Where’s the porn?

What do you mean "accidental porn star?"
With the Masturbation Monday project I set out to do research to write a book. I created an archive of research into my own sexual shame and pleasure. Editing the films made me see my sexuality, really see it.
I called these videos research, and I used words like erotic, artsy, documentary and film to describe them. I felt good about my work.
When fans started telling me I was their favorite porn star, I recoiled at the word. Porn was dirty in a bad way. I making something beautiful, intellectually rigorous and emotionally real. I was making art. I was doing investigative journalism. I wasn’t making porn, because I’m a good person.
Porn is anything that intends to elicit sexual excitement.
Sex is not bad. Producing porn doesn’t make me a bad person.
It took about six months of producing porn before I realized my reticence to use the word was just another layer of shame! I no longer distance myself from the crazy panoply of human wackiness we call porn.
I am a proud porn star, albeit an accidental one.
Who is Jupiter and who is Jupiter’s Slut?
When the name Jupiter’s Slut popped out of that wild creative miasma and into my head, I knew it was right. I just didn’t know how right it was.
Jupiter is a planet. Astrologically speaking it represents intellectual and spiritual pursuits. It’s a planet of growth and expansion. It is associated with words like morality, gratitude, hope and honor.
Once upon a time, I was terrified that being sexual made me immoral. Now I’m filled with overwhelming gratitude for the acceptance I’ve learned by investigating my sexuality as Jupiter’s Slut.
That acceptance has spilled into every area of my life. Jupiter is my most expansive self. And Jupiter’s Slut is that part of me that refuses to be shamed.
Why call yourself a slut?
I was a virgin when I started thinking of myself as a slut. I was so ashamed to enjoy any physical pleasure of a sexual nature, that kissing and making out with a few boys had me dubbing myself The Virgin Slut. Intellectualizing about the impossible irony of being a virgin slut, didn’t alleviate the shame.
I continued to suppress my sexuality into my late thirties.
I began redefining the word slut for myself as I reclaimed my life and sexuality. I’ve come to think S.L.U.T. stands for Shameless Luminous Untamed Truth.
That’s how I try to live my life, by my untamed truth.
What should I call you?
Please call me Jupiter’s Slut, or Jupiter.
