“The changes I have seen at FSC in the last year have been tremendous. The industry is more united than ever before, and we could not have accomplished this without them.”Chanel Preston
“FSC is the common thread of many fabrics of our adult industry. The recent hard won victory in the 2257 ruling, of which FSC was successful as the plaintiff, illustrates its importance. For decades, we have been able to count on this organization to bring us together. ”Joel Kaminsky
“For 25 years the FSC has worked hard at the local and state levels advocating for the rights & responsibilities of us who make our livings in adult entertainment. Let’s continue to support the vital efforts they pursue on our behalf!””Nina Hartley

The FSC is made up of the leaders of the adult pleasure products and film industry, and FSC members follow the industry code of ethics. When you join the coalition, and display the “FSC approved Member” certificate on your website, it’s a signal to others that you’re a reputable, dependable business partner.
Protect your business by tapping into collective knowledge – Whether it’s our powerful PASS protocols, bloodborne pathogen plan, 2257 software, or preferential access to attorneys, tax, payroll or HR professionals, the FSC has a huge repository of knowledge and experience that can save you time and trouble.
Free Speech Coalition has the power to secure deals that an individual small business is unable to do on its own, so as an FSC member, you can get preferred pricing with payment processors, access to banks and credit unions, and numerous other ways to increase your purchasing power.
