The 2014 edition of XBIZ 360 began Wednesday, January 22 at the W Hollywood Hotel, located at the world famous, Hollywood & Vine in Hollywood, California. The three day, B2B adult industry event will discuss topics of interest to everyone from brick and mortar adult product store owners to webmasters and adult film makers. It will culminate Friday with the 12th annual XBIZ Awards. Today was dedicated to the Pleasure Products Conference and the Adult Retail Conference. They dealt with such topics as Trends in E-commerce and the future of pleasure products. Both conferences had keynote speakers; Pleasure Products had Miroslav Slavic of LELO and the Retail Conference heard from Joel Kaminsky of Good Vibrations.

At the end of the day’s conference, the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) held their awards. A few of the recipients included Vivid Entertainment founder Steven Hirsch who received the Legacy Award and James Deen who was presented with the Positive Image Award.

Porn Star Bowling benefit for FSC and LATATA

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

On Sunday evening, Corbin Bowl in Tarzana hosted the Porn Star Bowling fundraiser benefiting the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) and the Licensed Adult Talent Agents Trade Association (LATATA). The fundraising event included bowling and a silent auction for the fundraising with karaoke and partying for the laughs.

There was a lot of talent there, most of whom were unknown to me before tonight but there were lots of familiar faces as well. Models from ATMLA, Foxxx Modeling, LADirect Modeling, Matrix Models, OC Modeling and Spiegler Girls made it fairly easy to take some entertaining photos. I had a good time and it looked like I was not alone.

These photos were taken July 28, 2013 at Corbin Bowl located at 19616 Ventura Blvd., Tarzana, CA. (more…)

Photos from the FSC protest against XXX

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Wednesday, I drove up to San Francisco to join others in the adult industry in participating in the Free Speech Coalition’s (FSC) protest against the implementation of the .XXX sTLD. The protest was held today, Thursday, in front of the Westin St. Francis Hotel where the 40th International Public ICANN Meeting was being held. I would estimate about 30 people from the adult industry came to show their support. A press conference was held afterward. We will find out Friday, whether our efforts were all for naught or not. These photos are from around the hotel, the ICANN meeting, the protest and press conference.

The FSC is requesting that those against the implementation of the .XXX sTLD, that use Twitter, to please use it to voice your disapproval. You can find FSC’s tweets at #FSC, and they can follow them at @FSCArmy.
