While we’re on the subject of movies: the government of Catalonia, Spain has granted filmmaker Conrad Son a Â£10,000 grant to make “women-friendly erotic films”. Pink News UK reports:
Officials in the north-eastern Spanish region have deemed the erotic films useful in spreading the Catalan language.
Mr Son told ABC newspaper that as an experienced pornographer, he would be able to keep his films erotic rather than explicit.
The films, with titles like Laura is Not Alone and The Memory of Fish, see female characters go on erotic adventures, including lesbian sex.
More conservative government officials, meanwhile, insist the grant “borders on misappropriation of taxpayers’ money”.
