Ex Porn Performer on Condoms: “We are Human Beings that Deserve Respect” (Via AIDS Healthcare Foundation)

A former porn performer has shared an anonymous letter that exposes how callously the industry abuses the health and safety of their performers. Check out the disturbing details below, which explains why this one female performer left porn, and why she now advocates for mandatory condom use!

[AIDS HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION] — LOS ANGELES (October 3, 2013) On the heels of widespread news reports of several recent HIV infections found in several adult film performers working in the porn industry, a former adult performer wrote an eloquent ‘To Whom It May Concern’ letter via AHF in which the performer eloquently urges her former adult film colleagues and producers to comply with all condom use and worker safety laws and regulations. The letter, dated September 19, 2013, was sent to the community via AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s (AHF) Headquarters in Hollywood. Below is the text:

Via AHF

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

I have been following the HIV crisis in the porn industry for some time now, mainly due to the fact I was a performer in the adult industry from 2011 to 2012. While I was never directly spoken down to or disrespected, there were many aspects of the adult industry that I experienced to be corrupt in my short time as a performer that caused me to stop filming any scenes in the industry.

Please do not release my name, address or any other personal information as I have a few dear friends who work in the industry and I do not want them to know I am writing this letter. I also have a family that means a lot more to me than being known for speaking on this matter. I would love to come out publicly to aid in your efforts promoting condoms in the industry, but it would not be in my family’s or my best interest to do so. I hope you understand. I want to do my best to help.

I performed in 5 scenes, both prior and after the passing of Measure B.

I performed in scenes where the director admitted they did not pull proper permits to film. This came up because I was to sign new paperwork regarding measure B and my “rights.” I can say right now there are many shoots going on where permits in LA County are not being filed for. I remember a report a few months ago that stated the number of permits in LA County for adult filming dropped drastically. They are still shooting. That is why this is so important to me. The industry thinks it can self regulate but it cannot. They think they are invisible, when they are really being ignorant and reckless with the health and well being of those who are part of the team who put food on their table and money in their wallets. The talent. Half of the people on set are drunk, under the influence of drugs, or are there with ulterior motives. For instance, to receive oral sex on set. Actually, this is one of the deciding factors on whether you get booked again.

The fact the moratorium is going to be lifted makes me sick and uneasy. I’m sure you are familiar with how many times talent can shoot and because of that, the amount of performers who have been exposed is almost unfathomable.
