I dare anyone that never heard of tentacle porn, never liked it, or never thought this genre could possibly be feminist to enter this scriptwriting workshop. Of course, if you already are a huge fan of the Japanese science-fiction genre of alien creatures operating multiple penetrations on humans – you are also very much welcome!

This workshop will give you an introduction to the genre of tentacle porn. Then moving on to introducing my upgraded feminist version, which is trying to answer the questions below.

What if tentacle porn told the story of female sexuality through female tentacle monsters? What would that monster look like, and how would she fuck you?

Together we will create a female tentacle porn monster, to see what answers we might come up with. I will teach you a simple method of porn scriptwriting. Finally, it is time for you to get to work and to write your own porn scene! I will be available for feedback.

In the end of the workshop you are given the opportunity to submit your scene to a writer’s competition. I will chose one of the submitted scenes and make a video adaptation of it. The video will be non-commercially distributed as a production of my own label Lo-Fi Cherry Porno Pics. The winner also gets a rewarding fee of 30€ as encouragement for a continuing feminist porn writing career.

Lo-Fi Cherry is originally from Sweden where she started investigating the concept of porn and female desires at the age of twenty two, shooting a post porn production in a ”fair trade porn”- collective in Stockholm. Since then, Lo-Fi Cherry have produced her own video pieces and porn. She also worked as a phone sex hostess and gave webcam sex shows. Currently situated in Berlin she continues to produce videos and workshops, now focusing on feminist tentacle porn. A feminist examination and play with different takes on the Japanese bondage porn genre. 2014 she was nominated for the Feminist Porn Awards for her feminist tentacle porn short “Space Labia”.

Previous workshops she held have been on ”pin-upping” for beginners, porn scriptwriting and porn as a feminist tool under her label Lo-Fi Cherry Porno Pics. Lo-Fi Cherry combines feminist ideas and DIY-activism, but are not afraid to borrow storytelling and aesthetics from mainstream productions. All her work aims to be educational and to inspire people to think outside the box, following the Lo-Fi Cherry Porno Pics’ slogan: “The art to the porn to the people”.
