VENICE, Calif.—The premiere release from transsexual superstar Venus Lux’s new production company will be available for pre-order beginning this Friday.
The move to put out her own DVDs could prove to be a breakthrough moment for the transsexual genre since Venus is one of its biggest stars in recent years and all of her projects to date have been wildly successful. Her scenes are consistently recognized as some of the industry’s hottest, her website and cam shows are smash hits, her weekly column is a must-read and she is one of the most successful mainstream crossover performers in the adult industry today.
Titled Venus Lux: Fantasies, the DVD will street Dec. 13. Pre-orders will begin Black Friday and continue through the release date on luxgalleria.com. She plans to continue releasing one DVD a month.
“They will feature me with men, women and TS performers,” she said. “I’ll have some of the biggest names in the industry and I’ll be shooting super sexy gonzo scenes.”
Besides gonzo, Venus will also be shooting fetish scenes and parodies. She will do her own distribution to brick and mortar stores, online retailers, video on demand, luxgalleria.com and her website, Venus-Lux.com.
Last week the nominees were announced for the 2014 XBIZ Awards and Venus earned seven nominations, including Transsexual Performer of the Year. She also received nominations for Transsexual Site of the Year for www.Venus-Lux.com, and starred in five titles that are up for Transsexual Release of the Year: Transsexual Cheerleaders 11 (Devil’s Film); The Next She-Male Idol 5 (Joey Silvera/Evil Angel); Shemale Strokers 59 (Mancini Productions); America’s Next Top Tranny 17 (Devil’s Film); and Transsexual Prostitutes 72 (Devil’s Film).
