FSC's vision is of a world in which the international adult industry, its workers and businesses, have equal rights, protections, and freedoms under the law; and where all people are protected from exploitation, and empowered by age-appropriate sexual health education.

- implement programs to support businesses and workers
- grow support networks within and outside of the industry
- engage in advocacy, legislative-, and regulatory work to improve health outcomes and alleviate injustices
- create a platform for open, honest, and factual discourse
- build working relationships with organizations and corporations outside of the industry

With more than 25 years of experience and a dedicated full time staff of four, we are able to reach thousands of industry businesses and workers in minutes. With the support of paying trade association members, we are able to maintain and improve our programs, support networks, advocacy, and more.

We continuously evaluate processes, procedures, and best practices in the industry.
We conduct annual surveys within the industry and among our membership to determine successes, needed improvements, and what new steps we can integrate into our development strategy.

We have continuously defeated counter-productive legislation and regulation, alleviated misconceptions about the industry, improved our partnerships with other organizations, and brought forward a system that has prevented HIV infections for over 13 years.
