MONTREAL — Lesbian erotica studio Girlsway today announced the selection of Jelena Jensen as its Girl of the Year for 2016.
The Los Angeles-born brunette was chosen by fans after their votes were tallied at Girlsway.com, which is part of Gamma Entertainment and its award-winning affiliate program FameDollars.
Bree Mills, Girlsway’s creator and head of Gamma Films, said, "Jelena is an inspiring example of what a Girlsway Girl of the Year represents: beauty, intelligence, passion for acting, a genuine love of women and, of course, captivating onscreen sexual performances."
Jensen was among a dozen Girlsway's Girl of the Month title holders for 2016, including such stars as Serena Blair, Celeste Star, Reena Sky, Cassidy Klein, Mercedes Carrera, Sara Luvv, Abella Danger, Kenna James, Mia Malkova, Riley Reid and Cadence Lux.
Jensen, nominated for a 2017 XBIZ Award as Best Supporting Actress, said that words couldn’t describe how excited she was to be crowned the new Girlsway Girl of the Year.
"Girlsway has always been one of my favorite companies to work for and to be the face of the company for 2017 is an honor,” Jensen said.
Jensen, who made her Girlsway debut in 2015's “Home Schooled,” quickly gained an audience with the all-girl studio's fans, particularly as the infamous Dr. Elixir in the studio’s blockbuster feature, “The Turning: A Lesbian Horror Story.”
She followed that movie with several more Girlsway performances in 2016, including “My Virgin Daughter,” “Mom & Mommy” and “Little Red: A Lesbian Fairy Tale.”
Jensen, an August 2016 Girlsway Girl of the Month, will receive a cash award of $5,000, along with her ambassadorship title.
James took second place with a cash award of $2,500 and Blair won third place with a $1,500 award.
