A New Porn Studio From Berlin Is Reinventing Feminist Gang Bangs

HardWerk is a new berlin-based motion picture and film company that creates cinematic hardcore porn ethically. We fell in love with one of the first films “Bride Bang” and you might, too

It’s about more than simply producing films of high production value and aesthetic integrity – our aim is to do so without compromising their rawness and explicitness and to bring adults together to celebrate their sexuality and explore their kinks without shame. We reclaim the gangbang as a consensual, sexually empowering practice, placing the spotlight on a dynamic that reveres orgiastic fantasies.

HardWerk was born out of a modern love story when Paulita Pappel and Rod Wyler met through a dating app and started talking about porn. The directors shared their passion for kink and a vast experience in filmmaking both within and outside the adult industry.

HardWerk produced 5 films so far, but there are more to come. One film, we immediately fell in love with is “Bride Gang” staring Kali Sudhra, Bishop Black, Master Aaron, Sam Bourne, Hunter S. Johnson and Kinky Panda. 

BRIDE GANG

Here cums the bride…

You could say that tradition and established institutions lie at the core of Hardwerk’s Bride Gang: Kali Sudhra as the soon-to-be newlywed in her virginal white wedding dress, the flowing beer, rattling pinball machines, nicotine-stained-and-deep-rooted machismo and lackadaisical regulars of the typical German Eckkneipe (corner bar)…

You could say so that but, of course, it comes as no surprise that the associated tropes and clichés become a playground for subversion in this inspired piece of smut. The filmmakers also give porn itself – in some ways as entrenched in convention – the same treatment, queering the heteronormativity of the gang bang, empowering female performers to ask for exactly what they want and pushing the genre into an amalgamation of inspirations and aesthetics that elevate it on every level. This might not be your dream wedding day but it’s definitely the one you fantasise about.

Feminist Gangbangs - How is that Possible?

On their website HardWerk writes:

“There’s a tendency to call porn that is sexually “soft” (think sex that is always embedded in a story with soft lighting, pastel colours, gentle caresses and other “feminine” tropes) feminist, without actually delving deeper into what feminism means. Feminism is a political movement that fights for the equality of the genders. Intersectional feminism acknowledges the different axes of discrimination and analyses systems of oppression. Sexuality is a realm of human experience and identity that has long been repressed as a mechanism of control and discrimination. In a sex-negative society where sex is still taboo, pornography has the potential for sexual liberation by allowing for the representation and celebration of bodies, sexualities and desires – not just the pretty and the pastel but across a wide spectrum. In this way, it can be a great tool for feminist activism, validating and empowering sexual expression that doesn’t have to fit a mould. Sexuality is complex and there are no right or wrong sexual practices as long as they are negotiated between consenting adults. It should be one of the goals of feminist liberation that every woman is allowed and encouraged to explore and enjoy her sexuality as she desires.”
