AORTA films offers workshops, talks, screenings and more designed to pull queer porn out of the digital ether and ground it in our bodies, exploring embodiment as a part of personal porn, pleasure, and body-liberation practices.
Workshops like AORTA’s F*CKLAB invite providers, porn performers, and kink practitioners to get experimental with improvisational movement scores and structures. Talks and panels offer deeper insight into AORTA’s working process, and take AORTA’s work on the road to connect with new communities. And events and parties offer occasions to gather as queer community and all get hot and bothered.

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:
