FSC Responds to Complaint Filed by AHF Against Immoral Productions

Free Speech Coalition (FSC) denounces actions taken by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) as another misguided attempt to monopolize public health policy by demonizing adult industry businesses
At a press conference today, AHF announced that it has filed a complaint against adult production company Immoral Productions. In response to the latest developments involving AHF’s relentless attacks on the adult industry, FSC CEO Diane Duke has issued the following statement:
“There hasn’t been an on set transmission of HIV since 2004 – nationwide. Adult film industry protocols are highly effective, which is why it is so preposterous that AHF has spent millions on a problem that doesn’t exist. Moreover, AHF has yet to bring forth performers who are not on their payroll and now, an ‘anonymous’ letter? Countless adult film performers have come out against AHF’s crusade as detrimental to their health and their livelihood,” Duke said.
“The bottom line is that AHF’s efforts will only diminish performer safety, drive jobs out of LA and California and spend valuable tax dollars on a non-issue,” Duke added.
As the adult industry trade association, FSC has opposed AHF’s special interest campaign for barrier protection use in adult productions since 2007.
In 2010, after a lawsuit brought by AHF delivered a crippling financial blow to the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare (AIM) clinic, which had been the primary source of healthcare services for industry performers. At that time, FSC stepped in to uphold industry-appropriate standards and protocols for production safety and developed the APHSS.org database program, to oversee performer STD testing.
In 2012, after an estimated $6 million dollars in campaign expenditures by AHF, county voters passed the Los Angeles ‘Safer Sex’ Ordinance for Adult Productions (aka Measure B) by a margin of 57% to 43%. Language on the ballot scarcely stated to voters the proposed barrier protection use, which includes condoms, dental dams, goggles and gloves. Soon after the election, Vivid Entertainment and two performer co-plaintiffs filed suit against the County of Los Angeles, in an effort to strike down the regulation. The case is ongoing.
AHF’s anti-adult industry attempts continue with Assembly Bill 332, which was to be introduced in committee today in Sacramento. The bill has been tabled by the Arts & Entertainment committee, but was handed over to the Labor Committee for further consideration.
FSC will continue to oppose AB 332 and the Los Angeles ordinance as unconstitutional and a burden on both adult industry and California taxpayers. If you would like to find out more about the Los Angeles ordinance, AB 332, or how YOU can help fight AHF’s big money, special interest campaign, contact info@freespeechcoalition.com and follow us @FSCArmy.




AHF Files Complaint Against Porno Dan

AHF Blasts L.A. Adult Film Biz for Not Complying With Measure B
 

By Rhett Pardon
Tuesday, Mar 19, 2013    Text size:    
       
LOS ANGELES — The AIDS Healthcare Foundation on Tuesday blasted Los Angeles adult film studios for not complying with Measure B, calling out the top-billed porn companies and Immoral Productions, a streaming site and DVD producer that has become the group’s first target.

Last night, the AHF, which sponsored Measure B’s passage, said it filed the first complaint under the new Los Angeles County porn-condom law against Immoral Productions because it received an anonymous letter alleging that Immoral Productions was producing condom-less movies.

“Immoral Productions is producing adult-themed content wherein the actors are engaging in vaginal and anal penetrative acts without the use of condoms,” the AHF said in a letter to the county’s Public Health director, Jonathan Fielding.

Today, at a press conference, AHF President Michael Weinstein charged that Immoral Productions is not the only studio that allegedly isn’t following Measure B.

"Look at Vivid, Hustler and many other companies," Weinstein said. "They have said publicly they’re not going to obey the law and use condoms."

Weinstein said that because the industry has not put its two feet into the measure, "this is something that is coming to a head" because it has "festered over 10 years."

The AHF is urging the county to take action over the Immoral Productions complaint within 30 days.

"We’ve seen nothing to how [the county is] going to enforce the ordinance," Weinstein said."We are challenging the county to take action."

Weinstein said that he had been paying close attention to the "adult blogosphere" for reaction to the voter-passed county ordinance, and that he hasn’t been pleased since most studios are "thumbing their nose" at it.

Immoral Productions, Weinstein said, has been especially egregious with recent condom-less shoots that are outlawed with Measure B.

