Sex-Positive and Feminist Friendly Porn

Sex-positive and feminist-friendly porn is not necessarily porn made by women or even marketed to women – it simply takes women into account as viewers and presents sex as something pleasurable for everyone involved. Pornographers aim to treat the stars of the films well rather than exploiting them. Many performers have complete control over their scenes which results in a truer picture of real eroticism, something that is often missing in mainstream porn. Sex-positive porn also features diverse body types, races and gender fluidity, allowing viewers to find something that suits their specific preferences and ideals.

Production Companies

Abby Winters **

Features more “conventional” looking women without much variation in race or body type. This site is popular in the mainstream, but does feature a more “natural” feel – pubic hair, no fake breasts, minimal make up, no special outfits. They offer three types of videos: girls masturbating solo, girls masturbating together, and girls having sex with each other.

Bleu Productions**

Fetish and BDSM films produced by filmmaker Maria Beatty. Very artistic, high quality films that explore a wide range of fetishes. Bondage, spanking, tickling, teasing, foot worship, strap-on sex, latex, leather and medical play are all featured. These films feature predominately white, cisgender women.

 

Blue Artichoke Films

Blue Artichoke Films is a small group of film enthusiasts dedicated to making artistic, unusual erotic films that portray sexuality in an emotionally realistic way. Whether documentary, fiction, or experimental, Blue Artichoke films borrow from traditional film languages and styles to represent sexuality in new ways.

 

Candida Royalle Films (Femme Productions)*

Candida Royalle is widely recognized as the first porn producer to make movies specifically for women and couples. Her work is considered “softer” porn that focuses a lot on sensuality and female pleasure, as well as romance. Great for those who are nervous viewing porn or individuals who want more of a story line. No close up “insertion” shots and no rough sex play. These films feature mostly white, straight couples, though there are some that do include people of color (such as “Caribbean Heat”) in non-tokenizing way.

 

Comstock Films

“Real people, real life, real sex” is how these films are described. They each feature one couple and they are interviewed documentary style. These are usually sweet, loving videos and show lots of shots of how each couple actually gets it on. Though there are few films produced by Comstock, they feature a nice variety of relationships and ages!

Good Dyke Porn**

Created by feminist pornographer BrenRyder, GoodDykePorn features real amateur, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and queer sex. Once the cameras start rolling, the performers are in complete control of what they want to happen, which creates films that showcase the authentic sexualities of real dykes who identify as lesbian, queer, bisexual, transgender, butch, femme, in-between and/or other.

 

Good Releasing

Their two main lines of films are ReelQueerProductions (“Documenting authentic, edgy, queer sex and culture with relevant, intelligent films inclusive of the many sexualities that identify as queer:) and HeartcoreFilms (“Offering artistic alternatives to formulaic features with films by independent artists with fresh, diverse content”). Made by Good Vibrations company, Good Releasing showcases up and coming independent pornographers. April Flores, Dylan Ryan, and Madison Young are part of their team. A diverse cast, featuring a wide variety of bodies and behaviors, so there is a lot from which to choose! Lots of artistic flair in these films, especially with the film DangerousCurves.

Juicy Pink Box**

Their slogan is “lesbian sex with cinematic luster” and it shows; their films as well as the website show a clear eye for design. The website was made by and for queer women who wanted porn that found a middle-ground between “mainstream gay-for-pay porn” made by/for men and “dyke porn” that was more on the extreme side. Sensual videos and beautiful cinematography set Juicy Pink Box apart, and it doesn’t hurt that they have a star-studded cast on their side, too! Though the majority of the people in their lineup are cisgender women, there are some trans and genderqueer folks on their roster as well.

Lust Films*

Unsatisfied with the way she was seeing women portrayed in porn, Erika Lust set out to make films that spoke to her own values, lifestyles and sexuality. She makes beautiful, artsy films that use porn as a tool for education, excitement and pleasure. Her films place importance on every detail from the clothes and underwear to fantasies, situations and scenarios. Most of her films feature white, cisgender folks in a variety of pairings. Many films are available to watch online with a membership to LUST Cinema. If you want to get a quick taste of some of her work, you can watch the shortHandcuffsforf reeon Vimeo.

As Courtney herself describes it, they bring us “the best in indie porn, alt porn, and queer porn made by ladies, artists, queers, porn stars, trans folks, feminists, real couples, sexy men, smart women, kink experts, and more.”

Padded Kink

Featuring real, curvaceous women (many of whom are white, but the website does feature some women of color), Padded Kink covers bondage, discipline, and sadomasochism, as well as “softer” kinks and fetishes. The site aims to show that “ladies of all sizes can be kinky and beautiful!”

