ROCK STAR PHIL VARONE DIRECTS A VOYEUR'S DREAM FOR VIVID -- Rock 'n roll drummer Phil Varone invites viewers to have a raw, inside look at the actual life style of real swingers "Swinging American Style: Texas F*ck 'Em,” his newest film for Vivid. The voyeuristic movie featuring regular, everyday people who happen to love couple swapping, is the first in a "swinging" series and is available online at vivid.com today and will be available in stores across the country on May 1st. The swingers were assembled by Varone, the notorious rock drummer formerly of Saigon Kick and Skid Row who also starred on VH1's Celebrity Sex Rehab. As sexual ringmaster Varone varies the theme of the popular card game Texas Hold 'Em as he gives viewers an all-access peek at the lives of real swingers exercising their sexual freedoms right now in America. Varone's voyeuristic directing style allows the viewer to feel as if they were standing in the same room watching and being part of all the action. Knowing that most people have little experience in front of a camera other then personal home video. A taboo activity for many, to others swinging is a rewarding way of life.
"Swinging American Style" goes behind locked doors to show viewers what happens when like-minded couples and singles come together to explore their sexual desires and fantasies. The movie reveals how they find each other and what really happens when they get together, with no secrets left unexplored says Varone. "Swinging is alive and thriving in America. Anyone who has been thinking about joining in shouldn't hesitate as there are increasingly more of us who want to share our sensuous sides with you, and this movie gives you a pretty good idea of the fun that we are all enjoying." Varone selected swingers Maia, Kristal, Sherri, Jessica, Jerome, Ryan and Kevin to join him in the movie.

IO9.COM FEATURED AVENGERSXXX TRAILER -- The popular futuristic site io9.com gave fans an advance look at the trailer for Vivid’s adult spoof AvengersXXX: A Porn Parody. The power-packed movie features parodies of eleven super heroes who do battle against The Hulk (Jordan Lane). "AvengersXXX: A Porn Parody" is the latest release from the Vivid SuperXXXHeroes imprint. Directed by multi-award winner Axel Braun, it debuts online at vivid.com on May 1st and will be in stores nationwide on May 8, but io9.com posted the trailer link on April 23rd. io9.com is a highly rated daily web publication that covers science, science fiction and the future. For a site that believes it's "time to get ready for tomorrow, AvengersXXX is perfect, as Braun weaves an exciting dynamic between the superheroes as they take on The Hulk, and have electrifying sex while doing so. The cast includes former pro-wrestling champion Chyna, who plays She-Hulk and shares a torrid sex scene with the God of Thunder. Other roles include Iron Man (Dale Dabone), Black Widow (Brooklyn Lee), Thor (Brendon Miller), Spider-Woman (Jenna Presley), Ms. Marvel (Lexi Swallow), Sharon Carter (Phoenix Marie), The Scarlet Witch (Danni Cole), Nick Fury (Lexington Steele), Hawkeye (Eric Masterson), and Spider-Man (Xander Corvus).
The trailer also merited the attention of AintItCool.com, a hip site that talked about the movie in a story with the headline: “Spider-Man Is In THE AVENGERS!! Well, He's In This AVENGERS, At Least!!” The story noted, “Not long ago, Axel Braun brought forth an XXX rated parody of STAR WARS - the teaser for which (along with one of AICN's most entertaining Talkbacks of all time) can be found HERE. Now, Axel's back...this time focusing his bizarre brand of porny parody to THE AVENGERS. Say what you will about this undertaking as a whole, but two elements stand out in this SUITABLE FOR WORK trailer: 1) Lexington Steele very probably will make a better Nick Fury than Hasselhoff... and 2) that last shot of Spider-Man has more chutzpah than anything we've seen thus far from the forthcoming AMAZING SPIDER-MAN picture.” The movie was also the XCritic.com Clip of the Week, and was featured on the FitPerez.com website. Perez commented: Vivid Entertainment always has the best porn parodies! We mean we've heard…Anyway…the porno version of The Avengers was directed by award-winning director Axel Braun, from an original script by Braun and Mark Logan. The movie actually looks pretty dang funny.” DISCLAIMER: AVENGERSXXX: A PORN PARODY IS A PARODY MOVIE.

CHYNA IN PRE-EXXXOTICA MIAMI BEACH INTERVIEW – Vivid star Chyna has given a pre-Exxxotica Miami Beach interview to Miami.com, the popular Florida website in which she “Talks about the transition from the ring to under the sheets.” Exxxotica Miami gets underway May 18th at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Reporter Bob Emanuel Jr. writes: You probably remember Chyna, the female wrestling champion, but did you know she is now a star in the world of adult films?” In her interview with Emanuel, Chyna comments on her role as She-Hulk in AvengersXXX: A Porn Parody, noting, “Any comic book movie is cool to be in, no matter what it is. I loved Wonder Woman and that type of superhero stuff, mostly watching it on television.” Asked if it was “awkward” to move from pro wrestling to adult films, Chyna said, “The funny thing is, when I first decided to do a movie, I didn’t tell anybody because, in my mind, I was like, ‘What are people going to think?’ Then two seconds later, ‘I don’t care. I’m just going to wait and see, wait for it to happen.’ I get more respect from people now than I ever have because it’s gone beyond the wrestling. I think that people are just understanding, whether they like what I’m doing or they don’t which apparently most people do, you have to respect that. It’s a choice that I made finally. I’m treated well. I’m happy, and it shows. I think that, in some ways, I’m just starting to get it myself, sending a message to people. I thought people are really going to beat me up over this. People talk bad about all kinds of stuff, but I get so much respect and love from people everywhere. It’s really quite amazing…Vivid actually was my first opportunity to really allow me to shine in that way. And it didn’t hurt my sex life either. It got started again.”
