Good Releasing Welcomes Feminist Porn Award Winner Jennifer Lyon Bell to its Roster of Original Talent

Good Vibrations

San Francisco, CA -- (July 28, 2010): Good Vibrations (, legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, is delighted to present “Matinee”, a sexually explicit drama by Jennifer Lyon Bell, an American film director who lives and works in Amsterdam.  Named one of the “Top Five Porn Films for Women” by Cosmopolitan Germany, this original film showcases authentic sex, a compelling storyline, and top notch acting and production.    

Good Vibrations’ sister company, Good Releasing, is the exclusive distributor for the film’s introduction to the American market, and they are confident that viewers will eagerly welcome the latest in the string of high quality female-focused explicit films.  Director Jennifer Lyon Bell is a progressive female director with a unique vision of eroticism that bridges the gap between art film and sex film, producing erotic film for people who like film.

Matinee tells the story of Daniel and Mariah, two actors whose performance as lovers has failed to convince the critics, and earned them bad reviews. When various attempts at making their connection authentic fail, Mariah decides to take the ultimate creative risk and hopes that Daniel will follow. In this afternoon performance, they put their careers on the line in an erotic theatrical experiment that leaves no doubt as to their chemistry. 

Viewers expecting traditional pornography are in for a surprise. The production quality is high and the connection between the characters is deep. The director takes her time setting the stage for the actors whose sex is anything but contrived. In addition to being beautifully lit and shot, original music enhances the emotional intensity without veering into sentimental territory that mars so much female-focused soft porn. 

Nominated for the 2010 AVN “Best New Video Production Company” Award, Good Releasing offers various lines of edgy, alternative, and educational films that provide an exciting option for people who may be uninspired by mainstream porn.  Good Releasing recently received three Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto for its films, and two of its star performers -- April Flores and Jiz Lee -- were also honored. 

Jackie Strano, Good Vibrations’ Chief Operations Officer explains, “Good Releasing’s titles showcase authentic and hot adult entertainment full of lustful and unabashed sexualities, unapologetic desire, genuine pleasure, helpful information and screen burning chemistry.  Matinee is the perfect expression of that, featuring quality filmmaking, original writing, and talented acting to produce a sexy film that can be enjoyed on many levels.”

Good Vibrations’ Fifth Annual Indie Erotic Film Festival (IXFF) will feature Matinee in a special evening of “Hot Euro Cinema” curated by Jennifer Lyon Bell.  On September 21st movie goers can experience her electric filmmaking and that of several other notable European filmmakers in a collection of short erotic films at the Red Vic Movie House.
