Elegant Angel

Elegant Angel is one of the best-known and most successful mainstream porn studios. They do not, by any means, produce feminist porn. Most of their products are "all sex", "gonzo" videos that have all the problems we have elsewhere decried. However, in 2011 and 2012, they released two movies directed by Graham Travis that were very widely acclaimed: Portrait of a Call Girl, which won the 2012 AVN Award for Best Feature, and Wasteland, which won the 2013 AVN Award for Best Movie (the first year that award was given). Both these movies have been highly praised by people whose opinions we respect, so it seemed worth our while to review them.

This is definitely a case, then, of our reviewing porn from a feminist point of view, rather than our reviewing feminist porn.
