Top Drawer Sex Toys In Porn

Njoy Eleven

I like porn. I like sex toys. I like sex toys in porn.

But what takes me right out of the moment is seeing porn stars jacking each other off with a nasty jelly dildo, a weak ass vibrator, or a floppy grocery store banana. It’s not sexy or cute. So when I happen upon a porno where the stars and studios have invested in some body safe, non-porous toys made from beautiful materials, I have to squee a little bit. I literally get turned on just reading about or shopping for top drawer sex toys, but seeing them put to good fucking use is enough to turn me into a little puddle of lustiness.

So dear readers, I scoured HotMoviesForHer to find the best scenes featuring some of my favorite top drawer sex toys in porn!

Crash Pad Series Episode 85 – Juliette March

Juliette March uses the Double Trouble sex toy in Crash Pad 85Juliette March (and her beautifully bruised ass!) stars in this solo scene from The Crash Pad. The Hitachi magic wand has been in pornos since dinosaurs roamed the earth, and features prominently here, but Juliette has tons of other goodies to play with. Besides clipping clothes pins to her perky nipples and swollen labia, she also slips an Njoy buttplug into her ass and fucks herself with a gorgeous black Double Trouble (named for director Courtney Trouble) from Fucking Sculptures! [UPDATE: Crash Pad reached out to inform us that Juliette was not actually using a piece from Fucking Sculptures. It was a toy from Juliette’s personal collection, and our best guess is that it is a Spectral from Good Vibrations.]

Crash Pad Series Episode 41 – Dylan Ryan & Jiz Lee

Crash Pad Series Episode 41 - Dylan Ryan & Jiz Lee use the njoy Eleven sex toy togetherNjoy makes another appearance at the Crash Pad in Episode 41. The amazing Jiz Lee pulls the massive Njoy Eleven from its leather purse, and Dylan Ryan gasps at its size (eleven inches!) weight (2.75 pounds!) and girth (two inch diameter at its thickest!!!) Jiz wastes no time putting the big end in Dylan’s pussy, and then gets on the smaller end for some double dil action. Dylan gasps, “This is amazing” over and over again, and I can’t help but believe her.

Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary 3

Dana Vespoli's Real Sex Diary 3Scene four of Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary 3 isn’t my favorite of the movie, but I did perk up a bit when Chanel Preston pulls out her impressive Njoy collection: the Pure Wand and the Eleven. Dana puts the Pure Wand in her ass and enjoys its fullness, and Chanel inserts the large end of the Eleven; they put their legs over their heads and chill with the toys inside of them. It’s not the best use of such great toys, but its always fun to see them pop up!

Fuckstyles Vol. 2: Dirty Fucks

Fuckstyles Vol. 2: Dirty FucksScene 7 stars trans* performers James Darling and Papi Coxxx, each sporting some impressively girthy strap-ons (unfortunately I can’t identify the brands by sights.) Later in the scene, James sucks on the head of the Njoy Eleven and rolls a condom onto it with his mouth. He bends over and offers his holes to Papi, who obligingly fucks him with the smaller, ribbed end, asking him if he prefers shorter or longer strokes. He moans with pleasure, enjoying its unyielding size and shouting fuckword after fuckword.

Lesbian Curves 3: Soft Girls & Strap Ons

Lesbian Curves 3: Soft Girls & Strap OnsThis is another flick from Trouble Films, and is probably the first time I ever saw an Njoy toy put to good use in a porno. Butchy Maxine Holloway dominates candy-colored BBW femme Kitty Stryker, gagging her with an o-ring and clipping clothespins to her pierced nipples. She fucks her with a pink Ola from Minna Life, a cool G-spotting silicone vibe with a squeezeable pad that allows you to control the vibrations. After Kitty’s warmed up by the Ola, Maxine fucks her with a strap-on (again, I unfortunately couldn’t identify what dildo or harness she used.) Once Kitty cums, it’s Maxine’s turn with the toys. Kitty kneels before her and fucks her brains out with the Pure Wand while Maxine buzzes her own clit with the old standby Hitachi. It’s a wonderfully memorable scene; I first watched it about a year and a half ago and never forgot about it.

