Vivid’s ‘Myla Sinanaj: The Anti-Kim’ Debuts

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

LOS ANGELESMyla Sinanaj: The Anti-Kim XXX, the latest celebrity sex tape from Vivid Entertainment, is now available for viewing online at Vivid.com as well as on Vivid TV. The DVD of the movie hits stores Nov. 19.

Titular star Sinanaj has gained a reputation among Hollywood observers of being obsessed with looking like Kim Kardashian. Not only is there a strong resemblance between the two, but Sinanaj dated Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries, and now Vivid distributes movies starring both women.

Sinanaj has conceded that she and Kardashian do share similar large backsides. “I don’t know, she’s Armenian, I’m Albanian,” Sinanaj said. “I guess women from our countries just come with them.”

In The Anti-Kim XXX, viewers will get a last look at Sinanaj's body in its curvaceous form at the time of shooting, as she underwent major plastic surgery afterward. “I’m in love with the body that Kim Kardashian had prior to her pregnancy, especially her lips and stomach," Sinanaj explained. "The rest of the world is apparently obsessed with it as well, since they have all felt the need to call me the Fat Kim K.”

Sexcellent Ideas: “Dr. Chauntelle” on Sex Toy Trends

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

Posted Oct 23rd, 2013 07:30 AM

The story below is taken from the October 2013 issue of AVN magazine, where we asked 10 sexperts to talk about future trends that they would like to see in the pleasure product industry. Each shared some interesting thoughts. Pictured here: Chauntelle Anne Tibbals.

Chauntelle Anne Tibbals
Ph.D., sociologist; ChauntelleTibbals.com

From what I can tell, it seems like there’s an ever-developing number of great (and not so great) toys out there, all working toward meeting an array of interests and needs—fantastic!

ADVERTISEMENT


Coming from a sociological perspective though, what I would like to see is more clarity and disclosure in sex toy advertising, marketing, and manufacturing. For example, I recently learned that a toy can be up to 10 percent phthalates and still claim to be “phthalate-free.” And what’s a phthalate anyway? Why should consumers care about them? Beyond industry experts (and folks who work with plastics), I don’t think this is common knowledge … and yet, the use of adult novelties is becoming more and more commonplace every day, as is the mainstreaming of sex toys.

If I had one wish, there would be a clear, accurate, and reputable source to explain sex toy basics to consumers—a sort of encyclopedia, something accessible enough for newcomers and informed enough for connoisseurs. Perhaps a collaborative, not-for-profit effort from sex educators and toy manufacturers. … That would be amazing!

Check back on AVN.com tomorrow for the final commenter, Jamye Waxman.

Porn Parody Writer Does Reddit AMA

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

Porn Parody Writer Does Reddit AMA

LOS ANGELES—A writer who goes by the name rexy_unchained—aka Rex Ridgewood—took to reddit earlier today for an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session during which he talked about his career writing porn parodies for porn.com. A creative writing major, rexy was unabashed about being a porn fan and also about his aspirations in the industry, saying at one point, "I take my job seriously. I want to be the Quentin Tarantino of Porn. My mission is to make and write real movies that mimic t.v production values and put sex in there."

ADVERTISEMENT


Expounding on that thought, he added, "Even HBO or Showtime, with their simulated sex, can't do what I want to accomplish. I'm a renegade with bloodlust on my mind. I want to turn the tide of boring, gonzo porn into true erotica. I want to bring back the element that porn is fantasy and not just some color-by-the-numbers chore you have to half-heartedly try to enjoy."

Regarding gonzo porn versus scripted porn and why he loves what he does, he said, "I'm an avid porn watcher like most dudes and I know that whenever I see gonzo porn (porn with little to no story) i find that i don't usually get turned on as much or at all, because there's no fantasy for me to delve and get in 'lost' in. So, when they brought me on, my emphasis, my whole drive was to write porn parodies that had that winning combination of humor, story and hardcore fucking."

About the fucking, however, he said that not only does he not bother writing sex scenes—"I basically write the entire script and when it comes to the inevitable sex sequence, i just leave it blank and write 'Fucking ensues now'"—but when asked, he owned up that he doesn't even get to meet the porn stars in his movies, but added that it was a good thing.

"Fortunately, no. I don't get to meet the talent. I'd eat a bullet if I had to write scripts AND go through the sketchy process of booking flaky porn stars, dealing with agencies, fees, forms, scheduling locations, and emergencies like a guy popping too early and getting a stunt cock in last minute, which has happened. I do more damage from behind my monitor. But never say never."

That said, his favorite porn stars include "Alexis Grace, Darla Crane (I've a bit of a MILF fetish), Jennifer White (because she's hot and kinda resembles Megan Fox), Caprice, Faye Reagan, Hayden Winters, Zoey Nixon, Proxy Paige, April O Neil, Tia Tanaka, Stevie Shae, Bailey Blue."

Ridgewood's porn parody writing credits include Riding Little Red, Home Alone?, My Slutty Valentine! and the just released American Whore Story.

Dates, Deadlines Set for 2014 Feminist Porn Awards, Conference

Posted Oct 22nd, 2013 01:00 PM

TORONTOGood for Her, Tristan Taormino and The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies have announced the dates and submission deadlines for The 2014 Feminist Porn Awards and The 2nd Annual Feminist Porn Conference.

The 9th Annual Feminist Porn Awards, which will be held April 3-4, 2014 in Toronto, include a screening of nominated films with directors, producers, and performers in attendance as well as the Feminist Porn Awards Gala at the Capitol Theatre. The Awards have been celebrating diverse sexuality, desire and ethically produced porn since 2006. They offer audiences an alternative to mainstream porn and access to provocative sexy films that are sometimes not available to a wider audience.

“We’re very excited about receiving this year’s submissions,” said Carlyle Jansen, founder of Good for Her and The Feminist Porn Awards. "Every year we have an even more diverse group of films by people of all sexes, genders, bodies and desires to share with our growing audience. We look forward to seeing what expanded feminist expressions of porn look like on screen, and seeing more locally produced films." The deadline for submissions to the Feminist Porn Awards is January 17, 2014. 

The 2nd Annual Feminist Porn Conference will take place April 5-6, 2014, at the University of Toronto. The deadline to submit presentation proposals is December 23, 2013. The Feminist Porn Conference brings together academics, students, cultural critics, sex workers, activists, fans, performers, directors, and producers to explore the intersections between feminism and pornography as well as feminist porn as a genre, industry, and movement. The conference includes sessions devoted to both academic and non-academic presentations, film screenings, akeynote talk, and networking time. In addition, this year there will be a business track featuring workshops on production and filmmaking, legal issues, marketing and branding, social media, affiliate programs, and web-based technologies.

“I’m thrilled to return to the University of Toronto for the conference. Last year’s event exceeded all my expectations, and I look forward to expanding to two days of programming this year,” said Taormino, founder and producer of The Feminist Porn Conference. “Plus, with generous support from The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, we were able to move to a fully accessible building on campus.”

Homegrown Video Under New Management

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

Head of Operations and COO Josh Marcum plans to regroup, refocus and return the venerable amateur content provider to its original branding.

Homegrown Video Under New Management

Posted Oct 22nd, 2013 11:30 AM

LOS ANGELES—Homegrown Video has announced that it is under new management for all future operations. In a statement issued Tuesday, the company said that with the hiring of Josh Marcum as its new Head of Operations and COO, "Homegrown Video refocuses its efforts to return to its original brand as the birthplace of amateur adult entertainment and the quintessential brand for those looking to share their sex lives on camera."

Marcum added, “Every Homegrown Video employee learns the company history and mission before they even start Day 1. Over the past few years, we have focused on maintaining our mission statement and directed our efforts to stay true to amateur as it should be. We have moved away from our pro-am releases to come back to center, authentic amateur content, in order to reestablish and elevate our core values.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Under the revised management, a large portion of Homegrown’s original setup will stay the same. Amateur couples seeking to share their sexual adventures and view others celebrating their sexuality will continue to be able to do so through Homegrown DVDs as well as HomegrownVideo.com. Submissions of videos will also continue through HomegrownSubmittals.com.

