The UKAP Awards took place last last November (2013) at Spearmint Rhino in Central London and had a lively turn out given it was on a Monday rather than later in the week. Its relevance here is that I filmed and edited it. It didn't turn out bad considering I was called in late in the day and took it upon myself to film the event and thanks to Rio who volunteered to present it , the end result turned out better than I expected if you consider it was not even scripted, so the night was about as real as you could get impromptu.
Rio got fetish/ fashionista designer House Of Harlot to kindly donate the dress for the occasion hence why it got a screen credit. Being a member of UKAP I've often wondered why we didnt do more with the video of these events so here I am doing precisely that to see if it works. If you see some of the videos on here and want to buy them then you can do so via Your Choice.

You might have noticed that our Rio Lee has come leaps and bounds since her first foray into porn through Real Couples. Yep she debuted here on this very site and it took her another three years to decide on actually working for other companies and managed to avoid doing the very thing she did happily on her first video…Anal. I was curious to know why we were lucky to get this to which her response was, she didnt do porn for the money. She did it for fun. Thats not to say she didnt enjoy the studs she is seen with nowadays on some of her scenes done (mainly) overseas (and a few here for some companies).
Rio is definitely one of the jewels in our crown and we hope and wish to see the day she works that red carpet for the AVN which was her motive to present the video on the night. She would have done the award presenting on stage too but that was already arranged by the organiser already with Sarah Kelly and Sofia Rae.
I deliberately took a back seat by not submitting Real Couples for the award since I didnt win anything last year I took it as a hint that I'm a bit played out now and that should clear the way for new talent to shine since I've been doing it for over 10 years already and used to winning more than one award per event so I'm damned either way if I win as it looks like the event are favouring me because I'm a member of the association. Contrary to what some people think about these events, UKAP is the only award that is decided by judges on the merits of the product submitted rather than by the sponsors of the event, so to win a UKAP award was like being given the nod of approval and pat on the back of acceptance by ones peers rather than like buying your award to make it worth turning up on the night like some events I could mention….but wont
All in all it was a fun night with fun people and this video should give you some insight to what its like at these events now UKAP has relaxed its policy to include the public. For years the girls threatened not to turn up because of incidents with wandering hands and alcohol fuelled advances from men who thought the girls were game on by virtue of being porn stars meaning, they must be bang up for with anyone right? WRONG! Thats just the illusion stupid blokes have bought into.
That aside, the fans that turned out were largely decent and courteous if not a bit star struck on occasion to meet the stars of their wrist action fantasies in the flesh. Or maybe it had as much to do with the establishment we were at providing security. If this one was pretty good we hope 2014 is better. If it looks like the same people always winning then that should be the benchmark for UK producers to aspire to be better than next year and to be fair ther has been a lot of upheaval facing the adult business that changed the landscape a bit but I wont ruin your fun going into it.
