The creators of the ‘Sexy Baby’ documentary on porn’s harms to teens have now premiered the ‘Hot Girls Wanted’ documentary’ — about the exploitative world of teen amateur porn:

    “The disturbing world of amateur pornography has been laid bare by a new documentary called ‘Hot Girls Wanted,’ which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday.

    The insightful look at the world of pornography shows just how easy it is for teenagers, in particular, to get caught up in a sex trade that promises big bucks and fame.

    But in a revealing peek into the billion dollar industry, documentary filmmakers exposed how professionally produced films are being made to look like home movies. …

    It showed how Craigslist ads which promised free flights to Miami bring in a constant stream of would-be porn stars.
    During the film, Riley, a 23-year-old ‘agent’ hosts half a dozen young women eager to enter the industry at his Miami home.

    He says casually: ‘Every day, another girl turns 18.’

    But the brutal world of pornography only gives girls aged 18- to 21 a career span that typically lasts just three months, due to high turnover.

    Tressa, an 18-year-old girl featured in the film, admits she was attracted to porn as a way to escape her Texas hometown.”

——————–

Ouch. That’s a sad state of affairs. 😦

And by the way, if porn is so great and “empowering,” why is the career-span of these young women only three months?? Very telling…

“Sexy Baby” was a very good documentary and we’re looking forward to seeing and sharing this new effort by these excellent filmmakers who are doing such a great job exposing the harms of pornography. Go anti-porn team! 🙂

~ Here’s an excellent article on the “Hot Girls Wanted” film and another important documentary that just debuted at Sundance about epidemic rape on college campuses:

    “We did actually start this film by going to college campuses and talking to frat boys, to get some background research, and on our sort of checklist of things we wanted to film was this amateur porn world, because all these boys are watching this porn… and it is no mistake that their behavior is aggressive, and that there are all these rapes on college campuses, because this is where it’s starting. This is what they’re watching.”

Exactly! Thanks to the filmmakers for telling it like it is and helping to educate the masses!

Here’s a powerful, heartbreaking, but inspirational story of ex porn performer “Sunset Thomas” (@SunsetThomas) — who was in the porn industry for decades, (she made over 200 films), and who also worked for years in Nevada’s legal brothels.

Now known by her real name Diane, this article shares her story, describing the horrific toll that the sex industry took on her because of how she was so used and abused by the men in her life. (Mostly personally, but sometimes professionally, as those worlds were often connected.) It also shares how incredibly difficult it was for Diane to leave the sex trade.

    “Thomas explained to a reporter how many of the men in her life poached off her decades of earnings, first in the porn industry and later in brothels that capitalized off her high profile adult industry name. She said despite the fact she spent over two decades in the profession – her name and face known throughout the world – she has little to show in the way of savings.

    “I’m finally out,” Thomas said. “I was tired of the stress and people forcing me to do things I don’t want to do. I’m tired of people trying to pressure me to keep doing it when I don’t have to do it. I want to live a normal life like everyone else.” […]

    “The conditions at the brothel where she was working were prison-like with two week, 24/7 lockdowns,” Dr. Martin said. “It was an existence for her that became more and more unbearable, mentally and physically. She wanted to leave, but the money she was making for them was an incentive for them to keep her in it.” […]

    Stanley [Diane’s mother] said it was difficult to hear her daughter say over and over again she didn’t want to live that kind of life anymore.

    “I heard her cry and say she did not want to do these things,” Stanley said. “But no one would help, until Robert (Martin). She and Robert had been friends for a long time and when she called and asked him for help he went and got her, but she was nearly dead.”

    Stanley was referring to Thomas’ poor state of health when Martin retrieved her from Las Vegas, where she had gone into hiding after being beaten and injured by someone she declined to immediately identify. After rescuing Thomas from a bad situation, Dr. Martin nursed her back to health, Thomas’ mother said.”

NOTE: For some reason the reporter inserted a random short section in the middle of the article that shares a bishop’s opinion on women leaving the sex industry. While everyone is free to practice any faith or none as they choose, Diane has written on her Twitter account that she is spiritual and not religious, so she’s not following the religious aspects of the path that this bishop advises, who is someone who is not connected to Diane.

And to be clear, women in the sex industry are *exploited* by pimps, johns, husbands and boyfriends, etc. So those who are committing the greatest transgressions (“sins”, per the bishop) are not the women in prostitution, who are usually just trying desperately to survive, but the (almost always) MALE EXPLOITERS. It is these men — not the women they’ve exploited — who should be seeking “redemption”, by coming clean and making amends, etc. The bishop does provide some other solid advice, though, about exited women finding a new set of friends for support, who aren’t in the sex industry.

In any case, we wish Diane all the best with whatever path she chooses to take from here on out that helps her to heal and prosper in her new and healthier life.

Go Diane! Well done on your new life! We support you and are grateful for you sharing your story to inform, help, and inspire others! 🙂

GOOD NEWS! The porn industry lost their court appeal regarding condom use, and the L.A. County law will be upheld. 🙂

    Making adult-film performers wear condoms during porn production does not violate freedom of expression but instead protects public health and workers on set, a federal appeals court concluded Monday morning.

    The 30-page ruling largely discounted what had long been an argument by the adult-film industry: That Measure B, a voter-approved law that requires condoms be used on all porn shoots in Los Angeles County, compromises an actor’s artistic expression and ruins the fantasy aspect of pornography.

