Fame Registry Announces New Award Category

Fame Registry recently announced the nominees for their annual awards.  Today they announced a previously unknown category to the awards.  This one is called

The Sexy Webmistress Award

The sexy webmistress award is based on the overall popularity of the porn star’s website however the website must be actually run by the porn star herself … while sure she may hire a graphics artist here and there or a programmer to do some things but in the end, the site is one she runs herself and this winner will be selected based on the one who did her job best and ran the most popular official website. Again remember this is based on data collected during 2010.  

The 7 sexy vixens up for this award are …

  • The Love Twins
  • Nina Mercedez
  • Nikki Benz
  • Raven Alexis
  • Sara Jay
  • Vanilla DeVille
  • Vicky Vette

I asked for clarification in this specific category and was told that while it is more than understandable that no one person can know everything, or do everything themselves, meaning – it is more than understandable that sometimes porn stars may hire a guy to do graphics here and there or perhaps some SEO or maybe to edit their videos for them but in the end, there is a difference between a site actually run by a porn star and those farmed out to networks like Blazing Bucks or Premium Cash or whatever.    It’s not to say there is anything wrong with that, it’s just that this award is specifically for those who run their own sites.

Winners to be announced via twitter on August 30th

Beware of making cross sale deals with Penthouse or AFF

You would assume that now that Adult Friend Finder is owned by Penthouse you wouldn’t still be hearing about them scamming people still, but you would be wrong.   After what I heard today, it really makes one think twice now about having anything to do with any division of Penthouse, not just the blatant scammers like Adult Friend Finder.  I really thought much more highly of Penthouse … well, until now.  I guess looking back on it, when I heard the story on TMZ about Penthouse being busted for hiring men to pretend like they are women online, and they have been doing it since the day they launched their site, duping who knows how many thousands and thousands of consumers into thinking they were talking to real women, that I should have suspected they were just as shady as AFF but for some reason I just had more faith in the Penthouse brand.

There is a thing in the adult industry known as cross sales.   A lot of times these cross sale deals are made in a sort of, you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours kind of deal.

In short, website A offers a consumer the opportunity to join website B for a great discount, sometimes free for 1 to 3 days, sometimes for just a $1.  In return website B pays website A a kickback or commission of typically $20 to $25.  Website B is banking on the fact that the consumer in question will love their website so much they will stay a member and in return, they will make their money back on the full membership price and any recurring months they may stay a member after that.

Sounds simple enough, right?  Well really it is, but the problem with this system is when you have a company like Adult Friend Finder, who will go to people and trade favors for things they want of rather good value, say for example if a company owned a content company as well and AFF might say, reduce my cost on this huge amount of content I just bought from you and in return I’ll send you a ton of new members through a cross sale deal.   The problem is AFF sends over fake sales.

So now the guy just gave AFF a huge discount, losing thousands of dollars on content in return for, nothing.  Actually worse than nothing, in return for a large number of chargebacks.

What AFF is doing is bullying new members into joining a series of websites, as many as 8 “FREE TRIALS” to activate their membership and talk to other members.  They promise, you won’t have to pay for anything, just join and then cancel right away.

See what they just did there?  Now website B just got themselves a whole bunch of members fraudulently.

How fucked up is that?

So before you sit down and consider making any deals with any Penthouse owned websites including Penthouse, Adult Friend Finder or Danni.com, just keep in mind this story you just heard because you could be the sucker who gets scammed by them next!

 

Sexting Politician Caught Again

Sex and politics have long been intertwined.  If you’ve ever played The White House Sluts trivia game, you probably know just how far back sex scandals really go.

Well today another politician has stepped down due to a nude photo scandal.  When will these dumb asses learn not to have online relationships and if you do, sure and heck don’t send these bitches pictures of your junk!  [source]

New Jersey Democrat resigns after nude photos circulated

NEW YORK (Reuters) – After an online sexting scandal brought down Congressman Anthony Weiner, the last thing a politician would even consider is sending a nude self-portrait over the Internet. Apparently not.

