Grooby Offers Free Membership Extensions to Those Affected by US Government Shutdown

LOS ANGELES, CA – Grooby, the leading producer of trans erotica, is offering free Grooby membership extensions to those affected by the government shutdown in the United States. The company currently owns and operates over 35 membership sites.  

 

“Politics aside, why should working people have to be so affected by something they didn’t create?” says Grooby CEO Steven Grooby. “While adult entertainment is, and should be, lower on people’s priorities than some of their other bills, I don’t think it’s fair that these people have to go without what amounts to small comforts, for no fault of their own. These are people who support us by paying for their porn, so I hope we can support them a little during this time.”

 

Government workers with existing memberships who have been forced to cancel their Grooby memberships during the shutdown may qualify for a free extension. Those interested in taking advantage of this limited time offer are encouraged to email admin@grooby.com directly with the subject header: Grooby Extension Program.

Scheduled performers will also need to review this document as part of our booking process. Our ‘Code of Conduct’ is public for anyone to view and we encourage performers who haven’t worked with us before to read it so they are able to make an informed decision before inquiring to shoot with us. We will be treating this document as a living, breathing entity, and will amend it when it necessary to protect the well-being of all individuals who work with us.”  

 

Grooby’s ‘Code of Conduct’ is divided into multiple sections, including performer expectations, performer rights, responsibilities of Grooby, on-set responsibilities, affiliate information, marketing, and points of contact.

A Christmas Appeal to our Models, Supporters & the Trans Adult Community

I’d like to start by wishing everyone a very restful, happy and fun holidays and New Year. As the year comes to an end, I look to reflect on it, and how lucky we are to be working in an industry which we enjoy, in which we feel we make a difference and which brings so much enjoyment to so many people. It’s truly a privilege to be able to get up and look forward to going to work each day – and I enjoy the interaction I have with (most of) the website members, the models and my industry peers.

Last year Kristel and I, tested a format which had some of our members who were going to be alone over the holidays, be able to have short correspondence with some of our model volunteers. It worked well, if not a little flawed. This year we’re trying something a bit wider. We recognise that many people can feel lonely over the holidays for many reasons. Even if surrounded by friends or family, some can feel alienated and unhappy. We have models that have no homes to go to, we know people who will spend the holidays alone.

I’d like to offer a personal appeal to you all. Let’s try and be a little more open minded, to be a little more accepting of each other – to understand ignorance is not the same as hate, some people just need educating, let’s try and be empathetic before accusational and if someone needs a little lift up, what can you do to maybe do that?

Kristel and I, both find it frustrating when we can either see someone having issues, or feel that there needs to be a reach out. We do spend a lot of time looking to see if there is any little we can do to make people feel better – but neither of us, or anyone who works with us, are mental health professionals and we need to be very careful about what we can do or say. That being said, I want to anyone to know that my email address at admin@grooby.com and my Twitter inbox (@groobysteven) and Kristel at kristel@grooby.com are open and checked regularly multiple times during the day. If you’re having a really rough time and just want a friendly word – then reach out to us. If any of our models or followers would like to extend this, with their emails or twitters, then if you’re reading this on Twitter – post your contact details or inbox, right here.

Thank you all for allowing me to be part of such a beautiful community and I look forward to growing with you all.

Grooby Launches “Grooby Girls vs. Bad Dragon” Web Series

Leading trans erotica company Grooby teams up with fantasy toy makers Bad Dragon for a retro-inspired wrestling web series titled, Grooby Girls vs. Bad Dragon, launching today.

 

LOS ANGELES, CA – Grooby and fantasy toy makers Bad Dragon debuted season one of their highly anticipated “Grooby Girls vs. Bad Dragon” wrestling web series today. The first season features Lena Kelly, Lianna Lawson, Alexandra Vexx, and Natalie Chen.

 

“This is the first of our new ‘web series,’ which is a way for us to try different niches and ideas and present them to our supporters without investing in a full site,” said Grooby CEO Steven Grooby. “With one price for the whole season pass, users get to see the whole series without rebills.  We’re really happy to be partnering with our friends at Bad Dragon to try this, and we had a lot of performers interested in being part of it, but the four who came in were amazing. I hope people enjoy it, it combines a lot of comedy elements with porn.

