Erika Lust

Erotic Film Director and Author

Erika Lust is an acclaimed erotic film director and author who pledges "to create new waves in adult cinema, to show all of the passion, intimacy, love and lust in sex: where the feminine viewpoint is vital, the aesthetic a pleasure to all of the senses, and those seeking an alternative to porn can find a home."

She is the director of five award winning explicit films: XConfessions, Cabaret Desire, Life Love Lust, Barcelona Sex Project, and Five Hot Stories for Her.

In addition, Lust has written several books including Good Porn: a Woman's Guide, The Erotic Bible to Europe, La Canción de Nora, and Let's Make a Porno: a Practical Guide to Filming Sex.
