Why do we desire what we desire? Do sexual fantasies have no limits? What about porn? Is it the translation of those fantasies? DIYSEX is a film that reflects on the use of image and language in mainstream and alternative pornography. In this film, a girl sets out to make her own porn film. She realises that in the pornography we are used to seeing objectification of women's bodies, fetishism of differences, use of racist language and the chain reproduction of identical sexual scenes that are only intended for heterosexual male desire.

Throughout this journey, the protagonist will contact people who work in the porn industry to find out if there is a way to make a porn film that is as far away as possible from the uses of images of what we call mainstream pornography. This film travels through different steps involved in making a porn film. From the writing of the script through the shooting to its distribution, always focusing on the reflections and thoughts of the protagonist, to the point of asking whether it makes sense to review and move away from the normative uses of the erotic and pornographic image. This film also explores other issues such as the labour problems of the performers caused by the stigmatisation of sex work, which, as the protagonist will discover, strongly affects the daily life of sex workers.
