Grooby’s “Real Fucking Doc” Wins Diamond Award at Adult Film Festival LV

 

Las Vegas, NV – Grooby’s “Real Fucking Doc” directed by Lilith Luxe won the acclaimed Diamond Award at the Adult Film Festival LV this past weekend in Las Vegas, NV. The film is an exclusive companion documentary to the award-winning title “Real Fucking Girls” directed by Mona Wales.

“I am beyond thrilled with the win!” stated Lilith Luxe. “It gives me such joy that this film is out in the world being seen by so many people. Especially as there is more and more discussion about porn in the mainstream media, it’s only by sharing and celebrating sex-worker-produced pieces like ‘Real Fucking Doc’ that we can control the narrative. My only hope with this piece was to provide a platform for everyone involved with ‘Real Fucking Girls’ to say what they wanted to say exactly how they wanted to say it, because the world needs to hear it.”

“Real Fucking Doc” follows the cast and crew during the filming of “Real Fucking Girls” at the Armory in San Francisco back in February 2016. Documentarian Lilith Luxe beautifully weaves together behind the scenes content, interviews with the cast and crew, and scenes from “Real Fucking Girls” itself for an extended version of the documentary submitted to film festivals like Adult Film Festival LV.

“I have so much love and respect for what both Lilith and Mona created with these pieces,” added Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director, Kristel Penn. “I’ve been showing an excerpt of ‘Real Fucking Doc’ for the educational workshops I’ve been running and attendees often share with me how it helped demystify the industry for them. Like most media, consumers generally only see the finished product. I appreciate how Lilith gave a platform to the cast and crew of ‘Real Fucking Girls’ to give depth and dimension to their creative choices were and show how much agency they had in the process.”

“Real Fucking Girls” recently won Best Trans Release at all three major adult award shows: AVN, XBIZ, and TEAs. This is the first time a trans title has swept at all three shows. It can be purchased directly at the GroobyStore.com.

“I’m so proud of these three pieces in particular,” said Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “They’re all very different in terms of content, but their connecting factor is how each gives a platform for our performers and creators to freely express themselves. Anytime we can elevate other voices in our community, the more depth and dimension is given to our genre.”

“I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to make this documentary,” added documentarian Isabel Dresler. “Transgender performers are by far some of the hardest working professionals in the adult industry and face so many unique challenges both on and off camera, they deserve all the recognition for their achievements that they can possibly get and I’m glad I was able to help shed light on this amazing awards show.”

“A TEA Story” is an exclusive documentary Isabel Dresler shot at the 2016 Transgender Erotica Awards. It will be shown on March 18 at 2 pm and March 19 at 3:30 pm. Dresler’s piece “Exposure” will also be shown during the same timeslots.

Grooby’s Kristel Penn to Present “Pajamas, Popcorn, and Porn: Slaying the Shame Monster Under Our Beds” at the Armory this Saturday

Grooby, the leading producer in trans erotica, is sending Kristel Penn to co-facilitate a 2.5 hour educational workshop to destigmatize porn and its consumption at Kink’s Armory in San Francisco, CA. She, along with a licensed therapist, will address how shame damages sexual exploration and identity and then teach attendees how to discuss porn in a neutral setting for their personal relationships.   

 

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn will be co-facilitating a workshop on destigmatizing the adult industry and porn consumption this Saturday at the Armory in San Francisco as part of Kink.com’s educational series. She’ll be presenting the 2.5 hour workshop with an LMFT and showing an exclusive version of “Real Fucking Doc” by Lilith Luxe, the documentary companion to Mona Wales’ directorial debut, Real Fucking Girls.

“Presenting this third incarnation of our workshop at the Armory feels a bit like we’re coming home,” said Kristel Penn. “My focus will be on demystifying the adult industry and addressing shame in the context of porn and its consumption. Sharing Lilith’s documentary from ‘Real Fucking Girls,’ which was also shot at the Armory, is such an integral part of my personal mission to help destigmatize the adult industry. She gave everyone a platform to speak openly about their experiences and wove it into a beautiful piece.”

“As a mental health professional working with marginalized communities whose identities bear the undue burden of cultural stigma, I’m confronted daily with the effects of shame on individuals, relationships, and groups,” added California LMFT Traci Medeiros. “Especially when it comes to areas as intimate (and complicated) as sexuality and desire much sensitivity and attention are needed. Our identities don’t have a direct and singularly causal relationship to our mental health, but the stigma we experience around those identities do. When someone is told often enough that they are bad, sick, and deserving of the shame they carry it can be hugely detrimental to that person’s mental health, how they interact with others around them, the well-being of our communities, and can even extend as far as larger society and legislation would reinforce the original cycle.”

