Report: AHF's Ballot Initiative Could Cost CA Taxpayers Millions

AHF's Ballot Initiative Could Cost CA Taxpayers Millions

LOS ANGELES—AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has apparently paid its signature gatherers enough so that its "California Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act" ballot initiative, which would install its president Michael Weinstein as California's "porn czar," will appear on California's November 2016 ballot, barring the success of legal challenges that may yet be filed against it.

ADVERTISEMENT


However, one little-reported aspect of the initiative is its intended revision of Section 6720.6 of the California Labor Code, subsection (a) of which reads, in pertinent part, "Any person who violates any provision of this Act shall be liable via the administrative enforcement process, or via a civil action brought by the Division or its designee, a civil prosecutor, an adult film performer aggrieved by a violation of Labor Code section 6720, or an individual residing in the State of California."

That particular section inspired adult industry commentator Tracy Clark-Flory to post an article on Vocativ.com titled "Porn Stars Vulnerable To Trolling, Lawsuits Thanks To New Measure," which notes that the initiative "empowers everyday citizens to sue adult film producers for creating condomless porn—and offers a financial incentive for doing so."And as Clark-Flory notes later in the article, that could include any number of the 38.8 million California residents, with the initiative guaranteeing that, "if judgment is entered against one or more defendants in an action … penalties recovered by the plaintiff shall be distributed as follows: 75 percent to the State of California and 25 percent to the plaintiff."

"This bill puts performers at the mercy of any citizen, including those who misjudge and scorn the adult film industry," Chanel Preston, president of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, told Clark-Flory. "Any person or group with an anti-porn agenda, anyone with a personal issue with a specific performer, or an overly zealous fan could use this power as a means to attack performers in the industry."

While it's true that the adult industry isn't making as many hardcore movies per year as it did as recently as 2008, at the start of the Great Recession, there's nothing in the ballot initiative that limits which adult movies can be the subject of citizen complaints—or even that it has to be a movie. It could be simply a scene that was shot in California and posted on a website, or even a webcam show originating within the state, since the initiative defines "filmed" and "filming" as "the recording, streaming, or real-time broadcast of any adult film."

But what that means is that any sexually explicit movie ever made that was shot in California, in which condoms are not used for vaginal or anal intercourse, could be the subject of a Cal/OSHA complaint and/or citizen lawsuit—and there are tens of thousands of them still on the market, with new ones being produced every day. And even if the courts limit such suits to movies (or web content) made after Section 5193 of the Health Code was enacted, or ones made after the initiative passes, the number could still be in the thousands, triggering millions in court costs, all of which would be borne by California taxpayers.

Now, the initiative doesn't set out exactly how a citizen can bring a civil suit against an adult producer—presumably he/she would have to hire her/his own attorney, though we can't help but suspect that AIDS Healthcare will have a cadre of legal representatives at the ready, possibly with boilerplate pleadings ready to be tweaked to deal with the specific "violations" found in any movie—but the initiative does state that, "The court shall award to a plaintiff or defendant other than a governmental agency who prevails in any action authorized by this Act and brought pursuant to this section the costs of litigation, including reasonable attorney's fees."

The possibility of a defendant recovering such fees from a plaintiff, though, is vanishingly small, since for that to happen, "the court must first find that the plaintiff's pursuit of the litigation was frivolous or in bad faith"—a difficult standard for a defendant to meet. On the other hand, depending on what deal AHF may make with the attorneys to whom it sends citizen porn complainants, "reasonable attorney's fees" could be a hell of a tidy sum; possibly even more than the court would award for the condomless movie.

Of course, if a citizen has a complaint about a condomless adult movie, she/he must first file such complaint with Cal/OSHA, but as the article notes, "if the department declines or doesn't respond within 21 days, or if the case isn't pursued within 45 days, it's fair game. If Cal/OSHA pursues the tip but then abandons it, or if the case is dismissed, it's also up for grabs."

Clark-Flory also points to another problem created by the initiative: Who's a "producer"?

"Pretty much every performer at this point is also a producer," Clark-Flory quotes Free Speech Coalition spokesperson Michael Stabile as stating. "Performers have their own websites, they sell clips, they do webcam shows. ... All I have to do as a private citizen is see a performer not using a condom in a video, and I get to haul them into court."

Clark-Flory gives Stabile the final word on the subject, and we can only echo it: "Like many moralists, Weinstein believes he has to destroy the village in order to save it."

UPDATED: Made a Sex Tape in the U.S.? Join U.K's 'Celebrity Big Brother!'

Made a Sex Tape in the U.S.? Join U.K's 'Celebrity Big Brother!'

Posted Aug 28th, 2015 02:52 PM

LONDON—Across the pond, the BBC recently announced cast members for the next installment of Celebrity Big Brother, and fans and critics are accusing producers of playing fast and loose with the word “celebrity.”

Apparently it’s not just Americans who dip deep into the C- and D-level talent pool when it comes to casting “celebrity” versions of reality TV shows.

Of note to the adult industry is that the upcoming season, which is themed U.K. vs. USA, features three women who have been nominated for AVN Awards (and in some cases were winners).

ADVERTISEMENT


Jenna Jameson, Farrah Abraham and Tila Tequila are among the cast members for the BBC show, which began airing Aug. 29 on Channel 5.

Already, critics—including Eamonn Holmes, host of ITV1 in the U.K.—are lashing out at the women, with most of their venom targeted specifically toward Abraham, the former star of MTV’s Teen Mom who has since appeared in Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom with James Deen and developed her own line of sex toys with Topco Sales.

“Farrah is truly hateful,” Holmes said in an interview. “She’s toxic!”

According to various news reports, Abraham is already stirring the pot and making enemies.

He didn’t hold back when it came to Jameson and Tequila either, saying he doesn’t approve of having three porn stars being in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

To be fair, only Jameson can truly be labeled a porn star. Often considered the biggest porn star ever, Jameson didn’t become a reality TV fixture until after her retirement from the adult industry. Most recently she appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy. Interestingly enough, a fellow castmate during her season was a previous winner of the American version of Big Brother, Evel Dick Donato.

Farrah was on reality TV before she agreed to appear in a sex tape for Vivid. And Tila Tequila was a model and star of MTV’s A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila and A Shot At Love II With Tila Tequila before she also appeared in a sex tape for Vivid. Her Tila Tequila 2: Backdoored & Squirting beat out Farrah’s release for Best Celebrity Sex Tape at the 2015 AVN Awards.

Celebrity Big Brother is a television reality game show that follows a number of celebrity contestants, known as housemates, who are isolated from the outside world for an extended period of time in a custom-built house. Each week one of the housemates is evicted by a public vote, with the last housemate remaining winning a cash prize for the charity of their choice. The series takes its name from George Orwell's 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

UPDATE (2:52 p.m. Pacific time, Aug. 28): Tila Tequila was removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house on Aug. 28 after producers of the show were alerted to anti-Semitic remarks she had posted on social media. According to news sites in the U.K., producers were unaware of the postings prior to her being cast on the show.

