Spanish Media Looks At Porn For Women

Spanish porn for womenA couple of weeks ago I was interviewed by a journalist from the Spanish media site 20 Minutos. Their article about porn for women is finally out – available here.

Unfortunately it’s all in Spanish and – curse my monolingual Aussie heritage – I don’t really know what it says. Except that the photos let me know it’s got comments by Spanish erotic filmmaker Erika Lust.

Babelfish to the rescue.

The article says that porn for women is growing and that there’s a bunch of festivals happening celebrating that fact. Also that the Swedish have recently funded feminist porn, in the form of the Dirty Diaries short films. Erika Lust talks about women in erotic film having control of the situation and not merely being there for the male gaze. The story also says Candida Royalle got there first and does well.

As for me… well, I wrote at least two pages worth of ramblings in my email interview. Unfortunately I only got about 2 lines in the article, pointing out that porn for women is doing well when a lot of the porn industry is failing. Ah well, I’m pleased to just be involved.

I think I will publish the rest of my reply on the blog tomorrow.

  1. Good article. Love that the ministry of culture subsidized the film – and love the response to the conservatives who protested –

    “continuamente se financian largometrajes sexistas o violentos con fondos p├║blicos”

    “they continually finance films that are sexist and violent with public funds”
