"People who ride bikes find people who ride bikes sexy"

The East Van Porn Collective of Vancouver has produced a lo-budget skin-flick that has just finished a self-financed promotional tour of the US. A film within the film is based on the "sexy" bike culture of Vancouver. Could 'BikeSexual' find a home at any of the growing number of bicycle film festivals around the world?
Publish date:

According to Vancouver listings magazine 'Straight', the East Van Porn Collective, similar to cycling, is a "small space for cultural disobedience that takes back power, impacts the planet, and makes a political statement."

And, like some parts of the cycling community, the East Van Porn Collective has a racy outlook on life. Racy as in raunchy, that is.

The San Francisco Bay Guardian calls the film 'Made in Secret: The Story of the East Van Porn Collective' "extraordinary" and says it's "fun watching the group members plan and film their latest opus, a 'pan-sexual romp' dubbed BikeSexual."

Tod Booth, organiser of the San Francisco Independent Film Festival said the film is "an inspiring portrait of a really smart, lovely, unlikely group of people pushing themselves way out into the unknown. And it just might start a little revolution: May a thousand porn collectives bloom!”

The 'actors' are not six-pack hunks or pneumatic babes, Nerdgirl, JD Superstar, Monster, Mr. Pants, Muffy and Professor University are some of the members of what could be the "world's only underground DIY anarcho-feminist porn collective."

And like many of those who live in East Vancouver, the makers of 'Made in Secret' are cyclists. They believe Vancouver’s bicycle culture is "uniquely sexy."

'BikeSexual' - the film within the film - was shot in the woods, in a skatepark and on the streets of Vancouver.

JD Superstar told Straight.com: “Bike culture here is about free love and cycling. It’s a response to SUV culture, to the waste we produce. We use our own bikes to propel ourselves. There’s an ethic of community.”

Mr. Pants said: “Vancouver is a very sexualized place. There’s a big porn industry here. And, people who ride bikes find people who ride bikes sexy.”

The East Van Porn Collective has a blog-site:http://evpc.blogspot.com/and a tame trailer for the group's film can be accessed here:http://eastvanporncollective.org/WARNING: this trailer contains graphic scenes of bicycles, mud and some helmets.
