Sensual soft porn with passion and emotions

Else Cinema is the “soft edition” amongst the websites of porn producer Erika Lust. It features soft porn that focuses on sensuality, emotions and passion. The site does not show any close-ups of genitals. The category No Dialogue” is a collection of films without any dialogues. The site explains how it defines ethical porn. On the subpage values you’ll find an in-depth explanation how the producers ensure safe working conditions on set.

The Site's own Claim

Erika Lust’s films are aesthetic and of high quality, with female lust often in the center of attention. Many films, however, reproduce rather normative beauty standards. But there are also films with diverse performers. Queer and trans people, black people and POC are shown respectfully and without problematic categorization. A few older and non-standard bodies are also featured.

Content Categories

You can find 12 categories, none of them is problematic in our opinion.

Performers

The performers and the producers can present themselves with a short intro (text and pic or, alternatively, video). The videos they are starring in and links to their social media are presented on the same page.

Additional Information:

Erika Lust is considered an icon of feminist indie porn film production and has built up a small empire with XConfessions , Else Cinema and LustCinema. Her perception in the feminist porn industry has, however, been controversial.

One of the criticisms is that, as a white straight cis woman, she is publicly promoting a “better”, “new” form of porn, obscuring the long queer history of feminist pornography and women, trans and non-binary people in the industry.
