Legends of Erotica Announces 2009 Hall of Fame Inductees

LAS VEGAS - Tom Byron, Shane, Stephanie Swift, and Sunset Thomas and the late Gerard Damiano will be inducted into the Legends of Erotica Hall of Fame during the 2009 Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.

Adult industry veteran Bill Margold organizes the annual ceremony at Ray Pistol's Showgirls Video, where the Hall of Fame inductees have placed their hand prints (and other body parts) in cement for 16 years.

"With the dwindling down of those deserving legendary recognition, the Class of 2009 kicks off a 'less is more' process that will now keep each class limited to only five names," Margold said.

Doubling as a fund raiser for Margold's P.A.W., the ceremony will be held Friday, Jan. 9 at 8 p.m. Showgirl Video is located at 631 Las Vegas Blvd. South. For more information, call (702) 385-4554.
