Wicked Salutes Women's Equality Day With 'Girlfriends'

LOS ANGELES—Women's Equality Day commemorates August 26, 1920, the day the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified into law, granting women the right to vote. Fittingly, Wicked Pictures is saluting this historic legislative decision's 95th anniversary with the release of Girlfriends, an all-female drama which focuses on a self-actualized woman's success in finding love, happiness and fulfillment. The first lesbian love story in the Wicked Passions romance line, this new release was written and directed by Stormy Daniels.

In the story, small town girl Jamie (Casey Calvert) has made the difficult decision to tell her parents that she is in a same-sex relationship. Unfortunately, her family does not react well to the news and Jamie decides to go to Los Angeles to visit her best friend Sarah (Scarlet Red). Jamie is happy to discover California is far more accepting. Finally able to be happy and at peace, Jamie meets a woman named Pam. As things heat up between Jamie and Pam, Sarah begins acting strange. Is it because Sarah doesn't like Pam, or because she wants to be more than just "girlfriends?"

Co-starring A.J. Applegate, Sasha Heart, August Ames and Lily Cade, Girlfriends is the fourteenth title in the Wicked Passions franchise to be directed by Daniels, who is currently a Best Director (Features) nominee in the 2015 NightMoves Awards.

For his part, Wicked Pictures President and Owner Steve Orenstein couldn't be happier with what Stormy Daniels is doing with this acclaimed series. "We've received great responses to this line, and now, due to the requests from retailers and consumers, Stormy has created a lesbian Wicked Passions release written and shot in the same unique way as our heterosexual Passions titles. I believe fans, reviewers and consumers will all be very pleased with the results."

The high-end DVD release includes a 16×9 widescreen HD feature, three bonus sex scenes, a still gallery, motion menus, trailers and more. And it all comes encased in a stylish O-card showcasing Calvert and Red.

Daniels is currently putting the finishing touches on the most ambitious project of her career—a western. Co-produced by Wicked and Adam & Eve, Wanted features Daniels as well as Wicked contract stars Jessica Drake and Brad Armstrong, 2015 AVN Female Performer of the Year Anikka Albrite, XCritic.com Best Actress Allie Haze, AVN/XRCO award-winner Amber Rayne, AVN Hall of Fame performer Steven St. Croix, and Brendon Miller. It is scheduled to go on sale September 16.
