This summer, AORTA films is testing out offering workshops as one of our core offerings! These workshops will bring you everything you need to know on sex, kink, and BDSM taught by educators, experts, and professional perverts from all around the world. They’ll be programmed and facilitated by multifaceted AORTA alum and sparkling sex educator Jamie Joy. We’d love to hear from your thoughts–click here to answer a quick 3-minute questionnaire about what you’d like to see us offer!
Workshop programmer & facilitator
Jamie Joy (they/them) is a queer trans Jewish sex educator and hungry slut for freaky fantasies and kinky perversions. Their life and work is committed to spreading joy, pleasure, and consent through community organizing. As a triple fire sign Sagittarius, Jamie Joy is passionate about dancing while eating, playing sadistically with flaming floggers, and teaching people about the wonders of anal fisting. They are always excited to connect with new friends; you can find them on Instagram @badjewboy or email them at [email protected].
AORTA films works in partnership with workshop facilitator Jamie Joy to curate educators who we believe may bring high-quality, engaging workshops to our community. The views and practices presented in these workshops are those of the educators, and not AORTA films. AORTA films is not liable for the views or practices expressed by the educators.
AORTA films Signature Workshops
AORTA films presents: F*CKLAB
AORTA films’ F*CKLAB is for kinksters, movers, sex workers, and porn performers. It offers participants a chance to get experimental with their accumulated body knowledge, build new skill sets, and develop a shared practice around explicit embodiment.
What does it mean to build a rehearsal practice for pornography? What does an enthusiastically consensual practice look like when sexually explicit bodies, states, and actions are centered? How can kink dynamics, orgasm, gender, identity, eroticism, and sex acts be used as choreographic and improvisational tools. Somewhere between a rehearsal, a research group, and a play party, F*CKLAB investigates the negotiation of pornographic embodiment as an anti-oppressive, feminist, and trans-inclusive practice rooted in femme care-taking and risk.
To express interest in joining our current F*CKLAB practice, please email [email protected] and introduce yourself and let us know why you think you’d be a good fit. If you are a presenter, programer, or curator who would like to bring F*CKLAB to your space or host a workshop, please feel free to reach out to us at the email address above!
AORTA films has also occasionally used explorations from F*CKLAB as the basis for explorations within specific films. Check them out here:
