Industry changers

I never really knew much about TS porn until a few years ago when I discovered Venus Lux. If you don’t know who she is, Venus is an Asian trans pornstar, director and producer who won “Transsexual Performer of the Year” at the 2015 and 2016 AVN Awards. She also won “Transsexual Performer of the Year” at the 2015 XBIZ Awards and “Best Transsexual Performer” at the 2014 Nightmoves Awards. What impresses me so much about Venus is the way that she hasn’t just filmed the usual TS porn scenes which sees the trans star ‘tricking’ a guy. Instead, Venus has branched out and filmed with all kinds of pornstars such as muscle girl Brandi Mae in Trans At Play 3, she’s filmed a scene with one of the hottest MILF pornstars Cherie DeVille for the new pornsite Transfixed and she had a group sex scene with Aubrey Kate, Domino Presley and Jessica Drake in the landmark Wicked Pictures movie Jessica Drake Is Wicked. Venus and Jessica talked about this scene in an XBIZ interview, explaining how important these types of scenes are;

“We had such amazing chemistry together, and I am indebted to her for taking a chance with me to hopefully bridge the gap between many parts of our industry. I sincerely appreciate everything she’s done to help me make a statement about equality, to spread awareness about the project and I look forward to collaborating with her in the future”.

With all of this in mind, I thought I’d write about some of these great TS pornstars who I think are helping to change the porn industry in a good way. First off is Marissa Minx - she’s an Australian trans girl who won “Best Non-US Performer” at the 2019 TEAs (Transgender Erotica Awards). Marissa has led the charge in showing how great international TS pornstars are, in fact she was featured in the first international issue of Transformation Magazine that said;

“The idea of an International Issue is to show how truly global trans beauty is. From the United States to France, from Brazil to Russia we searched for the best representatives to give a diverse look at what’s going on in different landscapes…As you probably know we have been talking about gender identity and expression for over 20 years but it seems as though these topics are only recently coming to the surface for many others, especially those outside of the LGBT community, both domestically and abroad. And even though we have always been a U.S. based publication Transformation has always done its best to cover all aspects of gender from all corners of the globe, to show that the struggle for equality, understanding, and acceptance is universal”.

Marissa loves working on this new and exciting work and she has said in her Marissa Minx biography that she’s going to keep on creating great content because she’s just joined forces with TransErotica (a large porn network) who have helped her create her own solo website;

“I joined forces with Trans Erotica where I was able to get my own website for you to enjoy all of my exclusive content. Don’t be afraid to message me and let me know what else you would like to see from me. I aim to please you all so I am open for suggestions and love to chat! I absolutely love my job and performing, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it for you!”.

Another international tgirl who I love is Carol Penelope. She’s Brazilian, blonde and mainly shoots for the Grooby site Brazilian Transsexuals but she’s also started to create films for Evil Angel. Carol was nominated for “Best Transsexual Performer” at the 2017 Nightmoves Awards and “Best International Model” at the 2018 TEAs and I think it’s mostly because of her great scenes in TS Factor 5 and 7, TS Playground 26 and 27. There are some great photos of Carol’s scenes in these ground breaking Evil Angel movies in her Carol Penelope biography (There also used to be some sexy Brazilian Transsexuals pics of her on Twitter but annoyingly I think her account got taken down).

Moving on, another TS pornstar who I think needs more attention drawn to her is Jessica Fappit. Jessica is a confident performer and a breath of fresh air – she was one of the first stars to shoot for Luna Loveless’s (a fellow tgirl pornstar turned director) new website TSNaturals.XXX that focuses on showing off beautiful natural trans performers. Luna Loveless has explained in a VICE article that this new site lets Jessica and her fellow performers express themselves freely;

I think it’s important because a lot of people around the industry feel that girls have to go through surgery, and the reality is that most trans girls I would say are relatively comfortable just taking their hormones and going through a couple of minor surgeries and just living their lives…I feel like in some sense it sets an unrealistic bar on what a transition is and what it’s about. It’s not about surgeries and changing your body to look like something. It’s about being comfortable in the body that you unfortunately got given. Trans women are women, there is no doubting that. And it’s important that they are seen in their more natural form. I feel like that contributes to the normalization of trans women in society…When they’re doing the shoots they have the freedom to do whatever they want, to express themselves however they want. They’re portrayed exactly how they want to be portrayed…I hope that people who have been purveyors of trans porn for a long time take the time to really realize there are a lot of aspects to the girls they see, that it’s important to learn more about who they are and what they’re about. I think that for those people who are only just coming into [trans porn] now, know that it’s ok to normalize things in your life through porn, but it’s important to make sure you’re getting a good narrative when you do it”.

