  • Feminist students filmed porno to fight “gender tension” at Columbia.
  • The girls engage in activities including kissing, rubbing eggs on their bodies, and twerking around a chicken carcass.
  • Claimed the library represented sexism at the school because only male authors' names are on the building.
  • Columbia University and Barnard College students filmed a feminist pornographic film in Columbia's Butler Library to fight what they see as “gender tension” at the school.

    The NSFW film, titled "Initiatiøn," was filmed as a feminist statement exploring "the rituals of American Ivy League secret societies, to the point of hysteria, highlighting our culture's perception of female desire,” according to an article published on Gawker.

    “Butler is an extremely charged space — the names emblazoned on the stone facade are, for me, a stimulant for resistance."   

    It begins with a group of girls sitting around a library table taking their shirts off. As the film progresses, the girls engage in activities including kissing, rubbing eggs on their bodies and twerking around chicken carcass.

    One of the film’s creators, Columbia art and history major Coco Young, told the IvyGate blog that the library itself represented sexism at the school because only male author’s names are on the facade of the building.

    Barnard College senior Sara Grace Powell, who appeared in the film, agreed.

    “Butler is an extremely charged space — the names emblazoned on the stone facade are, for me, a stimulant for resistance," she said.

    “I work in Butler but sometimes feel suffocated by it … The point was to transgress the relative conservatism (and its history) of the space with this hysterical intervention.”

    Powell also serves as a curator for the school’s Postcrypt art gallery.

    Vogue contributor and the author of the Slutever blog Karley Sciortino created the film with Young.

    “I haven’t made a video for Purple in a while,” Sciortino’s blog post introducing the film stated. 

    “If you’re in the mood for a #throwback, the most recent was a blow-job instruction video that I made with Sandy Kim last May.”
