Yeah yeah yeah, sex sells. What kind of sex though? When you watch recent music videos, a lot of them could be a trailer for a dirty flick, for sure. Sex is a part of pop culture and sneaks in everywhere, making suggestions, taking advantage.

The porn industry – despite the millions of free films online – is still a billion dollar industry. Somehow, it is also a barometer of how society thinks about sex, I guess. Depending on what new genres come up, it says a lot about where the culture stands, what’s up and coming – pun intended.
Erotica for women is a rather newer genre. Erika Lust is – no pun intended this time – the shooting star of it, you could say.

Erika Lust

Lust is a Swedish-born, Barcelona-based filmmaker, who initially studied political science, feminism and sexuality at the University of Lund. Nowadays, the self-proclaimed “sex-positive feminist and cinephile” is making movies that speak to men and women, who like the indie version of things. Lust has won many awards and with her newest venture XConfessions, she could be winning some more. She has taken it upon herself to make erotic movies out of anonymously submitted sex stories and “XConfessions” shows some of them. Each month, Lust turns two stories into films.
With this, she is a trailblazer, making this the first crowd-sourced erotic films.