“Pajamas, Popcorn, and Porn: Slaying the Shame Monster Under Our Beds” will be hosted on Saturday, March 11, from 5-7:30pm by Kink as part of their educational series held at the historic Armory in San Francisco, CA. The first 25 attendees will receive a free copy of “Real Fucking Girls” signed by director Mona Wales. All participants will receive free merchandise sponsored by Grooby and an official “Unashamed” pin from ShameKillsLove.com to celebrate the completion of the workshop. Tickets can be purchased at the link here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pajamas-popcorn-porn-slaying-the-shame-monster-under-our-beds-presented-by-kristel-of-groobycom-registration-28272758582

The San Francisco Armory is located at 1800 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA, 94103. Inspired by the Kink.com mission “to demystify and celebrate alternative sexualities and BDSM through transparency”, the company offers Bay Area locals and visitors the opportunity to attend workshops that will aid in providing the information and encouragement to support exploration.

Award-Winning Director Aiden Starr Announces 2017 TEA Gold Sponsorship

AVN award winning and multi-year TEA nominee Aiden Starr announces her first sponsorship of an awards show with her Gold Sponsorship of the 2017 Transgender Erotica Awards, the adult industry’s only trans-specific erotica event.

Los Angeles, CA – Award-winning director Aiden Starr is proud to announce her gold sponsorship of the upcoming 2017 TEAs. Aiden is nominated for Best Scene Producer and for her DVD, Hot for Transsexuals #2.

“This is my very first sponsorship of an awards show!” said Aiden Starr. “I feel very connected to the TEA Show as I’ve been going for years and have seen it grow so much. The show is not only well-produced and glamorous, but very inclusive of all genders and sexual alignments. I’m so happy to support them in any way that I can.”

“Aiden has been very supportive of our show over the years and now she has stepped up as a sponsor to continue her support of our show and the overall community,” added Steven Grooby.  “Our show is reliant on not just the corporate sponsors but individuals like Aiden who work in our niche showing their love and celebrating another year of TS erotica.  We’re all looking forward to celebrating with her over  the weekend as well as showcasing her brand.”

The ‘Hot for TS’ series by Aiden Starr is exclusively available for Evil Angel as a subscription on Hot4TS.com via EvilAngel.com, on VOD at AEBN, Hot Movies, and many others! It can also be purchased on DVD at Adult DVD Empire.

Grooby’s “All My Mother’s Lovers” Directed by Mona Wales, Arabelle Raphael Now Available for Purchase

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby and Exquisite are proud to announce the release of their newest DVD, All My Mother’s Lovers. The title is co-directed by and stars Mona Wales and Arabelle Raphael, with performances by Freya Wynn, Delia Delions, Mandy Mitchell, and Bianca Stone. It hits the shelves today and can be purchased at the GroobyStore.com on its own or bundled with Wales’ award-winning directorial debut, Real Fucking Girls.

All My Mother’s Lovers is a tantalizing taboo tale where young Freya Wynn finds herself following in her mother’s (Delia Delions) footsteps to the front door of a lesbian commune and into the arms of her mother’s lovers (Mona Wales, Arabelle Raphael, Mandy Mitchell, Bianca Stone). Seduced by the beautiful women living on the country estate, All My Mother’s Lovers follows Wynn’s sexual awakening.

“This movie is very special for Mona and me,” said co-director Arabelle Raphael. “We just fell in love with the property when we saw it and we knew we wanted to make something beautiful and tender. It reminded us of a film we both watched as a kid. This is a re-telling of Bernardo Bertolucci’s Stealing Beauty with a lesbian twist. This film is also about self-discovery, love, and family.  We made something personal and really sexy at the same time. Making this film felt very much like we were there living on this lesbian commune. We put a lot of work into this, I hope everyone enjoys it!”

Arabelle Raphael is a multi-AVN nominated performer who just launched her website ArabelleRaphael.com recently. She’ll be launching another site in May and can be followed directly on Twitter @ArabelleRaphael for more updates.

“I loved making All My Mother’s Lovers because this movie had it all, beautiful women, a stunning location, an awesome script that paid homage to both 1990s coming of age movies and 1970 nudist camp porn flicks,” said co-director Mona Wales. “Like every movie I hope to make, this movie was made with a great amount of care and attention to detail the result of which is a porn movie that people want to pay for.”

Mona Wales is an AVN-nominated and TEA winning performer. Her directorial debut, Real Fucking Girls, swept at both AVN and XBIZ in 2017 winning Trans Release of the Year. Visit her official website at MonaWales.xxx and follow her on Twitter @MonaWalesxxx.

