In the words of porn star Annie Sprinkle, "The answer to bad porn isn't no porn. It's to try and make better porn." Thankfully, there are filmmakers doing just that - creating movies that are empowering for the performers, and the audience.
In the last few years the "feminist porn" movement has really taken off. The Feminist Porn Awards is celebrating its ninth year, and the Feminist Porn Conference is becoming an annual event (which the sisters are excited to attend this year!) What constitutes feminist porn? It has a focus on authentic pleasure, women are involved in the production, and the performers are paid a fair wage. If you've written off porn because you've only ever seen mainstream films that turned you off (literally), today's video is for you.
Many of the films we recommend, such as Erika Lust's Life Love Lust, have trailers which allow you to get a sense of the different styles (including how different they are from mainstream porn).
Kim & Amy Sedgwick love to discuss sex, periods, and all the other things we're not supposed to talk about. The co-founders of Red Tent Sisters, they've been featured in every major Canadian news outlet and have become a trusted resource for people seeking natural (effective!) birth control, a more joyful sex life, and an empowered journey to motherhood. .
