Women making porn?! Yes please!
These are the badass women taking matters into their own hands…
They are behind the camera (and sometimes in front of it too!) and are saying “buh-bye” to the notion that porn is a men’s only arena. Hello to a diversity of beautiful bodies, a championing of women’s sexual pleasure, and stunning filmmaking that is heralding in a new age of erotica.

LILY & PORNOGRAPHIC LOVE
Artistic Sex Videos of a Loving Couple
“Max and I actually met on a dating website! It was only for sex at first. I wanted to find the perfect lover, not just a one night stand from a bar, but no strings attached… As soon as he opened his door, we both knew there was a special connection between us. I had the best sex I ever had that night! Since then, we fell in love and now we live together.
We started getting into porn because it is such a turn on to show the world how beautiful and passionate our sex life is. At first it was just for our personal pleasure, but then we found websites where we could create a little store and sell some amateur clips individually. We started to take it a little more seriously, so we decided to take things to the next level. We bought more equipment and developed an interest in a more cinematographic way of making our videos.”

SHINE LOUISE HOUSTON & PINK AND WHITE PRODUCTIONS
Honest & Cinematic Depictions of Queer and Trans Sexuality
“There’s room and need to create adult content that’s real, respectful, and powerful. It’s the perfect place to become political. It’s where money, sex, media, and ethics converge.”
As the founding producer and director of Pink and White Productions, (CrashPadSeries.com, PinkLabel.tv), SHINE LOUISE HOUSTON has always had unique vision. Graduating from San Francisco Arts Institute with a Bachelors in Fine Art Film, her works have become the new gold standard of adult cinema. During a five year position at the women-owned, sex toy purveyor Good Vibrations, Shine recognized an underserved demand for an alternative to mainstream pornography, and began to create well-crafted queer made porn. Shine’s films have been recognized among the next big wave of women produced porn and have been internationally screened from Amsterdam to New Zealand.
