Quotes

“The emergence of Feminist Porn into popular culture can be attributed in some part to a group of remarkable performers who thrust their reputations, their sex appeal and their politics into the limelight. When very few people were making and producing queer porn, this year’s boundary breaker was out in public: blogging, performing and having sex with purpose. Starting their career with an ejaculation scene that knocked the concept of the facial cumshot on its ass… and continuing today to push the limits of gender and sexuality representation in porn, this years ‘Boundary Breaker of the Year’ goes to JIZ LEE.” – Good For Her, Feminist Porn Awards 2010, presented by Lucas Silveira of The Cliks

“One of the major stars of the ‘queer porn’ set, Jiz Lee possesses a rare sexual je ne sais quoi.”
– AVN Magazine, April 2011