It was a "willful act by Immoral Productions to apply for a permit knowing they wouldn’t comply," he said. "This studio received a provisional health permit and then went on the blogosphere, championing the permit."

According to Weinstein, the AHF received an anonymous letter from a "knowledgeable" person who had "access to the set." "This tip is not someone who was paid," he claimed.

The AHF then reviewed videos on ImmoralLive.com. "We checked it out and we found it as a valid," Weinstein said. "It’s not hard to verify [when and where] films were shot. They are streaming all of the time."

The AHF’s Mark McGrath, who leads research and policy for the group, said that the first complaint will be a test for county leaders.

"The question is: Will the count fulfill the wishes of voters," he queried. "There is a law on the book."

Weinstein said that the AHF is hopeful that county officials will take action against Immoral Productions, including fines that they say could reach $1,000 and possibly a six-month jail sentence.

But, he noted, that the county is not required to respond to the complaint.




EBT Cards USed For Strip Clubs

Comments (1)

NL- So people getting free money can use it at strip clubs instead of to feed their children. Brilliant!

http://www.ynot.com/content/118716-fla-eyes-law-ban-use-welfare-adult-entertainment.html

Electronic benefits, or EBT, cards look and perform much like prepaid credit cards. In Florida, the cards are administered by the Department of Children and Families and are intended to be used to purchase food and medical care.

HB 701, introduced by State Rep. Jimmie Smith [R-Inverness], is designed to comply with a section of the federal Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012. Under the federal law, by 2014 states receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families must enact and implement “policies and practices as necessary to prevent assistance provided under the State program funded under this part from being used in any electronic benefit transfer transaction in any liquor store; any casino, gambling casino, or gaming establishment; or any retail establishment which provides adult-oriented entertainment in which performers disrobe or perform in an unclothed state for entertainment.”

Not coincidentally, an investigative news report aired by Action News Jacksonville in April 2012 revealed Floridians using their EBT cards to withdraw cash at ATMs in strip clubs, bars and casinos. Currently, Florida does not track how or where assistance dollars are spent.

“We have no ability,” Florida Department of Children and Families spokesman Joe Follick told Action News during the report. “We have no laws in which to say ‘you can’t use your card here, here or here.’”

State Sen. Andy Gardiner [R-Orlando] introduced companion legislation in the Senate earlier this month, for the same reasons Smith said he introduced HB 701. Both bills are supported by the Association of Club Executives, the trade organization for adult nightclubs in the U.S.

“This is Florida legislation we can support,” said Angelina Spencer, president of the Washington, DC-based lobbying firm Empowerment Enterprises Ltd., which represents ACE. “To ask our lobbyists to oppose this legislation is political suicide.”




Paul Fishbeing Now Into Adult TV Programming

New Television Network Launched to
Provide Consumer News, Entertainment, Documentaries
& Talk Shows About the Adult Industry
 
Former AVN Owners Launch X3Sixty Network
with Programming for Cable, International,
Web & Broadcast Outlets
 
 
March 18, 2013—Los Angeles, Calif.—Bringing with them over 45 years of combined industry experience, AVN founder Paul Fishbein and former AVN CEO Darren Roberts have announced the launch of the X3Sixty Network. With a growing library of high definition programs, X3Sixty provides a slate of monthly infotainment programs to cable systems within the United States and Central Europe and is currently available on-demand in over eight million households.
 
 “The way people enjoy their entertainment has changed,” Fishbein said. “X3Sixty brings unique programming about the adult industry and its personalities to viewers in a format that is familiar to this generation and accessible to everyone.”  
 
The X3Sixty Network features the flagship show Inside Adult, a documentary series titled The Making Of… and talk show Seven Minutes in Heaven with Lexi Belle. The profile show, Up Close, and exclusive segments from sexual enhancement and pleasure products series Outside the Box, hosted by noted sex educator Sunny Megatron, round out the lineup. All of the programs are intended to carry a TVMA rating and are designed to enhance the viewer’s knowledge of the adult entertainment industry without competing with the explicit content already offered to consumers.
 
Inside Adult, hosted by adult film star Chanel Preston, is a 30-minute monthly news and entertainment video magazine, which takes its viewers on a journey backstage into the world of the adult entertainment. The program features exclusive interviews, behind the scenes coverage, award shows, red carpet premiers, news and industry gossip. “People have called this the adult version of Entertainment Tonight,” Roberts said. “No one has ever commercially presented this side of the industry before, and we believe X3Sixty will make an enormous impact.”
 
