I am so excited to hear about this years Feminist Porn Awards Nominees!

It’s really exciting to see some of the works by so many really talented people. They are strong and diverse and each year the nominations get better and better and better. Congrats everyone, particularly to the companies I’ve worked with who I know put all their passion behind their work. Congrats to people I do some behind the scenes work with, including Shine Louise Houston, whose two websites CrashPadSeries.com and HeavenlySpire.com (and Crash Pad Series Volume 6: Wide Open DVD) were nominated.

I’m also thrilled to have performed in the following films:

and these nominated websites:

And am also thrilled to see directors such as Nenna (who just opened Oakland’s first progressive sex toy retailer, Feelmore510), N. Maxwell Landers, and Sophia St. James budding with new works, and to Bobbi Starr who launched her website this year. I’m also looking forward to attending and meeting new directors, producers, and performers who I have yet to be introduced to. This will be EPIC!


Here’s the official press release!

Good For Her Presents:

The Sixth Annual Feminist Porn Awards &

Provocative.Public.Porn: The Year’s Best in Feminist Film

Toronto, ON – March 11, 2011. Good For Her is proud to announce the nominees for the Sixth Anniversary of the Feminist Porn Awards. The Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards are the longest running celebration of erotica focused on women and marginalized people. The nominees for the 2011 awards prove that Feminist Porn continues to evolve, grow and create outstanding representations of sexuality from the raunchy to the artistic (and sometimes both at the same time.)

Started in 2006, The Feminist Porn Awards are produced by Good For Her, a Toronto, Canada based feminist sexuality education centre and sex store.  This event was started when Good For Her realized it wasn’t enough to criticize adult films for not adequately representing women’s – and in many cases, men’s – sexuality.  The Feminist Porn Awards were created with the goals of celebrating ethical, feminist porn, exposing this work to a larger audience, and creating community amongst filmmakers, performers and audience members.  Since starting the Feminist Porn Awards, Good For Her has handed out over 70 awards to movies, short films, websites, directors, heartthrobs, boundary breakers and visionaries, while shining a light on the astoundingly sexy work of these feminist artists and filmmakers.

As porn star and performance artist Annie Sprinkle famously said, “The answer to bad porn isn’t no porn…it’s to try and make better porn!”

The nominees on this year’s list continue to strive to provide erotic entertainment that is smart, sexy, and appreciates women as viewers.  In addition to featuring over 50 nominations, the 2011 nominee list includes the highest number of nominated websites ever at 11.

The nominated films for the 2011 Feminist Porn Awards show the true diversity of feminist porn –  from the educational and sultry Oral Sex for Couples series by Jaiya, to the creative sexual pairings inCarlos Batts’ Artcore, on to the taboo-busting Mommy is Coming from independent filmmaker Cheryl Dunye, all the way to the dynamic and androgynous performances of Drew Deveaux.  These are all just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the talent and sharp erotic eye of the feminist porn creators in the 2011 nominees list.

These nominees are under consideration for categories including: Sexiest Straight Film, Hottest Trans Scene/Film, Most Deliciously Diverse Cast and many more.  The Nominees for the 2011 Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards are (in alphabetical order – film title first)
