Commercial pornography gets pretty blase in this day and age where everyone has access to the internet.  25% of the internet use is for pornography according to Nielson ratings in 2010.  Mainstream porn sites generally mix and match among the following buffet of options; money shots, double penetration, ATM, blow jobs, passed out college girls, underage girls masturbating, bored and cheating MILFs, Asians, Latinas, Blacks, normal ‘amateur’ girls auditioning to become the next Jenna Jameson who somehow open their mouths, then legs, and end up in a gang bang.  Even before reaching the realm of zoophilia or pedophilia there are plenty of options that can satiate the sexual appetite of a modern web-surfer. 

Well, surprise! We actually found something you haven’t heard of, feminist porn.  Female sexual liberation through pornography?  As paradoxical as it may sound, Erika Lust braves into the porn industry as a feminist producer of adult films, making anti-porn feminists itch with moral eczema.

Erika Lust the winner of the Feminist Porn Awards just published ‘Good Porn: A Women’s Guide’ which discusses and argues that there is a form of pornography that is not offensive to women.  The first assumption that goes with anti-porn activists, is that they are also anti-sex but Erica begs to differ.  

It would be difficult to come to a concensus on an agreeable spectrum when it comes to sexuality. Erika highlights through her adult films that porn without deliberate humiliation or subordination can be arousing.  Her films do contain explicit imagery as well as elements of S&M like playful spanking in the form of power-role-playing.  Women are doing explicitly naughty things in her films and are willing to be dominated at times, a detail feminists will quickly point a finger towards.  The difference between Erika’s work and the dominant narrative porn is that the women have sexual agency.

According to mainstream pornography, all women look doe-eyed while choking on a viagra-induced-boner kneeling on the floor, being ripped and penetrated in all orifices, and smile while having cum shot in the eye.  Feminists give blow jobs too, but Erika’s case is that there are few alternatives to this kind of domination ritual.  Do women sit on men’s faces and force oral sex until suffocation and ask them to smile for the camera in full make-up?  Not as often as it happens the other way around. Even when it does, the salience lies in the subversive nature of it being a transgressive act rather than a reinforcement of true power.  She is not trying to arouse audiences by subordinating men, but simply providing more options for sexual expression.
