Petra was delighted to be honoured with the first-ever Porna Award this weekend in Amsterdam. The awards were organised by Dusk TV, the only porn TV channel in the world aimed at women.
The all-female Dusk panel voted “Room Service” – from A Taste Of Joy – as their favourite short film on the channel.
Petra says: “On behalf of my lovely performers and fantastic crew, I’d like to thank everyone involved at Dusk TV for this award. What makes this especially great is that this is voted for by an all-female audience, and this is who I make my films for so they’re what matters the most to me.”
More info on Dusk TV is available on their Facebook page.
Petra was recently interviewed by the BBC on the subject of ethical porn. This will be broadcast as part of this Sunday’s “Men’s Hour” on Radio 5 at 21:00, and will be available on iPlayer soon after.
Petra’s film Room Service (from A Taste Of Joy) has been nominated for an award by the Dusk panel. Room Service continues to be rated highly in the Dusk charts. Other nominees are Candida Royalle, Jennifer Lyon Bell and many other female porn directors. The Porna award will go to the erotic film that is most popular with the Dusk panel. The award will be given to the winner on the 7th September in Amsterdam.
This Friday (26th July), Petra will be a guest on Tristan Taormino’s sexy radio show Sexoutloud. Tristan and Petra discuss a wide range of subjects including taboos in mainstream porn, the rise of alternative porn and the female perspective in feminist porn.
Tristan is no stranger to Petra’s work, having featured on some of the Her Porn compilations herself, so it promises to be an informed and fascinating discussion between two feminist porn directors.

Petra says: “I make my erotic films for women, so if the audience votes my film as the hottest film it makes me, my performers and crew jump for joy!”
Thanks to Dusk TV for shooting and posting this video about Petra winning the feminist porn award of Hottest Vignette Film for A taste of Joy. How funny that the prize envelope was sticky!
