Natalie Star Inks Deal with Fleshlight

Web Cam Juggernaut Tapped as One of the Newest Models for the World’s Best-Selling Male Sex Toy

Pleasure product manufacturer Fleshlight and live cam powerhouse Flirt4Free have selected Natalie Star to be an official Fleshlight model for the CamStars by Fleshight line.

Star was selected to be a Fleshlight model due to her accomplishments in the industry, both on cam and as a business leader.

“Natalie Star is one of the best marketers in the cam business,” said Fleshlight COO Brian Shubin. “Her level of celebrity and dominance within Flirt4Free transcends beyond the platform and throughout social media and the adult press.”

In addition to being one of the most popular models on the Flirt4Free network, Star is the owner of Major League Cams (MLC), a webcam model recruitment hub. Her unique perspective has allowed Star to experience the rise of cam modeling’s popularity firsthand.

“It’s an honor to have been named one of Fleshlight’s newest cam star models,” Star enthused. “For years I’ve been saying that cam stars are the future of adult entertainment. The fact that Fleshlight has given me the opportunity to stand beside some of the largest names in the business not only increases cam models’ significance within the industry – it solidifies what I’ve been saying all along.”

Star’s Fleshlight is part of the company’s CamStar Line – inaugurated with personalized molds based on five of Flirt4Free’s top female performers – and an ongoing initiative to embrace the world of webcam and interactive adult entertainment.

“Natalie Star is a prime example of a cam star who has successfully made herself into a brand,” said Flirt4Free’s Senior Account Executive Eddie Bastian.

“She is one of the hardest working models I have ever had the pleasure of working with,” Bastian added. “She always steps up to the plate and gives 110% in any project she does.”

Starting as a model mentor in 2007, Star has become one of the most visible women in the cam business. Star regularly shares her insights with adult industry media, as well as mainstream press. She was named XBIZ Woman of the Month in April 2014, an accounting of her career was detailed in Playboy, and she was recently nominated for AVN’s 2016 “Favorite Cam Girl” Fans’ Choice Award.

Star’s Fleshlight will be available to the public during the first quarter of 2016.

Herschel Savage …a nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn, who made it BIG in Porn

When Herschel Savage arrived on the scene in the early 1970s, he brought more than just impossibly good looks, but considerable acting chops, having studied under Uta Hagen, as well as renowned acting teacher Stella Adler. Though reports online vary greatly, Herschel, by his own account, has appeared in more than 1,500 films, over his 40 year career. You may have seen him in the Golden Era Classic “Debbie Does Dallas” (under the name Bill Barry).

Herschel Savage

Larry Revene remembers shooting loops with him in Bob Wolf’s 14th St. studio as early as 1973. We met up with Herschel in L.A., where I had the opportunity to talk with him about working with my father on “Odyssey: The Ultimate Trip” (aka “Odyssex”), “People”, “Skin-Flicks”, “For Richer for Poorer”, “Beyond Your Wildest Dreams”, and “Forbidden Bodies”.

I was most interested in speaking about the Sci-Fi Sex Pic “The Satisfiers of Alpha Blue”. I worked on this film in 1980. Still too young to work during the actual filming, I painted sets and created some of the props, earning a credit for “prop design”. Hershel plays opposite R. Bolla (another nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn, with formidable acting skills), as the two debate “Love vs. Sex”, against the backdrop of a future in decay.

Herschel chose his stage name while joking around with Jamie Gillis, trying to combine a “porn name”, with one that was distinctly Jewish. This draws attention to a trend in actors of the “Golden Age”, as nearly every major male star was a Jew born in New York City. The list includes Harry Reems, Ron Jeremy, Jerry Butler, R.Bolla, Bobby Astyr, and Jamie Gillis himself. Honorable mention goes to Marc Stevens (b. Delaware), and Carter Stevens (b. Newark, NJ).

Today Herschel is still active, preferring to appear on the stage rather than on the screen, has actually portrayed my father, a role that he is quite proud of. He hosts a weekly comedy show on xxxpornstarradio.com every Thursday night, from 6:15-8:15 PM (Pacific Time). You can call in at 1.484.352.2598.

RedPass is no more

Today Zombaio officially closes the door on Redpass.

Notice of impending cessation of Service

We write to inform you that Redpass will cease operations on 30 November 2015

The system will operate pretty much as normal until that time with the only exception being that with immediate effect, no new accounts will be approved and no new cards can be issued.

Funds loaded onto cards will be accessible to 30 march 2015, and can be used for point of sale purchases, ATM withdrawals or P2P transfers as normal up until this date.

Funds in the e-wallet can normally only be sent back to the originating source (contact support for case-by-case help). However any withdrawal limits still applies.

I am aware that many of you mainly use Redpass as a way to receive cheap payouts from Zombaio and other merchants, and even though the service has not been as efficient as we would have liked in recent times, it still represented the cheapest (if not the fastest) way that you could get access to your money. Other (better) alternative will become available for you to choose from for Zombaio payouts before 30 November 2015. Funds transferred to your RedPass e-wallet trough Zombaio can be sent back to Zombaio, then you can choose another payout method from Zombaio admin.

I understand that Zombaio will be writing to their members separately about alternative payment options and we will ask other companies that actively use Redpass as a means to pay their associates to do the same.

