One of the consequence of pornification – the cultural process by wich pornography slips into our everyday lives as a commonly accepted element – is that it made more common and natural for women to watch and enjoy porn.
Ramiro Lapiedra, Apolonia's boyfriend and producer, directs her during a scene.
A lot of porn these days is filmed not on a dedicated set, but in the apartments/homes of directors and other industry folks. Apolonia shoot took place in her flat in the center of Barcelona and was directed by her boyfriend, Ramiro Lapiedra.
THE LIVING ROOM OF APOLONIA LAPIEDRA IS ALSO HER FILM SET.
