January 29 , 2017 – Fort Russ News –
It is kind of shocking this ceremony exists in the first place – but it does.
28-year-old Aleksey Maetny, better known in the porn industry as Markus Dupree, received four AVN Awards in one evening. This award is often called “the porn Oscar”.
The native of St. Petersburg was in Las Vegas to be awarded for “Best Performer”, “Best anal sex scene,” “Best group sex scene,” and “Best double penetration scene.” In total, he was nominated for as many as 22 categories.
From the stage, the porn actor thanked his wife (what!?), who was in the audience. “She does so much for me every day,” he said. He also publicly thanked the Italian actor Rocco Siffredi, whom the Russian called his mentor, who brought him to the United States.
You wouldn’t be able to tell but Maetny graduated from the St Petersburg Institute of Economics and Law. However, he began to appear in porn movies in 2011, when he moved to Los Angeles. In 2017, he became the first Russian to win an AVN Award. In 2018, he surpassed last year’s success, when he received only three “porn Oscars”.
