CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Award-winning performer Tommy Gunn has hired Hentai Public Relations to handle his publicity and PR affairs.

As CEO of Assassin Pictures, president of Gunn Models and winner of myriad honors from AVN, the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO), the Venus Awards and other industry bodies, Gunn is an ever-active personality with a ubiquitous presence in the adult media.

"Hentai Public Relations and its proprietor, Wayne Hentai, has the background, the experience and the reputation that I feel will help further my name," said Gunn. "He's highly recommended for his ability to communicate to the adult press in a clear and professional manner."

Gunn added that he plans to collaborate later this year on some screenplays with Hentai, a former editor at AVN and graduate of the University of Hawaii's School of Journalism and the Defense Department's Defense Information School. Hentai also represents Lexington Steele, Ryder Skye, Sophie Dee, Mercenary Pictures, VCX, Sinsation Pictures, Third World Media, Offset Entertainment, Elite Male and London-based studio Harmony Films.

"I'm ecstatic to be working with Tommy Gunn," Hentai said. "He's a gifted adult actor that's built an exemplary name with the award-winning titles he's been a part of. I look forward to helping him expand and grow his image and tell his unique story."

Gunn surely will have an extra need for media relations upon the release next fall of Digital Playground's Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, in which he reprises the title role of Captain Victor Stagnetti.
