ERIKA LUST is a Swedish award-winning indie adult filmmaker currently working and living in Barcelona.


She creates sex-positive, indie adult cinema that portrays sexually intelligent narratives, relatable characters, and realistic hot sex.

Erika studied political sciences, feminism and gender studies. Her debut film The Good Girl from 2004 was a manifesto against chauvinistic mainstream porn. Since then, she directed multi-award winning erotic films, wrote several books, and created XConfessions, the first crowdsourced erotic film series in the history of adult cinema. In 2015, Erika gave her essential TEDx talk It’s Time for Porn to Change.

Erika's revolutionary cinema reflects her views on sex as a healthy, natural part of life worth celebrating. With more than 150 short films, Erika also produces and finances female guest directors, supporting burgeoning talent across the globe. She defends the importance of having women behind the camera in all key positions.

Erika Lust Films is a monthly donor to the Red Umbrella Fund and Amnesty International.
