Dirty Diaries: Feminist Porn

July 7, 2010

Via the Dirty Diaries website:

Dirty Diaries is a diverse collection of Swedish feminist porn: Hardcore action and vanilla sex, queer and straight, flashing and fucking, provocation, penetration and poetry. Orgasms and art in films for the open adult mind.

12 shorts of feminist porn, Dirty Diaries is certainly a unique presentation. What really caught my eye though, was their manifesto (and you know I’m all about the manifestos).

1. Beautiful the way we are

To hell with the sick beauty ideals! Deep self-hatred keeps a lot of women’s energy and creativity sapped. The energy that could be focused into exploring our own sexuality and power is being drained off into diets and cosmetics. Don’t let the commercial powers control your needs and desires.

2. Fight for your right to be horny

Male sexuality is seen as a force of nature that has to be satisfied at all costs while women’s sexuality is accepted only if it adapts to men’s needs. Be horny on your own terms.

3. A good girl is a bad girl

We are fed up with the cultural cliché that sexually active and independent women are either crazy or lesbian and therefore crazy. We want to see and make movies where Betty Blue, Ophelia and Thelma & Louise don’t have to die in the end.

4. Smash capitalism and patriarchy

The porn industry is sexist because we live in a patriarchal capitalist society. It makes profit out of people’s needs for sex and erotica and women get exploited in the process. To fight sexist porn you have to smash capitalism and patriarchy.

5. As nasty as we wanna be

Enjoy, take charge or let go. Say NO when you want, to be able to say YES when YOU want.

6. Legal and free abortion is a human right!

Everyone has the right to control their own body. Millions of women suffer from unwanted pregnancies and die from illegal abortions every year. Fuck the moral right for preaching against birth control and sex information.

7. Fight the real enemy!

Censorship cannot liberate sexuality. It is impossible to change the image of women’s sexuality if sexual images in themselves are taboo. Don’t attack women for displaying sex. Attack sexism for trying to control our sexuality.

8. Stay Queer

A lot of opposition to erotica is homophobic and even more transphobic. We don’t believe in the fight between the sexes but in the fight against sexes. Identify as any gender you want and make love to whoever you want. Sexuality is diverse.

9. Use Protection

“I’m not saying go out an’ do it, but if you do, strap it up before you smack it up.” (Missy Elliot)

10. Do it yourself

Erotica is good and we need it. We truly believe that it is possible to create an alternative to the mainstream porn industry by making sexy films we like.

Wouldn’t the world be a little more awesome if we all took a page from the Dirty Diaries Manifesto? I sure think so.

    Be horny on your own terms.

    Good advice.

    I think.

    Honestly, I need to think about this a little more.

    P.S. — So how did you find this site, young lady?

      Haha, I actually found it through a feminist Tumblr blog.

    You mean you don’t like mainstream porn about naive barely legally girls getting talked into sex by a groudy older guy?

    This is the first time I’ve ever been to your blog and I love it. I was reading some of your other posts and almost commented on them until I saw this one. I think reclaiming our sexuality is sooo important. I am from conservativesmalltown, USA and growing up sex was discussed pretty much like this:
    Guy: “I like sex” (followed by high fives and chest bumps)
    Girl: “I like sex” (followed by dirty looks and other girls calling her a slut)

    Point being, you have a new follower.
