Experienced sales professional sought for expanding lines and distribution

Mile High Media Seeks to Expand Sales Force

Posted Sep 22nd, 2014 12:56 PM

MONTREAL, Quebec—Leading adult producer and distributor Mile High Media is expanding its sales force, seeking an experienced adult entertainment sales professional immediately. With new lines soon to launch and Mile High Media’s increased distribution from awarded studios Reality Junkies, Sweet Sinner, Sweetheart Video, Doghouse Digital, Icon Male, Male Reality, Hard X and Erotica X, the addition of a seasoned sale representative is required, to join their premier sales team.

Interested and qualified sales professionals may email here to begin the application process.

Mile High Media Vice President Jon Blitt stated, “Our company is expanding and adding new lines and distribution channels. It’s important that we add a new sale professional to our team that understands the adult landscape today, and can continue to foster relationships and grow our brands as we launch new products. The right person will be joining our stellar sales department, so it is also vital that the person is a reliable team player.”

Mile High Media has been a pillar of the adult industry for over 20 years. The Canadian-managed company began as a Canadian licensee for American adult movies, ensuring it distributed only the highest quality content. Understanding the diverse and ever-changing needs of its consumer base, Mile High determined the best way to provide a wide array of superior entertainment was to produce its own.

In 2003, Mile High launched Doghouse Digital, the first of its lines catering to specific niches.  Growing market trends and demand led Mile High to create Sweetheart Video (lesbian line), Sweet Sinner (couples line), Reality Junkies (reality gonzo line), Male Reality (gay reality gonzo line) and recently launched Icon Male (gay romance line). With over 2,000 titles, Mile High’s studios yield some of the most viewed adult movies in the world, available on all platforms, including broadcast, IPTV, VOD and mobile applications.  Mile High is committed to evolve alongside consumers tastes, reflecting new developments in technology and entertainment.  This philosophy led AEBN.net to name Mile High the 2012 Studio of the Year.

In 2013, Mile High Media and Gamma Entertainment launched new company O.L. Entertainment, and with it two new Mason-directed studios Hard X and Erotica X. The award-winning content is released through an array of platforms, including DVD, Internet, VOD, mobile, and broadcast.

New Article in Las Vegas Sun Catches Up With Porn’s Reality

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

New Article in Las Vegas Sun Catches Up With Porn's Reality

LAS VEGAS—Yesterday's edition of the Las Vegas Sun featured an extensive article on the adult industry's possible relocation from L.A. to L.V. While that may seem like old news to those who've followed AVN's plethora of news stories about Measure B and AB 1576, Sun reporter Andrea Domanick still manages to make a few good points—and snags some quotes from Kink.com CEO Peter Acworth, who announced several weeks ago that he was shopping for office/production space in Sin City.

ADVERTISEMENT


“Vegas is looking more and more attractive as time goes by,” the article quotes Acworth as saying. “I think that a lot of companies are doing what we’re doing. They’re setting up satellite offices and getting their feet wet with Vegas as a potential place to shoot.”

But, Acworth cautioned, “The move is happening, but quietly. They don’t want a target on their back.”

And while it's true that several companies have set up at least partial shop in the city, which Domanick notes "requires permits only for specific locations and conditions. Shooting on private property, frequently the choice of porn producers, requires no permit or notification, and the state has no explicit regulations about condom use," though she does mention the AIDS Healthcare Foundation's complaint against a Kink.com oral-only shoot.

But though salivating a bit over "California’s $6 billion porn juggernaut" coming to town, and while Jim Reid of JR Lighting, Nevada's largest production rental company, noted that, “A lot of people I know in the mainstream industry started out in the adult industry in California. It’s a very good training ground," Robert Lang of Brookings Mountain West, a subset of the famous Brookings Institution that's partnered with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was less than sure.

“Some big part of it will stay [in L.A.] and production companies will continue to be based there, so it’s not accurate to say that all of that $6 billion translates to Southern Nevada,” Lang said. “But what it also gives to Las Vegas is that it’s building technical capacity that undergirds non-pornographic production and media. It adds some competitive advantage in scale to Los Angeles.”

Among those "competitive advantages" are the fact that filming permits cost only $45 per day in Clark County with no "location fee" at all, and "Our growing tech sector offers resources for production and web operations, and it’s cheaper to hire talented workers here than in California."

The article gets a few things wrong, like the location of the first Adult Video News Awards (it wasn't at the Sands Convention Center, which hadn't even been built then); that there's some question whether the HIV infection of an "unidentified female performer in LA" in 2009 was "contracted off set" (there's no question that it was); and it accepts as fact AIDS Healthcare's false claim that there have been 21 other performers found to be HIV-positive since 2004.

Domanick also seems to have missed the reports that Measure B is likely to lose its sole supporter in Vivid Entertainment's lawsuit to overturn the law, thanks to the impending decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, though she does note that the attempt to "expand the law statewide" died with the defeat last month of AB 1576. (Interestingly, although AHF has posted two press releases over the past few weeks essentially admitting that AB 1576 and similar measures are useless, Domanick nonetheless reports that AHF "vows to reintroduce the bill next year.")

Indeed, there's a fair bit of discussion in the article about whether Nevada (or Las Vegas proper, or Clark County) will enact some sort of Measure B-like law, but Clark County Commission spokeswoman Jennifer Lopez told Domanick, “Regulation of the adult film industry is not a topic on our legislative agenda at this time. Our efforts to ban revenge porn are on the agenda as it pertains to consumer protection issues, especially for minors.” And there's the usual bluster from AHF that "Nevada regulates things, especially when dealing with vice. ... We would hope it doesn’t want to walk away from regulation.”

Adult industry attorney Marc Randazza was more optimistic, however.

“What happens this legislative session is going to say a lot,” Randazza said. “If a bill gets put forward [to require condoms or similar regulations], and it gets shut down, I think that will scream to the industry that it’s welcome here. If nothing gets introduced, that would be even better.”

The article also contains a couple of sidebars, such as local artist/writer Sarah Jane Woodall's story of being an extra on a porn set; a summary of the existing laws and regulations governing adult shoots in the county, as well as locations where it's okay to shoot it—and a description of Lee Roy Myers' Mission Control Studio, in "an industrial parkway long marred by 'For Lease' signs and defunct adult novelty stores."

All in all, Domanick's article is a good read—and excellent food for thought for those thinking about relocating to that portion of the desert.

Larry Flynt: Hustler Could Go Public Within 18 Months

Hustler Could Go Public Within 18 Months

LOS ANGELES—Forget about Alibaba. Hustler founder and publisher Larry Flynt told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Friday that he may take his iconic and privately owned company public within the next 12 to 18 months.

"He said the company is already working with 'high powered' firms to study the possibility of an initial public offering," reported Bowdeya Tweh for the paper.

ADVERTISEMENT


"That's no small feat," Flynt told Tweh. "We'd just be able to raise a lot more money. We're trying to decide whether to take the whole company public or just a portion of it. The decision hasn't been made yet."

