LOS ANGELES—Assence Films, a Best New Studio nominee for the 2013 AVN Awards, has reached a mini-milestone: its strongest-selling series, Anal Artists, will see its fifth installment in May.

Anal Artists has always been our number-one-selling series. These titles pack some of the hottest talent, who exhibit raw sexual energy, and we see consistent sales and reorders on this series,” said Assence owner Mike Kulich.

The first Anal Artists release featured a previously unreleased scene starring retired adult star Sasha Grey, which helped push Assence Films into the spotlight. At the time Grey's participation in a volunteer reading program generated a wave of publicity. Assence surfed along with an offer to make its own donation to the program, which was covered by various media outlets, including TMZ and Huffington Post.

The fifth installment of Anal Artists features busty Russian Maya Hills on the cover. The other performers are Luscious Lopez, Aliza, Chloe Morgan and Georgia. The DVD also includes a cum shot reel, a trailer reel, and a photo gallery.

Anal Artists 5 is slated to ship at the end of May.

Assence Films is distributed by Exile Distribution. For sales inquires, email Howard Levine at howard@exiledist.com.
