Dubbed "The Porn Entrepreneur Next Door" by Forbes, Wicked contract actress, writer, director, global humanitarian and sex educator jessica drake is an advocate for inclusion. "My passion comes from personal experience," the three-time AVN Best Actress winner reveals, "from the idea we are all connected."
For the 2018 awards season, she is recognized for creating big budget couples features with contract director Brad Armstrong — she's an AVN and XBIZ Best Actress nominee for his blockbuster An Inconvenient Mistress — while communicating her message of acceptance and inclusion through educational DVDs and instructional seminars. She is also hosting the 2018 XBIZ Awards.
jessica drake's Guide to Wicked Sex was initially inspired by her experiences and observations as one of the adult industry’s legendary Wicked Girls. “In my time with the company I had definitely noticed a shift in our target demographic,” she says of her impetus to enter the field of sex education. “The lines at our store signings and convention appearances had evolved dramatically. Where you’d once seen mostly men, there were now couples and women looking to you for guidance. I’m honored to have the opportunity to help.” Through her informative DVDs and live appearances, jessica unites a lifetime of study with a decade’s worth of experiential and accredited research. For 2018, jessica’s activism and outreach have been honored with mainstream crossover nominations from both AVN and XBIZ.
Her advocacy also powers the 2018 award-nominated performer showscase jessica drake is Wicked, a voyage through human sexuality which transcends the boundaries of mainstream erotica. jessica explores fluidity in perceived gender norms and sexual preferences, demonstrating without reservation that sexuality, and its expression, is limitless and beautiful. This cinematic tour de force has proven transformative not only for its star but for the genre as a whole, with industry press and mainstream media outlets alike noting the movie’s rich and varied vignettes include a transgender scene pairing the Wicked Girl with trans superstars Venus Lux, Aubrey Kate, and Domino Presley.
jessica looks forward to another transformational year as she lives and grows in an industry she loves. “Ultimately, I am grateful to Brad and Wicked for giving me the chance to bring my dreams and fantasies to life. And, most of all, I'm grateful to them for recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion.”
