Well, here we are lovelies – just before 2014… anyone else reflecting on what got done over the past year?
For folks who create art, products, projects, and campaigns, the end of the year is often time for reflection and accolades – who did what best and/or most noteworthyly (not a word) during the past twelve months.
As is the case with most industries and communities, various adult organizations with variable criteria for seemingly endless categories offer up their assessments of what may be the best content produced in the preceding year. I always find it fun to compare what got nominated with what I had the opportunity (and time) to look at via PVV.
Following, in no particular order, are only some of the award(s)-nominated projects from 2013 – creepy sexy film noir, saints, sinners, bridesmaids, and political activism… enjoy!!
Girlfriends Films’ Truth Be Told – Steven St. Croix is impressive as an incredibly sleazy and manipulative womanizer… who’s just met his match. A film noir mystery masterpiece!!
(pictured: hottest box cover ever does this film justice!!)
Marc Dorcel’s The Ingenuous – if a film was delicious, delectable calories, it might be The Ingenuous. Viewing will require you to suspend your powers of disbelief at more than one moment… but it’s porn, and this porn delivers gorgeous fantasy in courses.
(pictured: butter, sugar, cream, and carbs – perfect!!)
Wicked Pictures’ Saints & Sinners – hott as hell title showcasing the kapow powers of the “angelic” Samantha Saint. Awesome!!
Read more about Saints & Sinners here.
(picture: saint or sinner… or both?)
Zero Tolerance’s Measure X – a valiant effort to support the fight against LA County’s “mandatory condoms in porn” ordinance, Measure B. Though I applaud efforts to get active and political, this particular execution fell a little flat.
Digital Playground’s Bridesmaids – fun!! sexy-fresh!! one of the best things DP has done in a long while…
(pictured: cute stuff!!)
Burning Angel’s The Walking Dead: A Hardcore Parody – honestly, by the time it became time to review The Walking Dead XXX, I couldn’t really do it. I mean, I did it and it was fine, but the whole yellowface thing overshadowed almost every other aspect of this film…
Read about yellowface and invisible racism here.
(pictured: well done, minus one glaring, ridiculous misstep…)
