Ladies, We Have Found The Solution To Bad Porn…

It all starts with one woman – Erika Lust. Her name has been gaining steam lately, partially due to her recent TED Talk and partially due to her brilliant porn site XConfessions. Lust comes from an academic background in human rights and feminism, receiving a degree in Gender Studies before moving to her current residence of Barcelona. After recognizing that mainstream porn sucks and understanding the difficulty that plagues women who wish to view porn but have no desire for the repulsion that accompanies male-centric smut, Lust set out to begin making adult films that would get her off. The result? Indie films cast with young, attractive, and realistic actors engaging in kinky yet down-to-earth sex.

When I first heard the term “feminist” porn, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. Despite my stance as a firm and proud feminist, I was unfamiliar with what feminist porn could possibly be like. Would Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s speech be looping on repeat in the background while some bearded dude proposes to do nothing but please her for the next twenty minutes? Would it turn out to be a Portlandia skit with sex? Would it even be arousing? I am hear to report to those of you who may be raising similar questions this – it is like watching an episode of Girls where everyone is hot and engaging in enjoyable sex, no one is complaining, Lena Dunham is nowhere to be found, and Shosanna has finally stopped talking. So, it is basically a sexual utopia.

The best part of XConfessions is that each film is based on a user’s confession. Once a month, Erika will pick her favorite confession and make it into a film. And, nearly all of these confessions are pretty much universal fantasies – car sex, threesomes with a hot couple from Barcelona, a hook-up in the closet of your workplace with a virginal colleague. And for the more obscure fetishes? There’s a place for your fantasies too, as proven with this weird Mad Men-esque porn.
