LOS ANGELES—Adult star and Penthouse Pet Chanel Preston launched an Indiegogo.com campaign to help fund her sex-positive website and webisode series, Naked With Chanel. The site will give men and women a platform to discuss and learn about sex in a fun and comfortable way.
Of the name of the site and series, Chanel explained, “I want to help people shed the inhibitions and negative attitudes currently keeping them from understanding themselves better - hence the name, Naked With Chanel. [The goal is to] help people get naked metaphorically, so they can lead more informed and fulfilled lives.”
To date, the campaign has raised over $2,000 of its $10,000 goal to date. For more information about Naked With Chanel, or to make a donation, please click here.
“I want to address social issues surrounding sexuality in America and help people become more informed about how our attitudes about sex are affecting our lives,” Chanel explained. “In my time in [the adult] industry, I have seen people's lives change when they are given the tools to feel more comfortable with themselves which, in turn, has lead them to make better decisions.”
Crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com allows people from all over the world to use social media and micro-investment platforms to fund passion projects. Unleashed in 2008 to the independent film industry, the site expanded in 2009 to include all industries. As one of the leading international crowdfunding platforms, Indiegogo.com has raised millions of dollars for thousands of campaigns worldwide by allowing project creators a welcoming, supportive community that embraces collaboration, fearlessness and authenticity.
“I decided to go with Indiegogo.com because it allows me the chance to make this a community project from the very beginning,” said Chanel. “By inviting my fans, friends, and all supporters of sex-positive platforms to be ‘investors’ in Naked With Chanel, it allows everyone to be a part of this entire project.”
Chanel encourages her fans and all those interested in supporting Naked With Chanel to visit her Indiegogo.com page to contribute: “I have worked hard to change people's minds about the stigmas surrounding sex and will continue to help address issues harming our sexual psyche,” Chanel declared. “Be a part of the change we so desperately need, in order to feel comfortable with who we are individually, and learn how that can make our society a better place.”
Preston, a former exotic dancer in her adopted home state of Hawaii, entered the adult industry in 2010. Blessed with natural good looks and an unwavering drive, she earned Best New Starlet awards in 2011 from XRCO, NightMoves, XCritic, CAVR, and the Galaxy Awards. This year, she was named Best Female Performer (Fan’s Choice) at the 21st annual NightMoves Awards.
Chanel is the host and face of Inside Adult, X3Sixty’s cable entertainment program, dubbed the “Entertainment Tonight of the adult industry.” Now in its second season, “Inside Adult” broadcasts to over 20 million homes via On-Demand networks.
