Erika Lust’s series XConfessions, takes real women’s fantasies and recreates them on the screen. FEMINIST & SUBMISSIVE stemmed from Maybe’s submitted fantasy:
“I see myself as a feminist. I like to challenge people on their opinions even if they are just a little bit sexist. I care about showing off my female sexuality, and I wish that this was more accepted in our society. My boyfriend probably thinks I would like to dominate a man and overrule him with my female sexuality. But my dirtiest fantasy is actually to BE dominated by man.
A random man who is so attracted by my female sexual expression that he can’t resist me. He would grab my filthy ass really hard and tell me that he is going to fuck me no matter what I say. He goes under my skirt and starts to eat my pussy, still with my panties on, while he tells me how much he loves my wet pussy and how much he’s wanted it for a long time. He will rip off my clothes and talk very dirty and harsh to me. He will lead the whole act, and I will enjoy being thrown around by a man who knows what he wants. There will be spanking, ass licking, pussy eating, dick sucking and a lot of sex poses that he demands. It will be very intense and in the end I will feel blown away as we both lie down sweaty and exhausted.”
Watch as Lina Bembe and Owen Gray bring Maybe’s fantasy to life beginning with a conversation between both actors about consent, limits, and boundaries. FEMINIST SUBMISSIVE then delves into a round table conversation with feminists Viktoria Vaar, Silvia Rubi, Lina Bembe and the director herself to discuss what it means to be a feminist submissive. Part fiction, part documentary; FEMINIST SUBMISSIVE is sure to ignite sex-positive conversation after the screening… and perhaps some play later at home. (49 min)
Following both films will be a short introduction to S&M play presented by Allena Gabosch.
