Did LA Direct Models break the law yet again?

Did LA Direct Models break the law yet again?

According to an old old article on the Mike South website about Manwin being unable to buy up a talent agency because of a conflict of interest, I realized that Derek Hay and LA Direct Models has been doing that for a long time – I mean the conflict of interest part.

They have a direct interest in many of the girls personal websites and as such it would be a direct violation of California Labor Code section 1700.40.

 

(b) No talent agency may refer an artist to any person, firm, or corporation in which the talent agency has a direct or indirect

financial interest for other services to be rendered to the artist, including, but not limited to, photography, audition tapes, demonstration reels or similar materials, business management, personal management, coaching, dramatic school, casting or talent brochures, agency-client directories, or other printing.

(c) No talent agency may accept any referral fee or similar compensation from any person, association, or corporation providing services of any type expressly set forth in subdivision (b) to an artist under contract with the talent agency.

 

 

For years they’ve been violating US labor laws. Now this. Plus they’ve been double dipping, yet another violation (where they charge both the client and the talent booking fees. And that’s not even touching the whole escorting thing.

So why has nobody taken this jackass down yet?

HELLO? Plain and simple, he takes a percentage of money from the girls website. He has a DIRECT FINANCIAL INTEREST in them. How is this not a violation of the labor law?

John Stagliano is HIV Positive

Just so there is no confusion John Stagliano from Evil Angel is HIV positive. For those of us who have been in the industry for awhile now, we have known that for some time. That is no new news to us. But apparently to some new people in the industry, it is. They weren’t aware in the slightest that he in fact has HIV, the virus which causes aids. Why their agents didn’t make them aware of this fact prior to sending them to an Evil Angel set confuses me. I think the agent should disclose this very important bit of information up front when a girl agrees to take said booking.

Most recently it was revealed that despite the fact that John Stagliano is HIV positive, he still has sexual relations with other performers on the set of his movies. He might just stick his fingers in a girls ass or pussy, or he may give her oral sex or in at least one documented case, he took his dick out of his pants and rubbed it repeatedly UNPROTECTED against her opening – and yes that means an exchange of bodily fluids took place.

When this was revealed he went on record as saying he hasn’t tested positive for years – implying that maybe he never had HIV in the first place. But I want to be clear here, so there is no confusion ……………..

At this time, there is no cure for HIV for adults. So once you are positive, you are positive. Period. No exceptions. Not even Magic Johnson can claim to have been cured of HIV.

I personally had heard Magic Johnson was in fact the one guy who was cured of it, through a series of expensive blood washings, etc. Turns out I was wrong. Magic Johnson, who tested positive for HIV in 1991 is not cured of HIV. A doctor went on record as saying “He’s not cured. He’s on medication. His disease is, as I tell my patients, in remission.”

A person who is in fact HIV positive can be on their meds and that medicine can suppress his virus to undetectable levels – but that does not make you cured. It just means that while you are taking your meds, your illness is being suppressed – that means the meds are doing what they are supposed to do, keeping your ass alive. However that being said, if that HIV positive person were to go off of those drugs, the virus in the blood would return “within a very short period of time — a week, two weeks. “If you re-check the blood for the virus, it comes right back.”

It’s not unusual for a person with HIV to appear healthy or even athletic, but that the virus never goes away. Once you have HIV, you have HIV.  There is no cure for HIV.

A person once they test positive has that same blood sample retested by two or three times, to ensure accuracy of the initial test. Then the person has another test done with new blood and it is tested and then re-tested so ensure the first batch of tests weren’t false positives. So we are all on the same page here, John Stagliano is HIV Positive. He tested positive for HIV and the test was confirmed. This wasn’t a mistake and no, he hasn’t been cured – as remember, there is no cure for HIV. He said himself that he has been on his medicine for years and that is the reason (if what he is saying is true) that his current tests haven’t shown detectable levels of the HIV virus, but he is not cured.

Having any sort of sexual relations with a person who is HIV positive will vastly increase your chance of getting it yourself. If you don’t want to get HIV then don’t have any sort of sexual relations with a person who is HIV positive. John Stagliano is HIV Positive.

This means, so again there is no confusion here – don’t let him stick his finger, tongue or dick in your pussy or ass hole.

 

 

Switzerland opens drive in sex boxes to make prostitution safer

They look like shelters for hikers in a national park, but these wooden sheds in Switzerland have a rather less innocent purpose – they provide a discreet location for men to have sex with prostitutes. [source]

sex boxes

swisssexboxes_2646171c

The drive-in “sex boxes” as they are being called, will be officially opened on August 26, as part of a drive by authorities in Zurich to regulate prostitution, combat pimping and improve security for sex workers.

