Writers Roundup: Best of 2016

At the end of each calendar year, the adult industry typically reflects on the past year’s releases in the form of award nominations. At HotMoviesForHer, we consider ourselves the experts of all things XXX, and with our unique and differing perspectives on the content we see each day, the staff writers decided to nominate our own personal choices for some already-established award categories, and some categories that we came up with ourselves. Take a look below to see what we’ve hand-selected as the best of XXX in 2016.

@JudyHologram

abelladanger2016Female Performer of the Year: Abella Danger and Sara Luvv

It’s a toss up between Abella Danger and Sara Luvv. They’re both great performers who are tons of fun to watch, and they consistently pick great projects to work on.

Male Performer of the Year: Manuel Ferrara

I know he’s already won like 1000 times, but I’ve gotta stick with Manuel Ferrara. The man could generate sexual chemistry with a chia pet. Her scene with Abella Danger in her Hard X showcase, Abella, was truly phenomenal.

Best New Starlet: Kira Noirkiranoir2016

Kira Noir really stood out for me this year. She has a look that’s really hard to find in this industry, and she carries herself with a ton of maturity. I consistently have to remind myself that she really is a newbie and that she’s not an industry veteran.

cindyqueenofhell2016Trans Performer of the Year: River Stark

I have to go with River Stark for her performance in Transition. It was a powerful, semi-autobiographic performance that I think is really helping to change the landscape of trans-porn.

Best Feature Movie: Cindy Queen of Hell

I love seeing big passion project from people who really love their work. The first scene with Joanna Angel, Xander Corvus, and Small Hands is particularly awesome.

Best Gonzo Movie: Girl/Boy 2

Girl/Boy 2 from Dana Vespoli just really blew me away. A very close second would be Abella, the Abella Danger showcase from Hard X.

girlboy212016girlboy222016girlboy232016girlboy242016

Best Activist/Advocate: Siouxsie Q and Julia Ann

Siouxsie Q and Julia Ann  did stellar work on the No On Prop 60 campaign, and they really deserve more gratitude than we could ever give them!

Best Team Effort: Stoya and Kayden Kross

Stoya and Kayden Kross’s Trenchcoat X is all the gloriously arty smut that I’ve ever dreamed of, resulting in the candy colored Brett Rossi is Delicious!

Best Indie Movie: Glitter and Gold

These two really go hand in hand, so I’m going to pick 2 and go with Glitter and Gold.

@AndiScribe

Female Performer of the Year: Samantha Bentleysamanthabentley2016

Samantha has performed in several films this year, but I am most fond of her crazy character in Hard in Love I & II. She’s been writing a lot about the industry for mainstream publications, which has helped to give a non-porn audience an honest and intelligent look at the work she does.

Male Performer of the Year: Jean Val Jean

Jean Val Jean has been around for awhile, but recently he has made a huge comeback with Erotica X and Tushy scenes. Also, his scene with Joanna Angel in Dominantly Submissive was excellent.

christianacinn2016Best New Starlet: Christiana Cinn

Christiana Cinn started in late 2015, and she already has over 30 scenes to her credit with some of the biggest studios in the game.  She has a ton of creative vision and talent, and I hope to see much more of her next year. Although, I think many people will say Melissa Moore may get the nod this year due to her scary similarity to last year’s Female Performer of the Year, Riley Reid.

Trans Performer of the Year: Michelle Austin

Michelle Austin has worked her butt off this year as a performer, director, and studio owner.  She has also been forthcoming with her own work on her body, mind, and soul through social media and advocacy.

Best Feature Movie: Sugar Babies

Sugar Babies from Pretty Dirty studio. I am not writing any spoilers, but this was messed up and super hot. Best movie of the year, if you’re into dark and inappropriate relationships, which is what makes this studio really great.

Best Gonzo Movie: Anal Encores

Anal Encores from Mike Adriano Media. Newcomer Zelda Morrison’s scene with Mike is not to be missed.

analencores42016analencores32016analencores22016analencores12016

Best Activist/Advocate: Chanel Preston

It was great to see the industry come together to fight Prop 60, and there are a lot of people that were very vocal, reached out to fans and mainstream media, and really educated the masses on the issues. Chanel Preston held APAC together when it could have fallen apart. She pushed through with her team, and continued to expand membership and outreach.

