The XRCO Awards are given by the X-Rated Critics Organization annually to people working in adult entertainment. It is the only adult industry awards show reserved exclusively for industry members.[2] Once every calendar year, XRCO members are asked to submit their own nominations. Members do not have to vote in every award category, but they are asked to only vote in areas that they feel qualified.[3] The award ceremony usually takes place during the spring and no later than the first week of April.[4] Some of the works and workers are inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame during the awards.

The XRCO online archive is missing many results prior to 1993. The site encourages visitors to send in older results.

The awards have been called "an X-rated version of the Academy Awards" and "a combination high-school beer bash, Mardi gras and Frederick's of Hollywood lingerie show."[1] They have also been referred to as the "critics' circle awards for porn".[5]

In 2013, the XRCO Awards venue was changed from The Highlands nightclub[6] to Supperclub LA when the former closed.[7][8] In 2014, the XRCO Awards returned to the former Highlands venue now called OHM.[citation needed]

History[edit]

After the controversy and criticism of the best erotic scene victory for the movie Virginia in 1984 at the Adult Film Association of America awards, the X-Rated Critics Organization, and its "Heart-On Awards", were founded.[9] Jim Holliday was a founder and previously the honorary historian of the X-Rated Critics Organization.[1][10][11][12] After Holliday's death, the position of XRCO Historian was temporarily filled by XRCO founding member Bill Margold until 2006.[13]

The first XRCO Awards were presented on February 14, 1985,[14] where Ginger Lynn won a "veritable Triple Crown: 'Best Female Performer,' 'Video Vixen' and 'Starlet of the Year.'"[15] Until 1991, the awards were presented on Valentine's Day each year. The specific award categories at the XRCO Awards have changed over the years.[16]
