Grooby’s ‘Real Fucking Girls’ Wins Best Transsexual Movie at 2017 AVN Awards

Los Angeles, CA – Mona Wales’ directorial debut, Real Fucking Girls, scored the award for Best Transsexual Movie this past weekend at the 2017 AVN Awards held in Las Vegas.

“I would like to thank our industry for celebrating the work of the amazing women who worked so hard on this project to create something unique, real, and sexy as fuck,” said the film’s director, Mona Wales. “Every single woman who touched this film gave so much of themselves to this project. I want to tell them how grateful I am for their work, their performances, and their realness.”

‘Real Fucking Girls’ brings together an all-star cast of performers, including Aubrey Kate (who won multiple awards between AVN and XBIZ in 2017), Daisy Ducati, Natassia Dreams, Simone Sonay, Jane Starr, Amarna Miller, Kelli Lox, Ella Nova, Tori Mayes, and Bella Rossi. ‘Real Fucking Girls’ is the only trans title to win both AVN and XBIZ DVD categories.

In addition to its adult content, editor Lilith Luxe shot an exclusive behind the scenes documentary, REAL FUCKING DOC, with interviews from the cast and crew. The title has been submitted to numerous film festivals within the last few months and is currently in consideration.

‘Real Fucking Girls’ star Aubrey Kate also won big at AVN this past weekend, taking home three awards, including the coveted award for Transsexual Performer of the Year.

“Congratulations to Mona and the cast and crew of ‘Real Fucking Girls’,” added Steven Grooby. “It was such an honor to help produce this title and give a platform to the voices of everyone involved.”

“I believe ‘Real Fucking Girls’ is only the beginning,” continued Wales. “The industry and the community of porn consumers are ready for authentic and artistic expressions of sexuality. This win emboldens and inspires me and I hope others. I cannot wait to share our latest film, All My Mother’s Lovers, that drops on February 13th.”

Wales’ highly anticipated follow up, All My Mother’s Lovers, is currently available for pre-sale at the GroobyStore.com. Co-directed with Arabelle Raphael, the title also stars Freya Wynn, Delia Delions, Mandy Mitchell, Mona Wales, and Bianca Stone. The title can be purchase on its own or bundled together with award winning ‘Real Fucking Girls’ exclusively at the GroobyStore.com.

My thoughts on the Chelsea Manning case

ThroughTheBenz_featuredsize

I have to admit I have mixed feelings about Chelsea Manning’s sentence being commuted by President Obama. I suppose I’m okay with it because it does not absolve her of the crimes she was convicted of like a pardon would have, and she has clearly suffered inhumane treatment while being incarcerated.

Chelsea Manning is a United States Army soldier who was courtmartialed and convicted in July of 2013 for 17 violations of the Espionage Act and other offenses, including five counts of espionage and theft, after disclosing to WikiLeaks nearly 750,000 classified or unclassified but sensitive military and diplomatic documents. She has served nearly seven years of her 35-year sentence.

I am not a lawyer or an expert on the Chelsea Manning case. I am a transgender woman and also a veteran. Transgender people have a long history of serving honorably in the military, and as a veteran myself I feel she has brought dishonor to herself and the Army and brought a lot of negative attention to trans people in the military, especially since her defense used the fact that she’s trans as one of the main reasons to justify her crimes. Being transgender and serving in the military is not easy, but it can be done as evidenced by people such as retired Navy SEAL Kristin Beck and Shane Ortega who served while being open about the fact he was transgender and played an important role in getting the military to allow trans people to serve openly.

Whether you view Manning as a traitor to her country or a hero for being a whistle-blower depends on your point of view. This is a topic which people seem to have very strong views about and there seems to be no middle ground. But the one thing which is not disputable is that she was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act for releasing classified documents and that she pled guilty to 10 of those charges.
But, after doing some research it became apparent that it would be a tough if not impossible task to mount a defense against these charges because the way the way the Espionage Act is written and the limitations the defense had to contend with. However, Manning’s defense was based largely on the claim the Army disregarded Manning’s emotional turmoil over her gender identity and isolation in a military that barred homosexuals from serving openly, which in my opinion is a pretty weak defense and does little to defend her actions. Again, transgender people have a long history of serving honorably in the military and managing to do so without committing espionage.

