LOS ANGELES — Popular Internet solo-babe Lia 19, now known just as Lia, has been named the newest Vivid Girl. The move marks Lia’s debut in adult movies and the first time she will perform hardcore scenes.

The Scottsdale, Ariz.-native is a web sensation whose had her own site for a number of years. Lia19.com will stay with its current affiliate program FTVGirls.com.

Up until her signing with Vivid, Lia had never done a hardcore scene with a girl or guy — something her fans have been clamoring for — and she pledges to finally fulfill them now that she’s a Vivid Girl.

“I think one of the reasons that my site is so popular is because I don’t hold anything back,” Lia said. “Sure, it helps that I look good, I’m all natural, I’m tattoo free and I love my fans. I don’t take them for granted for a minute however, and really work at making them happy with new, sexy content.

“I’m very excited as to how they will react to my move to hardcore. A few fans may be freaked out about it, in which case I’ll tell them it’s still me. You’re just seeing me in a new light, so give it a chance. I think, however, that most of my fans will be downright eager to see my first film.”

While Lia’s an experienced model and solo performer, her “first on-camera everything” in addition to her Internet marketing savvy are a few ingredients that attracted Vivid co-chairman Steve Hirsch.

"We were not only impressed with Lia's enthusiasm to be a contract actress with Vivid, but with her accomplishments as a web entrepreneur," Hirsch said. "She has a loyal following of fans from her site and she's taken careful steps in her career from a mainstream to bikini to nude model. Now that she's ready for hardcore, we're happy to welcome her."

Lia considers herself a “guy’s girl” who loves sports.

"I'm definitely a girl who is one of the guys,” she said. “I love sports. I was a swimmer, lifeguard and water polo player in high school. I got into golf while I was modeling and found out I'm pretty good. I think my handicap is around 12 now and if I wasn't pursuing a career in adult, I'd try to get better and earn my living playing golf.

“Even though I'm from Arizona I'm a diehard New York Giants fan and I'm always wearing my grungy old Giants jersey. I watch ESPN and the Discovery and History Channels. I'm a gamer (favorite game: 'Resident Evil'). I operate my own business and even photograph the models for the website. On the other hand, I love being a girl, love to shop and collect Coco Chanel clothes and accessories."

Eric H, operations manager for Webquest, the company that runs Vivid’s web operations, has known Lia for years and believes in her potential to make the move to video work.

“Lia is young, gorgeous, sexy and a web superstar,” Eric H said. “She’s already an iconic presence in her respective niche and I’m thrilled about her doing hardcore. I know that she will be a huge hit on Vivid.com. She’s going going to make a great Vivid Girl.”
