Erika Lust Presents 'TWERK,' an Ode to Anal Sex and Black Culture

Tune in for behind-the-scenes footage.

Indie adult filmmaker Erika Lust is adding another sex-positive conversation to her iconic brand with the film TWERK, set to release on August 8 on XConfessions.

The fiction film aims to highlight forms of pleasure women deserve to enjoy without heteronormative scripts — like anal sex. Twerking, a natural movement of the pelvis has become so hypersexualized, that it has been pulled away from its roots of enjoyment. Through TWERK, Lust is directing a conversation that celebrates the abilities of the feminine form.

Lust’s film is a stark contrast to conversations that avoid mentions of twerking’s true roots, which are linked to Black culture. “Originated among cis and trans Black females in New Orleans in the mid-90s, twerking is a sophisticated aesthetic and embodied intellectual practice originally recognized as ‘bounce.’” Bounce is a sub-genre of hip-hop culture that heavily influences the music industry to this day.

“Twerking is all about shaking the fleshy excess of one’s ass around in a circle, up and down to the beat, in alternating patterns from left to right using only one’s butt cheek.”
