LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition, the national trade association for the adult industry, thanks Adam & Eve, a leader and trend-setter in the adult retail industry, for increasing its commitment to the organization at the Diamond level.
“Adam & Eve has been a supporter of FSC since 1999, and a stalwart advocate of sexual health and reproductive rights for over forty years,” said Eric Paul Leue, FSC’s Executive Director. “Phil Harvey’s decision to increase his company’s yearly support will help us defend and advocate for our retailers and pleasure product manufacturers more meaningfully. With our recent hire of a Director of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs, we are full-throttle in fighting regulatory and legal challenges to the pleasure products industry. We thank Phil, and Adam and Eve, and his commitment to science over stigma.”
Adam & Eve was founded in 1970 by Phil Harvey and Dr. Tim Black. A small storefront in Chapel Hill grew into mail-order powerhouse, selling condoms and other adult items. The company is now one of the largest retailers of pleasure products in the world. Through it all, it has been unwavering in its philanthropy and commitment to reproductive rights.
“FSC is a crucial voice for the adult industry in scientific, legislative and regulatory affairs,” said Phil Harvey. “Over the past year, the organization has grown in stature and effect, and we want to see it continue to grow. Adam & Eve has fought against ignorance and censorship since our earliest days, and it pleases me to be able to continue that fight by increasing the reach of FSC, and by extension our industry. I hope all of our friends and colleagues in the adult industry can pitch in.”
