded across your face. It will need to be a bright lamp and set the white balance manually to "indoor" (all camcorders have this control). If you try and film at night with just a room light, the quality won't be good enough to publish.
Please don't have any music or the TV playing as it creates a copyright problem. Besides, Agony is an experience for the ears as well as the eyes, so try and keep the background noise down. Switch off any appliances that make noise, like computers, fans, aquariums, fridges. Close the window.
Capture the warm up, and the cool down. Let us see all of your idiosyncrasies, personal habits and rituals, but we're only interested in reality, not performances, impressions, or exaggerations. Don't do anything on camera that you don't do anyway.
Let the video run on at the end. You can talk to the camera before, during or after, if you like. Take as long as you need, we'll edit the footage for length.
After you've done your Agony, we need your Confessions. If you haven't been able to view this part of the site, it's just how it sounds - you spill all your sexy secrets on camera. You can get a friend to put you through the juicer, or just go it alone; we'd like to see all of you for this part, but please keep your clothes on!

, but don't feel constrained by these questions. Just give us all your dirty laundry, and when that's done, give us somebody else's. 15 minutes or more is good. Keep the context of the question in your answer, as the viewer doesn't hear the questions.
Every Agony contributor is paid a fee before their video goes up, provided the contribution is accepted. To be accepted you just have to make sure the Release Form is correctly filled out, you include a legible copy of government issued photo ID that shows you're over 18, and the technical standards are met.
