Curves, stretch marks, curly hair. Dressed in their nudity and colorless bars of paint, they merge and embrace. They fuck in their blissful mess, haphazard limits diminished to silky grey smears.
Rococo Royalle is a queer feminist smut performer and director from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They started The Lust Garden after a brief stint in mainstream porn that left them feeling disillusioned and frustrated. Using their art-school-dropout education, they’ve been filming for the project, along with continuing their fine art work on the side, for the last four years. When they’re not busy touring, they can usually be found cuddling their bunnies, reading some critical theory, or dancing at a techno show. See more of them at rococoroyalle.com.
