Had an amazing time performing at TMI at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco! Such an incredible line up including Carol Queen, Gina Gold, and TMI Lounge. My good friend Sophia LaPaglia shot these photos and video of me performing a story about my journey to becoming MILF and the realities of performing in porn at 37 weeks pregnant. I loved meeting and talking to folks post show. Huge thanks to everyone who came out and got autographed copies of my newest books at the event. Don’t miss this Saturday’s event at Good Vibes in Oakland from 2-4 PM where I will be signing copies of my new book, “The Ultimate Guide to Sex Through Pregnancy and Motherhood”!

“ FEMINIST FILMMAKER & DIRECTOR MADISON YOUNG LEADS THE SECOND ANNUAL 3 DAY EROTIC FILM SCHOOL IN SAN FRANCISCO””
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – MARCH 18TH, 19TH, AND 20TH 2016
SAN FRANCISCO CA
This March San Francisco will be experiencing the second annual Erotic Film School! Award winning filmmaker and feminist pornographer, Madison Young, is bringing the first ever 3 Day Erotic Film School to San Francisco.
Erotic Film School is a 3 Day Erotic Filmmaking Training Program lead by Madison Young. In this intensive weekend experience a group of students will study erotic filmmaking while gaining hands on erotic filmmaking experience with industry professionals in the indie porn mecca of San Francisco California on March 18th, 19th, and 20th.
The 3 day weekend program is broken down into
1. Pre-production (including casting,creating a budget,writing a script and model negotiations)
2. Production (shooting a scene, working with models, how to operate equipment)
3. Post-production (video editing, marketing, distribution)
Each day will be broken down into a series of presentations, hands on experience in which students will work on creating their own collaborative erotic film with their fellow students, panels and Q&A with industry professional performers, editors, directors and distributors as well as field trips to the set of a professional porn shoot.
The 3 day training will conclude with a networking meet and greet celebration with local erotic filmmakers, performers, and producers in which students will be screening their collaboratively made short erotic film and EFS will be awarding certificates of completion to students who attend the full training.
Training facilitator, Madison Young, says of the Erotic Film School, “We are at a really exciting moment in film history. A moment in history where erotic film and pornography are being examined and valued for their cultural and social impact. We have greater access than ever to technology and equipment to create film and tell our stories. With Erotic Film School we are bringing together a new generation of erotic filmmakers, artists, activists, sexual revolutionaries, visionaries and students so that we might create together and learn together.”
Young’s Erotic Film School is putting into practice the lessons she has learned over the past decade of directing over 40 erotic films as well as the many topics that she addresses in her soon to be released book The DIY Porn Handbook: Documenting Our Sexual Revolution which will be published through Greenery Press in spring 2016.
