LOS ANGELES—Wicked Pictures has announced that it has teamed up with High Society magazine to present an innovative new collaborative project - the Wicked Digital Magazine. The debut edition of this multi-platform "magazine on DVD" is scheduled to reach newsstands nationwide on Nov. 17.
Described by the publishers as the "first digital magazine of the adult newsstand," the Wicked Digital Magazine delivers over four hours of award-winning sex scenes, interviews, Wicked news, timely behind-the-scenes footage, and XXX trailers.
The exclusive DVD comes packaged in a fold-out collector's poster featuring Wicked Girls Stormy Daniels, jessica drake, Kaylani Lei, Kirsten Price, Alektra Blue, and Mikayla Mendez in hardcore action. As another bonus, two of the 12 sex scenes are fully downloadable and may be consumed on cell phones, PDAs, and other portable devices. The package also includes a special offer for a 50% off membership to Wicked.com.
Each issue of the magazine will be hosted by an individual Wicked Girl, with 2009 AVN Best Actress Drake doing the honors for the premiere edition. She guides the viewer through a virtual Wicked wonderland that includes her exclusive Naked Rant, Wicked News, and her all-new interview with performer Alexis Texas. That interview is followed by a downloadable new scene featuring Alexis and Marcus London.
Drake also contributes an all-new scene as well that is free to download. Then she steps behind the corporate veil to conduct an interview with Wicked VP Of Special Projects Joy King.
In addition, the Stormy vehicle Tormented is the focus of a Behind-the-Scenes piece, and exclusive coverage is also devoted to Brad Armstrong's current AVN Editor's Choice 2040. The other 10 sex scenes include an anal excursion featuring Julia Ann.
The entire package contains over four hours of exclusive Wicked DVD content and an exclusive collector's poster. The suggested retail price is $9.99.
Vincent Stevens, vice president of publishing for High Society's parent company Blue Horizon Media, Inc., remarked, "With the adult print medium in a state of flux, this effort is one in which we are using the newsstand to reach out to all the fans of High Society and Wicked and giving them what they want in a whole new way. We have great hopes for this project and look forward to rolling out six editions a year."
Wicked Pictures president Steve Orenstein shares Stevens' enthusiasm, saying, "We work together with the folks at High Society on many different levels and it was exciting to add this project to that list. I believe we created a unique product. Joy King did an amazing job pulling this together and working with High Society. And it's no surprise that jessica drake, who hosts this first volume, did a fantastic job with her hosting and interviewing duties."
