Troublefilms is owned by Courtney Trouble and run by Courtney, Chelsea Poe, and a range of porn artists.


TROUBLEfilms essentially started in 2002 when the first scenes of NoFauxxx Roulette and first photos for were devised and shot by Courtney Trouble, a queer fat non-binary sex worker working on the West Coast. The name “TROUBLEfilms” didn’t come around until 2011, when Live Sex Show became the first self-published DVD for TROUBLE and a logo needed to be made. NoFauxxx.Com and QueerPorn.TV had found their official umbrella. Since then TROUBLEfilms has produced hundreds of individual scenes and almost 50 full-length films and featurettes by a range of film makers, all of them porn performers themselves. TROUBLEfilms is proudly owned and operated by trans and non-binary sex workers, and in 2018 launched a content creator collective to make multiple catalogues of performe-produced work on the platform.

Looking to work with TROUBLEfilms? We currently buy photosets and videos for syndication on our sites. If you’ve got content you would like us to consider, please get in touch! xxxtroublefilms at Our current offers are $100 for a photoset (50+ exclusive images) or $400 for a completed video (non-exclusive rights, so you can keep syndicating it anywhere else you like). We also make content trade with local models in the Bay Area, get in touch if you want to collaborate on some fetish work with us. We are even available for hire, if you would like Courtney and Chelsea to help you shoot your own exclusive work. Just let us know what you’re hoping to do with TROUBLEfilms, as we are open to fresh ideas. We are currently unable to fund exclusive video productions, and do not have our own “studio” so we aren’t able to cast anyone for exclusive work – but we hope to open back up to that work when COVID-19 is in the past.
