(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Digital Playground is prominently featured in CNBC's documentary ''Porn: Business of Pleasure'', premiering July 15 at 9pm EST. The one hour show takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the $13 billion dollar adult entertainment industry and highlights Digital Playground superstar Jesse Jane® and Digital Playground's CEO Samantha Lewis.
''I hope that CNBC was able to achieve the objective view they set out to create regarding the future of the adult business,'' says Paul Fishbein, President of AVN Media Network. ''It is truly interesting to explore the juxtaposition between different adult companies. Digital Playground is a female run company, which features a star as sexually empowered as Jesse Jane. However, there are still those who operate in a manner perpetuating the negative opinions so many hold of the industry. The current economic times should have a Darwin affect and allow consumers to decide which business model will be the future of porn.''

Samantha Lewis, Digital Playground's CEO, is known throughout the adult industry as a pioneer towards the empowerment of women and equalization of gender roles in pornography. In the documentary, Lewis discusses how the industry continues to evolve and break barriers. She says, ''It was important to me to appear on camera and reveal a side of the industry that the general public may not be aware of. Digital Playground is a female owned and operated company producing a product which helps adults embrace their sexuality.''
''This documentary is the first time where I've really allowed my professional life to mix with my personal life,'' explains international celebrity and Digital Playground contract girl Jesse Jane. ''I'm more than just a porn star. I'm a wife, mother, daughter, and friend. I hope that people watch the show and their eyes are opened to the good behind an industry that has treated me extremely well.''
