PORTLAND, Oregon — Sex educator and pornographer Tristan Taormino will be the host at the U.S. debut of "The Feminist Porn Show” sponsored by the She Bop female-friendly sex boutique in Portland on June 5.

Show organizers said the event, to be held at the Mississippi Studios, will showcase feminist porn's growing movement.

Taormino will introduce the audience to the concept of feminist porn and discuss its history, along with a screening of selected short clips from filmmakers around the world.

Taormino told XBIZ, “I think it's [feminist porn] gaining serious momentum. The Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto were bigger and more sophisticated this year than ever before. There are new filmmakers on the scene and there is a sense of community among the directors, producers, performers, retailers and fans who support feminist porn.”

The clip show features the work of both pioneers and newcomers, including Fatale Video, Candida Royalle, Annie Sprinkle, Nina Hartley, Jackie Strano and Shar Rednour, Petra Joy, Erika Lust, Shine Louise Houston, Anna Brownfield, Carlos Batts, N. Maxwell Lander, Emilie Jouvet, Louise Lush, Jaiya, Maria Beatty, Buck Angel, Madison Young, Courtney Trouble, Morty Diamond, Tobi Hill-Meyer, Kelly Shibari, Loree Erickson and more.

The screenings will be followed by a discussion exploring current issues surrounding feminist porn.

“Tristan Taormino is a leader in the growing feminist porn movement, and the show she has put together is fantastic. We are so thrilled to bring her to Portland for its U.S. debut. We know people will find it inspiring, thought-provoking, and very sexy,” Evy Cowan, co-owner of She Bop said.

A pre-show featuring a sexy performance by Felice Shays will also be presented.

DVDs from the featured filmmakers and Taormino will be on sale. The host will also be available for signings.

A show after party is also scheduled at the adjoining Bar Bar.

Tickets are $25 and available at She Bop, 909 N. Beech Street, at Mississippi Studios, 3939 N. Mississippi, ($1 box office fee), or online via Ticket Biscuit ($4.40 service charge).
