The Naked Truth has been around since 2001, when it was started by then-stripper, Annie Temple.
Originally the site catered to exotic dancers and gained traction primarily in British Columbia. We held multi-year charity events like “Exotic Dancers for Cancer” in memory of Jocelyn and later we founded the “TNT Adult Entertainment Awards” held in Vancouver BC.
We even had 15 minutes of fame when the Breast Cancer Society of Canada rejected our donation in 2007. Annie’s face was plastered across mainstream media around the world!
Over the years, the community grew to include the adult entertainment industry as a whole.
Annie Temple had joined the BC Coalition of Experiential Communities (BCCEC), a group that consisted of adult industry professionals from diverse areas of the industry; and it just seemed like the right thing to do. Adult providers from other parts of the industry were silently participating anyway – so Annie made it official and opened the site up to all genders and genres of adult entertainment.
This new incarnation of The Naked Truth has been formed out of an idea that Susan Davis [one of our founding members of the BCCEC] had about combining our activism efforts from the past 20 years into one entity.
