Angie Rowntree Shares Tips to a Successful Relationship for Couples Appreciation Month

Angie and Colin RowntreeApril is National Couples Appreciation month, which was “founded by Blissful Escapes ‘to encourage couples to do something special to re-enforce and celebrate their relationship.’” Rather than spending money on fleeting items like cards or flowers, the spirit of National Couples Month proffers that it’s really the little things that can show your loved one exactly how much you care. By telling them you love them for no reason at all, cooking “them dinner just because it’s Wednesday,” or giving them a passionate kiss out of the blue, couples can reconnect and revitalize their relationship without the need for expensive and unnecessary grand gestures.

In honor of National Couples Month, HotMoviesForHer reached out to Angie Rowntree, sex-positive pornographer, founder of Sssh.com, the oldest porn site ever created specifically for women, and one-half of Angie and Colin Rowntree, one of the most celebrated and successful couples in the adult industry.Angie Rowntree filming

Together since the early 1990s, and married 22 years, these industry powerhouses who not only make their marriage work, but have also mastered the rare ability of cohesively working together as well. In an industry where marriages are often fleeting, these two have provided a shining image for how to make a marriage work, no matter what the world around them might throw their way.

We asked Angie to give us some insight into how they keep their romance alive as they navigate the porn industry as a couple and a team.  Here’s what she shared with us!

“Our marriage is strong for the same reasons a lot of lasting marriages are strong; there’s a high degree of shared interests, mutual respect and profound trust and most importantly COMMUNICATION. We’re very comfortable with each other, which enables us to be very open, very frank, even when we disagree – which happens plenty, believe me.

I believe the fact we both work in the adult industry helps a lot. It means we have a shared understanding, and we don’t have to wonder or guess at what each other’s professional lives are like, because we already know. While there are huge differences between the content each of us produces, Colin and I appreciate each other’s perspective and method.

More important than any of the above is love, of course. I still get a huge smile on my face every time I think about when we first met, when I was immediately charmed by Colin and there was this instant connection. All these years later, I still feel that connection every day. I’m not sure I can explain it, exactly – and I’m not sure I’d want to. A little mystery can go a long way in sustaining passion, after all.”

Now that gives all of us here at HotMoviesForHer some serious #RelationshipGoals!

“Women in Porn” Panel Discussion

Vicky Vette

This coming Tuesday, May 12 at 3pm EST/12pm PDT, Mindbrowse.com will host a live broadcast produced by Sssh.com with the theme “Women in Porn.” This event will feature guest speakers Vicky Vette, Julia Ann, and Gauge, as well as Kelly Holland, the Managing Director of Penthouse. The event will be moderated by Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, and live tweeted by @ shhhforwomen. Audience participation will be made possible by tweeting questions with the hashtag #SexTalkTuesday.

Mindbrowse is a platform for performers, fans, and producers of porn to discuss the issues that concern the adult industry. This event will focus on the aspect of discrimination against female performers, and the social phenomena of shaming that happens when performers are “outed.” Vette, Julia Ann, and Gauge will discuss their personal experiences with discrimination, and will be available to answer questions from viewers.

Sex Talk Tuesday is a weekly Twitter chat focusing on topics pertaining to education and discussion of adult sexual health. Issues like BDSM, swinging, BBW sex, and gender roles are discussed with care and humor by participants like Cooper Beckett, Cindy Gallop, and Ryan Driller. This Tuesday’s session was inspired by Vette, who approached the producers of Mindbrowse about the topic of discrimination after her attendance at the XBIZ 360 panel “Women in Porn-Shattering the Myths,” which featured attorney Karen Tynan, director Courtney Trouble, writer Elle Chase, and Kelly Holland. The XBIZ panel focused on a variety of subjects pertaining to the effects of legislation in the United Sates and the United Kingdom, as well as the effects of legislation on the marginalization of viewer’s preferences and sexual health. Many of the panelists commented on the current U.K. ban on spanking as outdated and repressive. Holland articulated a double-standard in laws regulating female objectification as an assumption that women do not like sex, and therefore domestic spanking or any rough play would be problematic for all viewers.

