WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (October 15, 2014) – TEAM WICKED, led by Wicked Pictures performer and director jessica drake, raised thousands of dollars for the 30th Annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, surpassing its original goal. Accumulating $14,585 in total donations for the October 12 event, Team Wicked ranks as the 15th highest fundraiser in 2014. This year’s 10 kilometer walk marks the fifth consecutive year drake has reprised her role as a “Star Walker” and the third year she’s organized TEAM WICKED on behalf of Wicked Pictures; TEAM WICKED has raised over $53,000 during those three years.

 

“I love supporting AIDS Walk LA and APLA,” said jessica drake. “Over the years as a participant, I’ve seen them make amazing progress helping those with HIV and taking part in research to prevent the spread of the disease as well. After doing the walk alone the first two years, I realized just how much we could accomplish by bringing TEAM WICKED together, and as always, I am SO proud of the team and SO grateful to Steve and Wicked Pictures for the support. I’m also thankful to everyone who donated their time and/or money. Thank you.”

 

Composed of drake, Wicked Pictures contract performer Asa Akira, and Wicked Pictures director Brad Armstrong, TEAM WICKED also included adult industry notables Allie Haze, Kylie Ireland, Victoria Rae Black, Anikka Albrite, Mick Blue, David Lord, Jack Napier, and Steviee Hughes.

 

“This was my third Aids Walk and this year we landed in the Top 15,” said Brad Armstrong. “That’s pretty impressive considering we’re going up against huge corporations like Toyota and Paramount Pictures. I also think it’s a great way for people in the adult business to show commitment to social issues, and I applaud Aids Walk LA for being open-minded enough to let us participate where other charities have shunned us.”

 

Steve Orenstein, founder of Wicked Pictures, also praised the team for its fundraising efforts, and thanked jessica drake for using her celebrity platform to impact the lives of others.

 

“I’m really proud of TEAM WICKED for coming together to make a difference in the lives of those affected by AIDS and HIV,” said Orenstein. “jessica uses her voice as a way to spread social consciousness, and the team exists thanks to her. I’m honored to have office staff – and amazing directors and actors, such as Brad and Asa – who continue to donate their time to the walk. The team succeeds because of everyone’s involvement.”

 

In addition to her charitable work, jessica drake is a highly sought after sexual wellness speaker and educator who lectures at universities and leads global seminars and workshops. She is the writer, producer, and director of the video series “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex,” which has received critical acclaim from adult industry authorities including AVN, XBIZ, and Fleshbot.com, as well as The Huffington Post.

 

AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn more than a half-million participants, who have collectively raised more than $72 million in its 27 years. The event, which has served as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States, is sponsored by AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA).

About AIDS Walk Los Angeles:
The world’s first AIDS Walk was developed by Craig R. Miller in 1984, during the height of the AIDS epidemic. Seeing the need for immediate action in response to this public-health emergency, Miller sought to fill the void left by the government’s negligible response to the crisis. Drawing on his experience as a political and community organizer, Miller’s approach combined grassroots activism with fundraising and other campaign strategies to raise both awareness and urgently needed funds for the fight against AIDS. Miller brought his idea to the fledgling AIDS service organization, AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), who hired the young activist to produce this new event. Miller and APLA expected to draw a crowd of 1,000 supporters and raise $100,000 for this very first AIDS Walk. On July 28, 1985 in Los Angeles, 4,500 courageous and visionary people assembled at Paramount Studios and raised an astonishing $673,000. Since 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn over a half-million participants who have collectively raised more than $72 million for APLA. The event serves as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States. For more information, visit http://www.aidswalk.net/.

jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex is written and directed by Wicked Pictures contract star jessica drake, who also received an AVN Award for Best Safe Sex Scene this year, for her performance with Brad Armstrong in Sexpionage: The Drake Chronicles (Wicked Pictures).

Held at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this past Saturday night, the AVN Awards annually celebrates the best of the best in the adult entertainment, sexual education and health, and novelty industries.

“I’m humbled and honored to have jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Anal Play for Men receive an AVN award,” says jessica. “When I first started doing my anal sex seminars, both women AND men were approaching me with questions about prostate play and anal toys for men, who want to further explore their sexuality. I made Anal Play for Men in direct response to all of their questions, and I knew it would be very well received. I’m hoping it also assists in further breaking down societal taboos around the topic.”

jessica adds, “As the line continues to grow with feedback from couples, retailers, and reviewers, I am constantly driven to improve each new volume. I’m looking forward to expanding the series even more in 2014 with new topics and inspiring collaborations.

The Huffington Post says of the series, “Watching her DVDs [is] fun, informative, and sexy all at once…Covering fellatio, anal sex, female masturbation, anal play for men and threesomes, drake uses real couples and porn stars to simulate scenes, as well as hard core sex scenes at the finale, to illustrate the point.” Senior Erotic Consultant Gram Ponante of Fleshbot.com calls drake’s work “Sexy but professional, [dropping] a great deal of science without appearing-as some sex-ed presenters do – like it’s a lecture … she is also savvy enough to not distract her audience by stealing the show.”

