ATLANTIC CITY, NJ — Kelly Shibari is honored for the second year in a row as BBW Performer of the Year at the 2014 Fanny Awards. The accolade, dubbed “Whole Lotta Love,” was decided upon by fan votes and presented at the Exxxotica love and sex expo in Atlantic City, NJ on April 12.
“As my fans know, I’m a total social media addict,” says Shibari. “It allows me to interact with my fans on a daily basis, which inspires me to entertain them better with each scene I am hired to do. Fan awards, such as Exxxotica’s Fannys, are a true measure of how my interaction on social media pays off, and I love being able to celebrate this win with them. Thank you, fans, Exxxotica, and The Fannys!”
The multiple award-winning BBW adult star and sexual figurehead for chubby Asian girls made pop culture media site Fleshbot’s Top Ten Crush Object List in early 2014. The list includes superstar adult performers Bonnie Rotten and Asa Akira, as well as mainstream icons Miley Cyrus, Tina Fey, Emily Ratajkowski, and Lizzy Caplan. The Japanese performer with hazel green eyes continues to push the boundaries and win the hearts of what mainstream adult consumers have long been told was sexy. Her Twitter and Facebook following all rallied to log their votes daily.
Shibari continues, “To gain enough votes from my fans for two years in a row, and to earn BBW Performer of the Year again, is really amazing. I am extremely humbled, thrilled, and eager to bring them two brand new projects this year as my personal ‘thank you,’ and look forward to continuing to connect with everyone online.”