Noel Biderman, CEO of Ashley Madison Parent, Steps Down

Noel Biderman, CEO of Ashley Madison Parent, Steps Down

CYBERSPACE—Amid the news pieces of a security breach, a data dump of hacked info on the Dark Web and reports that the vast, vast majority of the female profiles were fake, Noel Biderman—CEO of Avid Life Media, the parent company of AshleyMadison.com—is stepping down.

A statement on the website, which boasted the tagline “Life is short. Have an affair,” reads: “This change is in the best interest of the company and allows us to continue to provide support to our members and dedicated employees. We are steadfast in our commitment to our customer base. We are actively adjusting to the attack on our business and members’ privacy by criminals.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Biderman has not released any personal statement about his resignation, nor has he released any statement on the hacking of the site and the release of customers’ personal information.

The data dump, which happened earlier this month, became fodder for various news outlets reporting everything from "family values" conservative Josh Duggar’s accounts on the site to the suicides of ordinary citizens who were allegedly members at some point.

AVN Senior Editor Mark Kernes detailed much of the fallout in his op-ed piece published this week.

Neither Avid Life Media nor Biderman make note of the exact reason(s) for his resignation in the statement on the site, but it comes on the heels of a third release of data from the hackers, this time containing email from Biderman’s personal Gmail account. The second data dump included emails from what appeared to be Biderman’s work email address.

It’s virtually impossible to know if the resignation is over the actual data breach, the discovery that customers who paid about $20 to have their info removed from the site still had their information show up in the data dump, the recent reports from sites like Gizmodo.com which analyzed the data and found out that not only were the majority of the profiles males, but that the majority of the female profiles were fake, or any number of tragic stories about customers who lives have been ruined or ended because of the debacle.

Regardless, according to the remaining management at Avid Life Media, "We are steadfast in our commitment to our customer base. … We will continue to provide access to our unique platforms for our worldwide members.”

LA Metro Could Learn Something From Taiwanese Transit System

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

LA Metro Could Learn Something From Taiwanese Transit System

LOS ANGELES—There's little dispute that the Los Angeles area is the adult entertainment (read: porn) capital of the world—but it's not as if the city has done anything to cash in on that fame. So now, if those who run the LA Metro public transit system are smart, they'll have a chance to do something about that—by following the lead of Taiwan aka the Republic of China.

Next week, the EasyCard Corporation, which produces fare cards which are good for riding the island's public transit system and making purchases at some convenience stores, will release a limited-edition pair of "contactless payment" cards featuring Japanese porn star Yui Hatano in two looks: "Angel," depicting Yui smiling and dressed all in white (though that may change), and "Devil," with the actress "dressed in black and shooting a sultry gaze at the camera."

ADVERTISEMENT


"Pornography is conspicuous by its absence," noted the Reuters News Service article.

The cards will sell for 500 New Taiwan Dollars per set (US$15.46), the proceeds from which will be donated to various charitable foundations.

"We will issue the 'devil' edition Yui Hatano cards beginning September 1 as originally planned," EasyCard Corp said in a press release, adding that the "angel" edition will be delayed probably until mid-September, possibly with a change to the originally planned theme after the company gets "input from various parties."

The company had even considered not releasing either of the cards after it had received "angry public reaction," but relented after Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je indicated that he thought that would be a bad "business judgment."

Hatano herself said she was pleased with the idea.

"Just because I am an adult video porn star ... does it mean that I cannot pay a debt of gratitude to my beloved Taiwan?" she said, in a statement quoted by the Focus Taiwan news website.

So now, the question is: Why doesn't LA Metro consider putting some of the adult industry's more popular actresses (and actors) on its own limited-edition metro cards and sell them at a premium? Such an issuance would undoubtedly become a collector's item, not just for Los Angeles residents, but for consumers across the country, if not the entire world—most of whom would not even use whatever funds come with a card purchase, thus saving the transportation company even more money! And of course, those who do use the card will be doing their part to stave off global warming—a win-win no matter how one looks at it!

So how about it, LA Metro? Give yourself and the adult industry a break and make some cash—probably a shitload of it—at the same time!

Joanna Angel's 'Ronda ArouseMe' Now Up on BurningAngel.com

Joanna Angel's 'Ronda ArouseMe' Now Up on BurningAngel.com

Posted Aug 28th, 2015 08:01 AM

LOS ANGELES—The opening scene of BurningAngel's much-ballyhooed porn parody of UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, Ronda Arouse Me: Grounded and Pounded, is now streaming online at BurningAngel.com.

The first pounding in the four-part online scene depicts the fighter, played by Kleio Valentien, in a hot workout session with her trainer (Derrick Pierce) with winning results.

BurningAngel founder (and 2016 AVN Awards co-host) Joanna Angel directed the highly publicized ArouseMe, and Rousey herself publicly responded to the parody, noting that the sexy nickname wasn't new: "It's funny, I used to hear that in high school sometimes!"

ADVERTISEMENT


"This movie has gotten more attention than anything we have ever done; I'm excited for the fans to finally get to watch it," said Angel, who will roll out Ronda Arouse Me's next three scenes in the coming weeks. "It's my own special way of giving props to the most powerful woman in the world."

In the film, Ronda ArouseMe (Valentien), the Olympic medalist in Kama Sutra and reigning UPC (Ultimate Porno Championship) Women's Bantamweight Champion, charts her difficult path to sexual glory, squaring off against her long-standing opponent and foe, Miesha Taint (Sammie Six). Arabelle Raphael and Moe the Monster Johnson round out the knockout cast; Angel and Small Hands contribute non-sex roles as commentators.

"Fans of official UFC announcer Bruce Buffer will appreciate my special appearance as 'Bruce Butthurt', complete with Buffer's famous catchphrases," said Angel. "Many of our viewers will find that funny."

Valentien, who mustered some serious punches and fought convincingly on set, is a big fan of Rousey's and hopes she is flattered by the parody and sexual empowerment message at the heart of ArouseMe.

"She's inspiring as a fighter and as a woman," said Valentien. "I hope Ronda gets a chance to see the movie; we respectfully made every effort to represent her as the strong, sexy woman that she is."

For a peek at Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded, go to BurningAngel's blog page.

Devil’s Film Takes Over DVD Distro for Third World Media

Devil’s Film Takes Over DVD Distro for Third World Media

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Giant Media Group, parent company of Devil's Film, has acquired worldwide rights for DVD distribution sales for TWM (formerly known as Third World Media). Their roster of distributed studios includes Grooby Productions, Gia Darling Entertainment, and Direct Japanese Imports.

TWM President Steve Scott commented on the new deal, which will see Devil's Film stalwarts Steve Volponi and Eric Gutterman handling sales. "I have known Steve and Eric for many years and have always respected them personally as well as professionally. For us to be joining forces after all these years speaks to the longevity of our companies and to the compatibility of our companies. We look forward to a bright future together."

ADVERTISEMENT


Added Ed Hunter, an award-winning director who works exclusively with TWM, “The kings of the transsexual genre have come together and the opportunities for us are endless! These are very exciting times!”