Best Team Effort: Dee Severe and Jimmy Broadway

Dee Severe and Jimmy Broadway for Severe Sex films. This husband and wife team work with extremely talented performers, they were instrumental in the fight against Prop 60, they genuinely want the industry and everyone in it to be informed, safe, and have a good time, and their scenes always make me feel like they are having the most fun out of anyone in the biz.

Best Indie Movie: Femdom Fatale 5

Julie Simone‘s Femdom Fatale 5  because I need more unicorn anal play in my life!

@ExplicitBridget

Female Performer of the Year: Sara Luvvsaraluvv2016

For me, 2016 was the year of Sara Luvv. Everywhere I seemed to look, Sara dominated the major releases from virtually every studio out there. One of the biggest releases of the year, Babysitting the Baumgartners, showcased Sara’s ability to deliver incredible performances for both lesbian and straight scenes. She’s a truly dynamic star that continues to rise through the ranks of the industry into fan-favorite status.

Male Performer of the Year: Mick Blue

He’s won the title in years past, but Mick Blue continues to lead the male performer pack in my opinion. With his studio BAM Visions as a standout new brand for Evil Angel and his work with every other major studio under the sun, watching a Mick Blue scene was almost unavoidable this year, not that anyone would want to avoid the raunchy Austrian sweetheart!

lyralaw2016Best New Starlet: Lyra Law

We were introduced to the stunning Lyra Law in 2016, and I couldn’t have been more mesmerized by her performances. Whether performing as a Domme or as your more typical porn video-vixen, Lyra put her own sexy spin on being a California beachy blonde. Her scenes alongside real-life beau Michael Vegas were especially titillating for me because I could tell their chemistry was 100% authentic.

Trans Performer of the Year: Nina Lawless

I saw a whole lot of Nina Lawless this year, and I liked it! The super-fit Mexican hottie made waves working with almost every trans-friendly studio in the industry this year. Not only is her work ethic impressive, but so too is her range. Nina can be a sultry scene partner when she tops or bottoms, but she can also be a merciless Dominatrix during her kinkier shoots.

Best Feature Movie: Little Red – A Lesbian Fairytalelittlered2016

Girlsway is constantly killing it with their feature releases, but Little Red really took the cake for me this year. Inspired by the classic fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood, Little Red somehow turned a children’s classic into a raunchy lesbian romp that kept pretty true to the plot of the original story… as much as was possible without involving an actual wolf.

Best Gonzo Movie: Dirty Talk 3

Manuel Ferrara‘s series Dirty Talk is a pretty sensual take on the POV genre, and for that reason alone I love it. With each starlet beginning their scene by giving the camera “bedroom eyes” while telling Manuel exactly what they want to do to him, it’s a pretty intimate and sexy moment. This series is unique and doesn’t get enough credit in my opinion, but the third installment is especially my favorite just because some of my favorite stars are in it: August Ames, Abella Danger, Karlee Grey, and Briana Banks! Doesn’t get hotter than that.

dirtytalk312016dirtytalk332016dirtytalk322016

Best Activist/Advocate: Andre Shakti

It’s one thing to work in the adult industry and face all of society’s unwanted morality and criticism for your career choice, but it’s quite another to face all of that unwanted backlash and use your voice to fight for your rights as a sex worker. This year, Andre Shakti stood up for her and her fellow sex workers’ rights writing for multiple mainstream publications like Cosmopolitan and VICE, and also had the courage to pose for the cover of The New York Times Magazine for a piece debating whether or not sex work should remain 2016-12-20_14-03-47criminalized. Through her myriad of thoughtful pieces, Andre Shakti exposes the reality of working as a queer sex worker in a climate that still views her lifestyle as overwhelmingly taboo.

Best Team Effort: Anikka Albrite & Mick Blue

I love a good power couple, and Anikka and Mick are probably the closest thing to Beyonce and Jay Z that the adult industry is going to get. Between managing their new Evil Angel studio, BAM Visions, and continuing to churn out scorching scene-after-scene for every other popular studio in existence, Anikka and Mick keep themselves busy in the best way possible: doing what they love!

Best Indie Movie: FUCK THEM ALL

From indie porn studio Bleu Productions, FUCK THEM ALL really struck me as a fun and unique take on queer porn. Starring FTM trans performer Kay Garnellen, Kay travels through dark, erotic fantasies that ultimately lead him to an explosive gender-fluid orgy that is not to be missed!

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!).

Hotmoviesforher.com 2013 FPA Banner

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.

