    *Craig’s Erotica Editorial*
    Damn the Moral Majority: Opens New Companionship and Adult Entertainment Business Opportunities Ad Site launches adult services site

    Miami Beach,, an Internet Adult Entertainment Directory website, specializing in Adult Companionship classifieds and Adult Business Opportunities, has called for the Federal Government to do its duty, by protecting all the Constitutional rights of all consenting adults in America, according to our great Constitution.

    Our Federal Government has passed on the protection of everyone’s Constitutional Rights to the State Governments, according to Craig’s Erotica. The States have systematically acknowledged the requests of religious groups and conservative factions over that of the general public in America.

    Finally, most Americans and regards this as extremely unethical and certainly illegal. What makes this illegal is that this goes completely against the first amendment of The U.S. Constitution. A State must never have any say over what The United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights gives to every American for their protection and freedoms.

    Craig’s Erotica is calling out to our Federal Government for the repression and harm that it has allowed to take place regarding Women’s abortion rights, same gender marriages and its interference with what consenting Adults do in private.

    There is an Adult Companionship Profession that is there because of the need for their services, and their demand is at an all time high in America. Their Constitutional Rights must be protected at The Federal level, this where it belongs and it must remain there always. The lack of this Constitutional Protection denies everyone’s rights to freedom of expression, especially the Clients and Adult Companions equally (It seems that no one considers the client’s Constitutional rights).

    Liberal has its roots in the word Liberty; this is a very powerful word. The time has come to think hard and long about the meaning of this word Liberty.

    The furor over our Government’s involvement in private issues is nothing new. Again I remind you about the Abortion and reproductive rights that remain a hot topic nearly four decades after Roe vs. Wade, as does same gender marriages.

    Freedom of Speech in regards to pornography is technically governed at the state level, which is ridiculous, but the restrictions of the Federal and State obscenity laws thwarts the U.S. Constitutional rights of all Adult everywhere in America.

    Government involvement and regulation has recently gained attention, as Los Angeles County, a prominent home for the adult film industry, passed a measure requiring condom use, another Constitutional Right, and this private choice is taken away from us.

    Community Standards is a term that Government likes to throw around. But each individual has their own Community Standard and that must be protected for everyone equally under the U.S. Constitution. But Government has chosen sides and picked a favorite in this discussion. It is no longer acceptable by most Americans to have religious organizations and conservatives telling us how to live our private lives. They then cajole and force our elected officials with threats of labeling them as perverts or deviants if they support the laws that give us all the freedoms for us to do as we see fit to do, in finding enjoyment; such as with love, happiness and the excitement between other like minded Adult Americans.

    If you want a happier country and life, don’t be afraid to speak up for our freedoms. It is said, ‘that we shouldn’t fear our government, they should fear us.’

    For your information, was conceived in 2010 and is now active online, in order to freely serve the needs of the lonely and other Consenting Adults. advertisers post their Companionship ads, which viewers browse through.

    We here at will always maintain our hard line that our Federal Government must protect the Constitutional Rights of the Professional Companionship Adult Industry and immediately restrict all the States from violating these protections, which are the fabric of our Constitution of the United States of America.

    It is the goal of to have the cooperation of the Congressional-mandated CyberTipLine, aka the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, for guidance, in order to stamp out all online exploitation of children in the Adult Companionship industry and child abuse everywhere.

    Filed under: Adult Internet, Adult Websites, Job Sites, Web Launches, , , , , , Offers Crowd Funding to Adult Entertainment Producers

    Crowd funding site for adult porn entertainment content Offbeatr
    Los Angeles, California – Extra Lunch Money, the marketplace for custom and pre-made adult digital products, announces the advance industry preview of [], a platform that enables public crowd funding for the adult entertainment industry.

    Offbeatr is the first crowd funding resource specifically designed for the adult industry. Offbeatr allows producers, performers, artists, authors and other adult content creators a way to raise money for their projects from individuals in exchange for unique rewards, utilizing crowd funding for the adult industry. With Offbeatr, each Project Creator will get a dedicated page which describes what their project is, how much money they are raising, and what rewards they will offer in exchange for monetary pledges from the public.

    Crowd funding, or crowd financing, describes the collective cooperation of many individuals coming together to pledge funds to an individual or organization to complete a specified project from the funds raised, utilizing the public as the financing arm for the project. One of the most well known mainstream crowd funding sites is Kickstarter, which is often used by small businesses, artists and other creatives that are seeking the support of fans or patrons for designated projects.

    Supporters use Offbeatr to pledge money to projects listed on the site that interest them, and receive the rewards offered by the Project Creators for their financial help in completing the project. At the end of the project funding deadline, if the project reached its goal then the Supporters credit cards are charged and the money is transferred to the Creator. If the goal isn’t met Supporters aren’t charged at all.

    Extra Lunch Money and Offbeatr CEO, Ben Tao said, “I would love to say Offbeatr was a totally original idea, it’s not. While there are hundreds of crowd funding websites online, there are exactly zero which allow projects of an adult or sexual nature. If your creativity involves trying to get your ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ porn parody made, good luck trying on a mainstream crowd funding site. So where does that leave people who have a great adult movie, website or mobile app idea, and need a little funding to get it off the ground? Offbeatr fills that gap and offers several benefits. Project Creators raise the money they need, while retaining the rights to their projects, and Supporters get unique rewards with the satisfaction of directly supporting Project Creators who are producing the type of adult content they want to see.”