“Eric told me that he received a call from Steve Scott a few days ago, and asked me what I thought about taking over the sales for TWM, and to me it seemed to be a great fit,” said Devil’s Film V.P. of Sales and Production Steve Volponi. “It’s going to be just about as flawless of a transition as possible as GMG is doing all the sales but TWM is still going to be doing all shipping, invoicing and accounting right from their current offices.”

Assured Volponi, “There will be little or no down time at all for getting your orders out the door!”

To obtain TWM's new September releases as well as re-orders on all DVD products, email steve@devilsfilm.com or eric@devilsfilm.com.

Categories, Eligibility Requirements Released for 2016 AVN Awards

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Categories, Eligibility Requirements Released for 2016 AVN Awards

The 2016 AVN Awards Show will take place Saturday, January 23 at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The presenting sponsor is Chaturbate, and this year's co-hosts are Anikka Albrite and Joanna Angel.

ADVERTISEMENT


Never let it be said that the AVN Awards team is afraid of change. Last year, as always, AVN added some new categories and tweaked others. But more significantly, for the first time content released solely on VOD was eligible for AVN Awards consideration. Now, AVN is taking another step toward greater inclusiveness by opening up four high-profile scene categories to include content released solely for membership sites.

This change is being made to better reflect what should be the most important concern in judging an award-winning sex scene: the skills of the director and the performers, rather than how the scene reaches fans.

In these four categories only, AVN will now accept pre-nominations of scenes produced for release on membership sites:

Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene

Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene

Best Oral Sex Scene

Best Anal Sex Scene

“This is a step we have thought through very meticulously and from every angle possible, and we feel certain that now is the time to implement it,” AVN senior editor Peter Warren said. “There has been a fundamental shift in the way both industry members and consumers think about how the core element of adult entertainment—sex scenes—most commonly reach their audience. These being the four most basic and popular types of sex scenes, we felt they were the ones to best lead the way for the AVN Awards in this key transition.” 

As with all contests, some restrictions apply. See below for details on eligibility for the 2016 AVN Awards.

Eligibility Period
To be considered in any of the video categories, including the aforementioned scene categories, a title and/or scene must have been made available commercially during the eligibility period, which runs from October 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015. If a scene in one of the four eligible categories is released as both a standalone web scene and as an entity of a movie released either on DVD or VOD, the scene will by default be considered an entity of the movie. For consideration in all other categories, a movie must be released in its entirety as of September 30, 2015. Any scene individually considered for a 2016 AVN Award will be void from consideration in all future years if included as an entity of any movie released after September 30, 2015.

DVD/VOD Eligibility
To be considered for nomination, movies released via DVD/VOD must either fit AVN’s traditional distribution requirements of being stocked with five wholesale distributors and/or 100 retail outlets (on DVD), or be made available for VOD download and/or streaming as follows:

• Must be available through a minimum of two (2) major for-pay VOD providers, defined as ones carrying movies from at least 100 active labels/studios.

• Must have clearly marked post dates falling within the eligibility period across all qualifying VOD platforms carrying it.

• Companies wishing to submit VOD-only titles to AVN for consideration in the 2016 AVN Awards must provide links showing that said titles meet the above requirements.

Standalone Web Scene Eligibility
To be considered for nomination in the one of the four eligible categories, scenes must be released on a site that has members who are paying a monthly fee to access the site’s content. As with producers of content that is distributed on DVD and VOD, membership sites must also maintain 2257 records.

At the beginning of September, AVN will begin accepting pre-nominations for the 2016 AVN Awards. Check AVN.com for details on accessing the pre-nomination website. The site will remain open until midnight on September 30.

AVN has redefined some of the categories for the 2016 AVN Awards with an eye toward making it easier for studios, directors and performers to nominate their work. Particularly notable are changes in the feature and non-feature movie category.

Directors and studios can now nominate non-features in two categories. Best Gonzo Movie is for projects that employ a cinema verité style making the cameraperson a participant in the proceedings, which may or may not incorporate POV footage. Best Anthology Movie is for projects that include either vignettes or all-sex scenes or a combination of the two. There are also niche categories in which non-narrative movies can be nominated.

Narrative movies can be nominated in the traditional arenas of drama, comedy and parody. Movies with storylines can also be nominated in niche categories when they fit the criteria. And AVN has added a new niche this year, Best Polyamory Movie, to recognize the wave of titles that derive their erotic charge from extracurricular sex of various flavors, from hotwife fantasies to swinger scenarios to cuckolding.

Pot, NORML and the New Normal

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Pot, NORML and the New Normal

COLORADO SOMEWHERE—We've heard that one or two folks in the adult industry have been known to partake of marijuana on occasion—a good choice, considering how many legal drugs like tobacco, alcohol and caffeine are incredibly bad for you—so we thought we'd catch up on some of the pot-related news that might affect AVN's readership.

For instance, in early July, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon, a state which recently legalized possession of the stuff) introduced a bill in Congress titled The Marijuana Business Access to Banking Act of 2015 (S. 1726), which would allow banks and other financial institutions to enter into business relationships with marijuana growers and sellers. That's something the banks had been loath to do, since although 18 states have legalized it for medical use, and four have legalized it outright, the federal government still considers it a Schedule I drug, on a par with heroin and other opioids (thanks, Harry Anslinger!) and (oddly) LSD, and they worried that the feds would come down on them if they did business with pot businesses.

ADVERTISEMENT


The bill passed the Senate Appropriations Committee by a 16-14 vote—Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) joined 13 Republicans to vote against it—and is currently in the Senate's Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. It would, among other things, prohibit federal banking regulators from "terminat[ing] or limit[ing] the deposit insurance or share insurance of a depository institution under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act or the Federal Credit Union Act solely because the depository institution provides or has provided financial services to a marijuana-related legitimate business," or "prohibit[ing], penaliz[ing], or otherwise discourag[ing] a depository institution from providing financial services to a marijuana-related legitimate business."

Of course, porn people already knows what that's like. Within the past year, there have been several reports of banks closing the accounts of, or denying loans to, members of the adult entertainment industry and even their significant others, and Visa and Mastercard recently stopped allowing people to charge their ads on Backpage.com to those credit cards.

It's unclear when S. 1726 will be taken up by the full Senate, and considering the ongoing Republican refusal to consider virtually all progressive legislation, perhaps that "when" should be "if." But we can always hope... especially since a recent article on the Marijuana Policy Project website revealed the "Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Consumers," a list that includes Obama (of course; everyone knew that), Oprah, Steven Colbert, Jon Stewart, Martha Stewart—and a few surprises: Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, W, Clarence Thomas—and eight 2016 presidential candidates: Bernie Sanders (of course!), JEB!, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Rand Paul, George Pataki and Lincoln Chafee. (Note: None of them admit to smoking it now, and most said they tried it once or twice and didn't like it... but still...)

One thing that might spur such action is the fact that the National Conference of State Legislatures recently issued a Resolution whose penultimate paragraph reads, "NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the National Conference of State Legislatures believes that federal laws, including the Controlled Substances Act, should be amended to explicitly allow states to set their own marijuana and hemp policies without federal interference and urges the administration not to undermine state marijuana and hemp policies."

