Post Porn from Barcelona at Fringe! Film Fest

Thanks to Lola Clavo and Nuria Camprecios this year we’ll have  some of Barcelona’s queer porn sexy smart power in London, as part of the Fringe! Film Fest.

On Friday 13th there’s a female ejaculation workshop given by dear friend Diana Pornoterrorista (I’m so curious, it’s my first!), followed by In bed with Madonna or, at the same time in a different place, a lesbian/trans darkroom.

On Saturday 14th there’s a projection of Mi sexualidad es una creación artística / My sexuality is an artistic creation, directed by Lucía Egaña, followed by Q&A with Mariana Echeverri (me) and Maria Llopis. After that we’ll have the pleasure and pain to contemplate a performance by Pornoterrorista! I’ll be contemplating it form really really close.

I’m very excited about it and glad that we’re bringing it to London.

Transcendental Porn Making

There is definitely something wonderful and even transcendental about making porn. I’ve never tried or had the curiosity for mainstream porn. In fact, for me it was never about porn.

There’s a strong feeling of pleasure and power while living such radical moments of freedom.

My own experience comes from a punk, queer environment of great complicity. I’ve lived unique moments of sharing, connecting, understanding without words and I have felt the most deep affection towards people I’ve fucked with. Even in the most casual or professional encounter, there was always love… or something of similar intensity.

In fact, sometimes feelings can be so extreme that instead of love and union there’s an incredible solitude. As if I’d leave my body and the physical would lose its original meaning to make me feel more disconnected and absent than ever.

Water and other fluids

Mandy Barker’s “Soup”

Beautifully alarming.

At first, the visual power of a glorious, colorful chaos will hypnotize you like a mermaid song. Slowly, after starring for a while, the ugliness will erupt; danger, repulsion and awareness of a seriously sad and worrying issue. So glamorous and disgusting!

These impressive images reminded me of “Monster Soup” where this lady drops her tea cup scared by the microscope image of all the filthiness that inhabits Thames’s water, which at the time was London’s directly drinking source.

Fortunately now, we, lucky people, have access to potable water. Although, as clean as it might look, the cycle of water and karma (what goes around comes around) will bring all the corruption back to us. And on its way will also affect millions of other species that have nothing to do with it.

There are all sorts of things in the water. I know these girls that after moving to London, their tits started to grow remarkably. It sounds funny and maybe appealing in a very naive way but that is actually because the water is infested with high levels of estrogen from contraceptive pills.

Signs of sex changes on male fishes have been seen. Also, the most common cosmetic surgery within men in the UK is breast reduction.

Gorgeously scary.

(Well, their spread of feminine regulators is certainly out of hand! )

That’s one of the good reasons why eco-porn is so important: because we need not just new porn but new dirtiness!

Las ejecuciones eran sus tragedias, la pornografia era su romanticismo

“Cu’ando empez’o el cuerpo a vivir sus propias aventuras?, piensa Hombre de las Nieves; tras deshacerse de sus viejas companeras de viaje, la mente y el alma, de las que en otro tiempo se consider’o un mero recept’aculo corrupto, o en todo caso una marioneta que interpretaba sus obras o una compania perniciosa que las llevaba a la deriva. Seguramente hab’ia cansado de las quejas constantes del alma y de los giros incesantes de la mente, tela de arana en espiral tejida por la ansiedad, que lo distra’ian cada vez que se dispon’ia a hincarle el diente a algo jugoso, a meter los dedos en algo bueno. Se hab’ia librado de ellas, las hab’ia arrojado a algun santuario h’umedo a a algun salon mal ventilado mientras el se pon’ia a la cola de algun club de topless, arrojando junto a ellas a la cultura: la m’usica, la pintura, la poesia, el teatro. La sublimaci’on y todo eso. Nada mas que sublimacion, segun su cuerpo. Por que no cortarla de raiz?

Pero el cuerpo ten’ia sus propias formas de cultura. Ten’ia su propio arte. Las ejecuciones eran sus tragedias, la pornografia era su romanticismo.”

Oryx y Crake, Margaret Atwood

–Transcrito dentro de lo posible con un British teclado en la tienda de Mac en medio de thousands de personas conectadas y entre dos iMac gigantes rodeados de ninos sobreexcitados haciendose fotos compulsivamente con el Photo Booth. Me siento un poco como Hombre de las Nieves contemplando desde su ‘arbol–

Pervert and Bizarre

El Hentai es la escusa perfecta para apreciar y deleitarse con sexo de lo más convencional y sexista sin sentimientos de culpabilidad político-activista, por que son dibujos. Close-ups maravillosos y un culto al falo de lo más monstruoso y sensual. Mucha brutalidad y una liberación enfermiza tan fabulosa como una mega eyaculación.

Y con Mondo Bizarro (desde uno de mis links favoritos) me he deleitado entre la estética 70′s-freak-dark-sexy y las verdaderas bizarradas, un tanto o cuanto dadaístas.

I

It really is a sick world…

Me ha gustado mucho la contraposición hecha por las chicas de Nazi Exploitation entre las violaciones en la ficción y la violencia pactada en las prácticas de BDSM, muy interesante e importante de analizar.

Tengo una amiga que no se lleva muy bien con sentimientos agresivos, supongo que tendrá sus trucos para intentar manejarlo. Sin embargo, después de la Muestra Marrana, ha soñado que se enfadaba con alguien que iba a por una gran pistola y lo mataba. Sin duda es efectiva la exteriorizar las perversidades.

Festival Marrano (or Dirty -better Nasty- Festival, in english)

Empieza este fin de semana la tercera Muestra Marrana y tengo muchas ganas de deleitarme con las guarradas extremas del programa. Tengo una especial curiosidad por la selección Hentai que ha hecho Patri.

El viernes se visualizarán algunos de los nuevos cortos de Barbara Degenevieve, presentados por María Llopis y luego comentados por quien quiera hacerlo. Yo estaré en la mesa para decir lo que me han parecido.

Y, para seguir el Post hablando de Porno (haha), aquí os dejo el vídeo promo del Paris Porn Film Festival, para el cual SWITCH! (que se puede ver este Domingo en la MM3) ha sido seleccionado:

Some thoughts about Porn

I must be such a sexual person that sometimes I forget I did porn once… (and still)


-If I watch hardcore porn it must be really hardcore from the beginning till the end, with no pause, maybe just for a quick change of position.

-If the main image is raw genitalia, which I like sometimes, it must be fast, no longer that 2 minutes or it just turns into gore (which can also be amusing).

-If it starts with a fight (I really like harsh fights) it mustn’t turn into “sex”.  I hate when I am watching sexy brutal violence and suddenly people starts to fuck.

-I like when people suck dildos (or some other object), I don’t think of them as a penis, I just think is wonderful to suck.

-Fucking in public doesn’t specially turn me on, I always forget everybody around.

-It’s extremely boring to watch feminine people being fucked by masculine people all the time. I like to see big men and big butches moaning like little girls.
