The adult entertainment industry is incredibly competitive. The evolving landscape of content distribution means that in order to be successful, performers have to work hard on their branding, their marketing, and their audience engagement.

Being nominated – and hopefully winning – awards such as GayVN, help build and sustain the momentum of your career. Success at awards ceremonies such as GayVN helps to keep you on everyone’s radar, ultimately leading to more income from subscriptions and bookings.

The GayVN Awards are presented in early January of each year. The 2023 awards will be presented in Las Vegas on 5 January.

Best Actor

Our tip? This is a tough one, but our money would be on Dillon Diaz, Cole Connor, or Diego Sans. They’ve got experience in bringing dramatic roles to life and fully commit to their characters.

Best Actor – Featurette

Our tip? It could be Dante Colle or Adam Ramzi, but it’s hard to go past Joel Someone – he’s the thinking man’s porn-star.

Best Supporting Actor

  • Max Adonis, Love Happens, CockyBoys
  • Austin Avery, Love Happens, CockyBoys
  • Beau Butler, Get. Away., NakedSword Originals

  • Wet 2: Heatwave,

Our Tip? Scrum from Hot House ticked a lot of boxes for us, but Raw Fuck Club always delivers when it comes to putting sex on screen.

Best Bi Sex Scene

  • The Affairs of Lidia, Lust Cinema; Vanna Bardot, Skye Blue, Drew Dixon, Sean Ford & Markus Kage
  • “Bi Pool Orgy,”; Aliya Brynn, Hatler Gurius, Rose Lynn, Draven Navarro, Aften Opal, Chad Rexx & Joel Someone

  • mr. Pam, Next Stop Vegas, Disruptive Films
  • Pierce Paris & Ben Rush, Bred and Breakfast: The Come Inn, NakedSword
  • Alex Roman, Unraveled,
  • Alter Sin, Norse Fuckers,

Our tip? There’s a lot of quality work here, but Tony Dimarco delivered the goods with Ride or Die for Raging Stallion.

Best Director – Non-Feature

  • Boomer Banks, Steve Cruz, Leo Forte, Devin Franco & Max Konnor, Men’s Briefs, Falcon
  • Carlos Caballero, Tight Fit, Kristen Bjorn
  • Gio Caruso, Making a Mess!, Pride Studios

  • Alex Roman, Wet 2: Heatwave,
  • Alter Sin, BelAmi X Sean Cody, BelAmi/Sean Cody

Our tip? There’s no bad options here, but filming a gang-bang and really doing it justice is no easy feat. On that basis, we’d probably give it to Nick Moretti for the gang-fuck of Silver Steele.

Best Duo Sex Scene

  • “Austin Breeds Leo,”; Leo Grand & Austin Wilde
  • BelAmi X Sean Cody, BelAmi/Sean Cody; Jim Durden & Manny (Diego Daniels)

  • Unraveled,; Seth Peterson & Kai Taylor

Our tip? There’s something about watching a real-life couple that takes a duo scene to the next level. It could be Dillon Diaz and Jake Waters, but there’s also Rhyheim Shabazz and Elijah Zayne to consider.

  • Body & Sol, Falcon
  • Briar Basin Ranch, Disruptive Films
  • Game On, CockyBoys
  • Get.Away., NakedSword
  • Historias de Barcelona, TLAgay
  • Love Happens, CockyBoys

  • Un-Romantic Getaway, Helix

Our tip? It’s a toss-up between Briar Basin Ranch and Ride or Die.

Best Featurette

  • “Boy Lust 3,” (Manuel Skye & Edward Terrant)
  • “Buying Time,” (Dante Colle & Dakota Payne)
  • “Devil May Cum,” (Felix Fox, Adrian Hart & Jack Hunter)
  • “The Gift” (Men’s Briefs), Falcon (Shane Cook, Tristan Hunter & Max Konnor)

  • “Red Hot,” (Noah Bentley & Josh Brady)
  • “Under the Neon Sky,” (Sean Ford & Leo Louis)
  • “The Watchful Neighbor,” (Jordan Jameson & Zario Travezz)

Our tip? Jordan Jameson and Zario Travezz are exactly who we want to watch in action, and The Watchful Neighbor is top-tier.

Best Fetish Scene

  • Bad Daddies (“Locker Room Talk”), Icon Male; Michael Boston, Dante Colle & Killian Knox
  • BelAmi Bukkake,; Pip Caulfield, Elio Chalamet, Christiano Cruzo, Hans Lagerfeld, Jarrod Lanvin, Ashton Montana & Mario Texeira
  • “The Electrician,”; Trent King & Skyy Knox
  • “The Experiment,”; Axel Abysse & Syusaku
  • “Flex,”; Lawrence Morningstar & Eli Shaw
  • “Fraternity Fantasies: Blindfolds & Bukakke,”; Julian Brady, Elliot Finn, Evan Knoxx, Jayden Marcos & Justin Matthews
  • “Fun Pack 10: Morning Wood,”; Tom Bentley, Joshua Oaks & LeGrand Wolf
  • Hit Me Up, CockyBoys; Greyson Myles & Austin Wolf

  • “Sex Cult,”; Ho Vinh Khoa, Rhonee Rojas & Tyler Wu
  • “Tied Up for Torment,”; Zak Bishop & Killian Knox
  • “Yes, Sir Peter, Sir!”,; Sir Peter & Alan Vicenzo

Our tip? Obviously, ‘fetish’ can have a fairly broad definition and some of these scenes might feel a little fetish-lite. KinkMen have long been setting the standard for commercial-level fetish content, but it’s hard to look away from the work of Axel Abysse.

