    Why We Should Be Watching More Feminist Porn

    Explicit erotic film director, Jennifer Lyon Bell, on her new film, Silver Shoes, and why women will love getting off on it. NSFW.

    1. A lot of women want to watch explicit erotic material, but are put off by the word "porn".

    2. Women's porn should be as diverse as women themselves, and it should definitely be explicit.

    3. Seeing people who are genuinely having fun with sex is seriously hot.

    4. We've learned not to expect emotional engagement from porn, but that doesn't mean we don't want it.

    5. The less commercially driven alternative porn industry allows filmmakers to be more creative with sexuality.

    6. Even if you usually watch straight porn, blurring of gender boundaries can be exciting too.

    7. Watching sex can be a even more of a turn on if you deepen the emotional engagement with characters through narrative.

    8. Sex can seem even more intimate if presented like a dialogue.

    9. Hot sex doesn't always have to be naked sex.

    10. We need to think outside of rules about "good" and "bad" sex.

    11. Diversity is essential. The best performers are simply comfortable with their bodies and sexualities.

    12. Things like rimming rarely get portrayed, but plenty of people love doing it.

    13. Women openly exploring and enjoying porn is a serious feminist act.

    14. Talking freely about what gets you off is key to sex-positive feminism.
