2013 Feminist Porn Awards Winners and Review by Kelly Shibari

Attending the 2013 Feminist Porn Awards (Finally!)

I’d never been to Toronto for Good For Her’s Feminist Porn Awards. I’ve been nominated several times, and even won an award for Honoured Website in 2011 for http://PaddedKINK.com – which I had the lovely April Flores accept on my behalf. This year, I was lucky enough to get to go as a HotMoviesForHer representative, which came with a really nice (though slightly anxiety-causing) set of perks!

2013 Feminist Porn Awards

The Capitol Event Theatre is an absolutely beautiful location, complete with great architecture throughout reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century theatre. The balcony upstairs was reserved for VIP guests of the Awards, and I think they definitely had a premium view of all of the festivities – from the semi-formally dressed nominees to the antics of the frisky, sexy, show attendees, it was a beautiful, dreamlike space full of revelers of all kinds.

This was the eighth year that the Awards had taken place, and in line with current trends, they named this year’s Awards show “50 Shades of Porn,” which also described the eclectic crowd and the varied topics covered in the nominated films.

The crowd at the 2013 Feminist Porn Awards

Hosts Lex Vaughn (of Queer as Folk and Short Bus fame) and Ryan G Hinds (of Hedwig fame, amongst many other credits) were brilliant and hilarious in their turns both on and off the stage – with Vaughn mostly on stage and Ryan hopping on and off stage to do random interviews with nominees and show-goers alike to the delight of the audience. Live performances gave the viewers a reprive from the Awards show, the highlight of which was a beautiful yet raunchy burlesque number to the tune of Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison” by the lovely Coco La Crème (who is also Artistic Director for the Awards).

It was a delight to see films that I had seen the night before at the Public. Provocative. Porn screening, including Because I Want You to Watch and Biodildo. The biggest cheers from the crowd came, though, when Krutch won for Sexiest Short – and most deservedly so. It wasn’t just the sexiest “crip porn” I had ever seen, but probably one of the sexiest short films I’d seen this year, I was definitely one of the loudest of those who cheered for Mia Gimp and Clark Matthews (an interview with them is forthcoming!).

As a rep for HotMoviesForHer, my main obligation was to present the Movie of the Year. As much as I like performing, doing interviews and running seminars and workshops, I always seem to get super nervous when it comes to speaking on a stage to a large group of people. Luckily, my presentation speech was written up for me, and though my hands were shaking, I was able to present the award at the very end of the evening.

The party went well into the night after the Awards was over – staff and volunteers cleared the lower seating area to make room for dancing…but many of us had to be up early the next morning for the Feminist Porn Conference at the University of Toronto, and had to duck out right after the Awards.

Some Of The Hottest Guys In the Biz!

If I never hear the phrase “there are no good looking guys in porn” again, it will be too soon.  Seriously, every once in a while someone says that to me and it takes all the self control I have not to bitch slap some knowledge into their heads.  But rather than resorting to that, I decided that I should make a gallery of super hot porno dudes that I can shove into their faces instead.  Of course I couldn’t fit every single sexy man in the industry, so here is an abbreviated list of smutty studs that Ginger and I agree are extra hot, in no particular order.


No need to thank us, but you are welcome.

xoxo

We would be so happy to give this trio a ride.  An amazing picture of Courtney Trouble, Dylan Ryan and Billy Castro, from the San Francisco Bay Guardian’s article about queer porn stars heading to Vegas for the AVNs (where QueerPorn.TV was nominated for Best Alternative Website!) – Queer and Boning in Las Vegas.

Sigh, this picture is seriously awesome.  Thanks for posting (and posing), Courtney!

Top Trans Tuesday – My Five Trans Porn Picks!

This week, our Top Five Tuesday is all about trans folks!  Starting on Thursday, I will be out of the office and attending the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, an awesome conference that focuses on the issues, needs and experiences of transgender-identified individuals.  And not only am I attending – I am actually doing a workshop!  Yep, you guessed it, on trans and gender queer porn!  How exciting!  So this week, I wanted to get ready for the conference and share my top trans picks with you!  Enjoy!