I’ve also learned more about the Edward Snowden case and I have an easier time understanding what he did and why he did it than I do the Manning case. There are obvious similarities between the two cases and it’s difficult not to compare the two. But to me, the main difference is that Manning was a soldier and broke her oath to serve her nation and fellow soldiers. She voluntarily joined the Army and took an oath to serve her country, and she broke that oath and the law when she willfully stole classified documents which she released. Should there be no consequences for her actions? But, Snowden fled the country and is living in Russia to avoid prosecution, while Manning went through the legal process, acknowledged she had done something wrong, and was tried and convicted. So, it does seem kind of hypocritical for me to be okay with what Snowden did while condemning Manning actions, but as a veteran what she did just doesn’t set well with me.

I also take issue with all the people who have campaigned for Manning to be pardoned for her crimes because of the inhumane conditions and treatment she has had to endure while incarcerated. I think we all agree that her treatment while being detained has been inhumane and unacceptable. But to say she should be released because of that is unreasonable because the two issues are completely unrelated. She was found guilty of 17 charges against her, and while her mistreatment is deplorable, it has no legal baring on her conviction; that is a separate legal issue. I’m sure Charles Manson has claimed he hasn’t been treated fairly in prison, so should he be pardoned too? Any trans person who is incarcerated has my sympathy and support because I can’t begin to imagine what a nightmare that must be. Anyone who is incarcerated deserves to be treated in a humane way and given the rights they are entitled to, but in my opinion they deserve nothing more. Prison is for people who have broken the law and been convicted for their crimes; it is not meant to be a fun place. Perhaps she, as with all people who willingly choose to break the law, should have considered the consequence of her actions.

The other argument which I take offense to is that she should not have been convicted to begin with because she was reporting war crimes. Again, she did plead guilty to 10 charges and was convicted of 17 counts including espionage. And I’m fairly certain that the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Espionage Act have no exemptions which state that espionage is acceptable as long as you’re reporting war crimes. And speaking of war crimes, has there been an official investigation and hearing to determine an official ruling of war crimes? She was also convicted of theft, having stolen information which was not hers. So, everyone who wants her pardoned must feel that stealing is acceptable and that people who break the law should not be punished? The bottom line is that she was found guilty of espionage. Her guilt or innocence is not in question and should not be an issue.

Whatever your opinion of Chelsea Manning, be it from the perspective of a citizen of this nation, a veteran, or a trans person, the fact remains that she committed a crime which she was convicted of and sent to prison to serve her sentence. I suppose time will tell what her legacy will be in the history of our nation, but in my opinion she failed her country as a soldier and she failed the transgender community by attempting to justify her crimes by using the fact that she was trans as an excuse. And our nation and military failed her by not providing safe and humane treatment while she was incarcerated. Perhaps something positive will come from this, that her mistreatment will serve to highlight the problems within our military and civilian prisons and prevent other trans inmates from being subjected to inhumane conditions. And hopefully Ms. Manning will find peace and be able to move on with her life.

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby and Exquisite are proud to announce their highly anticipated upcoming title, Trans6uals II, directed by Jamie French. The DVD is now available for pre-order at GroobyStore.com and is scheduled for release on January 16, 2017.

“Trans6uals II is a testament to professional ambition, hard work, a shared vision, and newly forged friendships,” said director Jamie French. “With a limited budget and minimal resources, we were able to get six unique personalities to work together in perfect concert over the course of four days all whilst having a total blast on set and off.”

“It’s not hyperbole to say that the first Trans6uals was groundbreaking in its concept and although the sequel follows the same format, it’s no less exciting,” added Steven Grooby. “I believe this has been the most anticipated release of the last 12 months, with many fans contacting us via social network or directly since the cast was released in mid-2016. This DVD has brought together some of the cutest, hottest, and most sought after trans performers and all shot beautifully, tastefully and very erotically. Fans of transgirls with trans girls will love this DVD and the unique style and humour which Jamie French delivers to us in Trans6uals II, demonstrating her as one of the only auteurs in TS filmmaking today.”

Trans6uals II is a hardcore trans girl orgy with an all-star cast assembled by director and star Jamie French, including Korra Del Rio, Natalie Mars, Kira Crash, Sarah Webb, and Shiri. The title is a worthy follow up to its predecessor, Trans6uals, which also featured a steamy six way tgirl orgy. Trans6uals II is currently available for pre-order at GroobyStore.com.

“I’m very happy with the end result and would like to thank everyone who helped to make Tran6uals II such an amazing experience,” added French. “I’m sure our audience will absolutely love it!”

Chatting with Ms. Unique, Chelsea Marie!