X3Sixty Network programs can be viewed for free on the official X3Sixty website: http://www.x3sixty.com. To experience the most recent episode of its flagship show, Inside Adult, featuring Chanel Preston, go directly to http://www.x3sixty.com/videos/47/adult-insider-10.html.
 
 “We have committed fully to our broadcast partners with respect to the programming exclusivity period, so you may experience a delay on current programs availability,” Fishbein notes.  The site, however, launches with over 50 exclusive programs, with additional content to be added weekly.
 




Condom Bill In CA Legislature Committee

Comments (32)

CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

ASSEMBLY BILL    No. 332

Introduced  by  Assembly Member Hall

February 13, 2013

An act to add Section 6720 to the Labor Code, relating to employment.

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

AB 332, as introduced, Hall. Occupational safety and health: adult films.
The California Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1973 establishes certain safety and other responsibilities of employers and employees. Violations of the act under certain circumstances are a crime.
This bill would require an employer engaged in the production of an adult film to adopt prescribed practices and procedures to protect employees from exposure to, and infection by, sexually transmitted diseases, including engineering and work practice controls, an exposure control plan, hepatitis B vaccinations, medical monitoring, and information and training on health and safety. The bill would define terms for those purposes. The bill would require the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board to adopt emergency regulations to implement these provisions by July 1, 2014. Because a violation of the act would be a crime under certain circumstances, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program by creating a new crime.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
DIGEST KEY

Vote: majority   Appropriation: no   Fiscal Committee: yes   Local Program: yes 
BILL TEXT

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1. Section 6720 is added to the Labor Code, to read:
6720. (a) The Legislature finds and declares that the protection of workers in the adult film industry is the responsibility of multiple layers of government, with the department being responsible for worker safety and the county being responsible for protecting the public health. Therefore, this section shall not be construed to prohibit a city, county, or city and county from implementing a local ordinance regulating the adult film industry if the local ordinance is consistent with this section.
(b) For purposes of this section, the following definitions shall apply:
(1) “Adult film” means the production of any film, video, multimedia, or other recorded representation of sexual intercourse for the sexual stimulation of the viewer that may involve exposure to bloodborne pathogens or other potentially infectious materials.
(2) “Employee” means a person who is an employee, independent contractor, or unpaid individual, regardless of whether the person is shown in the adult film, who performs a penetrative sexual act or an act for the sexual stimulation of the viewer that involves exposure to bloodborne pathogens or other potentially infectious materials.
(3) “Employer” means a company, partnership, corporation, or individual engaged in the production of an adult film. There shall be a rebuttable presumption that the name on the material for commercial distribution is the employer unless there is evidence to the contrary as demonstrated through contractual or employment records.
(4) “Sexually transmitted disease” or “STD” means any infection commonly spread by sexual conduct, including, but not limited to, HIV/AIDS, gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, hepatitis, genital human papillomavirus infection, and genital herpes.
(c) An employer shall maintain engineering and work practice controls sufficient to protect employees from exposure to blood and any potentially infectious materials. Engineering and work practice controls shall include, but are not limited to, the following:
(1) Simulation of sex acts using acting, production, and postproduction techniques.
(2) Provision of and required use of condoms and other protective barriers whenever acts of vaginal or anal intercourse are filmed.
(3) The provision of condom-safe water-based or silicone-based lubricants to facilitate the use of condoms.
(4) Plastic and other disposable materials to clean up sets.
(5) Sharps containers for disposal of any blades, wires, or broken glass.
(d) An employer shall maintain an exposure control plan in accordance with Section 5193 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations. An employer shall not be required to comply with any provision related to establishing and maintaining a sharps injury log.
(e) An employer shall make available the hepatitis B vaccination for any employee engaged in the production of adult films, at the employer’s expense.
(f) An employer shall designate a custodian of records for purposes of this section. A copy of the original production shall be retained by the custodian of records.
(g) An employer shall pay the costs of required medical monitoring such as STD testing and keep confidential employee records.
(h) (1) An employer shall adopt, implement, maintain, and update, as required, a written health and safety program approved by the department and that meets the requirements of the Injury and Illness Prevention Program and the bloodborne pathogens standard, described, respectively, in Sections 3203 and 5193 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations.
(2) An employer shall provide department-approved information and training on health and safety to employees at the employer’s expense. The training program shall be provided in accordance with Section 5193 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations. The training requirements of this subdivision may be satisfied by proof that the employee has received appropriate training at another workplace or from an appropriate third party approved by the department in the prior 12 months.
(i) By July 1, 2014, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board shall adopt emergency regulations to implement this section in accordance with the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code).
(j) This section shall not be construed to require condoms, barriers, or other personal protective equipment to be visible in the final product of an adult film.

