VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR NOVEMBER 4, 2014
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.”
