The Best Feminist Porn and Erotica

booksIn this guest post, Los Angeles-based sex therapist Moushumi Ghose, co-host of The Sex Talk web series, recommends some great female-centric porn and erotic options. For more feminist-friendly sex advice, join us at The Pleasure Chest in LA July 10, where we’ll be leading a panel discussion and Q&A with Ghose.

Not all porn is created equal. Feminist porn and erotica is a genre that caters to the feminine senses of lust sensuality, eroticism and sex, drawing from the emotion centers of pleasure but are for men and women alike. On a deeper level porn may be considered feminist because the actors are treated fairly, with respect and with equality in terms of wages, gender roles, consent, beauty, pleasure, and more. I have devised a list of my favorite feminist porn movies (and the sites where they can be accessed) as well as some of my favorite erotica from the last year. Please note that there is so much well-made erotica and porn out there made by women that this list is by no means all inclusive, nor is it in any particular order.

 

  1. Lust Cinema presents Cabaret Desire: A Swedish director who relocated to Barcelona, Erika Lust has created her most personal and sensual film to date. Erika Lust and Lust Cinema are committed to incorporating women’s voices into adult entertainment, and this movie is a sensual delicacy.
  2. Lesbian Curves by Courtney TroubleFor women by women, this sexy film explores the far reaches of girl-on-girl sensuality and sexuality.
  3. I.M. in Love, available on BrightDesire.comI am a sucker for sexy nerd stories, so this nears the top of my list.
  4. Best Women’s Erotica 2013 by Violet Blue: This compilation of erotica, selected and edited by Violet Blue, is playful, smart, and of course sexy—told from female perspectives, these stories highlight female pleasure in every story.
  5. Dr. Carol Queen: GushThis is more like a tutorial than it is a story, but nonetheless it is highly informative and features an all-star cast of sexy feminist XXX actors.
  6. Petra Joy and Candida Royale’s Female FantasiesCandida Royale is the pioneer when it comes to feminist porn. She continues to support and produce excellent feminist porn and in this film has teamed up with director Petra Joy for a tasteful, sometimes humorous, and intimate film.
  7. Simone Sinna’s Were Devil’s CurseDid you like the Sookie Stackhouse series (which the HBO series True Blood was based on)? Well, if so, you’ll dig Simone Sinna’s erotic stories about sexy were-devils, ghost vampires, glamour, glitz, and hot sex.
  8. Incredible Girl: I saw this sexy short film at a film festival in Los Angeles. The entire story is set to music and takes place at a sexually charged club. The movie focuses on two extreme individuals, an innocent-seeming, shy girl and the club diva who tries to seduce her.
  9. Expert Guide to Female Ejaculation by Tristan Taormino: This is another sex instructional, this one brought to you by Tristan Taormino, feminist sex educator and adult film director.
  10. Wicked Pictures Presents How to Be a Better LoverThis is not directed by a woman, but Wicked Pictures actors say that Wicked has always had a feminist outlook when it comes to film production. This sex-educational video talks about being a better lover and is narrated by a man, but still will appeal to many feminists, men and women alike.
