What are the 5 key myths separating feminism and porn? In "Feminist Fantasies," Jennifer will show beautiful porn and erotic film clips to prove that sex film and feminism not only don't conflict, but enrich each other.

Pinched: Sex Love & Countercultures is a unique series of mostly-English lectures and performances created to highlight counterculture movements in sexuality, love and porn. Jennifer is hosting an evening to illuminate five key of the issues in the relationship of feminism to porn.

 

From the program: “Erotic filmmaker and curator Jennifer Lyon Bell will address the changing relationship of pornography to love, personal politics, and authentic sexuality, showing clips from several recent erotic/pornographic film. This evening will consider the possibility of female-friendly and feminist pornography. Does it exist, and if so, can men make this too?”

 

“Feminist Fantasies,” like all the Pinched events, takes place at the awesome pop cathedral Paradiso in Amsterdam. Special thanks to Pinched creator Marije Janssen for putting on a thoughtful and diverse festival that brings together, in the words of sex blogger Audacia Ray, “European pornographers, artists, cultural theorists, and fun loving sex and culture nerds.”
