Kink Leaves, Twin Peaks Returns

San Francisco Armory

Having been home to the notorious studio’s productions since 2006, Kink.com is moving out of the San Francisco Armory, the Moorish fort that founder Peter Acworth acquired over ten years ago. A national landmark that soon became the center of many controversies surrounding the outlandish and outspoken porn studio, the Armory will still hold Kink’s offices but production will move to Southern California, Nevada, and elsewhere in the Bay Area, just not so close to the historically sexually-liberated Castro district.

Arguably the hippest studio of the hipster-porn explosion, it makes perfect sense that Kink would hold off on one of its signature extreme fetish parody porn efforts until the final day inside the Armory, keeping one ultra-hot pop-culture property on reserve until the very end. A natural fit for a studio that helped make the careers of Tommy Pistol, Ella Nova, James Deen, and Sasha Grey, the final episode to be shot inside the Armory sees David Lynch and Mark Frost’s acclaimed TV series Twin Peaks, itself about to be relaunched, as the subject of an utterly intense Hardcore Gangbang.

Director Maitresse Madeline Marlowe, who calls herself a “huge fan” of avant grade and surrealist cinema, cast Amber Ivy as the town’s teenage flirt-queen Audrey Horne, and chose to focus on One Eyed Jack’s, the Canadian border brothel owned by business magnate Ben Horne, Audrey’s father. Dipping a toe into incest themes, coercion, prostitution and servitude, and, of course, hot black coffee and cherry pie.

‘Damn Fine Pie!’ sees Ms. Ivy working at One Eyed Jack’s, the former workplace of her murdered schoolmate Laura Palmer, in an effort to uncover the truth about her family’s involvement in such shady business dealings. With co-stars Tommy Pistol as Dr. Lawrence Jacoby, Owen Grey as stoic biker boy James Hurley, Will Havoc as cokehead quarterback Bobby Briggs, Jon Jon as Leo Johnson, and Mickey Mod as Ben Horne, seen here poking a finger into his daughter’s mouth.

Damn Fine Pie

But, wait, where’s Bob?

Kink.com has officially left the San Francisco Armory but will continue to explore and expand the outer limits of sexual entertainment from its new facilities. Twin Peaks returns to television next week, debuting on Showtime May 21st. ‘Damn Fine Pie!’ is available now from Kink.com.

Fans Fund Adult Gaming at Kimochi

Kimochi

Last week Mr. Pink’s brought you the lowdown on an oddity in the adult entertainment world: an online game emporium loaded with independently-owned titles created by some very promising and often quite accomplished game designers. Unlike the mainstream gaming world and its obsession with violence as primary vice, the majority of games featured at Nutaku explored lust, love, attraction, and all sorts of fetishes and taboos. Some were free. Others cost anywhere up to $60. Some were single player text-based adventures. Others were massive multiplayer online experiences designed to keep you participating and growing the world along with your virtual sexual opportunities and triumphs. “But where,” I hear you ask, “does a designer get the time and funding to produce such epics of immersive adult entertainment when he’s likely got bills to pay, a family to feed, and real career opportunities to explore?” That, my friends, is where crowd-funding platform Kimochi comes in.

Claiming to essentially be the unicorn of crowdfunding websites – anime! porn! a no-profit M.O. that keeps the money in game development! – Kimochi presents its Red Light program to aspiring adult gaming entrepreneurs to help them finish and launch their creations, and to bring these games to a wide international audience. Designers from France, the UK, and the USA are among those turning to Kimochi Red Light for support, and to a prospective base of gamers willing to lend a hand financially. Taking donations of all sizes and allotting Rewards for contributions of different amounts, from exclusive digital character sketches and design previews to early beta release access, in-game credits, and premium bonus content to enhance your playing experience, each design team details their plans, their progress, and aim to please those who help them reach their goals.

Anyone who found Nutaku’s strong selection of produced games, ready to be played and enjoyed and obsessed over by a salivating one-handed audience of adult gamers, enticing should scope out Kimochi’s various offerings. From visual novels to RPGs to dating sims to card and puzzle games, there’s a burgeoning generation of sex-savvy game designers that need your help and really only one place to go, digital funds in hand, to ensure the survival and success of their games. Nice work, Kimochi! Yatta!

XXX Gaming with Nutaku

Nutaku

Having slowly but surely risen to a position of dominance in the entertainment industry after decades of dismissal and ridicule, video games are now considered both powerful economic commodities and intrinsically artistic creations. So, in that way at least, the Final Fantasy series is kinda like one of Mike Adriano’s longer-running, high-numbered anal exploration series. There has been many attempts to meld adult entertainment and gaming to varying success over the decades. Now, with Twitch and Steam making online gaming more communal than ever, many adult gamers have been clamoring for a digital repository for the best in sexually oriented gaming from the thousands of designers and engineers trying to push the art form to its next level. That’s where Nutaku comes in…

Nutaku acts as an eye-catching online games store in which almost every single title is of a seriously sexual nature. From RPGs and action-adventure to trivia, card, and puzzle games to massively multiplayer online fantasy worlds inhabited by nubile wenches with whom you can, if you play your gin rummy right, copulate. In three main categories – Browser, Downloadable, and Mobile Games – Nutaku provides something for every adult gaming fiend. Well, as long as your tastes align with hentai tropes, that is. Almost exclusively styled in the traditions of Japanese animation, the varying types of games allow for different levels of immersion, character development, and intricate plotting. The more basic games provide modest obstacles to be easily overcome and each success is rewarded handsomely by a wanton vixen. Other games reward your return visits to Nutaku and your continued dedication to a created character.

Fans of the classic Leisure Suit Larry series will recognize that character and game’s influence here with most of the non-hentai Nutaku titles following a similar path to the myriad misadventures of that most famous of pixilated lotharios. Other more-Western offerings see card games with decks adorned with photos of known pornstars and loose parodies or lampoons of US entertainment properties. Mostly, though, it’s hentai-style angels, demons, pixies, cyborg warriors, princesses, schoolgirls, and other feisty female sprites that you’ll be gawking at, one hand on your mouse, the other who-knows-where.

Nutaku is free to join and, upon validating their provided email address, each member can freely partake of more than twenty free in-browser games or choose to spend Nutaku’s currency, digital gold coins, which can be purchased for roughly USD 1¢ each, on downloadable games (from the current collection of 72). Downloadable games are priced between $1 and $45, most of the higher-priced titles being Visual Novel titles – essentially a manga/anime/hentai hybrid form. System requirements are posted with every title and generally allow for use on Windows and Mac systems, as well as occasional Linux support. In-browser games are presented via Flash and Java and should work flawlessly with latest versions of Firefox and Chrome.

One of the more unique aspects of Nutaku is the facilitation of discussion between gamers and game designers that aims to lead both parties towards a more fulfilling and enjoyable style of adult gaming. In fact, Nutaku is even tied to Kimochi, a crowd-funding site exclusively for adult game projects. We’ll be taking a look at Kimochi’s burgeoning breakthrough games. Until then, why not mosey on over to Nutaku and see what kind of trouble you can get yourself into, virtually speaking?
