With her almond-shaped eyes and her angelic face, Lucie Blush explores the world of a feminist alt-porn on her platform luciemakesporn since January 2014. Living actually in Berlin, the 28 years old French girl, offers to the audience a mix of erotic scenes, short movies that she defines as “feminist porn”.

Always coming up with productions that would make jealous any professional of the scene, we wanted to know more about her.

How would you introduce yourself to someone which never heard about your work?  

I’m a woman, a feminist, a porn director and performer. I show sex the way I experience it in my own life, without shame, stereotypes or gender bias. I basically work to bring the fun back into porn.

The definition of the word “feminism” is subject to an impressive amount of definitions, and create wars over internet. What would be your definition?  

I think the problem is that everybody seems to have their own definition of feminism. My definition is the one you can find in the dictionary, it’s the fight for women’s rights based on gender equality.

Too many people have a biased and stereotyped view of feminism, so it’s time to remind ourselves of its true meaning. It’s not about hating men, or about victimizing women, but about acknowledging the disparities and prejudices between genders and doing something about it.

Is Feminism-porn a way to be an activist, or just two of your passions linked together?  

It’s definitely a form of activism. Between rape culture, slut shaming, pro-life bullshit and the stupid porn laws our governments put in place as a tool to put women down, like in England where you can’t show female ejaculation in porn, we can’t ignore the political aspect of feminist porn. Society has always repressed women and their sexuality, so feminist porn is a way to fight against that, by showing empowered women who take control of their sexuality and who are not objects.

Which advice would you give to “traditional porn” scene?  

Make sure your performers are treated right, that they can say ‘stop’ at all times, and that they’re truly having fun. Also, try to put yourself in the women’s shoes once in a while.

Are your movies a way to educate men to Feminism?  

First, it’s a way to educate myself about my own right to sexuality. Then, the fact that I make the choice, for myself, to express my fantasies and show my body in my movies, shows both men and women that feminism is all about freedom of choice. They see women who are not afraid to say what they want and to live their sexuality freely. Men or women, we all have patriarchy’s nasty roots imprinted in our minds, so I hope my work can help people realize it doesn’t have to be like that.

There is always a very neat atmosphere in your movies, What is your secret?  

Working with a team of talented people, that’s very important! And, of course, the light, it’s all about good lighting! I also like to show people’s faces more than their genitals, it’s way more impactful.

We are fan of music at Mutine, what is your favorite band or what do you listen on your free time? 

I’ve always been a fan of stoner rock and metal, Fantomas, Kyuss, Pelican, Toundra… But nowadays I listen to everything, and only the best stuff (for a few months now, I’ve been working on making the best playlist in the world) : Björk, Spooks, Erykah Badu, Nneka, Tom Waits… I felt in love with Mulatu Astatke and, of course, the Berlin techno.
