New York’s First Porn Film Festival

porn film festival new york nycNew York’s first-ever porn film festival is inducing a few cringes amongst that city’s intelligentsia – after all, ain’t that stuff meant to stay put in LA? ADAM FRONTIER writes …

It’s called the NYC Porn Film Festival, and its heart might just be set on turning geeks into porn moguls, and indie starlets into global porn stars.

New York’s first-ever porn film festival, curated by Englishman Simon Leahy, seems to be preoccupied with tearing down porn stereotypes.

Even Mashable has been writing it up, as they say:

“The effects of mainstream porn on society was Simon’s impetus for curating the festival. It dawned on him (after having “a lot of sex,” he bashfully chuckles), that some of his partners had been putting on an overly sexual facade, “a bit like porn stars.” He started wondering how pornography influences people on a daily basis, and how it potentially supports gender stereotypes.”

Hence if you click on the festivals website http://nycpornfilmfestival.com you might see fleshy permutations of maleness kissing each other, indeed it might take you a while to figure out what you’re seeing at all.

Maybe that once-upon-a-time-doyene of the New York film circuit, Woody Allen, will be tempted to make an appearance, but then again, probably his reputation management officer will be advising him to stay away.

The NYC Porn Film Festival happens 28th FEB – 1st MARCH 2015.
