Will Pounder Nabs Two XBIZ Noms, Including Male Performer of the Year

Will Pounder is pleased to announce that he has been honored with two nominations in the 2023 XBIZ Awards, including the coveted Male Performer of the Year trophy.

The handsome leading man, an experienced mainstream actor who appeared on the TV series “A Grunt’s Life,” before joining the adult industry, chalked up a string of powerhouse sexual performances and compelling, well-reviewed characterizations this past year.  As the 2022 awards season approached, it was clear that the award-winning adult star had established himself as a solid contender for nominations in the year’s top categories, and the editors of XBIZ agreed.

In recognition of his onscreen accomplishments, the versatile Pounder scored two key nominations, including a nod for Male Performer of the Year, in the 2023 XBIZ Awards.

“An acknowledgement as great as a Male Performer of the Year nomination is truly an honor, and I am incredibly grateful to the editors of XBIZ, as well as to my wonderful fans and everyone I worked with this past year,” Pounder said.

Pounder’s other XBIZ nomination, Best Sex Scene — Featurette, isfor one of career-best pieces of work, as the lead in “An Honest Man” (MissaX). Written by Missa X, and helmed by veteran director Craven Moorehead, “An Honest Man” cast Pounder as a loyal married man who receives a visit from his wife’s friend (rising superstar Blake Blossom). 

“I’m really happy with how it turned out,” Pounder recalled of the production. “Blake is always dedicated and wonderful to work with, but what we accomplished there was transcendent for both of us in some way. I’ve been very fortunate in terms of the roles I have been given. but it was a privilege to be chosen for this project.”

The outstanding “An Honest Man” is available for streaming and download here.
