Austin Andrew co owner and porn actor of AustinZane.com, the world’s first internet porn sensation and fast becoming a gay porn superstar is leading the nominee votes to co host the 2012 Grabby Awards. The awards are the Oscars of the gay porn industry and if chosen Austin will mount the stage with Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West in Chicago, Il over the Memorial Day weekend. The gay porn market has seen massive changes over the last few years, brought on by the ease of creating high quality movies that guys actually get off on. This is certainly a good time for gay porn which has never been so accessible via the internet and cheap camera equipment. One long time gay porn officianado said, gosh if I was a teenage boy growing up today I would never be leaving my bedroom. A note today’s educators might want to think about. Lol. Jason Sechrest, newly appointed head of public relations for AustinZane.com.told AVN News, “I think it’s indicative of a real change in the market,”. “Austin has never had the exposure of being in a movie for a major DVD studio, but what’s crazy is he didn’t need to! The audience of the Internet is truly unlimited and Austin’s fan base is obviously as large and devoted as that of those considered to be the biggest gay porn superstars of today. He’s the new breed of gay porn superstar.”
Zane himself is nervous and excited by the possibility of winning. “I love Chi Chi LaRue,” he says. “I would do it just to be able to hang out with her for two hours on stage. But if it weren’t for her being there, I’d be so scared. I hope I don’t pee myself. Or wait, would that get me even more votes if I do? Because I will if I need to!”
Last year, Austin Andrews and Zane Michaels utilized The Grabby Awards as a platform to launch their site, making this year’s ceremony also a special anniversary. Unlike other gay porn sites, Andrews and Michaels maintain and operate AustinZane.com entirely on their own, giving it an incredibly personal feel. From video editing to design, the site is a two-man operation.
