Steven Scarborough Comments on Retirement, Hot House's Future

Posted Jul 11th, 2014 10:52 AM

SAN FRANCISCO—After an award-winning 27-year run in the gay adult industry, Steven Scarborough announced today that he is stepping down as president of Hot House Entertainment and retiring.

The revelation comes on the heels of an announcement, also made this morning, that Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios has acquired the assets of Hot House Entertainment, the company Scarborough founded in 1993. Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios, along with Naked Sword, make up the gay division of the Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN).

Scarborough decided to attempt a sale after receiving news that the Hot House San Francisco office/studio building was slated for demolition this fall to make way for a new office complex. Facing the daunting prospect of moving to a new facility in San Francisco where the current tech boom is sending rents skyrocketing, Scarborough thought this was an opportune time to exit the industry and pursue other interests. He reached out to Chris Ward, president of Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios, and fast-tracked a deal that allows Scarborough to exit while Ward seamlessly continues the operations of the Hot House brands in their San Francisco offices, just a few blocks away.

“Any two companies going through a process like this face significant operational hurdles, but there are aspects of this deal which make for a smoother transition,” Scarborough explained. “Both companies already make premium gay content for membership sites through the Buddy Profits Affiliate Program. Hot House Director Christian Owen will stay on board to continue making movies for both the HotHouse.com and ClubInfernoDungeon.com sites and Rob LeVan will take over as director of operations there. Fans can be assured that the same quality product will be delivered without interruption while remaining faithful to the brand’s integrity.”

There’s plenty of shared history between the two men and the companies they helm. Scarborough began his career in the adult industry as a director at Falcon in 1987 and quickly became the top director for the legendary studio. He then went on to start Hot House which quickly established itself as a major company known for filming the highest quality films in the industry. In 1997 Scarborough tapped Ward to direct his new fetish line, Club Inferno. Ward parted ways with Hot House in 1999 and started Raging Stallion before eventually acquiring Falcon in 2010.

“It’s fitting that my catalog ends up with Falcon now nearly 3 decades later,” said Scarborough. “I’m thrilled to see Hot House continue with a company that shares my commitment to safer-sex, high-end productions; and with Chris now the President of Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios, this whole thing has come beautifully full circle.” Both Scarborough and Hot House have a long list of top honors in the industry, including Best Website wins at the Cybersocket, XBIZ, and Grabby Award Shows and numerous movie and production awards, including Best Picture for Justice in 2007 and Best Leather and Fetish wins for the The Missing, Verboten, Black & Blue, and the notorious Skuff series.

Scarborough launched the careers of Hot House Exclusives Dick Wolf, Alex Collack, Collin O’Neal, Francesco D’Macho, Vinnie D’Angelo and many others; he also won the Free Speech Coalition’s Lifetime Achievement Award this year.

“Steven’s retirement is truly an historic moment in gay porn,” Ward added. “It means everything to me personally that he trusts my team to carry on his work with the Hot House brands. He is my mentor and all the success I have had in this industry is because of Steven. I am dedicated to protecting his legacy and growing the brands so they remain as fresh and vital as when he started.”

Falcon/Raging Stallion Acquires Hot House Entertainment

Deal forms world’s largest gay adult production company

Falcon/Raging Stallion Acquires Hot House Entertainment

Posted Jul 11th, 2014 10:09 AM

SAN FRANCISCO—Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios announced today that it will acquire the assets of Hot House Entertainment, creating the world’s largest gay erotic company. Hot House president Steven Scarborough also announced that he will retire from the industry after a 27-year career. Falcon/Raging Stallion president Chris Ward will head the combined operations.

“We are excited to bring Hot House into the AEBN family of companies,” commented Ward. “I started my own career at Hot House so it is very significant for me to bring Steven’s company to Falcon/Raging Stallion. We plan to preserve and protect Steven’s outstanding legacy and continue filming in the Hot House tradition and style. Just as I worked hard to protect the Falcon legacy after the Falcon/Raging Stallion merger, I intend to make sure that Hot House fans keep getting exactly what they want.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Scarborough offered his own thoughts on the future of Hot House as part of the Falcon/Raging Stallion mega-studio: “Because I came from Falcon and because Chris came from Hot House, I feel this deal is a perfect fit. I reached out to Chris because of our long history together. I am absolutely confident that Chris and his team will continue the Hot House tradition, which is something very, very important to me. I look forward to seeing Hot House remain an industry leader for years to come.”

Opportunities to expand the Hot House brand include making the 300-title catalog available on cable TV through AEBN’s Align Broadcast group which has quickly become a major player in the US domestic cable marketplace.

Hot House, founded in 1993 after Scarborough left Falcon, quickly became one of the industry’s top studios, known for filming high-quality mainstream erotic films and also launching the Club Inferno video line.  Ward began his own adult career directing for the Club Inferno line before he went on to found Raging Stallion Studios with JD Slater in 1999.  Raging Stallion and Falcon combined forces in 2012, all under the AEBN corporate umbrella. Adding Hot House into the mix now brings the three studios full circle.

Christian Owen, the current film director at Hot House, will continue with the new venture, assuring continuity of content. Director of Hot House Operations Rob LeVan will also remain in place as Director of Operations for the studio group.

In announcing his retirement, Scarborough ends a career that began at Falcon in 1987 where he served for many years as the studio’s head director and the late Chuck Holmes’ right-hand man. Scarborough was instrumental in developing niche films at Falcon, which he continued when he started Hot House. Hot House remains one of the premier "ass-play" studios with its website ClubInfernoDungeon.com.  Hot House mainstream movies are presented on the studio’s flagship website, HotHouse.com. All Hot House, Falcon, and Raging Stallion membership sites are part of the Buddy Profits affiliate program. Films from all three studios are available for VOD at AEBN.com.

For additional information, email Toby Morris, VP of Marketing, Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios, or phone  415-321-6628.

MA Supremes Rule National Geographic Photos Not Kid Porn

MA Supremes Rule National Geographic Photos Not Kid Porn

NORFOLK, Mass.—By pretty much any definition, John D. Rex is not a good guy. He's currently in the Massachusetts Correctional Institution as a Level 3 sex offender, having been convicted of eight sex offenses, including rape and child sexual abuse, so he's not getting out anytime soon. However, thanks to a decision by Massachusetts' Supreme Judicial Court, his sentence won't be extended for possession of child porn while incarcerated.

According to the opinion in Commonwealth v. Rex, authored by Justice Francis X. Spina, "On August 31, 2011, correction officers conducted a search of the defendant's cell, which he shared with another inmate. In a padlocked footlocker assigned to the defendant, the officers found an envelope containing seven photocopies of photographs that depicted naked children. The photocopies ... were black and white, and they appeared grainy. The defendant admitted that the photocopies were his, and he told the officers that they were 'from a pamphlet from a nudist colony that he had gotten many, many years ago that he had cut out and stuck in the envelope.'"

ADVERTISEMENT


In fact, the photos were copied from National Geographic magazines, a sociology textbook and a naturist ("nudist") catalog—and yes, they all depicted nude persons under 18 years of age, all of which could be found in libraries and/or newsstands throughout the state, but that didn't matter: The correctional officers conducting the search arrested Rex anyway, charging him with seven counts of possession of child pornography (and seven counts of being an "habitual offender," since it wasn't his first brush with kids).

However, although the grand jury indicted Rex on those offenses, a district court judge dismissed the charges, "concluding that none of the photocopies constituted a 'lewd exhibition' of the children's body parts as described in G.L. c. 272, §29C (vii)," Justice Spina noted.

The relevant statute states, "Whoever knowingly purchases or possesses a photograph or other similar visual reproduction of any child whom the person knows or reasonably should know to be under the age of [eighteen] years of age and such child is ... (vii) depicted or portrayed in any pose, posture or setting involving a lewd exhibition of the unclothed genitals, pubic area, buttocks or, if such person is female, a fully or partially developed breast of the child; with knowledge of the nature or content thereof shall be punished?"

