Shine Louise Houston’s PINK LABEL: Digital Distribution for Emerging & Independent Adult Filmmakers
Houston’s new fair-trade online distribution creates profitable queer-owned streaming hub
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (February 2nd) — Shine Louise Houston is no stranger to independent adult video production. The feminist porn award-winning director and founder of Pink & White Productions, Houston has produced feature films and runs her independent websites with robust membership and affiliate programs, complete with mobile-optimization and live-streaming.
Based in San Francisco, California, Houston’s company boasts a sustainable business model and has experienced increased financial growth through marketing progressive, high-quality pornography to sex-positive viewers hungry for alternative depictions of sex-positive and diverse sexuality.
Following her mission and ethical business practices, Houston’s new project PINK LABEL is a fair-trade digital distribution outlet designed for emerging and independent adult filmmakers. Emerging filmmakers will find enthusiastic audiences and exposure, as well as ethical, fair-trade commission for their work. PINK LABEL presents curated content that showcases acclaimed feminist filmmakers who share Houston’s values.
PINK LABEL offers several notable studios featuring progressive pornography, including Sadie Lune’s Baby You’re Frozen.
Sadie Lune is a multimedia artist, sex worker, pleasure activist and creator of Eleven Tentacles. She has won awards for her films and performances, exhibited explicit whore-positive work in venues from a former Army barracks latrine to the SFMOMA, and shown her cervix internationally (in homage to the great Annie Sprinkle). Her writing on art and sex is published in books and magazines in the United States and Europe such as Bend Over Magazine and $pread. She is featured in “Too Much Pussy,” an explicit documentary directed by Emilie Jouvet about the Queer X Show tour of Europe, and will appear in the upcoming adult comedy Mommy is Coming by Cheryl Dunye.
Baby You’re Frozen is a intensely personal and explicit look at the relationship between virtuality and intimacy; how virtual means facilitate connections of the heart and sex across great distances and time zones, but hinders feelings of closeness through digital obstacles. A raw and real portrayal of coping strategies for long-distance love in the 21st century where Skype sex is the best we get, but making love to a screen never satisfies the need for in-person physical intimacy with all of our senses.
PINK LABEL features progressive porn studios including films by legendary pornographer and artist Annie Sprinkle, star performers-turned star-producers duo Dylan Ryan and Rozen DeBowe of the newly minted Femmerati Productions, queer porn dynamite Trouble Films presenting work by Courtney Trouble and Tina Horn, art porn powerhouse Carlos Batts of C Batts Fly and his muse April Flores, transmale sex education leaders T-Wood Pictures, Harvard-graduate Jennifer Lyon Bell and her exquisite Blue Artichoke Films, Transwomen Porn Project director Tobi Hill-Meyer, Petra Joy, Ms Naughty, Sadie Lune, and the feminist porn award-winning queer films of Shine Louise Houston and Pink & White Productions.
