I was a slut before porn, so it’s not that I’m faking my sexuality. I guess you could say I’ve always been sexual and the sexuality I exude got me offers to do porn. The money originally motivated me to do porn, but my natural sluttiness has made me a success in the game.” She adds, “Vivid Radio is going to be a natural for me because I’m very non-intimidating. I’m that barrio girl from around the way…the one you had a crush on but could still fart in front of. I can’t wait to be in touch with my fans and meet a whole bunch of new ones.” Kristina was born and grew up in San Diego. She started her career in a customer service job for an adult web site, but then the web site moved, she lost her job and the only companies that responded to her resume were in the adult industry. She became an assistant to a photographer, who encouraged her to model, a suggestion she took several years later to great success. She began appearing in adult films in 2007 and went on to win a series of awards.

 VIVID SEX TAPE TOPIC IN ‘LOVE AND HIP HOP’ REUNION WRAP PARTY - The “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” Season 4 has wrapped, followed by what GossipOnThis.com called “the always explosive multi-part reunion special.” The famous Vivid sex tape, Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta was once again on the wrap party agenda. GossipOnThis reported: “VH1 posted a preview clip on their website showing Joseline teaming up with Mimi (yes, you read that right!) against ‘Freako’ Nikko and his estranged wife Margeaux. When the matter of the sex tape between Mimi and Nikko came up, Joseline quickly jumped to Mimi’s defense, even though the two have never seen eye to eye. In case you forgot, Mimi and Nikko made a sex tape that became a huge storyline for Season 3 and also rolled over into Season 4.”

 VIVID CABARET NYC GIRLS WATCH ASTROS BEAT YANKEES, 15-1 – Popular sports sites Bob’s Blitz and “Yardbarker” are reporting that several Vivid Cabaret NYC girls were at Yankee Stadium and witnessed the team get routed by the Astros 15-1. According to the humorous stories, the entertainers (who posed for photos during the game with a Bob’s Blitz jersey) felt bad for the Yankees and invited players to come to Vivid Cabaret NYC for some “immediate stress relief.” Said entertainer Abby: “I’ve met so many of the players when they visit the club, and I think they need to come back to Vivid Cabaret immediately and get some emergency stress relief. I think I know what they need to get over last night’s horrible game!" And Vivid Cabaret NY girl Priscilla was more specific. “I will help them erase the memory of last night’s crushing defeat by giving them lap dances that they will never forget! Haha!" The stories included such lines as “Vivid Cabaret NYC is well known for having the city’s tallest stripper pole” and “it’s a favorite spot for pro athletes from all of the major sports who like to ‘make it rain’ on the club’s gorgeous dancers.”

 TMZ CHIMES IN AGAIN ON VIVID OFFER TO KYLIE JENNER - TMZ ran a video interview with Steven Hirsch on August 21st as a follow-up to its August 17th story about Vivid offering Kylie Jenner $10-million to make a sex tape. The top gossip site reported that “Steven said he thinks “a Kylie Jenner sex tape could out perform her big sister’s tape at the box office” and…”As for Kylie, Steven knows whereof he speaks, because he’s the brains behind the Kim K sex tape video, which has made tens of millions of bucks.”