But though the photos Rex possessed did indeed depict mostly front and rear views of prepubescent boys, the high court focused on the question of whether such images constituted a "lewd exhibition" under decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, most notably U.S. v. Dost, which listed six factors which the court said "provide guidance" for whether a nude photo might be considered lewd. Those factors are:

"1) whether the focal point of the visual depiction is on the child's genitalia or pubic area;

"2) whether the setting of the visual depiction is sexually suggestive, i.e., in a place or pose generally associated with sexual activity;

"3) whether the child is depicted in an unnatural pose, or in inappropriate attire, considering the age of the child;

"4) whether the child is fully or partially clothed, or nude;

"5) whether the visual depiction suggests sexual coyness or a willingness to engage in sexual activity; [and]

"6) whether the visual depiction is intended or designed to elicit a sexual response in the viewer."

Based on those factors, and other Supreme Court case law, the justices upheld the district court's dismissal of the charges.

"Based on our de novo review of the photocopies, it is plainly apparent that their only notable feature is the nudity of the children," the court concluded. "In none of the photocopies is the focal point of the visual depiction a child's genitals, and the children are not shown in any unnatural poses. Rather, the children are portrayed either simply standing around or engaging in ordinary activities in unremarkable settings. The visibility of the children's genitals is merely an inherent aspect of the fact that they are naked. There is nothing remotely sexual, either explicitly or implicitly, in any of the photocopies. The demeanor, facial expressions, and body language of the children suggest nothing inappropriate. In the photocopies depicting more than one child, the children appear to be comfortable in their surroundings and enjoying each other's company in a nonsexual manner. Nothing about the photocopies indicates in any way that they were derived from the sexual exploitation of the children depicted therein, such that their possession would result in the continuing victimization of those children. As we have said, the depiction of mere nudity is insufficient to render a visual image lewd."

Though this decision sets precedent for what constitutes child pornography in Massachusetts, it remains to be seen how other states would view similar material—but if they do decide that the nude photos which were (and possibly still are) common in National Geographic magazines are child porn, one hell of a lot of people are going to be in trouble.

Dana DiValli Takes on Expanded Role at Ovo Products

Dana DiValli Takes on Expanded Role at Ovo Products

Posted Jul 11th, 2014 07:30 AM

Ovo Products, manufacturers of high-end pleasure products, has expanded the role Dana DiValli plays with the company. DiValli has been tapped to serve as global account manager for the Ovo brand.

“My new role as global account manager, essentially, is an expansion of my previous position with Ovo,” DiValli said. “In addition to handling sales and servicing distributors and retailers worldwide, I’m now also more deeply involved with operations and development.”

ADVERTISEMENT


DiValli started with Ovo in March 2013, when the brand was being introduced to the North American market. In her year there, she said, Ovo has expanded greatly, and will continue to do so.

“During the remainder of 2014, look forward to what we’re referring to Phase 2,” she said. “In addition to the highly anticipated expansion of the product line, we are streamlining the manufacturing, distribution and support infrastructure.”

DiValli said her new role in the company is indicative of the continued expansion of the brand’s global presence. “As more and more retailers choose to represent Ovo to their customers, the company’s original goals to become the ‘New Standard’ are being achieved,” she said. “After more than a year in the business, I can tell you that this is one of the most exciting careers anyone could hope to have.”

The international pleasure product manufacturer is preparing to reveal its Phase II production lineup this summer. The initial release consists of 13 styles including new love balls, pleasure rings, lay-ons, rabbits, vibrators, and bullets. All of the motorized styles are rechargeable, and two of the bullets now feature wireless remote controls. And according to company press, each item will be “a functional work of art, worthy of the Ovo name.” Some styles will be on view this weekend at the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo in Burbank, where Ovo will be exhibiting.

Looking For an Unexplored XXX Movie Niche? Try Bigfoot Porn

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

Looking For an Unexplored XXX Movie Niche? Try Bigfoot Porn

THE NORTH COUNTRY—We were pretty sure that all the possible niches adult video fans might want to see had already been done extensively—and then we discovered the bounty that is "Bigfoot porn," which has made a ton of money for its writers.

As every budding cryptozoologist knows, "Bigfoot" (or "Sasquatch" as it's also known) is the name given to a near-mythical species that inhabits out-of-the-way places like deep forests and mountaintops, and has never had a non-blurry photo taken of any of its members. Moreover, back in 2012, researchers at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom and the Museum of Zoology in Lausanne, Switzerland, solicited samples of hair containing alleged Bigfoot DNA in order to test the materials to determine if there actually was such a species.

ADVERTISEMENT


But after testing 37 unknown hair samples out of dozens submitted that proved either not to be hair at all or were too degraded to study, the researchers found that of the mitochondrial DNA extracted from the hairs, "ten ... belonged to various bear species; four were from horses; four were from wolves or dogs; one was a perfect match to a human hair; and the others came from cows, raccoons, deer, and even a porcupine," plus two samples matched polar bears.

Of course, anyone who thinks that mere science can thwart the quest for Bigfoot has another think coming—and we're guessing that the quest for Bigfoot porn is in even less trouble despite those findings.

"Writing Bigfoot porn, a sub-genre of 'cryptozoological erotica,' has earned self-published author Virginia Wade over thirty grand a month," wrote Robin Hardwick for the-toast.net. "That’s a lot of people buying books about having sex with a Sasquatch, and if a lot of people are buying, it must have appeal."

No shit! Wade has produced 16 Cum for Bigfoot books, and that's not counting the anthologies, and her success has (if you'll pardon the expression) spawned a whole industry devoted to humans having sex, either willingly or forced, with mythical creatures like gargoyles, space aliens, minotaurs, leprechauns and just about any other human-beast hybrid a fertile imagination can think of.

And rest assured, it's pretty racy stuff, as these quotes from one of Wade's novels show:

"The dimness of the surroundings offered up enough privacy for me to let myself indulge in the bliss that Leonard [as Wade named her Bigfoot] offered, his hand cupping my breast, my nipple being compressed between his thick, black fingers. Our kisses went on forever, his tongue pillaging the insides of my mouth. What I really needed was to feel that talented, pink appendage slide inside my pussy, driving me wild with sensation...

"I glanced over at my friend. She rode her Bigfoot, his cock buried deep inside of her. Her long brown hair fell down her back, as her perky breasts jiggled with the motion of her hips. Jean watched with an expression of shock, horror, and confusion. I could have cared less what she thought, as we fucked these beasts and enjoyed what they were doing to us. How could you explain something like this to someone who had never felt what it was like to mate with a Sasquatch? Being held in the arms of my Bigfoot was like snuggling into a warm, fuzzy blanket. All thoughts of the life I knew before dissapated, because, being with him, I felt whole.

"Leonard's tongue drove into the folds of my pussy, plunging deep. "Oh... God..."

Most of Wade's Bigfoot novels are available as ebooks on Amazon.com—but the question arises, since no one has yet captured a Bigfoot, and it's unclear whether making an actual adult movie with one would be considered bestiality—and since there are certainly plenty of costumiers who could supply a nice, big, hairy Bigfoot suit, perhaps some adult video producer might want to try her/his hand at a Bigfoot XXX video?

Just a thought.

Falcon/Raging Stallion Go Full Circle … and Back to Icon Brands

Falcon/Raging Stallion Go Full Circle ... and Back to Icon Brands

Posted Jul 10th, 2014 04:21 PM

LOS ANGELES—Icon Brands and Falcon Studios announced today that they have renewed their partnership after a hiatus. According to a release issued today, Icon Brands and Falcon both spent a few months looking at new strategic opportunities, but both parties decided that they could do a lot better together than apart. Once again, Icon has the Falcon and Raging Stallion licenses and will be distributing branded product for the gay adult studio.

"We couldn't be happier," said Jim Carter, a spokesman for Icon, adding "Falcon was a key brand for us, and even though Icon builds brands, we were already there with Falcon, and we didn't want to lose that groundwork. Now we won't."

ADVERTISEMENT


Falcon President Chris Ward expressed praise for the team that revitalized his line over the past two and a half years. "Icon took a brand that needed refreshing and did just that. With vibrant new packaging and terrific new product ideas, they made Falcon the category leader again in no time." He added, "we missed that energy and are glad to have it back."

Icon will show Falcon at its booth at ANME and is busy replenishing the best-selling Falcon Signature Pieces as well as its Manrammers, Balls, Plugs and the many, many new items which filled out the line.

Shipping will begin immediately, but full replenishment will take about 60 days. As Sales Manager Joanie Lee put it, "we're asking for just a little patience as we get back in stock, but we're on a fast track; it's our top priority."

