State Funds “Feminist” Porn

dirtydiaries-flashergirl-metro

The recent release of a series of hardcore porn movies entirely funded by the Swedish government for being “feminist porn” which “challenges traditional gender roles” has angered some who think the state should not be making pornography with taxpayer funds.

Most oddly of all it seems the Swedish state is funding feminists to organise illegal acts of indecent exposure, as pictured above…

The short films, titled “Dirty Diaries,” include a variety of themes, all centred on hardcore sex, and incorporating all sexual orientations. They received 500,000 kronor, roughly $70,000, from the government. All the makers are or “have become” women.

A preview is visible on their (English) website.

Creator Mia Engberg describes how she is at the vanguard of the assault on the patriarchy with her porn movies:

“Throughout the history of art, the image of woman has been created by men. The gaze has been a man’s gaze and female sexuality has been limited to a few identities that have suited the patriarchal system (and the male artistic ego): whore, wife, mother, muse.

So what is feminist porn? There’s no easy answer to that question. Dirty Diaries is made up of twelve very different films: soft erotica and hardcore porn, hetero and homo, provocation, penetration and visual poetry… This is just the beginning, and I hope to see the creation of more alternative images that challenge stereotypical gender roles.”

The public body responsible for funding the project, the Swedish Film Institute, says feminist porn is completely superior to regular sexist porn and so deserves state funds:

“Everyone in the films is over the age of 18, no one is doing anything against their will, everyone shares equally in the money from the films. All of this makes Mia Engberg’s project different from regular porn in many ways. This is an ambitious project that in both form and content lives up to the demands we set for the projects we support.”

Engberg herself says the money could not be better spent than by her, on lesbian porn:

“We are producing 70 minutes of high quality film… it’s just 500,000 kronor. They couldn’t spend the money any better.”

However, when asked whether regular porn made by men should be given the same treatment, she is outraged:

“They should not be given any money at all, especially when they are making money out of women’s bodies.”

    Wow.. feminazis yet again... sheesh, I mean, "feminist porn is superior to normal porn and deserves state funds" ? WTF? I watched the vid, it's the same thing, only with louder music, sheesh, because it has the word feminist, it's automatically ok to force the guys to pay for it too? Porn is porn no matter what you do,and when you try to differentiate it to further feminism, it just isn't right...

    This director is probably the sort of person who calls lesbian rape the "good kind" of rape.

    I hope not. I would have to hunt her down and bash her head into a huge dog-turd repeatedly until she comes to her senses, in that case.

    LMFAO. Their entire cause just went down the drain with that last statement. “They should not be given any money at all, especially when they are making money out of women’s bodies."

    That is exactly what they are doing. They are making money out of women's bodies. Fucking hypocrites. Feminists (radical or stupid ones) should just go die. They are a plague on the earth.

    I never grow tired of saying how much a hate Feminazis,
    i really wish they could answer me why are they so concerned about stupid things like loli 2d porn, yet they do nothing for women all around the world that are abused and used as a trade thing. i guess the truth is they care nothing for their gender and only want to piss of men because they are so fucking ugly that nobosy wants them...

    Jeeze. This is just stupid.

    These so-called-feminists give real feminists a bad name. Hypocritical assholes. They're still making money off of the female body.

    Fund one, fund them all. The only difference between normal porn and this woman's porn is that normal porn doesn't seem to be in denial of what it is.

    The question on my mind is, how soon before someone ripz this so *everyone* can get a look at how "superior" their pr0n actually is,
    without having to pay for it (twice over, if you happen to be Swedish)?

    Heh, beats any earmarks I'd seen coming from the U.S.
    Shit, I wouldn't mind my tax money going into funding these projects, so long as they're readily available to the general public for free...