The winners of the 2013 Feminist Porn Awards are as follows:

Vicious Strap On Bitches

I wasn’t going to review this movie at first because of the word “bitch” in the title.  Then I Vicious Strap On Bitchesrealized you were all big kids and could handle it.  I realized you would get the context… that when badass dominatrix Julie Simone makes a movie called Vicious Strap On Bitches, it is going to feature some high quality strap on fucking and the word is meant in the best possible way.  Plus, Julie is getting inducted into the AVN Hall Of Fame in 2013.  She is pretty much amazing.

This flick is a compilation featuring a few ladies that know their way around a silicone dick, but I’m going to focus on Julie Simone for this review.  In scene 3 Julie makes Ashley Renee her little pet and she ravages her latex covered body, save for her holes, always focusing on filling her pussy.  The image is visually stunning as Ashley is tangled up in the rope as opposed to tied up.  Miss Simone works her cock like the pro that she is, pumping Ashley’s puss in a variety of positions.

In scene 5 we get the pleasure of watching Julie team up with Summer Cummings to bang their hood-only wearing Ariel X.  Both doms keep the smoking going as they fill Ariel’s wet pussy and mouth with their wangs.

I could go on, but you should watch this free clip instead.

Julie Simone Interview On FetishMovies.com

Our kinky sister-site FetishMovies.com just posted an awesome interview with the amazing Julie Simone and we knew we just had to post it here as well.  I mean really, Julie Simone is one bad-ass lady.  Not only is she an awesome pro-Domme and lifestyle fetish lady (meaning she is a kinkster on and off the screen), Simone is an award-winning rigger (knotting and tying ropes during bondage), porn performer, director and editor – and even sometimes camerawoman.  I know, right?  Her fingers are in so many dirty, dirty pies.

Anyway, we had the great fortune to score an interview with Miss Simone last fall, and since Ginger Leigh is the one who put together the interview for FetishMovies, we talked about the questions beforehand and decided not to ask the same 20 we ask on this site, so that we could pair the interviews up to make one giant Julie Simone interview explosion.  Pretty clever, huh?

So, check out what Julie Simone had to say to us, then scurry over to FetishMovies to read more!

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!!

Babes In Bondage 4

Last week the 2012 Feminist Porn Awards nominees were announced and a bunch of seriously awesome movies made the cut.  Nice work, perverts!  While I’ve had the great honor of reviewing some of the titles, there were a few that we have on the site that I never got a chance to check out.  I figured that now is the perfect time to send a little review love to some of our FPA hopefuls!  Today we are spending some time with Babes In Bondage 4, a Julie Simone flick featuring lots of ladies bound, gagged and ready for action.  The big difference here, though, is that these women are tied down and left to hang out.  No sexy activity needed to make this movie hot – just ladies in all states of undress, rope rigged and ready for our viewing pleasure!

There is something seriously sexy about solo bondage play.  While it doesn’t invoke the usual porno formula of stimulation until orgasm, the stark difference makes it extra hot in my mind.  Whether the ladies are tied with rope, rolled in duct tape, gagged with an apparatus that has a toilet brush attached (how else would the slave clean the toilet??), or rigged high above the floor, they are all having the time of their lives.  Who needs climax when you can barely move your (consensually) trapped body?

Of course since I am a sex educator through and through, I need to add this piece in. While most of these women seem to be bound and all alone, in fact there is someone with these ladies at all times (you know, behind the camera).  I personally would not suggest getting yourself into a bondage situation you may not be able to get out of without anyone else around.  Sounds like it could end badly.  Heck, even if you know you could easily escape, still let someone know what’s going on.  The last thing I want is someone really getting hurt from something that is supposed to be sexy fun.

All in all, I love this tied up party for one.  Even with each scene offering up a similar premise, the variations were just enough to keep my attention for the whole 90 minutes.  Nice work, Ms. Simone.   I wish you luck in Toronto (and hope to God that you are there and I get to meet you!).

Watch “Babes In Bondage 4” Now!

2012 Feminist Porn Award Nominees Announced!

It’s that time of year again!  The Feminist Porn Awards are right around the corner and this year’s nominees have just been announced.

