(HILLSBOROUGH, NC) -- Adam & Eve, the nation’s number one choice for all things erotic, has pulled its advertisements from Xm Radio’s "Opie & Anthony Show" following the duo’s 30 day suspension in censorship protest.
"We support free speech… not censorship," explains Adam & Eve Director of Marketing Chad Davis. "Adam & Eve was built on First Amendment rights. We cannot, in good conscience, ignore the fact that ‘Opie & Anthony’ were suspended over comments that the FCC has no jurisdiction over."
Joining Adam & Eve in this stand against censorship are numerous other advertisers and listeners.
"We’ve received word that thousands of customers have cancelled their subscriptions to Xm Radio over this," says Davis. "It’s obvious that America is taking the issue of free speech seriously."
Adam & Eve will be back on the air with their normal advertising schedule (effective 6/15/07) when ‘Opie & Anthony’ return from their suspension. While ‘Opie & Anthony’ is off the air, Adam & Eve will support its listeners by continuing to offer 50% almost any item on adameve.com by using code "XM202" at check out.

With over 10 million catalog and internet customers, Adam & Eve represents the best of the adult industry and has been featured in USA Today, Time Magazine, U.S. News & World Report, Men’s Health, Forbes, Gentleman’s Quarterly and more.
