Canada’s Joins the Pornocracy

VANCOUVER, BC: Canada has had exotic dance competitions, film festivals, and the Feminist Porn Awards, but we’ve never had all the adult entertainers under one roof – until now.

On June 9, 2010 at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, the sex industry community and their supporters will gather to honour and celebrate the “people’s choice” in adult entertainment. Some local winners include Favourite Adult Film Company Good Dyke Porn, Favourite Female Striptease Artist Sinful Sindy, Favourite Sex Worker Advocate Susan Davis, and Favourite Lingerie Company Lace Embrace.

Categories include all adult entertainment participants, including: coworkers such as photographers, costume designers, and agents; advocates of sex industry worker rights; sex industry business owners; and patrons. The nomination and voting took place on NakedTruth.ca, a well-established social community that was started by local exotic dancer, Annie Temple, almost ten years ago.

“No one ever hears about the amazing and good work going on in the adult entertainment industry,” says Temple. “Even when we say what we love about this industry, people don’t hear us. They don’t want to believe us. This is our chance to showcase some of our best and give credit where it is due.”

Temple says many people involved in the adult entertainment business and the sex worker movement deserve recognition for their safe and ethical business practices, talent, and commitment to change. “There are those of us who truly appreciate what they do.”

The awards ceremony will feature a multi-media experience combined with live entertainment. Local celebrity, Samantha Mack will emcee the awards. An off-camera after-party will follow for networking with XXX celebrities and influential players in the adult entertainment industry.

Members of the public are invited to join in making history by attending the first Canadian Adult Entertainment Awards ceremony ever. Tickets are $50. Discounts are available for multiple purchases. Contact annie@nakedtruth.ca to get your tickets in advance. Seating is limited. Doors open at 7 pm.
