For many South Asians, the name Sunny Leone often comes to mind when talking about porn stars. But other big names were in town last Friday to attend Toronto’s 10th anniversary Feminist Porn Awards, sponsored by LELO.
Top directors and performers from around the globe like Erika Lust, Ovidie, Kelly Shibari, Shine Louise Houston, Tobi-Hill Meyer and Paul Deeb. The Capitol Event Theatre was filled with steamy porn clips, sexy performances and a powerful room of feminists of all genders celebrating sex on screen. Twenty-four awards in total were handed out in categories ranging from Golden Beaver Award for Canadian Content to Steamiest Straight Movie at this annual event, now in its tenth year.
“Feminist porn breaks the stereotypes not only of mainstream tropes but also of what kinds of sex feminists like to watch; mild to wild, straight, queer and/or trans, feminist porn is really for everybody!” – Carlyle Jansen, owner Good For Her and producer of the Feminist Porn Awards
Responding to feedback that they want to “see more porn”, the events also included a screening event called Public Provocative Porn: Celebrates 10 Years!, giving audiences a chance to see more of these incredible films
as well as the opportunity to engage with filmmakers with their questions. Held at the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre in Toronto on April 16th, over 500 people gathered to watch selections from Feminist Porn Award nominated films. French Filmmaker Ovidie, Americans Tobi-Hill Meyer and Shine Louise Houston, as well as local film makers Jesse Rae West and Naomi Rutledge were on the panel to share their experiences, goals and processes in filmmaking. These selections of films shattered assumptions about the porn aesthetic, from folks who used an iPhone to those with big budgets, from soft to edgy, artsy and political.