———-

Yay team! 🙂 Read more details in the article below:

http://www.dailynews.com/social-affairs/20141215/porn-condom-law-doesnt-violate-freedom-of-artistic-expression-judges-say

Here is more info and background on this issue:

http://thinkprogress.org/health/2014/12/16/3604306/condoms-porn-ninth-circuit/

Another important development along these lines is the latest report from the California Department of Public Health:

Occupational HIV Transmission in the Adult Entertainment Film Industry

    What should be done in light of this investigation?

    • Correct and consistent use of condoms is known to reduce the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Adult entertainment film actors should use condoms, and film producers should require on-set condom use by actors. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) has determined that employers are required to furnish and ensure the use of condoms in the production of adult films at no cost to the actors.

Yay!

Interesting news! The UK is no longer allowing certain types of abusive and BDSM pornography to be made or sold.

The list includes some life threatening acts, such as strangulation, facesitting and fisting. Also: “spanking beyond a gentle level, full bondage and restraint (in conjunction with a gag and all four limbs restrained).” Finally, abusive language during sex, depictions of non-consensual sex, and urinating, if “performed onto another person or consumed.”

———-

Wow! This new law is limited because people in the UK can still watch all of the porn with the above content that is made in other counties. But still, it seems they are trying to do what they can to stop the worst abuses in pornography that they have control over.

What do you all think of this? Please let us know. Thanks! 🙂

GOOD NEWS! The UK porn business is declining due to regulation like age-verification. Hopefully the U.S. will follow! ~~~

    “The industry is imploding,” the director of a pay-per-view adult television channel says. “If there was less free porn around, my business would be stronger.” Jerry Barnett, an industry lobbyist, and founder of Sex and Censorship, thinks the UK business “has shrunk by over 90%” in the past seven years. […]

    “The tubes gave the typical surfer all the free content he would like. That has cannibalised the monetisation of all adult content. I blame it on hubris. We thought it was always going to be good, that no one would mess with our business model. We believed that people would still pay for something they could get for free.” He believes there has been an 80% drop in the number of UK businesses. “Regulation has killed it a bit too. The age-verification is killing us,” he says.

This excellent article also exposes how many young women REGRET the porn they make, and how callous pornographers are about the women begging to get the porn they were in removed:

    “Every two or three weeks we get a call from one of our performers, mainly in the Czech Republic, asking us to remove something. They say ‘My boyfriend will split up with me’ or ‘He has taken my baby away’. Some of them are really, really distressed. It is a horrible part … it is an upsetting part [of the job]. There is nothing we can do. The girls wanted to shoot, we pay them a lot of money … ” he says, flatly.

    “We tell them it is going on the internet. We don’t pretend it is for our own consumption. But once a video is on the internet, there is nothing we can do. We have to say to the girls: ‘I’m sorry’. They say: ‘I’ll pay you.’ But there is nothing we can do.”

His response of course is a lie. They COULD accept a fee to remove the content. They’re clearly just too greedy to do so.

Anyway, feel free to bring up this fact to any porn watchers you know — that no matter how enthusiastic a woman in porn looks, (because she is ACTING and being PAID), that it’s entirely likely that she regrets that porn being shot, and would do anything to get it removed. And that anyone watching it is just contributing to the misery and regret of these women.

The porn industry still won’t protect the health and safety of performers, so ex performers and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation have protested recently in Los Angeles and Oakland and held a press conference in L.A.

Their goals are to get Cal/OSHA to clarify their standards regarding condom use in porn, and to get condoms in porn legislation for California added to the 2016 Presidential election ballot. Protesters include our good friend Cameron:

    “…The bureaucratic process means that more performers will be at risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases on film sites, said Cameron Adams, who went by the name Cameron Bay when she was a performer. Adams said she contracted HIV last year while shooting at San Francisco-based Kink Studios.

    “I’m fighting for the rights and health of performers out there so they don’t end up like me, and this is the only way we’re going to get to them,” said Adams. She met with Cal/OSHA officials during the protest to hand them a letter asking they release their standards immediately.”

Britney Spears may be a mega-wealthy famous global pop star, but even *her* relationship can be ruined by porn. (Or so it was recently reported…) ~~ See below…

    [Mirror] – “David Lucado ‘hooked up’ with Latina adult movie star Cali Lee back in August, according to TMZ.

    According to various porn sites Cali is aged 24 and just 5 ft tall.

    She has been in the industry since 2009 and is believed to have starred in just twenty scenes throughout her career, which apparently is not much for a porn star.

    … Earlier this year it was reported that Britney’s dad Jamie Spears bought the tape that allegedly shows David Lucado getting close to another woman behind the singer’s back, who has now being revealed as Cali after meeting her in a bar near Brit’s home.

    The star, 32, reportedly called time on her 18 month relationship after discovering the video was being shopped around Hollywood, claims TMZ.

    It’s thought Jamie Spears, who has been in control of her finances after a judge granted him a conservatorship following her breakdown in 2008, bought it for a substantial sum to make sure it never becomes public before showing it to her.”

———-

We feel for Britney and for all women whose partners are unfaithful to them because of porn fueling them to act out, whether it’s with non-industry women, or with the fantasy women in porn — in real life, via a webcam while performers are being paid by the minute, (which is increasingly more common), or just by fantasizing about and masturbating to “regular” porn on the Internet. (Yes, we consider that to be cheating, unless both partners know about it and agree to it happening and not being a violation of their fidelity to each other in their relationship.)