I like how Jessica embraces her natural beauty and she promotes a healthy message that you shouldn’t have to change who you are just to suit other people. I also think it’s great that Jessica’s attitude is paying off; she’s already won “Best Cam Model” at the 2019 TEAs and she keeps shooting for loads of companies like Devils Film, Transsensual and VRBangers/VRBTrans. I also love how Jessica stays in touch with her fans and she says in her Jessica Fappit biography;

“Social media has been a great outlet for me to find lots of people who enjoy appreciate and support my message…I have followers, just people a bunch of really cool people that enjoy watching me be a hot little slut. And their support is really meaningful to me so I try to interact with them a lot…I use YouTube a lot and I love it. I think it’s really important for people to associate my face and my voice with my message. I like showing people what a real trans girl looks, sounds, feels like, and thinks like”.

Much like Jessica Fappit, Nikki Jade Taylor is another brilliant performer, camgirl and producer who shows that TS pornstars don’t have to follow a conventional route to be successful and have a great fan following. Nikki started out as a camgirl and then she launched her own website which she ran on her own for many years before relaunching it with TransErotica (the network I mentioned earlier that also runs Marissa Minx’s website).

Nikki started shooting for conventional trans porn companies in early 2016 and by this time she’d already got a huge fan base so of course her first scenes for the long running TS pornsite Grooby Girls were a big hit. Nikki also started filming for the Grooby pornsites TGirlsXXX and TGirlsporn and these scenes led to her getting positive reviews from famous TS critics like Caramel Black who said in a TS Dreamland post;

“One of the reasons that Nikki is so successful in both webcam and studio worlds is her interaction. You get the feeling she’s only talking to you. When she’s running circles around her clothed nipples for instance, and exposing them one at a time, it feels like a private moment meant just for you. I don’t know how she creates that sensation, but the more she talks, the more engaging she becomes”.

At first I thought that Nikki had retired but then I read her Nikki Jade Taylor biography where she said she was just taking a break and now she stars in lots of different Trans Angels scenes, TS Playground 32, Trans Vixens and she was made TransErotica’s Babe of the Month in April 2019;

“This year is off to a great start. I love having a network of professionals to help me manage my content and help me succeed. I’m looking forward to seeing where we go from here. Many thanks to the TransErotica team and all my wonderful fans”.

While I’m talking about great tgirl cam models, I’ve gotta mention Kayleigh Coxx who also cams on Chaturbate. Kayleigh won “Best New Face” at the 2018 TEAs and she’s also been nominated for “Transsexual Performer of the Year” at the 2019 AVN Awards, “Best Solo Model” at the 2019 TEAs and “Trans Performer of the Year” at the 2019 XBIZ Awards. Like Nikki Jade Taylor, Kayleigh is such a fun and honest cam model and she’s explained in her May 2017 Through The Benz interview;

“I like to talk, like a lot, so camming gives me that opportunity to interact with people which I really love. As anyone who comes into my cam shows can probably attest to. My cam show is either running my mouth or cumming! I like them both equally because they are pretty different. Being good at camming doesn’t necessarily make you good at porn and vice versa”.

I really like Kayleigh’s scenes with other tgirls like her scene with Aspen Brooks in Girls Trip, her scene with Chelsea Marie in My Trans Crush that was nominated for “Best Transsexual Release” at the 2019 Nightmoves Awards and her scene with Candy Marie in TGirls Porn 12. I also love how kinky Kayleigh Coxx is and she’s revealed in her Kayleigh Coxx biography that;

I didn’t realize how much of me is really a weird kinky person. And I love it I might add. Think porn being… having sex out on the balcony of your apartment…in the middle of NYC…during the day…and you’re just drunk enough to say all the dirty shit you hold back most times. To me I would do that hundred times over and sober! I love it, and I love the dirty thought of hundreds, thousands, of guys jerking off to it”.

I’m going to finish off by talking about a new TS pornstar who I think is going to be one to watch out for – Ella Hollywood. Her Ella Hollywood biography says she started shooting porn in the later end of 2018 but she’s already been Grooby’s Girl of the Month in March 2019. I also found out that she’s been nominated for “Best TS Performer” at the 2019 Nightmoves Awards.

Ella seems like she’s on the fast track to success because lots of tgirl pornstars start out by shooting for websites and then gradually progress to making movies but Ella’s already been in loads of Grooby, Evil Angel, Gender X and Devils Film movies which often takes years for other TS pornstars to do! I particularly like Ella’s threesome with female pornstar Victoria Voxxx and male pornstar Dante Colle in Menage a trans 4, her scene with Lena Kelly in TNT (Trans on Trans) and her scene with Alisia Rae. I also love how genuinely nice Ella seems, you only need to look at her Twitter where she’s always bubbly and friendly. She just seems really happy and at a good place in her life which I find so refreshing.
