Hosted by adult legend Tera Patrick, presenters included Asa Akira, Andy San Dimas, Kayden Kross, Steven St. Croix, Jessie Andrews, Keiran Lee, Ron Jeremy, Marcus London, Tommy Gunn, CalExotics CEO Susan Colvin, Jessica Drake, Alex Braun and more.
During the event, Free Speech Coalition CEO Diane Duke announced, to much applause, the lawsuit the FSC just filed against Los Angeles County over the condom-only law.
