2016 year in review - highlights and reflections

Posted at 13:35 on 11 Jan 2017 by Pandora Blake

Happy new year! It's traditional to do an end of year review, and I've been chewing over my 2016 one. Damn, it was a hell of a year; comparable in craziness only to the year before it. Here are the headlines:

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.

Friday in Berlin - XConfessions, LOVE HARD and Female Porn Shorts

Posted at 23:13 on 6 Nov 2014 by Pandora Blake

Since my last update from Berlin, Lucie Blush and Ms Naughty have both posted reports from the Porn Film Festival which are well worth reading.

Tickets for the Moviemento cinema at the Porn Film Festival Berlin 2014

On Friday I felt much better slept, and I had tickets for five screenings, but I'd already decided that only three of them were ones I really cared about: XConfessions by Erika Lust, LOVE HARD by Sensate Films, and the Female Porn Shorts screening in which Instructed was playing.

Porn Film Festival Berlin - first day of screenings

Posted at 20:04 on 30 Oct 2014 by Pandora Blake

Violet Blue was kind enough to link to my last post about the Porn Film Festival Berlin. I kept notes throughout the next four days of the festival, but didn't have time to post anything until I got back. The following was written last Thursday evening in Berlin, after midnight.

Oh my god, where to start? I can't believe I've only been here for a day. Including shorts I've seen fourteen films today - I've never consumed this much media in one go before. Every spare minute in between has been spent talking, processing, connecting with people. The scarcity of tickets not only makes the films seem more valuable, but having limited time to chat to people in between makes every conversation significant - and really forces you to be efficient. I didn't want to waste a single second in the film-makers lounge on small talk. Give me shop talk, gossip and analysis every time.

Sinful Sunday - pleasuring Zahra

Posted at 23:07 on 10 Aug 2014 by Pandora Blake

For this week's Sinful Sunday I wanted to share a sexy moment from a very special film which I shot at the Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto this April. I opened the video to capture a screengrab from one of my favourite bits - but I ended up with so many amazing captures I couldn't choose just one.

Zahra Stardust is one of the coolest porn stars on the planet - Australian pole dance champion, Penthouse Pet and political candidate for the Australian Sex Party - for House of Representatives, Senate, and for Lord Mayor of Sydney. She is a performer/producer of queer ethical porn, an activist, artist and she is studying for a PhD on pornography. An awesome woman and it was a huge pleasure to meet her.

In this collaborative film she expressed her curiosity about spanking... and confessed that she also loved to have her bottom punched and squeezed. Here I am after giving her a luxurious over the knee pleasure spanking and leather strapping, pummelling her perfect dancer's bottom while she brings herself to orgasm with the Hitachi.

New feminist porn: 'Instructed'

Posted at 20:27 on 7 Jul 2014 by Pandora Blake

I made a film, and I'm pretty damn excited about it. 'Instructed' is a collaboration between me and Ms Naughty, which was filmed at the Feminist Porn Awards this year. The shoot was attended by a BBC journalist - and that wasn't the only way this was a new experience for me. This is my most explicit video to date, exploring themes of remote dominance, anal eroticism, solo spanking and female masturbation.

Instructed: an explicit new film by Ms Naughty and Pandora Blake

I've written before about how I came up with the idea of keeping D's instructions a secret, and reading - and obeying - them live on camera. If you haven't read them already, you can find out more about the shoot in my blogposts Submissive solo shoot with Bright Desire and What will I be told to do? I'm really glad that D got involved so closely with the shoot - both in writing orders for me to follow, and in recording himself reading his instructions for me to use as a voiceover. The result is an intimate, erotic film which is as fresh and exciting for me as it was on the day of the shoot.

Feminist porn on BBC News

Posted at 09:13 on 13 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

I enjoyed chatting to BBC journalist Daniel Nasaw at the Feminist Porn Awards, but I wasn't sure when his article would come out.

The first I knew of it was when I woke up on Friday to find dozens of tweets about it in my mentions feed. I looked and there it was, right on the BBC News homepage!
