Trans Positive Adult Site Launches Under TroubleFilms Banner, headed by filmmaker Tobi Hill-Meyer and featuring hardcore adult cinema featuring a trans woman in every scene, launched today on the TroubleFilms network. The site is a collaboration between Handbasket Productions and Trouble Films that offers trans female focused content by Hill-Meyer and site and affiliate direction by Courtney Trouble.

Signups during the launch special lock in a permanent price of $15 a month. After the special ends, sign-ups will cost $23 initially, dropping to $18 per month with steep discounts for six month memberships. The affiliate program offers 30 percent commission.

DoingItOnline.Com joins other TroubleFilms sites, including QueerPornTV, Indie Porn Revolution, and FTMFucker. Its release comes hot on the heels of the first DVD in the Trans Grrrls film series, which won a Feminist Porn Award this year.

“In the media lately, it seems like everyone gets to have their say about trans women’s sexuality,” said Hill-Meyer. “Everyone except trans women themselves. Doing It Online seeks to change that dynamic.” 

Featuring well-known trans women performers like Drew Deveaux, Hayley Fingersmith, Maya Mayhem and Hill-Meyer, updates throughout the summer and fall will also showcase Jiz Lee, Kimberly Kills, Chelsea Poe, Chance Armstrong and Kelli Lox.

The original inspiration for the site was a small closed internet forum where trans women shared nude photography of themselves in a body positive and supportive environment, creating a powerful and positive effect in the lives of many trans women. In 2007, Hill-Meyer, working in collaboration with a number of trans women from that community, decided to take it a step further and make indie porn. It took three years for that plan to come to fruition with the release of Doing it Ourselves: The Trans Women Porn Project, which earned Hill-Meyer the Feminist Porn Award for Emerging Filmmaker of the year. In 2012, work was begun on the sequel, Doing It Again, which aimed to mix documentary with adult content. With a highly successful kickstarter campaign, Doing it Again became a three volume episodic series, and won another Feminist Porn Award this year. However, the enthusiastic response to the 2012 casting call for Doing It Again, with over 100 people from six different countries responding, made it clear that the need for accurate and honest representations of trans women’s sexuality was bigger than the scope of that project. Doing it Online was conceived to fill that space, a membership site that would house the entire Doing it series as well as create a sustainable income source to fund further updates.

Hill-Meyer added that while the site features adult content, it’s about a lot more, explaining,  “Stereotypes and prejudices around trans women's sexuality influence public policy, access to healthcare, workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, 'trans-panic' defenses in murder trials, and so much more. Trans women are alternately portrayed as hypersexual, deceptive and predatory, or portrayed as desexualized and pathetic. The goal of this project is to create depictions of real humanity and allow trans women to take control over how their sexuality is portrayed."

Courtney Trouble, producer at TroubleFilms, added, "Doing It Online offers up true stories of love and desire, untainted by the usual tropes and stereotypes placed on trans bodies and trans relationships. I love that this project goes beyond hot scenes, and plays with the concept that love and relationship dynamics can be a part of sexual fantasy. Queer folks don't get a whole lot of realistic and positive stories written about them, and trans women even less so. This website is providing a window into the lives of trans women in a way that we just simply don't get to see in mainstream media or porn, mainstream or even queer. We’re humbled and grateful to have Tobi heading this site under our banner as a creative and thoughtful director, who always looks for something deeper than bodies rubbing together. Her work is arousing and inspiring.”

Trouble also cited the success of James Darling’s project FTMFucker, saying that after two years it’s as successful as the twelve year old indie porn revolution.

“I have every confidence that Doing It Online will achieve fantastic and similar success," added Trouble. "It’s a project whose time has come.”
