(California) February 14, 2005 – After a long and sometimes difficult introduction to the online medium, unique live video chat and babes site, OhLaLaVilla.com
, has arrived.
Originally slated to be launched under another name early in 2004, the site was delayed, as webmaster David Snyder explains, by "incompetence and dishonesty we have met along the way."
When OhLaLaVilla owner Smilax, LLC found the live video chat solution created by 2much.net
, LiveCamNetwork 1.9, it seemed all was fine, with a new name and launch date set for December 1st last year.
"Then we got hit by the logic bombs and nobody could do business," said 2much.net Media and Communications manager Greg Jones. "I felt bad, after all they went through before us."
The problems were soon fixed, however, and the Smilax team forged ahead with their ambitious project, headed by a reknowned photographer who prefers to remain nameless to allow the online project to make it on its own merits.
Snyder is confident OhLaLaVilla has the makings of a big hit. "This is elite-tier content produced with the highest quality available," he said.
Smilax, LLC's famous artist has worked for and with many of the industry's most recognized adult companies, such as Penthouse and Playboy, and boasts a portfolio that's graced most major magazines, the publication of best selling photo books, directing soft-core video and film productions, as well as creating calendars, posters and more. The Internet is the next logical step for an artist who has covered every pre-web medium available.
Rather than gamble on another big launch, OhLaLaVilla simply went online and presented the website to webmaster and surfing publics with little fanfare, confident in the fact that it's more than your average live video chat site.
OhLaLaVilla.com is a membership site offering over 11,000 young and mature picture sets and videos from the photographer’s extensive collection. While some of this material is familiar due to the fame and classic status of both art and artist, the live video chat hostesses on the site will also be featured in pictorials, offering original content not seen anywhere else online or offline.
While the video chat features free upsell rooms, members will have access to special webcasts. "We'll feature top models in photo-shoots live online," said Snyder. "It's not every day we can see world-class photographers and models in live video coverage showing them at work."
Naturally, once the bikinis and bathrobes drop, viewers will have to go to Group chat mode to see the end of the shoot. "It's only natural," said Snyder.
That the site's construct is different from basic cooker-cutter video chat plug-ins is obvious when you join as a member and find the "villa" map, where links allow you to view various live cams found in the studio, Jacuzzi, gym or bedrooms.
But Ohlalavilla’s also proud of the exclusive agreement signed with Abyss Creations to present the Real Doll
, which will be featured in regular chat rooms as well as special appearances in the other chat locations in the “villa”.
"We'll have several 'guest' models every week, who will come for the day, most of them from Los Angeles, to play with the other models already on location”
All in all, the site seems to effectively embody the photographer's philosophy in digital form: "Through photographs, we can contain these women, tame them and keep them forever in images that give men the world's greatest pleasure - sexual fantasy."
