NEW YORK — ABC's "Nightline" tonight will feature an episode on Sssh.com, a site that features steamy featurettes and other forms of erotica.
The adult site is included in an episode on the explosive popularity of the book, "50 Shades of Grey."
The episode was shot over two days in February when the "Nightline" crew traveled to New England to cover the making of a Sssh.com movie titled "Ellington: A Sssh.com Erotic Fairy Tale."
ABC describes the movie as "a kind of X-rated, modern Cinderella story."
"It feels like a cross between a date movie and the kinds of tapes teenage boys hide in their closets. About 40 minutes of romantic plotting, and a 10-minute scene of fairly hardcore porn," according to ABC producers Abbie Boudreau and Aude Soichet.
Angie Rowntree, the creator and owner of Sssh.com, said the demand for her site keeps growing. About one in three woman now admit that they watch porn.
"What our audience wants is to see a passionate love scene that is filled with chemistry and sensuality, like that beach novel that comes to life where the hero comes and whisks off the heroine, makes wild passionate love to her," Rowntree said. "They want a storyline ... like the romance novel come to life."
