’Juicy Pink Box’ opens new world of lesbian porn
Jincy Lumpkin, Esq. was dissatisfied with what lesbian porn there was available to view; which led her to create her own. Called Juicy Pink Box, she takes the genre to a new level -- offering women the opportunity to watch sensual porn made by lesbians, for lesbians in the comfort of their own home. EDGE’s Winnie McCroy spoke to Lumpkin about what she didn’t like about lesbian porn, how she got her company going and what the future has in store.
Blond bimbos in tacky lingerie, leaving lipstick smears and stroking each other with their long acrylic nails: until recently, this "gay-for-pay" lesbian porn is what most women have had to be contented with. But now, thanks to Juicy Pink Box founder Jincy Lumpkin, Esq., women can watch sensual porn made by lesbians, for lesbians in the comfort of their own homes.
"As a lesbian porn watcher, I had few options," said Lumpkin. "There was mainstream gay-for-pay porn, made for men by men, which for a lot of other lesbians was not arousing because it was not real. A second option came later, with the Crash Pad series out of San Francisco. Dyke porn is what they call it, and many lesbians find it too extreme. I wanted something in between, something real yet beautiful and cinematic, and that’s what inspired me to start Juicy Pink Box."
A place to share erotic experiences
As a banking litigation lawyer, Lumpkin said she found her 70-hour work weeks unfulfilling, and the long wait periods between cases frustrating. Single at the time, Lumpkin remembers spending most of her down time amusing her straight male coworkers with stories of her dating exploits. Because she had intended to practice fashion law, she had maintained a fashion blog, but at her coworkers urging, started an anonymous sex blog in 2008.
"There was a surge of interest-it took off in a way the fashion blog had not," said Lumpkin. "I thought that if people wanted to talk about their sex lives on the Internet, I might as well make a space for them to do it."
Lumpkin connected with a network of lesbian sex bloggers and in the fall of 2008, launched Digiromp.com, a social network for women to share their erotic experiences. According to her, the site soon gained worldwide popularity as a space for lesbians, bisexuals, and genderqueer folks to talk about sex. Looking to make her site into a successful business, Lumpkin began toying with the idea of creating porn for women, by women.
"I had it in my mind that I wanted to do porn videos, but as a lawyer, I had no contacts in the porn industry," said Lumpkin. "So I left my law job, and started contacting porn stars through fan sites. In July 2009, I shot my first video series, Taxi, a dozen encounters between women in the back of a cab."
