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.

Kelly Shibari going to Feminist Porn Awards for HotMoviesForHer.com!

Kelly Shibari will be attending the Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto on behalf of HotMoviesForHer.com this year!  We are honored to have a Representative from the Feminist Porn community be able to travel and share our brand with our fans as well as hers.  Keep a lookout for her posts on twitter @KellyShibari for live updates during the festivities.

In case anyone doesn’t already LOVE Kelly as much as we do here at HM4H, here is a little bio for you:

From her background in design and construction in mainstream film and television production to performing in front of the camera as the sexually-charged figurehead for chubby Asian girls everywhere, Kelly Shibari is a stereotype-breaking tour-de-force. Her multi-award-winning site, PaddedKINK, is the premier destination for plus-size fetish performers, and she has the distinct honor of being the only plus-sized Fleshlight Girl in existence. Her self-produced, self-marketed DVD, Kelly Shibari is Overloaded, was nominated for both XBIZ and AVN, not just for the DVD itself but also for its marketing campaign. It was recently also nominated for a Feminist Porn Award.

Shibari has regularly contributed to adult industry publications such as AVN and XBIZ and directed panels and seminars at conventions, as well as consult with many companies on the use of social media to market adult materials and products in the mainstream through her marketing company, ThePRSMGroup.

Originally from Japan, Kelly currently calls the West Coast her home and constantly confuses her colleagues with her old-fashioned, Eastern sensibilities.

And That’s A Wrap – HotMoviesForHer Says Goodbye to 2012!

Well, it’s that time again – the end of the year. Can you believe 2012 is already done!  Crazy!  Take a look at what we’ve been up to in the last 12 months to help us ring in 2013.

First up is Ginger Leigh!

Top Six Movies (five just wasn’t enough):

 gives me a girl boner every time, but this is one movie I shouldn’t watch while at work… if you know what I mean.
-The all-knowing  breaks down everything there is to know about pegging (female to male strap-on play) in an easy to follow and hot educational porno.  It’s a sex nerd’s dream!
-Beautiful, hot, dark, dirty, filthy, pervy, sweet.  Some of the words that describe Wasteland starring  and .
 – This is the hottest weirdest sex-free porno ever.  That is all.
-Vampires are played out, but Voracious has such awesome, bloody, hardcore scenes that I can’t leave it off my list.  The casting is great, the acting is decent, and the sex is wild.
Although I reviewed this movie this year, it was released back in 2004.  This movie is beautifully shot in all of its corseted and whipping goodness.  I obsessed over this movie for quite a while after I first watched it.  sure knows her way into my pants.

 

Top Five Toys/Life/Whatever:

The AnacondaMy favorite toy of the year is the Tantus Anaconda.  It is a big ass dildo that fills me up before I go-go, but also serves as a beatin’ stick. It is made from 100% body friendly silicone, is pleasantly heavy, and has a handle for awesome solo and partner play.  This shit is no joke.
Dinah Shore 2012 – My one and only Dinah Shore experience was AMAZING!  There was lots of great energy all through the weekend, I got to talk lady porn with tons of hot lesbians in the sun, and got to do it along side J.D. Bauchery.  It was a great trip to the hot and relaxing land that is Palm Springs, California, but it also solidified my love of spreading the word of sex positive smut for women.  It is a trip that will forever stand out in my mind.
Kurt Lockwood’s Return to PornThis year the one and only Kurt Lockwood returned to the XXX screen and I am so thankful he did!  He has always been one of my top male performers and he is looking better than ever.  He is a total sweetheart on top of having a rocking body and beautiful cock, which is always nice.  He did a 20 questions interviewwith us and gave some of the best answers ever.  Kurt was great to correspond with and I am super excited to have him back!
Burlesque Hall of FameThis has nothing to do with smut peddling, but I am super proud of the burlesque side of my life.  This year we (The Peek-A-Boo Revue) won the title of Best Group at the 2012 Burlesque Hall of Fame Competition in Las Vegas.  We worked hard and brought our 9 piece band, 9 pairs of pastie covered tits, and performed our assed off.  It is definitely a major highlight in my year and life.
J.D. Bauchery This professional perv has seriously been key in an awesome year.  She is a great work-wife, friend, and part-time therapist.  She is smart, funny, and the best listener in the world.  Yeah, this is porn and we’re not supposed to get sappy, but oh well, it is happening.  As you may already know, I am leaving HotMovies4her to pursue my career in fitness.  I am excited, ready, and a little scared, but am going to miss the shit out of my sex-nerd partner in crime. For the next 10 days I’m going to soak as much as I can because my life won’t be the same without seeing her face most days of the week.

Next Up is J.D. Bauchery!