The updates under Marcum include the adoption of new media methodology; amateur couples who provide content to Homegrown, as well as voyeur members, will now be allowed to participate in the site’s updates via comments and replies. By allowing members to critique each other’s videos via online conversation, Homegrown intends to create a real-time community of true believers who together will create higher quality content with each submission.

“Homegrown is different from any other porn site out there,” said Marcum. “The scenes are real and are made by real couples. Farrell [Timlake; Homegrown Video founder] and Spike [Goldberg; Homegrown Video CEO] now get into the chat rooms regularly to guide content creators and answer questions. Even Lani [Timlake’s wife] is involved with the chat room and social media action. Lani and Farrell also offer instructional videos from camera techniques to the use of specific sex toys. It’s become very much a family affair.

“HomegrownVideo.com has now become a very creatively interesting and extremely sexually positive setup,” continued Marcum. “By allowing content creators and consumers to work together, creators are continuously encouraged to improve the kinds of scenes they submit to us. Newbie content creators sometimes submit scenes where they’re awkward and nervous; through public encouragement, we’ve seen those scenes become better and better over time. Viewers tell female amateurs who may think their blowjob skills are not ‘porn-star-quality’ how good and sexy they really are. We then see scenes with longer blowjob segments from those women. It’s a fantastic process and works every time.”

Homegrown Video’s expertise in the amateur porn market is manifest in its 11 AVN Awards and 2 XBIZ Awards for Best Amateur Release, Best Amateur Series and Niche Studio of the Year. In 2009, owner Farrell Timlake (aka Tim Lake) was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame.

In addition to its website partnerships, Homegrown Video releases its movies on DVD through Pulse Distribution. Retailers, e-tailers and distributors may contact Pulse’s Robert Plarski at rplarski@pulsedistribution.com or (818) 435-1605 to place an order.

Fresh Face: Interview With Belle Noire

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

Interview With Belle Noire

Posted Oct 22nd, 2013 08:15 AM by Buzz Killington

This article originally ran in the September 2013 issue of AVN.

The Basics

Hometown: Oklahoma City, Okla.
Height: 5-foot-4
Measurements: 33-26-34C
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown

How did you get into this crazy business?

I started out modeling lingerie because a bunch of my friends were photographers and they needed a sensual model—I'm a sensual person—so I was seen on ModelMayhem.com by Ken Marcus and started doing bondage stuff. So bondage is what really got me into porn. I met so many porn chicks who were cute and glamorous so I just started doing porn. That's really just how it happened. I also worked at porn shops when I was 18. I always loved porn, parodies especially.

ADVERTISEMENT


Have you always been sexual?

Pretty much. I've been a burlesque dancer and pin-up model too. I was a Suicide Girl when I was younger. I've always loved being naked.

You have this vintage, burlesque-y vibe. I'm sure you hear that a lot.

I do. I just love that era. I guess you could say that I'm an old soul. I'm trying to be a little more mainstream for porn. I like the vintage look for sure, though. It's totally me.

When did you shoot your first actual porn video?

It was for Dungeon Corp, which was the first time I was penetrated on camera. I was really nervous because I just wanted to do stills at first, but being in theater before and in front of the camera, once I got on set I was like 'Oh my God! Lights and cameras! I'm gonna be a star!' [Laughs]. My first mainstream porno, I guess you could say, was for Dare Dorm.

What attracted you to the industry?

Well, I was going to college, and I was going to makeup and hair school, but I just loved being in front of the camera. I've always been overly sexual. Every job I've ever had I've been fired for being flirty or sexually inappropriate. I think I needed porn. It feels natural.

So I'm guessing this wasn't such a surprise for friends and family.

No, not at all. Everyone was so supportive. I haven't had one hater yet. My Dad and I don't really talk about it, though, and my Mom is getting to be more supportive because she sees porn is making me more grounded.

What's your favorite thing about the business?

That I can be myself completely. Any weirdness that I have I know will be accepted. Everyone is open sexually. I vibe so much better with the girls in porn too.

What was it like working in the porn shops?

Oh those were my favorite jobs ever. I never got fired from those places. I worked at Adam & Eve for a bit and then I worked at a much seedier place that had video arcades, so a lot of gay guys would come in there, older men—it was so much fun. Just being around porn was great. And I really liked giving advice to people on what to watch, what sex toys they'd like. It was almost like training for what I'm doing now. I loved helping people get off. I had such a knack for it.

Well, you're still helping people get off, just on another level now.

When I look in the camera I see an audience of fans jacking off to me. I want them to want me. I want them to know that I'm here for you. I could have been an escort, but I don't want to be in the shadows. I want everyone to see what I'm doing.

What were you like growing up?

I was always pretty girly, but I hung out with a lot of guys because I was pretty chill. I was very creative and took a lot of arts classes. I majored in history and minored in English so I'm kind of a nerd. I went to a Christian school.

If someone wanted to see the best of Belle Noire, what should they watch?

Recently I just did a scene for Naughty America with Johnny Castle. We clicked really well on camera. I also did a scene with Evan Stone for Hustler and that was so good. There's a new one coming out for Smash Pictures, also with Johnny Castle, and it's a shower scene. It was romantic and sensual. I like doing MILF scenes too. I did one [for Filly Films] with Tanya Tate and Veronica Avluv. It was a fantasy of mine.

What do you enjoying doing off set?

I really like going to Korean spas to relax; I'm a really chill person. Shopping, of course, flea markets, garage sales, even Goodwill.

Did you have concerns coming into the business?

Yeah, I was concerned that no one was going to want to shoot me because I don't have a typical look, and I did hear that from my agents; I guess at first they weren't too impressed with me. After I started shooting and getting positive feedback from producers they softened a bit.

Gay Porn Star Rejects Plea Deal After Trespassing at Lucas Studios

Gay Porn Star Rejects Plea Deal After Trespassing at Lucas Studios

NEW YORK—Vito Gallo, a bearded and buff former sailor who last year became a Lucas Entertainment exclusive, was arrested Sept. 12 after he "angrily barged into the Hell’s Kitchen studio of adult film mogul Michael Lucas," the New York Post reported Monday, the same day Gallo "rejected a no jail plea deal... in Manhattan Criminal Court which would have let him cop to disorderly conduct if he attended anger management classes."

ADVERTISEMENT


Gallo was reportedly upset because he felt he was not being given enough work, and took matters into his own hands. "Although he’s not charged with assault," reported the Post, "video footage appears to show the tall porn actor push and strike Lucas in the neck and shoulder as the skin flick titan tries to call cops."

According to Lucas, "He just stormed into our offices and started beating people up. Several people locked themselves into the editing suite. You had to see his eyes, the veins bulging on his forehead. It was scary.”

The Post also seemed to think the "hot-pink T-shirt" Gallo was wearing when he was arrested was also scary, or at least could have been problematic for the tall, muscular ex-Navy man, and asked him about it Monday as he was leaving the courthouse.

“Wearing pink to jail isn’t ideal,” Gallo replied. “I got a lot of looks.”

As for his invasion of Lucas, it seems as if all may end well. The Russian-born studio head appears ready to forgive and forget as long as some conditions are met. "We’d love him to return if he goes through very serious anger management and sees a shrink.”

Regarding the amount of work Gallo gets, however, Lucas was steadfast that it is sufficient. "We were using him all the time,” he insisted. “He’s very popular, he’s very good looking and he’s one of my top four performers."

According to the Post, "The 28-year-old [Gallo] makes approximately $1500 per film and is a top model at the multimillion-dollar agency, where last year he signed an exclusive three year contract.

AHF, Seeking to Remain in Vivid Lawsuit, Files Answer Brief

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

AHF, Seeking to Remain in Vivid Lawsuit, Files Answer Brief

PASADENA, Calif.—Less than a week after Vivid filed its brief with the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals seeking, in part, to remove AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and its employees and supporters from their role as Intervenors in Vivid's Measure B lawsuit, AHF filed a brief in answer to Vivid's objections, which brief includes attempts to argue the merits of Vivid's appeal even as AHF's role in the case moves to even shakier ground.

