Bonjour mon amis!  Comment ca va?  Myles Shaffer here.  This article will be about the 39TH Annual XRCO Awards Show.  So, Let’s move on to the details.

But first, let me say that Phoenix Phires recently asked me to add her URL to Linktree to the latest article I wrote about her.  Since I felt that for a few reasons, it was too late to do so, I am going to do it here.  So, anybody who goes to will be able to get to all of her Internet links. [Now added to said article. -Ed.] Now then, let’s move along to the XRCO awards.

Tylee Texas, Tommy Gunn

Thursday evening, May 11, 2023, I drove to Boardner’s by La Belle in the Hollywood area to observe the 39TH Annual X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) Awards Show.  While there, I photographed most of the people that walked the red carpet.

The people I saw and/or spoke with that I knew or at least recognized, or got a chance to ask their names, were: Raymond “Monstar” Alexander, James Bartholet, Mick Blue, Sofia Burns, Charlie Comet, Charlie Forde, Chloe Foster, the reigning Tommy Gunn, Erica Icon, Kay Lovely, Haley Reed, Tee Reel, Hershel Savage, agent Tony Smith, Mark Spiegler the founder of Spiegler Girls (Mark walked the red carpet with several of his beautiful clients as always.), Tylee Texas, Angela White, and Matthew Worley.

At one point during the red-carpet event, after leaving the carpet, a good-looking young blonde-haired woman approached me and said, “I think I know you.”  While I didn’t recognize her, it turned out that she knew me from San Diego’s Exposé Gentlemen’s Club.  She used to be a house dancer there.  Now, she is working on getting into the adult film industry and becoming a feature entertainer.  Unfortunately, I didn’t catch her name.

During the red-carpet event, I stood to one side alternating between photographing the people and speaking with Tony Smith and Matthew Worley.

Once the red-carpet portion of the event had ended, I went farther into the club to locate and speak with Mick Blue for several minutes.

Before heading out to my car to begin the drive home, I stopped in the hallway and chatted with Tony Smith and Matthew Worley for several more minutes.

This year’s XRCO Awards was co-hosted by Jennifer White and Linzee Ryder, and the trophy girls were Caitlin Bell and Lily Starfire.
