Chatsworth, Calif. — AVN Media Network is offering Barack Obama and Mitt Romney a chance to bounce back after the grueling presidential campaign: Whoever loses the election will be invited to co-host the 2013 AVN Awards with adult superstars Asa Akira and Jesse Jane.

“We’ve all been following the campaign since Iowa and New Hampshire, and I can imagine how hard it’s been for the people who’ve been living it every day,” Asa Akira said. “This will give our host the chance to kick back as an honored VIP guest and get some serious national television exposure as co-host of the Awards. It could be a kickoff for 2013!”
