The Bi Apple (trailer)

February 13, 2008

This video is not at all a review – actually, it’s the trailer for “The Bi Apple,” my debut as a porn director and producer. It’s up for a GayVN award for “Best Bisexual Video” this weekend, so keep your fingers crossed! I’ll be Twittering the award show for those not in San Francisco.

Here are the full details on the film:
The Bi Apple is the tale of Simone Valentino, a young sex researcher who ventures to New York City to study a group of bisexuals who hang out in an apartment they call the fuckhouse. As she watches and takes notes, Simone realizes that as much as she enjoys her job, she’s more than a little turned on by watching – especially boy-on-boy action. Written, directed and produced by Audacia Ray for Adam and Eve Pictures.

Starring Simone Valentino (2007 AVN Best Actress nominee for her performance in Aphrodite Superstar) and featuring Tasty Trixie and Tucker Lee, Mariah Ritani and Tyler Marciano, Antonio Rodickuez, ReVay, and Josh.

The Bi Apple features straight, strap-on, boy-boy, girl-girl, and boy-boy-girl sex scenes, and an all-natural bodied, racially diverse cast. The film is condom-only.

After its release on February 27, 2007, The Bi Apple became a best-seller in the Adam and Eve print catalog, and on June 1, 2007 the film won “Hottest Bisexual Sex Scene” at the 2007 Feminist Porn Awards sponsored by Good for Her in Toronto and it has been nominated for “Best Bisexual Video” at the GayVN Awards. Violet Blue highlighted The Bi Apple as one of her top picks in her Oprah Magazine article, “Eyes Wide Open” in July 2007.

The film has screened as part of the C*lick Me Netporn Festival at Paradiso in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on June 2, 2007, in the New Filmmakers Series at the Anthology Film Archives in New York on July 24, 2007, and as part of the Berlin Porn Film Festival which ran from October 24-28, 2007 in Berlin, Germany. It will screen as part of the “New York Stories” program at CineKink in New York on February 27, 2008.

Cubbyholes

February 13, 2008

Audacia Ray reviews the GayVN award-nominated Cubbyholes from Trannywood Pictures.

As the name of the production company might hint, Trannywood Pictures is in the business of creating porn films featuring transmen and the men (bio and trans) who love them.

The GayVNs are this weekend in San Francisco – Cubbyholes is nominated for Best Alternative Release – for those unfamiliar with the world of gay porn, it’s a pretty big deal for a movie featuring transmen to get this nomination. And -ahem- my directorial debut The Bi Apple has also gotten a nomination, for Best Bisexual Video.

If you’re in the Bay Area this weekend and want to party down with some porno misfits, come on by the Center for Sex and Culture (1519 Mission Street) on Saturday, February 16th between the hours of 1 and 4 pm, where I’m hosting a little pre-GayVN awards party for myself.

The Art of Blowjob: Camille Crimson

February 2, 2008


Audacia Ray reviews The Art of Blowjob, a high quality porn site with artful photography featuring performer Camille Crimson and her love of cocksucking.

In this video, I allude to the problem with feminism and blowjobs – if you’re interested in digging into this a little bit further, have a look at the online debate that took place between me and pornographers Erika Lust and Petra Joy this past fall after a panel we were all on at the Berlin Porn Film Festival.

I wrote about this issue on my blog Waking Vixen, in a post titled Feminist Porn Wars (new and improved!) (not really)
My post is a response to a post Erika Lust wrote: Can’t a feminist enjoy a blowjob??
And her post was sparked by something Petra Joy wrote on her blog (which doesn’t have permalinks for the posts)

Bloggy good times!

Best Erotic Comics 2008

January 30, 2008

Audacia Ray reviews Best Erotic Comics 2008, edited by Greta Christina.

If this concept of a dirty comics anthology sounds vaguely familiar, you’re not wrong. Before this book came two other recent (but unrelated) volumes.
True Porn was published in 2003
True Porn, Volume 2 was published in 2005

One of my faves, though not strictly erotic because it’s sexual but mostly in that disturbing way, is Phoebe Gloeckner’s Diary of a Teenage Girl. Some of Phoebe’s work is also featured in Best Erotic Comics 2008.

AbbyWinters.com at the Adult Entertainment Expo 2008

January 18, 2008

Today’s review is, um, not a review. It’s a video of the AbbyWinters.com booth at AEE last week in Las Vegas, and I think it pretty much speaks for itself.
