LOS ANGELES, CA – (NOVEMBER 1, 2012) – Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that Wicked Girl™ jessica drake has received the Free Speech Coalition’s 2012 Positive Image Award. Each year, the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) honors outstanding achievements by individuals and organizations within adult entertainment. For 2012, Ms. drake shares this distinction with veteran actor, activist and director Steven St. Croix, the co-star of her current Wicked release Crazy In Love.

“I am humbled and honored,” said Ms. drake upon hearing the FSC’s initial announcement. “The general public’s opinion of our industry and the people within it is something I try to change every day. But I’m not the only one. There are many very strong women in the adult business today, and I share this recognition with each and every one of them. My sincerest thanks to the Free Speech Coalition and, as always, my Wicked Pictures family.”

In a prepared statement, the FSC said the Positive Image Award recipients were determined by their efforts to “dispel myths and misconceptions about the adult entertainment industry through advocacy, public awareness programs and community service.”

For Ms. drake, such outreach has been accomplished in part by sponsoring and speaking at the forward-thinking sexuality expo CatalystCon, continuing her sexual wellness series and participating in yearly fundraising events like AIDS Walk Los Angeles.
