VIVID TO RELEASE ‘GOING FOR THE GOLD’ WITH WORLD’S FIRST INTERSEX PORN STAR, TAYLOR LIANNE CHANDLER – Vivid will release Going for the Gold, featuring the world’s first intersex porn star Taylor Lianne Chandler, born with both male and female parts. The movie, to be released online January 12th, reveals her version of intimate and erotic details of an alleged affair with a world famous Olympic gold medal winner. She appeared on The Howard Stern Show last week and discussed her relationship with the athlete. News of the movie generated more headlines and extensive media coverage, including TMZ, the Bleacher Report, Elite Daily, and a story in the Mirror of London. Vivid’s Steven Hirsch said: “This is the most unique footage Vivid has ever released. We expect there to be enormous interest in Taylor. In fact, the sky is the limit on this movie. Ms. Chandler says of her sexuality: “Intersex is an umbrella term that has replaced hermaphrodite which is now considered politically incorrect. In my case, I was born with both a penis and a uterus. Even though my original birth certificate says that I was born male, I always felt that I was a female.” According to recent news reports Ms. Chandler met her Olympian on Tinder last August. “It was like a teenage love affair,” she says. “I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him.” She was working as a sign language interpreter on Capitol Hill prior to all the publicity about her affair with the high profile Olympian. In “Going for the Gold” Taylor takes us through an online courting process and then into the bedroom with her hero, revealing exactly why she was so enamored of him. “He made me feel like I was the most beautiful woman in the world. There is not one part of my body that he doesn’t know and he loved every inch of me. This movie will show just how passionate and loving our relationship was. I wanted to make this movie to celebrate this incredible time in my life and also to open the conversation about people born with both male and female genitalia so that there will be more education and understanding of what it’s about,” said Ms. Chandler.

SHORTANDSWEETNYC INTERVIEWS SUSAN COLVIN ON VIVID RAW TOY LINE – editor Ralph Greco has posted a lengthy interview with Susan Colvin, President and CEO of California Exotic Novelties, about the Vivid Raw toy line. Greco writes: “As they have now for quite some time with their Vivid Raw toy line, premier adult producer Vivid and California Exotic Novelties-a toy industry leader-have been working hard to bring consumers the Vivid Raw line, a collection of ‘strokers,’ body-part molds and other goodies just perfect for couple and solo fun. Made from their Pure Silk® material, these adult products are truly unique in their construction. Having just released their Super Model doll and consistently stretching innovations with all their products I just knew a conversation with California Exotic’s Susan Colvin would prove fun indeed.” Asked if CalExotic has “one product that sells hands down over any of the others? Body part molds men gravitate towards more then others?” Susan replied: “Strokers are the best sellers, particularly lifelike vaginas with attributes like the G-spot. These toys replicate a very authentic experience.
The large lifelike asses, like the Assterbator, the Teen Assterbator, the Bootylicious, and the Baby Got Back, are proving to be huge hits too. These types of lifelike toys are always very popular. We’re seeing a great response for the Life Size Body Banger as well. Not to mention the dolls! The D.P Goddess Love Doll, the Doggy Style Diva Love Doll and the Spread Eagle Starlet are all super-popular—and the party dolls in the collection are just plain fun! The pinnacle product in the Vivid Raw Collection is the Super Model. Everyone wants to sleep with a super model, and now they can. This revolutionary doll is molded after Alanah Rae and 100% lifelike. She has inner inflation that uses the revolutionary Air Vivid inner structure, which increases or decreases air to customize her firmness. It puts the user in control. Decide how firm or soft she is when you first inflate her – pump included.” Later in the interview she said that the “Vivid Raw handheld stroker is a great porn pal, gets the job done, and feels amazingly realistic. Some things don’t need to be any more complicated than that.” As for the future, Susan said, “California Exotic Novelties and Vivid enjoy collaborating very much. We’ve already discussed new products and collections for the future. Everything is very hush-hush right now, but we’ll let you know when we’re ready with the next big thing from California Exotic Novelties and Vivid!”