 

Grooby Girls vs. Bad Dragon pits trans stars Lianna Lawson, Alexandra Vexx, Natalie Chen, and Lena Kelly against four worthy foes from Bad Dragon’s innovative toy lineup. With each round, Bonersaw, Jäger, Ninja Assassin, and Princess the Twisted Firster face off against a progressively larger Bad Dragon contender. See who wins season one at ggvsbd.groobyevents.com.

A Word on Nominations, Judging and the TEAs.

Despite the Transgender Erotica Awards being as the name infers, an Award show, its main agenda has always been as a celebration of the adult trans industry and to draw a focus on our part of the industry and to honor the fabulous individuals who work in it.  We have a three day event, so that performers, industry and fans who travel from across the world, can enjoy an unparalleled experience of networking and entertainment.  As seriously as we take the nomination and the judging,  we aren’t exclusively about that and all should feel welcome and included.

The nomination process takes us over a month.  We’ve made some changes this year which we hope will enable us to be even more objective and help our judges make their decisions.    Nominations are fielded from fans and industry –  last month anyone had the ability to put forward names and titles for all categories,  we considered each of these nominations in turn which if eligible were put forward.  We then approached the companies shooting the majority of trans companies and asked for their opinions on performers who had worked for them, and scenes/DVDs they considered their strongest.

We’ve made the final nominations tighter than ever this year, and restricted the amount of scenes or DVDs each company can submit, so each companies nominations should be only their best work.   Splitting Best Scene into ‘Best Scene Girl/Boy’ and ‘Best Scene Girl/Girl’ allows the judges to be more objective by making like for like comparisons.    The nominations for the performers are even tighter with dozens of eligible individuals vying for only a few places.   We consider a performers body of work over the year,  the number of different companies they’ve worked for and the scope of work they’ve done.   When you look at the names on the Best Solo Model and Best Hardcore Performer, you can see how difficult it is to change out any of those names for someone else.    Best New Face, Best Non-US Performer also face those challenges while Ms.Unique because of the nature of that award may feature models who’ve done less work but hit a very specific niche, look or style.

All those nominated should be very proud of that – nearly all categories had dozens (if not 100’s) of nominees.   In any sort of nomination or award shows, there are always going to be complaints or opinions, on why someone isn’t included – and I can only answer that we do our best to look at all suggestions no matter if it comes from large companies, or individuals to get a fair temperature of who should be on those nomination lists.

So how is it judged?   We have a unique judging system – each year a selection of judges from the industry, media, and fans are tasked with choosing their favorite performers or scenes.   All judges are given access to the works, or a body of work for each performer to make that selection.  Judges identities are kept a secret (even from each other) until they’ve all submitted their choices so there can be no accusations of tampering.   This year we have company owners, DVD directors, models, producers, media and fans on the panel.   Each judge selects their top 3 choices in order, with different points given to each choice in that order.   The winner being the selection with the most points overall.

We consider this the fairest, most transparent and most objective way to select winners of any award shows, many of which only use a panel of judges.  Nobody from Grooby is judging the show this year (I have occasionally over the years).

A small glimpse into other changes that might take place this year,  as you may know, we have Domino Presley as the Mistress of Ceremonies and Natasha Dreams as our red carpet host (more announcements on the red carpet soon) and we’re hoping to reconfigure the red carpet to provide more room inside.   We’re focusing less on companies names – and more on the performers this year, which is where the onus should be,  although of course, the sponsors will be getting a massive amount of publicity.    We’ve added a ‘Best Self Producer’ category to include performers who make their own content for the clips sites or trade.  We also are working hard on getting our small Saturday convention, TEAcon working and with a new and exciting format to include some round tables on content production, legal and health issues that affect our industry.

We will be addressing more topics as the date grows closer,  including new safety measures for all performers (we are now only a 21+ event),  dress codes (no sweatpants – yes, I mean you!) and how to RSVP as a nominee or a model.

