LOS ANGELES — In order to adapt to the changing needs of the talent it shoots every week, Cherry Pimps has made two major health-related announcements and one scheduling addition.
As exclusive producers of weekly cam shows for Streamate, Cherry Pimps regularly shoots five days a week both recorded and live web shows. In light of recent developments within the adult entertainment industry, Cherry Pimps has altered its production schedule to include only solo shows since the Syphilis outbreak.
This schedule will remain in effect through the month of September to allow all talent to be tested and cleared before Cherry Pimps returns to its usual full slate of boy/girl shoots.
“We felt it was important to allow all performers to get fully tested and be 100 percent safe before we get back to what we do best,” Cherry Pimps’ owner Avalanche said. “We also wanted to continue to provide quality content for our loyal members and fans. The solo shows have been a successful solution to a very difficult situation. Some production companies returned to full production this week, however we felt that returning our shows to full hardcore at this point would be risky. It is our hope that by maintaining strict testing procedures, Cherry Pimps and Streamate can assure that the talent will be 100 percent safe and healthy.”
Cherry Pimps has also added an additional live show, increasing its weekly schedule to six shoots.
Cherry Pimps said that when production does return to normal, it will be joining several other industry leaders by requiring a 15 day test from all talent.
More frequent testing will help prevent further STD outbreaks and keep performers safe, the company said.
Understanding that this will increase the cost to work Cherry Pimps has pledged to add $30 to each booking to help offset those costs.
“Cherry Pimps and Streamate are committed to the health and welfare of our performers,” Avalanche said. “More frequent testing will go a long way towards preventing another health crisis.”
