Ever wonder what it would be like to see your sexual fantasies played out in a film? Well in XCONFESSIONS, Erika Lust does just that! Hundreds of anonymous authors pen their sinful stories on www.xconfessions.com, and two are handpicked each month by the acclaimed director to be turned into erotic short films.
Cabaret Desire is acclaimed erotic filmmaker Erika Lust’s latest, most personal, and most ambitious film to date. Set Barcelona’s ‘Poetry Brothel’ – a magical, bohemian place where people go after dark to mingle with erotic tales – Cabaret Desire unveils four tales of sex, lust, passion, storytelling, fantasy, and adventure. Winner of multiple awards including ‘Film of the Year’ at the Toronto Feminist Porn Awards (2012), and ‘Audience Choice Award’ at CineKink New York (2012).
Do not disturb! To celebrate it’s opening, Barcelona’s Camper Hotel invited six Spanish filmmakers to shoot a 7 minute film in the hotel over 24 hours. There was one condition – total freedom on the part of the director. Transforming this plush Spanish location into a dreamy Love Hotel, Room 33 is about the sexiness of travel, intimacy and complete strangers, and the allure of what happens behind closed doors.
Three beautiful, unique stories make up Erika Lust’s third feature film. ‘Life’ – After a busy day at work, a chef and waitress unwind with a hot birthday affair. ‘Love’ – A successful forty-something executive seduces a young man who suddenly falls for her. ‘Lust’ – A shy and lonely woman enjoys a skin to skin massage from the sexy Lola: rubbed, licked, pleasured, and teased to breaking point. Awarded with ‘Film of the Year’ at the 2011 Toronto Feminist Porn Awards.
Handcuffs is a short film based on a real experience. Shot in the darkly chic Coppelia bar of Barcelona, the camera follows the kinky couple portrayed by Natalia Paris and Paco Roca, who reprise their roles in the sequel, Room 33.

Written and directed especially for women and couples, Five Hot Stories for Her is a compilation of five modern, intelligent, erotic short films. In fuckyoucarlos.com, a soccer player cheats on his wife, who in turn plans exquisite revenge; Something About Nadia interweaves three women’s infatuations with the beguiling Nadia; Married With Children is a playful S&M scene between a married couple; and two gay men have their final sexual encounter in Breakup Sex. The Good Girl, Erika Lust’s sensational debut short, completes the quintet.
Erika Lust’s indie debut burst into the world of adult cinema and spun it on its head. A short film, a twist on the classic “pizza guy” porn, The Good Girl is about Alex (Claudia Claire) – a beautiful, smart, successful, businesswoman. She thinks a lot about sex, but rarely acts on her fantasies… until a friend inspires her to try something that a ‘good girl’ wouldn’t do. This short film is now included in the feature film, Five Hot Stories for Her.