SEC. 2. No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIIIB of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIIIB of the California Constitution.




Sex Doll Virgin?

NL- She doesnt look that hot to me! lol AND you have to give her back when you are done with her?

Sex Doll’s Virginity Sparks Online Bidding War

From Ynot.com

YNOT – The dating scene in Brazil must be tough.

As promotion for the first international convention of inflatable dolls, which took place March 9-13 in São Paulo, sex shop Sexônico mounted an online auction of Brazil’s first lifelike sex doll. The winning bid at midnight March 31 will have the honor of deflowering Valentina, created by U.S. company RealDoll.

Bidding opened at $5,000. At noon March 14, the high bid stood at $105,100.

Sexônico claims Valentina has state-of-the-art skin that mimics a real woman’s down to the wrinkles when she’s soaking wet.

“She has green eyes, fleshy lips, full breasts and a body that inspires envy in all women,” according to the description on Sexônico’s website.

Because no woman — real or otherwise — should be expected to provide something for nothing, the auction winner also will receive a prize package designed to help him wine and dine the object of his affection before the ultimate conquest. The package includes an all-expenses-paid trip to and from the Brazilian capital, a night in the presidential suite at Hotel Swing, a candlelit dinner with French champagne, a rose-petal-scented bath for two, lingerie for Valentina and a digital camera for capturing the romantic getaway.

Valentina is not the first Brazilian to seek fame and fortune by placing her pristine lady bits on the auction block. In October 2012, an online auction for 20-year-old Catarina Migliorini’s alleged virginity drew a winning bid of $780,000 and sparked international controversy. Migliorini insisted she intended to donate as much as 90 percent of the proceeds to charity, but the auction’s organizer — a first-time Australian filmmaker who engaged in a public spat with at least one of the medical professionals he said were backers of the project — claimed no knowledge of such a plan. Questions remain about whether Migliorini and the auction winner consummated their deal.

Migliorini later parlayed her notoriety into an appearance in Brazilian Playboy.

Whiteacre On Lubben’s Latest Effort

Comments (32)

OP/ED by Michael Whiteacre

George Orwell once advised that saints should always be presumed guilty until they are proven innocent. It is up to us – the masses who are commanded to kneel —  to ask questions, to apply logic, and use our discernment.

In her latest cash grab email blast, Shelley Lubben has found yet another shark to jump: stating that if you don’t donate to Pink Cross, porn performers will die because Pink Cross won’t be able to save them. That’s right, it’s not just souls that Shelley the self-styled “Rebel Prophet” saves, it’s lives as well! But she just needs some more folding cash to do it.

Lubben writes:


Ask us why porn stars keep leaving porn and are coming to Pink Cross for help? OUTREACH! OUTREACH! OUTREACH!

Pink Cross Foundation has reached out to and rescued more women out of porn than any other organization since 2007. In fact, due to our constant outreaches, we are experiencing a MASS EXODUS of women who desperately want out of porn.

WE WILL EMPTY THE PORN INDUSTRY IF WE KEEP GOING!!

Constant outreaches? Pink Cross showed up at one adult convention in 2012 (in San Francisco), and the upcoming AdultCon show in Los Angeles is its first of 2013 (and its first in Los Angeles in two years). Pink Cross also skipped the last two AEE shows in Las Vegas, which feature the greatest number of adult industry members who would supposedly benefit from her “outreach.” Mailing a gift box filled with donated brochures, a couple of pieces of candy, pink lip gloss and a cheap pink plastic bracelet is not outreach. Outreach is done face to face. Sending someone Pink Cross materials is called ADVERTISING, the same as when a bank gives you a free calendar or mouse pad; it’s meant to instill in the recipient a sense of goodwill about the bestower of the gift every time he or she sees it.

