Erika Lust’s Push to Transform ‘Break Up Month’ to ‘Make Up Month’

Pioneering sex-positive brand, ERIKALUST, is offering couples free erotic movies to help them get through December, known by experts as ‘National Break Up Month’.

While the Smithsonian says that more babies are conceived in December than any other month, data from Facebook also shows that it’s the most common month for breakups too. ERIKALUST believes it can help in both ways.

As part of the 10-year anniversary of their platform, XConfessions, and in a bid to help couples and marriages weather the holidays, the ethical porn pioneers are offering all couples free movies on their XConfessions platform. With a study by Divorce Statistics reporting that there are over 1889 divorces per day in the US, ERIKALUST wants to transform “National Break Up Month” into “National Makeup Month”. 

Though the holidays often bring couples together, the added pressure that couples experience during the holiday rush can lead to a lack of intimacy and connection. This distancing culminates in what has become known as “Divorce Day” which falls on the first Monday after New Year’s Day. Award-winning director, Erika Lust, sees this as the perfect opportunity to help couples become stronger than ever by offering a way for couples to improve their sexual relationship through watching ethical porn. 

With this winter marking the 10-year anniversary of their XConfessions platform, ERIKALUST is celebrating this achievement by sharing their ethically produced porn with all couples, for free. 

Erika Lust, the acclaimed adult filmmaker, said: “Porn offers a path to a deeper connection, it allows you to share your fantasies, experiment, and include new practices in your sexual life. Porn is something to be shared together – it’s an experience, not a movie. I deeply encourage couples to enjoy the beauty and sexuality of watching porn together. Happy holidays…”

Dr. Carol Queen,PhD., internationally renowned sexologist and in-house sex expert for Good Vibes, states: “Connecting couples with positive images of eroticism and intimacy, gives them a way to connect, whether they are living together or in a long-distance relationship. They can share their responses with each other when they do connect again. I know that phone sex and talking in bed can deepen connections, and talking about porn is such a fabulous way to get into that.”

With a shocking 41% of first marriages and 60% of second marriages ending in divorce, ERIKALUST aims to support couples and help positively impact these statistics this winter. The trailblazing porn brand believes that watching porn together is a great way to save relationships and regain intimacy that can be lost during the wild holiday rush.  

Erika’s groundbreaking XConfessions project is the first crowdsourced erotic film series in the history of adult cinema. Every month, Erika picks two anonymous fantasies shared on XConfessions and turns them into captivating, explicit short films. With more than 200 short films, Erika’s revolutionary cinema reflects her views on sex as a healthy, natural part of life worth celebrating.
