‘Adventures with the Baumgartners’ Named Best Polyamory Movie

LOS ANGELESAdam & Eve Pictures’ top-selling movie Adventures with the Baumgartners, the second installment in the acclaimed erotic series based upon the bestselling novels by Selena Kitt, was named Best Polyamory Movie at the 2018 AVN Awards. The series’ opening chapter, Babysitting the Baumgartners, earned the award last year, and in 2016, Marriage 2.0, the controversial film from director Magnus Sullivan, received the same honor.

The AVN Awards, presented January 27 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, honor excellence and outstanding achievement in the adult entertainment industry as well as in adult consumer goods and services.

“I would like to thank Kay Brandt and the cast for bringing Selena Kitt’s erotic novel to the big screen in a memorable way, and AVN for acknowledging their incredible work,” said Rachel Vigneaux, Adam & Eve’s Executive Producer. “Additional thanks go to Selena Kitt for her powerful storytelling and to the team at Adam and Eve for creating a platform in which to share this with the world. Adventures with the Baumgartners struck a chord with fans and critics alike. This film is a great example of Adam & Eve’s commitment to great erotic cinema.”

Directed and adapted to the screen by award-winning filmmaker Kay Brandt, from New York Times bestselling author Selena Kitt’s book from her Baumgartner erotic novels, Adventures with the Baumgartners features adult superstars and real-life married couple Anikka Albrite and Mick Blue. The two performers portray Doc and Carrie Baumgartner, who find lust-filled adventures with their sexy friends.

The cast also includes Sara Luvv, AJ Applegate, Edyn Blair, Katy Kiss, Derrick Pierce, Xander Corvus and Ricky Johnson.

“I'm honored AVN deemed the sequel to Babysitting the Baumgartners award-worthy and I’d like to thank Adam & Eve for their constant support of my work,” Brandt said. “Adapting Selena’s latest book in the Baumgartner franchise for the screen as a five-hour, ten sex scene romantic epic was a massive undertaking, and wouldn't have come to fruition if it wasn't for the strength of my talented cast and crew. Making the Baumgartner movies has been a labor of love, and this award is for the entire team involved with the films.”

With over 13,000 DVDs shipped since its release, Adventures with the Baumgartners is a follow-up to last year’s award-winning Babysitting the Baumgartners, which earned Best Polyamory Movie at the 2017 AVN Awards, was the #1 movie on both adamandevevod.com and hotmovies.com for two consecutive years. The movie also earned First Choice honors at the 2016 NightMoves Awards.
