Petra Joy bio


Strawberry Seductress

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.

Sexual Sushi

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.

Petra secured DVD distribution, and the first copies of Sexual Sushi appear in sex shops across Europe.

Her Porn series

Finding similar-minded female directors through festival appearances and networking, Petra began to produce the best-selling Her Porn compilation series in 2008, giving fellow female directors a place to collect and distribute their erotic films that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. The Her Porn titles have been a hit, and Petra has gone on to curate six volumes of the series – featuring a great variety of female fantasies by accomplished directors from all over the world. Some of these titles are now available to view on Cinema Joy.

10 years of Joy

2014 saw an important milestone for Petra, marking 10 years since the release of “Sexual Sushi” and the birth of her successful erotic film label.

“When I shot Sexual Sushi ten years ago I considered this a creative experiment rather than a new career or business venture. I am grateful that ten years down the line the interest in my explicit erotic films from a female perspective continues to grow and want to thank all the wonderful people who have been part of my journey and continue to support my productions!”
