Cybersocket Surprise

This post is long overdue.

This year, I found myself with a Cybersocket nomination for Best Porn Star. No false modesty here, I am genuinely surprised! I can't begin to tell you how surreal it is to see my name listed with guys like Dean Monroe, Zeb Atlas, Adam Champ, Raphael Alencar, Connor Habib, Spencer Reed and others. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited and honored to be included but these guys are porn STARS and, let's be honest, I'm Carrie White on that list of competing prom queens.

In the four and a half years I've been performing, I have always thought of myself as a porn part-timer. My full-time job keeps me too busy for much socializing or making public appearances. I'm not a big drinker and I rarely go to clubs or bars. I'm usually asleep by 10:30-11:00 every night. What I enjoy (other than sex), is making films and posing for artists and photographers. I really love it. And I really love my fans and the people with whom I work.

Its trite to say "It's just an honor to be nominated" but it is! Since I really do feel like I've already been given an award - both for this nomination and for still having a place at the porn table - I want to thank my fans, the bloggers, my scene partners, artists, photographers, directors, crew members, casting directors, and studios - especially Ray Dragon at Dragon Media, Devon Hunter at Anteros Media, the folks at Phoenixxx.com, photographers Mark Henderson, Jeff Eason, and the boys at Titan for putting me on the porn map.

I'm still not sure if I will be able to attend the ceremony on January 9, 2013. If I do, I will be the one in the Gunne Sax prom dress standing in the corner with William Katt and Betty Buckley, nervously covering my dirty pillows, searching the rafters for a precarious bucket of pig's blood.

Thank you for your support!

  1. Bryan, my good man, I think your nomination is long overdue, as I find every image of you so compelling. Admittedly, I know very little about you, your personality, but in everything you do, I witness a generosity that is such an admirable trait. You give of yourself, in every scene or image, within whatever character you are portraying. Your performances are real, but at the same time the stuff of fantasy, and for allowing us to share in that fantasy, you should be recognized and acknowledged. You deserve it. Enjoy it!

    Oh, and just so you know, when you accidentally bang into that solitary man leaning against the wall in the dimly lit background, that would be me. Afraid of the spotlight, never wanting to be the center of attention, blending into the background. So take your position out front, basking in the glory, because it's where you deserve to be!

  2. Engaging, Charismatic & Sensual that just about describe you Bryan. But what I admire most in you is your modesty and honesty that my friend makes you a real person one can relates to and not just another Porn Star they are a dime a dozen but there is only one Bryan Slater. Stay true to yourself Bryan and I wish you just everything of the best always.
