Contemporary Pornography evening


In the amazing Amsterdam steampunk palace Mayer Manor where we shot Adorn, come enjoy a summer TENCLUB evening of sex-positive discussion about Contemporary Pornography, hosted by Hot Takes.

I’ll be talking about my filmmaking process, playing clips, and showing how porn can actually empower you.

Here’s more about the event from the organizers:


Discussion: “Why Should We Watch Porn?”


Porn: whether you like it or not, we’re all watching. As society evolves and more becomes available online, it is important for us to think about what it means today – why are we watching? What are we learning? Let’s address the messy questions around why exploring sex on the internet matters with the people who know best: the performers, directors, and researchers dedicating their lives to creating and understanding the value of porn today.

Join Hot Takes for this edition of sexTALKS at the Tenclub to take a look behind the scenes and explore why we should watch pornography in 2019.
