Berlin shoot with Parker Marx and Bright Desire

Posted at 20:36 on 17 Nov 2015 by Pandora Blake

Because it was my second year and I knew what to expect, my time at the Berlin Porn Film Festival was more relaxed this year. I arrived in Berlin earlier, left later, and allowed myself more time between screenings to socialise, eat and rest. Still, it was a full week - not least because the morning after I arrived, I had a shoot booked with Bright Desire.

Bright Desire offers smart, sexy porn shot for the female gaze, and its owner Ms Naughty is one of my best friends in the feminist porn community - not least because we were (until Dreams of Spanking was closed down by ATVOD) two of the only people running membership sites with regular update schedules, which set our production process apart from others. We bonded at the Feminist Porn Awards in 2014 - which is also where we shot together for the first time, filming Instructed, a kinky solo scene that went on to win the award for Best BDSM Scene 2015.

This time we were planning a couple shoot, and my co-star was up-and-coming queer porn performer Parker Marx, a hot kinky switch with a killer jawline and cute bum. Parker and I met at a party in London a few weeks ago, we got chatting about working in porn, and hit it off. After some successful experimentation in private, a mutual decision was made that it would be fun to shoot together.

What I'm up to - autumn edition

Posted at 01:06 on 5 Nov 2015 by Pandora Blake

I'm back in the UK for three short weeks before I go travelling again, and I can't believe how quickly the time is passing. There's an awful lot going on at the moment - almost all of it good! Here's a brief snapshot of my autumn:

Sexual Freedom Awards

I've been nominated for a Sexual Freedom Award! I'm a finalist in the Publicist of the Year category for my work promoting ethical porn and campaigning against censorship and for sex work law reform. It's an incredible honour to be named - in fact I've been aware of the awards for ten years, and it's a bit of a dream come true. Thank you so much to those who nominated me - you know who you are. ♥

Porn Film Festival Berlin 2015

Posted at 23:13 on 2 Nov 2015 by Pandora Blake

The Porn Film Festival Berlin is literally a life-changing event - and I don't say that lightly. It has certainly changed mine.

This year was its tenth anniversary, and a record 7 500 people attended screenings of cutting-edge porn from around the world. The offerings are incredibly diverse, including feminist porn, fetish porn, experimental porn, queer and trans porn, from short films to features ... but the festival doesn't only showcase film intended to arouse, it is also packed with documentaries, art films, docu-portraits, and myriad factual and fictional pieces exploring sex, gender and sexuality.

Support Myles Jackman in his fight against censorship

Posted at 16:30 on 13 Oct 2015 by Pandora Blake

When the new porn laws came in last December, criminalising the distribution of material depicting sex acts such as facesitting, female ejaculation, watersports and spanking or BDSM that leaves lasting marks, the first person I called was Myles Jackman. Over brunch, he provided invaluable advice regarding how I should proceed with my porn site Dreams of Spanking, which was strongly affected by the new legislation. Since then he has taken on responsibility for handling my Ofcom appeal, provided support countless times as a volunteer for Backlash, and been on the end of the phone during the most stressful periods of my investigation by ATVOD, the new UK video on demand regulator. Almost all of this support has been provided free of charge.

Myles is a tireless campaigner defending sexual liberty in the UK, and many individuals who have been charged with consensual adult pornography offences, or facing family or employment law issues on the basis of their sexual preferences have benefited from his pro bono legal advice. He has dedicated his career to challenging the legal framework through which sexual morality is constrained in the UK, and he specialises in privacy and freedom of expression issues, especially for members of the BDSM and queer communities, sex workers and people in the adult industry.

Sinful Sunday - an itch that can't be scratched

Posted at 23:56 on 11 Oct 2015 by Pandora Blake

Sitting up with friends late into the night, D and I can't keep our hands off each other. I reach down and touch the soft bulge in his pants with my fingertips, feeling the promise of firmness there. He strokes my flanks and my back, feather-soft.

When we can't stand it any longer we make our excuses and leave. In the bedroom we start out slowly, lying close and kissing. It's dizzying how fast the heat rises. I don't realise how wet I am until his hand finds my molten centre and two fingers press deep inside, leaving me gasping and wanting more.

Sunday roast

Posted at 16:04 on 9 Oct 2015 by Pandora Blake

Last weekend D and I were chopping vegetables for a roast. He was halving potatoes to parboil, and I was peeling parsnips.

I felt him move closer to me. “You look visually appealing,” he said, putting his arms around my waist. He must have finished the potatoes.

My wet and messy initiation

Posted at 23:54 on 4 Oct 2015 by Pandora Blake

On Wednesday night last week I was buzzing with pre-shoot nerves. I read and re-read the script, tried to print it, realised I was out of printer ink, and finally emailed it to myself as a document with my lines highlighted in yellow. I took extra care packing my bag, thought everything through umpteen times and sent a dozen frantic emails to the producer full of questions and concerns. The reason? On Thursday, I was travelling to Northampton for my first ever wet and messy shoot.

During the nine years that I've been shooting spanking video, it's sort of become routine. But this time took me right back to the nerves I felt before my first ever spanking video shoot. Suddenly I found myself empathising a hell of a lot more with the new performers that I've hired as a producer in the last couple of years, and I developed a newfound admiration for their calm and professionalism. If I was this much of a mess (as it were) after nine years of fetish video experience, simply at the prospect of getting gunged all over my hair, shoes and clothes, how much harder must it be for the performers I hire who are facing a day of spankings for the first time?

In a weird way, I actually felt more nervous before my first wet and messy shoot than I did before my first spanking shoot. By the time I agreed to get spanked on video, I'd been getting spanked in private for six years, and fantasising about it for another ten years before that. But until last Thursday, I'd never submitted to the experience of being covered in gunge or given a pie in the face - or even thought about it much.

Where do the AVMS guidelines come from?

Posted at 22:13 on 13 Jul 2015 by Pandora Blake

When I talk to someone about the AVMS guidelines, which control what content it is now legal to distribute online in the UK, their first question is always how on earth these regulations came to pass. Why is facesitting banned, but not gagging on cock? Why can UK video producers not show female ejaculation, but male ejaculation is permissible? Why are the guidelines weirdly specific on the details of a high number of niche activities only found within female domination porn - such as trampling, ballbusting, facesitting, scissoring, wrestling, urethral sounds, anal insertion and BDSM pain play - but no mention is made of countless other obscure fetishes?

A preview photo from Femme Fatale Films, which definitely doesn't depict any of ATVOD's banned acts.

After I describe these inconsistencies, the person I'm talking to usually makes a face as they try to imagine how such a bizarre list of banned acts could possibly be compiled. Perhaps they envisage a group of old white men sitting in a boardroom, listing all the fetishes they can think of on a whiteboard, deleting some and underlining others. Half the fetishes on the internet they have never heard of, so they don't get a mention. None of these old white men have ever made a woman squirt, so the consensus is that female ejaculation is a myth, and probably urine - better ban it. But perhaps some of them have guiltily visited a dominatrix or watched femdom porn, so those activities are on their radar - along with all the attendant anxiety of a repressed sexuality. It's potent stuff, they might think, but it's also clearly morally suspect. Best to remove the temptation and ban it all together.