Tweh also noted, "A few adult entertainment companies are publicly traded but many have returned to being privately held. Playboy Enterprises was a publicly traded company before founder Hugh Hefner took the company private in 2011. Boulder, Colorado-based New Frontier Media was publicly traded before a Hustler company bought it in 2012.

"Houston-based strip club and restaurant operator RCI Hospitality Holdings, formerly Rick's Cabaret International, has been publicly traded company since 1995 and has a market capitalization of $117.2 million," the reporter added.

Page 6 Pictorial: ‘From XXX to A-list: Stars with Porn Pasts’

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Stars with Porn Pasts'

NEW YORK—The NY Post's Page Six today published a pictorial gallery featuring some of your favorite stars, all of whom share "porn pasts" that have since come to light, sometimes scandalously, sometimes not. Some of the names include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jon Hamm, Cameron Diaz, Stormy Daniels, Helen Mirren... wait a second.

Stormy Daniels? What the heck is she...

ADVERTISEMENT


Hold on, now that we notice, they also included in the pictorial Sasha Grey, Veronica Hart, Ginger Lynn, Gina Lynn and ... of course, Ron Jeremy. Right there alongside the others, as if they all shared a similar career trajectory, winding up as bona fide celebrities while sharing varying degrees of a "porn past," even if they have a "porn present."

It just proves the obvious; that as far as being a legitimate celebrity goes, the porn route truly is just as viable as any other, and even the New York tabloids are confused about what actually constitutes a "porn past" or even an A-lister, for that matter. Porn and mainstream have actually become synonymous. They mean the same damn thing, making the media's sensationalism over the Belle Knox Story kind of moot, and kind of disingenuous, because that particularly hoary narrative—that the wall between adult and mainstreaming is slowly disappearing—has long since evolved.

The wall no longer divides. Porn stars, musicians, movie and television actors sit atop it and get along fine. No one looking up can tell the difference. Just ask Page Six.

On the Set: A Visit to ‘BonnieLand’

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Itâ??s Bonnie Rottenâ??s world â?¦. the rest of us just live here

A Visit to 'BonnieLand'

This on-the-set report originally ran in the September 2014 issue of AVN magazine. To see a trailer of BonnieLand: A Gangbang Fantasy, click here.

Bonnie Rotten is pissed.

Her usually smiling and happy demeanor was intact through the morning's shooting, in this hillside house with its vertical backyard. The paved path leading up to the pavilion with the hot tub, gas barbecue and mini-fridge was the setting for the preamble to her sex scene with Remy LaCroix, with both of them in Halloween-costume Native American dresses and Bonnie pulling a rubber prop knife on Remy, binding her wrists together and leading her away.

ADVERTISEMENT


The pre-sex-scene prep finished, the company re-assembled around a landing on the same path, a smallish wooden platform just large enough for a bench and a small throw rug, with a showerhead in one corner. One camera is at ground level, pointing up, and a second camera is in the hot tub pavilion, pointing down. Rotten, who is also directing, spent some time conferring with the cameraman shooting down: When the shower comes on, she wants the camera to go to slow motion, and they discuss how many frames per second is best to capture detail. A collection of sex toys has been laid out on an out-of-camera-range table, and the scene begins.

Bonnie brandishes the knife at Remy and unties her wrists, then pulls her forward and kisses her. Remy's dress comes off and Bonnie is on her knees, reaching up with her mouth to Remy's breast.

"Break!" Bonnie suddenly says, and points at one cameraman. "You're doing soft, right?" She looks at the other cameraman. "And you're doing hard? Got it. Action!"

Bonnie pulls her own dress off, sitting Remy on the bench and starting to finger-fuck her. "Oh fuck!" Remy squeals as Bonnie's hands thrust into her. Bonnie reaches up to kiss her and BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP The air is shattered by the sound of leaf blowers in the yard next door, right behind the bench. Bonnie and Remy take cover behind the bench, cowering from the noise coming from behind the leafy wall. After a momentary conference, a PA is dispatched to ask the gardeners to take a break. No dice. Another quick discussion. The PA is sent back with cash to bribe them. They refuse. Now, Bonnie Rotten is mad. She stomps in a circle, barefoot, naked, fuming. "I will GO OVER THERE! RIGHT NOW! And ASK THEM to STOP!"

It is called to her attention that leaving the backyard while still naked may not be a good idea.

This is Rotten's fourth directorial effort, and it still has no title. "Actually, we don't have a name for it yet," Rotten told AVN, earlier, during a break. "I figure it'll come to me when I see the footage." It does: Titled BonnieLand, it will be Rotten’s third release from her Mental Beauty studio, to be distributed this month by Girlfriends Films.

As a director, Rotten says, "You have a lot more to think about. It's really challenging, directing and performing. Yesterday, I had to be completely focused to do my gangbang, because I wanted it to be awesome, performance-wise, and I wanted the product to be awesome. And I'm paying for it, so it really needs to be fuckin' great. When you're doing a gangbang for somebody else, you get to focus on your gangbang. I'm focusing on the schedule hour-by-hour, because if I go over, I'm paying more money. And if I have an issue, I'm stopping the whole day.

"It's not easy to be a performer-director if you care about your product. I really care about it coming off as artistic. Not only hardcore sex, but I want it to be visually pretty too. I may not have the most intricate scripts, but I like my ideas. I enjoy what I'm doing and I want to make us all happy with it. There's a lot of pressure: You want to impress the fans, you want to impress the reviewers, you want to make it the best."

One of the ideas she recently shot involves food. "I had been in a couple of scenes where food was used for play, but I haven't ever seen a full release about food play. That's why I did the last one. It's fun and it's colorful—it's not gross, like shoving pizza in a girl's face or something. It's fun and it's different. Adds a fetish element to the film. There's something dirty about eating something out of someone's butt," she adds with a laugh. (This movie, titled Anal Candy Disco Sluts, is also a recent Mental Beauty/Girlfriends Films release.)

The sound of the leaf blowers is not abating, so after a minute of contemplation Rotten decides to start shooting the pretty-girl stills and silent-with-music tease sequence for the next scene, where she plays a mermaid, because the intrusive sound won't interfere. She tugs on hot-pink fishnet stockings, a shell bra, hot-pink net top, and iridescent blue-green hot pants, topping it off with a beaded headpiece with seashells. "I made it myself," she grins as she puts on pink child-size swim fins. "I got kid size so I could spread my legs," she explains as she sizes up her reflection in a glass patio door.

Rotten takes her position at the end of the swimming pool, between two pillars that erupt fire with an audible whoosh, emitting heat if not light into the sunny afternoon. She tells one video camera op to set up in a poolside cabana, ready to shoot through a waterfall, as the stills photographer snaps away, and as soon as the stills are finished she pulls her costume back on and calls "Action!" and starts the tease sequence with one camera close, one shooting through the waterfall.

There is a girl-girl scene to finish once the gardeners stop making noise and only two more hours of sunlight. There's no time to waste. 

BonnieLand is scheduled for release September 19 with distribution handled by Girlfriends Films. For more about the movie, click here.

