LAS VEGAS — The Free Speech Coalition will host a special, one-hour panel featuring top talent from converging segments of the adult industry to discuss what they wish they would’ve known prior to entering the adult industry. They will offer advice and anecdotes of their first impressions, first mistakes, and first successes along their career path, sharing insights with current and hopeful adult performers.

The panel will be moderated by AVN award winning adult performer, producer, and director, Casey Calvert. Calvert, an industry veteran, is well-known for everything from extreme BDSM to the softest solo scene, and everything in between. She also runs a very successful custom video business, and has parlayed her performing experience into directorial work for both Gamma and Lust Cinema. 

The panel will include, jessica drake, Ana Foxxx, Casey Kisses, Karla Lane, and Wolf Hudson.

The panel will be recorded for future integration into FSC’s INSPIRE Program. The goal is to inspire better decision making among newcomers to the adult industry in the performer space. With proper knowledge, preparation and insights from those at the top, we hope to help more people succeed.
