Leading production brand, Alt Erotic, which highlights the talents of some of porn’s most popular tattooed performers, has been honoured with two Fleshbot Awards nominations for 2021 for excellence in the adult film industry.
Movie of the Year
First nomination for Movie of the Year, Alt Erotic received for its groundbreaking feature film, The InkedXXXploitation of Misha Montana. It is a production that has already garnered well-deserved praise as the most personal project in the history of the industry.
Montana, who makes her triumphant onscreen comeback in InkedXXXploitation after suffering a life-changing stroke earlier this year, discusses her formidable journey over the past few months through the reality-style feature.
InkedXXXploitation not only follows Montana as she picks up the pieces of her personal and professional life after the serious health setback, but her first-ever meeting with Ivan, the high-profile ‘butt tattoo’ proposal on the red carpet of this year’s Alt Porn Awards (she said yes!), and her success as a performer, filmmaker and company ambassador as Alt Erotic’s Chief Brand Officer.
“When I got the incredibly exciting news that InkedXXXploitation was nominated for Movie of the Year, I was sobbing with joy. This project means so much to me; it’s a beautiful compilation of everything I’ve done in a year, professionally and personally,” said Montana. “It’s so emotional to me because this isn’t just another adult film, it’s a showcase of my life and my most vulnerable moments.”
“Not only does it highlight the most frightening, devastating moments of my life, but also the happiest, most beautiful parts. Everything you could ever ask for is included in this: heartbreak, health issues, laughing, love and of course half a dozen of some of the best XXX scenes ever produced.”
“I wanted to make this project so that other people struggling with health problems, depression, fear or uncertainty would see that there isn’t anything or anyone that can stop you from living your dreams; this accomplishes that and more. I’m so incredibly honored and grateful to Fleshbot and all of the reviewers for their nomination I can’t say enough how thankful I am for this.”
Best New Male Talent
Joshua Gray, the company’s official male tattoo artist and onscreen performer who goes by Duke Daybreak in Alt Erotic’s Ink Motel series and Dangle Daybreak in Ho Hunters, was also honored with a nod for Best New Male Talent.
“I am so happy to be nominated for Fleshbot Awards’ Best New Male Talent,” said Gray. “ I have worked extremely hard to get to this point in my career, and I want to thank Alt Erotic’s Ivan and Sascha for making Duke Daybreak a reality. I will dedicate myself to bringing comedy and sexy to the adult film industry, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me in the industry. Stay tuned!”
Alt Erotic CEO Ivan, who is InkedXXXploitation’s director as well as Montana’s fiancé, said, “I could not be more proud of these two nominations. Josh has grown as a very funny and dedicated performer. It’s amazingly fun creating for him, because he embraces his character full bore!”
“InkedXXXploitation is a movie I can’t gush over enough; think about all Misha has gone through, from Covid to stroke to heart surgery, and still was so dedicated to be successful that she continued like a champ! This movie took 275 days of blood, sweat and lots of tears to complete. Anyone watching will need two tissues … one for the eyes and the other … well you know!”
Montana added, “I’m so happy that this project has been so well-received, because it truly is a stunning masterpiece. I’m most grateful to Ivan for being my partner in business and life. What he has done with this is unlike anything the industry has ever seen, and his genius and belief in me has made this possible.”
“Thank you to AltErotic Family; Sascha Ink, Evilyn Ink, Marica Hase, Joshua Gray, Johnny Goodluck, Tommy Pistol, John Strong, Ossie and Samantha Mack for being involved in this beloved project. It’s truly an honor to be apart of such an extraordinary team of individuals and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”
