Who Should Win the Sex Tech Categories at the AVN Awards? (And Who Won at XBIZ)

And the award goes to…

Adult performers Angela White and Harli Lotts wear sliver dreses and hole an award in front of a purple background.

Get ready to pull out the champagne! This month the adult industry honors its own at two separate awards ceremonies: the XBIZ Awards on January 18 Los Angeles and the AVN Awards on January 27 in Las Vegas.

While both mainly celebrate the work of people in traditional pornography, they also showcase sex tech products and VR porn sites we often cover at Future of Sex. Our team won’t be attending either, though we will be in Vegas during the AVN ceremony. Will any of you be going?

Here we’ve posted the nominees for some of the relevant awards categories for each event. For companies and products we’ve covered, their names are hyperlinked to articles we’ve written about them. Which companies and products do you think deserve to win?

UPDATE: The list below shows the winners for the sex tech XBIZ Awards held on January 18.