    This isn't hypocrisy. It's cleverly disguised marketing. It's 71199 dollars for 70 dollars worth of porn, and since there is no other porn the men are forced to buy. THEY FUCKING MONOPOLIZED THE PORN INDUSTRY. FUCK

    so just because a woman made it, the government is funding it? she says that male pornographers just make money off women's bodies, and yet she's getting money to do practically the same thing... how ridiculous! it doesn't matter whether the woman is the dominant role or not, porn is porn and the government shouldn't be paying her to express her radical feminazi ideals. she has her own money to produce her amateur shit with.

    Equality? Where's equality? Equality jumped out the window when this campaign started... now it's just the feminazis in a pseudo-Germany...

    Oops, sorry that insults the Germans, I meant whatever right-cunted country that feminazi's can go crawling back to...

    All efforts, focus and money are wasted on those pointless eroge ban and to make their home-made pr0n instead of helping real women in middle east and other countries.. Good job, biatches!

    I should note that the porn includes peeing on males... That is discrimination against men.

    Baka, that woman is stupid, one of the most popular erotica maker is Suze Randall, a photographer that
    has worked for Penthouse and other, and flooded the internet with porn both soft and hard, and...

    There is no such thing as gender in the field of excellence, great work should be acknowledge no matter who did it. But the above statement make a mockery of her own professionalism and show how radical feminist are the worst. The only thing worse than this article is the government funding this project .

    (Drill Speaking} Anyways I don't believe this. I thought feminist radicals were against pornography because it devalues women. Isn't this a double standard? Radical Feminists attack hentai game makers and yet they are making porn themselves? Umm right wtf seriously. Just do whatever the fuck you want to the world.

    However if this is an article about the good feminists which fight for hentai anime/game freedoms, etc. I'd have to say: "Good job for you."

    Hmm I dunno what stance to take on this.

    What I don't like is how they seem to think they are revolutionary in doing this. They seem to think they have created a new type of porn. Well, they haven't. I'm sure most porn productions have men earning the most money thanks to a sexy girl, but especially online there are plenty of productions where girls do porn videos themselves and thus earn the money themselves. Its funny it turned into a funding issue as well for the most part. They talk about stereotypes and gender roles, but most porn i have seen is already quite equal in this aspect. Some are absolutely portraying women badly, but its even more common that gender roles are neutral I think. Where both actors are shown in an equal sexy way and doing things that I would describe being neutral as far as gender roles go, based on what sexual acts are done and preformed.

    Giving this funding as some sort of cultural interesting thing i can see. Governments have funded more stupid things before. But they way they seem elitist about it is annoying as they more or less say "our porn is better then all other porn". I would normally be interested in seeing this porn, but not only don't I like their attitude about it... I also have to ask, couldn't they have spend the money better? The trailer on the website makes it look

    (damn, i hit "add comment" to soon, as i said..)
    The trailer on the website makes it look really cheap as far as production goes. Bad quality, lighting and set design. I have studied movie making and can say that I could easily make the same with no money. They say it was important to give equal pay to everyone involved, and to me it looks like they just split the money between themselves and used a minor sum for the actual production. Way to go, with they amount of money you could have filmed something much better. But I guess I would have to watch the entire thing to say for sure.

    This government is full of shit to fund a femdom porn type of film.
    I would prefer the money to go for the treatment on sick people instead.

    And femdom is a niche for very mental unstable people.

    So, they need to steal literally around the USD equivalent of $300,000 to produce a collection of exploitation porn films which they charge upwardly of $40 USD for in an attempt to bash Capitalism.

    So, the best way to decry making money is to make money?

    That's like saying the best way to prevent rape is to rape a lot of people at once.

    Also, are they trying to be a new Dane Extremism? Can't they just rent Pola X or In The Realm of the Senses and call it a day? So, feminist porn is essentially Salo?

    I don't see how she's doing anything new.

    Goto kink.com or other sites and you can watch 2 women wrestle eachother in the ring and the loser gets laid. Or 2 amatuer girls in their bedroom making out and posting it on youporn or redtube, people do it and post it, and fuck mainstream porno. It's not like she's doing anything extraordinarily groundbreaking here ithink