Mass Exodus?!? Who are these performers? Where did they go? Why hasn’t anyone missed them? Why isn’t there a plethora of recent (2012-2013) performers on Lubben’s websites?

Then, Lubben gets down to the nitty gritty:


We have a HUGE OUTREACH in two weeks at Adultcon in LA and we still need $2,000.00 to cover expenses. We give the BEST free gifts to make these girls feel loved, the BEST education on STDs, sex trafficking, risks of porn and more, the BEST outreach team made up of mostly ex porn stars who porn stars can ONLY relate to and we give the BEST love, prayer and ministry right there in the porn convention!

WE JUST NEED YOU TO DONATE ONE MORE TIME

According to Lubben, porn stars need to feel loved, and “can ONLY relate to” ex porn stars. This is because they are such a deficient subclass of human beings that reality and good sense cannot register in their feeble minds unless it is presented by another “recovered” member of their group wearing a pink uniform and handing them shiny pink objects.

Dear Lord, there are Colombian drug mules who don’t pull this much out of their ass.

Next, to back up her credentials, Lubben quotes four “testimonials” of ex-performers for whom, she asserts, “YOUR DONATIONS have directly been used to save their lives out of porn.”

First up is Jesse Jewels, a veteran of six scenes in 2005-2006 (a year or more before Lubben began her “outreach”), who implies she was without hope, but then…

The day I found the Pink Cross, I found hope. . . . They are so consistent in staying in touch. They remind me how much they care and how proud of me they are.  Nobody does that for girls who were in porn.

If it weren’t the pink cross I honestly don’t know if I would have had the self-esteem and courage to stay away from the sick industry of porn. But with the acceptance, the love and understanding I received from the Pink Cross I have to tell you I found the strength and courage within myself to never go back to that hell again.

Jewels left porn without having to be rescued by Lubben. There’s also no mention of any financial assistance, or other life resources from Pink Cross – they sent Jesse some Hallmark card-like greetings and maybe some pink lip gloss as part of Lubben’s plan “to make these girls feel loved.”

Next up is former BBW performer Jan Meza (aka Elizabeth Rollings), a Pink Cross stalwart who performed in a little over a dozen shoots (in 2007). As Jan exclaims in florid style:

Without Shelley Lubben I would not be here today! God sent her to rescue me from the destruction that the porn industry inflicted upon me. She is a refreshing serum of truth behind the scenes of the seedy and sinister shadows that exist in the porn industry, shadows that wait endlessly to consume women like me. Thank you Shelley, the world needs you and the Pink Cross Foundation.

The reader is left to wonder in what airplane hangars these ravenous shadows dwell, waiting endlessly to consume the stars of the Hot Sexy Plumpers video series.

As Meza indicates, she too left porn without having to be rescued by Lubben, and emails from 2009 between Lubben and ex-performer Sierra Sinn indicate that Pink Cross provided Meza nothing in terms of tangible assistance: “It’s real hard for Jan and her family right now,” Lubben wrote. “She has three kids and they live on military pay which is nothing, and they are donating plasma just to make it.”

The third “testimonial” is my favorite – not because of the quote atttributed to him, but due to its contributor’s self-description: “Ex Male Porn Star Latin King of Erotica Sal McKvey”

I thank God for the Pink Cross Foundation and to Shelley for all of their love, support and prayers. Thank you Shelley and I love your friendship. I am proud to say that I am an ex porn star thanks to the Pink Cross Foundation and especially to God and His Son Jesus Christ.

Sal, a former gay performer, is an interesting character.

When Lubben first announced Sal’s endorsement of Pink Cross last fall, he admitted to a friend that he’d been out of porn for two years, and his only job was “helping out” at the office of a Los Angeles area church. At that time, however, Sal’s twitter account still retained mentions of “private shows,” and his Twitter and Facebook both featured pics of him in lascivious poses. Sal was often featured in full make-up and dressed (unconvincingly) as a woman — and in fact some of the close-up pics on his Facebook profile were actually stolen shots of female porn star Mercedes Ashley! After Lubben was ribbed about all this online, Sal’s social media accounts were suddenly scrubbed.

