VOTE VOTE VOTE!

Each year the Prowler European Porn Awards (PEPA) collates tens of thousands of public nominations and votes to find out who your favourite Pornstars, DVDs and Websites are in the year gone by. We are always looking for ways to make each year bigger and better than the one before. In 2019 we were pleased to launch our brand new voting system to make voting fairer and easier to use. After 2018’s inclusion of Europe into the awards, we received record numbers of votes and nominations highlighting the need to focus on how to improve this system. We teamed up with developer Ollie Cook, who has designed and built a new system specifically for the Prowler European Porn Awards’ unique requirements. One of our main aims in doing this was to tighten the security around voting to ensure the awards remain fair and the rightful recipients get the accolades they deserve on the night. We have added a social media login option to ensure our system is easy to use by each and every one of the people voting.

Ollie, who has eighteen years’ experience with tech start-ups and large online businesses, came to us to offer his services after seeing where our systems could improve. Ollie says: “I have been coming to the awards for the last 4 years and really enjoy the night however I found the voting system to be a little outdated. I really enjoy observing how a system is used, making suggestions for improvements and finally implementing them. It’s really important for the awards that the system balances security with ease-of-use, with as few barriers to voting as possible. With the new system, you can vote securely with only a few clicks thanks to the social media login integration. I am thrilled to have been able to team up with PEPA to deliver these improvements for both the site managers and the end users like me”. Thanks to Ollie we were able to launch our new system when nominations began on the 14th February 2019.

Some of the key features of the new system include dynamic auto-suggestion to ensure names are spelled correctly and your nomination gets to where you want it to go. PEPA staff member Ryan James says “It was great to work with Ollie to develop this new system. It has been so much fun designing something that meets our needs and is not only intuitive but is easy for everyone to use”.

IT’S NEVER BEEN SO DIVERSE – Meet the panel!

LONDON March 29th 2019

With voting well underway, it’s the right time to introduce this year’s Panel who, like you, will be looking through all the nominees and putting together their thoughts on who most deserves the title of “Best International, Hottest European’ etc.

This year’s panel is more diverse than in any previous year.

Sex Educator and Brand Manager at adult retailer Clonezone, Topher Taylor said: “After more than eleven years of experience in the adult industry, I can talk extensively about everything from Pornstars and porn to sex toys and trends and I am honoured to have been invited to Chair this years panel, which, for the first time, includes two female panellists, Suzanne Burke and Fiona Warner who’s valuable perspective will help with our deliberations.

With a wealth of industry knowledge, Manfred Kraess, the owner of GayShop joins the panel for the second year running together with first time judge, J. Baker, founder and creator of HotMaleStuds. J. Baker said: “as the owner a leading industry blog, I hope to bring to the panel, a relevant and up to date insight into today’s up and coming European talent”.

Adult retailer Prowler Stores channel the porn buying public’s viewpoint through Michel Good who is one of the sales team at their flagship Soho store.

Our sixth-panel member brings a viewpoint that has not been represented on the panel before. Junior Goh, refers to himself as a Porn Super Fan and with his love for all types of porn and has attendance at porn events all across Europe, Junior’s perspective is a very welcome one.

After talking to this year’s Panelists, it’s exciting to know that there is such a cross section of people and knowledge.

Voting closes just before midnight on Thursday, May 8th so, if you haven’t voted already, please make a note, so you don’t miss the opportunity to add your crucial vote to the votes cast by others that are hoping to see their favourites on stage accepting European’s most prestigious gay porn award.

Tickets are on sale now at OutSavvy.com at £20.

THIRSTY BITCHES – Live on the red carpet!

LONDON – March 22nd 2019

One excellent way to measure the success of an event like the Prowler European Porn Awards might be to look at which media outlets are attracted to come along to cover the night. It’s true, in the past Channel 5 dropped in with Ashley Ryder, Vice sent their people and this year we have two of the thirstiest media bitches in London, Global Podcasters Keyth and Aamyko who together, are the Thirsty Bitches.

These two polar opposites bumped into each other at a mutual friends party. Aamyko told us “I was loud, obnoxious and annoying… I’m kind of surprised that we managed to hit it off enough to want to talk to each other a second time when we crossed paths in a bar called the Edge in Soho” Aamyka continues “Keyth was Dj’ing in the bar and I’d just come back from a season in Mykonos”. Keyth takes over, “We just hit it off from then, or at least I did, I loved Aamyko’s style, his personality and his music is amazing, and that’s how this adventure all got started”

I wanted to find out who had the idea of Thirsty Bitch, Keyth or Aamyko. Aamyko told me “I was always saying shit like “oh she’s thirsty..” etc. I never used it as something negative. I think being thirsty in life gets you what you want. We kinda both came to the idea of calling our club night that we started in Heaven “#ThirstyBitch.” By that point, I had used the term so many times that it was a given that we would become known as Thirsty Bitches. When we decided to start our podcast, it was a no-brainer in terms of the name we would use since we both truly are Thirsty Bitches.. (even though Keyth would never admit to that!)”. “It was like that Romy and Michelle moment” Keyth cuts-in. “When she invented Post-It notes, and I suggest they were made yellow! Teamwork every time with us two! For the Podcast we just dropped the # and kept the brand but currently looking to collaborate and bring the club nights back, much bigger, much better and much thirstier” Keyth explained.

