Light at the end of the tunnel

Dirty Diaries

Since Berlin, I’ve been flooded with press inquiries and have been running through the footage I shot there, including the Petra Joy Awards. I have been viewing and editing non-stop. So I have had no time to share my adventures in this blog until now but you can now view videos of my time in Berlin. The videos will take you behind the scenes and show you the wild and wonderful journey that took place that week. The videos are available on my YouTube channel right now.

Following the success of Her Porn Volume 1, I’m busy curating the second volume. Seeking out fellow feminist porn filmmakers is always a treat, and this installment promises to deliver another set of dynamic videos and amazing directors. Some of the filmmakers include Anna Brownfield from Australia with her fab indie film “The Band”, all of the winners of the Petra Joy Awards, Samantha Linton from Canada with “Man Of My Dreams” and many, many more. Most of the featured filmmakers are previously unpublished in Europe. The target release date is March 2010. If you haven’t seen Her Porn Volume 1, you can find it here.

I’m proud to announce that the Swedes are coming! I’m branching further out into distribution with “Dirty Diaries” (2009), a new Swedish feminist porn compilation made by women for women. I think Dirty Diaries will be a porno classic. Of course, it’s exciting to become a representative for other female directors. Distribution is a key issue – without it you can’t sell your films, make production costs back and finance more films. It took me almost two years until my first film “Sexual Sushi” got into the shops. Five years down the line I now have good contacts to buyers especially in the German-speaking countries. I am proud to be able to provide a service to up-and-coming female filmmakers that I wish were available to me when I was starting out. Like I trust Candida Royalle with the distribution of my film “Feeling it” in the States, Mia Engberg and the Swedish Film Institute are trusting me to exclusively distribute this work in German-speaking countries.

Mia found 12 female filmmakers to shoot what they felt was a feminist porno on their mobile phone cameras, and the result is exciting and inspirational. For couples and women, this is a treasure chest of erotic creativity, individuality, and variety. This release is a great way to get to know fresh, talented females who are sharing their erotic fantasies – without shame. The film will be available soon from my online shop. If you are interested in further information or placing an order, don’t hesitate to contact me at petra@petrajoy.com. Find out more about the “Dirty Diaries” at www.dirtydiaries.se.

I know it’s not yet December, but today I’ve taken the time to put my Christmas decorations up. As I have been flat out the last few months working 12 hour days and most Saturdays, I needed something to remind me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have only had 2 weeks of holidays in the last 24 months. The Christmas tree is my daily reminder that I just have to push through another few weeks before I can take a breathe and enjoy the holiday: a girls’ night-in with champagne in front of the open fireplace and a candle-lit hot tub session with my boyfriend – I long for all of that and more.

The mad rush towards Christmas is on. I hope you, like me, have a special reminder that there’s a holiday filled with warmth, love and joy just a few weeks away.
