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.

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. ♥

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.

Welcome to Melbourne

Posted at 12:01 on 25 Nov 2015 by Pandora / Blake

Well, I'm safe and sound in Australia. For a long haul flight, my journey went pretty smoothly. I did three 7-8 hour legs via Dubai and Brunei, with a couple of hours at each airport. It broke the journey up nicely and gave me some changes of scenery (although not much; all airports look more or less alike, and neither of the ones I passed through let transit passengers leave the building and breathe the outdoor air). Plus Brunei airport had free wifi, which put it in my good books forever.


Schoolgirl reporting for detention in Melbourne. No, this isn't what I wore on the plane.

I got lucky and landed on flights that weren't booked out, so I got to spread out onto the free seat next to me on all three flights, and on the final one I had the whole middle row to myself. Bliss! Overall I managed around eight hours sleep during a twenty four hour journey, which isn't terrible, but I arrived in Melbourne at 5.30am and so my first day here was pretty much the longest day ever. Helena was very strict with me, and ordered me to stay awake and push through until a normal Melbourne bedtime, to try and reset my body clock. Depriving myself of sleep feels, for an insomniac, like the most self-destructive thing ever, but she was right, and after a week here I'm finally sleeping through the night - and even managed a lie-in this morning!
