The 2014 XBIZ Awards were handed out on January 24th at the Century Plaza Hotel in California. HotMovies.com is happy to announce that we have been named the 2014 XBIZ VOD Site of the Year. This is exciting news for us, and we’d like to thank all the fans out there who helped us win this. It was an exciting night full of stars and all of the best people in the industry. But since most of us aren’t lucky enough to attend this event and see all of these lovely ladies dressed up in person, some pictures will have to do.
Here’s Remy LaCroix looking beautiful as ever posing with her award. I really like the outfit she chose. So many of the stars seemed to forget that they’re at an awards show for porn and tried to be way too glamorous. Remy was the perfect mix of looking good but fitting in the situation.
Then this happened. Skin Diamond and Aiden Ashley taking a break from the festivities for a little make out session. I don’t think anyone was complaining.
James Deen and Riley Reid took a moment to joke around and pretend that their trophies were penises.

As you can probably tell it was a fun night full a wide array of characters. But as always, it comes down to you guys, the fans, that make all of these awards possible. So thanks, and let’s hope we never get tired of watching porn.
Diane Duke explains the adult performers’ 2257 information on PornWikiLeaks, and AIM Healthcare’s closure.
During the first part of April, the Free Speech Coalition began to receive calls from worried industry members about the existence of Porn Wikileaks.
At that point, it was still unclear from where the information came, as there was what looked like medical information as well as 2257 information. Soon we learned that it was likely that AIM’s database had been hacked and that some 2257 records may have also been compromised.
Almost simultaneously, I learned, from a conversation I had with AIM CEO Sharon Mitchell, that AIM’s clinic “temporarily” was closed due to a “paper work issue.” Apparently, L.A. County had closed the clinic based on a filing technicality. I was assured by Sharon that the paperwork issue would soon be resolved, that the database was still up and the draw stations were still active. Sharon assured me that the AIM clinic would reopen.
Almost immediately thereafter, AIM was sued by two individuals for breach of medical records. I learned that the litigation expenses for individuals suing AIM were covered by AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
AHF has been attacking the adult industry with frivolous lawsuits, Cal/OSHA and labor complaints as well as protests and misleading inflammatory press conferences for the past two years. AHF has been especially relentless in their attack on AIM.

Well folks, among all the buzz of the 2009 AVN Awards, I don’t want you to forget about the XBIZ awards. I know sometimes they seem like they aren’t as exciting as the AVN Awards, but that’s only because there aren’t categories like “Best All Girl Group Sex.” Instead, XBIZ has categories like “VOD Company of the Year”, Which we just so happen to have been nominated for, and won last year.
This is pretty exciting news because at HotMovies we pride ourselves on having the largest, best and most easily accessible movie library for our viewers. I’m not going to list the competition, but let’s just say that I think we have a good shot, as long as industry people don’t want to be unfair by awarding us 2 years in a row. But hey, give praise where praise is due- HotMovies.com
. (I should be the spokesperson or some shit).
We have an extensive library and we even had a HUGE party to celebrate our 100,000th movie!
Feel free to check out the pictures from our 100 Grand Gala at Driven by Boredom.
