GOOD VIBRATIONS' SISTER COMPANY, GOOD RELEASING, NOMINATED FOR TEN FEMINIST PORN AWARDS IN TORONTO
New Line of Erotic Films Receives Highest Honors from Sex-Positive Porn Awards
San Francisco, CA -- (March 17, 2011): Good Vibrations (goodvibes.com), the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, is proud to announce the that its sister company, Good Releasing, was recently nominated for ten Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto for its films.
The nominees are: “Billy Castro Does the Mission” (Reel Queer Productions); “Ciao Bella: A Woman’s POV” (Reel Queer Productions); “Femmetastic” (Reel Queer Productions); “Heads Up: The Official Guide to Fellatio” (Pleasure-Ed); “Roulette Toronto” (Reel Queer Productions); “Seven Minutes in Heaven: Fuck Yeah!” (Reel Queer Productions); “Tight Places: A Drop of Color” (Reel Queer Productions); "Pregnant with Desire" (HeartCore Films) and "My Own Master" (HeartCore Films) were also nominated. Good Releasing Distributes "Crash Pad Series Volume 6: Wide Open" (Pink & White Productions) which was also nominated.
Nominated for the 2010 AVN “Best New Video Production Company” Award, Good Vibrations’ sister company Good Releasing offers various lines of edgy, alternative, and educational films that provide a exciting option for people looking for original alternatives to mainstream porn. Representing independent artists creating authentic and diverse erotic content, Good Releasing presents three video production lines, “Reel Queer Productions,” “HeartCore Films” and the “Pleasure-Ed Series.”
Started in 2006, The Feminist Porn Awards are produced by Good For Her, a Toronto, Canada based feminist sexuality education centre and sex store. This event was started when Good For Her realized it wasn’t enough to criticize adult films for not adequately representing women’s – and in many cases, men’s – sexuality. The Feminist Porn Awards were created with the goals of celebrating ethical, feminist porn, exposing this work to a larger audience, and creating community amongst filmmakers, performers and audience members. Since starting the Feminist Porn Awards, Good For Her has handed out over 70 awards to movies, short films, websites, directors, heartthrobs, boundary breakers and visionaries, while shining a light on the astoundingly sexy work of these feminist artists and filmmakers.
As porn star and performance artist Annie Sprinkle famously said, “The answer to bad porn isn’t no porn…it’s to try and make better porn!”Good Releasing offers various educational films through its Pleasure-Ed line featuring such topics as fellatio, cunnilingus, and the much-anticipated, soon to be released film “Gush: The Official Guide to the G-Spot and Female Ejaculation.” In addition, Good Releasing features two other lines: HeartCore Films (edgy, creative erotic films primarily for heterosexual and bisexual audiences) and Reel Queer Productions (LGBTQ offerings). These two lines won three awards at last year’s 2010 Feminist Porn Awards.
