French Connection Goes Straight for 'Twilight of Virginity'

JC Adams
LOS ANGELES — All-male production and distribution house The French Connection is crossing genres with "Twilight of Virginity," a twist on the mainstream vampire-romance film "Twilight" and the company's first straight-porn release.

The erotic spoof was written and produced by the singly named Gutzenstein, and directed by Dick Tracy. It was shot in the home of Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx.

Featured players include Brooke Belle, Jenaveve Jolie, Vanessa Leon, Sativa Rose and Rachel Roxxx with Cheyne Collins, Mark Davis and Reno.

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton plugged the movie on his popular site earlier this month.

"We're all about offering a wide range of products to our customers," said French Connection owner Christopher Hull. "And now we can offer them some really great straight porn, too."

"We had to move on a chance to spoof 'Twilight,' since everyone was going crazy over it, " said a Gutzenstein Productions rep. "During lunch with Chris Hull, I pitched him the idea and he wanted to sell it for us."

"Plus, we couldn't pass up having the porn stars playing baseball half-naked," the rep said, referencing a famous scene from the book and film. "We just couldn't pass it up."

"Twilight of Virginity" streets May 22. For wholesale-retail information, contact Nick Gardner at The French Connection via email or call (800) 962-0902.
