THINKING PORN THAT ENGAGES YOUR MIND, HEART AND LIBIDO
The woman behind the multiple award-winning, independent website BRIGHT DESIRE calls herself Ms. Naughty. As of this yeat she is also known as the Indie Porn Icon at the Toronto International Porn Festival 2017. Needless to say we like the name and we like what she has been doing for the past eight years: filming hot porn that shows intimacy, authenticity, joy and open-mindedness. Next to Ms. Naughty’s tastefully explicit films, her website also offers erotic fiction, very sexy photography, interviews with performers, film reviews and columns. Bright Desire has a feminist foundation with a focus on heterosexual sex meant for women and men. For a while now it includes queer and non-heteronormative scenes as well.
Ms. Naughty didn’t start out as a filmmaker. She worked as a librarian and a freelance journalist, writing for a Playgirl-type magazine called Australian’s Women’s Forum. Her career in making and curating porn started in 2000. Ms. Naughty created an adult website called For The Girls for straight women, which you can still visit. Her blog Ms Naughty followed and in 2009 she shot her first erotic short film, called THAT’S WHAT I LIKE. After winning the Petra Joy Award that same year she continued creating and editing what she calls ‘smart porn’, leading up to the launch of Bright Desire in 2012. In 2014 Ms. Naughty’s released her first feature film called THE FANTASY PROJECT, inspired by american author Nancy Friday’s book My Secret Garden, about the diversity and finger-burning hotness of female fantasies.
Due to its old cliches and limitations, old-style pornography can make quite a dumb impression. We could mention the pizza boy again, right? With her videos Ms. Naughty steers away from that image and makes films that are about the liberation of sex, about having fun and not only having your libido engaged but also your mind. Erotica and porn start in the head, not between the legs.
Ms. Naughty of Bright Desire
explores in HAND JOBS the intense pleasure we can give one another with our hands. TASTE is a taboo-breaking film about real-life couple Summer and Adria going on a journey of the senses, female domination and male anal pleasure. In YES, SIR adult performer Mickey Mod shows what happens when Siouxsie enters his playroom. Oh dear…
Then there are also the cheeky SOLO VOICE OVER SERIES, where you can get inspired by women and men masturbating on their own. To increase the intensity of the experience, Ms. Naughty uses voice over to reveal what they are fantasising about while loving themselves.
Ms. Naughty works with great performers from the sex-positive adult scene, such as Jiz Lee, Pandora Blake, Mickey Mod and Bishop Black. No typical porn performers here, but people with charisma and charm. Many couples are real-life couples or close friends, such as Theo Meow and Candy Flip in the exclusive video THEO AND CANDY – PHOTOPLAY – yes, the crazy bunch from Berlin! On Bright Desire there is a lot for you to discover and feel so very good about. So how about you getting all naughty & spicy, press the button and enjoy all the short films and erotic scenes Ms. Naughty has shot over the passed eight years. Hmm?
The taboo on showing real sex in mainstream film means that there’s an artificial wall built between “real art” and “porn.” But those things aren’t mutually exclusive. It’s only people’s concept of “genre” that has built that wall.
