In case you haven't heard already, I am behind organising the London screening of a documentary called The UnSlut Project next week Thursday at The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square.
The project came about as I was getting more involved with the actvism aspect of the adult business and saw a void that needed filling where the adult business was under attack with very few people interested in openly defending it.
The film directed by Emily Lindin deals with the topic of slut shaming and sexual bullyng which I feel resonates with the sex workerncommunity as much as it does with civilians like Emily Lindin who was inspired to make this film from her own experience of it when she was 14.
Bullying is a terrible thing to a young person growing up, especially young ondividual discovering their own sexuality at a difficult time of their lives without the experience of understanding the emotions that effect the way they see themselves.
I feel very strongly about this fim which is why I chose it for my inaugural screening in what I hope will be a quarterly event using films and documentaries as a base to engage an audience in discussion so that we can move forward than stay stuck in stasis to repeat the same argument over again. This is a recurring pattern and why porn debates put me to sleep.
It is perhaps this reason why I called myself The Naked Truth Film Club since in essence the truth is what I would like to see behind these discussions to weigh up if porn is morally right or wrong. To date it has all been down to personal choice and consent which seems to be lost on those who have an agenda to shut it down.
The screening is followed by a Q&A which I am filming as part of the event as a resource and record of the event. The speakers will be Myles Jackman (Obscenity lawyer oft thought of as The Batman of porn given his success defending clients) Jerry Barnett (Sex & Censorship) Pandora Blake (feminist pornographer) Charlotte Rose (Sexual Freedom Campaigner) and Laura Renvoize (Advocate of Sexworkers at Goldsmiths University)
You can read more about Emily Lindin behind the making of this documentary here. There will be other stars of the adult entertainment business in attendance that day too. Ava Koxxx will be there to sign her book “Tales From Miss Hollywood” and Anastasia Luxx, Tiffany Morris (who was featured on Real Couples some years ago) and others. I must also thank AdultWork.com, Pay4xxx, XCreds, and the producers association UKAP for backing the brunt of the cost to make this event possible and I hope that many of you can support this with donations to see it go on beyond the day as I am already in discussions with other film makers to host their films as events in future. Hopefully I will see you next Thursday afternoon
