NEW YORK — The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance today announced that it is seeking to hear from adult entertainment industry workers who have been denied services or have had their bank account closed by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.

The alliance, which works to affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right, said it is demanding the bank and two working partners — Southwest Airlines and Amtrak — to halt "what is clearly discrimination against the adult entertainment industry." 

"At Woodhull, we strongly believe that adult entertainment is a legal business, protected by the First Amendment," the group said on its website. "It involves the expression of the fundamental right to sexual expression. Neither Chase Bank, nor the federal government, have the right to discriminate against adult industry performers or businesses."

Woodhull is seeking communication from affected performers, vendors, manufacturers, producers, among others, who have denied services or had your account close by Chase or any other bank to email chase@woodhullalliance.org.

"Be sure to include copies of relevant documents, including any correspondence with the bank, your position in the adult industry, and your contact information," Woodhull said. "Feel free to redact any sensitive information like bank account numbers or social security numbers. Our goal is to call attention to this reprehensible conduct and explore any available remedies for affected customers."

The controversy over Chase accounts and porn stars began last month after porn star Teagan Presley told media outlets, including XBIZ, that Chase closed her account because the bank considered her "high risk."

Today, a source deep within Chase told XBIZ that the bank isn't specifically closing accounts of porn stars because of their occupation.
