Worthless front cover 2 Destroy Me 4 front cover

We’re going up in the world, boys and girls. PascalsSubSluts has been nominated in six categories in the AVN and XBiz Awards, both of which take place in the States in January. After our two wins at the recent UKAP Awards in London (Best Niche Website and Best-Selling DVD for SubSlut Grannies) we’re well chuffed.

The AVN noms are for:

• Best BDSM Movie (Worthless)

• Best Foreign Series (Destroy Me)

• Best Male Performer of the Year (Dr P)

And we’re up for the following at the XBiz Awards:

• Foreign Studio of the Year (PascalsSubSluts)

• Foreign Non-Feature Release of the Year (Destroy Me 4)

• Businesswoman of the Year (Laurel)

I’d like to give a big whoop for the last entry on that list. Laurel runs ARL Cash with her husband Raja over in California and if we hadn’t teamed up with these guys three years ago then there’s no way we would have been able to build PSS up into the successful series it is today, let alone get recognised by the industry in the way we have done with these nominations. And bows too to the other guys in the office. You’re all great.

But the nom’s for Laurel and it’s thoroughly deserved. It’s all well and good making a strong product (which is what we hope PSS is) but if you haven’t got someone onboard who knows how to push the marketing side of things then there’s not much point having a product at all. Thank you, Laurel.

I’m particularly proud of the XBiz nom for Foreign Studio of the Year. In fact I think it’s pretty crazy. Here’s who we’re up against:

• 21 Sextury

• abbywinters

• Harmony Films

• Immoral Productions

• Marc Dorcel

• Nacho Vidal Productions

• Private Media

• Rocco Siffredi Productions

• Viv Thomas

Li’l old us, up against all those Goliaths. And all out of a shabby little flat in Southend-on-Sea. Go figure.
