Erika shoots the fantasies of her fans

One of the stories that you were most impressed by:

There are several, and for different reasons. Sometimes it’s what these confessions tell, sometimes it’s how they are told, even if it there are not that original, theme-wise. One I found really surprising is that of a woman who gets through her CrossFit classes by fantasizing with the idea of tying up her sadistic trainer and having an orgy with the rest of her class mates in front of him. I mean, that is unexpected!

What are the limits?

Obviously, everything has to happen between consenting adults or we won’t even consider publishing them. We don’t actually get many far out submissions, but at the end of the day we are curating our site, so we reserve the right to not publishing things we don’t find appealing.

Taking a look at pornographic material produced today, what kind of human portrait comes out?

Not a very flattering one! Porn has become a way of perpetuating gender power structures, of showing men as the center of all pleasure and creating unrealistic and unalterable images about how people — and women in special — should behave and feel in bed.

Do you think there are still some spectator fantasies that remain unmet?

Yes, indeed! People often don’t realize that the reason we don’t film one of their fantasies is because we can not afford to! There are physical limits to what can be shot — and to what can be done in terms of sex. So if your secret desire is to bed a roman gladiator or a medieval knight…

Is there any risk that the desire to look exceed that of living — a sexual act?

Well, this is an interesting question, and one I think that applies to social media in general. Are we spending too much time in Instagram or Twitter? Are we more concerned about “liking” our favorite causes than actually promoting them? But this danger has been there since the Lumière Brothers started out! I suppose that it all boils down to every individual…

Do you think the term “phobia” is the most appropriate to define a certain way of dealing with different sexualities?

A phobia is something that scares you. But, as someone said, if you are homophobic, you are not scared by gays, you are just an idiot.

What kind of importance takes feminism in our society?

Not enough, if you ask me! It’s more important than ever to reclaim the word, as sexism is alive and well — sometimes in very sneaky ways —, and wanting true equality is not a whim but a necessity for the future of humanity. Feminism should be at the center of political discussion, not in the fringes.

Do you think Eroticism and Porn should always be separated?

Well, they are overlapping categories. Porn is supposed to be explicit, while Eroticism, isn’t, but aside from that, you can’t really argue that one is necessarily more tasteful than or sophisticated than the other.

The memory of your childhood you’re most fond of:

Fishing with my grandfather in a small island two hours away from Stockholm.

Thanks
