SHORT & SWEET CELEBRATES VIVID RADIO’S FIRST YEAR – Popular website ShortandSweetNYC and ShortandSweetLA helped Vivid Radio celebrate its first year anniversary with interviews of general manager Farrell Hirsch and new hosts Alexis Amore and April Flores. Farrell told interviewer Ralph Greco: “We launched Vivid Radio with great enthusiasm that has only gotten stronger in the past 12 months. We knew it was ambitious to start with an entire network of shows, but we couldn’t resist because of the extraordinary talent available. We now have over 20 shows and each one has a gorgeous porn star host and its own fan base.” Greco interviewed two of the hosts for his weekly column, The Sex Files. Asked if her background in the adult industry helps her answer specific caller questions Alexis said: “Of course. Even if I don’t have a degree in sex education I feel that my own experience and all the years in adult have made me an expert in a way. I think so far in my radio experience I’ve also helped several people and couples.” Alexis also said she loves doing her show, noting, “Having started in adult with Vivid, it’s such a pleasure to do Vivid Radio for them after all these years in the industry.  My show is fun! We talk about everything — sex. sports, fetishes, hobbies…. “ Her show is heard Wednesdays from 1-2 pm PT and can also be heard via the SiriusXM  app and on channel 791.

 Greco noted that April Flores “is the number one BBW star in the world and is also a muse, a model and a feminist, but that’s barely scratching the surface of this fearless voluptuous star with brilliant scarlet hair.  She is a proponent of the LGBTQ community, a sex-positive activist, an outspoken advocate of body diversity, a glamorous art model, avid kink fan (both sub and dom) and all around powerful woman. Her mere presence and powerful sexuality speaks volumes about her activism for body diversity.” Asked by Greco to describe “what important sexual/adult questions we are still not answering or just skirting around still?” April said, “We have to be vigilant about body image. Too many people still have self-esteem issues regarding their body, no matter what their size is. People’s self image needs to be supported and we always need to support one another in the quest for a positive body image. Some part of me feels like the battle is never going to stop.” She declined to answer a question about what BBW “enjoy specifically sexually that other less curvy ladies don’t?” Said April: “Everybody and every body is so unique that I can’t answer this question in generalities. I think ultimately people want to feel desired when they are having sex. As for me, I love to connect with a partner in the moment however long that may be. Sex for me is a time to escape real life and focus on giving and receiving pleasure.”
