CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Free Speech Coalition (FSC) on Wednesday announced that adult novelty companies Doc Johnson and Pipedream Products have become the newest members of the adult industry trade association.

“We welcome Pipedream and Doc Johnson to our membership,” said FSC CEO Diane Duke. “Both companies are industry leaders and pioneers, bringing innovation to the novelty market for decades. We’re especially thrilled to have both companies support the No on Measure B campaign, because this issue affects all segments of the industry.

“Going forward, we look forward to doing more work with both Pipedream and Doc Johnson in the wholesale/retail side of the industry,” Duke added.

Doc Johnson was found in 1976 and has been referred to by Los Angeles Magazine as “the Procter & Gamble of sex toys.”

Doc Johnson founder Ron Braverman said, “Supporting the campaign to oppose Measure B is imperative to the entire adult industry; the irrational and extremist policies Measure B would impose on all of us would be devastating. As a founder of the novelty side of the industry, I stand firmly ‘NO on Measure B’ — I am glad to once again be onboard with FSC.”

Pipedream Products was founded in 1973 by Bob Feldman. The company currently includes more than 3,000 products in its catalog. CEO Nick Orlandino was named to the Storerotica Hall of Fame this year, and the company also was named Company of the Year.

"I am proud to be a member of the Free Speech Coalition," Orlandino said. "As a leader in the adult novelty industry, Pipedream is prepared to do whatever it takes to protect the industry from Measure B."
