Announces 5th Annual 'RAW' Awards

PHILADELPHIA — has announced the launch of the 2014 TLA RAW Awards.

The producers said the annual awards honor the very best in straight adult entertainment, sex toys and other more eclectic categories.

“Unlike usual award programs, we try our best to add a little bit of humor and levity to the process,” said Cody Short, content marketing manager for “Sickest porn, hypest dick, best freakout…these aren’t the categories you’d see at the usual awards ceremony. We’ve always tried to be a site that’s as fun to read as it is to shop from, and the awards are an extension of that.”

Award nominees are selected by the site's staff, however, winners are selected by fan voting. Winners will be announced on or about April 15.

“ is excited to acknowledge and honor the hard work and quality that we see every day from studios and performers,” executive director Brian Sokel said. “These awards are voted on by the fans and our customers giving them the final say in who deserves to be acknowledged. We wish all of our nominees the best of luck.”
