CYBERSPACE—Leave it to porn to come up with unique prizes in contests: in this case a $3,000 8-inch gold-plated dildo. Up-and-coming performer Carmen Valentina has reached the finals of StarletSheet.com's Hottest New Pornstar of the Year 2012 Contest. The 64-girl Fan Vote contest is now down to just Valentina and Presley Hart, who are vying for a $3,000 gold-plated dildo made by Ayona. Fans get to vote who they think should receive the golden prize through Sunday night at 11.59pm EST.
Florida-based Carmen Valentina was featured in a recent Stormy Daniels Wicked movie titled Blow, and she is part of the VNA Network along with Vicky Vette, Julia Ann, Puma Swede, Francesca Lé, Sara Jay and other web stars.
Said Valentina, "Contests like this are super important for girls like me to get more exposure in the business, and I am grateful StarletSheet.com put me in the contest. When I first got involved I didn't think I had a chance. ... I was up against hot girls like Digital Playground's BiBi Jones and Nikki Delano in previous rounds. To be voted through so far by the fans is amazing. If I win the Golden Dildo, I'm gonna on my mantle as the first prize I've ever won in porn. Until I win an AVN or XBIZ Award I'd be more than proud to have a Golden Dildo … especially at airport baggage screening."
Jimmy Cooper of StarletSheet.com added, "I'd like to thank all of the girls who have participated in the tournament by lobbying for votes via Twitter and various other forms of social media and would also like to especially thank both of the tournament sponsors, Ayona Sex Toys, for supplying the two 24ct gold world-record-breaking prizes, and OC Modeling, which, with another strong year of finding hot new talent, had two girls (Victoria Rae Black and Ashlynn Leigh) reach the Final Four. Good luck to both of the two remaining, battle-tested new porn stars, Carmen Valentina and Presley Hart!"
Voting for the championship will last through Saturday night, at which point a winner will be announced.
