" FSC has been working with Cal-OSHA compliance experts, adult industry stakeholders and the Cal-OSHA board of directors to develop industry-appropriate workplace safety regulations for adult production sets. "

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) since 2009, has waged a campaign against adult industry production companies in an effort to legislate mandatory condom use on adult production sets. Imagine our surprise when this story appeared on gay industry blog TheSword.com yesterday, alleging that an AHF-owned Out of the Closet resale shop in Wilton Manors, FL was openly selling used gay bareback titles, presumably with revenue from those sales going to fund AHF’s various projects.

Former performer Ryan Dixon (aka Kameron Scott), who is HIVpositive, was working as a cashier at the Wilton Manors store when he discovered the titles for sale there. His story appears on TheSword.com, along with exerpts from his letter of resignation and photos of the titles allegedly taken at the Out of the Closet store. When Dixon confronted his manager at the store about the bareback movies offered for sale, he claims his manager’s response was, “Who cares?”

Well, we thought AHF did.

Ironically, AHF’s legal counsel Brian Chase was at a “Condoms in the Adult Industry” seminar yesterday when this story broke. The panel was held at UCLA, hosted by UCLA’s Reproductive Health Interest Group, Queers for Public Health, and Law Students for Reproductive Justice. The little-publicized but “opento-the-public” seminar featured a panel of gay industry members, as well as representatives from various health organizations, voicing their support of mandated condom use on adult sets.

FSC has been working with Cal-OSHA compliance experts, adult industry stakeholders and the Cal-OSHA board of directors to develop industry-appropriate workplace safety regulations for adult production sets.

The next CalOSHA meeting to address regulation for adult sets is schedule for June 7 at 10 a.m. at the CalTrans Building, 100 S. Main St. in downtown Los Angeles.
