This film is a milestone for porn from a female perspective. One of the first films produced in Europe by an independent female director breaking all the rules of the porn industry. Featuring Petra’s friends who are real life lovers rather than porn actors the film captured intimacy, chemistry and passion that go far beyond dated porn clichés. The film also features two abstract erotic scenes that defined Petra’s artcore approach to erotic filmmaking. It took over a year to get this film into the first sex shop – the industry was critical and prejudiced: a film without any well known porn stars featuring subtle erotica rather than triple anal porn stunts was supposedly not what the customers wanted. Petra believed in her concept of sexual sushi rather than hot dogs and she was right: the viewers were ready for new and alternative porn. Porn that was not produced on materialistic terms but as a creative and kinky labour of love by all involved. Sexual Sushi has become an alternative porn classic.