Of course, the Conference recognized that several of its members don't support any form of legalizations, and would allow those states to set policies that even kept pot illegal—but still, it's a really good step in the right direction.

It was perhaps with that Resolution in mind that the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) sent a email to its followers on August 17 suggesting that while federal legislators are back in their home states on vacation, legalization supporters should lobby those pols to roll back the pot prohibition—and that they should support the NORML Political Action Committee (NORML PAC) in its attempt to get marijuana-friendly candidates elected or reelected to national office. NORML will soon be issuing a Congressional Marijuana Report Card of who's naughty and who's nice when it comes to legalization—and we're guessing Sen. Feinstein will be getting coal in her stocking on that one.

And speaking of "marijuana prohibition," that's exactly the term The New York Times used in an editorial on July 27, recalling the 13 years between the passage of the Volstead Act (aka Amendment 18 to the U.S. Constitution) which criminalized the manufacture, sale and transportation of liquor, and its repeal (Amendment 21) in 1933—though, like today, illegality didn't stop most people who wanted a drink from getting one, and fully half of the movies Hollywood produced between the advent of film sound in 1928 and Prohibition's repeal depicted well-stocked liquor cabinets in most middle class and rich folks' homes.

After stating flatly that, "The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana," The Times noted, "The social costs of the marijuana laws are vast. There were 658,000 arrests for marijuana possession in 2012, according to F.B.I. figures, compared with 256,000 for cocaine, heroin and their derivatives. Even worse, the result is racist, falling disproportionately on young black men, ruining their lives and creating new generations of career criminals...  Creating systems for regulating manufacture, sale and marketing will be complex. But those problems are solvable, and would have long been dealt with had we as a nation not clung to the decision to make marijuana production and use a federal crime."

Of course, if The New York Times is for something, it's a pretty good bet that the old-line conservative religious organizations and their house organs are against it—so it comes as no surprise that on August 18, the Baptist Press published not one but two anti-pot articles.

The first, by Erin Roach, titled "Marijuana legalization presses on amid concerns," begins by noting that, "Marijuana legalization advocates continue to gain ground as nearly half of all states have decriminalized marijuana possession at least for medical purposes and a majority of Americans reportedly have told pollsters marijuana should be legal"—then quickly segues into why it shouldn't be.

"Marijuana is not a harmless drug. It is an addictive substance that interferes with relationships, health and productivity," said Barrett Duke, vice president for public policy and research with the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. Funnily, just replace "Marijuana" with "Porn," and organizations like Morality in Media the National Center on Sexual Exploitation have said exactly the same thing!

The other article, by Jim Burton, begins, "One Colorado 'church' is pushing for its mountain town of 1,500 to become the nation's first 'sanctuary' for 'therapeutic and spiritual users of cannabis.' Calling itself 'Closer to the Heart Ministry,' the so-called church in Nederland, Colo., celebrates cannabis—the plant that produces marijuana—as mankind's 'tree of life.' "

Closer to the Heart is hardly the first church (or religion) to make marijuana a sacrament. Some Hindus have used it as such since 2000 BC, and more recently, there's the Rastafarians, who've used it since at least the 1940s; the short-lived Neo-American Church, founded by "Chief Boo Hoo" Art Kleps, a Tim Leary associate, which held all psychedelics to be sacraments, as does the Temple of the True Inner Light; and the First Church of Cannabis, Inc. was officially recognized by the state of Indiana just this year, apparently because of that state's passage of a version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

But such distinctions were lost on Burton, who spent the rest of the article registering mainstream religious leaders' disapproval of pot use, recounting anti-pot myths like "stunted brain development" and lowered IQ scores, and condemning Colorado's legalization decision in part because, as Charlie Jones, pastor of Fellowship of the Rockies Church in Pueblo, said, "People have moved to Colorado because of the legalization of marijuana, and then they have stressed the food pantries and homeless shelters and things like that."

But there's no doubt that smoking or eating marijuana does relax most people, perhaps too much for whatever they have to do later—so welcome Canary, the new app for iPhones and iPads that "combines decades of research and experience, specialized mental and physical performance tests, and sophisticated analysis to accurately measure impairment due to alcohol, medication, fatigue and even the subtle impact of marijuana," a NORML press release noted.

"Canary is the first app to give consumers the scientific information they need to honestly and accurately evaluate their personal performance, privately, anytime, and anywhere," said NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre.

New lubricant manufacturer penetrates U.S. market and prepares to slide into global expansion

LÜB Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

Posted Aug 27th, 2015 02:05 PM

NEW YORK—LÜB, LLC, manufacturer of LÜB lubricants, has plenty to celebrate as it marks its one-year anniversary. Since launching in summer of 2014, LÜB has risen in popularity, receiving rave reviews across social media and 5-star real-user reviews on Amazon.com, as well as gaining shelf space with major U.S. retailers. This month, LÜB's founder Scott Cullens, graces the cover of Cybersocket magazine for the second time. (He was first featured on the leading LGBT tech-zine's December 2014 issue.)

ADVERTISEMENT


"I've been a fan of Cybersocket for many years," he said. "The timing of my second cover and feature article with them couldn't be a more perfect way to celebrate the one-year anniversary of LÜB. We have come a long way in just a short time, penetrating the U.S. market, and we're ready to slide into global expansion."

Cullens is no stranger to mainstream media attention. His construction company, Palm Pacific Construction, was recently featured on the cover of the Home + Design issue of Palm Springs Life magazine. He also has a high profile on social media due to his years as a fitness model and TV personality.

Additionally, he is the official spokesmodel for Australian swim & men's apparel brand Cocksox. His worldwide following commingled with LÜB's level of quality and cross=market appeal creates an auspicious mix of elements to bolster LÜB's quest to become a household staple around the world.

"We spent a long time perfecting our blend before bringing LÜB to market in 2014," Cullens continued. "Every day men and women of all sexual orientations are discovering how LÜB can enhance their love lives. The real user reviews and feedback we receive from Amazon and across our social media platforms don't lie; LÜB is formulated to outperform other brands and is unlike any other lubricant on the market. The only question is Do You Want to Be Loved?"

LÜB is a proprietary blend of four ingredients, all pure-grade silicones, giving it an ideal consistency, viscosity and smoothness. It is free of any additives, dyes, perfumes or irritants. It will never get sticky or dry out because it doesn't break the skin barrier or absorb the way water-based lubricants do. For more information or to place an order, email info@lublube.com.

Bonnie Rotten Talks About Her Latest Productions

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Bonnie Rotten Talks About Her Latest Productions

Blessed with a magnetic personality that draws people in, Bonnie Rotten is much more than just a pretty face or perfect body. It’s the contradictions that make her persona intriguing. Of course, there’s her soft and pretty face contrasted by a body covered in edgy tattoos. She's a woman who’s traveled around the United States, Europe and Africa, yet she’s doesn’t drive a car. She’s sweet and warm to colleagues and fans, yet she’s a tough businesswoman who wants control of her own destiny.

