Did you know the majority of porn performers also engage in ILLEGAL PROSTITUTION with their “fans”? True fact! Read the full article quoted below. Additionally, sometimes they HAVE to do it just to keep doing porn, because their agent or company forces them to! One more reason of many why the porn industry is very corrupt and should NOT be supported.

When Milano first entered the industry, an adult performer openly escorting was relatively rare: “Escorts were considered dirty, bottom of the barrel. Nobody was open to admitting they did it.” Yet by the time she returned less than a decade later, the industry had changed drastically: the talent pool was larger, the number of available roles much smaller, and the advent of digital piracy had driven performers’ rates down. Escorting, or “working private,” has become one of the most lucrative ways for adult performers to supplement their flagging incomes, with many earning up to thousands of dollars for a single booking.

Because escorting is illegal in the state of California, the trend is rarely openly discussed outside industry circles. Yet the rise of escorting is something of an open secret in the San Fernando Valley, where an estimated 90 percent of porn is shot. “If you look at the escort sites, pretty much every porn star is on there,” the adult performer Houston told me a few months ago. “I think pretty much everyone is doing it now.”

While the consensus is that most agencies will turn a blind eye to escorting, Kross says that some agents will actively do double-duty, booking their talent for shoots as well as for privates. “They’ll lock girls into a contract and literally hold them hostage if they don’t agree to escort for them,” she says.

NEW HARM STORY! Ex porn performer Jessie Rogers shares how she got into porn, how harmful it was and why she left! ~~~~~~~~~~~~

JESSIE’S STORY:

I got into porn the day after my 18th birthday. Here’s how it happened…

A week before I turned 18, I was just scanning around the “jobs” section on Craigslist, not even looking for porn. I found an ad in the TV/film/video section that said “MAKE $20,000 – $30,000 A MONTH MODELING.” In the description it said nothing about porn or video work, they simply asked people to e-mail them a photo. Once I sent the agency a photo of myself, they got back to me instantly, asking when I could go see them. All they mentioned at the time was that they were looking for people to do “Playboy-style nudes.”

Once I got to the office to speak to them in person, we talked for hours, and the woman working there finally told me that she “basically booked girls for porn.” Then she handed me a sheet to circle the things that I was okay with doing. The only thing I circled was “solo.” She looked at it and said, “Well, the problem with this is that you won’t be able to make as much money as I proposed to you.” So I went on and circled “b/g” and “g/g,” which means boy/girl (me and a boy), and girl/girl (me and another girl). I didn’t circle anything else because I never intended to do anything else.

Every time I got interviewed by a company in the porn industry, my answers to the question “Why porn?” stayed relatively the same: “I love sex, so why not?” or “Getting paid for something I do anyway sounded like a dream job.” Etc. etc. The truth is that what draws people in is the quick money, especially for young girls coming out of high school. They may have some vague idea of what porn is like from having seen some of it, but in reality they have no clue what it actually is like to do it, until they get too deep into it.

That’s what happened to me. As embarrassed as I am to admit this now, I will humble myself and say that I was very naive when I first started in porn, and I believed all the things that people in the industry told me were true. I was so drawn to the money that I let myself believe all the lies that people fed me. I even believed my own lies that I told myself.

I am 20 years old now, and I retired from porn just a few months after I turned 19, so I didn’t do it for very long. However, it was long enough for me to finally see through all of the lies, and for the true colors of the “adult industry” to be exposed to me. Porn is not empowering, neither is it safe. But it did take quite a lot for me to face this and accept it. All of my plans to only do what I first agreed to changed after just a few months in the industry, after which I ended up jaded, disassociated, and brainwashed.

NO, “Belle”/”Lauren,” doing porn is NOT “empowering” for women, nor is it a good way to pay for your college tuition! And anti-porn feminists are NOT the problem as to why doing porn is harmful for women!

I had scholarships to other schools where I would’ve had to pay nothing. But I chose Duke because I thought it would be a great place for me—I thought that I belonged here.”

Check out the details below!

[L.A. Weekly] Condoms are mandatory for porn production in California, an administrative law judge has ruled.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has been fighting for laws that explicitly require prophylactic use in adult film, last night called the ruling by a California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) judge a “landmark decision” that affirms “barrier protection” applies specifically to the porn business.

AHF spokesman Ged Kenslea told us that one of the most important aspects of the ruling is its affirmation that performers are indeed employees due protection under under workplace safety rules. The group has long argued that federal law prohibiting exposure to bloodborne pathogens such as sperm at the workplace applies to California’s adult performers.

The industry has said that porn stars are very part-time workers who paid per “scene” as independent contractors.

The ruling by Judge Mary Droyovage wrote that, without condoms, there is “substantial probability that employees would suffer serious exposure resulting in serious physical harm or death if violation occurred.”
