“In just the past several years, this has all come to fruition with the emergence of so many women looking for smart and sexy erotica on the internet, as well as the mainstream media attention we have received by being featured on ABC Nightline, Time Magazine, Cosmo, The London Sunday Times, Le Figaro, The Jay Thomas Show,  and dozens of other media outlets that have reached out to us to explain this entire phenomena. I’m very proud and appreciative that AVN has nominated our unique, entertaining and informative site that reaches outside the traditional forms of adult entertainment.”
