  1. It seemed the basic message the industry was sending was that if the bill passes then they’re going to move… not all that much about health and/or safety of performers, but mainly about the threats of leaving CA and how they don’t really feel like moving… in other words, not the world’s greatest argument when discussing the health and safety of other human beings…

  3. @Isadore Hall— Thank you, sir! You are a true American HERO! Even though today’s active performers are dumber than a bag of hammers, you saw fit to ensure they don’t spread their super STD infections to the community at large by calling for regulation designed to stop their ‘slave lords’ (producers) from being able to get away with murder (literally) and calling it “the risk they (the performers) take!” I applaud your efforts and you will be in my prayers tonite!!!

  4. Hey its the last of the great former male pornstars on here.
    Nick East. You never had to use Viagra and or caverject like
    those gay boys doing your former job now.
    Keep up the good work and remember
    JOJOuslove and I love you. Try to get them to
    get rid and regulate the whoring and escorting that is going on too.
