 WETWORK MAKES XBIZ AWARDS SPLASH -- Wetwork swam away with seven wins at the 2015 XBiz Award Show at the JW Marriott hotel in Los Angeles. The sexy drama about  spies, international intrigue, assassins and prostitutes of every sort was honored as Feature Movie of the Year; Eli Cross was named Director of the Year; Steven St. Croix was picked as Best Actor in a Feature Movie; Mark Logan for Screenplay of the Year; Nic Danger and Alex Ladd for Best Cinematography; the Vivid Studio for Best Art Direction; and Robert April for Best Editing. Eli commented: “The way the industry has changed, going in with a big, original feature you really feel like the underdog. We were up against a lot of great projects so it's fantastic to get the recognition in a field like that. A lot of people really committed to this project, and put in an enormous amount of work; Penny Pax and Steven St. Croix each gave career-defining performances. The art direction by Kylie Ireland and Andy Appleton was subtle, incredibly meticulous and well thought-out, so it's gratifying for them to have gotten that award. I'm so grateful to XBiz for the accolades, and to everyone who worked on the film and gave it their all, but mostly to Marci and Steven Hirsch from Vivid, who've been behind this film 100% from day one. They gave us the creative freedom and support to really create something special. Vivid has a legacy of releasing the best adult features in the world, and it’s very meaningful for Wetwork to be a part of that proud history.” Steven St. Croix added: “I really wasn’t expecting anything this year, so I’m humbled and grateful. I think it’s awesome that I won awards when I started in movies with Vivid many years ago and now, as they transition to the new adult market, I win again for one of their features.” Earlier Wetwork won the XCritic.com 2014 Best Adult Feature award and Steven St. Croix was named the Best Male Actor award for his role in the movie.

 XCRITIC POSTS CLIP OF “UNIQUE” TAYLOR CHANDLER MOVIE -- XCritic.com has posted a clip of the newest Vivid Celeb release, Going For The Gold, XCritic wrote: “Vivid Celeb has consistently brought out unique and interesting releases. It's hard to think of one as unique as their latest release, Going For The Gold featuring Taylor Lianne Chandler, the world’s first intersex porn star. In case you were wondering, intersex means that Taylor was born with both male and female parts. This release would be interesting in its own right, but it gets even more interesting as Taylor Lianne Chandler was a rumored Tinder hookup with (an) Olympic gold medalist.”

 MONIQUE TALKS TATTOOS AND GUILTY PLEASURES – The current issue of Steppin’ Out Magazine includes an “Ouch” feature on Vivid Radio host Monique Alexander, talking about tattoos and her own guilty pleasure. She tells editor Dan Lorenzo that she got her first tattoo when she was 20, and since then she has “dated lots of guys without ink, but am drawn to men and women that have tattoos. They catch my eyes first!” Asked what she watches on television, Monique replies: My guilty pleasure is reality TV and my soap opera is The Young & The Restless. I also love the Big Bang Theory, Shameless, Law & Order and Nurse Jackie.” She also puts in a plug for VividRadio.com, noting that she does a “live show every Monday called Momolicious Mondays that’s on at 12pm West/ 3pm East coast time.”

 VIVID TO RELEASE ‘GOING FOR THE GOLD’ WITH WORLD’S FIRST INTERSEX PORN STAR, TAYLOR LIANNE CHANDLER – Vivid will release Going for the Gold, featuring the world’s first intersex porn star Taylor Lianne Chandler, born with both male and female parts. The movie, to be released online January 12th, reveals her version of intimate and erotic details of an alleged affair with a world famous Olympic gold medal winner. She appeared on The Howard Stern Show last week and discussed her relationship with the athlete. News of the movie generated more headlines and extensive media coverage, including TMZ, the Bleacher Report, Elite Daily, and a story in the Mirror of London. Vivid’s Steven Hirsch said: “This is the most unique footage Vivid has ever released. We expect there to be enormous interest in Taylor. In fact, the sky is the limit on this movie. Ms. Chandler says of her sexuality: “Intersex is an umbrella term that has replaced hermaphrodite which is now considered politically incorrect. In my case, I was born with both a penis and a uterus. Even though my original birth certificate says that I was born male, I always felt that I was a female.” According to recent news reports Ms. Chandler met her Olympian on Tinder last August. “It was like a teenage love affair,” she says. “I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him.” She was working as a sign language interpreter on Capitol Hill prior to all the publicity about her affair with the high profile Olympian. In “Going for the Gold” Taylor takes us through an online courting process and then into the bedroom with her hero, revealing exactly why she was so enamored of him. “He made me feel like I was the most beautiful woman in the world. There is not one part of my body that he doesn’t know and he loved every inch of me. This movie will show just how passionate and loving our relationship was. I wanted to make this movie to celebrate this incredible time in my life and also to open the conversation about people born with both male and female genitalia so that there will be more education and understanding of what it’s about,” said Ms. Chandler.

