FSC and Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS.org) would like to show appreciation to all that attended the APHSS.org meeting held on July 10, which addressed issues around performer testing, as well as updated information on Los Angeles’ pending mandatory condom legislation in the city and county.

Special thanks to XBIZ Magazine, XBIZ owner Alec Helmy and his crew, that provided resources which enabled the meeting to be broadcast via live stream on industry forum XBIZ.net. More than 30 industry members that were unable to attend in-person watched the proceedings online.

To everyone that took time out of their schedules to attend, we thank you. Some industry members that attended included: Nina Hartley & Ira Levine; Wicked’s Brad Armstrong; Vivid’s Marci Hirsch & Shylar Cobi; Girlfriends Pictures’ Dan O’Connell & Moose; Adam & Eve’s Bruce Whitney; New Sensations Renae Englhart; Alia Janine; Sean Michaels; Kimberly Kane; Nate Liquor; Sarah Shevon; Miles Long; Will Jarvis; director Kevin Moore; All Media Play’s Scott David; AVN’s Theo Sapoutzis & Mark Kernes; XBIZ’s Dan Miller; AINews’ Steve Nelson; blogger Julie Meadows; sociologist Chauntelle Tibbals, among others. Members of agents’ organization LATATA including Chris from 101 Modeling, Type 9 Models’ Kevin O’Neal and ATMLA’s Shy Love also were present, among other attendees.

The meeting was a huge success. Complicated issues were discussed in an open forum by industry stakeholders, which brought more clarity to the current situation involving performer testing and the condom ordinance/County ballot initiative. Speakers at the meeting included Kink.com founder Peter Acworth; infectious disease expert Dr. Miao (Cutting Edge Testing); labor attorney Karen Tynan; industry attorney Allan Gelbard; and FSC’s Executive Director Diane Duke.

In related news: The same day of the APHSS meeting, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors voted to continue their discussion of approval of the L.A. County condom ballot initiative for the county ballot in November.

Going forward, FSC and APHSS.org will continue to keep an open dialogue with industry stakeholders, concerning these important issues. If you need more information on FSC, APHSS.org, performer testing or the condom ordinance, please contact joanne@freespeechcoalition.com.

Please, remember to support FSC and the APHSS.org performer-testing program – we fight the good fight on your behalf, but we can’t do it without YOU! Thank you.
