THE 2012 CYBERSOCKET AWARDS
It’s always the first of the gay porn award shows of the year, and it’s always one of the most fun. Thanks to Cybersocket magazine head Morgan Sommer, this year’s Cybersocket Awards did not disappoint, with hosts Chico’s Angels, British singing sensation Luciana and the always amazing Chi Chi LaRue as DJ to help the evening’s show move along as smooth, entertaining and—most importantly—as quickly as possible!
Last year, you may recall I mentioned that Brandon Wilde had been thrown out of the nightclub by agent Howard Andrew for being under the age of 21. Well, this year he’s legal and wanted to make quite the comeback. He had the number one biggest booth at the show, with bottle service for all his friends, including all of the evening’s performers and winners. He looked like a million bucks, dressed in Gucci and D&G couture, partying it up until the wee hours of the morning. Happy for him!
Riley Price arrived on the arm of Dominic Pacifico, who is one of the featured stars of his new site, RileyPriceless.com. Late last year, Riley had been nominated for Best New Site by Cybersocket, and around the time he appeared on Cybersocket’s cover, he graciously bowed out of the running for that category, claiming he didn’t feel his site had been up long enough to warrant the nomination. Good for him!
Drew Cutler arrived on the scene—and where the hell has he been? Looking fabulous, Drew looks like he’s set for a comeback on the gay porn scene, and as always, we’re happy to have him. He recently shot two new scenes (his first in nearly a year) for Men.com, and he’s getting ready to shoot some films again with the top gay porn studios. Good luck to him!
Chi Chi LaRue was awarded Best Personality for the second year in a row. Consecutive wins are not a norm at the Cybersocket ceremonies, so this was certainly a surprise. She stood up on stage, looking happier and healthier than I’ve ever seen her, and called the win “a sobering experience.” I love her.
You know, I’ve won several Cybersocket Awards in my day as a porn blogger (I remember the first year, I paid to take a limo from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and back in the same night for the event—yes, I was Brandon Wilde once!) and they mean the most of any awards I’ve ever won because the award comes from the fans and the honor comes from Morgan.
Much props to all the winners, and a big thanks to everyone who helps put the show together each year.
Until we meet again!