Italian Court Auctioning ‘Vast’ Porn Trove to Repay Creditors

Italian Court Auctioning 'Vast' Porn Trove to Repay Creditors

TREVISO, Italy—In order to compensate victims of a large-scale fraud perpetrated by a Roman entrepreneur Luigi Compiano, who had pilfered $52 million from his company, armored transport firm North East Service, an Italian court is auctioning off Compiano's possessions, which, in addition to a fleet of cars and boats, includes a "vast" collection of porn DVDs and videos.

According to Channel 24, "The Court Auction House of Treviso, in north-east Italy, set a starting price of 720 Euros for a lot comprising 2,187 videos and DVDs, as well as erotic 'accessories', that is due to go on sale on 24 September." No indication of what sort of porn fare it is, or from what epoch.

ADVERTISEMENT


That translates into about $925, or a little over fifty cents a video. One local paper also calculated that it would take about six years to watch one movie from the collection every day. But the stat that probably interests creditors the most is the one indicating they're likely getting back pennies on the Euro.

Chinese Nab 62 for Social Media Immorality

Chinese Nab 62 for Social Media Immorality

CHINA—The financial markets may be agog today over the largest IPO in history by China-based Alibaba, but it's a good bet that the 62 people detained by Chinese authorities for "using social networks to organize prostitution or spread pornography" don't really give a crap.

According to Want China Times, "Beijing police have busted four operations and captured 25 suspects for organizing prostitution via microblogs and instant messaging services since a campaign against pornography began in August... The other 37 suspects were seized in south China's Guangdong province for similar offenses."

ADVERTISEMENT


The article also contains a few examples of the sort of behavior that can generate unwanted interest by the state. For instance, "In Foshan, a city in Guangdong, 17 suspects were detained on Aug. 25 for using WeChat, China's leading smartphone messaging platform, to disseminate obscene images, post adverts to recruit prostitutes and organize prostitution services. Among them, 11 were held for criminal investigation.

"In Dongguan, another Guangdong city," it continues, "a suspect surnamed Zheng reportedly uploaded 8,951 pornographic images via a Tencent microblog account in April and May and clocked more than one million visits."

As in the United States, though, large web firms are pushing back against government interference, but the government seems to be holding firm in its intent to control all aspects of the internet.

"Since August," reports Want China Times, "four Chinese internet giants, namely Sina, Sohu, Tencent and Xunlei, have been punished for failing to check questionable content disseminated via their products and services. More than 800 million people use instant messengers in China, sending more than 20 billion pieces of information every day."

Considering Alibaba's prominence as a b-to-b online web portal, and considering that, according to Wikipedia, it "accounts for roughly half of all online payment transactions within China," maybe these stories are connected.

Homegrown Video Releases 1st Title Via Girlfriends Films Distro

Posted Sep 19th, 2014 08:57 AM

LOS ANGELES—Homegrown Video’s first DVD released through Girlfriends Films Distribution is now available. Homegrown Video 851. It is the newest addition to Homegrown’s AVN Award-winning series featuring 100 percent amateur sex from real-life couples.

Homegrown Video 851 is available now in stores and online, as part of what Newsweek calls the “longest-running amateur video series in the history of porn.” To view the box art and other release information click here.

“There was never any doubt what series needed to be the first to release through our new distribution deal with Girlfriends Films,” said Homegrown Video owner Farrell Timlake. “It’s a new chapter in Homegrown Video’s quest to provide the highest quality collections of amateur sex to our fans, and our flagship series perfectly encapsulates this. Volume 851 has some pretty amazing couples inviting us into their bedrooms.”

Featuring actual homemade sex tapes, Homegrown Video 851 features hot blonde Samantha Sin taking liberties with her toys, then her boyfriend! She is followed by first-timers Katie and Drew, who end their hot afternoon of fun with a climactic finish. Meanwhile, amateur brunette first-timer Taylor. The film’s final scene features euro-couple Sophie and John who show how it’s done in Poland. The DVD also features a bonus amateur scene, starring the sexy Maia.

Adult and mainstream media outlets have praised Homegrown Video’s flagship series over the years. In addition to Newsweek’s endorsement, US News & World Report heralded it as “a clearinghouse for the democracy of porn, supplying hardcore videos by the people, for the people.” Hustler said, “Unique, innovative, hip and sexually powerful—that’s Homegrown Video!

“It’s four nights of tassels and tail feathers, glitter and glamour in Gotham,” said Jen Gapay of Thirsty Girl Productions, co-founder of the New York Burlesque Festival. ”The world’s best burlesque performers at four of New York City’s hottest nightclubs is the hottest ticket in town.”

The festival's other co-founder, Angie Pontani, will also be performing in Saturday's show. Pontani was once the World Queen of Burlesque, winning the Miss Exotic World 2008 competition, and she will be featured as part of a forthcoming PBS Great Performances series dancing live with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett at Lincoln Center.

Daniels, Lansky Discuss Going ‘Deeper’ With Blacked

Daniels, Lansky Discuss Going 'Deeper' With Blacked

LOS ANGELES—In and around a sprawling estate that resembles the sort of digs you might imagine Steve McQueen inhabited in the late '60s, full of new age furniture and ultra-haute appointments and offering a spectacular rear view looking out as far the eye can see across a suburban panorama, Dani Daniels and director Greg Lansky recently gathered the last remaining morsels of tease footage and pretty girl shots necessary to put the finishing touches on Dani Daniels Deeper, the star showcase for Lansky's new site Blacked.com that marks the interracial debut of its much acclaimed headliner.

ADVERTISEMENT


Both director and star chatted with AVN about the project, now available on DVD through Jules Jordan Video, as the crew packed up the assorted gear strewn about numerous areas of the posh manor.

"It happened very organically," Lansky said. "I launched the site a few months ago, completely unrelated to this movie, and Dani and I, we've been working together since the beginning of her career. I actually shot her first girl/girl." (Daniels, as many will recall, began her career as a girl/girl-only performer.)

"So I've seen her evolve as a human being and as a performer," Lansky continued. "And I think she really wanted to do something special for [her interracial debut], and I just happened to launch that website a few months before, and her and I, we've got extremely similar tastes when it comes to anything—production, wardrobe, we like fashion a lot—so we just had a really open conversation. She's like, 'Well there's a lot of guys I want to work with, I want to work with Flash [Brown], I want to work with Prince [Yahshua]," and after speaking for awhile, we came up with that it would be nice to just showcase it in one movie, and that's what we did."

Daniels echoed Lansky's account, saying, "Me and Greg are friends and we have very similar styles and very similar tastes. He was just a really good fit, and when he did his new company, Blacked, it was just really elegant, well put together, well shot, and I just liked it. So when he asked me if I wanted to do it, I was like, 'Uh, yeah.'"

Lansky explained that his vision in creating Blacked was to "focus on the aesthetic part of IR. I'm a photographer at heart. It really is what my first craft was, and it'll always be my first love. So I'm always thinking like a photographer, and when I did Blacked, I said, well, I always personally liked interracial for many reasons, and one of the main ones is I thought the contrast between two skins is really beautiful. I just love contrast in general—between two skins, in photography, in fashion—I love all kinds of contrast. I think your art reflects how you mature and evolve as a person. So I think when I started [Blacked], all those tastes and maturity that I've accumulated over the years just kind of translated into one project."