Going forward, the focus will be on a lot of rubber and aggressive gear, speaking to the heritage of the San Francisco landmark lines. 

Said Chris Ward, "We're interested in our market, which isn't the newcomer and isn't the shy guy. It's the guy who plays hard, and we want future releases to reflect that."

Next up for Falcon is BBC, Big Black Cocks: three massive pieces which are a natural extension of the "all-black" in the "legacy" line.

And as Ward says, there's certainly nothing "shy" about that.

Tarantino XXX Creates the XXXL Ray Network

Tarantino XXX Creates the XXXL Ray Network

Posted Jul 10th, 2014 02:07 PM

DENVER, Colo.—New director Tarantino XXX is launching his independent production label, the XXXL Ray Network, and its official website on July 10. The date coincides with the release of his first two films. The XXXL Ray Network was named as an homage to Robert Rodriguez’s cable television network, the El Rey Network, which showcases low-budget grindhouse/exploitation genre films from the '70s, '80s and '90s—a source of inspiration for Tarantino XXX's style of adult films.

ADVERTISEMENT


"I grew up watching all kinds of those drive-in movies from those decades," Tarantino XXX said. "Since he [Rodriguez] created a network that shows those kinds of movies, I thought to create the porno version of that."

Also a fan of adult films—particularly films from the 1990s produced by Vivid Entertainment, Video Team and Wicked Pictures, which were his favorite companies at the time—Tarantino XXX wanted to add his own spin on the adult film world when creating his own production label.

"Paul Thomas, Brad Armstrong, Jonathan Morgan, Axel Braun, Melissa Hill and Steven St. Croix were huge inspirations for me as young, aspiring filmmaker," he added. The content featured on the XXXL Ray Network will target vintage-style adult niches such as action, horror, kung fu, costume play and parody.

Two movies will be available to purchase for download on July 10 exclusively from his website, GrindhouseXXX.com. One is Tarantino Loves Feet, a gonzo/foot fetish movie inspired by the real Quentin Tarantino's love of women’s feet. “When I first started shooting, someone had suggested to me, 'You got to shoot a foot movie since you're Tarantino XXX',” the director explained.

Tarantino Loves Feet features Amanda Tate, Jessica Ryan, Ashlee Graham and Mikki Lynn as well as male talent Tony Starx and Jessy Jones. It also features a bonus scene titled “Missing Reel Scene” after the end credits (inspired by Hollywood's Marvel comic book movies’ famous post-credit scenes), which features a girl/girl pairing of Cali Jade and newcomer Nickey Huntsman.

The second movie, The Game Of Sex, is a character parody inspired by kung fu movies and 1990s video games. “As a huge fan of kung fu movies and '90s video game characters, I came up with this idea to blend those themes with costume play because I believe costume play is a huge niche I think that is growing rapidly successful in porn,” Tarantino said. Directed by The JZA, it features five scenes with Gaia, Angelina Chung, Sheena Ryder, Pamela Balian and Layla Price. The ladies work alongside Tony Starx, Chris Cock, Dominik Kross and Dominick Flynt.

View trailers and photos of all Tarantino’s content and more on the XXXL Ray Network’s official site: GrindhouseXXX.com.

Dr. Marty Klein to Hold Webinar on Infidelity on July 14

Learn about affairs at your convenience!

Dr. Marty Klein to Hold Webinar on Infidelity on July 14

Posted Jul 10th, 2014 01:01 PM

CYBERSPACE—Internationally-known family therapist and educator Dr. Marty Klein will be holding an American Psychological  Association (APA) webinar on July 14, noon-3 p.m. EDT titled "Infidelity: After An Affair, Who Owns The Relationship?"

"Clinically, it's everywhere: infidelity, both online and offline," Dr. Klein said in a press release. "It's easy to see a 'Bad Betrayer' victimizing a 'Good Betrayed.' Or a 'Reasonable Betrayer' responding to a 'Cold Betrayed.' But the value of these models is limited."

ADVERTISEMENT


 What Dr. Klein will attempt to accomplish during the webinar, which can be seen live in Washington, D.C. and which will also be available as video-on-demand (VOD) two weeks after the webcast, is a systemic and effective approach to dealing with infidelity. The topics to be covered include:

• How much are affairs about sex?

CatalystCon West Announces Lineup For Inaugural Film Series

Posted Jul 10th, 2014 12:43 PM

LOS ANGELES—Dee Dennis, founder of the CatalystCon sexuality conference, announced the lineup for the first annual CatalystCon Film Series. The film series will take place Thursday, Sept. 11, and will feature the films Slut: A Documentary Film and Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story.

Slut: A Documentary Film features the stories of girls and women who have been the victims of sexual bullying and slut shaming in the United States and Canada. Emily Lindin, creator of The UnSlut Project, and director Jessica Caimi spoke to women about their experiences with slut shaming, as well as media figures, sexologists, psychologists, and other experts including Drs. Carol Queen, Shira Tarrant and Ebony Utley. Slut explores how we can all work toward change in our schools, communities, and culture, starting with ourselves. A director’s cut of the film will be screened for the first time at CatalystCon West, followed by a Q&A with Lindin and Caimi.

“I am so excited for The UnSlut Project to be a part of CatalystCon's debut film series event,” said Lindin. “The informed, sex-positive community at CatalystCon will be a wonderful audience and a great source of feedback for Slut: A Documentary Film.”

In Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story, former U.S. Navy SEAL Christopher Beck embarks on a new mission as Kristin Beck. Kristin’s journey in search of the American ideals she protected has a whole new meaning as she lives her life truthfully as a transgender woman. Kristin hid her true identity throughout and after her service knowing she would lose it all if anyone were to know her secret. She came out publicly in 2013, a year and a half after her retirement. This film brings exclusive interviews from Kristin’s family and friends about her service, as well as their reactions to her coming out. It also includes exclusive footage of Chris Beck in training and combat. While many people have been supportive, some in the public have expressed more bigotry than she ever expected. After a lifetime of service, Kristin has learned that her fight for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness did not end on the battlefield. 

“I thank CatalystCon for including the documentary film Lady Valor in their film series this September in Los Angeles,” said Beck. “More importantly I wish to thank the entire staff of CatalystCon for their never-ending search for understanding in human sexuality and sparking the activist in all of us toward truth and enlightenment.”

“I’m so excited to be part of the evolution of CatalystCon,” said Carol Queen, who will serve as host for the Film Series and conduct Q&A sessions with Lindin, Caimi, and Beck after their films are screened.

“Offering films that illuminate sex/gender diversity and issues is a logical next step for this terrific conference that brings people together to explore some of the most pressing and interesting sex-related topics of our times,” she said.

CatalystCon West will take place at the Westin LAX Sept. 11-14. Registration for the conference and the Film Series is currently open at catalystcon.com/register. The Film Series is open to the public, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Center for Sex & Culture.

Reinventing the Wand: A Sex Toy Staple Gets Retooled

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

A Sex Toy Staple Gets Retooled

The Magic Wand (formerly the Hitachi Magic Wand) has long been considered THE wand massager. The “Cadillac of massagers” even had a cameo appearance on the season opener last month of Louie, the FX sitcom featuring the warped humor of comedian Louie C.K.

But after a decades-long run at the top with no real challengers—unless you count the Acuvibe, which was sold on traditional drugstore shelves alongside the Magic Wand—there’s been a rush in recent months from various adult novelty manufacturers to put out their version of the vibrator.

ADVERTISEMENT


Some claim to offer more power (the Magic Wand has long been considered one of the most powerful vibrators ever created—too powerful for some women) while others boast unique features, from dial controls to heads that can be placed in different positions.

But why, after all these years, are there so many manufacturers looking to create their own version of the masterpiece?

Bodywand from Xgen Products was one of the first wand massagers to make a splash in the industry. With various sizes and styles to choose from, representatives say it’s what re-invigorated the market.

“We were the first to really offer an alternative wand that featured a combination of power, smooth speed control and beautiful packaging,” said Andy Green, president of Xgen Products, the only distributor that carries the Bodywand collection of vibrators. “They’re easy to sell and always in demand.”

Green said when Xgen Products introduced the Bodywand line of massagers, they predicted that there would be increased demand from consumers for the items.

