In search of the fabled “feminist porn” that libfems constantly refer to, I’ve discovered a series of pornographic movies made by director Stone Thicke, called Empowering Women Through Sex.
TRIGGER WARNING: These descriptions include explicit sex acts.
Empowering Women Through Sex I
A woman tells her friend on the phone that, despite her recent law degree, she has decided to become a highly-paid escort. Her friend approves of her sexual empowerment. After hanging up, she advertises her escort services on Craigslist. She gets her first customer, who invites her to a fine restaurant. She puts on her sexiest dress and accessories, and waits for him to pick her up. He is an older gentleman who, she finds out, has been a lawyer for thirty years. They have a scintillating conversation and a five-star meal, after which they go back to his mansion, where he forces her to have anal sex and then punches her in the gut.
Empowering Women Through Sex II
A pizza guy drives up to a sumptuous residence. He rings the doorbell and a beautiful woman answers. She pays for the pizza, and the pizza guy asks if he can have a glass of water. She lets him inside the residence, which is spacious and well furnished in a modern style. The pizza guy asks her about her work, and finds out that she is the president of a non-profit organization that provides meals for poor people in more than 200 urban centers in the United States, and she had to order a pizza because she was too busy to cook for herself that evening. He compliments her for being so successful, and she graciously accept it. After giving him a glass of water, she shows him down to her sex dungeon, where he flogs her and then cums on her face.
Empowering Women Through Sex III
A female boss summons her male secretary to her office. She tells him that his performance at work has been less than satisfactory and that he has often been late. He protests, but it seems his boss’ mind has been made up. He comes up to her and asks her if there’s anything he can do to keep his job. His boss offers to cut his pay. He asks if there’s anything at all he could do for her, takes off his tie and dress shirt, and kneels in front of her legs. She not only fires him, but sues him for sexual harassment.
We can see with the third installment that the series was taking a quite different turn, and the idea just wasn’t that viable to begin with. Still, we have to congratulate Stone Thicke for doing what we thought was impossible: make truly feminist pornography. He is a true hero of this, or any, generation.