Top Five Movies:

– Finally, a trans-positive mainstream porn studio that brings us romantic, well-written movies featuring trans women! Woohoo!!!  All the performers are super hot and the sex is the best mix of passionate, tender and hardcore.  I seriously love this movie and can’t wait til we get more from !
– When you put the words “Belladonna” and “instructional” in the same sentence I get a little faint, due to the blood rushing out of my brain right into my bits. Yum.  And don’t go thinking that this is some dry how-to… seriously folks, it’s Bella-Fucking-Donna.  Need I say more?
: The amazing  returns with yet another feminist porn masterpiece – and it’s not just us that thinks that.  This erotic delicacy won Movie Of The Year at the 2012 Feminist Porn Awards (and I got to announce the award!!)!  Seriously people,  is bringing porn to a whole new level.
If you are looking for a standard old porno, this latest C. Batts FLY movie is not for you.  Less fuck flick and more artistic look at  as a whole person, including her delicious sexuality, this pick is something totally different and exciting, and I for one, am so excited about it!
 – By now you’ve probably guested that I am total sucker for queer porn.  And this debut from new studio Dolores Park Studios, is one of the best queer flicks I’ve seen all year.  Featuring some of my favorite performers (including Drew Deveaux, Syd Blakovich, and James Darling), this is the kind of movie I’d power up the old porn machine at home to watch… oh wait, I actually have…

Top Five Toys/Life/Whatever:

Veronica HarnessWhile there are a few femme dildo harnesses out there, this fantastic cloth harness by Velvet Nest is by far my favorite. It’s feminine and delicate enough for even the daintiest of femmes, and still stays on tight during rough, hardcore thrusting.  Don’t be fooled by the sweet little bow on the front – this amazing, washable harness will have your partner begging for mercy.  Read my review for more details.
Getting EngagedI haven’t really talked about it on the site, since it doesn’t have too much to do with porno, but I actually got engaged in 2012.  That’s right, my man gave me a ring and is going to make this pervy smut peddler an honest woman!  We aren’t tying the knot until 2014, so this upcoming year will be all about wedding planning. Yay! (Ps.  Isn’t this picture awesome?  My bestie, RJ, took it.)
Handmade Leather Restraints from Project TransAction: I’m pretty sure that I could just say the phrase “handmade periodic table restraints” and that would be enough for some nerdy pervs like me, but for the folks that don’t get hard from science, here are a few more details:  beautiful, supple leather paired with sturdy metal fasteners; no pinching or chafing; and they come in lots of different prints.  Seriously, these are amazing!
Redesign – Back in June, our humble little website got a seriously needed facelift with a whole new redesign.  Not only did we change the entire layout of the site, we are now able to post so many more pictures and have more space to write in!  Woohoo!  Plus we got the awesome mascot (in the picture to the left).  We totally love our new design and are so thrilled to be able to share it with all of our visitors.
Ginger Leigh – Over the past year, Ginger and I have become ridiculously close and possibly even a teeeeny bit co-dependent.  Since we sit about 3ft away from each other for 40 hours a week, it makes sense.  While we haven’t announced it, Ginger will be leavingus in the middle of January, so I thought it only fitting that she make my list of favorite things in 2012.  Oh man, will that one be missed!

Have a very happy new year!

Love,
Ginger and J.D.

April Flores World

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this movie. I mean really, is there any place I’d rather be more than April Flores’ World?  I think not. There’s been buzz about this C. Batts FLY movie for a while, but it’s only now that I finally have the time to sit down and give it the proper attention it deserves.  Oh April, I am so ready!

First things first, I need to stress that this movie is not your typical porno.  Not only is there very little sex happening, we get a chance to see  in a whole different light and experience her shining personality on screen.  As much as I love me some April Flores perversions (and I so, so do), I am so excited to see more than just her super hot body being featured.

Don’t get me wrong, I am overjoyed to watch her get busy, but I can turn on any porno with April and see her fucking.  This movie is so special because it’s something totally different.  In fact, from what I’ve heard from April and  (the director/April’s husband), this movie is a completely intentional stray from the norm, dedicated to offering April in a previously unseen way.  Maybe it’s because I watch so much porn, but I am honestly thrilled to see something different – especially from a duo as artistic and unexpected as April and Carlos. Onward to the action!

While I’m not really into wet and messy porn (I am a Virgo, after all), I totally love watching this opening scene with April and her friend Christa, as they get into an all out pie fight and hang out on a busy sidewalk covered in whipped cream.  The whole thing is very PG-13 on the surface, but oozes with sexual tension and sweet, girly giggles.  It’s sexy and fun in a way that doesn’t scream “fetish,” but definitely gets it across to those in the pervy know.  It may be a little analyze-y on my part, but I see that opening as a way to introduce that no one is taking themselves too porno seriously here, which I see as a good thing.  After all, there is a LOT of very earnest “sexy” porn out there… sometimes you need to find what makes you laugh to stand out.