From her point of view, Daniels opined that Blacked is setting a bar for the quality of its content that few others can match these days. "In the last few years, I feel like a lot of companies have been cutting corners and trying to save money, and the quality of work has gone down dramatically," she said. "I feel like Greg's stuff is so elegantly shot and so cinematic, and I feel beautiful all day, and he actually cares about the pairings and wants me to work with people that I have chemistry with, and the product is just so amazing."

In addition to the above mentioned pairings with Brown and Yahshua, Deeper's other two scenes respectively place Daniels in the center of a girl/girl/boy with Anikka Albrite and Rob Piper, and a boy/boy/girl with Yahshua and Jason Brown. Which one is Daniels' favorite? "They're all so good," she gushed. "I'm not just saying that to be like the Miss America approach. Like, every day I couldn't wipe the smile off my face because every scene partner I had, I was so excited to work with. Can I say all of them?"

"I'm very proud of it," Lansky said of Deeper as a whole. "I want to give a lot of due credit to Dani for being an amazing performer, and for collaborating on the movie with me. I think that it's going to show people a different outlook on Dani and on her performance. I've been pretty happy with the response that people have been giving so far." 

Daniels' take was a little more straightforward: "This movie is a new door I decided to take, and just to be blunt and honest, it was freakin' awesome sex, and you should watch it for the bomb sex!"

See the trailer for Dani Daniels Deeper at Blacked.com.

Study Finds SE Results Sway Consumer Behavior Re: Piracy

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Piracy

LOS ANGELES—A new study out of Carnegie Mellon University published this month attempted to develop empirical evidence on the extent to which search engine results influence "consumer piracy choices." The study was conducted, according to its abstract, as part of an "ongoing public policy debate regarding the role search engines can play in the fight against intellectual property theft." The first order of business, it was determined, was to find out if search engines do in fact have a significant level of influence on consumer behavior regarding piracy.

ADVERTISEMENT


"To do this," continued the abstract, "we [designed] a customized search engine that allows us to experimentally manipulate pirated and legal links in users’ search results. We then [conducted] separate experiments on a general population of users and on college-aged users where we randomly assign users to a control condition or to separate treatment conditions where infringing sites or legal sites are artificially promoted in the search results."

The results, as acknowledged by TorrentFreak, were "very strong," and indicated that search engines do indeed exert significant influence on consumer behavior.

"Of all participants who saw the standard results," reported Ernesto for TorrentFreak, "80% chose to buy the movie via a legal option. This went up to 94% if the results were mostly legal, and dropped to 57% for the group who saw mostly infringing results on the first page."

The site also contacted Professor Rahul Telang, one of the authors of the study, who reiterated that the study findings indicate that the influence of search engines like Google and others is direct in nature, and can actually lead consumers to either pirate a movie or not.

“Prominence of legal versus infringing links in the search results seem to play a vital role in users decision to consume legal versus pirated content," he told the site. "In particular, demoting infringing links leads to lower rate of consumption of pirated movie content in our sample."

He added, with obvious emphasis, “The results suggest that the search engines may play an important role in fight against intellectual property theft."

The abstract itself describes the study's findings thusly: "Our data show that relative to the non-manipulated (control) condition, the presence of pirate or legal links in search results strongly influences the behavior of both the general and college-aged populations: users are more likely to choose a legal option to acquire the movie when legal sites are promoted, and users are more likely to choose a pirate option when piracy links are promoted. By analyzing users’ initial search terms, we also find evidence that users who initially intend to pirate are more likely to purchase legally when legal links are promoted and that users who initially intend to consume legally are more likely to pirate when pirate links are promoted. Together our results suggest that reducing the prominence of pirated links can be a viable policy option in the fight against intellectual property theft."

TorrentFreak adds as caveats that the researchers received a "generous donation" from the RIAA, and also notes, "As a word of caution the researchers point out that meddling with search results in the real world may be much more challenging. False positives could lead to significant social costs and should be avoided, for example."

But it also concedes, "The MPAA and RIAA will welcome the study as a new piece of research they can wave at Google and lawmakers. Whether that will help them to get what they want has yet to be seen though."

Day 2 at ILS: It’Â?Â?s All About Being Unique

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

It'Â?Â?s All About Being Unique

LAS VEGAS—Attendees of the latest fall edition of the International Lingerie Show at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas couldn’t escape the fact that there was something unique at almost every turn.

While it’s not unusual for exhibitors to showcase new lines or collections or products—both in the apparel and pleasure product realms—it seemed this time around there were many items that have never been seen before and they were resonating with buyers.

ADVERTISEMENT


“The Svakom Gaga is really doing well for us these days,” said Jeff, a rep from adult distributor Eldorado Trading Co. “Many people initially show interest because it’s so different from anything they have seen, but then it really does seem to be selling well, maybe because of that uniqueness.”

The Gaga is one of the first vibrators of its kind: It has a camera built in at the tip so it can help women keep an eye on their physical health while also providing sexual pleasure. The new technology aims to help women learn what is normal for them, and look out for any abnormal changes, which could imply a health problem or STI. The Gaga can also be controlled by another person using its wireless app.

Another best-selling item for Eldorado is the We-Vibe 4 Plus, which has made headlines for its increased power over previous versions, as well as an app that can control the couples’ toy from any sort of distance.

“The We-Vibe has long been a best-selling toy, and this one just takes that up a notch,” Jeff said.

Over in The Screaming O booth, reps had a variety of new products to show off to retailers and distributors, including the new FingO vibes and their holiday kits for Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

“The Christmas stockings are three years old, but they are selling better than ever,” said Conde Aumann, rep for The Screaming O. “We sold 8,000 of them the first year, and another 8,000 last year. As of today, we have sold 14,000 for this season.

“When we had them at the ANME Show (in July) we had already sold 4,000 units. When we started telling people that we were 50 percent sold out, they really started to order them even more,” she continued. “It’s unusual for people to buy for Christmas that early, but we sold out our initial order and were forced to increase by 6,000 units.”

Bedroom Kandi—a line of pleasure products created by Kandi Burruss, a Grammy Award-winning artist and former cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta—in its partnership with OhMiBod released several new items, including bath and body products and new vibrators.

“One of the items that is really getting attention is the Rock It vibrator,” said Avi Raccah, a rep for the manufacturer. “It’s a bullet vibe, but it is extremely powerful and offers some intense vibration patterns.”

Lingerie manufacturer Coquette also displayed several new pieces to various collections, many of which featured unique twists.

Among the new items in the holiday collection are chemises, babydolls and bra and panty sets that resemble Santa suits. But rather than be pieces that can only be sold and worn during the holiday season, the belts and maribou detailing are removable. Additionally, since the pieces are available in red or black, so they can sell well during the Valentine’s Day season as well, noted Erin Sue, director of marketing and public relations for Coquette.

