Is it possible to change the male sexism in porn from within?

These last months I have been thinking and changing some things of my work… and I will tell you on the fly, it’s something that surely those who follow me more closely have already seen on my twitter.

And is that I decided to “investigate” as a model/actress, in the mainstream porn like I did in my beginnings. I thought maybe I should get more involved in this porn, to basically try a kind of “marketing strategy” that I have in mind.

I know that porn companies are usually very professional, in most cases treat the models very well. If there is something that I don’t like, it is how they  reflects the woman in the videos, not the work as such.

In alternative and independent porn, the problem that I have seen over the years and from my own experience with this website, is that it’s very difficult to publicize it, reach people and let know about us. Mainstream companies invest a lot of money in advertising and are in sight everywhere. But we, having little budget, we can not assume it. It’s something that creates a lot of impotence, because then I compare the visits I have on the website, with the susbscriptions and the people that stay with us, in this altporn community, there is a very high percentage compared to other websites. That is, the results by statistics and web analytics are good, but missing more people. But when people know us they want to see more!!!


With that I came to the deduction, that if I, as a model, I “introduce” in a more conventional and international porn, maybe that is one of the ways that more people can see me, and if they like what I do, maybe they’ll look for me after and see the other kind of porn I do.

Aside from this reason, I read an interview to our partner Amarna Miller some time ago, in which she was asked, being a feminist, how it was possible that she would do sexism porn. And she said among several things, that she thought “porn had to be changed from within.” And I thought… Well yes! why not? But… in what way?


So I contacted some porn agencies. In a matter of weeks they offered me several scenes. I organized 5 scenes to shoot in 3 days in Prague. Four of them were for a kind of porn that I consider “appropriate” for my general tastes and thinking from a feminist point, but there was a scene of them that worried me the most. This scene tried to offer me money on the street and they ended up convincing me by offering me more and more money, which obviously was not the one that paid me for that scene.

This type of porn if that goes against my principles, as a woman I find humiliating, they may think that we can be convinced to have sex by offering us money. But on the other hand, I also didn’t want to reject it if I did not propose it as a challenge, that is when I saw the opportune moment to put into practice trying to make a change.

So on the day of the shoot, I asked them if it was possible to change the ending. The actor, who is also the director of this series on the web was surprised, I guess he would be accustomed to do all the scenes as they are thought “from above.” I told hi, that I understood that the series (the fantasy that they were trying to represent) was just about that, but that if I could say that I gave back the money, that I had followed “the game” because it made me horny, but I had done for pleasure and because I was horny situation, not for money. He laughed and said it was a good idea!!

They explained how they wanted the scene, so we started, first we talked a bit and he offered me the money, there I had to refuse and leave. Then he would follow me and offer me more and more money until I accepted. When it came to the part where I already gave, I took the magic, I was also adding things like I agreed but to show me his cock, wanted to see if it was pretty, big or ugly, things like that… showing that I was starting “to play”, and that money was starting to get into another plane within that game.

When we already filmed the whole scene, at the end I said what we agreed, that he gave back the money, etc. and he added:

– Okay, but let me invite you to dinner, after all, I’m a gentleman.

Speaking of producing, of course we are more and more woman porn directors who are contributing other nuances to porn in general, with our alternative porn, but… talking about “acting or modeling” maybe the porn actresses are afraid to give our opinion as women, not only strictly adhering to what they ask of us. Perhaps some male directors also expect ideas from us that change a little established. I think it’s an interesting topic… what do you think?
