Dan Savage is well known for his column Savage Love, and for being the co-creator of the It Gets Better Project. What a smaller percentage of the population knows, is that he also created an amateur porn festival called HUMP!
Unlike what one would typically expect from a festival of this sort, the selections cover a wide range of sexual tastes and artistic perspectives – including a spectrum of orientations – making it an inclusive “dirty movie” festival, rather than a straight-up porn fest. And it has the added sexy benefit of being ALL amateur, made by sex positive people who wanted to share their sexy imaginations and bodies with you.
The 20 short films that made the cut are comprised of Dan Savage’s own personal picks, and also audience favourites. Savage shares, “We bill HUMP! as an amateur porn festival. But it’s more than that. It’s rare for people to watch porn that takes them outside their comfort zones—it’s rare for people to watch porn that, if they were home alone in front of the computer, they wouldn’t choose to click on and watch. At HUMP! straight people watch gay porn, vanilla people watch kinky porn, gay people watch lesbian porn. And people laugh, they gasp, sometimes they cover their eyes. But at the end of every ﬁlm people clap and cheer. It’s moving and wonderful and newcomers don’t expect it. The whole festival is a celebration of sexual diversity.”