“Holiday-themed lingerie is such a niche market,” she said. “Retailers don’t always like items that have a specific holiday theme, since it might not sell, and if it doesn’t you have to wait another year to put it on the floor. And even then, you need to put it on clearance since it is from last season.”

By making the items that mark the pieces as holiday specific removable, Erin Sue said, they are not only more versatile for retailers, but customers as well.

ILS continued through Sept. 17 at the Rio. Check AVN.com for continued coverage.

9th Circuit: Rape Victim May Sue Model Mayhem

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Three-judge panel finds that the model site is not protected by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Rape Victim May Sue Model Mayhem

LOS ANGELES—In February 2011, two Florida men, one of whom was an adult performer, lured a woman to a fake audition via the popular modeling website Model Mayhem, after which they drugged and raped her, videotaping the crime for later distribution for profit via the internet. Today, a three-judge panel for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the woman, known only as Jane Doe No. 14, can follow through on a failure-to-warn claim she filed against Model Mayhem's parent Internet Brands Inc. in California in April 2012. This was not the only such incident involving these two men, as AVN reported on at the time.

ADVERTISEMENT


Jane Doe had appealed the lower court ruling that sided with Model Mayhem's claim that it was protected from liability for the actions of the two men because of safe harbor provisions found in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which states, in part, "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."

But the three judge panel—Mary M. Schroeder and Richard R. Clifton, Circuit Judges, and Brian M. Cogan, District Judge—reversed and remanded the lower court's finding, ruling that the CDA "does not bar Jane Doe’s failure to warn claim," because "Jane Doe does not seek to hold Internet Brands liable as a 'publisher or speaker' of content someone posted on the Model Mayhem website, or for Internet Brands’ failure to remove content posted on the website. Flanders and Callum are not alleged to have posted anything themselves."

The panel also concluded, "Instead, Jane Doe attempts to hold Internet Brands liable for failing to warn her about how third parties targeted and lured victims through Model Mayhem. The duty to warn allegedly imposed by California law would not require Internet Brands to remove any user content or otherwise affect how it publishes such content. Any obligation to warn could have been satisfied without changes to the content posted by the website’s users. Internet Brands would simply have been required to give a warning to Model Mayhem users, perhaps by posting a notice on the website or by informing users by email what it knew about the activities of [defendants] Flanders and Callum.

Posting or emailing such a warning could be deemed an act of publishing information," they add, "but section 230(c)(1) bars only liability that treats a website as a publisher or speaker of content provided by somebody else: in the words of the statute, 'information provided by another information content provider.'"

More to the point, the panel concluded, "Jane Doe’s failure to warn claim has nothing to do with Internet Brands’ efforts, or lack thereof, to edit or remove user generated content. The theory is that Internet Brands should be held liable, based on its knowledge of the rape scheme and its 'special relationship' with users like Jane Doe, for failing to generate its own warning. Liability would not discourage 'Good Samaritan' filtering of third party content. The core policy of section 230(c), reflected in the statute’s heading, does not apply, and neither does the CDA’s bar."

The panel also made clear, however, that despite reversing and remanding the lower court ruling, "We express no opinion on the viability of the failure to warn allegations on the merits. We hold only that the CDA is not a valid basis to dismiss Jane Doe’s complaint."

The Ninth Circuit ruling can be found here.

Available Friday, Mental Beauty, Inc.’s new movie features Rotten’s first double vag scene in a six-guy gangbang

Bonnie Rotten’s ‘BonnieLand’ Releases Through Girlfriends Films

Posted Sep 17th, 2014 03:37 PM

VALENCIA, Calif.—Bonnie Rotten’s BonnieLand is available Friday, September 19, from the young star’s studio, Mental Beauty, Inc., and distributor Girlfriends Films. The movie features Rotten’s first double vag penetration scene and triple penetration, wild acts performed during her six-man gangbang.

The Bonnie Rotten showcase also features Remy Lacroix, Zoey Nixxon, Brick Danger, Karlo Karerra, Ramon Nomar, Marco Banderas, Will Powers, Marcus London, and Bill Bailey.

To view the box art and trailer for Bonnie Rotten’s BonnieLand, click here.

Starting with a circus setting where ringmaster Bonnie Rotten takes on six guys at once, BonnieLand explores the erotic world of Bonnie’s mind, where sex fantasies are fulfilled. The film’s second scene has Rotten, dressed as a Native American vixen, capturing and dominating Remy Lacroix. The third scene finds treasure seeker Brick Danger coming across a mermaid (Rotten) who has washed ashore and soon finds himself hooking up with the sexy siren.

BonnieLand also includes a bonus scene from Mental Beauty, Inc.’s debut title, To the Core. The girl/girl scene features Zoey Nixon with Rotten.

 “I’m very excited for people to see the gangbang scene. In addition to it including my first double vag experience, the scene is for my own studio, so I had full creative control. I really wanted it to be especially hot—I think we definitely succeeded!” said the tattooed star and recipient of the 2014 AVN and XCritic.com Female Performer of the Year awards.

In January, Girlfriends Films announced its distribution deal with Bonnie Rotten and her studio, Mental Beauty, Inc. Under the deal, Rotten will produce six titles per year, featuring boy/girl, girl/girl, and kink content with tattooed and un-inked performers.

 “We’ve been extremely pleased at the performance of Bonnie’s films with consumers. They’re really recognizing Bonnie’s great talent and beauty, and they’re responding to her in a big way by snatching up her movies as soon as they hit shelves,” said Girlfriends Films President Moose.

DA In Jesus Fellatio Case Is a Secret Nick Manning Fan

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

"You! Hypocrite lecteur, —mon semblable, —mon frere!" ***

DA In Jesus Fellatio Case Is a Secret Nick Manning Fan

EVERETT, PA—The mainstream press went a bit nuts late last week when news broke that a 14-year-old Everett boy had been arrested on orders from Bedford County prosecutor Bill Higgins, Jr.. The kid's crime? He posted, on Facebook, photos of himself simulating fellatio (that's a blowjob, for you less literate types) with a statue of Jesus on the front lawn of the Love in the Name of Christ Ministry in Everett. The charge? "Desecration of a Venerated Object"—or, in more common terms, essentially "blasphemy."

ADVERTISEMENT


The 1927(!) law says that a person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree if he (or she): (1) "intentionally desecrates any public monument or structure, or place of worship or burial"; or (2) "intentionally desecrates any other object of veneration by the public or a substantial segment thereof in any public place," with "desecration" defined as "Defacing, damaging, polluting or otherwise, physically mistreating in a way that the actor knows will outrage the sensibilities of persons likely to observe or discover the action." It's a charge that could land the kid in prison for up to two years.

Trouble is, the ministry in question never asked for the kid to be prosecuted. In fact, after he showed at their offices one day and apologized to the ministry's owners, they told news station WTAJ that "they would be happy to see the teen serve nothing more than community service, and that they would be happy to have the teen perform that community service at their ministry center."

