Here Is A Letter Sent To Producers By L.A. County…Is This The So Called OSHA Letter?

Dear Sir or Madam:

The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the recommendations of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (LAC DHS) on workplace practices to prevent transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD) among adult film industry performers.

The recommendations include consistent condom use, routine periodic STD/HIV screening, hepatitis A and B vaccination, and worker education. While condoms cannot be considered 100% effective in preventing disease transmission, the correct and consistent use of latex condoms will greatly reduce the risk of HIV and STD transmission. Condoms used in conjunction with the other recommended measures will significantly reduce occupational risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV or another STD

Based on our investigation of the March 2004 adult film industry HIV outbreak in Los Angeles, we recommend that you enact the following: (1) condom use for all penetrativesexual acts, including oral sex; (2) frequent medical monitoring, that includes routine screening for HIV and other STD’s; (3) vaccination of non-immune performers for hepatitis A and B; and (4) ongoing education and training for all adult film industry performers, producers and directors on work-related exposure and risk of acquisition of
HIV and STD.

The LAC DHS is currently working with Cal/OSHA, the California STD and AIDSprograms, National Institutes for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop a model exposure control plan. When this has been finalized we will make it available to the adult film industry. In the meantime, the LAC DHS is available to provide technical assistance to the industry. Please contact Robert Kim-Farley, MD, MPH, Director, Communicable Disease Control and Prevention at (213) 989-7161.

Jonathan E. Fielding, M.D., M.P.H.
Director of Public Health and Health Officer.

Is There Respect In The After Life:

Rodney Dangerfield has been in a coma for weeks, he died this morning (Tues) during heart surgery at age 82.

Check your dead pool, If You had Russ Meyer, Janet Leigh, and Rodney Dangerfield you won.

Here Comes The Shakeout In Gonzo:

Apparently Cal-OSHA has sent a letter around to porn companies. It promises fines to companies who do not employ the use of condoms on their sets, including for oral scenes. Few gonzo companies could survive shooting this way, This will likely weed out the wannabes shooting on shoestring budgets and living check to check. IF and thats a big if, Cal OSHA enforces this it’s gonna hit hard in Porn Valley.

But there is a good side to this, the companies that do adapt and over come, the ones that survive will get a better price for their product because the current glut should ease, shifting it from a buyers market to a sellers market.

The internet porners are now poised to strike again, and it could be a coup de grace, even though porners are making noise about moving to another state, they won’t and whatever state they move to could be worse. Add to that any noise about going underground, is just that, noise. Porn Valley is a small place and heavy fines on underground shooters will flush them out quick. That’s the disadvantage of a centralized location.

Internet porners on the other hand aren’t centralized. It’s all going to boil down to whether or not Cal-OSHA is serious.

Is a new Sheriff coming to town?