The TEAs are operated as a ‘not for profit’ – Grooby presents it and we rely on sponsors to cover the costs of the locations, programs, entertainment and all the small things that add up to make the show what it is.  We pick up the shortfall – as well as have our staff run the show, and everything needed to make it successful,  so if you are considering sponsoring please speak to Kristel to see what opportunities are available as we really do need you.

I hope this answers many questions.

Yours,
Steven Grooby

Grooby Highlights Trans Adult Community During Transgender Awareness Week

LOS ANGELES, CA – Grooby is proud to participate in Transgender Awareness Week from November 12-19, highlighting advocates in the trans adult community on Grooby.com.

“We’re participating in Transgender Awareness Week to celebrate those who do charity, advocacy work, or otherwise represent the trans adult community in a great light,” said Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “Advocacy comes in many forms and our goal is to showcase that diversity.”

Transgender Awareness Week is from November 12-19 to raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people and the issues the community faces. The week leads up to the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on November 20, which honors the memory of the lives lost due to acts of anti-transgender violence.

“While TDOR is a solemn and important event for the LGBTQ community and its allies, we believe that the Transgender Awareness Week is equally important to pay tribute to,” explained Penn. “This week we want to showcase some of the people in our community who are doing amazing work in formal ways or who lead by example.”

Domino Presley Announced as TEA’s Mistress of Ceremonies

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Transgender Erotica Awards proudly announces TEA winner Domino Presley as their 2019 Mistress of Ceremonies. The upcoming TEAs will be held at the historic Avalon in Hollywood on March 17, 2019.

“We’ve been so lucky to have some truly amazing hosts of the show,” said Steven Grooby.
“Jujubee and Madison really helped build our profile up and their professionalism and presence, I believe, have been a big part of the show. To keep things fresh, we’ve always wanted to rotate hosts. There was really only ever one choice and I was pretty confident it would be something that Domino would both enjoy and excel at doing. She knows so many of the girls personally – and having been in the industry now on both sides of the camera, she has a unique viewpoint.  Kristel and I are both looking forward to working with her up to the show.”

“I’ve never been more excited or nervous for something before,” added Domino Presley. “I’m still in shock that Steven asked me to host and I’m extremely grateful. I have a performance background and am far from shy on the microphone, so this should be a trip. If everything goes as planned I’m also bringing some major entertainment and the opening of the show will be epic. I still can’t believe Steven is crazy enough to let me host…with my sense of humor! You do NOT want to miss this year’s awards.”

Domino Presley is a TEA multi-award winner based in Los Angeles, CA. She first debuted with Grooby back 2010 and since then has worked for every major trans studio in the industry. In 2018, she made her directorial debut with Grooby with the release of her movie, Domino Presley’s House of Whores. Follow Domino Presley on Twitter at @DominoPresley.

The 2018 TEAs are a three-day event held in Hollywood, CA, kicking off with an official pre-party at the Bardot on March 15, a daytime fan convention on March 16, and ramping up to the awards ceremony on March 17 at the Avalon.

Grooby Announces Pronouns Initiative for Producers and Staff

LOS ANGELES, CA – Grooby announced its initiative to include producer and staff pronouns on all relevant sites, social media, and correspondence. The practice of asking pronouns is used often in trans, queer, and non-binary community.  

“This initiative is something Steven Grooby and I have wanted to enact company-wide for quite some time,” said Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “We thought it appropriate to announce it officially today on International Pronouns Day.”

Starting today, Grooby producers and staff will have their pronouns (e.g. she/hers/he/his/they/them) listed publicly on all relevant sites, social media profiles, and email signatures. Additional information about the initiative and International Pronouns Day will be posted at Grooby.com.

“As a leader in the trans adult industry, we want to use our visibility and voice for positive change,” Penn added. “The practice of asking, stating, and respecting pronouns may be relatively new for some of our fans, so we wanted our staff to set an example to illustrate how it works to those who may be less familiar with it. Some may not see the importance of asking pronouns, but from personal experience, I know how validating it is when someone asks and respects my pronouns out in the world. It is a simple act that we can all do to honor ourselves and those we interact with.”

