New Canadian Adult Channel Promises to be “Soft and Tasteful”

from – The woman behind Canada’s first homegrown pay TV adult entertainment channel insists its programming will be soft and tasteful.

Quebec TV personality and producer Anne-Marie Losique [pictured], a household name in her home province for her daring style and X-rated series, promises content on Vanessa — that’s the channel’s name — will be much more than just porn movies.

The French-language adult subscription channel is launching in Quebec for $14.95 a month in October, with an English-language counterpart promised for the rest of Canada in late 2011.

“There’s nothing shameful about Vanessa,” Losique said in an interview. “It’s going to be a general-interest TV with a sexy twist.”

She noted the channel will offer some hard-core material, but stressed that overall, it is going to be soft — a Canadian answer to Playboy Channel.

Recently, Christians expressed outrage that the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission gave the green light to a national pay TV sex channel that will encourage and sustain a homegrown adult entertainment industry.

Don Hutchinson, director of law and public policy for the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, told Canwest News Service he’s worried a channel like Vanessa will support a pornography industry that will lure young Canadians.

Losique said she understands religious groups’ concerns, but said Vanessa is not a porn channel.

“There are enough of those already. That’s not what we’re interested in,” said Losique, whose Montreal-based production company will produce most of the content.

She said X-rated movies will represent less than 10 per cent of the programming aimed mostly at couples.

The channel will offer a range of erotic-themed dramas, reality shows, documentaries and variety and magazine shows.