“As adult products’ mainstream acceptance continues to grow, demand for items that are clean, non-intimidating and effective will grow as well,” he said.

Sex toy critic, educator and blogger Dangerous Lilly said when she began reviewing wand massagers in 2008, the selection was limited.

“The most popular were Hitachi, Acuvine and Wahl,” she said. “Drugstore vibrators, but they had the power! And for a number of people, the power of the Hitachi was what they needed. The Hitachi got this reputation for being the ‘Cadillac of vibrators,’ an analogy I do not understand. But in ’08, there weren’t many ‘This is a sex toy and meant to be a sex toy’ options. Now? Tons.

“They’re all trying to build a better Hitachi,” she continued. “They all want you to believe that their wand is better than the famed Magic Wand.”

But it’s not just power that the new breed of wand massagers are touting. Extra features and attention to little details mean that today’s wand massagers aren’t all the same.

“What sets Bodywand apart is the versatility and attention to detail,” Green noted. “We have A/C powered plug-ins in two sizes—both of which can be used worldwide—A/C and USB rechargeable options, the submersible Aqua, battery-powered minis in a range of colors and available functions. We have the only complete wand collection that is both UL and CE rated, and our mini massagers now feature a redesigned battery compartment that prevents improper battery installation.

“Our goal from day one was to create a line that retailers could easily sell in any environment to virtually any consumer, and I think we’ve achieved that,” he continued.

But Bodywand is not alone in offering options. The Wanachi collection of wand-style massagers comes in various sizes—from the Mini Mini Mini version to the Maxi size—as well as numerous colors and battery-operated and plug-in versions.

NS Novelties debuted their Aria wand massager earlier this year. The piece offers seven powerful, independently controlled functions, whereas the original Magic Wand only has a rocker switch that toggles between Low, High and Off functions.

XR Brands’ Spellbinder Wand Massager, also introduced earlier this year, features 10 pulsation modes and speeds and is both 110v and 220v compatible.

“A lot of thought went into the development and production of the Spellbinder, as we wanted to re-create the power and functionality of famous wands of yesteryear but updated to keep it modern and moderately priced,” XR Brands General Manager Randy Alvstad said. “No other wand massager has the ability to deliver the same intense stimulation that women around the world depend on. And with its value price and 220-volt compatibility, the Spellbinder is a groundbreaking addition to the Wand Essentials lineup.”

LELO’s Smart Wand series upped the ante a bit, adding technology unique to the Swedish design-centric brand and bringing home a Red Dot Design Award for Excellence in Product Design to boot. The cordless wand’s rechargeable battery powers the quiet motor of the waterproof massager. But the real selling point for the Smart Wand is LELO’s patented SenseTouch Technology. Using touch sensors, the Smart Wand steadily increases vibrations as it comes in contact with the body.

“Wand-style vibrators have been popular throughout history, and the magic-wand-style vibrator in particular has had a long and very loyal following,” noted Marina Fourier, product development manager for Shibari Wands, which made its adult market debut earlier this year. “We recognized the need to modernize the look and functionality, while making sure that price points were more reflective of a new millennium consumer market. Our Halo and My Wands are much more affordable, lighter, sanitary, and comes with an improved motor and more speed options, which should appeal to everyone.”

Even Vibratex, which has long been the primary U.S. distributor for the Magic Wand, offers its own Mystic Wand line of wand massagers. The smaller Mystic Wand was designed to go places the bigger and bulkier Magic Wand couldn’t reach, company reps explained.

No matter the size, color, features or power source desired, these days there’s sure to be a wand for everyone.

Evolution of the Wand

AVN reviewers have seen all types of wand-style massagers hit the market. Here's a litle stroll through some highlights that have come across our desks in recent years.

Smart Wand
LELO
The Swedish design brand has finally offered its take on the wand massager. Part of the Insignia collection, the Smart Wand is extremely powerful and perfect for all-over body massage. The Smart Wand incorporates LELO’s SenseTouch technology, which means it has touch sensors that allow vibrations to intensify once the wand comes into contact with the body. The Smart Wand offers eight patterns of vibration and pulsation and is rechargeable and waterproof.

Magic Wand
Vibratex
Hitachi Magic Wand, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways … There really aren’t many “classic” toys still on the market, but there’s a reason women are still clamoring for the Hitachi Magic Wand. It’s reliable. Even using the wand over clothes on the lowest setting can still produce some mind-blowing orgasms. The Magic Wand plugs into any outlet, and the various speeds are gained via a lever control on the handle. The neck is just flexible enough to really get the head of the piece in place. And the wide head covers plenty of skin and delivers powerful vibrations without stopping. We love the Hitachi Magic Wand, and consumers really love the Hitachi Magic Wand. Sometimes you just can’t beat the classics.

Mystic Wand
Vibratex
This waterproof vibe features a silicone bulbous head and a flexible base that lets it move easily for great stimulation. The six vibrations functions are controlled through a simple touch of a button on the stem. A separate switch controls the on/off functions, so there’s no need to worry about losing power in the middle of a session.

Bodywand Midnight
Xgen Products
The Midnight version of the popular wand-style massager from Xgen Products offers a one-finger dial control to take the massager through its multiple speeds. The head and shaft are silky soft and the head is flexible on the neck to reach more places. The Bodywand Midnight is also compatible with all accessories available for Bodywand massagers.

Rechargeable 8 Speed + 8 Mode Massager
XR Brands
For some, the drawback to a wand-style massager is that it traditionally comes with a cord; plugging in really gives it that extra “oomph” sometimes. But this battery-operated version from Wand Essentials doesn’t skimp on the power by losing the cord. With the standard design, it delivers more power and more possibilities without being relegated to one spot near a wall.

Fairy MiniMini
Merci Toys
Part of the line of durable and powerful wand-style vibrators from Merci Toys, the MiniMini offers up a compact size, but a high-powered massager. A wheeled control on the base takes it from mild to wild. And users can choose from two power sources to increase their pleasure. A corded battery back included with the massager allows for a little more mobility, but a plug-in cord attachment (sold separately) gives it a little more kick.

Mood Fantastic
Doc Johnson
This wand-style massager not only delivers intense vibrations, but also features a pulse option that kicks in with the simple touch of a button. The massager’s handle is ergonomically designed for all-over body massage.

My Mini-Miracle Massager Electro Power Kit
California Exotic Novelties
This wand-style vibrator has a curved handle that is ergonomically designed, and it also comes with its own unique attachments. The two-speed, high-intensity motor is powered by a corded plug.

Climax Twist
Topco Sales
One twist is in the middle: Users can lock this foot-long purple powerhouse into a 90-degree boomerang shape. The other twist: It’s two vibes in one, and both ends—a wand-style clitoral stimulator and a hefty insertable G-spotter—are powered by separate seven-function rechargeable motors. Though it’s not waterproof, this plastic and rubber vibe is easy to clean, can be used with either water- or silicone-based lubes, and is free of phthalates and latex. The powerful motor also can be turned loose on the shoulders and back.

Wanachi Rechargeable Massager
Pipedream Products
When your horniness level calls for breakin’ out the big guns, you want to reach for this puppy, the kind of toy you plug into the wall, the kind of toy that takes no prisoners, the kind of toy that’s gonna need a lotta cleaning by the time you’re done with it. What makes this particular massager special, though, is the rechargeable factor. No need for batteries, and no annoying cord to tangle with, just lots of buzzing power to roam with as you please.

Orgasmatronics Ready To Create Buzz In World Of Strap-Ons With Ambrosia

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

Orgasmatronics Ready To Create Buzz In World Of Strap-Ons With Ambrosia

DENVER—Less pants. More Science.

That’s the motto of Dr. X. Treme and the staff at Orgasmatronics Inc., the company behind the Ambrosia Vibe, a bionic strap-on that vibrates when touched.

“The entire thing started because I was interested in getting into the field of teledildonics,” explained Dr. X, who in a past life worked as a quantum physicist for the government. “My first version had various inputs and electronics housed in a complicated base.”

ADVERTISEMENT


With input from friends and more, Xtreme has drastically modified the design of the Ambrosia and taken it to the people in the form of an Indiegogo.com campaign in an effort to fund production of the product. Though the campaign still has more than two weeks to go, it has already reached more than 150 percent of the initial funding goal $32,000 and has started funding stretch goals.

