Tom of Finland movie
For the most time of the year we shut up about our love for movies showing naked skin, pleasure and lust. But there is one week where this is different and we’re out and proud, unapologetically screaming: I LOVE PORN! It’s the time of the Pornfilmfestival Berlin every year in the fall, showcasing other visual presentations of sex and love that are not degrading, insensitive or only representing one niche of the sexual spectrum. It’s the one week a year we can hardly wait for – a whole week fueled with films, panels, readings and performances that explore sexual perspectives outside of social norms, construed identities and morals.
The last edition of the PFF was all about icons. Many of the 27 shown movies pay homage to pioneers or role models in the fields of erotic art and sexuality who paved the way for our perception of sex today. In bio pics or documentaries we can discover the stories of Italian porn superstar and politician “La Cicciolina“, the truth behind sex symbol Jayne Mansfield in “Mansfield 66/67” or, a must see for all the kinky gays of Berlin, the life story of Mr.” Gay Leather Hunks” himself: “Tom of Finland”.
