NEW YORK, NY — Julie Simone wrapped up her time in Toronto at the Feminist Porn Awards by receiving a top honor; 2013 Indie Porn Icon. Although she has received multiple nominations from the FPAs in the past, won an honorable mention for her short film/pro-blowjob PSA Cocksucker, and received an award for Hottest Kink Movie for Vicious Strap-on Bitches in 2012, this was the first time she was an invited guest and asked to speak on a panel.
“I love going to events and showing my films, then doing a Q&A. All the work that screened with mine was top-notch,” says Simone. “Winning this award was a huge surprise and honor. It was truly an amazing moment, made even more amazing when they let me go up on stage and have a voice. Madison Young thanking me for inspiring her own work when she won an award was a touching moment that brought tears to my eyes. I am eternally grateful to Good For Her for giving me these moments I will remember forever. Please support them at www.goodforher.com.”
This weekend, Simone will be headed to the nation’s capital to be the HeadMistress at Bound in DC.
"Bound was the first BDSM club I ever went to," observes Simone. "It used to be a weekly event in DC and we're bringing it back as a monthly party.”
Featuring guest DJs, burlesque acts and other surprises, the event is Friday, April 12 from 9:00 pm - 3:00 am and will take place at Phase 1 at Dupont located at 1415-22nd Street NW in Washington DC. For more information on the event, go to http://Bound.org/.
