XRCO was founded in 1984 to give writers and editors from the adult entertainment industry a voice in the selection of the years' best productions. The purpose was to award works of excellence, recognizing specifically the unique qualities of sexually explicit films. The 23rd annual XRCO Awards Show is the result of nominations and votes from accredited adult release critics, all members of the X-rated Critics Organization based in the United States and overseas.
Members of XRCO consider approximately 13,000 new releases for inclusion in 24 categories. The results of the XRCO are derived strictly from nominations and unique votes. There are no outside forces or factors involved in the selections, and the process is pure and pristine in intent and only reflects the true votes by the critics.
Dirty Bob, co-director of XRCO, remarks, "Due to the big budget of some notable releases of 2005, we added a new category Best Epic and "Pirates" was a strong factor in this decision. We are also pleased to include Joone as a choice in the Best Director category." Since its September release, "Pirates," has received 11 AVN trophies, more than any other title in the history of their award show. The awards included Best DVD, Best Video Feature, Best High Definition Production, Best Music, Best Special Effects, Best Online Marketing Campaign, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Girl / Girl Sex Scene.