 VIVID MAKES OFFER TO KYLIE JENNER  Vivid made pop culture media headlines this week with an offer of up to $10-million to Kylie Jenner, who turned 18 last weekend, to make a sex tape with her boyfriend Tyga. News of the offer broke on TMZ, which reported: “TMZ has learned Vivid Entertainment has already fired off a letter to the freshly-minted adult, offering her a $10-million deal for a video featuring her and Tyga.” Also on top of the news was ET, which reported: “In a letter obtained by ET, Steven Hirsch, founder of Vivid Entertainment, which famously released Kim Kardashian's sex tape with Ray J in 2007, writes that Kylie and the 25-year-old rapper ‘remind us a lot of Kim and Ray J,’ adding that ‘We think a tape with both of you would do great as you are both already established celebrities. Vivid has a history of success with a Kardashian family tape,’ the letter reads. Kim and Ray J star in the best selling sex tape in the history of Vivid and we think a Kylie and Tyga tape has as much, if not more, potential,’ Hirsch suggests, adding, ‘Kim's sex tape helped launch her career and would be nothing but positive for you.’" Reports about Steven’s letter to Kylie also appeared on many sites, including Starcasm, FoxNews, Scoopnest, Inside Edition, WUSA9 and RumorFix, which reported: “With all the nearly nude selfies Kylie Jenner takes, there’s no wonder porn sites have been hitting her up for a deal ever since the day she turned 18. The reality starlet, who turned 18 years old last weekend, has been approached by (Vivid) to do a porno…” Another follow-up story on KPopStarz about photos taken during a recent trip to Mexico by Kylie and Tyga said: “The published photos of their Mexico vacation came on the heels of the report that Kylie Jenner and Tyga were offered to do sex tape by Vivid Entertainment for $10 million. And rapper Tyga, who was reported to be having money troubles since his albums were not well-received in the charts, is allegedly considering the offer.”

STEVEN HIRSCH QUOTED IN ‘PORN AND POLITICS’ STORY  Popular mainstream entertainment website TheWrap this week carried a news story on “porn and politics” that used a quote from Vivid’s Steven Hirsch. The story read in part: “’There’s no question that porn is everywhere,’ Vivid Entertainment boss Steve Hirsch told TheWrap. ‘It’s more accepted than ever before. You can watch it on the Internet, you can watch it on TV. Does that translate into political power? It may. But if it happens, it happens behind the scenes.” The Wrap story itself was covered by AVN.

 VIVID RADIO POLL ASKS ABOUT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SEX TAPE SCANDAL  More than 1,000 predominantly male listeners to VividRadio.com were asked which of the current presidential candidates was most likely to be caught up in a sex tape scandal. The clear “winner” was Republican Carly Fiorina, followed by Democrat Hillary Clinton. Listeners who called in were asked for their thoughts on a possible sex tape scandal and 89% said that if there is such an event it most likely will involve Ms. Fiorina, with 11% choosing Ms. Clinton. None of the respondents felt such a scandal would involve one of the male candidates. The all-porn-star hosts of the sexy radio broadcasts of the most listened to adult radio network had their own thoughts on a possible sex scandal. Tanya Tate said: "I find it hard to believe there is not already a Donald Trump sex tape floating around. A person with that type of over-inflated ego would probably enjoy reliving his desecration of the poor soul he managed to cajole into his bedroom. As for Hillary Clinton, I don't think she has 'a' sex tape; I think she and Bill have a library of naughty home movies." April Flores believes Republican Jeb Bush and Democrat Jim Webb would be the most likely to turn up in a sex scandal while Nicki Hunter thinks it would involve Trump and Clinton. Monique Alexander thought that Bush and Democrat Bernie Sanders were likely to turn up in a scandal. Joanna Angel said such a tape would probably involve “Hillary, because that would be some sweet revenge, wouldn't it?”   And Mary Carey, herself a former candidate for governor of California, said that she would select Marco Rubio “because he has a hot wife who was a Dolphins cheerleader, which means he might be more fun in the bedroom and he is the hottest candidate so I would definitely do a tape with him.”

 ‘BOSCH’ SERIES FILMS AT VIVID – Producers of the Amazon Prime ‘Bosch’ series used the Vivid Entertainment headquarters in Los Angeles as the setting for one of its season two episodes. The series features Titus Welliver as veteran LAPD homicide detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch deploying his unbending code of ethics and strict sense of justice. Amazon Studios vice president Roy Price says he is “very excited” about the new season of ‘Bosch,’ which is “our biggest show of the year.” The Vivid headquarters are near Universal City on Cahuenga Boulevard West.