The Ambrosia Vibe differs from other dongs used in strap-on harnesses because it has a sensor in the shaft that responds when stimulated by activating a bullet vibrator housed in the base. The bullet vibe helps the dong to stimulate the wearer like a real sex organ.

The original version, Dr. X explained, had a complicated base, and input from friends and others got him to change the design, the performance and more.

“I was getting feedback, and started thinking that I needed to be thinking about how a real body part functions and responds and work from that,” he told AVN. “After seeing how many people are into strap-ons, I wanted to treat it not just like a sex toy, but as an extension of the body.”

Now, a sensor in the cavity of the Ambrosia Vibe responds to pulling, sucking, stroking, penetration and other versions of stimulation and in turn stimulates the wearer with the bullet vibe. If the Ambrosia detects a short squeeze and release, the vibrational reponse is a short, soft pulse. If the Ambrosia detects a soft, rhythmic motion, the response is a continuous, soft vibration. And so on, and so on. The Ambrosia can be used during solo or during partner play, and Orgasmatronics’ website features videos with a number of ways to use the piece.

The company’s goal is to increase the diversity of sexual experiences for all people, all while using less pants and more science.

Elevated X Offers Promo to Benefit ASACP

Posted Jul 09th, 2014 04:17 PM

LOS ANGELES—The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is grateful to announce that online content management system (CMS) provider Elevated X will be holding another promotion benefitting the association.

To show its support of ASACP’s ongoing mission to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials on the Internet, during the month of July, Elevated X will donate 15 percent of gross new CMS product sales to the ASACP Foundation.

ADVERTISEMENT


The promotion is a step up from similar offers by Elevated X in 2010 and 2012, which saw a 10 percent donation of CMS sales benefitting ASACP, and provides a great way for both old and new sites to support the association while upgrading the platform they operate on.

In addition to its financial support of ASACP, Elevated X plays a positive role in online child protection by adding the ASACP-developed Restricted To Adults (RTA) website label to its default web page templates, making it easy for adult website owners to secure their web pages from unauthorized underage viewers, while providing parents with a tool that delivers better results from browser-based filtering solutions.

 “Children’s rights and child protection is an important issue to us,” AJ Hall, Elevated X co-founder and CEO, stated. “ASACP is doing good work and we welcomed this opportunity to show them our support.”

ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning explained that this type of fundraiser exemplifies the creativity that companies show in supporting the association and its laudable goals, demonstrating that stakeholders are taking proactive steps towards protecting children online.

“The generous support of digital media companies and other stakeholders allow ASACP to carry out its mission to operate our CP Reporting Hotline and more,” Henning said. “Via financial, material and marketing support, and by adding RTA labeling, following ASACP’s Best Practices, Code of Ethics and other measures, shows our supporters make a difference.”

Jimmyjane's Iconic Form 2 Gets Upgrade in New Luxury Edition

Posted Jul 09th, 2014 04:15 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—Following the success of the Form 2 Waterproof Rechargeable Vibrator, and to celebrate the fifth anniversary of its release, Jimmyjane is presenting a premium addition to the line: Form 2 Luxury Edition.

Originally designed by Yves Behar and Ethan Imboden, Form 2 has become an iconic product for Jimmyjane. The introduction of Form 2 Luxury Edition further exemplifies Jimmyjane’s commitment to creating innovative pleasure products without compromising personal style, wellbeing or values.

ADVERTISEMENT


The release of the Luxury Edition marks the fifth year anniversary of Form 2, which launched in 2009. A modified version of the rabbit with “just the ears,” the Form 2 is small enough to deploy during couples play. And with a motor in the tip of each ear, it delivers strong vibrations when it comes in contact with the body.

For five years Form 2 has been a best seller for Jimmyjane. The vibe been honored with numerous design accolades, including an International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from Fast Company and IDSA, a GOOD Design Award and a Spark Award.

For the Luxury Edition, the Form 2 shape has been adorned with sleek black silicone, a 24 gold insignia, and black and gold-detailed charging stand. It comes with chic special-edition packaging and a new USB universal charging system. The vibrator employs the same functionality as the original Form 2: a compact design that offers intense vibrations. Each flexible ear is internally powered for dynamic stimulation. As the two vibrators interact, they surround a touch-point and create an entirely unique sensation. The new Luxury Edition also features a Spontaneous Mode in which the user relinquishes the power of control to Form 2 as it cycles through impromptu variations of modes and power levels.

“The success and notoriety of Form 2 continues to surpass our expectations, and shows no signs of slowing down. The customer testimonials, retailer feedback and press coverage of this vibrator is astounding, and has created Jimmyjane brand evangelists worldwide. Form 2 Luxury Edition adds an extra touch of style and sexiness to your most private moments when you feel at your most vulnerable. It makes each intimate experience feel sexy and special and we know it will be a perfect addition to our customers’ collections,” stated Molly Murphy, sales and marketing director at Jimmyjane.

Mixing body-safe materials and accessible design, Jimmyjane has created pleasure products with mass appeal that have helped adult pleasure products cross over to the mainstream. Demand for high-quality sex toys has been on a steady rise in recent years as consumers recognize their value and positive effects on sexual wellbeing and relationships.

Based on customer feedback, the Jimmyjane team reports that the Form 2 has become a go-to bedroom accessory for its customers. The company’s goal for the Form 2 Luxury Edition was to create an even more refined and sophisticated incarnation of its most established favorite. As with all of Jimmyjane’s products, the Form 2 Luxury Edition is designed to fit into its customers’ carefully curated lives—both existing fans and style-minded newcomers alike.

FORM 2 Luxury Edition retails for $189 and is available July 9. For more information, go to Jimmyjane.com.

Industry Vets Form All-Gay Ad Network GayAdShop.com

Posted Jul 09th, 2014 03:24 PM

MONTREAL, Quebec—Gay market veterans Rainey Stricklin, Joe Stricklin and Roger McMan have joined forces to form GayAdShop.com, an all-gay, pay-per-click advertising and publishing network.

 “We looked around the marketplace and realized there was a glaring deficit when it came to a dedicated gay advertising network,” said Roger McMan, who also runs MyGayCash.com. “As an advertiser myself, I found it very frustrating to have to weed through dozens of 'straight' networks trying to eke out a bit of quality gay traffic.”

ADVERTISEMENT


The new network focuses solely on gay traffic, and while advertisers can target by device, country, times of day, etc., the company is mainly concentrating on desktop traffic right now. Additionally, both publishers and advertisers get the convenience of a self-service bidding platform with the quality of an experienced account management team available to all clients, no matter their monthly spend.

“Our goal is not primarily quantity to start, but quality,” said partner Joe Stricklin. “We're not focused on how many impressions we serve daily, but rather that the traffic works for our advertising clientele, and therefore creates a profitable situation for all parties.”

For advertisers, GayAdShop provides a real-time CPC bidding platform, banner, text and pop-up/under ad spots, automated creative weighting based on performance, targeting by domain, device, keyword, and more, and both direct buys and run-of-network available.

For publishers, the company offers everything from simple invocation codes, to invoicing and relationship management, allowing clients just sit back and rest assured that our technology combined with staff delivers fast load times, advanced click-fraud protection, and algorithms that ensure revenue is maximized. Best of all? No more straight ads ending up on client sites, wasting space and money.

 “We want to be more than just another ad network,” said Rainey Stricklin. “We want to be a partner, helping advertisers find the quality gay traffic they need and helping publishers manage their ad inventory efficiently and profitably.”

The team at GayAdShop is currently integrating publishers and signing up advertisers and is interested in talking with both about their new service and platform. To sign up as an advertiser, click here, and click here to sign up as a publisher.

For more information about the system, email here or contact Rainey here.

Pink & White Walks the Walk for AIDS Walk San Francisco

San Francisco queer porn company joins Bay Area fundraiser

Pink & White Walks the Walk for AIDS Walk San Francisco

Posted Jul 09th, 2014 10:24 AM

SAN FRANCISCO—Pink & White Productions has teamed up to join the annual fundraiser AIDS Walk San Francisco, a 10-kilometer walk in Golden Gate Park on Sunday, July 20, that will benefit nearly 40 Bay Area AIDS service organizations offering diverse programs such as HIV testing and clinical care, to food and housing, and direct financial assistance. 2014 marks the first year Pink & White will participate as an official team, with a goal to raise $1,000.

