Jennifer Lyon Bell― Speaker
With Blue Artichoke Films (Amsterdam), Jennifer Lyon Bell creates award-winning erotic fiction films, documentaries, and virtual reality experiences that illuminate the riveting, intimate, and sometimes delightfully awkward side of sex. Their unique realism leads them to be featured at conferences/panels worldwide in diverse fields ranging from sexology to philosophy. Jennifer also curates erotic film exhibitions for museums and festivals, and consults on sexuality for international TV and film. She teaches her popular workshop “From Fantasy To Film: Design Your Own Erotic Movie” worldwide. “As an alternative, independent, ethical porn filmmaker, I can speak to why I chose this career, why I think alternative sexual representations have tremendous value, and the different types of alternative porn that I currently see. I can also speak to how Blue Artichoke Films has dealt with the rise of free online porn, specifically by trying to add value by creating a sex-positive community that bridges the digital and “real” spheres.”