 VIVID CABARET NEW YORK GIRLS ARE THE “ROUND CARD BEAUTIES” AT LIVE BROADWAY BOXING SHOW  Three Vivid Cabaret New York Girls wearing Vivid Cabaret logo baby tee-shirts were the "Round Card Beauties" at a recent sold-out "Broadway Boxing" show at BB Kings in Times Square. The event was taped for airing on SNY-TV (the official home of the NY Mets, NY Jets, and the Big East), and on several Comcast Sports TV stations. Rapper/actor “50 Cent” was in the audience, and posed for photos with two of the Vivid Cabaret New York girls sitting on his lap. There was wide sports and celebrity media coverage of those photos last month and a second round of coverage featuring the Vivid Cabaret NYC girls wearing their round card girl outfits is currently appearing across numerous men’s lifestyle media such as TMRZoo.

Kylie Jenner is getting flooded with 7-figure offers ... to do porn.

BangYouLater is banking on a good performance by Tyga, writing, "Your scene must be at least 22 minutes in length."
Digital Playground is making a different pitch, claiming it produces the biggest porn movies in the biz, and asking Kylie to become its front woman. The company writes, "Now that you are of legal age, we would like to offer you the opportunity to be Digital Playground's Brand Ambassador!"

They also would like her to do porn: "We know you'll be great at this and with your banging body to match, maybe you'll be interested in becoming an adult star yourself! Join DigitalPlayground.com and be welcomed into a new, hornier family."


So many offers to juggle.

 VIVID RADIO HOST SURVEY MAKES NY DAILY NEWS – Results of a survey of Vivid Radio hosts asking about sex and presidential candidates was widely reported, including an item in the New York Daily News under the headline “Trump Rated By Body Politic.” The item itself read: “A group of adult stars who host programs on Vivid Radio on SiriusXM took a little survey on whether they’d have sex with presidential hopeful Donald Trump. The 17 women polled all weighed in, with dominatrix Aiden Starr saying: ‘Ewwww! Are women attracted to him?’ The hosts were evenly divided on the question of whether he would be a good lover, with Christy Canyon saying, ‘I never met him, but if he’s a good lover it is probably because he’s rich.’”

 100% REAL TEEN SWINGERS: THEY’RE BARELY 18! DEBUTS - 100% Real Teen Swingers: They’re Barely 18! has launched on vivid.com. It’s directed by Phil Varone, the former Skid Row/Saigon Kick rock ‘n roll drummer, who is a veteran swinger of over 20 years and regularly crosses the country to find new pockets of swingers for his “100% Real Swingers” movie series for Vivid. For They’re Barely 18! Varone invited some of his young swinging friends to come together for a slumber party and to play a crazy game of “Spin the Bottle of Sex.” They’re Barely 18! features the beautiful Zoe Wood and other brand new swingers who have not been before the camera until now. Says Phil: “The new generation of swingers has no inhibitions nor do they care about what the public thinks. In the old days, anonymity was so important as swinging was considered a taboo lifestyle. With the younger swingers, this is not a concern of theirs. They are proud to be in the lifestyle and have open minds, unlike so many people who are leading two lives.” News of the new film was picked up by much of the adult media, including AVN, XBiz, XXXPeepz, TheFloatingWorld, PornValleyNews, XXXAdultStars, XCritic and others. Phil was also interviewed for radio programs, including the nationally syndicated Sean Green Show.

 FARRAH CRASHES HAMPTONS PARTY, HER SEX TAPE GETS A PLUG – A headline in RadarOnline said: “Shameless! Farrah Abraham Crashes Hamptons Party, Is Kicked Off Red Carpet.” The story went on to report that Farrah “showed up uninvited to Bella Magazine’s annual Bella Hamptons White Party on Saturday night at Beautique Southampton— and party organizers were NOT pleased.” The RadarOnline story reported on what happened and included a link to the iconic cover shot of her movie: “’Photographers just started taking photos because they figured she was just an unannounced guest,’ an onlooker tells Radar. Then publicists started yelling Stop, stop! You can’t be here! ‘Most celebrities would be embarrassed, but Farrah kept posing and smiling. She refused to leave! Eventually, after a chaotic scene, Abraham backed away from the carpet. The sex-tape star (Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom for Vivid) and her entourage were either escorted out of the party or left on their own, the onlooker adds.”

