2011 Feminist Porn Awards Winners

This being my busiest time of year at work, I had a coming-up-for-air moment having arrived at the long weekend. It’s been over a month since the 2011 Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards, and I hadn’t even checked who won!!! In case you were also

wondering (or in case my curiosity in turn inspires yours…), here are the winners.

If you’re like ‘what the eff are the Feminist Porn Awards?’ Check this blurb from their website:

But wait, what is feminism doing getting into bed with porn? At Good For Her, we are feminists and we sell and rent porn. In 2006 we decided that it’s not

enough to criticize adult films for not adequately representing women’s – and in many cases, men’s – sexuality. So we decided to do something about it. 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 For Her couldn’t agree more.  We believe the world is inundated with cheesy, cliche, degrading, and patronizing porn.  But we also believe that erotic fantasy is powerful, and that women and marginalized communities deserve to put their dreams and desires on film, too.  As feminists and sex-positive people, we want to showcase and honour those who are creating erotic media with a feminist sensibility.
