Sexual Fantasies turned into Porn

Erika Lust is considered an icon of feminist indie porn production and has built up a small empire with XConfessions, Elsecinema and Lustcinema. Her films are aesthetic and differ from the usual male gaze. The focus is often on female pleasure without reproducing porn clichés. On XConfessions, people can submit their sexual fantasies, which then result in very different porn films.

Working Conditions

On Set

After criticism of the working conditions on Erika Lust’s set became public, she responded by publishing a contract for producers and performers which was inspired by the one elaborated by the fetish site kink.com. Its key priority is consensus. The performers are allowed several breaks, food is provided and a relaxed atmosphere is promised. In addition, all shooting scenes are discussed beforehand.

Payment

The site states that everyone, from interns to performers, is paid fairly. The amount of the payment is not specified.

Safer Sex

(STI prevention / testing; access to safer sex supplies)

There are contractually agreed safer sex standards and it is mandatory to show up on set with a current STI test.

Consent

… regarding practices, upload, shooting partners:

After a performer publicly complained about an abusive situation during a shoot, Erika Lust revised the standards on set. There shouldn’t be any surprises on the set, the producers go through the scenes with the performers again before the shooting begins.

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

On XConfessions there are no categories that we consider to be particularly problematic. There are separate categories for certain countries, e.g. “Very American”, “Very French” or “Very Nordic”. You can also find some unusual categories like “Music” or “Documentary”.

Performers

All performers are briefly introduced in a text or an interview and can link their social media channels. All co-productions are also listed here.
