From Babeland.com website


Couch Surfers at Babeland

Mind-blowing, boundary-busting, scorching hot transman sex—what else would you expect from Couch Surfers, the second offering from trailblazing Trannywood Pictures? From the opening credits to the bonus disc, you’ll find incredibly passionate and skilled trans/gay men sucking, fucking and fisting--including the super hot Dex Hardlove simultaneously fisting two lucky friends (with lots of BabeLube), and a sizzling orgy on the bonus disc. Straightforward boundary negotiation, a full spectrum of trans body diversity, and safer sex practices make the sex a real, intense, and incredibly liberating. Also includes the educational pamphlet “A First Timer’s Guide to Playing with Trans Guys.”

From our Friends at Pink & White..who did well at the Feminist Porn Awards

Check out the sweet shout out midway down....

Feminist Porn Award 2008 goes to...

Toronto’s Feminist Porn Award, presented by Good For Her, celebrated the 2008 awards ceremony this weekend. What a great Monday to find out that we’ve won!

Crash Pad Series Volume 1 DVD was presented with the Hottest Dyke Sex Scene 2008 Award. Bet you want to see it, don’t you? Sign up to join our membership site with the most uniquely queer content online CrashPadSeries.com (and by doing so you’re supporting authentic queer porn) or, buy the DVD, which features the top five episodes of Season 1.

Other awards went to our friends Buck Angel - Boundary Breaker of the Year - (hawt FTM trans porn star who pretty much paved the way for the rest of us with his thick cigar, manly pussy, and his own line of videos. He was recently awarded an AVN Award for Transsexual Performer of the Year, a title which typically goes to Trans Female stars. Go Buck! Woof!

Tristan Taormino, bless her smart ass-loving self, won Smutty Schoolteacher of the Year for her educational Guides to Oral Sex (Cunnilingus and Fellatio). Pink & White’s lovely Lorelei Lee and Dana DeArmond have both had the pleasure of working with Tristan, one of the fresh new voices of feminist sex ed today.

Our Canadian sister Bren Ryder was so inspired by Pink & White Productions’ The Crash Pad, that she decided to start her own porn company up in Canada -- and one year later was awarded the Golden Beaver Award! for her company Good Dyke Porn -- congrats!

You may have recognized Wil and Papi from their smoking hot morning scene and twink sandwich three-way in our third film In Search of the Wild Kingdom. Well, they are the stars of Morty Diamond’s Trans Entities: The Nasty Love of Papi and Wil, which was awarded "Most Tantalizing Trans Film"... AND "Deliciously Diverse Cast" because... well, these two (and the lover they share in the film) are more diverse than a polka-dotted zebra. Is there anything these hunks can’t do?!?

Hottest Kink Film went to our own Superfreak Madison Young for Bondage Boob Tube. If you like rope, and we KNOW Madison likes rope!, do yourself a favor and watch the boob tube.

(FYI If there were an award for Safer Sex Studs, it’d go to our friends at Trannywood Pictures, who were not nominated for awards this year, but have recieved a number of aclaimed reviews for their second film Couch Surfers which does SF sexing proud with hot concentual sex by confident trans guys and even -- even! -- includes a pamphlet on having sex with trans men for new comers! AND they have a VOD website with more trans, gay, and dyke porn to watch online. These guys have a good thing going on!)

We haven’t checked out the other titles of this line up, like the one that won the Sexiest Straight Film, but think it’s just brilliant how queer this line up of awards is -- it’s the opposite of AVN! Erika Lust’s film, which has a trailer online, looks very very hot -- not very queer, but mega alt in a way that looks different from mainstream porn, that’s for sure. (How’d they get permission to use Courtney Love’s track?) Visit our friends at Hot Movies for Her for the trailer: http://hotmoviesforher.blogspot.com/2008/03/five-hot-stories-for-her.html

Community based porn

Congrats to Pink & White, Morty Diamond and Buck Angel as well as the other nominees for the Feminist Porn Awards.

Cubbyholes didn't make the cut, don't know why exactly.

So to vent, here is a list of what we value....

Safe sex, we believe porn should show ways of having sex that his hot and at least reduce the possibility of harm.

We value the talent. Our talent (in front, behind and post production) are committed to the message of Trannywood, and we wouldn't exist without them. We pay all our talent, at least a small stipend for their hard work and their creativity. Some tech folks have donated their time and/or invoiced us significantly lower than their market rate. We also have a profit sharing program to continue to link our actors long after the first round of sales.

We see our talent as more than just an actor to be directed. Our actors help define the scene, often directing the action, some have become directors, editors and videographers.

We support other indy film makers, and fundraisers for surgeries and other emergencies.

We support community conferences over adult industry conferences. We think our message is better shaped by the community we serve than by trying to fit established "standards" of porn.

Whew, there, I feel better now.

Gayvn Awards...oh well.

We had a great showing of a dozen Trannywood folk who attended the GayVN awards.

We were nominated in Best Alternative Release...which had three nominees....Buckback Mountain, Cubbyholes, and Naked Boys Singing.....and the winner was....Naked Boys Singing.

Oh well. Buck was also nominated in another category...the first time he had been nominated on his own in the GayVNs...but he didn't win that either.

We are up for a few more awards this year...will keep you updated.

And sad to say, Bi Apple, our favorite for the Bi Category didn't win there either.

XBiz awards update

Well, Trannywood Pictures wasn't nominated for any XBiz Awards. I was hoping for Emerging LGBT Film Company, maybe they wanted to see we are here to stay...so, we'll see in 2009.

Congrats to Buck Angel for two nominations, best LGBT Feature for Buckback Mountain, and LGBT Performer of the year.

Now, we'll just see what the Gay AVN Awards have to say, I think next week.

-----

We continue to get reorders for "Cubbyholes" and our new film "Couch Surfers" should arrive in our offices this week. We already have three store that have ordered "Couch Surfers" sight unseen.

Weeeeeee.