About fifteen minutes into the movie, we get a first glimpse of April doing anything overtly sexual.  She poses for a picture, rubbing her tits and sucking on a dildo.  That only goes on for a few minutes before we head into a behind the scenes at April’s photo shoot with Bizarre Magazine.  The pictures from the shoot are actually really awesome, so it’s neat to see what happened back stage, including all the blooper-y stuff.  What can I say, I like the realness.

When I got to scene 3, I was actually pretty excited because if I’m not mistaken, this jerk off action was filmed during the Feminist Porn Awards trip of 2011 – and this was down the hall from my room.  And if this was when I’m thinking it was, I was actually getting ready to do an interview with April right afterwards.  Anyway, sorry for my trip down memory lane, back to the hotness.  Tina Horn shoots a scene of April, dressed in a lacy bra and fishnets give a super sexy dildo blowjob.  Yum.

Alright, I need to stop writing about every scene in detail, because this review is going to be nine pages long if I don’t.  What I really want to convey in this write-up is the tone of the movie, which is avant garde and highly erotic, while still being light and fun.  April gets a chance to really show her charming personality, which, for me, only enhances my hard on for her.  We should all consider ourselves lucky to have a chance to spend a little time getting to know this side of April Flores.  Two thumbs up from this peanut gallery.

Watch “” Now!

11-11-11: Our Top 11 Picks!

Happy 11-11-11!  I don’t know if there is really any significance to today’s date other than it just being awesome (and, of course, that it’s Veteran’s Day), but since it is,  we thought we’d celebrate with lists of our favorite 11 porns and performers!  Because why not use it as an excuse to talk about stuff we like?

First up, JD’s Top 11 Picks!

 


Next, we’ve got Ginger Leigh’s!

Happy 11-11-11 and have a great weekend.

Happy Birthday Drew DeVeaux!!

Today is the amazing Drew DeVeaux‘s birthday!! HotMoviesForHer wanted to be sure and wish her the Happiest Birthday out there and celebrate the day she escaped the womb with a bunch of pictures of her hotness.  I guess that’s really more of a gift for us, but hopefully all the wanking it results in will send a surge of sexy vibes right into Drew’s pretty, pink… birthday cake.

Top Five Tuesday – Staycation, All I Ever Wanted

This week my co-blogger Ginger Leigh is out on vacation.  Not only do I miss her (she sits within arm’s reach of my desk and puts up with my chatter), I am more than a little envious of her out of the office chill out time.  Yes, I’ve been out of the office as well recently, but nothing about that was relaxing – all work work work.  Hell, I don’t even need to go anywhere! I am totally fine with holing up in the house and having myself a much needed staycation!  While that’s not on the horizon, I still wanted to get my dreams going, so I’ve decided to grace y’all with my top five smutty picks for when I will lock the doors, turn off the phone and spend a few days staycationing and enjoying popsicles and porno!

Twisted Getaway: I seriously cannot BELIEVE that I haven’t watched this queer orgy extravaganza yet!  A 2011 Feminist Porn Awards Honorable Mention, this delicious fuckfest features a whole host of hotties that I’ve never seen naked before, including the film’s director Sophia St. James. Are you surprised this topped the list??
Official Revenge Of The Nerds Parody: Oh parodies, sometimes I love you, sometimes I loathe you.  This staycation, I’ve decided you are cool, especially when you are created by Philly guys Brian Bangs and Spock Buckton, who make hilarious movies.  Plus, how the hell could I pass up a Revenge Of The Nerds spoof?!?  I am only human, after all.
Eden: Sure, I might get a little jealous of those beautiful beaches and sparkling ocean (though not the getting fucked on them – I am anti sand sex), but at least I know that I won’t get  eaten by a dinosaur while laying in my bed!  You heard me, there is a DINO at the every end of the movie!!  Sorry for the spoiler, but you had to know to make sure you watch it!
Lesbian Love Vol. 1: Don’t think for one second that I’ve forgotten about my hardcore crush on Michelle Aston.  She is the insanely hot smart cookie that rules my porno dreams and it just so happens that this is my favorite scene featuring her.  Of course I am bringing it into the bed with me!
Artcore: Sometimes when you staycation, you want to keep your friends close, so why not just bring them along in super hot porno form?!? I love me some April Flores, Courtney Trouble and Drew Deveaux, both on screen and in the real world (sorry, I don’t know Kelly, Damali or Hoodman personally, though I do enjoy their screentime), and I think it’s super exciting that they are all fucking in one extra hot flick!  Woohoo! 

Here’s to wishing and hoping I get my relaxing day off to hide away and get my porno on!

Happy Vacationing, both here and far away!

xoxo
