“Strap-on is my favorite fetish and we really went all out with Prostate Assassins,” noted SSF co-owner and director Dee Severe. “In one scene, Chris actually gets pegged with an 18” dildo while running on a treadmill! Everybody worked really hard on this DVD and we are honored to have it be recognized by both AVN and XBIZ.

“I was humbled when Severe Society put my name in the title of the DVD,” added Chris. “Then pleasantly surprised to get nominated for two AVN awards! The scenes we shot were fun, hard work and crazy, so to be recognized by the industry is great affirmation of our hard work.”
