LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Times published a lively recap of the 2014 XBIZ Awards on Wednesday on the front page of its daily newspaper.

Introduced in Column One with the headline, "An uninhibited affair," the story details everything from the festive atmosphere during the red-carpet arrivals to the goings-on both on the stage and behind the scenes at the Century Plaza Hotel, where the 12th annual ceremony unfolded on Jan. 24.

L.A. Times reporter Daniel Miller shared anecdotes from the 2014 XBIZ Female Performer of the Year, Riley Reid, Ron Jeremy, agent Mark Spiegler and the founder of XBIZ, Alec Helmy, among others in the piece.

The Times' online subhead read, "Mixing red-carpet propriety and porno prurience, the XBIZ Awards in L.A. celebrate both the performances and infrastructure that have made adult entertainment a $10-billion industry."

Wally Skalij photographed the event for the Times; his 12-picture gallery appears online.