We are giving you advanced notice of this so that you have sufficient time to make alternative arrangements for any settlements that will be due to you from the beginning of December.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your time as a Redpass user. If you have any questions about this letter or require any information concerning the options for the
withdrawal of any balance on your account, please contact support and we will do our best to help.

Is your publicist falling short? Quite possibly

Is PR Dropping the Ball? Majority of Reporters Say They Are Unhappy with Press Materials and Lack of Quality Content for Stories

 

Journalists Are Likely to Ignore a Pitch that Contains No Graphics

According to a recent survey, an overwhelming number of journalists and media professionals are unhappy with how they are approached by corporate communications, resulting in working longer hours and increased frustration. The survey, conducted by content distribution and tracking platform ISEBOX.com, revealed that journalists are having to work harder and produce more in order to make a living—but their needs are not being met by most PR professionals or technology solutions.

According to the newly released survey of North American journalists and media professionals, 68% of journalists feel that their job has become more difficult in the last 5 years—which is in stark contrast to the recent technology advancements that were intended to accelerate workflows. Of these new technologies, few have been developed to facilitate mass distribution of content in a way that is easily accessible and centralized for media professionals—resulting in scattered and often inaccessible story-related content.

In spite of these obstacles, survey results show that 52% of journalists are producing at least 5 articles per week, with almost 20% producing over 11 articles per week. Of the articles published, 75% include multimedia content. Of the more than 20 pitches the majority of journalists receive each week, most do not include multimedia content, resulting in journalists spending additional time to track it down themselves.

“There seems to be a major gap between what reporters need, and how corporate communications are providing these needs,” said Salvatore Salpietro, CTO of ISEBOX.com, in a news release. “There is increasing pressure to gain earned media coverage by corporate communications and public relations teams, yet they are still making the process very difficult for media to access content and put together a story by using things like FTP, email, locked-down websites and manual requests—all of these are enthusiasm-killers.”

Regarding delivery of multimedia content to journalists, the most popular method is still via email, in spite of commonplace restrictions on file size attachments, followed by Dropbox and actual physical mailing of digital media, such as USB keys and hard drives. When gathering and collecting content, 80% of reporters expressed frustration in needing to spend more than 30 minutes doing so. Nonetheless, 80% of journalists feel including photos, infographics or video is very important to creating effective and engaging content.

“If a pitch doesn’t contain graphics I can include with my article, it’s hard for me to take it on. Even better if there is a video. I am under strict deadlines to produce at least 5-7 articles a day, and visual content is always required. Wasting hours sourcing and editing a company’s logo or media content to accompany a post is something I literally cannot afford. When a pitch comes with everything attached, no cumbersome downloads, I want to hug that PR rep. And, I’m more likely to pick up on the next release from them, too,” said Karen Fratti, freelance writer and frequent contributor for Mediabistro andHuffington Post.

MALLcom Announces AdultDVD.com Website Is Up for Sale

Online adult superstore MALLcom has put its AdultDVD.com website up for sale. The company notes that the discount DVD retail site currently generates over six figures in monthly revenue with zero advertising dollars spent. MALLcom is looking for interest from the highest bidder.

“Adult retail has treated me very well over the years, and continues to do so!,” said Jerry Aroni, president of MALLcom Corp. “People are still buying DVDs in droves. We currently ship up to 500 orders a day. Adult toys, condoms, lubes, etc., are also selling better than ever before! After 20 years in business, I’m now looking forward to a couple of years of traveling and enjoying my success with my family.”

MALLcom previously sold its domain Pornstar.com for a hefty sum, and expects that AdultDVD.com will fetch a robust price as well.

AdultDVD.com boasts a database of 450,000 customers that has been growing since its inception in 1998 with practically no advertising costs. Containing the popular keyword “adult” and an original .com suffix, AdultDVD.com is a desirable domain for competitors in the online adult space.

Oregon judge: taking photos up girl’s skirt not illegal

An Oregon judge has acquitted a 61-year-old man who admitted taking photographs up the skirt of a 13-year-old girl as she shopped at a Target store in suburban Portland, lawyers in the case said Friday.

Washington County Circuit Court Judge Eric Butterfield ruled on Thursday that Patrick Buono did not break the law when he surreptitiously took the pictures of the girl in January 2013, said his defense attorney Mark Lawrence.

“He did not deny it and he feels real bad about it too, by the way,” Lawrence said.

The girl did not notice his actions, Lawrence said, but another woman in the store alerted officials and film from surveillance cameras later confirmed Buono’s act.

The practice of “upskirting” has caused problems for prosecutors in other court cases where there are no laws on the books preventing people from taking unauthorized pictures up the skirts of clothed women in public places.

Prosecutors accused Buono of attempting to engage in criminal conduct and charged him with invasion of privacy and attempted encouraging child sex abuse.

Washington County Deputy District Attorney Paul Maloney said the girl, now 14 and testified against Buono in court, was shocked by the incident. He said he was disappointed by the judge’s decision.

“She’s a great kid,” Maloney said. “She’s got a great family and what she did the other day was really brave and I’m proud of her. I think she’s a mature, young girl and she’s doing the best she can with this.”

Lawrence said he filed for an acquittal in the case because there was no Oregon law that Buono had violated.

Maloney said he thinks lawmakers could provide more clarity, “but it was clear what conduct the defendant engaged in.”
