Morgana Muses is an age-positive, sex-positive creative director of Permission 4 Pleasure. She shares her journey of sexual exploration to audiences through her award winning short films.
Morgana is a first generation Australian born to European parents. Her upbringing focused strongly on how a ‘good woman’ should behave and appear in private and in public, becoming a wife and mother was considered to be the ultimate achievement for a woman. Sex and all related pleasures were never discussed, considered as something to learn and conduct in the confines of a marriage. At the tender age of 47, 2 years after leaving her marriage she decided to embark on her journey of sexual exploration and learning. Much of Morgana’s work deals with themes of duty, exploring desire and being bound by expectations.
Morgana’s film career as a director, writer, producer and performer has gone from strength to strength. In 2012 she was the recipient of the Petra Joy Award for first time film makers for her entry ‘Duty Bound’ a thoughtful meditation on womanhood and desire. She then collaborated with Anna Brownfield and Sensate Films, having her films screen at Cinekink and at the Berlin Porn Film Festival in 2013 and 2014.
In 2015 Morgana relocated to Berlin, won best short documentary at Cinekink for her short ‘It’s My Birthday and I’ll Fly if I Want To’ which detailed her 50th birthday gift to herself and won the 2015 Heart Throb of the Year at the Feminist Porn Awards. Morgana is currently in post- production with a series of films shot in Berlin as well as in pre production for a new film to be shot in 2016.
