JENNIFER OFFICIAL PRESENTER AT EURO FEMINIST PORN AWARDS

October 17, 2009

European Feminist Porn Award

 

After four successful years of the Toronto-based Feminist Porn Awards, German sexpert and sex-toy entrepreneur Dr. Laura Méritt decided to create Europe’s much-needed first Feminist Porn Prize.

 

Jennifer was honored to be asked to present one of the awards at the Berlin on October 17 ceremony, and to have her own film “Matinée” honored at the post-award event.

 

Dr. Méritt invented the award in appreciation for the importance of quality filmmaking in breaking down gender stereotypes, enhancing female sexual pleasure, and contributing to sexual enlightenment. For the award, Dr. Méritt created a specific list of criteria to help determine whether or not a particular film is a true sex-positive work.

 

Naming the award “PorYes” (a specific reference to German critical porn demonstrations branded “PorNo”), the first year’s award was given to the top five pioneers of international women’s porn: Candida Royalle, Maria Beatty, Petra Joy, Shine Louise Houston, and Annie Sprinkle. Though Annie Sprinkle was the only one who couldn’t be present at the awards, her protegee Alicia Relles Relles performed a Sprinkle-tastic nude homage to Annie’s work and accepted the award on her behalf.

 

The German jury included Dr. Meritt, professor and feminist film maker Ula Stoeckl, sex-positive publisher Claudia Gehrke, and Cultural Studies and porn scholar Dr. Corinna Ruckert.

 

The prize is a crystal trophy shaped like an oyster with a prominent pearl. We think you catch the drift.
