NEW YORK — Women of Sex Tech today announced the addition of Lauren MacEwen, CEO of, to its list of “Female Founders.”

Women of Sex Tech is an inclusive community of “sex-positive women changing the sex tech industry.” The group represents artists, creators, entrepreneurs, journalists, educators, innovators and engineers and was founded by Unbound CEO and co-founder Polly Rodriguez and House of Plume’s Lidia Bonilla.

“I’m honored to be involved with Women of Sex Tech because I think the work we are doing is important, and if you look at the list of founders you will see that they take their vetting process quite seriously,” said MacEwen, whose 7Veils offers social media management and consulting.

“It has suddenly become somewhat trendy to take a female-forward approach to tech, but when you get beyond the flight of fancy some media outlets are engaged in, it’s really important to focus in on the organizations that have a long-term approach and a much more inclusive world view.”

In addition to operating 7Veils, MacEwen is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and mentee.

Xbiz awards, no props to tweets

During Wednesday night’s Xbiz Award show, Twitter was flooded with pics and commentary from the red carpet.  Stars posted tweets ranging from getting ready for the event to comments on the happenings.  The next day’s tweets were even more overwhelming.  All the photos that were taken started flooding the twitterverse.  More comments and talk about the previous night’s activities were the trending topic for adult tweets. Though Twitter gave a nod to Xbiz, Xbiz did not give a nod to Twitter.

First thing Thursday morning the list of winners was posted. Those of us who were not yet in the know ran to the site to see who won awards.  Consummate tech geek that I am, I checked the tech section first.  I am curious to see who won best website and best web services, but I am more interested in the topics.  As the internet plays a deeper and more integral role in porn (reaffirmed by Pink Visual launching their cloud site), the categories for Web/Tech are becoming more significant.

Sadly, there was no category for social media. No category for Twitter. No category for innovative social media networks. Nada.  I am sure organizations like Adult Talent Registry would like a chance for recognition. What about twitter campaigns that companies like Adult Trading Card Company have launched? It is unusual to be on social media and not have heard their names.  Then you have the tweet aggregating powerhouse, Pornstar Tweets. And who is kidding who here, the porn stars would love a chance to get some recognition for their tweeting prowess!

So although the Xbiz awards did not recognize the social media muscle that the adult industry is flexing, efforts are not going unnoticed.

Congratulations to all the winners of real categories from Xbiz. Maybe I should create my own social media porn award. What do you think?

Feature Photo Friday: I met Wendy Rider, aka. Muscle Barbie, on Twitter.  I saw one of the pictures she posted and was blown away. Not only is she beautiful, but she is fabulously fit!   She is a WBFF Pro Figure competitor, Playboy model, International Fitness Model, and personal trainer. Yup, she is the whole package.  Her site is not only pictures and cam, you can get live fitness training from Ms. Muscle Barbie herself!