Occupy My Ass

Occupy My AssThis anal extravaganza from director/star Bobbi Starr has a great variety of awesome toys, all the better for occupying the aforementioned asses. Bobbi uses the Tantus Ripple on Lily LaBeau in Scene 1, as well as some gorgeous glass toys, and maaaaybe the Ringo (a 5” plug from Tantus) as well. Dana DeArmond’s Njoy Eleven finds itself in Sarah Shevon’s ass in scene 3. On Disc 2, the brilliant Aiden Starr dominates Arabelle Raphael’s ass with some glass toys and some giant black monstrosity. When she pulls with a pretty purple Tantus Silk, it seems almost meek by comparison.

BONUS: Belladonna Sexual Explorer

Belladonna Sexual ExplorerSo the toys in question don’t actually get used here, but in scene 5 Dana DeArmond proudly shows off some of her favorites from her sex toy collection to the legendary Belladonna. Naturally there’s a Hitachi, but there’s also the massive Njoy Pure Plug 2.0 and Njoy Eleven. She also owns two Tantus dildos, including Hank.

Sex toys can be an iffy, unregulated business, and pretty much the only film media that they show up in is pornography. As an advocate for body safe toys made by companies focused on pleasure and sex positivity, it’s always welcome to see porn showing off toys from great companies like Njoy, Fucking Sculptures, Crystal Delights, and Tantus, to name a few.

Judy Hologram wants an Njoy Eleven so that she can keep it under her pillow and smash skulls if there’s ever a break-in. You can follow her on Twitter @JudyHologram and the rest of us @HotMoviesForHer.

Exclusive James Darling Interview

NAZ_0073A lot has changed since James Darling started performing in adult movies in 2009. At that point in time, there were less than a handful of studios producing porn with female-to-male trans performers, and even fewer were producing content with wide distribution. When thinking about the development of James’s career, it’s important to realize how big of a leap it must have taken him to leave the place he grew up and travel West to perform in porn. Not only has James become a celebrated performer, he has become known as a director, an advocate, and a stand-up guy in a business that is often polarizing. As a director, James has curated a bevy of performers who have worked together on several different projects, blurring the industry categories of straight, gay, or trans porn in order to make hot scenes with interesting characters who know how to have good sex on camera. James’s scenes are not easily pigeonholed, and that is what makes them so refreshing. As a viewer, you are not going to see the same tropes. You are going to see people enjoying themselves–really enjoying themselves–and this enthusiasm comes through in all of the scenes James has performed in and shot. We had the opportunity to ask James a few questions about his experience in the porn business, and what his life was like before he began filming.

HMFH: 2015 has been a big year for you. You were nominated for Transsexual Performer of the Year at the AVN Awards, and you were named as one of the TRANS 100. You have created a strong brand with your website FTMFucker.com, and you have been instrumental in changing the name of the Transgender Erotica Awards. These are huge accomplishments. Did you think you would be able to have this kind of impact? What goals did you have in mind when you started performing?

tumblr_n9y5zpRDB01qf66coo1_500James Darling: Thank you! 2015 has been a pretty big year for me. I never thought that I would impact people on this level by making porn, and I’m still pretty surprised that I have been able to go as far as I have with my work in the porn industry. When I started performing there were only three companies that would shoot a trans male performer and they were all independently produced companies based out of the Bay Area creating visibility for queer bodies and desire. I never thought it would be possible to make a career out of porn, and for the most part making a living performing is still something that’s not possible for most porn performers, especially performers who are trans men. I am very grateful and it’s been an amazing experience.

I’m very honored to be included on the Trans 100. There are so many trans people whose work I admire on that list and even more trans people doing important and necessary work who should also be recognized. I think sometimes lists and awards can create hierarchies and a sense of scarcity where it shouldn’t exist, especially when it comes to the work that trans people are doing to better our communities. That shouldn’t feel like a competition and I wish there was a better way to honor the work that people are doing. I do think it is important to see and celebrate trans people thriving and creating change, though, however big or small.

What were you doing on the day you decided to start working in the adult industry? What was your life like at that point in time?

