(Los Angeles, CA) The 2022 ASN Lifestyle Magazine Awards presented their awards show virtually honoring all sectors of the lifestyle and adult industry, from businesses to entertainers. Over 20 awards were given out, including Best Public Relations Firm, which The Rub PR won.

The ASN Lifestyle Magazine Awards were presented with a festive online ceremony for the second year in a row. The Rub PR was one of the top adult public relations firms that made it to the industry finalist Top 5 list for 2022. Casey Carter presented the award, and The Rub PR team was elated to hear its name announced as the winner.

“I know many people say they’re honored to be nominated and make it to the Top 5 Finalists in an awards show, but we really are. I was blown away when the name of our agency was announced as the winner. We want to thank all our current and past clients and everyone who voted for us—we really appreciate it.
