Well TWO WHOLE YEARS have passed since the last time Altporn.net gave themselves a bunch of awards in their last shameless attempt at self promotion through a fake awards ceremony back in 2013.
To recap,… again,…
Altporn.net is a pseudo “alt-porn news site” that lists no vital source information or even valid authorship for it’s blurbs and articles outside of authors masking with member account handles on the website or just ‘altporn.net’ as the authorship. Several times they have run smear and defamation pieces against websites that are not part of their affiliate and ad share network. The site is primarily owned by the owners of Blueblood.com who established altporn.net mainly to retain a stake in the altporn industry when sites like Suicide Girls and Burning Angel began to outsell and out develop their own porn sites. The awards are only self serving as they either promote sites in blueblood.com and Altporn.net’s affiliate and ad share network or blow smoke up the asses of their competitors who are too big to do anything but cross promote with.
It is a true expression of the old saying, “If you can’t beat them, feverishly brown nose them and stay in business from the run off”. Though they have been asked several times over by several more credible adult entertainment news outlets, Altporn.net refuses to reveal how nominations are given and award winners selected. The awards have been running since 2010 and each year the nominations lineup may contain a few sites outside of this circle but the winners are always sites that blueblood needs to promote to keep their affiliates happy. In a few rare cases they have handed out some awards to unaffiliated sites but only if they pose no threat in competition and are small enough to be noteworthy without becoming a threat as a result of winning.
I figured that Altporn.net had grown tired of being exposed for this mediocre attempt at self promotion. It turns out they were just trying to lay low and hope that no one would notice if they tried it again after two years.
So what is in the bag this year for the so-called “altporn awards”?
Since the Altporn.net winner announcements were broken up over several blog posts on their site instead of just one list as in previous years, I pulled the full list from the ONE porn news site that covored the release of the “altporn awards”, fleshbot.
BEST ALTPORN MEMBERSHIP SITE WINNER – MULTIGIRL/COMMUNITY: Burning Angel.
STILL sucking up to Burning Angel I see.
BEST ALTPORN MEMBERSHIP SITE WINNER – SOLO GIRL: RazorCandi
On Altporn.net’s “A-list” affiliate links.
BEST WEBCAM SITE FOR ALTERNATIVE CAM GIRLS: MyFreeCams
STILL the worst contracting in all of adult entertianment and STILL on Altporn.net’s advertisement and affiliate deal.
BEST CAM GIRL: DenverMax (site choice), AlessaCrow (fan choice)
BOTH being exploited by Myfreecams
The first is on yet another site affiliated with altporn.net and the second I can actually agree with.
BEST FREE ALTPORN SITE (THAT ISN’T ALTPORN.NET): InkedAngels
A perfect storm of affiliate and adshare with altporn.net, blueblood, burning angel and myfreecams.
BEST FEATURE ALTPORN VIDEO: Burning Angel’s “The Nightmare Before XXXmas”
Again with the burning angel. Burning angel is also now on their “A-list” affiliates.
BEST ALTPORN AFFILIATE PROGRAM: SpookyCash
This is THEIR OWN fucking affiliate program and they have given it best affiliate program EVERY single time they have had these awards.
BEST ALTPORN NOVELTY/TOY: Bad Dragon’s Nocturne the Enderfang
This award is so pathetically token. Bad Dragon actually has some interesting pieces but is virtually unheard of. So much so that the owner is actually trying to use the altporn.net awards win as a means to promote the product.
BEST ALTERNATIVE EROTICA PHOTOGRAPHER: Forrest Black and Amelia G.
Both shooting for affiliated sites and both mediocre compared to several altporn sites not even nominated by altporn.net
BEST PUNK SHOOT: Razor Candi’s “Dead Metal” (site choice), Burning Angel’s “It’s My First Time 3” with Sydnee Vicious, Joanna Angel, Seth Gamble & Bill Bailey.
Razor Candi is yet another altporn.net affiliate and “A-list” member.
BEST GOTHIC SHOOT: BarelyEvil’s “Penny Poison Gargoyle” (site choice), Burning Angel’s “Double Penetrating Ophelia Rain” (fan choice).
Yet another affiliate site.
BEST NERD SHOOT: GodsGirls’ “Kelly The Demon King’s Spawn” (site choice), Larkin Love & Sheridan Love in Burning Angel’s “Comic Book Geeks and Cosplay Freaks”.
BEST BURNER SHOOT: BadMax’s “Atomic Bombshells with Masuimi Max, Christy Mack and Erin Micklow (site choice), BarelyEvil’s “Fire” with Pandora Von Kit (fan choice).
Aaaaaand more affiliates.
AMAZING, they didn’t even try to maybe throw in a few altporn sites that were not on their affiliate program but too small to compete. Which means Altporn.net must either no longer have serious competition or would not dare try to compete any more.
Seeing as they felt the need to fire up this bullshit wagon after a two year hiatus, the later is more likely.
There were of course plenty of competitors names in the nominations who of course did not win.
