Zahra Stardust (Intimate X)

Zahra StardustZahra Stardust is an award-winning porn star and director, whose films feature a distinct mix of sex, art and politics. Her work vacillates between playful engagement with stereotype to raw accounts of stigma and burnout, blending boundaries between work and pleasure.

In Fuck Dolls, performers enjoy homoerotic Ken dolls and explore Barbie’s queer potential, using her as a dildo in a strap-on harness. In Femme Facial they re-orient the traditional male cum shot in a femme-on-femme squirting scene. The One on the Bottom features an intimate fisting scene in response to comments on current affairs program QnA that ‘the one on the bottom’ is oppressed in gay porn. Beautiful Monotony, an endurance art piece featuring back to back lap dances in fast forward interspersed with studying, eating and changing tampons, emphasises both the pleasure and work of sexual labour. Zahra’s protest film with Angela White made history as the first two political candidates to film a porn scene together, and her scene with Madison Missina in Blonde features all safer sex to promote the #safesexissexy campaign.

Zahra collaborates with fellow performers to put their shared desires and creative visions on screen. She is interested in intimacy, provocation, body fluids, spillage and the abject out of place.

Check out her new site Intimate X which features a lot of her porn.
