PayPal and Sex

November 24, 2008

Some of you may have noticed with have moved from selling our calendar through PayPal to Audacia Ray’s store on her site Waking Vixen. This change was made last Monday after our account had been put on review for the second time by PayPal.

Last Sunday we received an email from PayPal stating that our account was under review and they were requiring additional information for four transactions that occurred on October 1st, 2nd and 3rd. We were able to provide the additional information they requested and our account was fully reinstated within the hour. This however was the second review we had received since opening the account. When we first opened this PayPal account we received a phone call from them questioning what exactly we would be selling.

We believe what has caused PayPal to twice now review our account is the word “sex” in both our email address and the actual calendar title. Because of this we made the decision last Monday to move the purchase transactions over to Dacia’s store. We were lucky that someone involved with this calendar already had a merchant account that made this possible.

It is obvious to us and many others in this community that PayPal is not good to use for anyone in the adult industry. We were aware of others who had had their accounts frozen and their funds taken by PayPal for what PayPal felt was a violation for their TOS. We did not think when we set up our Paypal account we would have this problem because there is no nudity in our calendar. As a matter of fact our calendar shows less skin than the Sport Illustrated calendar does but we do not want to take the risk of having the funds in our account seized.

Calendar Release Party Tomorrow!

November 13, 2008

Tess by Stacie Joy

Thanks to the miracle work of the pervy angels over at Njoy, the calendars have made their way over land and through the sky and probably over the sea to the Njoy-plex. They will be personally delivered to us tomorrow at our secret headquarters. All but for a box of 50 that showed up on my doorstep last night.

And let me tell you, all the time and effort, stress and insanity of working on such a tight time schedule was worth it. The calendars are beautiful and I am so proud to be the producer of this project and to have had the ability to work with all the smart and sexy pin ups and our fabulous sponsors.

So come party with us and share in the fun, use some of your hard earned bucks for a good, sex-positive cause, Sex Work Awareness, enjoy some sultry, sexy burlesque performances by The Luvely Rae, Weirdee Girl, Jezebel Express and Darlinda Just Darlinda and maybe win a fabulous prize or two. It’s all happening at White Rabbit, tomorrow between 6:30 and 9:30. Remember that the first 100 people get Babeland gift bags crammed with goodies from many of our sponsors and the first 100 people to buy calendars get a FREE bottle of Sliquid Silk, a $14.95 value, making your calendar purchase practically free. We even have other goodies to pass out among the best (or naughtiest) behaved among you.

Take a look at all the press we’ve been getting and think about arriving early because we don’t want you to miss out on any of the merriment and mayhem.

Please bring cash to purchase your calendars and raffle tickets. You know you can’t resist the charms of scantily clad ladies. Don’t forget you get to touch Tess’s bountiful boobs or spank/be spanked by Rachel when you purchase a calendar. We are such a giving group of women. All for the cause, people, all for the cause.

Calendar Party Countdown

November 2, 2008

Our party is less than two weeks away and we hope to see many of you there. Get there early, we expect a crowd and only have 100 gift bags and we know you are going to want yours.

Due to popular demand, with your calendar purchase you can choose between tickets to Spank (or be spanked by) Rachel or to Touch Tess’ Tits. We’re givers.

The raffle prizes keep growing thanks to so many wonderful supporters who believe in this project and believe that being sex-positive extends beyond the walls of their own bedrooms. So check out the list on the About The Raffle page and see what you might win. Raffle tickets are $2 for 1, $5 for 3 and $10 for 10. Cash only. Bring the green!

And since our calendar was shot at the fabulous NYC burlesque venue, The Slipper Room, what could be better than to bring a bit of va-va-va-voom directly to you. Performing at the party are Jezebel Express, Weirdee Girl, The Luvley Rae and Darlinda Just Darlinda. We’re hoping to lure one of our own pin ups into performing the burlesque act she’s been working on. Have any ideas who that would be? You’ll just have to wait and see! And it will be so worth it.

And since so many of you are giving in so many ways, we’d like to ask for some volunteers to hand out gift bags, sell raffle tickets (scantily clad only need apply), refill our drinks (oops, how’d that get in there?) and generally make sure that chaos is somewhat contained. If you’d like to help out, email me (urbangypsyt@gmail.com) or my able bodied assistant with the growing boobs, I mean, seriously, have you seen Diva’s recent HNT’s, (debaucheddomesticdiva@gmail.com). If anyone wants to try their hand at DJ’ing and has an iPod full of super sexy music, bring it on. Again, just email either of us.

We really want all of you out there to be at the party, but if you happen to be out of town, across the country, across the ocean or otherwise unable to attend, you can go to the Purchase A Calendar page and order yours now. They will ship out after the party!

See you all soon…
