The Most Anticipated Films Out of the HUMP! Festival

Dan Savage’s short-form porn fest celebrates its 14th year.

Everyone has their own special relationship to porn. Some adore it. Some love it, but hate themselves for watching it. Others think it’s awful. Dan Savage, who most of us know as the most visible sex and love expert speaking on queer themes, can’t get enough.

Or at least, he wants us to know that whatever your thing is, you should rejoice in the fact that statistically speaking, you’re probably not alone in your freakiness. This year, as the HUMP! Film Festival – a celebration of short, less-than-five-minute films with porn as a common theme. The makers of the films are often amateurs, and kink of all kinds is welcome as the subject. This year, the first that HUMP! makes its way to Palm Springs as well as Los Angeles, we’re looking forward to a few extra-promising selections that sound just weird enough to work. At least, for five minutes at a time.
