Zero Tolerance Star Kagney Linn Karter Wins XBIZ New Starlet Award

VENICE, CA – Even before the award was announced Wednesday night there seemed to be little question who the winner would be: Zero Tolerance’s newest contract star Kagney Linn Karter. Last month she won Best New Starlet at the AVN Awards, was Adult Web Movie Database’s Best New Performer, Playboy.com called Kagney a “Star Among Stars” on the Girlwatcher Best of 2009  and named Best Newcomer by Porn Valley Observed. And now XBIZ has deemed her its New Starlet of the Year.

“I’m not going to lie and say this isn’t one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me,” Kagney said the following morning. “I work like crazy last year and I was fortunate to get cast in some really great titles. Now with the Zero Tolerance contract, I’m going in very focused. I can’t wait to see what this year brings!”

Kagney signed an exclusive contract with Zero Tolerance in January. In the past year she has been a Penthouse Pet, was seen on the covers of Hustler, AVN, Genesis, Cheri and is on the front of Holly Randall’s new book, Erotic Dream Girls.

Takes Home New Male Performer of the Year Trophy at XBIZ Awards

VENICE, CA – Exactly a month after winning Best Male Newcomer at the AVN Awards, Dane Cross solidified his position as the industry’s top rising star by winning New Male Performer of the Year at the XBIZ Awards last night.

In a year that saw him rise from an alt-porn darling to a serious woodsman with the ability to act (see Not Married With Children XXX, The Office: A XXX Parody and a slew of others).

“This was certainly a goal of mine and I’m very pleased to be honored by XBIZ in this way,” he said last night. “If producers were wondering if I could pull it off, I think now they know.”

This past year he worked for Vivid, New Sensations, Adam & Eve, Penthouse, Wicked and many others.

“I don’t know what my specific goals are for this year,” he said, “but I definitely want to try acting more and I never tire of doing sex scenes.”

ATMLA Leading the Way in Online Innovation With Dynamic Breakthroughs

VENICE, CA – As a performer and feature dancer, Shy Love has always lived on the cutting edge. That’s why it comes as no surprise that she’s doing the same when it comes to her agency, Adult Talent Managers. This week she has re-launched the agency’s site, www.atmla.com, making it the most visually stunning and the simplest to navigate in the entire industry.

“It’s incredibly important to make it as easy as possible for producers, directors and casting agents to be able to navigate our site,” Shy said. “We think we’ve come along way in responding to what people have told us they wanted out of the site, and it will work better for everyone.”

Shy is also writing a column for Rock Confidential, the latest with the title “Why Women Can’t Keep a Man.” She gives an easy to follow 6-tip list of ways for dames to hang on to their dudes.

“Men and women both have so many questions,” Shy said. “It’s crazy that we spend so much time pursuing each other, yet in so many ways we seem to have no idea what we’re doing. I’m trying to do my little bit to help.”

Shy will also be presenting the Host of the Year trophy at the XBIZ Awards on Wednesday night.

Last year Shy launched a new venture, Adult Business Seminars. Joining forces with seasoned veterans Nina Hartley, Ron Jeremy, Bishop and Ben Kraus, Shy and her friends offer extensive production workshops covering everything from creating adult business concepts all the way through to creation and marketing of your finished product. Classes include topics like creating production budgets, hiring talent, HIV testing, hiring production crews, set designing, sound and lighting, various production techniques, camera placement and movement, utilizing the production check list, marketing your product, post production and much more.

AVN’s Best Male Newcomer Nails Faye Reagan in New Layout

VENICE, CA – And there he is again. Just a year ago he was an alt-porn star with hopes of crossing over into adult’s mainstream. Now he is the reigning AVN Best Male Newcomer and certainly among the favorites to take home the New Male Performer of the Year prize at next week’s XBIZ Awards.

In the meantime, one can find him in titles like Interactive Sex With Alexis Texas, Meggan’s Sexy Stories, The Office 2: A XXX Parody and the upcoming Not Really The Dukes of Hazzard. He is also in the current (March) issue of Club in a penetrating layout with fire-haired Faye Reagan.

“Last year was about establishing myself as both a strong performer and as a solid actor,” Dane says. “I want to be able to tackle any role that comes my way, whether it be a gonzo quickie or a dialogue-intensive character. Both are fulfilling in their own way.”

Of course, little acting was required for the Club shoot, since it was done with a still camera (shot by the one and only Holly Randall) and Faye and Dane are in a long-term relationship.

“Yeah, it sucks having to get paid to nail to the same sweet piece of ass I’m going to get again the second we get home,” he laughs. “Pornography has been very, very good to me.”

Adult Source Media Signs Deal for European Distribution

RESEDA, CA – Adult Source Media is proud to announce that they have signed an exclusive distribution deal with Scala-Playhouse to distribute their DVD’s in Europe. Scala has also gained the right to distribute other lines distributed by ASM including Sparta Video (Gay) and Abigal Productions (lesbian).

“Adult Source Media” and Scala have been friends for many years and I could not think of anyone we would rather do this with,” explains Adult Source Media President Wendy Crawford.”This is a natural progression, I think for both of us. They are ‘the’ powerhouse in Europe. We know they will do the best job possible in continuing to brand our company into Europe.”

Adult Source Media will be releasing 4 titles a month until Scala-Playhouse has caught up with their entire catalog, and plans to keep their fans happy by including all of their new releases as well.

“We’ve been blessed with great results from our titles,” Crawford continues. “With the huge success of our newest gay CGI title ‘Tales from the Gods’ in the States it’s not surprising that we are also starting to see impressive numbers coming from Europe as well.”