Adult industry reviewers agree; XCritic says of jessica drake’s Guide To Wicked Sex, “The down-to-earth dialogue and instructions create a very comfortable atmosphere for the viewer to watch and digest the information… The sexual display(s) by the performers during the instructional portion of this film are important factors in creating this more intimate mood. Overall, it’s the best … instructional film that I have ever seen.” Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor for NightMoves Magazine, echoes the support, saying, “The interviews are candid, open, very honest and also very helpful in understanding about pleasure zones, the whys and wherefores … The scenes are well done, sensual, sexual and not rushed but done in a manner that any man or woman can learn from and enjoy. This is an exceptional series that can enhance your sexual life and lead you into new areas of pleasure you didn’t think possible.”

A fervent educator on sexual health and wellness, drake is a highly sought-after sexual wellness speaker who lectures at universities, teaches seminars, and runs workshops globally.

The Pleasure Principle: Female Masturbation Techniques

The Pleasure Principle: Female Masturbation Techniques

At the beginning of 2012, we released jessica’s drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Female Masturbation. As I said in my introduction then, the best way to be a better lover is to love yourself. With the help of Julia Ann, Lily LaBeau, and Misty Stone, we illustrated ways the curious and experienced alike could unlock “the Big O.”

The movie has since earned an AVN Awards nomination for Best Specialty Release, and we’re very proud of the passion and inspiration everyone involved brought to it.

As revealed by Misty, Julia Ann, and Lily’s demonstration of some of the primary self-pleasure techniques, all masturbation ultimately begins and ends with the Self. So whether one requires visual stimulation, enjoys using a particular sex toy, or simply want to let her fingers do the job, the “best” technique is the one working for you…

“I Touch Myself”
That classic Divinyls song from the 90s speaks to the experience of a great number of us. Let’s face it – many of us achieve our first real orgasm with a vibrator, dildo, or other sex toy. That said, there are a dizzying number of appealing products on the market. Take your time to find the right one, even if it involves some trial and error. Hey, experimentation is fun – especially with erotic novelties. In the experience of many, toys are still the most versatile way to discover the erotic nuances and subtle physical sensations that take you where you want to go.

“The Sweetest Escape”
For many of us, arousal starts in the mind. So let’s cut to the chase – what turns you on? Whether it’s listening to Black Eyed Peas or Ke$ha with the bass turned to 11, or just checking out the latest “Late Night Comedy” release to hit your Netflix Instant Queue, seducing yourself upstairs first will make it easier to seduce yourself down below, whether with your fingers or a carefully chosen toy.

“Ladies’ Night”
You may have noticed a trend out in the marketplace – today’s adult boutiques aren’t like the XXX bookshops or inner city peep shows of the past. By and large, today’s adult stores are moving uptown, expanding their product lines to include lingerie, sexy lifestyle accessories, and sexy enhancers and lubricants, like our recently-launched Wicked Sensual Care Collection. Use the stores in your area as resources to not only find the stimulating products you may desire, but also to learn – many of the larger chains are now sponsoring “Ladies’ Night” events and inviting speakers, such as myself, to conduct seminars and answer questions.

“Picture This”
If visual stimulation is key for you, you’ll want to welcome Wicked into your world – and bed. While everything we produce is aimed at women and couples, our Wicked Passions titles are specifically designed to appeal to ladies’ erotic longings. I’m especially proud of A Love Story, which Brad Armstrong and I collaborated on for the line.

Whether adult movies, mainstream erotica or sexy novelties ultimately take you where you want to go, female masturbation, as we established at the beginning, is a very personal and intimate activity. But once you’ve found the visual, aural, or mental stimulation you crave, try experimenting with a small vibe. Most stores carry a variety of small clitoral stimulators. A small-ish rocket, rather than a gargantuan rubber dildo will likely be your best aid in the beginning.

Once you’re comfortable in your experimentation, be sure to revisit jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Female Masturbation. Julia Ann, Misty Stone, and Lily LaBeau bring diverse opinions to the table and provide sensual, explicit demonstrations giving you the guidance needed to love yourself in a way that’s uniquely “you.”

About AIDS Walk Los Angeles:

The world’s first AIDS Walk was developed by Craig R. Miller in 1984, during the height of the AIDS epidemic. Seeing the need for immediate action in response to this public-health emergency, Miller sought to fill the void left by the government’s negligible response to the crisis. Drawing on his experience as a political and community organizer, Miller’s approach combined grassroots activism with fundraising and other campaign strategies to raise both awareness and urgently needed funds for the fight against AIDS. Miller brought his idea to the fledgling AIDS service organization, AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), who hired the young activist to produce this new event. Miller and APLA expected to draw a crowd of 1,000 supporters and raise $100,000 for this very first AIDS Walk. On July 28, 1985 in Los Angeles, 4,500 courageous and visionary people assembled at Paramount Studios and raised an astonishing $673,000. Since 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn over a half-million participants who have collectively raised more than $72 million for APLA. The event serves as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States. For more information, visit http://www.aidswalk.net/.