ADVERTISEMENT


Where did it all begin? When she turned 18, Rotten started dancing back in her home state of Ohio. Just shy of her 19th birthday she did a handful of adult shoots for smaller companies like Dirty Diablos and Creampie.com—“little random things to get the feel of the industry,” Rotten said. But then came her big break with the New Sensations star showcase Meet Bonnie. That auspicious introduction led to her being a trophy girl at the 2013 AVN Awards Show, after which she won Female Performer of the Year in 2014.

Since then she’s started her own production company, done a deal for a toy line with pleasure product giant Pipedream Products, and been tapped to be a director in the Elegant Angel stable. In addition, Rotten now has a series of six titles being released directly by Juicy Entertainment, starting this week with Slutty Bikini Girls.

And that’s not all. By the time the 2016 AVN Awards Show rolls around, the 22-year-old star will be married and the mother of a brand-new baby.

Fans who follow Rotten on Twitter have seen hints of her new romance and impending motherhood. But the adult star hadn’t yet talked to reporters about her plans for the future.

Earlier this year Rotten met and fell in love with new beau Dennis DiSantis, and the romance barreled ahead with the same speed as her career.

Rotten’s new man was comfortable with her career, but something had changed for her.

“I loved performing—it was my heart and soul,” Rotten said. “You’ve watched my scenes—you know how much I enjoyed it. Once I met him, when I would do a scene it was not the same for me. I was calling him from the bathroom and I just felt really sad and awkward.”

Rotten firmly said that she never felt any external pressure to stop doing boy/girl scenes. “He never told me to stop performing. He’d say, ‘If you want to stop performing, then you stop performing. But I’m not going to tell you to.’ And I said, ‘Well, I kind of want you to tell me, because this is a hard decision for me to make.’”

But soon Rotten made her decision. “I said, ‘I think I just want to do girls.’ So I started doing girls, and we started trying to get pregnant—and three weeks later I was pregnant.”

Her fans will be relieved to know that they will still be able to see Rotten in movies that are in the pipeline. In addition to her scene with Riley Reid in Slutty Bikini Girls, there are boy/girl scenes in movies still to be released, among them Bonnie vs. Rocco (Evil Angel), Lock and Load (Digital Playground) and Sex Symbols 2 (Airerose Entertainment). But much of this year she has concentrated on directing.

“I think I’m going to shoot a couple more before January, but it’s just harder being on set because I’m very involved in every little thing that goes on. I shoot second camera; I’m making sure the photos are happening. I have a schedule by the minute of what’s going on. … Is this girl in make-up? Is this girl here? If this girl’s not here, then I have to stop everything and get on the phone and find out why she’s not here. … I always leave an hour’s worth of leeway at the end of the day because I know it’s going to get eaten up.”

Among her Elegant titles are Inked Squirt (her first), Busty Pin Ups (her favorite so far) and Young & Natural, with a box cover that features Keisha Grey, one of Rotten’s favorites. This celebration of natural beauties also features Karlee Grey, Whitney Westgate and Sydney Cole. And coming August 31 is Squirt in My Gape 4, starring Casey Calvert, Danica Dillon, Maddy O'Reilly, Mia Li, Ziggy Star and Selma Sins.

In September Bonnie Rotten unleashes Supersquirt 6, featuring Nina Elle, A.J. Applegate, Karla Kush, Marica Hase, Annie Cruz and Zoey Monroe, with Veronica Avluv on the cover—a performer truly worthy of the series title.

“This is a cover for my next movie for Elegant,” Rotten said, showing the Supersquirt 6 cover. “Veronica Avluv. I love her, I love her so much. She’s very fun and she’s very real and she has the best energy of any girl in the business.”

“And tomorrow I get the trailer for White Booty,” she said. “That one was fun. That is an all-interracial movie.… Anikka [Albrite] is in it—she is on the cover, which is awesome—and Maddy O’Reilly. Richelle Ryan—she’s really cool. I like her a lot—big football fan. A.J. Applegate—great little booty on her. I was happy about that one. It comes out in September.”

Juicy Entertainment salesperson Danny G. couldn’t be more thrilled to have exclusive distribution on six brand-new Bonnie Rotten productions. The first of the six titles, Slutty Bikini Girls, starts shipping August 26.

“Not only is she starring in the movie along with Riley Reid, she also produced and directed the title,” he said. “All of the six titles are directed by Bonnie. As hot as you know her as a performer, she has transferred that energy over to her directing style. These movies don’t fool around; they get right to the point. … Each scene is pushed to the limit.”

Slutty Bikini Girls features Rachael Madori, Paris Lincoln and Sophie Grace. Rotten mentioned that she also shot Rachael Madori again—that time with Toni Ribas for another Juicy movie that is coming out a little later in the fall that is titled Pretty Young and Tight.

As a director she looks for locations where she can “shoot a lot of things outside … I like to have a lot of light, natural light. And I look for uniqueness. I don’t want every single room to be white.”

When it comes to choosing female performers, Rotten said, “Obviously, I shoot girls with big names.” But she has her personal preferences. “I like girls who have pretty eyes—that’s one thing for me. I don’t really care for hair extensions or things like that. If a girl has a boob job or a butt job, that’s fine, but I like a more natural size. ... Personality is a big thing because I want to be able to enjoy my time with that girl being on set. I don’t want to have to tiptoe around a girl; I don’t want the girl to be a diva.”

What about the guys she chooses? “I’m not about all the guys having giant dicks.” Rotten said. “I always look for guys who have a great attitude. I don’t want to deal with divas, because guys can be almost bigger divas than girls.”

Getting specific, Rotten said, “Will Powers is one of my favorite guys to shoot. Will comes in, and he’s eating an apple with a smile on his face … He’s goofy, fun, a lovable guy. And he does a great scene. He doesn’t fuck up the cum shot, he doesn’t bust early, he’s not impotent or he can’t get it hard—he always does a great job, and I believe he’s very underrated. I love Will Powers. I would shoot him in every movie.”

As a director, Rotten has learned the importance of hiring a reliable male performer. “A girl can suck, and you can put her with a great performer like Manuel [Ferrara] or Toni [Ribas] or Ramon [Nomar]; they’re going to make it a great scene.”

She also mentioned on a conversation she had with Rocco Siffredi, with whom she recently made the movie Bonnie vs. Rocco. He had talked about how some male performers confuse being rough with being passionate. “I didn’t understand where he was coming from at the time,” she recalled. “He said, ‘You don’t have to smack a girl on the face to be passionate, to make the scene. You can look in a girl’s eyes and have that passion with her, and you can do a crazy scene with her, but you don’t have to beat her down.’ But I had to experience that and feel that for myself to really get what he was talking about. Then I started noticing it—that some guys use being rough as a copout.”

Asked about who inspires her behind the camera, Rotten said, “Mike Adriano was one of the first people who made me want to direct. We actually did a scene trade—I did a scene for him and he did a scene for me in Anal Candy Disco Chicks [a Mental Beauty title distributed by Girlfriends Films]. … I started talking to him in the beginning and said I had an interest in this and he said, ‘Keep working at it, keep doing your thing.’”

