Vivid Studio Insider for October 25, 2013
VIVID FEATURED IN ‘DAILY BEAST’ STORY ON PORN ‘REVOLUTION’ – The Daily Beast writer (and actress) Aurora Snow praises Vivid Entertainment for bringing back the great adult films of the 70s. In her article “Video Killed the Porn Star” she writes: “Imagine walking down 42nd Street and seeing the bright lights of New York City illuminating a porn star’s name on the marquee above a posh theater. A theater you don’t have to be embarrassed to be seen in, a place where you can bring a date for a good time. Hard to imagine isn’t it? … In the ‘70s, adult movies had a beginning, middle and an end. The actors were paid to act, not just have sex. The films of those times would be all but lost to today’s generation if it weren’t for the remakes breathing life back into the “golden era.” Vivid has resurrected four big movies from the ‘70s porn renaissance. While I’d heard of the classic Behind the Green Door and knew who Marilyn Chambers was, I’d never bothered to see it until the remake…I can see why Vivid’s reimaging of the film The New Behind the Green Door) was done with a fantasy spin on a modern take with a few flashbacks to the original. As Vivid’s co-founder and CEO Steven Hirsch tells me, ‘Times have changed and we want to be sure these versions reflect what’s happening today.’”
MYLA’S VIDEO ROLLING OUT - Myla Sinanaj’s premier video with Vivid is rolling out this month and the mainstream media is paying attention. The Hollywood Gossip carried the news, with writer Hilton Hater focusing on the news that she “is reportedly getting plastic surgery to resemble Kim Kardashian.” In its article on the debut of Myla Sinanaj: The Anti-Kim XXX, The Hollywood Gossip writes: “Vivid says Sinanaj ‘displays her unequalled, sensuous style as she enthusiastically tries different moves with her athletic partner.’ She also engages in anal sex. Take that, Kim!” In a poll asking its readers if they intend to buy a copy of the video, 66.7% said “oh, heck, yes.”

THE GLOSS INTERVIEWS FARRAH – Pop culture website The Gloss interviewed Farrah Abraham, asking her about her sex tape, her fans and her future. Writer Randi Newton caught up with Farrah during the opening of Vivid Cabaret/LA, noting that she “had a very busy summer, appearing on Dr. Phil, spending time with little Sophia, and attending nightclub openings.
Recently being known for her work in Vivid’s Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, Farrah has enjoyed getting to meet her new fan base of men who enjoy upscale gentlemen’s clubs. As for the famed leaked sex tape, Miss Abraham summed up the whole experience by making this statement: ‘I think having a TV show that shows your personality and your intimate life, you know, showing your best friend, and then showing having sex — to me it’s kind of the same thing because both things are intimate…You’re very close with them, so in that aspect, in that light, I think it’s only helped me be more honest and a hardworking person because I have more going on than my personal life, I have a professional life. So that’s how I feel about that.’”
