 LOS ANGELES  (October 21, 2014) – Adult stars Alexis Amore and April Flores will join the roster of gorgeous talent at the Vivid Radio Network with their own new programs. Alexis’ new show, “That’s Amore,” will debut on Wednesday, October 22 from 1-2pm PT and April’s show, “Voluptuous Life,” starts on Thursday, November 6 from 1-2pm PT. Listen on the SiriusXM app, channel 791 and on VividRadio.com.

 Peruvian born Alexis moved with her family to the U.S. when she was a child and settled in Redondo Beach, CA. The raven-haired beauty started modeling for Nordstrom at 15. Years later, with 48-24-32 measurements, she met adult stars Jewel De Nyle and Alexa Rae and learned about their positive experiences in the industry. She was intrigued and contacted Vivid Entertainment, which hired her in November 1999 for her first film, The Watcher 6. This led to more movies and later her work as a director  Alexis formerly penned a sex advice column for Oye, a mainstream magazine in Peru, and was a columnist for AVN Insider. She has been the subject of various stories in Hispanic media and is the winner of the NightMoves Fan Choice Best Actress Award as well as the Fan Choice Best Feature Entertainer Award.  “I’m very happy and excited to be working with Vivid. It was where I started my career and it’s definitely a pleasure to be back,” said Alexis.

 Multi-award winning adult actress April Flores is the number one BBW star in the world. She is also a muse, a model and a feminist, but that’s barely scratching the surface of this fearless voluptuous star with brilliant scarlet hair. She is a proponent of the LGBTQ community, a sex-positive activist, an outspoken advocate of body diversity, a glamorous art model, avid kink fan (both sub and dom), and all around powerful woman.  April has posed and been interviewed for dozens of magazines and appeared in countless films of every genre, from mainstream to queer, kinky and artsy. Her mere presence and powerful sexuality speaks volumes about her activism for body diversity.  “I am thrilled about joining Vivid Radio and its wonderful team,” said April. “I look forward to engaging with my fans on a whole new level and connecting with a new audience who may not yet know me. I know this is going to be a fun, sexy intimate, entertaining and informative experience in this medium.”

For a limited time fans can get a 30-day free trial to listen to all the sexy fun on vividradio.com.

<![CDATA[VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR OCTOBER 17, 2014]]> /news/2014-10-17/vivid-studio-insider-for-october-17-2014/ /news/2014-10-17/vivid-studio-insider-for-october-17-2014/  VIVID WINS FOUR NIGHTMOVES AWARDS! —Vivid won awards in both the Fan Choice and Editor’s Choice categories at the 22nd annual NightMoves ® Awards held in Tampa this past. Vivid was recognized with the Editor’s Choice award as the Best Production Company in the adult entertainment industry. Vivid’s movie The New Behind the Green Door won the Fan Choice award for Best Feature Production; Captain America XXX won Best Parody-Superhero Fan Choice award and Spiderman XXX 2 got the Editor’s Choice award in the same category. Both movies were directed by Axel Braun, who also won Best Director-Parody. He is a member of the NightMoves Hall of Fame. “We are delighted that both reviewers and fans have honored us with this prestigious recognition. The NightMoves Awards weekend attracts more top talent and gets bigger and better and is more fun each year. It’s been exciting for us to be part of it,” said Steven Hirsch, Vivid’s founder/co-chairman.

 BILL ASHER TALKS TO MULTICHANNEL NEWS ABOUT RESURGENCE OF ADULT – Vivid Co-chairman Bill Asher was interviewed last week by MultiChannel News about the state of today’s adult on-demand business. Bill’s comments to interviewer R. Thomas Umstead included these thoughts: “For a while, people were panicking that the sky was falling with regard to adult content on TV because you have free porn on the Internet — it’s hard not to find it. The numbers were coming down on the TV side. But all of the sudden they leveled off over the past couple of years. There are a lot of people who want to get free porn, and I get it, but if you make unique and good, quality content, you don’t have to give it away free on the Internet…It’s almost like there’s a resurgence of adult content on television. It sounds kind of funny, but now it’s more high-end porn, if you will. There are two kinds of consumers and two kinds of marketplaces: the free stuff on the Internet, where it’s used to generate traffic to sell to other sites, and there is quality adult content. The number of people who watch tons and tons of stuff on the Internet has leveled off. I think people are coming back to more traditional TV viewing.” And of these viewers, Bill said: “First, there are the older and wealthier viewers who are traditional TV viewers that continue to view adult [content] on television. But then there’s a general audience who really enjoy adult. Our generation equated that with the dirty old guy in the raincoat. What you’re seeing now are young people who enjoy adult content openly, and they talk about it amongst each other — it’s just a different attitude around adult. They look at it as part of their sex life. They will pay for exactly what they want to watch.”  