She also mentioned a predecessor at Elegant Angel. “I always enjoyed working with William H. because he’s such a nice guy, very soft-spoken. … He always has such beautiful, beautiful product in the end. And he did a lot of the squirt movies for Elegant back in the day, so that was something really cool for me to do the titles that he did before, because it was like I’m in one of my favorite director’s shoes right now.”

After her baby is born, Rotten said, “I’m just going to continue to direct and produce and be on the road for feature dancing. It’s crazy. I was traveling four times a month to do it. I was booked from January through to April of 2016.”

For now she’s had to cancel some of those gigs, but she’s already looking to get back on the road. “I’ve started booking for next year. I booked three jobs for April and June. It’s a lot of fun. You get to go out, go to a different town. I’m a foodie, so I love trying the local food, going to the local big spot.”

And most important, there’s the chance to meet fans. “It’s really cool—some guys will come with books, photo albums that they’ve been collecting photos for 10 years. Or some guys will come in with 20 DVDs for you to sign. You just have all these great fans in different areas. Some of these guys can’t make it to AVN. … So it’s cool to meet these people all over the country.”

She’ll also keep up her website. “I own my domain. I got that before I was even in the business. And another thing is, I got trademarked from the beginning—on everything. When you start a company, that’s very important.”

Rotten also went into detail about why she got into the business, and how she feels about that decision now. “I was stripping and doing all that stuff. I was in a very adult-oriented environment. And then I started doing fetish modeling—it was kind of like, I’m having all this sex, I get naked, what’s the difference? I’m going to try to excel, try to be big in this community where it’s celebrated rather than looked down on. I’m from Ohio, where somebody could be doing the exact same thing [privately], but you’re the slut for doing it. To be in a community where it’s embraced, and to be celebrated and to be able to do all these things, it was really cool.”

Also, practically speaking, given the fact that by age 17 she was heavily tattooed and hadn’t gotten her G.E.D., “It was either be a stripper or a model or work in fast food. It’s funny, because a lot of fast food restaurants wouldn’t even hire me because of my tattoos.… I’m not saying I was forced into a decision or forced into a choice, but all the things were stacked in favor of being in the adult industry.”

She continued, “People ask me, ‘Are you ashamed?’ I have nothing to be ashamed of. Is it going to be hard to explain to my child, once she’s old enough to understand what’s going on? Yes, it’s going to be hard to explain. But I’m going to do my best to show her that there are positives to our industry and to me doing what I did. Maybe don’t go down the same path … but if you did do it, I wouldn’t hate you and I wouldn’t shun you and I wouldn’t think less of you, because my family didn’t do that.”

Wicked Salutes Women's Equality Day With 'Girlfriends'

Casey Calvert and Scarlet Red star in Stormy Daniels' 'Girlfriends,' Wicked Passions' first lesbian love story

Wicked Salutes Women's Equality Day With 'Girlfriends'

Posted Aug 26th, 2015 05:00 PM

LOS ANGELES—Women's Equality Day commemorates August 26, 1920, the day the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified into law, granting women the right to vote. Fittingly, Wicked Pictures is saluting this historic legislative decision's 95th anniversary with the release of Girlfriends, an all-female drama which focuses on a self-actualized woman's success in finding love, happiness and fulfillment. The first lesbian love story in the Wicked Passions romance line, this new release was written and directed by Stormy Daniels.

In the story, small town girl Jamie (Casey Calvert) has made the difficult decision to tell her parents that she is in a same-sex relationship. Unfortunately, her family does not react well to the news and Jamie decides to go to Los Angeles to visit her best friend Sarah (Scarlet Red). Jamie is happy to discover California is far more accepting. Finally able to be happy and at peace, Jamie meets a woman named Pam. As things heat up between Jamie and Pam, Sarah begins acting strange. Is it because Sarah doesn't like Pam, or because she wants to be more than just "girlfriends?"

Co-starring A.J. Applegate, Sasha Heart, August Ames and Lily Cade, Girlfriends is the fourteenth title in the Wicked Passions franchise to be directed by Daniels, who is currently a Best Director (Features) nominee in the 2015 NightMoves Awards.

For his part, Wicked Pictures President and Owner Steve Orenstein couldn't be happier with what Stormy Daniels is doing with this acclaimed series. "We've received great responses to this line, and now, due to the requests from retailers and consumers, Stormy has created a lesbian Wicked Passions release written and shot in the same unique way as our heterosexual Passions titles. I believe fans, reviewers and consumers will all be very pleased with the results."

The high-end DVD release includes a 16×9 widescreen HD feature, three bonus sex scenes, a still gallery, motion menus, trailers and more. And it all comes encased in a stylish O-card showcasing Calvert and Red.

Daniels is currently putting the finishing touches on the most ambitious project of her career—a western. Co-produced by Wicked and Adam & Eve, Wanted features Daniels as well as Wicked contract stars Jessica Drake and Brad Armstrong, 2015 AVN Female Performer of the Year Anikka Albrite, XCritic.com Best Actress Allie Haze, AVN/XRCO award-winner Amber Rayne, AVN Hall of Fame performer Steven St. Croix, and Brendon Miller. It is scheduled to go on sale September 16.

Girlfriends is now in stores. For more, visit Wicked.com.

Really Useful Ltd and FakeHub.com Launch FakeCop.com

Really Useful Ltd and FakeHub.com Launch FakeCop.com

Posted Aug 26th, 2015 02:11 PM

PRAGUE/LONDON—Media production company Really Useful Ltd. has two separate network sites to showcase their amateur-reality brands, including FakeTaxi.com, PublicAgent.com, FakeAgent.com, under the all-encompassing FakeHub.com and their line of sensually-erotic brands, MassageRooms.com, Lesbea.com, etc. under SexyHub.com—and they're ready to announce the launch of FakeCop.com.

Really Useful Cash has created some of the top selling brands in the adult industry since their formation in January 2011, and in particular has carved out a name for itself among reality-porn fans with their top selling lines in FakeHub.com.

ADVERTISEMENT


“It started with FakeAgent where we worked on striking the right balance between being provocative but also making fun and friendly sex scenes, while maintaining an air of realism,” said Lew Thomas, Head of Production at Really Useful Ltd.. “Each of our Fake-series brands has been a huge success for us, the most recent was FakeHospital.com which launched in February 2014, and since then members have been asking for another new line in the series. FakeCop is one we've been developing since mid-2014 and was an idea we've had since we first created FakeTaxi, so hopefully it will click with the fans in the same way FakeTaxi did."

FakeCop.com is a tongue-in-cheek new brand playing with reality TV conventions, capitalizing on the success of FakeTaxi which is shot in the UK and filmed entirely in a London black cab. This time we have a fake cop, armed with multiple hidden cameras on his uniform and in his 'un-marked police car' as he prowls the streets of London day and night, capturing on camera events that have been described as thrilling, hilariously authentic and sexy. The action takes place in a variety of locations and it's all made to look very real, which seems to be part of the appeal for users.

