We’ve Been Scoring Some Major Press Lately!

We’ve attained some excellent mainstream attention for the companies we work with. And when we score victories for our clients, it makes us feel as good as the Los Angeles Kings felt when they won the Stanley Cup again this year. Yes, we’re big hockey fans.

We got HiPleasures placement in Vice Magazine, Jezebel, Cosmo UK, Gizmodo UK and Jacket, in addition to a soon-to-be-announced huge distro deal and tons of sales on their site. We’re sure the headline-grabbing coverage we got on AVN and XBIZ newsites and printed editions also helped.

We recently wrote a press release for Teddy Love about their Indiegogo campaign. Their campaign has already started with a bang. Their YouTube page has been viewed over 70,000 and it’s only been up for three days–it must be because of the coverage on Huff Post UK, Jezebel, GTN News Atlanta, Times Live in Johannesburg and (just to name a few), in addition to front-page, adult coverage on AVN, XBIZ and Fleshbot.

And as a side note, our owner, Erika Icon was profiled in XBIZ recently. The news story was entitled “How PR Pros Adapt to Adult’s Evolving Landscape”, and she was one of the veterans interviewed and got some good real estate in the article. It can be seen on their site and will be in a printed edition in the next month or so. Read it here:

2014 has been an amazing year, and we know more greatness is on the way. We will have some new client announcements and major announcements about our current clients in the next few weeks or so. PR is crucial to be successful in adult and beyond, and all of our clients are seeing the benefits. When you hire seasoned professionals that work hard, have stellar connections and won’t take no for an answer, you get results like this. That’s why when people are serious about their careers or their companies being successful, they hire us.

How We’re Different

I’ve been having quite a few meetings with potential new clients (companies and performers) and I am repeatedly asked how we are different.

The Rub PR is NOT like any other adult PR company out there, so if you’re thinking about hiring us this why you should:

  • We offer extremely good pricing on our services and have way more services than the other firms–so you get more bang for  your buck.
  • We’ve gotten over half a dozen clients cast in mainstream productions (including reality TV and Indie movies) over the last year. We’ll making more announcements about clients in new projects over the next few weeks and months.
  • In the last 6 months, we’ve attained radio shows for 5 clients.
  • We found everyone of our clients had a place to sign during AEE, and many of them were paid for their time. This goes for all the major trade shows.
  • Our client, Kayla-Jane Danger, worked the red carpet interview people at the AVN Awards and The Sex Awards. And yes, we got her those gigs.
  • We help our clients get feature dancing gigs through bookers, talent agencies and sometimes even the clubs.
  • We are extremely personable and check in with our clients multiple times a week and we’re extremely accessible most of the time (even on weekends and nights). We’re here for our clients.
  • We never over promise. Never! We will never tell you we can do something we can’t for you before you hire us or while you’re on our roster. If you want something, we will do our best to attain it for you.
  • We truly care about our clients and their well-being than taking their money. Also, we will never take on a client that we don’t believe in or we can’t help–we’re not here just to take people’s money and not produce results.

There is no other adult PR firm that does these things and this is just the tip of the iceberg. If you are interested in our services, contact us at
