Yanks.com Grabs Industry Spotlight with New VR Content, Award Noms for 2017

All-Girl Porn Site Gets Boost with Amateur ‘Reality’ Scenes 
Yanks.com, the 100% female-produced amateur erotica content site created for women, men and couples, continues to make waves in the industry with a new collection of scenes that shine a spotlight on real women performing in real first-time sexual situations. 

 

The company, which received both AVN and XBIZ awards nominations this year for its all-new, all-girl VR content with YanksVR – has helped usher in a new wave of amateur ‘reality porn’ where viewers build a virtual relationship with performers to better experience the raw energy of their scenes. 

 

“Our performers present themselves in an all-natural, approachable way to appeal to customers that appreciate real women,” said Todd Spaits, CMO of Yanks.com, “and Virtual Reality’s first-person/one-on-one POV angle adds to that appeal exponentially, bringing these girls to life.”

 

Yanks.com delivers playful erotic scenarios of all-natural women in both solo situations and pairings, highlighting the ecstasy of the performers’ explosive female orgasms while playing with toys, water and their adventurous friends. 

 

The founders of Yanks.com, Spaits and partner/CEO Billie Miller developed the concept of everyday women having first-time sex on camera back in 2002 when popular porn stars ruled and amateur video was still a burgeoning entertainment concept. 

 

“Our all-female shooting team presents women’s sexuality in a more natural way,” said Spaits. “We are proud to present women who create a genuine and authentic experience for the viewer, as the performers in our movies do what THEY want to do… no scripts, no faked orgasms, just pure ecstasy.”

Dan and Shay Martin of Vibratex to be Recognized at XBIZ Awards

Thank you so much!  “We are delighted and humbled”

Dan and Shay Martin will be recognized this evening, January 12, at the 2017 XBIZ Awards with the Pioneer Award.

One of the industry’s most prestigious honors, the Pioneer Award recognizes company figures who have had a profound impact on the industry through vision, innovation and courage, and continue to provide a guiding light for those who came after them.

d81477b1-19b6-4b37-99dd-63aef24a3f3a
Dan and Shay would like for all Vibratex customers and all their friends in the industry to know how grateful and humbled they are.

“We are so touched by this generous recognition, and we want to thank our friends and customers in the industry from the bottom of our hearts,” says Shay Martin, who started helping out in the family business during her high school years, and has served as Vice President since 1999.

To this day, Vibratex continues to be a second-generation, family-owned company, based in Napa, Calif. The company prides itself on its unique, thoughtfully crafted pleasure pieces and on its long-standing dedication to product quality and consumer satisfaction.
Vibratex rose to fame over 30 years ago by introducing America to the blended-orgasm vibrator (today, the Rabbit Habit Original Deluxe).

Later, the company was instrumental in saving the iconic Magic Wand massager not once but twice. First, when Hitachi had stopped sales to the US market, and then a second time when the Japanese company decided to remove its name from the Magic Wand.

More recently, Vibratex brought the cordless Magic Wand Rechargeable to consumers, together with Hitachi. Vibratex remains the sole importer to North America of the Magic Wand.

In addition to their work with Vibratex and Magic Wand branded products, Dan and Shay have supported people coming into industry, and have helped new brands get off the ground, like We-Vibe and Jimmyjane.

“We’ve seen such wonderful change in our industry over the years,” reflects Shay Martin.

“The empowerment of women, greater openness about sexuality, acceptance of others and so many amazing products brought about by innovation and thinking outside the box. But one thing that has not changed is the fact that we all support each other in this business and are like a big family. For that we are continually grateful,” she concludes.

The 2017 Pioneer Award recipients will be honored on January 12 during an on-screen segment at the adult industry’s biggest night, the 2017 XBIZ Awards show at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Other Pioneer Award recipients this year are Ron Cadwell of CCBill, Kelly Holland of Penthouse and Larry Garland of Eldorado.

 Company Behind The Semenette® & POPDildo™ Recognized by Industry Peers & Colleagues!

Berman Innovations and its innovative ejaculating dildo receives three nominations for the 2017 XBIZ Awards. POP by The Semenette®, also known as POPDildo™ (http://POPDildo.com), is nominated for both Sex Toy of the Year (Non-Powered) and Specialty Product / Line of the Year; Berman Innovations itself is additionally nominated for LGBT Pleasure Products Company of the Year.

Initially creating its flagship toy out of a desire to solve a problem for lesbian couples wishing to circumvent the IVF process, Berman Innovations has since seen an ever-increasing demand from a wide range of sex-positive communities, for the second iteration of its patented pleasure product.

“I am overwhelmed with excitement at receiving 3 XBIZ award nominations!” says CEO and inventor Stephanie Berman. “This has been a year of new beginnings, with the launch of POPDildo™ – filled with so much growth and positive feedback about our new toy. I’m thrilled to have our efforts recognized by the industry and our peers. I am so passionate about sexual health education, especially for my fellow LGBTQ+ community members, which makes me particularly proud of the ‘LGBT Pleasure Products Company of the Year’ nomination. Thank you, XBIZ, and congratulations to all of the nominees!”

In addition to its pleasure products nominations, Berman Innovations congratulates Aiden Starr for her Fetish Release of the Year nomination for “Lesbian Anal Sex Slaves 2,” in which POPDildo™ was used prominently as a featured main prop. The film, distributed by Evil Angel Video, has been heralded by sales staff and reviewers alike, as being the first film to showcase ‘cum shots’ in all-girl scenes.

“I am so happy for Adien’s work to be recognized with this nomination!” continues Berman. “This was the first movie that POPDildo™ was featured in, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person, performer, or director to have worked with. Aiden has a very unique style, and she showcased another way of using POPDildo™ perfectly. Congratulations!”

Of the film, Justin Rich, Evil Angel’s domestic sales manager, says, “The first release in [Starr’s] series did really well with a potent brew of popular niches — lesbian, plus strap-on, plus anal, plus slave kink. This new one extends that with a special attraction: finally, an all-girl movie has cum shots!”

The impressive cast list for the film features Daisy Ducati, Ziggy Star, Casey Calvert, Sovereign Syre, Kimberly Kane, Yhivi, Skin Diamond, and the director herself.

The Semenette® (http://TheSemenette.com), a novelty intimacy product, allows partners to re-create the ejaculation process in the privacy of their own home, through its proprietary inner tubing and pump system. Berman herself is the first of many Semenette® success stories; she and her wife successfully used the product to conceive their daughter and son. The product experienced its first viral wave soon after its launch in early 2015, and global media attention has not waned about the company’s innovative approach to at-home conception for the LGBT, FTM / trans, disabled, and serodiscordant communities.
