This Story Makes Porn Anything But Sexy

By USDR

A UCLA Fielding School of Public Health research study of several hundred adult film industry performers presented (in poster form) earlier today at the CDC’s 2014 STD Prevention Conference in Atlanta confirmed that contrary to widespread industry spin, adult film performers face significant risks to their sexual health and well-being while working in the industry. One in four adult film performers (24%) participating in the study reported an infection of gonorrhea or chlamydia, two serious, but treatable sexually transmitted diseases, while working in the industry—confirming the high STD risk facing adult film performers at work.

“This study confirms the extremely high STD risk facing adult film workers each day as they go about their work on adult film sets throughout California and elsewhere”
Complete results of the study, titled: ‘Adult Film Performers Transmission Behaviors and STI Prevalence1’ were first made public Tuesday. The study included responses from 366 adult film performers, 274 of whom (75%) were women. The study was conducted between August 2012 and June 2013 and was conducted by UCLA Fielding School of Public Health’s Behavioral Epidemiology Research Group (with support from the California HIV/AIDS Research Program).