ThroughTheBenz_featuredsize

Chelsea Marie is one of biggest names in trans porn and definitely a fan favorite! Known for her colorful hair and many tattoos, Chelsea is the 2016 Transgender Erotica Award winner for Ms. Unique and looks to be a strong contender again in 2017! I had the pleasure of getting to hang out with Chelsea while I was living in Los Angeles earlier this year and really enjoyed getting to know her. I’d always seen her around but I have to admit I was a little shy about approaching someone as famous as she is, but Chelsea is a really sweet and down to earth lady and I’m happy to be able to call her a friend. This was a really fun interview for me because there were lots of messages and chatting going on between us, with me pestering her about the questions and asking her to answer just one or two more, and she was always very gracious and accommodating to my many requests! So thank you Chelsea, I owe you a drink next time I see you! I think we did a really great interview and I hope you like it as much as I do!

You were the winner of the 2016 Transgender Erotica Award for Ms. Unique. Can you tell us what it is about you that makes you so unique?

I think what makes me unique is my personality, I am down to earth and very giving to people. My looks also make me unique; I am always changing hairstyles and covering up tattoos or getting more tattoos. At 5’9” I’m tall and slim but I am trying to change that, so I asked my doctor to give me curves so he upped my hormone dose and told me to do squats with weights, so that’s what I am doing.

Chelsea Marie TEA 2015

What color hair can we look forward to seeing next March at the 2017 Transgender Erotica Awards?

I am thinking all black with a bright color or I really want to back to blonde, but I guess you all will have to wait find out at the TEA show in March!

Chelsea MarieYou have quite a few tattoos, do they have special meaning?

I have always been into tattoo art and fashion, so when I turned 17 I got my first tattoo, which is now covered up by my angel wings. To be honest they don’t really have meaning, I just always wanted to have colorful art on my body as my way of expressing myself. Sometimes I will be in the mood to go get tatted and feel brand new, sort of like cleansing my soul. People may love my tattoos or they won’t, but they are mine and I am proud to walk around covered in ink. Most people will stop me and ask about them, and that always puts a smile on my face.

What was your childhood like and when did you realize you were transgender?

I realized I was trans at a young age, around 8 years old, when I used to play with my brothers and sisters and cousins. I always played with them and I would wear their clothes and they would put makeup on me, and I even had my step-dad at the time paint my toes. But I did boy stuff too; we all used to play football and basketball together but I got picked on by my brothers when I didn’t want to play football; they would say I was a sissy or a girl so I guess in a way they all always knew I was transgender.

When you were that young did you understand what being transgender meant and was it something you accepted right away?

When I was a young boy, girl stuff didn’t matter to me because I played with both girl and boy toys. I didn’t understand what it meant to be transgender until I was about 13 years old when I came across a picture on the internet of a transgender porn model. I didn’t know about hormone replacement until I was older when I saw a doctor for hormones and began therapy to make sure this going to be my life.

Once you realized you were transgender was the process of transitioning difficult to reach the point where you could live full-time as Chelsea?

Transitioning is hard for everyone in our own way since we all have unique lives. What was hard for my transition was just starting hormones and throwing all my boy clothes out, and starting out new and learning how to wear makeup and being confident in public and not being clocked and called sir. But as the years went by and the hormones took effect I learned how to look good and become passable. I was happy and felt this is who I am supposed to be in my life and felt good to be looked at as female and getting called female pronouns. Surgery helped out a lot to and I am wanting to have more surgery, but that will come in time.

Is your family supporting and accepting of you?

My family is very accepting of me; they took it kind of hard when I came out to them, but they got over it. My family is really close and they all live in the same town and I stay with them from time to time when I want a break from California life. Like right now I am staying in my room at my brother’s house taking a break, so I guess you can say this is my family time because I don’t want to have regrets in life and family is a big part of my life. I love them all even if we have our issues, but every family does. It’s how you overcome them to be a good person to others, at least that’s how I was raised. Family comes first.

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

Yes, my family knows I work in the adult industry. I don’t tell them about the movies I’ve done; I’m not like ‘hey Mom I just got fucked on set today by a big dick.” Even though my Mom and I are close I tell my family everything and we talk about sex, but not my scenes. My Father tells me he’s proud of me and how good I am doing. I am happy the way my life turned out even if I am not married or have children. One day Mom!

How did you get started in the porn industry? Was it something you ever thought you’d do?