But Higgins, apparently a right-wing ideologue, wasn't about to be dissuaded. He tweeted a bunch of links about the event to several conservative television hosts with the title "Christianity under attack," and posted to his Facebook page, "I guess I should take solace in the fact that the liberals are mad at me—again. As for this case, this troubled young man offended the sensibilities and morals of OUR community.… His actions constitute a violation of the law, and he will be prosecuted accordingly. If that tends to upset the 'anti-Christian, ban-school-prayer, war-on-Christmas, oppose-display-of-Ten-Commandments' crowd, I make no apologies."

A real sweetheart, eh?

But that's not the half of it! Seems that crossover adult actor Nick Manning, who's well known for his religious views and often talks about them in depth, was checking out his online fandom earlier this month, and noticed that his appearance on The Howard Stern Show on July 18, 2011, where he discussed the meaning of his often-used catchphrase "Droppin' loads!", had been "favorited" by none other than... Bill Higgins, Jr.!

"I liked a @YouTube video http://t.co/tQmzVYal9X Howard Stern – Dropping Loads with Nick Manning," Higgins, who tweets under "@BillHigg," posted on August 16, 2014—but has since removed from both his personal YouTube page and his Twitter account.

But not quickly enough! Seems that Drew Johnson, editorial writer for The Washington Times, caught wind of the post—and recognized the hypocrisy.

"Not only is Mr. Higgins hell-bent on ruining a 14-year-old's life by sending him to jail for a harmless prank, he is behaving like a grade-A hypocrite in the process," Johnson wrote. "On August 15, Mr. Higgins posted a YouTube clip on his personal Twitter account of radio legend Howard Stern interviewing porn star Nick Manning. The video features audio clips of Mr. Manning loudly performing with his female co-stars, calling them 'nasty pigs' and ordering them to engage in sex acts that many American would find revolting.

"Mr. Higgins believes that when a high school freshman puts his pants near a concrete statue, it offends 'the sensibilities and morals of OUR community'," Johnson added. "Yet when an elected official and community leader tweets audio clips of hardcore pornography that many would find both wildly offensive and degrading to women, the values and dignity of the community remain intact—at least in Mr. Higgins' warped brain."

For his part, Manning has issued a challenge to Higgins to debate the ramifications of teen punishments when it comes to defamation of religious iconography. (No word yet as to Higgins' response, if any.)

For more information, try accessing Manning's Twitter feed and/or his official website.

Pretender’s Hynde Slams ‘Porn Stars Trying to Make Records’

Pretender's Hynde Slams 'Porn Stars Trying to Make Records'

LOS ANGELES—Anyone under the impression that rock icon Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders might have a soft spot for women unafraid to express their sexuality in a public setting, even a musical one, now knows that they were 180 degrees off.

In London for tonight's iTunes Festival, Hynde offered her unfettered opinion on overt sex in music to the Evening Standard. As reported by Classic Rock, Hynde "slammed 'exhibitionist' musicians who put too much sex in their acts, saying they’re more like porn stars than pop stars" and insisted that "any of them who blame record label pressure for their performance are lying."

But tell us how you really feel?

“There’s a definite division of what I’d call porn stars trying to make records, and then musicians," she opined. “If you go and see Kate Bush you’ll see a real musician. She takes care of business the way she wants. If a girl walks on stage and starts playing like Jimi Hendrix, believe me, no one will be asking her to take her clothes off.

“If you’re making music and people like it," she added, "that’s what you’re there for.”

Neither does she have any sympathy for musicians who say they have no choice. "If anyone says, ‘I have to do this because my record company told me,’ that’s a lie,” she stated. “The artist is in control of what they’re doing. You can always tell anyone to fuck off.

“If they’re under pressure to get their kit off, maybe they should just be making porn films," she added in a final fit of snark. "Maybe they’re in the wrong game.”

Queens Man Uses Porn to Harass Immigrant Neighbors

Queens Man Uses Porn to Harass Immigrant Neighbors

NEW YORK CITY—Things seem to be heating up in the New York borough of Queens, where a Queens Village man is reportedly so upset that an Indian family has moved next door that he's been placing explicit porn images in his windows where the neighbors are sure to see them, much to their chagrin. Now, the man, who goes by the name Jimmy, has gotten some media coverage from the local ABC News affiliate along with a video segment, as well as a recent mention by The Gothamist, which generously characterizes his behavior as a "protest."

ADVERTISEMENT


Unhinged, may be more like it. According to abc13.com's Jim Dolan, the "nasty neighbor is plastering pornographic pictures in his front windows so the family next door can see. An immigrant family in Queens Village.

"The photographs can be seen clearly from the public sidewalk," adds Dolan, who went to speak with the man as he arrived home in his car. "They are so vile, so intentionally pornographic, that just about anyone would be offended by their public display, especially, the father of the 4-year-old boy who lives right next door."

The neighbors, Sanjeev Aggurawal and his family, told Dolan that the intent of putting the photos where they can see them appears to be to offend them.

"He's upset because some Indian guy moved in next door. That's the basic thing," said Aggurawal.

When Dolan tried to ask Jimmy about the photos, the conversation appeared to go south pretty quickly as Jimmy moved from his car up his front steps to his front door, with Dolan following him.

"I'm drying them out, they got damp last night," Jimmy said.

"They've been up for some time," Dolan said.

"Excuse me," Jimmy said.

"You do that to offend your neighbors, is that the gist of it? Is that what you do, sir? They have children next door," Dolan said.

"Get off my porch," Jimmy said.

The police have been called, of course, and when they do come Jimmy will remove the photos from the window, but as Dolan notes, they don't stay down for long.

"Jimmy took down the photos so our cameras wouldn't see what he was exposing neighborhood children to," he reports. "But Jimmy has taken them down before; he almost always puts them back up as soon as the police drive away. What neighbors want is for the pictures to come down permanently so they can walk their children freely in the neighborhood."

Icon Male Debut Feature 'Football Hero' Streets

Posted Sep 17th, 2014 09:45 AM

MONTREAL—Gay romance studio Icon Male’s first feature, Football Hero has streeted on DVD. From Mile High Media and award-winning director Nica Noelle, Football Hero tackles the gay stigma in football, as Ty Roderick comes out to fellow teammates, igniting controversy and awaking secret desires. The star-studded cast also includes Jamie Sanders, Brandon Wilde, Alexander Greene, Trenton Ducati and Aiden Summers.

“Obviously, the Michael Sam story partially inspired this movie,” says Noelle. “The idea of a rising football star coming out as a gay man, and risking public scorn and discrimination in order to take pride in his sexuality is very intriguing to me. I chose Ty Roderick as the lead because he has a vulnerable quality that was perfect for the role. Ty has a natural complexity and depth, so I knew he wouldn't turn the role into a joke.

ADVERTISEMENT


“I asked Christian X to play the football coach because he was one of the first 'crossover' performers to proudly claim the ambiguities in his sexuality at a time when the industry was far less open minded,” continues Noelle. “Christian was a trailblazer in our industry, just as Michael Sam is a trailblazer in the NFL. I challenge anyone to watch this movie and not see the beauty and passion in all-male sex scenes.”

