 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.

Eventually, after a chaotic scene, Abraham backed away from the carpet.
