NEW YORK — Following the success of The 2nd Annual Feminist Porn Conference and her win at the 2014 Feminist Porn Awards, Tristan Taormino is set to give a lecture on feminist porn at Harvard University.

“I gave an anal sex workshop to a standing room only crowd at Harvard as part of Sex Week in 2012. I am thrilled to return to campus to talk about one of my passions: the radical potential of feminist porn to transform sexual representation,” said Taormino, who just won a 2014 Feminist Porn Award for her educational film “Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Bondage for Couples,” produced by Adam & Eve Pictures.

Her lecture, “Feminist Porn: The Politics of Producing Pleasure,” will be held Wednesday, April 30 at 8 p.m. at the Fong Auditorium (Boylston Hall) on the Harvard campus.

It is sponsored by Harvard University’s Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (osapr.harvard.edu) as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Her appearance is also sponsored in part by Good Vibrations and Sportsheets, the two companies for which Taormino serves as Brand Ambassador.

Taormino says she will be raffling off prizes from Good Vibrations and Sportsheets at her talk.

Taormino has authored eight books on sexuality and relationships and edited 25 anthologies. She is co-editor of “The Feminist Porn Book: The Politics of Producing Pleasure,” a collection of work by scholars, academics, producers and performers about feminist porn, published by The Feminist Press; the book is a finalist for a 2014 Lambda Literary Award.

As the head of adult film production company Smart Ass Productions, she has directed and produced 24 sex education and porn films, including the series based on real female kink fantasies, “Rough Sex,” and the “Expert Guide” sex education series, which she created for Vivid-Ed.
