CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Adult film director Ray Dark and producer/creator Thomas, the team behind the critically-acclaimed Amateur Allure subscription website, have officially launched their new site Swallow Salon.
Ray was nominated for Best Web Director at the AVN Awards for 2014, 2015, and 2016, and the Swallow Salon site has already been recognized with a 2016 AVN Award nomination for Best Oral Sex Scene for a scene featuring new performer Marley Brinx. Amateur Allure received five nominations at the 2015 AVN Awards, with “Amateur POV Auditions 6” winning Best Pro-Am Release.
The distinctive look of scenes in the Swallow Salon site has roots in mainstream.
“I love sci-fi and Japanese porn — and Thomas and I are huge Stanley Kubrick fans,” Ray said. “When we were originally kicking around ideas, the LA County Art Museum was running this awesome Kubrick exhibit. Later that summer, we produced a mainstream sci-fi pilot called ‘Cowboys and Engines’ and we got to work with the great Malcolm McDowell. Those experiences got us thinking: If Kubrick were to direct a porn site, what might it look like?
“We decided to take Swallow Salon in a more artistic direction. We wanted to create something that looked and felt unique,” Ray explained. “The image is very magical and dreamlike. It’s what gives Swallow Salon its signature look.”
“With Amateur Allure, we have always had our imitators,” Thomas said. “I like to stay ahead of the curve. I think we have managed to achieve that with Swallow Salon.”
The SwallowSalon.com site already offers more than 40 original scenes, with new updates added every week. Besides Marley Brinx, the Swallow Salon has been visited by performers including Aidra Fox, Riley Reid, Remy LaCroix, Yhivi, Whitney Westgate, Penny Pax, Lyla Dean, Nina North and Bailey Bae. The site provides the viewer with an immersive, sensual POV experience, with blowjob and sex scenes featuring beautiful girls in tight, skimpy salon uniforms under the swirling glow of colorful, futuristic lights.
Feedback from fans of the Swallow Salon site say it has a completely original vibe.
“People are digging it,” said Ray. “We’re already getting strange requests from our members. Girls have been hitting me up, saying they’ve been seeing all this beautiful new content coming from us and they want to be a part of it. I think the models that I’ve shot really enjoy being a part of something this unique and cool. It’s really exciting.”
A 30-day subscription to SwallowSalon.com costs $24.95. Members of the Amateur Allure website can join for $16. New full-price subscribers to Swallow Salon can also join Amateur Allure for $26.
