What a great evening! We had a full house at our erotic celebration, Adventures In Intimacy. Missed it? See the video & photos here.

“Blue Artichoke Films Presents: Adventures In Intimacy”

 

We at Blue Artichoke Films are still smiling after our wonderful “Blue Artichoke Films presents: Adventures In Intimacy” event on Friday. We can’t believe we sold out — nearly 400 of you! And given the torrential rain that night, we especially appreciated you showing up. It was an honor sharing our vision of the new Blue Artichoke Films erotic platform and mission with you, and it felt great to hear the thoughtful conversations among audience members afterward in the bar. That’s so much what we wanted to achieve with this event — inspiration and fun discussion.

 

Special guests at Adventures In Intimacy

 

We were thrilled to be able to bring together artists and experts from around the world in this fresh approach to sexuality, illustrated with their personal stories and plenty of sexy film clips.

 

  • Stoya (USA) is an internationally renowned porn performer, model, writer, and artist who gives a voice to porn performers and sex workers. She is the author of Philosophy, Pussycats & Porn, and co-founded her platform ZeroSpaces as an online erotic magazine integrating her writing with erotic photographs and movies.
  • Ellen Laan (NL) is a clinical sexologist and psychologist who is one of the world’s leading experts on female pleasure. Lately her activism brings her to the Dutch music festival Lowlands, where she educates young people about sexuality. She is the co-author of two books, “Sex!” and “Body Book for Power Girls.”
  • Bishop Black (UK, DE), performance artist, porn performer, and educator, confronts the stereotypes that operate within pornography and explores his own identity as a queer black man. He stars in the new Berlin-based adult sex education collective, Sex School, which aims to show the spectrum of sex in an explicitly relatable and informative way.
  • Jennifer Lyon Bell (NL, USA) is an award-winning erotic filmmaker, teacher, and curator. With Blue Artichoke Films, she mixes arthouse cinema with hot explicit sex to create erotic fiction films and documentaries that illuminate the riveting, intimate, and sometimes delightfully awkward side of sex.

 

Video of  Adventures In Intimacy

 

Did you miss getting into our sold-out event, Adventures in Intimacy? Luckily we livestreamed it, and captured the video for YouTube so you can enjoy it whenever you want.

 

Due to YouTube’s policies, the images and video are “safe for work” — but rest assured they are plenty spicy!

 

The evening includes videos with Stoya, Bishop, Kali Sudhra, Sadie Lune, Parker Marx, Lina Bembe, Mickey Mod, Vex Ashley, Four Chambers, Clayton Cubitt Poppy Sanchez, Helen Betty Corday AnnaBelle Lee, and Joost Smoss.

 

We also premiered the new trailer of our upcoming film Wild Card — join our Blue Artichoke Films Newsletter for an update as soon as the full film is available.
