TORONTO — The winners of the 2014 Good for Her Feminist Porn Awards were announced Friday night at The Castefield Event Theatre.

The ninth annual event, sponsored by Slixa, once again attracted directors and performers from around the world. Twenty-three awards were handed out in categories ranging from Smutty Schoolteacher Award for Sex Education to Steamiest Straight Movie.

"Good For Her began organizing the Feminist Porn Awards in 1996 to celebrate the growing diversity of porn where everyone can see their bodies and desires reflected," said Carlyle Jansen, founder of Good for Her and producer of the Feminist Porn Awards. “Feminist Porn is rapidly eclipsing mainstream options for its fair trade labor practices and inclusivity for everyday people. The festival showcases an increased level of sophistication and cinematography that appeals to both the mainstream porn audience as well as to those who feel left out of porn’s traditional style of eroticism.”

Responding to feedback that they want to “see more porn," the events also included a screening event called Public Provocative Porn: The Year’s Best in Feminist Film, giving audiences a chance to see more of the films as well as the opportunity to engage with filmmakers with their questions.  Held at the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre in Toronto on April 3, more than 500 people gathered to watch selections from Feminist Porn Award-nominated films. French filmmaker Ovidie, Amsterdam-based Jennifer Lyon Bell, Australia’s Zahra Stardust, Barcelona’s Lucie Blush, Americans Paul Deeb, Courtney Trouble and Shine Louise Houston, as well as local filmmakers Carey Gray and Sonya Barnett were on the panel to share their experiences, goals and processes in filmmaking. Orgranizers said "these selections of films shattered assumptions about the porn aesthetic, from folks who used an iPhone to those with big budgets, from soft to edgy, artsy and political."
