Feminist Porn Awards Taking Break After 10-Year Run

TORONTO, Canada—After a 10-year run, the Feminist Porn Awards are taking a break. Created by Carlyle Jansen and Lorraine Hewitt of the Good For Her adult retail outlet, the awards were designed to honor adult movies that offered an alternative point of view. But in a recent blog post, Jansen and Hewitt said it was time to try some new ventures. “We at Good For Her have had 10 inspiring and incredible years. We’ve watched our idea grow from a small spark into a bright and brilliant flame. It is with deep feelings of pride and satisfaction in all that we have accomplished that we announce that we will be taking a short break from the Feminist Porn Awards for 2016. We will take this time to re-vision and strategize about how we wish to transform and rebirth the event that is so dear to us. We will be back again soon. We love too many of you too well to not return.” The duo said they were proud of what they have accomplished with the FPAs, as well as the changes they have helped inspire, including progressive new categories created by other award shows, including the AVN Awards. “Now in 2015, the ease of access to technology has been a huge democratizing force in the adult industry,” they wrote. “Small producers with talent and ambition can create a sustainable audience for their work without compromising their vision or their politics. Large studios are working with feminist talent and directors to broaden their audience appeal. Yes, there is still a lot of work to be done, but we have come a very long way from the place where we began.” For more information, visit FeministPornAwards.com.
