MONTREAL — Bree Mills and Pure Taboo have announced the release of “Airtight Invasion,” a dark erotic thriller written by and starring Lena Paul, available today.
Mills directed the tense drama, which highlights a rough “revenge” airtight sex scene — including anal, an intense double penetration and a messy facial finish — after Paul’s character Veronica is taken and held by a trio of criminals (Bambino, Codey Steele and Johnny Goodluck).
“I've never felt drawn to expressing my own personal trauma in my porn because I generally find it a little inappropriate to air your dirty laundry online,” said Paul of writing the provocative scene. “However, when Bree approached me to write a story for Pure Taboo, I felt it was an opportunity to share my own experiences in a serious adult piece.
“The parameters of my story stem from a recurring nightmare I had after being assaulted,” Paul added. “I’d like to offer this project as my #MeToo, in that I wanted to create a story that women who’ve suffered trauma could feel empowered about watching.
“A lot of women who watch porn, particularly rough sex scenarios, after experiencing trauma feel a lot of shame about it, despite it being an extremely common fantasy (top five actually, according to some studies) for women,” she continued.
“It was my desire to thread the needle of empowering women while also placing my character in a seemingly dangerous or degrading setting to talk about how this juxtaposition can feel both complicated and pleasurable for viewers,” Paul concluded. “I hope, in the end, that ‘Airtight Invasion’ will continue our industry’s conversations about female empowerment and representation.”
