Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I thought I would share what I’ve learned over the course of this year with the help of a selection of my favorite pieces of erotic illustrations from around the dark corners of the Internetz.

More than half a year ago, inspired by what I had experienced at the Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto, I launched my own erotic cinema, luciemakesporn.com.

As fear stirred into me, I also felt empowered by the challenge of being my own boss.

But at the same time, there were also a lot of new aggressions against female sexuality and indie porn. Censorship, bans, taxes and narrow-minded laws.

As idiotic and outdated these new laws are, they do impact our own private life and even keep society from evolving beyond gender stereotypes.

They’re trying to fuck us in the ass, but what they don’t know is that we actually enjoy anal and we’re determined to make ethical, feminist porn happen.

A big change for me this past year has been moving from Barcelona to Berlin. I got a new home, new people, new life.

I’ve already met lots of cool people and even sneaked into a few new projects that promise to be hot as hell.

I bought a bicycle, which didn’t turn out to be the lifesaver I thought – cycling on the road scares the crap out of me – but I’m looking forward to riding it in summer along the river.

I met a bunch of tattoo artists and I can’t wait to get the next one done.

I’ve been able to explore my body a lot thanks to my new career and I finally feel like I’m beginning to enjoy sex as I should.

Instead of being self-conscious about my body, I began to feel it vibrate in a new pride, like a nice fuck you to all the bullshit I had been taught my whole life.

I also had the opportunity to dive into bondage, helping a friend learn how to tie knots and even enjoying it myself with a partner. Quite the discovery.

Sex toys were also a good way to have more fun with myself and actually figure out what I liked and didn’t like.
