Adult Celebs Form Committee to Teach 'Porn 101'
LOS ANGELES — A team of adult’s leading performers has announced The Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC), an organization formed to coach would-be porn stars.
The group’s inaugural video, “Porn 101” stars Jessica Drake, James Deen, Chanel Preston, Stoya and Nina Hartley. A number of other stars also appear.
“Every year, thousands of would-be stars and starlets head to Porn Valley to seek fame and fortune. And every year, those same thousands find out that work as a sexual freelancer is not as easy as it seems. There is no prep course in adult entertainment, no internships, no online tutorials. Until now,” the creators said.
The new video breaks down the basics of being a porn star. The stars discuss everything from personal limits and healthcare to tax preparation and testing procedures.
"After [L.A. Condom Ordinance] Measure B was passed it became clear that the performers needed their own voice,” Hartley told the BDSM news site Kinky.com. "We needed a group of performers, by performers and for performers ... The business is changing greatly and performers are poised to take a greater interest and power in their own care. Adult entertainers are more likely to make a career of it than ever before, and APAC grows out of that.”
The video, which was posted to the APAC site earlier this week, is the group's first attempt at a major initiative. Hartley said that in the future, the group would focus on performer rights, health care and performer pride.