Pink & White's team includes director Shine Louise Houston, marketing director Jiz Lee, photographer Tristan Crane, CrashPadSeries.com star Andre Shakti, as well as cast, crew, family, and friends. The company welcomes participants to join them, and will be walking the route with St. James Infirmary in support of sex workers' rights.

ADVERTISEMENT


This year, Pink & White's participation in AIDS Walk SF makes a timely statement: California's "Condom Bill" AB 1576 is forcing its way through the Senate without regard for the adult industry's concerns and objections, ignorant of the fact that porn has seen zero on-set transmissions in over 10 years. Meanwhile, the new "face" of HIV is that of young, heterosexual African-American women: a 2010 CDC reports that Black women comprise 64 percent of new HIV infections in the USA. With this pertinent information, Pink & White acknowledges and aims to support organizations that are working effectively towards prevention and treatment for communities who are actually at risk and affected by HIV.

CSC Goes to Indiegogo to Fund Erotic Reading Circle Anthology

Posted Jul 08th, 2014 05:21 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—On July 1, 2014, the Center for Sex and Culture (CSC) and the Erotic Reading Circle launched a month-long fundraiser to publish its new anthology entitled Sex Still Spoken Here.

The Indiegogo campaign will run throughout July with a goal of raising $5,000.

"A mighty goal, we know," said Dr. Carol Queen, one of the book's editors, "but this money will go towards printing costs and actually paying our 27 writers. Radical! As a volunteer-run project, we really need your help."

The Erotic Reading Circle (ERC) is a group of writers and listeners that has gathered every week since 2006, at San Francisco’s Center for Sex and Culture, to share stories of desire and longing in a supportive and fun community setting.

"We believe that there should be more erotic writing in the world, not less, so that readers have access to a wider, more realistic, more human array of erotic expression," Dr. Queen wrote in a press release. "Thus this new anthology, named in honor of the first Erotic Reading Circle anthology, Sex Spoken Here, published in 1997 by Down There Press."

The ERC was developed At Good Vibrations in the 1980s, and when it stopped happening at Good Vibes, CSC was kindly allowed to carry on the flame.

The book, which will be the first anthology published by the CRC, will feature material from 27 Circle writers, including horehound stillpoint, Seeley Quest, Simone Corday, Sinclair Sexsmith, Jeff Jacobson, Avery Cassell, Dorothy Freed, Scott Bentley, C.J. Schneider, Anáin Bjorquist, Christine Solano, Lilycat, Jack Fritscher, Norman Armstrong, Holly Zwalf and more, plus sexy material from the editors, Dr. Carol Queen, Jen Cross, and Amy Butcher.

The Indiegogo campaign can be found here, and a promotional video by Jen Cross can be found here. The project also has a Facebook page and a Twitter account, and the editors ask that those tweeting use the hashtag #ssshbook.

"Every dollar helps," Dr. Queen said, and those with deeper pockets can score an e-book for $7 or splurge for $20 and receive a printed paperback. Check out the campaign site for even more rewards.

Naughty America Signs Nicole Aniston as 'Role Model'

Posted Jul 08th, 2014 05:01 PM

CYBERSPACE—Nicole Aniston, the 2013 Penthouse Pet of the Year and a former AVN Awards Show trophy girl, has signed a one-year contract with Naughty America to become an exclusive "role model."

The four-year adult entertainment industry veteran will be featured on NaughtyAmerica.com and will also serve as a celebrity spokesperson for the brand.

According to company reps, Aniston is only the second performer to contract with Naughty America. Created in 2003 by CEO Andreas Hronopoulos, the site is known for its prolific production of erotic vignettes covering many niches. Hronopoulos looks forward to working with the energetic and popular performer.

“Since 1776, people have fantasized about Nicole Aniston,” Hronopoulos joked. "She's a role model for Naughty America." Hronopoulos expanded on what it's like to be a role model for the brand in a recently published piece on Medium.com.

Aniston seems equally pleased with the arrangement. "There's no other company I trust more to represent me respectably and fairly, and I can't wait to represent the brand that has always upheld such a high industry standard," Aniston said.

Aniston was first featured on Naughty America in 2010 and has since starred in more than a dozen scenes for the company.

"I am extremely excited to start a new phase of my career with such a unique group of trailblazers who will be setting a new industry standard," Aniston said. "I hope to further my ability to improve upon myself, share in new endeavors with my favorite company and give the fans exactly what they deserve."

Allie Haze, Mason Talk Hard X Anal Showcase ‘Allie’

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

Allie Haze, Mason Talk Hard X Anal Showcase 'Allie'

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—A Mason-directed star showcase is an event that almost always proves a critical/awards darling, as evidenced by her 2014 AVN Awards-heaped Anikka and much-exalted Asa Akira Is Insatiable trilogy.

So for Mason to call a new such offering one of her favorite movies she's ever made, you know it must truly be something to write home about, so to speak. And that's exactly what the reclusive director has to say about Allie, her latest from Hard X/O.L. Entertainment, in which showcased star Allie Haze not only performs anal for the first time, but performs it in every scene.

ADVERTISEMENT


So impassioned is Mason about Allie, which streets Wednesday, that she's embarked upon an ultra-rare, albeit also ultra-restricted, promotional campaign for the movie, speaking about it on a podcast with her star for the Hard X blog and with AVN.

"Everybody knows what my favorite movies are, and this is right up there with those," Mason asserted. "I'm not one to hype the things that I do, but this is a very special movie. I just cannot stop thinking about how much [Haze] brought to this and how proud I am to even at this point promote this movie."

As illustration of just how much Haze did bring to the project, Mason divulged, "There were some 16-, 17-, 18-hour days, there were 3 a.m. call times. I know the last day, we both had probably two hours sleep and I believe her call time was 4 a.m. She was going to Australia the next day. There were just a lot of days where we didn't sleep and just did what we had to do."

But beyond the grueling hours, there's one more bit of information Mason revealed that paints Haze's total commitment to the endeavor in a whole other light: "Originally this movie was planned as only one anal, and then I got a call from [O.L. Entertainment] saying she wanted to do every scene anal. And I was like, 'Oh, ok ... this kind of changes everything.' It was totally her call and totally in alignment with her competitive, generous spirit."

To find out what led her to such an audacious decision, AVN turned to Haze herself, who explained, "You know, it's very common for girls when they do a showcase where they're starting something for the first time, they only do one scene, and I always feel like, I'm always paying attention to the fans, and they get really frustrated. They're like, 'Only one scene? Are you kidding me? We've been waiting this long and you're only gonna give us one scene and then we have to wait six months to see another one?' So I figured, I made everybody wait five years, so it seemed silly not to just go balls-to-the-wall and give them everything I had."

On top of that, however, Haze noted, "I wanted to do it for myself, to challenge myself, because I was so excited that my body was finally ready to do it ... I know for a lot of people it's a business move and things like this, but I was literally not physically capable of doing it, no matter how hard I tried. So to finally be able to conquer that for myself was a really cool thing for me, and I was like, 'I want to do this all.'"

Asked how she did manage to leap that hurdle, Haze mused, "Basically, not only in the business but in my personal life, I think I went from being a girl to a woman. And I always was sitting around waiting for the opportunity, like, 'OK, when it's time to grow up, people will start shooting me for it and I'll grow up.' And I turned 27, and I was like, 'It's time to grab the bull by the horn. I want to do this, and I'm going to do this, and I'm going to speak up and do this.' It really has a lot to do with the fact that I'm ready to grow up in this business. I can do more than what everybody thinks I can do. And I kind of wanted to show everybody that."

Mason expounded on that sentiment, offering, "I believe, as most people go through, [Haze] is going through another sexual evolution; this is the next step in that evolution. For me, there's a magic ingredient for a great movie and it's a performer who gives it her all sexually, a performer who will let you see her emotionally, wrapped around strong visuals. And when Allie showed up, she gave everything to all those elements. We take a journey with her that transcends the physical requirements of doing anal. I'm proud of her, I want her to get her recognition, I want her to be celebrated, and she's deserving of the celebration."

