We wrapped up shooting for our new DVD's last week; now I get to start the editing process. I'm so excited - these shoots were AMAZING, and our talented actresses & actors gave 110% to their work! I wish I could get them all out the door for you tomorrow, but unfortunately, it'll be a while. On the positive side?

Spring is Springing!
Posted By: Tristan March 28th 2009
Hey folks, I just wanted to stop by and tell you all how busy things have been here lately. As you know from my last blog entry, Penny Flame's Expert Guide to Rough Sex is out, and I'm so excited for it (and so are many of you, if the pre-orders are any indication)!

Want to see a preview? Check out the great review and online photo gallery that put up. Some smoking hot pics for sure!

I'm also gearing up for some trips out of town in April; those of you in the Baltimore MD / Washington DC area will get a double-dose, with my Anal Pleasure class at Sugar in Baltimore, MD on April 6, and my rescheduled discussion on "My Life As A Feminist Photographer" on April 7 at Goucher College in Baltimore. New Jersey-ites can catch the same lecture on April 8 at Drew University in Madison, NJ. I'll also be visiting Connecticut, Massachusettes, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Wisconson during April - so there are lots of chances to catch up with me in person!

Finally, for those of you that are fans of Derrick Pierce (who's appeared in a bunch of Vivid and Vivid-Ed titles), there's a brand new fan site on the net just for you - you can find it at . This is a fan run site, so there are plenty of awesome photos of the man himself - which gives you plenty to enjoy!

That's it for now...I'd better start packing!

Penny Flame's Expert Guide to Rough Sex

Expert Guide to Rough Sex

Are you ready for it???
I am so exited to announce that PENNY FLAME'S EXPERT GUIDE TO ROUGH SEX is here!

Penny leads a workshop where she teaches and demonstrates with the help of Mia Lelani. She covers:
• how to communicate, establish consent, and set limits
• which parts of the body can be roughed up and which can’t
• how to choose an effective safeword
• tips for spanking, face slapping, and hair pulling in a safe way
• three different kinds of slapping techniques
• dominant/submissive and psychological roleplay

Then, watch as Penny and Derrick Pierce deliver a compelling performance. No one has ever seen Penny this rough, dirty, and nasty on film. Her fans will be surprised to see her scorching, one of a kind scene. Says Penny: "Although I like it in my personal life with the right person, I've never had rough sex on camera before. I hand-picked Derrick, who I really trust, for my scene. We felt really comfortable, and I went to a place I've never gone before. It's one of the best scenes I've ever shot."

Two other scenes follow hers with an cast that includes:
Lexi Belle, Aiden Starr, Mark Davis, Derrick Pierce, Devin, Mia Lelani and of course Penny Flame!

**Written and Directed by Penny Flame
**Executive Produced by Tristan Taormino

It comes out on April 1, 2009 - you can order it at several stores online including Gamelink! Enjoy it!

Vivid Titles Selected to Screen at 2 International Film Festivals!
Posted By: Sarah February 26th 2009
In case you haven't heard yet, Vivid-Ed's very own Tristan Taormino has had two of her works selected to screen at two very international film festivals this spring!

Her 2007 film, Chemistry 1, is going to be making an appearance at the 10th Annual Red Dawns Feminist & Queer Festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia - it was one of only three films selected by the event's producers for screening at the festival, and will be followed by a discussion of feminist, alternative, and queer porn. Tristan was thrilled with the news: ""It's incredibly groundbreaking for such a festival to exist in Slovenia, and I am so honored to have my movie be a part of it."

A little closer to home is the annual CineKink Film Festival, which runs from February 24 - March 1 in New York, NY. CineKink, which was created in 2003, exists to recognize and encourage the positive depictions of sexuality and kink in television and film, and this year they will be screening an excerpt of Chemistry 3! The organizers selected a scene starring Roxy DeVille - which pleased Tristan immensely, as it's one of her favorites! If you'd like to check out the festival, you can go to their website at

In the next few weeks, we'll have news on a new Vivid-Ed title that hits the streets later this spring, as well as a new Q&A from Tristan herself - so check back soon!

January started off really hectic for me, with a trip out to Los Angeles and then off to Las Vegas for the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo and Awards. Those of you who follow me on Twitter already got the play by play, but I had a great trip overall. Babeland threw a really nice cocktail party and panel on Thursday, and I had a lot of really great meetings at the Vivid booth.

