FSC to Form Industry-Specific Committees

FSC to Form Industry-Specific Committees

CANOGA PARK — The Free Speech Coalition said today that it will begin formation of several industry sector-specific committees to monitor, address and recommend action on multiple issues facing the pleasure products and adult entertainment industries, including retail zoning laws, lubricant manufacture, piracy, counterfeit products and adult film regulation.

Each committee will meet separately from the FSC board to evaluate issues, build relationships, communicate goals and recommend engagement, said Eric Paul Leue, executive director of the FSC.

“The pleasure products and adult entertainment community is a diverse collection of producers, manufacturers, retailers, performers, agents and other industry professionals,” Leue said.

“To be an effective coalition, however, it is crucial that we are able to address the myriad of issues that affect our different members, and to do so quickly and effectively. By creating committees within each industry that will report to the board, we can better serve everyone in the coalition.”

Leue said that initial committees will be formed in the next few months, beginning with pleasure products, lubricant manufacturers, adult film, live content/cams and retailers.

Committees will meet once a month by conference call, and will be co-chaired by an industry member and a FSC staff member. Participation on a committee is open to all active members of the FSC.

Leue eventually sees a growing committee system as the key to expanding the FSC’s effectiveness in both public policy and industry growth.

“An engaged membership can accomplish so much more together than each of us can individually,” Leue said. “United we stand, divided we fall. Never has this been more true than it is today.”
