Porn Performers- A Focus Group Needs You!

Note: Although this is primarily directed at porn performers, here in the Bay Area, lots of folks know someone who has been naked in front of a camera. Feel free to pass this along.

As many of you know, Cal-OSHA has been looking into requiring condom use among porn performers, even though the porn industry has been quite successful at avoiding HIV transmission through frequent testing. I just met a researcher who’s conducting focus groups and she’s looking for porn performers to interview in order to prepare for an upcoming hearing. Please pass this along to anyone who might be available today or tomorrow (Oct. 7 & 8 )

Also, there might be another focus group tonight, 10/7, at 7 pm at the Center for Sex & Culture if enough people can do it. If it fits your schedule, contact Dr. Chauntelle ASAP at dr.chauntelle@gmail.com.



Hi there!

My name is Dr. Chauntelle Anne Tibbals, and I need your help with something incredibly important.

As you may know, the state of California’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is currently investigating safety practices and precautions that occur on adult film production sets. Cal-OSHA members continuously ask for information from adult film talent “ What’s it like on set? Do you feel safe, like your health is protected? ¦those sorts of things.

In an effort to answer these questions, I am conducting a series of focus groups with people currently working as talent and I would love it if YOU would participate.

These are the locations/dates/times of groups:

San Francisco: 10/7 from 12-2,   10/7 from 3-5,   and   10/8 from 12/2

All groups will be held at Good Vibration “ 934 Howard Street (3rd floor)

And because I know your time is valuable, you will get a $50 Target gift card as a thank you for participating.

If you would like to sign up for one of the times, or you’re just thinking about it and have questions, email me at dr.chauntelle@gmail.com.  Space is limited so let me know asap, and I will give you the exact location.

This is super important, and your opinions and experiences are invaluable “ I really hope to hear from you soon!

Chauntelle

and FYI¦

Focus groups are kind of like mini group interviews and I will be tape-recording them, but don’t worry “ only myself and other people who are also working as talent will be present and all your responses will be kept confidential.

This study is supported by the industry trade organization Free Speech Coalition (FSC), but I am not affiliated with FSC in any way.  You may contact Diane Duke at diane@freespeechcoalition.com if you have any questions about this.
