Feminist Moms Film Porno to Show Their Kids What Empowered Women Look Like

“We need to show kids that there’s something else.”

A group of five women are making a porno to show their children what empowered women look like – when they’re having sex.

That’s the premise of a TV show called “Mums Make Porn” set to premiere next week on British TV. The three-part series on Channel 4 sees the mothers watch various types of hardcore internet pornography, and then work with experts to create an alternative product that promotes “normal”-looking women and egalitarian sex.

“We need to show kids that there’s something else than this horrible shit we see on the internet,” said one of the moms, 40-year-old wedding photographer Sarah Louise. “Porn doesn’t represent normal women, the actors and actresses they use mislead kids. They need to realise it’s not normal.”

“If my son treated a woman like that I would kick his ass to kingdom come,” she added.

Channel 4 made clear that the women will not star in their adult film, but rather help produce and direct it.

“We’re proud to put parents in the director’s chair,” network executive Sarah Lazenby told the Mirror.

Sarah Louise, a beautician and mother of six, said her personal goal had been to fight unrealistic porn-star beauty standards, and she was “extremely proud” of the finished product. Just by participating in the show, she added, the moms had contributed to the cause of female representation.

“The Porn World is dominated primarily by men, so as a group of woman/mums we address our concerns, we provoke conversation into sex education and address topics such as consent, safe sex and equality,” she wrote on Facebook.

However, the research took an emotional toll on the women. They were required to watch porn videos depicting “violence, female submission and rape,” according to Channel 4.

Sarah cried, and Sarah Louise vomited during the process. Another mom was so upset that she quit the show.

At the end of the process, the women showed the video they created to their children.

Empowering porn has emerged as a kind of compromise between feminists who condemn porn as patriarchal and those who celebrate women’s right to monetize their sexuality as they see fit. Meanwhile, conservatives have continued making the case for modesty as a form of strength.
