Trade Group To Revive Adult Film Industry STI Database
The Free Speech Coalition, a San Fernando Valley-based adult film industry trade group, plans to revive a database that tracks adult film performers' test results for sexually transmitted infections. The Adult Performer Health and Safety Services database will provide adult film producers and agents with information on whether performers are available for work, but it will not reveal performers' specific test results. Diane Duke, executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, said she expects the STI testing to be complete and the database to be fully functional in about two months.
