 XCRITIC INTERVIEWS ALEXIS AMORE – In the latest of its series of interviews with VividRadio hosts, XCritic.com talks with Alexis Amore. Apache Warrior begins his article: “Ever since Alexis first appeared on screen in her initial sex scene in that double penetration Vivid tryst, fans started to say ;That's Amore!; She wound up as a very memorable sexy and spicy performer. I admire that Ms. Amore has had a lengthy and diverse career. Now, she has her own Vivid Radio show called ‘That's Amore!’ It's nice to see things come full circle for our darling Alexis.” Alexis says of the show, “I want it to be fun and to be able to talk about anything. But also help listeners with any sex advice and have fun topics.” Asked what makes people sexy, she commented: “Eyes, hygiene, lol. I love a guy to be a gentleman and kinky in the bedroom. Same with girls: sexy, classy but a porn star when her man needs her to be.” At a personal level, she says her favorite pastimes are, “hockey, WWE, foodie, Fútbol and football, basketball, well you get it …I love sports. I loveeeeeee cooking and baking. Big on family. I live the beach life.” She also invited readers to check out her show on Vivid radio Wednesdays 1-2 PT and noted that the link to it is www.VividRadio.com.

 FRENCH CANAL PLUS SHOW FEATURES STEVEN HIRSCH – Vivid chief Steven Hirsch was interviewed for the “Journal du Hard” program on Canal-Plus, a leading French television network. Steven told show host Sebastien Thoen “There is no question that more women than ever are watching adult films. They want to watch the same thing that I want to watch; good, hot sex.” He also noted that Vivid does “super hero parody movies, which nobody else does. It gives us an edge and makes us a little bit different “ In answer to a question about whether adult movies will ever be truly “mainstream,” Steven said: “For the last 30 years we’ve been talking about the ‘mainstreaming of porn.’ When it all comes together…when Hollywood accepts, we can watch it in theatres. But guess what? I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

 XCRITIC.COM SAYS WETWORK IS “EXCEPTIONAL” – XCritic.com says Wetwork “is one to watch.” The site adds: “This year, Vivid Entertainment's big fall feature is Wetwork from director Eli Cross. Wetwork brings together two of the strongest acting performers in the biz: Penny Pax and Steven St. Croix in a movie that's a spy vs spy sex-tacular thriller. We've had a chance to get an early sneak peek and it's exceptional. For now, Vivid has a trailer up for Wetwork that's sizzling hot. It's this week's clip of the week. The Vivid.com description of the movie begins: “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.”

  ALEXIS AMORE AND APRIL FLORES GET VIVID RADIO SHOWS – Alexis Amore and April Flores will join the roster of Vivid Radio Network talent with their own new programs. Alexis’ new show, “That’s Amore,” started this Wednesday (from 1-2pm PT) and April’s show, “Voluptuous Life,” starts on Thursday, November 6 ( also from 1-2 pm PT) Alexis and April can be heard on the SiriusXM app, channel 791 and on VividRadio.com. Peruvian born Alexis is a raven-haired beauty who started modeling for Nordstrom at age 15. Years later, 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, which hired her in 1999 for her first film, The Watcher 6. This led to more movies and later her work as a director.

“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 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. “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.”


 MEN’S HEALTH FEATURES VIVID RADIO – Popular website MensHealth.com has posted a feature article on Vivid Radio. The article by Chantelle Tibbals begins: “What You Do In the Privacy of Your Bedroom, They Do Live on Sirius Radio -- It's just like any other radio call-in show, except some of the participants aren't wearing clothes.” She was a guest on the Tanya Tate Show, which, she says,” is hosted by the ‘reigning queen of filthy talk.’” It is, Tibbals reports, “a wank show. That's right, a wank show. A show where listeners call in with the specific intent of masturbating while having a conversation with the host. I knew all this going in. And I thought I was prepared. But there's really no way to mentally steel yourself for talking to a man as he pleasures himself while you're both live on the radio. With 25.6 million subscribers and $3.8 billion in annual revenue, SiriusXM is the largest radio company in the world. At present, they boast over 175 unique channels, one of which is Vivid Radio, which launched just last year. (Vivid’s) platform features an extensive lineup of naughty and lighthearted shows, all of which are hosted by porn stars.” Tibbals also reports, “according to Farrell Hirsch, Vice-President and General Manager of Vivid Radio, the Tanya Tate Show gets approximately 1,000 calls throughout the course of the hour-long program. Let me say that again: 1,000 calls. In sixty minutes. That's 1,000 guys (and maybe ladies?) looking to masturbate on the air, while other guys (and maybe ladies?) are ostensibly listening. ‘Sometimes people forget why we're here,’ Hirsch told me. ‘But we have to remember, it's about sex. It's to get these [callers] off, and Tanya knows that. And she's great at it.’"


 AVN ON DIRTY LITTLE SEX DOLLS: “SPECTACULAR” – AVN.com gives Dirty Little Sex Dolls a 4.5 star rating in a new review posted this week. Reviewer Juan Stud says, “Practically everything about this title is superb. Gracie Glam is in fine form in one of her last, and possibly nastiest, turns in front of the camera before taking an extended hiatus. Former Vivid Girl Allie Haze always turns in an amazing performance, and her threesome with James Deen and Mr. Pete is as sizzling as a threesome can get without anal or double penetration. But with three such top-tier performers together in one scene, you simply can’t expect anything less.” Stud concludes: “With B. Skow and his crew’s genius behind the camera, and the cast of only top talent, the results here are spectacular.”

DIDG ANNOUNCES VIVID AGREEMENT – Publicly traded Digital Development Group (DIDG) launched the Erotic Film Network (EFN) by announcing it had signed agreement with Vivid Entertainment. The company distributed a press release that was picked up by business and mainstream media throughout the country.

Vivid's library encompasses over three decades, focused on the videos of premiere adult stars, parodies, as well as multiple forms of adult lifestyle. The programming will be edited for mainstream Internet. ‘This bold move towards the adult world is not a change, but an expansion,’ said enthused company CEO, Martin W. Greenwald. ‘The Erotic Film Network (EFN) is our platform to bring diverse adult content to the Internet…the network allows us to become the hub within the industry. The rights we have acquired, not only affords us the ability to reach U.S. viewers, but also stream content worldwide.’"

VIVID CABARET NYC HELPS RICK’S CABARET – RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as Rick’s Cabaret International) has released its latest quarterly nightclub sales, noting positive growth that was aided by strong sales at Vivid Cabaret NYC.

 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.

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.
