We Become What We Were Told Not To

A Sexual Fantasy

— By rsjm

My wife and I grew up in a pretty strict religious environment. Porn was wrong. Sex was shamed. We've since left the church but it feels like there is still more to overcome. We meet a stranger in a bar: this stranger produces porn. The conversation sparks and we decide to create a porno - create the very thing we were always told we could never watch. With the cameras rolling, the lights, the director telling us every position, we create art for someone else while leaving our shame behind.