 100% REAL SWINGERS: BIG BEAR 2 NOW OUT ONLINE AND WILL BE IN STORES OCT. 28 -- 100% Real Swingers: Big Bear 2 is now online at www.vivid.com and will be in stores nationwide on October 28th. In the new movie Phil Varone, America’s best known swinger, hops into an RV with his friends and heads to the mountains around Big Bear Lake in California for another round of swapping under the sequoias. It’s the latest in Vivid’s popular 100% Real Swingers series. Varone’s philosophy is all about showing what real swingers do when they get together. The series showcases totally authentic members of “The Lifestyle.” Maybe it’s the mountain air or the excitement of having sex before a camera, but these swingers are ready for non-stop action and let no fantasy go unfulfilled while Phil’s camera catches all of it for his fans.

 VIVID TOLAUNCH VIVIDTV EUROPE NOVEMBER 1ST – Vivid will launch VividTV Europe on November 1st. The new 24/7 channel will deliver Vivid programming combined with the highest quality European content available. The new channel will compliment Vivid’s existing broad European Video On-Demand distribution. VividTV Europe will be led by Tony Tony Cochi, Executive Vice President Worldwide Distribution of VividTV, and Stephen E. Walter, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Canada and Europe. Bill Asher, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, said distribution deals with several major European operators will be announced shortly. VividTV launched its 24/7 linear channel in 2013 and it quickly became the top performing adult service in over 70 million homes across North and South America. Vivid extended its US service to Europe in April of this year. Bill said in a press release: “In order for any channel to truly be successful it must have a local flavor and appeal to the constituency of the territory. VividTV Europe is designed specifically for the European market. The channel will deliver the most popular content in Europe, both through acquisitions as well as programming from Vivid Entertainment, owner of the largest single adult studio archive,” said Mr. Asher. He noted that the new European service comes on the heels of last week’s announcement of a Vivid partnership with VanessaTV in Canada to create a truly local channel. VividTV Canada launches October 28. Announcement of the new channel made headlines in both broadcast and general media in Europe, with stories in the press from Germany to Spain, Greece and other countries across the continent.

 AVN HIGH ON MIMI & NIKKO – A new review was posted last week on AVN of Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. Reviewer Dirty Bob gave the movie high marks.: “The Vivid sex tapes continue,” he wrote, “this time with a black couple from Atlanta well known for their VH1 series Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. This is not a hidden tape; rather, judging by the actions, camera angles, lighting and the rest, they obviously planned this out—undoubtedly for the publicity but also, quite evident from the way they hit it off in the sack and elsewhere, there is something there between Mimi and Nikko. There is no hesitation. Mimi’s mouth takes to Nikko's cock with a familiarity that hints of off-camera play. Nikko’s fingers flirt with her ass in teasing ways that suggest rather than promise anal action.   And Mimi looks great. This is one couple who don’t need to keep wailing to the high heavens to make it clear that they are enjoying every thrust and slurp. They go right into a trio of segments that culminate in what could arguably be the most fun, and the sexiest, of their pelvic interludes: the shower. Well done.”

 SINFUL MAGAZINE LAUNCHES TILA TEQILA UNCORKED CONTEST – Readers of the Sinful Magazine website are getting a chance to win a DVD copy of Vivid's Tila Tequila Uncorked, Declaring it one of the “magazine’s favorite celebrity sex tapes,” Sinful noted that Tila has “appeared in magazines all over the globe including Playboy, Penthouse and Maxim. Or you might have seen her on MTV series ‘Shot at Love’, but see her in a whole new way when VIVID Entertainment brings you Tila Tequila Uncorked. Not just another celebrity sex tape, this is three way lesbian action. A wild night of toys, panties, hotel rooms, and a camera, and watch Tila Tequila show her nasty side.  For the next couple of weeks, SINFUL MAGAZINE will count down its favorite celebrity sex tapes and a lucky winner will win a DVD copy of that celebrity sex tape, courtesy of VIVID Entertainment. For your chance to win a DVD copy of VIVID's Tila Tequila Uncorked, please fill out the online form at sinfulmagazine.com. 

  411 MANIA SURVEYS JOANNA ANGEL AND TERA PATRICK – Movie and TV columnist Steve Gustafson of popular website 411 Mania has posted “Celebrity Surveys” with Vivid Radio personalities Joanna Angel and Tera Patrick. The series begins: “This week we have a special treat. I sent a simple questionnaire to the lovely and beautiful women of Vivid Radio! You remember Vivid, right? The adult film company that makes the hottest films and breaks the hottest stars; that made Kim Kardashian and celebrity sex tapes a cultural phenomenon. Vivid has turned its focus to radio, with its trademark brand of energy, enthusiasm, excitement and innovation. The ladies cover the entire world of adult, with girls that’ll blow you away and talk that’ll blow your mind. I can speak from experience. I’ve appeared on several of their shows and it was wild. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing their answers with you. WARNING! These answers are NOT for the faint of heart.” In his first question to Joanna, Gustafson asks her what the first thing she would do if she were president of the U.S. Her reply: “I would make it a law to pay for your porn.” She also reveals two secrets about herself:  “I’m afraid of the dark. I can also speak Hebrew fluently. Most people don’t know either of those things.” He asked Tera the funniest thing that has happened to her on a porn set. Her answer:  “I was chased out of a home location by a knife wielding wife who’s husband didn’t tell her he was renting their house as a porn shoot location. She didn’t catch me!”
