Laterveer’s “Women & Sex” book embraces alternative porn like Jennifer’s

Posted on March 31, 2017

By Jennifer Lyon Bell

Author Maartje Laterveer devotes a chunk of her new book "Women And Sex: From Mother-Love to Sex Robot" talking about the freeing and enjoyable power of alternative and female-made porn. Her interview with Jennifer covers sex ed, shame, BDSM and kink discovery, and, of course, feminist sex-positivity.

Maartje Laterveer’s new book

 

Thanks to Maartje Laterveer for including lots of our interview together in her new book: “Vrouwen en Seks: Van Moederliefde tot Seks Robot” (Women And Sex: From Mother-Love to Sex Robot”).

 

She discusses at length how myself and some of my colleagues  — Erika Lust, Paulita Pappel — are trying to uproot sexual shame by showing positive, ethical, sexy imagery around sex. One nice quote from  Laterveer states:

 

Jennifer: “Trust your sexuality”

“This is the mission of female-friendly porn: To free women from the harness that they — consciously or unconsciously — are often trapped within. ‘Of course I want my films to be fun to watch,’ says Bell, ‘but I have a goal. I want people to trust their sexuality.  For women in particular, I want to send the message that they are not alone, that they are free to experiment, that they are free to expand their boundaries. I think many people are enormously relieved to discover that they are kinky, and that they can be submissive and yet strong at the same time.”
