TLA celebrates the female form in all her glory with the launch of TLARaw.com, a new site and catalog that shines the spotlight on the ladies.
Lovers of skin and sex will enjoy a selection of thousands of DVDs, boxed sets, calendars, books, and novelties, ranging from Hollywood movies with naked starlets to the hardest of hardcore DVDs.
Some of its newest releases include Wicked’s three new four-hour boxed sets and Devils Film’s 50 Guy Cream Pie 2-Pack.
The site is also working with leading adult studios and filmmakers to create exclusive offers, like the Jules Jordan 3-Pack, a collection of his early works: Heavy Metal, Bottom Feeders, and DNA: Deep in Ass. TLARaw.com is also offering the first adult UMD, Virtual Lap Dances No. 1, from Bouncy Pictures.
The site is arranged into four areas: non-adult DVDs, adult DVDs, on-demand, and novelties.
The non-adult DVDs area is a specialty of TLARaw.com, designed for those who like their skin not too extreme. It’s headlined by the Japanese exploitation classic, The Pinky Violence Collection, and features such titles as AVN Best Mainstream Adult Release nominees Anatomy of Hell and Arakimentari, released by Tartan Video and distributed by TLA Releasing.
The heart and soul of TLARaw.com is the Adult DVDsarea. Lining the contents page are studio indexes, special offers, and various top 10 lists.
Aligned with that is the on-demand section. Launched in summer 2005, TLA on-demand offers three video streaming options for adult DVDs—pay-per-minute, streaming rental, and downloads.
The final section, novelties, offers a toy chest of hundreds of brand name and generic items of all kinds.
Four special promotions will help launch the site in January and February. There will be a TLA Raw drawing at AEE, where fans can enter a drawing to win a Panasonic Home Theater System and 10 2006 AVN Award-winning DVDs. The Hot Storm HD-DVD Contest features anime producer Hot Storm, which has released its first HD anime DVDs, Arisa, Vol. 1 and 2, so TLA Raw is having a contest to give away an HD-DVD player. Sensational Gangbangs gives a free copy of Gangbangers 4 to anyone who buys a DVD from Sensational Video on the site in January. Zero Tolerance in February rewards consumers who purchase a Zero Tolerance Entertainment title during February with another title free from the studio.
Accompanying the website is the 48-page, full-color catalog, with more than 500 titles and featuring Sophia Rossi, star of Jenna Jameson’s directorial debut The Provocateur, on the cover.
Spearheading the creation of TLARaw.com is managing editor Vanessa Keegan, who took the position in 2002 and began publishing the catalogs.
“The catalogs proved so successful that we wanted to create a place on the Web where our customers could feel right at home, surrounded by all things skin,” says Keegan. “Our old site at TLAVideo.com had just a bit too much respectability for them. We wanted our own place full of skin and sex and no shame.”
