MAJOR FORBES MAGAZINE ARTICLE FOCUSES ON VIVID -- ” An article on Vivid Entertainment appears in the December 12th issue of Forbes Magazine. Since the issue is also the Forbes Investment Guide for 2006, it will remain on newsstands through February, rather than the normal two-weeks. The article opens with a two-page spread that includes a photo of Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch standing in front of a movie set. Hirsch is quoted throughout by reporter Seth Lubove. Asked about signs that the U.S. government is stepping up its battle against pornography, Hirsch is quoted as saying “there's been an explosion of technology and delivery platforms, so there's a disconnect with the morality police. Ultimately I believe juries understand people have the right to watch what they want to watch." Lubove recites the history of Vivid and notes that the company “makes some 60 films a year and releases 30 compilation discs a month…licenses the Vivid name for a vodka line, videogames, a Las Vegas night club, virility-enhancement concoctions, X-rated comic books and even a set of custom car wheels. He flirts with the idea of taking the company public in a few years….’This is a business, and we treat it like a business,’ says Hirsch, 44, whose obsessively neat office sits across the 101 freeway from General Electric's Universal Studios and displays a wall of plasma screens tuned to financial news, sports and dozens of security-camera feeds. His partner, William Asher, who holds diplomas from Dartmouth and the University of Southern California, says Vivid could reap riches on new outlets such as cell phones and iPods
