Postcard from the Feminist Porn Awards 2010

by Jiz Lee on / Feminist Porn Awards, Queer Porn

Last night I attended the screening “Provocative.Public/Porn: The Year’s Best in Feminist Film” part of the Feminist Porn Awards celebrations presented by Good For Her in Toronto. The night started out with cocktails at the Canadian Sex Toy store, which is the most comfortable sex toy store I’ve seen. The cream-colored walls are lined with high quality sex toys, books, and a large adult video selection, and two comfy chairs invite people to sit, browse literature and even talk. The upstairs room (which held drinks and food) is their workshop space. It made me wish I lived in Canada; what a fantastic resource!

At the screening, guests Tristan Taormino, April Flores, Nica Noelle, and Shine Louise Houston presented works from the last year. Nica presented Deviants (hot extramarital affair, with Manuel Fuara — who is such a sweet guy; he bought me and Dylan drinks at AVN), the production quality was high and the sex made me wanting sex! Tristan presented Experts Guide to Anal Sex for Men, which featured Devon, a Kink model from MeninPain, and Penny Flame. Educational and entertaining! April showed three clips, one from Bordello by Courtney Trouble, and her solo from Behind the Red Door and she, Syd and I from Dangerous Curves. I wasn’t expecting to see myself on screen that night, and it was a nice surprise; that scene is so ethereal — very woodland nymph. Shine showed Syd and Mickey Mod’s scene from CrashPadSeries Volume 5. I love their scene and also loved the question asked in the post-screening panel about how fluid crashpadseries.com is and the queer models who shoot for the site. I’ll have to get into it more later, as I’m off to meet Courtney Trouble for a drink down at the bar. We’re here in the Gladstone and I love it!

The ceremony’s tonight, I’ll try to tweet but it’s SO expensive for this global data plan on my iPhone.
Anyhow, best of luck to everyone, more soon!
xo,
