By August 2010 Babestation was in the early stages of a new modus operandi. The first phase of intensive ‘power presenting’ had been gathering pace since spring, and the biggest shows were moving towards a more driven regime in which it would become obvious that the channels were no longer screening shows - they were screening adverts.
But there was a risk, because for many fans, the rising tide of power-selling, intrusive graphics and noise - the ‘televisual migraine’, if you like - was not what Babestation was about. There had to be something of substance to keep fans watching, and it needed to be good! In fact, what the channel needed, was a good four or five ingredients to really keep things on track… More novelty, more classic glamour models, more chance for callers to get through and talk to those classic glamour models, more scope to develop the new(ish) encrypted channel which featured heavily in the overall gameplan, and something long overdue – more non-white models.
Fortunately, Babestation managed to provide all of those ingredients in a single move: the hiring of ‘Tantric Twins’ Preeti and Priya Young. New faces on the babe channels, the twins were different, highly glamorous, exotic, compatible with the encrypted channel, and praise the lord – there were two of them! Put them on together, and not only was it a real attention grabber; it also meant callers had twice the chance of getting through.
Both girls made their debut on the night of 11th to 12th August 2010, and they established themselves extremely quickly, going from complete newbies to top, headline acts in just a few weeks. By 2011 they were undeniably at the very forefront of Babestation’s glamourbase, epitomising everything fans of the channels were looking for.
The Twins left Babestation in a move to Red Light Central in January 2013.
Subsequently, Preeti has returned to Babestation, resuming as a leading model on the terrestrial shows. After a relatively short period away from the TV channels (which included some Web-based work with Cellcast), Priya resumed her TV appearances with Playboy/RLC.
There’s no question that Priya and Preeti have been two of the most important additions to the babe channels in the past five years, and whilst (as of November 2013) they’re appearing on separate shows, it’s very hard to mention one without thinking about, and mentioning the other.
