Pioneers in ethical porn with a feminist twist

Erika Lust started her journey in 2004, disrupting the industry at a time when it desperately needed it.  At this time, problematic mainstream pornography that didn’t prioritize respect of performers was the norm. Lust saw an opportunity for a new kind of content creation in the space. She made it her mission to shift perspectives from objectification to mutual pleasure and consent with a focus on diversity.

The female gaze was central to this new world that Lust was birthing. Adult entertainment hasn’t always put the experiences of women first, but through a feminist lens, Erika Lust pivoted to present sexuality in an intimate and authentic way that resonated with women and demographics beyond the cis-het male who was previously the main demographic catered to.