Hot, brooding football hero Ty Roderick decides to come out of the closet just as football season begins, causing his teammates to bully him out on the field. But do their mean-spirited jokes mask their own gay desires? Brandon Wilde and Alex Greene's aggressive horseplay turns to lust in the showers, while jacked team doctor Trenton Ducati uses the boys' secret tryst to his advantage with baby-faced Brandon. Meanwhile Ty can't take the pressure of being an outcast, so he lets off some steam with pretty young things Aiden Summers and Jamie Sanders. Christian X costars in a non-sex role as the no nonsense football coach.

Movies from Icon Male are unique to the gay marketplace and embody what fans have come to expect from Nica Noelle and Mile High Media – genuine and intimate exchanges between performers featuring forbidden sex, emotion and compelling storyline.

Mark Wood initiates young starlets Carter Cruise, Misha Cross, Marley Blaze, & Dakota Skye to the world of extreme anal sex

LeWood Productions Premieres Trailer for ‘Anal Young ’Uns’

Posted Sep 17th, 2014 09:38 AM

VAN NUYS, Calif.—The trailer for LeWood Productions’ newest offering, Anal Young ’Uns, is now available at EvilAngelVideo.com. The extreme anal movie, a hallmark of many LeWood films, features Hall of Fame woodsman Mark Wood initiating four young, pretty starlets, including cover girl Carter Cruise, to the pleasures of hardcore, backdoor sex.

“Throughout my career I’ve worked with female performers ranging from experienced MILFs all the way to newbie starlets,” Wood said. “With Anal Young ’Uns, Carter, Misha, Marley, and Dakota are all super hot young girls, and their youthful enthusiasm absolutely scorches the screen. God, they’re dirty, dirty girls—pretty on the outside, filthy naughty on the inside, and just all around amazing!”

 “Can I just say how obsessed I am with Mark and Francesca?” exclaimed Carter Cruise. “They are an amazing team, which makes working for them fun, but also rewarding. I really left feeling confident about the scene, and I was still relatively new to anal at the time. Mark can put it down and is definitely one of the best male talents I've had the pleasure of working with.”

“And as for Francesca... swoon! Instant girl crush!” Cruise added. “She made me feel so pretty during photos, and happy talent means hot scenes! This was the first anal scene I felt really relaxed during, and I definitely think that shows in my enjoyment!”

In addition to Carter Cruise, Anal Young ’Uns showcases porn starlets Misha Cross, Marley Blaze, and Dakota Skye. The DVD includes scenes of submission and extreme anal which are expected to delight fans of the genre.

“These really are some of the prettiest girls in the industry, with so much energy and a willingness to take things to the next level sexually,” said LeWood Productions co-director Francesca Le. “It was definitely our pleasure to introduce them to the world of super-extreme anal sex; our fans are going to love seeing these girls take it as far as they can go, and then some.”

Day 1 at ILS: Products for Passion and Canine Fashions

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

And the day wrapped up with the announcement of the StorErotica Awards winners

Products for Passion and Canine Fashions

Posted Sep 16th, 2014 09:55 PM

It was Christmas in September for lovers of lingerie and toys at this week’s International Lingerie Show, which kicked off Monday at the Rio Hotel & Convention Center. And the fun began right away at Shirley of Hollywood, which occupies a large space next to the main entryway. After stopping by to congratulate the company on its new arrangement with Eldorado Trading Co., which is now distributing Shirley’s elegant hanging lingerie—it was immediately apparent that wasn’t the only news afoot. Just across from Shirley’s big booth was Hollywood Poochie: a line of corset harnesses for man’s (and woman’s) best friend that echoes many of Shirley’s most popular styles.

ADVERTISEMENT


We talked to Dana Schlobohm-Walczuk, whose grandfather started the company in 1948, to find out more about how this line of canine apparel came about. “This is brand-new for us. We just debuted it at the Super Zoo show in July,” Schlobohm-Walczuk said. It wasn’t her first visit to the show, which is the largest event hosted by the World Pet Association. The idea for a line of corset harnesses for dogs—something that would be “fashionable and functional at the same time”—came to her about a year ago. “I went to the Super Zoo show to see if it would be something that would be viable,” she said. Once there, both she and her husband though, “OK, this will fit in. Right on.”

Next, she took so styles to an Orange County pet expo and sold every piece. “People love their pets, they love their dogs, and they want to dress them up.”

Asked to pick her favorite style, Schlobohm-Walczuk opted for the leopard ensembles. “Personally I love leopard print—and there’s the ruffles and the bling and the rhinestones. … And we can do his and hers, so they can go on a matching date together,” she explained, pointing out a matching leash and waist purse for girls and a bow tie for the boys.

“We make everything at our factory in Los Angeles,” she said, emphasizing that the designs are fully lined and very comfortable for the dogs. “Our designer, Raquel, has five dogs of her own.” The corset styles can fit dogs of up to 40 pounds, and for bigger breeds there are decorative collars and leashes available.

When asked if she’d be branching out into feline fashion, she expressed reservations: “Cats are tough. They give you the stinkeye all the time.”

Speaking of tough, it wasn’t initially easy to get great shots of the Poochie Hollywood line until they brought in some pros. “We hired some Chihuahua models for our fashion shoot. Seriously! I tried to do a photo shoot with my dog and my friend’s dog, and it was chaos. They wouldn’t behave; they wouldn’t sit still. So we had to get professionals.”

It’s not the first time that Shirley of Hollywood has diversified, Schlobohm-Walczuk said. The company her grandfather started was in the business of selling notions, or findings, to other apparel manufacturers, and it was her father who pushed the family business into lingerie. Now, she’s moving into something new herself—and as we looked at a video of the dogs wearing the same fashions as the human models, she pointed out her own daughter and the family dog. And now they’re dealing with a batch of new vendors. “We’re branching out into the pet market. We found a lot of store, pet boutiques, groomers who have spas and salons and gift sections.”

But for Schlobohm-Walczuk, it’s not just finding a new revenue source that makes this line worthwhile. “The huge benefit for doing this line for me: It’s just joyous.”

With such a tough act to follow, it was time next to hit the distributor booths at ILS, which always provide a great overview of the newest toys on the marketplace. Over at East Coast News, Brian H. gave AVN the walk-through, showing some of the highlights that retailers will be stocking this holiday season. One immediate bit of eye candy was the Impress line from California Exotic Novelties. Brian H. demonstrated its capabilities and its sensitivity to touch. “When you squeeze hard, you get a high speed. When you squeeze it light, you get a low speed.” The line is launching in October, he said.

But the main topic on the agenda, of course, was that big wave on the horizon: the release of the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Though the details haven’t been worked out yet, ECN will be doing a promotion in November that will help “launch this movie in the adult stores.” ECN will be doing its best to help retailers will put “a nice display in the window and get people excited about this movie and get them into the theater.” And then once they see the movie, there will be interest in trying even more toys.

“We carry the official Fifty Shades of Grey line from Lovehoney, and we also carry Sportsheets, which has the Sex & Mischief, which is also a very good line. And there’s the Fetish Fantasy Elite collection. Between all three of these, you could put something pretty magical together for the store.”

