Becca Benz 2017 TEA Part 2: Parties and shows!

ThroughTheBenz_featuredsize

The Transgender Erotica Awards weekend is always such a fun time, and my week in Los Angeles had already been pretty eventful before the TEA events had even begun!

Thursday night at Club Cobra signals the unofficial start of the TEA festivities and is always a fun time, and this year was no different. I got there early and was sitting in a booth chatting with friends when my good friend David gave me two bags of delicious Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel chocolates! David is so sweet and thoughtful; last year he brought me flowers, and this year chocolates! It’s moments like this, and seeing good friends again, that makes TEA so meaningful to me.

And then a bit later in walks none other than the beautiful Staci Miguire, looking decidedly more blonde than the last time I saw her! She and I always have fun hanging out and dancing and she brings out my wild side! And it’s nice to be with someone taller than I am for a change! And it so happened that I wore a leopard print dress and Staci wore a zebra print dress, so we had fun with the animal print theme, and there were lots of jokes about predator and prey! We even considered swapping dresses since she’s more predator and I’m more prey, but thankfully we never actually got around to doing it lol

The club closed and security had their hands full ushering us all out of the club and off the property, and then trying to get everyone to go home. There were large groups of people mingling on the street and suddenly a fight broke out and it was like watching moths being drawn to light; everyone ran to the fight and cell phone flashes were going off like mad. We soon heard the sound of police sirens, and then a police helicopter appeared overhead with its light scanning the scene, followed by a fire truck and police cars screaming down the road. It was a crazy ending to a wild night!

Friday I had the pleasure of having breakfast with my dear friend Fran, who is someone I’ve gotten to know a lot more this past year and who has become near and dear to my heart. We’d been counting down the down the weeks and days as TEA approached, looking forward to breakfast and being able to talk and enjoy a break from the dreary Pacific Northwest weather. And it was definitely worth the wait, getting to talk face to face and just hang out and enjoy being together. We had the most wonderful conversations and I wouldn’t let her go back to work because I so enjoyed having her all to myself! And she also gives the absolute best hugs! It was such a wonderful afternoon and one of the things I will remember most from this year’s TEA.

Friday night it was the TEA party, which was moved up this year instead of being the night after the awards show as in previous years. The party was at Bardot and fabulous as always, and it was so much fun seeing everyone, and of course seeing what everyone was wearing, and in some cases, not wearing lol The folks at Grooby know how to throw a party, and this was one of their best!

2017 TEA Pre-Party

My favorite moment from the party was getting Fran and Kristel together for a picture of the three of us. Last year we’d forgotten to get a picture, so Fran and I had been reminding each other not to forget, and I was on a mission to make it happen! And we had such fun doing this picture, and it could not have turned out any more beautifully. These two ladies are good friends who mean the world to me, so I was pleased we got such a wonderful picture together. And as you can see, Fran was kind of getting all touchy feely back there, but she can cop a feel of my ass any time she wants 🙂

In previous years I remember seeing the food vendors outside the Avalon after it closed and how delicious the hot dogs smelled, but I never got one because I was worried about slopping food onto my dress, but this year I was hungry and it smelled so good that I broke down and bought one, and it had to be one of the best hot dogs I’ve ever had. And I managed to eat it without getting any on my dress!

2017 TEA CON After a late night of partying we all dragged ourselves out of bed Saturday afternoon for TEA Con, which this year was held at the Avalon, site of the awards show, and it’s such a great venue; much roomier and you couldn’t ask for more beautiful setting.

I spent the entire afternoon wandering around talking with everyone and never did settle down at a table; my friend Hanna from Transformation Magazine let me put my stuff at her table and it was nice to just sit with her and talk when I needed a break from wandering.

