FishbowlLA at the ‘Oscars of Porn’

It’s awards season, and that means the media indulges in an orgy of award shows to congratulate themselves for their best work from the past year. L.A.’s multi-billion dollar porn industry is no exception, gathering every year in Las Vegas for the AVN awards, a presentation of the adult industry trade AVN (Adult Video News), and commonly known as the “Oscars of porn.”

This fishie happened to be in Vegas this year, so we decided to check it out. And oh, dear lord, what an experience.

It’s so scary in there we’re hiding in the lobby. Without the sweet cushioning of a press pass, we’re tossed in with the fans, an enthusiastic group of fellows all willing to elbow us in the face to get a photo of a porn star.

So far Slash has only been our only celebrity sighting, and his wife shoved her hand in our face when we tried to take a photo. Life lesson: We’d never make it as a papparazzi.

But we’re not giving up, dear readers. We’re gonna head back in and do our best to stalk James Deen.
