VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR SEPTEMBER 30, 2016

 STEVEN HIRSCH INTERVIEW ON HULK HOGAN VERDICT CONTINUES TO CREATE BUZZ -- An interview about the Gawker/Hulk Hogan case with Fox News by Vivid founder and co-chair Steven Hirsch have attracted significant media attention. Fox News said despite the staggering verdict against Gawker, “the game hasn’t changed for everyone. Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, which published the Kim Kardashian and Farrah Abraham sex tapes, among many others, says as far as he’s concerned, it is business a usual. ‘The Gawker case has no effect on celeb sex tapes. That was a media outlet publishing a clip under the heading of news,’ Hirsch said. ‘It has always been the case that ultimately the celebs have to sign off prior to release. The idea is to create a scenario where it makes sense for everybody involved whether financially or for publicity to allow the release. That will never change.’” As the world’s #1 expert on celebrity sex tapes Steven’s opinion on any aspect of the genre is sought after.  His comments continue to get press coverage.  Vivid Entertainment dominates the celebrity sex tape category with more movies than any other company in the industry starring such personalities as Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, Pamela Anderson, etc. Among the media to pick up on the story are Celebrity News Insider, MSN.com, US News in Real Time, BollywoodEveryday, Celebrities64GB and even IsraelForeignAffairs.com. Plus there were numerous Twitter and blog posts referencing Steven’s interview, including Nik Richie and Zinnie62Blog.com.

 VIVID CELEB SEX TAPE STAR THE ADORABLE TILA TEQUILA -- Tila Tequila is the star of two very Vivid Celeb sex tapes, Tila Tequila Backdoored and Squirting and Tila Tequila Uncorked. Both tapes remain extremely popular and Tila herself stays in the spotlight with her antics. She also updates her very popular (over 2 million followers) Twitter and Facebook accounts continually, keeping her fans up to date on her doings and her opinions on everything from sex to Donald Trump. In one recent morning post she said, “Wow! I just looked in the mirror and was like, ‘Whoa! You look pretty cute for just waking up!’” One day she also posted her conclusion that “I’m nothing but an ancient romance novel on a repeated loop.” She’s also posted some intimate shots of herself wearing not much more than skimpy lingerie and she keeps her fans up to date on all the inside details of her appearances on Celebrity Big Brother.

 APRIL FLORES AND HER VOLUPTUOUS LIFE -- One of the increasingly popular Vivid Radio programs is “Voluptuous Life,” (Fridays, 1-2 pm) starring the plus-sized April Flores. In addition to her weekly show, April has a Wikipedia entry all to herself, which reads in part:  “She is Ecuadorian from her father’s side and Mexican from her mother's side, and she calls herself “Mexidorian”. When Flores was a child, she said she wanted to be a plastic surgeon simply because they made a lot of money. She had struggled with weight issues since childhood and wanted to be slim, but she abandoned the idea after losing weight in college and then concluding that life was ‘just the same.’” Also known as Fatty Delicious, April’s Vivid Radio bio says she “a muse, model, and erotic performer but that’s not even scratching the surface.” It also reminds us that April “is the first ever BBW to win two consecutive AVN Awards for her groundbreaking work. The curvy beauty has graced the covers of Bizarre and AVN magazines, among others; modeled for dozens of fine art photographers; appeared in countless adult films in every genre of the adult industry (from mainstream to queer to kinky to artsy); and spoken out about body image through her mere presence and powerful sexuality, along with her activism.”
