The annual awards program was created to honor the very best in adult movies, studios, talent, sex toys and more, according to the TLAgay show organizers.
Voting was conducted online via the TLAgay website for the entire month of March, and was open to both TLA’s customers and the public at large.
“We wanted to create some good will and do something fun that would allow the fans to have a say in who they thought was the best of the year,” said Erik Schut, TLA managing director.
“We figured it would do well, but after a final tally of nearly 30,000 votes we quickly realized that fans loved the idea. Our tagline is ‘We know you like to watch.’ Maybe next year we should change it to ‘We know you like to vote.’ It was definitely a totally positive and eye-opening experience.”
Some notable winners included Lucas Entertainment’s "Men of Israel” that took the Must-Own Movie of the Year prize, and fan favorite Chi Chic LaRue who won Director of the Year.
TitanMen won Big-Boy Studio of the Year and Randy Blue took the honor of Best New to DVD/Up & Coming Studio.
