Effective immediately, the deal brings the web studios’ "art-house erotica" under the guise of the licensing agency.
"X-Art.com and Collete.com are two of the most outstanding studios in the industry with a huge subscriber base that consistently place their sites in the top viewed sites in the market," SoCal Licensing President Jim Crawford said.
"We are geared up and ready to offer this award-winning portfolio of in demand content," he continued. "With a diverse array of content, including couples and female-friendly content, all-girl, interracial, solo, bondage play, as well as many other popular niches, we can fulfill the needs of all our broadcast partners.”
Founded by husband-and-wife entrepreneurs Colette and Brigham Field, X-Art.com launched in 2008 with the goal of elevating adult cinema to a mainstream aesthetic. In 2013, British GQ described X-Art.com as makers of “the world’s most sophisticated cinema erotica.” The website was named "Adult Site of the Year – Erotic" at the 2015 XBIZ Awards.
Colette.com launched last year with "edgier" content and, like X-Art.com, features cinematic sex scenes, exotic locations and models, many of whom have walked down fashion runways.
