Personal Quotes (2)

I pledge 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 is a pleasure to all of the senses and those seeking an alternative to porn can find a home.
[on why she decided to direct erotic cinema as an activist] At the University of Lund, even though I was studying, thinking and reading about porn, I didn't actually like any of the porn that I saw," she remembers. "The first time I saw a porn film, I had the same reaction that many women have - while I was aroused by some of the images, for the most part I found it unsatisfying. The audiovisual quality was awful. I didn't identify with anything that I saw. The women did not look like they were enjoying themselves, and the sexual situations were totally ridiculous. We're modern women! Not slutty Sharons, horny teens, desperate housewives, hot nurses, and nymphomaniac hookers, always looking to service pimps, multi-millionaires or macho sex machines. Not always looking to please rather than be pleased. I wanted to know: where was my lifestyle, my values, my sexuality?
