I’ve always felt that naming a Mainstream Favorite is like those movies where the protagonist forsakes his true friends—the misfits!—for the cool kids who have always been mean to him, and will be again.
This year’s XRCO Awards were a great fun time; a perfect encapsulation of the misplaced resentment, earnest good will, limited attention span, dark humor, poor planning, and uncalibrated sense of history that Porn Valley’s 4-decades-old adult industry is known for.
Ridiculously mismanaged award shows are the comfort food of the porn industry.
Kayden Kross and Dylan Ryder will host the 2012 XRCO Awards, a porn industry-only event, on April 9
Nina Hartley, meanwhile, gave a very-present Evan Stone his Best Actor trophy, and they groped each other for a good minute while I stood by, alone, waiting for my chance to do things to Kane that would make the Kama Sutra curl up and explode.

I was a voter for tonight’s X-Rated Critics’ Organization (XRCO) Awards, and I look forward to seeing (from afar, alas, I will be in another state) if I picked the right whores to win, place, and show. This is the 25th annual XRCO event, open only to industry members by a process involving scent recognition […]
When Digital Playground adapted Disney’s theme park ride-turned-movie series Pirates of the Caribbean into the Pirates pornos, few thought the adult versions would be so successful. But now that the Pirates of the Caribbean series is over, Digital Playground has set its sites on a comic book adaptation, Crotchmen. “We wanted to go darker,” said […]
A few years ago, the adult video industry’s connection with upstart XBiz was tenuous; Hustler and Vivid did not play ball with AVN’s rival, and only Digital Playground seemed to see the value in advertising with the magazine. But that has changed, and now both AVN and XBiz draw from the same pool of advertisers […]
Buck Adams, 52, a porn actor and director, was remembered yesterday at a service falling on what would have been his 53rd birthday. He died October 28 in Northridge in the San Fernando Valley following a decade of heart ailments. Adams was a member of the Halls of Fame of both Adult Video News and […]
“Beyond courage, beyond honor, we find our hearts and minds.” Thus begins the boxcover copy for New Sensations’ sequel to Hearts & Minds, starring Ashlynn Brooke and Tommy Gunn and which looks to be a cross between Blackhawk Down, Coming Home, and Big-Titted Teens. There is an adult industry term for the type of porno […]
Flower Tucci reclines in a pool of her own and others’ natural spendings in a scene from The Violation of Flower Tucci. She has appeared on a television show complaining of her daughter’s lesbianism when the female audience attacks her and makes Flower a lesbian. What?
