Dyke porn's new

Dyke porn's new


In 1998, Shine Louise Houston received her film degree from the San Francisco Art Institute. Who knew the 33-year-old founder of Pink and White Productions would turn queer porn into a must-see?

W e always knew that hot dyke porn could exist. And now San Francisco auteur Shine Louise Houston has made it happen. Her beautifully shot body-positive videos feature a diverse cast and run the gamut from butch-femme strap-on play to boi-on-boi action. What's more, the participants look refreshingly like real people having sex--if those real people actually knew how to get each other off. But the cherry on top may be the tongue-in-cheek premises: In Superfreak a succession of dykes at a party are haunted by the randy ghost of Rick James. In Search of the Wild Kingdom follows members of a documentary film crew as they roam the streets of San Francisco looking for "real lesbian sex."

What made you say, "Oh, God, I can do better than this?" I worked at Good [Vibrations, a San Francisco sex products store] for 51/2 years, and our selection was so small. Customers would come in and ask, "What's good lesbian porn?" and I'd be like, "Eeh, we have these three videos." Having a film degree and doing nothing with it at the time, I just decided to take a stab at it.

What sets your videos apart? There's this attitude in the porn genre--go, go, fuck really hard! And the gynecological close-ups, that's interesting, but is it hot? A lot of what I'm doing is focusing on things you wouldn't necessarily peg as hot--a giggle, a hand movement. You sprinkle those things in, and all of a sudden, whoa, it's way hot.

Give me your one-minute critique of mainstream porn. For a lot of people, it works. For me, I find it mostly lacking in the production value, the level of intimacy, and hotness. Somebody was saying to me that L.A. porn is as stylized as kabuki. There's a FORM-U-LA. Oral and more oral and then penetration and then come shot.

You use both amateurs and pros in your videos. Do you have a preference? It's just...different. With professionals-- especially if they've worked in L.A.--you tell them to make out, and they do it and then stop. [Laughs] But when you're working with amateurs you're like, "Why don't you make out?" and they do it for about two seconds, and then they're off to something else. And it's our job just to try and keep up.

Your videos show diverse body types. Is there a point beyond which audiences will not go? If you go beyond certain points, you get dumped into a fetish niche. I want to reach a large market--straight people, queer people--anyone who wants to see really hot sex.

You also try to get real orgasms. Can you give me a success rate? One hundred percent.

Really? Nobody has faked it. Trust me.