What?  You say you’ve never heard of the Feminist Porn Awards?!  Well, sit down and let me school you before we bust out the noms.  The Feminist Porn Awards (or FPAs) is an annual event that showcases the best of the best in porn made for and by forward-thinking feminist folks of all genders (though the movies have to have a woman’s hand in the production, writing, directing, etc.). The FPAs are the do all and say all when it comes to porn created specifically with women in mind.HotMoviesforHer is so thrilled to be sponsoring the awards again this year!  We are literally counting the days to the ceremony!  That’s right, I will be at the awards in Toronto, April 19th & 20th, representing HM4Her!

Top Five Tuesday – 2012 AVN Nominees!

Surprise! In honor of the upcoming 2012 AVN Awards, this week’s Top Five Tuesday is packed full of the noms that I love. Yes, there are more of you that I want to take home and keep for myself, but I am limited to 5 so work with me. I ‘m not going to yammer on here. Just check out my picks and feel free to let me know who you love!

Belladonna: Sexual ExplorerAs soon as I layed my eyes on this title, it was my pick for Best All-Girl Group Scene.  I reviewed it not too long ago and it quickly made it’s way to my must-watch-again (and again and again) list.  There is definitely chemistry between these ladies and you can tell they are enjoying themselves and each other the way they would if the cameras weren’t rolling.  Besides, it’s a Belladonna porno.  You can’t go wrong.
Bobbi Starr Bobbi StarrI am LOVING all of the movies coming from Bobbi Starr Productions.  I have always admired this lady for her porno performing skills, but there is no doubt the she deserves to be in the running for  Best Director – Non Feature.  She is pervy and smart.  It is a match made in my porno heaven.  All of her work is stellar, but she happens to be nominated for Shut Up and Fuck.  Watch it!
Julie Simone Is A Dominatrix Julie Simone Is A DominatrixWe totally fell in lust with Julie after her 20 questions interview.  She is a total pro in the BDSM world and damn does she know how to put her pets through the ringer.  Holy men in bras, this flick is hot!  It is up for Best BDSM Release.
Andy San Dimas Andy San Dimas – Look, she’s just hot.  Plus she is down for getting it on all the time.  I never second guess whether or not she likes her job.  She is a professional, but definitely puts her whole self into her pornos.  I have mad respect for her and I totally have a crush on her.  Andy is nominated for Best Actress.
Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex 3: Adrianna's Dangerous Mind Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex 3: Adrianna’s Dangerous MindIf there is one movie on the list that I not only love watching, but also hold near and dear to my heart, it would be this one.  J.D. and I reviewed this porno scene by scene.  I feel like I spent quality time with it, got to know it, had it over for coffee, etc.  Rough Sex 3 is over the top fantastic.  Watching rough sex scenes spun from the mind of the beautiful and talented Adrianna Nicole is empowering and a total turn on.  Nominated for Best Group Scene, this is one movie that will always and forever remain on my “best of” list.  P.S. Tristan Taormino is  the bomb.  Just sayin’.

Top Five Tuesday: New Year’s Resolutions… Pornified!

It’s that time of year when everyone makes promises to themselves in hopes of becoming a better them. You’ve probably seen plenty of New Year’s Resolution lists, but have you seen one with corresponding pornos to help you out along the way? Below are some common resolutions with their corresponding dirty movies to help get the ball rolling on making this year awesome. Or at least making an attempt at it!

Naked Workout Workout More: We all want to work out more, especially after enjoying all of the treats and adult beverages that the holidays lend themselves to.  If you’re like me, you’re spent some quality time on the couch and it’s about time to get moving!  Sure, sometimes it can be hard to get inspired to work out, but I’m thinking a Naked Workout just might be the push you need!
Smoking Interviews 3 Quit Smoking: This was definitely one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done in my life, but I am so glad I did!  I’m not saying that Julie Simone’s Smoking Interviews 3 will help you kick the habbit, but it sure is the next best thing to inhaling when you’re really jonesing for one!
This Ain't Happy Days XXX Be Happier:  There is something to be said for enjoying life a little more.  Stop, smell the roses and watch some porn.  Live the life you love, etc.  The folks in This Ain’t Happy Days XXX seem to it down.
European Vacation Travel: I can never really do enough of this.  I would have loved to have followed Joanna Angel and James Deen on their European Vacation.  They did have a few snafus along the way, but they damn sure had some amazing sex!
 Organize For Action Get Organized: I know I could use a little organization in my life!  I always say I’m messy because I’m creative, but I’m thinking it’s high time to get things in order.  Or I could watch Organize For Action in all of it’s old school goodness.  I know this is a different type of ”organize”, but I’m working with what I got here!

Best of luck and happy New Year!
