Tweeting the AVNs

2012 AVN AwardsSo you can’t swing the extra cash for the $300-a-seat fan ticket required to attend the upcoming AVN Awards. Neither can I, but you won’t see me bitching about it. (Not here, at least, and not yet.) You can still keep up to speed on every little thing that transpires on January 21st by tuning in to the Twitter feeds of AVN’s newly announced official Twitter correspondents!

Joining forces with PornstarTweet, AVN has appointed pornstars supreme, Chanel Preston, Tia Cyrus, and Bibi Jones, as the official Tweeters of the 2012 AVN Awards. From her station on the red carpet, Tia will greet the arriving stars before passing the torch over to Chanel and Bibi, the former occupying a place in the audience and the latter hanging out with the presenters, guests, and winners backstage. Expect a barrage of photos, quips, and responses to fan questions throughout the event, and be sure to follow Chanel, Tia, Bibi, AVN Awards, PornstarTweet, and, of course, Mr. Pink’s on Twitter for every drool-inducing morsel of instantly gratifying information as the Oscars of Porn takes Vegas by storm.

Not to be outdone, ImLive will feature live performances from five AVN Award nominees between January 16 and 18 in the lead up to the big night. Allie Haze, Lexi Belle, Gracie Glam, and Kagney Linn Karter, all of whom are nominated for Female Performer of the Year, and Capri Anderson, nominated for Crossover Star of the Year, will appear on the live webcam site in salacious scenes, the last of which has Lexi, Gracie, and Kagney performing together in what will surely be the greatest foreplay imaginable leading up to the money shot of the AVN Awards, due to land on January 21st. Set your clocks, folks, ’cause it’s gonna be a big one!

Belladonna to perform on aerial silks at 2012 AVN Awards

Pornstars usually have some kind of hidden talent that they’d only unveil under the most intimate of circumstances; or if the price was right. Who knew, for instance, that the now retired Erica Campbell was such a skilled equestrian, or that tiny lil’ Asa Akira could fit so much cock in her ass?

You might have assumed Belladonna, anally-inclined cock-gobbler extraordinaire and leader of Belladonna Entertainment, revealed all of her multitude of talents during her time in front of the camera – after all, she is known for performing acts that would make most experienced pornstars balk – but at this years annual AVN Awards show, the AVN Hall of Fame member will take the stage in an entirely different context.

Aerial Silk is “a performance in which… artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a special fabric,” says Wikipedia. Using nothing but a length of silken fabric to support herself, Belladonna’s aerial act sees her showcase her incredible physique in a much different way than in her onscreen work. If her appearance at New Jersey’s Exxxotica convention last year – see video below – is any indication, Cirque du Bella promises to be as surprising to Belladonna’s fans as her porn roles must have been to her family members.

Taking to the stage at the 2012 AVN Awards will surely give Circque du Bella its largest audience yet and word has it that the hyper-athletic star is choreographing a routine exclusively for the occasion. “Aerial silks is my new found passion,” she recently told AVN. “I’m absolutely ecstatic that I can share this performance with everyone at the 2012 AVN Awards show.” While it’s certainly a far cry from grinding her anus all over the face of a tied-up, blindfolded woman while dishing out dual handjobs akimbo-style in front of a surprisingly dispassionate camera crew, Cirque du Bella is bound to be one of the more erotic features of the Oscars of porn.

AVN 2012: The Democratic Porn Awards

AVN AwardsDevoted fans of adult entertainment have always been able to vote with their wallets, but this year Adult Video News is giving them the chance to vote with their trackpads and mice. In addition to the multitude of categories of professional competition in the 2012 AVN Awards, the folks at AVN have decided to rely on the opinions of the porn-viewing public to determine who rules supreme on viewers laptop, iPhone, and television screens this season.

The four categories cover three of the most essential awards – Best Body, Favorite Porn Star, and Hottest Sex Scene – while the last is definitely a sign that pornstars who communicate with fans via social networking sites are much loved. Twitter Queen will arguably be the most hotly contested award, but in the opinion of this reporter, there’s only one woman who can truly claim to be the most actively read and frequently discussed Tweeter in porn (even if she has allegedly retired) and that’s Ms. Bree Olson, author of such notable musings as ” I was reading an Alton Brown cookbook while getting fucked in the ass last night. It was an interesting experience,” and “Forgot my vibrator buy one take pic and giveme # and I’ll let u cum 2 hotel &fuckeme 2nite Vegas.” Who else but the woman proclaimed by Howard Stern to be The World’s Biggest Whore could snag an award celebrating extreme filthiness in fewer than 140 characters?

You’ve only got until Jan. 12, 2012 to cast your votes, smut fans, so you’d better get a-motivatin’ on over to the AVN Awards site where  your vote really does count for something.

Adult Workers of the USA, Celebrate!

LA Direct ModelsThe first proposal for the celebration of Labor Day asked for “A street parade to exhibit to the public ‘the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations,” and since it’s unlikely the general public will spend this coming Monday praising the work of those who suck and fuck on camera, don’t you think you, as an avid enjoyer of the pornographic arts, should do a little something to commend their tireless effort to fulfill your deepest sexual fantasies? LA Direct Models certainly thinks so.

Hosting a Labor Day Extravaganza at the Hollywood Playhouse on Sunday September 4th, porn’s premiere talent agency intends to honor porn’s hardest working women and men the best way the adult industry knows how – by partying their cotton socks off! Jerry Anders of co-sponsor Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network, told AVN that the bash, which is hosted by big-bootied adult superstars Alexis Texas and Kristina Rose, is a chance “to celebrate all the hard-working people in the industry who keep it moving along all year, which is what the holiday is about.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Hats off to you, porn professionals, now party hard, take Monday off, then get your impeccable asses back to work! (Just be sure not to wear white lingerie.)
