Screening Party Affirms Success of “An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers Party in San Francisco”

(Chatsworth, CA) – There was standing room only during Saturday night’s screening party for Private Media Group’s “An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers Party in San Francisco” at Club Kiss in San Francisco, a testament to the buzz that’s been surrounding the film since its June 17th release.

The July 17th soiree commenced with a one hour panel discussion on the contemporary swinging lifestyle, lead by “An Open Invitation” director Ilana Rothman and leading actress India Summer, as well as Club Kiss hosts and “An Open Invitation” cast members Sarah and Chris Kiss, and Carol Queen, grand dame of San Francisco’s progressive sex scene.

While introducing the panel, Carol Queen expressed that “An Open Invitation” brought her back to the golden ages, where adult cinema was vying for a place alongside mainstream cinema.

Club Kiss noted that they’d never seen so many people attend a discussion panel, and while the event was at capacity, several guests commented that they wished the panel had gone on longer. A full screening of the movie followed the panel presentation, as well as an incredible after party, where couples who were talking about modern relationships only moments before were able to jump in and experience them.

The party moved into full swing with pole dancing, goodies distributed by Good Vibrations, and the stunning Ilana Rothman, along with several other cast and party attendees, mingling with guests. Kelly Moe, the musician responsible for the “An Open Invitation” soundtrack, was also performing live at the event. Moe’s music earned “An Open Invitation” an AVN nomination for Best Movie Soundtrack.

Mainstream news outlets were also impressed, with the New York Times, USA Today, and Reality Check TV conducting extensive interviews with the cast and creators of the movie.

“The party was amazing – a huge success,” commented the “An Open Invitation” creator, Andrew Sullivan. “People actually came up to me afterwards, saying they wished the discussion had gone on longer. When has that ever happened at an adult screening?”

“An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers Party in San Francisco” has taken the industry by storm this year, finding resonance with a community left relatively unexplored in contemporary adult entertainment. Pre-nominated for a momentous 13 AVN awards and given AVN’s highest rating, the movie has already leapt to #1 on Gamelink’s VOD site with record setting sales.

Porn CEO: Don’t Fight Piracy With DRM

Posted on July 8th, 2010 in Adult Industry News,GameLink by tmasters

Private Media Group was one of the first companies to offer iPad-optimized porn downloads when the device shipped in early April. However, users won’t find Ibiza Sex Party, Nylon Nymphomania or any other Private movie in Apple’s iPad store, and the Cupertino-based computer maker doesn’t allow any adult-themed apps in its app store either. So Private had only once choice to sell downloads for the device: Offer them free of any DRM content protection.

Private CEO Ilan Bunimovitz didn’t seem too worried about the prospect of some of these files finding their way online when I reached him by phone in his company’s headquarters in Barcelona, Spain yesterday. “Free and pirated content is available regardless of whether the encoding is done by us or not,” he told me.

That doesn’t mean Private isn’t alarmed by piracy; in fact, the company is determined to pursue legal action against sites redistributing its work. But punishing paying customers isn’t the right approach to deal with the issue, according to Bunimovitz. “The way to fight piracy is not to limit who you sell content to, it’s by fighting pirates,” he said.

Private and its VOD site Gamelink.com also offer HTML5 streams for iPad and iPhone users, and Bunimovitz told me that the company sees a shift away from downloads and toward streams. He called the iPad “an incredible device for consumers,” but cautioned not to view it as the end game for adult or other entertainment content online. “We are not in the iPad business,” he told me.

Instead, Private aims to embrace all available platforms, be it mobile, the PC or even Google TV. The company is working on a cross-platform strategy that will allow customers to seamlessly switch between different devices. “Once you (buy) this piece of content, it’s yours on any screen you own”, explained Bunimovitz.

Private is one of the biggest players in the adult industry. The company is NASDAQ-listed and generated around €23 million (about $29 million) in revenue in 2009. But it has seen its DVD and magazine business erode from around €10.9 million in 2007 to €3.8 million in 2009 while its online revenue tripled during the same period.

Those numbers mirror an industry undergoing a rapid transition, and Bunimovitz is determined to come out on top. He told me during the end of our conversation that he even has the right mantra for the job: “If something is about to cannibalize my business, it better be me.”
