Empower Yourself Through DIY Porn

Empower through pornHave you ever watched porn and wanted to give it a try – or thought you could do better? Perhaps you’ve been turned off by the predictable offerings of mainstream porn – or perhaps you’ve struggled to find porn that reflects your political values? The porn industry has traditionally been tailored to the presumed desires of straight cisgender men, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Porn can be queer, woman-positive, trans-positive, fat-positive, age-positive and ethnically diverse. Porn can depict real world sex between genuine lovers, or it can express your wildest fantasies. Porn can be respectful, sincere, intimate, romantic, sensual, artistic, and everything it’s reputed not to be … But for porn like this to exist, someone has to make it.

Perhaps that someone is you.

This workshop is for people who want to have a go at making their own porn, but don’t know where to start. Perhaps you are a bit of an exhibitionist, and find the idea of being filmed exciting. Perhaps you have erotic stories to tell, or kinky fantasies you want to bring to life. Or perhaps you simply want to make the porn you want to watch.

We’ll focus on practical skills that will build your confidence and capacity, to the point where you are inspired and empowered to go home and start shooting.

Come alone or with a partner, and be prepared to show the camera what you’ve got. You will get the most out of this class if you are keen to have a go at erotic performance, and not afraid of being in front of the lens. If you prefer to stay behind the camera, we advise bringing a partner who is up for being filmed.

Expect to discuss your motivations for making your own porn, any anxieties or obstacles that need to be considered, and why it can be an empowering choice. You’ll learn how to take sexy selfies, and what you’ll need to get started shooting your own clips to sell online (hint: it doesn’t have to include an expensive camera or technical kit!). We’ll discuss sets and lighting tips, ideas for things to do on camera other than the obvious, an introduction to video editing software, and how to distribute your work. Plus, we’ll have some fun creating a collaborative video on the day – and as well as all the raw footage of your performance, you’ll receive a copy and shared commercial content rights to a final cut of our DIY porn, edited by award-winning pornographer Pandora Blake.

Bring your own video camera (your phone be fine, just make sure it’s charged!), any props or costumes that get you in the mood, and plenty of enthusiasm! All genders and sexual orientations are welcome.

Pandora Blake is an award-winning feminist porn performer and producer based in the UK. Since starting work in the porn industry in 2005 she has developed a radical politics of ethical porn production, which she put into practice in 2011 with the launch of Dreams of Spanking, an ethical BDSM porn website that was closed down last year under the UK porn legislation. Dreams of Spanking was innovative in prioritising transparency, accessibility, explicit behind the scenes enthusiastic consent, and equal pay for equal work; its films were queer-inclusive and gender-critical, exploring corporal punishment fantasies via the female erotic gaze, and received international recognition at the Feminist Porn Awards and the Berlin Porn Film Festival. A sex worker, public speaker and writer, Pandora campaigns with Backlash, the English Collective of Prostitutes, and the Sex Worker Open University. She is an outspoken activist on issues including sex work law reform, censorship and obscenity law, sexual freedom, civil liberties, kink acceptance, and ethical porn.