“Just a few weeks after winning both AVN and Xbiz for her directorial debut ‘Real Fucking Girls’, Mona Wales returns as co-director with Arabelle for this fabulous release,” added Steven Grooby. “I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this in my 20 years working in transgender porn. It’s stunning to look at, it has the right balance of story, romance, and sex, and it just all comes together beautifully – everyone involved should be very proud and I’m just happy we can be associated with it.”

Getting to know three-time TEA nominee Lianna Lawson!

ThroughTheBenz_featuredsize

Lianna Lawson is a new face in the trans porn scene who has made a big impact and become a fan favorite. Her work can be seen on several different sites such as Shemale Yum and Tgirls.porn, and she can also frequently be found camming. Lianna was nominated for three 2017 TEAs for Best New Face, Best Solo Model, and Best Scene with Casey Kisses.

Hello Lianna and thank you so much for taking the time to do this interview!

No problem, I’m happy to oblige!

Lianna Lawson TEACongratulations on your three TEA nominations! How does it feel to get that many nominations?

It’s almost surreal. I wasn’t going into porn thinking I’d get nominated for anything, however that being said, it’s amazing to have not only one but three nominations among many other talented and beautiful ladies. So something is being done right, I think.

How did you get started working in the porn industry?

Well I just started posting images of myself on social media revealing more and more. Eventually Grooby director Omar Wax scouted me and got my ass, quite literally in front of a camera. The rest kinda just went from there.

Many consider being a model in the porn industry would be a dream job. Is the job really as glamorous and as much fun as people would assume?

To the uninformed it would seem like the “dream job,” but it is, in fact at the end of the day, a job. I mean there are some cool parties with cool people though, but you gotta *work* to get there.

What’s your favorite part of the job and your least favorite part?

My favorite part about the job is getting to meet all the amazing people in front of AND behind the camera. Some of the most interesting and amazing people I’ve ever met have been through doing porn. As for the least favorite thing about the job is the stigma attached with being a trans sex worker.

What advice would you give to aspiring models who want to get into the industry?

I would tell them that they should know the risks and to think really long and hard about what they want out of working in the adult industry.

Who are some of the people who have influenced you the most throughout your career?

A lot of my influences comes from fans and friends, some of my friends being people like Shiri, Robin Banks, and Natalie Mars. All wonderful people. As they’ve all definitely helped me throughout my career in one way or another.

Lianna Lawson

Can you tell us what Grooby means to you?

Well as you know Grooby is one of the flagship companies that produces and distributes trans porn. That being said, it’s quite an honor to be featured by them and basically be propelled onto the home screens for those that appreciate and admire trans porn. And for that I’m pretty grateful. It means a great deal that I can be a part of the Grooby community and be accepted for who I am.

Does your family know you work in the porn industry and if so, how do they feel about it?

They know I do porn, but like any parents they’re concerned with all the risks associated with doing porn, I assure them that I am safe and doing well. They’re not happy with my choice to be in porn, but hey I’m here.

What was your childhood like growing up?

My childhood was pretty ordinary growing up so to say; I grew up in a military household, so there was lots of moving around and some strict rules. I was also the youngest of three siblings and for the most part I stayed outta trouble, got good grades, and played an unhealthy amount of video games. I didn’t necessarily have any long friendships because of the moving, so I found solace with online games and their communities and kinda explored things from there.

Lianna LawsonHave you always known you were trans, and was it a process to come to terms with that?

I wouldn’t say that I always knew I was trans, but I had a feeling that things were not “right” growing up. My teens were basically a period of self-discovery and lots of teen angst. And being raised in a fairly strict conservative household did push me to hide some of the ways I felt and acted. Initially I thought I was just gay, but I was drawn more to the feminine side of things and felt more comfortable exploring those aspects of myself. Eventually I sought professional help and guidance when I was 23 which allowed me to be more comfortable with myself and much happier.

Is your family supportive and accepting of you?

I would say they’re still getting used to the fact that I’m transitioning and are slowly coming to terms with it in their own special way.

How do you address those who claim that trans women are being exploited as sex workers?

There’s exploitation in almost every aspect of life, to think that trans sex workers are an exception is a little naive. You just have to have a steady head about yourself and know when something just isn’t right.

Violence and suicide are two of the biggest problems that the trans community faces, with 41% of trans people attempting suicide. What can we as a community, and more importantly, what can society do to address the issues which all too often leave trans people feeling like their only option is to end their life?

A part of the solution would be the community recognizing the warning signs when people are at risk of committing suicide. It’s up to the community to know and address what’s wrong or troubling the individuals who reside in said community. Support groups for LGBTQ people would be a great place for trans people seeking help and to get the care that they need to help prevent suicide. With increased efforts by the community it can bring awareness to society to change for the better and hopefully decrease suicide rates among transgender people.

What do you feel are the biggest issues facing the transgender community right now?

