We started this issue by asking ourselves the question: ‘Can pornography be a weapon of social justice?’ This magazine is a response to times of political and social uproar. Many societies across the globe have made progressive steps forward regarding racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, xenophobia, environmental policy and other essential elements of life. Yet, as of recent, it feels as though much of this work is being swiftly unraveled at the hands of a privileged few. Now, it is our time to maintain this fight.
This edition covers the work of a fantastic group of visual artists from across the globe, from iconic image makers such as Erika Lust to emerging queer artists.
Pornography is disruptive in its nature. It often threatens dominant power structures and is a tool of resistance for non-conforming minorities who are often censored. The magazine aims to use erotic art as a medium of protest: communicating ideas, challenging systems, and hegemonic structures, and ultimately changing the world around us through porn. Focusing on a broad variety of issues ranging from feminist porn to queer issues and usual representations in the pornographic industry––this magazine has been created to bring change.
