Porn Biz Looking to Cash in on Anthony Weiner Scandal
NEW YORK — With only a few months left before the November New York City mayoral election, the porn industry is hot to cash in on candidate Anthony Weiner’s sex scandals.
TMZ has secured a video of Vivid Entertainment founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch entertaining Weiner's sexting partner, Sydney Leathers outside of Vivid’s Los Angeles headquarters in what could evolve into the next big celeb sex tape.
Hirsch told XBIZ, “We have offered Sydney several options but as of now no agreement has been reached. We hope to get a deal done with her soon."
Weiner was nabbed sexting with Leathers under the moniker “Carlos Danger” after he resigned from his Congressional post.
And Monarchy Distribution honcho Mike Kulich in a Forbes interview talked about his upcoming Weiner-inspired movie, “Don’t Pull Out,” due to street Sept. 11. Kulich said he will donate 15 percent of the movie's profits to the struggling politician’s campaign who has recently dropped to fourth place in the New York mayoral race.
Kulich told Forbes that he respects the fact that Weiner admitted to his wrongdoings.
The movie will include two old scenes of Ginger Lee, a former porn star and stripper who repeatedly chatted with Weiner online before his troubles began. It also features seven scenes with Haley Sweet, Asa Akira, Brooklyn Lee, Lexi Love and Pressley Carter.
Kulich described a newer scene to Forbes, “It starts off with her sexting her teacher Professor Wiener. He leaves his phone in the teachers lounge and another teacher finds it. She confronts him about the text. The next day [porn star] Haley [Sweet] comes in and he asks her to come in his office. He tries to cut off ties but she seduces him into one more time on his desk.”
Although Hustler’s a likely studio to take on a Weiner film considering the success of the “Nailin’ Palin” parody, a company spokesman told Forbes, “Mr. Flynt says that Anthony Weiner has become a parody of himself, and that we have no plans to parody the parody.”
But some smaller porn studios are trying to expoit the Weiner scandal. Porn MILF Alesia Pleasure’s Alesia Pleasure Entertainment recently announced the release of its “Finding Weiner, A XXX Parody.” The promo says, “Join Alesia as she experiences the trials and sexual tribulations of Anthony Weiner. His texting fantasies turn into borderline reality. Or does it?”
Not all of the frenzy is new, however. The gay market was quick to profit from Weiner’s original infamous Internet pic scandal in 2011 with the release of the Jet Set Men spoof, “Anthony’s Weener,” that’s reportedly a top seller.
