Contrary to the misleading commercials, the last HIV outbreak in the adult industry was 12 years ago.
First, if you live in California, you already know what to do. If you have friends and relatives in the state, you know what you should be doing: talk to them to make sure they understand the truth, not the hyperbole.
Michael Weinstein is fighting to make a profit. Adult performers are fighting for more than their livelihood, they are fighting for their lives.
Here are just two of the ways Prop 60 would endanger the lives of all adult performers
1) By deputizing every California resident as part of the condom police, this leaves all adult performers susceptible to stalkers and others with negative intentions to find out personal information about them. “It immediately becomes part of the public record, and there isn’t any real way to prevent that,” The Sword co-founder Mike Stabile told Heavy.com.
2) Michael Weinstein professes Prop 60 will protect performers. The reality is the health screenings that would be mandated will place them at a higher risk in the following ways:
A) Currently, adult performers are tested free of charge every two weeks via the Performer Availability Scheduling Services (PASS) System. Prop 60 would reduce that to only before they are about to make a film.
B) PASS’s protocol includes the Aptima HIV-1RNA Qualitative Assay Test which shows infections as early as 7-10 days. But in the HIV Antibodies test that would be prescribed by Weinstein under Prop 60; antibodies show after 22 or more days.
