FSC and Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS.org) would like to show appreciation to all that attended the APHSS.org meeting held on July 10, which addressed issues around performer testing, as well as updated information on Los Angeles’ pending mandatory condom legislation in the city and county.
Special thanks to XBIZ Magazine, XBIZ owner Alec Helmy and his crew, that provided resources which enabled the meeting to be broadcast via live stream on industry forum XBIZ.net. More than 30 industry members that were unable to attend in-person watched the proceedings online.

The meeting was a huge success. Complicated issues were discussed in an open forum by industry stakeholders, which brought more clarity to the current situation involving performer testing and the condom ordinance/County ballot initiative. Speakers at the meeting included Kink.com founder Peter Acworth; infectious disease expert Dr. Miao (Cutting Edge Testing); labor attorney Karen Tynan; industry attorney Allan Gelbard; and FSC’s Executive Director Diane Duke.
