Feminist pornography refers to a genre of film developed by and/or for women. It was created for the purposes of encouraging women and their self-beliefs of freedom through sexuality, equality and pleasure. Third-wave feminists are open to seeking freedom and rights of sexual equality through entering the adult entertainment workforce. Second wave feminists, unlike the third, often have a solidified belief in the oppression and/or objectification inherent in all pornography. The conflict between the two waves causes many struggles between these two different feminist views.Feminists have disputed pornography ever since the Women’s Movement commenced, and the debate gained notorious vehemence throughout the Feminist Sex Wars of the 1980s. Although there is no specific production considered the primary paradigm of feminist porn, feminist porn originated in the 1980s. The contemporary feminist porn association acquired solemn momentum in the 2000s because of the Feminist Porn Awards (FPAs) by Good For Her in Toronto in 2006, which place the notion of overall introduced feminist porn to society. The FPAs spread awareness about feminist porn amongst a broader audience, encouraged extra media exposure and assisted in uniting a community of filmmakers, performers, and fans. Feminist porn has various ideas and definitions.Tristan Taormino is a sex educator, feminist pornographer, and co-editor of The Feminist Porn Book, who defines feminist pornography as dedicated to gender equality and social justice. Feminist pornography is porn that is generated in a fair manner, signifying that performers are paid a reasonable salary and most importantly treated with care and esteem; their approval, security, and well-being are vital, and what they bring to the production is appreciated. Feminist porn searches to expand the ideas about desire, beauty, gratification, and power through unconventional representations, aesthetics, and film making styles. The overall aim of feminist porn is to empower the performers who produce it and the people who view it.