Another magic ingredient, of course, is choosing the right co-stars, and Haze reports that every one of hers in Allie holds very personal significance: "James Deen—that's the first time I've ever worked with him one-on-one. Ramon [Nomar] is my first guy that I did boy/girl with. Mick [Blue] was the first scene that Mason ever watched with me. Manuel [Ferrara] is one of the people that I trust the most, and he brings out sides of me that I didn't even know existed every time I work with him. And I thought nobody better than our current dirty girl, Adriana Chechik—new kid on the block, showing us all how it's done, taking it upside-down and sideways with grace and beauty, I was like, 'This is my girl.' And then Lexington Steele, I mean, he was my Darth Vader, so ...

"Each person had a piece of me, and I think that really comes across in the chemistry in the movie, because everybody knew that they were chosen for a reason."

Hammering home the overriding conviction, Haze attested, "Mason and I were really wanting to come out with a punch with this. There's not a lot of companies around still that would shoot a movie like this, so I'm very grateful for the fact that [Hard X] saw something in it and wanted to give me this opportunity."

Giggling, she added, "I feel like a little Disney princess that always wanted to dress up, and I finally got to do it."

Giant Dreams: Pipedream’s Nick Orlandino Builds an Empire

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

Pipedream's Nick Orlandino Builds an Empire

Nick Orlandino has been a fixture in the adult novelty business for more than 30 years, his name synonymous with Pipedream Products. But now, his reach is growing rapidly in all sectors of the adult business.

Orlandino got his start at the age of 15 in the adult and gift industry unloading trucks for Forum Novelties in New York and eventually worked his way up to general manager. In 1992, he relocated to Los Angeles and joined Pipedream Products as vice president of sales and marketing. In 1994, he became a partner in the corporation and now he runs all day-to-day operations at Pipedream.

ADVERTISEMENT


Orlandino and his companies Giant Media and Diamond Products have made headlines in adult and mainstream publications for his acquisitions in the novelty and movie sectors of adult.

Recently, Orlandino and Diamond Products—a holding company for which Orlandino serves as chairman and CEO and that owns Pipedream Products—acquired design-centric pleasure products manufacturer Jimmyjane.

“People are always shocked at what Pipedream does,” Orlandino told AVN. “We’ve been known for many firsts in the industry, and for our cutting-edge decisions. Our motto has always been to offer great products at a fair price, and we like to think of ourselves as the Ford/Chevy of novelties. We recognized that we needed a high-end brand to add to our family of brands, and Jimmyjane was the perfect fit.”

Jimmyjane will continue to operate separately, maintaining its product development, creative, online, sales and day-to-day operations teams at its corporate headquarters in San Francisco.

“It’s a great brand and one of the most well known and widely respected luxury brands in the world,” Orlandino said. “Jimmyjane has been featured in every major magazine and, above all, people respect it as a brand. Since we’re known for our award-winning branding, Jimmyjane fits right into our philosophy. Although the companies offer very different products, our approach and dedication to quality is shared.”

While the announcement about Pipedream and Jimmyjane was surprising to some, perhaps even more so was the announcement last year that Orlandino and his Giant Media Group had taken complete control of Devil’s Film’s catalog and day-to-day operations.

“Devil’s had potential, and a great opportunity presented itself,” he said of the business move. “I’ve known Steve [Volponi, vice president of production and sales] and Eric [Gutterman, vice president of operations] for a long time—they’re both hard-working, creative guys, and they needed someone with vision, guidance and the financial backing to take them to the next level. Opportunity knocked, and I had to open the door.”

The move was not only a strategic one for Orlandino, but also a good one for employees at Devil’s Film.

“Nick buying Devil’s Film has been an amazing transaction for many reasons,” said Volponi. “Nick does nothing small at all. He gave us the means and the reins to take the company to a level we weren’t able to previously. Nick loves a challenge; with his guidance and his help we gained business contacts we never had before.”

But the new leadership offered other advantages in addition to new contacts, Volponi added. It allowed the adult studio to move up a few notches in the quality of the product it produces.

“Nick turned over production to me with a no-holds-barred amount of backing to bring us from where we were to a much higher quality than we previously delivered,” Volponi said. “I knew it was there before, but it was just outta my reach. I was kinda working with my hands tied. He knew I had passion, and I know Nick is a passionate guy about his work and creations. We’re a great fit friend-wise, and it carries over into our working relationship. Go big or go home.”

With Orlandino and Giant making the move with Devil’s Films, longtime veterans of the video side of adult are getting to know this shrewd businessman.

“I’ve been in the business for over 30 years and I know both sides of the industry very well,” Orlandino said. “My reputation with Pipedream and my track record speaks for itself. I will take the same approach that I have with all of my other business and apply it to the video side of the business.

“In the novelty industry, we do things differently than most of the video companies,” he continued. “I plan to focus on marketing and merchandising to build the brand up, just like I did with Pipedream.”

At the core of it all, though, is Pipedream Products. The company started selling glass pipes and adult-themed gag gifts. Today, the brand offers various best-selling and highquality lines, including Icicles, Fetish Fantasy and Ceramix.

During his tenure at Pipedream, Orlandino has developed several business relationships and friendships, many of which date back decades. And sometimes, those relationships overlap for the good of the company.

“Personally I would describe him as my friend, boss and mentor,” said Steve Sav, vice president of sales for Pipedream Products. “Nick and I started out together—him at Forum Novelties and me as an assistant gag buyer at Claire’s boutiques. At this point, I’ve known him about 24 years.”

The two maintained their personal and professional friendship through the years, even after Orlandino moved to Pipedream Products and Sav became a buyer at Spencer Gifts. 

“In 2005, I left to start a sourcing and consulting company,” Sav said. “Nick and I were always in China at the same time, and around that time he asked me to cover a few accounts. By 2009, he had asked me to come on board full time. I’ve never looked back.”

Sav said one of the keys to Orlandino’s success as a businessman is that he embraced mainstream retail ideas such as brand extensions, plan-o-grams, and consumer-friendly packaging.

“Think back only four or five years ago at what adult novelty retail looked like,” he said. “Look at it now. He’s taken these mainstream ideas and developed them for the adult retail market to help create an environment that’s attractive and female and couple friendly.

“There was a time when no one would meet with us,” Sav continued, “No one cared about carrying Pipedream in their stores. Now, we’re the main supplier and focal point of almost every category in an adult store.”

Sav said the company’s proprietary PD Plan-o-gram software and consumer-friendly packaging have enabled any adult store anywhere in the world to build a Pipedream Boutique to increase sales, build brand awareness, create customer loyalty and offer a better in-store experience to the shopper. Every distributor and store owner who use these tools have seen their businesses grow, he said.

“At the very first Erofame in Potsdam, Germany, in 2010, we were having a 3 a.m. sales meeting,” Sav said. “Nick had this feeling that we were on the verge of something great. The sales staff, art department and operations were all getting what they needed to build a new Pipedream. We had our best show to date, we’ve grown incredibly fast, and we’ve never looked back. Nick continues to build an incredible team to support his plans, goals and ideas for the future of Pipedream and his other companies. I can’t wait to see where we go next.”

Despite extending his reach into other segments of the adult community, Orlandino continues to be focused on Pipedream and not letting things get stale. The novelty company was the first to street a line of products molded from and featuring a TS performer with their Mia Isabella Collection. The line was billed as the first-ever complete transsexual sex toy collection.

And now, the mega-manufacturer has teamed up with AVN’s 2013 Performer of the Year Bonnie Rotten to develop a line of toys centered around her.

Rotten told AVN that she sought out Pipedream Products because she knew the company could deliver what she envisioned. “Like anyone else, who wouldn’t want to be immortalized by having their own toy collection?” she said. “So my journey began, and I approached Pipedream seeking the opportunity to create something different and awesome. I knew they had the ability as I have seen the huge variety that they have to offer in stores all around the country and the world.

“I set up a meeting with Nick, and we spoke about what we could do for the toy lines and what ideas I have to make this special,” she continued. “After going back and forth to finalize the deal, we had the shoot and set up the toy molding! That was so much fun … kind of weird, but interesting! While we did the shoot we talked about different ideas and went over the products. A couple weeks later I received some photos and wow… this Be Rotten toy line is going to be something epic! I can’t wait!”

Despite the flurry of activity amongst all of his companies, Orlandino said he doesn’t plan to let up. Giant Media Group recently teamed up with Daring!, a high-end European production company owned by Scala.

