Skin Diamond Named Twitter Correspondent for XRCO Awards

LOS ANGELES—The X-Rated Critics’ Organization and Porn Star Tweet have selected adult performer Skin Diamond as the official Twitter correspondent for the 2012 XRCO Awards. 

One of AVN's 2012 Best New Starlet nominees, Diamond will deliver live coverage of the industry-only gala, taking followers from the red carpet to the moment of truth, as each award winner is announced.

“I’m honored and excited to be part of the XRCO Awards,” Diamond said. “Porn Star Tweet connects me with a huge audience and allows me to give them all a VIP pass to the show. I can’t wait to share the excitement with the fans. It’s going to be an incredible night!”

Born in America and raised in Scotland, Diamond is anything but the average porn star. As a fixture in the U.K. alt, fetish, and erotic world for four years, she was often seen gracing the covers of top magazines such as Bizarre. Her unique look caught the eye of mainstream fashion designers and Diamond found herself modeling for Louis Vuitton, American Apparel and Atsuko Kudo. However, Skin’s desire to further express her sexuality led her to drastically change her look and take on the mainstream porn world.

Diamond broke into the wild world of hardcore as a model for alt-porn leader Burning Angel and most recently appeared in AMKingdom’s upcoming Revenge of the Petites, a big-budget, story-driven adult comedy feature.

"We are thrilled to have Skin Diamond as our official Twitter correspondent for the XRCO Awards," said Pete Housley, CEO of the Naughty Tweet Network. “She’s edgy, she’s absolutely stunning and it’s easy to see why she has become a favorite with so many fans. The XRCOs are a prestigious, long-running tradition in the adult industry and we are excited to open this intimate event to the public through Twitter.”

This year marks the 28th anniversary of the XRCO Awards, first presented in Hollywood on February 14, 1985. It is the only awards show in adult entertainment that is not open to the general public. Admission is strictly by reservation or invitation only to recognizable members of the adult industry and to the voting members of the XRCO.

The XRCO Awards will take place April 12 at the Highlands in Hollywood, Calif.
