Feminists for Free Expression:
As a lifelong feminist, I've always been a particularly strong advocate of women's
sexual freedom. And I have always wanted to see more adult entertainment
produced for a female audience.
That's why I was thrilled to learn a few months ago about Playgirl TV, the first
cable channel directed toward women. And after visiting the channel's website,
I was anxious to learn when the station would be available in my area.
After writing my local cable company, however, I was told it had no current plans
to carry Playgirl TV -- despite the fact that this company offers many adult
stations geared toward men. And after speaking with Playgirl TV executives,
I believe that the same is true of many cable companies throughout the country. Even
today, they are reluctant to offer or promote adult entertainment from a women's
I want the same access to adult entertainment that men have enjoyed for years;
and I know many friends who want the same. As such, I have volunteered
to lead a Playgirl TV ambassador program that calls upon women across the country
to promote and request the channel in their local media markets.
I am not on the Playgirl payroll, and have not taken this position for professional
advancement. I am a longtime Playgirl reader who believes that it is the
only publication that addresses the sexual independence and education of women.
First, I would like to invite Feminists for Free Expression members to learn
more about my ambassador effort. And I was wondering if it would be possible
to provide more information for a FFE news item.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give, and thank you also for your organization
and everything it does.
