FSC Executive Director Diane Duke said that it’s been a tough year for the adult entertainment industry, “but we have a special kind of strength and resilience that carries us through.”

“That strength and resilience is aptly demonstrated by each and every one of this year’s award recipients,” Duke said. “This is our opportunity to come together to celebrate who we are and to take pride in advancing the principles of freedom for which we stand.”

Bruce Cam, CEO and founder of Titan Media, told XBIZ that his company is grateful for the award.

“A very sincere and heartfelt thank-you to Diane Duke and the entire FSC board for recognizing Titan Media with this award,” Cam said. “I hope that we can continue to lead by example in the areas of content protection and safer sex thru the use of condoms in all our films. Our message to the industry is that protection and profit can indeed go hand in hand.”

In addition to the FSC Awards presentation, there will be red carpet arrivals, casino games, outdoor cigar lounge, musical entertainment, photo ops, a live auction, as well as formal dinner.