Sal also left porn without having to be rescued by Lubben. So, what does Sal say he received from Lubben? Love, support and prayers – no mention of Lubben “rescuing” him out of porn or of having provided any financial assistance or valuable resources. She cheered him on in the recovery he undertook on his own.

The final testimonial in Lubben’s fundraising email comes from a woman identified as “Maxielle aka Genevieve.” She writes:

The only hope I ever got from this devastating time was through the Pink Cross. Honestly, if it weren’t for Pink Cross, I would be dead.

Shelley Lubben has truly been my inspiration and I hope that I become like her one day.  She is very personalized with the sex workers rather than passive or aloof like many people who have organizations. She not only gave me advice, but also helped me get closer to God. She gave me a gift bag filled with lipstick, a book about God, and a signature letter telling me how special I am and how she was happy about how courageous I had been.

Before the Pink Cross, I felt like there was really no hope.

Genevieve describes her career in porn as “this devastating time” which left her feeling hopeless, and which, she assures us, would have led to her death if not for St. Shelley – so how extensive and death-defying was Genevieve’s porn career? A search of IAFD turned up nothing about her, but more info could be found in her “testimony” as published on Lubben’s eponymous website.

Informed readers can feel Lubben’s velvet touch right off the bat:

I started in porn in 2009 when I was only twenty years old. I loved and craved attention. I always believed that I was porn material because of how much attention I would get and how much love I would feel from it. My mother and father divorced five years ago and because of the emptiness I had felt for so long, I was desperate for love.

I remember browsing through ads on Craigslist when I approached one that attracted me. . . It said that they needed pretty, slender, curvy girls to make fast and easy money. I was astonished because I needed the money to pay for school and clothes and I was going to get the attention I always loved and wanted.

Genevieve describes only one porn shoot:

At the shoot, I was nervous and scared. I never did anything on camera before and I was thinking was how it would feel to actually do something that the whole world was going to see . . . . I waited desperately to start my video, make the money, and leave. But not only did starting the video take time, making it was also very painful and time consuming. At the time, I thought that porn was fast and easy. But they wanted to take so many pictures. So not only did the pictures take time, but the lighting and sex positions needed to be perfect.

My experience was very bad and I didn’t enjoy it at all when they started filming. I was so surprised because when I watched porn, it didn’t seem like it would be so hard to have sex on camera.

I didn’t do the sexual positions right . . . and I was irritable the whole day. The director didn’t really care how I felt; he only wanted to finish the video.

Genevieve also quit shooting porn without having to be rescued by Lubben. Years after Genevieve’s ‘ordeal,’ what did Lubben do for her? She gave her advice, talked about God, and mailed her a gift bag filled with lipstick, a book about God, and a signed letter of encouragement.

And we are supposed to accept that this literally saved her life — a life that had been endangered by porn?

In the penultimate line of Lubben’s latest pitch for easy cash, the woman who has made a career of insulting, belittling, demonizing, and perpetuating stigma against sex workers, writes:


Thank you for caring about what most people consider as "outcasts".

I wonder why they’re considered oucasts, Shelley? Could it be because of people like you who describe people in porn as a bunch of mentally ill, drug-infested, disease-ridden, sick, jaded, demonized, slaves of Satan? Could it be because you’ve recommended treating performers who need help like “wild animals” – not setting down food/treats too close to them because they might “bite you”?

And if that wasn’t vile enough, Lubben’s sign-off is enough to make a maggot gag:

Your donation will save a life today.

Not “may save a life today” — “will save a life today.”  This despite the fact that there’s only ever –- EVER — been one death on an adult set – Taylor Summers’ death at a private bondage photo shoot far from the LA “porn industry.” Not a single performer who can be shown to have contracted any illness on an adult set has died, Shelley. Who’s killing porn stars, Shelley? Why are they in such great mortal danger? When I attend an industry event, I don’t see terror in their eyes, Shelley. Eric Edwards began performing in 1969, and performed in five decades – he’s still kicking, Shelley.

Shelley Lubben is quite simply the worst person I have ever encountered. A con artist and fraud. A vilifier and defamer. A charlatan and exploiter. A hypocrite, liar and perverter of truth.

And her spectacular crack-up is a wonder to behold.
