If you missed the amateur porn celebration that aims to redefine an industry, make a point of heading to Dan Savage’s HUMP! Film Festival. Forget 16 and 17 year old girls who have been seduced by money to perform in dodgy Florida houses. The HUMP! festival features porn made for and intended for its makers even more than its consumers.
The films feature people of all body sizes, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks and fetishes. Together, the festival is a sex-positive celebration of sexual expression.
This is the fourth international tour and it includes 22 new films. Some are erotic, some are hilarious, some are artsy. It allows viewers to see something they wouldn’t normally choose for themselves. For example, Playing Scrabble turns the board game into a wild orgy with clowns and whipping (it won for the most kinky at the festival). On the other hand, sex and yoga combine in Fuck on the Mount, which takes place in a scenic destination. Poly sex is featured in I’m Not Poly But My Boyfriends Are. Other films feature sock puppets, transwomen, octopi, sailing, masturbation, tea, and belly dancing. Each film is something different.
