IMG 0403Jason Mohney

Even if you’ve never met Jason Mohney, chances are you know his lineage. As far as bloodlines are concerned, Jason is the heir apparent to one of the most well-known families in the adult nightclub industry. As the son of prominent industry veteran Harry Mohney, Jason is acutely aware of just how big a shadow his father casts. However, now in his 20th year in business, Jason has proven not only how to step aside from his dad’s legacy, but also to create his own as well.  
At 41, Jason—who doesn’t believe in giving himself a title—has overseen the construction or takeover of hundreds of clubs across the U.S. and abroad under either the Deja Vu, Little Darlings or Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club banner. Calling Las Vegas home for now, Jason’s day-to-day is at the Hustler Club LV. However, when we caught up with him, he was in Oklahoma City ushering in the city’s first all-nude club, due sometime in the fall. An avid sportsman, we were most surprised to learn that Jason would much rather be out of doors than in, despite how he spends most of his nights. We spoke to Jason about his dad, big game hunting, and knowing how to throw a party every day in a city that sets the standard for spectacle. — Kristofer Kay

He’s lived around the world and back again, but no place can top NOLA.

“I’ve lived from Australia to France, all over the U.S. too, but no other city in my opinion comes close to New Orleans. It’s my favorite; it’s twenty-four hours, it’s casual and has tons of authentic culture. When you’re in New Orleans, there’s always something to do. I’m looking forward to having this year’s Expo there too; I think people are in for a great time and have a chance to discover one of the best cities in the country.”  

He’s a workaholic, but that doesn’t mean he never gets to enjoy nature’s many splendors.  

“Most people don’t know that I prefer being outside. Work is music, fun, the girls, the party—all that, sure. Living in Las Vegas I get the chance to host a lot of celebrities at the club. But I’d much rather be spending my time camping, or scuba diving or hiking. It’s where I’m most happy.”

He’s got a better handicap than you.

“Golf is another one of my passions. I’ve had the chance to play on courses all over the world, like Thailand, Cuba, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Costa Rica, just to name a few. In Thailand they have some beautiful courses with the most amazing caddies you’ve ever encountered. These guys can do anything on a golf course, they’re true caddies. My dad and I had a great time playing there.”

When he’s not swinging a club, he’s carrying a quiver.

“I also like to go big-game hunting in South Africa. But instead of a rifle I prefer to use a bow. Archery is such a fun activity, and when you’re hunting, there’s a greater feeling compared to a gun. I’ve hunted wildebeests, warthogs, water buffalo, even kudu. Out on a hunt, especially in South America, there is just something that has to be experienced to be believed, nature at its finest. I remember being up in a tree, just waiting, and about eight yards away walks up an elephant. Watching them in the wild is breathtaking, their trunks have this wonderful dexterity.”

He’s one Tough Mudder.

“These obstacle race competitions have piqued my interest. So far, I’ve participated in The Gladiator Run, The Wipeout Run and Tough Mudder. Some friends of mine and I are currently training for the Spartan Run. We try to get people in the [adult nightclub] industry to do it. It’s very fun—grueling, but fun—and makes for good team building as well. I don’t think I could ever do American Ninja Warrior, those guys are at the top of their game. But for these other races, I’m all in.”

Do you really know Justice...


Somewhere on a lonely highway, deep in the heart of Alberta, Canada, Justice has pulled over. She’s smart enough to realize that if you’re doing a phone interview—and you’re miles away from your destination—it’s a good idea to concentrate on either the road or your interviewer, not both. She’s between Canadian feature bookings which, as she explains, aren’t quite the same as American feature bookings.

Do you really know Tony...

During the day, he’s the mild-mannered, easy going Anthony Pucillo. But when the night arrives he comes alive, assuming his alter ego. The signal has been sent. They’re clamoring for “Batman” and the “powers” that he’ll bring with him.
But this Batman doesn’t have a mask, or a cape, or any of those fancy gadgets. This Batman arrives, instead, wearing a fedora hat and a sport jacket. His lone “fancy gadget” is a wireless microphone that he wields with flair. And those that send out the “bat signal,” if you will, are the myriad of adult nightclubs, dance contest producers and other adult industry pros who hire Pucillo—aka, Tony Batman—to host and emcee their events.

Trendy designs, tons of choices

T-shirts and jeans are the constant in just about every American man’s wardrobe. But as any guy will tell you, the choice of which t-shirt or pair of jeans to pull out of his closet has more to do with the fit and quality of said t-shirt and jeans than anything else.
Adult nightclubs don’t sell jeans. But over the past three decades, clubs in this industy have sold an awful lot of t-shirts, whether sold via a club’s “store” or as part of an “uptime” dance promotion.

A Fantasy Come True

dean-gettleson2Dean Gettleson, owner and operator of Fantasy Island in Los Angeles, shares some of the trials, tribulations and triumphs he has experienced over the last two decades as an adult club owner.
As an attorney in general practice since 1975, Dean Gettleson has long represented boxers and boxing promoters and has himself been a boxing promoter. But in 1994, one of his clients, who had rock and dance clubs, opened an adult nightclub, Fantasy Island, with some partners. There were very few adult clubs in LA then, and Gettleson went into the venture initially as an investor, but soon became the owner and operator of the venue—without any more experience than a previous investor in a rock club. But he learned quickly.