I think one of the big issues facing the transgender community would be acquiring and maintaining a job in the workforce without discrimination or fear of losing their job and having job security not only on a federal level. The mainstream media tends to focus on some non important issues like trans women in bathrooms and are primarily concerned with what our genitals look like. So the public is being informed that when it comes to trans people, you should be afraid or disturbed. Not to mention the media has a tendency to portray only the bad news, but that’s an entirely different subject.

Lianna Lawson Shemale Yum

There is a negative perception of the adult entertainment industry and those who work in it by mainstream society. What can we as an industry do to break down those stereotypes and get people to view us in a more positive light?

What would really help break down the negative perception of the adult industry would be the normalization of sex and breaking down how it is seen as a holy ritual. However that isn’t going to happen anytime soon because we live in a puritanical world where violence is rewarded and sex is shamed. Hopefully society’s attitude towards the adult entertainment industry will evolve and everyone will be better for it.

Who inspires you?

I’d say friends and a little bit of Sasha Grey.

As a trans woman do you find it difficult to date, along with being a pornstar?

Well I don’t date much and I’ve only been on a couple dates and the dates I have been on the people I’ve seen have known that I’m trans and do porn. I can see how it would be difficult, but I have not encountered those problems just yet.

When you’re not working, what activities do you enjoy in your free time?

Well I enjoy playing videogames, watching movies, reading books, etc. y’know the usual. Two things worth mentioning though are my interests in photography and dancing. I’d like to explore a little bit more with both, but they’re kinda just little hobbies that I dabble in. Also dancing is a great way to stay active.

I read that your favorite movie is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which is also one of my favorites. Do you enjoy classic movies?

Yea I really enjoy the classics, they’re a great place to delve into the beginnings of a really fascinating industry.

With your interest in photography would you eventually like to get behind the camera and shoot or produce porn?

I think it’d be an interesting move to shift from in front of the camera to behind and end up shooting porn. That would be something to see.

Lianna Lawson     Lianna Lawson

Do you enjoy interacting with your fans on social media?

Sometimes it’s an absolute blast talking to people from all over the world and other times it’s a total drag. For example I can talk about some really cool things like chemistry or firefighting and other times it’s some Joe Blow who is looking for some wish fulfillment or a cheap thrill. it’s kinda all over the place, lots of hits and misses.

What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?

That I have a dick, but seriously I think people would be surprised to know that I’m down to earth and a fairly easy going person.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

I just don’t know, I do however hope that it is not as a statistic.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this interview Lianna, it was a pleasure!

“The ‘Best Solo Site’ category is one of my favorites at the TEAs because it gives recognition to performers who run their own sites,” added Steven Grooby. “In recent years we’ve seen an increase in self-produced content and sites, so the competition is very tight for this year’s award!”

Previous winners of the ‘Best Solo Site’ category include Venus-Lux.com, TSJamieFrench.com, and TS-Jesse.com. To see this year’s nominees, visit theTEAShow.com.

Launched in 1997, Eros was the first worldwide advertising site tailored to service transgender entertainers, offering premium advertising, qualified traffic, and world-class customer service. Check out their official website at Eros.com.

The TEAs (also known as the Transgender Erotica Awards), now in its ninth year, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry and its performers. From its humble beginnings as an online competition started by Grooby, the TEAs are now a three-day event that includes a pre-party, fan convention, and awards program.

The 2017 TEAs will be hosted by viral sensation and TEA Lifetime Achievement winner TS Madison at the Avalon in Hollywood. The pre-party will be held on March 3 at the Bardot, the fan convention will be held on March 4 at the Avalon, and the awards will be held at the Avalon on March 5.  The Avalon and its connecting property, the Bardot, are located at 1735 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA, 90028. Discounted pre-sale tickets are available for purchase at theTEAShow.com.

[Photos] AVN Expo 2017 Re-Cap

I’ve been sitting on these photos from the AVN Expo a few weeks ago, but I’ve only been able to come up for air today as everyone here at Grooby is TEA planning overdrive right now (and by the way, have you bought your TEA 3-Day All-Access Pass Yet?).

As I learned this time around, AVN is not a sprint, but rather a marathon. And in this marathon, the cups of water waiting for you as you round the bends are actually vodka.  Although we didn’t have a booth, we had plenty to do while we were on the convention floor. Fran from Shemale Strokers kindly let us bother her throughout the week

I was fortunate enough to moderate a wonderful personal panel called “Sex Is…Trans Activity” with Aubrey Kate, Foxxy, and Natalie Mars in the Joint. They talked candidly about their lives and how their work personas differed from their real selves.

I also participated on a fun panel with some big women in the adult industry called R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Grooby Dev took video of the panel, so I’ll be posting that soon as well!

In the meantime, enjoy the pics!
