Each director on the panel represents various corners of professional erotica production. The discussion will focus on the importance of intertwining explicit sex with high production values and immersive narratives for total audience engagement.
Shine Louise Houston explained her method of intertwining explicit sex in film. “I film sex like dialogue,” Houston shared. “In the edit, I construct a succinct narrative that honestly reflects the talents’ experiences, and the sex scenes are integrated into the overall rhythm of the story.”
“At its core, every story is a slice of life – and sex is central to life,” Angie Rowntree stated. “I use sex in my films as a means of communicating things words can’t express, like music or dance. It’s a way to convey emotions and sensations when words are an insufficient vehicle.”
For Dee Severe, sex in film is a tool to dispel misconceptions. “I strive to show authentic BDSM lifestyles, complete with love, humor, intimacy — and explicit sex,” Severe shared. “So much of the real emotional interaction between people occurs during sex, so why censor that?”Panelists will also discuss various social and cultural issues impacting adult content production today including safety standards, workplace ethics, representation, and common misperceptions of porn.
