Our Clients & Owner Scored Tons with Inked Awards Noms

The Inked Awards nominations were announced last Friday during the live Demon Seed Radio show on Planet Platypus. The Rub PR clients really mopped up. Here are their nominations.

Karmen Karma received a total of seven award nominations for Female Performer of the Year, Best Ass, Best Oral, Best Anal, Scene of the Year for ArchAngel’s Karma’s a Bitch, Girl/Girl Scene of the Year for Burning Angel’s Dude I’m a Slut, and Best Group Scene for ArchAngel’s Karma’s a Bitch. Two of movies she starred in, Airerose Entertainment’s Sex Symbols and Wicked Pictures’ Axel Braun’s Inked got nods for DVD of the Year. Karmen will also be one of the hosts of the show.

Queen of Lesbian Foot Fetish, ALT model and director Kayla-Jane Danger has received a nomination for the 2nd year in a row from the Inked Awards. Last year, she was up for Best Ass, and this year, she can now be considered social media royalty for her Social Media Queen nomination.

Curvaceous, girl next-door adult starlet Brooklyn Chase has scored an Inked Awards nomination for the second year in a row. Last year, she was nominated for Feature of the Year. But this year, she was recognized for her stellar on screen oral skills with a nomination for Best Oral.



ArchAngel scored a pair of nominations both for Karmen Karma’s showcase film Karma’s a Bitch. The first nod is for Scene of the Year for Karmen Karma and Prince Yahshua’s scene and the second nom is for Best Group Scene for Karmen’s scene with Ramon Nomar and Toni Ribas. The breakout showcase has received much critical and fan acclaim, and now Karma’s a Bitch has received its first nominations.

There are two types of categories—fan voting and panel voting. Kayla’s category of Social Media Queen is a fan-voting category. Rock the vote and vote for her once a day by going to http://inkedawards.net/categories/.

And last, but not least…our owner, Erika Icon, received Bill Synder Inked Achievement Award. To quote Inked Angels, “You do an amazing job promoting and supporting inked ladies in the industry so the nomination panel thought it’d be fitting to nominate you in this category.”

The Inked Awards take place on Saturday, November 14th at the Hilton Inn Edison during Exxxotica New Jersey. For more information, go to http://inkedawards.net/info/.

Congrats to everyone!

Ryan Driller & Nina Elle Join Our Roster

Awards season is almost here and smart performers who are serious about their careers get PR and keep it year round. All of our clients fall under this category. We’re excited to welcome two new clients to our roster who you will be hearing a lot about (like you do all of our clients) and stand to be huge contenders this awards season.

2015 has been another stellar year of plum roles for Ryan Driller. He appeared in Adam & Eve’s crossover hit Marriage 2.0 about open relationships and played a muscle-bound dancing well-hung hunk in Wicked Pictures’ Magic Mike XXXL: A Hardcore Parody. Look for him in a slew of upcoming nomination worthy titles including the latest installation of Submission of Emma Marx from New Sensations and Digital Playground’s True Detective XXX. He also recently received a NightMoves Awards nomination for Best Male Performer for the second year in a row.



2015 has been a banner year for Nina Elle. She has started feature dancing and has headlined at top tier gentlemen’s clubs around the country, in addition to having over 50 scenes released this year already. You can currently see her in Digital Playground’s feature film Teachers 2, Evil Angel’s POV Jugg Fuckers 6, and starring in and on the cover of ArchAngel’s True MILF 2.

Cosmo Interviews Owner/Publicist Erika Icon

Finally, the interview with our owner and publicist, Erika Icon, has posted to Cosmo’s website:


Icon commented about the interview:

“I rarely do interviews, because it’s all about the clients, and this is the type of mainstream coverage we’re consistently getting for our clients. But, of course, I couldn’t say no to Cosmo. I’m really happy with how the piece turned out. People get to know the real me, but moreover, I hope that this article will earn women who work in this industry more respect in the real world.”

What Else Makes Us Different…Press Releases

The last blog post got us thinking about how else we’re different. One HUGE thing is our press releases, which are top-notch, and here’s why:

Erika Icon has a degree from UCLA in Fine Arts with a minor in English/writing. Unlike most publicists, she can actually write. Her grammar, vocabulary and spelling are incomparable.

You won’t see sites having to rewrite our PR or rejecting it. Yes, that does happen with other agencies.

Our press releases are creative and we spend a lot of time coming up with catchy titles that make people want to read what we write and keep their attention with great copy. We also don’t put the same press release out over and over–each one is an original.

We always quote someone else in press releases. We rarely quote ourselves or some “unnamed rep”.

Our press releases are about our clients 99 percent of the time, because it’s always about them. We rarely send out press about ourselves.

Press releases are important because they represent the clients, and they have to be great!
