LAS VEGAS — The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has filed its first shot in Nevada against an adult entertainment company.

Late Wednesday, the organization said it filed a complaint last week with Nevada OSHA against Kink.com over a recent filming that may have exposed performers to infectious disease by exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials.

In the complaint, officials from AHF said that a June 8 shoot for the studio’s HogTied.com film, “Hogtied Whores,” broke labor rules.

San Francisco-based Kink last month said that it had moved some production to Las Vegas and has opened an office there, as well.

“Under the guise of his various Kink and Kink.com adult film businesses and brands, owner Peter Acworth thinks he and his companies can simply ignore the federal OSHA bloodborne pathogens standard with regard to required condom use in his adult film productions shot in Nevada,” said Michael Weinstein, president of the AHF.

The AHF complaint against Kink isn’t the first against the company or other studios in the biz for allegedly violating OSHA rules, but it is the first filed with Nevada authorities.

In addition, AHF has sponsored several measures to regulate the adult entertainment industry through ordinances mandating condoms and testing for performers.

Measure B, and related laws, are in effect in the city and county of Los Angeles and parts of Ventura County.

The organization also sponsored AB 1576, a similar statewide measure that is pending in the state's Legislature.

Acworth told XBIZ that a "full statement" from the company over AHF's allegations will be disseminated on Thursday.
