Attorneys Matt Hoffer (left) and Luke Lirot are already spearheading legal efforts ensuring gentlemen's clubs aren't denied government money amid the COVID-19 pandemic.


It’s the hottest topic in the adult industry today: SBA loans and the PPP (Payment Protection Plan), which in most instances are being denied to club owners across the US. While lawsuits are pending against this obvious discrimination against so-called “prurient” businesses, the upcoming ED Webcon on Thursday, April 16th at 2 pm EST will discuss this subject specifically. Joining the Webcon will be attorneys Luke Lirot and Matt Hoffer, who are well-versed in this subject and will be able to update the industry or where things currently stand and what you can do about your SBA/PPP denial.

In our effort to keep the industry connected at such a challenging time — while also helping to provide crucial information related to this ongoing situation — ED Publications has established the ED Webcons. These Webcons are designed to occur twice per week, on Tuesday and Thursday, consistently at 2 pm EST / 11 am PST. The subjects of each ED Webcon will be announced in advance, and the call is open to club owners, operators and other industry professionals.

Invitations to Thursday’s Webcon will be sent to club owners via email and Mailchimp e-blast (so please check your email and spam). If for some reason you do not receive this invitation with the web link to join the Webcon, email ED’s Associate Publisher Dave Manack at

If you’d like more information on the ED Webcon from this past Tuesday, where Dominion Payroll’s Kevin Wilson discussed the many intricacies of filing for the SBA/PPP, please read the story right here.

Important note: You will have to download the software first in order to join the Webcon. But it’s free and easy to download, and you can do it from your smartphone (just get the app), tablet or desktop! Also, you’ll need to click on the camera and microphone icons on your computer, when the Zoom screen pops up, to be seen and heard by the group (or you can go with audio only, you don’t have to be ‘on camera’ if you’d prefer not to). The ED Webcon is limited to the first 100 people who log on (that’s Zoom’s rules, not ours!)