Announcing the 2019 Grooby Calendar! Available Now.

It’s always an exciting time when we get to announce the models we’ve chosen for the 2019 calendar, especially given the amount of time given to choosing and debating not only the models for the calendar but the exact photo which shows her qualities to the best. The idea for the calendar has always been to titillate without being explicit. To choose beautiful shots from a wide range of the beautiful trans women we’ve worked with over the year. To have a work of art, that you can hang anywhere.

This year our job was made a little easier by shooting some models specifically for the calendar when we were on set in Las Vegas in August but realistically we’d have to have a 60 month calendar to include all the models we’d like to and the difficulties of selecting new models, or not having the perfect image of a model that we’d like to include is not minor.

I’m extremely happy with the 2019 calendar. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with and working with all but two of the models this year, and I think they all are very representative of the best (but not exclusively so) of the Grooby Girls over 2018.

We don’t create the calendar to make money. Only 300 will be printed this year (up on last year, in which we ran out). With many of these promised to the models or to media and industry these can sell our fast. We’ve got the calendars on sale for pre-order now and expecting to start mailing next week, so if you want it, now is the time to order at the Grooby Store. We will also have them for purchase at Exxxotica Expo New Jersey where some of the girls will be available for signing.

Grooby Partners Paradigm to Launch New VR Niche/Fetish Site Just VR

LOS ANGELES, CA –  Grooby is proud to announce their partnership with Paradigm and their new site, JustVR.xxx. The site features diverse, kink, and authentic virtual reality scenes.  

“Given our experience and success with GroobyVR we decided to work with Paradigm on a partnership to bring virtual reality scenes that we thought were under-served,” said Steven Grooby. “By working directly with unique and independent performers we were able to keep an authenticity to each niche and I’m excited to see what people think of these scenes and to see what their ideas are for new scenes.”

JustVR.xxx features the hottest independent performers to create a wide selection of erotic genres not available elsewhere. Recent updates include Daisy Ducati, Violet October, Ava Little, Amilia Onyx, and Ryder Skye.

Pre-Nominations Open for 2019 TEAs

LOS ANGELES, CA – Pre-nominations are now open for the 2019 TEAs. Submissions are open to the industry and the public from now until October 23, 2018, at theTEAShow.com.

“It’s that time of the year again, and although we’re five months away from the 2019 TEAs, because of our unique judging process we’re ready to start getting pre-nominations between now and Oct 23,” said Steven Grooby. “Our process remains much the same,  we accept pre-nominations from industry and fans, then our panel pares it down to the nomination list that goes to the judges. This year we’re going to make the number of nominations much tighter. I appreciate and empathize that this will mean some may get missed out, but we need to keep to the integrity of the awards and I believe this will make it more competitive.”

The TEAs, officially known as the Transgender Erotica Awards, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry. The event, now in its eleventh year, started as an online competition and since then has grown into a popular three-day event welcoming guests from all over the world.

“We have one new category this year,  Best Trans Self-Producer,” added Grooby. “So many performers are making their own content for clips type sites or selling direct, we need to be inclusive of them into this show and I think this award will reflect a different type of content and a wider range of performers.”

The eligibility period for pre-nominations runs from November 15, 2017 – November 15, 2018. Additional information and the submission form can be accessed directly at http://www.theteashow.com/pre-nomination-voting

Grooby continued, “We’ve already got a number of sponsors committed and we look forward to welcoming more. The growth and success of our show have been, in large part, due to our sponsors. This has always been an inclusive community-driven event and not a money-making venture for us. We hope that other companies that work within the trans erotica industry, such as paysites, DVD companies, dating and cam sites, and clip stores will join us in celebrating the trans performers who are the backbone of our industry.”

Media and sponsorship inquiries can be directed to kristel@grooby.com. The three-day event will kick off with a pre-party on March 15th at the Bardot, a daytime fan convention on March 16th, and finish with the popular awards ceremony on March 17th at the Avalon in Hollywood. More details about the event and the pre-nomination process will be released in the months to come. Visit their official website at theTEAShow.com.