I didn’t think I could get in to the industry but it’s actually pretty easy to do porn these days, but to be a pornstar you have to work at it and always try to improve the quality of your porn. I was actually going to be in gay porn before but it didn’t happen because I couldn’t make it to the shoot. But when I transitioned I was told by one of my friends I knew from Florida who said I should try trans porn and I did my first shoot for Grooby for Shemale Yum. I was so shy because it was my first time being in front of a camera, but I enjoyed it and it took off from there and here I am today still making films for everyone to enjoy! I am looking forward to working with more pornstars and to be in a gangbang by a bunch of men and them destroying me haha I can dream!

What does Grooby and the people who work there mean to you?

Grooby to me has been my second family; everyone behind the scenes, working on editing videos, the photographers who make us models look like Goddess in pictures and videos, everyone has a part. I was a Grooby fan before I became a model, so I love when we all come together for events and the TEA Show. I don’t always get to chat with everyone at Grooby, but I love you and all the hard work you do!

So what’s it like being a famous pornstar? Is it as exciting and glamorous as people would think?

I never really think I am famous because if I was I would get stopped all the time by people saying “are you Chelsea Marie?” I won’t lie, it has happened, but not that often. I would love to have famous people with money sign me up. For me, people are fun; I always have a good time and have enjoyed getting to know other pornstars and photographers over the years. But porn is work and you have to know your angles and where the lighting are and the camera; that’s why if you ever watch porn we are always flipping our hair out of our face or giving head a certain way. In real life we aren’t worried where the camera is or if the lighting is okay; you just fuck or make love.

What’s the difference for you between fucking and making love?

Fucking is just sex with no strings attached; getting my orgasm and saying bye or just being friends with benefits. Making love is when you love being with that person, you’re not just out for sex. It means more because when I make love I end up falling in love and I want that person to be close with me and share secrets and to have a future with each other. That’s making love.

What’s your favorite part of being a pornstar and your least favorite part?

My favorite part of being a pornstar is getting booked with other pornstars that I like watching because I know I’m going to have a good day and make an amazing film. I also love having fans give me feedback on how they like the work I do or what they would like to see me doing in my next film. What I don’t like about being a pornstar is that some people judge me for it when I work just as hard as anyone else, if not harder.

Chelsea Marie TEA 2015    Chelsea Marie Grooby 20

Do you enjoy being on social media and interacting with your fans?

I love being able to reach out to my fans, because without them I wouldn’t be where I am today. I have even become really good friends with some of them over the years. I have fans say to me that I am their favorite pornstar and that makes me feel like this was supposed to happen in my life. So I wanna say thank you to everyone out there for showing me love and voting for me over the years and to those who joined my website and bought my movies. To be honest, I love you all!

When I got into porn it was a way for me to model and work on my beauty and to help people be okay with their sexual desires and know that it’s okay to be sexually attracted to transsexual women. As for me I am gender open; I have always seen the beauty in people no matter what gender they are.

Does being a pornstar make it more difficult to date?

I want to say yes and no because I have had both good relationships and bad relationships; some lasting a few years and others just a few months. It’s all about honesty; if you are honest with your partner and love them and trust them shouldn’t be a problem. You’re not making love to your costar, it’s just work and then you go home to your loved one. If you have an understanding with your partner then I don’t see it as a problem, at least for me anyway. But, I am single and probably going to stay that way. I am going to focus on myself for 2017; I want a few more surgeries so when I am older I won’t have to worry about my looks. I want 1990’s Pamela Anderson’s boobs and a big ass like Nikki Minaj.

Personally, I love your boobs and butt just the way they are, but that’s just me 🙂

Skin City Chelsea Marie

What was it like working with Al Tom on his Skin City shoot?

Al Tom and I have been friends over the years but finding time around our busy lives was hard, but we made it happen. When I saw Brooke Zanell and Holly Parker in their Skin City shoot I knew I had to be in it so I got in touch with Al Tom and begged him to put me in it! haha No, I didn’t really beg, but Al is so much fun and so down to earth to work with. I love seeing his work on the internet

Where would you like to see yourself in ten years?

I would love to see myself still being part of the adult industry; we are a family and I am sticking around for a long time. I am healthy and on top of my career, and the fans seem to love me and enjoy watching me in films, so let’s keep on making porn magic!

Chelsea Marie and Honey Foxxx   Chelsea Marie TEA 2016

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

Wow what a question! Probably that I am really awesome at playing pool and playing video games. Or that I have a sick sense of humor; some people take it the wrong way because I love playing jokes on people, but it’s all in good fun. I get messed with a lot too by friends and family members; my father and I always text funny things to each other.