Indeed, the first six pages of AHF's brief, which recaps AHF's reasons for seeking to have Measure B passed into law and includes a skewed perspective on performers' exposure to HIV and STDs while filming adult movies, are clearly intended to prejudice the Ninth Circuit panel into allowing AHF to remain in the case by suggesting that if it isn't allowed to stay, STDs will run rampant in Los Angeles County.

ADVERTISEMENT


"Heeding Dr. Fielding’s findings and conclusions regarding the adverse public health impact of adult film production, concerned citizens and organizations in Los Angeles sought to persuade County government to take effective action to protect the public health by requiring the use of condoms when filming scenes of actual sexual intercourse," AHF's brief claims. "The County bureaucracy, however, was unwilling to take action. The advocates then sought to compel County action via petition to State court for a writ of mandate, arguing that under California Health and Safety Code Sections 120175 and 120575, the County had a ministerial duty to take further steps to protect the public health. The advocates were unsuccessful in that effort."

The "concerned citizens and organizations in Los Angeles" were, of course, AHF and its employees and supporters, as well as a couple of other organizations like UCLA's AHF-affiliated Reproductive Health Interest Group, the Centers for Disease Control and Beyond AIDS that, at AHF's invitation, attended hearings held over a two-year period by CalOSHA on AHF's petition to change the California Health Code to require condom use in adult film production. It was the alleged inaction by both CalOSHA and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health that allegedly inspired AHF to form a petition drive to get Measure B on the November, 2012 ballot.

AHF's brief then recounts the proceedings thus far in front of U.S. District Judge Dean D. Pregerson—and includes one interesting change: No longer do AHF and its co-Intervenors describe themselves as "Intervenors"; they now use the word "proponents," a term that is supposedly used "[p]ursuant to California law," since it was solely AHF and its "Campaign Committee Yes on B" that sought to bring Measure B to the ballot in the first place. But a "proponent" is not a recognized party to a legal case.

Once AHF gets around to its actual arguments, though, they turn out to be, for the most part, a direct attack on the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Hollingsworth v. Perry, which stated that then-plaintiff Dennis Hollingsworth had no standing—that is, no "concrete and particularlized injury"—with which to defend California's Prop 8, which forbade same-sex marriage in the state.

"Standing must be established by one of the parties invoking the federal court’s jurisdiction to remedy that party’s injury," AHF's brief claims. "Once a party invoking the court’s jurisdiction establishes its standing, the court has been presented with a justiciable case or controversy that it has an obligation to resolve. Consequently, there is no need or requirement for any other party to demonstrate standing for that case or controversy." [Emphasis in original]

However, that's not the way the Supreme Court sees it. As Vivid's attorneys noted in their reply brief filed last week, "Putative Intervenors’ Response is undermined entirely by Hollingsworth’s simple command that 'a litigant' must show, first and foremost, that he is affected by a matter in a 'personal and individual way,' and possesses a '"direct stake" in the outcome' of a case in order to participate as a party. The Court in Hollingsworth did not say a 'plaintiff' or an 'appellant' must satisfy Article III, but rather, that a 'litigant' must do so. This nullifies AHF’s effort to draw a negative inference that Hollingsworth does not apply to appellees."

Moreover, AHF argues that it should be allowed to remain as a party in the case specifically because it has no standing!

"Vivid argues that defendants and appellees must demonstrate that they have standing, just as plaintiffs and appellants do," AHF's brief argues. "But what can that mean? Standing is 'a "personal injury fairly traceable to the defendant's allegedly unlawful conduct and likely to be redressed by the requested relief."' Defendants qua defendants do not have injuries—they are alleged to have caused them. That is why defendants are not required to demonstrate that they have standing."

Indeed; one section of their brief is entitled, "Intervention Was Required Because There Is No Other Party To Defend The Constitutionality Of Voter Passed Measure B"

So: AHF admits that it has no standing to bring ("invoke") a case involving Measure B because it has not and will not suffer any injury if Measure B is overturned, but that it should be allowed to continue in the litigation because, as a "Defendant-Intervenor," it is alleged to have "caused" the injuries Vivid is alleging in the suit! But that brings us right back again to Hollingsworth, because clearly, AHF and its employees and supporters did not directly cause the injuries claimed by Vivid; they simply got the law that did the damage passed by the LA County electorate... and therefore even by that argument, AHF has no place in the case under Hollingsworth because it's not AHF's job to speak for the electorate; that's the job, as advocates for the law, of the county—and if the county feels, as it obviously does, that Measure B is unconstitutional and/or an unnecessary drain on county resources, and for those reasons declines to defend the law, AHF has no standing to step in and be the (claimed) "voice of the people." That's exactly the position Dennis Hollingsworth claimed to have, and which the Supreme Court struck down!

Or as Vivid's attorneys pointed out in their prior brief: "The ramifications of this sweeping view are stupefying. Under that rule, so long as, e.g., a plaintiff has standing to challenge a statute, regulation, ordinance, or other law—which will always be the case as a matter of course, for a court to have jurisdiction—any member of the public who stands to benefit from the law’s operation may also enter the case as a party under F.R.C.P. [Federal Rules of Civil Procedure] 24. But, of course, that is not the law, and were there previously any question, Hollingsworth has put it to rest."

Legally speaking, that's AHF: "any member of the public."

Other arguments presented by AHF in its brief include the argument that mandating condoms is constitutional and not a First Amendment issue, and that the court could rewrite the law to remove troublesome language (like Measure B's reliance of Section 5193 of the Health Code).

As to that first issue, AHF invokes the Supreme Court's decision in Renton v. Playtime Theatres to claim that condoms (and the other required "barrier protections") are simply some sort of "time, place and manner" restrictions on adult movies, even though movies with condoms have significantly lower sales rates than those without. But for AHF, condoms are just "secondary effects" that only affect the "manner" of an adult movie, much in the way Barnes v. Glen Theatre only affected the "manner" of topless dancers by requiring them to wear pasties and g-strings. (Hmmm... wonder what those dancers' tips are today?) In making this argument, AHF seeks to place mandatory condoms on the same continuum that prohibited nude dancing altogether in some states, and required dancers to stay six feet away from patrons in others.

AHF further seeks to legitimize Measure B by claiming that it is necessary to protect the public from becoming infected with STDs by performers, and claims that a 2009 County Public Health report supports that. However, the adult industry had its own analysis made of that report, by Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer of Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health and School of Medicine, and his findings indicate that the county had no basis for the conclusions in its report.

Finally, AHF argues that if there are problems with Measure B, they could be fixed by allowing the courts to strike certain language from the bill, much as Judge Pregerson, in his last Order in the case, kept the condom mandate intact but struck down the county's Measure B-granted ability to pull shooting permits without a court hearing. However, the Supreme Court has ruled several times, including in U.S. v. Stevens, the dog-fight videos case, that the courts may not rewrite legislation under the guise of simply pruning it, because it's Congress's job (or in something analogous to the Measure B case, the job of the county supervisors) to write laws, and the courts must assume that the lawmakers meant what they said in the laws that they pass. And in the opinion of several adult industry attorneys, Measure B is so poorly written that even Judge Pregerson's disavowal of some of its more oppressive clauses can't save the overall bill from being found unconstitutional—even if, as AHF claims, voters would have passed a stripped-down bill just as readily as they passed Measure B.

At this juncture, the Ninth Circuit has heard the arguments from both Vivid and AHF, and though there is no set time within which it must render its decision, check back periodically with AVN.com for more analysis of this vitally important legal proceeding.

AHF's Answer Brief can be found here.

Colin Farrell: I Was Offered $5M for My Sex Tape

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

I Was Offered $5M for My Sex Tape

LOS ANGELES—Actor Colin Farrell was on a late-night Irish talk show the other day when the discussion veered into sex tape territory. It was about 100 years ago in sex tape years, but some people may remember that in 2005, the Irish actor was involved in ultimately successful litigation to keep off the market a 15-minute sex tape he'd shot in 2003 with former Playboy Playmate Nicole Narain. What is not widely known is how much Farrell was offered for the tape.