TOP ADULT STARS SAY “EWWWWW….” - A survey of hosts on Vivid Radio shows a distinct aversion to the thought of a sexual relationship with Donald Trump. Not a single respondent in a poll of the 17 hosts said she wanted to have a sexual encounter with the presidential candidate. Dominatrix Aiden Starr’s response was accompanied by this comment: “Ewwww! Are women attracted to him?” Though all of the hosts said that he was running for president to promote the Trump brand, four of the women also said he was quite serious about wanting to be president. Just one of the respondents, Mary Carey, said she would vote for him if he is nominated. The hosts were evenly divided on the question of whether he would be a good lover “or are women attracted to him because he’s rich?” “I don’t think those are mutually exclusive.  You can be rich and a good lover,” said Annie Cruz, host of “The Dirtiest Girl in the World” show. Legendary performer Christy Canyon added, “I never met him but if he’s a good lover it is probably BECAUSE he’s rich.” All of the ladies indicated they would “make Trump fix his toupee or comb-over before sex.” Tanya Tate noted, “That’s a wig? Bloody hell, I didn’t know. I just thought he was wearing a Chewbacca hat all this time.” Nicki Hunter said, “I think if you got yourself in that kind of position with a guy like Trump, he would most likely want to be the one giving orders.” Brandy Aniston had another request: “I’d make him tattoo my face on his butt.” An announcement of the results of the survey was picked up by multiple sites, including AVN, Yardbarker, BobsBlitz, XCritic, AIPDaily, and many others.

 KIM’S SEX TAPE BACK IN THE NEWS WITH HER PREGNANCY REPORTS – Reports that Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian are expecting a child have put them back in the pop culture headlines and the news reports inevitably include references to her Vivid sex tape. Yibada.com said that “West is reportedly planning a larger-than-life nude photo shoot for Kardashian to prove to the world that Kardashian is indeed pregnant for second time.” Yibada said the couple has a knack for staying in the news, noting that “In February 2007, a sex tape made by Kardashian and Ray J in 2003 was leaked to Vivid Entertainment and made Kardashian a household name. Kardashian markedly sued for rights of the tape, but later settled for $5 million.” Now fans are inquisitively waiting for the aforementioned nude photo shoot that Mr. and Mrs. West are coming up with.”

 ASH HOLLYWOOD VISITS VIVID CABARET IN NYC – Vivid Radio host and popular adult performer Ash Hollywood created a paparazzi sensation this week when she stopped by Vivid Cabaret in New York City.

Kike is an award-winning Spanish photographer and bilingual journalist who contributes to The New York Times and the Associated Press among other prestigious news outlets.

 STEVEN HIRSCH QUOTED IN ‘BUZZFEED’ STORY ON ‘SHADY MUSIC FACTS’ – Buzzfeed writer Kelley Dunlap reported this week on “the truth about Shady Music Facts.” Her story quotes Vivid’s Steven Hirsch on the often reported assertion that “Kim Kardashian’s sex tape has more views than Kanye West’s last nine music videos.” Dunlap writes: “Last year, Vivid Entertainment told TMZ that Kim Kardashian Superstar is the ‘best-selling sex tape of all time’ and has grossed over $50 million since the company first released it in 2007. Shady Music Facts implies that the tape has been viewed somewhere between 123 million and 154 million times. The truth, however, is more complicated. ‘The difference is people have to pay to watch Kim’s movie,’ Vivid founder Steve Hirsch told BuzzFeed Music. ’But, the five-minute free clip has been viewed over 300 million times. On Pornhub alone over 150 million times. And it’s still going!’ So, a more accurate version of this tweet would read: ‘The trailer for Kim Kardashian’s sex tape has more views than Kanye West’s most-viewed music video.’ Which, honestly, is way shadier.”