I am so thrilled that The Expert Guide to Oral Sex 2: Fellatio won an AVN Award for Best Educational Release. That was a brand new category for them this year, and I just want to acknowledge all the amazing groundbreaking work that Nina Hartley and Ernest Greene have done to pave the way for other educational videos. In other exciting video news, The Expert Guide to Threesomes has spent two weeks on's bestseller list, jumping from #74 to #32! I plan to spend the rest of the month writing and getting ready for Dark Odyssey, which is only a month away! In case you don't know, Dark Odyssey: Winter Fire is Valentine's Weekend, February 13-15, 2009, in Washington DC, and the numbers are growing everyday. We've confirmed fantastic presenters including Expert Guide director and educator - Penny Flame!
I hope you'll join us there! Remember that the earlier you register, the lower the rate, so sign up now!

Curious about threesomes?
Posted By: Alex ( December 29th 2008

"Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Threesomes" shares the keys to creating a successful threesome in a more humorous and retro style that marks an excellent style departure in the Expert Guide DVD line. Sex educator and relationship expert The DVD is a two-hour, turn-on course about one of the most popular fantasies of all time -- having sex with two partners -- and it is in stores now!

"Threesomes" stars Penny Flame, Harmony, Haileey James, Daisy Marie, India Summer, Christian, Jack Lawrence and Derrick Pierce with a special appearance by Tristan Taormino.
Penny's First Vivid-Ed release!!!!
Posted By: Penny Flame October 1st 2008
[re-posted from]

In a few short days from now, two things will be happening. The release of my very first Vivid-Ed flick, "Penny Flame's Expert Guide to Hand Jobs For Men and Women," and the release of Penny Flame, upon the entire European continent. One will only effect me, the other has the potential to effect every single person who watches it. In that great way only hand jobs do.

When Tristan Taormino came to me asking if I would like a shot at directing for her Vivid-Ed, I jumped at the opportunity. In fact, when she said my first movie should be about handjobs, (because of the lemon juicing technique I used on Tyler Knight in her Chem 4 movie), I started clapping, because hands really are one of the most underrated parts of our bodies when it comes to sex.

For Example. The majority of girls I know, and myself included, have at one point requested that the guys we fuck not play with us with their hands. Like, no fingers in, no clit rubbing. Personally, this is because I always thought it rude of me to ask a guy to go wash his hands so he can play with my pussy. Being a part of this movie, and directing it under Tristan's guidance, really opened me up to the idea that I'm not being rude, I'm just communicating my wants and desires. If he has any, he should communicate them to me as well, and this will ensure that the entire time we are fucking, we are making a conscious decision and effort to please our partner. So even before we start playing, I always wash my hands, and have my guys do the same. Its kind of fun actually, like a little trip to the bathroom where we wash our hands and end up making out and pre-getting it on. Its like a get to know ya moment.

Vivid-Ed wins an Emma Award for Oral Sex Guides
Posted By: Alex ( April 9th 2008
We are so pleased to announce that Vivid-Ed's director Tristan Taormino won top honors at the 3rd Annual Feminist Porn Awards, which took place in Toronto on last Friday, April 4. Nicknamed "The Emmas" in honor of feminist godmother Emma Goldman, the Feminist Porn Awards celebrates erotic directors who have revolutionized porn. The awards are presented by the Canadian retailer, Good For Her, which strives to provide women and their admirers an accessible place with a variety of high quality adult products and workshops.

Out of the twelve awards presented at the ceremony, Taormino received "Smutty Schoolteacher of the Year (Educational Title)" for her two-part Vivid-Ed companion DVDs the "Expert Guide to Oral Sex" (Part 1: Cunnilingus and Part 2: Fellatio).

Written, directed and produced by Taormino, her "Expert Guide" series from the Vivid-Ed imprint offers very explicit advice and techniques to improve sexual pleasure. In her "Expert Guide to Oral Sex" movies, she presents detailed workshops on cunnilingus and fellatio. Each movie showcases a stellar cast, which includes the redheaded siren Justine Joli in Part 1: Cunnilingus and Roxy DeVille and Christian in Part 2: Fellatio. Students learn the proper technique for oral sex and reveal their amazing talents.

