Adriana Chechik’s AVN Glory

“I honestly thought it was a lost cause,” 2017 AVN Female Performer of the Year winner Adriana Chechik told AVN after receiving her trophy. After nominations for the title in 2015 and 2016, 2017 proved to finally be the year the gloriously accommodating anal queen truly hit the big time.

“I put in 92 scenes this year and it’s really awesome to know that those counted and were more than just the feelings and gratification I got from it,” said the 25-year-old with the “nastiest holes in porn, adding “I’m just so happy.” And why shouldn’t she be? Not only did Chechik take home the most prized AVN Award of all, she was also honored for Best Oral Sex Scene for her Evil Angel showcase, The Ultimate Slut, and for Most Outrageous Sex Scene for her turn with Holly Hendrix and Markus Dupree in ‘Creamy Bottom Fun Ball Happy Time’ from Holly Hendrix’s Anal Experience (Evil Angel). Hendrix did pretty well herself, also scoring the Best New Starlet award.

Last year’s Male Performer of the Year winner, Mick Blue, continued to wow audiences and industry members with his class, gentlemanly demeanor, and awesome sexual skills, taking home his third consecutive award. Blue thanked in his speech Anikka Albrite, his wife of three years, for turning his life around and being “the most amazing, loving woman you can just imagine.” Hey, since she’s cool with him giving Kendra “Library Girl” Sunderland a right good rogering in this year’s Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene (My Friend’s Daughter for Vixen), I’m inclined to agree with him!

If you’re wondering what’s next for this pair of ultra-accomplished porn superstars, Mick’s continuing his excellent work with BAM Visions while Adriana’s getting even dirtier (if you can imagine that) with Pierre Woodman. Whether that’ll cement her as porn’s brightest and boldest talent or have her run out of town due to excessive, truly degenerate deviancy remains to be seen, but I’m happy to keep a close eye on her progress and report back to you, dear readers, as necessary.

Evil Angel review

Adult Empire’s 2016 Swipe Right

Come late-December, every media outlet scrambles to assemble some short-sighted year-end review and adult entertainment is no different than any other industry. Adult Empire, one of the few indispensable outlets of porn-related news and knowledge, also released its annual report of porn trends and highlighted a few developments we at Mr. Pink’s have also been reporting on.

Adult Empire Best of 2016

Adult Empire’s report, 2016: The Best of the Best, details fan-favorite performers, and both home video and Video-On-Demand releases while a second report, 2016: Top Trends on AE, lists the top top trending pornstars, DVD genres, studios, and adult search terms. Among the clear winners were many acclaimed stars and studios – Julia Ann and Alexis Texas; gonzo and anal porn; Evil Angel and Wicked Pictures, for example – as well as a few more recent trends. Interracial sex and fucking a “family” member both came out of 2016 more popular than ever with Greg Lansky’s Blacked and fetish performer Jodi West trending hard in their respective categories. Blacked and Tushy, Lansky’s anal series, also cleaned up in the DVD and VOD departments, though it’s the latter viewing platform that is attracting viewers of more varied taste. (Trans, lesbian, and European titles occupy more top slots in VOD than in physical sales.)

Romantic erotic hardcore with artful cinematography also proved a itself a strong-selling niche this year, as Adult Empire’s rankings show. The Submission of Emma Marx: Exposed, a BDSM-heavy feature from New Sensations tied with Blacked’s Interracial Orgies as DVD title with the longest reign at #1 – five weeks while also tying for first place in the VOD report.

What do these notable trends of last year mean for adult entertainment in 2017? That is still a little murky if you go by AE’s twin reports. There’s no mention of 4K, UHD, VR, or 3D as trending search terms and Camille Adore isn’t exactly roaring up the most-searched-for pornstar listings (not yet), but those things seemed certain to be huge in the new year. Are the pollsters wrong about this, too? Will porn viewers really ignore all the latest techno-trends and continue selecting their porn for its (gasp) content? Only time (and future Adult Empire reports) will tell.

DP Star Launches Season 3

DP Star

Digital Playground, home of high-concept science fiction porn, big-budget location shoots, and exclusive contract performers is once again on the hunt for today’s hottest young wannabe porno superstar. Launching season three of its popular X-Factor/Voice/Idol-style talent contest this past Saturday, Digital Playground once again pits 31 of the most promising young porn starlets against each other in a battle of sexual skills, camera sense, and screen presence that just may determine the rest of their careers. At the very least, the winner will be welcomed into the fold as an invited Digital Playground performer given her own top-billed starring role in a forthcoming DP epic. With Round 1 now over and the voting public flooding the tally room with endorsements of their preferred whore, I thought it’d make sense to point to a few under sung starlets in the running this year, women you might neglect to investigate, their success falling under many viewer’s radars.

Jenna Foxx is one of only two black girls in the running this year, the other being AVN nominated Ana Foxxx, but she’s likely to set herself even further apart from her competitors thanks to her curvaceous all-natural physique and understated but sincere enthusiasm for dick.

Jasmine Summers is definitely a newbie, having shot only a few thrilling scenes for various mainstream studios and networks. Here at DP Star she’s up against women with ten time her experience, more voluptuous bodies, and more well known names, but her wide smile and lithe frame have already proven ripe for steamy sex.

Longtime Mr. Pink’s readers will know how enthusiastically we’ve endorsed Britney Amber, Luna Star, and Valentina Nappi in past posts, so, though it’ll begging tough, I’m not going to cover those incendiary performers here and instead keep focusing on lesser known models. Blair Williams and Lena Paul are a pair of ample-chested wide-shoulder sandy blondes whose eye contact and sensual movements have already earned them a legion of super fans, as has Anya Olsen’s skinny-and-slutty physical presence, Cassidy Klein’s deep bedroom eyes and fondness for anal, and Nina North’s incredible exotic style and slavish cock worshipping habits.

Judged by industry veterans Kieran Lee and Nikki Benz and hosted by last year’s DP Star winner, Aria Alexander, DP Star Season Three is scheduled to wrap up in February or March of next year, giving you ample time to check out the competitors, find a favorite, and start voting your fingers raw to keep her popularity soaring. The more popular she proves, the closer we come to seeing her rip it up for Digital Playground┬áin a feature headline role in 2017, so let’s get to it, super fans!
