Only a handful of the categories in the annual AVN Awards specifically reward the efforts of performers in the so-called girl/girl realm. Given the continuing growth of popularity in all-female erotica, we’ve decided it’s time to redress this imbalance with the addition of a new category. The basic criterion of eligibility for nomination in the All-Girl Performer of the Year category is to have released only girl/girl scenes during the awards eligibility period. That requirement barred a couple of strong contenders who happened to have done the odd boy/girl scene during 2012-2013, but there remained more than enough candidates to make up a full slate of talented, energetic and sensuous woman-loving women.
