NEW YORK—Adult industry legend Candida Royalle has been busy proving that quality equals longevity—even in an industry where tomorrow’s hits become yesterday’s old news as fast as you can say, “what was the name of that movie again?”
Considered a pioneer in creating and marketing erotic products and films to women, Royalle was prominently featured on the Aug. 12 edition of ABC’s Nightline in a piece about the growing popularity of adult material with women.
Royalle’s Natural Contours intimate massagers received major accolades in the July issue of Redbook Magazine. In a feature called “Our best sex advice EVER - tried and tested,” the Natural Contours LIBERTÉ (a “multitalented massager”) received a “Red-sizzlin’-hot” rating by the couples who tried it out.
Working with Dutch industrial designers, Groet Design, to create massagers that are tasteful, stylish and ergonomically correct, Natural Contours released their first three models in 1999. Since then, their original design elements have been both lauded and imitated by many who followed close behind.
In the same week that TIME OUT NEW YORK described Royalle’s mixed ethnic couples hit, AfroDite Superstar as “tasteful and femme-friendly,” Royalle was also noted on CNN.com in an article reprinted from Oprah.com for creating “erotic videos made expressly for women.”
In an effort to launch the careers of other women looking to explore erotica from a uniquely female perspective, Royalle will release Feeling It! , directed by European filmmaker Petra Joy whose features have won several awards and nominations in Europe and Canada. Scheduled for an early winter release, this will mark the debut of Petra Joy’s work in the U.S. market.
Is it any wonder Playboy.com named Royalle one of “America’s Sexiest CEOs”?
