The highlight of the year is the AVN Awards that provide adult entertainers with the highest honor on the adult industry’s biggest night during AEE (Adult Entertainment Expo). The pre-show kicks off with the red carpet and completes with an amazing ceremony celebrating the outstanding achievements of those in the “business of pleasure.” Our main goal was to find out how if at all has the new condom laws and rise in production costs affected the adult industry.
We got different feeling about it from the stars. Some felt that there has been no if little change to the industry since the stricter regulations and higher permit costs. The biggest complaint was that this new law proposed would violate those stars right that choose to not wear condoms. They feel this is something that should be a choice and not forced on them.
This year’s red carpet was grand and extra spectacular considering it wrapped around the casino leading into The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino so fans can get pictures and a glimpse of their favorite or most popular adult entertainers in the industry. The AVN Awards has been noted to be the “Oscars of adult” and the multibillion dollar adult industry has been running for 31 years now.
Many are worried about the nations’ porn capital may be packing up and moving to Las Vegas, considering this town is notorious for marketing sex with the steady stream of strip club promotions and advertising throughout the city. Some would consider this the perfect place to start a porn filming revolution. Most stars on the red carpet were excited that the industry may start producing more in Las Vegas because they love the idea of filming in Sin City. Others were not intimidated with this move because they feel porn valley in California will never change or be eliminated.
This year’s AVN Awards was hosted by Chanel Preston and Wicked Pictures star Samantha Saint. Categories of this year’s AVN Awards show include Best Video, Best New Starlet, Most Outrageous Sex Scene, Best Group Sex Scene and Best Selling DVD of the Year.
