CANOGA PARK, Calif.—Mercenary Pictures owner and three-time AVN Male Performer of the Year Lexington Steele moves into the publishing business with the launch of Black Diamonds: The Official XXX Magazine of Lexington Steele.
The new consumer-focused magazine is dedicated to all-black ethnic adult content.
"Magazine publisher Blue Horizons contacted me about working with them to publish a hardcore, black-on-black magazine," Steele said. "They felt the quality and branding I have established would provide a viable platform to launch a new publication, adding to their most popular periodicals: High Society, Celebrity Skin and Playgirl.
“Black Diamonds covers a genre and market they wanted to enter. I have always shown ethnic women in a positive light and this is an opportunity to continue to do so.”
The quarterly publication hits newsstands on Dec. 21 and features interviews with Nyomi Banxxx, Gianna Taylor (aka Stilts), Brian Pumper, Mr. Marcus, Aryana Starr, Alexander DeVoe and West Coast Productions’ Terry Burton.
Nyomi Banxxx—the magazine's first cover girl—Aryana Starr, Jada Fire, Pinky and Roxy Reynolds will also be featured in its pictorials.
"Fans of all-black adult entertainment have always had a difficult time finding quality hardcore, whether it’s videos, websites or magazines," Steele said. "My goal with Black Diamonds is to deliver a high-quality black-on-black magazine that fans will enjoy and fill a niche that's been underserved for a very long time. Black Diamonds will also be a venue to let ethnic stars and producers let their fans know what they're doing and what their latest projects are.”
Editorial content in the publication includes an Editor’s Page, an Ask Lex Anything Q&A column, talent and producer interviews, and movie reviews.
Pages in Black Diamonds are available for producers, studios and distributors looking to connect with an ethnic consumer audience. Studios and talent may submit photo sets for consideration.
