Julie Simone Scores Feminist Porn Awards Noms


(New York, NY) Last Friday, the nominees for the 2012 Good for Her Feminist Porn Awards were announced and Julie Simone was honored five times—for her films “Babes in Bondage 4”, “Julie Simone Is a Dominatrix”, “Submissive Slut”, “Vicious Strap On Bitches” and also for her pay site, www.juliesimone.com. Julie was previously awarded an honorable mention in 2010 for her short film and pro-blowjob PSA "Cocksucker". She will be attending the awards in Toronto April 18-20.

“It's nice to see femdom as a genre finally being accepted as ‘sex positive’, a legitimate sexual fantasy and fetish vs. gender revenge,” says Julie Simone. "Last year they passed me over, so it's vindicating to come back this year with a bang."

Look for Julie later this week at Miss Rubber World in NYC on March 24th where she'll be on the catwalk for KLAWTEX and performing with contestant Lydia Lael of Vengeance Designs. Julie is also currently filming “Dominatrix Diaries”, a reality web series that will air on Blip TV, which features the stories of first time clients and professional Dominatrices—it’s every day people with extraordinary and/or wacky requests that can be humorous and can lead to unexpected adventures. The first episode will air July 9th.

All requests for interviews, appearances, magazine placement and general media inquiries about Julie Simone should be directed to Erika Icon of The Rub PR at erika@therubpr.com.
