February Pleasure Salon Melbourne celebrates sex-positive erotic films, feminism and pornography
February PSM will be trialling a new PANEL format where our guests will be able to engage in dialogue with Cyndi and the audience to explore and detail their experiences as performers and producers of pornographic adult movies.
Our Feb line up includes the gorgeous and articulate Gala known for her pioneering work with FECK, stunning feminist pornster Liandra Dahl an independent feminist pornographer and blogger who has recently worked with one of the world’s most well known sex educators ( Betty) Dodson and Ross, alongside award winning Australian production company, Adult Voyeur’s very own Bourke Wills.
Gala is a mutli-purpose sex-positive sex worker who entered the industry through the pornhole. Her career in alternative smutmaking started at a Melbourne-based company Feck ( one of Pleasure Salon Melbourne’s sponsors), and her work appears on its sites ishotmyself.com, beautifulagony.com, ifeelmyself.com, and sonicerotica.com. more recently she has appeared on liandradahl.com, and she is currently preparing to launch a blog journalling her experiences in various facets of the industry.’
Liandra has worked in the alternative pornography industry for 9 years. She first began work with the Australian adult websites run by Feck, ishotmyself.com and beautifulagony.com as a contributor and then as the hostess of their masturbation site ifeelmyself.com between 2003 to 2007. She has also worked with acclaimed European female adult film producers Erika Lust and Jennifer Lyon Bell as a performer. She currently runs her own pansexual independent reality sex site LiandraDahl.com where she performs, produces, films, edits and codes for the whole project and website.
Bourke Wills started making high quality, uniquely Australian porn a long time ago as Adult Voyuer. Our first trial shoot was August 2008 and was either a dismal failure or incredibly steep learning curve, depending on which way you look at these things.
We continued shooting, and learning until we felt we had a sufficient backlog of material. We launched the first version of our site in 2010 to a very good reception and relaunched in in 2011 the same year we won the Eros Shine Award for the “Best Australian Adult Website”.
Adult Voyeur continues to grow largely due to the fascination the rest of the world has with Australia and Australian’s eager to see Australian content. We are Australia’s only high production value, top shelf, adult film company and are dedicated to showcasing beautiful Australians having great sex in gorgeous Australian locations. We feel Australian porn as a whole is unique, it is women and couple friendly, empowering, sex positive porn.
In other news……………………………
Starting in March, we will be meeting the FIRST TUESDAY of each month which means our March Salon will be on TUESDAY March 6th, and we will be continuing with TUESDAY gatherings for the rest of 2012 unless we have a special event.
We understand that may mean some of you won’t be able to attend, whilst for others it means a break from the weekend crazies and a day to recover before heading out again. Running such an event we try our best to keep everyone happy, but in the end decisions have to be made, and we hope this change causes as little disappointment and inconvenience as possible
LOOP bar have offered us the residency for the duration of 2012 and we look forward to sampling their fabulous food and drink selection and taking advantage of the fabulous tech set up in addition to the warm embrace of Pleasure Salon Melbourne’s values of open and honest discussion around the importance of pleasure and good sex.
We look forward to seeing you all again.
