Figgis' Sexy Ad

Director MIKE FIGGIS has shot a sexy eight-minute advertisement for lingerie label Agent Provocateur - but insists pornography revolts him.

The LEAVING LAS VEGAS film-maker, whose ad TIED UP AT THE OFFICE will hit the internet on 8 February (06), claims modern X-rated film stars don't even look as if they are having fun.

He tells, "It's very apparent that cruelty has crept into the porn world. Most of the actors look as if they really don't like women or certainly don't like f**king them.

"The women just seem very contrived in their submissiveness. The act of sex itself comes across as something quite repugnant to both parties."
