Adult video review website XCritic.com has published a list of its top ten female porn directors.

"Whenever we heard anyone talk about female directors it was always Candida Royalle," said XCritic editor Chris Thorne. "Royalle is the godmother for female porn, but we felt a need to raise the awareness of an entire new generation of dynamic female porn directors."

Vivid-Ed director Tristan Taormino tops the list, followed by Digital Playground's Celeste, Belladonna, Stormy Daniels, Kimberly Kane, Diana Devoe, Jayme Waxman, Mason, Royalle and Suze Randall.

Joanna Angel, Ashley Blue, Dana Dearmond, Teravision's Aunt Gertrude, and the women of AbbyWinters received honorable mentions as directors to watch in the future.