Cumberland County freeholder Louis Magazzu, 53, stepped down on Tuesday after nude photos he sent to a woman with whom he had a long online relationship were posted on the website of conservative blogger Carl Johnson, said Magazzu’s lawyer Rocco Cipparone.

“Unfortunately, in my personal life, I did not always demonstrate the wisdom and balance that I expected from myself, and that the people of Cumberland County deserve and have every right to expect,” Magazzu said in a statement.

Magazzu, a Democrat, hired Cipparone to pursue legal action against Johnson, a Republican. He said the images were meant to be seen only by the woman and he was set up.

“A woman who I have never met personally, but have corresponded with on the Internet for several years, has recently shared some photographs which she requested and that were intended only for her eyes,” Magazzu said in the statement.

“I did not know that she was working with an avowed political enemy to distribute these pictures … I have retained counsel to determine what laws may have been broken by the unauthorized distribution of those pictures. No government services or equipment were used by me when taking the pictures or transmitting them to the woman in question.”

The photos appear to show Magazzu standing naked in front of a mirror.

Cipparone said Magazzu, who has been separated from his wife for about two years, sent the photos earlier this year.

“This is not another Anthony Weiner case,” said Cipparone, calling the distribution of Magazzu’s nude images “an invasion of privacy both civilly and criminally.”

New York Congressman Weiner resigned in June after a highly publicized scandal in which he was caught sending lewd photos of himself to women over the Internet.

 

Larry Flynt says he’s offered Casey Anthony $500,000 to pose in Hustler

CNN is reporting that … If Larry Flynt has his way, Casey Anthony could reintroduce herself — nude — to America on the pages of Hustler magazine, and make well over $500,000 in the process.

The pornography magnate told HLN’s “Nancy Grace” show on Thursday night that talks are ongoing that could land Anthony on the pages of his magazine, weeks after a Florida jury acquitted her of murder in her 2-year-old daughter Caylee’s death.

Anthony’s camp dismissed the report as “nonsense.”

But Flynt insisted he was serious about the offer, which he said would include $500,000 up front plus 10% of all profits. He said any payment that the Orlando woman might receive for interviews with media outlets would be “chicken feed” compared to what she’d receive by appearing in Hustler.

“If they want to get their hands on big money, they’ve got to go through me,” Flynt said.

Anthony’s trial in Orange County fixated tens of thousands of people during its seven-week run, many horrified by the girl’s death and others drawn in by the family drama. Since her release from jail early on the morning of July 17 — after getting credit for time served for her conviction on four counts of misleading authorities — she has remained out of the public eye.

The Hustler magazine founder said that, after a jury cleared the 25-year-old woman on murder charges, he initially did not consider reaching out to her.

But Flynt said his mind changed after being approached by “droves of men” as he was touring the country promoting his new book “One Nation Under Sex.”

“They said, Why haven’t you made an offer? Why don’t you want to publish her pictures?” Flynt said. “They said, She’s a really attractive person … I’ve never seen that happen before.”

Asked about whether the decision might be distasteful to the many who feel Anthony got away with murder, Flynt said his tour suggests to him that there was a real demand. He also claimed that a portion of any proceeds would go to charities aimed at addressing child abuse.

Flynt noted, too, that he has “never been one to shy away from controversy,” boasting on HLN about printing nude photos of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in 1975.

“You’ve got men who say hey, I want to see her in her birthday suit,” he said of the Anthony offer. “There may be some sick individuals … but that’s what life is all about.”

Earlier this month, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner said he got a similar flood of requests from people encouraging him to try to get Anthony for his magazine. But he shot down any possibility that would happen.

“It is amazing the number of people that have tweeted me immediately afterward, asking whether or not we would do a pictorial on her,” Hefner told CNN’s Piers Morgan. “And the answer is simply no. I wouldn’t reward someone like that for what has happened.”

Mark Lippman, the attorney for the woman’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony, said he had no knowledge that his clients had talked with their daughter since her acquittal — including about this offer. Both parents testified at her trial, with defense lawyers claiming that George Anthony helped cover up his granddaughter’s death.

“This is all news to me,” Lippman told HLN. “And obviously, Casey is her own person, and she’s making her own decisions.”