But gray wasn’t the only color of note at ECN. There were some lovely new shades coming out from Ovo, which had a large display in the corner of the ECN booth. North American sales manager Dana Divalli was more than happy to show off a dozen brand-new toys from the German-designed line. In addition to two new colors—a rich royal purple and a subtle sky blue—there are many new features in this set of fresh SKUs. All are rechargeable, with control panels that light up, and in 12 well-chosen SKUs they cover all the most popular vibrator styles

In the lay-on vibe department come the S1, S2 and S4. Of these, the S4 offers the newest design: a forked tip that can be used for external stimulation but is also suitable for internal use. It is available in light blue, white and rose. And the smooth, oval-shaped S2 is particularly suitable as an all-body massager.

There are also three rabbit-style models, each offering something unique. The E5 has separate motors in the shaft and the clitoral stimulator, and each can be set to different vibration patterns. In recognition that no two women are shaped alike, the J2 offers a gently curved shaft that is more full at the top, with a long clitoral stimulator. And the E6 is specifically designed as a toy that’s good for girl/girl play: It’s got a two-pronged tip that can hit both the clit and the G-spot on one partner and also a long handle with a motor on its end that can be used to stimulate the other partner.

Other models in line with industry trends are the E2, which changes its vibrations in response to touch, and the R1, R4 and R6 bullet vibrators, with controllers that also vibrate. And finally, there’s even something for the guys: a cock ring with a bullet that can be easily removed for recharging.

After that stop, it was time to check in with Xgen Products, which carries the full Bodywand line—and is just about to sell its millionth vibrator. According to the team, one of the most briskly selling is the Bodywand Mini, which “are just flying off the shelf at every consumer level, from the mainstream stores to the adult stores and on the web.” Andy Green of Xgen was more than happy to unveil the newest models: silver and gold editions for Christmas, and the all-red Love Edition Mini, which will be marketed for Valentine’s Day. He also took out the 2.0 Bodywands—one A/C plug-in and one USB rechargeable—which have rounded heads in colorful silicone (blue for A/C, pink for USB).

Also new and shipping in a couple of weeks are the Secrets vibrating panty line. “The thought process behind that line is to really focus on the panty,” Green said. “Let’s face it: A lot of people have vibrating panties out there, but with some the quality of the actual panty isn’t the best.” Green explained that Xgen is going for “something that is sensual and feminine. … We made a nice lace boy short, a lace g-string—we put a really nice panty in there.” Buyers can choose from eight styles, he noted. “And there are two versions that tie on the sides, and those are good for plus sizes.” Three of the controllers operate remotely with a range of up to 25 feet. “And the massager that’s in there is curved to a woman’s shape and it’s got five functions,” Green said. “It’s not like a typical bullet that might jab somebody in the wrong spot.”

The first day of ILS wrapped in the same way it always does: with a gala fashion show that highlighted styles from many of the exhibitors. Of course, the Hollywood Poochie models got some of the biggest rounds of applause, but there was plenty of enthusiasm for Gregg Homme’s fetish-tinged underwear, Patrice Catanzaro’s sexy Halloween ensembles, sexy metallic bathing suit styles from Bodyshotz and La Chica Rica, and some delicious Christmas-themed lingerie from Dreamgirl. Even Rock On—a manufacturer of sexual enhancement formulas for men and women—got in on the act, with a couple dressed head to toe in trench coats and body suits dancing to “We Will Rock You” as they threw out product into the crowd.

The final team of models came from Eldorado Trading Company, giving it their all as they disco danced and showed off Christmas-themed outfits from Dreamgirl and Pink Lipstick, sexy kicks from Ellie Shoes and Shirley of Hollywood lingerie. In addition to carrying out giant letters spelling out E-L-D-O-R-A-D-O, the models also came bearing gifts for lucky audience members: a Magic Wand, We-Vibe 4, Afterglow massager and Mystim’s Eric vibrator. And then the entire crew of models gave the crowd one last look at the fashions, ending with another look at those stylish canines wearing the latest from Hollywood Poochie.

Wrapping up the evening was StorErotica’s Kristofer Kay, in the house to give out the magazine’s awards for soft goods. The following companies were the winning companies:

Accessory Manufacturer of the Year — Bijoux Indiscrets

Report: South African Porn Industry in Shambles

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

South African Porn Industry in Shambles

LOS ANGELES—An article posted today by IOL highlights the extent to which a once-thriving local adult entertainment industry—South Africa, that is, not L.A.—has been reduced to a shell of its former self because of "piracy and the boom of online content."

The news site adds, "Over the past decade, sales of DVDs have dropped by as much as 90 percent, distributors say. And while there is a huge demand for local content, nobody wants to take the risk of bankrolling expensive films that will only have a few thousand sales because most of the buyers are picking up pirate copies."

ADVERTISEMENT


It was only three years ago, according to the article, that the nation as a whole, and Cape Town in particular, were "on the cusp of breaking through. At the time, film-makers were quoted saying the local porn industry was generating as much as R300-million [US$27.5 million] a year."

But the globalization of all content, including adult content, has made it difficult for local producers to make enough money to ensure that the entire production food chain can get paid.

“I have 1 000 actors, actresses and models who are willing to participate,” said director Tau Morena. “But the challenge is we haven’t found an innovative way to bring the product to market in a sustainable way so that everyone involved can make a decent income.”

The result has been an increase in so-called amateur porn—"thousands of people shooting their own content at home and uploading it to the net," says IOL—but a decrease in sales of professionally produced porn distributed via DVD, a story by no means unique to South Africa.

Indeed, AVN noted the first locally produced porn film in 2010, Mapona. The above-mentioned Morena was the director, and he recounted the roller coaster experience of making and distributing the film to IOL, which observed, "It was a hot commodity at the time. DVDs were flying off the shelves of 250 adult stores which couldn’t restock the porn film fast enough."

But according to Morena, “The success was relative. The distribution of the movie was limited to adult stores and the fact that these are only available in developed cities there were a lot of places the movie didn’t reach… legally.”

Morena also told the site that with the release of the movie came a wave of pirates. “They made a killing with the DVD because they don’t have to obey laws. They sold it everywhere within hours of its release.”

He added, "I have a conservative estimate that there were over a million pirate copies sold. I would meet guys in all corners of the country selling me a pirate copy. Till today, if you travel to most taxi ranks anywhere in the country you can get a disk ranging from R20 to R50 in the streets."

Luckily, his popular website picked up some of the slack, and still does. “We still average around 800 000 plus visits per month and generate over 7 million page views," he said. Still, the ultimately unsatisfactory experience with DVD production has Morena and others wondering what is in store for the local industry.

Not everyone agrees, of course. South Africa's so-called porn king (does every country have one?), who heads JT Publishing, the country’s largest distributor of adult films, says there is still demand for local content—including Afrikaans titles, which he says still “sell exceptionally well”—but he admitted that the tide was running in favor of better-financed and produced professional content from overseas and against local producers aspiring to porn heights.

That aligns with Morena's view of the future, in which more people are shooting porn on cell phones and more women are sitting at home in front of web cams, or as IOL put is, "Anyone with a smartphone and a sense of exhibitionism."
