EROTICA

For Georges Bataille’s birthday I used the footage from the Bataille Surrealist Erotica episode and cut down to a 2 minute tribute video. I’ve been going through all the episodes of the series and doing this… I’m not sure what I will do with these short versions, but they are less explicit that the originals.

I added a photoset and a video for OnlyFans subscribers this week.

Last year I started working on a video/photo series called “Witchcraft Erotica” that I never finished. I’ve been editing the older footage and filming some new stuff for it. I’m going to cut it all into a short film.

R.I.P. VOD

erotic collection vimeo joanpope.gif

After about a year and a half, my Vimeo account has gotten flagged. "Sexually-focused ventures" are not allowed so my Vimeo on Demand erotic collections have been removed. I am looking for other solutions where I can sell the collections: Goddess Erotica, Surrealist Erotica, and the un-themed "best of" Erotic Collection. 

I still have a subscription site at OnlyFans but the themed videos are now pretty far back on the time line. I preferred the VOD collections because they were finished products, grouped according to their theme. I don't like the subscription model as much because I feel like I have to keep adding to it even though there are almost 300 videos already there- sometimes I just want to work on other stuff. Most people say they can't even keep up with the amount I upload there, but there's this feeling that I have to keep uploading to keep people interested. 

VOD was a large chunk of my income. Selling erotica has allowed me the time and freedom to pursue music and my other art. Please consider subscribing to my OnlyFans site, or buying prints, or my music. Links are at the end of the post.

In the meantime, I am seeking other options. I'd rather not put the videos on a site where they could be downloaded- I'd rather they were streamed. Clip sites take a large cut, but that might be my only option. I consider what I do to be artistic, but it walks the line of pornographic. That's what makes this difficult. I would consider selling them as DVDs but I would need to find a distributor- there are too many legal issues, like age verification, to DIY a DVD production. I am also considering compiling stills and producing a magazine. Again, it would be ideal if a publisher was interested in producing it. 

I am also considering making a less explicit, single video with all the footage from Surrealist Erotica to sell. I'm not sure if that's something people would actually want. I felt that collection was one of my creative masterpieces and frankly, I don't think it got the attention it deserved. Most people bought the general un-themed "Erotic Collection." The Erotic Collection had significantly more videos than the Surrealist Erotica collection, and was only a few dollars more. The Surrealist Erotica collection required research, acquiring props, etc. I thought it was unique. 

Anyways, if anyone has any ideas, please contact me. 

Ways you can support my work:

I will have these prints (and some others) at the next Temple ov Saturn show. From now on I will be taking custom orders instead of stocking prints. If you would like a print of any of my artwork, please contact me through my contact form. Its better this way so you can request whatever size you'd like for whatever artwork or photo you want. Custom orders are also available internationally.
