An indie rock band wants to make a music video with your sex tapes

The Dutch band DI-RECT is making a music video out of crowdsourced homemade porn.

Would you let anyone see your homemade sex tapes? Probably not if you had a gun to your head, right? Well, the Dutch band DI-RECT is betting that a few exhibitionist types out there will be more willing. They’re crowdsourcing sex tapes to make a music video for their song “You & I.”

“The song You & I is all about intimacy, that moment when it all comes down to body language,” the band’s project website says. “When every word is one too many and a single touch is the thing you’d die for. We’d like to make the ultimate love tape, a visual experiment with real people, real love.”

The only requirements for the tapes? The stars of the video have to be older than 18, and they have to have exclusive ownership rights to their content. (You can’t send in “Screeched,” or any of your other favorite celebrity sex tapes.) The most important requirement: Your entry “has to be about true love.”

According to art director Omar Kbiri, the concept for the video was inspired by this TEDTalk by tech entrepreneur Cindy Gallop, the founder of the “real world sex” website Make Love Not Porn. “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,” he told The Next Web.

If you’re feeling brave enough to become a Dutch sex star, you can upload your best homemade porn directly to the “You & I” website. Or, alternatively, you can train yourself to use Final Cut Pro and make your very own NSFW music video, for your eyes only.
