BURBANK, Calif. – YNOT, an adult entertainment resource, has added Heidi Joy Pike to its editorial team.

Pike formerly held editorial positions with AVN and John Stagliano’s Buttman Magazine. In addition to Pike’s writing talents, she possesses professional erotic experience both in front of an audience as a Seattle peep-show girl and behind a camera as a director for New Machine and Bad Seed.

“I worked with Heidi for years while she was my senior associate editor at AVN, and I was very pleased when she was one of several highly qualified candidates who responded to our call for writers,” YNOT editor Darklady said. “Heidi is a savvy, sassy, and experienced professional with a big heart, sharp mind, and a few opinions — all of which I expect will lead us into many mutual adventures.”


Pike’s work began appearing on YNOT this week, and she said she is excited at the prospect of renewing professional acquaintances and expanding her professional focus.

“I was so very happy to be asked to write regularly for YNOT,” she said. “I loved working with Darklady previously and could not pass up the opportunity to work with her again. YNOT is a lively, informative news site, and I’m looking forward to adding my voice to it.”