I went for comfort this year, wearing a casual maxi skirt and comfortable top, and flip-flops to give my tired feet a rest! I did have a pair of heels in my bag in case I felt too under-dressed, but they never did make it out of the bag lol

One of the funnest moments from TEA Con was getting the photographers together to pose for a picture for me, which was not unlike trying to herd cats! They have all become good friends over the three years I’ve been attending TEA, and I am so appreciative of the awesome work they do and all the time and effort they put into capturing all the special moments during the TEA events. And I always have so much fun talking and joking with them, and they are always so gracious when I ask them for a picture with someone, which I tend to do more than I probably should!

2017 TEA Con

I had decided I wasn’t going to attend the Saturday night event at Cheetah’s because the previous year had been such a fiasco; instead I had planned to go to either Hamburger Mary’s in Long Beach or Club Shine, but for some reason I was really tired decided to just hang out in my hotel room and order room service and watch the Food Channel. I felt guilty spending a Saturday night in Los Angeles in my hotel room, but I just needed a break and some time to rest and recharge. I don’t have access to tv or the Food Channel where I live, so it was kind of nice to just relax and watch Chopped, and take a nice long hot shower.

Sunday was the TEA awards, and I got my hair and makeup done that afternoon, which is always a fun thing to splurge on. I went to the same salon in Burbank that I went to last year but had a different lady do my hair, and I really enjoyed talking with her. I guess I’m getting chatty in my old age! And it turned out I got to see the lady who did my hair last year, which was nice!

It’s always fun getting all dressed to the nines and getting to wear a gown, and I really liked my gown this year; simple but elegant. I initially hadn’t planned to wear a gown this year because I felt I’d never be able to do better than last year’s gown, but I couldn’t resist. I mean, how often do you get the chance to wear a gown? So I took my time getting ready and then took Lyft to the Avalon. It’s always such a cool moment to arrive and walk in, knowing it’s finally here and that it’s going to be such an amazing night, and seeing everyone there! One of those magic moments that never seems to get old. This year I had the pleasure of walking the red carpet with my friend Eddie Wood, and we had a lot of fun; in fact I may have gotten a bit too carried away with the fun part, but I think Eddie had a good time!

I mingled and talked and hugged and posed for pictures and was having such a wonderful time and felt so fortunate to once again be part of such an awesome event. When I looking through the program I was so excited to see that Al Tom was getting the Best Industry Professional Award!! I got up to go find him so I could give him a great big hug! Al is such a great photographer and a good friend to so many of us, and if anyone is deserving of this award it’s him.

The show was going to be starting soon and I was sitting at our table when I saw Laura Espinoza across the room, so I ran over to say hi to her, and we talked for a while. When I went back to the table I noticed my purse was gone. I asked the people at the table if they’d seen it and asked security if it had been turned in, but no one had seen it. I didn’t have time to worry about it because the award Jamie Jameson and I were presenting was the third award, so we had to go backstage before the show started. It was neat to present an award, and I was happy I got to do it with Jamie because I knew her and knew I could get by with not having to talk much. We were announced, which was pretty cool and then we walked out onto the stage, and I managed to do so without tripping, so I was happy and relieved! Jamie did the talking and I just stood there and smiled and clapped and enjoyed the moment. I kind of felt like Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune! After the winner was announced we moved off to the side and then exited after the winners.

I made it back to the table and still no sign of my purse, and that’s when I really started getting worried. And then when I realized I would not be able to fly home if I didn’t have my driver’s license, which was in my purse, I really started stressing out. And without my credit card or identification I wouldn’t have access to any money, and I stressed even more. I asked a friend who also lived in Portland and who had driven to Los Angeles if I could possibly get a ride back with her, and she graciously said yes, so at least I didn’t have to worry about being stranded here. And thankfully I hadn’t left my phone in my purse so at least I had that.

Miran Becca Benz 2017 TEAWhen the nominees for Best Internet Personality were announced it was such a cool moment to hear my name and see my picture, and to be included among such a distinguished group of nominees. I had a feeling I wasn’t going to win this year because I just felt like there were people more deserving than me. It was still a little disappointing not to win, but Miran is a friend and someone I have a great deal of respect for, and I was happy she won. And I have to say she looked stunning in the gorgeous gown she wore, as she always does.