At the time I was living in Georgia working for minimum wage at coffee shops and sleeping on friends’ couches. I had very little resources at the time and wanted more from my life. I knew that I would be able to get healthcare and be around more queer and trans people if I moved to the Bay Area, and I also knew that was where queer porn was being made. My friend showed me the original Crash Pad film by Shine Louise Houston and I thought it was really amazing to see queer people having the kind of sex that I was interested in, which was something that I didn’t see reflected much at the time in porn. Many people fantasize about being in porn, but I knew I wanted to make it a reality. So one day, I had enough of dreaming of a different life and I bought a ticket for a Greyhound bus. Two and half days later I was in San Francisco, and a month later I shot my first scene.

tboystgirls coverWhat lead you to start directing your own films? Do you have a specific audience in mind when you film?

I had very limited performing opportunities as a transsexual man and knew if I wanted to make more porn, I was going to have to do it myself. I most often shoot whatever I’m interested in at the time, but I have a pretty diverse audience. Some people really enjoy my scenes with men and some people really enjoy my scenes with women, and some people like all of it.  I just really enjoy working with people I’m attracted to and I like filming interesting dynamics and try to keep things pretty fun and casual.

When I first started performing, I had shot a number of amateur porn videos for myself and with friends, and was eventually invited to be a part of Shine Louise Houston’s Point of Contact project, where she gave flip cams and a small budget to a handful of performers to create their own porn. It was a really rewarding and inspiring experience that helped influence me into thinking more about directing. The biggest moment for me actually making my own films a reality was when I discussed creating a porn membership site about trans men with Courtney Trouble at the 2012 AVN Awards. They offered to help me build a site and get it off the ground. Once FTMFucker launched, I had free reign to create whatever filthy amazing smut I wanted, and to my surprise people really loved it and the site became very successful!

jamesdHow has performing influenced your directing style? Has directing influenced the way you perform?

Absolutely! I have gained a lot of respect for editors and directors. There is so much work that goes on behind the scenes of a porn shoot that I had no idea about as a performer, and a lot of stuff that would bore most porn fans to tears that they thankfully don’t have to witness. I also have gained a lot of insight into how to make sets better for the performers because I’ve been one for so long and know what it’s like and I want performers to be comfortable and have a good time on my sets. I wish sometimes that more directors and performers got to experience both sides of the camera, because I think it creates a more compassionate and informed experience for everyone involved.

 puck1How do you find performers, and do you have specific criteria when casting?

I mostly work with people who come to me, who like my films and want to be a part of them. I feel conflicted about poaching performers, especially if they have not shot porn before. I prefer to work with people who have given working in the adult industry some thought and are ok with the associated risks involved with performing in porn. Besides the obvious legal requirements, I mostly cast based on my budget, where the performers are based, their fantasies and interests, and the needs of whatever projects I’m currently working on at the time. But sometimes I meet someone special who really inspires me to try something new or different, and that’s always fun too.

jamesd2kissJRYou’ve mentioned in other interviews that you had a difficult time finding resources for the trans community in the South where you are from. Have you learned of any new resources that might be available in that area since you left? Is there a national program you might suggest that would help with outreach?

A lot has changed since I moved to the West Coast! Atlanta is definitely a hub for LGBT people in the south. A support group that made a huge difference for me when I lived there is Trans & Friends, which still meets at Charis Books & More, one of the last surviving feminist bookstores in the country. There is also Alphabet Soup, which is a support group for trans and gender variant people. Lost n Found  is a nonprofit and drop in center that serves LGBT homeless youth in Atlanta. There is also the Health Initiative which helps LGBTQ people access healthcare in Georgia.

What do you think media, mainstream and industry media, can do to help be allies for trans performers?

I think it’s imperative to have more trans people speaking for themselves and telling their own stories. I’d like to see more trans actors placed in trans roles in mainstream media. I’d also like to see more discussion of decriminalizing sex work when we are talking about how to make the world better for trans people because so many trans people are in the sex industry and I think decriminalization is vital towards creating a safer and more just world for trans people. It’s also important to listen to trans people, to honor the words we ask non-trans people to use for us and to respect our names and pronouns.

jace alternadudesOur fellow writer, Otter, would like to know what it was like to work with Jace from Alternadudes? Otter has a pretty big crush on him.

