LOS ANGELES — Honoring top achievements across every segment of the adult industry over the past year, New Sensations/Digital Sin was awarded with six wins at XBIZ's annual red-carpet ceremony this past weekend.
The bulk of awards came from New Sensations' Erotic Stories Collection which took home four of the studio's biggest awards for its feature films "The Temptation of Eve" and "The Submission of Emma Marx." The line, which debuted in early 2013, has received what the company has called "overwhelming" critical acclaim over the past year—similar to the early success its predecessor, The Romance Series which burst onto the scene in 2010.
"It's always a risk when you take a new direction within the feature genre," said XBIZ 360 keynote speaker and president of New Sensations, Scott Taylor. "But it seems that the risk really paid off. Thank you, XBIZ for recognizing what makes our Erotic Stories Collection so unique. Expect to see more of these type of films in the coming year."
"The Temptation of Eve" earned two acting category wins for Remy La Croix (Best Actress) and Tommy Pistol ( Best Supporting Actor) and one Best Screenplay win for its story about a woman's struggle balancing the loyalty she feels towards her current partner and the dangerous sexual pull she has towards a former one.
The last win for the Erotic Stories Collection went to XBIZ Female Performer of the Year, Riley Reid who earned a Best Supporting Actress win for her role in "The Submission of Emma Marx." The film, which has garnered both national and international accolades, explores the psychological dynamics within a budding BDSM relationship and Reid's portrayal of the socially acceptable, "normal character," was pivotal in creating tension within the story.
New Sensations/Digital Sin were also awarded two big wins in the all-sex categories - Best All Sex Series and Best Scene in a Non-Feature for its titles "Pretty Dirty" and "The Gang Bang of Bonnie Rotten." Over the past two years, Best All Sex Series, "Pretty Dirty" has showcased some of the industry's most beautiful stars including, XBIZ's trophy girl, Jessa Rhodes, and Remy La Croix, Mia Malkova, Adriana Chechik, Romi Rain early in their careers. And it was "The Gang Bang of Bonnie Rotten," winner of XBIZ's Best Scene in a Non-Feature Release, that marked the epic debut of Bonnie Rotten's first-ever group sex scene on camera.
This year's XBIZ Awards further solidify New Sensations/Digital Sin's impact on the adult industry within a variety of genres from features to all-sex releases, the company said.
