leave a comment »

BeeoxrJCYAAfoDrJanuary 28, 2014 — VALENCIA, Calif. — Shyla Jennings was honored at the 2014 AVN Awards with the show’s first ever trophy for All-Girl Performer of the Year. Shyla is the star of over one hundred Sapphic scenes for the most popular lesbian studios in the adult entertainment industry.

“To even be considered for an AVN award is a great honor and privilege,” states Shyla Jennings. “Thank you AVN!”

Throughout her career, Shyla has remained steadfast about only shooting girl/girl scenes. “I could never really pinpoint the exact reason I love being with women… I just do,” explains Shyla. “Let’s be honest… What’s not to love about their soft skin and luscious lips caressing yours? There is something inherently sexy about two women being together, and I want to be a part of it.”

The past year was a landmark one for Shyla’s career, as the young starlet shot for a plethora of well-known studios. “I fell in love with so many different scenes I shot this year,” says Shyla. “Honestly, way too many to list, but here are where to find them all – Girlfriends Films, Penthouse,,, and Reality Kings! And I have to say, I did film some pretty sensuous videos for my site,, as well!”

“Congratulations to Shyla on being named All-Girl Performer of the Year,” says Dan O’Connell with Girlfriends Films, the studio responsible for nearly half of Shyla’s scenes. “I have had the pleasure of working with Shyla throughout her career and was able to see her growth as an adult performer, actress, and woman. She is a truly remarkable talent and extremely deserving of all the praise and accolades that come her way.”

Shyla credits her scene partners and the chemistry they share as a reason for her AVN award. “My idea of a great scenes partner is a girl who comes to work with an engaging personality, loves being with women, and loves herself, meaning she takes care of herself,” says Shyla. “I’m secretly in love with Bree Daniels and Elle Alexandra, but I gotta say, I have my eye on a few newbies as well. Eeek, I just can’t help myself.”

“I am so excited for Shyla to win this award,” says Sandra McCarthy, the executive senior partner and operations manager of Shyla’s agency, OC Modeling. “She has worked very hard and deserves it. When I think of a girl/girl model, it is her… She loves what she does, and it shows on and off camera. I’m so proud of her.”

When discussing her future plans, Shyla admits, “I’m not sure what my career has in store for me next – life seems to keep on surprising me. Wherever 2014 leads, as long as I’m happy is all that matters in my book.”