According to the actor, a cool $5 million was dangled before him. Though he did not mention the company that made the offer, Phoenix-based Internet Commerce Group (ICG) was the entity sued by Farrell at the time to keep the footage off the market. Farrell and Narain were also in litigation over the tape, but settled their differences in 2006.

"Not only did Colin say no to the cash," reported Scoopla. 'He also filed an injunction to stop people seeing it!"

Flirting with a member of the audience during this segment of the interview, Farrell managed to explain why he didn't take the cash. "It would have been in hotel rooms," he said. "Imagine my mother checking into the Holiday Inn. ‘Oohh, a film of Colin’s I haven’t seen.' Or if she said, ‘He reminds me of his dad!'"

That imaginary scenario put a quick end to the sex tape talk.

Of more importance, the 37-year-old Irishman also said he's turned his life around after a youth spent abusing alcohol and drugs, and said he finally took sobriety seriously after making 2006's Miami Vice, which he said he couldn’t remember making following production.

Sugar Daddy Site Targets Orlando Businessmen

Sugar Daddy Site Targets Orlando Businessmen

ORLANDO, Florida—The news item in the Orlando Sentinel is about the fact that Charlie Sheen's porn star ex Bree Olson graces an Orlando billboard that promotes sugar daddy website ArrangementFinders.com with this tagline: "Our men give REAL pearl necklaces."

Adds reporter Adrienne Cutway for the paper, "If you don't get the innuendo, I'm not going to be the one to explain it."

Neither will we. But we thought the filler for the story, about how Orlando is the perfect hunting ground for ArrangementFinders, was far more interesting than the Sheen angle. We already knew that the Orlando area is somewhat affluent, but we had no idea it was such a hot spot for sugar daddy dating.

In fact, according to ArrangementFinder chief marketing officer A.J. Perkins, Orlando is an ideal place to advertise for such liaisons. "The entertainment capital of the east coast is filled with beautiful and aspirational young women who make up our target demographic," he said in a press release. "With all the successful business men coming and going through Orlando on a daily basis, we expect our site to shoot through the roof with Floridian sugar daddies."

Olson, whose role as a celebrity houseguest was one of 2011's top stories, also appears on billboards in several other cities, and not only to attract sugar daddies. In Los Angeles, as AVN has reported, ArrangementFinders has placed billboards near UCLA in order to entice co-eds to sign up for the service.

For Orlando's mega-successful men, Bree's latest ad for the site can be found on North Goldenrod Road.

Sensuva Debuts Erosense Personal Moisturizers

Sensuva Debuts Erosense Personal Moisturizers

Posted Oct 21st, 2013 12:51 PM

LOS ANGELES—Sensuva has announced the launch of a new line of personal moisturizers, Erosense.

Erosense has products that fit each type of personal moisturizer: Erosense Aqua is a natural water-based product, Erosense Sync is a hybrid formula and Erosense Luxe is a premium silicone moisturizer.

“We used a combination of high-quality, natural, organic, and food-grade ingredients that are gentle and healthy for the body,” Sensuva Branding and Marketing Director Lisa Mazurek said. “We know that there are a lot of lubricants on the market, and we have no plans to become a lubricant company, but we think offering more healthy choices is extremely important as consumer expectations for higher quality body care products continually increase. Expanding our line with Erosense seemed logical because of our company’s focus on a person’s entire sexual experience and well-being.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Also, after launching ON Silicone Personal Moisturizer earlier this year, they encountered many requests for these classic styles.

The entire Erosense line was created in-house at Sensuva’s own lab in California, and the goal they achieved was to offer a line of the healthiest personal moisturizers stores have carried. The line is pH balanced for women, and doesn’t contain menthol, glycerin or any parabens.

Launched earlier this year, ON Silicone Personal Moisturizer is a premium silicone lubricant that included some of the essence of ON Arousal.

“We did that because ON Arousal users were using lubricant with our product and wanted the powerful effects to stay the same,” Mazurek said.

Sometimes when people use ON Arousal with water-based lubricants, the effects feel stronger, and when they use silicone lubricants the effects of ON Arousal may diminish somewhat, she noted. Putting a small amount of ON Arousal in there extends the life and maintains the sensation of ON Arousal.

“I believe that Erosense Sync, our hybrid formula, is hands-down the best one on the market,” Mazurek said. “It has an aloe vera juice base and made with healthy, food-grade ingredients. It has a fresh scent and is more pleasant to the pallet than any other hybrid I’ve seen.

“We also used more silicone than most other hybrids (around 15 percent) so it lasts longer and feels even extremely silky,” she continued. “I am incredibly proud to be offering this formula, it is amazing.“

Erosense Aqua, the natural water-based formula also has a fresh scent and slightly detectible sweet taste. It feels the closest to someone’s own natural lubrication. The aloe vera-based ingredient list is simple, clean, and the perfect choice for anyone with sensitivities.

Erosense Luxe, the premium silicone formula, is a blend of three premium silicones. The consistency is thin enough to feel your partner, but the glide lasts for an extended amount of time.

Stylishly packaged, Sensuva is offering the three Erosense formulas in a 4.2-ounce bottles. Signage and plenty of educational information is available for retailers.

Sensuva offers branded counter displays, testers and matching merchandising sales tools to all retailers and distributors. Mazurek also is happy to provide product education and sales tips to Sensuva’s clientele.

For product details and information, contact Mazurek at lisa@sensuva.com or call (425) 880-6006. To learn more about Sensuva and its arousal line, visit www.sensuva.com.

Kink.com’s Acworth Issues Video Response to British Porn Ban

Kink.com’s Acworth Issues Video Response to British Porn Ban

Posted Oct 21st, 2013 12:00 PM

CYBERSPACE—Kink.com founder Peter Acworth has fired back at British Prime Minister David Cameron for his proposed ban on internet pornography in a video message that went live on BehindKink.com this weekend. Cameron has proposed that adult sites be blocked by default, and that certain types of porn — including BDSM porn — be made illegal.

In the video, Acworth, a British national, cites multiple reasons the Cameron plan is flawed. One of his key points is that the effective ban on explicit images is an effective ban on sexual education:

ADVERTISEMENT


“How does one determine where pornography stops and educational material starts," argues Acworth in the video. "Strikes me as extremely problematic laws put in place. So you’re telling me if I go to a library in England, I’m not going to be able to look at sex educational websites because they will potentially be filtered, that seems to me to be denying the British people of information that they need to have.”

Acworth also cites research that counters the claims of anti-porn activists that internet porn leads to greater sex crimes. The study found that rape in the United States has declined 85 percent in the years since the dawn of the internet:

“If it were true to say that pornography caused heinous crimes, one would think heinous crimes would have skyrocketed in direct proportion," he says. "That is not the case. During this period with the proliferation of pornography on the internet, the incidents of rape, heinous crimes such as rape, has actually plummeted - gone down enormously during that same period. And so if anything, there is a correlation in the other direction, so the basis for this ridiculous war on pornography is evidence which is fundamentally flawed, in my opinion.

This isn’t the first time Acworth has tried to reach out to Cameron. In July, the CEO penned an open letter to the UK Prime Minister, both on his blog and Behind Kink, Kink.com’s in-house news site.

The video can be viewed in its entirety here.

To date, there has been no response by Prime Minister David Cameron.

Center for Sex & Culture Kicks Off First Kickstarter Campaign

Center for Sex & Culture Kicks Off First Kickstarter Campaign

Posted Oct 21st, 2013 11:20 AM

SAN FRANCISCO—The Center for Sex & Culture has launched its first-ever Kickstarter campaign, by which it seeks to publish an exhibition catalog of some of the most notable posters from the Buzz Bense collection. Buzz was one of the founders of safer sex club Eros, and worked with CSC founders Drs. Robert Morgan Lawrence and Carol Queen on the Coalition for Healthy Sex. He amassed one of the most significant safer sex and HIV/AIDS poster collections, and donated these materials to CSC last year. As a group, they are especially stunning -- graphically, but also historically. Thirty years out from the beginning of the epidemic that changed --and ended-- so many lives, CSC wants to add this collection to the available literature, show off some of these amazing posters, supplement the information about the epidemic, and launch CSC's role in getting some of its more extraordinary materials out into the world. 

