Introducing Ava LaPrima


Welcome CrashPad’s new Director Ava LaPrima!

CrashPad creator and founder Shine Louise Houston has “passed the keys” to the CrashPad — figuratively and literally — to filmmaker Ava LaPrima!

Ava has worked closely with Shine for over seven years as CrashPad’s Second Camera. San Francisco-born and -raised, a technically trained filmmaker, and a trans woman of color with several years of on-set porn experience. Ava knows the CrashPad and its community inside and out. You’ve got this, Ava!


With a handful of upcoming CrashPad episodes under her belt, Ava has already began to add her artistry to the set with a shift in the natural lighting of the white box location, emphasizing the spacious studio with splashes of color to introduce a new season of queer porn.

“CrashPadSeries reflects the unique identity of sex and sexuality characterized by San Francisco. It’s a privilege belonging to a rich history which celebrates individual freedom with pride. CrashPad will continue to provide a special place for individual safety, respect, and dignity for all who join us in the studio and to be a portal of joy and pleasure for our unique audience around the world.” ~ Ava LaPrima
