"Wicked Pictures as a company always strives to bring quality adult entertainment to couples. Now, we're taking it one step further and focusing on the female porn lover - a consumer demographic that is often overlooked," he observes. "I really think women and couples alike are going to love this movie. Our parody is spot on, the characters, costumes, locations, and dance sequences are all perfect. The guys all did such a great job and really got into their characters, and it shows on screen." For her part, jessica drake happily concurs with the filmmaker's assessments. "This is a movie for the ladies as well as the men, and I'm so glad to have been a part of it! With each parody Brad Armstrong directs, I'm even more impressed with the casting, acting, characters, and sex! Derrick Pierce as Mike and Ryan McLane as Dallas are the highlights, everything else is icing on the beefcake!" Asa Akira echoes jessica’s sentiments, adding that "even the dialogue days on this movie were the most fun I've ever had on set. The guys did such a good job! I got to sit in on a couple of the rehearsals, so to see that process was pretty neat. Ryan McLane is dead on as Dallas!” Ryan McLane is quick to join the ladies in praising the director's penchant for detail and pursuit of excellence, revealing, "During pre-production, we met once a week for about two months at Brad Armstrong's home to work on choreography for free, which tells you all you need to know about how much we wanted to make it perfect! Anyone could have done a Magic Mike porn parody, but I firmly believe that Brad Armstrong is the only person in our business who was capable of turning it into an all-time porn classic." In playing the titular character, Derrick Pierce was happy to assist Armstrong in his quest to attract female viewers. "In our movie, the action doesn't stop on the stripper stage. The ladies get more than just a little lap dance. My job was to take the guess work out of 'I wonder what it would be like to make love to that stripper.' and make the fantasy a reality." Wicked’s two-disc DVD delivers maximum value for the entertainment dollar. In addition to the 201 minute movie, the release includes no less than three bonus sex scenes, behind the scenes footage, dance rehearsals, sensual photo galleries, trailers, extended dance sequences, bonus dance footage, exclusive interviews and much more. The sum total is a package Armstrong proudly calls "Fun and sexy and entertaining. And gauging by the amount of mainstream press we've been getting on it, I'm guessing it's gonna be a huge success."

Wicked continues to diversify its commitment to couples’ intimacy through such initiatives as the romance-driven Wicked Passions label, niche imprints like Wicked Comix and Wicked Fairy Tales, the AVN / XBIZ award-winning educational series “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex” and the Wicked Sensual Care Collection of luxurious lubricants and enhancers. These forward-thinking ventures allow Wicked to explore new ground while staying true to its vision of producing quality adult entertainment and strengthening its appeal to women and couples.
