Candida Royalle

The Godmother of Feminist Porn

Candida Royalle built a multi-faceted career exploring the endless nuances and complexities of erotica, sexual health, and self exploration for women. She created the Femme line to put a woman’s voice to adult movies and give men something they could share with the women in their life. She called the movies “sensually explicit”, and they are less graphic and lacking in the traditional “money shot”, a staple of most adult films and contain story lines, good original music and character development.

Candida is the Godmother of Feminist Porn and her legacy lives on through the films of female filmmakers who follow her.
