LAS VEGAS - ImLive.com will present the winners of AVN's 2008 Male and Female Performer of the Year awards with special prizes at the upcoming 25th annual AVN Awards.
The Female Performer of the Year will receive a 1-karat diamond pendant, while the Male Performer of the Year will receive a Rolex Submariner watch. The gifts are valued at $6,000 each.
“It’s extremely exciting to be able to add some value to the AVN Awards beyond the prestige," said Adult Video News president Paul Fishbein. "We’re happy that IMLive is going to give some really valuable prizes to the winners. These performers work hard all year long, and it’s great to present them with this added reward."
"IMLive is very happy to present the AVN award-winning performers with these valuable prizes," said Yuval Kijel, director of business development at ImLive. "This sponsorship goes along with the success of our Celebrity Porn Channel, which is doing great after less than six months. We have many stars already, and we are about to join with some major studios to sign more big names."
IMLive's Celebrity Porn Channel offers members the opportunity to chat with such A-list XXX stars as Belladonna, Tera Patrick, Joanna Angel, Sunny Lane, Alektra Blue, Hillary Scott, Sunny Leone, Nina Mercedez, Aria Giovanni and Ava Rose.
As a gold sponsor of the 2nd annual FAME Awards, IMLive presented Tera Patrick with a Tiffany necklace in honor of her Favorite Female Performer win. Favorite Male Performer Randy Spears received a Rolex watch.
AVN contacted reigning Male Performer of the Year Tommy Gunn for his reaction to the news. Gunn is up for the honor for the second year in a row.
"I’m totally blown away," said Gunn. "That would be a tremendous gift, especially after having won the category in 2007. To receive such an additional gift would be perfect -the cherry on top of the sundae."
