PORN FEMINISTS LIKE TO WATCH
The Feminist Porn Awards Celebrate 10 Sexy Years!
Toronto: Feminist porn challenges the stereotypes not only of mainstream productions but also breaks down stereotypes of what kinds of sex feminists like to watch. From mild to wild, straight, queer and/or trans, feminist porn is will be celebrating its tenth anniversary in Toronto April 15-17.
This internationally renowned awards event attracts leading directors, stars and fans from all across the globe. “Feminism is mainstream! From Beyoncé to Emma Watson to Joseph Gordon Levitt, feminism is no longer a fringe, man hating, uniform movement. Feminist pornographers are creating ethically-made, hot and diverse films.” says Carlyle Jansen, owner of Good For Her and founder of the Feminist Porn Awards.
For the last nine years, this festival has showcased alternative portrayals of eroticism and sensuality that will shatter assumptions about the porn aesthetic. Feminist porn is empowering women and men with a new level of sophistication and cinematography that is appealing to a more traditional porn audience.