Brunch Bunch: New studio Dolores Park Studios (from the makers of Trannywood Pictures) hit the ground running with this first release, Brunch Bunch: Queerly SF.  Following the debauchery of what happens when a harmless queer brunch turns into a ’70s style key party, this movie is complete with super hot folks of all genders and identities getting busy in every room of the apartment.  Special treats include Syd Blackovich and Drew Deveaux!
Billy Castro Does The Mission: Billy Castro is one of the hottest transmen on the block!  Well, in the neighborhood, I guess, because this awesome flick has him fucking his way around San Francisco’s Mission District – getting it on with queer faves Dylan Ryan, Jiz Lee, Akira Raine and Lorelei Lee.  Man, oh man, this makes me so sad that I no longer live in San Francisco.
Doing It Ourselves – The Trans Women Porn Project: Sometimes when you want something done right, you need to do it yourself – which is exactly what director Tobi Hill-Meyer did when she wasn’t seeing herself and her trans sisters’ experiences represented in porn.  This awesome project cuts through the not so trans friendly history of trans women and porn, and brings us real sex, real passion and real experiences.  I love it.
Buckback Mountain: Buck Angel, the self professed ‘man with a pussy,’ brings us this fantastic Brokeback parody that features mega hot cowboys fucking all over the place.  Can you really beat that??  Thanks, Buck!
Crash Pad Series – Episode 9: Julie & Michelle: When you mix the amazingness of the Crash Pad with the sex appeal of the insanely hot Michelle Aston and the delicious whimpering of trans woman Julie, you get a serious match made in porno heaven.  It doesn’t hurt that Michelle Aston has been one of my ultimate favorite stars since I became a professional pervert and seeing her here makes me even happier than ever before.

Ready for the workshop!

Men of Monday

Happy Monday! I know, I know, Monday’s kind of suck monkey balls but I’m here to help – I bring you the men of Monday. Hot male eye candy to make the start of the week a whole hell of a lot easier to bear! I was asked by my lady loving co-conspirators if I’d like to take over supplying the male eye candy portion, since I like me some man meat. After all the swearing and exclamations of “oh hell yeah,” I was left with a conundrum – where to begin? Being the odd little ducky I am, I’m starting with two of the hottest trans-men it’s ever been my pleasure to ogle!

First up, my own first – Buck Angel; this hot tatted and muscular bear really needs no introduction though I’m going to give him one anyway. The famous ‘man with a pussy’ has been turning heads in adult entertainment since 2004 and dropping my tongue to the floor in admiration since I first stumbled upon his films doing inventory about a year ago. I know I’m so late to the party but that just means I’ve got a nice backlog of films to drool over – woof!

Billy Castro might be a youngster on the adult entertainment scene but he’s been taking my breath away since I saw his very first promo pic. I’m a total fool for a guy with tattoos and a sense of style and that one image was enough to bring me to my figurative knees.

Enjoy the candy ladies, next week some cismen to ease you into your week! And I promise I won’t inundate you with Lukas Ridgeston and David Taylor, probably, almost definitely, maybe.

Top Five Tuesday – Feminist Porn Award Winners!

The 2010 Feminist Porn Awards have come and gone, leaving behind a glittering trail of amazing winners and movies that truly can’t be missed!  Many of the award winners were individuals, which thoroughly deserve their moment in the sun, but this Top Five Tuesday is dedicated to celebrating a certain few winning movies that embrace the awesomeness that is feminist porn.

Bordello

I usually let the other ladies have first pick of the queer titles on HMFH but I’ve heard nothing but good stuff about April Flores, want to see the legendary Sarah Lee Sinful in action and I think I’m ready to take another stab at cutie Billy Castro so I snatched this one up as soon as I saw it.

From the description, looks like this is going to be a murder mystery on the level of “Clue” classic-awesome. Unfortunately that means Billy has to die. Rather spectacularly, after only one scene with Mistress of the Bordello, April Flores.

Oh my gods, April has amazing skin – and knows how to work Billy’s leather harness to good effect during their scene. Definitely an awesome pair up, you really get the sense that April is the far worldlier Bordello owner and Billy is the youngest stud in her impressive stable. At first I was a little confused when Billy strapped on the big black glove but as the movie plays on it becomes clear that it’s a device everyone uses when doing finger work on someone else – awesome stylistic inclusion of safe sex that doesn’t look any less hot, and in a threesome scene, Courtney Trouble even makes sure that we get a shot of one of the characters condom wrapped strapon/cock.

20 Questions With Sarah Lee Sinful

(picture via LittlePinkBook)

What’s so sinful about Sarah Lee? See for yourself! Originally a fetish photo model, the sultry Sarah Lee Sinful is just beginning to dip her perfectly polished toenails into the delicious world of queer porno flicks. One of the few black alt ladies in the industry, Sinful has brought her super sexy style to the screen in a few of Courtney Trouble’s latest movies and appeals to all audiences (be they straight, mainstream, queer, etc.) with her brilliantly simple mantra that ‘sexuality is fluid and love is color blind.’ I don’t know about you, but I think I’m ready to sin…

1. How (and when) did you get started in the industry?
I started my quest to become a fetish model at 18.  I’ve always been obsessed with vintage garments from 1931-49.  One day I was searching for a used steel bone corset and a picture came up of a woman very tightly cinched.  It was Dita Von Teese.  Dita led me into the world of modern pinups and fetish modeling.  I browsed her photo sets and read her interviews.  I just knew that Miss Von Teese had paved the way just for me because this was my dream job! Vintage lingerie + Kink + Performance = Happy Sarah! Continue reading 20 Questions With Sarah Lee Sinful