Jace is awesome! He’s a super sweet and handsome guy. We knew each other from when he lived in the Bay Area and I just happened to get booked with him the last time I shot for Alternadudes. He has a huge and truly magical cock and was able to cum twice in our scene! I’m always very impressed when I meet men who can cum more than once; even I find it challenging to have more than one orgasm and I don’t ejaculate! Working with performers who have not hooked up with a trans guy before can sometimes be challenging and it’s always great to work with someone who can be both professional and super sexy.

If you’re in a position when someone asks what you do for a living, and you don’t want to talk about porn, what’s your cover story?

I’ve been pretty lucky to rarely find myself in environments where it is not safe or OK for me to talk about my work in the adult industry, which I recognize is a huge privilege. I’m out to most people about what I do, but sometimes I tell people I am a video editor for experimental documentaries or shoot corporate training videos or some other more mundane sounding things. Speaking of disclosing my work to people, I talk about coming out to my dad in Jiz Lee’s new anthology Coming Out Like a Porn Star through ThreeL Media, it’s a really great resource for anyone looking for more stories about coming out as an adult performer to friends and family.


jrsqueeze RebekaSpank jacques jaq3 jacquiline1 jacq2 puck3 puck4 jamesd3 james4The screen shots pictured above, and here,  are
from the movie Tboys+TgirlsThe couples in this film are evenly matched, meaning their chemistry works and does not seem contrived in any way. Rebeka Refuse has this great attitude, a feisty persona, and Jacques LeFemme  is the extremely dapper escort who fills in for Rebeka’s no-show hook up. The second scene features Jacqueline Woods and Ramses Rodstein, and is especially erotic because of the genuine kissing, which is often missing in porn. These two really had a good time and it’s evident in the way they treat each other after they have both gotten off a few times. Chelsea Poe and Puck Goodfellow fuck for Jesus–you really have to watch this scene to understand. Finally, James and Venus Lux provide us with before and after interviews, sandwiching a sex scene that is as compelling as the previous scenes, yet this scene conveys more intimacy because of the interviews. There is a definite suspense due to James and Venus going from talking about wanting to work together and then straight into kissing, and feeling each other out sexually. James and Venus move from being colleagues to lovers as the viewer has the pleasure of watching their relationship transform  in real time. That’s pretty cool. Yes, this scenario has happened in other films, but because of who James and Venus are, two larger-than-life personalities, their scene is unique because they come together in an honest and sincere attempt to please one another. It’s not only good porn, but it’s an impressive display of respect and desire.

Come Crash at Crash Pad

Crash Pad series logoPornography is experiencing a renaissance in both mainstream and independent providers. From big-budget parodies to economically produced amateur content, the idea of what porn can be is expanding. One of the studios on the front line of this evolution in porn making is Pink and White Productions. Since 2005, Shine Louise Houston has created a venue for people to watch hot sex with a cast of inter-changing characters. The unique aspect of this series is that it is not just hot sex we are watching; we’re watching a sea change in the culture of porn.

The conversation about pornography is multifaceted and complex. We often hear people arguing against the exploitation of women, or the lack of representation of ethnicities or different types of bodies on screen. Those who think that porn is strictly the realm of fantasy often argue counter to these points. Fantasy can be a large part of why a viewer wants to watch porn, but not all fantasies are presented within mainstream films. The Crash Pad series is a good alternative to the cannon of porn because it offers viewers a chance to look at something besides the same tropes we always see: the pizza boy, plumber, and random gonzo setups that have predominated much of the major studios. Gonzo has its place, as well as the romantic or more sensual encounters, and the parodies and erotic BDSM features rival Hollywood in production value, but there is often a disconnect between the sex on screen and the sex viewers may have.

I’ve been a fan of porn since I was old enough to rent my own videos at the creepy shack off the highway in Georgia. I’ve always wanted to see something that represented me in real life more than the images I found in some of the previous mentioned material. I like a lot of diverse porn, and I see a ton of films due to my work at Hotmovies, but I never found something as personal to me as when I found the Crash Pad Series.

