So I’m in the middle of a debate with a friend of mine about new technologies and the porn industry. I had seen this new thing on Fame Registry about the top porn stars of myspace and now the top porn stars of Twitter. That is really what had spakred the entire disusion in the first place. She was going on about Vivid and how great they were, blah blah. As my eyes started to glaze over listening to her love of all things Vivid I flashed back to the top twitter list and you know what I remember not seeing? There are no Vivid girls on the Twitter porn star list. There are all these porno chicks who use twitter like Jesse Jane, Jessica Drake, Sasha Grey, Tori Black, Marie Luv, Teagan Presley, Alektra Blue, Stoya, but not one Vivid girl. There is no Sunny Leone, Meggan Mallone, Nikki Jayne, Savanna Samson, or Hanna Hilton. There aren’t even any former Vivid girls like Monique Alexander or Lanny Barby. So if Vivid is so with the times and up on new technology where are all the Vivid girls on Twitter?
It then got me thinking about their use of MySpace. They really only started using MySpace less than a year ago. I don’t understand how such an obvious marketing tool took them so long to be a part of but ya it’s true. Vivid’s MySpace page only came to life a short time ago. They did temporarily have one posted, but not maintained, it just sort of sat there dead by a contractor some time ago but in the end their use of MySpace really only came about just recently.
And what about other social networking sites like YouTube which screams for some movie trailers? Despite my best efforts I could find no official Vivid channel however I did find one for Digital Playground. They have not only movie trailers but not only that, I also learned that Jesse Jane is “the princess of dirty talk” and I even got to watch a video example of why she earned such a title. Well actually to be fair, I did find a channel claiming to be the official Vivid channel but it was really a dead profile for the most part. You gotta give it up for Digital Playground and Jesse Jane for the best use of new Internet based technologies for marketing.
So back to my rant, how is it that my friend justifies Vivid being so great and how they take advantage of new technologies? Well she just rolled her eyes and wouldn’t finish the argument with me but I’m not really just getting off of my original point.
Where are all the Vivid girls on Twitter? It’s a little odd that not even one of them are taking advantage of this new technology, don’t you think?
