YNOT Cam Awards Opens Nomination Process, Announces 2019 Categories and Launches New Website

Fans and industry can now visit the new website to recommend
their favorite live cam and clips models for a 2019 YNOT Cam Awards nomination.

Hollywood, CA – YNOT Events has launched a new website for the YNOT Cam Awards and opened up the nomination process for the 2019 show, which returns to Hollywood on August 7th and will be hosted by cam superstar Anna Bell Peaks.  Cam fans and industry professionals can suggest their favorite performers for up to three award categories, but all suggestions must be received by 11:59pm PDT on Friday, June 14th.  

While most of the awards from 2018 have returned, a few were phased out to make room for some new categories that were added to expand YNOT’s inclusivity goals and better represent the live cam and clips community.

“It’s important to us that the categories we choose positively represent the amazing and diverse community of performers working in the live cam and clips sectors of the adult industry,” says Connor Young, CEO and founder of the YNOT Cam Awards.  “We take that responsibility very seriously. Our performers and the platforms they use to broadcast have changed the adult entertainment industry in profound ways, creating an environment of opportunity for all where on-camera performers maintain full artistic control and work in safe and comfortable locations.”

While the suggestion period ends on June 14th, the voting period will begin the following Monday, June 17th, when YNOT announces the five finalists for each award category.  Voting, which is open to cam fans, performers and industry executives, will run through July 19th.  Winners will be announced live on stage in Hollywood.

“All models interested in a nomination can find detailed information about the process on the new YNOT Cam Awards website,” adds Young.  “Since we limit finalists to just five per category our nominees have a very good chance to win, so we are looking for performers who are eager to participate in the process and willing to stay engaged from start to finish.  The YNOT Cam Awards is about recognizing models for their accomplishments and their hard work, and it’s also about showing off our amazing community at its best.”

All four of the Platinum sponsors from the 2018 show are back for 2019 as ImLive, Chaturbate, Studio20 and Flirt4Free have all agreed to return.  This year the live broadcast is sponsored by StripChat and will again be free to watch for cam fans and industry all over the world. There will be a live broadcast of the Red Carpet on Vine Street followed by VIP dinner, pre-show entertainment, the award show, and finally the after party.

“Models, please know that these sponsors have made it possible for us to produce this night to honor you in Hollywood,” says Jay Kopita, co-owner of YNOT. “Not all companies invest back in the community, but the ones who do definitely deserve credit for caring about performers and taking a proactive role in expanding the cam and clips market for everyone.”

This year’s YNOT Cam Awards will be preceded by YNOT’s all new #Cammunity cam model summit, happening at the W Hollywood Hotel, just yards away from The Avalon Hollywood where the YNOT Cam Awards will take place.  Models and performers interested in attending #Cammunity can register for free for a limited time at cammunity.ynotcam.com, and the event is also open to industry executives who work in the adult interactive space.

Current Gold sponsors for the YNOT Cam Awards include iWantClips, Cams.com and FreeWebCams.  Companies interested in sponsoring the event or reserving a VIP dinner table should contact YNOT through its ZenDesk contact form.  Press passes are available to qualified media outlets. More information about obtaining a press pass to the YNOT Cam Awards can be found on the event website. Individual tickets to YNOT Cam Awards can be purchased through Eventbrite.

Grooby Recommends Using CET in Light of TTS New Medical Questionnaire

XBIZ released an article yesterday regarding Talent Testing’s puzzling new medical questionnaire. To note, both Talent Testing (TTS) and Cutting Edge Testing (CET) are considered to be the industry-standard for testing and what we require from our performers.

We highly recommend giving XBIZ’s piece a read [here] before continuing.

To summarize, in addition to a required retinal scan, performers are now required to fill out a Medical History Questionnaire. There are concerns about why the retinal scan is needed. As noted in XBIZ’s piece by multiple performers, we are uncomfortable by the multiple-choice question option that asks which sexual activities the individual participates in.

As XBIZ writes:

This last multiple-choice question, #8, offered the options “Solo,” “Anal,” “Oral,” “Girl-Girl,” “Boy-Girl,” “Crossover,” “Boy-Boy (Top)” and “Boy-Boy (Bottom/Recipient).”