Pink & White Productions **

Production company of Shine Louise Houston. According to their site, “Pink & White Productions creates adult entertainment that exposes the complexities of queer sexual desire. Taking inspiration from many different sources, Pink & White is dedicated to producing sexy and exciting images that reflect today’s blurred gender lines and fluid sexualities.” They are best known for creating the CrashPadseries which features queer porn of all stripes. The performers have sex the way they want to and each week the site is updated with a new episode. The Crash Pad Series includes “real sex, real orgasms, real sweat, real bodily fluids, real laughter” and is “so utterly natural that the fact it’s being filmed seems nearly  incidental.

Sweetheart Video**

More mainstream, all girl on girl action. They only cast women who identify as lesbian or bisexual women in their day-to-day life (vs. “gay for pay” models). Many of their videos involve fantasy scenarios/locations, such as sex with the babysitter, hooking up with a hitchhiker, naughty sex in the office, and games of truth or dare. While the majority of their models are white women, there is definitely some diversity within the folks they cast in terms of race, age, and body type. If you peruse their models page, you’ll see some heavy-hitters in the sex-positive/queer porn arena, such as Nina Hartley, Dylan Ryan, Syd Blakovich, April Flores, Drew Deveaux, and Madison Young.

Sweetsinner Videos*

More mainstream, cisgender/hetero focused films. Made by the same people who make Sweetheart Video, so again, they create videos that discuss many folks’ taboo fantasies (sleeping with daughter’s boyfriend, the hot foreign exchange student, the babysitter, etc.).

 

 

Trannywood Pictures**

As much as Trannywood Pictures is about porn, it’s also about safer sex education. Their goal is to bring together a diversity of trans as well as other queer men. Their models are men in different stages of transition (including those who don’t want or plan to take hormones or get any surgery), thus many different bodies are represented. The small San-Francisco based company also prides itself on showcasing safer sex within a harm reduction model, which involves people making informed decisions on what they do (using barriers, getting tested, etc.) and lowering harm instead of just stopping certain behaviors altogether.

Independent Pornographers

Petra Joy*

Female pleasure is the focus in these films. There are no acts portrayed that could be considered “degrading” (cumming on faces, forced fellatio, extreme anal). Mostly hetero films that show a variety of both male and female body types. Men are not cast based on the size of their penises, but on their ability to pleasure women.

Erotic Red

Erotic Red is a site that features females of all shapes and sizes masturbating while menstruating. There are only 18 models listed, with little representation of a variety of races.

I Feel Myself likes to explore the intersection of pornography, erotica, art, and sex. IFM is dedicated to “real women masturbating and having real orgasms.” The site prioritizes considering sexual media on an aesthetic level, and strives to present the depth of sexual experiences.

Users can find video diaries and profiles of the women featured in videos, and also participate in a site-specific forum. The site is updated five times a week, and allows for anyone to submit themselves to their artful, erotic project.

There are almost 5,000 contributors, and the site is still updated daily. While there is little room for men on this site, the folios and archives are impressive, and the fact that this organization has been operating for ten years with the same ethical focus (that all contributors’ folios are handled impartially and respectfully, and that models are paid well for their work), is admirable.

VegPorn

VegPorn is one of the only sites that showcases porn featuring vegans and vegetarians.  The website is rarely updated, and the most recent additions were in 2010. It is unique in that the site is based on “lifestyle/ethical” choices, versus a focus on types of bodies. The site offers “titillating tofu eaters of all shapes and genders,” and while the site offers various representations of gender and gender expression, viewers might see only a couple representations of body types and races within the pool of vegan/vegetarian models.

Heavenly Spire

Gentlemen Handling

genthandlingThis website features erotic photos and videos of cisgender men masturbating. GMH aims to represent men masturbating in a different light than that of mainstream pornography. The producers use introductory videos and profiles so that the viewer can get to know the man that is sharing himself and his sensuality. Men in a variety of lights and spaces: masturbating in their own home, interacting with an intimate partner, or in a fantastical reverie land. Each man that is featured has contributed his ideas and personality to the shoot, which helps the creators present the “human-ness and individuality” of each of the men featured on this website. While GHM does a lovely job portraying masturbation in a more sensuous light than mainstream pornography, it should be noted that there is little variation in race or body type.

Unfortunately, Gentleman Handling has suspended production of new content as of May 2013, but still has archives of high-definition and high-resolution erotica and artwork that can be accessed and enjoyed.
