KacyTgirl.com

Los Angeles, CA – Newcomer trans performer Kacy announced her sponsorship and first ever appearance at the 2016 TEAs.

“I am excited to be making my TEAs debut as well as being a first time sponsor,” said Kacy. “It’s not just about the Awards gala, but also meeting my fans and fellow trans performers at TEA Con and the After Party. This is a great way to boost the recent push I’ve made to take my career to the next level during the next year.”

“I’m excited about Kacy’s potential in the industry and think it’s fantastic she’s chosen to support our show,” said Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. Accompanying Kacy to the TEAs will be XXX Porn Star and Model Jasmeen Lefleur of JasmeenLefleur.com.  “I’m looking forward to seeing the two of them on the red carpet,” added Penn.

In 2015, Kacy made her adult video debut in a scene for Pure-TS.com and it was later included on the “Trannie Blowies 1” compilation. “I was floored when I saw my scene sandwiched between those of industry stars Kylie Maria and Domino Presley,” said Kacy. Since then, she has been keeping busy as a live cam performer, modeling for photoshoots and promoting and creating content for her official website KacyTGirl.com.

The Transgender Erotica Awards, now in its eighth year, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry and its performers. Due to its growing popularity, the TEAs have been expanded into a three day event kicking off with a daytime TEA Con for fans on Saturday, the Awards on Sunday, and the official After Party on Monday.

News of The Semenette® experienced its first viral wave soon after its launch in early 2015, and media attention has not waned about the company’s innovative approach to at-home conception for the LGBT, FTM / trans, disabled, and serodiscordant communities. Global media outlets have also noted The Semenette’s impact on insemination options for couples trying to conceive outside of traditional IVF and “turkey baster” routes.

POPDildo™ is available for purchase directly at http://POPDildo.com/#order-now; North American and international retail partners who carry POP are listed in the site’s FAQ section, which is updated regularly.

TS-Rockdolls.com and Piladyboy.com to Sponsor The TEA Show 2016

tea-upn-print-ad-2016

Los Angeles, CA – For the fifth year in a row, the UP Network’s premier sites, Piladyboy.com and Tempest’s TS-Rockdolls.com, return as sponsors of the TEA Show.

Ernie Ecstatic, Piladyboy site owner and UP Network chief conspirator, says “By sponsoring, our models get a chance to shine brightly and we give back a little to the community.”

The original home of Transpinay temptation, Piladyboy.com has been online and updating weekly since 2007, showcasing the most beautiful ladyboys of the Philippines including such stars as Francine Gurchik, Erika Fox, Tyra, Katrina, and Pauline Diaz, and debuting many models like Hanna Somo, Sophia Sanchez, Sandara Fuentes, and Shannel Marie for the first time on any paysite, in fact over 185 models in all. This year one of our superstars, TS Filipina, has been nominated for best solo site while she continues to work with Piladyboy.

To say TS-Rockdolls is unique is an understatement. Tempest generates excitement and stirs lust, imagination and chaos in equal proportions. If your tastes run to the extremes of a psychedelic supernova blasting away at the worn fabric of a commonplace existence, if you long to experience sexual overload and inexhaustible passion, if you idea of making love is stealing kisses from the Devil while boning an angel of the apocalypse, then TS-Rockdolls might just be for you. Tempest is proud to sponsor the TEA Show for the fifth time, but she warns “I love ya…so this might hurt a little.”

The UP Network also provides design, hosting, and production for the adult market, and Ernie Ecstatic has been nominated once again for best photographer for his work with Tiffany Starr, Tasha Jones, Tempest, Nikki Montero, and many other top trans performers, for which he is very grateful.

“Sponsoring the TEA Show gives us a chance to represent our sites and our design and production services,” says Ernie, “while sponsoring the most outstanding annual event in transgender eroticism.”

The Transgender Erotica Awards, now in its eighth year, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry and its performers. Due to its growing popularity, the TEAs have been expanded into a three day event kicking off with a daytime TEA Con for fans on Saturday, the Awards on Sunday, and the official After Party on Monday.

Morpheous’ work is archived in the Sexual Representation Collection of the University of Toronto’s Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, at the Leather Archives and Museum in Chicago, and at the National Archives of Canada.

Morpheous has taught a variety of workshops on rope bondage, the aesthetics of bondage, fetish photography, advanced and beginner BDSM, and workshops catered to professional dominants and submissives. He travels and presents regularly, doing outreach to both academic and kink-aware safer sex organizations as well as performing in ropebondage expos the world over.

He is also the founder of Morpheous’ Bondage Extravaganza, an annual rope bondage art installation that has grown over the years into the world’s largest public rope bondage event, with upwards of 6000 events across three cities with 75,000 more watching online.
