AVN 2019 was glorious!
will be the biggest, naughtiest
adult film awards show yet!
Beginning January 22 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and sponsored by MyFreeCams.com, [must be 18! NSFW] the show features celebrities from the porn industry and sex play products of every conceivable style, color and purpose.
It’s a party, it’s an extravaganza, you need to go!
The heady old days . . .
The AVN Awards were first presented in 1984 just as the “golden age of porn” (1969 – 1984) was coming to an end. Deep Throat, shot in six days with $23k of mob money, grossed $600M. Other famous titles including Behind the Green Door, The Devil in Miss Jones, and Debbie Does Dallas, might be seen in a regular theater – what was known as porn chic in those days. It was cool for the hip and self-aware to go see a porn movie.
In 1984 there were just 17 porn award cataegories
But there was a backlash . . .
A lot of America did not think porn was anything but smut – even if they secretly rented a VHS cassette from that section of the local video store. There was no internet. There were no DVDs. Indeed, it was a golden age. Everything was more tactile, somehow. You had to go IN to the store to find a movie to watch. A clerk who spent the day watching movies (and the night rewinding returns) would recommend something.
Deep Throat was investigated by the FBI at very high level, reportedly even involving Mark Felt, then head of the agency. Later on, it was revealed that he was the secret Watergate informant – code-named Deep Throat.
Fast forward 30 years . . .
Today, porn is everywhere. Essentially, anything that can be fantasized over, drooled over by somebody, is fodder for porn. Food porn. Car porn. Real estate porn – even “moral outrage” porn (think Facebook). But all of the ways in which we have inserted porn into our lives have one thing in common: they are extreme and geared towards instant gratification. And that is the allure.
The top of the pyramid . . .
is still the sex industry. But what a change! High pay-per-scene low quality VHS – gone. DVD – gone. PPV online was still good – until the advent of porn tubes. Now fans watch full-length adult videos for free. And professional porn has been eclipsed by amateur porn. Sites like Pornhub [must be 18! NSFW] are full of people posting shit for a lark, alongside stuff with 4k production values and a budget.
How is a girl to cope?
Independent producers and amateur porn actresses are uploading their content to the tube sites themselves, building their brands and gaining huge followings.
Many viewers prefer the amateur vibe. So, where does the AVN Awards fit into all this? The professionals are competing with the amateurs for popularity, which equals dollars.
The game is the same. Views equals ads displayed, equals rev share. Include the sex products and toys with pornstar endorsements. Add premium Snapchat access [must be 18! NSFW], and Fancentro [must be 18! NSFW].
Fan interaction is where it’s at and the pros have taken note.
Be enterprising . . .
Some pornstars have gone to great lengths for their fans. Interacting with a pornstar is intimate. And getting inside info on shoots, special pics and clips, and other goodies has built fan bases in the millions – and earned millions – for some enterprising actresses. Some have even run raffles where fans can win a visit to a shoot, be a participant in the video or even have sex with their favorite pornstar!
Just watch us . . .
Full circle . . .
AVN started out as part of CES, the gigantic Consumer Electronics Show that takes over the Las Vegas Convention Center and captures the imagination of the tech and consumer world.
Then, AVN was an “Adult Software” exhibition and drew as many as 100,000 people – in addition to those attending CES.
Despite a complicated history – which includes revoking and then returning an award for a sex toy last year – CES 2020 is experimenting with sex tech on a trial basis!

The headier new days . .
Today, it’s a red carpet full of glitterati patterned after the Oscars, a four-day convention of 15,000 industry professionals, 250 exciting product brands, 30 workshops and seminars, and 20 networking events. Here’s a sampling:
- A seminar on how to integrate with the medical community – today’s marketing focus is as much about sexual and physical health as it is about pleasure
- Connect your business with fans through social media
- Legal issues – FOSTA/SESTA, data/privacy, sex dolls and intellectual property
- Inclusive retail spaces that are safe for POC and LGBTQI+ shoppers
- A boom in sex toys, with women leading the way
Winning scenes . . .
And in between the work, a lot of private suite parties will culminate on January 25 with the AVN Awards ceremony. Everyone is familiar with the traditional film Oscars categories for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and so on. Pornstars compete for a lot more, and winners have some interesting ways to celebrate!.
Today there are over 100 categories in the Oscars of Porn
And being seen . . .
Even celebrities not associated with the porn industry are gracing the stage. Comedians like Lisa Lampanelli and Bobby Slayton; performers like Smashmouth and Grammy winner Cardi B; and many more. It’s a long list. It’s also true a lot may have been B-list but that too is changing.
AVN is like Hollywood . . .
Sex is a multibillion-dollar industry. Porn actors, both male and female, have their fan bases, and play to certain genres just like their Hollywood counterparts. A few who rose to the top have become spokespersons and passionate teachers about all things sexual (think Nina Harley). A few have stepped beyond porn stardom and become successful in mainstream entertainment – one or two have even dipped a toe in modern politics, or the other way around, we’re not sure.
But one thing is for sure: the line between mainstream and porn gets thinner every year.
So, come to AVN 2020!
There’s no better place to celebrate than Las Vegas! Everybody wants to flirt with the taboo, live a little outside their comfort zone, take a thrilling risk, grab their 15 minutes (today, it’s 15 seconds) of fame.
Lengthen your short attention span!
You’ll be deliciously frazzled, and fantasy feted. Here’s what you need to know.
You must be 18 (duh).
