    Provocative, enlightening and revealing, The Naked Feminist challenges the myths surrounding women in the porn industry while exploring preconceived notions of control, pleasure and exploitation.

    Through candid behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with porn stars, academics and feminists, including women who are considered by many to be ‘The American Masters' of porn - Jane Hamilton (aka Veronica Hart), Candida Royalle, Annie Sprinkle, Sharon Mitchell, Nina Hartley, Marilyn Chambers and Ginger Lynn Allen - this informative and straight-talking documentary strips away the ideological straitjacket surrounding the decades-old ‘porn versus feminist' debate by demonstrating that strong, inspirational women are found in all walks of life - including pornography.