“Giant will distribute the Daring collection in North America, and we’re excited about the partnership,” he said.

On the novelty side, he noted, “Diamond is currently vetting companies regularly, and plans on acquiring three to five existing companies in the next three years. I’m excited about the future for both companies.”

Orlandino—whose present titles are chairman and CEO of Pipedream Products and Diamond Products, CEO of Giant Media and CEO and founder of the ANME Founders Show—is also a former treasurer of the Free Speech Coalition. In 2012 he was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame.

In addition to his corporate duties, Orlandino remains committed to civic responsibilities. He’s the founder of the Frank N. Orlandino Scholarship Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing tuition assistance for students with financial difficulties. Orlandino is also recognized for his charitable contributions to Rock Out Cures, a nonprofit organization based in New York that provides financial assistance to the American Cancer Society, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. He stays active in the local community through volunteer activities and charitable endeavors, including annual contributions to the Sierra Canyon School Foundation.

“Nick the man and the businessman are the same person,” Sav said. “Both are passionate about Pipedream and the adult industry. Both are driven to success. Both care deeply about the people close to him. And both are focusing energies on building a world-class company.”

Minna Life Turns To Kickstarter For Backing For kGoal Kegel Trainer

Minna Life Turns To Kickstarter For Backing For kGoal Kegel Trainer

Posted Jul 08th, 2014 10:44 AM

SAN FRANCISCO—Minna Life has once again taken its vision to the people, this time with a Kickstarter campaign for the kGoal, a smart Kegel trainer that functions as both an exercise tool and a performance monitoring and guidance system.

While the Kickstarter campaign still has almost a month left, the project has already received 139 percent of its funding goal. Previously, Minna Life officials successfully used the crowdfunding site to back their Limon massager.

ADVERTISEMENT


The first tools for evaluating pelvic floor muscle strength were invented in the late 1940s using an air pressure balloon and a tire gauge. Sadly, Minna Life reps said, the technology used has not progressed much since. However, the landscape is changing quickly. Personal health tracking tools like Fitbit or Jawbone UP have exploded in popularity by putting knowledge about the body directly into users' hands. Likewise, improving technology has now made it possible to create a much better pelvic floor muscle exercise system.

The Minna Life kGoal measures the force exerted by squeezing your pelvic floor muscles and can communicate that information back to you via a phone and/or the device itself. Using the device and corresponding app is like having a personalized gym, physical therapist, and tracking system by your side whenever you want.

According to the Kickstarter campaign page, kGoal has a number of revolutionary features that make it a groundbreaking advance in pelvic floor health. In particular, kGoal gives you the ability to:

Get real time biofeedback: Pelvic floor muscles are often controlled subconsciously, and studies have shown that more than 30 percent of women are not able to correctly contract their pelvic floor muscles without direct feedback (instead, they will often flex their abs, glutes, or inner thighs). kGoal's ability to provide real time feedback via touch, sight and sound can help you make sure you're doing the exercises correctly.

Guide your workout: Our team of expert physical therapists and doctors has helped us develop algorithms to suggest exercise plans that are tailored to you and based on your current capabilities.

Track your performance: kGoal can measure and keep track of everything from muscle strength to endurance to which exercises you did and when you did them. Being able to look at how your body changes over time can help you (and your doctor or therapist) better understand your body and optimize your health.

Be comfortable: Since kGoal's squeezable pillow is squishy and has a vent to adjust the air pressure, you can tailor the fit to your body's unique anatomy, even as it changes over time.

Make exercise fun: Let's face it ... exercise can be boring. A smart device can make it way more interesting, and we're even working on games and other interactions to make pelvic floor exercise more engaging. We know that motivation can be a huge challenge with exercise, and it was vital for us to create an experience that doesn't feel like a chore.

The kGoal is a two-part system: The kGoal device and the kGoal app. The main section of kGoal is a squeezable pillow that is inserted into the vagina. Since it's squishy, it conforms to a wide variety of anatomies, and you can use the vent to let air in or out and further optimize the fit. Once in place, the pillow can measure squeezing of your pelvic floor muscles, and there is also a motor for providing real time vibrational biofeedback.

The arm stays outside the body and holds kGoal in place. It is also the basic interface, with the button, status light, and charging plug. In addition, it has a second vibrational feedback motor that can be used together with or instead of the motor in the pillow.

The other key element of the system is the app. It communicates with and can control kGoal wirelessly and it's also where you can find your exercise history and suggested workouts. However, if you don't have your phone handy, don't worry—many of kGoal's features are available without having the app connected.

New XXX Site Explores the Lives of Mormon Sister Missionaries

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

Former BYU student Brooke Hunter offers 'shocking' footage of 'Mormon girls' having sex at MormonGirlz.com

New XXX Site Explores the Lives of Mormon Sister Missionaries

Posted Jul 08th, 2014 09:40 AM

CYBERSPACE—"Mormon girls are beautiful, young, polite, and—as new footage reveals—really raunchy," reads the press release from former Brigham Young University student Brooke Hunter. And while we're less than sure that the young gals on the MormonGirlz.com website are (or were) truly Mormon missionaries, or that the footage is in fact "leaked," we present Brooke's press release in its entirety, for readers to make of it what they will:

ADVERTISEMENT


When a Mormon girl goes on a mission, she’s sent far from home and teamed up with another young girl, her companion. They lead very disciplined lives, waking early every day to go door-to-door and find converts for the church. But behind closed doors, these Mormon girls are anything but innocent. The trove of new footage shows them masturbating, fingering each other, eating pussy, and even fucking each other with strap-ons.

Nothing is sacred once the missionaries’ hormones get the best of them. In the leaked videos, the girls strip down to their sacred garments, underwear with ritual meaning that only Mormons are supposed to see, and then grope their breasts and pussies before getting naked and getting off. In one video, the secret Mormon temple ceremonies are revealed—the sisters “wash and anoint” each other before giving in to temptation and having sex inside the House of the Lord.

These missionaries are commanded to spend all of their time together, and it’s no surprise that the intimacy this creates leads the sisters time and again to sex. The large number of videos indicates that this is not just a few rogue sisters, but a widespread problem within the Mormon church.

See a trailer about MormonGirlz here.

How the Mormon church will react to the leaked footage is anyone’s guess. Certainly, the individual missionaries, if identified, will be excommunicated. But how will the church protect its public image in the face of these videos of innocent sister missionaries engaging in raunchy sex?

The release of the videos is particularly bad timing for the church, which has suffered recently from negative press surrounding its sexist policies and beliefs, especially the exclusion of women from church leadership. A group of Mormons calling themselves Ordain Women has staged a series of protests this year, and the church has responded by excommunicating the organization’s founder. The disclosure of sister missionaries engaging in explicit sexual activity is sure to rock the faith to its core.

The founder of MormonGirlz (a Mormon lesbian herself) is an enthusiastic supporter of the latest wave of Mormon feminism. Her mission is to document the sexual liberation of Mormon women and acknowledge the desires and fantasies that Mormon women are often too ashamed to admit. She hopes that MormonGirlz (and the affiliated MormonBoyz) will open a public conversation about sexual taboos and restrictions within Mormon culture. MormonGirlz hopes that images and videos of Mormon girls enjoying various kinds of sex will break some of these taboos and model a healthier attitude toward pleasure. MormonGirlz is on a mission to “perfect the saints”—and to get them off, too.

And non-Mormons who fetishize innocent young Mormon girls will find more than just porn on the site (though they’ll find plenty of that)—they’ll also enter the world of Mormonism, seeing and hearing things usually reserved for faithful members. In addition to a blog dedicated to the latest news about the church and updates about our sexy sister missionaries, they’ll find a discussion board where they can share stories of their own about encounters with Mormons or talk about the girls on the site. They’ll also be exposed to carefully-guarded Mormon secrets, like the secret underwear these girls wear and the secret ceremonies that Mormons perform in the temple.

Mormon girls are raised to believe that they must remain chaste until marriage. Sex is only to be enjoyed between a husband and wife. Sexual purity is demanded of every girl who goes on a mission. But at 19 years old, these girls are very sexual. They fight their instincts and desires daily. And sometimes those desires get the upper hand.

See the footage as it leaks exclusively at MormonGirlz.com, follow the MormonGirlz on Twitter and Tumbler, and check out Brooke's Facebook page.
