CHATSWORTH, Calif. — New gay studio Sparta Video has hired industry veteran Holly Ruprecht to run its new affiliate program.

Ruprecht's resume includes stints at such eminent studios as NakedSword and Cybersocket. Sparta Video representatives said she'll put that experience to use as she takes charge of their affiliate and media relationships while also leading the launch of its new affiliate program,

Ruprecht said she's excited to join the Sparta team.

“Sparta is an up-and-coming studio, with strong roots in the adult video production realm, and strong business management," she said. "Alex and Jim, were looking to use that experience to develop something unique for the gay market, and I am excited about not only, helping their move into this market, but also in being involved in building something great from inception.”

Concurrent with the hire of Ruprecht, Sparta Video also is rolling out a new release, "Bareback Packers 2." Sparta Video founder Jim Crawford said that the original "Bareback Packers" got a good enough response to warrant a second installment.

Sparta co-founder Alex Ladd agreed, adding that he and the Sparta team sought to fill a need in the gay video scene.

"After analyzing the gay market place, we felt there was a lack of good gonzo style content," he said. "So we got together and decided to give the all-male erotic genre fans what they have been waiting for: high-end, shot in HD, bareback hardcore."