 VIVID OFFERS PRINCELY SUM OF $500K FOR VIRGINIA ROBERTS MOVIE – Vivid made headlines around the world this week after it offered Virginia Roberts -- Prince Andrew’s alleged flame in 2001 -- up to $500,000 to make a movie revealing every toe sucking minute of her romps with the royal. Vivid chief Steven Hirsch made the offer in a letter to Ms. Roberts. He wrote to her: “Let’s make a foot fetish movie together. Foot fetish movies are some of our best sellers and with the Prince involved, it would be a sure fire hit. We would give you creative control in picking a perfect Prince look alike. A Vivid film would be an opportunity for you to tell your story as it really happened and for the world to see and understand.” The Vivid offer followed media reports about the Virginia Roberts/Prince Andrew hookup. One report told of their going to a night club called Tramp, where Andrew got Roberts a cocktail and asked her to dance. “He was the most hideous dancer I had ever seen,” she is quoted as saying. “He was grabbing my hips and he was pouring with perspiration and he had this cheesy smile.” News of the Vivid offer was covered by media outlets around the world, including Mstarz, which wrote: “It looks like hooking up with Prince Andrew could have been the most lucrative decision Virginia Roberts ever made.” Other coverage ranged from Veooz.com and Nauti-and-Nice.com, to LateNightCreep.com, So far, no response to the offer from Ms. Roberts.

SHORTANDSWEETNYC INTERVIEWS SUSAN COLVIN ON VIVID RAW TOY LINE – ShortandSweet.NYC.com editor Ralph Greco has posted a lengthy interview with Susan Colvin, President and CEO of California Exotic Novelties, about the Vivid Raw toy line. Greco writes: “As they have now for quite some time with their Vivid Raw toy line, premier adult producer Vivid and California Exotic Novelties-a toy industry leader-have been working hard to bring consumers the Vivid Raw line, a collection of ‘strokers,’ body-part molds and other goodies just perfect for couple and solo fun. Made from their Pure Silk® material, these adult products are truly unique in their construction. Having just released their Super Model doll and consistently stretching innovations with all their products I just knew a conversation with California Exotic’s Susan Colvin would prove fun indeed.” Asked if CalExotic has “one product that sells hands down over any of the others? Body part molds men gravitate towards more then others?” Susan replied: “Strokers are the best sellers, particularly lifelike vaginas with attributes like the G-spot. These toys replicate a very authentic experience.
The large lifelike asses, like the Assterbator, the Teen Assterbator, the Bootylicious, and the Baby Got Back, are proving to be huge hits too. These types of lifelike toys are always very popular. We’re seeing a great response for the Life Size Body Banger as well. Not to mention the dolls! The D.P Goddess Love Doll, the Doggy Style Diva Love Doll and the Spread Eagle Starlet are all super-popular—and the party dolls in the collection are just plain fun! The pinnacle product in the Vivid Raw Collection is the Super Model. Everyone wants to sleep with a super model, and now they can. This revolutionary doll is molded after Alanah Rae and 100% lifelike. She has inner inflation that uses the revolutionary Air Vivid inner structure, which increases or decreases air to customize her firmness. It puts the user in control. Decide how firm or soft she is when you first inflate her – pump included.” Later in the interview she said that the “Vivid Raw handheld stroker is a great porn pal, gets the job done, and feels amazingly realistic. Some things don’t need to be any more complicated than that.” As for the future, Susan said, “California Exotic Novelties and Vivid enjoy collaborating very much. We’ve already discussed new products and collections for the future. Everything is very hush-hush right now, but we’ll let you know when we’re ready with the next big thing from California Exotic Novelties and Vivid!”

 AVN’S RAVE REVIEW OF WETWORK: AVN gives Wetwork a powerful four and a half star review, with writer Sherri Shaulis praising the cast and directing. She succinctly sums up the movie as follows: “From AVN Award-Winning director Eli Cross comes a story of spies, international intrigue, assassins and prostitutes of every sort ... sexual and political. As ruthless spy Anthony faces a midlife crisis, he must decide whether to keep playing the kiss and tell, murder and mayhem game, or retire. But retire to what?” In her summary, she says, “What more could you ask for? Vivid’s Wetwork brilliantly combines all these elements in the tale of international spy Anthony (played by Steven St. Croix) who is in the midst of a midlife crisis, trying to decide whether to keep going in his dangerous occupation or retire. But just when he thinks he’s made his decision, he encounters Katherine (portrayed by Penny Pax), the artist who kills her patrons after sex. The two enter into a cat-and-mouse game that is just as captivating as the steamy sex scenes and proves that not everything is as it seems. Everything about Wetwork looks different than your traditional, run-of-the-mill porn: from the San Francisco locations to the rich cinematography, this is some of Eli Cross’ best work to date. The script, penned by Mark Logan, combined with the wonderfully composed shots—both sex and non-sex—rivals anything from Hollywood these days. But the sex … oh the sex…Wetwork is one of the most perfect blends of plot and performance we have seen in some time, and proves that adult movies can have the sophistication and standards of any mainstream movie out there today.”