Best Group Sex Scene

  • “10 Year Anniversary Gangbang,”; Kenzo Alvarez, Gabriel Clark, Tony D’Angelo, Darenger, Clark Delgaty, Malik Delgaty, Felix Fox, Markus Kage, Trent King, Skyy Knox & Paul Wagner

  • Fuck Fest, Champ Robinson; Brian Bonds, Dillon Diaz, Champ Robinson & Jake Waters
  • “Holy Orders,”; Ray Dexter, Drew Dixon, Nico Nova & Tomik 9.5
  • “Joel, Peter, Jack & Justin,”; Peter Annaud, Joel Birkin, Jack Harrer & Justin Saradon
  • Los Angeles Police Dads 2, Dragon Media; Michael Boston, Dillon Diaz, Lucca Mazzi, Jake Nicola, Vince Parker, Luke Truong & Jake Waters
  • “Massage Exchange Orgy (Part 1 & 2),”; Danny Ice, Levy Foxx, Alfonso Osnaya, Nic Sahara, Travis Yukarin & Zario Travezz
  • Meat Market 2 (“Market Daze Orgy Part 1 & 2”), RawFuckClub/Dark Alley Media; Boomer Banks, Owen Hawk, Jayden Jaxx, Cain Marko, Tyler Roberts, Tarzan Top & Jack Vidra
  • Scrum: Go Big or Go Home, Hot House; Cole Connor, Luca del Rey, Devin Franco, Tristan Hunter, JJ Knight, Roman Todd, Tarzan Top & Drew Valentino
  • “Tag Team 7: Watching the Game,”; Tom Bentley, Cole Blue, Eric Charming, Matthew Figata & Jax Thirio
  • “Tim’s Fuckfest,”; Mario Galeno, Oskar Ivan, Tim Kruger & Valentino Sistor
  • Wet 2: Heatwave,; Noah Bentley, Josh Brady, Silas Brooks, Garrett Kinsley, Seth Peterson & Chase Williams

Our tip? Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to group sex scenes, but it certainly makes the logistics of it all more complicated – so it’s impressive to be able to effectively bring that energy to the screen. On that basis, we’d lean towards the Silver Steele gang-bang, or the Meat Market orgy from Raw Fuck Club.

Best Newcomer

  • Brogan
  • Nico Coopa
  • Dale (Jkab Ethan Dale)
  • Devy
  • Grant Ducati
  • Daniel Evans
  • Dane Jaxson
  • Evan Knoxx
  • Andrew Miller
  • Reign
  • Jordan Starr
  • Kai Taylor
  • Drew Valentino
  • Alpha Wolfe
  • Tyler Wu

Our tip? Jordan Starr and Drew Valentino both picked up Best Newcomer at the recent Fleshbot awards, so that gives them form coming into this one. Nico Coopa could be the dark horse.

Best Three-way Sex Scene

  • “26 Inches of Dick,”; Lane Colten, Adrian Duvall & Mitch Matthews
  • “Breaking in Jason Luna,”; Sean Duran, Owen Hawk & Jason Luna
  • “Double Stuffed (Part 3),”; Johnny Donovan (Deacon), Felix Fox & Chris White
  • “Dylan’s Fuck ’N Spin,”; Barron, Dylan & Roman
  • “Esctacy,”; Roxas Caelum, Julian Torres & Cutler X
  • “Fucking a Third,”; Lane Colten, Michael Roman & Isaac X
  • “Greedy Fuck,” Champ Robinson; Magic Mike, Champ Robinson & Joel Someone
  • Hit Me Up, CockyBoys; Daniel Evans, Evan Knoxx & Caleb Manning
  • “How to Build a Perfect Threesome,”; Reese Jackson, Garrett Kinsley & Kai Taylor
  • “L’amour à trois,”; Valentin Amour, Tommy Dreams & Diego Mattos

  • A Stepbrother’s Obsession 3, Icon Male; Des Irez, Zeno Rey & Drew Sebastian
  • You Asked For It, NakedSword Originals; Beau Butler, Reign & Roman Todd

Our tip? The dicking down of Valentin Amour for Timtales was solid, but our money is on Greedy Fuck featuring Champ Robinson, Magic Mike, and Joel Someone – that’s three of our favourite men right there.

Performer of the Year

  • Brandon Anderson
  • Beau Butler
  • Dante Colle
  • Chris Damned
  • Dillon Diaz
  • Andre Donovan
  • Felix Fox
  • Adrian Hart
  • Tristan Hunter
  • Max Konnor
  • Jayden Marcos
  • Sir Peter
  • Seth Peterson
  • Roman Todd
  • Cutler X

Our tip? Roman Todd was named Performer of the Year at the recent Fleshbot awards. Is it Roman’s year? Challengers could include Dillon Diaz, Beau Butler, and Dante Colle.