FakeCop.com will launch as part of the FakeHub.com network which means members not only get regular updates from this new brand, but also daily updates from the likes of FakeTaxi, FemaleAgent, FakeHospital, FakeAgent, PublicAgent and FakeAgentUK.

 “We are extremely excited about this launch," said JT, owner of ReallyUsefulCash.com. "It marks the first new brand in our Fake-series for some time and it's one that we had in mind for many years. We have a clear set of goals to develop both FakeHub.com and SexyHub.com with new brands over the coming years, FakeCop.com is the first of many more to come. We've already started production work on another line for FakeHub.com, and pre-production on our next SexyHub.com brand which I think is going to be huge.”

African Fly Now Available to Distributors, Retailers

Posted Aug 26th, 2015 12:56 PM

SILVER SPRING, Md.—African Fly, a food-based formula designed to improve sexual performance in men and women, is now available to distributors and retailers in the adult sector.

“We’ve been selling African Fly through our website and in stores in the Washington, D.C., area for the past 15 years,” said Brian Ayers, CEO of Genesis Bio Tech. Inc., the manufacturer of African Fly. “After consisten requests for in-store purchases from Florida to Australia and beyond, wefelt it was time to broaden our reach.”

ADVERTISEMENT


In women, the body’s natural testosterone-boosting ingredients of African Fly can increase sexual urges and vaginal lubrication as well as intensify orgasms or help produce multiple orgasms. 

In men, African Fly can boost sex drive, create harder and longer lasting erections, and help men recover more quickly after sex. 

“Unlike testosterone medications, which can have adverse side effects, African Fly gives bodies the nutrition they need to make more testosterone,” Ayers says. “Because it’s taken in a liquid form, it can be absorbed into the blood stream to increase and optimize blood flow in the genitals and increase sex drive for both men and women in as quickly as an hour.”

African Fly can also increase sensitivity to touch, sexual stamina and give both men and women extra energy to explore. 

The ingredients in African Fly include cinnamon, cola nut, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, yohimbe, sarsaparilla root and damiana. 

African Fly is a high-value product (MSRP $55), which retailers can count on for repeat sales. One 4-ounce bottle of African Fly lasts about one month. 

“African Fly is unlike any other oral sexual supplement or enhancement product on the market,” Ayers says.  “The African Fly website has several short videos and informational pages, which distributor reps, salespeople and customer service agents can use to help customers understand how African Fly works and how to use it. A few minutes of product education will also help your sales staff boost your store’s profitability.”

African Fly is in stock and available for immediate shipping. 

For more information about African Fly, visit http://africanfly.com  or contact Brian Ayers at bayers@africanfly.com or (240) 646-4766.

FSC Applauds The Landmark Cal/OSHA Ruling on Condoms

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

FSC Applauds The Landmark Cal/OSHA Ruling on Condoms

Posted Aug 26th, 2015 12:31 PM

CANOGA PARK, Calif.The following statement has been issued by FSC and is for immediate publication. For questions, please contact diane@freespeechcoalition.com.

Yesterday, Treasure Island Media announced that their six-year investigation with Cal/OSHA over the use of condoms had concluded with a whopping $685 fine for the company.

In a press release, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which initiated the investigation, tried to save face by calling it a "landmark ruling," and it was—for the adult industry. AHF had hoped that Cal/OSHA would consider the lack of condoms on an adult set to be a serious fine, and had pushed for fines in the tens of thousands of dollars. Instead, Cal/OSHA rebuked them.

ADVERTISEMENT


For the past several years, Michael Weinstein has been siphoning non-profit money for a campaign of harassment, while communities in need suffer. In doing so, AHF has effectively become a lobbying organization, spending political money profligately while many people in L.A .and across the country die for lack of treatment. So we ask again: why is Weinstein focusing on so many millions of dollars to patrol the country’s roughly 1,500 adult film workers when there is not an issue with HIV in adult film?

For those in the adult industry, there is reason to celebrate. The $685 dollar fine—the same fine that a company might get for not having a full stocked first aid kit—is precedent-setting. Weinstein is free to bring more and more cases against adult companies, but the outcome is already known.

Cal/OSHA resources should be used to investigate actual workplace safety regulations brought by workers, not imagined violations of some moralist's fevered mind. He is wasting state resources and preventing state workers from helping those in need.

Treasure Island should be applauded for their tenacity, and attorney Karen Tynan should be congratulated on a case well argued. We look forward to more such "landmark" rulings.

RadarOnline Claims Josh Duggar, Danica Dillion Had Affair

RadarOnline Claims Josh Duggar, Danica Dillion Had Affair

LOS ANGELES—The feeding frenzy following the data dump by hackers of the website AshleyMadison.com continues, with many zeroing in former TLC reality TV star Josh Duggar.

After details of his accounts on the website were released last week, the internet went crazy condemning him for being a hypocrite (which he admitted to) and searching for other instances of his hypocrisy. Now, RadarOnline.com claims that Duggar might have had a physical affair with adult performer Danica Dillon.

ADVERTISEMENT


An unnamed source claiming to be close with Dillon told the celebrity gossip site that once news broke about Duggar’s “secret Facebook page” where he “liked” her, the performer reportedly told friends they had an affair.

The source told the site there were plenty of hints and intimations, but there’s been no physical proof provided.

As for Dillon, who entered the industry in 2009, she hasn’t made any public statement about the claims.

When contacted by AVN, Dillon referred all questions to her management, who had not resounded at the time the story was posted.

AIDS Healthcare Reacts to Treasure Island Media Appeals Decision

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

AIDS Healthcare Reacts to Treasure Island Media Appeals Decision

LOS ANGELES—AIDS Healthcare Foundation, in what it termed "a ruling that should give the adult industry pause," yesterday applauded the Cal/OSHA Appeals Board decision to reduce fines levied against Treasure Island Media (TIM) from $21,440 to $3,170, of which only $1,300 was directly related to concerns about disease transmission on sets.

ADVERTISEMENT


Specifically, the company was fined $410 for "Failure to develop a written Illness and Injury Prevention Program, failure to conduct health and safety training for hazards, including prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, and failure to conduct health and safety inspections for hazards in the workplace"; $205 for "Use of bleach to clean up biological waste including OPIM ["Other Potentially Infectious Materials"] from work surfaces; failure to develop a written hazard communication program"; and $685 for "Failure to establish, implement and maintain an effective exposure control plan where employees are exposed to semen and OPIM due to work activities during filming and set cleaning," which description is accompanied by a note reading, "ALJ [Administrative Law Judge] sustained violation; Board reduced citation to General and reduced penalty."

Of particular note is the fact that the Board reduced the fine for "Failure to observe universal precautions during production of films, failure to institute engineering and work practice controls to eliminate or minimize contact with blood & semen including, but not limited to, the use of barrier protection such as condoms" from $9,000 to zero, with the notation, "ALJ sustained violation. Penalty is vacated as single citation is needed for Citation 2 and 3." (One might note: That's the reason appeals boards exist: because trial court, administrative and other judges who conduct hearings don't always get it right.)