What is a typical day in your life like?

I would say getting a lot of sleep and then waking up to check emails and texts. I’ll get out of bed and shower and get ready with coffee and do my makeup and then have lunch with a friend or by myself. I’ll do some shopping and then come home and play video games, do some webcaming, and then plan out my next trip. My days aren’t really that exciting and I know my life is slow and boring. Just kidding! I love my life and can’t wait to see what is to come!

What do you feel is the biggest issue facing the transgender community right now?

I think since Trump is going to be our new president I don’t see a change for the better. I think he’s going to make it hard, not just for the LGBT community, but for the hard working people out here. He’s probably going to take a lot of our rights away that President Obama gave us. All this hate in our community and always seeing another trans sister getting murdered needs to stop. I think as trans women we should help each other because we don’t have many options like getting a job or having somewhere to live. When I was just starting to transition I never thought I could get a real job, but now transgender women have achieved their own success and careers, so I think some of these girls including me should always help support our brothers and sisters. Life isn’t always easy, but if you have people who support you then we can stay positive and go for our dreams.

Thank you again for doing the interview Chelsea, it was a pleasure!

Grooby, Exquisite Announce ‘Radius Dark’s TS Starlets Volume 1’ DVD

Radis Dark's TS Starlets Volume 1

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby and Exquisite announced their latest DVD, Radius Dark’s TS Starlets Volume 1. The title is directed by 2015 TEA Best Photographer Radius Dark and is now available for purchase at the GroobyStore.com.

“These lovely Starlets got what they wanted during these scenes and it showed on their faces,” said director Radius Dark. “From Lexi Barbie getting lift fucked by a strong man, to Evie Eliot getting fucked hard and fast by an Adonis, to Cherry Mavrick throating a cock so big she can’t get to the base! First timers and Utah natives Treasure Barbie and Lusinda Devine massively enjoyed taking it from their tall dream man as well. It was an all-around great time.”

“Grooby had always been the company that has introduced brand new models our websites so I love seeing these girls in their own DVD,” added Steven Grooby. “Radius searches from Vegas to the whole Pacific Mid-West finding some absolutely gorgeous new trans girls. These are truly starlets – watch them shine.”

Radius Dark’s TS Starlets Volume 1 has an incredibly sexy cast of newcomers, including Lusinda Devine, Evie Eliot, Treasure Barbie, Cherry Mavrick, and Lexi Barbie in five delectable hardcore scenes.

For DVD, VOD, Licensing and Broadcast sales/inquiries (Domestic and Foreign), contact Edward Smith at ed@exiledist.com or (818) 576-9464. All other inquiries can be directed to kristel@grooby.com.

Our recent survey revealed how many customers were members of multiple sites and had been for long periods of time. We’ve been looking at ways to make things better for long term members and also to enable us to maintain the budgets we need, to keep shooting so much content. The margin between our income and budgets is quite narrow, but we have some ideas and we’d like to introduce the VIP membership. For the first time ever we’re offering all our sites for one price – which will be split between the sites. See the full list below.

Plus the following sites too!

+ Brazilian-Transsexuals
+ Shemales-From-Hell
+ Russian-Tgirls
+ FootFetishTS
+ PILadyboy
+ Shemale.Porn
+ Grooby-Archives

If you were to buy each of these sites each month, it would cost over $5500. Even through our previous cheapest way it would be over $3000, and that doesn’t include any of the bonuses.


How can we do it for such a large discount?

Many of our membership sales come through re-sellers or we have to pay large advertising costs. By selling directly to you, and by guaranteeing a set amount upfront, we’re able to reduce the price by over 65% and still keep our website partners with the ability to keep shooting. This is the test and version 1.0 of our VIP membership and we may not always offer it, but if you buy, you will continue to get that price year on year, irrelevant of any price changes that may happen. You can even take up to 6 months between annual memberships and maintain the same cost!

Just imagine, no decisions to be made over what site to join next. No checking that you’ve cancelled a membership. You get access to everything and when we launch a new site, your username and password will automatically be added. No needing to join a site just to see one girl you really like, it’s all available to you!

The DVD membership works the same. Bypassing both the wholesaler and the retailer we’re able to bring between 36-46 DVDs a year to you for under $10 a DVD, no hassle, a monthly package will arrive with your product (or a link will be emailed for direct digital download).


How to take advantage?

We can take payment via bank transfer, check, money order, bit coin or Paypal.

Contact admin@grooby.com for more information – don’t delay.
