ATLANTIC CITY, NJ—Curvy adult performer Kelly Shibari was named 2013 BBW Female Performer of the Year at the inaugural Fanny Awards, April 20 in Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Exxxotica love and sex expo. The award, which was previously dubbed the Hungry Hungry Hottie and is now called the Whole Lotta Love award, was decided by a fan vote.
“I can only attribute my Fannys win to my fans,” said Shibari. “From my fanbang film Kelly Shibari Is Overloaded to how they interact with me on social media on a daily basis, it really is the fans that drive me to keep making sexy movies.
“A special thanks to the organizers of Exxxotica and The Fannys for allowing the fans a venue to show their love and for being open-minded and including niche categories,” she added. “I am truly appreciative.”
Shibari signed autographs during the 3-day expo for thousands of attendees at the Photos by Ted booth, where fans were also able to purchase Shibari’s DVDs and take photos with her.
“We purposely made our award show categories as diverse and sexy as Exxxotica has a tradition of being,” states The Fannys director, Dan Davis. “Our Whole Lotta Love category was one of the most popular to vote on, and we are proud to present Kelly Shibari with the Fanny.”
Held at the Trump Taj Mahal’s Mark Etess Arena, Exxxotica Atlantic City was the newest location for the popular adult event. In addition to The Fannys, the expo featured over 100 adult stars, vendors, seminars, stage shows and more.
