"The Hundred Grand Gala, as we affectionately referred to it, was a celebration of how far HotMovies has come and all the hopes and plans we have for the future," said Director of Marketing and party organizer James Cybert.
HotMovies' 100,000th film It's a Secretary Thing, courtesy of Elegant Angel, was introduced at the party and is available on the website. Additionally, end users are eligible for free minutes towards their pay-per-view accounts in order to help them kick things off.
The evening opened with a live burlesque performance from the Peek-A-Boo Revue. Miss Exotic World's Best Troupe 2008 performed an adults-only pastiche of song, dance and comedy to warm up the crowd and artists from PornSaints.org were on hand for an exhibition of their porn-star inspired art. Works by D'Isa, Jeff Faerber, Katelan Foisy, Julio Aguilera, Molly Crabapple and Jorden Hale were available for purchase.
America's most dangerous game show, Strip for Pain, closed the night with a contest of will and endurance. Male contestants submitted themselves to tortures including nipple clamps, tazers, and kicks to the nuts by gorgeous women with an attitude.
"As the contestants take more pain, the girls, beautiful strippers and adult film performers, take off their clothes - it's that simple," said Doug Sakmann, who co-hosts the event with alt porn entrepreneur Joanna Angel.
Cybert promises to see everyone at the 200,000th movie party next year.
