An Open Letter To All My Lovers, Friends And Mentors


Pole dancer, porn star, politician and queer activist Zahra Stardust thanks all those she has worked with – and fucked – over the years. She comes home from another long day fighting for sexual and personal freedom and shrugs off the outer layers of her persona. As we hear her inner monologue she relaxes in a bath before enjoying her giant black dildo and electric vibrator. The personal and the political unite in this unusual short film.

This film has also had the title Fists Are For Fucking, Not Fighting

About The Film

An Open Letter To All My Lovers, Friends and Mentors is a collaboration between Zahra Stardust and Ms. Naughty. Zahra’s essay on the intersection between sex, politics and activism forms the film’s voiceover, against which is juxtaposed very personal, sexual images of Zahra at home. Zahra says “I like my love affairs served with a side dish of politics.” This erotic and outspoken film captures Zahra’s passion in all its forms.
