(VAN NUYS, CA) -- On Saturday, January 10, Digital Playground's contract star Stoya™ took the stage at the 2009 AVN Awards to receive her trophy for Best New Starlet. In 2008 Stoya seized the adult industry's attention, receiving numerous awards and honors for her commencement in the business, the young star was the only person in the populated awards show surprised to hear her name announced by the presenter. Stoya arrived in the spotlight and is eager to show fans this is only the beginning.
Stoya's recent list of accolades include: The Venus award for Best US Newcomer, Best New Performer by XCritic.com, Best Newbie by RogReviews.com, Extreme Pornstar Showdown Champion by Fleshbot.com. Currently Stoya is nominated for XBIZ's Best New Starlet. Stoya attributes much of her success to social networking like MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. Her fan interaction is tireless.
''I am so incredibly happy for her,'' exclaims Samantha Lewis, Digital Playground's CEO. ''She came to Digital Playground ready to work and with a list of specific goals in mind, like taking over the world. Stoya is a stunning and gorgeous girl, and she is an example of the power of determination.'' Joone, Digital Playground's Founder says, ''Stoya has that 'it' factor that makes a star. Congratulations to her.''
Stoya says, ''It was an honor to be nominated with so many other freaking hot and beautiful girls. Thank you to each and everyone who jerks off to my smut! I look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Digital Playground as they've been a major factor in the management and oversight of my career.''
Paul Fishbein, President of AVN Media says, ''It was cool to see Stoya win the Best New Starlet award since she's from my home town of Philadelphia. I told her they should have a parade for her like they did when the Phillies won the World Series in October.'' Chris Thorne, XCritic.com Editor adds, ''While Stoya took home the best new performer award at this year's show, it was clear that she's well on her way to becoming one of the top adult performers in the industry. Put simply, Stoya is a superstar.''
Stoya™ is original, outrageous, and all natural. With striking features and porcelain skin, this tall and slender 22-year-old beauty is chipping away at the common misconceptions regarding the adult industry and sexual perceptions as a whole. Stoya’s youthful, pristine body envelops an old soul and intellectual mind. She is a rare combination of book and street smarts. One glance shows Stoya as cute and innocent, while another glance may reveal her stunning sexuality. Much like light and dark, Stoya’s life is dichotomous and unpredictable.
Stoya describes herself as a liberal thinker who has the freedom to pursue any job she wants, and sleep with whoever she desires. Stoya is surprised how a country engulfed in sex—from television to politics—can still blush about the act itself. She’s part of a new generation, where sex is as equally playful and fun as it is empowering and liberating.
After a brief stint in Hollywood, Stoya moved back to East Coast skyscrapers, preferring the brash, concrete reality of the East, to the 24/7 sand and glam of the West Coast. Stoya believes in doing what makes you happy, hence her affinity for cigarettes and bad boys.
Dubbed a ''force of nature'', Stoya is an unapologetic individual who will never settle for the path of least resistance. Her eagerness to discover her own course towards happiness caused her to graduate high school early and take off for the big city. Rebelling against social norms, Stoya found ways to make money that incorporated her varied passions, such as go-go dancing, fashion design, and fetish modeling. Never shy to display her body, Stoya is perfectly comfortable creating fetish outfits of duct tape and latex to go grocery shopping in.
Stoya is as confident about her mind as she is her body. Whenever the English language doesn’t include a word to allow Stoya to accurately express herself, the brazen star doesn’t hesitate to create the perfect word. To keep her mind sharp, Stoya loves to read 3 completely contrasting books to quench her need for knowledge. Science fiction, one of her favorite genres, is similar to the adult industry in the way it creates an alternate world of fantasy for fans to get lost in. Stoya invites her fans to get lost with her.
Starring in adult films for Digital Playground allows Stoya to explore every inch of her body on camera. She’s discovered that there are no limits in sex or life. Now Stoya wants to up the ante in each new movie, creating more excitement and explosive orgasms! Each day brings new sexual fulfillment to the luminous Stoya, who continues to live without a script.
Interact with Stoya and get to know her on her website www.StoyaXXX.com, a collection of her personal thoughts and photos. Stoya continues to appear on the covers and within the pages of the world’s leading magazines, and of course fans can watch her in Digital Playground’s best selling films: ''Stoya: Sexual Freak'', ''Jack’s POV 9'', ''Stoya: Video Nasty'', ''Jesse Jane: Lust'' ''My First Porn 10'', ''Cheerleaders'', ''Stoya: Sexy Hot'', ''Stoya: Atomic Tease'', and the epic blockbuster ''Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge''.
In 2009 look for Stoya to continue to rock the scene in ''Jack’s POV 13'', ''Stoya: Scream'', ''Stoya: Heat'', ''Jack’s Leg Show 4'', ''Stoya: Perfect Picture'', and ''Nurses''.
