For Immediate Release | On Women And Their Elegance: Marc Dorcel Celebrates 2018 Awards Sweep With The 6-Disc Anthology 'Dorcel's Elite Women Of Paris'

LOS ANGELES, CA USA / PARIS, FRANCE - (February 23, 2018) - Canoga Park-based adult entertainment studio Wicked Pictures is pleased to congratulate European production powerhouse Marc Dorcel on its 2018 AVN and XBIZ Awards success. The Paris-based studio received nearly half a dozen major awards recognizing the high-end technical sheen and captivating eroticism of its films. Having served as the imprint's exclusive U.S. distributor for over twenty years, Wicked is pleased to join Dorcel in announcing the release of Dorcel's Elite Women Of Paris, a deluxe, career-spanning six DVD collector's set spotlighting the erotic evolution of Europe's most acclaimed adult studio.

Women and their elegance have been at the heart of the Marc Dorcel universe since its founding in 1979. In that time, the portrayal of their starlets has increasingly gained a feminist perspective. The evolution of this consciousness can be seen throughout this sprawling box set, as the rich women of yesteryear, patiently waiting for their husbands to return their mansions, become the strong, independent and forward-thinking ladies of today who take full control of their desires - and their lives.

With a running time of over 11 hours, Dorcel's Elite Women Of Paris boasts over forty scenes of XXX-rated erotica showcasing Europe's finest talent. Anna Polina, Clare Castel, Aleska Diamond, Anissa Kate, Manon Martin, Jessie Volt and Simony Diamond are just a few of the self-actualized women showcased in these highlights from every phase of the Dorcel canon. Each disc is carefully themed to reflect the distinct erotic scenarios which have made the Dorcel imprint the gold standard in continental adult entertainment.

The release of this epoch-defining collection comes at a time of unparalleled success for the studio. Revenge of a Daughter from directors Hervé Bodilis and Pascal Lucas earned the 2018 XBIZ Award for Foreign Feature Release of the Year, while the Dorcel brand's 2018 AVN Awards sweep included trophies for Best Foreign Non-Feature (Anissa The Tenniswoman), Best Director – Foreign Non-Feature (Hervé Bodilis, Megan Escort Deluxe) Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production (Claire Castel, Kristof Cale, Math & Ricky Mancini, Claire Desires of Submission), and Best Director - Foreign Feature (Hervé Bodilis & Pascal Lucas, Revenge of a Daughter).

In a prepared statement, CEO Gregory Dorcel was quick to express his gratitude to these respected industry trade organizations. "I am very honored that we won so many prizes that not only reward our efforts in terms of production, but also the universal values of pleasure that we work hard on sharing with as many people as possible, and that reach women as well as men. We are very committed to giving the best to our audience, which deserves to have access to high-quality content. We are happy these efforts have once again been rewarded."

Dorcel's Elite Women Of Paris is now in stores nationwide.
