A big year in porn for women

A screenshot from Ms Naughty's site Bright DesireMs Naughty is an Australian blogger, educator, and porn producer. She runs Bright Desire and For the Girls, porn sites that offer well-made erotic content such as videos, documentaries, and fiction.

Having worked in the industry for 13 years, Ms Naughty is a strong voice in the landscape of female-produced porn. Recently she published her yearly Porn for Women Retrospective, which tirelessly tracks all the developments in the world of female-friendly porn in the past year.

In her retrospective, Ms Naughty notes a boom in feminist porn specifically, including the publication of The Feminist Porn Book, the eighth annual Feminist Porn Awards (and other great awards shows honoring feminist and queer porn), the inaugural Feminist Porn Conference, and the addition of Feminist Porn Release of the Year to the roster in the mainstream Xbiz Awards.

2013 also saw the untimely passing of Carlos Batts; the release of Courtney Trouble’s Lesbian Curves and Come Find Me, Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Kinky Sex for Couples and Guide to Bondage for Couples, and Erika Lust’s X-Confessions; the publication of What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire; and the launch of a new academic journal called Porn Studies. Meanwhile, several surveys attempted to discern how many women watch porn — with no clear-cut answer.

In addition to the retrospective, check out this compilation video about the Feminist Porn Awards and Conference, with many clips from Ms Naughty’s work as well as Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Pegging:
