Feminist pornographer Erika Lust picks 13 films and TV shows that have influenced her unique approach to the erotic. Slightly NSFW


Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (Russ Meyer, 1965)

This 1965 cult film is perfect for a Friday night if you want to stay at home but feel like having some fun as well. Call some friends, grab some beers and delve into the crazy comedic world of Russ Meyer. You will die laughing with its political incorrectness and violent hyper-sexualised female characters. I believe Quentin Tarantino must have grabbed a lot of inspiration from Russ Meyer for his own films (Kill Bill of course, and Death Proof) and I tried to make a humble homage to this world of dominant superwomen in my explicit film Power Pussy.
