A massive undertaking of 250 films over 15 years
An uncomfortably personal journey into the mind, sex, life, history thinking, perversions and regrets of one woman – from age 4 to 40
Before Missy Jubilee’s Future Sex Love Art Projekt, a person could be forgiven for laughing off the idea that “porn” could be art, or offer an honest look at what makes a person who they are.
Missy Jubilee has paved a new way, with the star, artist, and writer stepping out to transform adult film on her own terms.
With a goal of 250 films, each revealing a different aspect of who she is, she’s already 205 deep and each one has been more powerful than the last.
Missy writes and directs healthy, thoughtful, personal erotica that appeals to people with brains, who appreciate creativity and aren’t afraid to have their beliefs challenged.
That’s part of the vision of Missy Jubilee, an art star in her own right – who is getting increasing exposure for her ongoing series of short adult films that are painfully difficult to categorize.

She then worked in various creative fields, including graphic design, advertising, music production, and web design.

Yes, the films are hot, but not in the way the last generation would think about porn.
Artful, for sure, but free from being pretentious. Sometimes even sad, but with soundtracks that could make any dance music club fire up.
Adult film is the last place to expect this kind of thing, but Missy Jubilee is clearly following her own direction, and it’s leading into unmapped territory.
Missy is single-handedly mainstreaming erotica in the most interesting and unexpected ways.

An intelligent alternative
According to Missy, a great deal of her early motivation was a broad feeling of disgust and distrust for the conventional adult industry, where filmmakers seem to be in an “arms race” to degrade women, to see who can be the most disgusting, explicit and hardcore.
The Future Sex Love Art Project launched as a response to this… and aims to provide a healthy intelligent alternative to dumb porn. 187 films later, she hasn’t even begun to run out of ideas.
Missy continued, “Many people thought 250 films represented a huge number, but it really isn’t. Who doesn’t have a 250 subject they would like to explore? This is an act of love and passion… sometimes it feels great and sometimes it hurts. But I’m putting it all out there for the world to see, and hopefully appreciate.”
The first 120 films were completed with her film making partner – television and film industry veteran Max Jubilee – as cinematographer, editor & director.
The chemistry that was captured was undeniable.
However, sadly, Max took his own life on 13th January 2020 at the age of 60 years old. He was twenty years older than Missy.
These events were dealt with in Missy’s films ‘I LIKE EM DROPPED (DEAD)’ and also ‘KUNT’
Interestingly, the highly personal film ‘I LIKE EM DROPPED (DEAD)’ is the only one where there is no nudity.
Returning to art roots
What is Missy’s end goal with her project?
Adult film stardom? Mainstream acceptance?
No, Missy wants to return to her art roots and have all 250 films playing simultaneously on 250 screens at the Tate Modern in London, and MOMA New York by 2025 in an exhibition titled ‘The New Pornographers’
“I want the naked body to be back in the best art museums in the world, not relegated to Pornhub”