    Ela Darling will post a project for the launch of Offbeatr. She explained why the concept is very welcome for performers and others in the adult industry.

    “When Kickstarter launched, I sent out some feelers to see if I could bring to life this fun fairytale porn idea I had, but I was shot down by the site admins because they didn’t want to host that sort of project. Then I catered an adult art project specifically to the Kickstarter community, and it was successful, but it’s still disappointing that in spite of that success, I can’t bring other, bigger projects to a crowd funding site like that.”

    Tao is excited, “There should be a lot of creativity and variety in the projects posted to Offbeatr. Project Creators will be able to present what they’re passionate about and truly want to work on, without worrying about how to make them acceptable to the traditional sources of capital. Before Offbeatr there was little chance of any adult project idea seeing the light of day, but with Offbeatr we offer something previously not offered: Hope.”

    Offbeatr is looking for passionate and creative Project Creators, to submit their projects to the site. Offbeatr projects will be by invitation only during the advance industry preview period. Potential Project Creators can request an invitation by visiting or by email to

    Europe’s Sun Island Studio Sets Sights on American Adult Landscape

    Sun Island Studio provides full service production support and self produced titles New Castle County, Delaware – European production house, Sun Island Studio, has quietly built a new company stronghold in the United States over the last two years. With the launch of a new internet site, [] the company takes another step in the goal of expanding U.S. distribution of their self-produced adult content and also offering their production services to other adult content clients.

    Since 2005, Sun Island Studio has been a major producer of custom content for European sites, including Scarlett Content and Now the driving force behind the company, producer and director, Alex Allard, offers his video catalog and production services to American content providers, as well.

    “Sun Island Studio is a full service production house, not only for my own adult titles, but also for those that are looking for custom scenes and full length videos for their own sites and catalogs. I have put into place a U.S. team of production and post-production artists, to provide the same high quality straight and niche content to the American industry that I have been providing to European content houses for over 5 years,” said Allard.

    Allard has taken Sun Island Studio’s cameras to exotic locales from Budapest, Hungary to Sao Paulo, Brazil in search of new models. Along the way, he’s branched out into the adult niches of transsexual and gay hardcore, expanding his own content library, as well as those of his clients.

    “Not all beauty is blonde, blue eyed girls. I have been fortunate enough to shoot beautiful models in so many exotic places around the world. Many of them are not the typical porn star that is seen in adult video. I am not going to be a slave to capturing only one type of beauty. I have an eye for the unique, the exotic and models with a natural sexual appetite, no matter if they are girls, men or transgender,” Allard grinned.

    Along with the move to providing production for the American business to business market, come plans to make Sun Island Studio labeled content available more widely through U.S. distribution outlets. BluRay and HD DVD releases of the entire Sun Island Studio catalog are offered as well as expanded video on demand, mobile and broadcast licensing opportunities.

    “I had been thinking more of the American adult industry as 2010 neared. I share a love between my home country of France and my new home in America. My heart is now in two places at once, and it is time for me to follow that into how I conduct my business. It is time for me to release my own titles in the U.S. and to provide other businesses here with my services,” concluded Allard.

    Start My Porn Company Suggests Sheen Take the Reins of His Porn Destiny

    Start My Porn Company fast-tracks budding porn producers
    Chatsworth, CaliforniaStart My Porn Company [] offers Charlie Sheen the ability to take total control of his own creative destiny, if he ultimately decides to enter the world of adult production.

    Many adult companies are offering the former Two and a Half Men star directing positions at this time, but none of the offers thus far seem to include control of the production or product, beyond putting his name on the box cover and press releases. Start My Porn Company Founder, Linda Roberts says, “Of course there are a lot of porn companies offering Charlie director status. They want exactly what Chuck Lorre, and everyone else he has worked with, has always wanted: To use Charlie’s talent to make money. With Start My Porn Company, Charlie is in charge of everything, and he isn’t at the mercy of someone that just wants to use his name to turn a profit.”

    Sherry Ziegelmeyer, owner of porn publicity firm Black and Blue Media and Roberts’ partner in Start My Porn Company, sees Sheen’s recent outbursts as the words of someone who is creatively frustrated. “Between the lines of everything that has been said by Sheen, it all comes down to being tired of other people using his talent for their own gain. By starting his own adult production company, he would have the benefit of owning and controlling everything about the production and what happens to it after it’s edited. Start My Porn Company can help him do that. Many mainstream actors and producers have considered crossing into adult, however they quickly find out they have no clue how adult works. Linda and I did it for Ed Van Halen, and to this day his product is still making money, even if he ultimately decided his interest wasn’t in porn. Ed didn’t know where to start, so we guided him to the people that could get it done while he called the shots on how it was done. There’s no reason why someone with the talent, imagination and intelligence Charlie Sheen possesses, can’t eclipse that and build a profitable porn empire of his own with the same type of help.”

    Start My Porn Company offers anyone who has dreamed of starting their own adult company experienced production and business management services to get started on the right track to profit from their porn dreams.
