Our online movie theatre shows all of Petra Joy’s films, and Petra’s favourite films by other erotic directors from all over the world, as well as exclusive behind the scenes content, trailers, photos and much more.
Following over two decades working as a director shooting many documentaries about sexuality, Petra founds Strawberry Seductress, an erotic photography service aimed at women and couples.
Petra produces and directs her first erotic film as an experiment to see if she can bring her vision of female-centred sexuality to the screen. This unique erotic film, featuring a real-life couple and an artistic approach to erotic filmmaking, becomes a surprise success – even though or because it breaks all the mainstream porn rules.Watch the movie
Petra was the filmmaker in focus at the first Pornfilmfest in Berlin where she and her cast showed Sexual Sushi and a preview of Female Fantasies to an enthusiastic audience in sold-out cinemas. Petra secured DVD distribution, and the first copies of Sexual Sushi appear in sex shops across Europe.
