Female porn director Ms. Naughty (also known as Louise Lush) creates erotic films that focus on connection and intimacy. She often works with real-life couples in order to capture the chemistry and emotion that is typically present when people who know each other have sex. She also makes erotic short films that can be humorous, experimental or simply arousing. Her work also includes small documentaries and documentary-style explicit scenes that explore the dynamics of relationships.
Ms. Naughty began working in the adult industry online in 2000, originally making small erotic sites aimed at straight women. In 2003 she has jointly created ForTheGirls.com, one of the first adult sites for women. She taught herself filmmaking in 2008. Her site BrightDesire.com is her main focus and it features all of her films.
The erotic films of Ms. Naughty’s have been screened at a wide selection of film festivals including The Berlin Porn Film Festival, Cinekink, East Bay Briefs SF, The British Fetish Film Festival, Popporn Brazil, Muestra Marrana Mexico, Goodvibes Quickies, The Perverotic Queer Film Festival and the Sexy International Film Festival.
Her film “Hand Jobs” won Best Cinematography at East Bay Express Briefs in 2016. Her film “Dear Jiz” won Best Experimental Short at the 2014 Cinekink NY festival and “Tease” received an Honorable Mention the next year. She has also won 4 Feminist Porn Awards. In 2015 Bright Desire was an Honored Website and “Instructed” won Best BDSM Scene.”Connections” and “Something Better: Performers Talk About Feminism And Porn” won Honorable Mentions in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
The Feminist Porn Book, released in 2013, has a chapter by Ms. Naughty about her career making online porn and “porn for women”. She spoke on that topic at the Feminist Porn Conference in Toronto in April 2013 (you can find a video of the presentation is here). At the 2014 Feminist Porn Conference she spoke on two panels: Feminist Porn: What It Is, What It Isn’t and Why It Matters and Pornographers Without Borders and screened several of her films. Her summary of that conference appeared in the September 2015 issue of the academic journal Porn Studies.
She has a chapter in Jiz Lee’s book Coming Out Like A Porn Star, discussing the stigma surrounding working in porn.
Her work is discussed in Anne Sabo’s After Pornified: How Women Are Transforming Pornography and Why It Really Matters and Audacia Ray’s Naked on the Internet: Hookups, Downloads and Cashing In On Internet Sexploration.
Prior to her erotic career Ms. Naughty was a freelance journalist, writing regularly for Australian Women’s Forum. She was also a librarian for a major Australian media company.
