Pizza with Porn Stars at the AVN Awards

So our last-minute attempts to score press credentials for the AVN Awards landed us only nosebleed seats, probably better than we deserved, but far too far from the show. We sought solace in the lobby, where we found several porn stars also taking a break from the action.

Daisy Layne gamely let us take a picture of her eating a slice of pizza in her floor-length evening gown, while Dick Chibbles entertained us with tales of performing as Chewbacca in Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody. ”I was wearing forty pounds of fur! I lost 5 pounds a day during filming,” he exclaimed.

Chibbles cracked jokes about working in porn, but said he considered the job meaningful. ”There’s about 3,500 porn actors worldwide. And there’s 7 billion people on the planet. We’re acting out the sexual fantasies of 7 billion people. I take that seriously. We’re a part of history.”

Final reflections on the night: The “Oscars of porn” are much livelier and entertaining than the real Oscars, and porn actors are, on average, friendlier and more polite than the Hollywood variety. Oh, and they make better sex tapes (Sorry, Kim). We may have found our new favorite beat.
