Pornhub to release Bella Thorne's Her and Him

Former Disney star Bella Thorne is releasing her BDSM-themed directorial debut Her and Him on Pornhub.

The Shake It Up star's short film features unsimulated intercourse and is described as "an ethereal Romeo and Juliet-themed tale of two lovers wrestling between dominance and submission". 

Thorne, who also starred in Big Love, Famous in Love and Assassination Nation, says her original idea was to make a "Christmas horror movie" - but she ended up taking the short in a very different direction.

"The process of shooting was very interesting, because we had real-life f**king on set, which I had never shot before," says Thorne in a promotional video.

"Also, this was my first short in general, so it was quite an interesting experience to have the first thing that I ever really fully directed have so much sex in it. It is quite a fun environment."

The official synopsis of Her and Him says it follows an "edgy twenty-something guy who stumbles upon a surprise text in his girlfriend's phone, interrupting their morning routine and spinning everything into an out-of-control sexually charged encounter".

Its cast is made up of porn stars Small Hands and Abella Danger, and it will have a world premiere at Germany's Oldenburg Film Festival before being released on Pornhub Premium.
