I have recently been sent information from an Adult Pay TV channel regarding their programming criteria. It is a fascinating read that makes clear just how sexist the porn industry still is and how reluctant it is to embrace innovative content.
So, Fifty Shades hits the cinemas this weekend. I am not sure what all the fuss is about – as if there are not loads of other genuinely erotic, exciting and kinky films out there. Some of them hard-core porn, some of them are classified as soft erotica. Who cares as long as they turn you on? It has not always been as easy as it is now to find a huge variety of kinky, creative films. In 2004 I started shooting my own porn because I could hardly find any porn that featured female fantasies that turned me on. When someone asks me today which films I find hot or can recommend, I am spoilt for choice – the list of films is getting longer all the time. These are some of my all time favourites, some classic and some current films that I enjoy watching over and over again or that just recently left a big impression on me. This is not a descending list – I love all of these films equally in different ways, depending on which mood I am in.
