Everyone who knows my films is aware how much I love to show female pleasure – especially women receiving great head, and guys who love giving it. Why is this so important to me and other feminist pornographers? Well, we don’t see it anywhere else. Cunnilingus in mainstream porn is usually done quickly and badly, if at all. It’s shown for about a minute as a warm-up for the main act: penetration. Fellatio, on the other hand, can go on for ages and is often the main focus of the scene, or leading up to the culminating ‘cum-shot’, usually in the woman’s face. Continue reading
It must have taken a lot of courage for Angelina Jolie to announce to the public that she had undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of getting breast cancer. Recently she wrote a beautiful, candid piece for the New York Times called ‘My Medical Choice’, which described how she lost her own mother to the disease, and how, after testing positive for a defective gene called BRCA1 she learnt she had an 87% chance of developing it too, as well as a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. You can read it here.
She says she took the decision to undergo the surgery, reducing her risk of breast cancer to 5%, so that her six children would know that they won’t lose her to the same disease that she lost her mother to. The decision to go public with the news was to raise awareness of gene-testing so that other women potentially at risk would take the test and be able to make their own informed decision. In a world where the bodies of female celebrities are obsessively scrutinised, gossiped about and considered public property, Angelina Jolie is risking considerable invasions of personal privacy by sharing her experience.

A new show has been launched on Danish television. The idea of the show is that women walk on in a bathrobe, stand in front of two men, take their robe off and stand there silently, completely naked, while the men discuss, praise and disparage the various parts of their body. That’s it.
Blachman claims that he is doing the women a favour because ‘the female body thirsts for the words of a man’. I wonder what woman wouldn’t be positively throbbing at the thought of being gawped at and criticised by two such fine specimens of manhood?! Continue reading
“We are all part of, not separate from, nature. Thus all sex is ecosex!”
(Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth M. Stephens)
Earth Day has been and gone and many people were not even aware of it. We live on this amazing planet and take from it what we want, yet we do not protect, cherish or nurture it.
The longer I live, the more I love earth in all its breath-taking beauty, boundless variety, creative abundance and sensual richness. Time I spend in nature is time I feel most alive, happy and free. So I spend more and more time in woodlands, meadows and the sea. Continue reading
I was talking to a friend of mine the other day about how hard she’s finding her relationship. Part of the problem is that they’ve been together for quite a long time and are monogamous. He’s not interested in negotiating any other kind of relationship and, frankly, she’s starting to go a bit crazy! Having spent years having a lot of fun and enjoying polyamorous relationships before she met him, she decided she wanted something with more of an emotional connection and committed to an exclusive relationship. At first she enjoyed the sexual and emotional exclusiveness but now she feels she cannot be truly herself in this relationship any longer. Even though she loves him, she has some sexual needs that she cannot live out with her partner. He does not want her to live out her kinkier desires with other lovers and she finds it impossible to repress those desires any longer. Until recently she has been ‘paying’ for the emotional security that the relationship offers with her freedom, having had to neglect parts of her sexual self in order to keep him happy and the relationship going.
