(CEDAR GROVE, NJ) -- Adult Industry Icon Heidi Joy Pike Joins New Machine. The noted legendary adult industry editor is now exclusive to production powerhouse New Machine Publishing. Pike will be head of production and marketing for New Machine's new all-original gonzo imprint, Corrupted Pictures.
"New Machine has shown a lot of faith and trust in me in taking me on in this position and I plan to do everything in my power to make sure that they have product that will shine in the marketplace," Pike said.
Pike very recently parted ways with top industry trade publication Adult Video News where she was a Senior Associate Editor and one of the most influential and respected people on the magazine's editorial staff.
Prior to that, Pike helmed gonzo icon John "Buttman" Stagliano's self-titled magazine, Buttman Magazine which is currently the top-selling hardcore magazine in stores everywhere. During her time at Evil Angel, Pike also worked closely with pro-am legend Randy West on creating boxcovers for his product.
Pike started off in the adult business as a peep show girl in Seattle who then worked in an adult retail store, educating herself on porn and the retail end of it there.
New Machine company president Mark Brown said of Pike, "We are excited and feel Heidi is coming on board at the perfect time as we are redirecting our efforts into top directors working exclusively for New Machine. Heidi adds tremendous enthusiasm, experience and talent to our organization. Her vast knowledge and background will present a unique high quality perspective on our new releases." Pike will also be directing for Corrupted Pictures, starting off with her signature all-girl series, Corrupted.
"I have spent a lot of time watching porn over the years and I know what quality stuff looks like. I can't wait to make New Machine proud of me," Pike said of her upcoming directorial debut. The first volume of Corrupted will be in stores by year's end.
