Join us for a special evening showcasing feminist porn, a genre of adult films and a growing movement!
Tristan Taormino will share a brief history and definition of feminist porn, then screen a special compilation curated by her which includes clips from the work of feminist porn pioneers and newcomers, including Candida Royalle, Annie Sprinkle, Nina Hartley, Petra Joy, Erika Lust, Shine Louise Houston, Madison Young, Courtney Trouble, and more. The screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion where we'll explore some of the current issues surrounding feminist porn.
The pre-show will include a sexy performance from Felice Shays. Afterward, Tristan will stick around to sign books and videos, and the party can continue at the adjoining Bar Bar.
