Shine Louise Houston Wins 'Best Boygasm' at Feminist Porn Awards
TORONTO — Pink & White Productions was awarded "Best Boygasm" for "Heavenly Spire: Volume 1" at the 10th annual Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards on April 17 in Toronto, Ontario.
The awards sought to honor pornographers from across the globe, whose groundbreaking work offers a fresh perspective on gender and sexual expression often underrepresented in pornography.
"I feel like I’m hogging this title because we got it last year for 'Bed Party,'" director Shine Louise Houston confessed to loud applause. "'Heavenly Spire' is a little bit different. It's my self-indulgent project about masculinity… It’s about different type of men and the ways that masculinity can manifest on different types of bodies. There are many, many more ways to be a man and to be masculine than society allows. This is my outlet.”
"Heavenly Spire" is a personal project for Houston, who expressed, "Accepting my own masculinity has allowed me to feel okay about my desire for masculine people, and exploring it in film lets me look at male bodies the way I want to."
Pink and White's longstanding relationship with Good For Her's annual celebration began at its inception 10 years prior at Vixens and Visionaries. An "Emma of Feminist Porn" was the company's very first award, received for its debut film, "The Crash Pad." Since that time, the annual Canadian event has proved a catalyst in the careers of emerging pornographers and an positive influence for the adult industry at large.
Pink & White Productions' nominated works included CrashPad's "Guide to Fisting" (the first sex ed film to address the often censored act of fisting), Houston's softcore short "PUT the NEEDLE on the RECORD," and the company's long-running queer porn website CrashPadSeries.com.