 GRANNY’S CASTING COUCH RELEASED ON VIVID.COM - Vivid has released Granny’s Casting Couch on vivid.com. The movie is directed by former Saigon Kick/Skid Row rock ‘n roll drummer Phil Varone, whose recent film 100% Real Senior Swingers was an instant hit and showed off his interest in sex with people no matter what their age. In Granny’s Casting Couch, Phil directed four women of a certain age who auditioned as if they were ready for any adventure. They experience the sex of a lifetime.  Sexology experts say there is no age limit on sexuality and sexual activity. The old adage ‘use it or lose it’ seems to apply to enjoying sex well into one’s later years.   The lively cast of “grannies” demonstrates enthusiastically that they know how to use it and they dispel the myth that seniors lose interest in sex. They include Ciara Blue, Kristine Cumz, Tracy Licks and Rebecca. Male actors include Brad Knight, Elijah Case, Sean Ashton and Bill Blast. Says Phil: “Age means nothing when it comes to sex and fun!”

 COURTNEY CHANNELS MARILYN MONROE, BUT VIVID HAS THE FULL PICTURE –Courtney Stodden channels Marilyn Monroe as she flashes her bum from behind a towel in a recent photo shoot she posted on her Twitter account. Courtney can keep posing in sexy shots...but only Vivid has her in her birthday suit, in the recently released Courtney Uncovered: The Stodden Sex Tape. The Daily Mirror of London reported on one recent photo shoot in which Courtney recently posed on Marilyn's bed, noting that she “looks an exact replica of her idol on a picture she shared on Twitter. It features the 20-year-old rocking Marilyn's patented hairdo and beauty spot while posing in front of a leafy garden backdrop. Courtney appears in her element on the black and white picture, in which she hides her modesty with a cleverly-placed towel. But even with the material covering her front there's just the slightest sighting of the reality star's bum on show. The picture was shared with the model's 189,000 followers.  It was captioned: ‘Who said a little skin was such a sin?’ We're sure even Marilyn would be impressed with the effort.” She’d be even more impressed with the major sales the sex tape is generating. Also this week, Egotastic.com reported on Courtney’s recent string bikini photo shoot. Bill Swift wrote: “Courtney has been bombarding her social media accounts of late with revealing photos of herself in bikinis and other wardrobe, reminding the world her jugs are too big to fit into overhead compartments or under the seat in front of them. She is a rather impressively curved woman. I'm not sure that bikini was designed for her body. I'm not sure any bikinis are. Still, you've got to wear one. Except in that Vivid tape, of course. Enjoy”

JOSH GETS A TWITTER ACCOUNT, VIVID MAKES NEWS - Mackenzie McKee used Twitter to let the world know that Josh McKee now has his own Twitter account and her disclosure immediately made news, with plenty of mention of Vivid. Wetpaint writer Mehera Bonner reported that Josh “seems to be using Twitter as a means to bestow inspirational nuggets of wisdom upon his followers (such as get a good hold and take charge! Have confidence in your abilities to achieve and conquer!’). Mackenzie and Josh have been making headlines for the past few weeks thanks to their alleged sex tape being released to Vivid Entertainment — they even made a trip out to Los Angeles to talk to Vivid reps! Hopefully this Twitter account will be a good way for Josh to set some rumors straight.”

 FLESHBOT FEATURES 100% REAL SWINGERS - TENNESSEE - Fleshbot writer Holly Kingstown reported this week on 100% Real Swingers—Tennessee. She writes: “Rock and roll director Phil Varone shares Tennessee's private nudist resort Pandora's Forest in this lusty edition of his amateur swingers series, 100% Real Swingers—Tennessee. ‘I’ve been shooting the 100% Real Swingers series for over three years now, and even I was amazed by what I was able to capture. Pandora’s Forest had one of the best and hottest groups of swingers I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, filming, and having fun with. This movie has set a bar that I don’t know will ever be beat,’ said Varone of his time shooting this edition. I have to say that this one looks like a true blast. Here is why Varone thought this trip was so much fun:  Skip Dollywood and try to get to Pandora's Forest!”