I stayed until the intermission and then checked again with security, and when my purse was still missing I decided to head back to the hotel so I could call my bank and report my card missing, so I got a Lyft and went back to the hotel, where I had to get another key card so I could get in my room. I changed out of my gown and got cleaned up and then called the bank to report my card missing and arranged for a new card to be sent which would be waiting for me when I got back to Portland. Once that was taken care of I took a shower and tried to calm down. I would be leaving early in the morning to go home with my friend, and I still had to get packed, so there wasn’t much point to going to sleep, even if I could have slept, which was doubtful.

After the awards show ended a friend called me and left a message saying my purse had been found and it was in the security office, so I got dressed and drove back to the Avalon, hoping it wasn’t too late to get my purse before everyone left. I got there just as they were closing up and it took a while to find the right person to unlock the door, but when they opened the security office there was my purse on the counter, and my driver’s license and credit card were still in it. I was so so relieved.

When I had walked in I smelled the hot dogs from the street vender and as I was leaving I realized how hungry I was so I was looking forward to grabbing a couple of hot dogs to take home, but of course they were gone by the time I came out. I got home and checked online to see what was still open, but everything was closed or was not delivering, so I finally ended up going through the drive-through at McDonalds and getting two Egg McMuffins, which seemed an appropriate ending to what had been a long, long night. I got to bed just as the sun was coming up, but thankfully my hotel room had blackout curtains so I was able to get some sleep. I was exhausted Monday and didn’t do much beyond getting packed and having one more meal at In N Out. I had an early flight Tuesday morning so I went to bed early. The trip home was uneventful, and I was just thankful to be on the plane. It was good to get home, except for the weather. I had left warm, sunny California and returned to cold, rainy Portland, which was depressing. I got home and unpacked, and as much as I enjoyed my time in Los Angeles it was good to sleep in my own bed again.

My 2017 TEA was filled with lots of wonderful memories, even though it ended on a sour note with my purse having disappeared, but such is life. Last year was magical in every possible way and I will forever have those memories, and this year was special in its own ways. It all worked out in the end, as it invariably does.

It wasn’t until last week that I even looked at any of the pictures from this year’s TEA events, and when I did I was struck by how tired I looked. I was missing the energy and sparkle from previous years, and that was sort of a wakeup call that something was not right with me.

As for TEA 2018, I’m not sure at this point. I have a lot of personal things to sort out and I’m not sure what the future holds for me. I have three years of special memories and so many wonderful friends, and those will stay with me forever, no matter where my life takes me.

Becca Benz 2017 TEA Part 1: Adventures in Los Angeles!

ThroughTheBenz_featuredsize

I had been counting down the days and looking forward to TEA for a long time; actually since last year’s TEA ended! I got my gown and all the accessories and had all my reservations made and was ready to go! I was so excited to see all my friends, and was looking forward to lots of warm, sunny weather after having endured a Portland winter in which we’ve seen very little sun and lots of rain. I had been checking the weather forecast and was so relieved when I knew the weather would be good. I got packed and managed to get everything into my luggage, including four pairs of heels and my sneakers, and was ready to go!

Going through airport security is never fun because I always get “selected” to go through a pat-down and have my luggage searched. Go figure. So I get the Portland airport and check my bag and get ready to go through security, and it looks like I’m going to make it through without getting searched, but then the TSA agent points to my carry-on suitcase and asks me if that’s mine, and I reply yes, wondering what’s going on. He then gives me a funny look and asks me if I realized I had a large hunting knife in my bag. Shit! My bag has a small pocket on the side which I never use because I never remember it’s there, and when I recently moved I must have thrown the knife in that pocket of the bag and forgotten about it. I try to remain calm and collected and I tell him it’s my son’s knife and I hadn’t realized it was there, hoping I wasn’t going to be detained and have to explain all this. He gives me another funny look and then takes the knife to swab it for residue. He then tells me I can’t keep it, which I already know, and then sends me on my way. So, I normally always get patted down and searched, but when I carry a large hunting knife in my carry-on bag through security I don’t get patted down or even have my luggage searched. Huh. Guess I’ll have to put prohibited items in my carry-on bag from now on.

