Cock Tease from Wolf Hudson

Feminist porn is a growing industry, but there are still lots of questions about what is means to make and watch feminist porn. I found a guide to help you navigate the porny waters. Here’s a breakdown.

1. Forget What You Think You Know

Feminist porn isn’t just for women. It can be enjoyed by lots of different folks because it offers up so much variety in what you see. You see people of all different body types, colors, ability and more. You might find you’re into something you never would have found watching/looking at one genre of porn.

Carlyle Jansen, owner of feminist adult store Good For Her and founder of the Feminist Porn Awards explains: “People think we’re the Lesbian Porn Awards or the Man Hating Porn Awards; they think feminism is passé. We want women’s, men’s, and trans perspectives; we’re not just looking for what women want.”

2. Consult the Experts!

There are already books, awards and even conferences dedicated to talking about feminist porn. You can also take a look at the annual Feminist Porn Awards for some ideas on where to start in your adventure.

3. Check in With the Performers Themselves

Performers and directors in feminist porn are very accessible via social media. If you have questions about what you see and what makes it ethical or feminist, just ask them.

4. Learn More About It

Check out the Feminist Porn Book and hopefully soon, an academic journal devoted to porn studies.

5. Vote With Your Dollar

You get what you pay for. And this is some high quality stuff! Instead of going to the candy isle when you go to the porn grocery store, pick some up fruits and vegetables too! These people are making porn we can learn from. Most porn doesn’t have that quality. This is porn that talks about or models consent and communicating about desires.

I challenge you to watch this video and not be just a little turned on.

This is the Stronic Eins from Fun Factory. In a nut shell, it’s kind of like a fucking machine you can keep in your bedside table.

You can check out a review of the Stronic Eins here.

Porn vs. Erotic film


In October 2013 I attended an inspiring conference for the Journalism and Women’s Symposium (JAWS). The keynote speaker for our conference was feminist activist Gloria Steinem. I very much enjoyed hearing her speak and was inspired by much of what she said.

One aspect of her speech I disagreed with was the idea that all porn is bad and unhealthy. Of course I understand there are LOTS of bad porn movies out there, but I don’t think you should discredit all porn. When I asked her about her opinion of feminist porn, she said the root word for “porn” was associated with the idea of the objectification of female sexuality, which makes porn anti-feminist.

While I respect her wanting to advocate against objectifying female sexuality, I think root-word argument is a moot point. How many words do we use on a daily basis without understanding their root word? Porn isn’t always synonymous with material that degrades and objectifies women. Porn can be hardcore and feminist, in my opinion.

That is one of many reasons why I am so excited that Erika Lust, and many other production companies are making sexy movies for us all to enjoy.

Erika Lust is an independent adult filmmaker. Her movies feature sexy, consensual shorts with people and stories you can relate to. Not to mention many of her films are in Spanish. Orgasms and cultural exploration go well together.

In the video below, Molly Adler of selfservetoys.com asks Erika Lust about how she distinguishes her movies from most porn one might find on the Internet for free. Erika Lust probably deals with this issue frequently and I definitely enjoyed her response.

BREAKING: Women like porn too! And Pat Robertson is confused about that.


This is one of those videos that I watch, and I’m not sure whether to feel enraged at the way Pat Robertson and his co-host, Kristi Watts, conceptualize and discuss women, or to laugh at his utter confusion at the idea that women are sexual human beings, just like men (or boys, as he refers to them).

So I just decided not to let this very confused elderly gentleman get under my skin, and instead I’ll try to clear up some misconceptions Robertson seems to have about women and humans in general.
