LOS ANGELES

"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 showmakes 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!"