So I make it on my flight, which was no small relief after the knife incident, and have a smooth trip to Burbank, and get my rental car and find my way to the hotel and get checked in. I splurged a little and went with a nicer hotel, but I was blown away at how nice my room was, and how amazing the shower was! I knew I’d be enjoying lots of long hot showers while I was there! My apologies for not doing my part to conserve water while I was there.

My first order of business was finding the sun-deck at the hotel to lay in the sun and get some much-needed color, but I find out the sun-deck is closed for repairs. What??? Thankfully their sister hotel was across the street and had a nice sun-deck, so I found a comfy chase lounge and enjoyed the warmth of the sun while I relaxed and looked at the palm trees. It was good to be back in Los Angeles! The second order of business was heading to my favorite In N Out Burger for dinner. Surprisingly it wasn’t too crowded and I got a booth to sit in while I enjoyed my animal-style burger and fries. God how I’d missed In N Out burgers!!!

I spent the next two days lounging in the sun and working on getting a tan, but being careful not to burn, and just being lazy and checking out my old haunts from when I lived there. Wednesday night I went to The Abbey, which is a place near and dear to my heart. The people who work there are so friendly and always so good to me, and it’s such a fun place whether I’m there to dance or just people-watch, plus they have really great food! I got there fairly early before things got too crazy and order a drink, which is the first drink I’ve had in a long, long time, so it doesn’t take much to get me feeling good lol And then Brooke Zannell, Eddie Wood, Chelsea Marie, and Montasia showed up, which was a really nice surprise! I was so excited they were there and to get the chance to catch up! Little did I know just how exciting things were going to get! We were sitting at a table talking, and I leaned over so I could hear what Brooke was saying when all of a sudden Eddie jumps up and starts furiously patting my head, and I’m wondering what the heck is going on. Then I smell something burning and Eddie is telling me my hair caught on fire when I leaned over the table and my hair went into the candle, which I hadn’t even noticed. Thank God Eddie saw what happened and took such quick action. And thankfully I didn’t have any product in my hair or hadn’t worn hairspray, otherwise my hair might have gone up like a Roman candle. Everyone assured me not much hair burned and that it wasn’t noticeable, but I was still pretty freaked about it. But after another drink I wasn’t so worried lol I managed to get back to the hotel at a decent hour without any further incidents. My first few days in Los Angeles were pretty exciting, and the TEA events hadn’t even started yet!

Becca Benz TEA 2017

Next week in Part 2 I’ll cover all TEA Con, the TEA Pre-party, and the TEA Awards, as well as a fun night at Club Cobra.

TEA Time is almost here: the 2017 Transgender Erotica Awards are coming!

ThroughTheBenz_featuredsize

With the Transgender Erotica Awards coming up soon I thought I’d share my perspective about what it’s like to attend the TEA events for those of you who have never gotten the chance to experience it in person. Hopefully this will help convince you that it’s an event that can’t be missed!

TEA 2017

The purpose behind the Transgender Erotica Awards is to recognize those who work in and have excelled in this industry, but it’s so much more than just the awards. While it is nice to be recognized for your accomplishments, the best part of TEA is just getting together with friends to celebrate what we do. And with all the negativity we face because of working in the porn industry, let alone the fact that we’re also trans, it’s nice to be with people where it’s okay to feel good about what we do and who we are. We get a chance to put aside all the negative crap that seems to predominate the news lately and have some fun for a few days. And for me, it’s more than just a gathering of people I work with and the fans who enjoy the product we create, it’s more like a family reunion. I’ve made so many friends in this industry, people who have come to mean the world to me and are like family, and that is what makes this so truly special. I get to dress up in a fancy gown and hang out and party with some pretty amazing people, and it doesn’t get much better than that! And for those new to the industry it’s a great opportunity to learn how the industry works and to meet people and network. But TEA is so much more than just about the awards!

