VIVID’S “TEN HOTTEST COUPLES WISH LIST” MAKES A SPLASH  Vivid announced its sixth annual “Ten Hottest Couples Wish List” of celebrities it would like to add to its sex tapes series. The new list was an immediate hit on gossip and entertainment sites, led by Hollywood Life. Sites picking up on the story included Naughty Gossip, the Daily Read, Newsfisher, Spreading News, Gossip Now and many others. Of the ten couples chosen for the 2016 list, a third made the list two years in a row -- George Clooney/Amal Alamuddin, Adam Levine/Behati Prinsloo and Johnny Depp/Amber Heard. Levine and Prinsloo moved up a notch from 9th to 8th place and Depp and Heard have slipped from 8th on the list to 10th.  Couples on the list for the first time are Taylor Swift/Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez, Kylie Jenner/Tyga, Gigi Hadid/Zayn Malik, Gwen Stefani/Blake Shelton, Drake/Serena Williams and Anna Faris/Chris Pratt. Vivid chief Steven Hirsch commented on the list, saying “George and Amal continue to be the most coveted by Vivid and are at the top of the list again because they’re super hot and look better than ever. Fans either want to meet them or be them. Taylor is our second choice because not only is she an amazing entertainer, she is incredibly beautiful and wildly popular. Calvin has his own success as a recording artist and women really love him. These tall, slender blondes would have strong appeal to a younger audience. We’d have to put Justin and Selena plus Kylie and Tyga on the list because they are young, unpredictable and have great sexual charisma.”
