Paulita Pappel is a Spanish filmmaker and feminist pornographer. After studying comparative literature in Berlin, she worked both in front and behind the camera. She is the founder of Lustery.com, a platform dedicated to the sex lives of real-life couples from around the world. She also co-organizes and curates the Pornfilmfestival in Berlin. Paulita works as a producer, performer, director, screenwriter and podcaster, and is an advocate for a sex-positive, consent-based culture.
Recently she started working on her new creation HardWerk.com where she directs and participates in ethically created gang-bang stories.
Paulita believes that there is much more to intimacy and relationships than what happens in the bedroom and therefore she created POV – an inclusive platform that takes a deeper look into the world of sex, sexuality and relationships, one point of view at a time.
