Free Speech Coalition (FSC) traveled to Las Vegas last week to attend the 30th Annual Adult Entertainment Expo, where the adult industry trade association hosted a booth to spread awareness and raise funds for opposition to the Los Angeles County “Safer Sex” in Adult Productions ordinance or, as it is more commonly known, Measure B.

The booth offered fans a grab bag of adult goodies, in exchange for a minimum donation with all funds going to the legal efforts against Measure B. Adult businesses including Vivid Entertainment, Wicked Pictures, Adam & Eve, Hustler, Girlfriend Films, MetArt, Manwin and The Screaming O contributed items for the gift bags, in a show of unified support for the suit recently filed against Measure B in federal district court. Funds raised from these donations totaled nearly $4,000.

“We are very grateful to the businesses that contributed to the bags – the fans were thrilled to get a big bag full of DVDs, T-shirts, hats, sex toys, a calendar, and other goodies,” said FSC Communications Director Joanne Cachapero. “Many were curious about Measure B. Once they understood that the law means a lot more than just condom use – that it actually means regulation of a problem that doesn’t exist and that Measure B could drive producers underground to places where there is no way to regulate production, the fans were more than happy to donate what they could. Several said they thought the law was stupid and said the industry should move to another area.”

The booth also featured a stellar roster of adult stars signing for fans, including Amber Lynn, Julia Ann, Dyanna Lauren, Jessica Drake, Teagan Presley, Kylie Ireland, Kimberly Kane, Aiden Starr, Charlotte Stokely, Tanya Tate, Caroline Pierce, Raylene, Amber Rain, Sheena Ryder, Natalia Starr and Christie Stevens.

“All these stars volunteered their time to work at the booth and ask for donations. We know that all of them were very busy during the show – FSC appreciates their participation so much,” Cachapero added. “It was great that they got to see lots of fans, but they also told the public and media why they are against Measure B, from the perspective of performers. It’s really important that people know the truth about what Measure B will do to performers and how the condom law threatens freedoms important to performers and the public.”

Lawyers for Vivid Entertainment, performers Kayden Kross and Logan Pierce recently filed suit in federal district court against the Los Angeles County “Safer Sex” in Adult Production Ordinance.