When I started watching Crash Pad episodes, I realized that I was witnessing a game changer in the industry. Body type, grooming style, and sexual politics have all been addressed in Crash Pad episodes. It’s not that performers are screaming out their ideologies during their orgasms, but the type of sex the performers engage in is informed, safe, and kinky. Crash Pad shows people owning their sexuality and exploring the types of play that is not often depicted in mainstream porn—and it’s hot.

CrashPad53I recently watched Crash Pad Episode 53 staring Syd Blakovich, Carson, and Mickey Mod. The playfulness and connection between these three was incredible. There was no power dynamic, and everyone seemed to know exactly how to make each other get off. It was three good-looking people getting together to have a good time (while sticking things in each other’s asses). In other episodes, Tobi Hill-Meyer, Jiz Lee, Drew Deveaux, and James Darling have some intense orgasms, and they all looked like they were having a ton of fun. There is a positivity that is obvious when you watch these scenes, and there is no doubt that everyone on set wants to be there. While these performers vary in ethnicities, age, body shape and gender, the enthusiasm for their partners in each of their performances makes for happy watching for any viewer.



Other notable episodes:

Crash Pad 64 porn filmEpisode 64: Chocolate Chip, Sadie Lune and Surgeon

Sadie gives sexual instruction to Surgeon and Chocolate Chip as she watches from afar. The dynamic, while leaning towards a D/s tone, is fun and playful. These three are incredibly sexy, and Sadie gives the viewer a very happy ending.





Crash Pad 05 queer porn filmEpisode 5: Rozen and Syd Blakovich (as Shawn)

These two have great chemistry and they are both amazing performers. There is realness and an eroticism that pops off the screen. Rozen looks great with a strap-on, and she knows how to use it too.


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!

Ginger and J.D.

Top Five Tuesday – Happy Anniversary J.D. Edition!

It’s J.D’s 5 year anniversary at HotMoviesForHer and I’m congratulating her by posting five 6 porno clips I know she’ll love!  You know you’re friends with someone when you know exactly what kind of dirty pervert they are and it isn’t from experience.  I’m totally lucky to have this awesome lady as my work wife and partner in smut peddling.  Thank you, porno, for bringing us together.  More importantly, congrats to J.D. Bauchery on 5 years at HM4Her.  She is the best sex educator and porn-for-women-expert I know!

And here she is, smiling on all of the free porno!

Seven Minutes In Heaven 2: Tender Hearted

With both the first and the third volumes of the  series firmly under my porno review belt, I figured that it was high time to spend a little time lovin’ on part two.  To give a quick recap of this set of sexy videos, they are super hot queer porno flicks by .  Picture that junior high game you used to play and add a triple X to the action.  These folks really are having seven minutes in heaven!  Yum!  Just as the old standard game is played, the group sits in a circle and spins a bottle to decide who is smoochin ‘on whom.  And by “smoochin’” we totally mean getting their fuck on, of course.

Spending time in heaven in this second volume are , , and  – each of which are performing in their second porn ever.   and don’t mention how many videos they’ve shot, but this is both , and ’s debut movies.  How exciting is that?  When I watch my favorite porn performers doing their thing, I don’t generally think about what their first porno shoot looked like, but seeing Akira (who is most definitely one of my favs) in this newbie light… well, it’s pretty hot.  But don’t think that I mean she is shy or acts all new about things – no sir, this girl is fierce from the first minute, and totally fucks like a champ in a bunch of scenes.  The first with her and Chocolate Chip is MEGA steamy.  Two gritty femmes getting it on is a personal fantasy, so really, it blew my mind in so many good ways.

Cyd, James and Red together is just an amazing gender blender of awesomeness with queerness reigning supreme.  I don’t really know what that means, but it is the best, full of laughter and held together with lube, spit and cum – just the way I like it!  I love when people’s gender identities are validated and respected, and they are fucked six ways til Sunday in whatever way that they enjoy pleasure.