But for AHF, the Appeals Decision is still a big win for mandatory barrier protections (which they've stopped referring to as "mandatory condoms" because the Health Code to which they continually refer clearly states that many other barriers like gloves, goggles and face shields would be required—if applicable to adult content production), in part because the decision states that the Health Code's Section 5193 does apply to the industry, and that adult content performers are considered by the Board to be employees rather than independent contractors. Both of those points will undoubtedly be litigated in court when Vivid Entertainment's lawsuit against Los Angeles County's Measure B finally comes to trial.

The Appeals Decision brings to an end, however, the six year long battle that began with the complaint which AHF made to Cal/OSHA regarding Treasure Island's production 1000 Load Fuck, which featured one HIV-positive actor receiving, as AHF described it, "the previously collected semen of over 1,000 men into one of his body orifices."

AHF attributes the Appeals Decision's reduced fines to the fact that, "Cal/OSHA was forced to interpret and judge the Treasure Island Media case appeal under older federal and state standards in effect at the time. OSHA had to consider the appeal through the lens of 'substantial probability' of infection rather than the newer, current standard: a 'realistic possibility' of infection. Judging standards didn’t change until after the TIM citation and appeal back in 2010," adding that, "The 'Realistic possibility' judging standard in effect today only requires evidence of exposure (e.g., ejaculation on mucous membranes) to be considered a 'serious' violation, and is the standard going forward for all complaints." [Emphasis in original]

"If this ruling is a 'triumph,' as Treasure Island claims, they certainly have an odd view of victory,” AHF president Michael Weinstein claimed. "This ruling confirms that OSHA regulations apply to porn sets and that adult film performers are employees covered by health and safety regulations. We also now know that the criteria for judging OSHA violations going forward is under the newer 'realistic possibility' of infection, which will make it easier to cite companies and protect adult film workers."

Fortunately, just because Michael Weinstein says something doesn't make it true—or accurate.

Quasar echoed Britney’s sentiments, stating, "I always know when I hire talent from Nexxxt Level, I will always get a performer a cut above the rest and both Kleio Valentien and Britney Amber were exactly that. Both girls brought so much fire and heat to their respective scenes that the sound of smoke detectors can be heard in the background.”

Kleio Valentien was equally excited about working on the set of Anal Intervention: "Getting a call to work for Mike Quasar and Zero Tolerance is like winning a day pass for Disneyland. I have the best times on his sets and to add anal just made it even better then I hoped."

Treasure Island Media Triumphs in Cal/OSHA Condom Trial

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Lack of condoms not a serious violation, panel says in three-judge ruling

Treasure Island Media Triumphs in Cal/OSHA Condom Trial

SAN FRANCISCO—A three-person panel has ruled that Treasure Island Media’s failure to use a condom in a 2009 adult shoot was not a “serious violation” of Cal/OSHA regulations, and assessed the company a mere $685—a reduction of 96 percent from its original fine of $18,000. The ruling is reportedly precedent-setting.

Attorney Karen Tynan, who tried the case for Treasure Island and performed the appellate work, called the ruling a game changer for the adult industry, and a sharp rebuke of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which brought the complaint.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to the Cal/OSHA "Decision After Reconsideration," three issues were involved in the hearings, which began in 2009:

1) "Were Employer's employees exposed to blood and/or 'other potentially infectious materials' within the meaning of section 5193?"

2) "Were the performers involved in the production(s) at issue Employer's employees?"

3) "Were the violations properly classified as serious?"

The decision also recounts Treasure Island's arguments for why the complaints filed by AIDS Healthcare and upheld in part by Cal/OSHA should be dismissed on appeal: "Employer asserts (1) that the inspectors' testimony was based on uncorroborated hearsay; (2) that there was no evidence of exposure to blood or OPIM; (3) that even if there were violations, there is no evidence that they occurred within the period of the statute of limitations; (4) that the performers were independent contractors, not employees; (5) that section 5193 does not apply to the adult film industry; (6) that even if there were violations as alleged, the violations were not shown to be serious; (7) that the ALJ [Administrative Law Judge] erred in admitting Division's Exhibit 30 into evidence; and (8) that because the ALJ's Decision was issued after the period stated in Labor Code section 6608, the Board acted in excess of its powers and therefore the Division did not meet its burden of proof to establish the safety orders applied."

Regarding those objections, the Appeals Board did agree that, "For purposes of our analysis of the performers' status as employees we here give Employer the benefit of the doubt and assume without deciding that the record does not establish that its acknowledged employees were exposed to blood or OPIM."

More importantly, however, the Appeals Board also found that whatever violations of section 5193 may have taken place during the shooting of the movie in question (which used only HIV-positive performers), the performers' exposure was not "serious."

"The record, however, does not include any evidence of what the probability of contracting any sexually transmitted disease is, assuming one is exposed to them through sexual contact or contact with semen or OPIM. On this record, therefore, we cannot say that, even assuming the alleged violations caused exposure to bloodborne pathogens, it is more likely than not that the exposed employees would contract an illness. And, since we cannot assume the existence of a fact which is not in evidence, we cannot sustain the serious classification."

Therefore, although the three members of the Appeals Board did deny the petition for reconsideration, the lowering of the alleged offense(s) from "serious" to "general" caused a significant reduction in the fine the agency assessed against the production company, as noted in the charts attached to the Appeals Decision.

“For the past six years, AIDS Healthcare Foundation has wasted Cal/OSHA’s time, resources and patience for the regulatory equivalent of a missing Band-Aid. This is a huge win for Treasure Island and the adult industry,” Tynan said. “Hopefully, this is also a win for Cal/OSHA, since AHF no longer has much credibility in bringing these cases. They’ve been wasting millions of taxpayer dollars a year that could be going to actual prevention.”

Over the past decade, AIDS Healthcare Foundation has filed numerous complaints against adult companies for failure to use condoms in adult film, often without any interest expressed by the performers involved in the shoot. Treasure Island’s film, which involved not only condomless sex, but also a turkey baster and a two-gallon jar of semen, was an extreme test case for the Cal/OSHA regs. Still, the panel ruled the lack of condoms was only a minor infraction.

“We’re very pleased with the Cal/OSHA ruling,” said Matt Mason, general manager of Treasure Island Media. “At the end of the day, the agency was just doing their job in responding to a complaint. I suspect they’re as annoyed with AIDS Healthcare Foundation as we are.”

Treasure Island founder Paul Morris defied AHF by funding the defense with revenue from another controversial release, The 1000 Load Fuck.

Mason, Tynan and Morris resisted calls from Cal/OSHA to settle the complaints early. 

“Paul Morris funded a trial and allocated the resources to give us this success,” said Tynan.  “After a four-day trial against two Cal/OSHA attorneys and two inspectors on the case, for the penalty to be $685 is just terrific.”

“This was a matter of principle, not money,” said Mason. “This was an attack on our rights, and the rights of our models. Michael Weinstein may not like what we do, but he has no business telling us how to do it.”

It is unclear whether Treasure Island Media or its principals will be able to recover attorney fees for expenses connected to defending against AHF's complaint.
