'Porn workers and platform economy'

With Carmina, Prune, Cobalt FTM, Sara Lisa Resende De Sousa Oliveira, Pierre Brasseur
Moderated by Thomas Lavergne

in French

The creation of pornographic content and the platform economy are closely linked and expanding, profoundly transforming the practices of porn workers. Between ultra-public visibility on the networks and the solitude of sex workers behind the screen, how are these online and offline professional activities rationalized? Between the active censorship prevailing on the net and the banking discrimination faced by sex workers, what strategies do the people involved develop to maintain themselves?

19:30 United Sluts Party 

pay what you can €8 / €12 / €15
tickets at the door

Have you been feasting on pornography all afternoon? Did you get excited, discreetly or frankly, in the corridors as you bumped into your crush(es) who chose to come and see the same porn movie as you? Then come and join in the musical exultation of this second evening: the United slut party.

If one of the political strengths of porn is its ability to collectively seize bodies through sexual and fantastical imagery, music is just as powerful in many ways. As a tool for struggle, emancipation and/or jubilation, we invite you to come and sweat it out over some big sounds.  On the program: lives, djsets, performances and lots of love. #Hiphop/ Afro/ Dancehall/ RnB/ Dumb/ Neoperreo / Reggaeton/ Trap/ techno etc,

SATURDAY 4 May

15:00 - 17:00 Round table

PORNOGRAPHIC ARCHIVES: HISTORICAL AND MINORITY ISSUES OF A RELEGATED CULTURE 

Beurscafé 
in French

Between political and historical issues, the question of archives is crucial for minority groups and marginalized subcultures. When it comes to sexual cultures and non-standard identities, what narratives do pornography, past and present, convey? As a community tool for queer sexual emancipation, porn is a process whose archiving is not just a memory, but an open door to collective and powerful horizons.

With Aurore Morillon (Porn Process), Laurent Tenzer (Cinema Nova & ABC archives), Lazare Lazarus et Lupa (Mémoire des sexualités), Marilyn Jess, Guillaume Le Disez (Pulse Editions).

Moderated by Magali Michaux

17:00 - 22:00 Horny Words

Beurscafé
in French

17:00 Porn Readings

What's magical about sex, as with text, is that there's always something to be rediscovered and reinvented. It's with joy and excitement that we invite you to come and listen to previously unpublished readings of sexual and explicit texts by four authors with tongues well... Hanged. 

Featuring: Mona Servo & Yvelizra / Law & Marianne Chargois

PASTORAL PORN by ana-mona servo (creation,text) & Yvelizra (images)

Earthy asses rubbing up against each other in the nooks and crannies of barns, caressing each other in the folds of three eights: between an orgy of dreamed-of countryside and dreams of abandoned countryside, latex, tractors, gouinx humidx, work and sex, from the fields to the factory, in the dampness of the earth and the smell of manure.

FIST ARE FOR FUCKING NOT FOR FIGHTING by Marianne Chargois & Law

A post-porn, poetic, sexual and philosophical reading about a practice that is so gently shared. From the marital bed to hellish backrooms, Marianne and Law will link their singular and collective experiences to trace other lines and other territories in a need to re-question different practices highlighting the notions of penetrator, penetrated, giver, receiver.

18:30 Open Mic 

Hosted by MelÓn de la Vega

MelÓn de la Vega, the most BG of all the Kings, will take you into the world of the open stage / open Mic to let you come along, whisper, clamor, rap, slammer, shout, all the words of the Q that you haven't yet or too little addressed to the world. We can't wait. (All levels of experience and languages welcome. )

20:00 KaraoSluts

Featuring Blanket La Goulue 

Whether you're a solo slut or a group like a chorus of bitches, we're all invited to let out the voice of our inner bitch who wants to sing obscenely!
