Our Clients are in GQ…Yes, We Do That!

 

 

 

 

 

Mainstream is crucial and we got our clients in a GQ Magazine article that premiered today. “What It’s Like to Be a Male Porn Star in 2019” spotlights both Ryan Driller and Lance Hart. They both had a rockstar photoshoot with celeb photog Roger Kisby, as well as an interview with GQ’s Associate Editor. It was all done in Vegas during AVN and we’re excited to finally see the article premiere. And yes, we that and much more!

Damage Control…A Reality in PR

The adult industry has been part of some pretty awful press for the last year or so for everything from cyber bullying to drugs and beyond. Many times, when someone has bad press, they turn to a publicist or PR firm for help. Sometimes it can help, and other times not so much so.

We had a client who had a bad reputation for being difficult on set (and that’s putting it mildly). We told her to treat everyone on set with respect, no matter what their job was. Then, we suggested a name change and worked with her to come up with a new name. Everything was going well until she went back to her old ways and yelled at the director and his assistant. Then, her agency dropped her, word got around she was back to her old tricks, and then she couldn’t afford PR. She ended up leaving the industry. The lesson here is that if you want to fix your reputation is that you have to want to change and continue with the new behavior.

What about someone who has committed some horrible crimes? The crimes will be always tried in a court of public opinion–everyone has their thoughts. After they go before a court, that’s when everything changes. Based on that verdict, that’s when you will look at damage control. Even if that person is NOT found guilty, it will be hard to change public opinion. Going away for awhile or reinventing themselves might work, but it also might not. It’s all case by case.

We’ve become experts in damage control over the years. If you’ve had some bad press or image issues, we might be able to help. Hit us up at info@therubpr.com.

What Talent Agencies Do You Recommend?

 

 

 

 

 

We get this question a lot. There are a lot of talent agencies out there in the adult realm, so it’s not an easy choice.

Based on the happiness of current and past clients, along with our relationship with agencies, there are two we recommend: OC Modeling and ATMLA. Why? There are many reasons., but here are a few:

  • Both agencies treat their talent on their rosters fairly and with dignity.
  • They run their businesses with integrity and do the right thing whenever possible.
  • Both Sandra McCarthy and Mark Schechter are people we respect very highly and are respected as a whole by the industry.
  • They both do their best to get their talent working, and as much as possible.
  • Both agencies have many award-winners on their current rosters.

If you’re looking for an adult agency, you should contact one or both. They’re both selective and not everyone gets in the door. But that’s true of many agencies, since so many people are trying to get into adult. If you’re looking to get into adult, a good place to start is with the right agent. Once you’re working, then you hire a publicist, and that’s where we come in.

Magazine Covers & Features…We Get Our Clients That!

One of the amazing services we offer (and there are lots) is magazine placement. Many times, it’s not JUST a feature but also a COVER! This month both Larkin Love and Brenna Sparks got covers and features!

 

Brenna is on the cover of the September issue of Xcitement Magazine out this Saturday, Sept. 1.

Larkin Love is on the cover and featured in Kink Queens Summer 2018 issue available NOW for viewing and print issues can be purchased.
