Each year Canadian adult store Good For Her conducts the Feminist Porn Awards, a celebration of female-produced and 0riented erotica. The idea behind the awards are to celebrate positive, female-friendly porn and to explore the idea that feminism doesn't have to automatically mean "porn-hating."
Annie Sprinkle famously said, "the answer to bad porn isn't no porn. It's more porn!" Thus, Good For Her gives awards to quality erotica that depicts the female experience of sex and celebrates diversity. Feminist porn includes all kinds of erotica, from softcore, soft-focus stuff to seriously out-there bondage and kink. It also gives a voice to marginalised voices, such as lesbian and trans women, and celebrates different body types.
Porn Movies For Women supports the Feminist Porn Awards! Check out the full list of current and previous winners on this page. You may also want to see the full list of Feminist Porn Awards Nominations from the last few years.

In 2009 the awards took on a new format, with no official categories separating the nominees. It's an unusual move, perhaps designed to create a level playing field and encourage a move away from official genres in porn.
Here are some of the 2009 nominees.
The latest film from lesbian auteur Shine Louise Houston has had the critics raving. Apart from all the hot queer sex, this film has a riveting story behind it. Hotshot martial artist Jessie Easton is training for the fight of her career, yet she’s haunted by past love and current, undeniable attraction to her opponent, Violet Vahn. Throw in some conflict with corrupt nemesis Bobby Malone, and you’ve got an intensely erotic and masterful crossover film. Whether Jessie wins or loses the fight, you’ll be squirming in more ways than one.
Starring: Syd Blakovich, Madison Young, Jiz Lee, Dylan Ryan
Director: Shine Louise Houston
Feeling It (2008)
In "Feeling it!" Petra stays true to her magic formula: The Vignettes are artistic visualisations of a huge variety of sensual pleasures, with female enjoyment always being the main focus.

"Feeling it!" continues to cross over the boundaries between art and porn by featuring artistic sex scene with explicit content such as a body paint sequence and a girl-on-girl play scene where a lace pattern on the girls' bodies was created through shadows from a parasol. These kind of scenes are essential to and unique in Petra’s films
