A commentary and resource on Law and Sexuality by Professor Chris Ashford and guests

The Rise of Lesbian Porn

OK, I’m cheating slightly. The Daily Beast reported this story last month but January’s quiet and I never have enough lesbian stories so here we are. The newspaper site included an interview with former lawyer, now pornographer (what is it with us legal folks and sex?), Jincey Lumpkin. She runs the site Juicy Pink Box which you can view here (NSFW) and it includes what I regard as a very tame trailer on the front page.

The site describes itself in typically glowing terms:

‘Juicy Pink Box isn’t your Daddy’s porn company. Envisioned, founded and maintained by a woman, this is real lesbian sex captured in full cinematic luster.

We produce original pornographic film series that are available exclusively on JuicyPinkBox.com. Each series is centered around a general concept. The episodes relate to the concept but can also stand alone as erotic vignettes.

We collaborate with artists and visionaries to achieve a high standard of quality. Maintaining an elevated aesthetic is central to our work. We do not script dialog; all the reactions in the films are natural. We are inspired by classic cinema, iconic photographers and progressive fashion trends.

Our work has been honored by screenings around the world, including Berlin’s Porn Film Festival 2009, Cheries-Cheries LGBT Film Festival 2009 in Paris, and Cinekink 2010 in New York City. The site was a 2010 Feminist Porn Awards nominee.’

The company explicitly seeks to contrast itself with the more hardcore ‘dyke’ porn produced in San Francisco – think for instance of the fabulous queer performer James Darling who answered some of my students porn questions in this blog post.

That I find the front page trailer tame, dull even is a good thing. I’m not the target audience. The films are written, cast, and shot for a lesbian audience turned-off by so-called dyke porn and tired of male ideas about what makes good girl-on-girl action. The report came in the wake of a recent survey by a leading lesbian networking site in Europe which showed more than 70 percent of gay women would buy more porn if it were targeted to a lesbian audience.
