(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Stoya(TM), one of Digital Playground's premiere contract stars, is the focus of a new online competition by XCritic.com. The entry form can be completed on XCritic.com's website.
The grand prize winner receives autographed copies of every film that Stoya has appeared in for Digital Playground: ''Cheerleaders'', ''Stoya: Video Nasty'', ''Jack's POV 9'', ''Stoya: Sexual Freak'', and ''Jesse Jane: Lust''. Four runner-ups receive an autographed copy of ''Stoya: Video Nasty''.
Stoya is one of the hardest working, fresh talents in the industry. In addition to the quality movies she films for Digital Playground, she maintains an entertaining and personal blog for XCritic.com. Geoffrey Kleinman, XCritic.com CEO, realized Stoya's potential right away: ''People in the industry throw around the term 'girl next door' so much, but in the case of Stoya, it's absolutely true. I knew she was destined to become a huge star the moment I saw her, but it wasn't until we spoke that I realized the real extent of her talent.
Stoya is a smart girl and somehow manages to combine a sweet innocence with a major sex drive. It was only natural for us to showcase her talents on XCritic.com, so our readers can also experience the world of Stoya.'' the contest is XCritic.com's way of paying homage to one of the industry's biggest stars and the company she heralds from.
Signed to an exclusive contract with Digital Playground in 2007, Stoya became a quick favorite among critics and fans alike. Her carefree personality translates well in her on-camera sex scenes. Digital Playground is a throw-back to the old Hollywood studio system, where contract stars are able to develop relationships with Digital Playground's award winning producers, directors, and other talent. Samantha Lewis, Digital Playground CEO, describes the studio as, ''A family. When you work so closely with the same people, you begin to understand their strengths and talents. We develop strong bonds with our actors that make for better films.'' for Digital Playground, the goal is always to provide better quality films for their audience.
XCritic.com has enthusiastically reviewed all of the Digital Playground films which feature Stoya. Don Houston, a reviewer for XCritic.com wrote this about Stoya's performance with Brianna Love and Manual Ferrara in ''Cheerleaders'': ''the look on their faces (especially Stoya) and the enthusiasm shown throughout the scene increased the energy and passion to such a level that it was my favorite of the movie in many ways.''
XCritic.com's love affair with Stoya, made it only natural for her to become the first porn star to begin a blog on their site. Stoya writes in a relaxed and inviting voice about her daily life, from testing new sex toys to going to the zoo. Her blog helps to break down some of the stereo types associated with performers in the adult industry and reveals her in a new light to her fans.
Digital Playground's commitment to the highest quality is why their movies are so favorably reviewed by top sites like XCritic.com. XCritic.com is dedicated to providing honest reviews to fans of adult entertainment. Their inclusion of Stoya's films, produced by Digital Playground is a positive reflection of both the star and the company.
Look for more from Stoya in Digital Playground's soon-to-be-released 2008 blockbuster movie, ''Pirates 2: Stagnetti's Revenge''.
XCritic.com exists for one simple reason. The number of poor quality adult films in the market out numbers the good. It is also an industry where you absolutely can not ''judge a book by its cover'' so the reviewers at XCritic watch the bad porn so fans won't have to. They sift through the choices out there and help fans find the ones worth their time and money. To that end XCritic.com plans on bringing fans reviews, news, interviews, blogs, columns, podcasts and a forum. They do this to help fans find the best of what they are looking for.