ADVERTISEMENT


The campaign link, which includes more detailed information and poster images, is here.

The campaign ends on November 5 at 6:06pm EST.

The Buzz Bense Collection of HIV/AIDS and Safe(r) Sex Posters will be published as an exhibition catalog to accompany the CSC showing of the posters from November though 31st January 2014. CSC's exhibition displaying nearly 100 of these safer sex posters opens on November 7 at 7 pm.

Many of us remember vividly the period in the 1980s and 90s when campaigns promoting safer sex practices developed, looking back on the visual materials from these campaigns has been both a moving experience of memory and an exciting new perspective of the work many of us did in that time. As these posters and other materials begin to pass in to something more like history than recent memory, we get to see them again. Thankfully, we can now see a little more of their artistry rather than only seeing the urgency that created their message.

These materials are of both cultural and artistic significance. They were often created by advertising and illustration professionals who were suddenly free to apply their best and most innovative ideas that may have been constrained by mainstream business. With the lives and health of their community at stake, and often their own, these artists brought all of their skill to bear on efforts to save lives.

The catalog will contain images of these collected materials, primarily posters, including safer sex campaigns from North America, Europe, and Oceania. We will also include an art historical essay by Alex Fialho as well as Alex's interview of Buzz Bense about the collection he accumulated, plus a foreward by CSC director Dr. Carol Queen.

CSC seeks support in producing this important volume of materials, both for the preservation of history and to communicate to the world more broadly the great power of the work so many did in desperate times. Contributions are critical to our success.

"We are halfway to our goal for our Safe(r) Sex Poster Catalog," said Gallerist Dorian Katz. "Thank you so much for your support! The responses to our fundraising efforts have been so gratifying. Your continued help in letting people know about our efforts can really make a difference. We have even added new rewards. Publishing this collection of posters and the accompanying essays is important for the preservation and understanding of our history. You don't want the history of the AIDS epidemic written by the folks who write school textbooks in Texas, do you?"

Coverage and promotional support so far:

Visual AIDS

San Francisco Arts Quarterly http://goo.gl/IM2HE1

Tantus founder Metis Black was so kind to talk about our project on OutQ: Sirius’ Derek and Romaine Show here.

Feministing 

There are also articles in the works at poz.com and visualaids.org coming soon.

New reward added: One hundred dollars or more gets donors a ticket to CatalystCon. Thank you, Dee Dennis! (2 tickets available). Donors can still chose from any of our other great rewards such as copies of the poster catalog, beautiful posters (duplicates from our collection), CSC Library tote bags (it's like we are PBS, no?), and even a personalized tour of the archive guided by our curator, Dorian Katz and CSC executive director Dr. Carol Queen.

"Go ahead and get yourself some of this great stuff while preserving and spreading the history that means so much to all of us," said Katz. "Our understanding of ourselves, our formative experiences, and the events that shaped so many aspects of what our communities are today."

Buzz Bense, donor of CSC’s Safer Sex Poster Collection, commented, "These posters do more than chart the tragedy of an epidemic, of an outsider community reeling from grief, loss, and the decimation of a blooming culture of sexual liberation. The history of these posters is a story of a fight against stigma, hatred and ignorance; of a community stepping up to take care of its own; of finding a way to extinguish fear and build pride and self-esteem; and of devoted efforts of committed activists to communicate a path to health and survival."

Sexcellent Ideas: Sabrina Morgan on Pleasure Product Trends

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

Sabrina Morgan on Pleasure Product Trends

The story below is taken from the October 2013 issue of AVN magazine, where we asked 10 sexperts to talk about future trends that they would like to see in the pleasure product industry. Each shared some interesting thoughts, and we'll be posting these individually over the next couple of weeks. Pictured here: Sabrina Morgan.

Sabrina Morgan
Sex and relationship educator, presenter and advocate; Twitter.com/SabrinaMorgan

There are some fantastic, creative products out there that are underused, possibly because a lot of pleasure product customers aren’t sure what to do with them! Some of my favorites are alternative strap-on/dildo harnesses, such as thigh harnesses, chin harnesses (I like the Lickety Split for its adjustability), or the Heeldo strap-on harness worn on the foot. Using nontraditional harnesses, just about any part of the body can become a sex toy. These are perfect for customers with mobility restrictions, satisfying multiple partners, or acting out fantasies involving tease and denial or objectification.

ADVERTISEMENT


On that theme, one of the best ideas I’ve seen recently is the Spareparts Deuce harness, which is a strap-on harness designed to be worn by people with penises. The harness has room for both a dildo and a penis, making those tricky double penetration fantasies easier to schedule and giving guys with intermittent erections a satisfying, intimate way to continue sharing penetrative sex with their partners. I’ve recommended it to many of my coaching clients with good reviews.

For too long, men have been underserved when it comes to quality vibrating toys. I’ve been delighted to see the Aneros Vice taking off in the markets I serve—it’s a high-quality silicone vibrator designed to deliver optimal prostate stimulation, and it’s an idea that was long overdue.

What I would love to see next is a selection of high-quality vibrating toys designed specifically for external use by men. It would be fantastic to see a product that is built around the different sensitivities, anatomy and ergonomic needs (especially overall shape and control placement!) that guys have. Not a vibrating cock ring, but a full vibrator designed for both male solo and partnered pleasure. I bet a lot of guys who have tried vibration would go nuts for something like this.

Next week, thoughts from the final three sexperts will be posted on AVN.com.

Axel Braun Parts Ways With Vivid

Axel Braun Parts Ways With Vivid

LOS ANGELES—AVN Director of the Year three-peater Axel Braun dropped another in a series of recent bombshells Friday afternoon by announcing that he is ending his four-year professional partnership with adult powerhouse Vivid Entertainment effective November 1.

ADVERTISEMENT


“It’s an absolutely amicable split,” Braun said. “Vivid is a terrific company, and everybody there has always been great to me. I have a tremendous amount of respect for [co-chairman] Steven Hirsch, but I simply felt it was time to hit the reset button and challenge myself with different endeavors.”

A 23-year industry veteran, Braun first started collaborating with Vivid in late 2009, when he signed a distribution deal with the studio for his namesake company Axel Braun Productions. His first ABP title, the multiple AVN Award-winning Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, became the highest selling and highest renting title of the year. He has gone on to create acclaimed parodies of nearly every costumed crimefighter in the comic universe, from Superman to Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man and many more.

“I’m first and foremost a comic book fan,” Braun commented. “I notoriously obsess over the tiniest details to make sure that the characters I spoof are portrayed as accurately as possible, and I guess that resonates strongly with other fans. It’s easier to give an audience what they want when you’re part of the same demographic.”

But comics are not the only targets of Braun’s parodies, which often take on his childhood heroes—like in the case of the AVN trophy festooned Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody—or his favorite movies, as with last year’s top-selling and top-renting Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody.

“I’m not going to stop shooting parodies,” assured Braun, who recently signed superstar Riley Steele to an exclusive two-year contract. “I just want to take ABP in a slightly different direction and expand my catalogue, and I feel the need to have more control over every aspect of this phase, and more time to focus on promoting Riley. Meanwhile I will still continue to collaborate with Vivid on the post-production of the many projects that we recently completed, while I’m looking forward to this exciting new stage of my career.

"Vivid has been my family for four years," Braun concluded, "and the fact that we are no longer doing business together has no impact on the friendship that we have."

For Vivid's part, Hirsch offered, "Axel has been a great asset to Vivid and I'm positive he'll be successful in whatever he chooses to do next."