 

 VIVID STAYS IN THE NEWS WITH UPCOMING ‘LOVE & HIP HOP ATLANTA’ SEASON - Season 4 of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” is about to get underway and Mimi Faust’s Vivid sex tape seems to be mentioned in every advance report on the VH1 show. FranchiseHerald.com reporter Sherylyn Toda wrote this week: “The upcoming "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" season 4 reunion is going to be a blast!” Toda added that Mimi’s ex-boyfriend Stevie J, who is now with Joseline Hernandez “reportedly has his own bombs to explode during the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Season 4 reunion special. Apparently Mimi's partner in the controversial Vivid sex tape, Nikko London (Smith), released last year, is a bisexual.
Stevie revealed that he holds incriminating evidence that will prove Nikko London is indeed a bisexual, Fashion N Style reported. During the reunion shoot, Stevie explained his plans on how to expose London's sexuality.“

 XBIZ FEATURES MICHAEL KLEIN INTERVIEW - News of Michael Klein’s appointment as president of Vivid Entertainment’s broadcast and television division has received extensive coverage. Among the top business media carrying the story about Michael’s new position were XBiz, AVN, MultiChannelNews, TheStreet, Marketwatch, Reuters, Bloomberg and many others. XBiz.com posted an extensive interview with Michael just days after his appointment. The interview by Bob Johnson begins: “Only a handful of adult industry executives can list three or more top tier companies on their resumes. And even less can point to major accomplishments that have impacted those businesses during their tenure. Michael H. Klein is one captain that has done both. Having held top spots with Playboy, Hustler and now as president of Vivid Entertainment's broadcast and Internet division, Klein’s experience and knowledge — along with major business coups — have continuously positioned him as one of adult’s luminaries regularly asked to share his in-depth smarts and strategies in broadcasting, programming and content monetization at numerous industry events, panels and seminars.” Michael said his “main tasks will be to grow Vivid TV beyond its already impressive rollout and make it the top adult broadcasting company in the world, while at the same time improve the Vivid Internet business.” He said his job will be made easier because “Vivid represents the future. It was never a print-based company. It has a fabulous archive, the most award-winning movies in the industry and, of course, unmatched celebrity sex tapes.”

 MIMI’S ‘INFAMOUS SEX TAPE’ MAKES FASHION NEWS – Mimi Faust’s Vivid sex tape Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta continues its best seller run and continues to make news. VH1 has been covering the Mimi story as has the fashion media. FashionNStyle.com is the latest to write about Mimi and her sex tape with a report in its “The Eye” section under the headline “LHHATL Newbie Margeaux Simms Says Mimi Faust And Nikko Smith Were Using Each Other.” The story reports that actor (and Nikko’s wife) Margeaux Simms claims Mimi Faust “is still playing the victim in sex tape with Nikko Smith. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta newbie blasts cast mate and husband for using each other.” Reprising a VH1 story, FashionStyle.com says Margeaux believes “Mimi still has a lot more owning up to do before the air clears between the two of them…however, Margeaux doesn't seem to think the infamous moment in the sex tape where Mimi was seen hanging from a shower rod was something the VH1 star was forced into creating. ‘People have different versions of the truth. There's like one, two and in the middle there's really the truth. I was annoyed, because are you saying he forced you to hold on to the rod? I just couldn't understand…I'm the type of girl I think [is] brutally honest to the point where it's 2015... like I watch porn, there are tons of women that do it and there's nothing wrong with it. Just do it and own it, but I feel like doing it then saying that he forced you to do it or it was all his idea... I'm just going to stay completely calm and just wait ‘til they're finished. Then maybe we can have a conversation.’"

 ADULT SUPER STAR TORI BLACK AT VIVID GENTLEMEN’S CLUB HOUSTON —Gorgeous adult super star Tori Black is the headliner this week at Vivid Gentlemen’s Club in Houston. The club is a licensee of Vivid and is located at 2618 Winrock Blvd., just off Westheimer Rd., in Houston’s Briargrove area. Tori is the only woman to receive the prestigious AVN Female Performer of the Year award twice. The curvy 5’9” brunette was born in Seattle and started her adult career in Fort Lauderdale while she was attending college and looking for part time work. She sent photos of herself to a local talent agency and the rest is history. Additional recognition that she’s garnered includes the XRCO Award for Female Performer of the Year, Maxim Magazine naming her as one of the 12 top female stars in the industry, CNBC noting that she was one of the dozen most popular stars in the adult business, plus awards from CAVR, F.A.M.E., Galaxy, XBiz and NightMoves magazine. Tori says she has taken her many awards “as more of a personal character reference than anything else. There are a lot of beautiful women out there and a lot of women who are heightened in their sexuality. I think the reason I got these awards was because of my personality, who I am and what I stand for. It’s an honor and it’s nice to feel appreciated and celebrated. Of course I was humbled by it.”

