Tommy Pistol and Alexis Texas announced as hosts for the biggest awards show in porn
The 2015 AVN Awards will be hosted by porn superstars Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol. The announcement came yesterday and it’s already generating a fair bit of excitement within the industry. The AVN Awards are commonly referred to as “The Oscars of Porn” and the awards show itself ranks as one of the biggest nights of the year for the adult entertainment industry. So hosting it is a pretty big deal.
Both Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol have already achieved a huge amount of success with their pornstar careers. Alexis Texas is already one of the biggest names to have worked in porn over the past decade. And Tommy Pistol isn’t far behind, establishing himself as one of the most popular straight male performers in the adult industry.
Hosting the AVN Awards is considered to be a huge honor and one that’s reserved for only the top-tier of the porn elite. The selection of Tommy Pistol as a co-host is particularly newsworthy, as it marks the first time in 20 years that the show has had a male host. The last guy to take the stage as an AVN host was Steven St. Croix back in 1995. It’s also worth noting that every guy who’s ever hosted the event (Steven St. Croix, Randy West, Tom Byron, and Rick Savage) have gone on to be inducted into the AVN hall of fame.

In talking about her thoughts on being selected to host the 2015 AVN Awards, Alexis Texas made it pretty clear that she was excited for the opportunity, saying…
I’m really excited that I get the opportunity to host the AVN Awards. I was pretty shocked at first, because you never know with AVN who they’re going to pick to be a part of the show. I’ve been in the business for quite a while, and never got such a big role to play at the show, so I was pretty shocked, but I was definitely really excited and up to the challenge.
It’s a really big deal, and I’m pretty excited to host with Tommy. We have kind of a Sonny and Cher thing going on, which I think is going to bring a really fun feel. The fact that he has a really great personality, and I’m pretty funny myself, I think that it’s going to make for a really exciting, fun show.

Like his co-host Alexis Texas, Tommy Pistol also expressed a combination of surprise and excitement at being given the chance to host the 2015 AVN Awards show. He had this to say about receiving the honor…
What can I say? I am honored and ecstatic beyond belief. I have been going to the AVN Awards Show for a long time. I never thought hosting it was even a real possibility. Thank you, AVN, for trusting me on such a special event. I promise I’ll make you proud!
