“It’s been a struggle this year to keep up with all of the studios returning to pre-pandemic “normals” and releasing a ton of content. However, our trusty XCritic Team Members have managed to duke it out once again and champion the people and companies that they think deserve our annual recognition.” states XCritic “We watch a lot of porn over the course of a year and we like to honor those that we think stood out in their respective categories”
