Candida Royalle featured on “Pioneers of Feminist Porn”, panel discussion on MindBrowse.com

On Tuesday, June 16th, 2015, at 3pm EST/12pm PDT, Candida Royalle will be the featured guest on the MindBrowse.com online panel discussion, “Pioneers of Feminist Porn” as part of their ongoing series, “Women in Porn, Then and Now.” Moderated by Sociologist Chauntelle Tibbals, PhD., author of EXPOSURE: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society and Adult Entertainment, the discussion, beginning with Royalle, will address the evolution of erotica made for women from when she first entered the industry as a performer in 1974 to the works being authored by the current generation of producers and directors.

During the second segment, Candida Royalle will be joined by award-winning New Sensations director Jacky St. James, best known for her films, Emma Marx (1 and 2), Anna Lee, and Torn. St. James & Royalle will discuss their perspectives on the future of women’s erotica, after which Royalle will talk about her forthcoming documentary, “While You Were Gone” and the Natural Contours® line of personal massagers she developed in partnership with Dutch industrial designer Jandirk Groet among other developing projects.

“We are truly honored to have Candida Royalle, the original trailblazer in making porn from a woman’s point of view, lead a discussion about the growth and progress in women’s erotica over the last 30 years,” said Angie Rowntree, owner of the award-winning porn for women site Sssh.com and producer of Mindbrowse.com events. “There’s simply nobody better qualified to talk about how porn for women got its start, how far it has come and where it is headed.”

“I love any opportunity to get together with smart, talented women with whom I can speak candidly about sex and erotic expression,” Royalle said.

“You cannot talk about female pornographers and not mention Candida Royalle, whose work in pornography is every bit as groundbreaking today as it was thirty years ago,” St. James said of her esteemed co-panelist.

Throughout the discussion, viewers can tweet questions and comments of their own using the #SexTalkTuesday hashtag for Tibbals to relay to St. James and Royalle during the Q&A portion which will close the show.

“I hope women – and men! – will tune in and listen,” Royalle said. “My favorite part of any talk has always been the Q&A, and I love to be surprised. So please: tune in, call in and surprise me!”
