LOS ANGELES — Vivid-Ed director Tristan Taormino took home two awards at the 5th Annual Feminist Porn Awards (FPA) in Toronto on April 9.

Her Vivid-Ed movie “The Expert Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men” won for Hottest Sex Education Film. In addition, she was honored for her decade in the adult film industry with the prestigious Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement in Feminist Porn.

Canadian columnist and author Josie Vogels presented the Trailblazer Award.

“In an industry with an incredibly high turnover rate, it is remarkable when someone can sustain a 10 year career while simultaneously continuing to stay true to her intentions and expand the scope and impact of feminist porn. A trailblazer makes way for others to follow and opens up new opportunities for people attempting to forge their own path through similar avenues. In feminist pornography, one name evokes an understanding of art, of advocacy, of education and of quality – Tristan Taormino,” Vogels said.

“I am honored and humbled to receive two Feminist Porn Awards. To be acknowledged by my peers is such an amazing feeling. I want to thank Steven and Marci Hirsch and everyone at Vivid Entertainment, Nina Hartley and Ernest Greene for their friendship and support, my amazing production crew and editors and all the fantastic performers I’ve worked with over the years,” said Taormino in accepting the award.

Taormino has won previous FPA “Emma” awards (named for feminist godmother Emma Goldman) in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Organizers of the awards said that the past five years have seen many improvements in the adult industry as it pertains to women, particularly "...the explosion of female filmmakers looking to change the way that sex is presented on screen."
