MSNBC INTERVIEWS STEVEN HIRSCH ON PORN IN ARAB WORLD -- Following reports that a stash of porn was found in Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistani lair, MSNBC sought out Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch to learn more about porn in Arab countries. Journalist Martin Bashir wanted to know about “the prevalence and availability of porn in countries where it is strictly forbidden.” Steven said that Vivid received an average of 100,000 unique visits each month from Muslin countries, led by Turkey and Pakistan. “It doesn’t surprise me at all,” Steven told Bashir, adding, “healthy men and women all over the world enjoy watching adult movies and now, with the Internet, they have easy access to it.” Steven also said that while governments might be able to halt internet access to porn and other content temporarily, it cannot do so over the long run. He added that since the decline of DVD sales, Internet revenues have been Vivid’s largest source of profit growth.

I can well imagine what Charlie Sheen saw in those fabulous green eyes and full lips."
ALLIE IN THE NEWS IN FRANCE – She signed just last week as the newest Vivid Girl, and already Allie Haze is making headlines in France. Le Nouvel Observateur and Hot Video wrote about Allie being chosen by producer Alain Siritzky to play the role of Emmanuelle in a new series of nine films. But all of the stories mentioned her newest role – that of exclusive contract actress for Vivid. Allie was in France to appear at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival, where the new Emmanuelle series is being promoted. Le Nouvel Observateur reported that the 23-year-old Californian “doesn’t perform under her porn-name (Allie Haze), but rather under her 'mainstream' screen name: Brittany Joy.” In addition to being named a Vivid Girl, the stunning 5'7" brunette recently won the honor of Best New Starlet by XRCO, the X-Rated Critics Organization. Her selection as Emmanuelle comes after Siritzky, who was producer and executive producer of the earliest films in the series, went on a worldwide search for an actress to star in the new nine-film series. Siritzky has said of his new series, "There is a need for a responsible and honest film that addresses many relevant topics that young adults as well as mature adults are faced with of late. It may surprise some that Emmanuelle is the modern messenger of such important issue. Though much has changed from when the original was released, the foundation of Emmanuelle has not...which is that Emmanuelle is more than a character or a novel or film. Emmanuelle is a way of life that celebrates women. It is beautiful, stylish, feminine, thought-provoking and powerful, as all women are created. This message is one that is important now more than ever to instill in women everywhere and of all ages." From Cannes Allie heads to Florida, where she will be appearing at Exxxotica Miami Beach (May 20-22) at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

The Q & A includes this exchange: “Q. Your Vivid film The 11th Hole has received rave reviews. I personally gave it a highly recommended rating. How was the experience of re-creating the scenes and making them into an adult production? A. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. That really means a lot to me because I must tell you, It was intense, very different then anything I've ever done in the adult biz. Because I got to F*ck how I do in my personal life. No one telling what they want. They actually said ‘So F*ck how you and TW f*cked.’ So that's how it was for the most part. We did get naughtier, but you get the idea. Q. A major component of the movie is the text messages that you and Tiger sent to each other during your relationship. What are your thoughts about having them placed in the film and who had the idea that these private and intimate conversations should be a part of this production? A.
Steven Hirsch suggested it and I guess it fit.”
