Meet The Feminist Porn Producer Who Wants To Change How We See Sex

Mackenzie Peck was at a house party in the US city of Baltimore when she had a lightbulb moment: she wanted to start a feminist P0*n magazine.

“I didn’t really know anyone, so I was wondering around on my own when I noticed a group of women going up to the second floor of this home. Naturally, I followed,” she recalls to The Independent.

“Soon I found myself in the midst of a game of dress up. Women were trying on and exchanging clothes in a beautifully sexy and carefree way. I thought to myself, how can I be in this sort of environment as much as possible? The next words that popped into my mind, were, ‘I’ll start a P0*n mag’.”

She wanted to create ethical p****graphy that users could be sure those involved wanted to be a part of, and that represented bodies that weren’t only white, straight, thin and conventionally attractive.

But as she was busy working as an artist and running a gallery, nothing came of the idea. Not until a friend asked her if he could do the first shoot. Then two models followed. And a stylist. Math Magazine, which is self-published, was born.

“I felt beholden to finish what we started,” says Peck. “I didn’t want to let them down.”

“Early on, I was approaching people in public. I’d see a couple making out on the subway and think, ‘Well, if they are ok with this sort of exhibitionism, maybe they’d be down to model for my P0*n magazine.’ While they were usually flattered and maybe mildly confused, none of these strangers ended up in the magazine,” she admits.

Now, The Math team don’t so much find their models but models find them on Instagram and Twitter. She adds: “I continue to work hard so as not to let down all the people who believe in the new type of s*xual expression and connection that Math Magazine is heralding.”

But after such a titillating start, why is the magazine called something as clinical as Math?

“These decisions are a sign of the times and the work left to be done,” explains Peck. “The name, Math Magazine, works with the limitations of s*xual expression today. Just by looking at the name and the cover, one can’t really tell what’s going on.

“For this reason, I like to say that Math Magazine is for the curious and the bold. By being cheeky about our X-rated content, a bit secretive, we are able to put our work out there without being too affected by censorship, stigma, and public shame. We are cunning in our defiance.”

That “new s*xual expression” that Peck speaks of isn’t always understood by those who are used to mainstream P0*n, which Peck suggests is unreal and not all that sexy at all. But that’s the . – or at least one of them – that Peck is looking to provoke.

“At events where new people are seeing Math Magazine for the first time, I am often met with the ., ‘That’s not P0*n!’ And I must insist that it is.”

“What’s wrong with the P0*n industry is that it isn’t satisfying the needs of most people,” she argues. “The array of body types and vast ocean of s*xual desires are hardly depicted and people are eager to find something new. Something with heart, that exalts se*uality for all it’s magic, and embraces all the ways we can do it.”

“Mainstream P0*n lives on the internet. As a print-only publication we circumvent that clusterf**k of pop-ups, paywalls, garish ads, click bait, grotesque and oppressive content, and plagiarized material. Our publication is an oasis from distraction, censorship, and comment threads. Math Magazine is a curated respite from the strange and often disappointing world of mainstream P0*n.

“Unlike most P0*n producers, we aren’t selling you an unobtainable fantasy,” she says. In her eyes, this approach translates into more meaningful s*xual experiences and relationships in general. “Through empathy, communication, and trust we can find what we need in love and lust.”

Peck hopes that one day her magazine will no longer be seen as rebellious. “We can’t be outsiders forever, right?” she asks. “I look forward to the day when we are a household name abolishing shame and opening up conversations.”

In her quest to shake-up mainstream p****graphy, Peck considers every minute detail in the magazine’s shoots. When piecing together new issues, Peck says no two shoots are the same.

“The chemistry between models and photographers sets the mood,” she says. “The nervous energy of a young couple can add to the excitement of a more athletic shoot. A strong connection between partners making love in their bedroom has contributed to the sensuality and realism of a shoot, and unexpected moments of inspiration have sparked new directions on set even after we’ve worked for hours. I spend a lot of time establishing clear expectations, a shared vision, trust, and a collective receptiveness to inspiration.”

So far, after a year of making Math Magazine, readers and fans have reached out to her to thank her for trying to re-think P0*n.

“People are clearly hungry for alternatives to the P0*n industry that has grown familiar, tired, and out of touch. Math Magazine is for thoughtful sensualists, lovers alive today.”

“Using high caliber, beautiful imagery, and thoughtful design we elevate the genre. We are redefining p****graphy by featuring more common body types, s*xual fantasies often sought but rarely seen, and a level of diversity that is unusual in mainstream media.”

So what does Peck want readers to take from Math? To change their view of s*x? To try something new?

“We seek personal liberation. Singular and maybe one of the most intimate acts is to forgive oneself for the existence of your body and its desires. As an entire society embraces this mindset we, by extension, seek s*xual revolution that dissolves mechanisms of oppression,” she says.

“The short answer,” she adds, “is we want to turn you on.”
