“I am so grateful to AVN for this recognition,” drake enthused. "Making Senior Sex with Joan Price was an incredible learning experience. I thank her for trusting me and taking the leap. Our cast - Bonnie, Joel, Marlene, and Galen - were incredible to work with. Thanks to my awesome crew - Barrett Blade, Rae Threat, Triton, Jenna Valentine, and Jo - for all their hard work and creative efforts. From the first Guide To Wicked Sex, the series has continued to grow and evolve into a truly amazing resource. I’m so very grateful to Wicked Pictures and Wicked Sensual Care for supporting me as an educator and allowing me to create educational content that is so needed in this world. Thank you to Daniel, Adella, and the rest of our team for your hard work and encouragement. It takes a village! Winning this award is a tremendous accomplishment, not only for us as a team, but for people everywhere. It’s my hope that we continue to push back against the idea that sex has an expiration date. Let’s continue this conversation. We deserve pleasure at any age."
“I am thrilled by this award,” co-director Price added. “Making this film with jessica drake was an exhilarating experience. We felt right away that our intentions for this film were completely in sync. Moment by moment, our vision came to life, thanks to the commitment, skill, and brilliance of everyone involved. The resulting film is beautiful, professional, and powerful. The cast shows us the kind of unscripted sex they genuinely enjoy, which is moving, beautiful, and downright sexy! I am deeply grateful to Wicked Pictures, the cast, the crew, and especially the amazing jessica drake. This award feels like a validation of the work I’ve been doing for 15 years: normalizing and celebrating older-age sexuality and educating people about how to enrich their sexual pleasure lifelong. How beautiful to be embraced by the adult industry in this way!”