"I feel so thrilled and honored to be recognized for the third year in a row by the Feminist Porn Awards," declares Taormino. "Good For Her has truly broken new ground in putting these awards together; this awards show makes history every time it happens. I appreciate my work being recognized both *by* feminists and *as* a feminist. Oh, and this Smutty Schoolteacher believes in Extra Credit!"
Expert Guide to the G-Spot now available!
Posted By: Alex ( April 6th 2008
The fourth installment in the Vivid-Ed is now out! This time we are encouraged to enjoy better sex by learning about the intricacies of the G-spot with the latest DVD, "Expert Guide to the G-spot."

As in the style of the first three "Expert Guides" series director Tristan Taormino leads a G-spot workshop for couples where she reviews female sexual anatomy and offers explicit advice to improve and enhance G-spot stimulation. Co-hosts Sarah and Donna demonstrate various techniques as Tristan narrates what they are doing. Students also learn the proper use of toys and techniques for maximum pleasure.

Taormino is a widely recognized sex education expert, a syndicated newspaper columnist and best-selling author. Her fourth "Expert Guide" installment was written, produced and directed by her. The explicit DVD follows her highly successful "Expert Guide to Anal Sex" and two-part "Expert Guide to Oral Sex" (Part 1: Cunnilingus and Part 2: Fellatio).

Says Taormino, "We cover a lot of ground in this movie, and show a range of G-spot stimulation techniques, including penetration with fingers, dildos, and vibrators, strap-on sex tips, and the best positions to hit the spot during intercourse."

"The female ejaculation scene in the movie is just amazing," she added. "Derrick Pierce and Kylie Worthy have fantastic chemistry. You can tell they are really comfortable with each other. I couldn't believe how much she squirted!"

The stellar cast stars the award-winning Penny Flame, who recently signed to direct her own line of sex education movies for Vivid-Ed. She partners with Evan Stone, while Faith Leon and Alec Knight share steamy, sensual scenes that include a special vibrator with G-spot attachment.

The high-definition movie is the first Vivid-Ed title to be simultaneously released on DVD and Blu-ray. Included are behind-the-scenes features, cast interviews, previews and exclusive mini-features, along with motion menus, scene and chapter selection. And to give you the ultimate control the scenes can be viewed with or without instruction.

Congrats Vivid-Ed and Tristan on yet another excellent addition!
Cunnilingus is Here!
Posted By: Tristan July 4th 2007
I'm so excited that the second Vivid-Ed title ships to stores today! It was so much fun to make, and I am proud to say that it is all pussy eating, all the time! That's right, in the scenes with instruction, we show you explicit techniques for oral sex, and, not surprisingly, the women all come like crazy. The cast is amazing. Justine Joli leads the workshop with Ariel X, and I believe that of all the porn performers working today, Justine is one of the best at doing girls. She just really knows how to give a woman pleasure, and this movie shows off that talent. Ariel X is relatively new to the industry, and she is fantastic: natural, enthusiastic, very real. The first couples' scene is with real-life couple Kelly and Richard Kline, and their connection is so genuine and their heat so palpable that I just love it. Be sure to check out some bonus footage of them in the section called "Playing with Toys," where a glass dildo and the Hitachi Magic Wand make for a very multi-orgasmic Kelly! Then there's Cindy Crawford and Jack Lawrence. Jack just won the 2007 Adultcon Award for his amazing oral skills, and his scene is off the charts. Cindy is vocal, enthusiastic, and super sexy. Plus, their scene opens with Jack shaving her pussy - hot! Justine and Ariel have a bonus girl/girl scene and there is a safer sex mini-feature. For those of you who simply cannot watch a sex scene without seeing the guy come, if you watch the scenes without instruction, the guys get blow jobs and do get off. Can't wait to hear what you all think, so get on the message boards and let me know!

Getting the Perfect Shave
Dear Tristan,

I have a question about pussy shaving. I prefer to have zero hair on my pussy. However, I'm not overly satisfied with the results, and wonder if there is a better way to shave. I use a Venus 3 razor and body wash to shave. But I've discovered that after a couple days, I usually end up with a few red bumps that are like pimples. I also used to shave in an upward motion, but was told that it is better to shave in a downward motion. Is this true? Is there a better razor that I could use? Would some type of cream be better to use rather than body wash? Is there a specific technique to shaving that is more apt to result in a more smooth and softly shaved pussy?

Signed, Bare-ly There Read Tristan's Answer..