Klein & Harvey To Speak at Capitol Hill Sex Ed Briefings Monday

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

Klein & Harvey To Speak at Capitol Hill Sex Ed Briefings Monday

The Secular Coalition for America (SCA) will host two Capitol Hill briefings on sex education in public schools on Monday. All are invited to attend their U.S. House Briefing from 10-11:30 am in room 2200, Rayburn House Office Building or a U.S. Senate Briefing from 1-2 pm in room 428, Dirksen Senate Office Building.

Speakers will include Dr. Marty Klein, a sex therapist and public policy analyst, and Phil Harvey, owner of DKT International, a Washington-based charity that implements large-scale family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention programs in 19 countries. Harvey is also the co-founder of online retailer Adam & Eve.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The topic of the Congressional Briefing is giving our kids what we didn't have, and it's about the importance of evidence-based sex education," Klein told AVN. "I'm going to talk about the things that science knows about sexuality and the things that science knows about sexuality education, and I think that what every parent wants and what every political representative ought to want is sexuality education for young people that helps them become happy, healthy adults and happy, healthy adolescents, and that's what I'm going to be talking about: what does the science tell us? Not what does Marty Klein think is right or what does God think is right but what does the science tell us?"

Complimentary signed copies of Dr. Klein's book Sexual Intelligence: What We Really Want From Sex and How To Get It, will be available to attendees while supplies last. Also, those who go to Klein's blog, sexed.org, will find that, starting on Monday, there will be a comprehensive article on what science does say about sexual health, and why it's important to pay attention to that science.

Expected attendees at the briefings will primarily include congressional aides from both the Senate and the House, and they will be reporting back to their congressional employers to give them the latest information about what science says about sex ed.

The SCA notes that in the U.S. every year, there are 850,000 teen pregnancies, and 9.1 million Americans under age 25 contract sexually transmitted diseases. Yet, in 32 states, sex education curricula is not required to be medically accurate. Klein and Harvey will discuss the importance of accurate youth sex education and the policy changes needed to make sex education effective including the current status of the issues nationally, including Title V abstinence-only funding, and the importance of properly evaluated, evidence-based programs and more.

Registration is now open for the House Briefing here or the Senate Briefing here.

Mint List: Mikandi’s New Chrome App Store

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

Mikandi's New Chrome App Store

CYBERSPACE—Always looking for new realms to conquer, Mikandi has set its sights on Chrome with the recent beta launch of Mint List, the world's first third-party app store for Chrome. "The MiKandi Mint List is your curated hub of the best html5 porn apps including free Chrome themes and extensions and thousands of free porn videos. Discover, rate and review your favorite porn and experience only the best in adult entertainment," says the Mint List site.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to GeekWire, however, the launch of Mint List came with some inevitable hiccups. " MiKandi soft-launched the new store in beta last week, but then a few days later, a Google update to Chrome made it difficult for third parties to deliver their own apps," wrote Taylor Soper for the site.

"Previously," he continued, "similar to the ability on Android to allow installation of apps from unknown sources outside of the Play Store, Chrome users had to run a Mint List launcher only once to allow the installation of apps, themes and extensions from the third-party Mint List store.

"But the new update eliminated this function, forcing users to approve installation of apps from unknown sources every single time they wanted to download Mint List content," he added.

MiKandi co-founder Jesse Adams told GeekWire he wasn't sure if the timing of the update was intentional or coincidental, but he did label the new rules “Apple-esque restrictions,” and added, "One thing is for certain, they are definitely making moves to stop companies from delivering their own Chrome apps."

He also mused, "I believe Google will say that the restriction is about security and protecting the user, but we’re sensing it’s more about controlling HTML5, which is weird because it should be more open than Android apps."

That said, Mikandi had a workaround in place in a New York minute that forces "users to always launch a Mint List installer before opening Chrome to enable the installation of content from the Mint List Chrome store. Once users close Chrome, they have to repeat this process to download themes, apps and extensions from Mint List."

Fortunately, Mikandi is experienced when it comes to finding creative ways to adapt to Google's unpredictable proclivities.

ED Publications Presents The Exotic Dancer Invitationals

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

ED Publications, producers of the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo, celebrates the return of the showgirl by introducing two national, invitation-only feature dance contests

ED Publications Presents The Exotic Dancer Invitationals

CLEARWATER, Fla.—The showgirl is the life’s blood of touring feature entertainment. The best of the best in the exotic showgirls arena are honored each year with the presentation of Exotic Dancer’s “Overall Entertainer of the Year” Award at the Annual Exotic Dancer (ED) Awards in Las Vegas during the Gentlemen’s Club Expo. 

To enhance the prestige of this national award and to insure that the most qualified applicants all have a shot at the title, ED Publications, producer of the Expo, the Annual ED Awards and the bimonthly Club Bulletin magazine, is launching a new national contest series in 2014: the Annual Exotic Dancer Invitational.

ADVERTISEMENT


This feature dance contest will be held twice a year—once on the West Coast (EDI-West Coast) and once on the East Coast (EDI-East Coast)—with the winners of each contest filling two of the four nominee slots for the ED’s “Overall Feature Entertainer of the Year” Award. (The official titles they will earn will be EDI's 2014 Showgirl Champion-East Coast and EDI's 2014 Showgirl Champion-West Coast.) There will also be a "newcomer" division, vying for the title EDI's 2014 Showgirl Newcomer (East Coast and West Coast). These "Invitationals" will also provide the top showgirls with an additional asset: The opportunity to earn valuable contest titles from the industry’s trade publication to help enhance their feature entertainer careers. There will also be cash prizes for the top three finishers. 

 “The days of the magazine models are long gone, so the only real opportunity for showgirls to build their credits as feature entertainers is through high-end and selective dance contests,” stated ED Publications’ Associate Publisher Dave Manack. “Our company is going to bring the same standards of professionalism that we bring each year to our Annual Expo and Awards Show to these Exotic Dancer Invitationals. And, as indicated by the word ‘Invitational,’ we will only be inviting the best of the best to compete for the main and mini titles. Ultimately, through these contests, we will be telling club owners which showgirls are the ones they want to book in their clubs.”

There is no fee for the contestants to participate, and contestants will receive complimentary hotel accommodations. Target dates for the 2014 Exotic Dancer Invitationals are March 2014 to late May (host clubs TBA).

For host club, contestant or event sponsorship information, please call ED Publications at 727-726-3592, email here, or visit this link.

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—NS Novelties has just released two innovative new products, popular with male consumers, to the adult novelty marketplace: the Perfect Pal, an economical, travel-sized stroker; and the Pinnacle, an intensely ridged, vibrating anal plug.

"With more men buying novelty products than ever before, it's important that our efforts are inclusive of both women and men, gay and straight," says Lavi Yedid, director of operations for NS Novelties. "The introduction of the Perfect Pal and the Pinnacle is proof that NS Novelties continues to manufacture products for a wide variety of consumers and provides solutions to problems that many of those consumers encounter within the marketplace. The compact Perfect Pal fits easily into a suitcase or carry-on bag, allowing men to bring their novelties with them on-the-go instead of worrying about the size, weight, and bulk of other strokers. With so few anal plugs currently available that provide the added sensation of a vibrating bullet, the Pinnacle anal plug is the perfect alternative. These are the things that set us apart as a novelty company dedicated to offering up only the newest, most innovative products to the marketplace."

Available in bright blue, frosted, or white the Perfect Pal provides consumers with an affordable compact stroker that can be used both at home or on-the-go. Made of the softest, body-safe TPE, it features oversized edges providing a non-slip grip and a wide opening tunnel, which can be squeezed to accommodate a variety of girth sizes. Internally, the Perfect Pal's uniquely rippled shaft offers an incredible, textured stimulation adding to the intensity of the experience. Adding to its overall versatility, the Perfect Pal not only can be used with a variety of lubricants, but it's also waterproof, allowing for sexual experiences both in and out of the shower.

