About CrashPadSeries

The Origin Story

The Crash Pad DVD CoverThe Crash Pad is a secret apartment in San Francisco dedicated to hot, queer sex.

Thanks to the voyeuristic supervision of the Keymaster — played by creator Shine Louise Houston — the lube never runs out, the sheets are always clean (no matter how much you soaked them the night before), and your wildest fantasies can come true. The only rule? You need a Key to get in, and once you’ve used it seven times, you have to pass it on.

This is your Key to the Crash Pad. Stick it in.

A Brief History of Our Queer Porn

In 2005, Shine Louise Houston quit her day job to start a porn company (Pink and White Productions) and direct her debut film, The Crash Pad which won the Feminist Porn Award’s “Hottest Dyke Sex Scene” and became an instant cult classic.

She soon launched CrashPadSeries.com in response to the film’s growing interest as LGBTQ+ audiences hungered for more queer porn episodes reflecting our own experiences and desires.

CrashPad now showcases over 340 episodes and exclusive behind the scenes interviews, creating a space where LGBTQ+ adult film performers can share their sexuality in an environment that is inclusive, professional, and fun.

In 2022, after 15 years of directing, Shine has handed the role of director to Ava LaPrima. Welcome Ava!

A Voyeur with a Production Company

Pink and White Productions creates adult entertainment that exposes the complexities of queer sexual desire. Taking inspiration from many different sources, Pink and White is dedicated to producing sexy and exciting images that reflect today’s blurred gender lines and fluid sexualities.

As founder and director of Pink and White Productions, Shine Louise Houston has always had unique vision. Graduating from San Francisco Arts Institute with a Bachelors in Fine Art Film, her works have become the new gold standard of adult cinema. During a five year position at the women-owned, sex toy purveyor Good Vibrations, Shine recognized an underserved demand for an alternative to mainstream pornography, and began to create well-crafted queer made porn. Shine’s films have been recognized among the next big wave of women-produced porn and have been internationally screened from Amsterdam to New Zealand.

Behind the Scenes

“I believe there’s a lot of room and need to create adult content that’s real, that’s respectful and powerful… I think it’s the perfect place to become political. It’s a place where money, sex, media, and ethics converge.” – Shine Louise Houston

Casting

CrashPad has long been recognized by lesbians as a dyke porn site, although much like a reflection of queer women’s community, we feature people of many genders and sexualities — as well as diverse ethnicities, body types and abilities, ages, and experiences.

Browsing our Stars page, you’ll find performers of many genders (cis, trans, non-binary, and other genders); performers who are femme, butch, and other expressions; people of color; people with disabilities; people who are fat, thin, athletic, and other body types; people aged 18 to 61; people with and without tattoos or piercings; and more.

Casting priority is placed upon Bay Area-based couples and crushes. If you don’t see yourself represented… we encourage you to apply!

Performer Agency and Consent

We collaborate with performers to show how they’d like to be presented. Our cast calls the shots (whether there’s a plot or not), and negotiates boundaries prior to filming. If you see a sex act on the site, it’s because the performers wanted to do it and the crew consented to film it.

Company Policy: The opinions and beliefs expressed by the people who have appeared on our site are their own and do not reflect those of Pink and White Productions or our crew. Pink and White Productions is not responsible for performers’ actions offset. As an entertainment company, our standards while on set include respectful conduct, sobriety (performers are not permitted to shoot if intoxicated), and the understanding that emotional and physical boundaries — including safer sex arrangements — are communicated and respected by all participants.

Sexual Health

There are three key components of sexual health: Barriers, Testing, and Communication.

Safer sex is consensual and risk aware. We encourage industry standard STI testing within 14 days of the shoot and the use of barriers. We also recognize that many performers are fluid-bonded partners and are capable of assessing their own sexual health needs. As such, performers have the right to perform as feels safest and most comfortable to them, and are responsible for their own sexual health. See our Sexual Health and Resources page for more information.

Our Official Safer Sex Sponsor Good Vibrations keeps us stocked with supplies from latex and non-latex condoms, gloves, dams, and lots of lube. Performers are welcome to bring their own toys and barriers.

Equal Pay

We pay performers an equal rate regardless of gender, race, body type, age, ability, experience, and even what kind of sensual or sexual activity is done on camera. Performers do not have to be naked if they do not want to.

Our current rate is $500 per person for 2 hours maximum time on set from start to finish, either 11am-1pm or 2-4pm). Scenes are shot for generally 30-45 minutes.

Performers receive a lifetime membership to CrashPadSeries.com, and have the option to sign up for 40% commission from our Affiliate Program, to earn ongoing payment from past shoots. Some performers make as much as $50-100/month promoting their episodes.
