I hate to be a bitch and I’ve quite honestly fought really hard with the other posters and owners of this site to clean up the kind of articles that get released lately at LukeFord.com. I want the site to be an informative news source about the adult industry and not a pile of bullshit posts with rumors, slander and pissing matches that this site really used to be. I’m really happy to say that over the last year things have really cleaned up the site. But that doesn’t mean from time to time we have to speak out and point out some negative issues that go on in our industry and today is a perfect example of that.
It’s an election year and that means porn is always in the spotlight and anything any of us do can be a huge problem because the media or some jack ass politician looking for an easy target can make it out to be a bigger issue than it really is.
I’ve been seeing a lot of press releases lately from Wicked Pictures promoting one of their contract stars as a sex expert. Today I seen a blog post calling her an “Emerging Sexual Wellness Authority”. That bothers me.
Turns out it is a felony for anyone to pretend to be a medical expert when they are not. You can’t just going around saying you are a doctor when you aren’t or in this particular case without actually saying “doctor” they are instead implying expert or authoritative knowledge in this specific area of study which is usually attributed to those with a degree in psychology or related area of study. So telling people you are an authority when you aren’t really can be a very big deal … perhaps even fraud and a felony.
So today when I seen this porn star promoting them self as an “Emerging Sexual Wellness Authority” it really bugged me a lot. This bothers me greatly because in the end the actions of those in the spotlight in our industry has great influence over all of our lives and careers.
If someone goes around pretending they are an expert or promotes themselves as a doctor or some kind of actual medical expert and they aren’t, then it can have a negative impact on all of us. Because much like the condom issue, we have all seen how quickly an issue can get out of hand. All it takes is the right fuck up in the wrong hands and things can get ugly really quick.
I have 52 different press releases from Wicked Pictures that in some way shape or form refer to Jessica Drake as a “sexual wellness authority”. Not 1, not 2, not 10 but FIFTY TWO!!!!!!!
I looked into it before making this post just to make sure I’m not mistaken but as I suspected, it turns out Jessica Dake, who has been promoting themselves as a “sexual wellness authority” doesn’t have a degree in that area of study or actually any degree at all from what I can find.
Despite some people in our industry like say Dr. Victoria Zdrok who actually has a PhD in Clinical Psychology who also happens to be a former Playboy Playmate and Penthouse Pet of the Year. She also did a few adult movies as well. But again she has a PhD and that makes her an actual AUTHORITY on sexual wellness.
Apparently just having sex with a lot of men makes this porn star and Wicked Pictures and their related PR team feel entitled to call her an “Emerging Sexual Wellness Authority” and that is a huge problem.
We have enough issues in our industry right now … do we really need to add to it by letting the mainstream media or politicians know that a porn star who no degree in this area of study and has spent years in a damaging relationship with a married man, is claiming to be an “authority on sexual wellness”?
She isn’t a doctor. She has no degree of study in this field. SO QUIT PROMOTING HER AS AN AUTHORITY IN THIS FIELD! SHE’S A PORN STAR NOT A CERTIFIED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL Believe it or not there is a major difference between the two.
Sucking a lot of cock doesn’t make you an authority on sexual wellness. Nor does sleeping with a married man make you an expert of relationships. It actually kinda makes you just the opposite but that’s another story for another day.
I have no problem with porn stars. Love them. In fact, I’ve worked very hard to help many of them improve their lives for years now. Think what they do is great but trying to saying a porn star is an expert on sexual wellness is just asking for trouble and more government regulation or other related troubles for our industry.
There are a lot of porn stars out there who are highly educated with advanced degrees. And to those girls I say good for them! I truly hope that one day you can use those advanced degrees like Victoria Zdrok has done and combine what she has learned in the porn industry with her degrees to write books and even get hired as a legal expert and she regularity speaks on the talk show circuit and I think writes article son sexual wellness for Penthouse too – well at least she did for awhile.
But for those of you who don’t have a degree in clinical psychology or a related field, just being a porn star doesn’t make you an authority on all matters. You make be able to suck a hell of a cock but that’s a far cry from an authority on sexual wellness.
So to make this clear so there is no confusion … while there are porn stars with advanced degrees, Jessica Drake does not seem to have one, at least not one that I found after reading numerous published biographies and interviews about her. She most especially does not have a degree in psychology or any related medical field that make make her an expert or authority on sexual wellness. She’s a porn star. Making porn is her area of expertise. Sexual wellness is not and continuing to say you are is fraudulent and quite possibly criminal.
And calling me a bitch doesn’t make this fact any less true. Fraud is fraud and liking me or not liking me doesn’t really change that.