I won’t go into every sexy combination they explore, but just know that they are all fucking hot!  I also really love that we don’t only get a quick intro to each person before the sex starts, there are lots of small interviews and asides throughout the movie, including a DIY dental dam tutorial from Puck Goodfellow.  The whole film is relaxed, fun and seriously hot without trying to fit into the ‘porno movie mold.’  Oh man do I love indie, queer, feminist porn!  Another gem from Courtney Trouble!

Oh, and warning if you are looking for  in this flick – they are just in it for a second, in a non-sex role!

Watch “” Now!

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.

Top Trans Tuesday: My Five Trans Porn Picks – Take 2!

This week, our Top Five Tuesday is all about trans folks…again!  That’s right, this very same week last year I rocked the Top Five Tuesday with the same topic.  And just as I was in 2011, this week I am headed back to the  Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, an amazing conference that focuses on the needs and issues of folks of transgender and gender variant experience.  And again I’m not only attending, but also presenting a workshop.  Last year I did a porn workshop with the fantastic Drew Deveaux, and this time around the education collaborative I co-run is presenting on relationship navigation and communication for partners of trans folks.  Very exciting.  Anyway, in honor of the conference, here is an updated Top Trans Tuesday for 2012!

Sophia St. James seriously is a saint for bringing us this awesomely kinky bed and breakfast getaway.  So much hot queer sex!!!  My favorite scene is the second, with  and Marxxx heading down to a basement place space decked out with all the swings and kinky accoutrement that any pervert would long for. Yum.  Maya gets into the swing and rocks a Hitachi on her bits while Marxxx has their way with her asshole.  If you are looking for some transman on transwoman action, definitely check this out!
What do you get when you mix a super duper sexy performer with the 2012 Feminist Porn Awards Heartthrob of the Year and a big beautiful bathroom?  A ridiculously hot two parter from our friends at .  It’s a good thing cis-gendered dude  and transman  (our aforementioned heartthrob) are getting it on in a bathtub, because man are those guys getting down and dirty!  And at less than 20 minutes long, you have time to press replay when it’s finished!
: At this point, I’ve been to Buck Angel‘s workshop of the same name twice because this is such a great movie.  But don’t bother believing me, just ask all the panel members of the Feminist Porn Awards – the people that awarded this movie Most Tantalizing Trans Film for 2012.  Yep, it’s that awesome.
: Those dudes over at  seriously know how to throw a party!  Lube wrestling, hot guys and lots of slippery – what else do you need, right?  This flick is a little older than some others on this list, but still totally delicious and full to the brim with trans-masculine foxes.
Doing It Ourselves – The Trans Women Porn Project: I know this movie was on last year’s list of top trans picks, but honestly, it’s so great that I have to continue it’s reign for another year.  I mean really, a bunch of transwomen realized that they didn’t see themselves represented in porn, so they decided to create their own and and make sure that they were visible in the porn world – how awesome is that?  And honestly, there aren’t that many porn movies with transwomen in them that give a real and accurate portrayal of their sexuality – or at least ones with out exploitative and offensive language.  Just sayin’.  Definitely watch this one!  Thanks Tobi Hill-Meyer!



2012 Feminist Porn Awards – Recap 3: The Main EVENT!

And we are BACK with Recap number three of my trip to Toronto for the 7th Annual Feminist Porn Awards.  This time we are ready to actually get to the action of the awards gala, and we hope you are ready too, because this is going to be a media heavy event.  I’m talking LOTS of pictures and videos crammed into this porn award extravaganza of a post.  So, if you’ve put your helmet on and packed your lunch, let’s get to it.

Just to get a feel for how crowded the standing-room-only event was, here is a shot of the crowd before the awards started.  All those empty seats were filled and then some!  Plus a balcony.  Yeah, it was awesome.

The awards kicked off with a fantastic dance troupe Ill Na Na doing a stellar performance.

I don’t even know how to explain it, other than amazingness.  I mean, look at that action shot! Love it!

The host Elvira Kurt took the stage to welcome us and introduce the first presenter, the fabulous Tristan Taormino!  There were so many awards to give that the gala that many of the presenters did double duty, doling out two awards.  Tristan started the party off announcing the award for Hottest Lesbian Vignette, which went to Jincey Lumpkin for her film Boutique.  Next up she announced the Sexiest Short movie, which was taken by Toronto local N. Maxwell Lander’s super hot flick, Emile, a beautiful movie of her girlfriend getting herself off and smoking cigarettes.  Really, really hot.

