No jockstraps or thongs were on display as the Nasty Pig founders were recognized for their service to the community.

Nasty Pig founders David Lauterstein and Frederick Kearney were guests at the White House on Thursday, January 12 to receive formal recognition for thirty years of championing queer sexual positivity.

While there, they met with Dr Demetre Daskalakis, the White House National Mpox Response Deputy Coordinator, and Harold Phillips, the White House Office of National AIDS Policy Director, to discuss the Mpox epidemic and its continuing impact on gay men.

Even though Nasty Pig is a lifestyle brand selling sex, Lauerstein and Kearney say it’s important that men get their second dose of the Mpox vaccine and that health officials reach out to men living outside of major metropolitan areas with ways for them to get vaccinated that will not out them.
