Grooby’s ‘All My Mother’s Lovers’ Wins the ‘Most Tantalizing Trans Film’ Award at the Toronto International Porn Festival


Grooby, the leading producer in trans erotica, scored big at the Toronto International Porn Festival this past weekend winning the coveted ‘Most Tantalizing Trans Film’ Award for “All My Mother’s Lovers” co-directed by Mona Wales and Arabelle Raphael.

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby’s “All My Mother’s Lovers” directed by Mona Wales and Arabelle Raphael took home the coveted Most Tantalizing Trans Film Award at the Toronto International Porn Festival this past weekend.

“We really love Mona’s work and were excited to see her and Arabelle sharing directorial duties for ‘All My Mother’s Lovers,’” said Steven Grooby. “As a fan of cinema and, in particular, their inspiration ‘Stealing Beauty’ with Liv Tyler, I think they assembled the perfect cast to capture the romanticism of the original movie. This is a really groundbreaking addition to our genre.”

“Mona and Arabelle were both kind enough to speak about filming ‘All My Mother’s Lovers’ at a workshop I co-facilitated on destigmatizing porn at Kink back in March,” added Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “They eloquently discussed the importance of authenticity and diversity in narratives in trans porn and worked diligently to make sure those ideas were translated on-screen.”

The sensual “cumming-of-age” story follows young Freya Wynn as she follows her mother’s (Delia Delions) footsteps to the front door of a lesbian commune and into the arms of her mother’s beautiful lovers (Mona Wales, Arabelle Raphael, Mandy Mitchell, and Bianca Stone).

“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 “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.”
