Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS.org) is proud to announce performer testing for industry members in the Bay Area, in partnership with local nonprofit clinic St. James Infirmary.

The announcement follows a months-long pilot program at the clinic, in which performers for Kink.com were tested regularly.

“St James has a great program that has successfully served their community for years. Adapting our protocols to their testing environment was seamless and we know that our performers will get the respect quality of care they deserve,” FSC Executive Director Diane Duke said.

Performer testing is offered at St. James on every other Monday, from 11am – 4pm, and most test results are returned within 1-3 days. The next day that testing will be available at St. James on Monday, June 18.

St. James Infirmary is a nonprofit healthcare provider for sex workers, as well as other groups, and has been serving clients since 1999 with a variety of services, including STI testing, peer counseling and various outreach programs for sex workers. Their important work has improved the lives of countless patients, in a nonjudgmental environment. The clinic is located at 1372 Mission St., in San Francisco.

“St. James Infirmary is excited to extend our peer-based, client-centered services to adult entertainment performers. This collaboration is the result of years of relationship building with the adult entertainment industry, and we look forward to continuing to provide this service to performers,” said St. James Infirmary Programs Director Stephany Ashley.

APHSS.org is administered by Free Speech Coalition, the adult industry trade association. The program, which was launched in 2011, promotes and protects policies for performer safety and upholds industry self-regulation for STI exposure protocols.
