Porn's Top Stars Shone at the 2017 XBIZ Awards (NSFW)

Adult industry magazine XBIZ held its annual awards show Thursday, Jan. 12, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Think of the XBIZ awards as the Golden Globes to the AVN Awards' Oscars — it's in Los Angeles, it's more insiders — and you can see all your favorite porn performers dressed to the nines and ready to party. And party they do. This black-and-white photo essay by L.A. Weekly photographer-writer Gustavo Turner brings a documentary eye to some of the most photographed women and men in the business. Take a different look at the people who make one of the world's most popular entertainment forms happen, often right here in Los Angeles and environs.
