TheAdultSpot.com Launches Its 3D Virtual Social Network

Web Portal Now Available to Over 5 Million Members

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Zealous Interactive, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Zealous, Inc. (OTCBB: ZLUS), announced today that its premiere portal, TheAdultSpot.com, has launched its 3D virtual social network providing users with a unique interactive and shopping experience. Members of TheAdultSpot.com can socialize with others as avatars in a 3D virtual reality space, known as MMOR (massively multi-user online reality) and not be limited to only a flat screen, text environment that may be boring and restrictive. Membership is free. However, there are special features in the 3D world reserved for VIP paid membership. Users can interact with old friends or meet new people and participate in various activities including dancing, karaoke, watching a movie, shopping, or dining with someone special at a favorite restaurant. There are no boundaries in this virtual world platform provided by the partnership of TheAdultSpot.com and Utherverse Digital, Inc.

"TheAdultSpot.com users are in for a shock," said Brian Shuster, CEO of Utherverse Digital, Inc. "The synergy of our 3D technology with the leading adult social network is going to give users the kind of experience that they will be telling their friends about for years to come."

"This is an important day for Zealous Interactive, Inc. as the company turns its focus from a developmental-stage, pre-revenue website to a revenue-generating enterprise in the fast growing and ever changing social networking business with access to over 5 million subscribers. Our ad based and direct response model should provide shareholders of Zealous, Inc. with a unique opportunity for growth," said Milton C. Ault, III, Chairman of Zealous, Inc., the parent company of Zealous Interactive, Inc.

"Utherverse Digital, Inc. will equally share membership revenue with TheAdultSpot.com, and all advertising and affiliate marketing revenue will be kept one hundred percent by Zealous Interactive, Inc.," said Gary Gottlieb, CFO of Zealous, Inc. "Advertising will be placed in the virtual world in the form of billboards, posters, and sponsorship of venues similar to what one would find in the real world as opposed to banner ads traditionally found on other websites." Mr. Gottlieb went on to say, "Our social networking and combined portal make us one of the most unique websites targeted specifically for adults." Zealous, Inc. previously reported that it was in talks to sell Zealous Interactive. However, given this new partnership, the company no longer considers the assets for sale.
