As more states open up and people return to work, companies are looking for guidance on how to keep workers safe from infection. Some experts suggest looking to what may seem an unlikely model: the adult film industry. It survived a different pandemic — an outbreak of H. The adult film industry uses a nationwide program called PASS, for Performer Availability Screening Services , that requires performers to be tested every 14 days for H. The suggestion of using the adult film industry as a model was reported by Stat News in May. The adult film industry, which has been largely shut down since March 15, just released guidelines on how to get back to work.
New Adult Film Star Database to Launch for Casting
After a controversial Web site briefing private medical records of adult film stars was folded, a new site dedicated to helping adult film producers and directors find actors will be launched. Private information from AIM, was leaked to a Web site called "Pornwikileaks" that identified porn stars and their health conditions, which included their test results for STDs. Services offered through AIM's website have been on a hiatus since April, according to its website. The new database to be released as early as September will allow filmmakers of pornography to browse through a list of adult film actors available for work in order to cast, though it will not display any test results. Performers within the adult film industry must receive mandated STD testing every 30 days in order to be eligible to star in a film, since many films do not include the usage of condoms. Activists have held countless rallies across the country for the usage of condoms in the adult film industry.
Lessons on Coronavirus Testing From the Adult Film Industry
Adult Film Database AFD is an English-language adult website database that attempts to keep records of all pornographic movies and adult film stars. This includes filmographies, partial biographies, reviews, labeled and categorized adult film stills, as well as a regularly updated adult industry blog which features the latest news about adult performers, movies, directors, studios , web site updates and sundry adult news from around the world. It was created in under the name Sodomite by a college student. In its name was changed to the AdultFilmDatabase. Today, the AdultFilmDatabase.
It replaces a database operated by AIM Medical Associates, which was shut down in May after the site was hacked and performers' private medical information was leaked online. Proponents say the new database will safeguard performers' sexual health as well as their privacy. But critics say it promotes unsafe sex. Weinstein's organization has lobbied for mandatory condom use in adult films despite pushback from performers who favor mandatory routine testing. The adult entertainment industry has had its share of sexual health scares.
