TWELVE THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT VIVID (ACCORDING TO SUPERCOMPRESSOR): Supercompressor.com says, “When it comes to porn,  Vivid Entertainment knows what they're doing and have been doing it well since 1984. The porn production giants have had a long, fascinating history that has withstood the test of time and fast-changing technology. Chances are, if you've watched any piece of pornography in your life (and you have, you liar) it's been produced by Vivid.” The site said it was “curious why this legendary company has lasted for thirty years” and it found 12 reasons, beginning with the fact that it was founded by Steven Hirsch when he was “barely out of his teens.”  To see all twelve reasons visit www.supercopressor.com

 CAPTAIN AMERICA XXX: AN AXEL BRAUN PARODY DEBUTS ONLINE - Captain America XXX: An Axel Braun Parody made its online debut this week and will be in stores nationwide on April 15. Braun and Vivid have brought plenty of joy to adult entertainment fans with their best-selling superhero parodies; now they've tackled the quintessential American hero: Captain America! Axel wrote the original screenplay for Captain America XXX, in which Cap fights for the Cosmic Cube against Baron Zemo, Sin, Crossbones and Batroc, with the help of Sharon Carter, Diamondback, Falcon and Quicksilver. The result is an epic sexy spoof that once again has better costumes, more geek cred, and definitely bigger boobs than the original. Says Axel: “It’s almost too much awesome in one movie. Call me nostalgic, but I like to see my superheroes in their classic costumes, especially if they’ve never been portrayed in a live-action movie…and in my adult spoof I was able to really go all out, so I’m one happy fanboy!” Aaron Wilcoxxx plays Captain America, Phoenix Marie reprises her Avengers XXX role as Sharon Carter, Claire Robbins is Sin, Kleio Valentien is Diamondback, Jessica Ryan is Hellcat, Britney Amber is a hot USO Girl, Ryan Driller is Baron Zemo, Tyler Knight is Falcon, Bill Bailey is Quicksilver, Derrick Pierce is Crossbones, and Giovanni Francesco, who previously played Batman in Braun’s highly successful The Dark Knight XXX, steals every scene he’s in as the mustached French villain Batroc.

The Captain America XXX launch was covered widely. Among the many sites writing about the debut were TimesSquareGossip.com, MajorSpoilers,  Love, Blood & Rhetoric, ComicsforSinners.com, and BoobieBlog.

MEDIA INTERESTI IN KRIS JENNER SEX TAPE CONTINUES – Media interest in the RadarOnline story about a possible sex tape starring Kim Kardashian’s mom Kris Jenner continues, with mentions of Vivid. The Daily Mail had a major story on the rumored tape under the headline: ” Porn mogul Steve Hirsch vows to buy alleged Kris Jenner sex tape if it is offered to him and return it to her.” The story by reporter Collette Fahy noted,”A mystery man, known only as 'Troy', reportedly wants to sell it to Vivid Entertainment, the same company who distributed X-rated footage of her daughter Kim Kardashian, but Steve Hirsch of Vivid says he will return it to Jenner if it is offered to him for sale. The adult entertainment kingpin told 'As of today, I have not been approached by anyone with any tape. If it exists, and I don't think it does, bring it to me. I'll buy it and hand it right back to Kris.'” Similar coverage could be found on Los Angeles-based Allvoices.com, LatinPost.com and Wetpaint.com, which reported: “If the notorious  Kris Jenner sex tape does indeed exist, it’s got at least one company interested. Steve Hirsch of Vivid Entertainment, described by RadarOnline.com as ‘the king of adult films’ (sorry Ron Jeremy), says he’ll totally buy an XXX film starring Kris. But only, he adds, to hand it right back to the 58-year-old momager. That’s quite the gentlemanly gesture seeing as the latest rumor has the tape going for a cool $1 million.”
