The Gay Porn Awards 2018 season has started. Are Black and Latino performers going to be underrepresented again, as in every other previous year?

It is a long season. We started last week in both sides of the Atlantic. In Berlin, the Real Hustlaball Awards  took place. On this side of the pound, we had the Str8upgayporn Awards, organized by the homonymous blog. Fortunately or unfortunately, the industry is very diverse and has no one single awards event but several. Therefore, I may not know about all of them. Please, add your knowledge in the comments if you know anything about porn awards not included in this post.

After last week ceremonies, we have a long break. On January 14th the Cybersockets Web Awards will take place in West Hollywood, California. This is an award focused on internet porn, traditional studios are out. Finally, we close the season with the GAYVN awards ceremony on January 21st, in Vegas. This one has the year 2019 in its title, but they are actually honoring productions released this current year.

Not surprisingly, all these different awards have many of the gay porn powerhouses as sponsors, and therefore present a strong bias. One of the general outcomes that every year frustrates a significant number of entertainers and consumers is the outstanding under representation of performers of color. This blogger has a strong position about the blatant Racism that characterizes our adult entertainment (which in my mind includes sex workers) culture. However, the ideal would be to have a direct victim of discrimination to share his testimony. I am trying to get one.

First Gay Porn Awards 2018

Let’s start in Berlin with the Real Hustlaball Awards. This is an Award mostly sponsored by European powerhouses. I LIKE PINGA was supporting two nominees, Mintboys and Pablo Bravo and his website, Bravofucker.com. We mentioned it in Finding Porn.

Unfortunately, Mintboys lost the nomination as best escort website. The winner in this category was Hunqz, which used to be the escorts section of Planet Romeo. Gladly, we do have some good news. Our Peruvian God was luckier, and won the nomination in the category Best Group Movie 2018 with International Orgy. I looked for the movie in his website to post the link, but could not find it.

Almost simultaneously the Str8upgayporn Awards ceremony was taking place on this side of the Atlantic. The hosting blog has ties with Cockyboys, you can see the bias if you go through nominations and winners. This blogger did not learn on time about these awards and did not vote. Nevertheless, we do like two of the awards. First, Best performer of the year went to super hot super star Austin Wilde. We love him. Second, Best Duo Scene went to Boomer Banks and Jacen Zhu for a clip they shot for, surprise, Cockyboys. We deeply admire Boomer, and adore Jacen, who is a local star. He made this statement from his Twitter account. That speech has made me review my decision of not hiring him for a third time. Suddenly, I find him very desirable again.

Coming Gay Porn Awards 2018

Next in line we find the CyberSocket Web Awards. They have a very populated list of categories and nominees, and you can still vote. We have a few favorite candidates and would appreciate it if you click in the link an add your vote. The list would be too long if we share all our preferences, we need to focus.

Please, vote first for Timarrie Baker for Best Porn Star; Mintboys then for Best Escort Site; next Latin Leche for Best Latin-Themed Site; and finally Breed it Raw for Best Black-Themed Site. I allow you to vote for anyone and anything you prefer in the rest of the categories, I am that open minded .

Just a week after these Web oriented Awards, GAYVN launches its own ceremony. They have launched their pre-nomination site. That means you will not be choosing the winner, but the nominees. You do have to fill a registration form in orden to be able to participate in that stage of the voting process. I am in trouble in the Best Butt category. Should I nominee Chino Blac or Beaux Banks?

A new Gay Porn Award 2018

FORBIDDEN APPLE

Can you believe that I LIKE PINGA was not nominated as best porn site, and Jose Soplanucas as best performer? Outrageous!

2018 will be the first full year for this blog, as we were born in June 2017. I LIKE PINGA will have its own Gay Porn Awards 2018. Without a red carpet and an expensive ceremony, this blog is planning to humbly recognize what we think have been the best performances and productions of this year. We will probably start issuing recognitions in January, as soon as the trip to Brazil is over.

I LIKE PINGA will be recognizing the performers and work that are consistently under estimated by the mainstream industry. We are still thinking of the categories, although it is not hard to imagine many of them. Best escort, Best Porn Star, Best Escort Website, etc. We may show some originality, although we are not looking for being creative but for being fare and for celebrating the talents that bring us (me) so much happiness. Remarkably, this blog is not a democracy and you will not vote. However, suggestions are welcome the next couple of months.

This blogger is a proud consumer of Porn, specially Black Porn, and we will honor our favorite ones. I LIKE PINGA has already become one of the best resources to learn about gay escorts, the plan is to become also a resource for Black and Latino-Themed oriented porn.

Stay tuned. Soon we will have more news. Also, pease do not forget to support us, and check our new service, I LIKE PINGA en español.

Hasta la próxima pinga, amig@s!
