CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition through its Adult Production Health and Safety Services unit has appointed its APHSS.org Advisory Committee. 

The performer representatives are Jessica Drake, Bobbi Starr, Danny Wylde and Steve Cruz.

Producer representatives are Dan O’Connell (Girlfriends Films) and Steven Scarborough (Hot House Entertainment). Performer Nina Hartley will serve as educational advisor, and attorney Karen Tynan has been appointed as legal advisor.

The FSC said the appointees have agreed to a six-month term, as the APHSS.org program is launched and in its initial stages. The APHSS.org website went live on Monday.

The responsibilities of committee members are to provide insight and feedback on policies and operation of the APHSS.org, the FSC said. They also will help develop resources for the program to benefit performers and producers.

“This committee is the first of its kind, to allow industry members to have a part in creating a system of self-regulation to uphold health & safety standards for adult productions,” FSC Membership/Communications Director Joanne Cachapero said. “FSC, as administrators of APHSS.org, are thrilled to have the input of performers, producers, agents, as well as legal and medical experts to build a solid program to benefit the whole industry.

“The members of the committee are well-known in the adult community and active in production,” she said. “We could not hope for a better start to APHSS.org.”

Performers, producers and agents can go to the site to sign up for database accounts and view a listing of testing facilities, she said.

As the database becomes stocked with performer data, performers and producers will be able to go there and verify work availability status.

“We are starting from scratch with this database, so we need the support of the industry to sign up for this program and we ask for everyone to be patient as we ramp up,” she said.

“[I]t is important to be pro-active about self-regulation. It may cost the performers an extra $50 a year, but with that investment, you are supporting your own well-being and the business interests of the industry. So, we are grateful to the advisory committee members for volunteering to help with these efforts.”
