Vivid Studio Insider For February 1, 2013

 CLERKS XXX:  A PORN PARODY HITS THE WEB, WILL BE IN STORES FEB. 5th – Clerks XXX:  A Porn Parody is now available online at and will be in stores nationwide on Feb. 5th. The screenplay for Clerks XXX is the work of veteran writer David Stanley, who’s long had a dream of creating an adult parody of the 1994 black-and-white Indie cult classic. Stanley’s adult parody/comedy version is filled with lewd and crude humor and celebrates the sex lives of slackers Dana (Allie Haze), Silent Bertha (Kelly Divine), Randi (Lexi Swallow), and Jane (Chastity Lynn). The movie also stars Jayden Lee, Evan Stone, Mark Davis, Brian Street Team, Seth Gamble and Barry Scott. The storyline follows Dana, who is unhappy with her job as a smut-jockey in a porno store. She has two boyfriends, both of whom are cheating on her…on her day off she has to contend with smart-ass co-worker Randi…a riot by anti-condom crusaders, video booth customers who can’t resist ejaculating on the video screens…a silent pimp and his obnoxious prostitute…a gerbil-loving customer and assorted other problems.  The “Clerks XXX” DVD includes a non-hardcore sex version in black-and-white.

– Popular website has an extensive interview with Phil Varone by Alison Richter. Titled “Phil Varone on sex, drugs, rock and roll and the reunion of Saigon Kick,” the wide ranging interview also touches on his Vivid-distributed adult movies.  Varone reveals that women from his past contacted him after the release of his first movie, concerned that they might be in it.  Phil tells Richter: “Let me say this right off the bat: I never taped a girl without them knowing. I’m not that guy. There’s no reason to do that. But I don’t know. Girls see a camera and they want to perform. When word got out about the [first movie], I got a lot of e-mails from girls and they were like, ‘I’m not on that, am I?’ Because now we’re talking ten years later, with marriages and kids and professions. I said, ‘No. Don’t worry about it. I would never release something without an actual signed release.’”
