Rubis Collective (Saphir Cocks & Diamond's Bitch)
RUBIS COLLECTIVE: Rubis Collective is a collective of queer artists aiming to create interdisciplinary, sexually explicit artwork. With PORN as our main media, we want to make films that are both artistic as well as sexually arousing, putting the narrative in the center of sexual representation. We think that today’s mainstream gay porn is inefficient to provide us with the narratives, the diversity and the stories we want to see, serving only as mechanical relief of today’s society. We want to add our voices to the new generation of pornographers who are trying to give porn a new face.
