Reseda, Calif. — Girlfriends Films set a historic record at the 2012 AVN Awards. AVN voters named Women Seeking Women the Best All-Girl Series for the fifth straight year.

For ‘Women Seeking Women’ to dominate award shows and sales charts the way it has over the past decade is an extraordinary achievement, which we are very proud of. Every fan who has ever purchased a copy of the series and every performer who has ever appeared in it also deserve to share in this great accomplishment.”
