The West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce hosted their Mix n Mingle monthly business mixer at the Hustler Hollywood, on Wednesday, February 26. The adult retail store relocated to at 8873 Sunset Blvd Suite #5, just down the street from its original location, on April of last year.
WeHo Chamber members and potential members enjoyed a “ménage à trois” of wines, light bites and exchanged business cards while surrounded by sexual paraphernalia from wall to wall. Some talked shop while others shopped at the store.
Hustler Hollywood is part of the Larry Flynt empire, the media mogul who published Hustler Magazine and was not afraid to push boundaries in his fight for free speech.
The first Hustler Hollywood store opened on the world-famous Sunset Strip in 1998. From its inception, the goal has been to offer a sophisticated retail experience for the sexually curious who wish to explore new forms of eroticism. The store has a wide selection of high quality lingerie, erotica, sex toys, and novelties. It is run by a judgement-free and open-minded staff that is available to offer advice, tips and product suggestions.
“This is the store, more or less, giving a few feet, that opened over 20 years ago, and that’s because West Hollywood is one of the most accepting, most diverse melting pots in the United States,” said Hustler Marketing Coordinator, Dmitri Mikheyev, during a speech at the mixer. “As you will see from our map, we have expanded to 35 stores coast to coast, but we still call West Hollywood our home. We love meeting everybody and we love being a part of this community, so thank you for continuing to engage with us. Welcome to our new location.”
The mixer gave away two gift bags with naughty items at a free raffle. Each guest also walked away with an envelope containing condoms, lube and a 20% off discount card, along with a Hustler Hollywood bumper sticker.
With the exception of some holiday months, WHCC networking mixers are held on the last Wednesday of each month from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at various Member locations. (Cost for Members is free . Non-Members pay $20)
