The second annual bash was a benefit for the Free Speech Coalition, the adult industry’s trade association.
There was no shortage of entertainment on the famous Whisky stage as a parade of adult stars took turns introducing clips of some major upcoming movies while others performed outrageous skits and even judged an orgasm and blowjob contest sponsored by The Screaming O.
A! Entertainment's Tony Batman MC'd the festivities that started early went late and didn't disappoint. Belladonna and director Erica McLean nearly stole the show when they formed a dildo-sucking tag team that turned into a heavy makeout session on stage.
Free Speech Coalition Membership Director Joanne Cachapero said she was pleased with the industry’s support and happy to see her month of planning and coordination come together.
“First, I want to thank all the performers, volunteers and staff that gave their own time at the event, in order to make it a huge success,” Cachapero said. “They are generous and turn out to support, and that’s wonderful. Also, special thanks to Hustler Hollywood, the Whisky a Go Go and A! Entertainment’s Tony Batman, as well as the other sponsors who donated so much to the party.
“The great thing about this event is that fans and industry get to mix in a very cool atmosphere. Every performer last night — starlets, musicians, and all — made it a great evening. It’s a good time, and that’s what adult entertainment is all about.”
In addition to the entire adult media contingent, the event attracted notable mainstream press coverage. G4TV captured the party on video, while a crew from TMZ was spotted in addition to a reporter from Maxim magazine.
Wicked Pictures amped up the star power with its entire contract roster in attendance — Jessica Drake, Alektra Blue, Kirsten Price, Kaylani Lei and Lupe Fuentes joined "Speed" director Brad Armstrong at the event. The company gave away DVD samplers, calendars and raffled off a gift basket filled with souvenirs.
Digital Playground contract stars Kayden Kross and Riley Steele did a naughty onstage bit promoting DP’s line of toys in addition to promoting “Body Heat.”
Performers Charlie Laine and Melissa Jacobs represented Adam and Eve in a product demo. Laine recently appeared in a FSC-produced anti-piracy video that attracted nearly 100,000 views on YouTube.
Bluebird Films star Madelyn Marie, just 24 hours after breaking her elbow in an accident with her horse Hercules, still made it to the party to present her company's “Bonny & Clide” trailer.
Starlet Kayla Paige modeled several outfits from Hustler’s apparel and lingerie lines, while party-goers perused a display of Hustler toys on the second level. Girlfriends Films showed a video montage from several of its series and owner Dan O'Connell & Co. helped Girlfriends VP Moose celebrate his birthday in one of the corner booths.
The porn band Gangbang performed covers of several classic rock songs with Evan Stone doing vocals, Barrett Blade and Mark Stone on guitar and Dale Dabone playing drums.
Evil Angel led off the night presenting a trailer that underscored the importance of Free Speech for all Americans, while Nicki Hunter did a burlesque dance number and Ron Jeremy offered some comic relief.
The show sponsors included Hustler Hollywood, Wicked, AEBN, Hot Movies, Adam & Eve, The Screaming O, Girlfriends Films, Digital Playground, Sportsheets, Bluebird Films and BeAMonstar.
