GIDDY UP! Let’s Talk about Sex: Feminist Pornography Panel Review (Melbourne)

Amie Wee

Six weeks ago I moved to Melbourne for 2 reasons.

The first reason was that I was too poor to move to San Francisco and everyone knows that San Fran is the greatest place in the world. And secondly, I’d heard that Melbourne was becoming this hot smut bed of emerging pornographers and filthy queerness and I knew I wanted in.

The event I went to tonight didn’t disappoint on the smut front. Let’s Talk about Sex: Feminist Pornography was an hour length panel hosted by foxy sex therapist Cyndi Darnell and featured Anna Brownfield (‘erotic filmmaker’), Gala Vanting (‘erotic film producer and sex worker’) and Fiona Patten (THE BEES FUCKIN KNEES – also CEO of Eros Association and the founder of the Australian Sex Party).

After some introductions, the panel kicked off a PG showreel of both Brownfield and Vanting’s recent feminist porn production efforts.

Two very interesting takes on porn production and both ones that are pretty much the opposite of how I roll. So, variety for the win.

It was all very interesting and an exciting conversation to be a part of but there were several points I disagreed with or needing more clarification on but with the audience unable to ask questions until the 10 minute period at the end, the discussions quickly skipped onto other facets of porn and
