A star-studded affair that attracts the industry elite, the XBIZ Awards show, celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2017, recognizes outstanding achievements across every facet of the multibillion-dollar business, including movie production, pleasure products, technology and retail.

Since its inception, household names from the world of adult have hosted the gala, including Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick, Jesse Janejessica drake, Kayden Kross and James Deen. Its worldwide reach has led to international media coverage from renowned outlets such as the L.A. Times, CNBC, TIME, Cosmopolitan, New York Magazine, Huffington Post and The Daily Beast, among others.

The XBIZ Awards will once again coincide with the industry’s trade events series of the year, XBIZ 2017, which annually features an unparalleled lineup of guest speakers and special events dedicated to exploring the future of the adult industry.

The 2016 Spank Bank Award Winners

2

In its now traditional locale of @gabriel_lan‘s lavish living room in warm, sunny Nowhere Special, USA, the 5th annual Spank Bank Awards show was bigger and better than ever this year.

The Spank Bank Awards are voted on by a panel of porn critics (@gabriel_lan), noted adult film connoisseurs (@gabriel_lan), outside adult industry media insiders (@gabriel_lan), x-rated film fans (@gabriel_lan), and a committee chairman (also @gabriel_lan). Nominees who entice or influence the panel with any form of ‘sweet talking’, ‘sexual innuendo’, ‘buttering up’, or outright eluding to sexual favors greatly increase their chances of winning.
