Throwback Thursday: Sophia Lynn

Sophia Lynn burst onto the adult scene in 2006, shooting with the likes of Digital Playground and Pure Play Media before getting her real big break with Adam & Eve, where she became a contract performer. After just a few years, Sophia backed out of the industry, even appearing on ABC Primetime to discuss her struggles in the industry. This caught the attention of Celebrates Community Church, who reached out to the star to offer her a job and home with the South Dakota ministry. Sophia jumped at the opportunity but returned to the adult industry soon after in 2010, saying her time away from the industry helped her ”find myself and develop into a woman. I still love the church and will never regret anything I have done. Everything has helped me grow to be the woman I am today.” Though we’re not even really sure where that woman is today since her Twitter‘s been dead since 2011, we can reminisce about her soft blonde features and delicate curves in this exclusive 2006 photo shoot!

News of Pipedream’s Ryan’s Secrets Hits, Production Sky Rockets!

Pipedream has most recently introduced Ryan’s Secrets to its controversial Super Star Series of celebrity-inspired blowup dolls. Now that the story has hit the press, the manufacturer is in high production and urges customers to snatch up the doll while supplies last.

Radar Online broke the news first this morning, while dozens of gossip rags have quickly followed suit to report that “the most powerful perv in television has a dirty little secret,” as suggested on the doll’s packaging.

Just a year after the media craze over the Just-In Beaver love doll, Pipedream catapults itself back into mainstream culture by poking fun at the world’s celebrity obsession with outrageously hilarious copy and photos that bear a striking resemblance to the stars. Within two days of releasing Just-In Beaver, pipedreamproducts.com experienced over two million hits, and the manufacturer looks forward to similar exposure.

“Nobody creates products with mainstream crossover appeal like Pipedream,” said Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino. “The publicity we receive when one of these celebrity dolls hits the market is priceless. Our customers will definitely experience rising sales as Ryan’s Secrets blows up – literally!”

For customers who haven’t already received them, all Pipedream catalogs are available by request from your distributor. Online catalogs are available in multiple formats, as well as downloadable product videos for in-store and online use from PDTV.
