Dangerous Curves: XCritic Attends the First Annual BBW Fan Fest Awards
By Rob Perez
History was made last night at the first annual BBW Fan Fest Awards at the Tuscany Suites and Casino where for the first time ever, a who’s who of the BBW adult community from around the country gathered in one place to honor their own. The BBW Fan Fest awards ranged from Icon, Trailblazers, Plumper of the Year, Feedee, to the more traditional Newcomer of the Year, Studio of the Year, to the night’s only standing ovation, XXX Performer of the Year. Sienna Hills, the first recipient of the prestigious award, had the audience cheering as she declared that BBW porn is a “Preferance, not a fetish.” She capped off her speech to roaring applause by ending it with, “We are taking over!”

After a rousing introduction by co-hosts Kelly Shibari and April Flores, the festivities kicked off with the night’s first award, for Fetish Performer of the Year which went to six foot three model Amazon Amanda. She faced tough competetition as she was nominated along with Kelly, April, Miss Mina and Sassy BBW. Co-host April Flores, disputedly the community’s most well known BBW model/performer won Creative BBW of the Year. She said in her speech, “We’re all big, confident plus size people . . . big, beautiful and proud!”

Plumper/BBW of the Year (which goes to women on the smaller end of the BBW scale) went to the always outrageous and beautiful Julia Sands who, surprisingly, gave an emotional speech. In the industry a brief time, Julia thanked the audience for “opening [their] arms to me.” Popular web model Trashley Treasures won the Fan Favorite award and accepted the award by calling every single girl in the room “the hottest sluts ever!” Brie Brown, the woman responsible for the annual BBW Bash held every year in Las Vegas, won the very special Icon Award and announced, “I love BBWs . . . it’s a community I support." The hosts of the popular Internet radio BBW-themed show Sin City Bounty won Special Recognition and thanked, “all the douchebags of the world” who all said there is no audience for the BBWs.

After a brief, raunchy and hillarious stand up act, the show continued with Julia Sands announcing “The stand is about to collapse!” Kelly Shibari’s Paddedkink.com was awarded Fetish Site of the year, also beating out tough competition from earlier winner Amazonamandaandfriends.com, Sassybbw.com, Missminabbw.com, and Camgirlkitten.com. After being told by Kink.com that she wasn’t size appropriate, Kelly said “Fuck you! I’m going to do it!” But the biggest applause of the night went to Plumperpass.com as it won Premium Site of the Year. Clint Works, CEO of Sensational/Plumper Pass accepted the award on behalf of all its employees (seven strong), and thanked the models and fans for supporting the BBW community.
Special recognition was given to the sponsors of the event, Fleshlight and AllBBWCams.com. Julia Sands, working the AllBBWCams booth all weekend, accepted the award on behalf of AllBBWCams. As she approached the podium to accept the award had a wardrobe malfunction as her right breast popped out of her dress, garnering a huge laugh from the audience.
Below is the happy recap of all the night’s winners and pictures of all the craziness at the red carpet and after party!
