The future of female-led porn | Dazed

Are there certain stereotypes within porn that you still struggle to break today?

Erika Lust: The sex heroines, the sex heroes, and the sex machines. It’s not only female roles, men are portrayed terribly too. There’s a responsibility to show different characters here, and to acknowledge that normal people – all of us – we have sex, we come from sex, we enjoy sex, and sex is the source of life. Not only the super-silicone Barbies and the muscular men. When we begin to see more common people in porn, we’ll be more relaxed and feel less ashamed. We’ll be able feel that we are not so different, and that our darkest fantasies are shared by other people.”
