Porn stars share their favorite emoji with us

Early humans had cave paintings, 1960s homes had rotary phones, cool ’90s kids had pagers, and now millennials have emoji. The smartphone set have turned the adorable ideograms into everything from complex collages into masterful wood carvings and so much more. But what really matters is how porn stars at the AVNs use them.

Sure, you might know what Taylor Swift’s most-used characters are and what emoji Drake has tatted on his right forearm, but what about James Deen and Bonnie Rotten? We hit the floor of Las Vegas’s Adult Entertainment Expo to ask the hard-hitting questions and discern exactly what those prayer hands mean.

Given that it’s an industry built on sex and romance, flirty emoji were at the top of the list. 

Farrah Abraham: 

Jennifer White:

Nikki Delano:

Venus Lux:

Some favored the more goofy characters.

Little Red Bunny:

Jesse Jane:

Alexis Texas: 

Romi Rain:

Jillian Janson: 

Lucy Tyler:

Staci Carr:

Peyton West:

Some favored the cute and cuddly.

Annika Albrite and Mia Isabella: 

Others enjoyed more suggestive fare. 

Mai Marie, Eva Sinn, and Abby Cross:

While some performers enjoyed the downright bizarre.

Ariana Marie, Nikki Phoenix, and Dakota James:

But of course, nothing will suffice quite like a good pair of praise hands. 

Chanel Preston and Bonnie Rotten:

But others in the industry are still a bit behind on the latest means of communication. 

James Deen:

For the love of God, someone please help James Deen download the emoji keyboard onto his iPhone so he can take part in the great tradition of #EggplantFriday
