Mainstream Media Sympathetic to Homegrown
With so many negative things being said about the adult industry, it's nice to know there are positive mainstream voices speaking about it, as well. Homegrown Video (www.homegrownvideo.com), 20-year veteran of the amateur genre, appears to have little problem appealing to open-minded non-sex venues ranging from Newsweek to the Discovery Channel to the Canadian program, "Sex TV." Even such respected American culture mainstays as Larry King Live, HBO, Marie Clair and Cosmopolitan magazines have given the company the nod.
What is it about Homegrown that sets it apart from other adult video production companies?
During a time when many porn producers are keeping a low profile in order to avoid unwanted attention from industry-unfriendly Attorney General, John Ashcroft, Farrell Timlake's Homegrown cheerfully and shamelessly celebrates amateur enthusiasm for sex. The company has been successful at making the jump online, as well, and is currently collaborating with the inventors of the "Virtual Sex Machine." Homegrown's tapes are popular and easily accepted because, according to Stefanie Histed, Homegrown Videos' publicist, ". it looks more like fun and less like work." For many viewers, it is exactly that quality that draws them to amateur video to begin with. As society grapples with the reality of porn consumption vs. the fiction of community standards, positive presentations of the adult industry can only be an asset.
As Timlake explains, "I believe positive press is one of the industry's best defenses against government sanctions in the first place."

UN Board Sides with Playboy for Rights to Domain Name
Courtesy of AVN.com
GENEVA - Playboy was awarded the rights to the Internet domain name, hughhefner.com in an United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization ruling released recently.
Playboy brought the case against the Good Samaritan Program of Owings Mills, Md., which had registered the name. Playboy said its name was being used to attract Internet traffic to Good Samaritan's sites. The U.N. organization ruled that Good Samaritan had no right to the name of Playboy's founder Hugh Hefner and ordered it transferred to the conglomerate.
Playboy's released a statement on the matter saying that, "Playboy is one of the most recognized brands in the world, and founder Hugh Hefner is an integral part of that brand. We strongly felt that Good Samaritan Program's registration of the URL hughhefner.com was in bad faith, used solely for the purpose of attracting traffic to Good Samaritan sites."
Good Samaritan did not respond to the complaint and presented no evidence to the panel.

Sin City Films Plays Games with Its Members
The games people play, eh? Sin City Films knows how much folks like to play and that's why the company has joined forces with online gaming creator, XAMO (www.xamo.com).
The cross-promotional venture allows XAMO gamers to play the graphically appealing games and win Sin City DVDs. This sort of collaborative incentive building is expected to appeal to site visitors and be profitable for all involved.
Mark Baker, (AKA Alien), Sin City’s Webmaster, who spearheaded the deal with Derek Smout of XAMO says, "We are always open to ideas at Sin City that gives value to consumers and creates a win, win situation for everyone. It is obvious that the adult content as a whole on the internet needs to be more entertaining than constantly creating new ways to reach in a customer's wallet."
