Courtney Trouble’s Trans Lesbians is a chemistry-driven hardcore feature that follows Bailey Jay, Chelsea Poe, and Drew DeVeaux through a lusty web of lesbian sex. The five scenes in Trans Lesbians are shot in Trouble’s trademark artistic hardcore style that blends effortlessly the trans-postive porn ethos that TROUBLEfilms is famous for, with an edge of raw, hardcore sex that fans love.
“I wanted to focus on three women who have really put forth so much effort to make the industry a great place to work, and really embody that TROUBLEfilms creative spirit. Bailey, Chelsea, and Drew stand above the rest in my mind as muses and incredible individuals. They are three of the most important trans performers of our generation.” – Courtney Trouble

San Francisco Lesbians 1: Scissr Sex App (2014)
Pink Velvet is a new label by major mainstream company Smash Pictures. They asked Courtney Trouble to be the director and this is the first film from this partnership. Can a regular mainstream company do queer porn properly? This film is the answer.
The blurb: Maxine and Courtney have been married ever since SF made it legal back in 2008. They are the driving force behind a new tech company called SCISSR - a hook up cruising app, for women. The power lesbian super couple have posted a profile in their own app, searching for a girlfriend to make their relationship a triad - a huge inspiration behind the app's creation.
Courtney and Maxine can track the app's success at hooking up horny SF lesbians, and watch as Ella Nova starfucks the notorious Kinky Gaga, Minnie Scarlet looks up an older woman with experience so show her how to do SF, and Daisy Ducati crosses paths with the delectable Dylan Ryan during their morning jogs.
The app seems to be working for everyone but Courtney and Maxine, as countless hook ups go by before finally, right as they are about to give up - Siouxsie Q's profile blinks heavy on the screen. Have they found their true live-in-lesbian love, or was this just another tale of lonely lesbian cruising in the queer mecca?
Starring: Courtney Trouble, Daisy Ducati, Dylan Ryan, Simone Sonay, Ella Nova, Maxine Holloway

April giggles, moans, and comes hard around Q-Tip’s cock before returning the favor with her hands for orgasm after orgasm. Maxine and Kitty can’t decide what to wear and decide that staying in is better than going out, with Kitty making Maxine squirt all over her tits. A sweet massage turns dirty when Syd uses her tongue to caress Cinnamon’s round ass and thick thighs. For the finale, a beautiful scene shows Courtney riding Nikki’s strap-on before making her come with a rough fingering.

Come Find Me (2013)
The blurb: With an adorable, romantic, and kinky storyline, Come Find Me is a Courtney Trouble first: This heterosexual porn incorporates a female point of view, kink and consent, authentic sex, and a personality-driven storyline that doesn’t end with ejaculation.
Gasper sends his girlfriend Poppy on a bike-powered scavenger hunt ending at an empty house with a gorgeous man ready to ravage her inside out. He binds her with bike tubes, spanks her, and taunts her until she’s too wet to stand – and then with an HD cam in hand, Poppy (with award-winning director Courtney Trouble) documents an afternoon full of lustful oral sex, fingering, and finally – some deep, desperate, hard core fucking that makes both of them come hard – at last!
Come Find Me is a true collaboration, with a narrative shot by Bike Smut real-life couple Poppy Cox and Gasper Johnson – and a gorgeous, high definition, high art sex scene shot by Courtney Trouble, director of 14 full-length films and the recipient of 5 Feminist Porn Awards and countless AVN nominations.
Courtney Trouble and Bike Smut have created a straight porn flick that stands out from the rest. Challenging the formulaic male gaze of mainstream heterosexual pornography, Come Find Me is a fine example of independently-made, female-foward pornography. Come Find Me features spoken and visual consent patterns, a focus on female pleasure as well as male, and an altruistic approach to character development that allows you to fall in lust with the woman, and the man. It strays from the stereotypical “porn for women” trope by offering up hard core close ups, rough sex, and HD cinematography along-side it’s romantic authenticity.
It’s clearly a winner for all genders, couples, solo men, solo women, bisexuals, bikesexuals, kink lovers, amatuer porn afficianados, and indie porn experts!
