Playboy Home Video Sponsors Erotica LA 2005 Convention

9th Annual Convention Takes Place June 10-12 2005 at the Los Angeles Convention Center

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 2, 2005 -- Each year, more and more companies get involved with Erotica Los Angeles (ELA) and this year is no exception. ELA Vice President, Chad Beecher, announced today a sponsorship agreement with Playboy Home Video. This is the first year that Playboy Home Video has signed on to participate in the convention -- and another testament that ELA is gaining more momentum in the mainstream arena.

As a primary sponsor, Playboy Home Video will be launching their newest releases in the "Sexiest Amateur Home Videos" series and will be holding giveaways throughout the convention. Playboy Home Video focuses on sexy, romantic and beautiful imagery, celebrating the female form. Other upcoming home entertainment releases include "Women of McDonalds," "Totally Busted 2" (from the Playboy TV series) and "Secrets of EuroMassage/Ultimate Sensual Massage." Other notable Playboy Home Video DVD releases will also be featured including other titles from the popular "Women of" series including "Women of Fear Factor," and "Women of Starbucks," as well as "America's Sexiest Bartenders" and the latest from the popular "Playmate of the Year" series.

In addition, Playboy Radio's "Night Calls" will be broadcasting live on XM Satellite radio from the show floor. The hosts will take listeners with them as they tour the show floor. The station will also be giving away free tickets to attend the ELA show on air.

"We are very honored to have Playboy Home Video so closely involved in ELA," said Chad Beecher. "By capitalizing on the resources and the name recognition of Playboy Home Video, we are confident that this partnership will offer more for our attendees."

"This is a great opportunity for Playboy Home Video," stated Michael Sprouse, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Playboy Entertainment Group. "Playboy Home Video DVDs are particularly desirable for women and couples, as our content is unique, sexy and creative. We have also expanded our 'reality' line of DVD products, which are sure to be a hit at the convention. Expect some great surprises this year."
