One woman gets off watching her boyfriend put together Ikea furniture. Another fantasizes during her CrossFit class about "tying the trainer up, stripping down with my other class-mates and fucking in front of him. Easy going, good hearted, always horny. English spoken.
‘watch out for thorns’
These are just a couple of the stories found on the NSFW website XConfessionswhich solicits people's fantasies and chooses two each month to turn into short pornographic films. The woman behind this ambitious project is Erika Lust, an award-winning "erotic film director," founder of the feminist-minded production company Lust Films and author of the book "Good Porn: A Woman's Guide.
The remarkable thing is that the stories themselves are plenty engrossing even without the films. If I've learned anything as a sex writer, it's that people treasure their fantasies. Of course they are also ashamed of them, but that rarely lessens the degree to which they are impressed by them. Like dreams, fantasies distill our internal desires and struggles into powerful symbols that can be fascinating to decode; and despite how idiosyncratically weird they can be -- or at least, we tell ourselves that because it adds to the thrill -- they also are so often on some level universal.

That's certainly true of the submissions on Lust's site. Sometimes, they are real-life experiences that people want to see preserved on film. Often, they're far-fetched, seemingly unobtainable fantasies. Some are even poetic:.
She is gone, but I still want her. I want every inch of her beautiful body. Her white velvet skin, the taste of her tongue, the smell of her hair, the way she fit into my arms, the ecstasy she gave me. I miss you Anna.
Even the rejected stories are fascinating -- take this one, spelling errors and all: "I love the smell of acrilic paint. I want to one day bathe in paint with her and just be surrounded with the smell of her paint. This right now is my fantasy. It would be hard to overstate how refreshing these ideas are in contrast to the rote fare of mainstream porn.
And Lust brings them to life in a decidedly artful and cinematic way. From the lighting, to the set, to the actors -- we're talking J. Crew-handsome men, only more rugged and with better facial hair, and gorgeous European girls with enviable bangs -- you feel like you're watching an art house film, only eventually everyone gets naked and has sex. It's great.
I spoke with Lust about what's she's learned from sifting through strangers' sexual fantasies and why she doesn't consider herself a pornographer. Every time I go to a dinner party or meet new people and I tell them what I do for a living, invariably someone says, "Oh, I have this story, you should turn it into a movie. At first the idea was only to have a website, and maybe create some community about our fans.
But then I realized it would be great to choose amongst those confessions which ones should be shot. Yes, infidelity seems to come up often, either as a reality, a fantasy, a threesome, or some combination thereof. Many people also seem to enjoy power games, dominating or being dominated.

Why do you think infidelity is a theme in the confessions? What is it about infidelity that has such a broad appeal? I've recently read "Mating in Captivity" by Esther Perel, a book that I strongly recommend for anyone who wants to learn about infidelity.
She explains that long-term relationships are about confidence, love, proximity and comfort, and all those values are killing eroticism. Passion and sex and attraction are all about mystery, about the unknown. That is why infidelity is such a thing in today's society. But if you ask me tomorrow I may mention another two.
Many of them surprise me, but "Sadistic Trainer" made me laugh out loud. Someone wrote a confessions about their CrossFit trainer being abusive and pushy. So she fantasized about tying him up during the class as revenge, and then holding an orgy with the rest of the class while he watched.
Are the fantasies you receive noticeably different from the typical mainstream porn scenario? Yes, of course. Mainstream porn reflects the imagination and desires of the narrow-minded, chauvinistic and unimaginative minds of male pornographers. Whereas in the minds of the public there is a huge variety of ideas, kinks and fantasies that contain creativity, rich context and, most importantly, relatable characters and locales.
How do you go about choosing your models? They are all so exquisitely unlike what you see in mainstream, L. Is there a certain look or aesthetic that you go for?
I look for people that look like you and me, different body shapes, different ages, different personalities, different races. I try to avoid the porn-plastic-looking guy or girl. Luckily for me, a lot of great new performers approach our production company every day. By the way, anyone wanting to have an opportunity should casting lustfilms. Do you mostly hear from men or women?
‘i tan as i see to garden’
Do you notice any general difference between the fantasies submitted by men and women? What I can assure you, though, is that they are all very creative, surprising and contemporary.
Why do you think people enjoy sharing their fantasies in this sort of public forum? Well, anonymity definitely helps when it comes to shedding inhibitions.

Do you ever get tired of being known as a feminist pornographer? Do you ever wish to be defined by a different descriptor?
To me, it seems your films are not only feminist but deeply artistic. Does the term "feminist pornographer" ever feel limiting or too narrow?
I don't see myself as pornographer, at least what people see when they close their eyes and think about the word "pornographer": a narrow-minded, low-culture, chauvinistic guy, surrounded by sexy younger girls, cars, cigars and drinks. I'm pursuing a career as a filmmaker, a filmmaker exploring the beauty of sex, from a different perspective than mainstream porn -- a female, modern and feminist perspective.
