The first ever feminist porn awards.

Mark your calendars, because tomorrow night is the first-ever feminist porn awards, to be held in Toronto. Dubbed "Vixens and Visionaries," the show is scheduled to feature the queen of women's erotica, Candida Royalle and anal authority Tristan Taormino. I had a hard time navigating the "Good for Her: Celebrating Women's Sexulity" site on which the awards are announced, but according to Nerve's Scanner, prizes will be handed out for "Best muff diving" and "most jaw-dropping female orgasm." Oh, and also, the awards are called the "Emmas" in honor of Emma Goldman. Who is surely having a posthumous jaw-dropping female orgasm of her own just thinking about this type of recognition.
