Pornhub Awards Show Set to Debut in September

CYBERSPACE—Adult tube site Pornhub today announced the debut of the Pornhub Awards Show. Providing its own take on fan awards, Pornhub will celebrate the adult entertainment that engaged its audiences the most throughout the year.

Using data from the hundreds of billions of views the site receives over the course of a year, the 2018 Pornhub Awards Show will recognize the porn stars, studios, scenes and trends that attracted the most attention from porn fans. Winners will be revealed at an event that will be held in Los Angeles on September 6.

"Never before have our community’s unique tastes and preferences been reflected and celebrated in anything of this magnitude," said Corey Price, VP Pornhub. "This year, we have tabulated hundreds of billions of data points to know what was not only watched, but enjoyed, re-watched, shared, discussed and ultimately, provided the most entertainment to our audience. From that, we invite our community to share in choosing the very best of the best, and we will be recognizing those true winners with an amazing night."

Although attendance at the event itself will limited to a invitation-only set of VIPs, nominated top performers and studio executives, the show will be promoted, featured and broadcast on the homepage as well as on several partner and sponsor company websites.

Pornhub plans to build anticipation with six weeks of homepage promotion featuring the Pornhub Games sponsored by Chaturbate, in which top porn stars and cam girls will compete head-to-head. A number of games and contests will match up the fans' favorites to see who can win the gold and earn a slot as an award presenter at the main event.

In another twist, the 2018 Pornhub Awards Show will be broadcast in live-streamed, 360-degree virtual reality—along with the ability to be experienced in the world’s first Social VR virtual world, Red Light Center. New technology will be revealed that will allow viewers from anywhere in the world to attend the show itself as an Avatar and interact with millions of other Avatars.

So, while the actual venue will be industry only, the virtual reality venue is expected to host virtual fans and attendees from all corners of the globe.

The show, and all episodes of the Pornhub Games will be featured on for at least one year following the live broadcast.

The 3D 360-degree broadcast of the show in VR will be provided by HoloFilm Productions, a leading producer of filmed VR content. The social VR experience and VR World is being provided by Utherverse Digital, Inc., a social VR platform that has been in operation for more than 10 years.
