The 13th annual NightMoves Adult Entertainment Awards Show activities completed five days of fun and sexy merriment in sunny Florida with about 40 adult performers gracing the stage at Bricktown 54 during the Sunday night show and awards presentations.
Co-hosting the Tampa Show (as it is often referred) were Ron Jeremy, Sean Michaels, Carmen Luvana and Jesse Jane. Also scheduled to host but unable to attend was Juli Ashton.
This unique venue intermixes local and national awards that are presented by the stars in attendance. The invitational event is paid for and sponsored by NightMoves Magazine. Feature dances at regular intervals added to the spice of the evening and those strutting their stuff on stage for the appreciative fans included Lori Alexia, Lexi LaMour, Rita Faltoyano, Vivian West, Olivia O’Lovely, and others.
Awards are given as decided by fans in written ballots and editor’s choices from NightMoves.

The appearances Friday at Vegas Showgirls in St. Petersburg and Saturday at the Tampa Gold Club went well for fans and stars alike.
Tracy Allen, wife of owner Paul Allen and svelte editor of NightMoves, was quite pleased with everything. “With a large group of this size there is usually some drama. This time there was very little drama," she said. "One of the girls did freak out over seeing a Palmetto Bug but hey – this is the Tropics, right? Overall we had no unmanageable problems with anyone and, after 13 years and hundreds of stars, I would rate this group in the top three. Everyone was very punctual, friendly, and fun to be around. Everyone was great and quite a few have already asked about returning next year.”
Allen continued, “In the past the Awards Show was always held on a Monday with everyone flying home early the next day. This year the Awards Show was switched to Sunday to provide an extra day of recuperation on Monday as a reward and appreciation for our stars. Monday we had our annual pool party in Palm Harbor and, that evening it was porn Karaoke at Club Skye in Ybor City hosted by Wankus of KSEX. Most of the people then left Tuesday.”
About a dozen stars also took part in a bikini car wash which raised $500 for hurricane Rita and Katrina relief. This will be given to the American Red Cross.
Awards Show night included other acts like nationally-acclaimed rapper B-YHON, a male revue, Robin, and current holder of Miss USA-At-Large, Jasmin Skies. Skies is a proud and quite hefty cross-dresser who took to the stage and, tongue-in-cheek, humorously interacted with Sean Michaels with simulated copulation.
Some of the adult stars who attended this series of events included: Charlee Chase, Sunny Lane, Sierra, Lisa Sparxxx, Ashley Blue, Missy Monroe, Carmen Luvana, Cheyenne, Tyler Faith, Kami Andrews, Brooke Haven, Mari Possa, Flower Tucci, Angelica Sin, Jersey Jaxin, Jesse Jane, Lexi Amore, Davia Ardell, Summer Haze, Courtney Cummz, Daphne Rosen, Maya (AKA Wendy) Divine, Brandie May, Vivian West, Rita Faltoyano, Heather Pink, Juli Ashton, Olivia O’Lovely, Trina Michaels, Jenny Hendricks, Kylee Kennedy, Katie Gold, Sky Lopez, Ashton Moore, McKenzie Lee, Ron Jeremy, Mike South, Wankus, Eric Masterson, Ethan Cage, Billy Glide, Tommy Gunn, Nick Sparks, Craig Valentine, and others. Two performers had to leave early: Gold and Blue.
