LOS ANGELES — Director Candida Royalle will host a free webinar, “Writing Erotica for Film,” presented by the Sinclair Institute on BetterSex.com, at 7 p.m. this Wednesday.
In line with Sinclair Institute’s mission statement championing adult sexual health and education, the interactive webinar will highlight the positive impact erotica has on intimate relationships. Royalle will also discuss a breadth of topics, including the origins of present -day erotica and tips on how to transform written erotica into a successful script. She also will answer audience members’ queries live throughout the program.
“We are fortunate to have Candida share her 30 years of valuable knowledge and insight in this free hour-long interactive Sinclair sponsored webinar,” said Rebecca Cook, director of marketing and new business development at Sinclair Institute. “Sinclair feels that erotica is a great way for couples to open communication about desire and fantasy. It is a healthy way to explore new, fresh ideas and for many women is a terrific way to help boost libido and improve arousal.”
Royalle gained public traction in both the adult and academic communities for her erotic films featuring plotlines from a female perspective. In 1984, Royalle founded the production company Femme Productions Inc. to further her vision to include the female voice in adult films. Her work was lauded by consumers as well as the therapeutic and sexology communities, and she has lectured at the Smithsonian Institute, the American Psychiatric Association's national conference and the World Congress on Sexology.
“Candida Royalle is a fascinating woman and industry icon who has paved the way for what has become an enormous demand by women, men and couples for storyline, romance-driven erotica,” Cook said.
Since 1991, the Sinclair Institute has developed video and products dedicated to fostering communication and intimacy between partners. Other educational webinars are currently available on their website, including “The Better Sex Resolution to Live Better and Love Better Webinar Series” with Dr. Diana Wiley and “Is Sex Good For You?” with Dr. Herb Samuels.
