  Notice to employees and employers in the adult film industry
Workers in this industry need to know there are laws written to protect them from injury and illness on the job, and where to go for help if their employer doesn't follow those laws.

Currently, some workers in the adult film industry are paid as employees (they get a paycheck with taxes and other deductions) and some are paid as independent contractors (they get a 1099 at the end of the year).

  Judge hears adult industry challenge
The adult entertainment restrictions in the bill include prohibiting customers or employees younger than 21 at strip clubs; banning full nudity; and requiring seminude employees to remain at least 10 feet from customers and behind a 2-foot-high railing.
The industry is basically challenging the law on two fronts: that it violates free-speech and expression rights under the First Amendment and that it violates state constitutional requirements that bills relate to one subject and remain tied to their original purpose.
Industry attorneys said there also is no good reason to bar people younger than 21 from working in or patronizing strip clubs.

All performers are required to have a PCR/DNA test every 30 days, and while the adult industry has gone to great lengths to reduce the performers’ chances of catching or spreading sexually transmitted diseases, there’s no guarantee there won’t be another HIV scare to hit the adult industry.
The Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (AIM) immediately went into motion to make sure that the virus was contained, first quarantining 12 women who had been identified as first-generation performers.
Otherwise, HIV outbreaks in the adult industry would be commonplace, effectively shutting down the industry, and possibly returning it to the days when porn directors went underground to shoot their films.

 The Adult Industry « blogging4class
The industry has also always been there to either develop new technology or to exploit existing technology in order to enhance their business and business processes.
While the adult industry developed and improved new technology, mainstream industries sat back and waited to incorporate this new technology into their business after it had been perfected by the industry.
Remarkable how an industry can generate so much revenue but no one is using the products and profits are rarely attributed to this part of their business.

 HIV Transmission in the Adult Film Industry --- Los Angeles, California, 2004
In the adult film industry, the increased potential for HIV/STD transmission is associated with basic practices, in that workers have multiple sex partners during short periods with whom they engage in frequent and often prolonged sexual acts.
By comparison, an analysis of a nationally representative sample of young adults aged 18--26 years during April 2001--May 2002 revealed prevalence of chlamydial infection among males and females to be 3.7% and 4.7% respectively, and, similarly, prevalence of gonorrhea to be 0.4% and 0.4%, respectively (5).
Workers in this industry need to be made aware of the risks associated with participation in various acts (8), to be able to participate in decision-making about their health and safety at work, and to benefit from prevention practices (9).

And that means that the virus could be still spreading within the industry, because third- and fourth-generation performers are not being quarantined; AIM simply lacks the resources to track that many performers that quickly.

Blancett concedes that adult site operators could go with willing mainstream hosts, but he points out that many are still likely to prefer dealing with a host they can be sure is aware of the intricacies of their businesses.
Adult hosts like NationalNet are staffed with technicians trained to handle the many specialized functions - such as high-volume streaming or video - that reside in adult hosting infrastructures.
Ultimately, it is the combination of willingness to work with adult material and the accumulated experience in dealing with technical issues unique to the adult Web hosting business that leads adult hosting customers to prefer the adult host - and to ensure the hosts themselves  are secure in their place within that niche.

 AdultFYI - ABC News: Porn Won't Decide Next Gen DVD War
Though you certainly weren't one of the people who indulged in watching adult entertainment on VHS tapes, millions of others were, and as a result it's widely believed that the adult entertainment industry's backing of VHS instead of Betamax, led to the VHS victory.
There are all kinds of reasons why the adult industry chose VHS — price, availability — but at the end of the day the release of a format that could be watched at home allowed anyone who wanted to enjoy an adult film the privacy to do so.
But for many adult video content creators, the decision is one of dollars and cents and the high cost of duplicating films on an expensive next-generation format that no one's sure will catch on is not a risk worth taking.
