Earlier this month, the Free Speech Coalition -- the adult association responsible for the recent anti-piracy PSAs -- threw its second annual benefit in conjunction with Hustler Hollywood, titled "The Freedom Party" and hosted by Tony Batman and Heather Chadwell, at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood.

"Partygoers were treated to an engaging night of adult entertainment while mixing and mingling till the wee morning hours," observed AVN's Steve Jabors. "A host of adult stars introduced X-rated film clips on the club's big screen, while others performed funny skits and even judged a blowjob and orgasm contest on stage... In keeping with the club's legendary rock pedigree, the baddest band in porn land took to the stage to crank out a set of rock 'n' roll hits. The band, GangBanG, fronted by Evan Stone on vocals, includes Barrett Blade (bass), Dale DaBone (drums) and Mark Stone (guitar)... The club's upstairs floor hosted a cadre of novelty companies displaying their wares."

"Cachapero said she was pleased with the industry's support and happy to see her month of planning and coordination come together," reported XBIZ's Dan Miller. "'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... 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.'"
