Legalizing Feminist Porn with Pandora Blake TPP109

Pandora Blake picIn this episode I have an invigorating conversation with activist and feminist pornographer Pandora Blake. We discuss the shady politics of repression of sexual expression. While there are many reasons to feel defeated and demoralized in the struggle for sexual and artistic liberation, Pandora provides a lot of strength and hope that a proud, empowered, uncompromising, pornographic revolution will prevail.

About Pandora:

Pandora Blake is a feminist pornographer, sex worker and sexual freedom campaigner. Her films have won multiple international awards and her website Dreams of Spanking has survived legal battles against porn censorship in the UK.

Pandora is an active campaigner for sex work decriminalisation and labour rights, obscenity law reform, civil liberties and human rights, particularly relating to freedom of expression, gender, sexuality and privacy. She is official spokesperson for Backlash, which defends freedom of sexual expression among consenting adults in the UK, and organises
alongside the Open Rights Group and the English Collective of Prostitutes. An experienced public speaker, Pandora regularly appears on panels and gives talks and media interviews. She runs a Patreon to support her unpaid activism and political work.

As a sex worker and porn-maker, Pandora works passionately to increase social and legal acceptance of marginalised sexualities, educate the public about kink and BDSM, and reduce stigma and shame. She was awarded Publicist of the Year at the Sexual Freedom Awards 2015 for her efforts advocating for sex workers’ rights and against porn censorship. She is currently working on a book about the politics and psychology of fantasy, particularly the ones we don’t dare admit to in public.

Her pornographic films are story-driven and gender-critical, exploring kinky fantasies via a queer erotic gaze. She is the sole owner and operator of Dreams of Spanking, which launched in 2011, faced government censorship for its unapologetic depiction of consensual BDSM, and successfully appealed against closure by the UK porn regulator in 2016.

Her work has won awards including Best BDSM Scene 2015 at the Feminist Porn Awards, and first prize in the 2015 Short Film Competition at the Berlin Porn Film Festival. Her production ethos is performer-centric, and prioritises transparency, explicit performer consent, and equal pay for equal work.

Pandora writes a blog on kink, porn and politics, and you can follow her on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

How Tantric Porn Can Save the World with Lawrence Lanoff TPP86

Tantra Punk PicThis is a unique episode wherein I invited one of my main tantric mentors to help me process after several days at the XBiz adult industry trade show. Over the course of the last year I’ve been immersing myself in the adult entertainment industry in order to understand how best to bring the tantric and shamanic sexual healing arts into the light and in front of the lens.

I’ve been artistically and spiritually successful and with the research, development, and due diligence I’ve done, I’m hoping that with the right help, I will also be financially successful and thus be empowered to incite and accelerate a higher level of consciousness in porn.

Lawrence very graciously holds space for me to share what I’ve discovered and helps to inform, guide and direct my visions with his knowledge and wisdom as both a tantra master and veteran Playboy director and producer.

50 Shades of Green Sektual Purmakultur TPP70

tantra-punk-kali in this episode I’m joined by M.F.P. for an exploration of the new 50 Shades of Green Sektual Permaculture spoken word poem I recently released. I lay out the thesis and she affirms that sexual capital can and should be invested into ecologically honorable endeavors.

In a bonus segment, with permission I read an article by Jill Lawson called “50 Shades of Namaste” all about the parallel benefits and pitfalls of both Yoga and BDSM. It is very wise and insightful and helps balance out the discourse by owning and honoring our need to escape the ego by inducing altered states of consciousness. I agree that ethics are sorely needed to ensure integrity and relative safety in all of our attempts to learn and practice arts of transcendence.

The Feminist Porn Revolution with Russell OConner TPP63

fem-reviews-pic In this episode I’m joined by Russell O’Conner of Feminist Porn Reviews. I found their website while researching feminist porn and was very happy to find such a valuable resource. In the discussion we explore a wide range of legal, ethical, and financial issues in the porn industry that feminist consciousness provides hopeful solutions for.

Feminist Porn Reviews Mission:
Like many people, we here at FemPorn have a love-hate relationship with porn. We love it because we love sex. But we hate it because so much porn is openly and even proudly misogynistic. And even when it isn’t that bad, too much porn is completely devoid of genuine female pleasure and totally fails to include or even acknowledge a feminine perspective on sex. But porn doesn’t have to be that way, and not all porn is that way. So we love the fact that there is feminist porn that we can love and not hate, and we want to share what we have discovered with you…read more at: http://femporn.blogspot.com

Tantra Task Force Launches Shamanic Porn Initiative

Press Release

Tantra Task Force Launches Shamanic Porn Initiative

Las Vegas, NV (March 07, 2016) The Tantra Task Force has launched a shamanic porn initiative to address issues of abuse and exploitation inside and outside of the porn industry.

Noting a lack of sexual healing themes in porn, Tantra Punk (a Las Vegas based tantric sexual healer and founder of the Tantra Task Force) has felt the need to create shamanic educational and instructional adult films.

“The tension between anti-porn religious groups and pornographers can be resolved with a shamanic approach to sexuality that ensures sacredness, health, and healing while celebrating the joy of sex.” said Tantra Punk.

In his pilot shamanic porn film “Tantradelic Exorgasm”, he depicts a psychedelic sexual exorcism of a traumatic abuse survivor. “The video demonstrates how lovers can become sexual healers using a synthesis of ancient energy cleansing techniques”.
