LAS VEGAS — The company that owns the popular gay-themed pornhub Vivid, the world’s largest, is taking steps to help LGBT people and their families access its sites, including the introduction of a gay massage app.
The company says it’s working with a team of developers to create a new service that will allow LGBT people to choose from multiple massage options, as well as the option of having a personal massage at home.
“We’re not going to force you to have a massage,” said Jason Hesse, chief marketing officer at Vivid.
“It’s not like a massage in a hotel, but it’s not a hotel either.
It’s a private space.”
Vivid is one of the biggest sites for gay men in the United States, with a total of more than 30 million members.
The gay-oriented site also offers the ability to rent out rooms to guests who are also gay.
The app will allow customers to use their smartphones to browse through various options of massages available.
The new service will launch at select locations in California, according to the company.
It will be available at all Vivid locations in the next three to six months, said John Haus, general manager of Vivid California.
The Vivid app allows users to select from three different massage options: body-massage, face-massages and facial-massaging.
Body-massagers include a wide range of techniques, including face-to-face, body-to and head-to massages.
A facial-to massage is similar to the face-numbing massage offered at some gay bars, but is a more intimate experience that involves massaging a person’s face.
The apps allow users to choose between two different types of massaging: “Face to face” or “body to body.”
The apps also allow customers the option to send photos of themselves.
“Face-to face” massages are typically done by a person who is alone and does not have a partner, according a Vivid spokeswoman.
“Body-to body” massagers are usually done by an adult who is on top of a person and has a partner.
Vivid’s new service is a partnership with a number of local gay massage studios, including Bodywork, Massage City, and Bistro Magic.
The “Body to Body” massage, which is offered in a variety of locations, includes massages on the back, backside, chest and abdomen.
Vigid says it is also working with local massage studios to bring the new service to more locations, but has yet to finalize the final locations.
Vibrators are currently not allowed on Vivid sites, according the company’s FAQ page on its website.
In an email to The Associated Press, Vivid said it was aware of the issue and has implemented additional safeguards to make sure it’s safe to use its sites.
“Our team of professionals and partners are working closely with the Vivid team to ensure that Vivid members have access to the new massage apps,” the email said.
Visconti, who said he has been using Vivid for 20 years, said the company is not trying to “make gay people suffer,” but to help those who have been affected by the recent waves of violence and discrimination.
“I think the more people are empowered, the better,” he said.
“They should be able to be able not to have to hide their sexuality, or have to be ashamed of who they are.”
Viscoti said he plans to continue using VIV on his website.
