Zivity – A Social Network Promoting Beauty 2.0!

Zivity Logo.jpgZivity is a new social network startup hosting user generated adult content. In their terms, “Promoting Beauty 2.0".

Zivity offers a social networking platform focused on “sexy models and beautiful photography.” Do not confuse it with adult dating site to hook-up. May be it is a reason, it became first adult content site to get venture capital funding in silicon valley and that’s too $8,000,000.

Zivity has a unique business model that pays models and photographers directly based on the number of user-votes they receive. With a minimum $5 subscription, members receive 5 votes that they can cast for models and photography they find appealing, with $0.80 out of every $1 vote being distributed to the model and photographer. Out of $0.60 goes to the model and $0.20 goes to the photographer. There is no limit on the amount of money that a photographer or model can make; as long as a photo remains popular, models and photographers will share in ongoing royalties whilst retaining full ownership of the pictures.

Cyan Banister“I started Zivity because I believe in empowerment business models that enable people to be entrepreneurial,” says Cyan Banister, founder of Zivity. She is also modeling on Zivity and in her words, “I don’t take my clothes off just to promote Zivity. I also do it for the model community and for myself. I want to change how people view nudity and beauty… I really enjoy being on Zivity and being nude and sexy in photographs is enjoyable!” Notably, Cyan won the “Sexiest Geek Alive” award, in 2000, when she was just 22.

Currently in beta, Zivity is open to top models, photographers and a group of beta testers. If you are interested, you can apply for beta testing here.

Waiting for an invitation from u nilesh……

Rahul Bansal May 19, 2008

@Tejas & Pranav & ALL
Some bad news… πŸ™
I just contacted Nilesh and it turn out to be that only beta testers who signed up using application form can invite 1 friend.
And as I invited Nilesh, he has no “invitation menu” at Zivity.

I myself was not invited by anyone and I used beta-tester sign-up form. They gave me account in just 2 days.
The beta-tester form is simple and small, so please try it…

Rahul Bansal June 8, 2008

Sent one to Tejas and one is left…

Please let me know who wants it as some of you may got invite from elsewhere in meantime… πŸ™‚
