CHATSWORTH, Calif. — The Guttmacher Institute was selected to receive a gift of $1000 from Girlfriends Films, on behalf of AVN Media Senior Editor and legal analyst, Mark Kernes. The donation to the Guttmacher Institute is the April selection for Girlfriends Films’ monthly charity program.

Past charities include Lambda Legal, Muscular Dystrophy Association, NPR, Cancer Research Institute, the American Red Cross, and more. The April donation choice by Kernes goes towards ensuring higher standards of sexual and reproductive health for all.

Girlfriends Films calls on its strong community of fans and followers to join Mark Kernes in helping those in need. Donations of all sizes may be made directly to the Guttmacher Institute at Web Link.

Kernes explained his selection of the Guttmacher Institute, saying, “In a world where the mass media go out of their way to spread misinformation about sexuality — particularly women's sexuality — there is one shining light consistently presenting the facts and statistics needed to counter the religio-conservatives: The Guttmacher Institute."

Kernes continued, "As a journalist, I can't say how many times I've been confronted with some right-wing politician or preacher spouting suspicious factoids about anything having to do with sex, where I've logged onto the Guttmacher website and found scientific data to debunk whatever myth they're trying to create or spread this week.

"Girlfriends Films is to be congratulated for being willing to ‘step up to the plate’ and encourage and help other members of the adult community make this country a better place to live in with its charitable donations. Bravo!”

“The first couple days of each month is my favorite time,” said Girlfriends Films Vice President Moose. “It is then we find out what charity was picked to receive a donation from our charity program. The choice says a lot about the person who selected it, and we are always happy to give performers and leaders in this industry a chance to promote their favorite charity and give back to the community.”

Girlfriends Films has a long history of charitable contributions, having donated over $20,000 in 2011. Last year the company recently restructured its charity program from an annual end-of-year donation to an ongoing, monthly program. 

Any Girlfriends Films performers interested in participating may apply by emailing the following information to PR@GirlfriendsFilms.com : name, AIP charity of choice, reason(s) for selecting the charity. Chosen performers will be asked to submit a personal photo depicting the performer engaged with the charity, the charity’s mission, or a similar charitable act. The photo will be used for promotional purposes.
