(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Just days after accepting the Publisher's Choice Award in Las Vegas for Most Popular Journalist in the adult community, Jason Sechrest returned to his home in Los Angeles this morning only to be presented with another prestigious honor.
ManNet.com, a site that has celebrated gay erotica online since 1995 with millions served, announced the winners of their annual "Best of the Web" awards today. Sechrest's site, JasonCurious.com, was awarded "Best Launch 2001" in the category of "Porn Information, News, and Reviews."
"This comes as a total surprise to me," says Sechrest. "I had heard of ManNet's 'Best of the Web' awards, but didn't even realize I was in the running this year. We're still a relatively new site, having launched less than four months ago, so I never expected anything like this so soon. On behalf of the entire team at JasonCurious.com, many thanks go out to all our members, all who voted, and especially ManNet.com's indefatigable Publisher Butch Harris. So much hard work goes into JasonCurious.com on daily basis and to have our efforts recognized makes it even more a labor of love."

What *Important* People are Saying About JasonCurious.Com: (besides, "Who in God's name does this boy think he is anyway?!")
"I love it! [JasonCurious.com is] ... well-written, well-designed, interesting to read, and easy on the eyes. I'm impressed!" - Asia Carrera, adult film actress and webmistress.
"What may best be described as an intimate look at one young manís adventures in the straight, gay, and bisexual world of adult entertainment, JasonCurious.com is... slick [and] well-designed." - Tripp Daniels, AVN Online magazine.
"If you don't know Jason yet, you will. He is perhaps the most personable human that genetic evolution has yet developed. He lives his life on set and his ability to communicate what is funny, interesting, and even heartbreaking about a particular day allows me to forgive some self-promotion I would otherwise not find tolerable. It is nice to see a site that fits in the area between self-indulgent and boring. ... He is a goodwill tornado." - LukeFord.com
"Jason is a breath of fresh air as he has endless enthusiasm for the gay and straight porn industry. In a city where people are insanely into being conformists, he remains an individual. And hey, he'll probably end up being in front of the camera at some point. Just you watch." - will Clark, "Porn Star Confidential"
"Way too cute and talented! One of the brightest writers on the porn gossip scene today." - Matt Sizemore, "Sizemore Speaks"
"Sechrest promotes that labels are for groceries, not for people. [but] I'd certainly like to pick up an order of Jason at my local Shaw's Market." - Mark Adams, "Video View."
"Great interviews, news and reviews with a fresh approach. ... Jason is frighteningly bright, exemplifies what used to be called 'bisexual chic', and writes with style and verve. The fact that he has some endearing vulnerability and self-doubt also on display gives him the street cred he needs. A very attractive and thoughtfully designed site." - the Rainbow Report
"The site is as versatile as he is! It's not just for straight people, it's for the bi and gay boys too. ... Remember Curious George? Well, now there is the cute, sexy, and curious Jason." - Tony Gagliardi, "Gay & Loving it"
"He's tackling all the latest news and gossip of the adult industry and reporting it to the masses. I'd call him the next Luke Ford, but he's nice to people. ... And yet, doesn't he remind you of Zoolander?" - Paul Miller aka Flashman, Adult Stars Magazine.
