With 17 successful episodes under their belt, the controversial break-out web series, Midwest Teen Sex Show (MTSS), has landed its first major sponsor with KoldCast TV. The series, which has been airing on-demand on several video web sites and on KoldCast TV since its Beta launch in March, will now air exclusively on the KoldCast TV Network beginning today through December. Beyond KoldCast, only the MTSS web site will distribute these five KoldCast TV-sponsored episodes.
Since the launch of Midwest Teen Sex Show, the Show and its three producers, Nikol Hasler, Britney Barber and Guy Clark, have been consistently featured on Network broadcasts such as CNN, ABC's Nightline, CBS's The Early Show, the CBS Evening New with Katie Couric and Fox's The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet. The Wall Street Journal, the AP and many other media outlets, including many popular online Blogs, such as NewTeeVee, have also weighed-in on the Show.
Despite the Show's title and logline, "A video show about teen sexuality," the Show does not offer any nudity or sex of any kind. In fact, the Show, which is frequently characterized as funny and entertaining, is largely informational in nature, and is now viewed by an average of 300,000 viewers per episode. "Of these viewers, nearly 60% aren't teens at all; says producer Hasler, many, in fact, are eager parents who point their teen children to the Show to learn the realities of sex in today's world – it's simply not that easy for many parents to talk with their kids about hard hitting topics like oral sex and body parts. And with porn so easily discoverable on the internet, our goal is to educate while teaching safe sex in a fun and highly-entertaining way. We come right at you with the reality of it all."
Given the topics discussed on Midwest Teen Sex Show, paid advertising sponsorships can be a real challenge. "It takes a forward thinking company to recognize that shows like MTSS bring legions of loyal viewers back for every episode. MTSS's loyal fans not only watch every episode in its entirety, they tell all their friends to watch as well. It doesn't get more viral than this; said David S. Samuels, CEO of KoldCast TV, we're thrilled to be partnering with Nikol, Britney and Guy on these episodes."