TEA Con 2016     TEA Con 2016

TEA Con debuted last year and was a rousing success, and it looks to be even better this year with it being held on Saturday March 4th at Avalon, site of the awards show. TEA Con gives fans a chance to meet and hang out with the performers in a more relaxed environment, along with the opportunity to get autographed photos and merchandise, along with a picture with their favorite model. And Grooby will no doubt have some goodies to give away such as their awesome Grooby Girl t-shirts and calendars. I think I spent all of five minutes at my table because I was having too much fun wondering around talking with people and taking pictures. Even though I work in the industry I’m still a fan, and TEA Con gave me the opportunity to hang out with people I hadn’t met before and make new friends.

TEA 2016

The After-party has traditionally been held the night following the awards, but this year it’s been moved up to Friday March 3rd, with the awards being held on Sunday March 5th. The party takes place at Bardot which is a fabulous venue, and the folks at Grooby know how to throw a heck of a party! It’s always fun to see the outfits people wear, which range from elegant to outrageous and everything in between! The music rocks, the alcohol flows, and the party is one of the best! What I notice most are all the smiles and laughter and hugs, and people just happy to be there among friends. You can say with absolute certainty that a good time is had by all!

TEA 2016

And finally, the Awards Show is Sunday March 5th at the Avalon, and is always an amazing event. The Avalon is a beautiful venue and adds to the over-all atmosphere, which is one of excitement, elegance, and celebration. When you first walk in and see the red carpet and then the big staircase and the auditorium beyond that, it literally takes your breath away. And even more breath-taking are the people who attend and all the amazing gowns and dresses you see, along with some pretty snazzy tuxedos and suits! If you like to people watch then TEA will be your dream come true! The awards show begins with walking the red carpet and getting interviewed and photographed, which in itself is quite an experience! Morgan Bailey is the queen of the red carpet and nobody does a better job of interviewing that her! Then we mingle and have a drink or two and socialize with everyone before making our way to our tables for the award show. And then the fun begins, with your friends and coworkers getting recognized for their hard work. It’s always hard to pick who you want to win because most of the nominees are friends, so no matter who wins we’re all happy. It’s quite an evening.

TEA 2016     TEA 2016

And the TEA weekend wouldn’t be complete without attending Club Cobra on Thursday night which is the unofficial start to the TEA festivities. Cobra is always a fun night and a good chance to hang out and have a few drinks with your friends, or to make new friends!

And come Monday when all the festivities are done and we’re dead tired and our feet are killing us from wearing heels for the past four days, you’ll look back and have a lifetime of great memories and understand what an amazing experience the Transgender Erotica Awards really are! It’s one of those things that has to be experienced in order to understand it! And then you’ll be counting down the days until next year’s TEA!

TEA 2016

This would not be complete without a big thank you to everyone at Grooby who put in so much time and effort to make this event so special. A lot of work goes into organizing and planning TEA and making sure everything runs smoothly, and it’s a credit to them that these events always seem to come off without a hitch. The Transgender Erotica Awards have come a long way since the first one held in 2008, and it will be exciting to see how it continues to evolve and grow in the coming years.

TEA    TEA

Nice socks Dev 🙂

And last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to the many talented photographers who cover all the TEA events and never miss capturing all the special moments. You guys are the best! It’s nice to have so many amazing photos to remember these events by, and to use to promote things. TEA photos are always the first ones I go to when looking for images to use for my interviews, so thank you for that!

Saturday evening June 18th, 2016 Robbi Racks is presenting A Porn Star is Born.  During the party the girls of the LVL will compete is a open mic Fake Orgasm Contest of which the winner will recieve an adult video and photo shoot, 600.00 pay for the shoot, and the set will be produced and marketed by Grooby Productions.  The set will be shot by TEA winning photographer Radius Dark.  Announced attendees include GroobyGirls Robbi Racks, Chelsea Marie, Brooke Zanell and Holly Parker along with the co-star of Shemale Cougar Club Shavonna Starr and Sasha Tremayne.
Sponsors of the event include Grooby Productions, Radius Dark, ShemaleStrokers, TSTyrascottxxx.com, and VegasTrannySex Productions.

