The porn stars were out and well represented at the Hookie Awards in New York City last Friday. The eighth-annual International Escort Awards, part of BPX: The Black Party Expo, were held for the first time at BPM at the Out NYC, the host hotel for the Black Party this year. Co-presented by Rentboy and BPX, the ceremony was hosted by returning queen Leslie Jordan (above right), who MCed in 2011, and gorgeous Shequida, who dispelled rumors that they were in fact Sonny and Cher in drag! Together, they kept the fun show moving, in spite of some pesky sound problems.
Cocky Boys exclusive Duncan Black led the pack of porn stars with two wins (for Best Newcomer and Best Ass, which he told us meant the most to him), and Tommy Defendi was named Best Porn Star Escort (together in top pic). Hmmm, we wonder if this will drive up their rates! But the big award of the night went to Boomer Banks, who won the coveted Mr. International Escort of the Year. The superhung Raging Stallion exclusive seemed genuinely shocked when last year's top model Christopher Daniels (above left) presented him with the prize. Of course, Banks promptly unzipped and showed off what also nabbed him the Best Cock award (that one was a no-brainer!).
Other porn star winners: Leo Forte (below left) also received two awards for Best Kink and Best Style (snazzy outfit, gurlllll!); and Tony Orion (below right) was presented Best Bear or Cub by last year's winner, Heath Jordan. Angel Rock and Ty Roderick tied for Best Top; and Austin Wolf showed off his buff Best Body in a tight tank top. Blue Bailey (Best Boyfriend Fantasy) and Adam Russo (Best Daddy) also took home the gold (or the beveled-glass disk).
At one point during the hour-long show Daniels joked that as host Jordan got to sleep with all the regional winners, including Tommy and Boomer (bottom pic). Well, at least we think that Leslie knew it was a joke! Congrats to all the winners, escorts and their dedicated customers.
