Leading trans-erotica studio, TransSensual and director Dana Vespoli break new ground, announcing their first-ever FTM star showcase: “Buck Angel Superstar.”
Dana Vespoli directs pioneering FTM performer Buck Angel in star showcase.
Slated for release June 21st, the showcase offers fans more than just a collection of scenes starring pioneering FTM trans performer Buck Angel.
Those unfamiliar with Buck Angel — an AVN Hall of Famer who has been in the adult industry since 2004 — will find themselves captivated when they meet this unique, funny and passionate advocate for trans rights and sex-positive attitudes.
Under Vespoli’s inspired direction, Angel is presented in a new light, performing in four hardcore encounters with TS stars Aubrey Kate, Chanel Santini, Tori Mayes and Mandy Mitchell. Beyond the eroticism, Vespoli turns this film into an intimate exploration of Angel’s life, portraying not only his sexual encounters as a TS superstar but also the ways in which his fame takes a toll on emotional connections.
Buck Angel said of his experience, “Working with Dana Vespoli and her TransSensual crew on this project was like working on a well-crafted mainstream film. The concept was so unique I could not say no. I love pushing boundaries and taking pornography to new highs. Porn and erotica are looked down upon and not seen as a form of art. These kinds of films will change that. It was an honor to be a part of it.”
Dana Vespoli also expressed her excitement over the project. “Buck Angel is an amazing performer and an amazing human being, period. I had the opportunity to make something unique and original—something that didn’t follow in the pattern of a typical studio title theme, so I decided to focus on something unique to Buck.”
“One thing that stood out to me, since I follow Buck on social media, is the extent of his traveling,” Vespoli explained. “He is constantly traveling to do public speaking engagements, and he travels all over the world. If he is not in Japan he is in Israel, or Australia, or Amsterdam—it goes on and on. Buck is a celebrity—an icon who transcends his genre.
I thought about what it means to be a celebrity, and to represent so much to other people. I am fascinated by the irony of being lonely in a crowded room and the feeling of isolation that comes from being wanted by so many people.
Buck Angel Superstar explores those feelings, as we follow Buck through various jet-lagged encounters, as he searches for connection. Buck had wonderful partners to work with: Aubrey Kate, Mandy Mitchell, Chanel Santini and Tori Mayes. Each of these ladies brought so much passion to their scenes.”
TransSensual deviates from the typical TS porn genre, producing trans-positive erotica with passionate sex and taboo story lines. TransSensual highlights the most stunning TS performers lead by awarded directors Nica Noelle and Dana Vespoli. TransSensual is the winner of TEA 2016 Best DVD Release for “My TS Student” and recipient of 5 2016 Transgender Film Festival awards including Best DVD for “Aubrey Kate’s TS Fantasies.”