The nine garage-style structures, located in a former industrial zone in the west of the city, have been organised with typically Swiss precision.

Drivers will have to follow a clearly marked route along which up to 40 prostitutes will be stationed.

Once they have chosen one of the women and negotiated a fee, they will drive into one of the wooden sheds, which are hung with posters advocating the use of condoms and warning of the risk of Aids.

The sex boxes are equipped with alarms which the prostitutes can activate if they feel in danger from a client.

The site is only open to drivers of cars – pedestrians and men on motorbikes are not allowed – and will operate from early evening until 5am each day.

The sex boxes are one of several measures intended to reduce the large numbers of prostitutes plying their trade in residential areas and in the city centre, including a ban on soliciting along the Sihlquai river embankment.

Men who solicit street workers outside three new approved zones, including the cluster of sex boxes, will face fines of up to 450 francs (£310).

“We want to regulate prostitution because until now it was the law of the jungle,” said Michael Herzig, from Zurich’s social welfare department, when the initiative was announced.

“It was the pimps who decided the prices, for instance. We are trying to reach a situation which is better for the prostitutes themselves, for their health and security and also for people who live in Zurich.”

The £1.4 million project was approved by voters in Zurich last year in a referendum.

While prostitution is legal in Switzerland, sex workers have to pay a tax of five Swiss francs (£3.50) each night that they work.

Zurich authorities said the number of prostitutes working in the city had increased markedly in recent years, with many of them coming from Eastern Europe, particularly Hungary.

 

Is Mr. Marcus Back?

After all the things that that jackass did I was floored that AVN was quoting him in one of their recent stories. Fuck him and fuck AVN for supporting him or talking to him or having anything to do with him.

Mr. Marcus Sneaking Back Into the Business?

source

It’s truly unfortunate that adult performer Alicia Tyler, at the tender age of 27, was found dead from cause or causes not yet known.

Tyler, according to AVN, had just launched a comeback to the industry after being on hiatus since 2009 following the birth of her daughter. She was found dead Sunday at her mother’s California home. Apparently she had a history of stomach issues and asthma.

What I think is more unfortunate about this whole incident is that AVN chose to quote Mr. Marcus. And that confirms my suspicions that AVN is backdooring Marcus on us.

AVN states: Mr. Marcus, who performed with Tyler in one of her first scenes, related to AVN, “She gave a passionate performance that felt natural and elevated the scene. You could consider her a sexual goddess with ample sex appeal. She was definitely a fan favorite.”

Of all people to quote- the guy whose selfish behavior revealed the lie that the adult industry fosters safe, health practices. Notice, too, that it’s Peter Warren who wrote the story, and it’s Rob Black who’s told you Warren is not to be trusted. Remember, it was Black who also broke the story that Marcus and Steve Hirsch were in talks to have Marcus directing for the Vivid.

Looks like the propaganda machine is in motion to cram Marcus down your throats whether you like it or not.

Study Confirms that Everyone Lies About Sex

In what is probably not a big surprise to many, a new study out confirms that everyone lies about sex. {source}

Someone’s got a secret…

I do my best to be as honest as possible. Telling the truth is just so much easier than lying. Unfortunately there are some people that can’t handle the truth and you will get a reputation for being a prick. At least you’re an honest prick rather than a lying prick.

There is one exception to my honesty policy and it’s sex.

To be honest with you I don’t know why I feel so compelled to lie about sex but I am. I’ve been lying about sex since before I even started having sex.

I lost my virginity to my high school girlfriend in senior year. We dated for six months before she was ready to have sex. God knows I tried to have sex with her every single day of those six months. Right as I was about to finally put my penis in her vagina and lose my virginity once and for all she stopped and said, “You’ve done this before, right?”

“Yes,” I replied without any hesitation. It was just a reflex. There I was, about to have sex for the first time (which I’m convinced to this day that she knew I was also a virgin because we had talked about it before) and I lied about sex.

Ever since then lying about sex has been second nature.

A new study by Ohio State University confirms that I’m not the only one lying about sex. It turns out everyone lies about sex!

293 college students between the ages of 18 and 25 were asked to complete a questionnaire about 124 different behaviours while connected to a lie detector.

When asked about their sex lives, the men participating claimed to have more sexual partners when they weren’t connected to the lie detector than when they were connected. The women of the study claimed to have fewer sexual partners without the lie detector than when they were connected to the lie detector.

On average the women had more sexual partners than the men.

“There is something unique about sexuality that led people to care more about matching the stereotypes for their gender,” said Terri Fisher, the study’s author and a professor of psychology at OSU. “Sexuality seemed to be the one area where people felt some concern if they didn’t meet the stereotypes of a typical man or a typical woman.”

