Easy on the Eye - Women Love Porn

Anna Span started shooting porn films after graduating from Central St Martin’s School of Art with a BA Hons in Fine Art (Film & Video) in 1998. It was there that she wrote her dissertation ‘Towards A New Pornography’ in which she analyzed what a female perspective on porn would look like, being a genre that was largely underdeveloped and unexplored by female filmmakers. In 2009 she launched a separate label to encourage other budding female porn directors entitled ‘Women Love Porn’ and was successful in overturning an arguably sexist ruling banning images of female ejaculation by the British Board of Film Classification. A previous push to allow parity of representation between the sexes in soft-core productions was also achieved by Easy on the Eye Productions. Anna was Chair of the UK trade association for erotic industries until she stood down to pursue a PhD in 2011.
