NEW YORK – Adult industry veteran Ron Jeremy announced plans to host a Valentine's bash this year for, a New York-based adult dating site that caters to the swingers lifestyle.

Joe Brandi, owner of HeatParty, told XBiz he is expecting upwards of 400 attendees. The Feb. 5 party is the third annual Valentine's event the company has thrown in the East Coast, in addition to HeatParty swingers events that take place every few months in the New York area.

Brandi said that mixing swingers and adult entertainers at parties is a relatively new concept for East Coast audiences.

"So we started doing it and we got a really good response from people," he said.

On Nov. 13, adult entertainer Kerri Windsor hosted a HeatParty event that drew a crowd of nearly 300 people. HeatParty has also been contracted by The Erotic Expo to host all of its parties in May.

"We have some very big plans for 2005 and a lot is happening very quickly with the site and parties," Brandi said. "Working with Ron is both an honor and a pleasure and running all the parties for what could be the biggest adult convention in New York is extremely exciting."

The HeatParty website features ads for swingers, a nationwide list of parties, adult movies, chat rooms and message boards
