qb81_loslixalogosmblack1200PHOENIX, AZ., October 30th, 2013 – On the eve of their one year anniversary, Slixa.com (http://www.Slixa.com) was recognized in an Xbiz news report (http://www.xbiz.com/news/170491) as a site that champions for change. Xbiz writer Lila Gray reports, “Slixa has elevated the voice of entertainers by offering a novel platform geared toward humanizing escorts via high-end aesthetics and hands-on advocacy.”

Humanizing & Escorts? Advocacy & Advertising? These aren’t words seen typically combined in one sentence. But Lila goes on to say of Slixa, “it doesn’t throw its primary advertorial focus under the bus. Instead, it strives for ethically conscious promotion of its entertainers.”

Early on, Slixa garnered the attention of mainstream media such as Business Insider and other notables, for this type of stand-out difference. It has since gained evangelistic loyalty among its advertisers which Xbiz notes are “a network of more than 3,000 entertainers communally bound by their branding as Slixa Girls.” This communal bond may be due in part to the direct contributions (https://www.slixa.com/under-cover/431-slixa-walks-their-talk) that Slixa has made to the adult private entertainment community during their first year.

Citing an active presence in the escort and adult entertainment community by sponsoring relevant events and lending support to advocacy organizations, Xbiz also reports that Slixa has, “sponsored the Woodhull Sexual freedom Summit and Catalyst Con, Desiree Alliance Conference and the HIPS 20th Anniversary event”, in addition to “using its blogs as a plugging platform” for industry issues.

Slixa’s Director of Marketing and Business Relations Development, Kathryn Harris reports, “Entertainers face a host of problems, from social stigma to criminalization (and everything in between). The overall view of private adult entertainment is that it isn’t real work. The adult industry is seen as inherently seedy, dark, and bad, which means that folks in the industry are not given equal opportunity to thrive in safe, fair situations that protect their interests. We’ve tried to address these issues and take an active role in changing the perceptions of this industry. We want to be thought leaders striving towards a more normalizing and positive mind set of this industry as a whole. Big ambitions, yes, but we believe it’s a goal worth working towards.”
