Misty Stone, Ed Powers Named 2013 XRCO Awards Hosts

HOLLYWOOD—The X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) has chosen ravishing adult star Misty Stone and gonzo forefather Ed Powers to host its 29th annual awards ceremony, taking place April 25 at Supperclub LA.

Stone's long list of credits includes the XRCO-nominated Men in Black: A Hardcore Parody from Wicked Pictures and the just-released OMG... It's the Spice Girls XXX Parody from Septo Studios/Paradox Pictures, as well as making the cover of Penthouse magazine's "Girls of Penthouse" edition and becoming the first African-American performer to be molded for leading male sex toy Fleshlight. She also just launched her own production company, Misty Stone Productions, and a new website at www.mistystone.com.

Powers, an XRCO Hall of Famer, helped pioneer the gonzo movement with the release of his first amateur movie, Bus Stop Tales, in 1988, and became best known for his still-going Dirty Debutantes series. Around 2006, he stepped away from adult, but is back in action now, garnering him an XRCO nom for Best Cumback.

"We are thrilled to have Misty Stone for the show this year," XRCO co-chairman "Dirty" Bob said. "She is one of the brightest stars in our industry and we couldn't be prouder."

He added, "Ed Powers is a legend. Who better to guide us through an evening of fun?"

The 2013 XRCO Awards show begins at 9 p.m. April 25, with red carpet kicking off 7:30 p.m. Supperclub LA is located at 6675 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028.

Sponsorship opportunities for the show are available. For information, contact Dirty Bob at (937) 299-6700.
