Jacky St. James on the craft of writing porn for women

  • Jacky St. James

While men are aroused primarily by the physical, for women, the emotional and cerebral cues of a good love story are erotic. This is not to say women can't enjoy watching x-rated action; they just want to see the romance that builds up to the sex. Having grown up with explicit content just a click away, this generation of women is curious about porn, but studios are still hesitant to invest in films for couples and women. New Sensations is one of the few adult companies taking a chance on the untapped female market with their Romance Series: a line of plot porns with high production value. Jacky St. James is one of the minds behind this series, and her efforts seem to be paying off. The Romance Series has been nominated for a number of XBiz and AVN awards this year, including "Screenplay of the Year" for St. James's Dear Abby script.