“Not only is question #8 vague,” [Jessica] Drake told XBIZ, “it also certainly stigmatizes and shames other already marginalized groups of sex workers, and time has shown that shame makes people hide their activities even more.”

We are waiting further comment from FSC and Talent Testing, but in the meantime, we are encouraging performers who work with us to only test at Cutting Edge Testing in the meantime.

TEA Safety Policy

It’s always been our main concern that attendees to the TEAs should be in a safe environment to enjoy the party and the show with their friends, peers, and colleagues and, for the most part, over our 11 years of growth we’ve been able to provide that.  We welcome over 400 people to our main show from all over the world to help celebrate transgender erotica and we’ve accomplished that each year, with people leaving with good memories, new friendships and looking forward to the following year’s festivities.  No event of this size is without issues, and it’s unfortunate that a small element has caused us to look at ways of making the show safer and having to inform attendees what to look out for.   While we’ve always had security and staff floating in the crowds, this year we’re bringing in a number of changes to help us, and we’d like to take this opportunity to share them with you.

The last thing we want is to take an authoritarian approach – the TEA weekend is meant to be fun, and a time to celebrate.   The main thing is that you are all adults, and as adults, you should be responsible primarily for yourself, and then for the friends you are with.  We’ve removed some problematic individuals from this year’s show and this year we’re going to an over 21 policy (with a few exceptions for nominees who should contact kristel@grooby.com).


We’d like all attendees to be aware of the following;

  • We have a zero tolerance policy for any form of harassment, unwanted touching or abusive behavior.  You will be removed from the show or party if you exhibit this sort of behavior.
  • Drink testing kits will be available at the show to anyone who wants them.  You are recommended to get your own drinks and ensure nobody else has access to them.  If in doubt, please use the kit and if a positive result is shown contact a TEA staff member.
  • There will be floating ‘TEA Staff’ at the show wearing visible logo’d shirts – as well as lit-up wrist bands.   There will also be a TEA staff permanently at the right hand door (next to the bar) who will be clearly seen.  If you have any issues please see them immediately.
  • We will be posting a “secret word” prior to the show.  If you feel in danger, ill, harassed or have any issues, then using that word to a TEA staff member will have you escorted to a safe space, where we can assess the problem and inform security – or take necessary actions.  
  • There will be non-uniformed ‘floater’ staff at the show, looking for potential problems and ensuring everyone is having a good time.
  • Look for staff – some will have a logo’d shirt, all will have a lit wrist band.  If you have any issues please get yourself to them.

We hope these measures will enable everyone to enjoy a fun, memorable, and safe evening.   Please be aware of how much alcohol you consume – those of you don’t eat before the show, and drink on an empty stomach please be careful.  Please be responsible for friends or those you see who may be in distress,  drunk or under an undue amount of unwarranted attention.  Please ensure if you go anywhere after the parties or show, you stay with friends and know where you are going.


All of us at The TEA Show are looking forward to celebrating the weekend with you.

Trans Star MichaAngela Sponsors 2019 TEAs

LOS ANGELES, CA – Adult star MichaAngela announced her returning sponsorship of the 2019 TEAs.

“I am unbelievably honored…I am so honored to again be a part of this ever-growing event and everything that it means to my sisters and brothers in the trans adult industry,” said MichaAngela. “When I look back on all the things – all the things that I did and the things that were done for me, its YOU, the fans, the supporters and the friends – who have made, and will continue to make, all the difference. I love you all.”

“We’re very grateful for MichaAngela’s sponsorship,” said TEA Executive Producer, Kristel Penn. “As a longtime attendee and supporter of the show, her fun personality always adds a bit of color to our event.”

MichaAngela recently relocated from South Lake Tahoe and calls Las Vegas, NV, her new home. MichaAngela is proud to announce the launch of her new project, The All-New MichaAngela Productions (MAP), which is inclusive to all kink and fetish models, both cis and trans.

She explained, “A tantalizing component of MAP will host the ‘MichaAngela Experience’ where you and a consenting partner can experience firsthand the thrill of a live set while creating one of a kind adult content and if you choose, have it promoted on the MAP website and social media links.”
