Former SKID ROW and SAIGON KICK drummer Phil Varone has been nominated for two AVN Awards in the categories of “Best Celebrity Sex Tape” and “Best Overall Marketing Campaign” for his Vivid Entertainment movie, “Phil Varone’s Secret Sex Stash”.
The 29th annual AVN Awards, hosted by Bree Olsen and Sunny Leone, will be held January 21, 2012 inside The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Phil Varone, the rock ‘n’ roll drummer who claims he’s had sex with over 3,000 women, shows us his XXX style in “Phil Varone’s Secret Sex Stash”.
The two-disc CD set of the Vivid-Celeb imprint is available in stores nationwide.
“Phil Varone’s Secret Sex Stash” takes the viewer inside the raucous sex life of the drummer for SAIGON KICK, SKID ROW and PRUNELLA SCALES. “Granted, it’s been pretty easy for me to meet many groupies along the way,” says Varone, “but I still feel a charge each time with each new girl. It’s a very personal, very explicit experience and never gets old,” he added. “This was the first time for me with the incredible five girls in the movie and I loved every minute I had with each of them.”
“Sex has been the defining element in my life and both the movie and my website document my continuing extraordinary adventures,” says Varone, who notes that viewers of the movie online will see bonus footage and the site will be updated monthly with more scenes.
The movie also reflects Varone‘s all-encompassing attitude toward sex. “I believe everyone should have sex with as many partners as possible, in as many ways as possible,” he says, noting that he and his fiancé have an open relationship and enjoy sexual encounters with multiple lovers.
Over the years Varone has been branded as a sex addict and has appeared on VH1’s “Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew” show. “They’ve got an addiction claim for everything you can do, but I never considered myself a sex addict because sex never screwed up the rest of my life or my ability to function at a high level,” Varone says.
Varone has appeared on many TV shows, including “Miami Ink”, “Californication”, “NUMB3RS”, “Oprah”, “The Tyra Banks Show”, “The Today Show” and many others.
Phil last fall responded to ex-SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach‘s claim that Varone‘s decision to pose nude for the cover of the December 2010 issue of Playgirl magazine is “further proof that the name ‘SKID ROW‘ has completely lost all credibility, cool, accuracy and is now devoid of all meaning in every way.” Varone told the New York Post, “I’m grateful and proud of my time in SKID ROW and sorry [Sebastian] feels that way.” Playgirl representative Daniel Nardicio defended Varone: “This coming from a man [Bach] who preceded David Hasselhoff in ‘Jekyll Hyde’ on Broadway? Now that’s the epitome of uncool.”
Varone joined SKID ROW in 2000 — about four years after Bach parted ways with the group.