Getting to know these thirsty bitches has been entertaining, and I have watched my share of Podcasts, so I found myself asking them “What do you both bring to the Podcast world that nobody else does?” “We wanted to break the norm of the stale environment London has started to become. A cross between all the licensing rules in London, everything being sold off as developments and the changing trends of the LGBT scene with the use of apps and ‘Home Parties’. We have a long term goal and not just in London, the Podcast is only the start, plus it’s such an amazing new media that people have started jumping on board right around the world. We have A LOT of U.S. listeners and podcasts are huge out there. We have just started on phase two which is being hired as a DJ-duo act going out as Thirsty Bitch DJs, and with summer coming up there’s a lot more about to happen” Keyth explains.

“The thing that makes our podcast different is that both Aamyko and myself have great chemistry. We are totally Ying & Yang when it comes to prudishness, while I have my past and once a darker side I am now just as happy to stay in with a nice cup of Yorkshire Tea with oat milk (yes I’m one of those), read a nice book and go out as an when the bottle calls.. I’m quite introvert, whereas Aamyko is the Thirstiest, extrovert who loves a bit of ‘big daddy dick’. I was going to add more, but I’m sure he will describe himself” So I turn to Aamyko to get his answer “Well, for me personally, I’m a VERY open minded person, and I like to talk about pretty much ANYTHING. From porn to music to self-acceptance there’s nothing that’s off limits which I think a lot of podcasts are afraid to talk about for fear of losing sponsors” Aamyko continues “We combine music and witty, entertaining guests, we push boundaries to what you can do on podcasts yet keep a degree of LGBT responsibility. Our first podcast was a World AIDS day special where we did a World first for a podcast – an HIV instant test on air. We have discussed how to love yourself with sex toys and have a porn actor demonstrate the product with his opinion and next we are about to broadcast live with a possible first – a LIVE Porn Awards Podcast. Plus we are a lot of fun, raw and don’t hold back”.

If these guys are going to broadcast LIVE from the Prowler European Porn Awards, I think we should all know how much porn they watch and all about their favourite Pornstars so I asked for a list.

Keyth – Okay problem I have is that I change my mind so often. I used to be a big fan of Bel Ami in my early 20s… Peters Twins dare I say, Larrs Norgaard more recently, then loved the guys from Randy Blue, Jake Davis, Nicco Sky, Brendon Foster now I’m in a Cocky Boys & Next Door Studio phase I guess… Anthony Romeo, Allen King, Markie Moore, Blake Mitchel… more locally Kayden Gray is a hottie. Christ, I could go on forever, so many lovely hotties. Maybe I am Thirsty after all.

Aamyko: Wow, that’s a difficult one! There are so many out there at the moment that is literally, HOT AF. So let’s see James Bennet, Brenden Patrick, Alberto Esposito, Francois Sagat to name a few.. and my favourite porn site, well, for me I’m into obviously Sean Cody, Chaos Men, Island Studs, Bareback Hunter and a ton of others… My nights are busy.

Both of these two thirsty bitches have been fun to get to know, meet them LIVE on the RED CARPET at this year’s Prowler European Porn Awards on May 16 at one of London’s thirstiest nightclubs, FIRE in Vauxhall. Doors open at 8 pm and tickets are available online at OutSavvy.com.

2016 X-Factor Favorite James Hughes to sing at 2019 PEPA’s

LONDON – March 4th 2018

Prowler European Porn Awards (PEPA) has today announced that one of Scotland’s best exports will be in London on May 16th to appear live on stage to entertain a capacity crowd which will include hundreds of Europeans top Pornstars. X-Factor favourite and super Twink James Hughes will take to the stage as part of the night’s ceremony and star-studded line-up.

The event which will take place at one of London’s top night spots, FIRE Vauxhall and is now in its sixth year and defiantly Europeans biggest gay porn event.

James discovered he could sing when his teacher, Miss O’Neil told him that he would be playing ‘Lionel’ in the schools stage musical adaptation of the famous film ‘Back to the future’. Encouraged by his father, James made it all the way to Nicole Scherzinger’s house in France, before finally dropping out of the competition.

Asked about his porn likes, James told us that signing to a room full of Pornstars and fans was his idea of total heaven. A big user of the tube GayMaleTubes.com, James spends most nights hunting for Straight Guy, Gay Gay scenes to get off to and dreams about being the cente of attention in an orgy with guys of all ages.

“I have some great ideas planned for the night, my show will be the best I have ever done and I know that the surprises I have in mind will bring the house down in the best possible way!” Said James.

Benjamin Willis, Co-founder of the event said: “James is going to give all the Twink lovers wet dreams for months to cum”.

Tickets are on sale from OutSavvy.com at £20.00 + booking fee.
