What is your definition of feminist porn?

There are different definitions for the words feminist, porn, and “feminist porn”, which are often biased on social, cultural or scientific grounds.

I mean, what makes a porno feminist, what are the criteria?

According to Alison Lee, manager of Good for Her in Toronto, “a woman must have been involved in the production, writing, or direction of the work; or the work must convey genuine female pleasure; or the piece must expand the boundaries of sexual representation and challenge mainstream porn stereotypes”.

I think it’s important that women are involved in the making of indie porn, because feminist porn is not only about the content, it is also about the emancipation of women and about them being able to give life to their ideas and fantasies as sexual beings like all of us, without feeling shame or prejudice. The porn industry needs women to get out there and show the world a new way of experiencing sex.

Chanelle Galant, organizer of the Feminist Porn Awards, says it “makes women and couples feel good about themselves and about sex.” And I totally agree with her. If we had to sum up feminist porn in one sentence, I think that would be it. Being able to watch and enjoy a type of porn that makes you feel good, that makes want to explore your sexuality and your partner’s.

I personally think it’s important for the characters to be real. Sex is not only technical, biological, it’s a connection, whether it’s a one night stand or committed relationship. There needs to be emotions, intensity, laughters… All these little things that make sex unforgettable.

So, what would be YOUR definition of feminist porn? Why do YOU watch it?
