    Is Porn Empowering?

    "Can porn be empowering for women?"

    That’s the question being asked a lot this week, prompted by the Women’s Hour debate which took place on Sunday, asking this question. I was not able to attend the debate unlike people who have blogged about it already, but I wanted to add my thoughts on the matter.

    Very simply, I believe that yes, porn can be empowering for women. I’m not going to argue that all porn is empowering for all women, because I don’t believe that is the case at all, there is a lot of porn which is problematic for both female performers and viewers. But I believe that I, and a lot of other women can gain a lot from watching porn, feminist porn in particular.

    Bigger is Good

    This is another one of those posts where I start by saying “when I started producing porn, I wasn’t doing it to make a statement”. I started producing porn because it seemed like an enjoyable way for me to make a living. But I am still realising that the content I make is radical on many levels. The world is not going to change based on my work alone, but I still think that what I’m doing will help out in making a change.

    I’ve always set out to show the world what goes on in my head - sharing my fantasies and allowing others to see that they are not alone. But these days, it seems that even showing my body is radical.

    I’m fat. I used to be skinny, but now I’m not. But it seems that along my way between the two points, a large group of people have also decided that I’ve also gone from being beautiful, to being ugly, and in doing so am no longer deserving of love, care, or respect.

    Celebrations Are Called For

    Earlier this year, I spent a week working almost non-stop. I messed up my sleep cycles and generally put too much pressure on myself. Well, it turns out that it was all worthwhile in the end. I've been nominated at the Feminist Porn Awards, for my film The Agency, and I’m so ridiculously excited by this, for so many reasons.

    Firstly, this is the first film I’ve ever submitted to a festival, and I really had absolutely no idea what the judges were looking for! When you know what does well at a festival, it’s easy to tailor your film to that. Without that knowledge, I simply had to edit the film in the way I felt was best, and hoped that the judges would like it as well.
