Let’s make a porno.
But let’s make it different!
Let’s make an indie film.

Introducing Erika Lust.
The prolific award-winning, ethical, adult filmmaker.

Based in Barcelona, born in 1977 in Sweden, Erika Lust studied political sciences, feminism and gender studies. Tired of chauvinistic and tacky mainstream porn, she burst into the adult industry in 2004, with the indie short film The Good Girl – a humorous statement of principles.

The immediate success of this first attempt encouraged her to pursue a film career. Erika has since then directed three multi-awarded erotic films: Five Hot Stories for Her, Life Love Lust and Cabaret Desire. She also directed the experimental documentary Barcelona Sex Project and wrote several books.

In 2013 Erika Lust launched the innovative project XConfessions

A collection of crowdsourced explicit short films with high cinematic production values. XConfessions is featured in big media all over the world and establishes Erika as a filmmaker with great skills to portray human nature through the narrative of desire, and a unique talent to merge eroticism with witty comedy.