Check out N. Maxwell Lander accepting her butt plug and her girlfriend clapping off to the right (behind the ASL interpreter).  Congrats to you both!

Next jury members (the ones that chose the winners) Skye Blue and Joseph Pauls took the stage to announce Steamiest Straight Movie winner, The Female Voyer by Petra Joy (who was unfortunately not at the awards), and the Most Deliciously Diverse Cast winner, FUCKSTYLES (of the queer and famous) by Courtney Trouble and Tina Horn.

Congrats to Courtney, Tina and all the awesome queers involved!

Good For Her owner Carlyle Jensen and Professor Sheila Cavanagh (also on the jury) headed on stage next to present Most Arousing Adaptation and Smutty School Teacher Award For Sex Education, which went respectively to Nica Noelle’s Last Tango (wasn’t there to accept the award) and Tristan Taormino’s The Expert Guide To Advanced Anal Sex. I was lucky enough to catch Tristan accepting this awesome award for the second year in a row!  Woohoo sex education!!

Next on stage we got a special treat with a performance by the amazing Olive-or-Oliver, a transgender burlesque circus-y performer with a special attraction to all things shiny and glittery.  It was awesome!

After the sparkly Olive-or-Oliver left the stage, FPA organizers Carla Henderson and Lorraine Hewitt came up and gave nod to four amazing Honorable Mentions, including Seminal by Bren Ryder, TressPass by Bianca Stone and Ned Mayhem, Brunch Bunch by Ian Sparks (Woohoo!) and Switch: Hometown Hotties by Carrie Grey.  I haven’t seen all of these movies, but from the clips, holy hell do I need to!

Then we took a little intermission break to stretch our leggies and ring out our soaking panties…  And we are back!

Allyson Mitchell & Eden Baylee headed to the stage to present the honored websites of the night.  I’ll admit I have no recollection of who these two women were (sorry!), but the winners of the website honors went to CrashPadSeries.com (Shine Louise Houston), LilyCade.com (Lily Cade), DaneJones.com, and JizLee.com (Jiz Lee)!!

Lily accepted for her win.

While Jiz went on stage for both their own win, as well as to accept CrashPad’s butt plug as well.

All those sites are seriously deserving of honor and I am so glad they were given plugs!

Before we got to the next award, the audience were privy to a special surprise treat… Buck Angel giving us a super steamy striptease!  I’m so happy I got this on film (minus a few seconds because someone needed to move in front of the camera to sit down – seriously people, could you not see I was filming something important?!? Animals!)

Holy crap was it awesome!  Who doesn’t love a sexy surprise like that?!  Especially the part where he doused himself in lube! Woah!

Fleshbot’s Lux Alptraum hit the lube-filled stage next, presenting Hottest Kink Movie to Julie Simone’s Vicious Strap-On Bitches (no Julie Simone to accept, booo) and Hottest Dyke Film to Hella Brown: Real Sex In The City by Nenna!!!  I was super disappointed to not get a good picture or video of her accepting the award, because Neena is seriously awesome.  Congrats!!

I know I have the order of the evening a little mixed up, but I will say that CoCo La Creme took to the stage next, where she was looking for some hot stuff, baby, and looking to give us a balloon-filled action.

By the end, all those balloons were popped and we definitely found that hot stuff that CoCo was seeking.  Yum, right?

All throughout the evening, co-host Ryan G. Hinds would pop up on the big screen and do interviews with performers and directors.  He met up for a super cute rendezvous with Jiz Lee and I just had to share the video.

Seriously sexy Cliks front man Lucas Silveira headed to the podium to present Orgasmic Original Concept to the amazing Cheryl Dunye for her film Mommy Is Coming (which I cannot wait to watch in entirety!!) and Most Tantalizing Trans Film to the man of the hour (how could he not be with that strip tease?), Buck Angel for Sexing The Transman XXX!

Congrats to Buck – as well as James Darling, who was in the movie, and Lucas Silveira, who was in the non-XXX version.