It was a Friday night in North Hollywood and we had a real fucking good time. About 60 of us came together on that night to premiere our newest DVD, Real Fucking Girls. This was 2016 TEA winner Mona Wales’ directorial debut and a huge step forward for our genre. For those who don’t know, Mona chose the trans performers she wanted to work with and gave them input on their scene partners. Each scene is actually based on their real life experiences and you know what? It shows. The chemistry between the performers is authentic and damn sexy.

Real Fucking Girls was shot over a three day period back in February of this year. Steven Grooby was nice enough to send me up to San Francisco to hang out during the filming. Mona has mentioned how this project felt like she made a baby with 20 of her friends and I can see why.  There was a distinct sense of family on set and that everyone was genuinely happy to be there. Interestingly enough, I think this warmth carries through each scene.

I was so humbled by our turnout on Friday – it was the first time we’ve ever done a movie premiere. Thank you so much to the cast and crew who were in attendance (Mona Wales, Aubrey Kate Simone Sonay, Jane Starr, Tori Mayes, Natassia Dreams, Ella Nova, Stefani Special, and Siouxsie Q) and much love to those who were unable to attend but were definitely missed (Amarna Miller, Bella Rossi, Daisy Ducati, AJAPorn, Kelly Klaymour, Echo November, Lilith Luxe)! And thank you to our friends who came out to support our event as well – Morgan Bailey, Buddy Wood, Blackula, Isabella Sorrenti, Eddie Wood, Adam Tarantino, and more!!

Grooby Platinum Presents “Real Fucking Girls” Directed by Mona Wales

Real Fucking Girls

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby and Exquisite’s groundbreaking DVD “Real Fucking Girls” is scheduled for release on May 23, 2016. The title marks Mona Wales’ directorial debut and will be released through Grooby’s Platinum Series line with a TEA award winning cast, including Aubrey Kate, Jane Starr, Kelli Lox, Natassia Dreams, Tori Mayes, Amarna Miller, Bella Rossi, Daisy Ducati, Ella Nova, and Simone Sonay.

“‘Real Fucking Girls’ is a tantalizing tell-all film about translesbian sexual encounters where each scene re-tells a real life lesbian hookup of one of our performers,” explained director Mona Wales. “The girls chose their scene partners because they wanted to fuck each other for real, which is why their performances are so diverse and authentic.”

“I loved the idea of Mona Wales producing a DVD with us, especially the collaboration of trans girls and non-trans girls in all aspects of this project,” added Steven Grooby. “I knew we were in for a treat, but when the finished product was delivered it far exceeded my expectation. Each scene is a unique vignette looking into a different aspect of trans girl with non-trans girl erotica. It’s sexy, it’s beautiful, it’s got comedy, and it’s very, very erotic.  This production needs to be recognized for what it is, which is far better than anything else currently being produced in the trans erotica arena that I’ve seen.”

Exquisite/Grooby Sales Manager David Peskin stated,  “Mona Wales, the entire production team and all of the talent have created an absolute masterpiece! The pre-books for this title are phenomenal. Real Fucking Girls is the perfect title to kick off our new Grooby Platinum label.”

Wales continued, “This film was made entirely by talented female porngraphers, ushering in a new era of transpornography. Lensed by AJAPorn, the girls’ bare-naked bodies look bodacious bathed in jeweled colored cinematic light.”

“Real Fucking Girls” features five hot translesbian hardcore scenes filmed by AJAPorn and an exclusive behind the scenes documentary shot by Lilith Lux.

Grooby will also be hosting a movie screening of “Real Fucking Girls” on Friday, June 3rd, in Los Angeles with appearances from cast members and more. Event and ticket information can be found at RealFuckingGirlsMovie.com.
