Sarah had the privilege of presenting at the first annual Feminist Porn Conference which coincided with the 8th annual Feminist Porn Awards (sponsored by Good for Her).  Her presentation was a piece of her thesis research on feminist pornography.  Entitled Towards a Pussy Oriented Pedagogy, her presentation was a part of a panel entitled "Watch and Learn: Sex Education Discourses in Feminist Porn."  Sarah spoke alongside established film scholar Kevin Heffernan and conference organizer/feminist pornography-activist-educator Tristan Taormino.  Her presentation focused on how the feminist self-help porn of Tristan Taormino and Nina Hartley works towards dismantling classic pedagogical models, many of which have been appropriated in the current resurgence of anti-porn/anti-sex feminism.