Next up 2011 Heartthrob of the Year Drew DeVeaux took the stage to pass her crown to the this year’s winner… James Darling!!!

Woohoo!  Congrats James Darling!  That role is so fitting.

Ill Na Na returned to the stage for another amazing performance before the Good For Her folks came up to thank the organizers, volunteer and everyone involved in the production of the awards weekend.  And then it was time for Movie Of The Year.

Yep, that’s when your friendly neighborhood porn blogger took to the stage to present.

Thanks to my party buddy Jess for taking pictures while I was doing my thing.  I don’t love being up on stage in front of tons of folks, so I said my thing and announced the Movie Of The Year Cabaret Desire by Erika Lust!!!

Major congrats to Erika Lust for this totally deserved win!!  And with that, the awards gala transformed into a rockin’ dance party! And I was able to get some exciting pictures of folks with their awards.

Erika Lust – Movie Of The Year!

Erika and N. Maxwell Lander – Sexiest Short.

Dylan Ryan, Nenna (Hottest Dyke Film) and Drew DeVeaux.

I also had the great fortune of slipping into a stall in the bathroom with Dylan Ryan and James Darling to have a little chat after the awards.  Gotta love folks who will pack into a bathroom stall with me to do an interview.

After we emerged from the bathroom, I headed over to the photo wall thing to grab a few pictures.

One with Tristan Taormino and Buck Angel.

And one with Buck Angel and myself!

And that, my friends is the end!  That you for taking this crazy trip with me!  And if you are interested in seeing some real photos from the evening, take a look at the Feminist Porn Award’s facebook, where there are some amazing shots!

Hope you enjoyed the recaps!  Thank you Good For Her! We can’t wait til 2013!!


Feminist Porn Awards – Recap 2: Pre-Awards Party!

Welcome back for recap two of my whirlwind trip to Toronto for the 7th Annual Feminist Porn Awards!  When we left off on Recap 1, we were just getting into Friday, the day of the awards gala.  I won’t bore you with the details of my day, which just involved hanging around and getting ready for the evening really.

A few weeks back, the folks who put the awards on asked me if I was interested in getting my hair and makeup done for the show, since I was presenting an award. If you know me at all, you know how excited I was by the prospect of actually looking put together. So, I started off the evening doing that before getting down and dirty into the VIP pre-awards party and the ceremony.

Not bad, if I do say so myself.

Anyway, the pre-awards party was a time where stars and porno folks in town for the FPAs could meet with the press and photographers to chat about their work.  Being the high-tech photog that I am, I took my fancy camera (cough, cough, iPhone) and got a few snaps of some of the awesome people getting ready for the awards.

First up was Tristan Taormino and Buck Angel, who both had movies up for awards this year.

 Also up for awards was Lily Cade, who was more than happy to give me both front and back access for photos.

Why, hello nice ass in a well tailored suit.  It’s so nice to meet you.  I did get a photo of Lily’s beautiful date, performer Ela Darling, but my phone took such washed out pictures with the flash on, that I can’t put those pictures up here in good conscience.

I was happy really that this photo I got of director Erika Lust came out alright, because she is seriously adorable, along with being the sweetest.

I also really love this next picture because it illustrates just how vibrant and fun Erika Lust is, and I’m sure you know how hard it is to capture that in picture form. Iphone did me well here.

Alright, a few more before we get into the actual awards.  This is going to be a long post, so I hope you packed some lube, and maybe a snack.

Next up James Darling and Tina Horn posed for my camera and James let me go on about how much I enjoy and appreciate his work.

I also got a chance to grab a picture of Arabelle Raphael and Courtney Trouble before we started toward our seats for the awards to begin.

As the theater began filling up, the main screen above the stage projected the #FPA2012 Twitter feed going on. It was really fun to watch all of the folks that were there, and the folks watching the livefeed of the awards, all talking about what was going on there.

I tweeted a couple of times just to see my tweets up on the screen.  What, you know everyone else was doing the exact same thing.

And finally, I grabbed Alison Lee (who used to put the awards together) and Dylan Ryan for a quick picture, just as the awards we about to get underway.

Ok!  And now for the awards!!!  In Recap 3!
