VAN NUYS, Calif. — Pure Play Media congratulates the 2016 XBIZ Award-winning studios whose videos it distributes.
“We are honored to have the studios we represent receive these accolades,” said Adam H., vice president of sales for Pure Play Media. “Our studios are dedicated to providing the best adult entertainment possible, and we are so proud to showcase their new releases every week. Congratulations to all of our studios, whose hard work is particularly recognized this month — and we look forward to promoting them at every turn!”
In the Vignette Series of the Year category, Naughty America’s “Tonight’s Girlfriend” series received the coveted trophy. Each release from the series depicts "gorgeous girlfriends-for-hire in one-night-only fantasy scenarios, featuring the hottest female talent in the industry."
"We're flattered to have won Vignette Series of the Year this year for ‘Tonight’s Girlfriend,’” said Lauren of Naughty America. “Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen."
The Transgender Release of the Year trophy went to Trans500’s “Kaitlyn Gender: Based on a Not So True Story,” a parody based on the exploits of trans-celebrity “Kaitlyn Gender,” played by trans performer Jonelle Brooks and directed by Josh Stone.
“I studied Caitlyn Jenner a lot, and really wanted to get her mannerisms: how she carries herself, and most importantly, her voice,” Brooks said. “I like that this movie also promotes positivity for trans people. I think there will be a new understanding of what the real Caitlyn went through, and I hope all my fans will purchase the movie.”
“Kaitlyn Gender: Based on a Not So True Story” stars cover model Jonelle Brooks, Ramon, Wendy Williams, Angelina Castro, Duncan Black, Toby Springs and Hannah Reese. To see the box cover, synopsis and cast list for the film, click here.

“I'm so proud to have the first line out under my name win such a prestigious award out the gate!” Kross said. “Fans can look forward to more high-quality content released under this line in the coming year. Thank you, XBIZ!”