Like the Perfect Pal, the Pinnacle is also made from body-safe TPE. Its deeply ridged design and textured, girthy shaft are enhanced by a one-touch, 10-function, removable bullet, which provides the ultimate in anal experiences. Available in crystal clear or midnight black, the Pinnacle also features a thick, safety removal ring. Its multiple stimulation settings and easy-insertion tapered tip will appeal to a broad spectrum of men and women whether they are new to anal play or anal enthusiasts.

Introduced at this past July's ANME show, the Perfect Pal and the Pinnacle were instant hits. Retailers and distributors were impressed by the convenience and affordability of the economically sized, Perfect Pal and were wowed by the overall design and technology implemented in 10-vibrating speed Pinnacle. Pre-orders on both products were incredibly strong and NS Novelties is confident in the overall response buyers will have now that both products have officially released to the marketplace.

Fabian Thylmann Sells Stake in Manwin

Posted Oct 18th, 2013 11:30 AM

CYBERSPACE—AVN has confirmed that Manwin principal Fabian Thylmann is no longer associated with the company, and that he sent an email this morning to company employees to confirm a rumor making the rounds both inside and outside of Manwin over the past few months that he has sold his interest in the company to "top management."

The letter sent by Fabian and his wife, Inka, is, as follows:

Hi everyone!

It has been a long time since most of us have talked, but today I am reaching out for an announcement that I am sure has been rumoured around the office in the last few months.

It is with a sad heart that I have to announce that I have decided to sell Manwin to Manwin's top Management Team. Please believe me that this decision has been one of the hardest in our lives for both my wife and myself. We have grown fond of all of you and are happy to be able to call many of you our close and dear friends.

But exactly for this reason we believe this move is the best for everyone. Both myself and Manwin are at a stage where I can no longer add significant value to the best of my ability. I hope I have taught all of you and management the right values to be able to continue the company in the best possible way and I am looking forward to following its development.

Who knows, maybe some of our paths will cross again in the years to come. If anyone wants to chat, I can be reached via my old Manwin eMail address for the foreseeable future.

I hope you had a good time with my family and myself around and can keep fond memories of our fun times together. Keep up the great work everyone and hopefully see you soon!

Inka & Fabian

Sexcellent Ideas: Reid Mihalko on Pleasure Product Trends

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

Reid Mihalko on Pleasure Product Trends

The story below is taken from the October 2013 issue of AVN magazine, where we asked 10 sexperts to talk about future trends that they would like to see in the pleasure product industry. Each shared some interesting thoughts, and we'll be posting these individually over the next couple of weeks. Pictured here: Reid Mihalko.

Sex and relationship expert and geek. ReidAboutSex.com

Me personally?

I would like to see more items targeted toward baby boomers and post-menopausal women. We are seeing people who are aging but they are having more and more sex later in life. I personally have lovers who are in their 70s and 80s. But they need things to help them continue having great sex.

ADVERTISEMENT


Men, women and older couples need to navigate that shift into changing bodies, changing libidos and changing abilities, so why can’t manufacturers help them navigate those shifts?

I’m not just talking about hormonal lubricants that are out there to help with things. Aneros is good in that it talks about stimulating the prostate with their toys and all the benefits. But other companies could do the same.

There are existing toys and devices that could be marketed to an older audience, showing them that even though they might be in their Golden Years they can still have a great sex life. Sex furniture, like what Liberator makes, is good for that. Older people can’t hold certain positions for long periods of time, so sex furniture helps.

Manufacturers could also target empty nesters. Not everyone is a 30-year-old fetish model, so ads that target older couples could show these items are for them too; anything that helps educate them about having great sex in their later years.

Toy-wise, I would love to see a Spider-Man web slinger for lubricant. Or a James Bond-style watch that shoots lube where I need it when I need it. When you are hand fucking someone, or two people at once even, you can’t really take time out to apply lube. I am fortunate in that I have a “lube caddy”; it’s like having a golf caddy, who gives you the right clubs as you need them, but my lube caddy applies lube as I need when I’m hand-fucking someone. To have a watch or something that could do that would be wonderful.

Also, I would like to see the industry come up with Sex Standard Kits. Most homes have smoke alarms or CO2 alarms and emergency kits. This would be like an emergency kit but it would have standard items that everyone would have to help have better sex. They would be stocked with a vibrator, a bullet, lubricant, etc.

And finally, I think someone needs to look at making something to help people of size hold vibrators and toys in place. Sometimes people of size, who have a larger belly, can’t always reach the vulva or penis easily. It would be nice to see an extender or a vibrator designed with a longer handle for them.

Monday, check back on AVN.com to hear from Sabrina Morgan.

Porn Star Addicted Ex-Con Popped for Break-in

Porn Star Addicted Ex-Con Popped for Break-in

NEW YORK—An alleged mobster with reported ties to a notorious crime family was arrested last month “for allegedly breaking into his porn star ex-gal pal’s upper East Side apartment,” the NY Daily News has reported.  The performer, identified in the story as Trista Geyer, is a Florida native who also performs as Kendall Brooks.

ADVERTISEMENT


“Ex-con Thomas Gelardo, 30, believed to be a Luchese associate, was ordered held without bail at his Wednesday arraignment in Manhattan Supreme Court on burglary and criminal contempt charges,” the article added.

This was not Gelardo’s first brush with the law over Brooks, according to the News, which cited “at least three arrests dating to June 9” at her apartment. Despite the fact that she had gotten two restraining orders against him, prosecutors claim that Gelardo was so obsessed with Brooks that he called her “upwards of 60 times a day.”

They also said that on a previous occasion he “threw her into a wall, injuring her,” and in another incident "showed up with another individual, kicked [her] door and told (the victim) that he thought there was a guy (in there) and he was willing to stab the guy."

According to iafd.com, Brooks, 31, has 21 credits to her name, during her active years from 2007-10.

Mainstream Men’s Publications Embrace Jimmyjane’s Hello Touch

Mainstream Men’s Publications Embrace Jimmyjane’s Hello Touch

Posted Oct 17th, 2013 03:04 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—Jimmyjane’s Hello Touch vibrator has been featured in several mainstream publications recently, including Men’s Health and GQ Magazine, which both featured the unique item in their October issues.

In Men’s Health they announced Hello Touch is the “Best New Sex Toy” in their 2013 Sex Awards, alongside Jimmyjane’s Afterglow Natural Massage Oil Candle, which won “Hottest Sex Accessory.” Hello Touch also appeared in GQ Magazine’s October Issue. The feature article encourages men to overcome their fear of using a sex toy with a partner stating, “That first time with the [Jimmyjane] vibrator wasn't just some of the best sex we'd ever had; it was some of the best I'd ever had.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Hello Touch also broke new ground this month when it was the first vibrator to appear on prestigious tech site All Things D. Adding to previous exposure in The Today Show, The Rachael Ray Show, The London Times, NY Post, Harper’s Bazaar and International Business Times, Hello Touch vibrator is quickly becoming a new “must-have” item for couples.  

Men’s publications have embraced Jimmyjane’s Hello Touch wearable vibrator because it successfully targets the growing couples market for vibrators and is medically endorsed for prostate stimulation. Studies show that of the 52 percent of American women who have tried a vibrator, 78 percent of them used one with a partner. Hello Touch is ideal for use during foreplay, which 60 percent of women report as their favorite part of the sexual experience and necessary for reaching orgasm.

Because of Jimmyjane’s quality products, approachable design aesthetic, and technology innovation to enhance the user experience, they are changing the public perception on vibrators. Hello Touch, which is non-phallic and worn on the hand, has been embraced by the technology community as part of the wearable tech trend. The vibrator was the focus of a Jimmyjane brand profile on prestigious tech site, All Things D, following in the footsteps of Apple, Microsoft and Samsung. The article highlighted how Jimmyjane is enhancing consumers’ lives with this growing niche area of technology—sex tech. Jimmyjane has led the sex toy category, which was once taboo to mainstream crossover. Vibrators are now recognized as an important tool to help couples experience a more positive sex life, an important part of an overall healthy lifestyle. 