This coming Tuesday’s talk will be informed by the XBIZ 360 event, and will offer a unique perspective on these assumptions about women and their sexual desires, and their participation as porn consumers and producers. Both Vette and Julia Ann are currently working as performers, and Gauge returned to performing in 2013 after an 8 year hiatus.

May is National Masturbation Month

To celebrate Masturbation Month, Sssh and The Screaming O have teamed up to observe National Masturbation Month with a giveaway of Screaming O Bullet Vibes for the first 250 lucky new Sssh.com members who sign up during the month of May.

 

 

By Fiona Wilde.  

It’s National Masturbation Month, and depending on your viewpoint this is an idea that is either a stroke of genius or rubs you the wrong way.

I personally think it’s brilliant, because Costco sells batteries in bulk and some nights it feels just plain wrong to neglect the imaginary affair I’m having with Benedict Cumberbatch to fuck a real person.

Of course not everyone agrees with my positive view of being touchy-feely with one’s naughty bits. A month devoted to masturbation has caused much hand-wringing among conservative types, which is a damn shame because if they just moved those wringing hands between their legs they’d finally understand what all the fuss is about.

But that’s unlikely to happen, and maybe they are seriously concerned about where masturbation can lead. Blindness, madness, hairy palms, acne and reduced sperm count are among the things the religious types warn about. They don’t mention carpal tunnels syndrome, so I’m throwing that in there.

But it’s not even the physical risks that are the anti-wanking crowd finds most egregious. It’s the spiritual risks. According to one Christian website, the danger isn’t so much in the stroking and probing, but what’s behind it. Apparently, jacking off or petting your kitty is probably OK if you’re thinking about your spouse. It’s only a sin if you’re thinking about someone else.

Of course, this means I’m going to hell. But on the upside I’ll be able to get PeeWee Herman’s autograph. And I’ll be able to meet William Blakely, the Tennessee guy who was in the news last month for masturbating out of his car window while driving 90 mph. And the best part? Blakely was reported to have had his penis out the window while doing this. Now I don’t know how men are built in Tennessee, but I do know if a guy can get his dick out of a car window while keeping his foot on the gas that’s worth seeing, even if it means risking a high speed load to the face as he whizzes by.

If this behavior keeps up by men, here is one possible result shown in a French parody short film….

A few months back I wrote a column on Mormons, a group that’s pretty freaked out by masturbation no matter who you’re thinking about. One of their pamphlets recommends taking a Bible or Book of Mormon to bed and holding it really, really tight if you feel the urge to masturbate. Other handy tips included exercising and hanging around with other people in denial about their sexual frustrations.

Another tip I read today suggests thinking unsexy thoughts. So I’m going to try it – live – right now as I write. First I’m going to think of a guy I really want to fuck.

OK. And now I’m thinking unsexy thoughts.

Clowns, math, Ayn Rand, that time I broke my leg, snow peas, parallel parking, cankles, NASCAR…

Nope. Not working.

Apparently more extreme measures are required, and online I perfectly found awful pictures of chastity belts and penile devices that I will not share with you because, frankly, they’re just depressing.

Maybe I’ll just have a box of Graham crackers. It’s a little known fact that the inventor Sylvester Graham was of the opinion that a bland diet would curb lustful thoughts. And so he created a cracker made just for that purpose. But judging by the success of S’Mores and the popularity of fucking around campfires, he called that one all wrong.

Bottom line: Sex is healthy, whether it’s with yourself, yourself and your imaginary friend or yourself and someone else. Hell, throw in your imaginary friend and you can finally have that three-way you always wanted.

If that’s not a reason to celebrate I don’t know what is.

Happy Masturbation Month, everybody!
