For Immediate Release | Wicked Congratulates Distribution Partners Dorcel, abbywinters.com, And JoyBear Pictures On Their 2018 AVN Nominations

LOS ANGELES, CA – (December 1, 2017) – Wicked Pictures, the exclusive U.S. DVD distributor for internationally renowned adult studios Dorcel, abbywinters.com, and JoyBear Pictures, is pleased to announce these three distinctive adult entertainment innovators have received over twenty 2018 AVN Awards nominations.

A member of the AVN Hall of Fame who has been active in erotica since 1965, producer/director Marc Dorcel's namesake company received sixteen major nominations, with four going to the studio's sensual big-budget mystery Revenge of a Daughter. A stylish collaboration from veteran directors Herve Bodilis and Pascal Lucas, this blockbuster release was honored with nominations for Best Foreign Feature, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography, while the gifted filmmakers shared a nomination for Best Director-Foreign Feature.

Lisette Bailey earned Best Director-Foreign Feature for My Daughter-In-Law is a Whore, a brisk drama which was also recognized in the Best Foreign Feature and Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production categories, the latter for a masterful sequence featuring Cara Saint Germain, Dean Van Damme, Luke Hardy, and Pascal White. Another erotic opus from Herve Bodilis, The Perverse Games of a Posh Wife starring longtime Dorcel favorite Anna Polina, received a Best Foreign Feature nomination.

In the all-sex categories, Anissa Kate's Anissa The Tenniswoman earned Frank Major a Best Director Foreign Non-Feature nomination, while the film's centerpiece, a three-way featuring Amirah Adara, Max Fonda, and Zack, was nominated for Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production. Major's The Fighter snared Nikita Bellucci and Renato a Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production nomination, and Herve Bodilis' Claire - Desires of Submission earned Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production recognition for stars Claire Castel, Kristof Cale, Math & Ricky Mancini.

Herve Bodilis received a Best Director - Foreign Non-Feature nomination for his all-sex opus Megan - Escort Deluxe, which also earned stars Megan Rain, Kristof Cale and Ricky Mancini attention in the Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production category. In non-DVD categories, the studio's provocative entry into sexual tech, Dorcel Lab, was nominated for Best Marketing Campaign-Individual Project, while dorcelstore.com was recognized in the Best Web Retail Store category.

Specializing in naturalistic depictions of lesbian, solo, and boy/girl sex acts, abbywinters.com has established itself as a pioneer in placing models in a wide spectrum of intimate and unscripted “real world” scenarios. Girls and Their Boys 29 and Lascivious Girls both earned Best Amateur/Pro-Am Movie nominations, while the Girl Girl Sex and Girls and Their Boys franchises were nominated for Best Foreign Series.

Acclaimed U.K. based adult studio JoyBear Pictures' big-budget release Sun Stroke received two major nominations, Best Foreign Feature and Best Director-Foreign Feature for filmmaker Jessie Black.

For his part, Wicked Pictures President and Owner Steve Orenstein couldn't be happier to see the work of these trailblazing innovators enjoy continued success in the United States. "The addition of these high-quality movies to our major distribution arteries reflects our desire to give retailers and consumers a diverse range of international adult entertainment options. We are thankful to AVN for recognizing the excellence of these releases, and congratulate Dorcel, abbywinters.com and JoyBear Pictures on their nominations. I hope to continue working with all of these studios for many years to come."
