 VIVID IN NOVEMBER MAXIM MAGAZINE – Vivid Entertainment was featured in the November issue of Maxim Magazine.  Page 16 of the popular men’s monthly featured a photo of Maria Menounos and an article entitled “Dick-tionary” based on information provided by Vivid.  “Don’t put your, uh, foot in your mouth when meeting porn stars,” Maxim advises, “The guys at Vivid Entertainment are here to help you fit in (so to speak).” The article gives definitions of six terms commonly used on adult movie sets, including: “Spinner: A small girl who could presumably be spun around on a penis.  C Light: A light used specifically for a crotch shot. And Commercial Scene: Industry term for a sex scene.”

 XCRITIC LIKES NEW VARONE MOVIE – reviewer Apache Warrior recommends the newest Phil Varone/Vivid movie, Swinging American Style: Vegas or Bust. Apache notes that Varone’s “philosophy for this series is all about showing what real swingers do when they get together.” In recommending the film, Apache says,”Phil is a good sexual swordsman…he can easily transition himself into a full-fledge male performer. His confidence and easy-going behavior make his screwing performances run smoothly and exciting. Viewers are going to enjoy the female eye candy in this flick, especially Siri.”

 THE DARK KNIGHT XXX SCORES BIG WITH ADULT DVD TALK – Adult DVD Talk heaped praise on Axel Braun’s The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody.  Reviewer Fu_q gives it four and a half stars and says, “Trickery, lies, and deceit rule the day in The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody—an overall-excellent production from director Axel Braun and Vivid Video.” He concludes his review by writing, “In all, Axel Braun and company have pulled off another massive parody here that—far more often than not—is quite successful. The cast is hot, the plot and acting are strong, and the production values are top-notch. This one is certainly worthy…especially for fans of Braun, porn parodies, comic book movies, and / or Batman.”

 BRAND NEW FACES IS “STILL FANTASTIC” – Roger T. Pipes reviewed Brand New Faces 34 recently for RogReviews (on October 15th, although the movie was released in 2011), giving it seven stars overall and noting, “This collection is filled with fresh faces, hot bodies and some potential stars. As always, the interviews are long and usually pretty interesting. Somehow he gets something good out of just about every girl. Sexually the movie is pretty solid. There aren’t a lot of super star performances, but each girl brings something good to the table.”  Roger adds, “Courtney Taylor is the most porn ready babe in the flick. She has the looks and the banter as well as sexual energy that we love. If you like new girls and really dig it raw, this is still a fantastic series.”
