(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- At last! Adult film fans will finally have their say! The F.A.M.E. Awards (Fans of Adult Media & Entertainment) are set to make XXX history as the first truly interactive awards event ever [aside from the FOXE Awards].

Erotica LA will play host to the first annual F.A.M.E. Awards, to be held on Saturday, June 24th, at 9 pm at the LA Convention Center. What separates the F.A.M.E. Awards from various other award shows is that the top stars and films of the past year in adult will be chosen exclusively by the fans [just as they are for the FOXE Awards].

To make this "groundbreaking" event possible, industry leaders Adam & Eve.com (AdamEve.com), Genesis Magazine (GenesisOnline.com), WantedList (WantedList.com) and AVN.com (AVN.com) have partnered together to bring the F.A.M.E. Awards to life. "While there are numerous other award shows in adult businesses, we wanted to create one where the true critics - the fans - could pick their favorites in the categories that matter most to them," explains Dan Davis, Editor in Chief of Genesis. "The fans will be the ones pre-nominating the performers and movies, choosing the finalists, and ultimately naming the winners. These are their awards!"

"Adam & Eve is sponsoring these awards in order to give the fans of adult movies and entertainment a real voice to tell the industry what they like best. Other awards use industry insiders to determine winners - F.A.M.E. listens to the real consumers and users of the products," says Bob Christian, Vice President of Adam & Eve.

Fans above the age of 18 can go to the F.A.M.E. website (TheFameAwards.com) and vote on nominations in the appropriate categories until March 15th. The finalists in each category will be announced shortly thereafter based on the pre-nomination results and voting will continue until June 23.

"We always thought that an awards show based on consumer choices was a great idea. Obviously the AVN Awards are more for the trade and are picked by the critics. We're proud to be part of a show that gives the fans a voice, since they're the ones who ultimately decide which stars and products are popular. And we are especially proud to be in partnership with such fine companies as WantedList, Adam & Eve and Genesis magazine," says Paul Fishbein, president of AVN.

[Paul privately acknowledged that the FOXE Awards were actually the first awards show to be decided solely by the fans but for business purposes had to jump on board with this PR since "it would look funny if he didn't." (AVN owns Erotica LA) -Ed.]

"We're really honored to be a part of a project that involves so many great companies. For us, this award show is part of our ongoing commitment to bring the adult world closer to the fans," says Anh Tran, co-founder of WantedList.

Hosts for the F.A.M.E. Awards show will be announced in the coming weeks.