 FLESHBOT WAYBACK REVIEW OF BOBBY SOX – Fleshbot.com reached back nearly 20 years this week for a review of the famous Vivid movie Bobby Sox. The headline on the Fleshbot story by Holly Kingstown read: Monster Porno Was A Monster Hit.” The Throwback Thursday article went on to say, “Bobby Sox was the smash hit of 1997 and it still is one incredible movie.  Directed by one of porn's true but tormented geniuses Paul Thomas, it made the list of AVN's 500 Greatest Films in 2005 and at the 1997 AVN Awards, it won awards for Best Director to Thomas, Best Screenplay to writer Raven Touchstone, Best Editing, Best Film, Best Actor to Jamie Gillis in his role of a drunk, heart of gold movie producer (man, I miss him so much) and Best Actress to Shanna McCullough.    Nikki Tyler was the Vivid Girl who headlined this tale of the making of a monster movie in a small town, where they cast locals to find a big star and help McCullough's struggling movie theater.  Tyler and Jenna Jameson were in a long-term relationship way back in the day and watching her in this, you an really get a sense for what Tyler had going on.  So much beauty and wow, she loved to f*ck.  Jon Dough is in this cast--wow, I miss him so much and he deserved a lot better than the way that he ended his life.  I really can't recommend watching this one enough.  It's got amazing players in f*cking hot sex scenes.  Man, it makes me happy.”

 SHORTANDSWEETNYC GIVES VIVID CABARET ANOTHER RAVE REVIEW – Short and Sweet writer Ralph Greco is a big fan of Vivid Cabaret in New York City. He’s just posted a new review of the club as part of THE SEX FILES: Summer Series, ‘Up On The Rooftop’ at Vivid, Part 2. Greco opens his article: “’I overdid it at the beach and got a bad sunburn, so I took a few days off from dancing. When I came back to the club, it was just in time for this great cigar party on the roof deck,’ Kimmie relates. She is one of the gorgeous strippers at Vivid Cabaret NYC and the perfect person to give us a behind-the-scenes (or more precisely an ‘up on high’) view of what’s happening at the upscale cabaret. Continuing my series “Up On The Rooftop” from the upscale gentleman’s cabaret at 61 W 37th street, I wanted to get the skinny from one of the wonderful women who work at Vivid Cabaret NYC to tell us more about the unique rooftop there. As you will recall from my piece from a few weeks ago, I gave you my impression of the outside top floor lounge of the club, but hearing what the rooftop lounge and the club itself is like from a woman like Kimmie is certainly more interesting. \I was drinking champagne with a bunch of celebrities, but I can’t tell you their names, because we respect everyone’s privacy,’ Like everybody else at the club, Kimmie is super friendly. Of course she doesn’t just restrict herself to the night time summer air (or winter, as the rooftop has heaters so it is open year round) of the uppermost area of Vivid’s club. As Kimmie says of one of the cabaret’s most interesting features: ‘I love the pole at Vivid Cabaret. It’s the tallest stripper pole in New York. Right now, I can only make it up half-way, but I’m taking a pole dancing class and by the end of the summer I’ll have licked all my fears and I’ll be up there on top. Then she adds with a wicked smile and wink: ‘I hope all the shortandsweetnyc readers will come see me.’ With its 3 floors, HD TV’sa, 4 stages and that infamous 25 foot pole, Vivid Cabaret NYC is a top destination for those celebs Kimmie will not mention, as well as anybody looking for a good time. In fact, the club is so well respected that new girls come in all the time to dance there, become experts on the poll, party on the roof, just absorb the whole Vivid vibe.”
