LOS ANGELES — James Deen received the inaugural Cocksman of the Year award at the Fanny Awards.
Exxxotica’s Fan Choice Awards were held on April 20 in Atlantic City.
"This is an honor, to be the first to win this award," Deen said. "I want to thank the fans — not just for voting, but for supporting me in what I do. It means a lot.”
Dubbed the “permanent crush of all straight ladydom” by female-oriented site Jezebel.com, Deen appeared at the adult expo’s Ladies Free Friday where he met fans, signed autographs and posed for pictures all three days of the show at the HotMovies.com booth.
Exxxotica made its debut in Atlantic City a decade after East Coast show had its last meeting in 2003.
“We were happy to host James’ first ever Exxxotica appearance and present him with the first ever Cocksman of the Year award at The Fannys,” Exxxotica director J. Handy said. “He certainly helped make for an unforgettable night.”
Deen is featured in the upcoming mainstream film from Paul Schrader and Bret Easton Ellis "The Canyons" with Lindsay Lohan. He is also producing a new mainstream steampunk production "Cowboys and Engines," which is being funded through Kickstarter.