Hello Touch features a pair of ultra-compact Vibration Pods, each enclosed in a supple silicone finger pad. It offers more than three times the power of other fingertip vibrators in less than one third the size. Unlike other fingertip vibrators, it’s perfect for internal or external stimulation. It allows the consumer to touch and move as they normally would, now with added sensations.

XXXJay Announces Severance From All His Companies

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

The veteran webmaster, marketer, founder and owner of a number of successful adult entertainment companies said he has been bought out of all of them.

XXXJay Announces Severance From All His Companies

LOS ANGELES—Jay “XXXJay” Quinlan, the veteran webmaster, marketer, founder and owner of a number of successful adult entertainment companies announced today that he has been bought out of all of them. His future, he said, is “wide open and I’m optimistic.”

Specifically, he announced, “I am no longer an owner or working with Pornstar Platinum, OCCash, OCModeling, Lords of Porn or FreshChecks because ‘the partners had different visions for the future of the companies, and decided to go in a different directions. I wish them the best in new ventures and current business.’

ADVERTISEMENT


“Does that explanation sound kind of ‘stock,’” he quickly added. “It is. Do I wish them continued success? Yes. As an integral part of building these programs/brands: I truly do. They are my legacy. Would one want to leave behind a legacy of failure or success?

“The latter, I hope.”

A longtime and voluble fixture on the adult scene, XXXJay expressed a full measure of pride in his achievements over the years. “Fact is,” he wrote, “I built all of these companies (and previously JQMEDIA aka ‘Jays XXX Links’) from struggling upstarts to successful businesses without the aid of much cash. I did it with ingenuity, experience, and hard work. I kept them in business and healthy for years past where most with their same business model had folded by keeping in-house traffic high. I’ve never ripped anyone off and sold out for a profit every time.

“I’m not growing a 3rd hand to pat myself on the back,” he explained, “but…That’s a good track record, right? I’ve done this 3 times. I can do it again.”

An energetic individual, even as he was ostensibly signing off Quinlan could not help listing his professional qualifications—should any especially interesting concepts be percolating out there. Considering he now has “unlimited time, am relieved of stress, and a decent chunk of change in my pocket,” he reminded the industry, “If anyone needs one of the best traffic, SEO, affiliate, social media, program owner, PR, marketing, brand development, biz-dev, networking, digital media, project management, Wordpress, tube traffic, press writers, b2b, branding, public speakers, GFY jockey, webmaster dudes/out-of-the-box thinkers / jack-of-all-trades in this business…

“I’m here, just waiting for the next opportunity to strike.”

Responding to a query, Jay said he was unsure to what extent, if at all, his former companies would be reorganized.

Q&A: Affil4You on Monetizing Mobile Traffic

Affil4You on Monetizing Mobile Traffic

Posted Oct 17th, 2013 11:30 AM

This interview originally ran in the 2013 Webmaster Access show guide.

Affil4You takes all the guesswork out of marketing adult content to an international audience via the full variety of available mobile devices. Its expertise includes the understanding and experience of providing content and full billing services in dozens of countries while complying with all applicable laws and international processing requirements. Using the company’s simple sales solution platform, your global traffic can be turned into a significant revenue stream for your company without any up-front expense or the continual resources that would be needed for you to establish compliant cardless billing options on your own. Managing Director Joey Gabra was kind enough to answer our questions.

ADVERTISEMENT


What are the biggest challenges in terms of monetizing mobile traffic? How have you specifically addressed those challenges?

There are actually quite a few challenges … but there are a few that stand out as well. In the mobile industry we are constantly faced with the rapidly changing regulations that each country and each mobile carrier impose upon us.

There is a lot of work that goes behind making sure that we are fully compliant with all of these regulations, while still being able to provide a valuable service that makes money for all our affiliates.

We also face the challenges of our competitors and making sure we claim our stake in every territory that we launch our services in.

The best ways to specifically address these challenges is with a good combination of experience, creativity, and haste. We have strong relationships in the industry and it gives us an upper hand in the overall game. We also have crack team of over 30 techies who live for this kind of stuff, so when we all put our heads together it’s pretty damn amazing what we can come up with to overcome so many of the challenges we come across.

How are you going to prepare for 2014, when over 50 percent of website traffic is expected to come from mobile devices?

We have spent our lives as a company preparing for this type of thing. Affil4You was built to take as much traffic as we can get our hands on and make big money for all our affiliates … so we hope to see the trends continue to increase globally!

Are there any technical or business model innovations in the mobile space applicable to adult that truly excite you?

Plenty of things about what is happening in our space excites me…but I suppose it’s less about the innovations and more about the enhancements for what is already out there.

People are becoming especially creative with the apps they are creating, so that is fun to see. I am also excited to see where things may go with the new Google Glass project, and I am quite pleased to see my friends from MiKandi kicking things off in the adult mobile space for the Google Glass project.

There also seems to be a growing trend in motion-sensor technology and voice-activated technology, which opens up a world of fun things we can do in the mobile space!

Parent company Wister celebrated its 10-year anniversary this year. Can you name a few of the company’s proudest achievements over the years?

I would say that some of our proudest achievements would be in the fact that we have grown as a team so rapidly in the past few years. We now have almost 50 people working with us with an office in Los Angeles and our headquarters based in Paris.

We have also made our mark as one of the top mobile service providers in Europe, which is not an easy thing to do considering there is so much competition out there. We have prided ourselves on being something of a “sleeping giant” … while we took the approach to grow slowly and steadily, so we could build a firm foundation for our company to really flourish.

We have also won a number of different awards over the years, which we are very proud of, and are aiming to win many more!

What are you most optimistic about in terms of your own company and the industry in general?

I am so optimistic that Affil4You is absolutely in the right place at the right time. We are a part of an industry that thrives on innovation and creativity … and Affil4You literally has the best of both worlds. We are seeing improvements in every aspect and we have been able to overcome the challenges that we get faced with as the industry becomes more beastly as it grows.

I am also quite optimistic about what so many of the other great companies are doing out there to make the mobile space a more lucrative space for all of us. One of the best things about what we do is being able to work with some of these other companies and find ways that we can partner up and creatively complement what we do as business.

Larry Flynt: Do Not Execute the Man Who Shot Me

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

Joseph Paul Franklin is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection Nov. 20 in Missouri.

Do Not Execute the Man Who Shot Me

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—Hustler founder and publisher Larry Flynt has penned an essay for The Hollywood Reporter that argues against executing Joseph Paul Franklin, the man who shot and paralyzed him from the waist down in 1978.

ADVERTISEMENT


“As I stood on the steps of the Georgia courthouse where I was fighting obscenity charges, a series of gunshots rang out,” writes Flynt. “I remember nothing that happened after that until I woke up in the intensive care unit. The damage to my central nervous system was severe, and it took several weeks before doctors could stabilize me. From then on, I was paralyzed from the waist down, and have been confined to a wheelchair ever since.”

Franklin, who committed several other heinous crimes in a nationwide spree that included bombing synagogues, shooting Vernon Jordan Jr., and shooting and killing an interracial couple—the crime for which he was finally caught—had targeted Flynt “because of a photo spread I ran in Hustler magazine featuring a black man and a white woman.”

Flynt states, “I think somebody had to have been financing him, but nothing ever turned up on who that somebody may have been.

“In all the years since the shooting,” he adds, “I have never come face-to-face with Franklin. I would love an hour in a room with him and a pair of wire-cutters and pliers, so I could inflict the same damage on him that he inflicted on me. But, I do not want to kill him, nor do I want to see him die.”

Stating that the death penalty "is not a deterrent," Flynt argues that “a life spent in a 3-by-6-foot cell is far harsher than the quick release of a lethal injection,” and that “the long and complex judicial process required for capital cases” makes life in prison less expensive than execution.

“I have every reason to be overjoyed with this decision, but I am not,” he concludes. “I have had many years in this wheelchair to think about this very topic. As I see it, the sole motivating factor behind the death penalty is vengeance, not justice, and I firmly believe that a government that forbids killing among its citizens should not be in the business of killing people itself.”