So there you have it, everybody lies about sex.

If everybody is doing it then there’s nothing wrong with it, right?

Is PORN.ORG worth the hefty price tag?

I read today over at XBIZ that porn.org is up for sale through one of those fancy pants domain brokers which means they expect to fetch a pretty penny for the domain name. Although they say they “welcome all offers”, I suspect their asking at least 7 figures for it.

Yet the question is … is this domain really worth a huge investment or any kind?

It has the age on it, with an original registration of 1995.  It’s only a PR3, with an Alexa rank of 327,271.  At this very moment LukeFord.com (this site) has is a PR4 with an Alexa ranking of 291,998 – quite a bit better than porn.org. But here is where that site has it over this one … the keyword potential. The other site says they have over 8,300 unique visitors a day on average. I don’t suspect that’s actually true. I think if I was the buyer I would want to see some verified server logs before I believed that one.

But that issue aside this site does have the potential to bring in that kind of traffic from search engines alone and that is what makes a domain like porn.org valuable. There are very very few valuable .org porn domain names. ie: sex.org or porn.org – maybe tits.org or something like that. But basically you get the idea … one very common short word domain names only.

I think we all get that search engine traffic is extremely valuable. Simply put, the more of it you can get to your site, the more money you are going to make. Because it is so targeted, it converts better. Case in point – I search for Kim Kardashian, I find the top 10 sites about Kim Kardashian from my chosen search engine, click the link that best matches my desires – now that site has someone looking for something they offer.

More people search “porn” each day than they do “Luke Ford” so a domain name like porn.org is clearly far more valuable than this domain name Lukeford.com based on it’s massive potential alone. It’s simple math – more people a day search for “porn” than they do “Luke Ford”.

BUT all of that being said, does it make that domain worth $1 million +?

No. Because a domain has potential, which will attract buyers … doesn’t mean it is worth that much to the buyer initially. The site still doesn’t have a lot of authority, page rank or traffic. So while the domain does have a great amount of potential in terms of SEO, it’s untapped potential and that means whoever buys this domain name has to do all of the work.

If you Google the word porn, you know what you aren’t going to find? porn.org. At least not on the first page and not on the second or third page either.It’s not in the top 10 for “porn” at Bing.com either and it’s because of this, that the actual value of the domain name itself is significantly lowered and nowhere near worth 7 figures that the domain is rumored to be going for.

 

_________________________________

Porn.org owners have announced they will sell their adult domain name, including website, via Domain Guardians, a domain firm.

Current owner, Vivo Productions said, “The adult industry has and always will have a strong user base online. The buyer of this domain will position themselves as a leading authority and benefit from the existing traffic stream the domain already receives.”

According to the owners, the site was registered in 1995 and is a category-defining generic top-level domain generating approximately 3 million unique visitors annually with 11,000 inbound affiliate links.

“The owner is a motivated seller and in my professional opinion has priced the domain in line with current market conditions. We urge all interested parties to contact us for more information and welcome all offers. The seller is ready to pass on the baton and willing to negotiate,” said Mike Robertson of Domain Guardians.

Brazzers hires Gay Porn Star for Straight Movies

It seems Manwin owned Brazzers has recently put Danny D under contract. The problem? Danny D is also gay male porn star Matt Hughes. It wasn’t to long ago that Brazzers spoke out saying how they wouldn’t shoot crossovers (those guys who did both gay porn and straight porn) because of the increased risk of HIV exposure. Plus there are a lot of female stars who just flat out (and rightfully so) won’t perform with male porn stars who do gay or tranny porn and who also do straight porn.

Hey, what’s a little HIV risk between friends, right?

Today Kurt Lockwood tweeted – @christianxxx1 R U still fucking trannies bareback? Because I’m working w @CaliHayesXXX tomorrow & it sucks that you double dip & add risk

Kurt Lockwood isn’t alone in his concern over the added risk of HIV exposure when you hire those who do both gay and straight porn. So the question is, what is Manwin going to do?  Are they going to keep a gay performer under contract, to have sex with straight porn stars increasing their risk of HIV exposure?

Manwins Contract Boy Has A Gay Porn past [source – Mike South]

Remember how Brazzers/Manwin made lotsa noise about how they don’t shoot “crossovers”? Well Their newest Contract boy” Danny D, performed lots of gay porn as “Matt Hughes”.

If they had looked on their own tube sites they’d have known it.  I’m also hearing that Matt/Danny has, shall we say, some performance problems when working with the girls.

Now here’s what I REALLY don’t get…whats with the putting the gay performers in straight scenes anyway?  It seems that porners have forgotten all the rules for making successful straight porn…..No wonder this biz is in the toilet.
