Erika Lust, (b. Stockholm, 1977) is an independent erotic filmmaker, author, and founder of Erika Lust Films. After graduating from Lund University with a degree in Political Science, Lust moved to Barcelona, where she established her production company in 2005.
She has directed 4 award-winning erotic feature films - Five Hot Stories for Her, Barcelona Sex Project, Life Love Lust, and Cabaret Desire - as well as the groundbreaking new series of crowd sourced short films, XConfessions. Among her 6 notable written works are Let´s Make a Porno: a Practical Guide to Filming Sex, La Canción de Nora, and Good Porn: a Woman’s Guide.
Lust is committed to forging a new concept of sexual expression - pledging, in her own words, "to create new waves in adult cinema, to show all of the passion, intimacy, love and lust in sex: where the feminine viewpoint is vital, the aesthetic is a pleasure to all of the senses and those seeking an alternative to porn can find a home."
