Saturday evening saw a festive gathering of industryites at Paladino's Night Club for the fifth annual KSEXradio.com Listeners' Choice Awards, recognizing the favorite porn stars and on-air personalities of the Internet radio station's fans.

Hosted by AVN Hall of Famer Sunset Thomas, the show was preceded by a red-carpet entrance for stars and a barbecue-style dinner. The festivities themselves were laid back and a little raucous (despite the loud imploring over his mic of KSEX program director Wankus to "shut the fuck up!" along with the wisecrack, "What do you think this is, the XRCOs?").
Easily the best acceptance comment of the night came from Jason Sechrest, who upon winning the award for Best Insight Into the Adult Biz, remarked, "And yet I just called Monica Mayhem Stormy Daniels."
A couple of mainstream celebrities showed up at the event — namely Bobby Brown and Jeff Conaway of Grease and "Taxi" fame — and extensive musical sets were provided by well-known hip-hoppers Slapbak and Layzie Bone.
Porn personalities present included: Julia Ann, Jason Sinclair, Chris Cannon, Gia Givanna, Monica Mayhem, Nicki Hunter, Satine Phoenix, Mia Smiles, Roy Karch, Cara Lott, Jay Moyes, Mika Tan, Jasmine Byrne, Harry Weiss, Cleopatra of the Nile, Taylor Wane, Mike Moz, Tommy Gunn, Sunny Lane, Tyler Faith, Evan Stone, Mr. Pete, Billy Glide, Tricia Devereaux, Jimmy D., Rob Spallone, Syren, Mike Ramone, Dick Nasty, Layla Jade, Steven St. Croix, Jack Lawrence, Dino Bravo, Isis Ray, Monstar, Dee, DCypher, Tee Reel, Casey Parker, Rebecca Love, Ethan Cage, Alec Knight and a late appearance by Max Hardcore.
