LOS ANGELES — Pleasure Radio, a new Internet radio station covering the adult industry, has launched with three weekly live shows.
Based in Phoenix, Pleasure Radio broadcasts on PleasureRadio.fm and is also available through Android radio apps that can be found in Google, MiKandi and AdultAppMart and are available for download in more than 250 countries.
Adult industry newcomer Tony P. created Pleasure Radio in an effort to connect fans with the adult industry “through the power of radio.”
“We also wanted to assist organizations like FSC and ASACP to clear up misconceptions and misunderstandings on the adult entertainment industry,” said P., a native of California who grew up in El Paso, Texas.
Derek D and Peter Dickem host the live flagship Pleasure Radio show every Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m. PST, and then again from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and 8 to 10 p.m. every Saturday. Today’s show will feature Kay Brandt, a producer/director for JewelBox Films and Digital Playground, and Jesse A. from MiKandi.
Dickem is a Phoenix-based producer, performer and webmaster.
Pleasure Radio, which launched on Sept. 16, is also fully licensed to play mainstream music which it does throughout the day. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day to accommodate to its growing international audience. P. said Pleasure Radio is making all its interviews available on demand in addition to airing encore shows prior to the next live broadcast.
There are three versions of Pleasure Radio, the free app (with ads in all marketplaces), the ad free version for 99 cents in Google only, and the hardcore version (no ads, with hardcore radio, videos and images) in Mikandi and AdultAppMart for $1.99.
“What we want to do with Pleasure is create a cool adult radio station where everyone can talk about anything to do with sex and adult entertainment without censorship,” P. said. “The generation is changing and we want to be on the forefront of breaking taboos and telling our listeners that it’s ok to have those fantasies and fetishes because we have them too. Most importantly, we want to truly exercise our right to free speech.”
He continued, “We didn’t want to make it just any podcast, we wanted to make it into a full-blown radio station. Our motto is that it’s adult entertainment radio for adults by adults.”
