Hot Vidéo is a French trade journal that covers the adult video industry. It was founded in June 1989 by Fabrice Castel and Eric Vincent, and it is edited by VCV Communication. Its average circulation date to 2011 is about 50,000 copies per month, while in the 90's it was about 100,000 copies. Its staff include professional journalists previously committed to other news fields.
Hot Vidéo in 1992 launched Hot D'Or, an adult film industry award, awarded annually from 1992 to 2001 and returned in 2009 on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the magazine. In 1996 it even launched a trade fair, the Salon de la Vidéo Hot, in Paris; the first two editions attracted over 70,000 visitors.
Between 2010 and 2012 Hot Video was involved in a controversity with National Federation of firefighters of France (FNSPF), that accused the magazine of defamation and insult in relation to an article titled "Survey truth about sex and firefighters" ("Enquête vérité sur le sexe et les pompiers"). The case was finally dismissed by court.
